Lyrics

In My Head

Written By: Adelleda

There is a place where I can go to hide
Into this place I simply close my eyes
Its in my head
Don't lose control

Implausible Denial

Written By: Adelleda

I heard your name today for the first time In ten god damn years
Now I’m starting to get restless
It’s not so hard when we can walk away Then stay away from you
And all the pain you put us through

Speak your name it’s like where back together in Hamilton
And only everything has changed
You always said that you’d be clean again it never ends
Now that everything has changed

You won’t put us through the pain again
You won’t put us through it

I heard your name today for the first time In ten god damn years
Now I’m starting to get restless
It’s gotta be hard when you can’t run away Can’t put it down
All the shit you put in your veins

We’re gonna try We’re gonna try to pick you up Pick you up again

I heard your name today for the first time In ten god damn years
Now I’m starting to get restless

Speak your name its like where back together in Hamilton
And only everything has changed
You always said that you’d be clean again it never ends
Now thats everything has changed
You won’t put us through the pain again
You won’t put us through it

The cross you wear how can it feel the same
After killing and destroying those who stepped into your path
How can you say that you are born again
All the sacrificial children and the bodies that remain

You are a homicidal killing machine
You are the reason for the pain and suffering

A tribal war fighting naked in your name
Warrior children high on smack drinking the blood of innocent
Now you speak out claiming you are born again
Hide your sins behind religion still the history remains

You are a homicidal killing machine
You are the reason for the pain and suffering

Don’t preach to us about forgiveness We know who you really are

The people never forgive the people never forget

The people never forgive... pain
The people never forget

I won’t forgive you
I can’t forgive you
I won’t forgive you
The devil won’t forget

The cross you wear how can it feel the same
After killing and destroying those who stepped into your path
How can you say that you are born again

Let Them Speak

Written By: Adelleda

Riots in Tunisia wanting to be free
Self-Immolation is the price you have to pay
Streets are on fire now violence starts to peak
The youth of our world just want freedom of speech
Let them speak

Libyan uprising after 42 years of shit
The people of North Africa have had enough of it
Government crackdown mercenaries in the streets
How many have to die for the freedom of speech
Let them speak

Don’t care anymore cause this is gonna be
The last stand we make for social liberties
Don’t care anymore cause if I die at least
I’ll go down in flames I’ll go down in flames

Freedom don’t exist in a Police State
Strict social controls care of your government
The power of choice is with us everyday
So make the most of it all before its taken away

Riots in Toronto
Somebody has to pay
This will be the last stand we make for social liberties

Just A Shame

Written By: Adelleda

We can never be in love
We never really cared
To move beyond the conversations
We had never really known
The end would come so soon
And now I have to watch you slip away
Reduced to just a shell of who I knew
Reduced to just a mess of wires and tubes
The smile you wore now thrown away
Your laugh and love now turned to dust
Lose your soul and self-destruct
And now its such a shame

Why can’t you stop
Why can’t you see
That you are slowly dying
What can’t you quit
Just walk away
I see you slowly dying

5 Months In England

Written By: Adelleda

It’s 2am on a cold Friday
I pick her up from the airport
It’s been months since she’s been away

The drive home is oh so quiet
It’s like she knows what I’m thinking
And if we talk she’ll just end up crying

Sister says she don’t even want to see me
She says to keep my distance
And let her do some thinking

5 months in England has thrown my life to pieces so lets do some drinking

Now I’m drunk as fuck and alone now
Living my life like the broken man that I’ve become
I guess it didn’t work out the way you’d think Ben
Maybe I’m the one who was wrong

5 months in England has thrown my life life to pieces so lets do some drinking

Champion

Written By: Adelleda

Take this city I’ll take these broken bones
We’ll win this fight and take these streets cause its our home
Take this city I’ll take my fucking chances
Stand up for where I’m from
My friends my scene my Champion

Take this city I’m your Champion
This is my home

It’s not the same unless you smell it in her streets
The taste of harbour waters
I’m coming home
So much is riding on the honour of your name
The heart of Steel City
My life my dreams my Hamilton

Take this city I’m your Champion
This is my home

Take this city
I’ll take yours
Take this city
Champion

Don't Worry I'm Drunk

Written By: Adelleda

Another stupid mistake another one night stand
Another child is born who’ll never understand,
That mommy’s not that smart and daddy’s not around,
With kids raising kids what did you expect?

“Don’t worry I’m drunk” is what their mother says,
And pacifies her kids with the internet,
Born into this world without a fighting chance,
This cycle will repeat through their ignorance

What you expect is what you get
What did you expect?
Never looked at it through their own eyes
When all you’ve know is a life of disappointment

So now we ask ourselves “how can this cycle change”
How can we protect the kids of idiots?
A lowered self-esteem with no sense of pride,
The hopelessness at home that will destroy their lives

They keep their senses numbed and drink away their pain,
The only thing they learned from the mom they love,
At night they lay in bed and close their eyes to prey
“Don’t worry i’m drunk” is all they hear her say
