about

Anthem.

lyrics

I don't think you're who you say you are
You never could fool me
Your magic lamp is killing
What your truth could never be
And you're just some deadly old idea
Done up with mirrors and smoke
And I'm nothing but some passerby
Trapped in your inside joke

I was talking to your daddy, girl
He said to say "Hello"
He asked if you're the same surprise
That burned him long ago
And my tongue turned into leather
And my lungs turned into steel
And I knew at once that I had got
The wrong end of the deal

Sing it loud
Sing it clear
Light a candle for the ones who cannot hear
'Cause I tripped and broke my halo
And stained my brand new wings
Paradise lost
Color me gone

Well I took a trip 'cross the railroad tracks
Into your sordid past
The one you left behind
When you found out it would not last
And your legions of admirers
Victims stood as one
And they drank a toast and cursed your name
And hoped you're having fun
Yes, they hoped you're having fun

Sing it loud
Sing it clear
Light a candle for the ones who cannot hear
'Cause I tripped and broke my halo
And stained my brand new wings
Paradise lost
Color me gone
