Overcome Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. Before the Damned (2:50)
Let them hail the hollow one
Bow before the damned
Forge ahead into the night
Forget the lessons of the past

No remorse for the sinner
No repent for the waking dead
Hide their faces from the light
Let the past live again

We will set in motion
Changing of the times
We have not forgotten
We control our lives

Fallen feed on fallen now
Let the wretched have their fill
Feast not with the beast of old
Taste the fruit of ill will

We can band together now
Cast the dead from our site
Let them fall to massacre
Let the truth be our guide
2. Two Weeks (4:17)
And you neglected I called you out
don't please
I said we're stronger than this now
You resurrected mistakes
years past it seemed
And they exist to still haunt you

And still you feel like the loneliness
Is better replaced by this
I don't believe it this way
And I can see the fear in your eyes
I've seen it materialize
Growing stronger each day

I could see it as you turned to stone
Still clearly I can hear you say
Don't leave, don't give up on me
Two weeks and you ran away
I remember don't lie to me
You couldn't see that it was not that way
Swear I never gave up on you

I wanted nothing but for that trust again
And brick by brick you would take it
You feared of phantoms and none exist but you
You still saw fit to destroy it

And still you feel like the loneliness
Is better replaced by this
I don't believe it this way
And I can see the fear in your eyes
I've seen it materialize
Growing stronger each day

I could see it as you turned to stone
Still clearly I can hear you say
Don't leave don't give up on me
Two weeks and you ran away
I remember don't lie to me
You couldn't see that it was not that way
Swear I never gave up on you

And you neglected I called you out don't please
I said we're stronger than this now
You feared of phantoms and none exist but you
You still saw fit to destroy it

And I can see the fear in your eyes
I've seen it materialize
Growing stronger each day

I could see it as you turned to stone
Still clearly I can hear you say
Don't leave don't give up on me
Two weeks you ran away

I could see it as you turned to stone
Still clearly I can hear you say
Don't leave don't give up on me
Two weeks and you ran away
I remember don't lie to me
You couldn't see that it was not that way
Swear I never gave up on you
3. Undone (3:12)
Well hot damn!!

It's hard to tame the passion
That leads me here
No better choice no stronger voice
I'll sacrifice not fear

I've pushed through hesitation
I've seen through doubt
I'm better now within her eyes
Than I'll ever be without

We can push through
We are one in this
We are not undone

I know my limitations
I've learned from life
This great reward I'm honor bound
Not sacrifice not price

I've found my inspiration
Held in both hands
I'm fully whole in trust and care
I'm stronger
4. Forever in Your Hands (3:36)
I know that I can stand my head high
Forget not where I fall
Still I find why and reason

Yet that conflict still filling me
Mistrust venom inside of me
I am not the man that you see
Just look inside me

Trust in me the way I trusted you
I know we could have done this together
Believe in me like I believed in you
My heart would be forever in your hands

How I miss February still
Now that this becomes the moment
Of all our failures

Yet that conflict still filling me
Mistrust venom inside of me
I am not the man that you see
Just look inside me

Trust in me the way I trusted you
I know we could have done this together
Believe in me like I believed in you
My heart would be forever in your hands

Trust in me the way I trusted you
I know we could have done this together
Believe in me like I believed in you
My heart would be forever in your hands

Forever in your hands
5. Chiron (4:24)
Have not the strongest
And closest ties been bound so long
I've called upon them
They remind me where I'm from
With deep conviction
I am connected cross the miles
With out them nothing worth relying on

It's been so long since I could say
I've needed anything stronger
We can't be wrong when we have ties that bind us
If I rely and I know the strength
In those who taught me of the
Power in the ties that bind

When I turn inward
And look for strength within my self
And demonstrations of courage
Are the result
If inspiration is wholly shared
Then more is the gain
Then I will follow
The selfless actions displayed

We are made powerful
6. Days Without (3:11)
And now destined to be
The last one standing here
The past alive to me
And mocking hope is all I had

In weakness it hides from me
And then it infiltrates my heart

So wrong to think I had found
It was so long since I felt that at all
I had dreamed long in days without
I had so long wanted something much more

Those looks so lovingly caressed
My thoughts and still today
They scream to me
Their sweet warmth moistening my breath

I may never get away
I crave I hunger

And still I leave behind
This wreckage in my wake
I was not long inside
But still savor the taste

I'd rather hate myself for failing
Than hate myself for never having tried
Nothing will fill me
The way these passions do
The feeling tempts me and warms me
7. Song for the Hopeless (4:15)
The day has ended
I lay awake
A soft glow over my shoulder
I'll sleep soon
Wake tomorrow and then it's all the same

And I'll destroy the memories one by one
The bitter past erased
I'll not replace
What's done is done

No belief is all that's left and I do not regret
The darkness welcomes me back home

And I am still my own
Can't take away

And I feel the pain still deeply
It seems sometimes too much to bear
I have a core within me still
My strength is there

And I am still my own
And I can't be made less
I know who I am
8. Do Not Obey (3:12)
Never one to be held back or held down
I'd write my name so the king could see
I will follow the true declaration
And find some hope in what mankind could be

I've worked so hard
Let my deeds be my witness
And let my words flow through everyone
When free men stand
Against what would bind them
No hope for tyrants
We will over come

Do not obey
No masters now
Do not obey
Not subjects
We have held on for so long
Do not obey

Talking heads tell the masses the story
They shape the lie in the schools and the TV
Our fathers work and intent is unwritten
By the lazy who don't know they're free

I hear the story and it makes me determined
To spread the word that we can't just lay down
What we read and we see drawn before us
Is a lie and we must hold our ground

It's found in you
It's found in me
From birth to stone
We remain free as always
9. Relinquish (2:51)
Still push harder and still the facts remains
Just one to an open end so quickly
A simple step now a small matter of time
lest not regret now I'll make you push the line

Follow the lead to failure
relinquish and pay no mind

Misplace my judgement misstep the card house falls
That will not be my legacy
This whole creation we've built through effort and time
We make this happen we hold together with pride
10. Overcome (2:38)
Past it haunts again
The dream's alive
And forms the nightmare that has no end
Foreshadow all tomorrows
So this day to day has my core shaken
Still I raise my spirits high
I am above this

I should never have thought that
This would never end
The moment we started
Old wounds you could not mend

Five ended today
Six since the four time take away
My dreams have fallen
No more to share
Now the end remains
MY one regret like black and stained
And spring again
I fall from grace

I should never have thought that
This would never end
The moment we started
Old wounds you could not mend

I should never have thought that
This would never end
The fear was too much for us to battle
So this day to day has my core shaken
Still I raise my spirits high
I am above this

I should never have thought that
This would never end
The moment we started
Old wounds you could not mend

I should never have thought that
This would never end
The fear was too much for us to battle
11. Believe in Nothing (Nevermore Cover) (4:23)
[Nevermore Cover]

Into a strange new world, into the after
All your tears might find you've fallen too far
Take another look, take another ride
Can't we make them leave the hate behind

And I still believe in nothing
Will we ever see the shape of tomorrow?

Into the empty storm, into the formless loss of hope,
Where we can forget the game

And I still believe in nothing
Will we ever see the cure for our sorrow

Nothing is sacred when no one is saved
Nothing's forever so count your days
Nothing is final and no one is real
Pray for tomorrow and find your empty still

Nothing
