colours & crowns lyrics – turning the tides

turn around
take a look in the mirror
tell me, what have you become?
just another face to blend
in with the others
don’t trap yourself in this sh*ll
made of plastic and gold
there is not a seat beside your throne.

you won’t tear us apart.
we won’t take this to heart.
you won’t tear us apart.
we won’t take this to heart.

i thought you learned your lesson by now
but you’re just like the others
this time i’ll show you that your mistakes
will come back to haunt you.

times will change for the better
we’re all searching for shelter
i watched my home burn down in flames
i saw my memories turning to ashes
down in flames.

you won’t tear us apart.
we won’t take this to heart.
you won’t tear us apart.
we won’t take this to heart.

if you’re listening, take this to mind.
i’m not your servant or slave.

i miss the home that i used to know
now everything is a pale shade of grey
but i know that in time, things will change
and colours will come to life again.

times will change for the better
we’re all searching for shelter
i watched my home burn down in flames
i saw my memories turning to ashes.
