Phinehas – Hell Below Lyrics

[Intro] I sowed the salt but the bitter weeds still grow
I fear a heaven above for the hell below

[Verse 1] I wept when guilt by association started in irony
Avoiding its eyes bowing three times
I watched as hopes expire under the weight of standards I create and betray
One day they sunk hungry fangs into the hand that feeds
A hand that bleeds
In trying to stifle their voices
I bowed their limbs, they bowed my knees

[Chorus] Struck to silence by the gavel
Make them bleed for playing God
I sowed the salt but the bitter weeds still grow
I fear a heaven above for the hell below
Hell below

[Verse 2] Lost in the waves of a sea of fire
One million portraits to fan the flame
Burned in effigy:
A fitting end to a cult of personality

[Chorus] Struck to silence by the gavel
Make them bleed for playing God
I sowed the salt but the bitter weeds still grow
I fear a heaven above for the hell below
Hell below

[Breakdown / Bridge] Called to the judgement seat
Eye for an eye, watch a man playing God bleed
Eye for an eye, watch a man playing God bleed
Eye for an eye, watch a man playing God bleed

[Chorus] Struck to silence by the gavel
Make them bleed for playing God
I sowed the salt but the bitter weeds still grow
I fear a heaven above more than the hell below
Hell below

[Ending] Turn to the last page
To see just how this ends
I fear a heaven above for the hell below
I fear a heaven above for the hell below (the sea of fire)
I fear a heaven above for the hell
