Dear Detective

from From Oblivion by The Corps

about

For their new single ‘Dear Detective,’ The Corps take their signature breakneck speed into a heavier, darker turn. The song crashes into a shadowy figure from Gotham’s past, who serves up an alluring temptation to give in to one’s frustrations, and travel down the wrong path…but is it for the right reasons?

lyrics

Dear Detective
I’m sorry for your loss,
How was I to know
The clown would take it all

My admission
I bought him as a pawn
A coin with just one side
But integral for the fall

Your fallen soldier
You should’ve seen his eyes
The demon’s blood attached
I know he picked a side

The hatter and puppeteer, they are they rats
With them in the floor, we’ll never be free to dance
So breathe in your own destiny, and stand by my side
What this world needs, is a swift forceful goodbye

I’m tired of hearing all the bureaucrats
Forget their latency it’s time to act
You are the only one who stands a chance
Now let me show you true honest romance

Open your eyes, this ends tonight
My ancient scribe, the pit runs dry
Your parents would say, it’s better this way
The world at your fist, we’ll take more than this

The farmhand and that flightless bird, they are the rats
With them in the floor, we’ll never be free to dance
So breathe in your own destiny, and stand by my side
What this world needs, is a swift forceful goodbye

The gods they had served for years, still on the battlefield, will someday relent with pride and pass down the torch. These four will charge their rings and make a stand 'til the deaf hear the light. ... more
