This is the first single off of our debut EP Ignis Fatuus.

This song is about when you think you know someone but everything about them is a lie. Now that you see the truth you can move on.


Blind from the lies you spit.

You can't say that it's better this way.
I waited so long just for this to fade.
And now you're really fighting to breath.
Your poison is killing me.
This could be the end.

Blind from the lies you spit.
You can't stay bitter when you're the one that quit.
Looking back I'm so relieved, things are starting to look up for me I want you to know.
I'm not falling for your show.

You're the one that started this, now I see your composure start to slip. The curtains are coming down.
Make sure you stand your ground (x2)

Turn your back
There is no easy way out
Speak from your heart
Don't live just for yourself
We'll keep moving forward
A False Idol with nothing to show

We've been through so much in this past year.
Shed our own blood, and wiped our tears.
These words spill from my heart
But this is only just the start

You speak in your tongue, it never meant anything to me.
You twist all your words, in hopes for apathy.
Gotta find a way, gotta find a way to carry all this weight.
Funny how I saw, funny I saw your facade start to break.

Blind from the lies you spit. (x2)

You can't stay bitter when you're the one who quit, looking back I'm so relieved. Things are starting to look up for me. I want you to know. I'm not falling for your show
