Fallen Idols (Only Crime)

Someone said it years before And today I know it’s true Some dreams can’t help but die Pinned to those that we looked up to What about our children And who’ll pray for tomorrow’s gods And the pain and wisdom gained From decades of moral decay And the fallen idols To me they’re still the same And I pray they rest forever But the new revival Of the skeletal remains Paints a dark and caustic future Burned out like a dying sun On alcohol and cheap romance Where the junkies and the suicides Believed inside they had a chance We’re the kids in the shadows Just beyond society’s eyes Restless and pure of heart They don’t understand so they despise Hey troubadour we’re waiting for you Will your words bring redemption for the times? For all the faded reputations The poets, the sinner and their crimes
