- LyricsKeep out the intruders! Put the drawbridge up!
The enemy ransacked what we had just rebuilt!
Now the garden lies in serene symmetry
And severe color theory.
Roots slowly poisoining
- LyricsSo, lowly criminal,
please tell me, how do you plead?
Now, honorable judges, ladies, gentlemen of the jury, please allow me to present my case...
Ha! What case can you possibly present
to rip a man from his family, faith, and friends? Defense?
- LyricsConfess to your sins
Immorality's my witness
The search for redemption
A never-ending trial - your victim
The battlefield has transformed
Pull me out and plug me in
Light the brain
Start me up
Automatic we're bound
