lyrics

You wanted the world
You wanted the world to burn
Cleanse our lives and start again
And I never believed it

These castle walls are shattering
The Earth is open wide
Swallowing all that I’ve toiled for
My blood and sweat to make this life less foreign
To stop our might from falling

So ask me
Why would I stoke the fire brighter?
To see through my consequences lost
I failed to let us start again
What have I done?
Become the catalyst to being as one and all

None of us are innocent
But what makes all this worth it once you’ve folded?
This isn’t how the game ends

How did you dream of it?
No value for life
How has it come to this?
Dismantle our crown

And I failed to let you fall and change the world
To let your vision die

You wanted the world to burn
Cleanse our lives and start again
And I never believed in you

Why would I stoke the fire brighter?
To see through my consequences lost
I failed to let us start again
What have I done?
Become the catalyst to being as one
