lyrics

Self is not a temple
That falls on your head
It’s a hard silver hammer
That’s placed in your hand

Spread before my vision
A multitude of lives
Murmuring cries for mercy
Only one can survive

Self is not a temple
That falls on your head
It’s a hard silver hammer
That’s placed in your hand

Who will survive this journey?
To the red wet gaping mouth of the grave
I have burned my coat of many colours
I am pliant and plain

Self is not a temple
That falls on your head
It’s a hard silver hammer
That’s placed in your hand

The moments bring new murder
To the beat of drum and fife
I am killer, I am creator
Every second is a knife

It’s so hard to know
Who becomes you the best
And who will be waiting
When you lay down to rest

But self is not a temple
That falls on your head
It’s a hard silver hammer
That’s placed in your hand
