lyrics

Only at the end of our time
Will we determine that we’re destined to die alone
Cold and tired, no way to avoid the decline
Into a world of failure and regret

Worn from reaching when nothing is there
Looking into fate’s eyes, I’m met with an empty stare
And now that all the things I live for are gone
It’s hard to find a reason to live on

This life is not a giving one
My strength has been reduced to none
Defeated, depleted, all trace of hope retreated
Condemned to never return

I need to find a place to bury all of my dreams
Because they’re dead and rotting
And I just can’t seem to escape this potent reek
The reek of defeat

Solo: Michaud

Bleeding hands attempt to heal broken hearts
But they are only tearing us apart
Stumbling to pick up shattered pieces life
My inner suffering is sharp as the knife

This life is such a shameful one
Lost souls under a dying sun
I’m hated, frustrated, conflicts that I’ve created
Strangled by lies and deceit

I need to find a place to bury all of my dreams
Because they’re dead and rotting
And I just can’t seem to escape this potent reek
The reek of defeat

I can’t escape the reek of defeat

Solo: Meehan

I need to find a place to bury all of my dreams
Because they’re dead and rotting
And I just can’t seem to escape this potent reek
The reek of defeat
