Let You Go

Down below where demons nest
You ask for sleep, you ask for rest
You suggest a back door out of life
Anyway to commit suicide
We all will answer back
To the statement you call a fact
You argue with me
Say "this is how it has to be"
But I won't let you go
I won't let you go.

Overrated Murder

Fresh meat is all that he needs
Just something new to give
Something to make innocence bleed
Something to not live
Anymore

Murdering is so overrated
Torturing is now "in"
Torture the victim until theres nothing left
It will count as the highest sin

Blood trickling down is all he needs
Just something to entertain
Something to make lives bleed
Something to paint a red stain

Stronger douses is all he needs
All he needs to make you bleed
It rounds up the rage inside
To make you bleed on the outside
We can save a life one at a time
We can stop people like him
But if we say we'll do it one at a time
And when we don't, its our own sin.

Mindless Feeling

something i can't reach
something you can teach
but its nothing i want to learn
anything but the pain
anything but this mindless game
cause its nothing i want to play

i guess when i bottled everything up
you were just there when i exploded
i'm not really sorry cause it makes me relieved
it makes me feel good
and i won't give up this feeling for anything

something i can't feel
something you can touch
but its nothing i want to know
anything but the fun
anything but staring at the sun
cause i don't want to hurt your eyes

i guess when i bottled everything up
you were just there when i exploded
i'm not really sorry cause it makes me relieved
it makes me feel good
and i won't give up this feeling for anything

starry nights and hopeless lights
blinding me from above
i don't want to look up, but i do
it changes me so much i can't explain
i guess just crying in front of you opened a new door
and i'm not sure
if i want to close it so soon

i feel mindless
like i'm floating on thin air
my mind is gone, my heart beats
its what i've always yearned to defeat
but now i like it
now i like it


More soon!
Comments/critique is appreciated!

Grandma

It's been 1 month and 6 long days.
And I don't know how many weeks have passed by,
That I don't think about you.
That I don't miss you.

I miss you,
I miss you,
And this never gets any easier,
I miss you,
I miss you,
You're 6 feets underground, but, I swear,
I'm sitting right next to you.

It's been 2 months and 4 long days,
And I don't know how much more my heart can take,
During such a difficult time.
Such a painful time.

Your white hair, ragged and in your face.
Bible by your side, while your heart jumps out of place.
Your son comes to say goodbye,
Such a painful time.

It's been 4 months and 3 long days.
It never gets easier, no matter what they say.
The storm rolls past,
And I'm left to face the fact,
Grandma's gone.

I miss you,
I miss you,
And this never gets any easier,
I miss you,
I miss you,
You're 6 feets underground, but, I swear,
That I'll always remember you.

Wasted Away

Like an empty body bag,
You lay against the wall and sag.
Another night, another drag,
Another day for you to waste away.

You're too weak to cry and plead,
You yearn for freedom - it's all you need.
Another night your mascara bleeds,
Another day for you to waste away.

You smell like cheap champagne.
An aroma they can't burn away.
Picking scabs and watching them bleed.
Your clothes are ripped and torn, my baby.

May the Lord stay with you, child.
For your blood is running wild.

Like a full body bag,
I watch your body sag.
Another night, another drag.
The day you wasted away.

From Blue To Black

This thorn rips through my fingertips,
And blackens my blood inside.
The water in my body turns to stone,
While my heart is pumping white.

My stomach fizzes and burns,
Then explodes without warning.
The sky goes from blue to black,
And steals my precious morning.

Hungover and left in a daze.
My vomit on the bathroom floor.
My head is constantly throbbing,
And I can't take this anymore.

Fill the void with anything,
Just take this drink from me.
Vodka dreams topped with misery,
It stretches as far as I see.

Static filling my hollow brain,
And tears roll down my face.
The sky goes from blue to black,
And I can't take this anymore

Behind the Wheel With You (Bleak)

Driving on and on until we reach the end;
The end of the world.
I'll stay inside this car with you,
And leave everything else behind.

The heat is broke and the ac is shot.
The seats are ripped and the radio's off.

If what I'm saying is just not enough,
And if the circumstances choose to bleed away,
We'll just fight through all the tough times,
And drive through our memories,
I'm behind the wheel with you.

Everything I thought I knew disappears,
And I'm left with you.
Jumping over subway turnstiles,
And throttling the fucking ignition.

The heat is broke and the ac is shot.
The seats are ripped and the radio's off.
But I could care less about our atmosphere.
I'm as good as gold as long as you're here.

You gave me hope when the tunnel was bleak and dark.
You opened my eyes so I could see how beautiful you are.
And if we don't survive this never-ending wild road.
At least I'll die knowing I was never alone.

And now we're running on empty.
And now our hope is, oh, so bleak.
Money has never been a problem,
And now it's our worst enemy.

It Would Be Nice To Have a Life

It would be nice to have a life.
To have friends to hang out with.
But I'll just do what I always do,
Just sit on my fucking ass.

And I feel like no one understands,
And I know they probably don't.
They just can't comprehend,
How someone could live like this.

It would be nice to have a life.
To have something to do during the day.
But I know I'll rot away instead,
Just lose all my sanity.

And I feel like no one cares at all,
And I know they probably don't.
They just don't understand,
How someone could live like this.

It would be nice to have a life,
To have accomplished something great.
But I know that's not for me,
Just simply not for me.

And I feel like tearing my insides out,
And I know I probably will.
No one could understand,
How much somebody can hate themself.

It would be nice to have a life,
I guess I'm just gonna have to try,
Get off my ass and stick my foot out,
And walk away from this.

And I know it'll be a lot of work,
And I know I could always fall.
But I'm in it to win it now,
There's no turning back now.
There's no turning back now.


More soon! =)

Cowboy

Maybe a cowboy,
Or a lost, lost loner,
Just a man who carries a tune.

And he sings that song,
To pass the time,
So the days fly by so soon.

The song for a lover?
Perhaps a sister,
A girl with a beauty of bloom.

Mountains and hills,
Stretching afar,
And as we move closer, they seem to loom.

He will walk away,
And go to his girl,
One of these days, I assume.

And on this day, I'll watch him leave,
Just moving along,
As he sings that simple song.

Lies & Rum

The haze stretches as far as I can see
My daze overwhelms my senses and blackens out everything I try to be.

Is it wrong to change for the better?
Is it wrong that I had told you forever?
Can promises be broken and taken back
After an oath has been swore?

My days are stretching and bleeding
My ways are changing from being close to finished to being nowhere near completed.

Is it wrong to fight for a right?
Is it wrong to go to sleep before the night?
Can I sleep for the rest of my life
And never wake up again?

What we have become
Is drenched in lies and rum
Wrongs and rights
Have never been so mutilated.
When should I come
And change the years of my life?
Everyday is a new battle
That leave my eyes so dilated.

The haze stretches as far as I can see
My daze overwhelms my senses and blackens out everything I try to be.

Song 12 (Written about the MCR song, Disenchanted)

When no one else is around
And being social is 6 feet underground
The old radio is on
And out pours a sad song

The guitar strums and sings
Creating a voice of it's own
The drums come in
And the voice begins to sing

The words are whispered and carried on
Like angels chanting a chorus
The bass vibrates the core
And out comes relaxed words to pour

My breath is taken away
From the beauty of the tune
Beauty like a bed of roses
That were recently in bloom

The music dances and sways
Around my ears like a lullaby
Then lazily returns to the radio
As the track ends and dies

The mood is still in my head
The lyrics don't leave my ears
As the next song begins to play
Song 12 is the one that brought me tears.

Gerard

Why do you have to be so beautiful
So much so that you make my heart melt?
Why do you have to be so far away?
To the point where I can't hold you?
To the point where I can't thank you
For saving me.

Why can't there be more people on this Earth like you?
To make this world a better place.

Standing up for what you believe in
And not giving a fuck about what people say
Loving you is such a softer, softer sin
And I enjoy seeing your face every day.

Why are you so unbelievable?
And every word I use will never describe you.
Why do you have to be so amazing
To the point where I can't breathe?
To the point where I can't stop
Can't stop smileing?
So I just stop trying.

Why do you have to be so beautiful
To the point where I just can't stop smileing?
Why do your eyes have to be so intense
To the point where I can't stop stareing?

If we wanted this world to be a better place
Well, then we would just need more people like you
And why do I keep on writing these sappy songs
About my love for you?

And now I'm watching your face fade away
From the place where I saw you last
And as the minutes pass by through the day
I wish that every second I have with you
Would forever last.


More soon!

Only If

only if i could get out of this house.
and only if i could tell you how i feel.
but you'll never know.
cause i'll never tell.

only if there was more to this.
and only if i had something more to give.
but you'll never see.
cause i'll never show you.
everything that's in my heart.

why do i sit here and write all these lines about you?
catchy numbers and melodies.
and how can you stand here and laugh with me?
like our voices were harmonies.
but i'll never tell,
so you'll never know.
and i'll look back 10 years from now,
and think, 'only if.'

only if i would grow some self-confidence.
and only if you would stop indulging me.
but you'll never know,
cause i'll never tell.

only if there was more to say.
and only if i could kiss your lips.
but that'll never happen,
'cause i'm too afraid.


you mean everything to me.
and i'll burn this town to prove it to you.
i can't go another day,
not knowing if you feel the same way.
not knowing if i'll see your face again.
burn this to ashes, and reserect.

only if you saw this paper,
and only if you read these words.
only if you knew everything i thought about.
but you'll never know,
cause i'll never tell.


More soon! =D

Hideing In Your Room

And you hide in your room,
And talk so soft, I can't hear a thing.
What am I supposed to think,
When you have no love to bring?

Everything's so fucked, I can't even explain,
And all of this hope just brings more pain,
Will it ever go away?
Everything so messed up, I can't even say,
And all of this faith crashes in every way,
Will it ever stop?
Will it ever go away?

And you hide in your room,
And watch your television set.
What am I supposed to do,
When the pills make you forget?

I go and take a long, long walk,
So I don't have to hear you talk,
Every word you say imbedded in my mind,
In such a way, that I know it won't go away.

And you hide in your room,
And talk so soft, I can't hear a thing.
What am I supposed to think,
When you have no love to bring?

Will it ever go away?
In such a way, I know it won't go away.
Will it ever go away?
In such a way, I know it won't go away.
