Oh, Sleeper – Mutinous Lyrics

Mutinous Lyrics by Oh, Sleeper


Oh my God, we seem to have gone off course
We let the current drag us down too far
We tried to live amongst the broken hearts
But lived alone and finally broken ours

We set a course for a new shore, saw everything we hoped for
We sweat and bled just to dream of the next war
Where did we let loose our reverie?
And when’d the captain fall asleep?

We made a monster of Him, deserter of you
An impostor of me, b------ of our dreams
How did we drift so far out to sea?
And why’d we ever take the wheel?
Now we’re screaming

Oh my God, we seem to have gone off course
We let the current drag us down too far
We tried to live amongst the broken hearts
We lived alone and finally broken ours

There in the distance, I can see shimmering faces
Beautiful liars say that royal is perfect
You can see their flaws until you forget the verses
A mask can hide only what’s on the surface
Where did we go wrong?

We made a monster of Him, deserter of you
An impostor of me, b------ of our dreams
How did we drift so far out to sea?
And why’d we ever take the wheel?

Finally I’ve got a place to call my own
I’d rather die than to give up control
No one’s voice here is louder
Or head here is taller
Or vision is brighter than my own
Finally I’ve got a place to call my own
I’d rather die than to give up control
No one’s voice here is louder
Or head here is taller
Or vision is brighter than my own
I’d rather die than to give up control
I’d rather die than to give up control
I’d rather die than to give up control
Why the hell did we ever take the wheel?

Oh my God, we seem to have gone off course
We let the current drag us down too far
We tried to live amongst the broken hearts
We lived alone and finally broken ours
