Piece By Piece
I found these plastic parts and wires,
Lets split me open at the seams…
And rip out everything inside,
Make room for all these new machines…
Sew me up and pray that I survive.
A brand new me…
Piece by piece…

Stay here and watch me bleed, watch me bleed…
It's a brand new me,
Piece by piece, piece by piece…

I'll leave a black tear in the sky,
To help you remember what you've seen.
And then I'll set this place on fire,
Just break and burn down everything.
I'm made of plastic parts and wires now,
I won't feel anything.
Start the countdown...
Just make me fall asleep.

Stay here and watch me bleed, watch me bleed…
It's a brand new me,
Piece by piece, piece by piece…

My flesh, my bones, my blood,
They hold my hate, my love.
They hold my hate, my pain...
Just take a breath and walk away...

Stay here and watch me bleed, watch me bleed…
It's a brand new me,
Piece by, piece by, piece by, piece by piece…back to top
I Will Breathe Fire
I am just a needle in your arm.
I am just the skin around a scar.
I am like a pill to help you heal.
I was only trying
To make you feel something.
I will
Breathe fire,
Never stop to think about myself.
I'll just keep holding on
To everything for everybody else...
You wasted every chance you ever had.
So when did you give up
And grow so sad?
You know that I can't push the world aside.
If only I could stop and
Turn back time
I would...
You are watching the fall of an empire!
Send the soldiers home!
And as the flags come down
A new king is crowned.
Woke up on a beach.
I stared at the blue...
And I watched the waves
Come and
Overtake you.back to top
The Panic
Hold me until my head is clear again.
Cross off the names
Of all who died here,
And I'll become the sacred faith you lost.
I'm thinking...
Every second changes everything
In my life.
Every second changes everything -
The panic will see me through.
Naked, exposed our only fears tonight.
Scratches, vomit, I'm sleeping here again,
And I will
Wake up with a purpose,
I will be free -
I'm thinking...
Every second changes everything in my life
Every second changes everything -
The panic will see me through.
I think of all the shit you said,
You made me hate myself again.
Then you say you're sorry...
I can't take this anymore.
You were wrong
And I was right by your side...
Every second changes everything
In my life...
Every second changes everything -
The panic will see me through.
Every second changes everything
In my life.back to top
When It's All Burning
Strata - When It's All Burning
Submitted by - Eric


When It's all burning... when it's over...
When it's all said and done,
were we ever even alive?
This keeps repeating in my head-
We should prepare for the worst...
When it's all burning... will we see clearly?
Will we suffer at all?
Oh, it'll be perfect - running scared...
This keeps repeating in my head-
We should prepare for the worst...
The sky is falling - people running scared...
This could be better for the world.
When it's all said and done,
Who will remember you?
When it's all coming down,
Who will remember me?
This keeps repeating in my head-
We should prepare for the worst...
The sky is falling - people running scared...
This could be better for the world.
This keeps repeating in my head-
We should prepare for the worst...back to top
Just Like Silk
I cured you once... you will live...
But you can't lead yourself on your own...
What did you hope to see inside
(everything?)
What can we fit between the lines?
(You owe me)
We can run but we can't hide...
And I trust you to wait
'Til I chase you away
You'll come back and settle this,
You can do no wrong...
You're looking a lot like
Mother Mary -
yeah, you talk a lot... like Christ.
You taste so much like God to me now...
You feel so much like silk.
(Feel so much like silk...)
But I trust you to wait
(you can't turn around.
I need you too much for this)
'Til I chase you away
You'll come back and settle this
You can do no wrong...
In my eyes you can do no wrong...
In my eyes you can do no wrong...
In my eyes you can do no wrong...
(In my eyes,
You can do no wrong...)
You're just like silk.
I'd kill you first, Guilty One -
This is hurt... Push it through,
Guide me -
Push it through,

We've Changed
Did I wear you out?
We're you overwhelmed?
We're you dead all along?
Can you open up, just enough
to heal yourself and start again?
Well I'm sorry
I won't be there...

(Chorus)
And we've changed
It's not the same anymore
You drag me down
Over and over
Over and Over again

When I wrapped you up in plastic, take you home
I loved you more than I had ever loved anyone.
But it hurts too much to think about today,
I never should have let you see me
lying here this way.

I'm Sorry
I'm Sorry
I'm Sorry

Peace can look like a riot sometimes,
But I'm clean inside and starting over.

We can't hold on
We can't hold on

(Chorus)back to top
Never There
I am on the brink of losing everything
Hanging on the edge of every word she says
And you were never there
You were never there

She stabs deep into me
Am I too blind to see what this has done to me
She stabs deep into me
Am I too numb to feel this anymore

You were the one who could save me
You were the one who abandoned me

I am patiently waiting here to see
Which of us survives
When all of this collides with reality

She stabs deep into me
Am I too blind to see what this has done to me
She stabs deep into me
Am I too numb to feel this anymore

You were never there.back to top
Today
There's not much to it... pretty sure its all correct.



My future seems so full of life
And brighter now than it has ever been,
But somehow I just can't allow
My shell to crack
And let the sun shine in...
Today I feel so sick
Today I feel comfortable with this
If I should die before you
I'll always be around to guide you
In your center you'll find me
And in the sky as a star still shining
But if If i can't pick myself back up
Just enough to see above the haze
My family buries the middle son
The church bells ring,
They don't know what to say...
They don't say anything at all...
The silence takes control of me
There's violence in my circuitry
And one day I won't feel so sick
But first comes the fall...back to top
Waiting
Strata - Waiting
Submitted by - Eric


sell your story
make it interesting
this part's the war scene
the soundtrack: a symphony
and sometime soon
you'll miraculously save me
and we'll have our
hollywood-style ending -
sometimes I feel
like I'm drowning -
waiting - waiting for you
still breathing
each breath for you...
We cut to the next scene
she smiles, says to me
I know you would
never desert me
'Cos you'd kill yourself
before you'd hurt me
car crash / lights flash
a laugh track
we fade to black
sometimes I feel
like I'm drowning -
now - stop for a second:
I just realized
that if I have time
to look back,
then I'm not running fast enough
and I'm tired of waiting...back to top
You Are Eternal
I'm all ready.
Come on
and

take me
through it all...
Please lay down -
You're eternal
I'll never forget you...
For as long as we live
And forever after,
I will remember
You are eternal...
So don't let them
see you bleed or cry
And don't let up-
you'd leave us cold...
You're eternal
I'll never forget you...
For as long as we live
And forever after,
I will remember
You are eternal...
So, don't cry. (No, don't cry...)
For as long as we live and forever after,
I will remember, you are eternal...back to top
In a Sweet Dream
Strata - In A Sweet Dream
Submitted by - Eric

you probably wish you were
anywhere but here...
remember this now 'cos it soon will disappear
you'll find yourself wishing
you're anyone but you.
I'm starting to wish I were
anyone but me.
and I will be broken by this...
as soon as you wake you will
find me on my way.
and soon when it's safe you may
find a love again.
and I will be broken by this
sweet dream
but it's all I have.
seems that it, oh it
always bleeds like this
when nothing's wrong
but nothing feels right
you're knocked down and dying,
you'll stand right back up
and you'll fall all alone...
all in this...
sweet dream
it's all I have
a sweet dream
it's all I have
it's the finest moment that you've ever had.
like a fallen star in the palm of your hand.
a sweet dream
it's all I have
a sweet dream
it's all I've got...back to top
