Make Us Crawl, We Make You Burn

Carry over
The sky is turned red
With dementia on hands
All we ever did was taking an order
Little for much
As river turns blood
We drank from your sin's
Now blame us to see the stars tonight
Different perspectives
I know is so confusing
But even though we ever fought
We dare to look at you again

While the sunset fall
We share the moon so cold
Hitting the walls
The sky is still dark
Prayers keep praising
Even though we still crawl

Welcome
The night is young
Sacrifice us
We have come so far yet so close
The years took on us
Upon the remains
Yet so uneasy
Martyr might be the key
Curses while the witch burn
The witch you never exposed
You or me?
This time I refuse
No one will ever
Everyone always do
I could explain a thousand times
I didn't meant to carry over the world
Mountains so high
The candles so far
Yet the only hope we all have
Simply crawl
The time will come

While the sunset fall
We share the moon so cold
Hitting the walls
The sky is still dark
Prayers keep praising
Even though we still crawl
With blood on our hands
Sins on our backs
Cling to us
While we still on the floor
Dragging to you
Our only hope
Please bury us alive
Tonight
The sun
Will never rise tomorrow
Never again

I know I did so wrong
Even though we fell
The mountains
So high above
While we are set unknown
Hope the sky
Will come for us
Because we always served
But now
We are set unknown 
Dusk will burn
Red
Tonight
The ice will melt
For a future
So much far away
A future we don't belong
A day we saw drown
We made this
We suffer it
We must pay in flames.
