Those Damn Crows - Point Of No Return

Artist: Those Damn Crows
Release: Point Of No Return


1. Who Did It

There’s a storm cloud coming to where we lay
Now the wolves are coming to greet their prey
And as we mourn
The strangers set camp on our doors
Questions have no meaning, it’s a story they want

The sun doesn’t shine
In this valley below
All the papers will say
They didn’t make it back home
All they want are their names
Don’t they have no shame
In a small old town where everyone knows
Who did it

As they all come crawling from under rocks
There’s a mother calling in a state of shock
As she mourns
Shattered life through a lens
Cut the cord
Greed and violations
It’s a story they want

2. Set In Stone

Don’t waste your time and breath on me
All darkest secrets leave a trail
No retreat to runaway
Cast no shadow, do I get a say?
What’s done is done, but you can’t change your past

I need no one
Damage done
Burn it to the ground
Burn it to the ground
Burn it to the ground
Sick of your rejection

I stand alone
Set in stone
Burn it to the ground
Burn it to the ground
Burn it to the ground
Choose my own direction

Takes its time, for the dust to settle
Can’t stand yourself, hard as metal
Cut to feel but feel so numb
Scream in silence, not the only one
Shape your fate but you can’t change your past

Past is set in stone
Past is set in stone
I’ve been waiting, suffocating

3. Sin On Skin

I feel it, I feel it
I feel it, it’s written all over my skin
But I want it, I want it, I want it
I know as it starts to begin
I’ve waited, I’ve waited to feel this good
I know there’s no turning back now

Break me down
Echoes of the past scream loud
Mind is trapped in here and now
The moment has arrived
And takes over…

I feel it, I feel it, I feel it
Your sin is all over my skin
But I want it, I want it, I want it
I know as I watch you give in
I’ve waited, I’ve waited to feel this good

So chain me down
Before it falls apart
Cause I don’t wanna break your heart
So hang on!

I feel it, I feel it, I feel it
Your sin is all over my skin
But I want it, I want it, I want it
I know as I watch you give in
I’ve waited, I’ve waited to feel this good

Hide the truth and watch you fall apart
It’s the lie that eats away your soul my friend
As it rots away and plagues your mind
The remains of who you are gets left behind

I can’t breathe no more as I touch your skin
Now your mark remains forever like all our sin

Seek and find
Cross the line
Sins combined
Only a matter of time
I feel it, I feel it

4. Be You

We have our reasons
We have a choice
It’s world’s illusion to give in
We wait for an answer
We wait for a sign
Well I’m done with the waiting
My only limit is time

You’ve gotta fight to be you
You got the right to be you
In a world that thrives on fear and loathing
Make a stand don’t let them silence you
I wouldn’t like to be you
Don’t tell me who I am!

Beautifully broken
Our fractured minds
Don’t let them fool you to fit in
A one way ticket, a one way ride
Well I’m done with the waiting
My only limit is time!

Free your mind, you free yourself!

Can’t you see the life you’ve chosen
It’s not you it’s the world that’s broken
Live your life by the words we’ve spoken
Free to be you, freedom through emotion

You’ve gotta fight to be you
You got the right to be you
In a world that thrives on fear and loathing
Make a stand don’t let them silence you
I wouldn’t like to be you
Don’t tell me who I am!

I wouldn’t like to be you

5. Never Win

If the stars all aligned in the clear night sky would you let me in?
If your heart was a home wasn’t made of stone could you let me in?
Cause the truth’s still untold, but we both surely know how this really ends
There are things left unsaid
As my heart, rules my head I will never win…
I will never win

If I worked to the bone, pay for all we own
Would you let me in?
How I count to three when you scream at me…
Won’t you let me in?
Cause I know how this goes, you’re a dying rose…
I will never win
There’s no more I can do I have proved to you…
I will never win

Cause the fire is slowly dying
There’s nothing I can do
There’s no one there besides me, just memories of me and you

If you gave up the game, who’s at fault, who’s to blame, could you let me in?
It’s like hide and seek, but you won’t find me, can’t you let me in?
The one I wanted most, all remains is your ghost…
I will never win…
I know the feeling, well I have failed again
I will never win…
I can never win

Cause the fire is slowly dying
Is there nothing I can do?
I know nothing lasts forever I thought together we can’t lose
Oh…. Can you picture life without me as I walk away from you
I know we were far from perfect but I fought so hard for you
Cause I know how this goes, you’re a dying rose, I will never win
Twisted, torn in two, I’m a fool for you
I will never win
I can never win

6. Send The Reaper

Hands up, I’m a sinner by trade
No excuses for the troubles I made
Some say I’m a little over the top
I bring chaos but I know what I’m not

No one can save you

Can’t stop, send the reaper
Won’t stop, getting weaker
Try and break the chain, bury all the pain
Can’t stop, send the reaper
Can’t stop, digging deeper
Won’t stop, the soul keeper
Borrow beg and steal, can’t we make a deal?
Can’t stop, send the reaper!

I’m a risk and don’t I know it
To myself and everyone around
The lost can’t be found at all

You’ll be sorry
You won’t see me cry
No more to be said
Just swallows me whole

Can you hear me
Can you hear me

7. Kingdom Of Dust

Kicking back in a hotel room
Time is not upon our side tonight
Out of sight
Sitting back watching her undress
The moment’s gone it feels like suicide
Run and hide

I thought what we had was stronger
Not often I’m wrong
Time’s right, hindsight, it’s all a mess
Cause I can find the rings we shared have turned to rust
Didn’t even think about us
Cause I confess, I’m about to fuck things up
The kingdom has turned to dust
Never be the same again

If you could, does it mean that you should?
If the door was open would you walk away?
There’s a price to pay

Out of mind, out of reach, out of luck
Could you give up, surrender all your worth?
Throw it all away

Like a moth to the flame
Watch it burn feel the pain
Something changed something died
As two worlds collide

The moment I did those things to ya
A new day, a new dawn
And I can’t undo all of this
Cause I can find the rings we shared have turned to rust
Didn’t even think about us
Cause I confess, I’m about to fuck things up
The kingdom has turned to dust
Never be the same the same again

8. Going Down

You can’t contain
She’s a hurricane lover
Head is spinning
As she’s going down

Can’t fight this feeling cause it’s like no other
I close my eyes
My feet are off the ground

I swear the rumours are true
Drain the life from out of you
Spit you out for someone new
Going down

Hell’s gate
Can’t escape this lover
She’s not stopping till she hears that sound
You can’t retain or sustain this woman
Gatekeeper in her own fairground

She’ll make a blind man see
Performs her miracle on me

Dirty drug
Angel of the darkest kind
Dirty drug
Eyes roll back, she’ll blow your mind
Lose myself, all sense of time
She’s my all time favourite drug
There’s no stopping her from going down

So hang on
She’s all your fantasies all rolled into one
It won’t be long, till she’s gone and she’s just a memory

Dirty drug
Angel of the darkest kind
Dirty drug
Eyes roll back, she’ll blow your mind
Dirty drug
Lose myself, all sense of time
She’s my all time favourite drug
Nothing hits quite like she does

Dirty drug
Perfection personified
Dirty drug
Can’t resist, my god, I’ve tried
Dirty drug
Yours for one night only
If you’re chosen then surrender
She’s already seen you coming
Second guess your innocence
There’s no stopping her from going down

9. Long Time Dead

Take your sticks and stones
And build a fortress just for me
I won’t let you in again
Learn how to let things go
Only then will you truly know
Life’s just a playground…
It’s time to play

Live now, it’s a long time dead
Now it’s all so clear to me
One shot’s all you really got take a chance

Live now, it’s a long time dead
Best things, no they won’t come easy
Choose your own track never look back again

One life’s all you got
Why wouldn’t you make the most of it?
Say yes to the things that scare you most
I’ll take what I can, I’m a grateful man
Raise your hand let me hear you say

It’s what I live for
Until my heart gives out
It’s not a trial run
And I don’t need ya!

10. King Of Second Chances

You think you got it all worked out?
Don’t hold your breath
You gotta break down to breakthrough
Learn to reset

Cause I don’t need no reason
For it to make some sense
It’s only me I believe in

Some day you’ll see
I’m the king of second chances
I’ll take the risk, to take it all
Some day you’ll see
We’re the kings of second chances
Not scared to fail, not scared to fall

I see the way you look at me
Rolling those eyes
I cause you confusion
I won’t compromise

You can’t see what I see
Don’t pretend you can
It’s only me that believes in me

Some day you’ll see
I’m the king of second chances
I’ll take the risk, to take it all
Some day you’ll see
We’re the kings of second chances
Not scared to fail, not scared to fall

Take me away from reality
Take me away from those eyes

Some day you’ll see
I’m the kings of second chances
I take the risk, to take it all
Some day you’ll see
We’re the kings of second chances
Not scared to fail, not scared to fall

11. Go Get It

Success is just a state of mind
Look deep inside, it’s there to find
Are you prepared to cross the line
To claim what’s yours, stop wasting time
As the walls close in

I know from the moment we started
Gotta know what you want
So you know what it takes.
Cause I know.. I believe that you got it
If you know what you want
Just go get it!

We’re all so scared to start again
Failure has been my closest friend
Reach down inside pull out the fear
Cause it holds you and it breaks you as you watch you disappear
Now the walls cave in

Rise up from the flames (gotta know it)
Wake up to the game (gotta own it)
Win, lose they’re the same (time to show it)
Can you break down the walls
Answer the call…. If you want it all!

12. Hey Man (Look At Me Now)

Waste no time, put it all on the line
I remember everything you said to me
Don’t you?
Watch as I add more fuel to fire
Watch it burn out as the flame it dies with you!

Reminisce, yeah I ain’t got time for this
I found my weakness, it was you

Hey man look at me now
Cause seeing is believing, take a good look around
Couldn’t picture this, wouldn’t miss this
Not for the world
Who’s had the last laugh now

All messed up I was under attack
Karma is the bitch that brought me back for good
Constant cravings driving me mad
Comes full circle, raised me from the dead

Screw all this, your ignorance is bliss
I’m a ticking time bomb made by you

Hey man look at me now
Seeing is believing, take a good look around
Couldn’t picture this, wouldn’t miss this
Not for the world
Ohhhhh
Hey man look at me now
Admit it, I did it, hand over the crown
Couldn’t picture this, wouldn’t miss this
Not for the world
Who’s had the last laugh now

Patience
We all need patience
But as my patience wears thin with you
Breathe in and start to take in
Started believing in what I do

Hey man look at me now
You had your minute, it’s time to move on now
Couldn’t picture this, wouldn’t miss this
Not for the world
Hey man look at me now
Admit it, I did it, hand over the crown
Couldn’t picture this, wouldn’t miss this
Not for the world
Who’s had the last laugh now

13. Devil In My Pocket

Race you to the turnstile
Chaos leads the way
Searching for the blue sky
Hides behind the grey
Sleeping in this cage, you better run before you lock it
Hear my plea, insanity, the devil’s in my pocket, c’mon…. Yeah

You? Me? Seem a little tongue tied
Step aside and let me show you how I play this game
You do exactly what you’re supposed to
But you will see when you’re with me,
You gotta live for tonight

Tonight… I’m bad
I’m all you have
Follow me, my voice, my way!
Hey now jump on board
I am the doctor, put you back on course
Now say, repeat after me… I’m not a saint!
The devil’s in my pocket!

You? Me? Bottom of the front nine
All hell breaks loose, let the fun begin
Ignite, set fire to the rocket
Heading down the rabbit hole and there’s no way to stop it

Tonight… I’m bad
I’m all you have
Follow me, my voice, my way
Hey now jump on board
I am the doctor put you back on course
Now say, repeat after me… I’m not a saint!
The devil’s in my pocket!

Am I living cause I can’t really tell
Living in a prisoner’s hell
A nobody to somebody!

Hear my plea insanity
The devil’s here inside of me
I’m heading down the rabbit hole and there’s no way to stop it
