Bodi - Anagnorisis Lyrics
Never let em down? Now how's that sound?
Who you gonna hold if you can't see the ground?
How you gonna stand up if you were built to fall?
How you think you're gonna soar, hoping you're not gonna stall?
All alone. Born to roam
Borders sewn off from each other, call it home
Go and try to mend the sand, but who you think will give a damn
Let the waves break, and
Let the tide take, you
Out of the race, erased
You escape to-
Night, underneath moon
Light, you can see whose
Might's gonna reach to
Heights you can't leap to
Fright, that's what keeps you
Right, where you think you
Like, but the flight-fight eats you alive
And you can't decide whether you should speak or stand or run
Or hold your tongue or reach the end, defend or lend a hand or gun
And you've become everything you said you wouldn't
And you can't hold the world because you never understood it
Crooked little smile that you aim
At the man in the mirror framed where you place the blame
Foolish, little useless, simple-minded you believed
That you could breath and change the world before it came your time to leave
And see the hands of fate and stack the deck against it, it's naive
That you could call a bluff on lady luck with ace inside her sleeve
Who you think you are, talking to your shadow?
Try to save a world, locked in a civil battle
Gallows overpopulated, preaching to the congregated
Converted is how sense is made
Of flags turned to army blankets
Weightless, cause you can't hold your own
And soon all you are is a name on a stone
Cold case close, tagged toes, made those choices
Solo, maybe you should listen to the voices
Rattling around inside of your head
Who you think will care in the end when you've fled?
Less self or selfish, it's high-time you learn
As the flames rage, you'll watch em all burn
