Track Name: Cordelia (For Truth, Wherever I Might Find Her)
I've been doing some thinking
About this world I knew before
I grew, and fell into
This cloud of corruption I can not see through
I hope you don't mind
But I'm kind of a failure, it's true
So, what's the use?

Sit down and just listen I'll tell you the use
Your city's in trouble, your people confused
Why are you sitting here laughing and drinking
With nothing to lose?

I object!
Or I guess I resemble these words more instead
Powerless except for the place in my head
And I'm worried I'm crazy
Despite all these things that you've said

I don't know what I'm to do
It's all too much
And I'm shocked, and I'm stunned
And I'm tearing in two
You're much too young to see
That you do hold
All the power that you need
All the power that you need

I've been doing some thinking
About this person I drowned before
I swore the ghost that I was
Bound on puppeteer strings
Just like iron clad chains
Would never determine my hope
Or my heartbreak again

So I never knew
No, I've never known someone
Someone like you
Someone with virtue who tells me the truth
Without a hidden agenda of secrets
They're trying to abuse

Well let's get away!
Let's get out of this place
This prison you've created

That sounds rather nice
But our world never sleeps
You look rather flushed
May I pour you a drink mademoiselle?

Thank you, my lord
But I can not indulge
In the fear that I'll like
How my judgement is slowed...

I don't know what I'm to do
It's all too much
And I'm shocked, and I'm stunned
And I'm tearing in two
You're much too young to see
That you do hold
All the love that I need
It's the truth that you need

Just come a little bit closer
Let's try a little bit harder
Then you'll finally see
That it comes down to you
And it comes down to me
We must challenge the word
We must fight to be free

'Cause I've been doing some thinking
About this hate that swells and breaks
This state, this self-chosen fate
This wreck I'm escaping before it's too late
