Expectations Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Now all the lies are beginning to show
And you're not the country that I used to know
I loved you once from my head to my toe
But now my belief is shaken

And all your ways are so untrue
No one breaks promises the way that you do
You guided me, I trusted you
But now my illusion's shaken

Thought this empire would be here
At least a thousand years
But all the expectations and aspirations
Slowly disappear

Now all the lies have gone on too long
And a million apologies can't right the wrong
Soldiers die but the lies go on
But soon we will awaken

In our expectations for the future
We were not to know
We had expectations, now we've reached
As far as we can go

And all your manners are too, too polite
Just to prove that your conscious is white and bright
You had your day so get ready for the night
For another dawn is breaking

We had expectations, now we've reached
As far as we can go
