RISE AGAINST


Drones Lyrics

Deep inside these burning buildings
Voices die to be heard
Years we spent teaching a lesson
We ourselves had never learned

And if strength is borne from heartbreak
Many mountains I could move
And if walls could speak I'd pray
That they would tell me what to do

If you see me, please just walk on by, walk on by
Forget my name and I'll forget it too
Failed attempts at living simple lives, simple lives
(Simple lives)
Always keep me coming back to you

No signs of life here, save the embers, the occasional flame
We'd know the way but can't remember, conception to the grave
Shout confessions from the greatest heights, where no one can hear
All my fears, my insecurities are falling like tears

If you see me, please just walk on by, walk on by
Forget my name and I'll forget it too
Failed attempts at living simple lives, simple lives
(Simple lives)
Always keep me coming back to you

The drones all slave away, they're working overtime
They serve a faceless queen, they never question why
Disciples of a god, they neither live nor breathe
But we have bills to pay, yeah, we have mouths to feed
I won't come back

And if you see me, please just walk on by, walk on by
Forget my name and I'll forget it too
Failed attempts at living simple lives, simple lives
(Simple lives)
Always keep me coming back to you, I'm coming back to you

Amazing song but am disapointed that this site got the lyrics wrong in the third verse. Intentional? Because it's clearly wrong.

This song is so lyrically genius. Its my 7th favorite by them before it are prayers of a refugee,the good left undone,ready to fall,like the angel,give it all,and life less frightening
