​A Requiem For The Lost

This song is by Revolting Breed and appears on the album Rise Against (2007).

Walking among countless eyes unseen
Nails of wrath, guilt's for the weak
Remorse's drown in peaceful demonstrations
Lack of shame, untold confessions

Tragedy, life's absence logic unheard
This isn't death, nor human loss
No, no grief, no tears, no sympathy sold
The feast of sick desires drown in blood

Eyes that have imprisoned all fear
Screams leading the way, death's parade
Tears unnumbered, the beast must be fed
Dreams died for the price to be paid

No pain, no fear, just bleeding
Standing against the wall of my truth
No struggle, no fight
Collapsing all the predefined ways

Crashing down into mirrors
Reflecting untold obsessions
Words always told, acts never done
Betrayal of my own conscience

Tragedy, life's absence logic unheard
This isn't death, nor human loss
No, no grief, no tears, no sympathy sold
The feast of sick desires drown in blood

Walking among countless eyes unseen
Nails of wrath, guilt's for the weak
Remorse's drown in peaceful demonstrations
Lack of shame, untold confessions

Flesh among ruins, bodies still hugged
This is the world born from your vision
Nations destroyed, drown in fire and smoke
Lies lay between scattered body parts

In need of expression
In search for the truth
Excuses for being a part, a cause
Temporary acts of relaxation, an alibi
Until you start to embrace social fatigue

Running away, fleeting
Escaping, hunted again
Mind disobedience, aversion, disgust
Retaliate apathy, renouncing your ways

Tragedy, life's absence logic unheard
This isn't death, nor human loss
No, no grief, no tears, no sympathy sold
The feast of sick desires drown in blood
...Once more...

Acceptance of life in pure form
Breaking through walls guiding the no-act
Declaring myself that he's free of him

...Drown in the silence of solitude...

Eyes that have imprisoned all fear
Screams leading the way, death's parade
Tears unnumbered, the beast must be fed
Dreams died for the price to be paid
