lyrics

Carry me
Away from the battlefield
Off my shield
As the sun sinks down
Tell my family
I'm not coming home
I have turned death back beneath me
Calling out to me alone

Carry me
On broken wings
To my home
through that hole in the sky
this lifeless body
emitting radiation

to that place they once called home

they gave us this planet
we destroyed it with lies
we destroyed with greed
they have come to take it back


on broken wings
they carry me
my lifeless body
through that hole in the sky
to a plane of consciousness
to the thrones of judgement
the palace is in shambles
is this what you call heaven?
is this what you call hell?
is this what they say the afterlife is?
is this all just a dream within itself?
is this all there is?
is this my own personal hell?
or have i been mistaken this whole time
is this all just in my mind?
does this all just exist within a universe inside myself
how will i ever know the truth when my beliefs are what cause me to fail
i'm tired of always asking questions
i'm tired of being fed lies
i'm tired of not knowing the answers of what lies beyond the sky
i'm tired of knowing all of this won't be answered until i die
i know there's more to life than this
something we can not comprehend
not religion…or science…or intelligent design
can comprehend
can understand this life
