Words As Weapons

Album: Isolate And Medicate (2014)
  • All I really want is something beautiful to say

    Keep me locked up in your broken mind
    I keep searchin, never been able to find a
    Light behind your dead eyes
    Not anything at all

    You keep living in your own lie, ever deceitful and ever unfaithful
    Keep me guessin, keep me terrified
    Take everything from my world

    Say can you help me right before the fall
    Take what you can and leave me to the wolves

    Keep me dumb, keep me paralyzed
    Why try swimming? I'm drowning in fables
    You're not that saint that you externalize
    You're not anything at all

    It's oh-so playful when you demonize
    To spit out the hateful, you're willing and able
    Words are weapons I'd be terrified
    You're nothing in my world

    Say can you help me right before the fall
    Take what you can and leave me to the wolves

    All I really want is something beautiful to say
    Keep me guessin, keep me terrified

    All I really want is something beautiful to say
    You keep livin' in your own lie

    All I really want is something beautiful to say
    To never fade away, I wanna live forever!

    All I really want is something beautiful to say
    To never fade away, I wanna live forever!

    You keep living in your own lie
    Keep me guessin, keep me terrified

    All I really want is something beautiful to say

    Say can you help me right before the fall
    Take what you can and leave me to the wolves

    All I really want is something beautiful to say
    Words are weapons I'd be terrified

    All I really want is something beautiful to say
    Keep me guessin, keep me terrified

    All I really want is something beautiful to say
    To never fade away, I wanna live forever!

    All I really want is something beautiful to say
    To never fade away, I wanna live forever! Writer/s: DALE WILLIAM STEWART, JOHN STEPHEN HUMPHREY, SHAUN MORGAN WELGEMOED
