If I was to break another bone Treason could not keep me coming home A toast to all that matters I know where to go when it gets dark These streets just keep me going And yeah, maybe I'd be lost without you A life to keep on showing my eulogy Heresy leads me to believe anything to be of grief I know where to go when it gets dark Three cheers for growing up
If it's a down, it ain't the end If you're high tonight, you're gonna fall tomorrow To follow through, you must pretend To be on top, you've got to let loose of your sorrow I know you only meant well And it doesn't rain tonight And I miss you I've said it a thousand times and I will say it again A lifetime of composition, an oath to forget Home is where you suffer, home is where you bend This is where I'll end up alone On my own Never had my priorities straight
A lesser god would be appalled by your behaviour But me, I won't be giving in You've been to hell and back to stand by your convictions Once back, they tell you that they're sin A craze I cannot grasp Do you believe in living? I lost mine long ago And now I'm finally breathing Now there's a story told A bitter deity can fuck with all your senses But someone told you they would not Can you believe we're nothing short of magic?
I made the choice to be more than I really am One last time I give in to these bearing hands I've done nothing so I guess I could just forget What once was and what I've made out of myself, again and again You made me a living target You've done so much for me On and on, until I couldn't breathe We leave our homes to come back stronger And no one knows if they can take it any longer Wild at heart, soft at mind And every sinner has a past And every soul is put to rest We're all living targets and we don't know what to believe Let me breathe
Supremacy 04:06
Come be my guest, be second best Some thoughts just never crossed my mind With all my weight, I contemplate Some souls just always stay behind I know that you're watching me And I can't deny the need to be in bloom If you don't know what you want, you can't find your way out You will know what comes around Once you settle for direction, all you need is to let go You can't trust your own eyes when they're closed I'm afraid you'll never know To the west where we burned the rotten skin A trip I sometimes hope I'll never make again To the east where our dreams were still alive Our very last chance to survive, to finally strive Say, can you see the only point in harmony?
Loose lips, I got me some and here we go again It ain't gonna be how it used to be Up front until down low, we've seen some better days Still you sing along until your lungs collapse You got me worried Once you've been me A cold dependency Same antics as before but another verse to go I might have lost it long ago I've lost my voice some time ago I can't even recall the day And since, my luck went away
