Lyrics:

Title: Century
Written and composed by Eric Lane

I once was made of stone and such a fine clay
Until you came along and had unmade me
You took the deepest part and had betrayed me
Yes you took hold of my heart and had betrayed me

I went back a thousand years to those who made me
And I stood upon the throne of those who ruled me
Until I hung there like all those who have come before me
Yes they hung me like all those who came before me

I will lean upon this misery
Like and old man's cane
On the side that he finds weak
And I will wear my face
Like a mask upon defeat
I will lie
I will cry
I will steal
I will cheat
But I will bear this sentence
As a man from the wrong century

I came across a man who had thought he knew me
We began throwing stones and he out threw me
He was mistaken for I am not the man I could be
The weaves this night are thicker than what he sees

I will lean upon this misery
Like and old man's cane
On the side that he finds weak
And I will wear my face
Like a mask upon defeat
I will lie
I will cry
I will steal
I will cheat
But I will bear this sentence
As a man from the wrong century

I fought amongst the men once akin to me
I have melted off my skin to face them as I see
They stood as if I wasn't who I came to be
I must see myself as I want them to see me

I will lean upon this misery
Like and old man's cane
On the side that he finds weak
And I will wear my face
Like a mask upon defeat
I will Lie
I will cry
I will steal
I will cheat
But I will bear this sentence
As a man from the wrong century
