Victims of a Down

This song was created for Game of Bands round 169 : "Emulate a Well-Known Band or Artist"

Lyrics:

Every one of us all is tainted by sin
And I always strive, I strive to be better
But my heart's weighted down. How can it be found
Innocent when it's weighed against a feather?

I've heard it be said if you've nothing to hide
Then you've nothing to fear. Why am I afraid?
If you saw who I am, who I really am
You'd all turn and run, and no one would stay

That's why it's so hard
That's why I just can't

Step out into the sun
Into it's judging stare
Feel it wash over me
And strip my secrets bare

And so I hide, I hide away in the dark
Where you'll never see my wounds and sins and scars
The dark is comfort, it accepts me as I am
But it keeps me from being a better man

My sins can't be faced
While still in dark's embrace

Step out into the sun
Into it's judging stare
Feel it wash over me
And strip my secrets bare

The dark is kind, and keeps me in its embrace
It hides the tears that are running down my face
It hides the thoughts that are running through my head
That if I show could have me end up dead

Step out into the sun
Into it's judging stare
Feel it wash over me
And strip my secrets bare
Strip my secrets bare

Step out into the light
Throw my head up to the sky
Fearless of what I'll find
To be me is not a crime
(x3)

Step out into the sun
Into it's judging stare
Feel it wash over me
And strip my secrets bare
[Exit]
