The Fight

 

Stand up and Fight

 

Once gone.  You stay.

 

Don’t do what you’re thinking

 

There’s no coming back from that so you know.

 

My guess you’ve been drinking.

 

I’ve come here to beg you not to go

 

All the time you’ve thought its right

 

To feel messed up, hated, as you fall to pieces

 

Telling you I’m on your side 

 

Now we’re rising slowly time to 

 

Stand up, stand up and fight

 

Who knows why we face things

 

I’ve always noticed her to be strong 

 

She’s down in the basement 

 

And I’m standing here wondering what went wrong

 

All the time you’ve thought its right

 

To feel messed up, hated, as you fall to pieces

 

Telling you I’m on your side 

 

Now we’re rising slowly time to 

 

Stand up, stand up and fight

 

I know you’re in pain

 

How can you see straight this way

 

I know you’re ashamed

 

I just want to tell you right now.

 

I think you’re wonderful.  You’re so young

 

Wonderful.

 

All the time you’ve thought its right

 

To feel messed up, hated, as you fall to pieces

 

Telling you I’m on your side 

 

Now we’re rising slowly time to 

 

Stand up, stand up and fight

 

I know you’re in pain

 

How can you see straight this way

 

I know you’re ashamed

 

Beginning to change…

 

I will wait for you to come back

 

I will stay with you right here

Letter to Fear

 

I have really come to hate you.

 

See I don’t wanna be the one walking faithless

 

And you just wanna hold the gun, empty, bonus

 

And I don’t wanna be the one to play your game

 

And I don’t wanna be the one that’s gone insane

 

Hold truth, we’ll make it.  You’re evil and faceless

 

You tried all of the reasons inside

 

And all those frustrations defied 

 

Along with those demons that hide

 

Inside…

 

You’ve been living, loathing, laughing

 

I’ve been trading, trying, trusting

 

You tried all of the reasons inside

 

All the frustrations defied

 

Along with the demons that hide

 

You’ve been living, loathing, laughing

 

I’ve been trading, trying, trust

My Ending

 

Bury the fallen that won’t matter to me

 

Carry the broken, don’t ever let them see

 

The stories you told me I’ve still been wondering why

 

Wait for the chosen, that’s just been far too trying

 

I can’t find my ending, I’ve been way to gone 

 

But I told you once my friend how I’ve been lost and lonely

 

And I have found your eyes stare, and I will pay for this

 

But I’ll tell you once again 

 

How I’ve felt down and that I’m bound to you.

 

Bound to you

 

Words never spoken that won’t matter to me

 

Knife for the swollen, don’t ever let them bleed

 

The stories you told me I’ve still been wondering why

 

Wait for the chosen, that’s just been far too trying

 

I can’t find my ending, I’ve been way to gone 

 

But I told you once my friend how I’ve been lost and lonely

 

And I have found your eyes stare, and I will pay for this

 

But I’ll tell you once again 

 

How I’ve felt down and that I’m bound to you.

 

Bound to you. Bound to you. 

 

I want you to break

Favored

 

Slaves do what they’re told to

 

This bondage will hold true

 

Shaken, broken, start clanking those chains

 

A freedom disposal, absorbed by their own way of thinking 

 

Controlled by those self centered lies

 

I don’t want to be with you, I just want to know the truth

 

I don’ want to live and die to show you that I have no freedom

 

I don’t want to live a lie, I just need this by my side

 

I don’t want to try and pay the price he paid in full for freedom.

 

We’re Favored

 

They don’t know what that means

 

We’re Favored

 

Spaces I long to be

 

We’re Favored 

 

Shouting to all who believe

 

You’re favored 

 

but you gotta stop doubting, stop doubting

 

Do all that’s been told you 

 

Stop trusting your own way that’s wasted and broken

 

Those dead works will fail 

 

I don’t want to be with you, I just want to know the truth

 

I don’ t want to live and die to show you that I have no freedom

 

I don’t want to live a lie, I just need this by my side

 

I don’t want to try and pay the price he paid in full for freedom.

 

We’re Favored

 

They don’t know what that means

 

We’re Favored

 

Spaces I long to be

 

We’re Favored 

 

Shouting to all who believe

 

You’re favored 

 

but you gotta stop doubting, stop doubting

 

Now let us cross with this bridge back to life

 

I’ll turn from my ways and stop doubting

 

These eyes are ready to see

Wind & Waves

 

I’m tortured by the wind and the waves

 

The storm beats down now on top of the graves

 

We’re standing tall prepared for the rain

 

Gotta tell you something the sheltered sustained

 

In a world below 

 

Rots the ones that try to steal hope

 

And a land we know

 

Hides the force that won’t reveal them

 

I won’t choke on the pain, be burned by the flame

 

I’m trying but there’s something that I need you to say

 

Not crushed by the weight, not scared of a fate

 

I’m trying and there’s something that I need you to be

 

I’m tortured by the wind and the waves

 

The storm beats down now on top of the graves

 

We’re standing tall prepared for the rain

 

Gotta tell you something the sheltered sustained

 

When I thought I’d die

 

When I thought I can’t remember

 

Fire burns inside

 

Torches all these fallen legions

 

I won’t die by their blade, nor suffer their shame

 

Gut churning and there’s something that I need you to say

 

Not crushed by the weight, not given to fate

 

Still trying but there’s something that I need you to be

 

I’m tortured by the wind and the waves

 

The storm beats down now on top of the graves

 

We’re standing tall prepared for the rain

 

Gotta tell you something the sheltered sustained

 

We won’t bow down to kings on thrones

 

We won’t sell out to skin and bone.

Fallacy

 

Fool to believe them

 

Thought that fear in something was better than nothing

 

You fought to know me, now I’m running slowly 

 

I’ve been in your sights, inside.

 

Messing with a life, inside

 

Stone faced and eyes jaded

 

I know you’re wrong for me.

 

Can’t take it, barely breathing 

 

Found out your fallacy

 

How you’ve been living a lie

 

Cruel can’t describe them

 

Taught that pain from something was better than nothing

 

You fought to show me how I’m so unholy 

 

I’m still in your sights, inside

 

You’re messing with a lie, inside

 

Stone faced and eyes jaded

 

I know you’re wrong for me.

 

Can’t take it, barely breathing

 

Found out your fallacy

 

How you’ve been living a lie
