  • I was walking ugliness
    With pride down the hall
    Past kings and critics
    Passed the eyes behind the wall
    And there's a home in this heart
    There's a war inside my mind
    You'll find me buried in between
    Beneath the sands of time
    Now you know
    Now you know

    The mirror only shows
    The shell of what's below
    You can't go on suffering
    And now you know
    Now you know

    Oh please virtue
    You stay close to me now
    You know I don't believe
    But you could show me how
    I was bathed in the moon
    That was rusted in the sky
    They'll tell you you can't love
    What they will not define
    Now it's time
    Now you know

    The mirror only shows
    The shell of what's below
    You can't go on suffering
    The illusion of control
    It's time for letting go
    You can't go on suffering
    And now you know
    Now you know

    I was walking ugliness
    Down the hall with pride
    Past priests and presidents
    Past a million starving eyes
    And there's a home in this heart,
    There's a war inside my mind
    You'll find me buried in between
    Beneath the sands of time
    And now you know
    Now you know
    Now you know
    Now you know

    The mirror only shows
    The shell of what's below
    The illusion of control
    It's time for letting go
    You can't go on suffering
    And now you know
    Now you know
    Now you know
    Now you know Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
