Illusions of Grandeur (ft. Matt Williams)

lyrics

You’re like an iceberg in the sea of our future,
Swell behind us, but you’re dragging let me take the helm,
Don’t you understand that all we’ve worked for,
We worked for it together,
That was then and this is now, take a bow, step aside,
I won’t let you destroy everything,
Running out of steam, a strong and stable leader is what we need,

Why are you so insufferable?
How can you justify pushing me out?
We made this together,
You’ll break this forever,
Tearing down piece by piece everything we worked to achieve,

This is a step in the wrong direction,
We need to work together if we are going to make things right,

But of course, you won’t see this,
They’re getting stronger every day,
Your illusions of grandeur,
Will never fade away,

I’m getting sick of it,
Should I quit and just be done with it?

Am I ready to end everything we worked for?
You’ve become impossible,
You don’t know what you’re saying,
You’re not a captain you’re a sailor,
All the time and effort wasted,

Was it worth it?
Can I save this?
This is as much mine as yours,
You’re taking over,
It used to matter that I was involved,

This friendship is just a lie,
You need compromise to succeed in this life,

But of course, you won’t see this,
They’re getting stronger every day,
Your illusions of grandeur,
Will never fade away,

I’m getting sick of your bullshit,
I don’t know how to make a difference any more,
If this doesn’t change, I’m just going to walk right out the door,

Should I quit and just be done with it?
It would be easier to forget,
But to let you tear it all apart,
Would be fucked up.
