Submitted by level 퀴트린
1. Beauty and the Freak (3:32)
I'm letting go
One thing is for certain I'm treading paths I've walked before
I've reconsidered and I'm contemplating letting go
I watched resentment steal into your face like a thief (a thief)
And the more you pull the more I push you away from me
And I'm letting go
I'm trying
You're beautiful she said to me
Then why do I feel so ugly?
The freak inside (freak inside) I still believe (still believe)
It must go more than skin deep
Domination. Segregation. Infiltration.
This life is mine and I'll be dead before you take it
I try to fly but an invisible blade cuts me
I hear that sound just before I hit the ground
You're beautiful she said to me
Then why do I feel so ugly?
The freak inside (freak inside) I still believe (still believe)
It must go more than skin deep
You're beautiful she said to me
Then why do I feel so ugly?
I know it's hard I admit I'm scared
this just how it has to be (has to be)
The hurt will fade your heart remade
Eventually we'll regret these days
You're no stranger but you're strange to me (these days)
Now when loneliness won't leave you alone (these days)
You're beautiful she said to me
Then why do I feel so ugly?
You're beautiful she said to me
Then why do I feel so ugly?
The freak inside (freak inside) I still believe (still believe)
It must go more than skin deep
Skin deep
Skin deep
Skin deep
My dead sense can't tell right from wrong
That's why my words only inflicted pain on you
I've picked the lock of a door I never wanted to go through
I'm turning back
I'm letting go
2. Revolution, Baby (3:25)
Get the fuck up and do something
Inspire the crowd to set it off and make a difference
Lock and load
And then I tattoo on my skin the names and faces I have seen.
So when I die there'll be evidence left of my life

Have you ever thought that

Maybe there's nothing wrong with you
And it's the world that's dirty, scared and lonely
Baby, I'm gonna show you what to do
You have to shock the system
Revolution

Always count on getting nothing
When you are on your own
But when we walk these streets together
They're paved with gold
And so I take the ink again and add your legend to my list
'cause when I die I want you to be on me

With this energy take the system down

Maybe there's nothing wrong with you
And it's the world that's dirty, scared and lonely
Baby, I'm gonna show you what to do
You have to shock the system
Revolution

And it all came to life when I thought outside the lines
And it all came to life when I thought outside the lines
And it all came to life

Maybe there's nothing wrong with you
And it's the world that's dirty, scared and lonely
Maybe there's nothing wrong with you
And it's the world that's dirty, scared and lonely
Baby, I'm gonna show you what to do
You have to shock the system
Revolution

Revolution [x4] [Rich screams in background]

It's getting harder to stand and getting further to fall
But if you take my hand we can tear down the walls
It's getting harder to stand and getting further to fall
But if you take my hand we can take on the world
3. Turn It Up (3:38)
Turning up like you always do.
Head to toe, covered in tattoos.
Sooner or later, you're gonna come loose.
What the fuck you gonna do?

Your body's swaying from side to side.
I wanna catch you when you fall,
But then you'll learn nothing at all.
Still I'm ready to run,
But you're so damn drunk
An atomic bomb couldn't wake up you.

What's that you hear, bass and lights from the club?
I don't think so.
I'm by your side and all I can hear.
Is ambulance siren cries, screaming
"Help me, help me, help me, help me"

The way that she looks.

[Chorus:]
Turning it up like you always do.
Head to toe, covered in tattoos.
Sooner or later, you're gonna come loose.
What the fuck you gonna do?
Turning up like you always do.
Head to toe, covered in tattoos.
Broken nails and a bleeding soul
Suck it up, you fucked it up.

The way she walks,
The way she talks,
We all know
The girl is halfway dead.
Dead.
Dead.

You're selling your soul for whiskey and coke.
And you're a suicide for tequila and lime.
And I gotta admit, when I first saw you.
Hit the dancefloor with your grind,
You sent me outta my mind.

But after watching you crawl in the door
That it is getting old and sold and I told
I don't know
But you're screaming, "I don't care! I don't care!"
Care.
Care.
Care.

The way that she looks.

[Chorus:]
Turning it up like you always do.
Head to toe, covered in tattoos.
Sooner or later, you're gonna come loose.
What the fuck you gonna do?
Turning up like you always do.
Head to toe, covered in tattoos.
Broken nails and a bleeding soul
Suck it up, you fucked it up.

Turning it up like you always do.
Head to toe, covered in tattoos.
Sooner or later, you're gonna come loose.
What the fuck you gonna do?
Turning up like you always do.
Head to toe, covered in tattoos.
Broken nails and a bleeding soul
Suck it up, you fucked it up.

(The way she walks,
The way she talks,
We all know
The girl is halfway dead.
The way she died,
The way she said,
We all know
The girl is halfway dead.)

Dead.
Dead.
Halfway dead.
Dead.
Dead.
Halfway dead.

When I see you lately,
I'm wondering on
White roses, caskets,
Your name on a stone.

Turning it up like you always do.
Head to toe, covered in tattoos.

[Chorus:]
Turning it up like you always do.
Head to toe, covered in tattoos.
Sooner or later, you're gonna come loose.
What the fuck you gonna do?
Turning up like you always do.
Head to toe, covered in tattoos.
Broken nails and a bleeding soul
Suck it up, you fucked it up.

Turning it up like you always do.
Head to toe, covered in tattoos.
Sooner or later, you're gonna come loose.
What the fuck you gonna do?
Turning up like you always do.
Head to toe, covered in tattoos.
Broken nails and a bleeding soul
Suck it up, you fucked it up.

(The way she walks,
The way she talks,
We all know
The girl is halfway dead.
The way she died,
The way she said,
We all know
The girl is halfway dead.)
4. My Own Life (3:12)
My father said to load that gun,
And keep the devil from the door,
Don't be tempted by the words he says,

I found a way to break the cycle,
Initiated something vital,
But to the ocean it was only rain.

So rain on me (rain on me)
So rain on me (rain on me)

[Chorus:]
Bombs are going off in my mind,
To ban the places I can hide,
Quicker now, I better think twice,
Start a new life.
Fate is kicking down my door,
But I don't live there anymore,
Destiny, it needs your advice.
I'm starting a new life.

What you gonna do when you've taken my breath away,
Maybe dying young isn't all it's meant to be,
Until then I could just rewind,
My life back to the beginning,
Pause, press forward, that's too easy,
Push stop the moment I can see the smoke.

Then rain on me (rain on me)
Then rain on me (rain on me)

[Chorus:]
Bombs are going off in my mind,
To ban the places I can hide,
Quicker now, I better think twice,
Start a new life.
Fate is kicking down my door,
But I don't live there anymore,
Destiny, it needs your advice.
I'm starting a new life.

My own life, it's my own life

[Altered chorus:]
Bombs are going off in my mind,
Take a deep look in my eyes,
What do you see, do I seem fine?
I'll start anew.
Fate is knocking at the door,
But I don't live there anymore.
Destiny, it needs some advice,
What shall I do?

I'm starting a new life,

[Chorus:]
Bombs are going off in my mind,
To ban the places I can hide,
Quickly now, I better think twice,
Start a new life
Fate is kicking down my door,
But I don't live there anymore.
Destiny, it took your advice.
I've started the new life.

It's my own life, it's my own life
I've started the new life
It's my own life, It's my own life
I've started the new life.
5. Burn This City (3:32)
Are we alive?
Because I heard a rumour
That the day we died was yesterday
So are we rotting now?
Can't find our graves?

Well they created a lie
Built out of structure and routine by robots
But this night we're taking the virus to them

[Chorus:]
BURN THIS CITY TO LET THEM KNOW WE'RE HERE
BURN THIS CITY TO REINSTALL THE FEAR
HOW CAN I SLEEP WHEN YOU PULL FOCUS
RIGHT BEFORE MY EYES
STILL THEY FIND ANOTHER WAY TO PUT A DIFFERENT GUN TO OUR HEADS
AND SO I TAKE A BREATH THERE'S PLENTY TIME TO SLEEP WHEN I'M DEAD
IS THIS THE ONLY WAY ITS EVER GONNA BE?
RIGHT BEFORE MY EYES

...Don't wanna think about the end
When this ride is just getting started
Roads uncharted
Or is this end of the line (line)?
I'm not giving lessons
Lessons how stars are forged
I just keep my finger on the trigger
And blow 'em away one by one
So can we all scream (yeah)?
Loud enough to awaken
The zombies of society
Who control these times

[Chorus]

And I still want to see the light (see the light)
Shining in front of my eyes

Running's easy
Where will we go - Who knows?
Don't look back as long as I've got you we'll make it

[Chorus]
6. Black and Blue (3:29)
Why did you want me to be there yesterday?
You changed my destiny
Controlled by the moon.
"If I would have known, if I would have been there for you my baby, for you."
(I tried to change my mind
But you're a drug being injected into the back on my head
You are my destiny what part of that don't you understand)

[Chorus:]
Black and blue, I bled for you.
Still dare to tell me what to do.
Synthetic angel with a human heart
You dragged me down for one last time,
I'll be yours and you'll be mine.
But after sunrise I'll turn to stone.

My proposition is unconditional and it ends tonight.
Need a body to exploit.
"I try to keep my cool but your frozen skin is magnetic to me, hold on."

[Chorus]

(Our two hearts know where it's raining sulphur clouds
The gates are open wide it's too late for sacrifice
Checkmate, last call and we're going down)

[Chorus]

Yeah, yeah.

And now I'm caught in a web,
Visions in my head.
Truth is calling me, I'm searching for myself.
And now I'm caught in a web,
Visions in my head.
Truth is calling me, I'm searching for myself.
Let go.

[Chorus x2]
7. Miles Apart (3:39)
An honest crescendo
Of fireworks filled your eyes rise like stars
That moment I knew that I would bind myself to you
The fallen, the demons, they can't wait to deny the truth
But they'll have to wait, have patience
'cause right now I am loving you

[Chorus:]
There is nothing that they can do.
To stop me needing and yearning you.
Even if we're a million miles apart,
We're still joined right at the heart.

Heart.

Your memory, it warms my soul.
So when I die, I won't be cold.
But here on earth, I got something to prove,
And while I'm alive I've got nothing to lose
So I take my chance and I make my move.
I fought my evils, scaled the walls
And backed the right horse, broke the rules.
I'm risking everything I've got
Just to get a shot with you.

[Chorus x2]

Heart.

I died inside when you were taken,
And then I died some more.
The daylight hurts my eyes
'Cause I'm a stranger to the sun.
Some parts of me are gone forever,
But the rest of me lives on.

[Chorus x2]

Heart, heart.
Heart, heart.
Heart, heart.
Heart, heart.
8. Plans Are For People (4:11)
It's not enough to be yourself,
You have to be your best self (self)
From my point of view there is no kingdom,
There's no kingdom in the clouds, no
You keep preaching the words you receive,
Receive from the maker (what if, what if)
But what if God is not the sender
What if God is not the sender?

Don't want to wake what you put to sleep
Because it keeps this from imploding.
The same old story, same old story
(No way to find me)
Every time that you want me.

[Chorus:]
I try not to make plans,
Plans are for people
In control of their own life.
Night is good for the hunter,
Bad for the hunted.
See the world for what it is.

Every day I searched your face for clues,
Looking for a window to strike at your mind
And when your ships are down
I'll harbour the feeling
I doubt your heart is any stronger

Don't want to wake what you put to sleep
Because it keeps this from imploding.
The same old story, same old story
No way to find me
Every time that you want me.

[Chorus:]
I try not to make plans,
Plans are for people
In control of their own life.
Night is good for the hunter,
Bad for the hunted.
See the world for what it is.

As I walk the surface of the sun,
(Only thing that)
It makes me feel alive,
Alive again.

[Chorus x2:]
I try not to make plans,
Plans are for people
In control of their own life.
Night is good for the hunter,
Bad for the hunted.
See the world for what it is.
9. Leave Me Alone (3:56)
My dreams are always the same.
(This movie of you)
It flickers in my brain
Over and over again.
(Now)

What is it I got
That triggers you to follow me day and night?
I can smell your scent all around.

I don't know what your demons are telling you,
But it ain't me you're looking for.

[Chorus:]
Why,
(Why!)
Why won't you leave me alone?
It drives me insane!
And why (why!)
Why won't you just let me go?
Stay out of my way.

I slept with the enemy.
They stole all that I've got.
Framed, my lust has been out of control.

I don't know what your demons are telling you,
But it ain't me you're looking for.

[Chorus]

And I'm locked in the yesterdays
Of your cellular memories.
But I'm cutting you out of the film to the floor.
Let the light in as I walk out the door
And you're gone.

[Chorus]

Stay out of my way.
10. Break of Day (3:20)
The earth is large
Large enough that you think you can hide from anything
From fate, from God, from pain
As long as you get far enough away
So you run (run) to the edge of the earth
Where all is safe again and just for a moment
You think you managed to escape
You could never be more wrong

[Chorus:]
Sometimes when I look in the mirror
I'm not sure it's me looking back from the other side
What if the nightmares give chase?
And they track me down even after the break of day

We think we are
We are agents of our own destiny
In charge of when we rise or fall
Capable of determining our own fate
Couldn't be, no we couldn't be more wrong
Cause you don't choose your destiny
Your destiny it chooses you
You cannot escape your fate

[Chorus:]
Sometimes when I look in the mirror
I'm not sure it's me looking back from the other side
What if the nightmares give chase?
And they track me down even after the break of day

First you show me
You show me that I cannot be harmed
By any weapon or blade they try to use on me
Then you cut me
You cut me deeper than
Than any
You cut me deeper than any sword could have done

[Chorus:]
Sometimes when I look in the mirror
I'm not sure it's me looking back from the other side
What if the nightmares give chase?
And they track me down even after the break of day

I turn deep into my soul to find the strength to stand against my fears
There's nothing imprisoned in the looking glass
I learnt to understand the silver only echoes what I think into it
Don't need to wait for the break of day
11. We Rule the Night (4:00)
My home is no longer a place where refuge can be found
"You dug far too deep..."
What I stumbled upon
"Was not for your eyes to see"
I'm always on the run 'cause something's after me
Cold shivers working its way down my very spine
I'm far away from home
I'm far from all I know
"You can't run from me"
My heart gives me away
And there's no place left to hide
"You will accept Caine's curse"
Pay the price for your ignorance
Discard all your mortal feelings

[Chorus:]
Until the end of time we are slaves to the dark
He pulled me down, pulled me down to this world
We emerge from the shadows and we rule the night
We rule the night, rule the night together

My body degrades organs failing
Your blood runs like liquid fire in my veins
"The masquerade unveils, share my burden child"
Kill them all and then let god separate them
Their pain shall be legendary

[Chorus:]
Until the end of time we are slaves to the dark
He pulled me down, pulled me down to this world
We emerge from the shadows and we rule the night
We rule the night, rule the night together

As my body dies tonight
I see clearly who pulls the strings
We broke our oath
Used the forgotten keys of this world just too
Eclipse the sun for you
Black out the sun
We buried it as deep as we could
It wasn't deep enough
We buried it as deep as we could
But it wasn't deep enough

[Chorus:]
Until the end of time we are slaves to the dark
He pulled me down, pulled me down to this world
We emerge from the shadows and we rule the night
We rule the night, rule the night together

Until the end of time we are slaves to the dark
He pulled me down, pulled me down to this world
We emerge from the shadows and we rule the night
We rule the night, rule the night together

We rule the night, We rule the night
