New Found Power Lyrics

(14)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Wake Up (4:29)
Our lives are entwined, can't escape
But you and I have never met face to face
Still I can't get away
Think that you can just step right in
Push me out and then fuck things all up again
It never seems to end

Do you think that you're better than me
You better wake up 'cause you know it's a lie
Do you think that you're better than me
You better wake up

Cling to skeletons, fearing change
Paralyzed thinking what the future will bring
Pure adrenaline, I tear in
Hatred is my fuel
Truth dissects you again
And you've run out of friends

Do you think that you're better than me
You better wake up 'cause you know it's a lie
Do you think that you're better than me
You better wake up

And now it's time, the countdown begins
Extracting the truth, what was from what is
And once and for all we lay it to rest
And never look back again

I can't believe all the things done to me
Sight unseen
You don't know one fucking thing but you
Judge me

Do you think that you're better than me
You better wake up 'cause you know it's a lie
Do you think that you're better than me
You better wake up
2. Breathing New Life (3:48)
Can you feel it building
Devastation is on the way
Feel the hair on the back of your neck
As the rush begins

You can't take it away
I earned this with sweat and blood
You can't take it away
Take what's mine

Breathing new life back into me
Challenging all the powers that be

Can you feel it slipping
As you lose your grip on me
Can you face that I won in the end
I can't keep from laughing

You can't take it away
I earned this with sweat and blood
You can't take it away
Take what's mine

Breathing new life back into me
Challenging all the powers that be
Breathing new life back into me
Challenging all the powers that be

Don't you see it coming
When you've caught on, it's too late
When it hits, don't forget who I am
Don't forget this face

You can't take it away
I earned this with sweat and blood
You can't take it away
Take what's mine

Breathing new life back into me
Challenging all the powers that be
Breathing new life back into me
Challenging all the powers that be
3. New Found Power (3:25)
Why have we waited so long
Suppressing the power inside
Tear away all that was wrong
Something too massive to hide

It's time to rip the chain from your neck
Let go the past as you purge
Free now from everything weighing you down
Open the floodgates and surge with
New found power

Cleansing yourself of the past
Learn from mistakes and move on
Conquering new ground at last
Unite and become twice as strong

It's time to rip the chain from your neck
Let go the past as you purge
Free now from everything weighing you down
Open the floodgates and surge with
New found power

Nothing ventured, nothing gained
Hope was all that kept me sane
Rise above and prove myself
I'll survive without your help
Shut you out, my strength comes from within

New found power
4. Pride (4:17)
I'm sickened
I know I've been betrayed
But I keep ignoring
The warning signs

You tell me
That I'm not beneath you
But you act above me
Knives in my spine

Now with all the money in the world
You can't buy my respect
Yeah, it's just a matter of pride
But that's all I've got left

I reach up
For your hand as you stand
Looking down on me but
You turn your back

Now with all the money in the world
You can't buy my respect
Yeah, it's just a matter of pride
But that's all I've got left
5. Fuck You (3:08)
Fuck you I'm through
I want nothing more from you
My sanity is wearing thin
I rate, I hate
You determined your own fate
Now everything is caving in

Fuck your power trip and
Fuck your attitude and
Fuck your bloated ego too
Fuck your history, your tragedy, your misery
But most of all...fuck you!

Fuck this, all of this
Bitch and moan and bleed and piss
Seconds away from goin' down
Go ahead and push me
Your fakery, your butchery
Is nothing compared to my hate for you

Fuck your apathy and
Fuck your empathy and
Fuck your nihilism, too
Fuck your bitter pills, take 'em all, you never will
But most of all...fuck you!

Nothing changes, nothing fazes, nothing stays the same

Fuck your power trip and
Fuck your attitude and
Fuck your bloated ego too
Fuck your history, your tragedy, your misery
But most of all...motherfucker fuck you!
6. Reborn (4:02)
Identity murdered, malicious intent
I'm recreating myself at last
Rise up from destruction, start over again
Reborn, I'm now erasing the past

Did you think for a second
I wouldn't bother to question why
You always put me last
Can you look straight into my eyes
As you're excreting all your lies
Your time is coming fast

I'm reborn
I've seen the light

Everything now that would stand in my way
Is doomed to take the impact to come
You think you can stop me, you'd best think again
You want a piece of M? Come get some

Did you think for a second
I wouldn't bother to question why
You always put me last
Can you look straight into my eyes
As you're excreting all your lies
Your time is coming fast

I'm reborn
I've seen the light

So everything you're throwing at me
Has only helped me make up my mind
And all you do will amount to nothing
You can't effect me, don't even try
7. Explode (3:13)
I feel you stare
Watch me not care
Glare at the freak
You've no control
Feel your eyes probing me, judging me
Only makes me want to explode, just explode

You don't know me
But you fear me
Tainted with ink
Riddled with holes
Staring and pointing, stupidity
Only makes me want to explode, just explode

All that you see
Scars that made me
See in your eyes
All you despise
Judge me by what you see, leave me be
Get away I'm going to explode, just explode

Fear what you don't understand
It will always be
Fear what you don't understand
As it always was
Fear what you don't understand
It will always be
Fear what you don't understand
I just want to explode
8. Save Me (3:34)
Save me from myself I call out
But no one hears my plea
Burn my candle fast from both ends
Nightmares grow from dreams

You don't know, you can't see through my eyes
So you don't know me
You don't know what's going through my mind
But can you help me

Save me from myself if you ever really cared
Save me from myself, tell me you're not scared

Intensity that grows within me
Reflections of my pain
I'll create or I'll destroy
But either way it's always in my veins

You don't know, you can't see through my eyes
So you don't know me
You don't know what's going through my mind
But can you help me

Save me from myself if you ever really cared
Save me from myself, tell me you're not scared

Save me... from me...
9. Cold Blooded (4:57)
Spit in your face, another worthless liar
I know your kind
Save me the smile, you're just a cut-throat bastard
I read your mind
Nothing without the victim that you feed on
Everyone knows you're just a parasite
What can you do after you've killed it slowly
Where can you go after you bled it dry

For now I'll let you believe
I let you get to me
Aren't you in for a shock...
You stupid motherfucker
You'll get what you deserve
A victim of your own game
You're already dead to me
Your turn to get played

Now I'm cold blooded
I've got ice in my veins
Now I'm cold blooded
Just disengaged

Having control - the only validation
You constantly need
Power to you becomes intoxication
On which you feed
Spewing your lies and your manipulation
Playing with lives to you is just a game
Being around you makes me fear that you might
Get on my skin and then contaminate

For now I'll let you believe
I let you get to me
You don't even see it coming, do you?
You'll get what you deserve
A victim of your own game
You're already dead to me
Your turn to get played

Now I'm cold blooded
I've got ice in my veins
Now I'm cold blooded
Just disengaged

Cold blooded
Ice in my veins
10. Crawl (5:29)
Forged my strength out of determination
I've survived this long on will
Dropped so many times that I've lost count
Never stopped me once, never known anything else

Try and break me down I'll
Crawl back to my feet and stand
Crawl, try and break me you can't

Suffer, sacrifice, or walk away
Make your play and risk it all
New found power pumping through my veins
Based on brotherhood
Once it starts it can't be stopped

Try and break me down I'll
Crawl back to my feet and stand
Crawl, try and break me you can't
Pick my teeth back up and crawl

Sometimes it seemed like it just wasn't meant to be
Anger and sorrow were all that I would ever feel
Sometimes I'd dream the man that had it all was me
Then I'd awake each time to cold reality

But I can't wait for things to change
Complacency is not my way

Self-absorbed, I had lost my faith I was
Breaking down from your apathy, now it
Feeds my hatred for all you stand for and
I can't live like this one minute more, so
Just how much blood do you have to swallow?
Before can you lead, you must refuse to follow

Now I bite the hand that starves me
Don't look so surprised it's you that created me

Crawl back to my feet and stand
Crawl, try and break me you can't
Pick my teeth back up and ...
Crawl back to my feet and stand
Crawl, try and break me you can't
11. Blink of an Eye (4:18)
Seems like only yesterday the dream became so clear
All was possible and God it felt so near
So I suffered and I bled, I truly did believe
Years have come and gone, but just where has it brought me

In the blink of an eye
Seems like minutes as the years fly by
In the blink of an eye
Afraid to stop because I can't stop time

Strobing snapshots of my past become a blurring flash
Just one thing can make it all come flooding back

If I'd stopped just once to look back maybe I would see
Just how far I've come, but it took it's toll on my

In the blink of an eye
Seems like minutes as the years fly by
In the blink of an eye
Afraid to stop because I can't stop time

Blink of an eye

That's just how fast your life can change
In the blink of an eye, everything erased

In the blink of an eye
Seems like minutes as the years fly by
In the blink of an eye
Don't ever stop because you can't stop time
12. Blunt Force Trauma (4:56)
I never saw whatever it was
That came and hit me from behind
Then I awoke enraged and confused
How could I have been so blind

Life's escaping, don't pretend
Judgement comes, but who knows when

So when you least expect
That's when it takes effect
A tragic twist to alter fate
Instinct is to deny
Logic does not apply
In time we learn, but it's too late

Blunt force trauma to the head

Blazing through life at the speed of sound
Don't stop to look at the signs
Suddenly everything crashes around you
When we forget, life reminds

Clock is running, falling sand
Time is slipping through your hands

So when you least expect
That's when it takes effect
A tragic twist to alter fate
Instinct is to deny
Logic does not apply
In time we learn, but it's too late

Blunt force trauma to the head
It's too late

Blunt force trauma

So when you least expect
That's when it takes effect
A tragic twist to alter fate
Instinct is to deny
Logic does not apply
In time we learn, but it's too late

Blunt force trauma to the head
13. Moment of Truth (6:50)
There were times when I questioned my reasons
Thought I wouldn't last
Seemed the hand of God held my head
Underwater
Somehow I fought back

It's still not over yet
No, it won't let me quit

Found myself more than just once
Praying down on my knees
My search for answers only led to more questions
Sometimes for faith you've got to bleed

By now I've bled my share
Now it's my turn to redeem

When it comes my way, I won't be scared
I've been waiting all my life
Pain has prepared me for the moment of truth
And the true test of time

Give all you have because you believe
Sell your mortal soul
And if you're not a predator then, oh - you better pray
Bet it all now or fold

But there's still a danger there
Don't become one of them

When it comes my way, I won't be scared
I've been waiting all my life
Pain has prepared me for the moment of truth
And the true test of time

For all I've done - some good some bad
Don't hang me just yet
Judge me not on one thing I've done
See my whole life instead

When it comes my way, I won't be scared
I've been waiting all my life
Pain has prepared me for the moment of truth
And the true test of time
14. Soul Bleed (5:13)
Now that I'm all alone
Painfully aware
I'm starting to feel the cold
Knowing you're not there

Caught somewhere between my fears and dreams
And all I have are demons here for company

Come and look inside, hope you like what you see
And if you run and hide, you're scared of what is me
Bind my idle hands, they only claw at me
Drown in emptiness, my soul is left to bleed

Throwing a shadow on
Every thought I have
Knowing that something's gone
Echo's in my head

Caught somewhere between my fears and dreams
And all I have are demons here for company

Come and look inside, hope you like what you see
(you like what you see?)
And if you run and hide, you're scared of what is me
(scared of what is me)
Bind my idle hands, they only claw at me
(oh, yeah)
Drown in emptiness, my soul is left to bleed
