Cruel Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Cruel, cruel grounds
Leak truths never found
Torturous ways
Whisper from the grave
A slow spun song of distortion
Verse 2
bitter, bitter mouth
Spitin' out seeds of doubt
Rituals seek root
Razed before they're told
Stories break like branches in the cold
Verse 3
seasons trial finds man's mistakes fair game
Verse 4
careless hand
Lay and law of the land
Falls by the side
Silenced sentient cries
All within the lines of divine right
Verse 5
better bury the tracks in an unclosed case
Weeds of discontent choke a broken ghost landscape
Verse 6
cruel, heartless reign
Chasing short term gains
Right down to the warning signs
Verse 7
birds refuse to fly
No longer trust the sky
Drifting out beyond the signals
Verse 8
even the horizon is gone
Weather flees underground
Future's left to wallow in fortune's waste
