lyrics

enter two men locked in old arguments
the fate of a gemini burning both ends
it's the same old lament with the best of intention
a public confession parading down memory lane

shaken awake to the truth of my state
the flames at my feet like a witch at the stake
so I conquered myself, and admit defeat
but the clock was impatient
no weight to a late apology

the flag that i surrender with
is tattered and weak
not much paler than me
cause when i bear my soul
the world it bare's it's teeth

I went with a fight convinced that I was right
cause words are so harmless, a tongue with no bite
or so i had thought, and then to my surprise
the sentiment lingered and festered inside
and the a blow to the head
and I fell to the side
a monument toppled
the ego swept out with the pride

well i tried my best to cover it
but you cannot hide the depth of fault lines
cause when tectonic plates shake
they break the last straw in the spine

but an eye for an eye
it makes it so hard to see wrong from right
and the knife into my side
it's only a pick in the ice
so i'll make my bed
and they I shall lie
the same grave that i've passed by a thousand time
out of sight, out of mind
whatever it takes to once and for all
make things right
