Scrutiny

Lyrics | Track Details

One- two- three- four- five- six- seven- eight-
days go marching by
There and back I never wait for a confident reply
Truth is stark and leaves its mark as limited
constraints
And the most difficult part is accepting what the
future may bring
It seems like a lifetime of scrutiny
Wither the pain, whether worth the fee
A lifetime of scrutiny
And it seems as though I can't be sure of
anything anymore
One- two- three- four- five- six- seven- eight-
years go flying by
No one seems to hesitate or cast an earnest eye
Judgment comes in many forms but never scarce
or shy
And the litany is long as the confidence is strong
in their delight
It seems like a lifetime of scrutiny
Prejudicial waters wash over me
A lifetime of scrutiny
And the words just don't equate with sense or
sanity anymore
One- two- three- four- five- six- seven- eight-
the faces and the names
Shattered hopes and stolen dreams and no one
left to blame
Is it possible to win this pointless mortal game?
'Cuz when death comes it's swift and my friend,
we end up all the same
It seems like a lifetime of scrutiny
Wither the path and whether worth the fee
A lifetime of scrutiny
And it seems as though I can't be sure of
anything anymore
