A Subtle Dagger

This song is by Thrice and appears on the album The Illusion Of Safety (2002).

It infiltrates,
It feigns at love,
Betrays our trust
In what we've known,
Since we were born.
The truth we've found in all we see

Points to design,
Still our chests swell,
We'll never find
True answers from a wishing well.

So feed us all
Another lie,
To still our thoughts,
Appease our pride,
So we won't have
To change the way we see, we live, we love, we die,

Our lust precede
Our blasphemy,
Our logic reads
Like notes from tainted autopsy.

(Solo by Teppei)

Our souls they speak of something more,
But we can't look beyond ourselves.
We implore empty skies because
Our hearts hold room for no one else,

We extend our
Claws to grasp at shadows of the
Ideals we have,
Lost casualties of a subtle dagger,
Buried to the
Hilt in our hearts, blood on our hands.
