TITLE. LYRICS

Concert version

Candidate

Forced by the pressure, the territory's marked
No longer the pleasure, I've since lost the heart
Corrupted from memory, no longer the power
It's creeping up slowly, that last fatal hour

Please keep your distance, the trail leads to here
There's blood on your fingers, brought on by fear
I campaigned for nothing, I worked hard for this
I tried to get to you, you treat me like this
