Burner 03:08
Wait for me by the sea I’ll tell you everything you needed to believe Through encoded messages and texts Communication at its best, that’s me Can’t you see me smiling Through the teeth made out of wood? This feint’s not working out so good, you see I’m a bit of everything, a farce from the start You were the ruse, you were the cover, of a deception like no other You’ll know the truth when you discover I’m more than an inconvenient lover I’ll try to keep the intelligence brief This plot is not as thick as it seems to me I’ll stand here outside in the cold Waiting for an ally to relieve my post A turncoat switched at your behest Treason’s not so bad in jest, I’m told My allegiance has been sold An infiltrator in your care, a snake in the grass, I know you’re scared But I won’t succumb to fear like a shade in the dark Can you release me from this service, ‘Cause no one here deserves this The winds of change will clear the way And leave me with a world to pave You would bless me if you cursed this ‘Cause it’s too late to reverse this We’ve come too far to clear the stain I’ll build my house out of the waste
This house isn’t the same, it’s worn and rotting It’s lost its soul like its inhabitants There’s no mercy for the weak And the future’s looking bleak Wish I could say I thought that you did your best A reason you’re a coffin made of flesh Wish you could be yourself, you were never anyone else You said you’re scared you won’t see me in Heaven But I don’t see you now anyway You used to have a garden It was beautiful, I miss it every day Now I’m not saying everything was perfect It was nothing that resembled normalcy When you go in the grave, no one will call you brave ‘Cause you chose to stand by someone that destroyed us Said you just took your orders from above But you did nothing for love And you never chose your sons Every day you warmed the blade cutting our insides Every day you massacred the time we gave You used to have a garden but you destroyed it Now it’s withered away
