Pallbearer – Cruel Road lyrics
Old cruel road
It never ends
Tearing down
Every defense

It leaves me
I've lost my way so many times
From first breath
To final rest
I find the path always unwinds

My sunken hopes
Are buried deep
A revelation
Just beyond my reach

And thus
My journey's brought me home again
It's not what it used to be
Faded tracks recall my origins
And rekindle memories
Forsake that which
I worshipped then
A whole life in effigy
Set foot on the cruel road again
And pray this time will not leave me

The constant sting
A future I will never know
Forgotten loves
Left bitter tastes
They died before a chance to grow

Those days alone
Fractured beliefs
Left tattered scraps
Of former peace


Cannot let the old times be my captor
The curse upon my life must be shattered
Seize control and slough away the shackles
And tread the world unbowed
Until my body collapses on the cruel road
