Great Faith in Fools Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level chelsea485
1. The Inevitable (1:09)
When the world turns its back on you, you turn your back on the fucking world!!!!
2. Take This to Heart (3:01)
I don't want want your sympathy for this life
that's been given to me. You only showed
me how to live with the one's that leave.

And with my pride is all that you left me.
I will survive because I am not you.

Time after time, just know that I was the one who stood by you and in the end, remember you were the one who fucking left me.

So once again I'll be the one here with my heart in my hand. I know I said that I would forget but you're forever in the back of my head.

Is this all we'll ever know? I would give anything.
Because I can't face this on my own.
These broken hands made broken things. Lost and alone.

You buried me with what you couldn't be.
Am I a symbol of all the things you never wanted to see?
You took life for granted.
I hope you choke on every promise you made.

All your words lack of their meaning, yet you never thought you'd lose it all.
You claimed you changed with the seasons, but you never made it past the fall.

Is this all we'll ever know? I would give anything.
Because I can't face this on my own.
These broken hands made broken things.
Lost and alone.

So mark my grave unknown!

It's said to live life with a heart of gold, but a heart of stone is all I really have to show.
And if I'm not the only one in this world, then tell me why do I feel so damn alone?
3. Deliverance (3:47)
Carve me down and hollow me out. Take this world where I have been bound. If only you could see how I see you'd understand who I am.

When everyday's a fight with the mirror I blame the face staring back at me. Look through these eyes and nothing gets clearer.
The path I've made is not one I want to take.

I thought I knew these hands, I thought that I could change. The world was in my palms and I threw it away.

Take me from everything I couldn't leave.
You know I'll be here waiting.
Because I don't want to live this way if anything could save me.

All these legacies were born from picture perfect prophecies I couldn't carry. Save me from myself. How could you ever rest this all on me? I'll only break you.

Go inform the masses, they should never live by what I say. I've torn this life to pieces.
Who would ever put their trust in me .... .. .... .. now?

I AM A SAVAGE!!!!
I've created this hell and I must burn in it.
I've created this hell and I will never escape it.

Because I could never escape from....
All I've become is all I'll ever be. I'll leave this place so I can burn in peace.

I just want to be put back together.
If the good die young, then i will live forever.
I'd sell my soul to let this.....go!!!

Take me from everything I couldn't leave.
You know I'll be here waiting.
Because I don't want to live this way if anything could save me.
Take me from everything I couldn't leave.
You know I'll be here waiting.
Because I don't want to live this way if anything could save me.
4. Desolate and Disowned (3:05)
Some may never put this together, but the intended is not left to wonder. It's such a shame how you made it this way. We once were family, but strangers we've come to be and strangers we'll stay. The ties were severed the moment you said my name. So what did you gain only to lose everything?

You'll die alone, left desolate and disowned.
You'll die alone, left desolate and disowned.

So hold your tounge, so you won't be mistaken of saying something you'll end up regretting. The ice on which you stand is cracking. I'll give the push to watch it all come crashing.

Oh, there's nowhere left to go when every bridge is burned, there's nowhere you can turn. All your darkest secrets known. My friend Craig has a list and you will be exposed.

As you start to feel your pride ripped from your insides, you try to mend but only I can make it subside.

Live each day with these thoughts in your head. You can't escape the past behind you.
The choice you made will haunt you forever.

Don't bother trying to explain, because I know everything. Nothing will make this go away. It's far too late. It's best we go our separate ways.

Nothing will make this go away. It's far too late. It's best we go our separate ways.
5. For What It's Worth (3:16)
How does it feel to know that everything you want is ours? You never had it and you know you never will. You always said that this would never be worth it. For what it's worth you'll never let this go.

Oh, I can't believe I turned my back and you were right there to leech. I can't believe I turned my back and you were right there to leech.

Let them see that you're a product of a foundation built on greed.

I will make them see you stand for nothing.
This could never be. You took what's left of us.

What's it worth to walk this world unknown, believing you're the chosen one?
What's it worth to live this life alone convinced that you will be someone? You know you're worthless.

We will be everything we've ever dreamed.
We will be everything we've ever dreamed.

So keep telling yourself that everything will be fine. You just look pathetic. You're only wasting our time. No one cares about you, your story has no meaning. You buried the truth, but they won't keep believing.

I will make them see you stand for nothing.
This could never be. You took what's left of us.

We always knew that it would come to this.
Your fucking ego never made this easy.
So take a breath and let this all sink in.
You selfish fuck I hope you burn in hell.
6. Vultures (3:01)
I will destroy all that's in my way.
Believe me there will be no mercy.
So go ahead and fucking touch me.
I won't cease, you'll end up feet deep.
So go ahead and fucking touch me.

Left for dead, and far too busy biting down on the cement. Shattered grin to match the cracks that stretch across this old pavement.
You're scum.

I'll rip your worthless life right from your eyes.
I'll fucking seize everything!!

Like fucking vultures, prey upon the weak.
Like fucking vultures, like fucking vultures.
This will not end tonight, a plague sent from the sky. We'll hunt and we will feast:
an unstoppable breed. Forget your hopes and dreams. I'll slaughter everything.

We are the fear in the back of your mind.
We are the ruthless and we cannot die (We cannot die!!)
Like a disease running down through your own spine, we are the ruthless and we won't die.

This is more than a war, this is the dawning of a god damn massacre. It's time we settle this score, so from your throat to the floor, blood will pour!!! Blood will pour.

Oh! I'll raise a toast to those decayed.
And piss all over your fucking grave.
7. The Life They Promised (3:37)
Closed eyes to outside's deception. Fighting for a way to see, this is not what we envisioned. Things are never what they seem.

Will we ever find a way to end this?
Because I'm afraid that it's all a lie. We'll keep searching for the life they promised.
Your hand in mine.

Caught in a chain reaction. If we go, what will we find? Blinded by all these
distractions, how could we make it out alive?

This passion building inside me, our hollow hearts denied. We're all left starving for answers. The only thing that we know is this weight that we hold.

We won't stand, we won't stand down.
While everything that we have is just slipping away.
We won't stand, we won't stand down.
While everything that we have is just slipping away.

And with this road we take will be able to see the best in everything? It's all we need.
If we believe, we can change anything.

Will we ever find a way to end this?
(Be)cause I'm afraid that it's all a lie. We'll keep searching for the life they promised.
Your hand in mine.

No one left can save us, as locusts block the sun.
The earth shatters and tides run red....
WITH BLOOD!!!!!
8. Here's to Letting Go (4:05)
How am I supposed to sleep when I can't even find peace in my dreams? I'm never safe from my mind racing. Don't tell me that this didn't mean everything.

Your words are all I have to hold on to.
Some days I wish I could just go back to the person I thought I knew.

Because I've let go of what I need the most I always wanted to be what you had wanted from me and all I hope is you forget this. I know I've made so many mistakes, but I can't make you stay so I'll go.

Just count me out because I can't bare anymore. I'm far too fragile to be keeping score. I'm told the truth will set you free, but all of this could almost kill me.

I tried to ignore the writing on the wall. I wish I was wrong. Deep down I know you're not sleeping alone.

Just go away. I'm not gonna play these fucking games.
Just go away. I'm not gonna play these fucking games.

I spent all my days here waiting for you. I always gave us a shot, you never saw us through. Just give me a second to look in your eyes so I can come to grips that this was all a lie. How could I say goodbye?
It's not like I think about you constantly.
You always leave with the best of me.

Because I've let go of what I need the most I always wanted to be what you had wanted from me and all I hope is you forget this. I know I've made so many mistakes, but I can't make you stay so I'll go.

So you can act like this won't mean a thing, but we both know you will never forget me.

Because I've let go.
9. XIII (2:51)
I just wanted to let you know that you will never compare to me.

I forgot how mighty you are. You walk around like you're building an empire, but we know you're a fucking fad. No words just brag after brag.

Is that all you have? Just another excuse of how we got so far? Does this make you mad? Don't worry, we'll keeping living the way we are.

Not one real thing is alive inside of you.
No matter what you say, not one thing will be fucking true!!

I forgot how mighty you are. You walk around like you're building an empire, but we know you're a fucking fad. No words just brag after brag.

Is that all you have? Just another excuse of how we got so far? Does this make you mad? Don't worry, we'll keeping living the way we are.

You'll find yourself amongst the shelves, but you're never gonna "Catch that fame".
Just take a good look at yourself, nothing's ever gonna make this change.
Make this change!!
Let go.

Is that all you have? Just another excuse of how we got so far? Does this make you mad? Don't worry, we'll keeping living the way we......ARE!!!
10. The Awakening (4:16)
Let it be known, the end is visible and where you stand is critical. We can't reach what we condone, descended by the image of the cynical.

Forgive us for we didn't know it laid so visceral.

Nowhere to hide, I fear it draws close.
Head for the hills and watch it unfold.

This is the expiration of the old domain:
Devastation. We will overcome this, but for now we must suffer. For now we must pay. We have to face this (and so we march)

Back and forth, back and forth (step by step).
Back and forth, back and forth.

Guide us with your exclamation. Will the new world reach our expectations?
A striking disclosure of what's to come.
But after it's gone will there be remorse?

Open up the sky. Let it rain down and flood this world of mine. Consume us all.
Open up the sky. Let it rain down and flood this world of mine. Consume us all.

Infect us all with the masses of every foe.
We won't rest our souls tell caskets are hammered close.

Here we stand at the end of the earth.
I can see them waiting. Won't look back, the time is now it's ours for the taking.
We carry out!!
We carry out!!

I have come to realize I'm already dead.
I have come to realize I'm already dead.
