City of Delusion

Lyrics

Stay away for me
Build a fortress and shield your beliefs
Touch the divine as we fall in line

Can I believe
When I don't trust
All your theories turn to dust
I choose to hide
From all seeing eye

Destroy this city of delusion
And break these walls down
And I will avenge
And justify my reasons with your blood

You will not rest
Or settle for less
Until you guzzle and squander what's left

Do not deny
That you live
And led die

Destroy this city of delusion
And break these walls down
And I will avenge
And justify my reasons with your blood
Destroy this city of delusion
And break these walls down
And I will avenge
And justify my reasons with your blood

Extra information

Meaning

Matt: The finishing touches of this song happened in Italy. We got help from an Italian violist who's into 19th century music. It's as influencal, as imported as like Flamenco. He helped with of the string arrangement.

Lyrically it's has a similar subject like Assassin. About a person who wants to do something pretty brutal to dismantle the reality we're living in.
