Lyrics

What Was I Thinking Of?

Written By: Michael J. Bartha

Memories on the side.
Hate this scene,put me out of my misery.
I don't have the heart,
don't where to start.
Hurt's to think,
my mind on the brink.
I was just a child.
Did not ask for this trial.
Bent my mind to get past it,
to get on through,
Twisted perceptions of love.

What was I thinking of?
Is this a dream, as I wake,
I scream
Then clouds start to cry.
Why, Oh, Why.

Nightmares in my mind.
Hate this scene,
can't blot it out of my head you see.
Youth stolen from the start,
memories like a dart.
Forgetting's bliss,
twisted reminisce
of destruction,
pain and devastation.
Try to pretend I am stronger now in the end.
My reign as the King of the Lost.

What was I thinking of?
Is this a dream, as I wake,
I scream
Then clouds start to cry.
Why, Oh, Why.

What was I thinking of?
Is this a dream, as I wake,
I scream
Then clouds start to cry.
Why, Oh, Why.

Come Out To Play

Written By: Michael J. Bartha


Looking at me all innocent
Tell me how I've failed in the last three years
Cry to me, it's all bullshit
tell me how you know I didn't ever care

Well I've tried and I cried
and the man you once known, well he just died
Now the monsters have come out to play
Reap the fruits of all that you've sown
Now the monsters have come out to play
Now tell them how you don't deserve this

On my pride you have preyed
broken down with your mind games
Find your self a new slave
and play the martyr 'cause I don't give a fuck.

Well I've tried and I cried
and the man you once known, well he just died

I never, ever wanted it this way
We had dreams that I thought were the same
Now my heart has turned to black
and new day is dawned so deal with it

Well I've tried and I cried
and the man you once known, well he just died

Now the monsters have come out to play
Reap the fruits of all that you've sown
Now the monsters have come out to play
Now tell them how you don't deserve this

and I've tried and I cried
and the man you once known, well he just died

Now the monsters have come out to play
Reap the fruits of all that you've sown
Now the monsters have come out to play
Now tell them how you don't deserve this
Now the monsters have come out to play
Reap the fruits of all that you've sown
Now the monsters have come out to play
Now tell them how you don't deserve this
