about

Everyone has to deal with disappointment at a certain point in life. Whether it is related to religion, family, friends, relationships, or society, sometimes it means you’ll have to choose to burn the bridges behind you.

lyrics

The truth
Will set us free
(But) a soft voice whispers in my ears:
Is there anything we can count on?
Heads down
And wrong turns
Tonight I watch the angels burn
Burning the ground that we have built on

No need for prayers – no more
I’ve seen this happening before
In what monsters this can turn
Just let these pages burn

But as the fire lit my thoughts
Old ideas keep fighting us
And I struggle – for what I should believe
Keep building walls around this book
Rewrite the pages that she took
We all struggle- for it’s nothing we believe

Some truths
Will set us free
And anger whispers in my ears
Where are those gods that we should count on?
Heads down
And wrong turns
Tonight I watch the angels burn
Burning everything we’ve built up

We all suffered broken hearts
At some point in our lives
Some only mildly scratched
Some were stabbed by knives

But as the fire lit my thoughts
Old ideas keep fighting us.
And I struggle – for what I should believe
Keep building walls around this book
Rewrite the pages that she took
We all struggle- for it’s nothing we believe

The truth
Will set us free
(But) a soft voice whispers in my ears:
Is there anything we can count on?
Heads down
And wrong turns
Tonight I watch the angels burn - Just let it burn - I hope you burn!
