SLAUGHTER TO PREVAIL – Agony Lyrics

Agony by SLAUGHTER TO PREVAIL


I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool
For your love, for your f------ dream

Muzafaka!

I want to know if you’ve touched the centre of your own sorrow
If you’ve been opened by life’s betrayals
Or have become shriveled and closed from fear
Of further pain, I want to know if you can sit with pain
Mine or your own without moving to hide it or fade it or fix it
Can you be with joy mine or your own?
And let the ecstasy fill you and toes without cautioning us
To remember the limitations of being human

And each of us will have to go through the agony
And each of us will have to go through the agony

It doesn’t matter if the story you are telling me is true
I want to know if you can disappoint another
If you can bear the accusation of betrayal
And not betray your own soul, man

I wanna know what you ache for
I want to know what you live for
And if you will risk looking like a fool
For your love, for your f------ dream
For the adventure of being alive

And each of us will have to go through the agony
And each of us will have to go through the agony
Looking like a fool for your love, for your f------ dream
And each of us will have to go through the agony
And each of us will have to go through the agony

It doesn’t interest me who you know or how you came to be here
I want to know if you will stand
In the centre of the fire with me
And not shrink back

I wanna know what you ache for, ache for
I wanna know if you touch the dark
I want to know if you will stand with me
In the centre of the fire
And not shrink back

Each of us will go through the agony
Each of us will to go through the pain, through the f------ agony
Each of us will to go through the pain, through the f------ agony

Hell in us!
