​Contra: Second Temple

This song is by Eidola and appears on the album Degeneraterra (2015).

On the day you sold your faith for a chance to be heard
You spoke so softly that no one could make out your word
With all those thoughts on salvation you've yet to convey
And the constant maintenance of yourself on display

Are you okay?

I feel the weight of the world
Reshape, reform and progress
I hear the dissonance of ignorance
Relive, retain and convalesce

Am I cursed to walk the earth empty handed and afraid
Of every tangible outcome or every possible mistake?
My eyes burn brighter with each passing gaze, and I know
That in the end I have numbered their days

So it goes

Oh, contra
We give you everything
To mean nothing at all

You're just a stranger
