Hollow Victory
by Mystic Levello

Hollow Victory

Iím walking away
even though Iím next in line
leaving the crowd, chasing the noise
of all their grand designs

ĎCause I wonít be moved
by promises and empty lore
I've been deceiving myself
about the things Iíve done
and never did beforeÖ

Iím tired of all those lies and aspirations
leading me down that road
to a broken dreamÖ

Cause Itís a hollow victory
when your life
serves only to remind you.

That itís a hollow victory
when all that you are is buried
and wonít come true.

Donít ask me to say
when or where it first began
The point of the matter
and all I need to know
is can I make amendsÖ

ĎCause Iím losing my soul
to something I donít understand
But I'm finding my heart
in all those things I have
and always had in handÖ

Iím tired of all those lies and aspirations
leading me down the road
to a broken dreamÖ

Cause Itís a hollow victory
when your life serves only to remind you

That itís a hollow victory
when all that you are is buried
and wonít come trueÖ

I just had a dream
of living in some magazine
I was running away, driving myself
into that silver screen

Leaving behind that pension
and a picket fence
you know I'm battled and bruised
from living their dreams
At my expenseÖ

Iím tired of all those lies and aspirations
leading me down that road
to a broken dreamÖ
