  • Tear away the pages so we won't remember time
    Do this now and you'll regret it further down the line
    Do you think we're the first ones who have been right here before
    Look around and you will see that there is so much more
    There is more to life than just their lies

    Cause these are the hands of a wicked man in a world that doesn't care
    If he builds or if he breaks
    If he gives, if he takes
    These are the lies of a bitter heart that we may never understand
    They'll promise the world but they will only take it all away again

    They keep us entertained inside a world before our eyes
    A never-ending circus to distract us from their lies
    The war of ones and zero's makes a hero of us all
    But he who rises highest rises highest for the fall
    We throw away our dreams to buy their lies

    These are the hands of a wicked man in a world that doesn't care
    If he builds or if he breaks
    If he gives, if he takes
    These are the lies of a bitter heart that we may never understand
    They'll promise the world but they will only take it all away again

    And we won't know until it's too late
    And it's gone
    And then we find out right where we went wrong
    Again

    These are the hands of a wicked man in a world that doesn't care
    If he builds or if he breaks
    If he gives, if he takes
    These are the lies of a bitter heart that we may never understand
    They'll promise the world but they will only take it all away again Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
