Destiny Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Look at the world outside
Beware its evil tide
Too many endless days
Cold streets and alleyways

The poor come crawling out
They speak but never shout
I think you'd rather be alone

You're hiding in a shell
So easy I can tell
Can you sell me some thoughts?
Though drugs just can't be bought

Tell me is it some crime
To wait a long time?
I think you'd rather be alone

Can you hear me? Can you see
I don't want this destiny
To be destined, destiny

Something's been happening here
Don't touch, don't come so near
Don't ask me to reply
Can't think of no more lies

The hand that reaches out
Can crush without a doubt
I think you'd rather be alone

Oh, much is left unexplained
It's getting too much strain
Yet still you wear that smile
Then walk your crooked mile

Some day you're bound to learn
Too late, there's no return
I think you'd rather be alone

Can you hear me? Can you see
I don't want this destiny
To be destined, destiny

Can you hear me? Can you see
I don't want this destiny
To be destined, destiny
