The Grudge Lyrics

Wear the grudge like a crown of negativity.
Calculate what we will or will not tolerate.
Desperate to control all and everything.
Unable to forgive your scarlet lettermen.

Clutch it like a cornerstone. Otherwise it all
comes down.
Justify denials and grip 'em to the lonesome end.
Clutch it like a cornerstone. Otherwise it all
comes down.
Terrified of being wrong. Ultimatum prison cell.

Saturn ascends, choose one or ten. Hang on or
be humbled again. Humbled again.

Clutch it like a cornerstone. Otherwise it all
comes down.
Justify denials and grip 'em to the lonesome end.
Saturn ascends, comes round again.
Saturn ascends, the one, the ten. Ignorant to
the damage done.

Wear the grudge like a crown of negativity.
Calculate what we will or will not tolerate.
Desperate to control all and everything.
Unable to forgive your scarlet lettermen.

Wear your grudge like a crown. Desperate to
control.
Unable to forgive. And we're sinking deeper.

Defining, confining, controlling, and sinking
deeper.
Conrolling, defining, and sinking deeper.

Saturn comes back around to show you
everything
Let's you choose what you will not see and then
Drags you down like a stone or lifts you up again
Spits you out like a child, light and innocent.

Saturn comes back around. Lifts you up like a
child or
Drags you down like a stone
To consume you till you choose to let this go.

Give away the stone. Let the oceans take and
Transmutate this cold and fated anchor.
Give away the stone. Let the waters kiss and
Transmutate these leaden grudges into gold.
Let go.

This song deals with the first step of enlightenment. All unenlightened humans harbor a grudge towards life for bringing about our inevitable death. We wear this grudge like a crown, defining us, and making us miserable as we relentlessly try to define and control everything in life. So let go.

This song is about letting go of grudges because grudges are negative and ruin a person. The stone is the grudge.

far from being random this song is concerning itself with the psychological burden of childhood trauma and how carrying around such things will only drag one deeper into the Borderline.
