Shattered God

Album: Black Veil Brides (2014)
  • Failure and apathy descend
    Success just hasn't been your friend
    You live a lie high as the sky
    This taste like iron, blood and greed
    Tell us of what you'll never be
    I won't ask why, just let it die

    Sleeping tight in your insanity
    The truth could remedy

    You stole it all, sold them your soul give it up
    You are, you are forever alone
    Casting your stones, give it up
    You are, you are the shattered god

    I try with every ounce of hell
    To pry you open from your shell
    Twisting the knife
    Regretting your life
    Your eyes are empty like your bed
    Somehow you haven't wound up dead
    Chances passed by
    You'll never fly

    Singing hymns about the sins you see
    But you'll never hear from me

    You stole it all, sold them your soul give it up
    You are, you are forever alone
    Casting your stones, give it up
    You are, you are the shattered god

    Feel the embrace, all of the hate
    I have watched you fall
    Finding your words sounding like silence
    You've already said it all

    You stole it all, sold them your soul give it up
    You are, you are forever alone
    Casting your stones, give it up
    You are, you are the shattered god

    You are, you are the shattered god
    You are, you are the shattered god
