You will never know the sorrow you made
When you first began to fall
You will never fail to lift your hands
to the easiest god of all.
Sometimes in life you’ve gotta tough it out
So wipe up all your tears
It takes a real man to burn down the house
To cover up his fears
No matter how many bones you break
No matter how many lives you take
You lost a thousand leagues ago
(On Second Time: I fought a thousand leagues to show)
But you will never know
Master Mister Won’t you Please
Stop hurting people in my dreams?
I witnessed every drop but your eyes told me
They’re things you’ll never see
You always thought you were a victim
The truth is, you were right.
It’s sad you never had a chance
To feel the love you stole that night
Bridge: Honor your father and Father
Honor your father and father?
Honor your father and fathers
Wipe up all your tears.
I know I’ll never hear the words
I know you’d mean them if you tried
I know what slips between the cracks when you apologize.
I know the night is soon
When fight or flight you’ll be removed
I know the leagues that told you so
You will never know.
