To End the Rapture
The wind of life and air from above smells of death.
Angels sing of the end.
Nothing you say and nothing you try will change time.
Human race prepares to die...back to top
Turn the Other Way
Slit my wrists, take away the pain.
Slit my throat, everyoneís to blame.
Lost in the fields of confusion.
Restless nights, they're not far away.
I came here for something and I'm not turning back.
A calm piece of mind but you still hold my keys.
Keeping my fate deep within your threshold.
Petty inconvenience but it means the world to me.
You have the power.
To set me free.
Caught in your grasp, how?
Just let me be.
Give me control out.
Out of these depths.
A fiery hell.
I pray for death.
I've been the wrong one time and time again.
Now I'm on my knees forgive me please.
Tore out my heart and handed to me on a silver platter.
Sew up the hole, emptiness in the place of compassion.
You made me this way.
I am the product of your creation.
Look the other way.
Now you've turned your back on me.
You've turned away from me, the future's much to far away to see.
I hope you learn the truth,
not the way things were meant to be with me and you.back to top
Darkness Surrounding
Darkness coats us.
The smell of fall.
Changing season.
The graveyard is alive, black cat across my path,
the chill of cold wind, the breath of the dead.
Imprisoned souls.
Trapped for eternity.
Black crows break the silence.
The garden of the deadís alive tonight and you can't stop it.
Just enjoy it.
Open up your mind and you will feel it too.
The sound, the touch, the thoughts, that you've been so blind to.
You can feel the thoughts of the dead.
Feeling the thoughts of the dead.
True or false, it's still there, teaching me.
True or false, still there, teaching me.
You can feel it tonight.
The wood has rotted away.
Take the time absorb it.
Their time is slipping away.
Stone all carved by hand.
Statues that resemble their faces.
They still breathe.
Come join us.
Smell the burning emberís, night flickering away.
Timeless but soon gone.
Timeless but soon gone.
I can find myself, alone with just my thoughts.
As time crumbles away.
As I crumble away.back to top
The Art of Subconscious Illusion
A living nightmare, asleep but still aware.
The endless torture.
The painless pleasure.
I grasp myself.
Trying to regain control.
I experience and learn.
In another faction of my mind.
So confused.
But everything makes perfect sense.
Canít feel the pain.
Emotional painís so much deadlier.
Lost, youíve just been raped.
Pain. Your friends canít help you.
Why wont they help you? Another reality.
This canít be happening.
Why is this happening?
Who the fuck are you?
Who the fuck. Are you?
Trying hard to figure out whatís done.
I scramble but now I run.
The images in my head.
All the problems that Iíve been fed.
Punching slowly my mind canít change the speed.
As my victims bleed.
No matter what I do or how hard I try.
I canít use my abilities.
Use my abilities.
Art of Illusion.
My razor sharp knifeís edge, pierces my victimís body.
But I canít take their soul.
Punching through jello, stabbing not killing.
Disappointment. Discomfort.back to top
We Come Out at Night
Black and gray clouds willow in the balance as the sun falls.
Rain plays a heart warming tune, on the pavement.
Emotions stir.
A feeling of warmness, compassion, fullness, I feel at home.
Disguised by surroundings.
As the torn and left in the gutter seek vengeance on their mistreated lives.
As the torn and left in the cold, seek vengeance on mistreated lives.
A silhouette stands still.
A cactus on a warm summer night.
But the rain falls cold and the moon shines bright.
Black as night.
Cold as ice.
Warm as home.
Ready to live.
Stars they shoot.
In a clear.
Across the sky.
As does my time.
Waiting, wanting, feeling, emotion.
Crying, breaking, loving, nothing.
Clouds swallow the moon, and Iím alone,
thinking good times, and why'd they go?
Falling down, breaking down parts of me.
Fuck. I need this place to get away from you.back to top
Lips of Deceit
The mark I breathe on you.
Itís burning through your soul.
The breath I waste.
Losing control.
I bleed in pain.
Testing what I know.
Lips soaked in deceit.
Pull me from here.
No oneís innocent.
So why do I feel bad?
But guilt keeps creeping, creeping up on me.
Guilt. Tearing me up inside.
The innocent.
An evil in disguise.
The face of beauty to fall for.
I fall to my knees, deceitful.
Brought down by feelings of regret.
Again your mind has failed the test.
Not everyone feels the same.
Pacifist blinded by the game.
Stand tall. Theyíll break your heart.
Stand tall. Theyíll smash your ego.
Stand tall. Theyíll tear you down.
Stand tall. Scar your soul.
Break your thought.
Fuck your mind.
The mark I breathe on you.
Itís burning through your soul.
The breath I waste.
Losing control.
I bleed in pain.
Testing what I know.
Lips soaked in deceit.
Pull me from this hole.back to top
Warmness on the Soul
Your hazel green tint eyes watching every move I make
And that feeling of doubt, it's erased
I'll never feel alone again with you by my side
You're the one, and in you I confide
And we have gone through good and bad times
But your unconditional love was always on my mind
You've been there from the start for me
And your loves always been true as can be
I give my heart to you
I give my heart, cause nothing can compare in this world to you
Whoa...
And we have gone through good and bad times
But your unconditional love was always on my mind
You've been there from the start for me
And your loves always been true as can be
I give my heart to you
I give my heart, cause nothing can compare in this world to you
Whoa...
I give my heart to you
I give my heart, cause nothing can compare in this world to you
Whoa...back to top
An Epic of Time Wasted
So much time I've wasted.
I can truly say I never thought it would come to this.
Never would I doubt you, but the truth kept smacking me in the face.

Re-al-i-ty.

You never stopped to think and you ripped us apart.
How could you?

Now our time is gone but it's still breaking my heart.

Tears run down as I think of the days we've had,
and the memories will last forever,
but you and I have died and gone our separate ways.

You are the one.
You are the wrong one.
Breaking the mold.
Going your own way. Go!

All I feel, betrayal.

So much time I've wasted, and I never thought it'd come to this.
So much time I've wasted, and I never thought it'd come to this.
So much time I've wasted, and I never thought it'd come to this.
So much time I've wasted, and I never thought it'd come to this.

We had something great, then it was washed away.
We had something more, than I can explain.
Iím sorry.

No! We had something great, then it was washed away.
No! Not all friendships last, the genuine are harder to take.
No! Time to start again, hope someday you'll think of me.
No! The end reality, I know someday I'll think of you.back to top
Breaking Their Hold
Avenged Sevenfold - Breaking Thier Hold




When you see them coming in form.
And they say they do whatís best for you.
Fighting for one total control.
They are planned and organized for you.
Breaking their hold. Breaking their hold of control they strive.
To keep you down, behind your back, the time has come, the end is near.
It's when you sleep, so late at night, and in the light, getting prepared.
It's not to help you, but help their cause, under one system, you wont exist.
They are the few, with all the power,
our system screams, we can't let them tear our hearts out.
Screaming, pulling on our pride.
Stand together for the right cause, one system to our demise.back to top
Forgotten Faces
Forgotten faces.
Lost in yesterdays realm.
Drained with confusion.
Where did it all go?
Look into the past, look into their faces.
Never, the thought of being time fucked.
But now theyíre all gone and all thatís left is this blank faced picture.
Ninety percent, nothing was done, nothing accomplished,
coasting through life didnít seize the day.
No one ever realized that theyíre already dead.
By the time you realize, youíll be dead too.
Without another chance to save the world,
these things theyíre gone, your gone, forgotten.
Now your face in my picture frame. Itís gone, forever.
Right before my very eyes.
And just when I thought I made light of things.
It slips away, into darkness.
My life passes now I see.
Just what this world does hold for me.
Itís getting hard, harder to breathe.
Am I out of time is that what this means?
Well thatís what it means.
Thatís what it means, you and me try to breathe.
Now you. Realize.
Your life, flies by.
Now I. Realize.
My life, I die.back to top
Thick and Thin
I donít want to know.
And I donít want to see you in this place.
Your kind is a disgrace as I spit in your face.
And I donít want to hear anymore.
A friend is fucked with while heís having fun on the dance floor.
Get the fuck out of here now.
Come on you kids, stand your ground.
This is your show, itís your family.
All of my friends there for me.
Thereís four-hundred more of us then them.
So kick them out.
Keep it positive.
Keep it real.
Keep it true.
Together with my friends.
Iíll be there for you.
Through the problems thick and thin and problems weíll fight through.
This is to my brothers, Iíll be there for you.
Through the problems thick and thin and problems weíll fight through.
This is to my family.
Iíll be there for you.back to top
Streets
You live your whole life staring at a wall, your mind goes blank sooner now you will fall.
You never learned the things you say to know now, but how?
There seems to be a difference, two different types of kids.
The ones who go out and the ones that are taught to live.
One groups taught how and the other group is taught why.
There's no need to tell you what's in my mind, but in the game of life I'm doing fine.
No reason to tell you which way to be.
Cause the streets have opened my eyes to see.
Look whatís happening now.
What are the reasons why and how?
And don't you think it sounds stupid when someoneís treated
different cause they're not the same as me or you?back to top
Shattered By Broken Dreams
Avenged Sevenfol - Shattered By Broken Dreams




I see you fading away from us.
I'll miss you very much.
Room with empty bottles, broken dreams,
and pride still running high, always on your side.
But I wanted more for you.
You can't go on this way.
And now I see it all fall through.
We pray for better days.
Stuck alone and scared.
Throw your life away and now choking on your pride may be the only way.
I don't want to see you like this.
We all tried to save you but missed.
I still feel the hope on your road.
Now come back to us like the days of the old.
I still feel you there, trying to get on top.
You'll always have my support, in my heart.
People you've hurt.
Friends that you've lied to.
But we understand, and thatís not (you) can see the end of the road,
I can see it too, for you, I'm scared, if I lose you, I'm not prepared.
This time, if you die.
I watch you, right before my eyes.
Just trust me, and listen.
You have no self control.
This will take your life.
Overdose and then indulge until you die.
Pondering, we all ask the question why.
Broken home, and then abandoned by your dad.
And we are left the only family that you've ever had.
Help you see it through.
Fight this me and you.
Reaching deep inside.
Problems not just you is what we find.
Our friendship makes it mine.back to top
