No True Victory

from by Buried Cities

lyrics

Sun went down
Too slow tonight
To let the moon shine in

Still
I walked
On
All throughout the night

And I
Will hold
This blinding light as it glows
But if it fades
And retreats
Can I beat my greatest enemy

Once
I found
What
It was
I was looking
For
I swore
To
Never let it go and

In this moment
I felt relief
But knew it wouldn't last
Fell victim to
Signs of grief
As the moment passed

And so
Unfolds
It's been hiding all along

In a place
Unseen
On a road that leads to no true victory

So I
Will go
Down this winding road alone
And I will take
With me
Nothing but my broken memory

Words unspoke
I silently made it through the night alone
My fate unknown

Bonds unbroke
Slipping into distant misery
And left to fight it on my own
