August Burns Red – Martyr lyrics

Demand what you will never deserve
Respect is gained by trust shown and earned
Don't mask your pride with humility,
While forcing others to prove their loyalty

You've been a hypocrite for years,
Drawing swords as much as you draw their tears
Demand what you will never deserve
Respect is gained by trust shown and earned

You build you strength off of your anger,
Fighting a selfish battle with no answer
Your transparency has started showing
Don't let fear guide you where you are going

You would die for everyone else,
But you won't live for yourself

Do you mean what you say?
Do you say what you mean,
Or will you find another lie
Another lie to hide behind?
Keep speaking to the world about
What you can't forget, you can't forget
All the things you hold onto,
Refusing to forgive those that hurt you

You're taking steps on a fine line, so you don't have to choose a side
Good deeds are not recognized, when the heart's intent is full of pride
You're taking steps on a fine line, so you don't have to choose a side
Good deeds are not recognized, when the heart's intent is full of pride
One day we hope you stop holding it on all in, and learn to let go and forgive (forgive)
