Lyrics

FOR YOU

Do you know you were the one?
You were the one that showed me the way,
Opened my eyes, opened my mind, bled out your heart, passed it on.
Saw these ideas, brought them to light, reached for the stars, hoped for the best,
Did what you could, intentions were good, ignored what they said, burned a brilliant red,
Showed me perfection, adjusted my life, climbed to that level, no turning back,
Wasn’t for you, don’t know where I’d be, owe it to you, and I won’t forget
Could care less, what they think, could care less, what they see, what I know, lies deep inside,
Nothing can change and nothing can erase what you’ve done.

Showed me the right
And you showed me the wrong

You did it all,
Through a song

INSTEP

I’m running so fast, you just can’t keep up
And when I take the time, to stop and turn around,
You just talk your shit and try to cut me down

It’s not my fault, that you’ve fallen behind,
I’m moving ahead, progressing with time
It’s not about what’s old or new,
It’s what’s inside and right for you

And when you thought you caught up man,
And found your place,
You’ll look ahead
I’m still in front of this race

It’s not my fault, that you’ve fallen behind,
I’m moving ahead, progressing with time
It’s not about what’s old or new,
It’s what’s inside and right for you

Can’t waste my time, being chained to the past,
Gotta face the future, because it’s moving so fast
Open your arms, take it all in
Grab what you want, don’t cut your self thin

No time to waste, the futures moving fast
Gotta live every day, as if it were your last.

LEAVE YOUR MARK

Life’s so short
The days just fly
Make a choice
Live up to it
Step out of the crowd
Use your voice
Take your aim
Go right through it
Learn your past
Create your future
Earn some respect
So few do it
Leave an impression
Make a change
Prove it to yourself
Get right to it

Leave your,
Leave your mark
Be proud of
What you’ve said and
What you’ve done

Grab this time
Don’t let it slip
Face the world
Live this day
Show the others
What it means
Use your words
Have your say

Ignore the critics
They mean nothing
Empty hearts
They won’t stay
And for the new
Leave them something
Pass the torch
Show the way
SEE IT THROUGH

I’m pushing, I’m pushing
I’m pushing on through
I’m pushing, I’m pushing
What the fuck can I do?
I’m pushing, I’m pushing
I’m strippin the screw
I’m pushing, I’m pushing
I’m pushing till I’m blue

Problems they’ll come along
Nothing I can do…
Try to stay in focus
Can’t let this effect you

I’m doing, I’m doing
I’m doing all I can do
I’m doing, I’m doing
What the fuck can I do?
I’m doing, I’m doing
Time to start a new
I’m doing, I’m doing
What the fuck can I do?

Stress and failure
Break you down…
Clear your mind
And you’ll come around

All this frustration
It won’t last…
Push it all aside
Soon it’ll pass

All this frustration
It won’t last…
Push it all aside
And soon it will pass

SHIFTING DAYS

Running out of time
Lost all your drive
Gave up your heart
Tore it apart

Never did understand

Running out of time
Lost all your drive
Gave up your heart
Tore it apart

Never did understand

You drained out the spirit
Replaced it with lies
Molded your life
To what you despised
Forgot all your friends
Yeah, you pushed them away
Now you’re gone
But the memories stay
Stop
Now

MAKE A STATEMENT

I think it’s time something’s been said
I think it’s time somebody stood for something

It’s been a few years, nothings changed
It’s been a few years, it’s time for change

Sat back and watched for way too long
Sat back and waited while it went wrong

Now I know where this is headed
Now it’s time to turn this around

I know there are people out there
People that want to learn
I know there are people out there
People who want this change
I know if we put our heads together
We can do this right
I know if we join as one
We can win this fight

Time to use our heads,
Put them back to work
Open your mind
A state of alert

It’s been a few years, nothings changed
It’s been a few years, it’s time for change

Time to face our fears, black them out
Thought if I said it, you wouldn’t want to hear it

Now I know where this is headed
Now it’s time to turn this around

I know there are people out there
People that want to learn
I know there are people out there
People who want this change
I know if we put our heads together
We can do this right
I know if we join as one
We can win this fight

Make a statement

And I know, yeah I know,
It’s time for change
And I know, yeah I know
It’s time for change
And I know, yeah I know,
We’ll make this change,
Yeah I know, yeah I know,
We’ll make this change
We’re gunna make it

SUBSTITUE

Death - is not glamorous
Life - is no experiment
Drugs – can’t take it away
Addiction – makes everyone pay

Needle – pushed through the vein
Poison – right to your brain
Body – left cold and limp
Future – lies on the brink

You -don’t just- kill yourself
Your selfishness- kills everyone else
Can’t point the finger- or pin the blame
Just watch your life – as it slips, slips down the drain

Death – Life – Drugs – Addiction

Needle – pushed through the vein
Poison – right to your brain
Body – left cold and limp
Future – lies on the brink

You -don’t just- kill yourself
Your selfishness- kills everyone else
Can’t point the finger- or pin the blame
Just watch your life – as it slips, slips down the drain

You thought you had this under control
Ignored the signs as they took their fuckin toll
Watched these chemicals destroy your life
Put your family through hell and strife


THE TIME WILL COME

What have you done?
What have you said?
Try to cut me down,
But I’ll still come out ahead
I’ll live my life
With no regrets
Have no concern
For what you accept

Life is full of opposition
Just make’s you stronger
Focus your ambition

What is you direction?
What is your guide?
Think I’ll just ignore it?
Think I’ll let it slide?
Maybe for now,
But count your blessings
Time has its way
You’ll stop your guessing

Life is full of opposition
Just make’s you stronger
Focus your ambition

Keep it up
Your time will come
Keep it up

Life is full of opposition
Just make’s you stronger
Focus your ambition


THEIR SIDE

How do you hide it all, all inside?
How do you look beyond, beyond their eyes?
Don’t you have it in, in your heart?
Or does emotion play, play no part?

Do you really believe a word they say?
I know I won’t see it any other way

You take their lives with no concern
Seem to think they’re yours you’ve earned
You can’t see past your plate
But your decision seals their fate

Think they live there days for you?
Why can’t your mind just break through?
Won’t say I’m flawless or free from guilt
But I won’t just accept all the lies they’ve built

Do you really believe a word they say?
I know I won’t see it any other way

I won’t shut my eyes
I won’t ignore their side

THESE TWO WORDS

Look at where it’s got me
Look at where I’ve gone
Couldn’t live more honest
Couldn’t live more strong

I heard these two words
I never let it go
I heard these two words
It’s the one thing that I know

Molded my life around it
So grateful that I found it
Beliefs that run so deep
Beliefs I’m gunna keep

I heard these two words
I never let it go
I heard these two words
It’s the one
The one thing that I know

These two words
Caught me like a knife
These two words
With me for life
These two words
Lay it out for you
These two words
Only so much I can do


THIRD DEGREE

Sick of all the bullshit
Sick of all the lies
Tired of the faces
Tired of your disguise
Had it up to hear
Can’t take anymore
Heard all these excuses
Heard them all before

I’m tired – I’ve been burned
So tired – I’ve been scarred
I’m tired – healed those wounds
So tired – ripped open again

Sick of all your acting
Sick of all your words
Fed up with your little games
You’ve torn up all my nerves
Thrown away my faith
Been burned too many times
Now I place – my trust
In no one but myself

I’m tired – I’ve been burned
So tired – I’ve been scarred
I’m tired – healed those wounds
So tired – ripped open again

I’m tired, I’m tired, I’m tired
So tired, so tired, so tired

Tired of all your faces – your faces
Tired of all your lies – your lies
Tired of being burned
One too many times – one too many times

I’m tired, I’m tired, I’m tired
So tired, so tired, so tired
I’m tired, I’m tired, I’m tired
So tired, so tired, so tired
Of being burned

Third - degree
Third – degree
Third – degree
Third – degree
Third – degree

WHAT’S RIGHT

Get out of my face
Get out of my sight
Keep pushing and pushing
On the edge of a fight

You’re out of line
Lost hold of your mind
Keep running your mouth
But you’re running out of time

Gotta step back do what’s right
Keep my head held high
Gotta have insight

Get out of my face
Get out of my sight
Keep pushing and pushing
On the edge of a fight

You’re out of line
Lost hold of your mind
Keep running your mouth
But you’re running out of time

Gotta step back do what’s right
Keep my head held high
Gotta have insight

Edge of a fight
Gotta do what’s right
Gotta have insight
Gotta do what’s right

What’s right
