I am the disgusted piece of dirt on the floor that won't let you fall won't let you fall down You are the angel that holds me up You scare me when you die When you die *This circle that we run Is bending and breaking This circle that we build Is dying This is my fate This is my destiny In this mud that I walk through This is my life This is my dying life Save the feeling you have right now It's going down That color that bleeds Bleeds right down your leg I have just killed it all There are times When I want to Spit it out Bleed it out * This perfect circle you spin Shiny and new Cracked and torn This circle you spin This perfect circle you spin This perfect circle you spin *

It's the darkness that hurts the most Maybe because I'm lost Asleep on piles of leaves The raspy voice of night I've lost my need to fight *I'm a designated killer Knifer of my own dreams Stabbing at my wounds Bleeding on my knees I'm a designated killer Snow covers me like a quilt Boxes of my shame sewn together The fear I've always felt But one day I'll struggle and be alive Away from my deathly straps Breathing more than just lost fire And using my last breath * Afraid to look on into the black-blue sky I'm waiting for myself to die It's the darkness that hurts the most *

My hands are melting away You have this power over me I can never have the feeling I will never see the sun rising The way it did for you that day I am the taker You are what I bleed In the fires I find what I need Just tell me the reason behind it all You have the answers that I need What I was supposed to be You have this power over over me I am the taker You are what I bleed In the fires I find what I need This little dream in my hand How the world was supposed to turn How my eyes were supposed to see I am the taker You are what I bleed In the fires I find what I need That was the beginning And now this is the end This is slowly crashing down on me Crashing all around me

Release Me If I can't remember your name And I can't see your face In darkness I feel I can't remember I can't describe this This wholly lonely feeling Don't leave me alone Don't leave me alone Breakin through and the river runs Above the screams that I have become Release me Release me Rip all and the color flows End this life that I've ever known Release me Release me To end this life that's been given to me To start again and try to relive the past Clean up and start again Fill me up and start again Breakin through and the river runs Above the screams that I have become Release me Release me Rip it all and the color flows End this life that I've ever known Release me Release me Don't leave me alone *

Looking through these eyes of mine The sun turns grey No good, no evil no night, no day *Go away from me run so far don't let me drag you down And these arms that grab you tight I try to hold on to life It's all slipping away slipping slowly away Living just to breath *

We came from This dark abyss This rolling thunder And this crying rain In the darkness In the shadows In the light BEneath the sunrise The blood falls down *The big black hole Keep walking 2x Whenever we stopped here this giant wall the ocean opened wide lost in the silver tide Crushing feelings Beaten reasons all trying BEneath the sunrise The blood falls down *The big black hole keep swimming 2x Keep looking for the end of the story The end of the beginning the end of it all Breathing slowly And sleeping deeply

Blue skies remind me Blue eyes crying sweet nothings I have tasted the evil In your blood Echoes Remind me It's time to... *Red Paint drying on my wrists In my eyes These dying feelings I still deny I'm bleeding The thoughts that scare me at night I'm bleeding happiness that you provide It's leaving me Such pretty little wings Flying in the red light The sun bleeds out the sky The sound of your body crashing feel the heat the sun bleeds out the sky * delusional I've been waiting for this moment all these years Run for the fires Run for your life Keep the secrets I hold Keep the lies Smells like dirt again Dirt you carry in your soul
9.
If this was the end of the universe Big Blasts in the sky Would I run to you Would I say goodbye? I just pray to die * In this darkest of days In the brightest of lies You will believe all I say In this darkest of days In the brightest of lies You will believe all I say Look at my eyes And listen to these words I will protect you forever I will keep you alive * In the darkest of days In the brightest of lies You will believe all I say In the darkest of days In the brightest of lies You will believe all I say In the final hours While I run to the sun I will keep you alive Tomorrow we die *In this darkest of days In the brightest of lies You will believe all I say In this darkest of days In the brightest of lies You will believe all I say You will believe You will believe All I say

Rain by Jacinda Espinosa In the red rain My best meaning falling down, I know it's what I need. In the red rain I can almost taste your blood, feel it on my skin And she said "The world is falling down like broken glass" Our heads, upturned, will find the worst of it before the night is done. I'll take my chances out amongst the worst of them. The king will have his crown, and I'll be shattered once again. Hear the red rain Trickling like waterfalls and forcing every breath In the red rain She's holding out her hands and I am singing once again. These dreams are running down, down, down, down, They're my last chance to give you One more trick to remember me by. I think you need me too and I'll be holding my breath These dreams of ours will crack and never be the same.
