Youngbloods Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level chelsea485
1. I Hate Hartley
Seems life forever,
Like forever
Since I tore myself apart
And left my friends in the wake
Of countless tears and fading life.
When I couldn't seem to grasp the life I lead
And the lives I touch
Its one year on now
One year on, one year on
Still I struggle with the same demons
I shed as I laid there lost in my head
Lost in my head

(Lost in this goddamn hospital bed)
I'm not the same man
And I don't dare try
(Try to uncover all the darkness I hide)
Its like my demons are my lovers
But I've got friends by my side
I've got hope in my eyes
And dreams to aspire too
And the whole wide world to watch below
(And death won't be my lover
I've got so much left to give
And take my life with subtle steps
Instead of not wanting all that is left)

Instead of trying to take my own life
Its one year on
And I'm stronger, I want to live much longer
Not grow old and bitter
And not jaded
And not hate what life gave me
Let the fear wash away
Let the demons blunt their claws
On a life that's full of mistakes
But always searching for much more
I won't die defeated
I won't die defeated
I won't die defeated
I won't die

Cause I've got friends by my side
I've got hope in my eyes
And dreams to aspire too
And the whole wide world to watch below
(and death won't be my lover
I've got so much left to give
And take my life with subtle steps
Instead of not wanting all that is left
No death won't be my lover
I've got so much left to give
And take my life with subtle steps
Instead of not wanting all that is left)
2. Anchors
I have so many anchors
So many, so many
So many anchors
Far too many to be sailing on these seas
They're pulling me under
And I just want to be freed
But I'm just drowning and clasping

To the tinder and twine
Not the firm planks and rope
That I know to be mine
That I know to be mine
I have so many anchors
Bound to my feet
It feels like I'll forever be bound
To the bottom of these seas

Will you hear nothing I say
As the tide just sweeps and sways
As the anchors that bind me
Just rust and decay
As I tear my flesh from bone
As I scream out to the sky
When will I find my way home?

There are sirens watching me
And they whisper and smile to me
And I'm screaming out to them
Please take these anchors from my feet
OH

I see the moon up above
I've failed my hope
I've thrown out my love
I still want to live
I still want to hope
I still want to give
I still want to grow
I was dead and gone
I was cold and alone
I was weighed down and buried
When will I find my way home?

Will you hear nothing I say
As the tide just sweeps and sways
As the anchors that bind me
Just rust and decay
As I tear my flesh from bone
As I scream out to the sky
When will I find my way home?

Let's get it
When will I find my way home?
[x2]

Will you hear nothing I say
As the tide just sweeps and sways
As the anchors that bind me
Just rust and decay
As I tear my flesh from bone
As I scream out to the sky
When will I find my way home?

As I tear my flesh from bone
As I scream out toward the sky
When will I find my way home?
3. H.M.A.S Lookback
I've been staring for weeks
At the cold rusted sheets
And the broken down pillars
Of the years that passed by
At the cold depths of rivers
And the moons that have fallen
And risen as halves
I've been star gazing and

Whispering to myself in the night
And by the river at dawn
I have discovered the light
I've been watching the tides
And I've been feeling their flow
And it's a humbling experience
To watch as they grow

Down
Where the beauty of our dreams
Touches the beauty of the sky
And the stars in our oceans
Become the stars in our eyes
Where we reach out to forever
For just one last grasp at hope
Where the tides ebb and flow
Is all our minds really know

They leave in short breaths
Returning to give
And to hold and to steal
And it's calming and it heals
And it's softening it seems
To leave my past behind
Join the tide
And head out toward the sea

Down
Where the beauty of our dreams
Touches the beauty of the sky
And the stars in our oceans
Become the stars in our eyes
Where we reach out to forever
For just one last grasp at hope
Where the tides ebb and flow
Is all our minds really know

I'm lost in a moment
Where the tide embraces me
Where I fall into the river
And set sail toward the sea
I'm lost and I'm dreaming
I'm lost and I'm feeling
Like this has waited
Forever to finally take me
[x2]

Down
Where the beauty of our dreams
Touches the beauty of the sky
And the stars in our oceans
Become the stars in our eyes
Where we reach out to forever
For just one last grasp at hope
Where the tides ebb and flow
Is all our minds really know
4. Fire or Knife
Why are we even breathing
If the only reason to exist
Is to stare skyward and put my hands together
Then why am I even here
To serve a myth
And carry these burdens on my chest
As it caves in and free will gives way
To a guilt of lost and misrepresented verses

I can't see the logic in falling to my knees
Where is the logic
There is no logic

I was blinded and inducted
Into a world that has no meaning
No basis for belief
And now they wonder why I'm seething
I'll spit this in their faces
And burn their false pretences
On which they stand
The pulpit burying our youth
Beneath the tides of callous sands
No room to breathe, oh
No room to brea-ea-ea-ea-ea-eathe

In the chambers of your guilt
Under the cross and devil's gaze
While you sit and wait to die
There'll be no god
In the cold night sky

There's no god who can hear you
There's no god who understands
Who understands
Regrets too often haunt us
Again and again
Sometimes it seems so hopeless
But we cannot give in
When all our best decisions
Prove us wrong
And when we're only waiting
For goodbyes
We've already given in, given in
We've already given in given in
We've already given in,
We've already given in, given in
But we're never giving in

There is no god who can hear you
Just a sky full of stars
The same stars you will be wishing on
When death comes to call on us
Call on us
5. Youngbloods
Have you looked up lately
And seen the cold lonely skies?
And looked into the mirror
And seen your black lonely eyes?
Well I have and I want to know
Why I feel like death is round the corner
I still feel so young
And in my chest I've the beating of
A thousand youngbloods

Youngbloods run free forever
Forget the death that's ever nearer
Youngbloods young hearts alike
Let the fires burn inside your eyes
We won't give up these memories
We won't go near those cemeteries
And have you ever felt the breath of the midnight reaper?

His whisper's deathly cold, deathly cold and nearer
The sun never rises when you're in his presence
Your tears run black as coal
And your chest ceases its movements
And your young blood runs so cold
Have you felt the darkness calling?
And the whispers in the skies
Well so have I, so we need to run together

Youngbloods, youngbloods, youngbloods run free forever
Forget the death that's ever fucking nearer
Light up the sky and scream fuck the reaper
This life is for the keeping
Youngbloods just keep on screaming

Youngbloods run free forever
Forget the death that's ever nearer
Youngbloods young hearts alike
Let the fires burn inside your eyes
We won't give up these memories
We won't go near those cemeteries

Youngbloods, youngbloods, youngbloods just keep on screaming
This life is for the keeping
This song is for the dreamers
Youngbloods, youngbloods, youngbloods just keep on screaming
Just keep on screaming
Just keep on screaming...
Let's go

Youngbloods...
Youngbloods young hearts alike
Let the fires burn inside your eyes
We won't give up these memories
We won't go near those cemeteries
Youngbloods young hearts alike
Let the fires burn inside your eyes
6. Dr. Thunder
I know that you've been searching
For me elsewhere
In the cracks beneath your feet
In the spaces between walls
In the dark wells of the mirror
In the place I used to stand
I know that you've been searching
For me elsewhere

In the black pits of my mind
Where the tar of my emotions
Swirls black and ever thicker
Where I retreat
To hide from life
I have the reaper in my heart
And black tar pits for eyes

I have the cold heart of the lost ones
And no love to tear us apart
I know that you've been searching
In the spaces between words
But let me tell you
There's nothing there to read
There to read

Well I know that you've been searching
And you've looked inside your heart
But under oceans and in coffins
Is a better place to start
Place to start

You can't begin to know
The depths of the abyss
Until you've lost it all
Until you've seen yourself
Cause that reflection just
Ain't what it used to be
It sure as hell ain't what I want to see

Well I know that you've been searching
And you've looked inside your heart
But under oceans and in coffins
Is a better place to start

Heartbreak is the burden I bear
And the bottle's, is the blood I smear
Oh
Just burdens
Just guilt
Just loss
And just fear

Well I know that you've been searching
And you've looked inside your heart
But under oceans and in coffins
Is a better place to start
[x2]
7. Olde English 800
When your aspirations crumble
At the feet of your tormentors
And your jaw feels like it's breaking
On the cold hard tile floor
And you're holding onto something
That does far more harm than good
Well then you've reached the pits of hell
And there in hell you'll find the steel

To smash your skin until it's calloused
To grind your teeth down to the bone
To tear your tongue out from its shelter
And bleed out all alone
And when we get there we'll tread heavy
Through the boneyards and the filth
We'll grace the presence of the vultures
And spit fire of the gods

We'll both sit in our skin
And hate the places we have known
When your back feels like it's breaking
And your skin has turned to stone
And you are standing in the fire
And you are wishing to go back
Well then you've reached the pits of hell
Well then you've reached the pits of hell

I took this journey through the mirror
Took a chance to take my time
Just to watch the cold hard steel of burden
Come and break my heart and spine

I took a blade, a glass, a noose
And then I smashed my mind in two
With a bottle, pills and notion that I
Could drink my problems dead
I reached the cold pits of hell
And then I split my mind in two
And dragged my cold heart through the snow
And felt the coldest burn
Of all the grief I've come to know
Of all the grief I've come to know

I took this journey through the mirror
Took a chance to take my time
Just to watch the cold hard steel of burden
Come and break my heart and spine
[x2]

I've got a story here to tell you
Best you listen or grow cold
Cause if you choose the path I've chosen
Chances are you won't grow old
Won't grow old
8. No Sleep 'Til Brisbane
I know I stood there, singing to you
Please don't ever feel alone
And please don't dream of never heading home
But truth be told I've struggled just like you

Black hearts will sing tonight
Open your arms and let us fly tonight
Fly tonight
And when it's all said and done
You know we'll be alright
Black hearts will sing tonight

I've lived my life trying not to feel
Like I can't stop myself
From feeling oh so blue
I've fought the darkness
Cold anxiety for so many years
I know your dreams
I know your fears
I know the depths of the earth you wish
Would open up, take you inside
I know the blackness of night

Black hearts will sing tonight
Open your arms and let us fly tonight
Fly tonight
And when it's all said and done
You know we'll be alright
Black hearts will sing tonight

Can't move your limbs
Can't close your eyes
This song is written
For each and every breath you take
Cause we're alive
Cause we're alive
And take those thoughts of suicide
And set them alight
Throw those fucking thoughts out to
Your black heart nights
Your black heart nights

Black hearts will sing tonight
Black hearts will sing tonight
Black hearts will sing tonight
Black hearts will sing tonight

Black hearts will sing tonight
Open your arms and let us fly tonight
Fly tonight
And when it's all said and done
You know we'll be alright
Black hearts will sing tonight
9. R.I.P Foghorn
It's never easy to face yourself
Everyday, through the fog of shrouded memories
It's never easy to face your past
Everyday, through the haze of the aftermath

Yeah
It's never easy to admit
That you've faltered and fallen
You can't do this alone
That you can't do this all alone
I've felt the fear in your eyes
I've slipped into that void
And I've felt the cold of the morning
And I know

It's never easy to admit
That you've faltered and fallen
And you can't do this alone
Down in that void buried so deep
Searching for love but not for sleep
Just know that nothing's set in stone

And I know how some others won't
The cold steel and regret
The failure and remorse
Just trying to tell you
You're not here alone

OH
We're all in this together
Shining bright through the fog
Filling the skies with our light
With our light, with our light

It's never easy to admit
That you've faltered and fallen
And you can't do this alone
Down in that void buried so deep
Searching for love but not for sleep
Just know that nothing's set in stone

Don't be the one
To bear the weight of the world
While that world passes by

It's never easy to admit
That you've faltered
That you've fallen
I'm just trying to tell you
That you aren't here alone

It's never easy to admit
That you've faltered and fallen
And you can't do this alone
Down in that void buried so deep
Searching for love but not for sleep
Just know that nothing's set in stone

We're all in this together
Shining bright through the fog
We're all in this together.
10. Fuck The Yankees (feat. Helmet Roberts)
I've been trying to find the space and time
To let them know just what it's like
To be feeling so alone
To be feeling so alone
I know you stayed there waiting for
The world to heal itself
The world we existed in
The fucking world I turned to hell

If only I
Could fall through the earth
To reach you when the sun decides to set
Take your hand and let you feel
The warmth of grace's breath
I am the heart that keeps on beating
While you close your eyes at night
Not before and not forever
Will our hearts not beat together
And now it's happening again

I've been trying to find the space and time
To let them know just what it's like
To be feeling so alone
To be feeling so alone
And I know you stayed there waiting for
The world to heal itself
The world we existed in
The fucking world I turned to hell
And now it's happening again

And we are wishing things could just go back
To how they used to be
We've lost the innocence of youth
And left our hearts by the wayside
But I can tell in the years to come
We'll get it back and you will breathe ever so deeply

Then let go of all the heaviness
You've carried for so many years
Throughout the pain
Throughout the fear
Just know that I'll be here

I've been trying to find the space and time
To let them know just what it's like
To be feeling so alone
To be feeling so alone
And I know you stayed there waiting for
The world to heal itself
The world we existed in
The fucking world I turned to hell
And now it's happening again

Throughout the pain
Throughout the fear
Just know that I am here
Throughout the pain
Throughout the fear
Just know that I am here
Just know, just know
Just know that I am here
