Conquer Divide Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level chelsea485
1. Sink Your Teeth Into This
Hell-bent on the past, I'll become a martyr for your cause
True revenge, so here's to the friends I've lost

You took what you could get at my expense
So I'll burn the only bridge that you have left
And now you're wondering why you and I are through
Cause sorry is a word that you never knew

This foundation crumbled to the dust
I got up and brushed it off
I guess you thought you were flawless, hypocrite
Talk is cheap so put your money where your mouth is
Look at me now; can you stand to see what I've become? (What I've become)
Follow the masses and fall
All will fall, the war is won

How does it feel to know you threw it away
As you watch my dreams come true?
How does it feel to hear 'em screaming my name?
But they won't remember you
You put the knife right in my back
And you lost the best thing you never had, oh

Cast the first stone, we both know it was easy for you
Let it sink in, I built an empire from the stones that you threw

I maintained my pride in the face of men
Draw me out of nothingness to make me what I am
I guess you walk the path of righteousness
I hope you drown in the water under the bridge

(Today)

I've been searching for a reason why
Today you turned your back on me
You used up all my loyalty
And then lied to me (Yeah)

How does it feel to know you threw it away
As you watch my dreams come true?
How does it feel to hear 'em screaming my name?
But they won't remember you
You put the knife right in my back
And you lost the best thing you never had, oh

There are seventy-two thousand
Five hundred and nineteen stones in my walls
Today you turned your back on me
You used up all my loyalty, loyalty
Another lie, another fake friend
Look at me now, can you stand to see what I've become?
2. Self Destruct
Have I lost my mind I'm suffocating, it's killing me and I can't face it
Will I ever learn enough is enough
I count these scars and wonder what have I become

Looking at me, now tell me what do you see
Feel like I lost control, but I won't let you see through me
I let you get too close, I don't care how hard I try
These walls are caving in and you're not getting out alive

These scars are tearing me apart and I can't hide what I've become inside
Cause I've got an appetite for sin, I'm self destructing
And I wanna take another hit, but I'm drowning, drowning

Strip me of everything on the surface I've become so artificial
I just wanna feel something real, can you blame me
Somebody save me from myself
Cause you were drowned out like the ocean waves
And now you're drifting away
Turn me inside out so that I can see what's become of me

I'm drowning in the waves and I can't take the weight
This is the start of the end, the bitter taste of regret
The wolves are at my door waiting to come inside
I sold my soul and now I'm losing my mind
I'm losing my mind
I lost myself
This isn't what I'm meant to be
Who's gonna save me now
I lost myself
This isn't what I'm meant to be
No, no

Strip me of everything on the surface, I've become so artificial
I just wanna feel something real, can you blame me
Somebody save me from myself
Cause you were drowned out like the ocean waves
And now you're drifting away
Turn me inside out so that I can see what's become of me

I've got an appetite for sin
I'll self-destruct until there's nothing left
3. Eyes Wide Shut
Mistakes that you made
Don't be surprised that they're carved in stone
I never thought we'd come undone
Till I learned that you can't trust anyone (Oh)

It's times like these that I gave in
But times have changed; you're getting under my skin
I think I'm out of my mind
Because I'm staring with my eyes closed, sitting here
You keep ignoring the past
On your knees like a bitch and you keep crawling back
It's a waste of my time
Because I'm staring with my eyes closed, sitting here blind

I closed my eyes, ignoring the circumstance
It's so clear; you were never there
And I can't pretend there's nothing wrong
When you loved me in your messed up ways
Well it's not enough for me to stay

Games that you play
Don't be surprised when you're all alone
You better hurry up, get going
Cause honestly you think I'm joking

There's no hope for tomorrow
It's a lesson learned so I let you go
And I'll bury your name
Because I can't live off the happiness of better days

I closed my eyes, ignoring the circumstance
It's so clear; you were never there
And I can't pretend there's nothing wrong
When you loved me in your messed up ways
Well it's not enough for me to stay

Why can't you face me?

Well you've got the best of me (Best of me, best of me)
Well you've got the best of me

I tried to forget you
But baby, you were my perfect disease

(Oh) Was it all a dream? You can't seem to disagree
Well I wish I'd never let you get to see this side of me
Here's another story for your eyes to finally see
What will never be, we'll never be
Watch me walk away

I gave you everything and now I'm so numb
Cause I'm staring with my eyes closed, sitting here blind
I gave you everything and now I'm so numb
Cause I'm staring with my eyes closed, sitting here blind

I gave you everything
I gave you everything
I gave you everything
I'm so numb
4. Nightmares
You're like a deer in the headlights
What I said you didn't wanna believe
You're so inane and misguided
You won't get the best of me

Well I can't help that it's not worth it
You had your chance and you missed out
You couldn't change me, so don't mistake me
I'm not someone who will back down

Last night I saw that your intentions
Were relentless (Relentless)
What makes you think I won't fight back?
I'm outstretched but you're outmatched

So here we are, make your move
But you don't have what it takes
I'm on the edge and I don't care
I never said that I'd fight fair
I'm awaiting the next provocation
It's not me, you just love the fixation

You could break me in every way
You could bring me right to my knees
By the time you count to three
I'll be standing on my own two feet
You're the nightmare that's chasing me
You could tear away all my dreams
I'll show you what it means to scream
When I'm standing on my own two feet
My own two feet

The skies disguised like you with all your charm
Till lightning hits the ground
I can't believe you thought I'd save you
When you'd just let me drown

Wake up cause you're not listening
Tell me what it is that you fail to see
I won't let you destroy this
You're just a self-fulfilling prophecy

You could break me in every way
You could bring me right to my knees
By the time you count to three
I'll be standing on my own two feet
You're the nightmare that's chasing me
You could tear away all my dreams
I'll show you what it means to scream
When I'm standing on my own two feet
My own two feet

Is that all you've got?
Try to bring me down, let's see how far you get
Just walk away, you're too little too late
And that was your last mistake

You can't take away part of me, my dreams
Your voice meaningless, I'm what you'll never be
You're not what I made up, a figment of a dream
You said you'd bring me to my knees

These footprints in the ground
No, I'm never falling down
When will you see (These footprints in the ground)
I'm done playing these games, screaming in vain (No, I'm never falling)
Waiting for you to hear me (Down)

You could break me in every way
You could bring me right to my knees
By the time you count to three
I'll be standing on my own two feet
You're the nightmare that's chasing me
You could tear away all my dreams (Tear away all my dreams)
I'll show you what it means to scream
When I'm standing on my own two feet

(You're the nightmare that's chasing me)
A figment of a dream
You're not what I made up
You said you'd bring me to my knees

(Now I'm standing on my own two feet)
5. Lost
Where are you tonight?
We can't erase the mess we made
It wasn't worth the price I paid
Where are you tonight
Cursed every mile we ever crossed
And have you ever been so lost

This is over with, I'm done fighting against myself
This is over with, I deserve better than this

I just wanted to find myself, I'm holding on to distant memories
I'm trying to fill this void
I can't face the storm raging inside of me
Oh, if I could just find my way back then I would be whole
Can you hear it, can you hear my heart giving up I'm breaking

Where are you tonight
We can't erase the mess we made
It wasn't worth the price I paid
Where are you tonight
Cursed every mile we ever crossed
And have you ever been so lost

It's taken my heart, my mind, my body and soul
To get myself out of this bottomless hole
No matter hard it is to run away
I'll have to say this is over with
I'm done fighting against myself
This is over with, I deserve better than this

Where are you tonight
We can't erase the mess we made
It wasn't worth the price I paid
Where are you tonight
Cursed every mile we ever crossed
And have you ever been so lost

Couldn't let this go I'm so alone and I've never felt so low
I left it all behind I've been torn apart for so long
Whoa

Trapped in my own ambitions I'm so alone
Parted, I've become so distant I guess I should have known
I was one foot out the door never satisfied
But I can't admit no I just can't admit
I was looking, longing for a life
That does not exist no it does not exist
The clock is ticking disconnected from reality
As my eyes skim the horizon
My heart is pounding this road was a dead end
So I'm coming home, yeah I'm coming home
6. What's Left Inside
Face down
I'm somewhere far away
And I'm lost now
Cause you just see me for all my mistakes

I was never good enough, no
You never had to say the words
It was right on your face; you just pushed me away
And every time I heard that door swing
I remember wishing I was anywhere else
In spite of myself

Tell me was it worth this?
Cause God knows I'm not perfect

Are you happy now, are you happy now?
Can you look me in the eye and tell me everything is fine?
Are you happy now, are you happy now?
You just can't apologize, leave me broken inside

What's left inside
What's left inside
What's left inside
Cause I don't know what's left inside
What's left inside
I take a look at myself
And I don't know what's left

I'm counting the time
Cutting the tension with a knife
Too consumed by the lies
To see that your life is passing you by

It was never good enough, no
You never had to say the words
It was right on your face; you just pushed me away
And how was I supposed to feel?
I was sixteen and wishing I was anyone else
But I can change myself

Tell me was it worth this?
I know you'd care if I was perfect

Are you happy now, are you happy now?
Can you look me in the eye and tell me everything is fine?
Are you happy now, are you happy now?
You just can't apologize, leave me broken inside

What's left inside
What's left inside
What's left inside
Cause I don't know what's left inside
What's left inside
I take a look at myself
And I don't know what's left

No, you can't live through me, oh
Cause this is who I am and I will never be
What you want me to be, who you wanted to be

Are you happy now, are you happy now?
Act like everything is fine but your whole life has been a lie
Are you happy now, are you happy now?
You just won't apologize cause you were always right

What's left inside
What's left inside
What's left inside
Cause I don't know what's left inside
What's left inside
What's left inside

No, there's nothing left inside
No, there's nothing left inside
No, there's nothing left inside
There's nothing left inside
There's nothing left inside
7. At War
This is war

Just take a look around, we're outta time
Watching it slip under our feet
If we don't keep it alive (If we don't keep it alive)
What's left inside?

Oh, if you still wanted
All the things that we believed in (We believed in)
Before (Before)
It's all or nothing (Seize the moment)
Cause there's nothing left to lose
And we were meant for so much more

So get up and face your fears
Page after page, let's rewrite our history
They said we'd never beat the odds
So let's show them what we've got

It's not too late so keep your head up
We've been down this road before
I don't know what they think we're made of
We won't stop till we show them this is
War, did you forget about the dreams we wanted?
War, do you remember everything we started?

What do you stand for?
Don't take the path with the least scars (This is war)
Today we get what we came for (For, for, for, for)

This isn't what I wanted to be

So I'll take it all with no regrets
Bring me back

And I'll pick you up when you fall to the ground
(When you stumble you can take my hand)
Cause nothing's gonna bring us down, down, down
(You've gotta crawl before you stand, before you stand)

Oh, cause I can't stay here any longer
When my life's passing me by (Have we lost ourselves?)
With just one moment (One moment)
It could change our, our whole lives
We'll give up everything we have
For this last chance (Get on your feet, let's move)

The time is now to stand and fight
This is war; so choose your side

(Whoa, whoa) So here we stand against the odds
(Whoa, whoa) This is the calm, the calm before the storm

We won't stop until we show them this is
War, did you forget about the dreams we wanted?
War, do you remember everything we started?

What do you stand for?
Don't take the path with the least scars (This is war)
Today we get what we came for
8. Despicable You
Transparency behind those eyes
I see your twisted lies, can you feel the tension?
Oh, so high on your vanity, you lost all your humanity
When you sold me out and you let me down

You know I think I got you figured out
You look at people as obstacles to climb
They say girls like you are overrated
And I see this all the time (Don't think I didn't notice)
Can't you tell that they're laughing at you?
Do you even care?
Well if it wasn't for your body and your fake smile
Girl, you would never get anywhere

She can't break away from what she'll never be
So she'll run away but her demons consume her
They won't stop until she's sucking the life out of every victim
Chew 'em up and spit 'em out
She's dug her last grave with no means to break free
How can someone so shallow fall so fucking deep

You started a fire but you're afraid of the flames
You don't know the rules so you cheated the game
You're hypocritical, fucking despicable
And you are a walking contradiction
Act like a god but you reek of deception
You brought this on yourself

You think you've got it all (It all)
Your character is forged
But honey, you've got it all wrong
You're rotten to the core

I know she's gonna play the victim again
Just to see how far she can get
She'll put on her mask and reel 'em in close
But it's all mirrors and smoke (You're poisonous)
But now you don't have a friend in the world
Go on and take a bow (They're gonna give you a test)
And don't come crying to me girl
Your time's up, show's over now

I saw you infect them like a plague
Bring them up to tear them down and watch them suffocate
It's not over yet so you better think again
Here comes the storm, you better learn how to swim

You started a fire but you're afraid of the flames
You don't know the rules so you cheated the game
You're hypocritical, fucking despicable
And you are a walking contradiction
Act like a god but you reek of deception
You brought this on yourself

Someday you'll find yourself and wish you hadn't (Open your eyes)
The consequence of being hollow (So hollow)
And you tried to bring the wool down over my eyes (My eyes)
A betrayal that was hard to swallow (Take a bow)

Someday you'll find yourself and wish you hadn't
But I've already figured you out
Same old story, come on, lie to my face with a smile
And don't apologize
9. Heavy Lies The Crown
I'll walk on water and you'll say it's cause I can't swim
You never fail to judge but all you know is how to quit
Ten years of blood, sweat and tears
Success is never easy, you think it just appears?

"It's just another gimmick, manufactured image
So generic, it just fell out the sky
They must have gotten lucky", you pretend to know the story
We've heard it all before so let's see you fucking try
We've heard enough of this, we gave up our lives for this
You don't know the half of it, so keep talking, talking shit

Heads held high
We don't care what they say this is the time of our lives
Eyes open wide
We're running circles 'round the game as they're falling behind
So everybody sing it with me
And don't stop till your lungs give out
Everybody sing it with me
Heavy is the head that wears the crown

Let me shed some light on the hate that you're spreading
You think you're doing damage; that's the point you're not getting
So let your insecurities belittle what is mine
Cause at the end of the day, I'm the one with the mic

You're just another hater, condescending motivator
Someday it will come back and eat you alive
You know your words will shatter, cause you can't meet your standards
So just get back in line

So let's hear another line that's been played out
You're like a broken record (We've heard it all before)
And there's no way your words will ever bring us down
(We'll keep our heads held high)

Heads held high
We don't care what they say this is the time of our lives
Eyes open wide
We're running circles 'round the game as they're falling behind
So everybody sing it with me
And don't stop till your lungs give out
Everybody sing it with me
Heavy is the head that wears the crown

Let's debunk your fucking fiction
No one put a gun to your head and made you listen
Another point that you keep missing
Until you walk in these shoes, no one cares what you do
Haters, no one cares what you do
You didn't see all the times that we tried and fucking failed
Just to keep this spark of a dream alive

How can you say you see through our eyes
When you can't even see through your pride?
And if you think you know where we have been
You better think again
Cause you're only on the outside looking in
Yeah, yeah (We'll keep our heads held high)

Heads held high
We don't care what they say this is the time of our lives
Eyes open wide
We're running circles 'round the game as they're falling behind
So everybody sing it with me
And don't stop till your lungs give out
Everybody sing it with me
Heavy is the head that wears the crown

Haters, no one cares what you do
10. Broken
I wish that I could end this but I'm too afraid to try
Afraid to try, and I wanna scream

I feel it in my lungs, in every breath I take
In my bones, in my heart, with every smile I fake
The look of dead eyes, the fear, the lies and this disguise
And I feel it in my blood and it makes me numb

I wish that I could end this but I'm too afraid to try
And I don't know what to say to you if you wanted to know why
I wish that things were easier but the stars are not aligned
And my heart can't survive, the pain let's me know that I'm alive

Something surrounding me, pulled under and I can't breathe
Reflections lie to me, I see what they don't see
The look of dead eyes, the fear, the lies and this disguise
And I feel it drowning me and I wanna scream

I wish that I could end this but I'm too afraid to try
And I don't know what to say to you if you wanted to know why
I wish that things were easier but the stars are not aligned
And my heart can't survive, the pain let's me know that I'm alive

And I was broken
But now I'm standing on my own, a new moment to begin
The scars of our past don't have to hold us back
But I'm addicted to the way you make me feel and
I'll never understand, you'll never understand

(And I wanna scream)

I wish that I could end this but I'm too afraid to try
And I don't know what to say to you if you wanted to know why
I wish that I could hate you but I cannot live a lie
And my heart can't survive (My heart can't survive)

I wanted to stop breathing but I'm too afraid to die
And I don't know what to say to you if you wanted to know why
And now everyone is telling me that I lost my mind
And if I tried to get it back I'm scared of what I'd find

I am broken
