Ashes to Ashes Lyrics

(13)
Submitted by level chelsea485
1. Playing with Fire (3:56)
We will lite ourselves a flame
Lite ourselves a flame as we kiss the sky

We set the fires to take us higher
We set the fires to watch them burn
Burn, burn, burn, burn, burn
Let’s burn this bastard to the ground

You’re my deep obsession
I'm the sweet depression
I'm your muse

Make it burn

We are the voices that ignite the masses
Scream for me, we are free
Strength in numbers, we encumber your dominion
Rightfully, I wanna hear you scream

Mercy please

I won’t stop, dead, or not
We are the voices that ignite the fucking truth

We set the fires to take us higher
We set the fires to watch them burn
Burn! Burn! Burn, burn, burn
Let’s burn this bastard to the ground

We set the fires to take us even higher
We set the fires to watch them fucking burn
Burn! Burn! Burn, burn, burn
Let’s burn this bastard to the ground

Burn it to the ground

Cleansing all the hate of the wicked
Liberate our life from oppression

Come on, make it burn

We set the fires to take us higher
we set the fires to watch them burn
Burn! Burn! Burn, burn, burn
Burn this bastard to the ground

We set the fires to take us even higher
we set the fires to watch them fucking burn
Burn! Burn! Burn, burn, burn
Let’s burn this bastard to the ground

We will lite ourselves a flame
Lite ourselves a flame, as we kiss the sky
2. Pledge Allegiance (4:05)
We’re blinded by a dead man

We are not the future
We're just puppets
We are not the future
We'll all die as fucking lab rats

We are not the future
We're just puppets
We are not the future
We'll all die as fucking lab rats

Stop living like a puppet
I won't die a fucking lab rat!
Stop living like a puppet
I won't die a fucking lab rat!

We're all living a lie!
They are blinding minds with the face of a dead man
We're all living to die
So take control, or just fucking die

Swallow lies, and force their "Idols" down your throat
And we don't see, we live life through a blindfold

We live life through a blindfold

We're all living a lie!
They are blinding minds with the face of a dead man
We're all living to die
So take control, or just fucking die

They are blinding minds with the face of a dead man
So take control or just fucking die

They lie, they blind our minds
They lie, they blind our minds
They lie, they blind our minds
We've all been brain washed from the fucking start!

They lie, they blind
Pledge allegiance to the mad man!
They lie, they blind
Pledge allegiance to the mad man!

Pledge allegiance to the mad man!
Pledge allegiance to the fucked!

We're all living a lie!
They are blinding minds with the face of a dead man
We're all living to die
So take control, or just fucking die

We're all living a lie!
They are blinding minds with the face of a dead man
We're all living to die!
So take control, or just fucking die

We can change the future
We're not puppets
We can change the future
We won't die as fucking lab rats
3. Morte ætérna (3:35)
The time becomes frozen
As your bones are broken
I am your master, I am your bane
I’m breathing the smoke in
From the depths of this prison
But you were the key and now I’m set free

Look in my eyes, stare at my face
I am the one who haunts you at night
Your angel of death, and soon you'll be mine

Look in my eyes, stare at my face
I am your sin, I am your faith
I've brought the carriage to take you away

Look in my eyes, stare at my face
I am your life, I am your breath
I am the reaper the angel of death

The feeling of despair
Sinks deep in this nightmare
You are my darling, you are my slave
Your skin begins to tear
For the love that we now share
My touch is your key
And now you’re set free

Fear me, for I am the angel of death

Look in my eyes, stare at my face
I am the one who haunts you at night
Your angel of death, and soon you'll be mine

Look in my eyes, stare at my face
I am your sin, I am your faith
I've brought the carriage to take you away

Look in my eyes, stare at my face
I am your life, I am your breath
I am the reaper the angel of death
4. Nightmares (5:12)
I’m haunted by my wildest dreams
I’m haunted by what’s living inside me
I’m haunted by my wildest dreams
I’m haunted by what’s living inside me

I’ve witnessed the thing living in my dream
It’s fighting and clawing it’s way out of me
I’ve witnessed the thing living in my dream
It’s fighting and clawing it’s way out of me

My dreams paint very vivid pictures of
Something stalking me, am I insane?
Or did I just hear someone try to talk to me

Screaming my name
What’s this nightmare in my head
What’s this nightmare name unsaid
Are you real, are you real

I’m haunted by my wildest dreams
I’m haunted by what’s living inside me
I’m haunted by my wildest dreams
I’m haunted by what’s living inside me

I’ve witnessed the thing living in my dream
It’s fighting and clawing it’s way out of me
I’ve witnessed the thing living in my dream
It’s fighting and clawing it’s way out of me

I can’t tell if it’s alive or dead
But in my dreams he’ll be there
He’ll always fucking be there with me

I’ve met the thing living in my dream
I have felt the fear growing inside of me

What do you want from me

Screaming my name
What’s this nightmare in my head
What’s this nightmare name unsaid
Are you real, are you real

I’m haunted by my wildest dreams

My dreams paint very vivid pictures of
Something stalking me, am I insane?
Or did I just hear someone try to talk to me

What’s in my head, what’s in your head
What’s in my head, what’s in your head
What’s in my head, I’m in your head
What’s in my head! What’s in my head!

I’ve witnessed the thing living in my dream
It’s fighting and clawing it’s way out of me
I’ve witnessed the thing living in my dream
It’s fighting and clawing it’s way out of me
5. Illuminate (5:56)
Open up my mind
Clear it of intention
I believed the lies
And fell for a deception of hope

Take me, only you can bring hope
Change deliverance from my pain
Deliverance from my pain

Save me, show me what you see
For hope, for change
It’s time we took the stage

It’s time I fight, fight
And stand up on my own two feet
Make them bleed, and I refuse
To let this be the end of me

Show me the light, light
I’m calling out to see your face
Show me your face, no more abuse
Our path in life is ours to choose

Free me from this life

I don’t want to be afraid
I just want to be something
Something new

It’s time I fight, fight
And stand up on my own two feet
Make them bleed, and I refuse
To let this be the end of me

Show me the light, light
I’m calling out to see your face
Show me your face, no more abuse
Our path in life is ours to choose

It’s time I fight
And stand up on my own two feet
And I refuse to let this be the end of me

I cannot resist
The urge to be like this

I just want to be redeemed
I’ll wipe away my tears
And overcome my fears

The time has come for me
To stand on my own two feet

And I don’t need to be
The freak that no one sees

It’s time I fight, fight
And stand up on my own two feet
Make them bleed, and I refuse
To let this be the end of me

Show me the light, light
I’m calling out to see your face
Show me your face, no more abuse
Our path in life is ours to choose

It’s time I fight
And stand up on my own two feet
And I refuse to let this be the end of me
6. Sellout (3:38)
This is the conversation
This is the time to talk
You have been lying all along
You’re not an inspiration
It’s time to walk the walk
I’ll force the truth out with this song

So fuck your role models
And fuck the scene too
I hate your morals,
I hate everything about you
Fuck your money
And fuck your music too
I hate your message
And pretending that I like you

Stop your bullshit
Shut your mouth
You’re overrated and foul
Fuck you, fuck you

So fuck your role models
And fuck the scene too
I hate your morals
I hate everything about you
Fuck your money
And fuck your music too
I hate your message
And pretending that I like you

When it comes time to fall
Where will your heroes be
And when you’re found
Crawling on your knees for thieves
Where will your heroes be

Ride your high horse straight to hell

This is my declaration
This is the final straw
I’m standing up for whom you’ve wronged
I’m here to send a message
You better watch your back
You know exactly who you are

So fuck your role models
And fuck the scene too
I hate your morals
I hate everything about you
I’ll fight your dad
And fuck your mother too
I hate your message
And pretending that I like you

When it comes time to fall
Where will your heroes be
And when you’re found
Crawling on your knees for thieves
Where will your heroes be
7. Waste Away (4:29)
Come on baby drink it down
I'm always questioning how you let me drown

You are the warmth that I adore
So sit back, relax, kick back
While we drink away our pain

Why’d you let me drown?!

The only smile I seek comes from
The bottom of the bottle I drink

Waste away
We did it for the fun
We did it for the pain
Waste away
Let's drink until the sunlight
Casts us all away

Waste away
We did it for the fun
We did it for the pain
Waste away
Let’s drink until the sunlight
Casts us all away

I don't care what they say
Let's drink until the sunlight
Casts us all away

Waste away
We did it for the fun
We did it for the pain
Waste away
Let's drink until the sunlight
Casts us all away

Waste away
We did it for the fun
We did it for the pain
Waste away
Let's drink until the sunlight
Casts us all away

Help me, dear god won't someone help me
To stop the bleeding
Please someone take my hand
My thoughts misleading
The only demon I believe in is myself

Waste away
We did it for the fun
We did it for the pain
Waste away
Let's drink until the sunlight
Casts us all away

Waste away
We did it for the fun
WE did it for the pain
Waste away
Let's drink until the sunlight
Casts us all away
8. Ashes (1:17)
9. ...To Ashes (2:16)
10. Angels Shall Sin, Demons Shall Pray (3:13)
Angels shall sin, demons shall pray
They came for our voice, and took it away

Our silent screams, our silent goodbye
They took our hope, they took our freedom
Wrapped us in chains
They took our hope, they took our freedom
We're not the same, we'll never be the same

I don't want be you
I don't want to see you
You say you're close to god?
I'd really like to meet him
I don't want to be you
I don't want to see you
I'm tired of all the shame
This time our voices will be heard!

They took our hope, they took our freedom
Wrapped us in chains
They took our hope, they took our freedom
We're not the same, we'll never be the same

I don't want be you
I don't want to see you
You say you're close to god?
I'd really like to meet him
I don't want to be you
I don't want to see you
I'm tired of all the shame
This time our voices will be heard

Scream my name, feel my pain
I’ll bleed you dry of faith

Call us by our name!
We are not the same
Call us by our name!
We're over playing games bitch
11. Letters (4:26)
We don't need to listen anymore
I can't I won't take this life for granted
We can't consume this madness

It's with me when I sleep
It's with me when I breath
It's with me in my bones
It's fucking killing me

I won't be cursed or judged
I won't be judged by something fake

We won't be pushed or shoved
We won't give up our love
It's time to take your stand
And take your life by the hand

Let's end this spiral down
Pick ourselves off the ground
Fuck their rules, and fuck their faith
Fuck the ones looking down on me

The rain IS pouring down
It's us who WEAR the crown
We don't need to hate this life
We don't need anything

I don't need you

We won't be pushed or shoved
We won't give up our love
It's time to take our stand
Take your life by the hand

Let's end this spiral down
Pick ourselves off the ground
Fuck their rules, and fuck their faith
Fuck the ones looking down on me

The rain IS pouring down
It's us who WEAR the crown
We don't need to hate this life
We don't need anything

I'M TIRED OF PLAYING THE FUCKING VICTIM
NO MORE WILL WE BOW OUR HEADS TO THE FUCKING MACHINE
THIS IS OUR TIME
THIS IS OUR GENERATION
AND I REFUSE TO FUCKING LISTEN ANYMORE
12. Cheers to Us (3:10)
We’ll all be dead some day
So sing this song with me
Live up tonight, right;
Don’t make me say it twice

So climb up out of that hole
Your shame has taken its toll
Pick up your glass
And drink it down, down, down

Cheers to us

Brothers and sisters
I wrote this one for you
You don’t have to be alone
You’re not alone

So climb up out of that hole
Your shame has taken its toll
Pick up your glass
And drink it down, down, down

This life just ain’t for us
Get up, and shake off that dust
This one’s for you
Now drink it down, down, down

This one’s for you

Get up and scream with me
Hey, hey, hey
I wanna hear you sing
Hey, hey, hey, hey!

Brothers and sisters
I will always be there for you
We’re in this thing together
So sing it with me

So climb up out of that hole
Your shame has taken its toll
Pick up your glass
And drink it down, down, down

This life just ain’t for us
Get up, and shake off that dust
This one’s for you
Now drink it down, down, down

Cheers to us

Now’s your time
Make your choice
Let me hear your voice
Yeah

Here’s to another day
Hey, hey, hey
Sing one more time with me
Hey, hey, hey, hey
13. Clockwork (4:31)
I hear them say
They say that you were never real
You look at me
And whisper bliss into my ear
So they say
They say that time will always heal
But look at me
And ask me how I really feel

I can't stop time!
I can't relive my past!
I’m left with a vacant memory of
How my life is moving way too fast

Turn back, it's just like clockwork
Watch me kiss my youth goodbye
All I wanted was to turn back time

The time lays waste to ashes
My soul lays waste the broken mind
The time lays waste to ashes
My soul lays waste the broken mind

Turn back, it's just like clockwork
Watch me kiss my youth goodbye
All I wanted was to turn back time

I'm begging on my knees!
Turn back! Turn back
Oh won't you spare me please!
I’m pleading! I’m grieving!

I can't fulfill my eternity
Eternity please, let me be
Just let me live again

Turn back, it's just like clockwork
Watch me kiss my youth goodbye
All I wanted was to turn back time

We'll say our good byes
Than slowly lay down to die
Our lives like clockwork
Another second simply flies on by

Goodbye!

And now they'll say!
They'll say that I was never real
Forgotten life!
A song that no one sang again
And I will be
A memory that will never heal
I turn to god
She whispers bliss into my ear

It's just like clockwork
Just let me go, let me go

The time lays waste to ashes
My soul lays waste the broken mind
14. Undying (5:07)
Come to me with bloodlust
Let me quench your thirst
Black roses fall around us
Let me be your first

Fill your needs, as the rest of us bleed
Don’t be scared, my love
Don’t you speak, just for now you must feed
Take it in my love

Arise and take flight
It’s love at first sight
Crucified in sadness
Unholy wings we fly

You need it, you breathe it
You feed it, my love
You see it, embrace it
My bride undead

You shall be the shepherd
Lead them all to hell
Black roses fall around us
Your beauty has prevailed

Fill your needs, as the rest of us bleed
Don’t be scared, my love
Don’t you speak, just for now you must feed
Take it in my love

Cry to me undying
Cry to me undying love

Arise and take flight
It’s love at first sight
Crucified in sadness
Unholy wings we fly

You need it, you breathe it
You feed it, my love
You see it, embrace it
My bride undead

You need it, you breathe it
You feed it, my love
You see it, embrace it
My undead bride

Arise and take flight
It’s love at first sight
Crucified in sadness
Unholy wings we fly

You need it, you breathe it
You feed it, my love
You see it, embrace it
My bride undead

You need it, you breathe it
You feed it, my love
You see it, embrace it
My bride undead

Arise and take flight
It’s love at first sight
Crucified in sadness
Unholy wings we fly

You need it, you breathe it
You feed it, my love
You see it, embrace it
My bride undead
15. Dust to Dust... (5:12)
I won’t be beaten or broken
I’ll reclaim what was stolen
This is who I’ve become
What once was weak is now strong

I stare from my window looking outside
Sometimes I wanna just die
I feel like I’m rotting on the inside
Too much has passed me on by

I can’t keep living life like this
There’s too many things that I have missed
With these words I’ll make one last wish
Take my regret and grant me life’s kiss

This is who I am

I won’t be beaten or broken
I’ll reclaim what was stolen
This is who I’ve become
What once was weak is now strong

As I look at myself in the mirror
I have never seen my life so clear
This is the face of what I have become
I accept fate and refuse to run

This is who I am

I won’t be beaten or broken
I’ll reclaim what was stolen
This is who I’ve become
What once was weak is now strong

I can’t erase my mistakes
But I won’t bend, I won’t break
This is who I’ve become

This is what I am
This is my life
This is who I’ve become

I won’t be beaten or broken
I’ll reclaim what was stolen
This is who I’ve become
What once was weak is now strong

I can’t erase my mistakes
But I won’t bend, I won’t break
This is who I’ve become
