Every Dream Is Gone.Help me wither away from this darkened place,
Make me feel alone for another night,
Make me feel afraid of the dark
And take all of my light away.
Refuse to believe that I have strength
And take complete control,
Make me feel week in order to live,
Make me small, make me a coward, and make me fall to sleep.
Tell me lies, make me frightened,
Tell me about how there's just fire below
And nothing to catch me when I fall,
Make me bleed from the hurtful words.
Help me gather my doubts and help me crush myself,
Help me figure out that there's just darkness, no light,
Help me spell an end to this dreaming that I do...
Then make me forget them all; every dream is gone.
The Thought That Doesn't Leave Me.I love you, sweet girl
You're beauty that I long for,
With beautiful eyes
I see you look at me now
Wanting to tell me your thoughts.
You say that one thing
That I was afraid to hear,
"I am so sorry
But right now is not the time
For us to be together."
But now that I know
That it will never happen
I know what to do...
Tell you that you're beautiful
And tell you that your are bright.
Tell you that I love
Every single slow second
That I get to spend
With this lovely girl I see
Standing next to me right now.
I do this with hope...
Hope that you will see, that you
And me can thrive now
In each others arms so tight,
Whispering those sweet nothings.
It really is sad
Because you will never be
The same to me now,
I fear that it's too late, so
I guess I'll walk away now.
But before I do
I want you to know one thing,
You are the beauty,
You are my flame that burns bright,
The thought that doesn't leave me.
Diary of a MinerI sit here and ponder on all of those things
That make me cringe and smile,
But all of those things make me want to run
Because I can’t escape this place.
No matter how hard I try
And no matter how fast
These rocks fall down
I still chase after my dreams.
“Whenever I hear the melodies cheer
I cry myself to sleep…
And still I wonder when this will all come crashing down.”
I hear their soft sounding chirps…
The lullaby for the lonely man,
The miner’s bliss, a sound, not a hiss
I sink back into my mind…
Now there’s something that I need to find.
But these birds, they pick me up,
They lift me up into the clouds
So far above with lovely sounds,
These birds, they set me free,
As I fly in the clouds
I see what I couldn’t be;
A man who was meant to be free.
NightmareI am the one who sees fear pour out of your eyes at night
And the one who makes you cringe when you see mine,
My eyes glow with hatred and silence
While your eyes glisten from a cluster of tears.
You cannot truly see me until your eyes have been shut
So tight that they race down like iron doors falling from the sky,
The noise startles you, but does not wake you
Because the deepest sleep has just begun.
I am the nightmare, I am the pain
I am the one who will drive you insane,
I am the killer, the murderer of dreams
A killer whose plans are to make you scream.
Around every corner I sit there waiting for you
Creating new worlds for my games to commence,
And I listen to you talk in your sleep, screaming…
No, no, NOOO! Then I simply cover your mouth and tell you a secret.
This is not a game you can win; this is not a level you can beat,
This is not a life you can live without glass in your feet,
This is not a world you can imagine yourself
Cause the night terror will take over with s
Break The Magic Mirror.Look into your eyes through a cracked mirror and tell yourself that you aren’t broken
But simply viewed as broken because the one thing that lets you see yourself was broken before you,
And tell yourself that you are worth something and everything to everyone in some way
Because the only thing not worth a cent is that mirror that you are gazing into.
The mirror has played tricks with so many unfortunate minds before you,
Making them believe that every crack and crevice and smudge belonged to their face and person,
This mirror is part of a magic trick, smoke and mirrors, trap doors and cards,
This mirror has more tricks up its sleeve for you.
It will pull them out every time you have a tiny sliver of doubt for it,
Telling yourself that this mirror does not own you or your face, just your knowledge to come,
It will retaliate with more shards from its core, shooting out to stab you,
Scaring your face making its false statements true, this mirror tries to take over you.
These Past Weeks.These past weeks have been the best
Although I know that they could end in a flash,
And I know you may just want to leave it all behind
But I'll never forget it, cause it changed my life.
Every second that our lips touched
I felt a little bit of my heart heal,
I felt it explode in my chest...
I felt as if I slipped out of my mind, and straight into yours.
I would gladly give up this gift, my power to write
Just to hold you for another long night,
And I would give up my heart for you
Just to know if I could trust you to hold it,
But now, as far as I'm concerned, you've had it from the first kiss.
A Lack Of Color. DCFCAnd when I see you
I really see you upside down,
But my brain knows better,
It picks you up and turns you around.
Turns you around, turns you around.
If you feel discouraged
That there's a lack of color here,
Please don't worry lover
It's really bursting at the seams
The spectrum's a to z.
This is fact not fiction
For the first time in years,
And all the girls in every girlie magazine
Can't make me feel any less alone,
I'm reaching for the phone…
To call at 7:03 and on your machine,
I slur a plea for you to come home
But I know it's too late
I should have given you a reason to stay,
Given you a reason to stay,
Given you a reason to stay,
Given you a reason to stay.
This is fact not fiction
For the first time in years.
