Lyrics

Like a vision that’s revealing from the brocade of your tomb
The sea of stunning new disciples parts when you walk in the room
You chime of recreation, it’s a subtle wake up call
It’s only in your own blood they see the writing on the wall

Your banking on the fortune tellers to come out good for you
while the adoration of a thousand pair of eyes is testimonial proof
Prophet for the masses, you better rattle that ball and chain
It’s a heavy weight to bear, the benchmark of your name

You live and you breathe and you feel
You doubt and contradict and conceal
Soul tired thirsting for solid ground
If they knew what’s on your table
They would never come around

So you withdraw to stay connected to the world outside the glass
Like a travelling exhibit reading lips of opinions cast
You walk in your own shadow, they’re all waiting to get wise
Like you hold the ten commandments while the faithful analyse

Passed down through generations, epitomised so literal
Like every word you utter is so pivotal
Flowers in your pathway so mortal to dismiss
But it’s just one man and his meaning when it all comes down to it.

You live and you breathe and you feel
You doubt and contradict and conceal
Soul tired thirsting for solid ground
If they knew what’s on your table
They would never come around
