lyrics

My countryman’s murder will soon be your grave
As you fought us together I have every faith
That together you will die for the sins of your weight
And the god that I love will look upon evil

Evil is old bread
Eat it to stay alive
But not to be well fed
Evil is old bread

In sickness and horror we fled to the north
We fled to the mountains where our fathers walked
They knew that this world did not owe them their thoughts
And that both doors are open to call upon evil

Evil is old bread
Eat it to stay alive
But not to be well fed
Evil is old bread

To what degree now I know of so far
Always behind the sun we are
And behind the sun is a dog’s behind
That begs to turn the other cheek

Evil is old bread
Eat it to stay alive
But not to be well fed
Evil is old bread
