And All As One

It's about how the deeds and words of others can make your world crash around you

Do you count the times that we kissed

On the grass with dirt under my fingernails

Do you count the chances that we missed

Do you count the many times that we failed

 

This, the promised land

Heroes march hand in hand

And all as one

Sink into the sand

 

Day by day

Someone braver than me will come

Someone better than me will fall

It's an endless cycle of pain

Noone can hear our cries within these walls

 

Let's never forget

The ghost of our love now laid to rest

Because none of us knew what was best

Never knew what we were fighting for

The darkness in the corner we couldn't ignore

 

This, the promised land

Heroes march hand in hand

And all as one

Sink into the sand

 

Do you hear the words ill-spoken

A mental note of all said and done

Hear the cries of the birds and hearts broken

Did you ever want us to fly and run

 

Night by night

People speak of what was greater than us

People's business, a sated bloodlust

It's an endless cycle of pain

Our good intentions, ground into dust

 

This, the promised land

Heroes march hand in hand

And all as one

Sink into the sand

The End
