THE TRAIL OF LESSER COMPASSION

You’ve got the darkest stare; unlike I’ve ever seen
You look at me like we’re love-lost friends
But obviously, you don’t know who I am
And if you did this would have to end

But I don’t, no I don’t, want this to end
Because you don’t know you are my love-lost friend

Never said I’ve killed a man
I’ve never done wrong with these two hands
But I’ll let you fall to the side like I never knew you
‘Cause my promise doesn’t mean anything more to me than you do

We can’t win together
We were only taught how to fail
No one’s on our side tonight
It’s just you and I on the trail of lesser compassion

The trail of lesser compassion
Is a one-way road without a sign
We headed out in ’96
But our destination was wasting time

We could have never won together
‘Cause we only taught each other how to fail
We were never on the other’s side
It’s just you and I on the trail of lesser compassion

I’ve always remembered you as a Tiffany
But I can guarantee that’s not your name
No word could have ever suited you
The newest color should have been your name, not all the same

Oh, you deserved the name of the newest color
This primrose sky gave you a choice
Just point with your finger in any direction
And I’ll give that color to your voice

But we can’t win together
We were only taught how to fail
No one’s on our side tonight
It’s just you and I on the trail of lesser compassion
