Tied down against the tracks
Screamin' in silent black and white
You trust us
We are such villains
We will tell ourselves anything we want to hear
If we are willin'
To listen is to learn
And too much is what we deserve
And how come when we say that we do, we don't
Can pray to anybody you want, we won't

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

But if were the ones to blame then the fruit
It shouldn't taste so good
We were used
To think we got nothing to lose
We're losin' everything but the truth
'Cause walkin' straight into a road block, bendin'
Left, it ended
Your point of view is chosen by the serpent's rules

With all its do's and don'ts
The future's an empty promise
I'm concerned and so tired of waitin'
But we could sell it wooden horses full of nightmares
And when they open
This all might be composed
There's no goin' back to the good old days
It's just a favoring and some new light
Archaism is a dusty road leadin' us back to nowhere

If we're the ones to blame then the fruit
It shouldn't taste so good
We were used
To think we got nothing to lose
We're losin' everything but the truth
'Cause walkin' straight into a road block, endin'
Left, it bended
Your point of view is chosen by the serpent's rules

Oh oh oh oh

How come when we say we do, we don't
How come when we say we will, we won't
How come when we say we do, we don't
How come when we say we will, we won't
