WE ARE THE MASTERS
WE ARE THE MASTERS OF OUR SUFFERING

Lyrics

WE ARE THE MASTERS OF OUR SUFFERING

Kill my dreams
Steal my heart
Break my body into
A million parts
Find the lesson in the pain
Or we’ll be back this way again

Ship of fools
Sailing blind
Ends up shattered on the
Reefs of time
No one wants to take the blame
We seem addicted to the pain

Brown eyes swimming for the surface
Someone reaching for your hand
Will you offer them some solace?
Will you finally take a stand?

We close our eyes
And walk the ledge
Hand in hand we light the fuse
That blows the bridge
Now we’ll see what we have learned
Can we heal what we have burned?

We are the masters of our suffering
There is no need to look above
We are the masters of our suffering
It is a measure of our love

Look around
Check your heart
Salvation waits
Like a lover in the dark
Find the lesson in the pain
Or we’ll be back this way again

We are the masters of our suffering
There is no need to look above
We are the masters of our suffering
It is a measure of our love

We close our eyes
And walk the ledge
Hand in hand we light the fuse
That blows the bridge
Now we’ll see what we have learned
Can we heal what we have burned?
