Hollow Crown Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level 록스타
1. Early Grave (3:33)
I've been out for so long, days slipped by again
And I can't sleep since I stopped caring
I'll stay out until my lungs bleed
And I can't tell daylight from streetlights anymore
As he cast his shadow

I've seen this road a thousand times and I can't look back
I've seen this road a thousand times and I can't, I'm not looking back

This is so unfamiliar; death is no man's friend
Yet I'll stay here until I hear him roar

Death is screaming my name but I refuse to listen to him

I can't sit here forever
Watch me rise again
Watch me rise back up
Forever would be just be so easy to fall into
But still I'll stay out until my lungs bleed
Forever is the easy option but I won't take it

The choices I've made will lead me to an early fucking grave
2. Dethroned (3:07)
Another cold dark night, left alone
Your arrogance will lead to the death of you
I'll be the one to pull your head back down
Remove your hollow Crown
So far from the truth you hide away
I'll be the one to pull your head back down
Remove your hollow crown
I'll die happy knowing that I will never be anything like you
What gives you the right to silence me?
All my life I've wanted just to fell like this
You came, you conquered you gave it away
And how does it feel staring down on your idol's grave
The one you once looked up to has fallen into dust
The one you once looked up to has fallen away
What's left for you in this fickle world?
Remove your crown
3. Numbers Count for Nothing (3:50)
Every other question youll never find the answer to
They can hear us but we will never see them

Do you feel safe?
Do you even understand me?
Do you even understand me?

We make no difference when numbers count for nothing
We make no difference if choices have been made
When your path has already been walked
When your hourglass is fooling you

What can you rely on?
Time is our only friend, now

If my life was to end today, It wouldnt change the world in any way

This sudden realisation is tearing me apart
This life is so perfect
What can be said of the end?
Who will stand the final test of time?

This life is so perfect
What can be said of the end
Will we be resurrected?
Who will stand the final test?
4. Follow the Water (3:41)
Can I blame it on you?
I just can't win

Two years spent wondering through the loneliest of minds
Can't seem to find a good excuse this time, for me and for this to fall apart
Shall I blame it on myself, or this routine that I've been stuck in?

I've lost count of how many times I've tried to get out of this routine
But it's holding so tight

I just can't handle another day of this
I just can't win

Get me out alive

Oh God, I mean it
These are violent days for you and me
I just can't handle another day of this routine

Two years spent wondering through the loneliest of minds
I've found my excuse this time
Your words are wearing me down
A constant frown upon my back

Follow the water
Drain the lake and bring it back to me
5. In Elegance (4:17)
Take your time to find me,
I can't promise where i'll be,
These nights I feel so restless,
Tonight I feel useless.

Take your time to find me,
I can't promise where i'll be,
These nights I feel so restless,
Tonight i'm useless!

Blaming myself for every wrong move I should've thought this through,
Before I pulled you down with me,
Motionless I lay,
When your words could save me from this situation.

I've been lying here for what it seems like days,
And it was my mistake from the start.

Take your time to find me,
I can't promise where i'll be,
It was my mistake from the start.

Take your time to find me,
I can't promise where i'll be,
It was my mistake from the start.

Motionless I lay with no words to save me.
Staring blankly into concerned eyes.
I needed the right words to become commendable.
I needed the right words but I just can't find them, I just can't find them.
OH!

I'll spend years making you believe I was just a bad dream, just a bad dream.

And it was my mistake from the start.
I've been lying here for what seems like days.

Take your time to find me,
I can't promise where i'll be.
It was my mistake from the start.

Take your time to find me,
I can't promise where i'll be.
It was my mistake from the start.

I'm determined to find a way out.
To disconnect myself from you again.
How can I? How shall I? My one chance, all to you.
How can I feel like I shattered my...oh...tonight?

I'll spend years making you believe that I was only a bad dream.

I'm determined to find a way out.
To disconnect myself from you again.
How can I? How shall I? My one chance, all to you.
How can I feel like I shattered my, one chance tonight?
6. We're All Alone (3:01)
I am your hero
Still I sleep alone at night
In years you'll thank me
For getting everything right
I am the sun
Still I sit alone in a red sky
Keeping my eyes on you
Were all alone

In time you'll find that
Were all on our own (all on our own)
Were all on our own , chasing nothing
My dreams have fallen , I'm wearing thin
I need something to fill this void I'm constantly in
And I can't do this

I am your hero
I just don't care tonight
In years you'll forget me
I got everything right
I am the sun
I didn't rise today
I left you in darkness

And I just don't care anymore about you
You can sit and suffer alone without me

I am your hero
Save your "thank you"'s

In times to come ill rise above this
But for now I can't ill just sit here
My dreams have fallen once again
My dreams have fallen once again

I need something to fill this void I'm in
7. Borrowed Time (2:31)
I'm looking back on a time when I could say I actually thought I cared about you
But after everything I've been put though
I realise that I've been living with false hope
It's drowning out my senses
It's drowning out my thoughts
This has got oh so confusing
And I've only got myself to blame
I can't believe...oh what was I thinking
I've only got my self to blame
You mean nothing to me
And you never fucking did
I can't stand to listen to your excuses anymore
I can only pray that you feel so alone
A guilty conscience hangs over your head
I can't believe...oh what was I thinking
I've only got myself to blame
But maybe I'm the only one to blame in all of this
I've got nothing to depend on anymore
8. Every Last Breath (3:29)
After all is said and done
I'm left with reflections of your eyes haunting my mind
So dead inside, what good came out of this?
I was the one that tore you down
I'm down yet oh so guilty
Every last breath I have is yours to keep
This constant cloud is watching over me
I wish I had the time to make you see this through
We've been here too many times
I've felt like this too many times
Oh god, I am this I'm dead inside, looking out for you
And your final words I was the one that tore you down
9. One of These Days (2:34)
I admire your perseverance!

Everytime my back is turned your falling closer into my world,
I've told you so many times you need to back down, need to back down.

I told you you need to walk away.
All the countless efforts I have made.
One day I'll get you back, I swear I'll get you back.

Will this ever end or will time stand still forever?
Will this ever end or will time stand still forever?

Everytime my back is turned you're falling closer to my world.
How can you sleep when you know what you're doing to me?

Everytime my back is turned you're falling closer to my world.
How can you sleep when you know what you're doing to me?

I told you you need to walk away
Fuck all the efforts that I have made.
I've got you right where I want you.

After all the years I've known you when did you decide to fuck this up?
After all the years I've known you when did you decide to try and fuck this up?

I still admire your perseverance!

How did you think you'd get away with this?!

And it's time to teach you a lesson that you're never gonna fucking forget!
You are never gonna forget, not any time soon!
You're never gonna forget me!
Brargh!
10. Dead March (3:47)
I admire your perseverance!

Everytime my back is turned your falling closer into my world,
I've told you so many times you need to back down, need to back down.

I told you you need to walk away.
All the countless efforts I have made.
One day I'll get you back, I swear I'll get you back.

Will this ever end or will time stand still forever?
Will this ever end or will time stand still forever?

Everytime my back is turned you're falling closer to my world.
How can you sleep when you know what you're doing to me?

Everytime my back is turned you're falling closer to my world.
How can you sleep when you know what you're doing to me?

I told you you need to walk away
Fuck all the efforts that I have made.
I've got you right where I want you.

After all the years I've known you when did you decide to fuck this up?
After all the years I've known you when did you decide to try and fuck this up?

I still admire your perseverance!

How did you think you'd get away with this?!

And it's time to teach you a lesson that you're never gonna fucking forget!
You are never gonna forget, not any time soon!
You're never gonna forget me!
Brargh!
11. Left with a Last Minute (2:58)
It feels like someone is following my every footstep around every corner,
And there are times when I know I've felt someone else with me.

I swear I've felt your breath down the back of my neck once before.
I swear I've felt your breath down the back of my neck once before.

I'm never giving up till I find you.
I'll never rest until I find you.

I refuse to rest and I refuse to sleep until I have you in my sights.
It's gone too far.
A few steps behind.
Where are you now?

What is the meaning, why are you doing this to me?
What is the meaning, why are you doing this to me?

How can you do this?
I'll never sleep until I find you.

I swear I've felt your presence once before,
Or has my paranoia gone far too far?

I can't close my eyes without thinking that I'm losing control!
I can't close my eyes without thinking that I'm losing control!

I swear I've felt your breath down the back of my neck once before.
I swear I've felt your breath down the back of my neck once before.

I'm never giving up till I find you.
I'll never rest until I find you.
I'll never rest and I'll never sleep till I get my hands around your neck.
It's gone too far. A few steps behind. I'm coming for you now.

All I seem to hear in my head is your voice on repeat,
I close my eyes and I still fucking see you.
All I seem to hear in my head is your voice on repeat,
I close my eyes and I still fucking see you there!
12. Hollow Crown (4:25)
There...*
There must be an easier way to release these feelings.

So...so far from home,
In need of your voice to hold my head together.
So...so far from home,
In need of your voice to lift my lonely state of mind.

You...
You can but wait for me to return,
For me to show you how I felt.
These months have just blurred,
And the days just fly by.
These times I needed to feel you right by my side.

So...so far from home,
In need of your voice to hold my head together.
So...so far from home,
In need of your voice to lift my lonely state of mind.

Oh there must be an easier way!
Oh there must be an easier way!
Oh there must be an easier way!
To release these feelings!

As the sea breeze hits my lungs,
It takes me back to where I belong!"
