Anthem For A Lost Cause

Album: Rewind The Film (2013)
  • It's a cold and lonely message
    At the end of a song
    It invaded hearts and minds
    But they couldn't get along
    It can ask you to remember
    It can ask you for a dance
    So it seems that every song
    Now is just one last chance

    Take this, it's yours
    An anthem for a lost cause
    Now ashes, bone and splinter
    What once was a glittering prize
    The composition rites

    Oh redemption, love and departure
    I think your work is done
    Paris, St. Petersburg don't need a tower of song
    Escape's not worth the capture
    So walk that lonesome road
    No joy or earthly rapture
    Nothing to take the load

    Take this, it's yours
    An anthem for a lost cause
    Now ashes, bone and splinter
    What once was a glittering prize
    The composition rites

    Take this, it's yours
    An anthem for a lost cause
    Now ashes, bone and splinter
    What once was a glittering prize
    The composition rites

    Yours?
    Cause?

    Take this, it's yours
    An anthem for a lost cause
    Now ashes, bone and splinter
    What once was a glittering prize
    The composition rites Writer/s: JAMES BRADFIELD, NICHOLAS JONES, SEAN MOORE
