in order to survive in this world
you must put pride and pain on the backburner.
you must force off traditions and vanquish your selfishness.
with a thousand symphonies at your back, orchestrate the end
force off traditions
dismiss your selfishness
orchestrate the end
and vanquish your selfishness
so hold on just a little bit longer,
“just be strong” but i wish i was stronger.
i can’t believe this heart’s still beating
when it’s racing to explode.
and let go to the ones that you hold close,
or hold on as you feel them let you go.
i can’t decide which one is worse or what hurts the most.
they’ve the mercy of a shark
wildly biting in the dark
father shed the blood of a son
the real pain has just begun
i think i’m ready to let go now of the weight that has held me down.
but i’m not sure how…
anger bound you to an early grave
crucify your offerings
in the words of saints and allies
“suffer, surrender, give up”.
i said, i said, i said let go!
and put your burdens aside
speak now and make the world divide
not even god can break you.
hail the face of a ghost, you aren’t unspoken
no more burden, pride or pain.
only you can halt this suffering.
i think i’m ready to let go now of the weight that has held me down,
but i don’t know how…
we are the sons of a broken world – d*mnation for all the boys and girls
mistakes with wings, we’re nothing short of beautiful.
