about

Decoy sets the tone for those left on the side of the road.
This life is only what you make of it.


Ethics' debut single, featured from the upcoming EP, "Ethos."
Decoy was composed and written by Ethics.

lyrics

Well it seems my past has come back around
Just like they said it would
that all too familiar never ending cycle
The more I look at myself, the less I understand myself
and hell... I barely even recognize myself
Sanity left my brain long ago

I've been battered with false realities,
with false hope
I lost people I love
who I thought cared enough to stay the course
So flooded with emotions and feelings I can't explain
To the point of the complete absence
Of them all together.

I've been there
and we've all been there
but no more
Look foward with intent
Take what you want
Just be who you are
and don't let anything hold you back
stand up and fight

Drowning in my thoughts tonight
It's time I fight
This feeling never ends, it won't subside
The man I used to know is all but gone
Now he burns forever, Ive lost all hope

I've been there
and we've all been there
but no more
Look foward with intent
Take what you want
Just be who you are
and don't let anything hold you back
stand up and fight

The Darkness of my own personal injury
Loans a few days of our lives
We have a single release
Playing a game of conciousness

The phantom of what's inside
Will forever go unpunished
Due to your selfish lack of empathy
Trapped inside the limit of self

This is not the intended recipient of this message
we came together seeking this new outlook on consciousness
We are the masters of words unsaid
but slaves of those we let slip out

I raise my glass to you
thought empty and stained
I'll fill it just the same
Our delusions are not solutions
Escape is not justified
You're not alone in your pain

I've been there
and we've all been there
but no more
Look foward with intent
Take what you want
Just be who you are
and don't let anything hold you back
stand up and fight
