Second Guessing

Album: The Decade EP (2014)

  • These eyes they have seen the world
    These feet they have walked a thousand miles
    My lungs have screamed countless melodies
    How do I find the words, the motivation?

    I know I could have it all but there's a price so high
    A drop of blood is all it takes

    Do you feel your fingertips losing their grip?
    Will they be there when you start to fall?
    I will never let go, let go of the night
    The night we decided we could have it all

    Chasing a meaningless ending
    Without a good reason I'm just second guessing
    Because I'm honestly fine beneath the wool
    Take the road less traveled
    Wait to see where it will lead
    Maybe I'm just afraid
    Maybe I am okay
    Tell me are you second guessing?
    Because you honestly seem to have it all
    Are you under control or questioning how this all ends?

    I could have it all but there's a price too high
    A drop of blood is all it takes

    Do you feel your fingertips losing their grip?
    Will they be there when you start to fall?
    I will never let go, let go of the night
    The night we decided we could have it all

    Stand and fight, swine!
    Are you man enough to confess your lies?
    Shaking the devil's hand, never missing a beat
    You are a snake amidst the jewels of thieves
    You crawl slithering cowardly fueled by empty respect
    Your soul reeks of addiction
    What's the price? Where's the line?
    Sacrificing my honor just to be what you are?
    I would rather be put to death

    Do you feel your fingertips losing their grip?
    Will they be there when you start to fall?
    I will never let go, let go of the night
    The night we decided we could have it all

    I'll never be you Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
