The Connection Lyrics

Submitted by level 록스타
1. Engage (0:51)
Dead president, fuck the president
Nations strive for power
While I work to save my residence
He owns you even though he never told you
Mark of the beast on your hand
Now he owns you
Thrown down to the bottom level
Ruled by the fist
And the fist is a devil
I metamorphosis, make myself level
We are the future
We are right now
Right now, I'm taking a stab at the sic, sic, sic
I know what evil is and evil could suck my dick
Like Sam Hain and the God ain't no joke
Better watch your neck
'Cause you might get choked
We are the future
We are right now
Fuck the futrue
You sink we swim
We rise you fall
We meet our fate together
I was here from the start
And I'll be here in the end
In the end
I'm dodging arrows from the dark side every day
And I'm a main target 'cause of what I say
If I nearly always go against the grain
And crushing everything before it takes your brain
Thrown down to the bottom level
Ruled by the fist
And the fist is a devil
I metamorphosis, make myself level
Yeah Come on
Yeah Come on
We are the future
We are right now
Fuck the futrue
You sink we swim
We rise you fall
We meet our fate together
I was here from the start
And I'll be here in the end
In the end
Legacy
Legacy
Legacy
Legacy
I was here from the start
And I'll be here in the end
In the end
Legacy
Legacy
Legacy
Legacy.
2. Still Swingin' (3:24)
Number one, steppin' up
Spit the fire, I'll back it up
Count me in, I'll turn it out
I'm killing it, you're burning out
Never change, never break
I'm the real, you're the fake
Set it off, go underground
You feeling it, this future sound

Nonstop, devastating everything
On top, never coming down
I've got my hands in everything
Nonstop, I'm never coming down

We're just living for today
Keep our light on in the haze
Yeah, forever we will stay
We are the ones still swingin'
We are a beacon in the dark
A lighthouse risen from the heart
We've been here from the start
We are the ones still swingin'
Yeah

I'm dangerous, passionate
Watch your back, they're stabbin' it
Hold on and hold tight
I slash your faces every night
We don't belong, never will
Never cared, we always kill
Set me off and I will attack
Cause P Roach is the new black

Nonstop, devastating everything
On top, never coming down
I've got my hands in everything
Nonstop, I'm never coming down

We're just living for today
Keep our light on in the haze
Yeah, forever we will stay
We are the ones still swingin'
We are a beacon in the dark
A lighthouse risen from the heart
We've been here from the start
We are the ones still swingin'
We are the ones still swingin', swingin'
We-we are the ones still swingin'

Going nonstop, I'm devastating everything
On top, I'm never coming down
I've got my hands in everything
Nonstop, I'm never coming down

We're just living for today
Keep our light on in the haze
Yeah, forever we will stay
We are the ones still swingin'
We are a beacon in the dark
A lighthouse risen from the heart
We've been here from the start
We are the ones still swingin'
We are the ones still swingin'
We are the ones still swingin'
3. Where Did the Angels Go (3:10)
Where Did The Angels Go?


Every day I wake up and I fall from grace
Every move I make has got me stuck in the darkest place
I pray for mercy but I love the fear
I should have listened while the angels were living here

I'm sick to my soul
I'm giving control
It feels I'm hanging at the end of my rope
I wanna believe that there is still hope
Now I'm hanging in the balance alone
Heaven better tell me where the hell did the angels go

Every day I ask myself if this is real
I only hurt myself to show you that I can feel
Are you the cancer that I can't survive ?
I should've listened when the angels were still alive

I'm sick to my soul
I gave you control
It feels I'm hanging at the end of my rope
I wanna believe if there is still hope
Now I'm hanging in the balance alone


I don't wanna be the last to know
Maybe I should breathe and let it go
Heaven better tell me where the hell did the angels go

My demons are stronger than ever
This lifetime is harder than ever
But I've become somebody better
Somebody better

I'm sick to my soul
I gave you control
It feels I'm hanging at the end of my rope
I wanna believe if there is still hope
Now I'm hanging in the balance alone
I don't wanna be the last to know
Maybe I should breathe and let it go
Everybody tell me where the hell did the angels go

Where did the angels go ?
Where did the angels go ?
4. Silence Is the Enemy (2:53)
I know you wanted me to keep my mouth shut
Because you hate it when I speak my mind
I suffer through but it feels so messed up
Like my opinion is a waste of time
We never wanted it to be this way
They never listen to a word we say

So scream your heart out
You are the chosen
You got to show them
Silence is the enemy
Scream it out loud
We are the broken
We gotta show them
Silence is the enemy

You take your needles and sew my mouth shut
But you will never hear the last of me
This is the reason that we're all so fucked up
You are the reason that we don't believe
We never wanted it to be this way
They never listen to a word we say

So scream your heart out
You are the chosen
You gotta show them
Silence is the enemy
Scream it out loud
We are the broken
We gotta show them
Silence is the enemy

Scream it out loud
Silence is the enemy
Scream it out loud
Silence is the enemy

You gotta show them
Silence is the enemy

Scream your heart out
You are the chosen
You gotta show them
Silence is the enemy
Scream it out loud
We are the broken
We gotta show them
Silence is the enemy

Scream it out loud
Silence is the enemy
Scream it out loud
Silence is the enemy
Scream it out loud
Silence is the enemy
5. Before I Die (4:25)
I’m out here on my own
I’m giving it a go alone
I’m begging on my knees
Is there a God to save me
I’ve been a retched soul
From my heart down to my toes
I was lost in my disease
And you were right there screaming

Don’t change when it’s too late

Maybe I said the right things wrong
But one last shot was too far gone
But if I can I swear that I
Will live for you before I die
Maybe I pushed you way too far
To pull you back from where you are
But if I can I swear that I
Will live for you before I die

From the valley of the dead
I’m hearing every word you said
I’m trying to apologize
But I can’t feel my feelings
Are you giving us some room to grow
Or digging us a deeper hole
You’re killing any shred of hope
For us to believe in

Don’t change when it’s too late

Maybe I said the right things wrong
But one last shot was too far gone
But if I can I swear that I
Will live for you before I die
Maybe I pushed you way too far
To pull you back from where you are
But if I can I swear that I
Will live for you before I die

I’m out here on my own
I’m sick of being here alone
I know where I belong
But I can’t find my way home

Find my way home
Find my way home
Find my way home
Find my way

Maybe I said the right things wrong
But one last shot was too far gone
But if I can I swear that I
Will live for you before I die
Maybe I pushed you way too far
To pull you back from where you are
But if I can I swear that I
Will live for you before I die

Will live for you before I die
I will live for you before I die
6. Wish You Never Met Me (4:05)
This is the moment that I feared the most
Helplessly watching as we turn to ghosts
Is it over
Tell me if it’s over
This is the hardest thing I’ve ever done
Hopelessly waiting as you turn and run
Is it over
Is it really over

I promised you that I would change
Then I broke it in a million ways
I alone take the blame
While you take everything
Why can’t we start this over
What have we done to us
You say that you need closure
Are you just giving up on us

I refuse to fade away
As you try to forget me
Take my heart and walk away
Like you wish you never met me

Now that I know that you’re not on my side
What good is love if it’s always denied
Is it over
Is it really over

I swore to God that I could change
But I let you down a million ways
I alone take the blame
While you take everything
Why can’t we start this over
What have we done to us
You say that you need closure
Are you just giving up on us

I refuse to fade away
As you try to forget me
Take my heart and walk away
Like you wish you never met me

Like you wish you never met me
Like you wish you never met me
Like you wish you never met me
Do you wish you never met me

Why can’t we start this over
What have we done to us
You say that you need closure
Are you just giving up

Why can’t we start this over
What have we done to us
You say that you need closure
Are you just giving up us

I refuse to fade away
As you try to forget me
Take my heart and walk away
Like you wish you never met me

I refuse to fade away
As you try to forget me
Take my heart and walk away
Like you wish you never met me

Like you wish you never met me
Like you wish you never met me
Like you wish you never met me
Do you wish you never met me
7. Give Me Back My Life (3:58)
All the walls coming down around me

I know that I’m fucked up and infected
I’ve been hiding in the fear rejected
Thank God that you finally found me
Cause you got to get me out of here
I’ve been sick and disconnected
I’ve been loving like I’ve been neglected
All the walls coming down around me
And you got to get me out of here

I can’t take anymore

I don’t wanna to breathe I don’t want to die
I can’t feel I’m paralyzed
I’m not taking this tonight
Give me back my life
I can’t breathe I can’t fight
I don’t wanna feel like I’m alive
I’m not taking this tonight
Give me back my life

I know I’m a walking contradiction
I’m the truth that you wish was fiction
And this heart isn’t known to hate me
I just want to disappear
I’ve been on a self-inflicted mission
To destroy everything I’m given
Thank God that you finally found me
Cause you got to get me out of here

I can’t take anymore

I don’t wanna to breathe I don’t want to die
I can’t feel I’m paralyzed
I’m not taking this tonight
Give me back my life
I can’t breathe I can’t fight
I don’t wanna feel like I’m alive
I’m not taking this tonight
Give me back my life

You took my pride
You took control
There’s nothing sacred anymore
Give back what’s mine
Give back my soul

I don’t wanna breathe
But I don’t wanna die

I don’t wanna to breathe I don’t want to die
I can’t feel I’m paralyzed
I’m not taking this tonight
Give me back my life
I can’t breathe I can’t fight
I don’t wanna feel like I’m alive
I’m not taking this tonight
Give me back my life

I don’t wanna to breathe I don’t want to die
I can’t feel I’m paralyzed
I’m not taking this tonight
Give me back my life
I can’t breathe I can’t fight
I don’t wanna feel like I’m alive
I’m not taking this tonight
Give me back my life
8. Breathe You In (3:07)
Why you all gotta learn the hard way?
Why you all gotta burn those bridges down?
Now that I feel so numb
Can I just be me for fuck sake?

Maybe I don’t have a purpose
Maybe I cut way too deep
Or maybe I scratch the surface
To find out that I’m not worthless

And I’ve never been so alive

I feel the fire burning underneath my skin, nothing
I breathe in, I breathe you in
I feel the freedom from this hopelessness within, nothing
I breathe in, I breathe you in

I should’ve stopped when I saw you breakin’
I should’ve stopped but I had to see it through
Now that I’ve come undone
I know why I feel so shacken

Maybe I’m too weak to hold you
Maybe I’ll just stay in range
So sorry I suffocate you
It must feel like I hate you

But I have never been so alive

I feel the fire burning underneath my skin, nothing
I breathe in, I breathe you in
I feel the freedom from this hopelessness within, nothing
I breathe in, I breathe you in

I’ve been afraid to show you what I’m neither
Knew all of this time why was I so afraid of
You never did anything to make me feel this way
To make me feel this way..

I feel the fire burning underneath my skin, nothing
I breathe in, I breathe you in
I feel the freedom from this hopelessness within, nothing
I breathe in, I breathe you in

I’ll breathe you in, I’ll breathe you in
9. Leader of the Broken Hearts (4:12)
All the lies I told you now the truth
Here I am with nothing left to lose
Now that I'm crawling in my skin
Maybe it's time I just give in
I've become the leader of the broken hearts

And now I finally know what it feels like
To risk everything and still survive
When you're standing on the battlefield
And all the pain is real
That's when you realize
That you must've done something right
Cause you've never felt so alive

Holding out for more than I deserve
And hanging on to all your careless words
Maybe it's time I cut the cord
Maybe I stay and take some more
I've become the leader of the broken hearts

And now I finally know what it feels like
To risk everything and still survive
When you're standing on the battlefield
And all the pain is real
That's when you realize

And now I know what it feels like
To risk everything and still survive
When you're standing on the battlefield
And all the pain is real
That's when you realize
That you must've done something right
Cause you've never felt so alive

I'm the leader of the broken hearts
I'm the leader of the broken hearts
I'm the leader of the broken hearts
I'm the leader of the broken hearts
I'm the leader of the broken hearts
I'm the leader of the broken hearts

And now I finally know what it feels like
To risk everything and still survive
When you're standing on the battlefield
And all the pain is real
That's when you realize

And now you finally know what it feels like
To risk everything and still survive
When you're standing on the battlefield
And all the pain is real
That's when you realize
That you must've done something right
Cause you've never felt so alive
10. Not That Beautiful (3:18)
I pray for the best and I run from the past
I pick up the phone just to find I’m alone
It’s wearing me out and the weight of my sins
Killed the faith that I had so it’s time I begin
Back to the start just to see how it feels
I was the one that you thought you could heal
Now that it’s over it’s time to move on
'Cause I was the righteous and you were the wrong

Every time I try to run and hide
I feel you're haunting me

I’m addicted to the games that you play
You make me feel so pitiful
Like you’re so beautiful
Your heart is beating me to death everyday
But I am not that pitiful
You’re not that beautiful

I suffer inside just to feel I’m alive
I bury the truth 'cause I know it’s a lie
I never said all the things I should say
'Cause you were the master and I was a slave
If I could find me a drug to forget you
I’d overdose on the day that I met you
Kill all the drama it’s time to move on
'Cause I am the righteous and you were the wrong

Every time I try to run and hide
I feel you're haunting me

I’m addicted to the games that you play
You make me feel so pitiful
Like you’re so beautiful
Your heart is beating me to death everyday
But I am not that pitiful
You’re not that beautiful
I’m not that pitiful
You’re not so beautiful

Every time I look into your eyes
I see a demon in disguise
You fucking make me sick
You are the one that I despise
You take me, you break me
You feed me lies
And all that you gave me in return was my demise
So maybe I’m just crazy for believing this shit
But goddamn I can’t believe I’m fucking dealing with this
It’s like a nightmare and I can’t wake up
I just can’t wake up

I’m addicted to the games that you play
You make me feel so pitiful
Like you’re so beautiful
Your heart is beating me to death everyday
But I am not that pitiful
You’re not that beautiful
I’m not that pitiful
You’re not so beautiful

Beautiful
Beautiful
Beautiful
11. Walking Dead (3:18)
Everybody told me
Everybody told me that this would happen
I didn't wanna believe
I didn't wanna believe that you were right
I was so caught up
Caught up in a world that I cut you out of
And now I'm hating myself
I'm hating myself
I never should've shut you out

We are the walking dead
Swallow the lies we're fed
I'll cover your eyes
I'll cover your eyes
I'll cover the truth and you'll realize
We're hanging by a thread
We are the walking dead

It might take some time
But I really think we can start things over
Take a look out our lives
Take a look at how fucked up we've become
In the blood shot eyes
All I see is pain and devastation
And now I'm hating myself
I'm hating myself
I never should've shut you out

We are the walking dead
Swallow the lies we're fed
I'll cover your eyes
I'll cover your eyes
I'll cover the truth and you'll realize
We're hanging by a thread
We are the walking dead

Can anything bring us back to life
Will anything make us right
Can anything bring us back to life
Or will it make us right
Cause I'm finding that we're falling apart
More than it breaks my heart

We are the walking dead
Swallow the lies we're fed
I'll cover your eyes
I'll cover your eyes
I'll cover the truth and you'll realize
We're hanging by a thread
We are the walking dead
I'll cover your eyes
I'll cover your eyes
I'll cover the truth and you'll realize

We are the walking dead
Swallow the lies we're fed
I'll cover your eyes
I'll cover your eyes
I'll cover the truth and you'll realize
We're hanging by a thread
We are the walking dead

We are the walking dead
12. Won't Let Up (4:00)
If you feel like your world is coming down around ya
When you feel like this world is looking down upon ya
The only way is up but if you change you got to wanna
And if you don’t than you’ll definitely be a goner
And it’s okay if you breakdown or breakthrough
I’ll be here if you need me to remind you
You’re not the first and you’re not the last
It only gets worse if you’re living in the past

Open your eyes and you will see
Because I still believe

Sometimes you got to lose everything
To find out that you’ve always been running blind
You got to keep your head up
When the world won’t let up
Sometimes you got to leave everything
To find out what you don’t want to leave behind
You got to keep your head up
When the world won’t let up

So when you feel like everyone is out to get you
L-O-V-E- is something that will protect you
And when the dust settles and you have your breakthroughs
M-U-R-D-E-R all the pain
It will set you free, everybody like me
Just reach for the sky when you rise in the sea
You’re not the first and you’re not the last
It only gets worse if you’re living in the past

Open your eyes and you will see
Because I still believe

Sometimes you got to lose everything
To find out that you’ve always been running blind
You got to keep your head up
When the world won’t let up
Sometimes you got to leave everything
To find out what you don’t want to leave behind
You got to keep your head up
When the world won’t let up

Hey, even though it hurts like hell
You have to bleed
Hey, even when we fight for air
We keep on breathing
Hey, even if you lost yourself
You still have me
Hey, even if you hate yourself
You have no reason

I still believe in
I still believe in
I still believe in
I still believe in

Sometimes you got to lose everything
To find out that you’ve always been running blind
You got to keep your head up
When the world won’t let up
Sometimes you got to leave everything
To find out what you don’t want to leave behind
You got to keep your head up
When the world won’t let up

You got to keep your head up
Because the world won’t let up
Keep your head up
You got to keep your head up
Because the world won’t let up
13. As Far as I Remember (3:42)
This could be my last confession
This could be my last defense
I wish that we could learn our lesson
I wish that we could make amends and turn the page

As far as I remember
It was a thing to forgive and forget
You said that you would let go
But I guess you didn’t mean what you said
Now it’s time to surrender
Because I don’t want to live with regret
And nothing lasts forever
As far as I remember

This could be a new beginning
Or this could be a brutal end
I wish that we could stop pretending
I wish that we could make amends and turn the page

As far as I remember
It was a thing to forgive and forget
You said that you would let go
But I guess you didn’t mean what you said
Now it’s time to surrender
Because I don’t want to live with regret
And nothing lasts forever
As far as I remember

I rather die on my feet
Than live my life on my knees
I’d rather die on my feet
Than live my life on my knees
I’d rather die on my feet
Than live my life on my knees

As far as I remember
It was a thing to forgive and forget
You said that you would let go
But I guess you didn’t mean what you said
Now it’s time to surrender
Because I don’t want to live with regret
And nothing lasts forever
As far as I remember

I rather die on my feet
Than live my life on my knees
I’d rather die on my feet
Than live my life on my knees
I’d rather die on my feet
Than live my life on my knees
(As far as I remember)

I rather die on my feet
Than live my life on my knees
I’d rather die on my feet
Than live my life on my knees
(As far as I remember)
I’d rather die on my feet
Than live my life on my knees
