04. When the Idol Dies

The Listening LP
by The Listening



 

There's no way to tell you, there's no warning bell
No one can prepare you for the fires of hell…

Tried to make it clear, I told you all
Left my mobile on but you never called me…
Telephone a friend but he don’t wanna talk
Leaving you a message...I’m gonna end it all

Seeing many things but you don’t observe…
You just never thought you’d ever see me...
you'd ever see me here
Opening your ears, but you don’t hear a word
You just never thought they'd be...

Taking everything they could take from me
Breaking everything they could break of me...

You’ve made idols from the stars in your eyes
You’ve made an idol, and now your idol dies

Seeing many things but you don’t observe…
You just never thought you’d ever see me here
Opening your ears, but you don’t hear a word
You just never thought you’d ever see me here…

I've held my peace for a long, long time
Still and quiet I speak my mind
You pretend to listen, pretend to sigh
Like you give attention and have the time

Switch your eyes to caring, your voice to lie
When it gets heavy and makes me cry
You huddle in the dark, but walk in the light
Giving me an answer that makes you right…

Taking everything they could take from me
they're breaking everything they could break of me
But if I have you for me, then I have everything

Sip the cup of wine to toast
Hold the break before its broke
Some cast lots to get the cloak
and some deny the things they know...
but they'll remember what was said
when its lifted from the dead...

nothing hidden, its all exposed
Its all in the open and overthrown
Going back home with my blood on your clothes
Blood on your spirit, the blood on the skull

Words to the face, fists were thrown
Hurting so bad, you're hurt and you're torn
They left me for dead, and left me alone…
Gave me for nothing, but I’m leaving you hope

Taking everything they could take from me
they're breaking everything they could break of me
But if I have you for me, then I have everything
