Know Hope

lyrics

When you look in the mirror, what is it that you see – a reflection of the child that you once used to be or a broken old man losing sight of their dreams? Once an angel in your mother’s eyes, that’s all that you'd be; now a demon that's thriving from a skyline of greed. I am the light that's there to guide you home – the distant echo of a voice you used to know. The bitter taste of a life that brought you everything, that you've now clouded with visions only a heartless man could see. There's no hiding from the green in your eyes, your wages paid by the worlds misfortune. Death is no longer something that we fear inside – you've already made us feel like we've died a fucking thousand times.

Can you remember when love was worth more than anything you ever earned? But with every penny spent it seems there's a lesson you never learnt. The ink bleeds on the cheques but the proceeds amount to nothing but eternal fees. The debts breed but the world sees how we'll fall victim to eternal greed. You turned your back on a world that they'd rather forget – a stranger in a life that you chose to neglect.
