lyrics

Highest Order

Verse 1:
Won’t you free me, at the top of the hill
Everyone knows the score, knows it’s only gonna
Get worse until we’re back in the game
Turn around let me see your face
I’m a man, you’re a girl, what’s the point in it all
Throw away, steal away, what’s the word I can’t find?
Loosen tongue, straighten tie, let the feeling all out
Shame the one who says, come back now.

Verse 2:
Now I see, now I know, you were meant to last it.
Everyone, knows the deal, Sees her turning the wheel
Stepping back, making sure, I’m still breathing here.
What to do, I’m all outta words
No that’s a lie, I could just, go right on forever
Pick away, clear away, until there’s nothing left of me
Break the score, show some faith, in the one who taught you
Shame the one who says, turn around

CHORUS:
Lesson unto defeat, Lesson unto deceit
Everybody just tows the line
Listen into the soul, listen into the hole
Everybody just tows the line

Verse 3:
New born, new sworn, we walk down the path
I've done this, right before I died
Highest order, doesn't match, with these controls
Shame the one who says, this is a game

CHORUS:
Lesson unto defeat, Lesson unto deceit
Everybody just tows the line
Listen into the soul, listen into the hole
Everybody just tows the line
