Escape Myself

Verse: A lifetimes scrutiny no longer phases a thousand nights spent in these drunken hazes the emptiness so vast – the goodtimes never last no time for people and their changing faces Chorus: if you could just for one day come and take my pain away then I would give my all just to be with you… and if I could be anyone else – just to escape from myself then I would give my all just to be with you… Verse: It seems that time keeps slipping through her fingers she chokes on the memory that still lingers she hungers for his kiss – for one last taste of…

Choices (Mk. II)

Verse: They were hoping you weren’t inside But it’s a price you’ll have to pay Laying by the table in red & white Looking like you gave it away Bridge: I’ve been building up the walls with my hate inside I’ve been standing in the shadows with my face to the light And so soon – me & you… I’ve been running through your nerves til’ they made up my mind I’ve been going through your choices at the end of a knife And your face- it has to be mine I’ve been building up the walls with my hate inside I’ve been standing in the shadows with my face…

9th Circle

Verse: How much silver bought that one last kiss?

Dirt

Verse: All of the wasted hours I put myself out for you You’re always there for me whenever theres something for you Running around in circles- I was hooked upon your line Give up my heart for breaking- whenever you can find the time Bridge: If I’m your one and only – I’m yet to see the proof why did it take so long – for me to see the truth? Verse: Times I swore I’d never forget seem so vague and so small Seems like you give me nothing – whereas I give you my all Drinking of you so deeply- how I suffer for a taste Left feeling…

Premonition

Verse: You like to think you are the original- no one ever could top you- you say… all your lies they’re all coming back to haunt you- you’ll just plead innocense! Chorus: Of course I owe you everything- the whole world owes you everything- you must get it off your chest Your love it is so hollow, your friendships are so shallow- time to lay your green eyes to rest Verse: Truly a saint is here upon the earth in front of me- this guy is everybodys friend- he says… But others love has got a bitter taste and not one that you can take- you have to claim it…

Some Kind of Saviour

Verse: Why…why bother… pandering myself to your whims You…see sorrow… even in all of these good deeds I…I struggled to reach out to another side of you You close your eyes- to anothers help and point of view Bridge: I can’t fix you and I can’t take this now… Chorus: I can’t give you everything I won’t sit and take the blame X2 I can’t be some kind of saviour Only you can end your own pain Post Chorus: Why don’t you believe I’m trying You don’t believe that I am trying Verse: Words…now spoken- sadly tore our chances in two Hurt…and broken- speaking thoughts to try and stay true…

Serpentine

Verse: I can not win My words betray Must I give up these dreams Must I cast my hopes away? Bridge: I’m not quite sure if it’s deception should I head in this direction?
