Lyrics

Fade

Written By: Andrew Taylor

With your face on the floor, you reach out. With regret at all of your wasted life. Try to figure out where you went wrong. Don’t give in to the hate. Don’t give in to the lies. When they said that you were nothing worth being lived for. For the dreams that live in your mind, desires that reign in your heart. You can sing. Don’t lose that spark from your eye. The friends that left you wanting. The family that left you haunted. You can sing. Don’t lose that spark from your eye. With the Book on the floor, face up for the words to fill the air, reach out and grasp wisdom that belongs in your heart. Don’t reach out with a fist, don’t reach out with regret. But hold fast to the truth: you are something worth living for. No more wasted nights trying to make you come back to me. No wasted dreams for you. I can finally sleep at night and dream of peace. Don’t fade.

Sorrow

Written By: Andrew Taylor

With the dust still settled in the air as I try to make my way from work today. When I got there no words to say. With the memories all taken off the wall. And I find myself tossing at night trying to sleep, get rid of all of your memories. With your face stuck in my eyes I can’t find rest in life. You said that you’d come back. All the things I said to you, child, don’t show your face around here. Don’t come for me, I never told you I could take away your pain. Don’t come for me. Show your face around my door, I’ll show you the way home! Little Johnny only six years old today through a crack he sees his mother on the floor. With daddy in the restroom trying to wash the love away. If he screams, his mother just can’t take another beating, so he just sits and waits. When he’s twenty seven he’ll take a life lesson that his father showed him. Don’t come for me, I never told you I could take your pain away. Don’t come for me. Show your face around my door, I’ll show you the way home. I’m free.

Speechless

Written By: Andrew Taylor

So tired of walking this road alone with the bodies I made; starring at me with their black balled eyes. I know that you tried to kill me, but I forgave you and the wicked deeds that you did. I know that I’m not one of the best and that you said you would try to take back the rest of your life. Sorry that I lied to you when I told you I would wait, but you’re not worth my love. Don’t run away from me, don’t run away from me ‘cause I know you’re the only one. So tired of living in shame, so tired of screaming your name ’cause I know you’re the only one. So now you use my name like a knife and carve your sin in my back so the world will know my tainted life. And read the words of greed and lust. And know the folly of my ways. And the things we have done. I know you where never meant for me and I was meant for Him. But your sin it led me in. I worshiped the lust on your mouth and the greed in your skin and I gave up a life of love. So tired of screaming Your name. So tired of living in shame. ‘Cause I know You’re the only

Damned Ones

Written By: Andrew Taylor

Just a little boy waiting for my Father to come home. With the devil in the corner with the lust in his eyes. And the demon’s heart wants to see if he can take another piece of me and steal my heart away. Tear out my eyes, so I don’t have to see all the evil things that you want to do to me. Just a little boy waiting for my Father to come home you took away the last innocence in me. Just a little boy that didn’t know what to eat or drink but you fed me your lies, you gave me all your deceit. And the roots ran deep from the tree that day. At the place that you gave me all my new pain. Ran from the woods, left my shoes at the tree. But I never understand what you did to me. Saw my Father at the edge and He took my hand took my hand and He led me away! I want to show you there’s no fear of night. There’s joy in your life. I want to heal you. Want to free you from the love of the damned one’s. Just a little boy sitting In the corner waiting to go home. With the children all looking at the things you did. With the mess on my shirt and the dirt on my knees, they understand all the pain you gave to me! Ran to my house, put a knife to my wrist. Tried to bleed away the pain that you made that day. The only person that came to save my soul was a man I never heard or seen before.

Insomnia

Written By: Andrew Taylor

Now I understand why you always run away from me every time I shut the door and take away all your ecstasy and the life that you promised me. Threw it all way like a fable to be told like a little dog pull away. Rest your head at night. What did you expect from the creature you made? Now everybody can stand back and witness something that your never gonna see! Or ever gonna be! Love liars! I want the children to stop crying late at night. Can you hear the children, crying from the nightmare you gave, from the world that you promised them? Can you save a child? Can you save yourself? As you scream out, “Save us from our pain!” All the vile and tormented, come and clean out all your pain and rage. Hand over your keys to your own personal cage of pain. Never understood why you’d want to lock yourself up, take away your freedom and go to hell one day in a chariot made of flames. Stand back and witness something that you never want to see. But you can suffer from your liar’s love! Now I can understand why you feared me! Something that you couldn’t realize overcoming your own self righteous way of life! I just want the children to go back to sleep! We made this hell!
