lyrics

ON MY OWN
Lyrics by Ray Rodgers
Music by Ray Rodgers and Sean Al-Jibouri

It's hard to find a hero
when you think everyone's to blame,
that we all stood up and together,
drug the passion through the shame.
I’ve got no one to guide me.
I’ve got nobody to explain.
I’m on my own.

I wake up in the morning.
I build a lie around the truth.
I lock up all my doors.
I climb up on the roof.
I set my death beside me.
We discuss what I should do.
I build a fire between my lips,
in worship of my muse.

I’ve got myself no Jesus.
I've got no Buddha too.
I've got no love for Allah,
all that life he's going through.
I’ve got no one to save me.
I’ve got no deity to blame.
I’m on my own.

I have no faith in leaders.
I have no faith in breathing too.
I have no faith the earth will last,
until the day I’m through.
I have no faith in futures.
I have no faith in faith as well.
I’m on my own.

I wake up in the morning.
I build a lie around the truth.
I lock up all my doors.
I climb up on the roof.
I set my death beside me.
We discuss what I should do.
I build a fire between my lips,
in worship of my muse.
