Eidola – Forgotten Tongues Lyrics

And I’ve lost my way trying to believe I’m okay
Living with the guilt of every mistake I made

I saw you weep
Gave you all my blood
Watched it leave my veins
Cascading crimson life
I counted every time
The light inside your eyes went dark
Seeking a matriarch

To redeem me

Come make me into something new
A depiction of broader view
Come break me down and build me up like energy

I gave you all my bones
Watched you build a throne
Only to be torn down
And I counted every lie
Balanced every time I tried
To bargain with my own life

To believe I am worth anything

Come make me into something new
A depiction of broader view
Come break me down and build me up like energy

Why do I even try to fight?
It all turns out the same
Pulling punches in the rain
To keep you here

Do you believe me now
If I bear my soul
Or will you cast me out
If I lose control?

And you’ve got to put your bodies upon the gears, and upon the wheels, upon the leavers. Upon all the apparatus. And you’ve got to make it stop. And you’ve got to indicate to the people who run it to the people who own that unless You’re free the machine will be prevented from working at all!

What a desolate view, definition and truth
Like sand through an hourglass
A candle held blindly turns night into day
In whispers you’ll hear them say…

So give me all you can give!
Stay standing still, life just isn’t long enough to wait for you

Don’t make the same mistakes
A heart without a place
I am my own saving grace
Don’t make the same mistakes
My mind cannot erase
I am my own saving grace
