Lyrics of 'System Syn – Knives'

no won­der you’re disappointed
you spend your days expect­ing us to care
but the only thing you’re offering
is shar­ing your despair

alive or dead
there’s no mys­tery to the road ahead
still we must play out our lives
reach for con­nec­tions in the darkness
we’re all blind
yet we still swing our knives

are you long­ing for the touch
of anoth­er sight­less soul
though these trans­it­ory nights
will always take their toll

alive or dead
there’s no mys­tery to the road ahead
still we must play out our lives
reach for con­nec­tions in the darkness
we’re all blind
yet we still swing our knives
we still swing our knives

you spilled your heart into a chalice
passed it around to sate their thirst
when it returned so dry and hollow
all your hope had been dispersed
I have no answers to your questions
I am just as lost as you
I feel the bur­den of the absence
of the mercy we were due

Is it a func­tion of our humanity
that we forever fall apart
as end­lessly we play out our lives
reach for con­nec­tions in the darkness
we’re all blind
yet we still swing our knives

alive or dead
there’s no mys­tery to the road ahead
alive or dead
there’s no mys­tery to the road ahead
so swing your knife
