Destroyer 666 - Human All Too Human

Song Rating: 8.62/10

Song lyrics:

Is it with sadness you hang your head, or shame?
Is it your burden that leaves you bloodstained...?
No song, no words, will ease your regret
No drug, no love will let you forget

For they are but fleeting, like words in the wind
Wild nights, sobered by the dawn
For they are without meaning, like honourless men
Broken vows laid bare before the dawn

Like a wild dog ensnared, youll eat yourself free
To rejoin the shadow of the hunting jaguar
I once believed I held the answer in the palm of my hand
And toyed with it like a child

No song, no words, will ease your regret
No drug, no love will let you forget



On the brink of self-annihilation
A lightning strike revelation:
How easily that we lie for our shallow love and hollow pride
How vainly we do attempt to stem the tide of consciousness
How easily we are led on the merry dance to our d**h
How willing that we follow to our doom, to our sorrow!

How entranced we are by the fire
Or enslaved to our own desires
Human - all too f**ing human!

Watch the naked ape
Grovelling before the stars
Scratching at the sky
Your trials and tribulations
They reek of self-infatuation

Human - all too f**ing human!
