Phyrric

V1

Thread and weave together
I believed we could stand forever
“But one more such victory
Would utterly undo me”

Pre-chorus

My friends and I, side by side
Face oblivion, we stand to die
(This phyrric victory, )
(she) will definitely leave me
A ghost of the man I used to be.

Chorus 1

My friends, won’t do this again,
Terrified of what they might find,
Hidden inside drunken smiles.
I’ve said too much, I’ve said too little
(Can you feel my earth shake?)

V2

There are losses you can’t shake
Collecting dead in battles wake
We spread their blood like war paint
To show an anger you could never fake

Pre-Chorus

My friends and I, (die) side by side
Face oblivion, we stand to die
(This crusade’s wrong)
(she) has definitely left me
A ghost of the man I used to be.

Chorus

My friends, won’t do this again,
Terrified of what they might find,
Hidden inside bloodied smiles.
I’ve said too much, I’ve said too little
(Can you feel my earth shake?)

Chorus 2

I will never be all alone in my heart
Though I knew this from the start
Dreaming of victory
Her ghost will remain with me.

Bridge

Her irises clouded with the chimera of death
I can’t assuage myself with the myth of success
My ethereal friends, stand, side by side
In the city that was never mine (to take from them)

No luck, no godspeed ahead
I blindly endeavour
For a halcyon mind.

Chorus 2

I will never be all alone in my heart
Though I knew this from the start
Dreaming of victory
Her ghost will remain with me.
(As I will forever remain with her)

The End
