lyrics

(Verse 1)
All of my life has been a race
Nothing else can compare
A cutthroat world is where I've made
My path of great despair

I once thought that I had it all
Power and wealth to spare
Then one day I began to fall
Through depths, beyond repair

It's time to re-envision

Today I make
a new self image

But part of me
Wants to repeat
My past of shameless greed

I hope I'll be forgiven

(Chorus)
Live in a castle I've built with my iron soul
Live in a mansion of guilt where I call home

I can see plainly now where I've gone wrong
This is where I belong

(Verse 2)
Old habits die hard in this game
But fabric always tears
My lies have built a house of cards
Collapse is what I bear

Chained to my demons for a time
Stuck in a golden chair
The smooth surface brings to mind
How life can be unfair

I don't need your protection

Tonight I make
my last confession

That part of me
Cannot repeat
My past of shameless greed

I've lost my false perfection

(Chorus)
Live in a castle I've built with my iron soul
Live in a mansion of guilt where I call home

I can see plainly now where I've gone wrong
This is where I belong

(Post chorus)
Tear down these four walls

(Chorus)
Live in a castle I've built with my iron soul
Live in a mansion of guilt where I call home

I can see plainly now where I've gone wrong
