lyrics

You either die young and idealistic,
Or live long enough to see your heroes go flabby and inane.
Now might be the time to be realistic,
Make a choice or go insane.

Suitably ready to pack it all in.
This space I’ve created, it stays grey and unfinished.
Rough at the edges; this vessel remains empty.
Bereft of the finer things.

I’ve grown like a weed through paving slabs,
Malnourished, feeding on dirt and stubborn as hell.
Finding it difficult to pull up my roots.
I guess I’ll be here forever.

I’ve started to see a pattern emerge.
Either falling or failing, my heroes can’t save me now.
Seen them grow tired, fucked up and uninspired,
Failing to show me how:

To lead the way, (or say what I want to say)
Lead the way, (just say anything)
Lead the way (say what I want to say)
Lead the way, or just say anything.

So, bring me the heads of my demons.
Watch me forgive as I look them in the eyes.
Tonight, I will blossom and grow,
Knowing that I’m finally in control.

My domain is mine.
My kingdom is mine.
