lyrics

Piercing Burning Sleeping (Part 1)
Verse 1.
lets go, eyes open you’re broken and scared
seems like your vision’s impaired
can’t figure out who’s on your side.
who should you leave behind?
all the doors lead to nowhere.
and these stairs never end
you’ve got scars in your hearts
you know will never mend
but its time to make a choice.
of what will be your voice.
cause you can whine and cry and scream
until you freaking hoarse
but fighting back now that takes skill
no matter what type of dose or pill
you can fight this thing that holds you back
now get ready to attack
Chorus: Drama and Patrice Mayo
Better stick to your guns the battle isn’t won.
(The battle isn’t won the battle isn’t done.)
And if you give up soon I won’t know what to do.
(I wouldn’t know what to do I wouldn’t know what to say.)
These hearts are crying out this world is far from sane.
These words flow through your veins.
To help to ease the pain.
Verse 2.
Khaos Light:
(yeah, now check it)
sometimes I look at my life.
Wonder how I got this far?
Forget gone, I’ve been way done.
These battles just won’t be won.
My shattered mind has the tendency.
To exploit these insecurities.
That no one else would ever see but me.
(uhh)
I spent so many years. Keeping this Khaos inside.
(khaos inside)
Until I realized that I shouldn’t have to fucking hide.
(fucking hide)
I’m gonna let these scars be shown
(scars show)
and I’m gonna let this pain be known.
(pain known)
No more silence suffer.
I’m gonna make this life my own.
So own all your deformities.
Embrace your insecurities.
Brace yourself and stand up.
Its them vs you and me.
They call us the broken ones.
But best believe we’ll stand up.
No more razors on our arms.
It’s your throat we’re gonna cut.
Verse 3. Drama:
(ah.ah.ah. yuh)
i am the broken soldier,
whose purpose is to serve
and on this earth its give and take
so I’ve never earned
and please excuse me
if I’ve ever acted insecure
its from these barriers, in the air i breathe
and these words i slur
and if you do concur, steel strings and switch blades
expressions of my heart, so far
just oppression in my sleep
steep hills when i speak
sow what you reap, loneliness is what we eat
(yuh)
meal after meal, i still on the wheel
earth keeps turning, even if we die
I’m on that suicidal high tide mercy for my pride
everyday that we die is one more for the treason
i need that big room in that big house,
back home home with that thick spouse.
give gifts like saint clause.
(suicide but no way out)
trill shits what i stay bout,
stay stiff but i give clout
suicide but no way out(but I’m just a…) x5
Chorus. Drama and Patrice Mayo:
Better stick to your guns the battle isn’t won.
(The battle isn’t won the battle isn’t done.)
And if you give up soon I won’t know what to do.
(I wouldn’t know what to do,this world is far from sane.)
These hearts are crying out this world is far from sane.
These words flow through your veins.
To help to ease the pain.
Breakdown:
Better stick to your guns.
The battle isn’t won.
And if you give up soon.
I won’t know what to do.
These hearts are crying out.
This world is far from sane.
Let this words flow through your veins.
Ill help you ease the pain.
Outro. Khaos Light:
Keep passing those open windows.
That’s what John Irving said.
But its hard to hear those words.
When my minds screaming “you’re better off dead”
And my little one and my life.
Have both picked up that knife.
And though I preach again.
I still commit these acts in spite.
I’m a despicable, hypocritical, criminal
With words that drip cynical.
Somehow I’ll make this life hospitable.
For you and I and he and she and those who stand by me.
Like Riku I’m meant to be.
Control what’s dark within me.
Using my defects to protect and detect the ones affected And inflicted.
With crippling blows
By those who are vindictive.
And for my love.
You’ve got to be strong.
I know distant makes time feel long.
But in no time I will never be gone.
But then again like drama said.
I’m just a boy with dreams of a god.
To somehow clear away life’s fog.
