Heroes For Hire - Set In Stone Lyrics

Featuring: Joel Birch

Here's to the new year and just like every year that's come and gone
This year's the year I say I'll get my sh*t together and get on
With doing everything I promised, to myself but let's be honest
Nothing's changed

Here's to the friends that still pretend like there is nothing wrong
With getting f*cked up every weekend and still acting like they're young
Cos 25′s the new 18 and what they think's not what it seems
But that's OK

So I'll surround myself with losers
Just to give off the illusion
That I'm not useless, I'm just lying to myself
And I'll keep on believing

I'll watch as you turn your life to gold
And look down on me as I start to carve mine out of stone
You're fit to wear a crown, I'm still reaching for the throne
I'll use every last excuse, til they're worn down to the bone
It's my life set in stone

Here's to the endless, somewhat reckless years of growing up
To every day that just got wasted chasing dreams that just got f*cked
I'll say I've filled myself with purpose
If you don't scratch beneath the surface cause nothing's changed

Here's to the best of bad intentions, here's to giving up
On every bullsh*t expectation, on every lesson I've been taught
I'll take for granted all the things
I should've learned from but never did and that's OK

So I'll surround myself with losers
Just to give off the illusion
That I'm not useless, I'm just lying to myself
And I'll keep on believing

I'll watch as you turn your life to gold
And look down on me as I start to carve mine out of stone
You're fit to wear a crown, I'm still reaching for the throne
I'll use every last excuse, til they're worn down to the bone
That's my life set in stone

I guess I'm just a liar, so don't believe a word I've said
Just like a spider, I'll have you trapped inside my web
I'm growing tired, I need a place to rest my head
Just like a fire, I know I'll burn out in the end

I guess I'm just a liar, so don't believe a word I've said
Just like a spider, I'll have you trapped inside my web
I'm growing tired, I need a place to rest my head
Just like a fire, I know I'll burn out in the end

So I'll surround myself with losers
Just to give off the illusion

I'll watch as you turn your life to gold
And look down on me as I start to carve mine out of stone
You're fit to wear a crown, I'm still reaching for the throne
I'll use every last excuse, til they're worn down to the bone
That's my life set in stone
