Empty Promises
(Hess / Lesperance)

You screwed the system
I count the days
I'm watching your words unfolding
A little loser
That's got no place
Don't get your way
And your world stops turning

I'll be prying those words from your mouth
Cause I always think you're lying
Now your motives are always in doubt
So I don't hear you
When you tell me to be
Calm and relaxed
You're just a shooting star
That's destined for falling
Come and be saved
I would be alright
If I could live on empty promises
You're in one big sewer
You're something strange
If nothing I know
I've been learning of your unhuman nature
Cast iron skin
Build the fortress
So no one gets in

I'll be prying those words from your mouth
Cause I always think you're lying
Your motives are always in doubt
So I don't hear you
When you tell me to be

Chorus
