lyrics

beginning to feel
like a part of history
crowning of Kings
creating a mystery
ye, we understand
we don't have a shout

we pick all the pieces
and squeeze them to fit
missed opportunities
and all of them regrets
eager to learn
but with wisdom comes doubt

you're damned if you do & you're damned if you don't

a taste in the mouth
from licking the powers that be
not taking chances
utter complacency
we wont be judged
of this we've no doubts

you're damned if you do & you're damned if you don't

if there was a God
I wore him out

i'm sorry
we are a part
but we don't belong here
we are a part
but we don't belong here

a fatal blow
for the innocent
the takers of
what's beautiful

they'll lay you down
they'll pick you up
they'll be the ones
to fuck you up
so we'll leave today
we'll leave today

if there was a God
I wore him out
if there was a God
I wore him out
