How ferocious are we, a head full of poison,
And a pen to bleed dry, like the valley of bones.

We have gathered our sins, and soaked them in wine.
We have cheated this world, made it out with our head on our shoulders now...

Why can't we call this even?
Why do you care that I,

Would need another reason,
To tell you lies?

Keep moving like we never had a choice,
I'm burning this citadel to the ground.
Wake up as our broken bodies collide,

If we're going down, we're going down with a fight.

Keep moving on, keep dreaming on.

We we're sly as hell, and lived like the wolves,
But our crooked smiles, have disappeared.

We have gathered our sins, and soaked them in wine.
We have cheated this world, made it out with our head on our shoulders now...

Why can't we call this even?
Why do you care that I,

Would need another reason,
To tell you lies?

Keep moving like we never had a choice,
I'm burning this citadel to the ground.
Wake up as our broken bodies collide,

If we're going down, we're going down with a fight.

Keep moving on, keep dreaming on.
Keep moving on, keep dreaming on.

I fall asleep with twisted dreams,

What'd you do because I just can't seem to shake this?
I fall asleep with twisted dreams,
What'd you do because I can't move on without this?
I fall asleep with twisted dreams,

What'd you do because I just can't seem to shake this?
I fall asleep with twisted dreams,
What'd you do because I can't move on without this?

Keep moving like we never had a choice,

I'm burning this citadel to the ground.
Wake up as our broken bodies collide,
If we're going down, we're going down with a fight.

Keep moving on, keep dreaming on.

Keep moving on, keep dreaming on.

    General CommentI think the citadel is referring to the wall we build up from God.
    This wall may be made of : pride, selfishness, insecurity, greed , really anything and everything that's sinful in our nature.

    God knows that humans' hearts change, and we need his Grace. However , God still cares and loves us eventhough we as humans constantly mess up....

    Just my two cents. :D
