You need a little makeup dear
To cover up all your stains
With another trick right here, yeah
You fool them all once again
You need a little emptiness
Before you know what is real
And take a little taste of wine, yeah
To give yourself half a chance
And when you're weak of holding on
Release your wayward soul

And with these treasures you have found
The broken pieces of your crown
It's time to lay your cross on down (Lay it down)
And with this kingdom you have now
It's time to lay your cross on down
You better lay it down

You carry in a bright white lie
To cover up all your shame
You're gonna have to testify
To color in all your claims
And when you're weak of holding on
Release your wayward soul and
Spend your days not falling down
Before your empty idols

Chorus

And when you're weak of holding on
Release you wayward soul 
On your walk to surround yourself
With rightful idols

Chorus

Lay it down
(Lay it down)

Chorus
