The Better Man

from by A Ghost in the Machine



I knew it would come to this
After all we'd done together
Now we stand as opposites
At our final encounter
The moon is our only witness
This world is slowly torn apart and
We're left picking up the pieces
Shattered far beyond repair

This world has blurred your vision
No room for feeble minds
You fail to make decisions
It takes to stay alive

You're not supposed to be here
You live on borrowed time
So now your own death draws near
I'm taking back what's mine

I see it in your eyes
You are a broken man
Tormented inside
By the blood on your hands
Pushed to the brink
By a world you think you understand
So what's your master plan?
You're just a coward in the end

Please don't make me do this
You're like my fucking brother
How could you be so selfish?
I thought that you were better
This jealousy has left you blinded,
Ashamed of what you've done
I can learn to forgive and forget it
If you'll just put down that gun

You should have known
This path we chose
Just can't end any other way

The ones back home
Will only know
The story I chose to portray

How could you murder me in cold blood?
You think the others won't catch on?
I have a family waiting for my return
To a place we've been reluctant to call home

I am the better man (I've made my vows)
You tore us apart (I won't back down)
How could you make me do this? (I can't let you get the best of me)

I am the better man (No more to say)
You tore us apart (I'll fade away)
How could you make me do this? (Now I'll die along with all my dreams)
