Eidola
Forgotten Tongues
[Verse 1: Andrew Wells, Matthew Dommer, both]
And I've lost my way trying to believe I'm okay
Living with the guilt of every mistake I've made
I saw you weep
Gave you all my blood
Watched it leave my veins
Cascading crimson life (cascading crimson life)
I counted every time the light inside your eyes went dark
Seeking a matriarch
To redeem me

[Chorus: Andrew Wells]
Come make me into something new
A depiction of broader view
Come break me down
And build me up like energy

[Verse 2: Andrew Wells, Matthew Dommer, both]
I gave you all my bones
Watched you build a throne
Only to be torn down (only to be torn down)
And I counted every lie
Balanced every time I tried to bargain with my own life
To believe I am worth anything

[Chorus: Andrew Wells]
Come make me into something new
A depiction of broader view
Come break me down
And build me up like energy

[Bridge: Matthew Dommer, Andrew Wells]
Why do I even try to fight?
It all turns out the same
Pulling punches in the rain
To keep you here
Do you believe me now?
If I bare my soul?
Or will you cast me out?
If I lose control?

[Interlude: Mario Savio, Sproul Hall, "Bodies Upon The Gears", December 2, 1964]
And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears, and upon the wheels, upon the levers upon all the apparatus. And you’ve got to make it stop. And you've got to indicate to the people who run it to the people who own it, that unless you’re free the machine will be prevented from working at all
[Outro: Matthew Dommer, Andrew Wells]
What a desolate view
Definition and truth
Like sand through an hour gla**
A candle held blindly turns night into day
In whispers you'll hear them say
So give me all
You can give
Stay standing still
Life just isn't long enough to wait for you
Don't make the same mistakes
A heart without a place
I am my own saving grace (wait for you)
Don't make the same mistakes
My mind cannot erase
I am my own saving grace
