You always thought that I would crash and burn Let's check the facts I'm on my way to reaching higher ground And you're losing track It's not too long before I'm on your trail I'll take you down Just let me go, I've got the power, yeah Was lost but now I'm found Hey, you know I wasted time on you But now I know what's true No, I won't go back there anymore No I won't look for you So where's the pain of yesterday? Yeah, I feel like runnin' far away So I can chase my dreams So it doesn't matter anymore Cause now, I know what's true
You wore me to the bone with your lies A falling star alone, collapse and die Inside you there lies a key to my heart I breathe for no other sign But to show you I am here
I coulda made it with you And it's too bad you wouldn't come with me too We coulda done it, we coulda gone so far And now it feels like wishin' on a dyin' star Cause you told me that you didn't want to build a world with me You refused to open up and live your dreams You said you liked to stay beside yourself and never let me in And you only wanted to save me from your sin, but I said Where was our childhood? All of our secrets and nightmares? Did they mean so little you could cease to care? I'd like to know, why'd you have to go? I wanted to get lost, but I wanted you lost with me too
Another day, another way to make myself alive again But to my left there is a rock and to my right a hard place that we've all been I know you try as hard as I but there's no relief for what's been done And I refuse to be abused by the idea that I've done anything wrong No, I don't need you in this life Cause when I'm lonely I'm alright But who will fight for me when I fall? When I'm taken, once I'm gone I can remember last December that there was a time where we once met Out on a battlefield, a weary world where I've been buried in cold regret I let you in for just a minute when I was weak, and felt at home You left me hangin', shot my heart out with it bangin' while I stood frozen to my bones
I have been to many places, all of which I've never seen For the same I've left no traces, save for those who remember me What's the right solution, what's the way to breaking out? Here's a story I can tell you about someone that I once knew Who found himself, but lost his freedom, and didn't know what he should do After he had found his fortune, the world became a different place He knew he could not trust the people, and none would look upon his face Though the world had crushed his spirit, and cast him from their wicked grounds He didn't need the people's trust and he didn't want their shallow crowns What became of this old story about someone I call my friend? He wrote a song of grace and glory, and found that he was free again Oh, it feels so right to dream under the stars Where a part of me is free to roam where I belong!
Once I asked you to fill an empty space To live inside the shadow of the life I had to face And though you took me, and made me feel alive I wonder just how much of me that you have helped to die Just like a burn will linger, she crept between my fingers And to my body she has now become a new disease A fog to cloud my vision, more like an apparition She made a mess and now abandoned me So I thought I'd burn the bridge you made for me But when I did, all our love was left behind Now what we've got to show is a memory And just like ghosts, it will keep me up at night Well I had a revelation, cause I found a new location A place inside your heart you thought that I would never see Without a hint, or notion, you wrought without emotion A brand new world for you to toy with me And now I know that you are waiting somewhere Watching me, to see what I will do So I will go, no, I won't stay to bother you The one thing that I counted on that I believed was true
Hammer, swing down on me Become the killer of convictions and crush my impurities Oh, hammer, lay down your heavy head Carry my confessions cause you know that I won't rest Until the ground is made my bed Left with an empty soul, too late to hope you'll hurt me Made from a broken spirit, I've lost the life I never had She crept inside my mind, where all my secrets wander Tricked by a wicked woman, no way to get away from this You, you better suffer it somehow Holdin' on is never not your style Watch as the people knock you down Take another kick straight to your smile I tried to tame her ways, make this a life worth living Just like a wolf in sheepskin, she had a lion's attitude Her ranks enjoyed the ride, their fangs became my best friends Surrounded by an army, who only want to waste your flesh
Valley of the Shadows
There's a place not too far from where I know It's a hidden land, known only as the valley of the shadows I was told in my youngest years that I should never go And I believe there's a place like that, not far from where you know Will there ever be a place for me again? If only I could find the pieces of my broken life to mend And when I came across this hole in time I never meant to spend Will I find my way back home from here? In my dreams, I have traveled far away To a colder land, where the sun reflects the nature of our ways And in time, we will seek a balm to cure us of this blaze Oh necessity, give us hope again, and guide us all our days We are broken in a world of night Let it go, let my soul take flight As it is written on the banks of sand I will fear no evil from the wicked land
Kinetics (feat. Tim Bonvallet)
Sense the stars all around my cold remains With their warmth, and light Chase me down with the ultraviolet rays Slipping through my eyes But now, a new world is made The remnants of death create what was laid to rest And now a new star will carry away All our fears, and pain With creation comes a real responsibility And it's a power we as humans will abuse We will go beyond the realms of sensibility And with it's guidance, we will see the universe
You may call, you may say I'm a voyager Far from here, I will pass the lengths of time Though I drift, a direction finds itself Breathe into my eyes where I've gone, and where I'm going You may call, you may say I'm a traveler I have no home, I only wander on the edge Take me up to a higher place from here So that I may face where I've gone, and where I'm going
Looking back I find many holes along the path Where there once was only kindness I saw you far away, with that same old knowing grin That would melt the fears I had about our love You and I, we ran, yeah we hoped we'd never lose this thought We'd keep it close next to our hearts Favoring our wants, we dispelled what darkness wrought The reality of where we are, and where we've been Cold, dead trees Brings me to my beaten knees Brings me to my knees! Watching out for us, every day the sun would rise Flooding light into our eyes In between the forest leaves, all the rays would give us hope Give us something now to live for! And I knew that where we went, there was no turning back A permanent reflection on our souls Gathering our thoughts, what we never really knew could be so true What has this world done to me and you? Cold, dead trees Brings me to my beaten knees Brings me to my knees!
