Lyrics

NOT INVISIBLE

Written By: Nailpoint

Not Invisible
You never thought that it would be like this
Just try to make another day
It takes every breathe for you to play this game
It costs so much but it’s the price you pay
Over looked and out of place again
Ignoring who you are just to fit in
But all that you wanted to be
Is hidden inside your identity
You try to believe what you want them to see
But I want you to know you’re not invisible
Sometimes opinions can feel like the truth
But you’ve gotta learn to let it go
With every word you have a choice to make
To let it bring you down or give you a chance to show
Everything you are and what you have to give
Waiting to be realized waiting to live
Cause all that you wanted to be
Is hidden inside your identity
You try to believe what you want them to see
But I want you to know you’re not invisible

I'LL DIE TRYING

Written By: Nailpont

I’ll Die Trying-

In these last days a deceptive age it’s easy to assimilate
On every side hell’s roaming to find who can be erased
It’s never easy in a darkened land
To all rise up and take a stand
I won’t back down any more even if I die trying
Cause I know what I’m fighting for and if I die trying then I’ll die trying
We must understand we have the upper hand in these final hours
Cause he’s made the way in this jar of clay lies all surpassing power
It’s never easy in a darkened land
To all rise up and take a stand
I won’t back down any more even if I die trying
Cause I know what I’m fighting for and if I die trying then I’ll die trying
I’ve been pressed on every side
I’ve been struck down and yet I try
I’ve been laughed at to my face
But I will stand
I won’t back down any more even if I die trying
Cause I know what I’m fighting for and if I die trying then I’ll die trying

ANGELS OVER YOU

Written By: Nailpoint

Angels Over You -

One thing before you go
It’s never easy but we both know
At times our lives can take different roads
And if so I want to leave this with you
If we never meet again I’ll still call you friend and to see you through
As you go on your way this is what I pray heaven’s watching with angels over you
Words can never be enough
Can never measure to this gift from above
Nothing is greater than our fathers love
And if so I want to leave this with you
If we never meet again I’ll still call you friend and to see you through
As you go on your way this is what I pray heaven’s watching with angels over you

CLOSE YOUR EYES

Written By: Nailpoint

Close Your Eyes -

I hide my face each time you pass me by
Cradle these secrets that I try to hide
So why do you keep asking me you know I can’t let go
Haunted by my shame I’ll face this on my own
But you already know and it’s breaking your heart
Will you love me the same I’m asking
Close your eyes as I serenade the devil tonight
Close your eyes I know you love me but right now my love is blind will you
Close your eyes so you don’t see what I’m trying to hide
Close your eyes just one more time close your eyes
This thing I’m holding has a hold of me
A grip so tight it’s getting hard to breathe
And it’s killing me so violently I never meant for you to see
This guilty pleasure that is suffocating
But I want you to know that I’ve fallen apart
Will you love me the same I’m asking
Close your eyes as I serenade the devil tonight
Close your eyes I know you love me but right now my love is blind will you
Close your eyes so you don’t see what I’m trying to hide
Close your eyes just one more time close your eyes just one more time
Close your eyes how can you love me
Close your eyes all of the times I fail
chorus

AMERICAN NIGHTMARE

Written By: Nailpoint

American Nightmare -

A big house and a picket fence spending all my cash and all my sense
Come on without innocence
Just three more is all I need hey Mr. Jones are you keeping up with me at all
Take a look at me
Oh it’s the American nightmare
Waking up and you can’t afford to be there
Oh the American nightmare
Living the dream not what it seems American nightmare
Want weighs more than what you need and need is second to fantasy
Come on where’s reality
Jealousy feeds a life of greed swallowed up by the money machine
And all your dreams aren’t what they seem no
Oh the American nightmare
Waking up and you can’t afford to be there
Oh the American nightmare
Living the dream not what it seems American nightmare
