Lyrics

How Far We Fall

Heeding what the prodigal son would say
I take what I want
and I lay beyond what you're worth
Not a man, but a God that's in the palace of satisfaction
Speaking out from the side of my mouth when I let go
so let go
I'd rather die than be barely alive
You're gonna die livin' nine to five

Feed the innocent to the fire
one day they'll learn
in this game where pawns all burn
take the birthright of my kin
standing on the backs of mortals
that'll make him proud

He returns
He is silent, downcast, hollow
Not the path I sought to follow
How far we fall (Who are you?)

Won't you take it away
This pride that remains
I'll tell you everything
this bridge isn't built to burn
Every day, these questions evaded tell you everything
the lessons you've yet to learn

Putting blade to back if I want to (Et tu, brute?)
When I see that you do not what you say
What of your gold? (I let it go)
What of your lies (I let it die)
Your dreams did not survive

Won't you take it away
This pride that remains
I'll tell you everything
this bridge isn't built to burn
Every day, these questions evaded tell you everything
the lessons you've yet to learn

Heeding what the Prodigal Son would say
I've run, I've lost
I've lived to pay the cost
and my past shows me the madness in the future of your thoughts
and now I see, the only remedy,
turning doubt into belief
to set my brother free
His blood is the key

He is smiling, high and mighty
hand of iron I cast to thee
How far we fall
who are you?
Et, tu brute?
You are traitor
You are monster
I condemn thee
Fray your ties

Hell awaits you
Avarice
Ignorance
