Lyrics

Beaten Down

Written By: Not Another Playne Jayne

Verse 1:
Finding my way, taking the day
Living my all before I fall
Digging my grave, paving the way
Path to my eternal stay

Chorus:
Caught in a lie, bleeding me dry
Fighting for all is making me cry
Beating me down beyond belief
No time of ending or chance of relief

Verse 2:
Taking the pill makes me feel ill
Causes the rush that can kill
Sentence pending, life is ending
Sent every gift I can send

Chorus:
Caught in a lie, bleeding me dry
Fighting for all is making me cry
Beating me down beyond belief
No time of ending or chance of relief

Bridge:
Your lies, I'm tired, No more

Chorus:
Caught in a lie, bleeding me dry
Fighting for all is making me cry
Beating me down beyond belief
No time of ending or chance of relief

Red Sea

Written By: Not Another Playne Jayne

Verse 1:
Look at me, what do I see
The broken image sets me free
Shattered past and broken shards
Reflecting back on the open scars
Now what I've done I face within
Pulled apart and wearing thin
Time goes on but still I try
I make my last my only cry

Pre-chorus:
No shadows roam, even they're not free
I fight within the light to see
I cannot stand, cannot fall, lost within a hollow call

Chorus:
Now the end's awaiting me
beyond the glass, red liquid sea
(x4)

Verse 2:
Whispers fade and voices cease
No silver tongue just golden peace
The end is here and without fail
I sold myself but not on sale
As I reflect on where I've been
a strange sorrow takes me in
It holds me tight and won't let go
Back to a place I don't want to know

Pre-chorus:
No shadows roam, even they're not free
I fight within the light to see
I cannot stand, cannot fall, lost within a hollow call

Chorus:
Now the end's awaiting me
beyond the glass, red liquid sea
(x8)

Reflections

Written By: Not Another Playne Jayne

Verse 1:
To find a place inside myself
and hide away until I'm someone else
Who I am is not who I want to be
Contradiction filled by imperfection
What you see is a shadow of what's in me
I'll show you what's inside

Pre-chorus:
Show me the way
Show me the truth
Don't turn away
I'm lost without you

Chorus:
Reflections of my past
Mirror image of what could last
Here today, no more sorrow
Into the ashes of tomorrow

Verse 2:
Theres a longing in my soul
A truth I've always always known
Now I know I'm ready to break free
There's a reasoning long forgotten
that carries on my darkest thought
no longer safe inside of me

Pre-chorus:
Show me the way
Show me the truth
Don't turn away
I'm lost without you

Chorus (x2):
Reflections of my past
Mirror image of what could last
Here today, no more sorrow
Into the ashes of tomorrow

Alibi

Written By: Not Another Playne Jayne

Verse 1:
So you hear my words but you choose not to listen
You've reconfirmed what you are missing
You see all these things but blind is your vision
Still you can taste the contrition

Pre-chorus:
It's filling up before my eyes
It hides the sun and darkens the skies
till there's no light within our lives
We hold dear to our alibis

Chorus:
Sick of your lies
Don't need your alibi
Your dirty lie
Time to cut our ties

Verse 2:
Do you hear my point and the sense I am making
Do you turn away hippocrites who are faking
I'm on to your game and the farce you're creating
You should be ashamed of your desecration

Pre-chorus:
It's filling up before my eyes
It hides the sun and darkens the skies
till there's no light within our lives
We hold dear to our alibis

Chorus:
Sick of your lies
Don't need your alibi
Your dirty lie
Time to cut our ties

Bridge:
The ruins lay before my eyes
diminish the view of what is right

Pre-chorus:
It's filling up before my eyes
It hides the sun and darkens the skies
striking fear on all sides
We hold dear to our alibis
No longer calm fears with our lullabies

Chorus:
Sick of your lies
Don't need your alibi
Your dirty lie
Time to cut our ties

Stuck

Written By: Not Another Playne Jayne

Verse 1:
Another dance with the devil, another moonlit stroll
Another chance to be who I could not show
Fortunes change and days go by, leaving me
With just a whimper and a sigh

Pre-chorus:
Clouded stains, like fresh paint, stick to me while I wait

Chorus:
Cuz I’m stuck in line waiting for your time
Na-na-Na…
(x2)

Verse 2:
Bothered by another conscious lie
Been acquitted by whose compromise
Black and grey still fall away
Encapsulate the frail’s day

Pre-chorus:
Clouded stains, like fresh paint, stick to me while I wait

Chorus:
Cuz I’m stuck in line waiting for your time
Na-na-Na…
(x5)
