Think. Create. But most importantly, stay alive.

Tag: Life

You split and
Take in every time you see
A fake and counterfeit
In the mirror you appear
To see fear
And whisper this is it
In the mirror you appear
To see nothing else
But yourself as a face
A hollowed out space
Hit me with the race
And just in case
I fall face down on the ground
And somehow I found
Enough strength to lift my face
And make a sound
And muffled though it may be
And crazy it seems
I never felt closer to you
Just crying as you torture me

It’s time to say goodbye
To the earth and now my worthless life
Cuz everything I’ve ever made
Is dead now
Inside the grave
I just don’t wanna be
So many things
And now that I see
I just wanna sing
I just wanna breath
I just wanna fly
I just wanna close my eyes
And take in the sun
And take in the air
I just wanna run
And murder my care
I wanna believe that I will be
Free as air

And I’m standing on a tower
Trying my hardest to make it
To you but I built this tower
Out of mortal bricks
Their breaking
I truly will surrender
My pretender
My disguise
And I’ll truly start to
Render to your splendor
So it’s time to say goodbye

It’s time to say goodbye
To the earth and now my worthless life
Cuz everything I’ve ever made
Is dead now
Inside the grave

Truce

Now the night is coming to an end,
The sun will rise and we will try again.

Stay alive, stay alive for me.
You will die, but now your life is free,
Take pride in what is sure to die.

I will fear the night again,
I hope I’m not my only friend.

Stay alive, stay alive for me.
You will die,
but now your life is free,
Take pride in what is sure to die.

Trapdoor

He wakes up early today
Throws on a mask that will alter his face
Nobody knows his real name
But now he just uses one he saw on a grave

He pretends that he’s okay
But you should see
Him in bed late at night, he’s petrified
Take me out, and finish this waste of a life

Everyone gather around for a show
Watch as this man disappears as we know
Do me a favor and try to ignore
As you watch him fall through a bleeding trapdoor

He thinks that faith might be dead
Nothing kills a man faster than his own head
He used to see dreams at night
But now he’s just watching the backs of his eyes

He pretends that he’s okay
But you should see
Him in bed late at night, he’s petrified
Take me out, and finish this waste of a life

Everyone gather around for a show
Watch as this man disappears as we know
Do me a favor and try to ignore
As you watch him fall through a bleeding trapdoor

Take me out, and finish this waste of a life

Everyone gather around for a show
Watch as this man disappears as we know
Do me a favor and try to ignore
When you watch him fall through a bleeding trapdoor
‘Cause nobody knows he’s alive

Friend, Please

I feel for you but when did you believe you were alone
You say that spiders crawled inside and made themselves a home
Where light once was
Petrified of who you are and who you have become
You will hide from everyone, denying you need someone
To exterminate your bones
Friend, please remove your hands from
Over your eyes for me I know you want to leave but
Friend, please don’t take your life away from me
Living like a ghost you walk by everyone you know
You say that you’re fine but you have lost your sway and glow
So I stopped by to let you know
Friend, please remove your hands from
Over your eyes for me I know you want to leave but
Friend, please don’t take your life away from me
Would you let me know your plans tonight
‘Cause I just won’t let go ’til we both see the light
And I have nothing else left to say
But I will listen to you all day, yes I will
Friend, please remove your hands from
Over your eyes for me I know you want to leave but
Friend, please don’t take your life away from me

Addict with a Pen

 Hello

We haven’t talked in quite some time
I know
I haven’t been the best
Of sons
Hello
I’ve been traveling in
The desert of my mind
And I
Haven’t found a drop
Of life
I haven’t found a drop
Of you
I haven’t found a drop
Of water

I try desperately to run through the sand
As I hold the water
In the palm of my hand
Cause it’s all that I have
It’s all that I need and
The waves of the water
Mean nothing to me
But I try my best
And all that I can to
Hold tightly onto
What’s left in my hand
But no matter how
How tightly I will strain
The sand will slow me down
And the water will drain
I’m just being dramatic
In fact,
I’m only at it again
As an addict with a pen
Who’s addicted to the wind
As it blows me back and fourth
Mindless, spineless, and pretend
Of course I’ll be here again
See you tomorrow
But it’s the end of today
End of my ways
As a walking denial
My trail was filed as a crazy
Suicidal head case
But you specialize in dying
You hear me screaming
Father
And I’m lying here just crying
So wash me with your water

Hello
We haven’t talked in quite some time
I know
I haven’t been the best

Share what this song means to you!

Fall Away

I don’t wanna fall, fall away
I don’t wanna fall, fall away
I’ll keep the lights on in this place
‘Cause I don’t wanna fall, fall away

I disguise
And I will lie
And I will take my precious time
As the days spent away
As I stand in line
And I die as I wait as I wait on my crime
And I’ll try to delay what you make of my life
But I don’t want your way,
I want mine
I’m dying and trying
But believe me I’m fine
But I’m lying,
I’m so very far from fine

And I can feel the pull begin
I feel my conscience wearing thin
And my skin
It will start to break up and fall apart

I don’t wanna fall, fall away
I don’t wanna fall, fall away
I’ll keep the lights on in this place
‘Cause I don’t wanna fall, fall away

Every time I feel selfish ambition
Is taking my vision
And my crime is my sentence
Repentance is taking commission
It’s taking a toll
On my soul
I’m screaming submission and,
I don’t know if I am dying or living
‘Cause I will save face
For name’s sake
Abuse grace
Take aim to obtain a new name
And a newer place
But my name is lame
I can’t walk and I ain’t the same
And my name became
A new destiny to the grave

And I, I can feel the pull begin
Feel my conscience wearing thin
And my skin,
It will start to break up and fall apart

I don’t wanna fall, fall away
I don’t wanna fall, fall away
I’ll keep the lights on in this place
‘Cause I don’t wanna fall, fall away

Screen

I do not know why I would go
In front of you and hide my soul
Cause you’re the only one who knows it,
Yeah you’re the only one who knows it

And I will hide behind my pride
Don’t know why I think I can lie
Cause there’s a screen on my chest
Yeah there’s a screen on my chest

I’m standing in front of you
I’m standing in front of you
I’m trying to be so cool
Everything together trying to be so cool
[x2]

I can’t see past my own nose, I’m seeing everything in slo-mo
Look out below crashing down to the ground just like a vertical locomotive
That’s a train, am I painting the picture that’s in my brain?
A train from the sky, locomotive, my motives are insane
My flow’s not great, okay, I conversate with people
Who know if I flow on a song I’ll get no radio play
While you’re doing fine, there’s some people and I
Who have a really tough time getting through this life
So excuse us while we sing to the sky.

I’m standing in front of you
I’m standing in front of you
I’m trying to be so cool
Everything together trying to be so cool
[x2]

We’re broken
We’re broken
We’re broken
We’re broken people, oh.
We’re broken people, oh.
[x3]

(We’re broken
We’re broken
We’re broken
We’re broken people, oh.
We’re broken people, oh.)
[x2]

I’m standing in front of you
I’m standing in front of you
I’m trying to be so cool
Everything together trying to be so cool
[x2]

House of Gold

She asked me, “Son, when I grow old,
Will you buy me a house of gold?
And when your father turns to stone,
Will you take care of me?”

She asked me, “Son, when I grow old,
Will you buy me a house of gold?
And when your father turns to stone,
Will you take care of me?”

I will make you queen of everything you see,
I’ll put you on the map,
I’ll cure you of disease.

Let’s say we up and left this town,
And turned our future upside down.
We’ll make pretend that you and me,
Lived ever after happily.

She asked me, “Son, when I grow old,
Will you buy me a house of gold?
And when your father turns to stone,
Will you take care of me?”

I will make you queen of everything you see,
I’ll put you on the map,
I’ll cure you of disease.

And since we know that dreams are dead,
And life turns plans up on their head,
I will plan to be a bum,
So I just might become someone.

She asked me, “Son, when I grow old,
Will you buy me a house of gold?
And when your father turns to stone,
Will you take care of me?”

I will make you queen of everything you see,
I’ll put you on the map,
I’ll cure you of disease.

Holding On To You

I’m taking over my body, back in control, no more shotty,
I bet a lot of me was lost, ‘t’s uncrossed and ‘i’s undotted,
I fought it a lot and it seems a lot like flesh is all I got,
Not anymore, flesh out the door, swat,
I must’ve forgot, you can’t trust me,
I’m open a moment and close when you show it,
Before you know it I’m lost at sea,
And now that I write and think about it,
And the story unfolds,
You should take my life, you should take my soul.

You are surrounding all my surroundings,
Sounding down the mountain range of my left-side brain,
You are surrounding all my surroundings,
Twisting the kaleidoscope behind both of my eyes.

And I’ll be holding on to you.

Remember the moment you know exactly where you’re going,
‘Cause the next moment, before you know it,
Time is slowing and it’s frozen still,
And the window sill looks really nice, right?
You think twice about your life, it probably happens at night, right?
Fight it, take the pain, ignite it,
Tie a noose around your mind loose enough to breathe fine and tie it,
To a tree, tell it, “You belong to me,
This ain’t a noose, this is a leash,
And I have some news for you, you must obey me.”

Entertain my faith.

Lean with it, rock with it,
When we gunna stop with it,
Lyrics that mean nothing, we were gifted with thought,
Is it time to move our feet to an introspective beat,
It ain’t the speakers that bump hearts, it’s our hearts that make the beat.

Tonight

The young boy wants to move ahead
And the old man sings rewind
I wonder when in this time line
We’ll break to the other side

Maybe there’s a span of time
When we feel we’re neither nor
Not wanting to go back again
And not wanting to go forth

The point in life must be
Pretty dark and hopeless
Terrifying
And if you’re asking me when that is

It must be tonight
It must be tonight
It must be tonight
It must be tonight

The old man sits all by himself
And thinks of better years
When he used to believe in stars
And would dream away his fears

The young boy moves so fast he doesn’t
See the stars above
And all his dreams are crushed by old man
Who didn’t dream enough

We must all agree
There’s a point in life when darkness breaks our
Brittle hopes and dreams
And I’d say

It must be tonight
It must be tonight
It must be tonight
It must be tonight

It must be tonight
It must be tonight
It must be tonight
It must be tonight
Stay with me

And it must be tonight
It must be tonight
Save me tonight
It must be tonight

Be Concerned

Where’d you go, huh?
They all think I know you,
It’s so hard to motivate,
Me to devote a,
Single inch of me to,
Something I can’t see I,
Don’t mean to pry but why,
Would you even make the eyes?
I don’t believe my ears,
And I’m scared of my own head,
I will deny you for years,
Then I’ll make you raise me from the dead,
And if I said that I would live for you,
For nothing in return,
Well I’m sorry Mr. Gullible,
But lying’s all I’ve learned,
So be concerned.

No music,
And I could talk about anything,
Whether or not it’s worth while,
Is based on who’s listening,
Most of us listen if it’s,
Something we can relate to,
All of us relate,
If it’s something we’ve just been through,
Take it for granted,
Trust is damaged and now we panic,
Living empty-handed,
Living lives like we can’t manage,
I can’t feel you,
But still know where home is feeling like Jonah did,
Almost dropped the bat like every base was fully loaded.
So be concerned.

I am disappearing,
Inside my bird’s eye theories,
I try to say goodbye, defy, and deny,
What it is I’m fearing,
Clearly I am dying, dearly I am writing,
Merely testifying, that the test to fly requires I,
Pass the test with colors flying,
I don’t believe you most the time,
I’m lying ’cause I say I am fine,
You are the pearl,
I am the swine,
So break my life and take this rhyme,
I’m so sorry but I do believe,
That all my bridges,
I have burned,
And I’ve earned a policy of no return,
So be concerned.

Glowing Eyes


We all are stranger creatures than when we all started out as kids,
Culture forbids,
We have romantic fantasies about what dying truly is,
To fall off the grid.

We live for the night’s decor,
It reveals what we dream of.

I know there’s someone at the door,
They called for help, of this I’m sure,
But do I want to say goodbye to all the glowing eyes,
I’m holding on to what I know,
And what I know, I must let go,
But I would rather play a song for the eyes to sing along.

We all know somebody who knows somebody who’s doing great,
I know some people who know people who are flying straight,
But I’ll kindly enter into rooms of depression,
While ceiling fans and idle hands will take my life again.

We live for the night’s decor,
It reveals what we dream of.

I know there’s someone at the door,
They called for help, of this I’m sure,
But do I want to say goodbye to all the glowing eyes,
I’m holding on to what I know,
And what I know, I must let go,
But I would rather play a song for the eyes to sing along.

This room is far too dark for us to stay around,
Redemption’s not that far and darkness is going down.
Make them stop.

I’m holding on to what I know,
And what I know, I must let go,
But I would rather play a song for the eyes to sing along.
Make them stop.

Lovely

You say things with your mouth
Cobwebs and flies come out
I hear a second voice behind your tongue somehow
Luckily I can read your mind
Flies and cobwebs unwind
They will not take you down
They will not cast you out.

Dear friend, here we are again pretending
To understand how you think your world is ending
Sending signals and red flags in waves
It’s hard to tell the difference between blood and water these days
I’ll pray that one day you see
The only difference between life and dying
Is one is trying, that’s all we’re called to do
So try to love me and I’ll try to save you.

Won’t you stay alive
I’ll take you on a ride
I will make you believe you are lovely.

Your redemption won’t grow stale
We are now just setting sail
On the seas of what we fear
Treason now is growing near to me

I’m coming clean
God, hit me straight on.

Don’t be gone.
You say things with your mouth, cobwebs and flies come out.
