Lyrics

Symptoms of repetition
that I'd caught one day
Every cure that I had to try,
was just snake oil in my veins
Wheeling all the reasons
with a broken window display
Every one that took a gander
went about and diminished in their ways

Have it, oh I've had it
And slowly I wrought away
Feeling, breathless stealing
Soon after my senses read dismayed

Can I venture solace
in a place they've redesigned?
Try to keep the dream awake
as eyelids slowly rise

Echoes of indecision
when a dull flipped coin leads the way
Rolling, unrelenting
headed towards the cracks of uncertainty
As faith skips, broken legged
on an unpaved lot on a moonless night
Sympathetic crutches only spoil the cast
leaving you hidden right in plain sight

Relieving, but still deceiving
Submitting, passive to the arduous fight
I've heard it said all's fair in love and war
but that doesn't mean that I heard it right

Can I venture solace
in a place they've redesigned?
Try to keep the dream awake
as eyelids slowly rise

Burning array
Phoenix thought unfurled
Burning array
Awaken what's forgotten

Can I venture solace
in a place they've redesigned?
Try to keep the dream awake
as eyelids slowly rise

Symptoms of repetition
that I'd caught one day
Every cure that I had to try,
was just snake oil in my veins
