lyrics

Pyrrhic

You would not believe
What he said
This time
Oh, not again

Sometimes the words
He says
Are landmines
Placed on the floor

They get under skin
They raise
My blood
The pressure boils

We’re run, run, running, running out of time
Slow motion train-wreck plowing down the line
No matter how far, how hard we fight
It always seems like we lose the light

What can we do
This time
It feels
All hope is lost

They don’t relent
Or recoil
Their minds
All filled with hate

We’re fighting a war
On truth
This world
Has never seen

We’re run, run, running, running out of time
Slow motion trainwreck plowing down the line
No matter how far, how hard we fight
It always seems like we lose the light

Would it be at too great of a cost
When looking back at all that was lost
This pyrrhic notion is no victory at all
Your pathetic empire won’t stand tall

He’s on one again
He baits
And waits
Dog whistles blows

We’re run, run, running, running out of time
Slow motion trainwreck plowing down the line
No matter how far, how hard we fight
It always seems like we lose the light
