Sacrifice (The Agony Scene)

We die one thousand deaths They held us close to taste the flames A sacrifice To pacify the god they've made The stench of stagnant blood Collects in pools of misery they drained from us and stained themselves in blasphemy We are the sacrifice Our tainted offering We are the sacrifice Now you will share our suffering We steal a final breath A tattered veil averts our eyes from their hypocrisy Their cruel intent hidden by lies The silence lingering Like the condemned waiting to die In darkest red Reflecting back beneath the light We are the sacrifice Our tainted offering We are the sacrifice Now you will share our suffering In the eyes of our father From the tears of our mother, shame We are the sacrifice Our tainted offering We are the sacrifice Now you will share our suffering
