Lyrics

Lies In My Head

Written By: Stretching Madness

Lightning strikes at the top of ten
First to cross but the last one in
No matter how hard I try
You know I just can’t win

(chorus)
Lies in my head
Smile on my face
Should be somewhere instead
Get me out of this place

So I try to run again
I know damn well I never win
This life it gets the best of me
No finish line that I can see

(bridge)
You know theres no winners
And we all are sinners

Make a trick try to ease the pain
Try to stop, stop the stain

(chorus)
Lies in my head
Smile on my face
Should be somewhere instead
Get me out of this place

(solo)

(chorus)
Lies in my head
Smile on my face
Should be somewhere instead
Get me out of this place

Lies in my head
Smile on my face
Should be somewhere instead
Get me out of this place

Train Rollin’ down the tracks
You now it’s takin’ all I got
Soon she’ll be coming back
Only one way you know she’s got to

I want it all …..
I want it all, yeah yeah yeah yeah and I want it right now

Loose all you got to
You’ve got to give it all away
Choose choose choose one way or the other
You now it’s time to change your vision

I want it all
I want it all, yeah yeah yeah yeah

(chorus)
You will run, you will hide
Take me on your foggy ride
You will run, you will hide
Take me on your foggy ride

(bridge)
Follow me to the sun
Follow me home you’re the only one
Take me to my demise
I see what you’ve done through
Your father’s eyes

(solo)

(chorus)
You will run, you will hide
Take me on your foggy ride
You will run, you will hide
Take me on your foggy ride

You will run, you will hide
Take me on your foggy ride
You will run, you will hide
Take me on your…

Den Of Thieves

Written By: Stretching Madness

Come a little closer
it’s a bit obscene
As you enter into
my den of thieves
Stranger things have happened
Even stranger than me
But, that’s the life you live
In my den of thieves

A diet of a life time
A famished soul believes
Now I’m the next in line
In my den of thieves
Everything moves faster
Faster than your dreams
You here the laughter
In my den of thieves

(chorus)
Take me to my sanctuary
Bring me to my knees
Now I feel so solitary
In my den ,,, in my den of thieves

Give it take it gonna get it taking what is mine
Give it take it gonna get it stealing from the blind

(chorus)
Take me to my sanctuary
Bring me to my knees
Now I feel so solitary
In my of thieves, In my of thieves, In my of thieves, In my den

Let me see your face
Let me see you eye to eye
Take me from this place
To my den of thieves
To my den
