By What We Refuse

The world was undone
We were beasts running rampant
Our lust was in our mouths with the law to justify it's purpose
We had our own ideas of what righteous was
And we staged it all of our minds
It was dishonest and a little bit cheap,
But it made the way for our war anthems
Our love was weaker, so we drew from our hate
It's all we had
We could fight our foes if we became the beasts that we claimed to slay
Ignore the strings
We had created a new law, and no one forced our hands
You were replaced by our needs
We bought our righteousness with what we had refused
Like all laws
Fail or flee
I failed the law
