Drones – Rise Against

Deep inside these burning buildings
Voices die to be heard
Years we spent teaching a lesson
We ourselves had never learned

And if strength is born from heartbreak
Then mountains I could move
And if these walls could speak
I’d pray that they would tell me what to do

So if you see me please just walk on by
Walk on by
Forget my name and I’ll forget it too
Failed attempts at living simple lives
Simple lives
Always keep me coming back to you

No signs of life here save the embers
The occaisonal flame
We know the way but can’t remember
Conception to the grave
Shout confessions from the greatest heights
Where no one can hear
All my fears my insecurities
Are falling like tears

So if you see me please just walk on by
Walk on by
Forget my name and I’ll forget it too
Failed attempts at living simple lives
Simple lives
Always keep me coming back to you

The drones all slave away
They’re working overtime
They serve a faceless creed
They never question why
Disciples of a Ghost, a King that neither lives or breathes
But we’ve got bills to pay
We’ve got mouths to feed
I won’t come back!
