Compromise
I can't compromise
The fear is real
No use telling lies

I've seen the strings
Of this puppet life
Only way loose
Is a sharp knife

Cuts so thin
Against a thickened skin
Just a poor excuse
Where I begin

An untold story
Bereft of glory
A hardened hand
Holding foreign sand
A lie so pure
The only cure
Is naked truth
But where's the proof?

Your sin don't care
About your sorrow
Today don't know
About tomorrow

Your pain don't care
How much you borrow
But it counts your debt
Measured by regret

I can't compromise
I ain't satisfied
No use spreading lies

I've been the things
People wanna see
I've said the words
Others choose to leave

Eyes so blind
Make an open mind
Form a poor excuse
No-one can find

An untold story
Bereft of glory
A hardened hand
Holding foreign sand
A lie so pure
The only cure
Is naked truth
But where's the proof?
