Lyrics

One Way Ticket

Written By: Justin Banks

One Way Ticket

His time’s run out
He’s had enough – his mind’s spun out
He’s about to turn on this life
And admit that he flunked out
His only way out
Is to go back down this route
And back to the start of the pain
Inside his house
He feels just like a mouse
He feels so small
He just wants to return to the life that he
Had once before
He’s sick of the voices
He still here’s the calls
He just wants to hide away somewhere
And end it all
But he walks in the door
Back to the family law
His parents don’t leave him alone
they always ask for more
they don’t let him alone
he wants to live on his own
with all this rage under
this roof how can they call this a home
but he hides the pain
like he’s done for years
his eyes are so heavy from holding in all the tears
and he’s only got one fear
the darkness around him
he doesn’t fear death
his pain has built up to mountains… but

Chorus>
The pain inside is just too much

The pain inside is just too much

so he walks inside
feels like he’s already died
with a life like this
it’s like he’s never been alive
with all the times that he’s tried
he just gets pushed aside
he’s trapped in his own home
where there’s nowhere to hide
he walks in the house
his folks come out
they’re both yelling all at once
and he can’t block it out
and he tries not to shout
- the words just come out of his mouth
and he can’t control it anymore
and now just wants out
but he has to wait (he has to wait)
until his parents debate is finally over
while they’re screaming and breaking plates
and now he’s chosen his fate
he’s going to do it today
he’s finally given up –
he’s had enough of the pain
so he tries with his lies
to break himself out of this fight
he tries to explain where the hell he’s
been out all night
and the truth of it is
he just wants out of his life
so he goes to his room
lies down and turns off the light – because of

Chorus>
The pain inside is just too much

The pain inside is just too much

Bridge> Lead Guitar>

So he waits for a while
Until his folks go upstairs
Now it’s his chance to return to them
What they think is theirs
And he goes to the bathroom
And he doesn’t really care
If he ends his whole mother f***ing
Life right here and there
And he locks the door
He pulls out a knife
He’s amazed at how something so small
could end his whole life
and he goes to the mirror
looks into his eyes
he can’t believe all the evil that’s
always lied inside of himself
man… his life’s living hell
he wishes one more time
that he could have been someone else
and he runs the bath tub
and the steam rises up
he considers for the last time
all the people he loves
but it’s never enough
for him to change his mind
his heart’s been broken for the
very last time
and he climbs into the bath tub
that’s where he will lie
he slits his wrists so hard
that he commits suicide

Chorus>
The pain inside is just too much

The pain inside is just too much

Signed My Life Away

Written By: Justin Banks

SIGNED MY LIFE AWAY

Lying next to you – I feel just like a slave
I never feel alive and then you
You take my life – and lock it all away

I take these chains
And lock myself – inside my cell
And lie alone – and lie awake
I feel the pain – you’ll never change
( I need to escape!!!)

CHORUS
Being with you is just a big mistake
And now I’ve found that
If I’m with you I’ve signed my life away

Lying next to you – is such a lonely place
I’m powerless against you but I know
I’ve lost it all – there’s no more you can take

I take these chains
And lock myself – inside my cell
And lie alone – and lie awake
I feel the pain – you’ll never change
( I need to escape!!!)

CHORUS
Being with you is just a big mistake
And now I’ve found that
If I’m with you I’ve signed my life away

Bridge

I take these chains
And lock myself – inside my cell
And lie alone – and lie awake
I feel the pain – you’ll never change
( I need to escape!!!)

CHORUS
Being with you is just a big mistake
And now I’ve found that
If I’m with you I’ve signed my life away

SONAMULATE

Written By: Justin Banks

I can’t see – what life means to me
And inside I’m filled – with this misery
And I try to hide – these feelings inside
But oh soon they will – take over my mind (X2)

(Chorus)
Time is hear, I show no fear
Inside I cry, I’m near my suicide

All this Rage - built up by all this pain
Don’t take it away – it comes back again
I can’t handle this – it becomes too much
And I’m hurt so bad – by the slightest touch

I am somnambulating (X8)

(Chorus)
Time is hear, I show no fear
Inside I cry, I’m near my suicide

Memories Fade

Written By: Justin Banks

It’s time I stood and faced my fears
I need to learn
It’s time for me to let you go
And watch your memories burn
And I will watch your memories fade
And I won’t cry
And I will watch your memories fade
I will watch you die

(CHORUS)
I know that it’s now really
Over and I’m so
Ashamed to stand there
By your side…
And I’m Ashamed
To be alive
I take the Blame
Every time
It feels the same
Just like I’ve died
But don’t act like I’m
not alive

I should have seen it long ago
When we were alone
But I left the wounds to heal them selves
Trying to make it on my own
And I will watch your memories fade
And I won’t cry
And I will watch your memories fade
I will watch you die

(CHORUS)

I will watch your memories fading
I will watch your memories fade
I will watch your memories fade away

(CHORUS)

I will watch your memories fading
I will watch your memories fade
I will watch your memories fade away

And I will watch your memories fade
And I won’t cry
And I will watch your memories fade
I will watch you die
