Lyrics

Temptation (Supernatural Showdown)

Written By: Nax, The New Shining

I am the moon, you are the sun.
Together we fight over morning light.
Baby, your love has a cruel intent;
Do you know, what I feel ?
You’re bringing out the worst in me.
Desire burns inside of me.
It’s more than a feeling, more than I’m needing;
You don’t do real love.

Your velvet skin and your scarlet lips.
Are haunting me in my dreams at night.
Your honeyed tongue gets ev’rything done.
Do you know, what I feel?
You’re bringing out the worst in me.
Desire burns inside of me.
It’s more than a feeling, more than I’m needing;
You don’t do real love.

Temptation, I’m already down on my knees.
Temptation, I just can’t shake the disease.
Of all the things I have ever done.
Fighting you is the hardest one.
You make me feel like a renegade,
a renegade, renegade.

My burning scar, that's who you are.

I am the moon, you are the sun.
Together we fight over morning light.
Baby your love’s hurting me;
I’m already in too deep.
You’re bringing out the worst in me.
You make me lose my sanity.
It’s more than a feeling, more than I’m needing;
you don’t do real love.

Temptation, Temptation,
Of all the things I have ever done.
Fighting you is the hardest one.
You make me feel like a renegade,
a renegade, renegade.

Temptation, I'm already down on my knees.
Temptation, I just cannot shake the disease.

Red Eyes (Supernatural Showdown)

Written By: Nax, The New Shining

I guess I’m wanting
As I ever wanted you
Some things are better left unsaid it’s true
I guess I won’t try
I better turn the other way
Best to be moving on
And be on my way,

Today,
And keep on running.

I’m done crying
Crying over you
It doesn’t make a difference
No matter what I ever do.
Now I’m running faster,
Faster every day.
Without you telling me
I should wait another day
So I’m letting you go now.

Red eyes and no more tears left to cry
Red eyes, a kiss goodbye
Red eyes, no matter how hard we try
This river’s running dry.

I’ll be someone new,
Someone new and in love.
I’ll be someone new
Someone new in love and in time
I’ll know what it’s like..
Without you, without you.

Now I guess I won’t try
I better turn the other way
I best be moving on
And be on my way.

Red eyes and no more tears left to cry
Red eyes, a kiss goodbye
Red eyes, no matter how hard we try
This river’s running dry.
Red eyes, red eyes.

Tell me something, where do you go from here?
Your eyes ain’t never gonna dry,
Till you’re done crying red eyes, red eyes.

Hurt (Supernatural Showdown)

Written By: Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails)

I hurt myself today.
To see if I still feel.
I focus on the pain,
The only thing that's real.
The needle tears a hole.
The old familiar sting.
Try to kill it all away.
But I remember everything.

What have I become
My sweetest friend?
Everyone I know goes away
In the end.
And you could have it all;
My empire of dirt.
I will let you down,
I will make you hurt.

I wear this crown of thorns,
Upon my liar's chair.
Full of broken thoughts,
I cannot repair.
Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappear.
You are someone else,
I am still right here.

What have I become
My sweetest friend?
Everyone I know goes away
In the end.
And you could have it all;
My empire of dirt.
I will let you down,
I will make you hurt.

If I could start again;
A million miles away.
I would keep myself;
I would find a way.

I would find a way..

Stand Back (Supernatural Showdown)

Written By: Nax, The New Shining

Mad eyes looking down on me,
Greedy claws reaching out for me.
So deceiving, misleading, hear the angels cry.
You men of power, you men of greed;
When the day comes you will see,
all you are, ever will be, is true devil’s seed.

I’m gonna stand back and watch you bleed,
When the bell tolls you will see,
I’m gonna stand back, stand back you’ll see.

You men of hate, you men of fear
Your time has come, the end is near.
I’ll be waiting in the shadows,
I’ll be digging your graves
See the sun rise in the east,
Another day brings a new born beast.
But I won’t back down, no I won’t
Give in to you.

I’m gonna stand back and watch you bleed,
When the bell tolls you will see,
I’m gonna stand back, stand back you’ll see.
You men of power, you men of greed
When the day comes you will see,
I’m gonna stand back and watch you bleed.

Loved by some, feared by others;
You’re all the same to me so don’t bother.
You can spend your whole life washing
the blood off your hands.
See the sun rise in the east,
Another day brings a new born beast.
But I won’t back down, no I won’t
Give in to you.

I’m gonna stand back and watch you bleed,
When the bell tolls you will see,
I’m gonna stand back, stand back you’ll see.
You men of power, you men of greed
When the day comes you will see,
I’m gonna stand back and watch you bleed..

I’ll be digging your graves..

Reason to Believe (Supernatural Showdown)

Written By: Nax, The New Shining

Come closer my old friend,
Ease your mind of your frustration.
Lay down your troubled head,
Tell me how you feel.
I’ve watched you come alive,
Born into a world that’s broken.
I witnessed every hour,
I know what’s on your mind.

As you’re waiting, so eager to run.
As you’re waiting, for the rising sun.

And more than you’ll ever know,
I wish you could have it all.
I got a reason to believe in you.

I’ve watched you struggle on,
As years went by in isolation.
So tired of being strong,
The boy became a man.

As you’re waiting, for the rising sun.
As you’re waiting, eager to run.

And more than you’ll ever know,
I wish you could have it all.
I got a reason to believe in you.
And one day you will see,
That you’re just a part of me,
I got a reason to believe in you.
I got a reason to believe in you.
