Alter Bridge – Silver Tongue Lyrics

Silver Tongue Lyrics – Alter Bridge

Sitting in my ivory tower
Invincible to fall
Some would say my final hour
As you scale the wall

Step inside
I dare you all
And breathe the lies
And heed the call

When this all is said and done
I will have my way
And you will take the blame

You’re over the line
Under the gun
I am the reason
For what you’ve done
Tooth of a crime
You can’t outrun
Under the spell of my silver tongue (Yeah)

I swear to God I’ll find a way
To prove I still belong
I’d rather watch it burn away
Than say that I was wrong

So step inside
I dare you all
And breathe my fire
And heed my call

You’re over the line
Under the gun
I am the reason
For what you’ve done
Tooth of a crime
You can’t outrun
Under the spell of my silver tongue

You’re over the line
Under the gun
I’ll keep on scheming
For what’s to come
Tooth of a crime
You can’t outrun
Under the spell of my silver tongue

This alliance built on fear and rage
Ends in violence if I have my way

Fear
Spite
Lie to divide us
Hate
Strife
Bring decay

You’re over the line
Under the gun
I am the reason
For what you’ve done
Tooth of a crime
You will not outrun
Now you’re under the spell of my tongue

You’re over the line
Under the gun
I am the reason
For what you’ve done
Tooth of a crime
You can’t outrun
Under the spell of my silver tongue
