Track eight of Derelict's 2012 album, 'Perpetuation'.


Thrown to the ground
The graven image of a savior
Tallying betrayals
To count them all down

Frailty revealed
The covenants are quickly tested
But nothing here is healed
Shackles shed have left deep wounds

Seeing ones self in the light

And will we purify?
Savor the triumph of a thousand lies revealed?

Or will we end each other, end our own?
Lost to the sands of time in chaos and despair

Solace, intangible
Seeking concrete definitions
Revelation dealt its blows
Hidden strings and hardened skins

Behind, an empty cell
Still limiting imagination
Housing our despair
And doubt in the self-wrought


from Perpetuation, released April 20, 2012
