Bow Before You (Rea Garvey)

There's a house on the hill We used to dream of But no one lives there anymore They were taken by the dream of a better life On the 50th floor Do you remember how we spoke and all those things we said we'd do Well it's all changed now Like the photos of the house that we dreamed of All the colours faded out I won't bow before you now You're not a saint I won't bow before you now All the stories that you tell Of your riches and your wealth They don't make you a better man Did you ever count the cost Of the ones that you've lost Making sense of what you'll never understand I won't bow before you now You're not a saint I won't bow before you now We believed all the words that they sold us From the banker to the priest Just one taste is all it takes to start that downward spiral Now Jeckyl's hiding from the beast I won't bow before you now We're not the same I won't bow before you now All the stories that you tell Of your riches and your wealth They don't make you a better man Did you ever count the cost Of the ones that you've lost Making sense of what you'll never understand I won't bow before you now We're not the same I won't bow before you now I will fight to the death For the pride that I've left I won't be a slave to your lies And now time has stood still For that house on the hill And I've washed my hands of the devil that's inside I won't bow before you now You're not a saint I won't bow before you now We're not the same I won't bow before you now You're not a saint I won't bow before you now
