Coheed and Cambria – Ladders Of Supremacy Lyrics

Ladders Of Supremacy Lyrics – Coheed and Cambria

Oh, we’ve only got one chance at this
The severity unmerciful, as the tension sits
As the world comes into view
Our biggest fears they seem to all come true

So how we gonna handle this?
When the punch lands, boy, it’s all about your fall
Go on swallow your defeat

Stay!
Down, boy! See ya got clowned boy
You got heart but sorry just ain’t meant to be
Another one down the Ladders of Supremacy

The time has come for us
Accept all you’ve become
All your chances burned to ash
The end’s begun
Here we watch as time moves on
Away from all the things we could have done

So how we gonna handle this?
When the punch lands, boy, it’s all about how you fall
Go on swallow your defeat

Stay!
Down, boy! See ya got clowned, boy
You got heart, but sorry, just ain’t meant to be
Another one down the Ladders of Supremacy

Evil does as evil do
All you want they took… from you
So, that’s how it goes
Because who you are
Take a look
You knew you never had a chance
You never had a chance to be loved

No matter how hard you want to play
You’ll always have one foot in the grave
You just want to live, but you were born to lose, to lose
Now get up from the gravel
And dust off your shoulders
Because, now it’s your chance to prove

Climbing up the ladders of their supremacy
Was it everything you had dreamed?
Did you make your mark?
Or did you let them stand between?
Between you and everything
