ROOTS OF EVIL

ROOTS OF EVIL

We’re walking on a tightrope
Above the gates of hell
There to harden our fall
At the bottom of the well
Souls that only suffer
They’re calling out our names
We’re walking into their arms
Directly into the flames
Unmoved by the heat
Marching blindly into defeat, we fall…

Roots of Evil, taking hold
Roots of Evil, reaching into our very souls
We’re in their grip, we’re under control

Of the root that which flowers
The gentle scent we hold so dear
From far below the spell was cast
And now the time draws near
You’ve been led on, I followed
Shall we meet the same fate
Will my path in time be hallowed
If I follow you through the gate
Unmoved by the heat
Marching blindly into defeat, we fall…

Roots of Evil, taking hold
Roots of Evil, reaching into our very souls
We’re in their grip, we’re under control

I punish myself for your crimes
And you watch but don’t see my pain
I see myself as you time after time
Never once was anything gained
Still I’m following you
And the very root of your evil…

You’ve been led on, I followed
Shall we meet the same fate
Will my path in time be hallowed
If I follow you through the gate
Unmoved by the heat
Marching blindly into defeat, we fall…
