My Devil in Your Eyes Lyrics

1. Nerve Endings (3:07)
Dreams are forever reoccurring,
And life is what happens when we can't fall asleep,
We need to bare one another's burdens,
Real family and friends will always stab you in the front,
The end result is not one damned thing after another,
It's one damned thing over and over,
We are condemned and this is how we learn.

Don't you see it's time to let go of everything,
that's keeping us from the truth,
keeping me from you,
so what good are all the pictures,
if they have yet to gather flames,
leave your past in the past and focus on what you don't want framed.

Dreams are forever reoccurring,
And life is what happens when we can't fall asleep,
And dreams are the same thing as nightmares.

Don't you see it's time to let go of everything,
that's keeping us from the truth,
keeping me from you,
so what good are all the pictures,
if they have yet to gather flames,
leave your past in the past and focus on what you don't want framed.

Oh leave your past in the past,
We don't have to keep our mistakes displayed.

You are keeping me awake.
Leave your past behind you.

Dreams are forever reoccurring.
2. Human(s) Being (feat. Chad Ruhlig of Legend) (3:48)
This is the real world in real time
And I am sick of rendering
So toss your seeds on cement
And see if they can grow alone

There is a reason behind weeds
When walls are broken we can break
Through them all
To see what continues to grow

It's hard to see humility
Because humanity is lead by us men
And we all need exorcisms and exercising
{were} born with two sides and need to stay in shape

You're so insecure standing in your own skin
Someday you won't need it

And I can't do this on my own
And I will always be an imperfect human just being me, just being me
And I will always be an imperfect human being me
Stop worrying about where you've been because it brought you back to me

It's hard to see humility
Because humanity is lead by us men
And we all need exorcisms and exercising
{were} born with two sides and need to stay in shape

And we can be delivered even if it's late
Being late is okay if we reach our destination

I am not afraid to die
I am not afraid to die
I am terrified of life
I am terrified

I am not afraid to die
I am not afraid to die
I am terrified of life
I am terrified

You're so insecure standing in your own skin
Someday you won't need it anymore
I will walk alone
3. The Dying Hymn (3:39)
So go ahead and turn away
See where it gets you in the long run.
I'm trying my hardest to grow
When it's embedded in your bones
It grows with.

Are we all punished for sins of fathers.
It seems so pointless to have an existence
In a world misused.

It seems so pointless to have an opinion
When yours is never true.

Just try to imagine
A life without love
But death has its hold on us.
So think upon beauty
Its like painting a picture
When everything's shaded in grey
And even when we've been face to face
We have never seen eye to eye
So take a good look in mine
It's a window to a soul that knows not why.

You can't continue this direction
It's detours and dead ends.
Don't join this kind of company
Unless your joining to fight.
Fight for your life.

Losing the fight is getting knocked down and staying there.

So why do I turn away it's getting me nowhere.
Nowhere in the long run

The world can't make you faithless when faith is first.
Where is your faith
4. Be Longing Always (4:03)
(I've got my father's teeth
And my mother's bygones.
We are all victims of consequence.
And we can built it or tear it down
With the same two hands!)

(We all fail,
But we are not all failures.
Preaching to never fail,
We don't have to live like this!)

Don't live your life in shame,
(Chasing what was too far away!)
It's not a contest
And look if you want.
You'll speak and you'll speak,
But not around to me.
Broken homes lead the way
For twisted tongues.

(Broken homes
Lead way for twisted tongues,
We will not be forgotten.
This will be the reason I refuse
To find to a way break this empathy.
We want too easy!)

(I found a foot hole in the fault line.
There was only a voice,
There was only Him.
And this is what it said:)

I still love you somehow,
And I still love you somehow.

Don't live your life just yet,
(Chasing what was too far away!)
It's not a contest
And look if you want.
You'll speak and you'll speak,
But not around to me.
Broken homes lead the way
For twisted times.

(I still love you, I still love you somehow!)

(I still love you somehow.
I still love you somehow
And I always will!)

(You've got a tape worm
Growing within your soul.
You're gonna have to dig it out alive.
Dig it out. Dig it out, dig it out!)

I still love you somehow,
And I still love you somehow.
5. Walkers (3:17)
We don't feel the world turn,
Take these steps in my days,
One at a time.
We all start the same dreams,
Don't try them, you're asleep.

(We all try to run from our problems
And straight to the answers.
We all spend our time chasing grace,
But not listening to own my faith.
Without that faith we'd just decay!)

We are not useless.

We are not useless just used.
And I see something
In you I'm going to prove.
(Useless and used!)
We've been used.
(This is what we're all going through!)

Whom ever loses us, whom ever loses us.
(Whom ever loses us, whom ever loses us!)

We are not useless.

We are not useless just used.
And I see something in you
I'm going to prove.
(Useless and used,
This is what we're all going through!)

(You never know when you're close.
Close inside,
Until you reach inside and force it out.
Will we ever we make the demons leave?
So we can learn in peace.
We've all got it buried underneath!)

Whom ever loses us, whom ever uses us.

They say that home is where the heart is
It's all we've got to part with.
We all have to find love alone.
They say that home is where the heart is,
You make me your home.

We won't feel the world turn,
If we keep standing still.
6. Demon Teeth (feat. Joey Sturgis) (2:58)
Twenty something
Years of seclusion
Seems to be quite enough

Just get me out of this town
It's like a dried up,
lake full of debris and I am starting to drown
Sometimes I can see clearer
Through rear view mirrors
Then windshields with
All the places I've been

How do I find my destination?
Neither one of us is getting out
Of the situation alive
Until the other one dies

And it wont be me
You clench your hold like you clench your teeth
And I will send you back to hell
Holding your jaw,
Like your demon teeth

Your demon teeth

Put your ghosts in the past
Don't put your torment back
Beneath it's reoccurring
Pull apart its jaw
And smash out its teeth

Who do I believe?
When everyone sees and speaks
Based in part by what they themselves believe
I'd Rather see a man of god
Than hear from one
Any day of the week
So take hold of these demons
Cast them into pigs
But don't let a single one of them leap
Take their filth
And let them learn
(No, no, no, no) Just let them teach

[x2]
Instead of reading the book (I've read the book)
Try Meeting The Author (I've met the author)

That's my problem, I've had the devil on both sides
With god at the bottom (ughhhh)

Chin Up
Chin Up

He doesn't pick where he stands,
I pick where I place him.
7. Falling Awake (3:33)
In spite of my cheerful demeanor
I'm afraid to set foot in the world
We watch the same dead clocks
These small hands need to meet the larger again

I chose a road, one that I didn't know...
Now it has brought me here
The stories that I have gathered in travels,
I wouldn't trade for the years, back

There's a war inside,
I need something to get me through this
Without you, am I ever myself
The only thing holding us back is us
You should back away from us
And ghosts from the last time
Are all the same
We can live again
We can live again
We can live again
All we can do is try and try and try and try to change
For ourselves

The night has been my covering
And the day is my disguise
But I can't seem to stay far enough away,
From self created lies

For those of you who question your purpose
Look inside the eyes staring back at you
Past your devil
They long for purpose too
And maybe that's yours, I know cause it's mine

You are the second hand air that I breathe
And these songs were made for you to sing before me
And they are more than just sound
And you are more than just an audience
This is the family I've found

The night has been my covering
And the day is my disguise
But I can't seem to stay far enough away,
From self created lies

I chose a road, and now I know
Nothing will ever come easy
I chose this road
Staying asleep is worse than falling awake
I chose this road
Staying asleep is worse than falling awake
8. Quote on Quote (feat. Chris Roetter of Like Moths to Flames) (3:40)
(You said to live life
And live it in abundance,
But you yourselves are abundantly dead!)

(And if not for a reason,
I would have another reason to stay.
I need to find a place
Where I can fill my faith,
I don't need it taken!)

(Oh, I will learn to let you go.
Oh, learn to let you go
Back to your shadow!)

Take me to the place
Where I can restore my faith.
Oh, I wrote and said that you are skin.
One day they will be
The earth and it's world.

(Are you a preacher or a pastor,
A teacher and a bastard?
Are you...
Are you a preacher or a pasture,
A teacher and a bastard just like me?
Just like me!)

(You said to live life.
Since the day we were made,
We've all started to die.
But I can only listen once,
Well, nobody ever dies once!)

Take me to the place
Where I can restore my faith.
Oh, I wrote and said that you are skin.
One day they will be
The earth and it's world.

(Go on, speak for yourself.
Speak for yourself!)

(Pull apart your scarecrows,
Pull apart your scarecrows!)
9. This Lost Song Is Yours (3:53)
Has the dark been forever calling
When I stare off alone, is the devil with
I didn't create the disease, I just diagnosed
I wanna be missed but I just can't go

No, don't take me back there
Don't take me back there, no
Bury me a hole in the sky
Not in my mind
No one ever makes it out of life alive
That's no excuse for you to not try

Has the dark been forever calling
When I take trips alone, is the devil with
I didn't create the disease
You were created in me

No, don't take me back there
Don't take me back there, no

Our life's a road not a destination
In my travels tonight, you were my inspiration
You'll make it past this night
More alive

The cleanest we'll be is the day before
We're buried in soil
Where we'll make peace with worms
And I've seen you in dust
But not dirt
You'll make your peace
But you still won't know where you belong
But I'll be there with you

The world's tried to make me
Put a hole through my own head
And bury me there
It would be too easy
This is the lost not the last
I've always needed
Help

We all have our scars to show
They will forever try to close
We've all made mistakes but grown from
The last song that you'll hear
Will be your own
10. Fill Avoid (3:36)
I’ll never know comfort till the sun sets.
I’ve always known the struggle when the light and my eyes met.
They connect.
Put me back in the earth.
I came from dust and not dirt.
You made me from dust, not dirt.
