Idolized And Vilified

Album: The Divinity Of Purpose (2013)
  • I'll take your dream
    I'll take your dream
    I'll take your dream and crush it

    Does the truth ever rain
    From the manic clouded mind
    High on their thrones
    Incapable, unkind
    Ignoring the hourglass
    Fearful of life
    When does nothing stand in the way
    Of their demise

    A master of a worthless kind
    Controls your body, soul and mind

    All or nothing
    Binge and purge
    Idolized and vilified
    I'll take your dream and crush it

    The bottom rushes up quick
    So fast they never see
    From the mountain of addiction
    Looking down at enemies

    A master of a worthless kind
    Controls your body, soul and mind

    All or nothing
    Binge and purge
    Idolized and vilified
    I'll take your dream and crush it

    Nailed down
    Fate sealed
    Worn thin
    It always turns to hurt

    I'll take your dream and crush it
    I'm done, fuck it
    I'm fucking done
    Fuck it Writer/s: CHRIS BEATTIE, JAMEY JASTA, MATTHEW P. BYRNE
