  • Please allow me to introduce myself
    I'm the lie you use
    Surrounded by snakes and talking sharks
    Be mindful the words you choose

    Their eyes reflecting with purpose, calling
    Welcome to the feast
    Will you follow their actions and play games
    And as they step will you repeat formalities

    Thieves of our time
    Watch as they rape your integrity
    March as the beat suggests
    Time ticks forward, towards the bottom of undoing all that
    I once loved come take your piece of me, blood or bone
    No matter, I'll still be here when you're

    Don't cross the story you were always a maybe
    Here they'll know absolutes
    Oh used and abused now left for show
    They lie from their perch to let you know
    There's no letting go

    Thieves of our time
    Watch as they rape your integrity
    March as the beat suggests
    Time ticks forward, towards the bottom of undoing all that
    I once loved come take your piece of me, blood or bone
    No matter, I'll still be here when you're
    Done

    Be here when you're
    Done
    Be here when you're

    This is my audience
    Forever one together burning stars
    Cut from the same disease
    Ever longing, what and who we are

    This is the story of a boy who lost his way and found the

    Unstruck, his courage lost
    Damaged goods, a trust now long pre

    This is my audience
    Forever one together burning stars
    Cut from the same disease
    Ever longing, what and who we are

    Take all matters into your own hands
    And I, and I, I let them play with the coward who can command
    And I, I, I now you're just a memory
    Of humanity

    (The audience, I will show all of myself)

    This is my audience
    Forever one together burning stars
    Cut from the same disease
    Ever longing, what and who we are

    This is my audience
    Forever one together burning stars
    Cut from the same disease
    Ever longing, what and who we are Writer/s: Claudio Sanchez
