Impermanent Resonance Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level Rin
1. Agony (4:23)
One voice she hears
Taking control, leaving it's mark... Agony
Can't make her see it my way
Restrict, you binge
Lunatic fringe struggles within... Agony
Losing her identity

Helpless feeling, It's eating you
Taking it's toll

You cannot give up again
Crack the door and he'll let himself in
Rotten to the core, that grin
Lose a little more, patience wearing thin

When nothing else matters
Tattered, shattered
Abused, you are battered
Scattered, shattered
Know it's all messed up
You cannot give up

Wasting away, skin bruised and gray
Falling apart... Agony
Shut down more than yesterday
The perfect you
Now you're see through
It's killing you... Agony
No grasp of reality

Helpless feeling, It's eating you
Taking it's toll

You cannot give up again
Crack the door and he'll let himself in
Rotten to the core, that grin
Lose a little more, patience wearing thin

When nothing else matters
Tattered, shattered
Abused, you are battered
Scattered, shattered
Know it's all messed up
You cannot give up

You cannot give up again
Crack the door and he'll let himself in
Rotten to the core, that grin
Lose a little more, patience wearing thin

When nothing else matters
Tattered, shattered
Abused, you are battered
Scattered, shattered
Know it's all messed up
You cannot give up
2. Undertow (4:02)
Tha waves crash over me
And there's no time to breathe
I think I might be in too deep

I don't know up from down
can't stop from spinnin' round
No hope of laning on my feet

Nowhere to go, nowhere to go
Nowhere to go, I'm stuck inside a nightmare

When I'm scared an silently scream "no"
My heart's beating fast but I'm moving slow
Before I start sinking below
You grab on and never let me go
Don't let me go, don't let me go
When I need you the most
You pull me out of the undertow

But nine times out of ten
I'll just fall in again
And one would think that I would learn

After all this time now

Repeat the same mistakes
Get trapped under the breaks
And playin' with fire just gets me
Gets me, gets me burned

Nowhere to go, nowhere to go
Nowhere to go, I'm stuck inside a nightmare

When I'm scared an silently scream "no"
My heart's beating fast but I'm moving slow
Before I start sinking below
You grab on and never let me go
Don't let me go, don't let me go
When I need you the most
You pull me out of the undertow

Face down in the sand
Think I understand now
Seen my stubborn ways
And it's time I give a damn

When I'm scared an silently scream "no"
My heart's beating fast but I'm moving slow
Before I start sinking below
You grab on and never let me go
Don't let me go
Don't let me go
When I need you the most
You pull me out of the undertow
3. Slight Of Hand (5:21)
Turned a page, in my life
Thought it through, wasn't easy to do
Weighed the risks, slight of hand
If I miss, then life's not worth a damn

Too dark to see, too light, to feel
One's fate, is sealed

You're nothing but a liar
Don't try and change me
Waste of time
You'll never convince me
I'll walk away a better man
From something you don't understand

Don't try to change me
Waste my time
You'll never convince me
I'll walk away it's who I am
I don't expect you'd understand

On the list I've been made
A high risk, should have taken the fall
Odds against, won't survive
No defense, end this once and for all

Too dark to see, too light, to feel
One's fate, is sealed

You're nothing but a liar
Don't try and change me
Waste of time
You'll never convince me
I'll walk away a better man
From something you don't understand

Don't try to change me
Waste my time
You'll never convince me
I'll walk away it's who I am
I don't expect you'd understand

Let them try, all they want
Come what may, I am through
With lies, and their ways
Not the first, who has tried
Nor the last they will betray

You're nothing but a liar
Don't try and change me
Waste of time
You'll never convince me
I'll walk away a better man
From something you don't understand

Don't try to change me
Waste my time
You'll never convince me
I'll walk away it's who I am
I don't expect you'd understand

You're nothing but a liar
Don't try and change me
Waste of time
You'll never convince me
I'll walk away a better man
From something you don't understand

Don't try to change me
Waste my time
You'll never convince me
I'll walk away it's who I am
I don't expect you'd understand
4. Back On The Ground (4:05)
You lost in outer space
And I don't mean to burst your balloon
Put yourself in my place
While you orbit around the moon

You know I've tried my best
You never gave me the time of day
And now you're out of breath
And heading 'cross the Milky Way

Gotta get your feet back on the ground
Shake off the stardust
Gotta get your feet back on the ground
Just not on Venus
Don't make it any worse
Just throw it in reverse
Come on, come on
Come on down to earth
Gotta get your feet back on the ground
Back on the ground
Back on the ground

Riding a solar wind
As you weave through Saturn's rings
You dig your heels in
But that's not gonna solve a thing

You know I've tried my best
You never gave me the time of day
And now you're out of breath
And heading 'cross the Milky Way

Gotta get your feet back on the ground
Shake off the stardust
Gotta get your feet back on the ground
Just not on Venus
Don't make it any worse
Just throw it in reverse
Come on, come on
Come on down to earth
Gotta get your feet back on the ground
Back on the ground
Back on the ground

No tractor beam to pull you here
And breaking through the atmosphere
The vacant space between your ears doesn't get it, doesn't get it

You know I've tried my best
You never gave me the time of day

Gotta get your feet back on the ground
Shake off the stardust
Gotta get your feet back on the ground
Just not on Venus
Don't make it any worse
Just throw it in reverse
Come on, come on
Come on down to earth
Gotta get your feet back on the ground
Back on the ground
Back on the ground

Gotta get your feet back on the ground
Shake off the stardust
Gotta get your feet back on the ground
Just not on Venus
Don't make it any worse
Just throw it in reverse
Come on, come on
Come on down to earth
Gotta get your feet back on the ground
Back on the ground
Back on the ground
5. I Got You (3:46)
Just me myself an I
I just don't het it right
No matter what I try

And I just want to run
From what's about to come
I can't keep hope alive

When I veer so far off the course
When I'm stuck and can't take anymore

It's easy to forget
When I'm scared half to death
You never left my side

I don't need stars to wish upon
I don't need some magician with a magic wand
That could wave just to make me strong
Cause I got you

I don't need stars to wish upon
I don't need some magician with a magic wand
That could wave just to make me strong
Cause I got you

When down and out of luck
And things just don;t add up
When I just want to shout

And wrong just feels so right
Not always black or white
Can't figure this thing out

When I veer so far off of the course
When I'm stuck and can't take anymore

It's easy to forget
When I'm confused at best
You rid me of my doubts

I don't need stars to wish upon
I don't need some magician with a magic wand
That could wave just to make me strong
Cause I got you

I don't need stars to wish upon
I don't need some magician with a magic wand
That could wave just to make me strong
Cause I got you

When I veer so far off of the course
When I'm stuck and can't take anymore

It's easy to forget
When I'm confused at best
You rid me of my doubts

I don't need stars to wish upon
I don't need some magician with a magic wand
That could wave just to make me strong
Cause I got you

I don't need stars to wish upon
I don't need some magician with a magic wand
That could wave just to make me strong
Cause I got you
6. Holding On (4:53)
Sitting here, silently
As you tear me down
With your words all night

What went wrong
You're not you
And it's scaring me
Am I hearing you right

Like a house of
Cards in the wind
One big gust and
We could cave in
I don't want us
Haunted by what might have been

So I'm holding on
Holding on, holding on
I just don't want to let go
I'm holding on, holding on, holding on
Cause deep down I already know
We're close
And there's no turning back once
We're down that road
I'm holding on, holding on
I'm holding on to you

Three a.m., half asleep
On a beat up couch
Praying that we'll pull through
If I could I'd go back
And fix my mistakes
All the things I can't undo

Like a house of
Cards in the wind
One big gust and
We could cave in
I don't want us
Haunted by what might have been

Stop placing the blame because
Neither of us are perfect
It's not complicated
So don't analyze it to death

So I'm holding on
Holding on, holding on
I just don't want to let go
I'm holding on, holding on, holding on
Cause deep down I already know
We're close
And there's no turning back once
We're down that road
I'm holding on, holding on
I'm holding on to you
7. Lost In The Fire (3:52)
Here we go again
A night filled with everything but sleep
Trying to catch up to you
Inside of this maze of one-way streets

Every single turn, seems our story burns
But I won't accept defeat

The flames might be growing high
But I'm gonna stay and fight
I'm not gonna run
Bring on and let's see the smoke rise
We're not getting lost in the fire

Guilt will fuel the pain
And I won't get caught up in regrets
Born, just let it all burn
We'll get out alive with one last breath

Let the battle rage, I am not afraid
And I won't accept defeat

The flames might be growing high
But I'm gonna stay and fight
I'm not gonna run
Bring on and let's see the smoke rise
We're not getting lost in the fire

By the skin of our teeth
We'll survive in one piece
If you hold on tight
We can get through this
If you'll believe

The flames might be growing high
But I'm gonna stay and fight
I'm not gonna run
Bring on and let's see the smoke rise
We're not getting lost in the fire

But I'm gonna stay and fight
I'm not gonna run
Bring on and let's see the smoke rise
We're not getting lost in the fire
8. Letting Go (4:17)
It's the same, all you see
Nothing's new, time to aim
Smash the mold, break right through

Right now you can't get by
And even if you try
You know that deep inside
It's killing... you (it's killing... me)
It's killing... you (it's killing... me)
It's killing... you

Letting go
What's defining me, letting go
I can't make them believe or reason
I can tell by your reaction
You don't have my back
I'm letting go, all that I am

Know it fits, real assured
It's enough, you admit
Looking back, was messed up

What has become om me
I'll take that chance, break free
There's nothing here for me
Stuck in a rut, I'm feeling stuck
I'm feeling stuck

Letting go, what's defining me, letting go
I can't make them believe, or reason
I can tell by their reaction
They don't have my back
I'm letting go, all that I am

I will survive with or wothout you
My head held high, with or without you

Letting go, what's defining me, letting go
I can't make them believe, or reason
I can tell by their reaction
They don't have my back

I'm letting go, all that I am
Letting go, what's defining me, letting go
I can't make them believe, or reason
I can tell by their reaction
They don't have my back
9. Destined To Burn (4:00)
You've been taken
From all that
You've ever know
There's no question
You're already on your own
What's going on here
What have we done
Someting's wrong
This can't be right
Coffles and strangers
Pushing further
Beaten well into the night

We cannot alter or change
Gainst our will held in chains
Difference colour of skin
Is my sin

What gives them the right to
Take away
All I could've loved til my
Dying day
Is this bridge really destined to burn

Pale skinned serpent
There's no conscience eating you
My sole purpose
What God has done onto you

What if the tables were reversed
With all your rights taken away
Suddenly perverse
It's a nightmare
No one's waking you today

We cannot alter or change
Gainst our will held in chains
Difference colour of skin
Is my sin

What gives them the right to
Take away
All I could've loved til my
Dying day
Is this bridge really destined to burn

Shrouded in fear
Morales reversed now
Battered til the core to one's soul
Lighter a shade
You steal then you break
Even one's own faith

We cannot alter or change
Gainst our will held in chains
Difference colour of skin
Is my sin

What gives them the right to
Take away
All I could've loved til my
Dying day
Is this bridge really destined to burn
10. Say You're Still Mine (3:32)
Looking away, don't wanna see you crying
Cause I can feel it, there's no escape
All of the lies are there

If I could go back
I would turn back the time
But all I can say, I'll do what it takes from now

Say you're mine, that we're not broken in two
Say you're still mine, say it's me and you

I never thought
That I'd be so close to sinking
It hurts to look in your eyes
It cuts like a knife

I know I've gone too far, afraid I broke your heart
But you're all that I want
You're all that I need to go on

Say you're mine, that we're not broken in two
Say you're still mine, say it's me and you

Cause without you, I'm dying, I'm dying
I won't give up trying, just say you're mine
Say it's me and you

Say you're mine, that we're not broken in two
Say you're still mine, say it's me and you

Say you're mine, that we're not broken in two
Say you're still mine, say it's me and you
11. Amnesia (3:43)
Your cold voice, locks me up
Like a prison cell, desolate
And devoid of light

One day I will break free
Like a convict would
Scale a wall in the dead of night
That's right

Cause I've been trying to forget you
Anyway, anyhow
I never wanted some amnesia more than I do now
So I can erease, the memories of
A love that was never true
So I could forget you

You're a scene, in my head
That's been on repeat
I need a way to turn it off

One day I'll close my eyes
And you won't be there because
I will find a way to make it stop

Cause I've been trying to forget you
Anyway, anyhow
I never wanted some amnesia more than I do now
So I can erease, the memories of
A love that was never true
So I could forget you

Nothing will be like it was before
I'm not gonmna need you anymore
Done going through the revolving door
The revolving door

Cause I've been trying to forget you
Anyway, anyhow
I never wanted some amnesia more than I do now
So I can erease, the memories of
A love that was never true
So I could forget you

Cause I've been trying to forget you
Anyway, anyhow
I never wanted some amnesia more than I do now
So I can erease, the memories of
A love that was never true
So I could forget you
12. I Will Not Break (3:52)
Tightening it's grip on me
My moral compass spinning
Draining my live empty
Give me something to believe in

Wounded up , I'm way too thight
Fear tearing, wearing me thin
And knowing it ain't right
Give me something to believe in

Wanna move on, gotta face the music
There's only one way out
Tired of stumbling
Searching endlessly
And giving in to more than doubt

Let them take, all that they can
Each one of them, I will not bend
I ain't broke, they can't break me
As I am, not one of them
These so called friends, they're a joke

Headstrong your apathy
Neurotic and quite nervous
Obtuse propensity
Still convinced it serves your purpose

Lacking the sense to care
Degrading and puberscent
Discretion worse for wear
Is this something to believe in

Wanna move on, gotta face the music
There's only one way out
Tired of stumbling
Searching endlessly
And giving in to more than doubt

Let them take, all that they can
Each one of them, I will not bend
I ain't broke, they can't break me
As I am, not one of them
These so called friends, they're a joke

Know I have to walk
Have to walk away
Never seemed to fit most of the time
I'll be better off
Better off this way
And taking back what's mine

Wanna move on, gotta face the music
There's only one way out
Tired of stumbling
Searching endlessly
And giving in to more than doubt

Let them take, all that they can
Each one of them, I will not bend
I ain't broke, they can't break me
As I am, not one of them
These so called friends, they're a joke
