Lyrics
you break the man
leave his shell on the ground
what have you done
with your own life, your world

shared everything I've been
speak every thing I've seen
so kill your jealousy
and what you believe

you canít destroy them
the beauty and the youth
you'll never beat them
you'll never hide the truth

I lay down
with the beasts on the ground
where prophets cry
in every tear a prayer, forever

shared everything I've been
speak everything I've seen
so kill your jealousy
and what you still believe

you canít destroy them
the beauty and the youth
you'll never beat them
you'll never hide the truth

destroy destroy
destroy it all
what I don't understand
why you destroy everything
so beautiful in your hand

hate strips it away
the essence of a man
we'll weave a golden noose
and hang you from the stars

hey now
you can make this right
lightning and the fight
the power and the glory
