lyrics

in the afterglow of an epiphany
i throw my guns to the ground
i shoot my empty arms up in the air
surrender to a past ridin hard to take me down
on the heels of a battlescarred life
i've learned the moral of achille's story
survive the things that kill all that you hold dear
and watch your tale of grief get confused for glory

lately ive been haunted by loved ones and friends
casualties of the fast life, alcohol, and god's medicine
i used to swear i'd do anything to save just one of them
look at me now, back on my horse racing for troy again

its so easy to believe things you're never gonna see
but just try to sleep at night when you deny the life you lead
you can close your eyes, you can shut your mouth
but the the darkness, the still of the night
have a habit of pushin the truth out

lately ive been haunted by loved ones and friends
casualties of the fast life, alcohol, and heroin
i used to swear i'd do anything to save just one of them
look at me now, back on my horse
wasted in troy again

on the heels of a battlescarred life
i've learned the moral of achille's story
survive the things that kill all that you hold dear
and watch your tale of grief will get confused for glory

lately ive been haunted by loved ones and friends
