lyrics

V:
Now that I can see the end
Can I do what must be done?
Can I learn to control
This monstrosity inside?

In myself I know I can find
All the things I despise
But what am I now
If I am not God?

What if we fail, what if we fall?
What if our reach exceeds our grasp?
Can we sustain a defeat of this size?
A war with uncertain odds?
What I'm weak, and what if I'm wrong?
Just a shepherd leading the flock astray?
Can we bear another failure?

The ugly truth of us
Cosmic triumvirate
Combating death with death
My faith in us is wavering

Preserving life with blood
No knowledge or culture left
History a grand failure
Evolution was just a joke

What if we fail, what if we fall?
What if our reach exceeds our grasp?
Can we sustain a defeat of this size?
A war with uncertain odds?
What I'm weak, and what if I'm wrong?
Just a shepherd leading the flock astray?
Can we bear another failure?

What if we fail, what if we fall?
What if our reach exceeds our grasp?
Can we sustain a defeat of this size?
A war with unknowable odds?
What I'm weak, and what if I'm wrong?
Just a shepherd leading my flock astray?
Can I sustain another failure?

We do not get the luxuries of death
Our identities remain nameless

We will not live to ever see
The world we fight and die for

We do not get the luxuries of life
A sweet embrace, a caress denied

All that we love and all we know
Not even remembered by the dust of stars

Plagued by our vague humanity
We were always such a brilliant disease
Plagued by our vague humanity
Yet even disease can have beauty

What if we fail, what if we fall?
What if our reach exceeds our grasp?
Can we sustain a defeat of this size?
A war with uncertain odds?
What I'm weak, and what if I'm wrong?
Just a shepherd leading the flock astray?
Can we bear another failure?

What if we fail, what if we fall?
What if our reach exceeds our grasp?
Can we sustain a defeat of this size?
A war with unknowable odds?
What I'm weak, and what if I'm wrong?
Just a shepherd leading my flock astray?
Can I sustain another failure?
