Mushroomhead - What a Shame lyrics

[Intro]
With a heavy heart and a black mark on my soul
This burden's a bastard that we have all known
In a world without heroes, just abandoned thrones
All is gone, all is gone (All is gone)

[Verse]
While gangs of the ignorant extol their intolerance
Sweeping the streets while preaching their nonsense
Your soul is on fire, your world is in flames
What a shame, what a shame
What a shame to behold
This act's getting old
Pack up the tents and send the circus home
Move it on down the line, a catastrophic pantomime
The last to know, the first in line time after time

[Chorus]
Life in a pile of ashes
Plight of the vile and disastrous

[Verse]
While gangs of the ignorant extol their intolerance
Sweeping the streets while preaching their nonsense
Your soul is on fire, your world is in flames
What a shame, what a shame
What a shame to behold
This act's getting old
Pack up the tents and send the circus home
Move it on down the line, a catastrophic pantomime
The last to know, the first in line time after time

[Chorus]
Life in a pile of ashes
Plight of the vile and disastrous

[Bridge]
While you're praying
For a savior
Anticipating
Awaiting their failure
Cross the T's and dot the I's
Another Christ to crucify
These filthy hands and guilty eyes
Blind concubine

[Outro]
With a heavy heart and a black mark on my soul
This burden's a bastard that we have all known
In a world without heroes, just abandoned thrones
All is gone, all is gone (All is gone)
With a heavy heart and a black mark on my soul
This burden's a bastard that we have all known
In a world without heroes, just abandoned thrones
All is gone, all is gone (All is gone)
