"This Beautiful Life" lyrics - THE DEAR HUNTER

"This Beautiful Life"

One foot, then the other
Such embarrassment, it wasn't meant that
I, I should discover such offensive things
This suffering sends hope to the ground
But I really never had enough
They've got pride in him
This tide turns lives over

A black tongue prophecy, adorned in stony skin
We never ever (never ever) ever had to lie to move ahead
But here in oblivion, we cling to what we can
So in the end (in the end) we can say that with these hands
We took it all back, it all back

So let us force a smile and pretend that we're alive
Oh, but somewhere, none of this happened
The bullets removed themselves; life is beautiful
I have a home above the lake where I could

Forget the words to the songs that we've heard
The passages read, all the names in a world
That have brought us this pain, from the wounds we've sustained
A cold calloused heart, sitting still in this cave of a chest
So abandon a life from before
A boy and his innocence
