Impulse x

In a prism of unbreakable texture

We are sliding with incredible speed

With a fear that thousands captures,

To form its human shield

In the moment the past is forgotten

Remembrance is lost in a haze

And the haunted in time will grant us

With the smell of their shallow graves

Death takes in with the tight embrace

Swiftly shatters everyone’s future

Def will never hear us pray

And history won’t fix the rapture

In a prism of unbreakable texture

We’ll be sliding with incredible speed

Where the only ones who’ll be near

Are demons we tried to kill
