A Vessel Of Times Past

This song is by The Paramedic and appears on the album The Devil In Me (2011).

Calling all soldiers
This is a call
(To arm yourselves)
Sever all your ties
And become the hero
They all know you are
(You'll earn your scars)
Tell me what's worse?
Losing myself to this
Or losing you, baby.

These sleepless nights
Spent in cold remorse
Lead me, back to your embrace
(Oh so unwillingly)
I'm left with only
The memories
That were too few
And far between

And now the soldier fights
And now the soldier dreams

Oh sweet desolation
Look and see what you've
Done to me
Oh sweet desolation
Kiss me, kill me
Set me free.

And I've lost sight
Through my own hesitation
I've told the world
Who's to blame
And it's you.
No matter what you say
You're not the same
You'll never own up to your faults
(Your greed will be your downfall)

Oh sweet desolation
Look and see what you've
Done to me
Oh sweet desolation
Kiss me, Kill me
Set me free

Stand tall and take your aim (Hold)
Thy soldiers will, be done (Fast)
Our war is not the same (Your guns)
This battle can't be won

You seem to think
That every word that you've spoken to me
I felt was true
You'll soon learn I won't
Forgive and forget you

Baby,
You told me
I was your soldier (Soldier, Soldier)
But all the lies
You made me believe,
Now I see your deception.
I thought I could be
Your knight in shining armor
You pulled the trigger
(I held it down)
My life was in your hands

Welcome to eternity
