lyrics

Silver Spoon, Golden Cage

the faint taste of iron

A leading man born and raised
love and admired

Though your halo softens the blow
I couldn't help but notice
That you're not feeling so well no more
or do you darling?

It always
Yeah it always

It always hits you when you're beaten anyway
second guesses are the poor man's fall from grace
and although it's hard you must have felt, and known it all along
That there are better ones, than you

Take the leap, cut them wires
from the life that holds you
see it flash right before your eyes
in a way that no one told you
Do you now feel ashamed do you really?
Do you still feel safe, do you really?


It always
Yeah it always


It always hits you when you're beaten anyway
second guesses are the poor man's fall from grace
and although it's hard you must have felt, and known it all along
That even you're second, to someone


When you were just a little kid
your mama taught you to be good
to work hard and to do right and to
pray like everyone should


but soon you learned
what you feared most, that you ain't nothing but a ghost
you put your theory to the test
and learned that you were just like all the rest
