The 8th Sin Lyrics

Submitted by level 이준기
1. Call Out to the World (3:48)
I’ve rushed a million miles, haven’t moved at all
Just like the rats, I will keep on going
I’ve severed all my ties, set up for my fall
And just like that, I’m back at square one

Take me, somewhere
Wake me from this nightmare
Hear me, call out to the world

Someone, somewhere
Save me if I fall, you’ll be my savior
Lead the way; I call out to the world

All these countless bugs, crawling in my skin
I’m losing hope, and I’m, going nowhere
I’ve heard a million lies; my patience’s wearing thin
Up to my throat, and I’ve, heard it all before
2. Never Again (3:19)
Father, father, help me
I have sinned again
I just killed my last friend, can I go, can I go?
Father please relieve me
From this cross I bear
Couldn’t help myself, can’t we let it be?

No, never again
Never the same, my friend
I owe my lesson learned
Never again
I’ll never crash and burn again, again, again

Father, father hear me
I am on my knees
And our dirty secrets, I won’t tell, I won’t tell
I got the shortest straw here
You’re really nowhere near
To each his own, I’m better off alone

You’ll never, you’ll never learn
Just burn your bridges
I’ll never, I’ll never fall again
3. Not the Only (5:16)
Lying awake, alone in my bed
Voices are calling from inside my head
You’d be surprised, if you knew what they really said

From my dark rooms, I’ve shut the world out
I hide from the word can’t you see,
(it’s) too painful to talk about
I’m not what I used to be

Some things we leave alone
And wish that we’d never known
And sometimes we go too far
To hide our scars

I am not the only,
The only one who runs
No, I am not the only one
And when it’s down
To wire we all run
I’m not the only one

Break down the door;
Let in the light
I’m not the same anymore,
I have to come clean you know
These loose ends just got to go
4. Tell Me (4:13)
On this dead end road
You just sold yours souls
Buying in on what they told

High and mighty you
And your washed-out smiles
Tell me now, who’s fooling who?

Won’t be afraid no more
Here you found what you’re looking for
Settle for less, round up the clowns,
Obliterate this mess

Say your prayers, little one
And tell me, yeah tell me
After all is said and done
Tell me now, tell me now

I see right through you
How you cry on cue
That’s just all you’ve left to do
5. Not Like You (4:25)
It’s time to go,
We know there’s something calling
There’s nothing left out here at all, no…
We’re going crazy, it’s no illusion
We’ve had enough, so here we are

Who walks a thin line?
And who’s running on the edge?
This time we know it’s real
We’re falling face down, right into the ground

We are not like you, we are not the same
Not like the fools who follow and live their lives tomorrow
No, we are not like you, we are not the same
And so the story ends, we will never be like you

We’ve had enough, there must be something better
We turn our backs and walk away
We’re getting tired, of all you liars
We’ve heard it all too many times
6. Leave Me Alone (3:00)
Name the sin, count me in
Remind me that we’re dreaming
Bleed me dry, then hang me high
And call me the fool that I’ve been

Hate this state that I’m in

Cause we’re back
We’re back to the same old story
We’re back
So leave me alone, leave me alone again

Pour me out, run me down
And bore me till I’m done for
Wash me up, say no more
Leave me what’s left on the floor
7. Till I Come Alive (3:45)
Woke up today, no hope for tomorrow
What I thought would wash away
Needless to say, I’d kind of lost my way
So I’m right here, waiting

No more, no more
Won’t stop trying till I know I’m alive
No way, no way
No denying till I come alive

I turned on a dime,
And counted my blessings
So no more wasting time
Wiped out the slate,
And finally turned the page
And I’m right here, waiting

No, thought I still believe in nothing
Never crawling, never falling
I’ll never be like you
8. Strong Enough (3:13)
One bad seed in this filty gravel
One bad turn on this crocked road
Took me here, to this path I travel
Made me pay for what I owed

One black cloud on my silver lining
One bad turn that I can’t through
Someone else when I look in the mirror
Someone new in the tainted glass

No, I can’t stand it

Here I go, all alone
It’s time I made it on my own
They tried to make me, tried to brake me
But I’m strong enough

Tried to mold, shape and make me
On my back, like a bad tattoo
Here I am, still torn and ragged
Half a man, that’ll have to do
9. Me (4:13)
One, just one more drink
One last cigarette and I am on my way
Oh last night, it’s all a haze
Here I pave my way through filth and broken glass

Something is not the same
Something is different from before
Guess that I, guess I died inside

When there’s nothing more
When I’d tried it all
Come undone, when the odds were close to none
When the moment’s there
The divide I beware
Then it’s me, only me

Torn, still torn and bruised
But I’ve had my run, and I’ll, I’ll see it through
All for you, my sweet farewell
Oh, I can’t believe that I survived this hell
10. Pain and Pleasure (3:53)
Hear you call for me
It’s too late, can’t you see?
Couldn’t help, they spit on you, and called you fool
I believe it just slipped my mind
That I left you behind
I can’t help, you died that day that I betrayed

On and on…

Pain or pleasure
There is no distinction
You will see, someday
That pain is just one step away
Pain or pleasure
There is no distinction
Wish I could explain
That pleasure is equal to pain

I am over you
I keep telling myself
Couldn’t help,
They made you plead,
Made you bleed
I am sorry for what they did
Wasn’t me, god forbid
It hit me now, I’m just like them,
Or worse somehow

Now you’re gone…
