Woe Is Me 02:42
I'm exhausted by your complete disregard for the open arms that have been standing by Crying wolf at the expense of those who have been there the whole time So why burden ourselves With problems easily solved Just a simple change And a desire for more Don't you desire more Years fade into the past without taking a step When all that can be seen Are roadblocks in the path Free yourself Take back control You live in fear of the happiness you know you could have had You're lost at sea Ignoring the lights That could guide you home When everything turns black you bite the hands of those who are trying to feed Fighting positive with negative You can't hope to win You're never going to win
Safe Hands 02:46
No sins to be paying for So no guilt felt come the end The rules laid down have failed To prove themselves further in Conscience is clean But I now fear whats next To have to leave behind or be the one that's On the day I was named I was blessed with a fighting chance Taught from birth to believe All that I can achieve Not just too waste away Chasing bliss we can't attain As days shorten it seems Those held dear become more clear reminders of all that pure Now I've come to know I'm realizing everything passed down to me that makes me good I learned from you Not instilled to breed fear of the unknown But to grow Promise of something more is no comfort through the storm Only safety I know is that which I felt at home I won't be talked into feeling like I need to be condemned for mistakes that I never made I refuse to stand trial for a crime that's falsified I wont be made to feel this guilt this pain This disgrace Built from birth to believe All that I can achieve Not just too waste away Chasing bliss we can't attain Beauty in front i see Can't be matched in a dream Grateful for everything That was handed to me (I will stay) Grateful for everything
Static thoughts, cloud my mind Stagnant memories, hold me back Stuck in a storm, no way back Cold and alone, no way out My unconscious conscience trips me up Paralyzed by my own fuck ups I'm not gonna make the cut Pull me out Back for more, shook hands with the devil now he owns my soul Black turned gold, the past is just a faint storm flickering behind me Embrace your past, but don't live in it My future's my own and my alone Bad memories won't haunt me I may be worn in, but I'm not worn out No way back No way out Set your sights ahead The past is dead This is the next coming of age These streets don't look the same An older night seems brighter then a new day It sends my mind astray How can you face the day, when life won't go your way You pick your head up, motherfucker
Beg and borrow, to start out on your own Debt and sorrow, is all you have to show Take your mark, join the rat race Follow the herd Do you take your job, to have and to hold 'Til death do you part, buried in work It's hard to run with a chain around your throat Pulled by expectation, your bound to choke Led from the path Hold your ground Break what they make Don't back down Who gave you the perch to preach, how life's meant to be
