Spilled Ink Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level chelsea485
1. Spilled Ink
Go!

In a world where no one knows your name
Waiting for times to change
Knowing that you're not alone
You fight to find

We all start out as strangers
We are all connected
We try to reach out, but there's no one ever there
You try to find the meaning
Screaming out
But no one ever hears

We all start out as strangers
We are all connected
Searching deep within ourselves
You try to find the meaning
Of being connected
To someone else

It's hard to realize
That you are never alone
You must be blind if you cannot see
We are all connected

I can't seem to find a way
With time against me in every single day
I can't escape
I can't seem to find a way (a way)
With time against me in every single day
I can't escape

I like to think
That you can never hide
But always run from me
I'm a strong believer
In making change
But I pray that I'll stay the same
I like to think
That you can never hide
Because I will find you
I'm a strong believer (I'm a strong believer)
In making change (making change)
But I pray that I will
Stay the same

One thing I've learned
You're never too far away
From which brings me closer to you
To the rest of the world
We're all connected
We're all connected
We're all connected
To the rest of the world (to the rest of the world)
2. Djentle
I've been here for quite some time
It's so repetitive
I need something different
A change for good
Who needs rationality?
I need these dreams to turn to reality

There must be a way to escape from this place (to escape from this place)
Most of the time everything feels so fake to me

You wouldn't even notice if I walked away
When you can't even give me a reason to stay

I think it's time to escape
I think it's time to escape

And when you take control
No matter what, rely on yourself
I'd give anything to feel that way
To free myself, their hands are around my neck
Their hands are around my neck

Cut loose of their grip
Take in a deep breath
If anything it will get easier
Make a decision
Before this life feels like a prison

Did you ever have to make up your own mind?
For a sense of security
Carve out your own way
So you can leave that reckless life far behind
(Paving your own path)
Stay away, you will never get me (stay away)
Suddenly everything I do feels right
I'll take care of myself

I've wanted this for far to long
I never said that this would be easy
There is a process of moving forward
Don't waste this life and its meaning

I spend too much time with these thoughts in my head
(You're not alone) We're not alone
It's time to hide, somewhere you can't find me
These are my struggles, my pride, what defines me

Now I know this is my choice (my choice)
I have reasons of my own
To move on and make you proud
It's a shame because now I'm gone
Nothing you say will bring me back
I'm far gone (far gone)
With no light to guide my way

Did you ever have to make up your own mind?
For a sense of security
Carve out your own way so you can leave that reckless life far behind
(Paving your own path)
Stay away, you will never get me (stay away)
Suddenly everything I do feels right
I'll take care of myself

I'll take care of myself
I'll take care of myself (I'll take care of myself)
I'll take care of myself (I'll take care of myself)
You made me who I am
3. Origin
All that I did caused and set in motion
(Do I have time) Do I have time to make a difference?
Or are my choices set in stone
Awaiting the clockwork of seasons to take their place
And at the end of all stories, we will say...

I remember when all of this began so long ago
Your memory will live forever (with me) with me
No one is ever truly dead

Until the ripple they caused fades away
Until the clock they've wound winds down (winds down)
No one is ever truly dead
No one is ever truly dead

This was all just a story
A long tale overdue
This was all just a moment
Seize the day and make it yours
Before you're gone (before you're gone)
Before you're gone (before you're gone)

How I wish that I could say these words
But the answers are very clear
That in this amount of time on earth
All I can be
Is what I'm supposed to become
Who am I supposed to be?
You must find a way to prove you were here
You must prove you were even here

Take me back to that room, where nothing moved
That place I called a home (that place I called a home)
So long ago
I miss the sights
The sounds
The moments
God, I hope that place still exists
But I can't go back now

How I wish that I could say these words
But the answers are very clear
That in this amount of time on earth
All I can be
Is what I'm supposed to become
Who am I supposed to be?
You must find a way to prove you were here
You must prove you were even here

How I wish I could say these words
As I wake up
All I see is darkness
You can't escape this

With a life time that comes and goes (comes and goes)
This is the only life you'll ever know
This is the only life you'll ever know
So learn to live today before you're gone
So learn to live today before you're gone
4. Glaciers
I've lost the point of no return
And the gravity is going to hold us down

Fate has left us here
The journey we must take on our own
Where we go they cannot follow
And this guiding light will never go out
A faint melody is all I hear
This pathway should finally be clear

You're never far behind
But I push on
Falling victim to my own fears, my own hopes
You're never far behind
But I push on
Falling victim to my own fears, my own hopes

Let go
Let go of reality and become
Become the world that surrounds me
I am never awake, never awake
Merely alive in a collision of ideas
Let go
Let go of reality
I fear that no one sees the world like me
But that idea only brings me comfort
It feels better when I stand alone

In my sight is another world
Where the lives shared are barely visible
The facades of houses
Hold memories
I can't even fathom
The life I sacrificed

Let go
Let go of reality and become
Become the world that surrounds me
I am never awake, never awake
Merely alive in a collision of ideas
Let go
Let go of reality
I fear that no one sees the world like me
But that idea only brings me comfort
It feels better when I stand alone

And when the dust settles
Where will you stand?

I've lost the point of no return
I can't look back
I should be fine
I've had more chances than I deserved
Once in a lifetime has happened more than once

Distance shared between us
Has been extended over time and space
Stretching out beyond our grasp of who we are (who we are)
And what we have become
Letting go of reality
Letting go of reality
5. Bridges
I had mastered fate or so I believed
Fate smiled and declared, "No one masters me"
There's no way to tell which direction I'm going (which direction I'm going)
Sand has a way of leaving footprints engraved
When they wash away
I'll leave a trail behind and I'll find my way

And I know,
And I know that you are scared
More so than I wish it was easier for you
You didn't plan on this
It's not like we could have seen this coming
But I promise one day that it will all be OK (seen this coming)
I won't give up on you if it's the last thing I do

Find meaning behind this life
All this talk of incomplete bridges
Don't be scared of the future
Because your past will catch up
And break apart the foundations you laid (foundations you laid)
Don't regret your goals (don't regret your goals)
Don't let these feelings subside

And I know,
And I know that you are scared
More so than I wish it was easier, easier for you
You didn't plan on this
(Easier for you)
It's not like we could have seen this coming
But I promise one day that it will all be okay (seen this coming)
I won't give up on you if it's the last thing I do (last thing I do)
I won't give up on you (I won't give up on you)

Heart and pride
I won't fall if you stand by my side (stand by my side)
I heard this all before
But no words have ever been so true
Our lives collapse into chaos (chaos, chaos)
But it keeps us feeling alive
Finding new meaning behind this life
6. In Irons
7. Mountains
You put your hands on me, through empty bottles you speak
I won't forgive you
Time after time you let me down
Just a child with high expectations

You won't break me
No matter the circumstance I will rise
You mistake me
For all the pain you bear alone

Why are you so afraid to finally let me in?
Try to find emotion for me
You're always there but it's never enough
I'll never be the same again
I'm a victim of ignorance
You preyed on me when I was sick
And now the time has come to play my part
The way it's supposed to be

I won't be like you
Never could I turn my back on you
I'll take my pride, of course what's left
And break free while I can escape

Another day goes by
I'm going insane
In time I'll find a way for things to change
I find it tiring to hold it inside (inside)
I will survive

Why are you so afraid to finally let me in?
Try to find emotion for me
You're always there but it's never enough
I'll never be the same again
I'm a victim of ignorance
You preyed on me when I was sick
And now the time has come to play my part
The way it's supposed to be

You look at me through your eyes
And see a child with high expectations
But all I really want is for you to love me true

Turn the pages, still things are the same
I take your place in this never-ending cycle
I want to show you the light
I wish you never had this life
As blood runs through each others' skin
I'm always there but somehow I'm never seen
How about I take the lead
And we can finally have some peace

I want to see, to hear, to feel
What's on your mind
Every day and every night
I will learn from the cracks in your branches
So I can mend mine, so I can mend mine
8. Allergen
You're just a part of my society
Ignorance is always swift to speak
(And while) And while you're watching from a distance
You're losing grip of reality

Too many voices
Trying to find a way to clear your mind
Until I break away
Are you the only one
Who sits and stares until things go your way
When everything falls apart?

I can't keep doing this
Everything you say
Bringing down my good name
It's time for you go
Now sit back and enjoy the ride
There's not much you can say to change my mind

You ought to know
You ought to know that you've gone to far
There's no way for you to take this back, it's time
To make things right (to make things right)

You're like the rest of them
Never satisfied
Pushing and pulling till you get what you want from me

Tell me, why you deserve a second chance?
Too many voices
Trying to find a way to clear your mind (until I break away)
Are you the only one
Who sits and stares until things go your way
When everything falls apart?

You ought to know
You ought to know that you've gone to far
There's no way for you to take this back, it's time
To make things right (to make things right)

Look what you've done (look what you've done)
You've had such little faith in me
What have you done? (What have you done?)
I know what you are looking for

Was it everything that you thought that it would be?
Are those the words that you wanted to hear from me?
I can't remember the last time you were content with yourself
And honestly, I know what you're looking for
I have it all
You want it all
You can't keep expecting so much from me
This is what I've been trying to tell you
All right from the start

You ought to know
You ought to know that you've gone to far
There's no way for you to take this back, it's time
To make things right (to make things right)

You ought to know
That you have gone too far
You ought to know
It's time to make things right
9. Eclipse
It's time for you to learn
What is right and wrong
It's getting harder to fall asleep
I'm in trouble
I'm in this way too deep

I used to think I was the one with problems
But in reality I'm the one with knowledge

No excuses, I did this by choice
I never thought I'd see the day (I'd see the day)
I'm at a breaking point
What has become of me?

Now looking back you'll see nothing's changed (nothing has changed)
While gone I stayed the same
Far away they tried to pretend
That they could make me their own

Once I'm back you'll see that nothing's changed (nothing's changed)
And while I'm gone I'll be the same

You can't see it but I'm the victim
You wouldn't even notice if I was there
I've been set up, destined for defeat
There's something missing that makes me feel complete

I hear a voice inside my head
It won't stop calling out my name
I'm the voice of your existence (existence)
Don't be afraid
I'll guide your way

Now looking back you'll see nothing's changed (nothing has changed)
While gone I stayed the same
Far away they tried to pretend
That they could make me their own

Once I'm back you'll see that I'm the same
And while I'm gone (I'm gone)
I'm never far away
I know the end of my vision (I'm never far away)
Meets your horizon
I'm never far away
10. The Further
Where the future pours into the past by the pinch of now
There is a ticking, where the seconds fade away (fade away)

The sand in the hourglass will one day pour out
As if looking into a story
That was never mine to begin with

Will I ever be able to understand the weight on my shoulders?
A deathly silence from the other room
Amplified by the stillness
Where ghosts whose seconds tick away (tick away)
They tend to never leave

I was scared to see what I would be
If I looked in the mirror
But if the grip of time would just let me go
I will remember the person that I was meant to be

I watched the walls collapse
And let out all of their secrets
I never wanted to let you down
But I felt my morals slipping

As I left myself at the door, I never wanted to let you down
Disappointed (disappointed) at my hopes and expectations
Somehow I wanted more and now I stand (and now I stand)
Waving back at defeat as I stare in the face of victory
I know who I was meant to be

I was scared to see what I would be
If I looked in the mirror
But if the grip of time would just let me go
I will remember the person that I was meant to be

Now that I can see it's a whole new world (a whole new world)
It's hard to believe that it's been here before

There is a ticking where the seconds fade away
Regret nothing because those broken walls only make you who you are
You can always rebuild, rebuild, rebuild
You can always rebuild, rebuild, rebuild
You can always rebuild, rebuild, rebuild
Rebuild those broken walls
11. Undertow
I can finally admit
That I want to leave it all behind
Caught up in all of these lines
I'll do what's best for me

I'm disappointed in the way that it ends
I want this story to restart
We need a new course
We need the winds to change (we need the winds to change)
To reach what we think we truly deserve
Our compass leads us to our new world

I can't take these waves on my own
I can't take this on my own
I will never let this go
What have I done that's made it hard for you to see what I have become?
These questions seem to have no answers
I can't take these waves on my own
I can't take this on my own
I will never let this go
What have I done that's made it hard for you to see what I have become?
These questions seem to have no answers

These questions remain the same
Guiding me to sleepless strain
Tell me what I cannot see
Whatcha say that you see in me
(You took) You took (the very) the very best of me (best of me)
These questions remain the same
Guiding me to sleepless strain
Tell me what you cannot see
What it is you see in me

I can't take these waves on my own
I can't take this on my own
I will never let this go
What have I done that's made it hard for you to see what I have become?
These questions seem to have no answers

I can't take these waves on my own
I can't take this on my own
I will never let this go
I can't take these waves on my own
I can't take this on my own
