Bright & Honoured

lyrics

There is a lie in all beliefs.
A war in every one’s hope.
Your mind, your body and your soul
Are the battlefields of modern days.

Nonetheless, you shall never be
This face you cherish, this face you worship.
This face they cherish, this face they worship.
This face they perish for, this face they kill for.

Doomed and locked in a shell.
A bridge that embraced me from birth to death.
To live one true hell is to live in the one we’re living in.
When you have nothing else to do but fight and pray.

This is a life that we’ll never forget.
This life we have, this life we have to regret.
Was this a time we shall remember?
A moment fixed, bright and honoured.

Did you hear the fights?
Covered by the jokes and shouts.
Or is it just another lie,
A tale, they whisper.

Does this life deserve our regrets?
This life we have, this life we have to forget.
Was this a time we shall remember?
A fixed point, shared and honoured.

Did it hurt when you heard?
When you heard those
War’s burning children cries.

From yesterday to tomorrow,
There was and will be
Good man willings.
From yesterday to tomorrow,
There was and will be
Blood spillings.
