SycAmour – The Measure lyrics
Fuck, Again
I want to be a man
But I love all the sin and the cigarette ash
Black lips, Amen
I want to be a saint
But I love all the darkness, lights just burn my skin

Let me in. Let me in
I can make em understand, I can be your favorite
Lover. Under all the blood and cement
I know can be the sun, I can see the lights
Flickering above your sanctuary
Guide children of the night into the vultures den
Fluorescent white light beams through window frames to lie to mankind
Deaf, dumb and blind, all fall in line, in time to worship the sun
But it's cold outside
Won't you come in?

What is the measure of a man who
Used to believe in something, used to believe I'd change everything but
I can't remember why
Now I can't find the time to light this fire behind my eyes

Oh, what's to show
A million-and-one love-lost souls?
You wanted control
But we both know:
We'll thrive where you can't see the lights

Drug obsessed. 6 o'clock, stimulants
I need my medication. Pump it in my veins doctor
Am I an actor? My stage falling apart
But I can't see the sun. I can feel my heart

Oh, what's to show
A million-and-one love-lost souls?
You wanted control
But we both know:
We'll thrive where you can't see the lights

(We're dancing underground)
Never been alive a day in my life
Tried to find god but we're running out of time
Never really thought that I could trust you
Come to find out that's all that I can do

I want to die
Spill my life-force, watch it drain out of my veins
I'm to blame
Pain derived from my self-righteous poetry

I want to die
Spill my life-force, watch it drain out of my veins
I'm to blame
Pain derived from my self-righteous poetry

What is the measure of a man who
Used to believe in something, used to believe I'd change everything but
I can't remember why
Now I can't find the time to light this fire behind my eyes
