Woe Is Me – If Not, For Ourselves lyrics

I think you've just about lost
Your sense of self
Your foundations are crumbling down

I told you so, told you so
Don't be the one to say you know what's right
I told you so, told you so
Don't be the one to say you know my heart
Don't be torn from your roots, you won't live in this pursuit
You won't survive above this ground
It won't be long until you're homebound

Stop pretending
Drawing the lines you're not concerned about me
I'm losing confidence
Why do you show no mercy?

These branches are burning
These branches won't pull me down
Back to the ground, where I am standing
Safe and sound

Who are you, to tell us who we are?
Who are you, you're a fiend, you're a liar
And I will summon the hands of a fighter
And you will know, who we are.

You say you know who I am
You'll only bring me down
You'll only bring me down
You left me cold at home
To fight the foundation
And the walls are crumbling down.
