Lyrics

Hooked

Written By: Sekshun 8


I have taken too much tonight
And it’s only a matter of time
Before I end up on the last page of my life

I should have turned my head
I should have walked away
The consequences of being alone in a world I can’t explain

Nowhere to rest my skin, and I am so cold
My world is crashing down, some one please take me home
Someone to take my hand, and I am so cold
My life is out of control

And we should split it in half
‘Cause misery loves company
Until all that’s left of us is a burned out dream

I should have turned my head
I should have walked away
The consequences of being alone in a world I can’t explain

Nowhere to rest my skin, and I am so cold
My world is crashing down, some one please take me home
Someone to take my hand, and I am so cold
My life is out of control

Can anyone help me?
And I know this damned addiction is getting old.
And I know my conflicted story’s told.

Whispers and fingers they point to me
And I won’t see until I believe
That the weight of my heart is much bigger than it seems

Nowhere to rest my skin, and I am so cold
My world is crashing down, some one please take me home
Someone to take my hand, and I am so cold My life is out of control

Blackwing Butterfly

Breaking my heart over your knees
Like you , I don’t give up that easily
Tearing your frown with laughter when you cry
Wake up my sister don’t you even waste my time

‘Cuz I am the one who gave you your name
No one can dance over your fame

Did it for the pennies down the wishing well
Soaring throught the dreadful red sky
You Blackwing Butterfly

Halo of flies rubbing your dirty hands
Waiting for me to waste my only chance
Reflected in a mirror I broke long ago
Anger just builds up but it never seems to make the show

‘Cuz I am the one who gave you your name
No one can dance over your fame

Did it for the pennies down the wishing well
Soaring through the dreadful red sky
You blackwing butterfly

Pushing my love to the cliff of extinction
Crippled by my innocence
Cutting my tongue of I cant say her name
Pretty dreadful, you’re the one to blame

Waiting for nothing in the final end
Playing the game that no one will ever win
