about

From "None The Worse For Wear" (2012)

lyrics

Your savior isn't coming!
He isn't riding a white horse.
He cannot stop this ship from sinking,
Your savior cannot change the course.
If it's darkness that you're looking for,
It's darkness that you're always gonna find.
Whether you hide yourself in shadows or you stare into the sun
You will go blind.

Your savior isn't coming!
He cannot break your iron chains.
He cannot stop this plague from spreading,
He can't revive your cold remains.
All your wishing and your waiting, well,
I haven't seen it fix a goddamn thing.
Talking loud and doing nothing's left you poor
And kept your tormentor a king.

But it's not all lost,
No, it's not all lost.
'Cause you got eyes and you got toes
And you got hands and a heart that glows
And a mind sharp as a tack
And ideas, they never lack
But you gotta pull your body out
Out of terror, out of doubt
'Cause you got a power all your own
In the marrow of your bones
You got a power all your own
You got a power all your own

Your savior isn't coming!
I guess you'll have to save yourself.
