lyrics

I'm losing ground
I'm losing sight of everything I'd thought I'd found in you
And all the things I thought I knew were just there
To bend the truth, to make it seem
Like you're a decent human being
The cowards always throw up
The best smoke screen

In brightest day, in blackest night
You swore an oath, now make it right
When did your honour commit suicide?
You were my hero in the day
You chose to throw it all away (Okay)
In lieu of something safe

Our young eyes carved our fathers from blocks of brass
Time proved their skeletons more akin to glass
This illusion is hollow and I will not follow your footsteps of the cliff
I'll just bury my head in the sand at the edge of it

In brightest day, in blackest night
You swore an oath, now make it right
When did your honour commit suicide?
You were my hero in the day
You chose to throw it all away (Okay)
In lieu of something safe

A beast asleep deep in my veins
How much longer 'til it awakes?
And when we're finally face to face,
Will all my courage melt away?
