The Agonist - And Their Eulogies Sang Me To Sleep lyrics

All I heard was the sound of fish who'd drowned
All I saw was the inside of my eyelids
All I said fell short of reaching open ears

Words floating, clouding the view
"See no, hear no, speak no evil"
Leaves you deaf, dumb and blind
Because the bad is all you'll find
A deeply heart-felt goodbye
To the part of me that died
When I decided to put others before me
Yes, my heart fell asleep - boredom and fatigue

I always said I wanted to die smiling
To pretend I'm at peace
Now from my corpse beams a frigid, blank grin
And once hopeful eyes are sunken in
Like a lullaby to the cradle
Is the eulogy to the casket
All my flaws swept under the table
To grieve the porcelain doll that was me

Their solemn songs sang me to sleep
As my body escaped me

(Welcome down into the New World
Happiness is being interred)
Such a shameful masquerade
Fleeting, frozen minutes on display
Why is evolution such a shameful thing to say?
Can you feel your bodily decay?
(Arms are beside me, hands open wide
Seems I was living my life in rewind
Taking so many steps backwards
Not looking behind)

Because I can sure as hell
Feel my brain going blank
If my body betrays me
There's pollution to thank
This condition infects my cells
Like it controls my mind
Internal army, defend me
Behind enemy lines
Fragile vehicle of mine
Don't abandon me yet
There is so much to live for
That we so easily forget

Fascination with the fear
The concept escapes me
All encompassing fate
How it wrenches our hearts
Torments our souls
And sings us all to sleep
To an eternal keep
No matter what beliefs
It sweetly sings us all
