Lyrics
[Verse 1]
Open-eyed oversight led me to here
Looking for an avenue to simply appear
One too many steps into the wrong direction
Leading me to throw up my hands
[Pre-Chorus]
Soon, I'll know exactly where I stand
Found in a flood of incendiary plans
Oh, I've been falling fast into the rhythms without rhymes
I won't be giving up again
Yeah, I'll be getting up again

[Chorus]
I heard a voice; it said: "e dolor e magna gloria
Bring me your heart, and then you will awake
In a state of surprising euphoria
But don't tell anyone"

[Verse 2]
I wasn't wrong to fend their ambiguity
Then I learned to turn emotions into weaponry
One too many words said with the wrong inflection
Leading me to throw up my hands
[Pre-Chorus]
Am I giving up the ghost again;
Surrendering, so that my evils will amend?
Oh, I've been falling fast into the s***e between the lines
But I'll be getting up again
I won't be giving up again

[Chorus]
I heard a voice; it said: "e dolor e magna gloria
Bring me your heart, and then you will awake
In a state of surprising euphoria
But don't tell anyone what you saw here"

[Bridge]
Now, I've never heard that sound before
I am nothing but an infant wave stuck in a savage ocean
[Pre-Chorus]
Soon, I'll know exactly where I stand
Found in a flood of incendiary plans
Oh, I've been falling fast into the s***e between the lines
But I'll be getting up again
I won't be giving up again

[Chorus]
I heard a voice; it said: "e dolor e magna gloria
Bring me your heart, and then you will awake
In a state of surprising euphoria
Don't fear the words that I say"

I heard a voice; it said "e dolor e magna gloria
Bring me your heart, and then you will awake
In a state of surprising euphoria
But don't tell anyone what you saw here"
