lyrics

The drive, in short, is one for reason,
Not to cross or draw the line.
When three is one and less is treason,
We cross our wings and then take flight.

Cryptic woes and cold cut phrases
Trip the dormant fields of lies.
When innocence has all but faded,
The king on top’s in fast decline.

So I try to lift the guise in place,
But know I can’t be any stronger
Than all the love already raised
The kind of love I hope to follow.
Don’t despise. Just walk away.
These are men all afraid of the truth
They’re the ones who must choose.

There’s no need for Compensation
When all is gone that floats inside.
I don’t mean for conversation
When all my faith in works has died.

When tempered woes change the paces
And the lost boys run to hide,
The three and ones go trade their spaces
And leave the rest of us true lies.

So I try to lift the guise in place,
But know I can’t be any stronger
Than all the love already raised
The kind of love I hope to follow.
Don’t despise. Just walk away.
These are men all afraid of the truth
They’re the ones who must choose.

[Bridge]

So I try to lift the guise in place,
But know I can’t be any stronger
Than all the love already raised
The kind of love I hope to follow.
Don’t despise. Just walk away.
These are men all afraid of the truth
They’re the ones who must choose.
