Mushroomhead – 11th Hour


Waiting on the call one day
Waiting to be led astray
Waiting for the promise, for the dream to come true
(Like sheep to the shepherd)
Waiting to believe the claims
Waiting but it’s all the same
Waiting for a signal, for a sign to come through
(Outcast like the lepers)
All alone
On the edge of losing hope
Exactly where they want you

Don’t pledge your life, don’t hold your breath
Don’t sacrifice it all until there’s nothing left
Sacrifice

Waiting for the rain to cleanse
Praying that this pain will end
Thanks for nothing, I knew I could count on you
(Inconsequential)
As another nightmare ends
Brave enough to dream again
Believe in something that might not come true
([?])
Why hold on
When the cost of letting go
Is less than blind devotion?
([?])

Don’t pledge your life, don’t hold your breath
Don’t sacrifice it all until there’s nothing left
Sacrifice
Sacrifice
Sacrifice
Until there’s nothing left at all

Don’t sacrifice it all

Unfulfilled prophecies rust
Another cold reader to bleed us

(Unfulfilled) prophecies rust
Envy, greed, pride, and lust
Where do you place your trust?
So believe what you must
(Unfulfilled) prophecies rust
Envy, greed, pride, and lust
Where do you place your trust?
So believe what you must

Can’t sit still
How can you fill a void that will not heal
A gaping wound that cannot be sealed
As you feel the sting of shame and guilt

Can’t sit still
How can you fill a void that will not heal
A gaping wound that cannot be sealed
As you feel the sting of shame and guilt
