1. Shoot The Arrows

Been greeted with a smile
In my back twists the knife
So quick to flip the switch
Never know quit what hit
Behind the lines you know
True colors always show
Forget that you exist
The hand that feeds cut off at the wrist
Hate spreads like infection
Two faces yet you see one

Hey, shoot the arrows
As I turn to go
Know one day when most of us are gone
Shoot the arrows
Holding on to what you feel is true
And it’s killing you

Fed up for so long
I’ve let go watch, you hang on
When did lost trust begin
As soon as I decide to let you in
This took a part of me that will never return you see
I’ve grown cold and hollow
The hurt that’s caused I’ll never let it show

Total lack of devotion
In you I have no faith
There’s no way that you ever could have known
I would stoop so low
Don’t tell me you wouldn’t do the same thing
And I know all the games you play
Think hard ’cause now it starts to eat at you
There’s nothing else to do
What’s done is done
You hold on to what you feel is true and now it’s killing you

2. Barricades In Time

Eyes are still red, coming apart
Lies won’t take me far
Body aches, these hands shake
Dealing comes with scars
I’s hard to sleep with all that’s questioned

Can I find peace of mind?
Barricades in time
Can I find peace inside?
And let love come save my life

Try to forget feelings of death invading panic spawns
Can’t concentrate, no one relates
Stealing all the light

Spreading thin a soul in sections
The enemy is my own thinking
I never let it show
The weight on me I am sinking
I fight this more than you know!

Can I find peace of mind
Barricades in time
Can I find peace inside and let love come save my life
Can I find peace of mind if you ask everything is fine
Can I find peace inside as I deal with my own strife!

3. Tornado

A screaming match again
Could this be the end
A breaking point and I can’t bear it
You wanna know the truth
The map to life is long
I’ve taken every wrong direction
Writing on the wall
Love once strong now falls
I’m staring into space
And drowning under my decisions

Wonder how you can sleep at night
Having lied to these eyes
You could feel the relief
Lying awake at night
Wonder and know at the same time
To know his face and his name
Made me lose my mind
Fell apart for the last time
The signs neglected but seen
And thanks to you
My conscience finally feels clean

I brought you into this
You blame me over that
We fight each others accusations
You wanna know the truth
The truth is I’m afraid
Afraid of going nowhere always
Writing on the wall
Love once strong now falls
We’re burning in the flames
Covered with the scars of our love

Wonder how you can sleep at night
Having lied to these eyes
You could feel the relief
Lying awake at night
Wonder and know at the same time
To know his face and his name
Made me lose my mind
Fell apart for the last time
The signs neglected but seen
And thanks to you
My conscience finally feels clean

Lately
You just can’t wait see
Wait see
To make me hate me
Hate me
And maybe we just don’t belong
Again
Is this the end

After what you put me through
I feel nothing for you

Wonder how you can sleep at night
Having lied to these eyes
You could feel the relief
Lying awake at night
Wonder and know at the same time
To know his face and his name
Made me lose my mind
Fell apart for the last time
The signs neglected but seen
And thanks to you
My conscience finally feels clean

4. Sevenfold

Taste, you left a bitter taste in my mouth
That will never heal
True self revealed unkind
You can never press rewind
You play the part that’s so unreal, repercussions
Now pay the price!

Watch me walk away
Done talking now
Bridges burned yesterday
Won’t put them out
Never heard a single word
Done talking now
Try to get through to me won’t happen now
I find that you’ll get it back sevenfold decisions in your life
I’m gonna get it back sevenfold, bury me alive

Right, you’re always on the right
You’re adversaries left the field signed and sealed
Lost sight, you cannot lead the blind
You point your finger filled with steel
Your huge ordeal denied!

You’ve been riding so high on one big lie
All these years, denied all my cries
Never thought you’d hear all these years
So crystal clear, you’ll cry the same tears
We all did all these years!

5. Planets

Despite these imperfections
Despite all I say
Insight and recollection, I’m done with yesterday

I will lose my mind and make it real this time
To leave it all behind
I won’t cry wolf
Show me a sign, planets will align
I’m gonna blow my mind
I won’t cry wolf

The one I trusted sold me
This is overblown
But I didn’t want to believe everyone I trusted deceived me

I will lose my mind and make it real this time
To leave it all behind
I won’t cry wolf
Show me a sign
Planets will align
I’m gonna blow my mind
I won’t cry wolf

I figured out I’m holding on too tight and I can’t let go
I’m hiding, I’m needy, on the inside
I’m bleeding, I’m searching for something
But it can’t seem to find me

On the surface there is someone that pretends to focus
I’m waiting and wanting
Too confused to go on trying to live
When the pain can all be gone
Conforming to confusion, the voice in my head
Leading me here back home

6. Enter The Cage

You’ll hear them breaking bones
Silently pacing
All fear erased here
It’s time to face it
Cold sweats profusely
Crowd chanting loudly
Keep all eyes on me
One goal pursuing
One thought consuming

Now you’re stepping inside where you can’t be afraid
It’s a matter of pride when you enter the cage

You’ll hear them breaking bones
No excuse will suffice
Deadly, quick and precise
Trained for this moment, no one else can own it
Keep all eyes on me
One goal pursuing
One thought consuming

Now you’re stepping inside where you can’t be afraid
It’s a matter of pride when you enter the cage
Put your heart on the line it determines your fate
It’s a matter of pride when you enter the cage

You’ll hear them breaking bones
Inside this octagon, eight sided nightmare just begun
Warriors modern battle ground
Can’t let him get me down
No noise just quiet now
One goal pursuing
One thought consuming

Now you’re stepping inside where you can’t be afraid
It’s a matter of pride, when you enter the cage
Put your heart on the line, it determines your fate
It’s a matter of pride when you enter the cage
Get tapped out when you enter the cage!

7. Remember

I’ll make you a promise today
That this family I’ll never betray
Life sometimes fades away
Night is upon us
And I hope that this one never ends
The face of a woman whom I loved before I was a man
I’m making some time and I’m honest
In pain we can live ’til the end
You know you’re on my mind
And I promise that I’ll see you some day
But for now I’ll just pray

Can’t believe it’s over
Life just gets in the way
Your eyes were upon us
There are no words for how much that meant
This trace of my mother and not enough days that we spent
It was my selfish pride
And you taught us there was no one to blame in the end
Bitter feelings reside, and it caught us
Before that day we set everything straight

Can’t believe it’s over
Life just gets in the way
I remember the words that you said
Hearing them as I sat by your bed
Now life just gets in the way
Feeling the same everyday without you
Can’t seem to find my way
Cold sweats in the night wake me
Sleep thinking you’re alright!

Life just gets in the way
I remember the words that you said
Hearing them as I sat by your bed
Now life just gets in the way

I’ll make you a promise today
That this family I’ll never betray
Life sometimes fades away

8. Chel

True I wasn’t there for you
Sorry that I hurt you deeply
Too young to know what to do
Sixteen and I had no worries
When I saw that picture of you
I had to find the daughter I never knew

My absence grows
I reap what I’ve sewn
These mistakes are my own
All this anger let it go

Locked behind those bars you bloom
Wish there was a way I could help you
Too young to know what to do
Lessons learned and points you’ve proven
This love is complicated and bruised
Realise what makes me makes you

My absence grows
I reap what I’ve sewn
These mistakes are my own
All this anger let it go

I know I’m not a lot
I was never a saint
Got to take what you got ’cause I’m nothing you ain’t
If I gave you the world, would you throw it away?
Better keep your chin up, living life for today

You can abuse it
You can misuse it
You can go right back down that line
You can’t escape it, never erase it
Now you know I’ll be here
Your future fading
Understand what I’m explaining
Your future’s fading!

My absence grows
I reap what I’ve sewn
These mistakes are my own
All this anger let it go

Little one can’t you see
I want to let you know, don’t you be like me

9. Until Now

I knew you all my life
Though only through my dreams
Look inside your mind and see what’s on mine
Calling out my name
I see you there, this frozen cold
It isn’t fair
How much of this pride will I spare

We both are seething
All I know is to act now and hold on
This one’s the real one
Just calm down
Don’t look back
This is what we never had
I never felt so alive ’til I saw blue eyes
Until now it wasn’t hard to leave
I’m wanting more

Everyone around but still alone
Try to grasp losing the flow
Use a single emotion
You left me totally motionless
So quick, so soft
Like a thief in the night came here and changed my life

Everyday the same
Just sit and stare
Will I see you up in the air
These separate lives we don’t share again
I’m leaving
All I know is to act now and hold on

This one’s the real one
Just calm down, don’t look back
This is what we never had
I never felt so alive ’til I saw blue eyes
Until now it wasn’t hard to leave
I’m wanting more
I thought all this time I would end up alone
Beside you I lay and watch you breathing

10. Rise Above

The last year and a half I walked out on familiar faces
Had to cut some losses
Learned to never be complacent
I searched for some answers but the bottle couldn’t show them
Which took me to some places I never should have been

I found that true friends may be the ones you rarely hear from
‘Cause many said they’d be here but now they can’t be found
Learning sometimes means soul searching
There are no words to calm that kind of hurting

I never considered myself fortunate
Bowing to circumstance
Searching where to place the blame
Selling myself short
Looked right in the mirror, faced down all my fears
I will rise above

The endless thoughts that fed the sleepless nights, repeating
Almost let me give up the only hope I ever had
Trusting too quickly can end up being costly
Because many people fooled me
Maybe I just wanted to believe.

I never considered myself fortunate
Bowing to circumstance
Searching where to place the blame
Selling myself short
Looked right in the mirror, faced down all my fears
I will rise above

The world can be so cold when you step into the unknown
The streets all look familiar, that just multiplies the danger
There is one thing that’s for certain
There’s no one you can count on
The change occurs inside you
Got to make you own way

11. Better Living Through Chemistry

One little request changes life for your best interest
No need for self control while doctors line their pockets
One for your pain and one for your mind
Reliant, not addicted, it’s fine
One to lose weight and make you look right
One day there will be one for these lies!

Of course feeling numb is habit forming
No matter what’s wrong they’ll set you free
Better living through chemistry
Prescriptions for rent if you need relief
Better living through chemistry

Every place I turn my eye, new drug marketing line
The cure for everything is just around the corner
This dealer wears a name tag here to fill our order
One for your pain and one for your mind
Reliant, not addicted, it’s fine
One to lose weight and make you look right
One day there will be one for these lies!

Of course feeling numb is habit forming
No matter what’s wrong they’ll set you free
Better living through chemistry
Prescriptions for rent if you need relief
Better living through chemistry

Patients are paychecks just looking for the kickback
Money is the motive and corruption is the tool of their trade
Greed has taken over the hollow heart of health care
No longer taking chances, they’ve given up on us
We are the only ones that can end epidemics like this
Stand up, now that you know!

12. Refusing Consciousness

It’s so hard to watch you struggle
Even harder when I have to see you stumble
Short tempers, harsh words that humble
Watching the world around me crumble

Patience breaks, heart aches
Anger flies, still we try
I won’t fight back, can’t give in
Won’t stay here forever like this
Confusing my senses, again

Like a brother, like a sister
Something like a family
I was so lonely but you saved me
Insecurities race through my heart
New situation, realising my part
Demeanors change like the seasons
We’re fighting our own addictions

Patience breaks, heart aches
Anger flies, still we try
I won’t fight back, can’t give in
Won’t stay here forever like this
Refusing consciousness to drown in
To cope with, inebriate
To find when waking
That nothing has been changed

Take one more drink, you can’t live without it
Take one more drink
Take one more drink, or drown without it
Take one more drink

So hard to talk about it
Harder to know that you lie about it
Stand there and watch you shake without it
Losing sleep at night and still dream about it

I won’t fight back, can’t give in
Won’t stay here forever like this
Refusing consciousness to drown in
To cope with, inebriate
To find when waking
That nothing has been changed

13. Vikraphone

You’re not thinking with your mind
You’ll remember, we’ll surrender
General fine, unspoken and uninspired
Your orders spoken, your orders broken

Vikraphone!
Your mind’s made up
Vikraphone
You won’t give it up
Vikraphone, this is what you’ve got inside
Your vikraphone
You won’t stop us, you can’t stop us!

Lights left blinking, turn off tonight
Here’s forever, aren’t you clever asinine
You don’t know, and never mind
Doors left open, you won’t be closing

Vikraphone!
Your mind’s made up
Vikraphone, you won’t give it up
Vikraphone
This is what you’ve got inside
Your vikraphone
You won’t stop us, you can’t stop us!

Hold in your hand and believe what you say
In the light of the dark you will soon find your way
And it’s cool, we can smile
Hope to see you one day
No remorse no regrets
We were lost in the way
You’re no fool, you’re just you
Here’s the truth and believe
It’s the youth we obtain by the bonds that we breed
It’s a ball and a world
Where the sky is our space in this freedom we live
You won’t stop us, you can’t stop us!

14. Estrellas

[Metallica – The Thing That Should Not Be cover]

Messenger of fear in sight
Dark deception kills the light
Hybrid children watch the sea
Pray for father, roaming free

Fearless wretch
Insanity
He watches
Lurking beneath the sea
Great old one
Forbidden site
He searches
Hunter of the shadows is rising
Immortal
In madness you dwell

Crawling chaos underground
Cult has summoned twisted sound
Out from ruins once possessed
Fallen city, living death

Fearless wretch
Insanity
He watches
Lurking beneath the sea
Timeless sleep
Has been upset
He awakens
Hunter of the shadows is rising
Immortal
In madness you dwell
In madness you dwell

Not dead which eternal lie
Stranger eons, death may die
Drain you of your sanity
Face the thing that should not be

Fearless wretch
Insanity
He watches
Lurking beneath the sea
Great old one
Forbidden site
He searches
Hunter of the shadows is rising
Immortal
In madness you dwell
