lyrics

[INTRO]
Rights rejected,
Held up to the light and inspected
The phantom lies beneath,
One truth you’ll pray to keep.

[VERSE I]
A spirit, levelled.
Fallen prey to dark carnality,
No mediation,
Bites down on my humanity.
Bites down on my humanity.

[BREAKDOWN]
Flawed by design,
An ageless terror awakes,
Crawling inside,
Just waiting for the glass to break.

[CHORUS]
Revenant and figureless,
Hiding behind the broken lens.
Defiant to the end,
It's the Corinthian in me.

[VERSE II]
Etched on your memory,
The rot that takes away through time.
I feel it tearing every inch. of. my. life,
(all consuming)
Spectral rising,
(legion leading)

[INTERLUDE]
Flawed by design,
Just waiting for the glass to break.

[EXTENDED CHORUS]
Revenant and figureless,
Hiding behind the broken lens.
Defiant to the end,
It's the Corinthian in me.
Searching through the darkened glass
There’s no truth in what you see,
Surface raised through time gone past,
It’s the Corinthian in me…

[OUTRO BUILD]
Brings out the Corinthian in me

[OUTRO]
Rights rejected,
Held up to the light and inspected
The phantom rise within,
Brings out the Corinthian in me.
[END
