​Even The Blackest Heart Still Beats

This song is by Nations Afire and appears on the album The Ghosts We Will Become (2012).

Waking up drunk as the sea shouts harder
Trying to wake me up but there's nothing left to say
I said it all in a distant memory
Image of a son with an absent father
Who wouldn't believe it would take it's toll on me
The payback is never ending

If your mind's made up
Can it ever change?
A vicious circle
A halo around the head

Congratulations
It seems you've won again
Maybe this time you'll learn
It doesn't change a thing
If it's war you seek
Than seek no more than me
But even the blackest heart still beats

Starving for a place to conceal this murder
Driving just to stay awake with a broken radio
The voices come again to soothe me
Crashing in the rain of a wasted summer
Ever since the clouds derailed all my makeshift confidence
What a brief unhappy life

If your mind's made up
Can it ever change?
A vicious circle
A halo around the head

Congratulations
It seems you've won again
Maybe this time you'll learn
It doesn't change a thing
If it's war you seek
Than seek no more than me
But even the blackest heart still beats

I can handle life's discomforts
Confidence and all is understood
You're gonna grow old one day
So light the wick and burn the candle
Falling over
Catching flame to me
And everyone I've known to ashes

Congratulations
You fought and won today
Maybe this time you'll learn,
You're on your own

Congratulations
It seems you've won again
Maybe this time you'll learn
It doesn't change a thing
If it's war you seek
Than seek no more than me
But even the blackest heart still beats
(Even the blackest heart still beats)
Yeah, even the blackest heart still beats
