lyrics

We all hear the notes differently
Although they are played on the same key
It’s like the sea playing a tune that the wind can’t understand
It’s the noose being presented to the innocent man

And our lives will one day end
Do you know where you stand?

This is a draw
Yet both the birds will be killed
By the same stone they perched atop
This is a draw
This is a draw

And if I die
Then tell the waves to cease to the surface
And float me back to where my face met the gravel
So I can watch the impossible
So I can watch the heroes head roll

I’m not the anchor for the dead
I’m the noose around your neck

With these thoughts at my heels
I’ll die as a lived

Run from the cadence unfamiliar
And face the masses who rush toward
The dream refused to know
Though your goal shares a similar flow

If I die
Then tell the waves to cease to the surface
And float me back to where my face met the gravel

Snap at me again
I’ll snap your neck
