Nothing is worse than this
I am a prisoner in purgatory
I left you to die alone
Now I am rooted here where nothing grows

I am stuck in a loop I don’t know how to break
It’s a binary code and I’m pushing escape
When the words that you say are just sounds that you make
You’re losing me

All I remember is this
I am a prisoner with no memories
I’ve sprouted the seeds I’ve sown
Now pushing the rock is all I know

Sentenced to wander
And diie of exposure over and over
Under open skies
of torrential pain

I hate the rain
I hate the darkness
I need to see the sun again
Feel the rays upon my skin

I hate the cold
I fear the heartless
I need to feel your love again
But until then I’m condemned
To purgatory

It’s time to be done with this
I am the sentient resistance of entropy
I was left here to climb alone
Now I release myself from this wretched stone

I am stuck in a loop I don’t know how to break
It’s a binary code, I’m pushing escape
Words that you say are just sounds that you make
You’re losing me

Have I not suffered enough?
So tired of rolling the stone
Paper handcuffs and shadow walls
Shackled here by guilt alone

Not one more day
I’m setting myself free
This will not be my grave

I’m trading in this mountain for another earthly

Chance just to wander
Regain my composure
Those days are over
Standing under open skies and I have a name
I beat the rain
I beat the darkness
I’ll live to see the sun again
I’ll face the cold
I’ll break the heartless
I’ll live to feel your love again
But as of now my sentence ends
In purgatory

I’m trading in this mountain for another earthly chance

In Virtue Los Angeles, California

Once, metal had boundaries. Then, there was IN VIRTUE. In Virtue is a progressive metal band that is TRULY progressive. Not just "prog", not just a technically advanced or stylized band but a progressive band in the purest form of the word: ever-evolving, boundless and vast as the stars. No sound escapes the gravity of the massive supernova that is In Virtue. ... more
