Oh that's me the heirophant Here to reign in the ways you want All this control don't come for free There are worms neath the dirt but you don't want to see Oh ya that's me oh ya that's me Wisdom to each in apportion to his want If you don't want to undertstand the way things got to be Why would I force you to see the light Want to walk the path without seeing what's next Take my hand I'll be your guide Oh that's me the heirophant Here to reign in the ways you want All this control don't come for free There are worms neath the dirt but you don't want to see Oh ya that's me oh ya that's me Scared to get cut on the glass but it's only glitter If you ever want to know the answers all you have to do is ask But they ain't here to please your sense Beauty lies in complexity If you're not up for the challenge Go on join the line Please feel free Oh that's me the heirophant Here to reign in the ways you want All this control don't come for free There are worms neath the dirt but you don't want to see Oh ya that's me oh ya that's me Why would I try to keep you scared and alone When you do it so well on your own Keep you crying saying you can never win And it ain't hard to teach but it's hard to learn How to keep your sight while the world it burns And the breaks it takes to orchestrate it all The saint is just the next one to fall

Those weren't bridges that I burned Must be blind if you haven't learned We all like play with fire Now the chains no longer rattle Heat gonna make the glass shatter Those weren't bridges those weren't bridges That I burned Through the smoke it's hard to see And you're choking on the piece of me You thought would finally help you clean your plate Won't give me what I need Break every promise you ever made to me I'll grant your freedom At the going rate Those weren't bridges that I burned Must be blind if you haven't learned We all like play with fire Now the chains no longer rattle Heat gonna make the glass shatter Those weren't bridges those weren't bridges That I burned Tell me what you've heard Love to see how the vine twists the words To justify the hurt you put on me I ain't here to hear your please Once loose the tide cannot recede I didn't start it but I ain't gonna let it be Those weren't bridges that I burned Must be blind if you haven't learned We all like play with fire Now the chains no longer rattle Heat gonna make the glass shatter Those weren't bridges those weren't bridges That I burned I'm not doing this for attention If i had don't you think retention would be higher on my list of priorities And I can without your touch What you took from me never be enough To put out the fire roaring inside of me Those weren't bridges that I burned Must be blind if you haven't learned We all like play with fire Now the chains no longer rattle Heat gonna make the glass shatter Those weren't bridges those weren't bridges That I burned Those weren't bridges those weren't bridges That I burned

Say you want a revolution Are you doing what you can If you're willing and able Why your lines getting lost in the sand You say you want a revolution But only far as you want to go And all that is is what got us here The need to keep control And you say you want a revolution You say you want a revolution You say you want a revolution But I don't think you really know And you can scream for days from the ramparts The wind can take your blows You can take the distance harden your heart You won't see the damage till it's bought and sold You can scream for days from the ramparts While the world is bought and sold And we'll be down here working on growing love When you start to look for more And you say you want a revolution You say you want a revolution You say you want a revolution But I don't think you really know And you say you want a revolution You say you want a revolution You say you want a revolution But I don't think you really know No I don't think you really know

Don't want a champion Rather have a lover With a heart that's open When it tells me that it's true Don't need a rescue Just need some cover Another butterfly on the battlefield trying to get through All quiet on the western front all still and silent night All eyes on me waiting to count the wrong from the right It's everyone seems to know Which armory I should go But all munitions kept hidden from my sight Don't want a champion Rather have a lover With a heart that's open When it tells me that it's true Don't need a rescue Just need some cover Another butterfly on the battlefield trying to get through Will rebellion always fold to what you're not trying to bend to Impetus to try to live today to want what tomorrow brings Like a giant dome of consciousness Wondering how you maintain all this Don't it get exhausting on the edge of your seat Waiting to see what choice will be Don't want a champion Rather have a lover With a heart that's open When it tells me that it's true Don't need a rescue Just need some cover Another butterfly on the battlefield trying to get through Wouldn't bring my gun if I didn't want this fight Our hearts weren't put here to hide away in the cold dark night Put myself into this fire though I'm afraid to move Lightning destroys everything I touch And I'm fraid of touching you Don't want a champion Rather have a lover And a heart that's open When it tells me that it's true Don't need a rescue Just need some cover Another butterfly on the battlefield trying to get through
