The Trial

Agonist

Band/Artist: Agonist

Album: Five

He called me to pay my debts
The crack in his voice was a sign of regret
A deal he proposed of mutual benefit
But the knot in my gut told me to stand back

How could you presume the remedy for the unknown?
Liquefied asphyxiation
Desperate times call for desperate measures

Take the drugs to numb the senses
Sweet euphoria...
When the last drop has fallen
Inject the deadliest poison

Falling away from insanity
Sweet euphoria...
How could the dawn wait a moment?
The nights are the shortest

The court has been summoned
Bring in the accused
"I plead the fifth", he yelled
When asked to take the stand
Your are certified fraud, one of the best
But it's not your life on trial
It's the chance to make amends

Pour that man another
Cause he might let you bleed
If you're nice
Salvation always a price

Take the drugs to numb the senses
Sweet euphoria...
When the last drop has fallen
Inject the deadliest poison

Falling away from insanity
Sweet euphoria...
How could the dawn wait a moment?
The nights are the shortest
