All That Remains Criticism And Self Realization

One by one, they stand single file

To see the king of the hill atop his worthless pile

The king has no clothes

Throw stones

Watch him implode

All for one or are we all alone

Brick by brick, it’s a house built on lies

Because illusion is easy to young adoring eyes

It’s not hard to see

Through deceit

Make them believe

Fight the stampede, be the one to lead

All my missteps, I retrace

Every failure, I’ll erase

My pride is gone

I find the strength to carry on

Looking back, what’s left of me

Am I the person that I wanna be

Do I belong

I find the strength to carry on

Rung by rung, he’s climbed up to the top

But once the engine is running, it’s hard to make it stop

Ignore what you’re told

Eyes closed

Dig from below

Don’t care where you’re from, just where you go

Step by step, we’re ignoring the signs

That cocky bastard is planting the seeds of his demise

There’s nothing to gain

Only shame

We fan the flames

Fight through the pain, live another day

Just one more day

All my missteps, I retrace

Every failure, I’ll erase

My pride is gone

I find the strength to carry on

Looking back, what’s left of me

Am I the person that I wanna be

Do I belong

Do I belong

Writing’s on the wall

That Cheshire smile says you don’t have the courage to take the fall

You’re not fooling anyone

You’re no one

All my missteps, I retrace

Every failure, I’ll erase

My pride is gone

I find the strength to carry on

Looking back, what’s left of me

Am I the person that I wanna be

Do I belong

Do I belong
