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

What people say

"The t-shirt, signed photo and goldmember pass on keychain are great to start with! But there's more: you can download all those rare songs, live shows, songs of former bands, interviews, videos, you name it! The only thing you have to do is join! You only have to pay the $50 once, you'll never have to pay any cent more after that! So in short: it's the cheapest membership ever!"
