Honor Is Dead Lyrics

Submitted by level 록스타
1. Confession (3:53)
I call it a phase, I call it a phase
But bottoms of bottles are killing the pain
I call it a phase, I call it a phase
When no one’s looking, I take in all I can
I kiss the bottle until I can’t stand
And wake up grieving, and by noon I won’t care
I’ll count the minutes til’ I’ll start again
What have I become?
Have I come undone?

What fills the hollow?
Distills the venom I need
So hard to swallow
The fact I need to be free
One turns to twenty, and now I’m interesting
I’m in control, I’m not one for restraint
My compass spinning, hell bent on making mistakes
You cannot hurt when you cannot feel a thing
The past has taught me I won’t remember a thing
I’ll trade a night cap for some apathy
And wake up grieving, and by noon I won’t care
I count the minutes til’ I start again
2. Censorship (3:54)
What will it take?
Give a man more than due, he’ll laud you all his day
But give him less than he mused, oh god, you’re idol waste
What will finally earn your grace? Are you not entertained?
When your expectations ride on the backs of promised lies
Showing your worth is almost a curse that leaves you high and dry
What of ends long pursued, scaled, and weighed for praise?
Heart regressed to follow suit, the art has lost its way
What will finally suit the taste? Are you not entertained?
Tell me what’s the point of this? I’m lost in censorship
Tell me what’s the point of this? I am lost
What will it take? Are you not entertained?
3. Honor Is Dead (4:01)
Life and death are shaking hands with no regard for my futile plans
I’ve licked the wounds and tasted red, nothing can mend me now that honor’s dead
With life and death in every breath, I hope I chose the words that sell us best
I’ve made my bed in the viper’s den, nothing can save me now that honor’s dead
I can’t rely on this anymore
I watched them weave the noose around me, I watched them raise the gallows high
Never saw the fools that hung before me
Never saw a warning sign
My face is turning blue
From up here it’s the best view
My neck is breaking from my own weight, and I’m supposed to say thank you
4. Lines in the Sand (3:51)
Some men are born to reap the harvest
Some men are born to sow the seed
The lines between them are all drawn in
The lie between them is belief

If only we had eyes to see
The lines blurring

Fall in line if you're willing
Defend these shores to the bitter end
Everyone's got a reason
To name the victims and the villains
But who drew lines into the sand?

Does anyone know why we're fighting?
Does anyone know the other side?
The lines between us are all drawn by
The lies that we choose to believe

If only we had eyes to see
The lines blurring

Fall in line if you're willing
Defend these shores to the bitter end
Everyone's got a reason
To name the victims and the villains
But who drew lines into the sand?

Does anyone know the other side?

To build a wall
Between us all
It's our downfall
It's our downfall

Fall in line if you're willing
Defend these shores to the bitter end
Everyone's got a reason
To name the victims and the villains

Fall in line if you're willing
Defend these shores to the bitter end
Everyone's got a reason
To name the victims and the villains
But who drew lines into the sand?
But who drew lines into the sand?
5. World on Fire (3:17)
The world has lost its mind
These are the liars leading legions of the blind
And no one seems to see the cliff in sight
Are we too far gone to save our lives?
Our house on sand is sinking
How are we surprised?
Senseless is now a virtue to live by
Fools we are
Drawing from a well run dry
Fools we are
Defending truths we know are lies
Is there more than just performance in their show?
Either back in the hand you hold or learn to fold
Are we too far gone to change our minds?
Self destruction in the name of progress
Oh, I see the end, I see it
Where do we go from here?
Because faith is running thin
Just look around the world is on fire
6. Compass (3:37)
My sails are torn and I’m lost at sea
The stars refuse to guide me
The ocean’s churning and I’m burning to see
What horrors await me
Hold my breath
Waiting, watching for a break in the storm
For a course worth a chance
All I am is whipping in the wind
For too long I’ve let it take me where it will
I see the waves building out of my view
I see the depths past the blackness
There’s no surprises left to throw at me
What’s another storm to sail?
What’s the difference?
When the sea has taken all from me
What’s the difference?
I’m indifferent
7. Stones Thrown (3:17)
All the headlines read of tragedies
Force fed to fuel the hate
All the headlines read of tragedies
Stones thrown to separate
Wake up, wake up
A stone thrown to separate
Wake up
All talk is cheap
When from the screen
But we believe it all
If the mainstream’s reach is what you preach
Whose pockets are you filling?
If the mainstream’s reach is what you preach
Whose pockets are you filling?
Further and further they divide us and conquer
Wake up and stand up, we’re in this together
8. Cascade (3:26)
Our time is borrowed and forced
We atrophy in your ascension for more
The writing on the wall is fading
Cascading down and blacking out our light
We atrophy in your ascension for more
The words are weighed to chapters closing
The pages kept the ones who lost their stride
I see you’ve written out the lines upon the course you’d have us ride
But what if we refuse to sign?
I won’t follow you down
You fan the flames to torch the future
While I watch you burn it to the ground
You fan the flames to torch the future
I think I found the answer to the question
Maybe moving on is our salvation
It’s pulling teeth to start again
Lines still remain
Suspend your sentence
An open-ended story you would bind
This ink we bleed is drawn from knowing
You’d lose the plot in trying to survive
Is this a self-fulfilling prophecy?
Is this your self-fulfilling prophecy?
9. Silhouette (3:04)
You’ve got a way of finding peace in being incomplete
A silhouette you exhibit, so you’ll never have to claim defeat
Somehow, someway, someone found a reason to betray
Maybe I can be your shelter, maybe I can be safety
But this silhouette you exhibit will never let you be complete
Somehow, someway, someone chose to throw this love…
Away from this
You can find me waiting
When you’re ready
Away from this
Lay your torment down
I am with you now
Somehow, someway we’ll find a way to love again
Lay your torment down
It’s OK, I’m with you now, I’m with you now
10. Bloodletter (3:42)
Blood letter
On a parchment so clean
But day by day the stainless
Fades from white to glory
Blood letter
Penned with pleading hands
A dialect of neglectedness
I’ll never understand
She’s writing red calligraphy
On the razors edge between
Hope and loss and out of ink
Blood letter
Doesn’t wear it on her sleeve
But knows the brush and depth to cut
To make the canvas bleed
Blood letter
Emblazoned on her skin
A gallery of tempt and pain
For which there is no end
She’s writing red calligraphy
On the razors edge between
Hope and loss and out of ink
A badge of honor
Or a wound that’s festering
I want to understand
Why won’t she let me in?
A cry for help is now bleeding out
I should have known
That it wasn’t a show
She’s writing red calligraphy
On the razors edge between
Hope and loss and out of ink
A badge of honor
Or a wound that’s festering
I want to understand
Why won’t she let me in?
A cry for help is now bleeding out
11. 130 (2:33)
Explosions shake the city
I thought it was part of the show
A craven is screaming prayers
In a tongue that I don’t know
Paris lights are winking out
I can hear the city scream
While the faithful are rejoicing
In the sound of tragedy
Find me one reason worth this hate
One reason worth this endless violence
Find me more one reason worth this hate
Because I have 130 reasons to change
This stage should be a temple
Where anyone can sing
Yet we are one divided
Waging war over beliefs
Paris lights are winking out
I can hear the city scream
While the faithful are rejoicing
In the sound of tragedy
Find me one reason worth this hate
One reason worth this endless violence
Find me more one reason worth this hate
Because I have 130 reasons to change
Parents’ cries are ringing out
While their sons and daughters bleed
And the faithful are rejoicing
In the sound of tragedy
