Monuments – Arch Essence Lyrics

Arch Essence by Monuments

Lost in the depths of my disguise, holding these secrets so close
Toss and turn in this bed of lies, waiting for time to expose

What will it take to make you a believer?
How do I face myself through this eclipse?
Casting my spells, I become your deceiver
Wishing for death as the words leave my lips

I’ll hide away
Faced with myself again
What am I worth?

Now wallow with me, let my failures seduce you
And if I succeed, it’s because I have fooled you
A thousand roses cut by a single thorn
My spirit broken, never to be reborn

I’ll hide away
Faced with myself again
What am I worth?
Lies set ablaze
Struggling to pretend
What am I worth?
What am I worth?

Tell me why I’m not worthy
Why I’m not meant to believe
Never show any mercy
Spare me from any reprieve

Now I can see I’m falling away from my soul
And all that’s in me
Put your best foot forward, no impression
Writhing in sleep
You’re fucking your brain to a pulp, man
All that’s in me is all I can see anymore

Lies bend, broken

Stuck in a loop, running from truth, all of my confidence gone
Living a ruse, I am accused, searching for where I belong
Full of regret, dripping with sweat, singing my fraudulent songs
Dead in the nest, cards to my chest, solemnly, I carry on

I’ll hideaway
Faced with myself again
What am I worth?
Lies set ablaze
Struggling to pretend
What am I worth?
What am I worth?
What am I worth?

What am I worth?
