lyrics

We are the fallen kings once sensible
With every moment a chance to resolve
We are the fallen kings now responsible
Building an empire on broken bones

I learned to swallow my pride
And only then could I stomach the truth
I stare with blindfolded eyes at the divide
A room of hypocrites the one percent
Dispute and refute the solution
Stiff necked looking above, for answers below

I’m ashamed the game became so addictive
Floating further away

Empty vessels float in an empty space
Searching for answers
With no direction how can we expect to change

I stare in disbelief when ordered to ignore it
This holy masquerade it cares for no one
Praying for pardon, blind sinners
Begging to be a martyr
Their broken necks looking above, for answers below

I’m ashamed the game became so addictive
Floating further away

I walk against the grain
I’ve only so much strength until I break
Until I break
Can we stay afloat, can we stay afloat?

Empty vessels float in an empty space
Searching for answers
With no direction how can we expect to change
Can we be the warmth in a world so cold
Can we look beyond all the glitter and gold?
We're building an empire on broken bones
