The Wreckers Lyrics

The breakers roar on an unseen shore
In the teeth of a hurricane
Oh we struggle in vain
A hellish night - a ghostly light
Appears through the driving rain
Salvation in a human chain

All I know is that sometimes you have to be wary
Of a mircale too good to be true
All I know is that sometimes the truth is contrary
Everything in life you thought you knew
All I know is that sometimes you have to be wary
'Cause sometimes the target is you

Driven aground, with that awful sound
Drowned by the cheer from ashore
Oh we wonder what for
The people swarm through the darkling storm
Gather everything they can score
'Til their backs won't bear any more

All I know is that sometimes you have to be wary
Of a mircale too good to be true
All I know is that sometimes the truth is contrary
Everything in life you thought you knew
All I know is that sometimes you have to be wary
'Cause sometimes the target is you

The breakers roar on an unseen shore
In the teeth of an icy grave
In the teeth of an icy grave
Oh the human chain leaves a bloody stain
Washed away in the pounding waves
Washed away in the pounding waves

All I know is that sometimes you have to be wary
Of a mircale too good to be true
All I know is that sometimes the truth is contrary
Everything in life you thought you knew
All I know is that sometimes you have to be wary
'Cause sometimes the target is you
All I know is that memory can be too much to carry
Striking down like a bolt from the blue
All I know is that sometimes the truth is contrary
Everything in life you thought you knew

All I know is that sometimes the truth is contrary
'Cause sometimes the target is you

If you read the book that goes along with the album Clockwork Angels, this is a very dark part of the book. And this song has a lot of good points, sometimes you have to worry about things being too good to be true.

It's both a sad and angry song where Neil is beating up on religion. Along the same vein as 'Faithless' from the last album. Great tune as usual, but Neil needs to quit whining. Sounds like a very angry and insecure person inside.
