Funeral For A Friend Built To Last

Behind closed doors we are building up our castles

And we wait to be saved behind these sheltered walls

Tell me who will be left to save us

When we can’t even save ourselves

Eyes of the innocent

The death of human spirit

A science of tragedies that we’ve let into our homes

And I will never close my eyes to what I see every day

And even if it kills me

I will never end up like them

Tell me who will be left to save us

When we can’t even save ourselves

[x2]

A shell of a man

Bled of every sentiment

And all honesty and compassion

Destroyed in just one breath

[x2]

I will never close my eyes to what I see every day

And even if it kills me

I will never end up like them

Tell me who will be left to save us

When we can’t even save ourselves

[x2]

Funeral For A Friend Inequality

We put the power in the hands of the wealthy

Elitist thinking they know what’s best for us

Not knowing, not knowing right from wrong

Just taking and never giving back

[Chorus:]

They stole what we gave and feathered their own nests

So while we die, they multiply

The symptoms of bigger problems

A distraction of our new world order meltdown

Everybody thinks they’ve got the answers

When there’s only one

Dumbing down as the race begins to falter

New generations of a mindless order

[Chorus]

We run around like headless chickens

Blame each other, blame the others

[Chorus]

Funeral For A Friend Best Friends And Hospital Beds

Cold hard lines, across my face into

A mirror I don’t recognise myself anymore.

The deepest blacks, the

Empty grey’s there is no going back

There is no in-between.

How many friends can I loose

Before it all makes sense?

How many friends can I loose?

Who new loose what to say?

When I’m speaking out to quiet crowds

And at the back of the hall the eyes are silent.

Words mean nothing but empty

Providence, all for a God that

Doesn’t seem to care who lives

And who dies, there are no choices.

Each like a body broken struck

From the face of man.

How many friends can I loose

Before it all makes sense?

How many friends can I loose?

Who new loose what to say?

When I’m speaking out to quiet crowds

And at the back of the hall the eyes are silent.

Funeral For A Friend Juneau

Tied to the testing of wills, where my heart breaks and spills

Left to the sight of the sky, in your arms I’m defined

Thrown to the wolves in the minds of your enemies,

in the minds of your enemies

And I’m stone in the eyes of your foolishness

If this is what I’m meant for, no longer interesting

Fall forward to even the score

Just a thought to you

Tied to the testing of wills, where my heart breaks and spills

Left to the sight of the sky, in your arms I’m defined

Thrown to the wolves in the minds of your enemies,

in the minds of your enemies

And I’m stone in the eyes of your foolishness

And I’m nothing more than a line in your book

Yet I’m nothing more than a line in your book

Yet I’m nothing more than a line in your book

Yet I’m nothing more than a line in your book

In your book, in your book

If this is what I’m meant for, no longer interesting

Fall forward to even the score

Funeral For A Friend Moments Forever Faded

In the black and white, wounds all bound

Sitting at the table, biting nails all short

The consequence of adultery

As he rips you from your skin

We’re all paying for this and in your prayers

You believe, you believe

YOU BELIEVE, YOU BELIEVE (just for the first time)

YOU BELIEVE, YOU BELIEVE (just like the last time)

YOU BELIEVE, YOU BELIEVE (a seam away from breaking)

YOU BELIEVE, YOU BELIEVE (always forever)

Tasting you for the first time, just to breathe you in

Breaking you for the first time, bathed in sin

bathed in sin

YOU BELIEVE, YOU BELIEVE (just for the first time)

YOU BELIEVE, YOU BELIEVE (just like the last time)

YOU BELIEVE, YOU BELIEVE (a seam away from breaking)

YOU BELIEVE, YOU BELIEVE (always forever)

The embers will burn you

The embers will burn you

(Will burn you)

Will burn you, will burn you tonight

(Will burn you)

Will burn you, will burn you tonight

Moments forever faded, will burn you tonight

Moments forever faded, will burn you tonight

Moments forever faded, will burn you tonight

Moments forever faded, will burn you tonight

Funeral For A Friend Grey

A loss of feeling

Ending in contempt

I feel like I am letting go of everything

Friendships ending

Always in betrayal

You never gave us the benefit of the doubt

I saw you change throughout the years

I saw things begin to fall apart

Fuck your power games

Nothing gold can stay like this

forever it’s faded grey

Rusted like the dreams you hold so close

Was it ever even true or was it all

just a lie, you’re a

shadow of who you used to be.

Funeral For A Friend Broken Foundation

Waking up at three am, drowning in the haze

Of broken dreams and broken promises.

Scared of making a fucking difference,

Could you answer me, and tell me the truth.

Leaving this place so empty handed,

Beaten down, with a bad taste in my mouth.

Leaving this place so empty handed,

Beaten down, with a bad taste in my mouth.

Until it falls apart.

Broken foundation, buried underneath

And a smile to make the emptiness complete.

Puncture my ribs, like something more

With beaten bruised and drunken heart.

Waking up at three am, waking up at three am,

waking up to nothing.

Leaving this place so empty handed,

Beaten down, with a bad taste in my mouth.

Leaving this place so empty handed,

Beaten down, with a bad taste in my mouth.

Until it falls apart

Broken foundation, buried underneath

And a smile to make the emptiness complete.

Puncture my ribs, like something more.

With beaten bruised and drunken heart.

Coins across the floor, seasons burden me

And make the emptiness complete.

Broken foundation, buried underneath

And a smile to make the emptiness complete.

Puncture my ribs, like something more

With beaten bruised and drunken heart.

Broken foundation,

With beaten, bruised and drunken heart.

Broken foundation,

With beaten, bruised and drunken heart.

Funeral For A Friend Brother

Decades of aggression through this revolution of the mind

This hole in my heart I feel right now

I see the same things in you

[Chorus:]

Dear brother, my life is in your hands

Another open wound that we must defend

If I die in this place, take my words to them

This family in the light and tell them I love them

[Chorus]

Funeral For A Friend High Castles

I speak in metaphor it’s the only

thing that makes sense to me a

description of a time that I’ll never

feel again and hopeless romantics

they wont save me from pissing on

the friendships that have made me

In memory the brightest lights are

fading I’m on my knees waiting for the changes

Words are weapons, in this modern

warfare on a piece of paper or on a billboard.

It breaks the back it rapes the truth for another fucking

lie, the words are weapons in these crucial times.

I’m just trying to figure out if this

will kill me or make me stronger (every day).

Words are weapons they are our shields

Words are weapons, fist by fist.
