I caught you on the sly my friend You’re banging down my door again I’ve seen you this way more than I can count Swinging from your prison gates And brave enough to tempt your fate But who are you gonna leave behind to crawl? I’ve seen you in magnificence But now you’re never making sense And no-one gives a f*** about you now Are you leaving me? Are you leaving me? Calling to my Seraphim Protect me from your medicine You know I never lost my faith in you But there’s nothing in this bag of tricks And I can’t carry all of this But the more I take the more you want me to A lie becomes a tapestry And it always keeps you far from me You’re spitting on the faces of your crowd Are you leaving me? Are you leaving me now? Are you leaving me? Are you leaving me? Thought you’d play the innocent But I found your dirty fingerprints So don’t you tell me you’re not coming down So if you’re leaving me If you’re leaving me Do it now Are you leaving me? Are you leaving me?

This Town 03:22
Out of the arms of a cold embrace How we lay on our backs like stones And you said to me, that I'd never know How it felt to be completely alone I can't remember those parts of our lives When I'm blinded by my apathy But I know one thing I made a promise to you and You made a promise to me One day we're gonna rule this town Are you out or are you in? One day we're gonna rule this town But it won't mean a thing Back to the cold light of day how I woke And I lay and I stared at the sun You left for work, and I lay and I cried And I prayed I could be someone If I can admit that I've been a fool And I've run us both into the ground If I pick myself up, will you pull me back down Will you stay will you have me around? One day we're gonna rule this town Are you out or are you in? One day we're gonna rule this town But it won't mean a thing

To the western pier Where we’ve always gone to catch the final rays It’s a groaning skeleton, a frame, a cage “Another day will dawn” whispers mother flame We must change Dead, dirty streets Will resurrect like Lazurus beneath our feet We’ll rise again, we won’t accept defeat But until then, afraid to even breathe We must retreat CHORUS 1 My love You know it’s alright to be afraid As the twilight slips into the shade But our ship is coming on the waves Don’t loose faith VERSE 2 State of emergency Unbalancing the scales for every man Broadcasting urgency to cover up their scam They’re hoping we will lose ourselves to fear The means, the messenger, the atmosphere CHORUS 2 My love You know it’s alright to fear the times The truth is today some of us will die We must question what it means to be alive And survive CHORUS 3 My love You know it’s alright to be afraid When all our protection must be handmade Truth is, we have been betrayed We have strayed FINAL VERSE To the western pier To catch the burning pyre in a blaze Above the skeletons the sky in flames Another day will dawn, but we are not the same Now the suns coming up on everything we overcame Now the suns coming up on everything we overcame
