Autumn’s Embrace

I can feel it satisfying
Like a shiver down my spine
Nights grow longer I’m out of time
The Story’s ending but I’m still here
The embers drifting into space
And I’m in autumn’s embrace

Can you feel what I feel?
Cause I can’t take you there
Colors revealed, but just be still
The Seasons change you’ll never be the same

As the daylight slips away
the fall comes to and end
but I get back up again
The story’s ending but I’m still here
In my eternal place
In autumn’s embrace

Can you feel what I feel?
Cause I can’t take you there
Colors revealed, but just be still
The Seasons change you’ll never be the same

Nothing can compare to this love that is blind
And the unconditional touch you will find
To have and not hold while surrounded by grace
You’ll never want to leave this place

Can you feel what I feel?
Cause I can’t take you there
Colors revealed, but just be still
The Seasons change you’ll never be the same

Can you feel what I feel?
Colors revealed, but just be still
The Seasons change you’ll never be the same

Nations that Fall

One day we’re dreaming the next day we’re scared
Does it really mean anything to be prepared?
If one day it’s all okay next day it’s not
Are you still grateful for all that you’ve got?
Are you really grateful for all that you’ve got?

Brothers and sisters, can we still stand tall?
Are we no stronger than nations that fall?
Will we be wise enough to heed the call?
Or are we no wiser than nations that fall?

We will decide what the takers may take?
Or are we the pioneers captive to fate?
Do we still listen to voices of past?
Reminding us all of our sins will not last

Brothers and sisters, can we still stand tall?
Are we no stronger than nations that fall?
Will we be wise enough to heed the call?
Or are we no wiser than nations that fall?

Brothers and sisters, can we still stand tall?
Are we no stronger than nations that fall?
Will we be wise enough to heed the call?
Or are we no wiser than nations that fall?

We are but whispers and winds of a tale
Where romantic tragedy tries to unveil
A weaker component of all that we are
We won’t walk together, so we won’t go far
And so we become a new nation that falls

Flip the Switch

It’s been a real long time since I have seen your face
Been in your haunted space
I feel a dangerous magnetism to your side
Oh how I want to stay

Bring back the memories
This old forbidden place
I need another taste

Come on, just one more time
For an old lover’s sake
Yea it’s for old time’s sake
(It’s for my sake)

You’ve got your tricks
You flip the switch on
And I go back where I was with you a year ago

It never sticks, and just like clockwork
You’re gone again and I’m stuck with broken pieces of my soul

You’re trying hard to devour all my self control
No, I’m not in control
But I’m not gonna let you know
You’ve been the prettiest nightmare that I’ve ever seen

Bring back the memories
This old forbidden place
I need another taste

Come on, just one more time
For an old lover’s sake
Yea it’s for old time’s sake
(It’s for my sake)

You’ve got your tricks
You flip the switch on
And I go back where I was with you a year ago

It never sticks, and just like clockwork
You’re gone again and I’m stuck with broken pieces of my soul

Poison and Lace

You know you can’t deny it; it’s an in vain pursuit
When you realize that what you love doesn’t love you
When you avoid the mirror to avoid the disgrace
Of a perforated heart filled with poison and lace

You know you’re never clear from the errors you made
The toxin that you’re craving now is still in your veins
Your dependence is your downfall and it’s making you sick
It’s secret and cathartic, but consuming your will

Don’t ruin love (Don’t ruin love)
With the toxic kiss to a good name
Don’t want to be too tough (Don’t want to be too tough)
Don’t want to be cold

Cause when he’s had enough
It’s going to be too late for you to change
Your time is ticking up
In your poison laced with love

You left a bloody trail, can’t you see the disease
Is the twinkle in your eye and the fake heart on your sleeve?
And it’s getting kind of lonely sitting there by yourself
But you know you don’t deserve to be with anyone else

Don’t ruin love (Don’t ruin love)
With the toxic kiss to a good name
Don’t want to be too tough (Don’t want to be too tough)
Don’t want to be cold

Cause when he’s had enough
It’s going to be too late for you to change
Your time is ticking up
In your poison laced with love

One day you’re gonna look back
And wonder why you did this to yourself
time and time again
Don’t want to answer for that
You know you don’t want to be
Alone in the end

Be careful what you wish for because it just might come true,
The darkest dreams you dare to dream could happen to you
You’ll become the deepest fears you never could face
And fall asleep with your heart filled with poison and lace

 

Fighter

You stay true to me, and I try to be what you need, but I’m tired.
Speak all my words, but I”m still never heard, lost my fire
They say there’s always someone who loves more
And I wish it wasn’t me

We’re too young to be tired and too old to play games
Angels laughing when I rise ’cause they know that I’ll fall again
Too young to be tired
And too old to play games

Memories tied to the back of my mind, what’s it cost
To feel your warmth again instead of cold indifference
What’s going to happen to us?
They say there’s always someone who loves more
And I wish it wasn’t me

We’re too young to be tired and too old to play games
Angels laughing when I rise ’cause they know that I’ll fall again
Too young to be tired
And too old to play games

You stopped fighting with me but I still fight for you
Why do I waste my time if you don’t want to be here?
Could you give me a reason to stay?

We’re too young to be tired and too old to play games
Angels laughing when I rise ’cause they know that I’ll fall again
Too young to be tired
And too old to play games

Do you think I could be the one that you want to see, once again?
The promises we made, when we were young and unafraid, I have not forgotten
If all we are is broken, let us be a broken pair

We’re too young to be tired
And too old to play games

Counterfeit Love

Whisper after whisper
They sing your praise
Their voices resound
Like a choir of angels
Are you deafened by the sounds
Your itching ears are longing for
If you listen to the lies
They’ll always leave you wanting more

You’re in the arms of counterfeit love
A two-faced kiss from its fatal sweet lips
And you’re asking for this stab in the back
A little caring betrayal really isn’t so bad

Line by line
They distort absolutes
Until their words obliterate
Any hope of the truth
They sacrifice you to their ravenous agenda
Using your self-indulgence as the murder weapon

You’re in the arms of counterfeit love
A two-faced kiss from its fatal sweet lips
And you’re asking for this stab in the back
A little caring betrayal really isn’t so bad

You’re making out with the mouth of Hell
You’re telling me you’ve never felt so well
If you could only see yourself
You’d see the lies for which you fell

Tied in the arms of counterfeit love
It’s dignity you’re missing
Indisputably you’re fishing
You’re waiting for that stab in the back
A little caring betrayal really isn’t so bad

Sea of Forgetfulness

I walk on the shore where I left my past behind me
As memories wash away my foundation
I sort of recall what the crashing waves
Hide beneath your love and mercy
So I take a breath

I’m drowning in the sea of sin
Choking on every little mistake
I’m Anchored down by all my dirty deeds
So I hold my breath

A little deeper in
A little deeper in

The swells lift me up where the expanse is so clear
As the riptide pulls me farther, I can’t find you
I feel the undertow gripping at my soul
Remembering why I need your mercy
So I take a breath

I’m drowning in the sea of sin
Choking on every little mistake
I’m Anchored down by all my dirty deeds
So I hold my breath

A little deeper in
A little deeper in
A little deeper in
A little deeper in

I know that I’m love by you I know
I should be walking on the water with you
But I’m trapped in the trenches beneath
Where you locked my sins in the deep below down low
I’m cold and saturated but I can’t let go
So I hold my breath

A little deeper in

Fair Weather Night

It’s the sin behind the scenes
The biggest part of this show
My friend misery
Ms. Fortune’s sickening son
The roots are taking hold
Digging deeper in my soul
Choking off every part of me
An empty shell is what I’ve become

It’s what I do in the dark that makes me scared of the light
I never meant to become friends with the fair-weather night
Your sin will tie you down but the train is at distance
So I bud you adieu fair-weather night and good riddance

Only you can cut us down
Grind the stump into the ground
When I don’t practice what I preach
Pull the curtain and you’ll see
I’m not who I used to be
Burn the brittle branches from my tree
An empty shell is what I’ve become

It’s what I do in the dark that makes me scared of the light
I never meant to become friends with the fair-weather night
Your sin will tie you down but the train is at distance
So I bud you adieu fair-weather night and good riddance

Clean me
Graft me in
Liberate
My Soul again

It’s the sin behind the scenes
The biggest part of this show
The song that everybody sings
Is no longer haunting me
No room for misconception
My name is clear and so am I
I will no longer live that life
An empty shell is what I’ve become

It’s what I do in the dark that makes me scared of the light
I never meant to become friends with the fair-weather night
Your sin will tie you down but the train is at distance
So I bud you adieu fair-weather night and good riddance

Sirens

Wake up late cause I don’t sleep
Cause who can sleep when there’s no peace
Drilled in my insomniac mind
Are the terrors of this life
It’s not likely they’re all gonna find me

Somebody help me not think so much
I took a tumble down a rabbit hole
And now I’m out of touch
Help me turn off the sirens in my brain

Insecure always waiting for the other shoe to drop,
someday the good has got to stop
Blinded by the enemy’s lie that I could live the pain
of a hundred different lives
One more night I’ll face this fight

Somebody help me not think so much
I took a tumble down a rabbit hole
And now I’m out of touch
Help me turn off the sirens in my brain

Play it like a movie
But it’s only one scene
Running on a loop
And it always ends in tragedy

Play it like a movie
But it’s only one scene
Maybe it’s the price
of a life worth anything

Somebody help me not think so much
I took a tumble down a rabbit hole
And now I’m out of touch
Help me turn off the sirens in my brain

Hollow Lullaby

You sing soft and subtly
Your melody catches me
Your lyrics are getting stuck in my head
You voice, it makes me drift away
The night is calling out my name
Your lyrics getting stuck in my head

Tuck me in and kiss me goodnight
You can do it again maybe one more time
Sit by my bed singing your song
I want to indulge in the dark and twisted night
A little relief as I close my eyes
Forget your hollow lullaby is just lies lies lies lies

You’re a pied-piper leading me away
Your song lures me into your dream
Your verses are a promise you will break
Your words make me stay anyways

Tuck me in and kiss me goodnight
You can do it again maybe one more time
Sit by my bed singing your song
I want to indulge in the dark and twisted night
A little relief as I close my eyes
Forget your hollow lullaby is just lies lies lies lies

My eyes are getting heavy
But I won’t sleep a wink
My head nods to the rhyme
But I won’t slumber tonight
The sandman came at 12 A.M.
So we made a castle that I”ll never sleep in
But I’ll be fighting him until the sunrise
And so we become a new nation that falls
Your hollow lullaby is just lies lies lies lies

Tuck me in and kiss me goodnight
You can do it again maybe one more time
Sit by my bed singing your song
I want to indulge in the dark and twisted night
A little relief as I close my eyes
Forget your hollow lullaby is just lies lies lies lies
