lyrics

The devil takes no hostages
And God won't force your hand
You've been waiting for forever for a sign that you were meant
For something great, don't hesitate
Translate the truth to your heart from your head
Don't believe the lies

Your Mother didn't want you
At least that's what you thought
Your Father couldn't love you
He saw himself in what he brought
Into the world by a pretty girl
With green eyes and siren song
And he's paid for it ever since

If I could trade you places
I would take your pain away
I'd Burn in hell
I might as well lose myself that way
A prophet has no honour
In the town from which he came
Trading truths won't change your views
There's nothing I can say

The devil takes no hostages
And God won't force your hand
If you're sitting on the fence, this is where you're like to stand
Till something true gets hold of you
There's no hope of promised land
And the road stretches out for miles
The girl of your dreams
Haunted them by night
Sharing your bed with the ghost of regret
Sleep walking in black and white
You pray for the sun for the morning to come
With dimmed eyes and weakened love
You're not sure that you can go on

If I could trade you places
I would take your pain away
I'd Burn in hell
I might as well lose myself that way
A prophet has no honour
With the friends that he has made
Trading truths won't change your views
There's nothing I can say

If I could trade you places
I would take your pain away
I'd Burn in hell
I might as well lose myself that way
A prophet has no honour
In the town from which he came
Trading truths won't change your views
There's nothing I can say
