Lyrics for "Searching"

Searching©
By Billy Peterson and Adam Decker

(intro)
This place is strange and foreign to me
and that sign wasn't defined real well.
Tell me are those footprints of heroes
or graveyards where fools fell

(verse 1)
Through, endless nights and repetitive days
I feel as though im caged and I need to escape
this place in time, whether its my fault or not
I blame myself, it seems im doing that a lot
so stop, the madness confused with sadness
but its a gift, and im just glad to have this
Although I know, the road less traveled
seems like a good idea, but when unraveled
its a different kind of beast, a change in the wind
can take you from where you are now to when u begin
and thats the thing, no one wants to be left alone
im still looking for a place that I can call home
a journey for somewhere, and something to believe
underneath the stars, someone looking for me?

(chorus)
please tell me, cause im still
looking for somewhere
yeah im still looking for something to believe
im still looking for somewhere
for someone looking for me

Is there, anywhere to rest in this wilderness
cause id make a run for it but its so hard to see
and tell me is that the very hand of god or just a mirage
glaring at me

(verse 2)
the path I seek has never been defined
left with only the choice to make up my mind
I tried so hard, now im tired of trying
wouldnt get far, theres no sense in hiding
biding my time until opportunity found
off the beaten path, im never turning around
listening to the sound, a pleasant mockery
of how it is, going to change, what will it be?
A vision so blurred, murky and mired
sapping my will and strength, so tired
is there really no rest in this wilderness
im lost and looking for answers to all of this
theres gotta be a better way, I know what I need
underneath the sky, someone looking for me?

(chorus/outtro)
please tell me, cause im still
looking for somewhere
im still looking for something to believe
im still looking for somewhere
for someone looking for me
yeah im still looking for somewhere
im still looking for something to believe
im still looking for somewhere
for someone looking for me
and is there anywhere to rest in this wilderness
cause Id make a run for it if I could see
oh tell me is that the very hand of god or just a mirage
glaring at me

Disaster

Written By: Adam Decker


Lyrics for "Disaster"
Disaster©
By Adam Decker

(verse 1)
I’ve seen the beginning, ive seen the end result
To be one step away, and then lose it all
In the end is whose fault?
Sometimes I blame myself for this
At times so damn selfish
Realizing early on that the world is not perfect
Its all I can, to try and keep myself in check.
A person so close to me, what would you expect?
At times break down
In eternal solitude with absence of sound
But, what can I do now?
Id take it all back if I could
Just a foolish kid so misunderstood
The best part of our lives
Lost it all, now im cold on the inside
Now im out of sight, and out of mind
Take it all back if I could rewind time
No more darkness now its time for me to shine.

(chorus three times)
Im going insane
What more can I say
What more can I say

(verse 2)
So do I search in vein? There’s no end in sight
Im walking in darkness in the dead of night
With no path to light, I feel like im lost
Just to see my way through would come at what cost?
At a loss for words, slowly going insane
Im doin all that I can but with minimal gain
So I pray, to see past this mirage
Im struck down, by the very hand of god
Sometimes it feels odd, almost deceiving
When all I wanted, was something to believe in
Never seeing, lacking in faith
Without a taste of things to come I face
Memories I erased, so long ago
Like a jolt to the soul im losing control.

(verse 3)
I guess im still looking for something I cant find
I don’t want to assume, its just a waste of time
I made up my mind, that theres no other way out
Im overcome with pain like a shadow of doubt
What will it take, for me to turn it all around?
A heavy heart and broken dreams often resound
But what now? Im reminiscing on the past
It seems the best things in life, yo they never last
It’s the path that we all walk
The pain in my heart comes out when we all talk
So I cry out to see if anybody listens
Im on a mission, stop all the hate and friction
Im left wishing, hoping for a better day
With so much being said, theres nothing more to say
Theres nothing more to say
Theres nothing more to say
