I felt no guilt till I was caught and I was told that I was guilty
And even then I wasn't really sure, yeah yeah
But the thing I felt was guilt itself, or maybe it was something else
Frustration at the fact that I was ever caught at all
I told a lie that multiplied by the time I realized it
I`d given up everything I'd ever loved, yeah yeah
'Cause the thing you lack when you're looking back
Is the pressure, the you feel that you have to act
Everything is clearer when you're looking at the past oh no...

And I don't care if I lose because my heroes did too
They shouted, 'Court should be adjourned because the jury are fools!
And the judge can't decipher his left from his right or his right from his wrong
And I will bite the hand that thieves, I will not turn the other cheek
This is no threat it is a promise I will keep
So what's the point pretending when we've seen behind the curtain and there's nothing much to see, oh yeah....

I felt no pain till I was down and I was told that I was bleeding
And even then I knew I wasn't done, yeah yeah
'Cause the scars I get they will just collect insuring that I won't forget
Reminders of the battles that I've lost and that I've won
And I will fight till I have died
Or my enemies are allies
But even then I will sleep with an open eye, yeah yeah
'Cause the night is long and the foes are strong
But I know that the road will travel on
It only seems so dark because we've almost reached the dawn oh no...

And I don't care if I lose because my heroes did too
They shouted, 'Court should be adjourned because the jury are fools!
And the judge can't decipher his left from his right or his right from his wrong
And I will bite the hand that thieves, I will not turn the other cheek
This is no threat it is a promise I will keep
So what's the point pretending when we've seen behind the curtain and there's nothing much to see, oh yeah....

And everyone will claim, that they knew from the beginning
Exactly how it ends, but they still just went on sinning
The sudden rush you feel when realizing everything you know will fade away
It haunts you dear, but you don't wanna let it go
Someday we'll lose the war
But 'till then we will dream of winning

I won't forget the things you said when I was down and I was tired of it
The words you spoke, they brought me home

When it was time to fight, I chose a side
But I knew in my heart that something didn't feel right
So I stood my ground, I waited for a sign, and I sang....

Oh I don't care if I lose because my heroes did too
They shouted, 'Court should be adjourned because the jury are fools!
And the judge can't decipher his left from his right or his right from his wrong
And I will bite the hand that thieves, I will not turn the other cheek
This is no threat it is a promise I will keep

So what's the point pretending when we've seen behind the curtain and there's nothing much to see
