lyrics

Take all my pride,
You can take it away,
I will never succumb to your ways of deceit,
Your days are numbered,
Your life is a waste,
You'll regret the decisions you shouldn't have made.

You think you have us all deceived?
Well that's funny, cause you're as mistaken as the face you were given,
But you know what, it doesn't matter,
Cause soon they'll all know you're a fake.

Heartless, your heartless flesh that devours,
All the wealth that you see, you take,
These streets are crowded with cowards disguised as men,
Victims of the human condition, they want the world to themselves,
Without the decency to justify their evil deeds.

Is this your way of repaying the trust that has been,
Bestowed by the masses,
You walk with a smile on your face,
To hide all the lies,
Right under your dying skin,
Is this the vow you've made?
We all long to see the light someday.

You tell the world that you stand tall,
But that is only because you're standing on the shoulders,
Of so many others as you,
Weigh them down.

Empty lies are all that you can spare,
Your promises are hollow.

A country left to yourself to tame,
But nothing good has come to change,
What justifies all the things you have done,
Promises all left undone.

You can't turn this back,
There's no return,
The trophies you have,
You haven't earned.

Mistrust is your trade,
Deceit is your puppet.

Is this your way of repaying the trust that has been,
Bestilled by the masses,
You walk with a smile on your face,
To hide all the lies,
Right under your dying skin,
Is this the vow you've made?
We all long to see the light someday.

You have deceived the naive and weak,
Taken advantage of all that they seek,
Promising all that they dream,
All of the wealth in the world,
Let the future decide,
Decide what becomes of your might.
