A Storybook Ending

A Storybook Ending

Your Lipstick has faded and fallen
So far away
You know there’s nothing but
What to say and not to change
I hold on oh so tight
With every breathe
I will find hope in you
But not today

But not today…

Your perfect love is temporary
All the time
These one day trials keep
Messing with my mind
But I hold on so tight
With every breathe
Hoping for this love
To come back

I never wanted this to change, I never wanted anything

Lips so softly, lips so softly
On off and on again these days go by
Lips so softly, please hold me tightly
On off and on again these days go by

Bite my ear through me down on the floor this night will last forever
Woke up she wasn’t there again this day is so much harder

I never wanted this to change, I never wanted anything

Lips so softly, lips so softly
On off and on again these days go by
Lips so softly, please hold me tightly
On off and on again these days go by

You are the one, I’m so in love
Let go just for today in hopes to find a way you can’t tell that you love me

Lips so softly, lips so softly
On off and on again these days go by
Lips so softly, please hold me tightly
On off and on again these days go by
Lips so softly, please hold me tightly
On off and on again these days go by

Fallin Soldier

Written By: Garrett Roelofs & Casey Carroll

"Fallen Soldier"

I’m feeling cold, with sounds of thunder
I’m on My own
Cant describe the fear that I feel inside
My heart burns with every step I take
I cannot die here

Watch the clouds above me
As I move
In fatal directions
The faith above
Keeps me strong through this I might not make it
A fallen soldier on the ground
I won’t go down
As I fight onward against the wrath
I won’t go down

I m all alone, with visions of death
Flashbacks of known
Body’s numb, I will go on
See myself with family
I’m not so far
I will not die here

I keep the letter in my
Pocket hoping
I wont need it
Hopes alive desiring
Another chance
Just to see them

A fallen soldier on the ground
I won’t go down
As I fight onward against the wrath
I wont go down

Rain
Blood
Faith
Loved Ones
Tears
Fall
From
All of us

As I watch, the thousands
Give their life in glory
And I pray, for those who
Go to fight for freedom

A fallen soldier on the ground I wont go down
As I fight onward against the wrath I wont go down
(I won't go down)
A fallen soldier on the ground I wont go down
(I won't go down)
As I strive onward against the wrath I won't go down

A fallen soldier on the ground
I won’t go down
As I fight onward against the wrath
I wont go down

Captivity Zero

Written By: Casey Carroll/Garrett Roelofs

"Captivity Zero"

One more time I know that I
(They say they know)
Will find a chance to save myself
(They don’t, they’ll never know)
Keep on searching for what I
(They say they know)
Know is good cause they don’t
(They don’t, they’ll never know)

Excuse my words of ignorance hearing cry’s of uselessness
Please feed your faith to the blind
What can we do for what’s been said is there truth to what we meant
The enemy I found was myself

So lie to me, tell me everything is alright
Lie to me, tell me everything is alright

One last time to stand and rise
(They say they know)
To break the hate of the consumed
(They don’t, they’ll never know)
All our sin is trapped within
(They say they know)
Set us free cause they won’t
(They don’t, they’ll never know)

Excuse my words of ignorance hearing cry’s of uselessness
Please feed your faith to the blind
What can we do for what’s been said is there truth to what we meant
The enemy I found was myself

So lie to me, tell me everything is alright
Lie to me, tell me everything is alright
Lie to me, tell me everything is alright
Lie to me, tell me everything is alright

Hold on tight, for the love of God will break our sin
Hold on tight, for the love of God will break our sin
Hold on tight, for the love of God will break our sin

Black blood blue tears and open wounds
(They don’t know)
For they will fall in their own ruins
(They don’t know)
His grace will pour into our hearts
(They don’t know)
For the safety of us
(Safety of us)

Hold on tight, hold on tight

Same As Before

Written By: Casey Carroll/Garrett Roelofs

"Same As Before"

The shadows on the wall are staring back at me the air has never felt so cold
The symphony still plays a dramatic tune hello to a beginning goodbye to what I knew

Everything’s the same, you will never change

Live your life your heart beats faster
Your nervous yet you stare right at her
Remembering eighteen years old
Cherishing the life you hold
Fall in love and let her know why
The hours fade the minutes fly by
Remembering eighteen years old
It’s just a memory

The silhouette of me reflecting this past year the curbs have never felt so raw
I try to find a peace I looked into her eyes as she slowly smiled I slowly waved goodbye

Everything’s the same, you will never change

Live your life your heart beats faster
Your nervous yet you stare right at her
Remembering eighteen years old
Cherishing the life you hold
Fall in love and let her know why
The hours fade the minutes fly by
Remembering eighteen years old
It’s just a memory

Step aside to reconcile just enough to make it last
Come back to make a change another year and another day
This is a memory and is only a vision and life is so short
So remember what you have cause the air you breathe
Is the air you live with

Live your life your heart beats faster
Your nervous yet you stare right at her
Remembering eighteen years old
Cherishing the life you hold
Fall in love and let her know why
The hours fade the minutes fly by
Remembering eighteen years old
It’s just a memory

Memory, It’s just a memory, memory, It’s just a memory

Fatality Screams

Written By: Garrett Roelofs

"Fatality Screams"

Mom and Dad please forgive me
I cant go on
My empty heart of yours
Cant take this anymore
Self inflicted pain was the only way
To find an exit route across the road
A cluttered box of envy
Will just push me to fall
Still crying out for someone
My emotions stall

The emptiness I feel
Your causing pain unreal
Mom Dad please forgive me
I cant go on
My empty heart of yours
Cant take this anymore
I cry out just forget me
I cant go on

Constant screams from nowhere, flat line my heart again
My thought
Of dying is my only friend
Fasting from the real life
Feeding off the hope
I’m holding on to all you
My conscience has been thrown

The emptiness I feel
Your causing pain unreal
Mom Dad please forgive me
I cant go on
My empty heart of yours
Cant take this anymore
I cry out just forget me
I cant go on

I cant go on
I cant go on
I cant go on
I cant go on

Mom and Dad please forgive me

The Emptiness I feel no longer is so real mom, dad please forgive me, I love this sight
My empty heart of yours is no longer torn, I throw out indignation my fatal
scream is gone...

Welcome To The Beautiful

Written By: Casey Carroll

"Welcome To The Beautiful"

I walk this town
Almost everywhere
And dare to think
Where my life will go
I’ll sit around
And contemplate
Each memory
And every day
Alright

The lights they shine so bright above
They call my name
The path I’ve took is the path I’ll walk
Again

Welcome To The beautiful a choice of life through these crossroads and
Welcome to the wonderful a time of faith a heart at home

Go…

Time and time
Again I’ve failed
Through a shadow
Of myself
The life I lead
Is a life I’ve lost
Mistake my past
The future thought

The lights they shine so bright above
They call my name
The path I’ve took is the path I’ll walk
Again

Welcome To The beautiful a choice of life through these crossroads and
Welcome to the wonderful a time of faith a heart at home

We walk these lines of innocence
We will find faith
So on and on we fight for life face to face
We walk these lines of innocence
We will find faith
So on and on we fight for life
Face to face

Welcome To The beautiful a choice of life through these crossroads and
Welcome to the wonderful a time of faith a heart at home
