Lyrics

As One - Toxic Federation

Written By: Toxic Federation

As One

So Sick, Get out of my Face,
There's nothing left inside me,
One thought for every day,
I'm finding nothing real,
You thought that I couldn’t see,
just used me as you please,
I've paid my time to Realize
and fault your lies…

CHORUS:
So, Here we stand
Here we Fall,
And Here we Bleed,
Together as one...
X2

Feels like I 'm the onIy one,
who got taken right the way down,
Tiied down so I couldn’t be,
what's fighting you
I feel alive, I‘m here again, what you say?
You say you’ll never leave"
You've sunk your claws into my skin,
and you’ll never let go, , ,

(Chorus)

Oh my boy you’ve done it again
Searching for a simple time, simple time.
To be us, we're so cold,
You Know!

There's just nothing left,
I 'm just a lifeless figure,
One choice left to make,
my finger on the trigger,
waiting for the Answer,
To what I'm asking you,
Is this what you want forever?

(Chorus)

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Together as one!
No, No, No, No, together… whoah!
Together as one… one! NO!

Daybreak - Toxic Federation

Written By: Toxic Federation

DAYBREAK:

WAR: Be careful what you wish Fog
DEATH: Because its only the beginning DESTRUCTION: You can see it on your TV LIFE: Struck down in their roads like Thunder

No one can help you now,
So your sending me away, No!

I’m leaving tomorrow at Daybreak,
They're sending me to a country far away, where lives that were once fortuned and free, are ruined forever, left only with...

WAR: How and when will all this end?
DEATH: Don't send me home in a box instead
DESTRUCTION: Don't wanna see a world collapse around me
LIFE: Don't wanna die in the midst of sand and flames, Blood and Dust.

They say they're evil, they say they're Crazy, Some say they're throwing my life away.

I’m leaving tomorrow at Daybreak,
They're sending me to a country far away, where lives that were once fortuned and free, are ruined forever, left only with War.

Do you think that it's right?

Behind The Mask - Toxic Federation

Written By: Toxic Federation

Behind the Mask

Freedom ... the elusive gift
To you and me it's just a distant dream
A fading hazy memory to far too many
Given now just to those who'll pay
And every day we feel it slipping
Further and further away
We built his holy land
His dreams we built from sand
We gave to him our hopes at last
Just to find what was behind the mask

A man of metal and with an iron fist
An illusion made of fear this isn't truly you
But still this monster is all the world will see
To five again the simple life you've got to see this through

Find the man deep within and let him live again
We're begging on hands and knees, you've got to end this pain
Forget the shame and foolish pride it does not make you strong
Come back to us we need you now, come back you belong

Freedom, from your web of steel
Freedom, while you still can feel
Freedom, shed your shroud of hate
Freedom, change, before it's too late

Freedom, the mask it grows too tight
Freedom, it bums away your sight
Freedom, it's time to stop and fight
Freedom, it's time to do what's right

Fly Too High - Toxic Federation

Written By: Toxic Federation

Flying too High

Flying high
A crooked state of mind
Trying to find
The sanity inside
Hopes and dreams, will make you strong
But don't wait too long
Try and find, some piece of mind
Letting go of what it is that makes you

Fly too high, taking you
To a place you can't go. You can
Lie and say, everything
Is just OK, just don't crash

You’re flying too high
You’re flying too high
You’re flying too high
You’re flying too high

You’re flying too high as you start to tumble, well
You left it too late, now you've got so much (more) to lose
You fell too deep, now you're freefalling down to earth
Now all you can do, is wonder over why did you

Fly too high, taking you
To a place you can't go. You tried to
Lie and say, everything
Was just OK, and then you crashed

Last Words - Toxic Federation

Written By: Toxic Federation

Last Words

Bleak streets lined with a thousand broken faces
And everyone with a sad tale to tell
Why do we have the right to say that we are better?
That you are wrong, and we are right,
That we must show the way

Last words of a dying land
Take your arrogance and greed and leave us to live as we did

Brain-dead pimps and little men will sell your women to the world
Take your money, and preach to your kids
These things are gonna change

Last words of a dying land
Take your arrogance and greed and leave us to live as we did

On Air - Toxic Federation

Written By: Toxic Federation

On Air - Toxic Federation

Woah...woah...woah...woah

Standing, where you belong On air, to fall for all

What have I got to prove, to be who I want to be
And what have I got to do, when all I have is all I need There'll always be something more to me So come on, bring it out of me, so bring it out of me

Standing, where you belong On air, to fall for all

If you can feel like home is where love comes for free
I'll stand by you in all the things you do, the things you do to me

Ohhh...woahhh.oh.oh

I feel so light
It spreads across my skin Do I need to breathe? You feel the same Alive, we can survive Put your trust in me

Do you feel it, this fear, of something new? Don't let it bring us down I can't, not fight, for what, is deep inside I'll fight until I drown

What have I got to prove, to be who I want to be
And what have I got to do, when all I have is all I need There'll always be something more to me So come on, bring it out of me, so bring it out of me What if I said to you, to take time and take a chance
And what if I gave to you, the life you never dared to dance There'll always be something I never saw
So come on, bring out the best in me, and let me find it in you

Standing, where you belong On air, to fall for all

Patriots Gamble - Toxic Federation

Written By: Toxic Federation

Patriots Gamble

A crown, three lions
Its your country, will you fight for it?
Stand your ground and take a chance
Live for it, or die for it

Do you feel the doubt as you raise the flag?
And can you know your place? As you march

Away from the things you know
Breaking hearts and breaking minds
Will you know when its time to leave
And stop playing God?

Just power, no passion
It's your nation, and you kill for it
You stay and fight, and don't know why
Wrong or right what's your reply?

Do you feel the doubt as you raise the flag?
And are you where you want to be? As you march

Away from the things you know
Breaking hearts and breaking minds
Will you know when its time to leave
And stop playing God?

Of Reason - Toxic Federation

Written By: Toxic Federation

Of Reason-Toxic Federation
I can see you, I can feel you, running from your fate
You're coming with us boy, tell mother you'll be late
It's time to pay the price for what you do
You’ve stolen all our pleasures now we're going to take yours too
See, see what you've become
And look at all you've done
You've lived for lust
You've lived for greed
You've trampled us beneath your feet
We're your executioners and we're coming after you
Did you think you'd got away, escaped from all your fears?
We're knocking at your door, boy, knocking cant you hear?
We'll take you, we'll break you, and we'll feed you to the dogs
The noose is round your throat start praying to your gods
See, see what you've become
And look at all you've done
You've lived for lust
You've lived for greed
You've trampled us beneath your feet
We're your executioners and we're coming after you
