lyrics

I’m not the shock and awe campaign
To find which hearts and minds remain
That can be sold a fast food chain,
For the price of bread and novocaine.
Another peasant family cursed,
With their well-being a reverse
Chain of events that lead to this,
Circumstances that I can't predict.

I’d walk all night through smoke and rain
Before I’d let some sad refrain,
Show it’s facade to me again,
And turn into my brightest flame,
Just when you think the thing is slain,
It rears its ugly head again,
Didn’t know the source of all that pain,
Couldn't turn into my brightest flame...

Tell me who died and made you pay,
For the way you treat those that you disdain,
Who took your father's name in vain,
As you made haste a sad display,
Of what was once thought so perverse,
No final prayers, no need of nurse,
Did not think it would come to this,
The truth we know it contradicts

Oh no, it’s the weight of the world upon my sleeve
Oh no, I didn’t think they would catch the melody
For sure, Backtracking my steps for all to see
Oh no, Nothing according to any foreseeable need

Oh but like a coin at the bottom of a wishing well
Or all the good intentions that can pave the road to hell
Oh but like a heart made out of asterisks,
Or the deviations that can play your mind a trick

Oh no, but like a coin at the bottom of a wishing well,
Or all the good intentions that pave the road to hell...
