Lyrics

War Within

Written By: Blameshift

Raise your guns up to the sky
Write a letter say goodbye
I have tried so hard and failed myself
There's a war inside of me
It's a sleeping enemy
The bitter fight is on, behind these lines
And I'm not ready

As far as I run
I'm the only one I'm running from
Take everything from me
Just leave me yesterday
As far as I run
I'm the only one I'm running from
Take everything from me
This isn't who I want to be

Grab a hold these prison bars
I'm locked behind these fallen stars
Held here captive by my own, intensions
Face to face the mirrors lies
The soldier fights the soldier dies
The wounds will have to mend
Before they do, this race will have to end

As far as I run
I'm the only one I'm running from
Take everything from me
Just leave me yesterday
As far as I run
I'm the only one I'm running from
Take everything from me
This isn't who I want to be

Twisting my arms I've come to, the breaking point
As I lay here I'm given, my final choice
Running from myself until
I see a reason to stand still
I will find my way, I will find it

The Syosset Polka

Written By: Blameshift

You hear like everything I say
Then turn and walk away
Do you feel what I feel

And your lips, they try to say
That everythings ok
Do you feel what I feel

Your holding on
I can't pretend to feel the way you do
Its fading

Broken and tied to your name
I'll never be the same
Broken inside myself
You've been here all this time
I'll never forget you

And the scent of you will haunt my memory

And the thought of you still haunts my memory

And then I scream your name and I know your listening

I'm taking back what I really need
(I thought you said you needed me)
You made your bed now go lie in it
(Let's fix this)
My silent vow, I promise you
(I made mistakes, I know I did)
To treat you now, the way you've been treating me

f.a.k.e.

Written By: Blameshift

You're not just anybody...

Is the answer to your question
We're never gonna stop
We're never gonna do what you say
We've got everything we need

You can here me screaming
Envy is the knife that stabs the pain
and forever we will stay

Sweet Revenge
A word not said
As it unfolds
The paybacks fed

Screaming out
What our hearts will do
If we get shot down
Shot down in a fall
We really dont care at all

Just tell me tomorrow
You'll be missing
Shoot it right back
I'll shoot it right back with a smile
We got everything we need

Can you hear me screaming?
I'm the victim of the day
It's forever your mistake

You're such a fake
Biting the hand your eating from
Holding my fist I wont dare to swing
Empty and shallow speak in vain
A ghost of whats yet to come

We're not listening anymore

We'll scream until you hear us
Our voices will be heard
