"Kingdom Of Cards" Lyrics

Bad Omens Lyrics


"Kingdom Of Cards"

Gave it all to burn forever underneath the rain
Drowning in the present of a past that I couldn’t change
Writing songs instead of letters because I’m too afraid
Afraid of coming back to find that everything is the same

I made my way through hell again, I paid for my mistakes
Next time I think I’ll stay awhile and pour myself a drink
When I return, I’ll look for you, so listen for your name
If you can make it out above the roaring of the flames

If it’s the mask you want, then it’s the mask that you will get
But when I take it off remember that you asked for this
I tore myself apart to give you all that I could give
Don’t think that I will let it go, don’t think that I’ll forget

I thought I wanted legacy, I thought I wanted fame
I didn’t know I’d lose all my loved ones in exchange
Left them all behind and yeah for that I am ashamed
But that’s the price I’m paying ’til I’m buried in my grave

Gave it all to burn forever underneath the rain
Drowning in the present of a past that I couldn’t change
Writing songs instead of letters because I’m too afraid
Afraid of coming back to find that everything is the same

I’ll do it all over again from the start
And this time you’re not leaving me in the dark
You took me for granted now look where you are
Atop of a kingdom you built out of cards

I thought I wanted legacy, I thought I wanted fame
I didn’t know I’d lose all my loved ones in exchange
Left them all behind and yeah for that I am ashamed
But that’s the price I’m paying ’til I’m buried in my grave

I’ll do it all over again from the start
And this time you’re not leaving me in the dark
You took me for granted now look where you are
Atop of a kingdom you built out of cards
