lyrics

The winner stays
A hand is raised
You claim the throne
you claim the spoils
you claim the balance, own the bruise
A trust that shadows
You never learn
You never trust
Defensive hearts
Defensive thrusts will keep you safe and sound tonight
While the darkness holds the light
A fathers demons cast you down
Down to the gallows
Could you tell me something
Give me something to believe
Cause I need something to hold on
You’re the one who said I would walk away and go
And your surprised I’m trying to leave

Lock the doors
Draw the shades
Provide the look
The one that got us here today
My only crutch my only bane
And who’s to blame
Well guide the way
Spell it out
You paint the portrait,
You choose the colors, mount the frame
You bid me out to flaunt your pain
Your fathers demons cast you down, down to the gallows
Ya I said it
And I meant it
I’d do right by you
And you can blame me
For all the same things
All I couldn’t do
Don’t you think it’s ‘cause I loved you, I loved you more than that
All you couldn’t say, I hoped you’d do.
So I’m going
and your coming
And I’m coming a
and your going
coming, going, coming

Could you tell me something
Give me something to believe
Cause I need something to hold on
You’re the one who said I would walk away and go
And your surprised I’m trying to leave

Never did I want to leave
I can’t control your silent plea’s
And I can’t control you
I can’t control you
Trust me, I tried to
Never did I want to leave
I can’t condone your violent needs
And I can’t control you
I can’t console your silent plea’s
I can’t control you
