John I am lost
I want to see grace
The enemy's right at the gates
Suspicions and doubt will arise
You said, and I
Hoped I'd survive in this case

John I have faith
In the feeling of faith
It's just symptoms of truth
I can't shake

A catastrophe
A plague of me
Manning the barricades

They sold me

Follow the sign of a man
Who saw a man
Said follow this man
And I tried to see the man

You said watch, in time
They'll all pay the price
Watch, in time
We'll make them pay the price

Mr. Birch I was caught
Between visions and loss
Couldn't seem to tell
Which was tops
Then I survived on mistakes
Under cover of grays
And as you said I'm too late to be save

Mr. Birch let's be frank
It's a carnival state
It's not your glory you feel ache
Not a cause of alarm
Or a call to arms
It's just the sound of you swallowed by fate

Follow the sign of a man
Who saw a man
Said follow the man
But I just saw a man

Porcelain figures
Filling holes already paved
They hope a bigger figure
Will lift the lie a better way
Sand along a river
Pushing against the wave

I saw the light
I feel alright
