​House Of Cards

This song is by A Well Thought Tragedy and appears on the album The Persona (2007).

Now you can't see the forest through all the trees we planted over the years
If I have to I will suffocate myself just to feel alive
I'll never win, but at least I can say I tried
Is this the way we had imagined things all those years ago? When we were young and pure things were different
We had a dream
What happened? Life
Human nature
Instinct
Survival
We will never find a cure for hopelessness
We will never cease to be the animals that we are
Cycles repeat
And this one seems to be nothing short of a paradox
We've built this structure on a foundation of bloodshed and war
Just the same tessellating patterns year after year
The heartbeats become breathtaking
A warmers winters breaking
And summer bleeds into September
As these seasons turn, I watch you in the brimstone
I have become the overseer
But I will not be there to watch your house of cards collapse upon you
Now you can't see the forest through all the trees we planted over the years
If I have to I will suffocate myself just to feel alive
I'll never win, but at least I can say I tried
