Oh, Sleeper Lyrics


"Of Bane & Disease"

I think it’s time that for once
I’m gonna give them what they want
Peel back and let lap the dogs at the fat
Yeah for once
It’s time to step out in the sun
A decade in shadow
I’m shield shed and carving my own

I’m shield shed and carving my own

If I am in honesty, you say to judge me
Is condemning one’s self through hypocrisy
Then, oh, what a defeat, the way your world beats
Spiders play the bane, flies spread the disease

I alone
Running back to the line we left
How could you leave
I’ll fly my own crest
(Don’t turn we need you!)

I alone in the scar-crossed armor
Running back to the line we left
How could you leave so far from over
I’ll fly my own crest

You want to know the real me? You want to see me?
Then just know that when turn your head
At my broken mess, be it judgement or jest
It’s the same damn thing, don’t you ever forget

Don’t you forget

I think it’s time that for once
It’s time you step up to the front
Take the rudder by the wheel
Steer us into the sun
Yea for once
I can’t lead us through the storm
A decade of battle
I’m too strained to stand on my own

I’m too strained to stand on my own

I alone in the scar-crossed armor
Running back to the line we left
How could you leave so far from over
I’ll fly my own crest
I alone in the scar-crossed armor
Running back to the line we left
I’d never leave so far from over
I’ll fly my own crest

Don’t turn they need you!

A lifetime on the frontline
An honest banner in the divide
Never knowing why I’m always behind

Spiders play the bane, flies spread the disease

I alone in the scar-crossed armor
Running back to the line we left
How could you leave so far from over
Go fly your own crest
I alone in the scar-crossed armor
Running back to the line we left
I’d never leave so far from over
I’ll fly my own crest

You want to know the real me? You want to see me?
Then just know that when you turn your head
At my broken mess, be it judgement or jest
It’s the same damn thing, don’t you ever forget

Cause I’m in honesty, you say to judge me
Is condemning one’s self through hypocrisy
Then, oh, what a defeat, the way your world beats
Spiders play the bane, flies spread the disease
