Lyrics

Hotel

Written By: Stoyic

So composed in front of you
He pulls the trigger with his eyes of blue
No afterthought, no fear
Cos it’s only an act…..what an act
You’ve got so much you could say
He says it doesn’t matter anyway
And all you ever had ripped apart at the seams
As he screams

Back in my hotel, no I’m not running fine
Each face is here right now
They’re pulling me across that line
Who are they to dream?
And who am I to care?
So if you ask I just stare
I wasn’t there

Nothing left, no trace of you
He turns away and to a better view
Is there another world?
Somewhere else he can be, somewhere clean
What was that you had to say?
Cause now it doesn’t matter anyway
And all you ever had going up in the smoke
As he chokes

Back in my hotel, no I’m not running fine
Each face is here right now
They’re pulling me across that line
Who are they to dream?
And who am I to care?
So if you ask I just stare-
I wasn’t there

Burn Our Flags

Written By: Robin Southwell

Covered in gold
I sit alone and watch the ocean
And when I’m old
I’d like to see the same horizon
I’d like to feel the same breeze on my face
But I hear thunder
And it’s ringing in my head

Yeah, and as the bullets fly
Like rain upon the mountainside
And as they start to fall do you care at all
Because I’m screaming out to a crowd and there’s no one listening
You’re walking by, living life and I’m sat here wishing
That we can turn our guns around
Burn our flags into the ground
Have we forgotten who we are

Covered in black
I lie awake beneath these footsteps
The walls are scratched
I scraped my fingernails to pieces
When I was young I felt the sun
But now I’m cold and buried
Beneath a world that hasn’t changed

Yeah, and as the bullets fly
Like rain upon the mountainside
And as they start to fall do you care at all
Because I’m screaming out to a crowd and there’s no one listening
You’re walking by, living life and I’m sat here wishing
That we can turn our guns around
Burn our flags into the ground
Have we forgotten who we are

You led us to the end
You led us to the very end
