LIVIN’ IN SIN
Once again my friend
Storm clouds are rolling
Broken inside myself
Can’t seem to break this chain
Can’t break it!

And I’ve seen it all
And I’ve wanted all
Lived in sin
Where do I begin?

Cut between the line
My life for worthless lies
Sheading my skin to begin
A life that I don’t know how to live
I can’t take it!

And I’ve seen it all
And I’ve wanted all
Lived in sin
Where do I begin?

I don’t know now
Where to go now
I don’t know if I’ll ever again… no
It’s all broken
Not a word spoken
And I don’t know how to go, how to.. god help me now!

And I’ve seen it all
And I’ve wanted all
Lived in sin
Livin’ in sin
Where do I begin?

SPEAK
Free, you better love me.
In time, you’ll run away, from all your yesterdays!

Speak the truth, or make your peace some other way ahh yea.
I never knew, but I believe that your trust in me,
Ohh, will speak to me.

In way beyond your controlling mind.
And no more believing all your precious lies!

Speak the truth, or make your peace some other way ahh yea.
I never knew, but I believe that your trust in me.
Oh, will speak to me.
SPEAK!

THE ENEMY
Hey! Oh, Mr. backstabbing son of a bitch
You’re living in a world that will soon be dying
And I know, everybody knows you try to be like me
But even at your best, as a man you couldn’t even be a half of me

I am realizing, that everybody’s lost their simple ways
And now that is here, I see it all so clearly
I’ve come face to face with the enemy, oh the enemy!

You! You’re another shittalking punk to me
You’re living inspiration for what I never wanna be
And I see, you’ve been blinded by what you believe
And now back up and sit and I’ll show the act you need to be

I am realizing, that everybody’s lost their simple ways
And now that is here, I see it all so clearly
I’ve come face to face with the enemy, oh the enemy!
Come to me, come to me, the enemy, come to me, come to me

So predicting, you’re the reason why
I lie
Safehold decision took too much time
To fly
Oh, check me, check me…

I am realizing, that everybody’s lost their simple ways
And now that is here, I see it all so clearly
I’ve come face to face with the enemy, oh the enemy!
Come to me

SHINE DOWN
So tired sleeping through the day
Bloodshot eyes and sweat from my body
And I picked my head up yesterday
Found the reason of hope left inside of me

But I still believe in immortal love
And I know there’s someone above

Shine down, don’t take it away from me, no
And I know you know how, yeah
Shine down, just give me a chance to feel it
It’s taken forever to get me off the ground

Haunted silence overwhelming me
Deny takes it’s toll on my sanity
And I know I’ve been away too long
All these years I’ve been hiding
I’m feeling I’m coming strong

But I still believe in immortal love
And I know there’s someone that’s up above
Show me a path to find my way
And give me a reason pray

Shine down, don’t take it away from me, no
And I know you know how, yeah
Shine down, just give me a chance to feel it
It’s taken forever to get me off the ground

HOLLOW
One more step and I could fall away
If it happen wouldn’t matter
And I can’t tell if I should go or stay
Same old picture feel so hollow
How can anybody know what’s best for me?
Another paintjob turned in shape
And my decisions brought me to my knees
I needed someone to blame

I feel so hollow
Time to do what’s best for me I believe I can change

Once upon a time in broken dreams
Reflection’s that I can’t face
So hold your breath and make a wish for me
Take me to a better place
Time always seems to be passing by
It never waits for me
If I could do it all one more time
I wouldn’t change a thing

I feel so hollow (feel so hollow)

Time to do what’s best for me I believe I can change

NO REST FOR THE WICKED
Walk to find line slip the edge, I’m not me
Rise above a suicide, taking it out of me
Got a feeling, it’s going far away, yeah
Looking at wounds from yesterday

Gonna fly, taken my time, strip down to nothing
Gonna try, but there’s no rest for the wicked

Been through the skin of a dragon a thousand times
In every day I live for you, still I’m not alive
Got a feeling, I’m gonna fall away
Gimme a sign what reason that I should stay

Gonna fly, taken my time, strip down to nothing
Gonna try, but there’s no rest for the wicked

Are you ready to go just to hide in?
Do you think you can make me a better man?
Crack me open, expose me to your ways
Ignorance and arrogance on my way
No rest for the wicked baby!

Gonna fly, take my time, strip down to nothing Gonna try, but there’s no rest for the wicked

BLEEEDING ME
Way, way down inside there’s a hollow soul
An emptiness shatters tomorrow
And I find it hard to breathe for me in your company
Seems I’ve been taken for granted

And you’re breaking and bleeding me down to nothing
It’s tearing me down
You’re breaking me and bleeding me down to nothing
Yeah!

Maybe, this time baby it’s meant to be
No more suffocating you or me, oh yeah
And I payed the price but you sentencing me to life
And I feel I bought in my time

And you’re breaking and bleeding me down to nothing
It’s tearing me down
You’re breaking me and bleeding me down to nothing
Again

You’re breaking me
And bleeding me
Again
You’re bleeding me, you’re bleeding me

And you’re breaking and bleeding me down to nothing
You’re tearing me down
You’re breaking me and bleeding me down to nothing
You’re tearing me, tearing me down again
Tearing me down again
You’re breaking me and bleeding me
Bleeding me again

VOODOO TOO
(I’m not the one who’s so far away)

Open your eyes, a chill passes you by
A premenation coming strong
Rich with desire, superstition in disguise
Toss me in where I belong

Have you ever wondered why in a dream you can touch a fallen sky?
Fly to the heavens that watch over you, telling me it’s a voodoo
Voodoo too

In, still the body, so on with every breath
Dance to a vision so seductive
Rain down upon me, it cleanses me with every drip
A send you promised for the nurrishment that I’ve been gifted

Have you ever wondered why in a dream you can touch a fallen sky?
Fly to the heavens that watch you breathe, telling me it’s a voodoo
Voodoo too

Voodoo too, it’s all voodoo too

Have you ever wondered why in a dream you can touch a fallen sky?
Fly to the heavens that watch over you, telling me it’s a voodoo
Voodoo too

It’s just voodoo too

TEMPTATION
It crawls down deep inside without a pulse or a will to die
Not known To Sympathize
And now it takes what it takes and let’s the feelings suffocate
It’s nothing new it’ll get its way
Another thing that I see is how it gets inside of me and tears away my life

It’s time to love!
It’s Time to hate!
It’s Coming Face to face trying to desecrate.
No time at all to break away
Temptation still got a hold on me.

It’s awake even when you sleep
It breathes without a heartbeat, making me incomplete
And now I know what I know
Expect the demon down below to surface through my mortal soul.
And now it looks to be it’s smiling as it’s killing me day to day, eye to eye

It’s time to love!
It’s Time to hate!
It’s Coming Face to face trying to desecrate.
No time at all to break away
Temptation still got a hold on me.

MAMA
Oh mama what have I gone and done?
With all these years that I’ve been gone
My life changed me way too fast
I don’t know if I could last

Help me find my way, and mama save me
Help me find today, mama please come and save me, oh

Oh mama if you could’ve only seen
Everything I’ve done and where I’ve been
If only one thing I would ask
Why did you let me grow up so goddamn fast?

Help me find my way, and mama save me
Help me find today, mama please come and save me, oh

There’s nothing more that you can do
It’s gone beyond what you can’t help me through
An emptiness has covered me
Oh mama come and save me

Help me find my way, and mama save me
Help me find today, mama please come and save me, oh

There’s nothing more that you can do
It’s gone beyond what you can’t help me through
An emptiness has covered me
Oh mama come and save me
Oh mama come and save
Oh save me… no!
Oh please mama save…

ONE RAINY DAY
Oh man, I’m tired and lonely
Again, why must it be?
A man drowning slowly
He can’t keep above, gone way too deep.
Open skies are falling, tears are coming down
Like a drop of rain falls to the ocean and comes back around, one rainy day.
Oh so many times I should’ve crawled when I went running by
And since then I’ve been left feeling traumatized
Raped and drain of an innocence, a gift we’ve lost over time
And still I gaze through this one rainy day, alone, with no one by my side.
Open skies are falling, tears are coming down.
Like a drop of rain falls to the ocean and comes back around.
I swear I’ve given you all I can
Never will you ever make me feel this way again, on this one rainy day…
