A House For Lions - Peace and War Lyrics


A House For Lions – Peace and War Lyrics

A painted fool waits on the floor
For the keepers of pretend to call him in
(Or i did i end up singing: to be called up by the keepers of pretend?)
Each night asking for his chance
To retrieve the life he’s offered up to them

Lords above
Am i your song?
O!

He give a bite to one and all
A banquet for the cosmopolitan
Thought it seems an errant call
In his fever dreams he’s cursed, he’s the forgiven
Sees with the eyes of the reflection in the mirror
Knows the truth: that all is void, still there’s an army at your back
What could real life offer him

Lords above
I am your song
O my love

O since we first touched I’ve wanted more
I am your song of peace, your song of war
I dare to scream your name from every shore
I long to scream my name from every shore
