Mushroomhead - 11th Hour lyrics

[Verse 1]
Waiting on the call one day, waiting to be led astray
Waiting for the promise, for the dream to come true
(Sheep to the shepherd)
Waiting to believe the claims, waiting but it's all the same
Waiting for a signal, for a sign to come through
(Cast like the lepers)

[Chorus]
All alone, on the edge of losing hope (Edge of losing hope)
Exactly where they want you
Don't pledge your life, don't hold your breath
Don't sacrifice it all until there's nothing left
Sacrifice

[Verse 2]
Waiting for the rain to cleanse
Praying that this pain will end
Thanks for nothing, I knew I could count on you
(Inconsequential)
As another nightmare ends, brave enough to dream again
Believe in something that might not come true
Why hold on when the cost of letting go (Cost of letting go)
Is less than blind devotion?

[Chorus]
Don't pledge your life, don't hold your breath
Don't sacrifice it all until there's nothing left
Sacrifice
Sacrifice
Sacrifice
Until there's nothing left at all
Don't sacrifice it all

[Bridge]
(Unfulfilled prophecies rust)
(Another cold reader to bleed us)
Unfulfilled prophecies rust
Envy, greed, pride and lust
Tell me, where do you place your trust?
So believe what you must
Unfulfilled prophecies rust
Envy, greed, pride and lust
Tell me, where do you place your trust?
So believe what you must

[Outro]
Can't sit still
How can you fill a void that will not heal?
A gaping wound that cannot be sealed
As you feel the sting of shame and guilt
Can't sit still
How can you fill a void that will not heal?
A gaping wound that cannot be sealed
As you feel the sting of shame and guilt
