I Shot The Albatross – To The Cliffs lyrics

I've been building these walls
Framing these defenses
To keep you from
Seeing what I've become

I've become a plague
I've become a plague

I've become a parasite to all that I touch
To all that I touch

A parasite, a parasite

The hull of my vessel
Can never be shattered
But the winds with which I wrestle
Leave my sails torn and tattered

So I'll tie my ship to yours
And a blindfold for my eyes
As you guide me through these shores
I believe all your cunning lies

A beggar in a world of thieves
I've cheated more than death as I've ravaged the halls of innocence.
These hands have buried more than the truth.
The lies I created have turned into demons, haunting my dreams.
Haunting my dreams...

We are legion (they scream at me)
We are legion (they beckon me)
We are legion

I am a dead man, where is the end
I am a dead man, where...

I am a dead man, where is the end?
I am a dead man, where is the truth?
I am a dead man, where is the end?
I am a dead man, where is the truth?
