The Agonist – Immaculate Deception Lyrics

Lyrics Immaculate Deception – The Agonist

If you look at the face of evil
Evil will look right back at you

They raise their pitchforks to the sky
Summoning the moon as their guide
Their dragging feet march on the slab
To the beat of an absent snare drum
A vision unseen of bodies dancing in the night
For the beauty in unison cannot be denied

You can nail them to the cross
You can burn them at the stake
But their sins will never be forgiven

Would you trade an arm and a leg
For the promise of time

Memories fade as new thought is created
They kindly move out for the good to take their place
The hope of redemption will never undo your wrongs
Time is unforgiving to those who try to run

For those who see the world as evil, let me tell you this
Even cruel actions have a purpose to fulfill
They’ll sing in places you thought no notes were even left
‘Cause you see, in the end, music would not live in an evil world
If you look at the face of evil
Evil will look right back

Would you trade an arm and a leg
For the promise of time

Memories fade as new thought is created
They kindly move out for the good to take their place
The hope of redemption will never undo your wrongs
Time is unforgiving to those who try to run

These hands are unforgiving
To those who try to run
These hands are unforgiving
To those who try to run…
