Lyrics

Trust

Written By: Death and Taxes

BIRDS OF A FEATHER, STICK TOGETHER, I PUT MY TRUST IN YOU….. YOU PUT YOUR TRUST IN ME. CHECK FOR THE KNIFE BLADES IN YOUR BACK. FAIRWEATHER FRIENDS WELL THEY'RE JUST USERS, THEY LIE TO YOUR FACE, THEN THEY ABUSE YOU. CHECK FOR THE KNIFE BLADES IN OUR BACKS.DO I HAVE TO REMIND YOU THEY CAN SNARE & ENTWINE YOU FILL YOUR LOVE WITH POISON DOSES
CAST A SPELL WITH THEIR NEUROSIS.
IT’S ALL ABOUT TRUST
IT’S A MATTER OF TRUST
WHO CAN YOU TRUST
CAN I TRUST YOU
DO YOU TRUST ME..... TRUST
CAN I TRUST YOU

Serenity

Written By: Death and Taxes

SO MANY WASTED YEARS, TO FIND THE TIME TO LOOK INSIDE OF ME

TO SEEK THE LOST THINGS, THAT WERE BURIED ,DEEP INSIDE OF ME, DEEP INSIDE OF ME, DEEP INSIDE OF ME

SO MANY USELESS TEARS, TO FIND THE PATH
BACK TO MY SANITY

TRY TO RELEASE THE PAIN
TO FIND A WAY

TO SET ME FREE ,TO SET ME FREE, SET ME FREE

SO COME DOWN & GRANT ME SERENITY
GIVE ME SOME PEACE OF MIND

2X
UNLOCK THE CAGE
IN THE DARKNESS OF MY SOUL
SET MY DEMONS FREE
SET MY DEMONS FREE

SO COME DOWN & GRANT ME SERENITY
GIVE ME SOME PIECE OF MIND
GRANT ME MY SERENITY
GIVE ME SOME PEACE OF MIND

SWEET SERENITY
