August Burns Red - The Wake Lyrics

Destroy everything, cleanse Wipe away the filth, set fire to your waste Burn everything, back into dirt Burn everything

Flood, drown the earth Flood, drown the earth It’s what we deserve

Rehash the poisons, you breathe in the air Tear down what you say your Father created Constructing buildings over buildings Conceal history like a shameful scar This world has lived for a million years with more to come It’s only a matter of time until you choke on your indifference Struggling to breathe as the water fills your lungs Trying hard to scream as it rises into your throat

The reckless, the careless Will reign until the oceans rise

Flood, drown the earth Flood, drown the earth It’s what we deserve It’s what we deserve It’s what we deserve It’s what we deserve It’s what we deserve

This world has lived for a million years with more to come It’s only a matter of time until you choke on your indifference Struggling to breathe as the water fills your lungs Trying hard to scream as it rises into your throat

Wake up and save yourself The sea will reclaim what it worked to create Wake up, save yourself Pick up the pieces, ask for forgiveness
