Protest The Hero - Tandem Lyrics


Protest The Hero - Tandem

Everyone knows that cancer takes bites of every family
And it eats up families whole
Dance around the issue
Take issue with the answers provided
The past few years radiate with treatment
But to every day she'll put her cap on and greet them
She's got demons, but you'll never meet them
Yeah, we hope day that she can finally beat them all

She laughs for us
She laughs so don't worry
She smiles through the pain
And keeps the details blurry

My intentions are not to expose
The depths of her troubles aren't mine to disclose
But like evening rain on the peddle of a rose
It drips down to the Earth and it begins to compose

And if there's one thing that remains so crystal clear to us
It's that the wandering hands of the God's are so goddamn mysterious

Like there could be a justification
For the lives it takes and the lives that its taken

This isn't a eulogy or a requiem
Just some words I sketched down 'cause I haven't said them
This isn't about her father or brother
Just a few simple words so she knows that I love her
And tragedy will never disaffect her
I hope she knows how much I respect her

My intentions are not to expose, inverse or impose
The depths of her troubles aren't mine to disclose
But like evening rain on the peddle of a rose
It drips down to the Earth and begins to compose
A song worth singing
A world that keeps on stinging
And that one sinking feeling thats always worth clinging onto
And a stone and a glass house thats always worth slinging

She laughs for us
She laughs so we don't worry
She smiles through the pain
And keeps the details blurry

My intentions are not to expose
The depths of her troubles aren't mine to disclose
But like evening rain on the peddle of a rose
It drips down to the Earth and begins to compose

Saints walk the Earth
They don't patrol the skies
They're the people right behind you, riding tandem through the night
It's a comfort that's discovered between two sets of eyes
It's one hand that stills the other and shakes like candlelight
Like candlelight
