Autobiographies Lyrics

There's a story where everything could not go right, and I wrote it.
I thought about it late last night.
Can you feel it?
A tale that feeds on tragedy.
Would you read it?
The lessons worth your time.

At the end of the story,
I'll be alone again, alone again.
Does it seem so convincing?
Reckless and undefined, just wasted time.

What are pages, but days that never seemed to flow?
What are chapters?
Just years I never read.
They're all captive.
They put the book down years ago.
Would you blame them?
I wouldn've done the same.

At the end of the story,
I'll be alone again, alone again.
Does it seem so familiar?
Reckless and undefined, redemption time.

All I need is you here 'cause I'm already yours and you are mine.

Building A Better Me Lyrics

Superficial nature wearing thin.
I can't seem to begin.
What really do I see when I stare back at me?
As crushing time reveals my foe,
Inheriting all woe.
Solutions in the past,
Conditioned not to ask.
It's what you're meant to be,
Your name and number.
Be all that you should be.
You will recover things you haven't lost,
Because they don't see you like you think they do.
Please just become you.
Release your fear is what he said.
This all came to a head.
Feel cheated out of you,
Tradition follows through.
Though I can't see how this will end,
I know that you will always pull me through.
My soul went searching for a cause
But came back empty-handed.
The emptiness you see...
Building a better me.

Cheat Me Lyrics

I am now what you seem.
I don't answer to you.
Please understand what I mean.
While it gives me a thrill,
It's all I can do,
You realize that's its all for you.
This is the part,
Where you're supposed to be proud.
I'd listened to reason,
But he's yelling too loud.
It's not important.
Alive for a year.
Love and acceptance.
No one wants to hear me,

Want to talk about it,
Or want to be around it...
Or want to be the one to give you my life.

It's not yours to take.
You were my hero,
But your motives are fake.
Ten thousand people,
Divided by one.
And even still I have just begun,
A struggle to grasp,
All the knowledge at hand.
I'd listen to wisdom,
But he quit the band.
Now what is left?
Only a few.
Look in the mirror,
And see that it's you.

Who wants to talk about it?
Who wants to be around it?
Who wants to be the one to say?
Just walk away.
Not left for me to say.
I've overstayed my welcome here.

In a perfect world this song wouldn't be.
A man is lost.
That man is me.
I'm dragging my feet.
I'm falling behind.
You follow my pain and my mind.
A voyeur to thought,
My guest for today.
I open my arms,
To see you running away.
It's not over yet.
I'm afraid it gets worse.
We all have to give in
And I'll be the first,

To want to talk about it,
To want to be around it,
To want to be the one to say...
Just walk away.

Come Back Down Lyrics

Come back down.
Be around and i'll be home again.
Cross my heart. Close my eyes, as I fall into You.
Be all that I need from You.
I never knew You'd take the opportunity to know someone like me.
All of me rests in You, my Father.
You're my shield.
Hear me, all that I am is You.
So come back down,
Be around and I'll be yours once more...
Around and we'll be closer still.

Comes Crashing Lyrics

It's picking time,
Time for me to leave,
And walk away from us.
My feet are tired,
Too tired to carry both of us through this again.
On into nothing,
Out in the open.
I say goodbye in faith. I'll wait.

Chorus:
Surrender your pain.
Lay down your love.
When I come back,
And it all comes crashing down,
The end-- of your world -- is closer than you think.

My shattered heart,
Is stained with memories,
Of how was life to be.
When giving hurt, The sacrifices made,
Were not enough for me.
I'm coming back,
To rectify,
All the pain,
I caused you.
Don't shield your eyes,
Face tomorrow on your own.

Failure to reason,
Endless confusion,
The unanswered question,
Is why you're on my mind?

(Chorus)

Incomplete without want,
Want is what I know I can't have,
Left alone to argue,
The only arguement that I can win.

Yesterday has past you,
That day that we thought we had,
Incomplete without you,
I want you to know.

(Chorus)

Great Literature Lyrics

It's all in the way that I see things that you don't.
It's all in me having a point of view that you can't.
Touch or destruct, delay or confront, understand or construct.
If I gave you answers you'd shove them right back in my face.
What is real? Face up to the consequence of what will become.
Your thoughts become numb.
I can't wish you there.
Could I make you care?

Mycro Lyrics

I walked outside one day,
The sun wouldn't look my way,
Only darkness,
I felt alone yet safe with you,
I felt the promise to be true,
Swollen teardrops drowned,
The wind was blowing down.
I felt His presence all around,
A voice came through black thunder clouds,
Tell me you're scared.

The rain kept drumming fast,
(Such guilt)
The devil tried to make it last,
But to no avail.
I prayed and cried that night,
I hope that God can make this right,
Just like He always did,
I know I am Your son,
My life has only just begun,
To praise Your Holy Name,
We praise Your Holy Name,

Now, not alone,
This can be made alright. You know my life,
I'll give it back to You,
I know we are Your sons,
We know are lives have just begun,
To let the world know where we stand,
We stand with You.

Nothing New Lyrics

Ahh, Give me time to watch this go.
I will pack all my dreams and I'll go home.
Ahh, Once again I'm nothing new.
Quick to speak, slow to listen and quick to lose.
I'm fine, just lies to keep you from the truth.
Fit in, belong, what's wrong?
Is there something I can do?
There is, my friend.
Please help me this through.
I still don't know why You forgive.
I guess there's hope, the reason I still live.
And when they hear this song they'll right it off because of faith,
not because of things I do or say.

I'm fine, just lies to keep you from the truth.
Fit in, belong, what's wrong?
Is there something I can do?
There is, my friend, these words will stick like glue.

Lord take my life, cuz it's better off with You.
I slip. I fall. By now it's nothing new.
Lord help me see cuz You've got a better view.
Take what's left and make it something new.

Just because I never learned to give up.
Challenge my beliefs.
I will choose to stand up.
Overcoming fears,
Compromising never.
Til' the very end,
We will be together.

Overexposed Lyrics

Like an average American watching violence on TV.
My life's just a rerun. Don't turn the channel on me.
With memories of consciousness I wish to be free.
I'd change the channels first, but the channels changed on me.
With all I know and with all I've seen,
I'm so used to what you won't believe.
When my way out is not so far away,
how bad do you want to turn away from me?
Have I failed you? My mind is a vacuum, waiting for ideas.
My picture's yet fading, the timer's set for sleep.
Take a closer look and you will find what I am hurting for.
Try and understand and you'll retrieve what you had lost before.
Someday you'll know if I could break down these walls.

Someone See Lyrics

As funny as it may seem,
It's no laughing matter though they point at him.
The punchline went all wrong this time.
Someone see if he's all right.
Days pass and life goes on.
The jokes bounce off as he hums his favorite song.
Self esteem's losing the fight.
Someone see if he's all right.
Can't I care just once to,
Take a stand,
To take a side?

Through the crowd we stare,
We cowards here,
We cowards there.

Alone is his best friend.
What we don't know is that he's at his last end.
Maybe I should talk to him?
I'm sure that they'll talk to him.
Where can he find his comfort?
We're all enclosed in our tight circle of friends.
A circle has no open sides.
Someone see if he's all right.

He laughed out loud alone.
He spoke alone.
Lived life alone.
He wouldn't be alone if on my own I'd stand alone.

The Bad Times Lyrics

He walked away...
Turned around to watch friends fade.
Chased by enemies, he made,
Like sin and lust,
Collecting dust on his faith.
Sure they showed him the good times,
But they all ended in bad times
In bad times.

But I dont need them anymore,
It's not to even out the score.

I walked away...
Turned around to watch friends fade.
Chased by enemies, I made,
Like sin and lust,
Collecting dust on my faith.
Sure they showed me the good times,
But they all ended in bad times
In bad times.

And I don't need them anymore,
It's time to even out the score.

And now my feet are planted firm on staying pure,
I'm new.
My past has no place here,
Though I may slip,
Who knows?
I might not, I just might not.
Yeah they showed me the good times,
But they all ended in bad times.
In bad times.

The Bad Times (Reprise) Lyrics

He walked away...
Turned around to watch friends fade.
Chased by enemies he made,
Like sin and lust collecting dust on his faith.
Sure they showed him the good times,
But they all ended in bad times
In bad times.

The Battle Of Them Vs. Them Lyrics

I'll sing a song of a time such as these.
Though many a year as now passed.
The lesson's the same, but the sentiments changed.
The impression it made still does last for all.

Serving his country,
Enlist! Do it now.
His took up his arms, he would show.
Such bravery as he took many a life,
Of the people he would never know

Sing of me.
Of all the men I've killed,
I know that this will build me up.

Think of me.
I know that I'll be brave.
They all fell down that day.

Well after the war, people picked up their life.
The damage was already done.
While fatherless children slept under the door,
And woke innocent to the sun.

Please why me?
I know they'd take it back,
Why don't they take it back?

Comfort me.
A child grows to fast,
And now let him ask.

A small little child sits and waits for his dad,
Hands clutching a brown telegram,
Informs him his father won't be coming home.
He gave up his life for his land.

Sing of me
And all the men I've killed.
I know that this will build me up.

And think of me.
I know that was brave.
We all fell down that day.

The Good Times Lyrics

There was a time that I was fine,
(I swear that everything was fine)
But it just covered all the lies.
I didn't know that everything would change.
I was lost in my own world.
You were compromising yours.
You were never even there.
Not enough to see what you would lose.
I'm letting you off.
My assumption that if I can find some way to get back there,
Intervention straight to your heart.
Without it everything is so perfect.
Why can't I just hide the past,
Forget about the good times?

It's in me, I am you.
Hope I'd never see it through...
Never even think it -- you.
Just so similar to all my fears,
Always feeling trapped inside.
Broken promises provide, years of torment gone astray...
Responsibility, too much to pay.
I open my heart too much anger locked away,
Inside a boy who's without you,
Without what's left I'm left on my own,
Bitter view of an american family.
Create my own redemption.
Bring me to the good times.

There's Room For Everyone Lyrics

Hey mister, where are you going to come in from?
Is everyone just as scared?
Push me away, you don't know me or want to.
Your separation from yourself makes you feel good.

Don't run so fast, it doesn't last.
It's not your fault you stay away.
I've only myself to blame,
I can't change those yesterday,
So let's right the wrongs.
Everyone belongs.

All of the hatred and phobias are stemming from gifts that you didn't earn,
(you don't deserve)
Like little children defining the outcast,
You insure they'll never return.
How will you learn?

Don't think so fast.
They never ask.
You stay inside,
They stay away.
We've only ourselves to blame for the mass-production of shame.
And we right the wrongs.
Everyone belongs.

There is room for me and you. (x2)

We've only myself to blame,
We can't change those yesterday,
So let's right the wrongs.
Everyone belongs.

Truth About It Is Lyrics

It's not easy to be me,
With all my philosophies and my flippant state of mind.
I'd much rather take a nap than jump aloof and do all that,
To worry what the crowd thinks of me tonight.

I'm not asking you to love me.
I'm just letting out the truth.
No holds barred about what I feel,
Nothing wrong with what I say.
I'm not telling you to hate me,
I just want you to relate.
Don't forget about the message or the reason we're on stage.

We once opted for a route wich included selling out.
I won't divulge that here now, so I digress.

I'm not asking you to love me.
I'm just letting out the truth.
No holds barred about what I feel,
Nothing wrong with what I say.
I'm not telling you to hate me,
I just want you to relate.
Don't forget about the message or the reason we're on stage.

The truth about it is that we only do it for the Lord.
