The Protomen — II b: Unrest in the House of Light lyrics

The page contains the lyrics of the song "II b: Unrest in the House of Light" by The Protomen.


You have heard me tell this story many times, before you sleep
This time listen carefully
And I will tell you once again,
and this time understand that what I’m telling you
every single word is true.
You need to know
There was another who came before you
He was a hero and your brother and my son
He fought the darkness, the darkness won
He fought bravely, and he died bravely,
but he was forsaken by the ones he wished to save
and when he died he died in vain
you need to know
you are not him
The time is coming that I must warn you
And though it’s something that you may not understand
they can’t be saved by just one man
And I am sorry, cause I was wrong
and I take away the weight his shoulders had to bear
cause when he fell I was the only one that cared
you need to know
you are not him
his fight’s not yours
that story’s finnished, that story’s ended
and understand there’s nothing more that you can do I will not risk losing you
for if you leave now, you will be fighting,
for a people that refuse to comprehend
they have chosen their own end
you will stay here, you will obey me and I will keep grieving for the son I sent to death
you are all I have left
you need to know
you are not him
his fight’s not yours
you can not win
