You let me in so I could guide your hand
A quest for gold that yielded lead
So many things I still don't understand
Would rear their ugly heads instead

No instigation, just run away
With nothing to fall back on, no skin left to flay

What you needed the most were no more of these ghosts of my broken promises
What you needed the most never even came close to my broken promises

Sedated sorrow palms a lazy coin
You'll find no vindication here
Flashing a fast lane if you've come to join
The ill fated fortune of the year

Castles we built now crumble like smiles
Skeleton hope now eaten by trials

What you needed the most were no more of these ghosts of my broken promises
What you needed the most never even came close to my broken promises

How you choose to wear your heart
is how they’ll cast your part
How you choose to wear your heart
You wear a world upon your sleeve
The way you choose to wear your heart
is how they will tear you apart
Do you choose to save the world or to deceive
