Lyrics

Spotlights Out

Written By: Dissént

Walking around wondering why...

Feeling it's so hard... it's so hard... left your body saying... nobody is saying ... I don't want to be left without this...

Your cards have been dealt, don't you know there is no going back... what can I say? I don't want to be like you....

Like you...Like you...Like you... your spotlights out...

Feels like regret is gaining ground... would you stay low and lose your...?

Feels like I can break their backs ... I wish I could erase them...

Who said you could give up and leave... this choice ain’t yours, it ain’t yours...

Your drama never stops, never stops... don't you want it gone... what can I say? I don't want to be like you....

Say the Word

Written By: Dissént

Say the word ... the word... the word ... you want me gone... there's no need to say it out loud.

Because I know you can say it... well I can say it too ... because you know what we are missing all along...

Because I have been here twice before...

And all these times you've been neglected... no one cared to find out what you've lost ... and now you've lost it all...

The same old road that took you nowhere ... have you noticed you ain’t unique at all... you are such a waste of time... you are such a waste of time...

Say the word ... Say you want love...the word... the word ... you want me gone... there's no need to say it out loud...

To us... To us... To us... To us... To us...

Shattered Glass

Written By: Dissént

I know my ways ... they bore you now...
I know my ways ... they bored you then...

The diamonds light... Shattered glass... The diamonds light…

Shattered glass we pierce right through ...
The diamonds ...The diamonds

... Or are we meant to be alone...... Or are we meant to be alone...

You will pretend that it's not broken ... but you know it is...

You won't defend what it's not worth it ... but you know it was...

You will pretend that it's not broken ... but you know it is...

Keeping track of my changes of mind... I'd never wasted your precious time ...

The diamonds...The diamonds...The diamonds...The diamonds... Shattered glass...

Shattered glass we pierce right through ... So I found out ... I found out ... I found out how weak we are...

... Or are we meant to be alone... So I found out ... I found out … I found out how weak we are ...

The same sweet... the same crush ... the same neurotic fall...

The same sweet... the same crush ... the same neurotic fall...

Burst In

Written By: Dissént

Nah... I know you know...
Nah... I know you know...

You thought I had nothing to say... come on!
You thought there was no other way ... you know ...

My head is about to explode

Because I know what you hide... I know what you are hiding down...

Don't, Don't, Don't make a sound

Because I know what you hide... I know what you've done.

You thought I had nothing to say... collide! you take you take you take you take you....

Square Shaped Top

Written By: Dissént

I'm falling apart
I'm running a psych show.
Why would I, you tell me?
Oh come, you tell me.
Square shaped tops, bottoms up our way,
Sky-mount sheets, writing their way through,
the skies open up for me, and then I wave up high.

HEY! HEY! HEY! HEY!
If I'm probably messed up, you are probably messed up.
HEY! HEY! HEY! HEY!
Then I am sure I got something better than you.
HEY! HEY! HEY! HEY!
If I'm probably messed up, you are probably messed up.

Sit and watch, have the time of your life
Come and join, would you come and enjoy it too?
Do you even know, why we are here in the first place?

HEY! HEY! HEY! HEY!
If I'm probably messed up, you are probably messed up.
HEY! HEY! HEY! HEY!
Then I am sure I got something better than you.
HEY! HEY! HEY! HEY!
If I'm probably messed up, you are probably messed up.

Let them go away,
Do you know where you are driving?
You are driving,
YOU DRIVE!

Reckless

Written By: Dissént

So used to... so used to you... This used to ... this used to be you...

It’s been said ... the will is done... // Every day that goes by...

It’s been said ... the will is done... // Words becoming heavier... heavier...

The reckless souls we are... the wreckage that we are...

You bring, you take, you break but you are looking out...

The pain we shared ... we make amends, we are losing grip of what we truly...

You bring, you take, you break but you are looking out...

So far it's what we've done... recalling what we're not...

What we're not...what we're not... Because this is who we are...

We gave up, we gave up, we gave up, we gave up what we are... we gave up what we are...
