lyrics

In each heart, a secret lair
Where all the hurt and pain comes from
And in it lies in silent prayer
The beasts that we will soon become

And yet
We carry on
Each breath is drawn
And though it’s wrong
We sing this song

In each man, a muzzled cry
That keeps what’s on the inside in
And as the world seeps through our eyes
The skin we bear is getting thin

And yet
We carry on
Each breath is drawn
And though it’s wrong
We sing this song

I can’t play from the outside
I have to try to get in and see
I can’t play from the inside
Join your hands and set me free

In each land an open wound
That leaks of green, and gold, and tar
And though it heals, we assume
Beneath it lies a lasting scar

And yet
We carry on
Each breath is drawn
And though it’s wrong
We sing this song
