Landmines

lyrics

I know why I’m here now
See the signs
Let my own fate find me
Stars aligned
To blink is to miss our chance at the world
Mankind an abyss, into which we might fall
And so on and on, on and on we toil
Our fantasies collide, leading us to spoil
All our plans are foiled
Searching for the promised land
But my feet stuck in the sand
No surrender, can’t withdraw
Relief appears upon my sword
Should I fall upon my sword?
And I can’t control the weather, so let it rain on me now
All these years I’ve held together, are starting to bring me down
As we rise up, I must fall
Time and again I must fight for the cause
Lines stretch and they tear
Will I be overthrown?
And I can’t control the weather, so let it rain on me now
All these years I’ve held together, are starting to bring me down
As we rise up, I must fall
The fickle symphony is calling out again, I crow
This muted melody is falling on deaf ears now
Landmines reside under the path that I’m consigned
Will I come undone?
Thorn vines entwined around the neck to foil my cries
Silent in this war
And I’ll be sober now, there’s no four leaf clover
Can’t see through windows made of gold
So un-blind
The fickle symphony is calling out again, I crow
This muted melody, the call for clemency’s vetoed
The writings on the wall, it’s time for me to fall, let go
The fable we were fed, the pathway only led, to finding this fool’s gold
Don’t know why I’m here now
See false signs
Fate will never find me
Stars maligned
I don’t know why
