This song is by Assemblage 23 and appears on the album Contempt (1999) and on the album Addendum (2001).

Fall, seize
I am merely debris
Scattered along the ground

False rage
A man in a cage
An explosion without a sound

Drawn in
By the deafening din
Crumbling into dust

Look down
Watching me drown
Choking on my disgust

And when I surface again
I will not breathe the same air as you
And once my enemies are slain
My lungs will drink the liquid sky

Sink, sleep
Drawing me deep
Pulling me underneath

Push, strain
For the distant terrain
Struggling just to breath

Freeze, fold
A story untold
A disaster that could have been

A precursor perhaps
To the cruelest collapse
A sign that I should have seen

And when I surface again
I will not breathe the same air as you
And once my enemies are slain
My lungs will drink the liquid sky

Burst through
The smothering blue
Falling into the sky

Rebirth
For whatever its worth
If only just to defy

Crush, burn
With little concern
Feasting upon my prey

Tear, rend
Expediting the end
Of everything in my way

And when I surface again
I will not breathe the same air as you
And once my enemies are slain
My lungs will drink the liquid sky
