Promises
Thrice Lyrics


Oh, we promise pretty things
And we pledge with diamond rings
We profess undying love

But does that word hold any weight
When we reserve the right to break
Any vow that draws our blood

Our word is so faint and feeble
Broken by the slightest breeze or breath
Our hearts are so deceitful
Sick and filled with lies that lead to death

We are cowards and thieves
Will we never turn to grieve the damage done
Never see, never quake with rage at what we have become
What we have become

Yeah we get down on one knee
O, we play at chivalry
But we do not count the cost

We say, "On me you can depend,
I will be there 'till the end"
Though we will not bear the cross

Our word is so faint and feeble
Broken by the slightest breeze or breath
Our hearts are so deceitful
Sick and filled with lies that lead to death

We are cowards and thieves
Will we never turn to grieve the damage done
Never see, never quake with rage at what we have become
What we have become

We are cowards and thieves
Will we never turn to grieve the damage done
Never see, never quake with rage at what we have become
What we have become

We are cowards and thieves
Will we never turn to grieve the damage done
Never see, never quake with rage at what we have become
What we have become

Thrice quite literally changed my life. I was wallowing in dark places when I discovered them. I wasn't sure who I was (my own identity crisis, ironically). Who would I be? Where was I going? Before Thrice, I'd never encountered such depth in music - particularly in lyrics. I became a thinker - a philosopher, of sorts. So I quit my job and went to college. I earned a degree in Creative Writing, and am now less than a year from attaining a Master's degree. I'm teaching composition, too. Thrice4E!

Not only is thrice truly lyrically and musically exceptional, but they seem to have an adept understanding of cinematography that connects to both their song's themes, but to their audience.

The damage done"

This is poetry. The past 3 years without any new Thrice has been rather bland. Music nowadays has lost all quality. I'd rather listen to the same 5 Thrice CDs than listen to the crap on the radio(Just my opinion). We miss you Thrice and I know we will see you soon.
