Black, Blue And Gold Lyrics

Little boy with a heart of gold, your scars forever nigh have told,
malicious deeds that no one should know.
They'll never take your heart of gold.

May angels guide your feet, little boy, towards the peace you truly seek
HIGH PROOF TO EASE THE PAIN WON'T HEAL YOUR WOUNDS THIS WAY.

Little girl with a heart of gold, your smile for long has not been shown.
Don't listen to the jokes they've told.
They'll never hold the weight of gold.

May angels guide your feet, little girl, towards the peace you truly seek
LINED SKIN AND REDDENED BLADE WON'T HEAL YOUR WOUNDS THIS WAY.

May angels guide you there.
Godspeed in getting there.

May angels guide your feet, little one, towards the peace you truly seek;
UNFAIRLY GIVEN SCARS DON'T MAKE YOU WHO YOU ARE.

I'm sorry for the pain I gave.
I'm ashamed I made you feel this way.
I'd take your scars and wounds away.
If I could rewrite yesterday.

Circles We Run Lyrics

We've went to the edge a thousand times before,
and these circles we run have only nailed our feet to the floor.
My jaw aches from hurling words at walls with doors locked, windows boarded, refusing to take calls.
Are we seeking an agreement?
Or is this a competition in obstinance, quick tongues, and redundant flapping lips?
All hail the mighty pride - even when you're wrong you're always right.

We've spent all this time with cruel teeth bared white and wide.
Fierce eyes shine bright through stubborn skulls for the fight.
Blades are cutting deep...All I want is some relief!
THESE FIREBRANDS WILL BE OUR BANE,
may we sheath our tongues for just one day?

THE SWITCHBLADES ARE PULLED.
Hard crusted with old bloodstains never wiped clean.
THE BATTLES REBORN.
What dirt can we use to manipulate?
SWINGING FOR FAME NEVER ACCOMPLISHED ANYTHING BUT SLASHING OUR OWN VEINS.
I know that love doesn't keep score.
Come! Let us stop seeking egos and start seeking respect!

We've spent all this time with cruel teeth bared white and wide.
Fierce eyes shine bright through stubborn skulls for the fight.
Blades are cutting deep...All I want is some relief!
THESE FIREBRANDS WILL BE OUR BANE,
may we sheath our tongues for just one day?

Seconds slink by - I wish we'd see eye to eye.
It's a distant life - a place where we both should be.
There we find a perfect society where people look past their own feelings.

Do we find an agreement or do we find our blades?
These circles we run have gotten us nowhere.

We've spent all this time with cruel teeth bared white and wide.
Fierce eyes shine bright through stubborn skulls for the fight.
Blades are cutting deep...All I want is some relief!
THESE FIREBRANDS WILL BE OUR BANE,
may we sheath our tongues for just one day?
WE NEED A SOLUTION FOR THESE CIRCLES THAT WE RUN.

Final Night Lyrics

It's the final night.
THE SOUNDS THE SIGHTS, the mushroom clouded, blood red skies.
The heavens are ablaze right before our eyes.
HAIL THE LIGHT!
It proclaims our end, our death, impending doom.
Silence is golden - this will have to do - it's the end of all things here with you.

May I have this dance before we die?
And in the fall out's haze we'll fade away, just one last time.
There's no fear in staring in death's eyes.
THESE ARE THE DEFINING TIMES WHEN WE PROVE THAT WERE ALIVE.

Dig your bunkers fast and deep.
Those bombs, THE BOMBS, they are security.
Prideful nation's humiliation when they can't dig as deep as needs to be.
TOTAL WAR, no chance for peace, it's just you and me and history.
So take your heart, LIBERATE IT PLEASE, on the threshold of liberty.

May I have this dance before we die?
And in the fall out's haze we'll fade away, just one last time.
There's no fear in staring in death's eyes.
THESE ARE THE DEFINING TIMES WHEN WE PROVE THAT WERE ALIVE.

Forging Generals Lyrics

These are the ties that bind.
Contracts signed with pulsing blood remind us of color when everything turns to grey.
Absolutes are life.
Deterioration's the killer.
Oath reforms for fallen, lords whose kingdoms die.
Are we fallen lords who've laid their weapons down,
trading resolve for rash cowardice?

We're at war, but the generals' names were forged.
The pen is mighty when the sword is sheathed.
When battle's waged, we'll see what choice we've made by the deeds ink tells;
of valiant feats, it should spell.
For we vow to stand until the end or die.

And the scars we've acquired aren't shadowed in remorse...
these scars are our testament.
That we didn't quench spirit's flame
but we assailed hell with swift feet and iron fists proclaiming.
WE FIGHT! 'TIL VOWS FULFILLED WE SHALL NOT REST!
ASSAIL FOR HONOR TO THE DEATH!

We're at war, but the generals' names were forged.
The pen is mighty when the sword is sheathed.
When battle's waged, we'll see what choice we've made by the deeds ink tells;
of valiant feats, it should spell.
For we vow to stand until the end or die.

Show me courage.
Show me strength.
Show the resolve it takes when buckled knees carry the world because the will doesn't break.
When sweat is blood, as wrung from a sponge
and vinegared wounds cover your progress like rank, cheap, expired perfume.
The Almighty's head held resolutely 'til dead
for greatness wrought, the wise should be taught.
Forging generals.

We're at war, but the generals' names were forged.
The pen is mighty when the sword is sheathed.
When battle's waged, we'll see what choice we've made by the deeds ink tells;
of valiant feats, it should spell.
We will sign our names to stake our claims.
We know the choice that we have made
ASSAIL FOR HONOR TO THE DEATH.
'TIL VOWS FULFILLED WE SHALL NOT REST.

Gavels From Gun Barrels Lyrics

I felt my heart beating faster I never saw it coming!
Gavels from gun barrels expose me as far less than what I need to be.
The sentencing will be dealt swiftly...It's too late to mend my treachery...

Shots ring out as my last mili-seconds unwind...
Time bloats with fresh gun-smoke forcing me to review what I've done with my life
Too late to change, too soon to die.

Life is still warm on my lips.
What can I expect from all of this?
I'm trembling at the mighty feet of mercy - guilty; it's true, but no less sorry.
Too late to change, useless to weep for years of sin weighed on scales accurately.
Interrogate, assassinate, take the lead for justice' sake.
Change of heart, repentant faith only count in mercy's wake...

Shots ring out as my last mili-seconds unwind...
Time bloats with fresh gun-smoke forcing me to review what I've done with my life
Too late to change, too soon to die.

I've debauched and deceived, and destroyed families... I've taken all.
Given none, and received judgement from the objective eye of a gun.
I'm guilty, it's true, but remorseful, no less. I'm sorry!
What becomes of me, but death deserved, received?
What of a crooked man's desperate plea seeking The Good Judge's mercy?
He loved the loveable and the unlovely, the decadent and the holy.
He made a way for the pope and he made a way for me...

FALLEN FROM HELL AND INTO YOUR ARMS...
BLESSED MYSTERY THAT YOU HELD ON...
FALLEN FROM DEATH, LANDING AT YOUR FEET...
AMAZING GRACE SO SWEET.

Shots ring out as my last mili-seconds unwind...
Time bloats with fresh gun-smoke forcing me to review what I've done with my life
Too late to change, too soon to die.
I'm finding out what it truly means to die - too late to change, too soon to die.

Honor And Integrity Lyrics

I've said all my Hail Mary's and I've recited all the right prayers.
I've done a lot in the name of God to gain this solace from your stares.
So break bread as I take unholy communion once more.
As righteous as filthy rags bleeding on the floor.
I'm sitting ripe, sitting fresh in my mire.
Behold the poison untold.
I've tried to show the world just how great a man can be,
but this great man I've charaded is the farthest thing from me.
THE MAN THAT I'VE SHOWN IS A MAN I DON'T KNOW.

So shall it be: Sown lies shall reap.
Honor has died with integrity.

What can I say?
That I've lived what I've told?
They bought me, but I hate the manner through which I was sold.
I know exactly what to do, I know exactly what to say, I believe every word
it's just so hard to obey: Trojan horse lies filled with big butterflies and they bought me.
They took the bate.
Hook, line and false, flaky, dimple-creased smile.
Sit back and enjoy the show!
I'll have you hooked too, in just a little while.

So shall it be: Sown lies shall reap.
Honor has died with integrity.

I've lived all these lies.
No more compromising.
I know what to do.
I know what to say.
I believe every word; it's just so hard to obey!
I know what I've created - this mess that shadows me - it leaves my concious tainted!
I want authenticity, integrity.
Jesus, forgive me.

So shall it be: Sown lies shall reap.
Honor has died with integrity.
MY HONOR HAS DIED WITH MY INTEGRITY.

Sound Of Silence Lyrics

They're coming to take our resolve away.
To steal all the progress that we have made.
Our backs to the wall, but our hands gripped like steel,
and we'll never regret; though they say that we will.

We'll smile at the sound of silence...
These voices say that we'll die - we'll fade by the road as cities fly by.
We will survive and hearing silence, we'll smile when it hurts to be in love.

I'd take it all back if it meant gaining more but I've never fought this hard for you before.
They all say stop, but these time zones have shown what you mean to me and just how far I'll go.

We'll smile at the sound of silence...
These voices say that we'll die - we'll fade by the road as cities fly by.
We will survive and hearing silence, we'll smile when it hurts to be in love.

The Best Of Times Lyrics

To fall from the ladder that you've climbed so high
For true love, for victory, for the right to succeed.
Why do we always miss our last chance to try,
but never the heartache of saying goodbye?

Heavy hands and sad, red eyes waiving at their dreams that just passed by.
We were so fond.
But those moments are gone.
Beloved times that our hearts find - sometimes we must say goodbye.

Now the pieces fall and the chips are laid,
but I'm not the man that I would have made or could have been.
But this is where I find what trust is for:
crying tears of faith that God's got something more.

Heavy hands and sad, red eyes waiving at their dreams that just passed by.
We were so fond.
But those moments are gone.
Beloved times that our hearts find - sometimes we must say goodbye.

THIS IS LIFE AND WHO'S TO SAY
THE MAN I SEE WON'T PALE IN THE SHADOWS OF THE MAN I'LL BE...
with my heavy hands and sad, red eyes waiving goodbye.
We were so fond, but we have to move on.
Beloved times that our hearts find - sometimes we must say Goodbye.
Goodbye to love, my first chance to succeed.
Goodbye sweet victory, I know there is something more for me.

The Day The Blind Revolted Lyrics

Open eyes reveal the thing that's been missing.
Peace of mind - that we won't fall for anything, or fall in line accepting rations naively.
For now we find we won't be swayed so easily.

They controlled everything feigning objectivity until the day the blind revolted and contested their reality.
The wool will pull with vigilance.
Question your life of innocence.

Open eyes reveal the thing that's been missing.
Peace of mind - that we won't fall for anything, or fall in line accepting rations naively.
For now we find we won't be swayed with open eyes.

We take their minds away 'til they believe the truth that we've made.
We throw their hearts away so they will fit our society.

I'M NOT SOLD SO EASILY.
TRUTH IS NOT A PROCESSED GOOD DEPENDENT ON GEOGRAPHY.
Virgin eyes smell conspiracy - there's more than what there seems to be.

Open eyes reveal the thing that's been missing.
Peace of mind - that we won't fall for anything, or fall in line accepting rations naively.
For now we find we won't be swayed so easily.

Open eyes reveal the thing that's been missing.
Peace of mind - that we won't fall for anything, or fall in line accepting rations naively.
For now we find we won't be swayed.
