Lyrics

Broken Man

Written By: Clay Blyth

The broken man lays alone in his cage
The only hope are the photos that he holds
And each day seems like the last
But the broken man he wont give up

Behind these walls rest a broken soul
Though who’s to blame for the damage that’s been done
Is it our leaders? Or the work of god?
Or the devils hand that drags him down below?

Can you tell me who’s to blame?

So where is god when you need his hand?
To pull you away from the devils hand
The broken man will walk a jagged track
With good and evil in the shadows behind his back

Can you tell me who’s to blame?

Another Chapter

Written By: Clay Blyth

Another pawn on the board time to make a move
Where to go so unknown consequence with every move

Down this road the road of unknown
We all find that obstacles arise
No matter what we cant avoid the plot
What’s down is down its time to walk

Decisions made consequence came
Confidence is the key to your success
As we walk our chapters they will unfold
Progress is the key to your success

And another chapter unfolds once

Wish That I Could Burn

Written By: Clay Blyth

As I walk down this road
And feel the light
Shine from above
And makes me smile

And it feels so good and I wish that I could burn

As the sun shines from above
I feel the light
Shine from above
And it makes me smile

And it feels so good and I wish that I could burn

Sometimes in our life
Shit can bring us down
There’s always someone who’s
Worse of then you

When I feel this way I look up to you

And I wish that I could burn.

Flying With Angels

Written By: Clay Blyth

In my sleep I am free
When I wake it seem to take control of me
In my dreams I am free
From the evil shadows that follow me
And my blood is filled with faith
As it tries to erase the evil from me
But is the devil taking control of me
Or will my angels give me wings to fly free

My dreams are filled with angels
When I open my eyes they fly away

Dreaming of angels
When I open my eyes they fly away

Some Days

Written By: Clay Blyth

City lights is where I roam
Suburban sky’s where strangers walk
Different towns with different names
That all end up the same

Some days I feel alone
Some days I feel Ok
Some days I wonder
Do you feel the same

And I love you is what you said
When I held you in my chest
Lost in eye’s lost in kiss
These moments were so bliss.
