Lyrics

Gagged and Bound

Written By: Michael Adams

silence breaks the screams
it's finally over
thru holes the light shines thru
the shadows creep in
check the chains they're tight
so long since freedom
broke me years ago
but i'm still breathing

here i am, the way you love me
got me gagged and bound
once again your love assaults me
kicks me to the ground
torture chamber drag me daily
killing off pieces of me

wake myself with the screams
thank god it's over
thru holes the light shines thru
and those shadows creep in
check my chains they're tight
too long since freedom
broke me years ago
but i'm still breathing

here i am, the way you love me
got me gagged and bound
once again your love assaults me
kicks me to the ground
torture chamber drag me daily
killing off pieces of me

Raise Your Flag(Surrender)

Written By: Michael Adams

too long the fight has raged
within my squalid mind
in darkened corners
no one wants to see

the remains of sanity
crumble in my grip
breaking out the windows to your soul

chorus:
raise your flag, surrender
now your fight is over
on your lips the kiss of death
can't you see it darling
the beauty in the dying
on your lips the kiss of death

of the war that you create
our love's a casulaty
the ashes dance like snowflakes in the wind

the remains of my sanity
crumble in my grip
i'm kicking out the windows to your soul

I Dreamed of Killing You

Written By: Michael Adams

had it made with your toys and tricks and your secrets on the side
i was addicted but so were you i guess, the difference was the high
you cursed and cried and called the shrinks, and left me again
never cared where you ran too, the glass was smoking in my hand

i dreamed of killing you, i dreamed of killing myself
dopesick and broken minded
so close our lives came to being through
i dreamed of killing you

held me down and force fed me your lies, and i choked on them everytime
pushed me away but held him tight, and said it was all in my mind
i screamed and cried and begged for truth, confessions never came
should have killed you then but as they say, it's never too late

i dreamed of killing you, i dreamed of killing myself
dopesick and broken minded
so close our lives came to being through
i dreamed of killing you
