From Death to Destiny Lyrics

(13)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Don't Pray for Me (4:40)
Yeah

Go

You're fucking crazy, if you think that I'll ever change
I am mine, I am me, I'll never change my ways
I must've a route to escape
Conduct a predetermined damnation for eternity
Damnation for eternity

I don't want you to cry, I don't even want you to care
Don't you dare, pray for me, no
There's things I bury inside, to keep away from the light
Don't you dare, pray for me

I been so fucked up for so long
And I can't keep my head up on my own
Holy fuck, why do I bother
Never gonna keep, anything
I wanted to fall down the crack
I don't give a fuck if I die today
Holy shit, I've lost my mind
Reality, is starting to unwind

Don't pray for me

I don't want you to cry, I don't even want you to care
Don't you dare, pray for me, no
There's things I bury inside, to keep away from the light
Don't you dare, pray for me

I don't want you to cry, I don't even want you to care
Don't you dare, pray for me, no
There's things I bury inside, to keep away from the light
Don't you dare, pray for me
2. Killing You (3:11)
You loved me for all the wrong reasons.
All the wrong reasons.
There's nothing but pain left here I know.
What's killing me,
Is that I'm killing you!

Three years of torment and torturous love,
Stained with tears and mistrust,
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
I can't hold you any longer in this hell I'm in,
Cause your heart is too weak for me to break again!
All the mistakes that I've made,
You forgave. What the fuck! You shouldn't have stayed.
You'd always say, "There's so much love in you!"
I can't believe that you can't see that...

You loved me for all the wrong reasons.
I'm not the same as I used to be.
There's nothing but pain left here, I know.
What's killing me,
Is that I'm killing you!

Do you remember the beginning?
Heartbeats one and the same...
Living smitten in Texas, burning bright as a flame!
So young and in love, no care what anyone said,
'Til my soul grew cold and my heart turned dead!

What went so wrong with me!
Why did I break this!
Why was I so blind, too fucking dumb to see,
That we were perfect, 'til I turned around
And gave in to debauchery!
This is your chance to escape this,
My goodbye with a last kiss.
Cause I know deep down, you know that...

You loved me for all the wrong reasons.
I'm not the same as I used to be.
There's nothing but pain left here, I know.
What's killing me,
Is that I'm killing you!

You loved me for all the wrong reasons.
I'm not the same as I used to be.
There's nothing but pain left here, I know.
What's killing me,
Is that I'm killing you!

WHAT'S KILLING ME!
IT'S KILLING ME! [x2]
I've GOT TO CUT YOU!
WHAT'S KILLING ME!
IT'S KILLING ME! [x2]
IS THAT I'm KILLING YOU!
3. The Death of Me (4:18)
Am I insane?
I ask myself over and over and over again
Trapped in my brain
Pull it out from the cracks in my skull
Am I alone?
Surrounded by shadows
I think I might just be suffocating

The devil came to take me to hell
But I'm already there.

Am I insane?
Am I insane?
Am I insane?

The devil came to take me to hell
But I'm already there.

[Chorus]
I won't let you be the death of me
No I refuse to let you bring me down
Bring me down
I won't let you make me out to be
The one who's in the wrong
And I've lost my mind before
But now I'm back
And I'm better than ever.

Am I insane?
I've rolled myself over
And screamed till I spit up blood
Trapped in my brain
The answer has taken my hands to pull my eyeballs out

Am I alone?
The voices who fight in my brain just won't fucking go away

The devil came to take me to hell
But I'm already there.

Am I insane?
Am I insane?
Am I insane?

Am I alone surrounded by death?
I think this might just be the end

Am I insane?
Am I insane?
Am I insane?

The devil came to take me to hell
But I'm already there.

You can't take this away from me
You can't release these demons
You can't make this OK for me
You're the one who caused these feelings

I apologize for what I'm about to do
I try to sympathize
But at the end of the day
You brought this on yourself

[Chorus]
I won't let you be the death of me
No I refuse to let you bring me down
Bring me down
I won't let you make me out to be
The one who's in the wrong
And I've lost my mind before
But now I'm back
And I'm better than ever
Now I'm back
And I'm better than ever

The tears
Have left a blur
That I can't explain
The pain
Has left a hole
In which my heart should've been

I'm blind with rage
And I can't shake this feeling
Irrational
Impetuous
And intemperate

I'm blind with rage
And I can't shake this feeling
Irrational
Impetuous
And temperate

I won't let you be the death of me
I refuse to let you bring me down
Bring me down
I won't let you make me out to be
The one who's in the wrong
And I lost my mind before
But I'm back and I'm better than ever
4. Run Free (4:10)
This world's yours for the taking
This world's yours for the taking
This world's yours for the taking
Run free!

Run free and wild lose your mind,
Escape your inhibitions,
Taste the wind,
Let your hair down,
Throw your hands up

Go, go, go,
But don't forget the consequences
Go, go, go,
Let go, running free

Open your heart, open your mind
To a new world, to a new world
Spread out your wings and learn to fly
To a new world, to a new world

This world's yours for the taking
This world's yours for the taking
This world's yours for the taking
Run free-ee-e-e-e!

Run free and wild, lose your mind
This world's yours for the taking
Open wide, scream it loud
"This is my life!"

Go, go, go,
But don't forget what came before
Go, go, go,
Let go, running free

Open your heart, open your mind
To a new world, to a new world
Spread out your wings and learn to fly
To a new world, to a new world

Close your eyes and pray for something better than
This world has to give!
Make it worth your time when you move on to
Whatever the hell is next!
Know that you went in the end without a single
Regret!
That you lived and loved and laughed and cried and
Followed your dreams!

You won't be alone in the end
You don't have to be afraid
Run free and wild, let your heart soar with the eagles
Run free and wild, let your love take over
You won't be alone in the end
You don't have to be afraid
5. Break Down the Walls (3:31)
Close your eyes and leave all your fears behind (it's alright)
Close your eyes and follow me until the end

So if you're hopeless
We can pick up the pieces
And if you're broken
I can carry the pain
Are you with me?
Watching the flames rise high (yeah)

Sing this with me
I break down the walls
I want it all
I won't stop until I burn this to the ground
Scream and shout
Till the lights go out
I won't stop until I burn this to the ground
We won't take this
You won't break us
We won't stop until the world is in our hands
I break down the walls
I want it all!
I won't stop until I burn this to the ground

Don't let go
We carry our torches high (always burning)
Come too far
To throw it all away
So are you with me?
Watching the flames rise high (yeah)

Sing this with me
I break down the walls
I want it all
I won't stop until I burn this to the ground
Scream and shout
Till the lights go out
I won't stop until I burn this to the ground
We won't take this
You won't break us
We won't stop until the world is in our hands
I break down the walls
I want it all
I won't stop until I burn this to the ground

I like the mess
I watch you fall to the ground
As the embers rise
And the smoke fills the air

I break down the walls
I want it all
I won't stop until I burn this to the ground
Scream and shout
Till the lights go out
I won't stop until I burn this to the ground
We won't take this
You won't break us
We won't stop until the world is in our hands
I break down the walls
I want it all
I won't stop until I burn this to the ground
6. Poison (3:46)
Imcompetent son of a bitch, keep your tongue tight
Cut your losses you're on thin ice so tread light
I don't wanna listen to your "he said, she said" shit
Keep your mouth shut and listen motherfucker
I can't stand this, it was never meant to be so hard
Satisfaction was supposed to come and ease my heart
I don't feel this anymore, I need to get away
All the love in my heart can't even find a way

These words they fall off my tongue like a poison
I hope they kill you all
I hope I never see your faces again
I wanna watch the whole world burn down
I wanna watch the world burn
I wanna watch the whole world burn down

I won't pretend I'm not disgusted with everything you are
I won't deny that I'm revolted by everything you say you stand for
Where do I go? What do I say? Where do I draw the line?
Can I move on? Can I let go before I lose my mind?
Am I alone after everything we've suffered through?
Feels though what once was us has dwindled down to me and you

These words they fall off my tongue like a poison
I hope they kill you all
I hope I never see your faces again
I wanna watch the whole world burn down
I wanna watch the world burn
I wanna watch the whole world burn down
7. Believe (4:31)
You've got to believe (believe)
You've got to believe (believe)
We've tried it all, tried everything but giving in
I refuse to throw all that we have away
I still recall, I still remember better days
The endless search comes on alive for I've regained

We can make a different team
Just close your eyes and this hand my dear
Just hold your breath and let me dry your tears
All you've got to do is believe

All you've got to do is believe, believe (believe)
All you've got to do is believe

The life you can't understand you just have to reach out and grab it, reach out and grab it
How could you send us somewhere waiting to come home? Waiting to come home

We can make a different team
Just close your eyes and this hand my dear
Just hold your breath and let me dry your tears
All you've got to do is believe

You don't have to cry another tear for me
I'll bleed until we take rejoice, hand in hand
Will you believe in me? Will you believe in me? Will you believe?

We can make a different team
Just close your eyes and this hand my dear
Just hold your breath and let me dry your tears
All you've got to do is believe

We can make a different team
Just close your eyes and this hand my dear
Just hold your breath and let me dry your tears
All you've got to do is believe

You've got to believe
You've got to believe
You've got to believe
You've got to believe
You've got to believe
8. Creature (3:14)
Deep in the shadows I'm fighting a battle
The creature wants me screaming, screaming
I think I'm losing, tired of choosing, I'm slipping down
I can't stop screaming, screaming

I'm living a lie, there's a creature hiding inside of me
Black as the night with a cold dead heart and a lust for sin
So I shut it out, I bottle up, I hide it from the world
If I let it out I don't know what I'll do
There's a creature inside of you too

I can't just turn to the menace I've clung to
The creature wants me screaming, screaming
I can't determine, I'm sure that it's hell bent on breaking out and
Hearing you screaming, screaming

I'm living a lie, there's a creature hiding inside of me
Black as the night with a cold dead heart and a lust for sin
So I shut it out, I bottle up, I hide it from the world
If I let it out I don't know what I'll do
There's a creature inside of you too

I can't hold back

I'm living a lie, there's a creature hiding inside of me
Black as the night with a cold dead heart and a lust for sin
So I shut it out, I bottle up, I hide it from the world
If I let it out I don't know what I'll do
There's a creature inside of you too
9. White Line Fever (3:43)
As I breathe, my disease brings me to my knees
All you need is a taste it’ll set you free
You’re infections my discretion honey one in the same
Cause I get so medicated it fucks with my brain

I don’t want this baby
I just need it

Cause I have a white line fever
and I never toured for sin,
If there's a black hole heading for hell
then maybe count me in?
I sold my soul so long ago
the bullet in the chamber with nowhere to go,
If there's a black hole heading for hell
then maybe count me in?
I sold my soul

Licking every drop of poison
off the back of your keys
While some daddy's little angels
getting down on her knees
When the sun comes down
the filth runs free
You’ll never find a brighter specimen
than filth in me

I don’t want this
I Just Need This
To Carry On

I've got the white line fever
and I never toured for sin
If there's a black hole heading for hell
then maybe count me in?
I sold my soul so long ago
the bullet in the chamber with nowhere to go
If there's a black hole heading for hell
then maybe count me in?

So they’ll send down the devil
and he stressed his wealth
Cause I've been through a burned town
and rebuilt hell
with a heart of ice
he did not give a fuck
I’m a noose to the world
and I’m painting it black

I've got the white line fever
and I never toured for sin
If there's a black hole heading for hell
then maybe count me in?
I sold my soul so long ago
the bullet in the chamber with nowhere to go
If there's a black hole heading for hell
then maybe count me in?

I sold my soul
10. Moving On (4:02)
A boy of anguish now, he's a man of soul,
Traded in his misery for the lonely life of the road.
The years were cruel to him no,
He will let them go.
Lays awake tryna' find the man inside to back his bugs and escape this world.

I've never been so torn up in all of my life,
I should of seen this coming.
I've never felt so hopeless,
Than I do tonight.
I don't wanna do this anymore, I'm moving on.

He wanted to change the world, to make it all worthwhile.
So he put his pen to paper and poured out everything inside.
He's read the scene and unpacked the man that he had became.
So leave him trailing on the fasttrack to falling into his grave.

I've never been so torn up in all of my life,
I should of seen this coming.
I've never felt so hopeless,
Than I do tonight.
I don't wanna do this anymore, I'm moving on.

I can't believe I've come so far in such a time,
And I'm still fighting on my own.
I fucked up to catch my breath I may never breathe again, so just notice:

I've never been so torn up in all of my life, I can't believe I let myself breakdown.

I've never been so torn up in all of my life,
I should of seen this coming.
I've never felt so hopeless,
Than I do tonight.
I don't wanna do this anymore...

I've never been so torn up in all of my life,
I should of seen this coming.
I've never felt so hopeless,
Than I do tonight.
No I don't wanna do this anymore, I'm moving on.

A boy of anguish now, he's a man of soul,
Traded in his misery for the lonely life of the road.
11. The Road (3:27)
Street signs, so many street signs pass me by every night and
I know tomorrow I won't recognize the world
Home bound, but I want to be home now
Two more months of empty faces standing there screaming up at me
And I don't know why

I wanna go home I wanna sleep in my own bed
I want a normal life again
Is this the end? Is this the end?
No matter how hard I try, all I know is the road
All I know is the road

Save me, can anyone save me?
I don't know who I am anymore
This was supposed to be the dream
You don't see the pain in my eyes?
You don't hear the pain in my words?
I'm just stuck here cold and alone with no one beside me
And I wanna go home

I wanna go home I wanna sleep in my own bed
I want a normal life again
Is this the end? Is this the end?
No matter how hard I try, all I know is the road
All I know is the road

And you wonder why I'm out of my mind?

I wanna go home I wanna sleep in my own bed
I want a normal life again
Is this the end? Is this the end?
No matter how hard I try, all I know is the road
All I know is the road
12. Until the End (4:30)
This isn't me any more,
I need something to believe in

If you think you've seen the last of me
The flat line has come and gone
but wo't take me away
I'm tortured
By this dream I've manufactured
War torn
From the inside out but it makes me stronger
I'm not the person you see
When you look into these eyes
I've got a reason
To believe in something more
I know there's something more

I've heard it all before,
but I won't sing my last song
'til I'm flat out on the floor
I've longed for so much more,
I wanna be the best that I can be

I'm sick and tired of being admired,
I don't deserve this pedestal you've put me on
All I want is to be proud of who I am
I brought this hell upon myself,
now I gotta see it through 'til the end
13. The Death of Me (Rock mix) (3:24)
Am I insane?
I ask myself over and over and over again
Am I alone?
Surrounded by shadows I think
I might just be end
Am I insane?
Am I insane?
Am I insane?
Am I alone?
Surrounded by shadows I think
I might just be end

I won't let you be the death of me
I refuse to let you bring me down
Bring me down
I won't let you make me out to be
The one who's in the wrong
And I've lost my mind before
But now I'm back
And I'm better than ever

The devil came to take me to hell
But I'm already there
The voices grow fainter but they won't go away
Am I insane?
Am I insane?
Am I insane?
The devil came to take me to hell
Over and over again
But I'm already there

I won't let you be the death of me
I refuse to let you bring me down
Bring me down
I won't let you make me out to be
The one who's in the wrong
And I've lost my mind before
But now I'm back
And I'm better than ever
Now I'm back
And I'm better than ever

The tears have left a blur
That I can't explain
The pain has left a hole
In which my heart should be
I'm blind with rage
And I can't shake this feeling
Irrational
Infectious
Intemperate
I'm blind with rage
And I can't shake this feeling
Irrational
Infectious
Intemperate

I won't let you be the death of me
I refuse to let you bring me down
Bring me down
I won't let you make me out to be
The one who's in the wrong
And I've lost my mind before
But now I'm back
And I'm better than ever
