Wallflower – Blood and Stone Lyrics

Blood and Stone By Wallflower

Pray forgiveness, bury all the hatchets.
Just hope our father gets some sleep at night.
Light your candles, throw away the matches.
Your saint’s a statue but it never sees the light.

Blood and stone.

Everything you wanted? Move on.
Something that you needed? Long gone.

Phoned in, amateur dramatics.
So much to see through, you still read your lines.
Resentment digs in and it scratches.
Does it still help you when you see past the lies?

Everything you wanted? Move on.
Something that you needed? Long gone.

You sit and you stare at a map and you declare, you’d be happy ruling there. But your kingdom weeps, it’s monochrome. So you colour in the grey, but the colours fade away. What’s gold without a throne?
Blood and stone.

Everything you wanted? Move on.
Something that you needed? Long gone.
