Fortress

  • Am I lost to wander forever
    Perhaps for the rest of my days?
    If all that has been surrounded will just go to waste

    You left me out in the distance
    To wander this world on my own
    Sometimes it's so hard to admit it but I can't let go
    I can't let you go

    Go on and take it all, go on and take it all
    Fortress coming down
    I know we can't save it all I know we can't save it all
    Everything is gone
    Oh I have seen it all Oh I have seen it all
    Fortress coming down
    Go on and take it all, go on and take it all

    One thing I know is for certain
    We cannot have all we want
    Still this will not stop the hurting, It is never gone

    Now I hold on to the one thing
    Too fragile to stand on its own
    The fortress we built it is crumbling still I can't let go
    I can't let you go

    Go on and take it all, go on and take it all
    Fortress coming down
    I know we can't save it all I know we can't save it all
    Everything is gone
    Oh I have seen it all Oh I have seen it all
    Fortress coming down
    Go on and take it all, go on and take it all

    Fortress coming down

    Oh, there'll come a time, yes I know
    There'll come a time you'll look back and regret when it's gone
    You'll look back and regret when I's gone
    Oh, here'll come a time yes I know
    There'll come a time you look back and regret when it's gone
    You'll look back and regret when I's gone

    In the end, too far gone, this I can't deny
    Still I keep holding on and on
    There's still time
    On the outside looking in everything seems fine
    But the fortress caving in comes down
    On me tonight

    Go on and take it all, go on and take it all
    Fortress coming down
    I know we can't save it all I know we can't save it all
    Everything is gone
    Oh I have seen it all Oh I have seen it all
    Fortress coming down
    Go on and take it all, go on and take it all

    Just take it all
    Just take it all
    Just take it all Writer/s: MARK TREMONTI, MYLES KENNEDY, SCOTT PHILLIPS
