Battles Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Drained (4:06)
What we had, we threw away
We were close to heaven, but we ended up in hell
What we had, we threw away

Just cause the hurt doesn't show
There's no way to recover, you broke my heart in two
I had a dream of growing old
I saw us driving to the end of the road

We had this world of make believe
I thought I saw the fire in your eyes

You ripped the heart out
You ripped the heart out
You ripped the heart out of my will to survive
You ripped the heart out
You ripped the heart out
You killed the part of me that kept us alive

I'm drained and out of phase
I was shooting straight but you stole my aim
Could have walked for miles
We were supposed to be the end of the line
2. The End (3:58)
I got a new kind of fear
Something you don't want to view
There's this path that I can see
It leads straight to misery

We can't undo what we have done
Just face what's up ahead
We fight and we stumble
The fuse is lit, you better run now

I can't tell you what to do
This crossroad is your own
But I know what we'll become
We'll be outlaws on the run

Do you think about the end?
The words you say with your last breath
And the emptiness in space
Do you think about the end?
That slow last breath of air
The words you say with your last breath
And the emptiness in space

What if I say to you
Let’s leave this earth for a while
A perspective from the hollow
And the wheel we can’t control

And the emptiness in space
And the emptiness in space

When we were young
Was this the dream we had?
We are celebrating nothing
We need to find our way back
3. Like Sand (3:43)
I believe that th whole wide world is against me
I believe that th whole wide world is afarid of me

How did I end up here
Half a life and still full of fears
If I am honest I think you'll see
I'm scared to shit what's coming for me

You say make the most of your time
(But) How does it work when it's on your side
What can't kill you makes you stronger
So I heard but I'm going under

I will try...

I want the whole world in my hands
But it keep slipping through like sand

I try hard to be like you
You're my queen but I break in two
I think I can overcome
All the mistakes that I've done

You say make the most of your time
(But) How does it work when it's on your side
What can't kill you makes you stronger
So you say, but I'm going under
4. The Truth (3:04)
We are, we are, we are
We are, we are, we are

The time has come to bring you down
Take the power back and show you how
I hear the sound of a plane passing by
Someone have the same thoughts as I
But as I get to the end of mine
You deny and think everything is fine

We are, we are, we are
We are the truth that hurts the most, 'cause
We are, we are, we are
It hurts when your denial's exposed
It hurts when your denial's exposed

Why can't we see eye to eye?
Think of all the things we leave behind
I hear the sound of a car driving by
You can go on for miles
But you will run out, this is not your day
Are you just gonna turn around and walk away?
5. In My Room (3:25)
Here in my room
I'm behind the wall
I'm out of reach
I don't sympathize

Adjusting the level of delusion
Feel like you're one of the same
Encoding the white noise
Lose my way and fall again

Creating dreams from a broken past
It tears a hole and sucks you dry
If you know secrets, tell me now
Creating dreams, let the worlds collide
Escape the void and feel alive
Don't have the answers but I'll survive

Here in my room
I'm behind the wall
Away from the flock
Closure will come

Adjusting the high of expectation
Feel like you're out of the brave
Dig deeper
Find a new path and climb again
6. Before I Fall (3:27)
How far to go, I'll never know
I pushed too hard, so you ran away
I know you bleed for me
And you know I die for you

As yearning with open eyes from darkness to light

The cold is real that I know
The scars I feel but I won't let go
I know that I can find the meaning of it all
Put my fears behind before I fall

My will to be something more
Say the right words and be what I've promised
I know you bleed for me
I know I will die for you
7. Through My Eyes (3:50)
You did me wrong and I applauded you
I became the blade and I pierced through
Now hiding from the world outside
Trying to create magic for the pacified

You never felt the answers were aimed at you, my friend
Did you find yourself lost in the world we swore to protect?

If you could see it, if you could see it through my eyes
Why are we so different
Want you to feel it, want you to know what it was like
Then maybe you understand

You always did perfer to keep me on distance
So no wonder it served as your riddance

You never felt the answers were aimed at you, my friend
Did you find yourself lost in the world we swore to protect?

If you could see it, if you could see it through my eyes
Why are we so different
Want you to feel it, want you to know what it was like
Then maybe you understand

(If you could see it through my eyes
if you could see it through my eyes)
8. Battles (2:58)
Pain... you're not my friend and despise you
Friend... you're in pain and I adore you

What are you waiting for?
I'm here, let's consume it all (Consume it all)
Before they take it all away

I hear them from the other side
As I sit and let the day go by
Trying to see see if the world is still alive
Let the day go by

Insane... to be caged when you're to blame
Blame... break free from insanity to praise you

What are you waiting for?
I'm here, let's consume it all (Consume it all)
Before they take it all away

I hear them from the other side
As I sit and let the day go by
Trying to see see if the world is still alive
Let the day go by
9. Here Until Forever (4:19)
I can't wait to hear your voice again
I am far from lonely but without you I'm a mess
I close my eyes and drift away
I'm wondering what you are doing now

When I look at you, I see me
We will always be part of history
When l look at you, I see me
(Here until) Forever I will always be

Mind and soul we are the same
A hand on your heart you know I am there
You are my lighthouse in the dark
I can see you from a thousand miles

Forever I will always be...

When I look at you, I see me
We will always be part of history
When l look at you, I see me
(Here until) Forever I will always be

I hope you feel that nothing dies
I am alive in all you touch

Close my eyes and drift away
Wondering what you are doing now
(Wondering what you are doing right now)
10. Underneath My Skin (3:30)
Waiting for miracles appear
All the heights I did aspire seems forever gone
A torn and shredded grin to fit the blackened day
Shoveling the ashes from the times of selfish ways

I'm taking more than I can give
Is this the life I wanna live? The life I wanna live?
There's nothing underneath my skin
Is this the life I wanna live? The life I wanna live?

Falling like stars from the sky
Burned out before the trial and are forever gone
Kneel and pray to find the right way back inside
Been to hell and back but still feel I'm blind

I'm taking more than I can give
Is this the life I wanna live? The life I wanna live?
There's nothing underneath my skin
Is this the life I wanna live? The life I wanna live?
11. Wallflower (7:06)
I like to look at you from a distance
I like when you scream in my face
Afraid to say the right words in right order
So they make sense to a person with such grace

What if my dreams don't become reality?
Is my life just a big mistake?
Will I be happy for the times I had
Or would I reconsider and recalculate?

I wanna be heard but leave no trace
I wanna be seen but take no space
I wanna be, I wanna be, leave no trace
I wanna be, I wanna be, take no space

The older I get, the younger I feel
The younger I feel, the older I seem
The more I feel, my age seems real
I Like to pretend I'm as young as I feel
12. Save Me (4:12)
Here's a hammer, build a ladder
It's a long way up to heaven
If I dig, it might take as long
But maybe in hell, that's where I belong

Seven days and seven nights
Avoiding heat from the fires
And I have walked this path before

I'm afarid I'll lose it all

WIll somebody save me?
Somebody save me
I've been trying so hard but I can't see that far
So save me

Just let it rain, I'd rather stay away
From the laughs of the common and the company of crows
Memories they fade, but I'm far too awake
Welcome to my charade
