[Verse 1]
You and I are in a world we made for ourselves
With nothing more than
I believe in you believe in me

Far away from this hell we call our space where the people stay and point their fingers at us

[Chorus]
We’re just their cautionary tale
A parallel world they just can't understand
Like peacock feathers on a cowboy hat
We stick out in all the wrong dimensions

[Verse 2]
Here and now
We were forced to be content
To contend with mice and men
Mice and men that are left in charge of all the places

The traps are set
In hope to capture something new
But the holy grail
Is impossible to find

[Chorus]
We’re just their cautionary tale
A parallel world they just can't understand
Like peacock feathers on a cowboy hat
We stick out in all the wrong dimensions

[Verse 3]
Kiss and tell
About the day you lost your love
And when the morning came
And took away everything except the empty hollow echoes

You and I
Are in a world we made for ourselves
With nothing more than
I believe in you believe in me

[Chorus]
We’re just their cautionary tale
A parallel world they just can't understand
Like peacock feathers on a cowboy hat
We stick out in all the wrong dimensions

A Cautionary Tale Lyrics

The Silent State – A Cautionary Tale Lyrics

[Verse 1]
You and I are in a world we made for ourselves
With nothing more than
I believe in you believe in me

Far away from this hell we call our space where the people stay and point their fingers at us

[Chorus]
We’re just their cautionary tale
A parallel world they just can't understand
Like peacock feathers on a cowboy hat
We stick out in all the wrong dimensions

[Verse 2]
Here and now
We were forced to be content
To contend with mice and men
Mice and men that are left in charge of all the places

The traps are set
In hope to capture something new
But the holy grail
Is impossible to find

[Chorus]
We’re just their cautionary tale
A parallel world they just can't understand
Like peacock feathers on a cowboy hat
We stick out in all the wrong dimensions

[Verse 3]
Kiss and tell
About the day you lost your love
And when the morning came
And took away everything except the empty hollow echoes

You and I
Are in a world we made for ourselves
With nothing more than
I believe in you believe in me

[Chorus]
We’re just their cautionary tale
A parallel world they just can't understand
Like peacock feathers on a cowboy hat
We stick out in all the wrong dimensions
