Lyrics

Smile From a Veil

Written By: Alex Khoury

To hide is to lie and that's a sin man
Be yourself and no one else.
I'm known for my manipulation
Full control Like vertigo GO!
Were holding up our reputations
Choose the way that people say...

Smile from a veil.. smile from a veil is what we do.
Smile from a veil.. smile from a veil but for who?

Your hopes' my joke! Faith in religion?
Faith in I !....... not in the sky.
Now go by your own intuition
A freer thought .... that cant be taught.

Smile from a veil.. smile from a veil is what we do.
Smile from a veil.. smile from a veil but for who?

This symbols' self-realization
It took some time to see its mine.
Were all so Lost! Premeditation??
We try to plan what can't be planned.

Chorus

The Ballad Of Whats to Come

Written By: Alex Khoury

Beyond belief im bare to bare the banner of the bard.
Barren are the barricades of banter though they're barbed.
Bias are the beauracrats so biggoted and bland.
By the bricks of benefits... My beacon is my band.
Brave the boundaries of belief belated it may be!
Bona fide you break the brink of creativity!
Bid your brain a bold goodbye and banish any blame.

Its the ballad of whats to come. I hope that you'll be stunned
with the man that i've become. I cant help but hesitate.... because i want to be great! I want to be great.

Boycott all the bulky burdens breaching from behind, and
Banish all the booming blizzards blowing through your mind.
Bowing to the black because you know you dont belong.
Ignorance is Bliss.... but bliss just feels so wrong!
The bullets of the battlefield are bursting brutally.
Breathing is a blessing that I never knew to be.
Bring to bear a lesson..... Learn to play the game.

Buy Me

Written By: Alex Khoury

Well Ill never be a part of this music scene
I won't straighten my hair or wear maybelline
How do you scream with such skinny jeans? Oh where have we gone..
Wrong to me, is it wrong to you
That image is outweighing talent?
The scene is to me what I want it to be at least until you

Buy Me... Tear out my heart
Mold Me... Make me a star
Rob me... to pay off your car
Want me... and I will conquer the charts

Well I'm trying to make it big in Nashville, Tennessee
I've got three different bands sitting next to me
What are your names? You all look the same. You all sound just like
Me and you the things that we could do, so never give up on your passions
Ill stand dignified, holding my pride at least until you
Buy Me, I Pod me enough
Myspace is your space, there's nothing in between
American Dreams
The Silver Screen

Buy Me... Tear out my heart
Mold Me... Make me a star
Rob me... to pay off your car
Want me... and I will conquer the charts

Choices

Written By: Alex Khoury

I just can't sleep... Tonight
Just can't speak my mind
So Confused.... Distraught
It's All For You... It's not
It's not It's not

I'll Make Choices So My Voice Is Heard,
But Not For Her.
And My Voice Depends on Choice
I Wont Choose For You

I just won't bleed... For you
I just can't see this through
So ashamed of you
of you, of you

I'll Make Choices So My Voice Is Heard,
But Not For Her.
And My Voice Depends on Choice
I Wont Choose For You

Lord... My God... Talk to me
So... I... can believe
I just can't sleep... Tonight
Just can't speak my mind
Tonight Tonight

I'll Make Choices So My Voice Is Heard,
But Not For Her.
And My Voice Depends on Choice
I Wont Choose For You

One More Step

Written By: Alex Khoury

"One More Step"

One more step, before these walls collapse, and it holds me back from you.
I'm so sure about how unsure you are when you look at me.
I'm so sure when you walk that door, I know who I'm burning for...
I said One Step closer to you, Closer to you, Now its your move.
One more step this ones for me, Closer to you, Now its your move.
Awkward moments of feelings flowing, my eyes are growing for you.
These butterflies make me feel alive and I know you feel them too.
I said One Step closer to you, Closer to you, Now its your move.
One more step this ones for me, Closer to you, Now it's your move.
One More Step Closer To You, Closer to You
Now I Can't Move....... Now it's your move.
