The Black Lyrics

1. Let It Sleep (4:00)
Heaven's gone and hell is here
There's nothing left for you my dear
So grab a glass and pour a drink
Learn to swim before you sink

Go!
I can't remember the last time I smiled
God it's been a while
So much hate I've held inside
Behind these eyes there's a devil inside
Behind these eyes there's a devil inside

Life's too short for you to die
Ignore the lows make sure you're high
And don't you ever look back

Let it sleep, let it sleep, let it sleep
I've almost given up
Oh God I know I'm fucked

Something is just not right
I need to leave this place
Out of mind, out of sight
My evil thoughts can't hide
And I am trapped in my own mind, own mind
There's not a thing you can do
You're fucked and I am too
There's not a thing you can do
You're fucked and I am too

Trapped in hell I'm all alone
With my sins staring through my soul
I guess there's no way out
Let it sleep, let it sleep
And beg he won't wake up
Let it sleep, let it sleep
Oh God I know I'm fucked

Pray for death
Nothing left for you to live for
Sick of your god damn lies
Hiding behind dead eyes
I never needed you
No god above, no hell below me
Screaming but no one's there
Praying that someone cares
No one believes in you
Still alive but barely breathing
Stabbing me in the back
I never asked for that
Drinking away your pain
Taking everything for granted
I hate you

Something is just not right
I need to leave this place
Out of mind, out of sight
My evil thoughts can't hide
And I am trapped in my own mind, own mind
There's not a thing you can do
You're fucked and I am too
There's not a thing you can do
You're fucked and I am too

I can't remember the last time
I can't remember the last time I smiled
I can't remember the last time
2. The Black (4:41)
Bury me, just leave me to sleep in the dirt
Finish me, I'm floating away
There's a demon staring straight through your eyes
Am I wasting my time?
Something's dying inside of me

You make me feel like I'm fucking drowning
(I need to cut you out, I need to cut you out)
You made my world come crashing down around me
(I need to cut you out)

Oh God I wish you'd just speak to me
Black is all that I see
Speak to me
You used to be all that I needed

I've been crucified and hung out to dry
Yet my heart still beats and I feel so alive
This time I'll fight for myself as you try to fuck me over
I bet you never cared, I knew you never cared

You make me feel like I'm fucking drowning
(I need to cut you out, I need to cut you out)
You made my world come crashing down around me
(I need to cut you out)

Speak to me
Black is all that I see
Speak to me
You used to be all that I needed

I need to cut you out, I need to cut you out
I need to cut you out, I need to cut you out
I wish you could save me, there's something lost inside
I'm scared it might kill me
All my life I've needed you with me
You've always let me down
But still I try
Don't leave me here
I need you around (don't turn your back on me, don't turn your back on me)
Lift my feet off the ground (I can't cut you out)
Your tongue like a knife
Your eyes cut like daggers
I don't feel a thing 'cause I'm so dead inside
Lift my feet off the ground
Don't leave me here
I need you around
3. I Won't Give In (3:49)
[x2:]
Every breath you take
I watch you slip away
You're slowly killing yourself

I won't give in

If my heart could sing, would you stay?
Would you stay and listen?
Would you stay and listen?

If my soul was torn, would you help?
Would you try and fix me?
Would you help un-break me?

Your smile, it eats me alive
And I can't turn away any longer

[x2:]
Every breath you take
I watch you slip away
You're slowly killing yourself
I won't give in

I'm the ghost of what's left of me
Begging you to hear me
Can you even feel me?

I can't let you go, save me please
Will you stay here with me?
Will you ever leave me?

Your smile it eats me alive
I can't turn away any longer

[x2:]
Every breath you take
I watch you slip away
You're slowly killing yourself
I won't give in

I gave you everything
I never thought we would end up like this
I gave you everything
I can't let you go, save me please

[x2:]
I gave you everything
I won't give in

Every breath you take
I watch you slip away
You're slowly killing yourself

I'll be your light in the darkness
Every breath you take
I watch you slip away
You're slowly killing yourself
I won't give in

I gave you everything
I never thought we would end up like this
4. Sometimes It Ends (4:45)
So here we fucking go
You're going down
You're on your own
This hate is endless
Tonight I think I'll cross the line
I'll cross the fucking line
This hate is relentless

Oh here we go down this hole
I've lost control
Save me
Oh here we go down this hole
I've lost control
Save me

Picking up, picking up another life
Waking up, waking up from all the lies
I feel so alone

Sometimes it ends
Sometimes you fall
Crossing out the man that I've become
I'm standing tall
Stronger than I ever did before
Against them all

I know that you have locked me in your eyes
And I can't resist it
The target on your chest is all that I can see
Fight me now
It's not over
No, no, no, it's not over
Pick me up off the ground just once more
So on I go, on I go
But never alone

Sometimes it ends
Sometimes you fall
Crossing out the man that I've become
I'm standing tall
Stronger than I ever did before
Against them all

Now it's my turn to drag you through this hell
Through this hell
I won't forgive
I won't let go of what you've done
Woke up alone
So sick of this game
I've spent too many years in this house of pain
If you can't find the words, read between the lines
So take it or leave it to me
So take it or leave it to me from here this time

5. The Lost Souls (4:05)
We are the ones that no one gave a chance
We are the ones that almost lost it all
Ghost in the hallway who never catch a glance
We are the lost
We are the lost souls

Our hearts, our souls are shallow empty holes
We sing this anthem for us all
We're so fucked up
Oh God we're so alone
Just close your eyes and sing along

If my heart stops beating, will you still remember?
Will you still remember my name?
Did I get what I deserved?
We're trapped in doubt
In our own minds
Ignoring all we feel inside
Forsaken, gone, forgotten
Everything has come apart
Lead us back from out the dark

Our hearts, our souls, are shallow empty holes
We sing this anthem for us all
We're so fucked up
Oh God we're so alone
Just close your eyes and sing along

Let's go
We sing this anthem for us all
Let's go
We sing this anthem for us all
We are the lost souls
6. Just a Slave To Rock n' Roll (3:25)
A bottle of whiskey in my hand is like a fucking gun against my head
Just waiting to go off
So let's go
Come on
It's our curse on this road
This is what we all live for
A new will to begin
Armed with a license to sin
We're back at it again
Stay out of my fucking way

Did I take the right path?
I don't know, but I'm lovin' everything
All the hearts that I have broken
All the lies I've left unspoken
It's time to move on and just walk away
But in the end we'll be okay
And I'll be the one to blame
It's time to move on and just walk away

Fuck yeah
You might be the first for the evening
But you sure ain't the last
Another temporary lover whose lovin' never lasts
It's rock and roll and we love it that way

Did I take the right path?
I don't know, but I'm lovin' everything
All the hearts that I have broken
All the lies I've left unspoken
It's time to move on and just walk away
But in the end we'll be okay
And I'll be the one to blame
It's time to move on and just walk away

I'm out of my fucking mind
I don't care cause I'm lovin' everything
Fuck
I'm telling you I'm crazy
Baby this is how I play
And you can't fucking stop me
I'm in it all the way
7. Send Me Home (4:18)
A stranger to most, but everyone knows his name
The city he wakes up in is never the same
It gets hard to count the days with only stars to lead the way
And in his heart of gold he knows this has to change

So send me home
I have lost my way
And I don't even know if we'll make it through today
Take another step, take another breath
I fill my lungs with the deepest of regrets
And I don't know if I'll make it home again

It gets a little harder day by day
The loneliness is swallowing me
I listen to the silence to hear what it might say
Who will pick me up again?
I need you here, I need a friend
We'll get lost on time that's stolen
So take my hand

And send me home
I have lost my way
And I don't even know if we'll make it through today
Take another step, take another breath
I fill my lungs with the deepest of regrets
And I don't know if I'll make it home again

Take all that I've got
All I need is one more moment
I just have to end this torment
Take all that I've got
We'll get lost on time that's stolen
Take my hand and lead me home again
Just take my hand

So send me home
I have lost my way
And I don't even know if we'll make it through today
Take another step, take another breath
I fill my lungs with the deepest of regrets
And I don't know if I'll make it home again
8. We'll Be OK (3:57)
Your voice is calling my name...
Again and again!

The web you wove around me was only the beginning
And every star I counted, as cold as your embrace
I've listened - I've questioned
Every word you choked on
The secret, the answer
I'm just a slave to all your sins
If I've been so stupid
So blind, so void, so empty
I hope you forgive me
I'm just an echo in your head
You made my life a fucking misery
Remember when you tied me down
Yeah, I sank in the uncertainty
I prayed for you to blindfold me
Fuck
I'm just so scared of what I'll see

[Chorus:]
Your voice is calling my name
My soul is caught up in flames
I feel I'm losing control
I'm here, I'm yours to atone
Again and again!

Fuck, oh no, god
Mesmerized by your motion
But my memories of you
Forever standing still

[Chorus]

I'll spill the ink on the empty page
I feel this fever taking over me
Help me, cause I can't live this way
Tell me why the memories won't fade away

But we'll be okay
We'll be just fine
I never took the time to say sorry
But all I ever needed was you
9. Here I Am (4:19)
I'm unashamed of my mistakes
I walked the path I had to take
It's made me who I am today
This reign of hate is done
We're gonna take this over now
And we've only just begun

Here I am
This is all of me
I'm not hiding
I'm standing tall for all to see
Here I am
There is nothing bigger
Nothing brighter than a future I see

So if you find it hard to breathe
You can put your faith in me
I'll be the light that leads your way
We are the voice of a generation
So take your chance and don't back down

Here I am
This is all of me
I'm not hiding
I'm standing tall for all to see
Here I am
There is nothing bigger
Nothing brighter than a future I see

Take this chance
Take a stand
Take this chance
Don't back down

Here I am
This is all of me
I'm not hiding
I'm standing tall for all to see
Here I am
There is nothing bigger
Nothing brighter than a future I see

So take this chance
Don't back down
Take a stand
And never let them bring you down
So take this chance
Don't back down
And never let them bring you down
10. Gone (3:17)
Every day I awake
I await my fate as the sky turns blue to grey
Now I understand it might be my last day
Might be my last day
Now I understand it might be my last day
Might be my last day

So what am I supposed to do now I've reached the end?
And if I gained another chance, would you still be there?

Please don't be lonely when I'm gone
I've been so sad for far too long
And as I gently slip away, this song will always stay
[x2]

For now, this is my goodbye

So what am I supposed to do now I've reached the end?
And if I gained another chance, would you still be there?

Please don't be lonely when I'm gone
I've been so sad for far too long
And as I gently slip away, this song will always stay
[x2]
11. Undivided (3:35)
I told you once and I won't say it again
You never meant a thing to me, a means to an end
If we can't change the past then why should we care?
I don't give a fuck if you're here or you're there!
Your God damn beliefs have made you go blind
Your ego, your fame they have poisoned your mind

So take take take all your memories
'Cuz I don't want 'em and I don't need 'em
So stay stay stay the hell away from me
The truth is I'm moving on

So take take take all your memories
'Cuz I don't want 'em and I don't need 'em
Stay stay stay the hell away from me

So get the fuck out, fuck out
You'll take this to your fucking grave
Fuck off, fuck off
I told you that we'd make it our own way

You self righteous, sacrilegious, fucking cunt
Your unintelligent, irrelevant ramblings are falling upon deaf ears
How can you be the voice of a generation
When the only voice you listen to is in your own fucking head?

So take take take all your memories
'Cuz I don't want 'em and I don't need 'em
So stay stay stay the hell away from me
The truth is I'm moving on

So take take take all your memories
'Cuz I don't want 'em and I don't need 'em
Stay stay stay the hell away from me
I'm moving on

Hell yeah, so we came here to stay
And none of you can fucking take this away
Fuck yeah, here's what I have to say;
Goodbye and so long it's the start of a new day

As the seconds turn into days
We stand together
We will never be the same
We stand together

So take take take all your memories
'Cuz I don't want 'em and I don't need 'em

So stay stay stay the hell away from me
The truth is I'm moving on

As the seconds turn into days
We stand together
We will never be the same
We stand together

Hell yeah, so we came here to stay
And none of you can fucking take this away
Fuck yeah, here's what I have to say;
Goodbye and so long it's the start of a new day
12. Circled By the Wolves (3:29)
No, I never said it was easy
We're starting over again
Oh, you fucking gotta believe me
We nearly fell off the edge

Circled by the wolves, they want me dead
Look me in the eye, I'm no longer afraid

I've come so far, I won't turn away
Let go of the past and live for today

I don't run fucker, I kill motherfucker
And I'm here motherfucker
You can try to beat me
Step inside fucker
You're next motherfucker
And you'll see motherfucker
You can't fuck with me
You're long dead to me

Fuck yeah!
Our fingers raised in the air
So can you hear me now?
Say my name
No longer wasting my time
Your words don't bother me
I don't care

I've come so far, I won't turn away
Let go of the past and live for today

Cheers!
Oh God..
I can't believe you thought we couldn't see
You wanted closure - now it's here for you
F U C K Y O U

We're all just running in circles
Forever chasing a dream
As if everything that we long for
Is not as far as it seems
Who the hell are you any way?
Who the fuck are you to say we're done for?
