LYRICS: Hopeless

I’ve walked down these roads
I have learnt to grow
Yet I’m pulled back to the dark
I have taken all
Life has thrown at me
Yet I’m blinded by the dark

Pull back, to the times I thought I could be free
Pull back, to the times I thought I could be me
Hopeless, broken, taken by my dreams
Go back to the times I thought I would be fine
Go back to the times I thought life would be mine
Hopeless, broken, taken by my dreams

I’ve walked down these roads
I have learnt to grow
Yet I’m pulled back to the dark
I have taken all
Life has thrown at me
Yet I’m blinded by the dark

Step back, take a look around the world tonight
Step back, take a look at what I hold inside
Hopeless, broken, shattered dreams within
Look back, is the dark where I want to be
Look back, to the emptiness inside of me
Hopeless, broken, I don’t want to be

I’ve walked down these roads
I have learnt to grow
Yet I’m pulled back to the dark
I have taken all
Life has thrown at me
Yet I’m blinded by the dark

I’ll walk down these roads
I will learn to grow
I will rise above the dark
Maybe you can walk beside me
Hopeless, maybe I won’t be so broken
Hopeless, broken

I will shine through the pain
You will see me again

 

LYRICS: The Wolf

Live. Hunt. Die.
Live. Hunt. Die.
Live. Hunt. Die.
Live. Hunt. Fight.

The Wolf:

Don’t you dare believe in all the fairy tales
Kings and queens cower and bow down below me
I am the hunter, you are the prey
I am the dark crushing the light of your day
I have your fate sealed within the palm of my hands
Your path burns within the ocean you stand
I am the answer to the questions you ask
I am the doctrine you will follow at last

Run and hide, you won’t light the darkness
Black and white, red inside, your mind is
Battered to the point where you can’t return
So embrace me, you still have much to learn

I will hunt you down

I’ll sink my teeth inside
The life you try to hide
I’ll rip your soul out til you bleed
You can try to fight
You know the things that I
Can do and no one can save you from me

Run. Hide. Breathe.
Run. Hide. Breathe.
Run. Hide. Breathe.
Run. Fall.

The Prey:

I can’t give in to the pressure, I won’t resign to all of this
Madness you’ve created. I have to find another way
The water bites into my skin, the red pulls me inside the abyss
You throw me against the walls, and
You keep hunting me, chasing me, hurting me, killing the
Innocence that I am
I keep running and falling and hating the beast that I was
Forced to have become

The water takes a hold of me
And I sink inside the pain
I have so much to lose
But so much more to gain

Push me through the cave
The life I try to save
Is slipping through the song I bleed
Forced to stand and fight
You through the darkness
Til the day my words can break me free

The Wolf:

Don’t you believe you can run away from me
I wear your soul like the prey you’ve made me see
I am your downfall, your hope will speak no truth
You are so alone, I see everything you do
Take a spot with me in the darkness
Take a chance, feel how the power is
Consuming and I’m devouring
Hunting through all surroundings
What do you tell yourself?
What lie can be of help?
You have no escape and
You have no one to call your own

I’ll sink my teeth inside
The life you try to find
I’ll rip your soul out and you’ll bleed
You can try to fight me
But you know that you can’t be
The hunter you were raised to be

I will hunt you down
I am the wolf

(Monologue: Winter)

The door is open, but the light is dying on its way
Tunnel vision induces paranoia
There must be something you can use to save yourself
Time is broken, the hand of fate reaches out to help

The Prey:

You’ve knocked me down
Embracing all of the despair
Do I have anything left in me?
I know that I cannot prepare

Run at me with all you have, the wound I can’t ignore
Is infecting me from the other side, can I win anymore?
The blood rains upon my world
Torrents drifting me to the end
Of the journey, I’ve fallen
And the walls have shut me in

(Chorus)

Cover me in your pain
The life I tried to save
Is now bleeding lifeless from the wounds we made
Sit here, wait and watch
The darkness overcome
The light you thought was your saving grace

Sinking down so deep inside
I have you trapped

 

LYRICS: Downfall

I’m tense but I will stand my ground
Won’t run away again
Don’t care if I win the war
My shattered life I will mend

I’ll pick up my weapons
If everything I dread
Comes charging straight for me
I’ll charge right ahead

Call my name one more time
Say my prayers, I will fight
Before my downfall
Before my downfall

Blood dripping, my vision blurred
The pain flows through my veins
Stumble down, kicked around
This isn’t over yet

I’ll get back on my feet
There is something I must do
I’ll fight through the silence
To reach you

Call my name one more time
Say my prayers, I will fight
Call my name one more time
Say my prayers, I will fight
Before my downfall
Before my downfall

Call my name one last time
In this war, we will rise
Call my name one last time
Rise my friend, we will fight
For their downfall
For the downfall
Into the downfall
We’ll rise above all

LYRICS: Winter

Why do you worry? I am right here
Why do you feel empty? The cold is so near
I’ll be your winter

Child do you see them, fall in your hands?
Snowflakes and colours, they smile in their dance
They smile in your joy

Promise me you’ll never hurt yourself
Promise me you’ll never hurt yourself
Take all the cold has to give
Promise me child you will live

I’ll be your winter
I’ll be your winter
I’ll be your winter
I’ll be your winter

Open the pages, read through their words
The friends who have taught you to let go of your hurt
Show them your scars

Run through the snow field, run through the night
The day has been woken, run into sunlight
Run into its arms

Tell me you won’t hurt yourself anymore
Tell me you won’t hurt yourself anymore
Open your heart to the world
Open your heart, it’s your turn

It will always be winter
It will always be winter
It will always be winter
It will always be winter

And we will take you home
And we will take you home

LYRICS: Sea of Red

A drop of your soul taints
The pictures of your grace
The sea of red will wash away the peace you crave
You’ve started something you
Can’t ever hope to end
My sea of red will suffocate
In every way

I see you, standing on the edge
Standing on the edge of denial
I see you, waiting for the flood
Waiting for the flood to wash away escape

Still so blind, here you lie
And you can’t see
Why your walls, why your walls
Are closing in
Take a step, have you felt
Yourself sink inside

The sea of red  

Pictures, memories
Fossils in your mouth
The storm rains down, the sea of red
Clench your fist so tight
Hold that rage behind
The smile that digs inside of your face
Sinking down so deep inside
The sea of red

I feel you reaching out to me
Your cuts they do not bleed
Your cuts they sing
I see the words they say to me
But they bleed into the sea
Oh the pain they bring

The water’s cold, you’ve grown old-
-er and you know
What it is we can do
When you are gone
Take a while, to decide what to say
But remember that you lay

Inside the sea of red

Searing crimson lies
You tell yourself but I
Am here so what
Are you gonna choose?
Freedom lies behind
The past you’ve left inside
The ocean that has taken you
You’ve been lost
I’ve found you

A drop of my soul taints
The life you can’t regain

LYRICS: Child

It was your hand that struck my face
Not some stranger’s on the street
My tears were not a farce
Is it too much to be me?

And then you drown me in affection
Should I forget just what you did?
I stand here as a child
What am I to believe in?

Light, that’s what you’re supposed to be
Fight, It’s what instincts are telling me
So I will fight all your love, your affection and
I will fight when you lay your hand on me

And then you drown me in affection
I can’t forget what you did
I stand here as your child
The door is locked, the walls are empty

Take my innocence away from me
Infuse it with the red that I breathe
Raise me up to submit
To the mind that viciously bleeds all over me
The fallacy is breaking me
Listen to me please

All I ever wanted was some understanding
I hear the fault within the hurt
All I ever wanted was a space to speak
But I didn’t know how to start
All I wanted was a chance to be me
All you did was hurt and break me
Now I’m shackled and I can’t break free
I only wish that you had found me

And I feel so lost in my home
Only recalling what you did
I’ve grown much older now
Innocence has finally left me

It was your hand that struck my face
I’ve been holding it inside
Don’t trust the smile I give
Just know that I have tried

LYRICS: Polluted Love

Sitting here, breathing in the noise
Polluted love, toxic hopes inside
Watching you, lenses on our hearts
Searching for, pieces of the stars

Take apart, the essence of who we are
You want to ignite me with your art
Break inside the prison of my skyline
Horizons are blinding to the scars

Your eyes are deserts and scorching suns
Blinding me, thought you a shooting star
Will life take me? I’m a planet without a star
I’ve been wishing that you would
Pick me apart

Pick apart, the essence of who we are
Will you ignite me, with your art?
Break inside the prison of our skyline
Stars are so blinding, horizons apart

Sitting here, silence all the noise
Polluted love

Breathe it all inside.
