This song is about forfeiting.


Forfeit, forfeit, forfeit, forfeit.

You've fallen for lies, you've fallen for your own disguise.
You find yourself hiding from all that you have cared for.
Fallen soul, you've fallen from a place above.
You've fallen low, you've lost all you ever had, all you ever had, it's what you

Forfeit, forfeit, forfeit, forfeit.

But for the flood that overflows from your heart,
Would you have landed upon all that you have lost, all that you have lost? It's what you

Forfeit, forfeit, forfeit, forfeit.

You let it go, you give it up, you succumb to your sweet surrender.
You'll always know what you can't have, you'll always live in the remainder, live in the remainder of what you

Forfeit, forfeit, forfeit, forfeit.
