lyrics

Uprooted

I dreamt of a tree dying.
It was uprooted and murdered by a force I cannot comprehend
The tree splintered and cracked like a chicken bone in a wolverines maw
Its roots like raven claws frantically slashed at the sky suffocating for a foundation
It screamed like an infant

I open my eyes

To dream of the earth dying is nothing new
To watch in awe of its beauty is something I don’t do
To hold a dead bird in my hand and demand it sing
To hold a gift in my hand and not feel a thing

So as I reflect on this dream of horrific beauty
I offer nothing profound in my reaction

Crush the sun into my bones
It is well-known I don’t bleed

Curse me dead and rape my home
And I will show you how I’ve grown

I was affected
But, emotion should never be expected
Allow me to process the world as best I can
I am a common man that is sick of panicking, sick of managing, sick of damaging, sick of bandaging

Crush the sun into my bones
Let the mountains watch me die

Curse me dead and rape my home
I will never fucking comply

With goosebumps on my neck
And a rage in my breath
I stomp the earth with bare feet and scream, “I am incomplete!”

Ripe with indifference
Void of preference

I trudge forward
Aimless soul
I trudge forward
Toward fulfillment

I dreamt of the tree again and it never died
It fought with all its might against the force I can’t describe

It did more than just survive the force

It had its way with its predator
Viciousness the only resort

What I misperceived as a deathscream
Was a warcry

I open my eyes, now complete

Without Mercy Vancouver

What’s in a name? Everything. And Vancouver-based Without Mercy certainly stays true to its name. Ruthless and menacing, these Canadian metal titans have cultivated a fusion of death and thrash, a sound that shows off the band’s respect for, and dedication to both genres. ... more
