August Burns Red - Martyr Lyrics

Demand what you will never deserve Respect is gained by trust shown and earned Don’t mask your pride with humility While forcing others to keep proving their loyalty

You’ve been a hypocrite for years Drawing swords as much as you draw their tears Demand what you will never deserve Respect is gained by trust shown and earned

You build your strength off of your anger Fighting a selfish battle with no answer Your transparency has started showing Don’t let fear guide you where you are going

You would die for everyone else But you won’t live for yourself

Do you mean what you say? Do you say what you mean Or will you find another lie Another lie to hide behind? Keep speaking to the world about What you can’t forget You can’t forget all the things you hold onto Refusing to forgive those that hurt you

You’re taking steps on a fine line So you don’t have to choose a side Good deeds are not recognized When the heart’s intent is full of pride

You’re taking steps on a fine line So you don’t have to choose a side Good deeds are not recognized When the heart’s intent is full of pride One day we hope you stop holding it on all in And learn to let go and forgive (Forgive)
