Take it all
I never needed any more than days on days and gentle nights
When nothing could stop me

Keep it safe
Taking secrets to the grave
When I was the king
Just for that one day
When nothing could stop me

Feed my soul
Force a smile
Ignore the hole
Wishing like hell that I was still god
With nothing above me

Read my eyes
Weary lines
Taking what's mine
Just soil below and nothing above me

Feed my soul, marigold
I'd rather starve than choke what's killing me down
Give me heresy
We were never told the truth
The world that spoke, calm these hands
Before they can reach your throat
Give me eyes to see her never growing old
Good news
They hope you choke
Take heart
It's all fool's gold

Leave me there
Pockets full of empty air
Paying my penance, curse this prayer
Regret never touched me

She will stay, dressed in choices that I made
Head like a king, but crown like a gravestone
Don't touch me

Feed my soul, marigold
I'd rather starve than choke what's killing me down
Give me heresy
We were never told the truth
The world that spoke, calm these hands
Before they can reach your throat
Give me eyes to see her never growing old
Good news
They hope you choke
Take heart
It's all fool's gold

With these hands, I could change the world
More than gold, more that I deserve
With these hands, I could change the world
I am a wealthy man, I am loved
Tell me hope's not lost
Soon you'll see I can't take it with me
When to nothing I fade, gone, borne by the choices I made
Wake up, wake up, and soon you'll see that all hope is not lost
Not gone
