Wearing the Obsidian Cloak

We wear the cloak
Of obsidian black
For our sorrows
Mocking oblivion
We are the entrants
To modern Babylon
Our ears hear the sound
From demonic chants
All are cursed
In chains of flesh bound
And we shake in pain
Of the truth
We are the cause
We built hell
We are proof
Given Eden
We choose death
Given life
We choose the end
Given hope
We elect despair
We built this place
We poured out blame
We burned our beings
We embraced shame
Hell is our own creation
To punish our selves
For our greatest crime
Of destroying Eden
Destroying our world
There is nothing left
But our own guilt
We are unforgiven
By our own embrace
