Lyrics: Gods Will Be Gods

How can you pretend
When there’s so much at stake
That it’s a different world
And your hands don’t shake

At the end of the room
And the foot of the bar
We knew that soon
We’d be making our mark

Why do you defend
The part you have to take
With your fingers on the world
Hoping your hands don’t shake

When you get the time
Why not think about
Connecting yours and mine
And turning in to out

Back to the bar
I was feeling it
The hole in the floor
Was where I would sit

Positions will be lost
And things will fall in place
The falling will not stop
Till we have found our face

Oh will you mention
My name to one
Oh will you mention
My name to me

Gods will be gods
But my lord forgot
I was made out of skin
Bones will be bones
But when I came home
There was no one in

So where were you staying
While I was out playing
Was nobody laying the foundation
The fulfilling of our killing

How can you pretend
That there’s so much at stake
And it’s a different world
And everything shakes

I am the unknown
You’re the after taste
I am total love
I am total hate

We won’t mind
Of us
We will…
