Here come the weakest days Placed before a heart, he hides Resolve to follow me I’ll lead you into light, he lied Some seek to shelter in The fear that makes us choose a side It’s just a game to him While ladders and the snakes, we ride So all hail, the cartesian diver That takes us down Wild words and hands raised Are hard lives Bad faith and faint praise Make long knives Go home and wait for me Nothing will remain this day No need for charity Something wicked comes our way
Heavy Irony 04:16
Maybe it’s all wrong But I release you now You were not the one They say you learn somehow I just can’t believe You called me by my name True, you wanted me For someone else to blame I will always Be your friend And you’ll know this At the end Moving in the wind You wear the motion well Kneeling at your feet You breathe and break the spell I’ll remember you If mercy will allow You were not the one They say you learn somehow
Divider 03:29
They chose to stand before it A cross upon their arm Gentle in the murderhouse The souls they kept from harm To hold a life together Under candlelight A different kind of bravery For the few that would not fight So breathe Breathe the air again Save yourself this time To see your face again Once again And when the blood was over The hate would follow them Flowing through the neighborhoods That won’t be home again For every word unspoken And silently condemned A promise left unbroken We will remember them
You found a ragged star And looked beyond the light Stepped between the doubt and dare When it took all of you And everything you knew To find the home inside despair Feigned like love All ghost and hand They walk away in fear Lost again But lingering A bright rain at Tangier A moment half undone You walked a rare divide It’s not a road that you forget And when we all succumb We’ll find another name For the treasure and the debt
Here they come now The weakest days Placed before you A heart he hides He hides
