Break the circle into pieces
Live forever by degrees
Wait for the answer to the question
Aren't you sick and tired of all the lies?

Break the circle into sections
Live forever on your knees
Listen up and you'll hear the cries
As everything around me dies

FUGUE washes over, pulls me under
FUGUE drowning in the sound
FUGUE my only ally, my only weapon
FUGUE taking over

Scratch at the surface of what you believe
Look underneath, you won't like what you see
A circle of lies disguised as the truth
You can't even see it, they say nothing breaks it,
well let me show you

My anger reigns across the land
and the rank and file die where they stand
I've no one but myself to blame
And you'll Lament the day you learned my name

Death is the dance. Blood is the song. Pulse is the tempo that's pushing me on
Hate is the harmony. Murder the melody. Covering the land with the blackest of symphonies
Shatter the circle that keeps us apart. Lighting the fires that they couldn't start
Rivers of blood as they die in the dark, but it's never enough for my cold black heart

The circle is eternal. It protects and surrounds us. It provides definition, strength and purpose. The circle is eternal, and will never break
Legends tell of a great warrior named Saveau. Destroyer of armies. A man so powerful, that even death itself cannot touch him.
But even he cannot escape the circle.
And so it rages, the battle eternal. The warrior who can never die, against the circle that will never, ever break.
