Shameless

Take up arms

I am fighting for

I am crying for

I am praying for

I am seeking

Something shameless

Stay out Sheol

I am preparing the war cries

I am constructing

Walls and Warriors

Battalions and Bridges

That’ll keep a thousand slaying dragons

From borrowing darkness

And sowing seeds of meaningless seduction

 

Sisters, hear Cassandra screaming truths

Making runners out of sleeping youths

I, I am making something new

Unmarred

Unhindered by the deceptions

That quietly steal into our hearts.

We are seeking things shameless.

We are speaking plain, face us.

Creep out pain quick, escape us.

Let fleeting things fleet fast

Let weeping not sustain us.

 

Brothers, leave the carcasses

You slew of skin

You knew you should never be walking in

Seek some other space for the slaying of years

And pick up the swords

To defend a castle, shameless

Walk tall

Soldiered lines of men

Cross a sea blameless.

You’ll not surrender to let lust entertain us.

 

See life within yourself recreate us

A Spirit strong that will reclaim us.

 

Take up arms

We are fighting for

We are crying for

We are praying for

We are seeking

Something shameless

Stay out Sheol

We are preparing the war cries

We are constructing

Walls and Warriors

Battalions and Bridges

That’ll keep a thousand slaying dragons

From borrowing darkness

And sowing seeds of meaningless seduction
