Trivium And Sadness Will Sear

Shepherd is chased by the wolves

Wolves who lived by intolerance and hate

For what they couldn’t understand

Blinded and vicious are the beasts

Beating and ripping at a beautiful human

Who did nothing more than be himself

Tied to the fence as they break you

And sadness will sear

Cold is the wind that will freeze you

And sadness will sear

Scarecrow is left crucified, left freezing, bleeding

Tied, and wondering why. The wolves just couldn’t understand

It’s the preachers, and the teachers,

Governments closed-minded creatures

Try to teach us to hate that which is different

Tied to the fences as they break you

And sadness will sear

Cold is the wind that will freeze you

And sadness will sear

It’s 12:53 AM

October 12th when the scarecrow died

A victim of society’s cruelty

It’s 12:53 AM

October 12th when the shepherd died

The candles light will alight your departure

[Solo: Matt]

Tied to the fences as they break you

And sadness will sear

Cold is the wind that will freeze you

And sadness will sear
