8:18 Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Gloom (3:45)
We wrote a song in the dark.
We drove a stake through her heart.
We ride the wind, we ride the waves.
We are aggression, we are pain.
We wrote a song in the dark.
We drove a stake through her heart.
He is the Lord, we are the listeners.
We will not die without a whisper.
I've seen what's fake, I've seen the distraction.
And like a wick there's no end to my burning.

Don't let the devil speak.

Don't let the demons take us.
Watch your back, look over your shoulder.
This war is meant to be fought.
I've lost my temper.
And yet there's forgiveness, there is purity.
Lay waste to golden crowns, find hope in clarity.

Let go.
We wrote a song in the dark.
We drove a stake through her heart.
Black heart, black song.
2. Rumors (3:02)
Rumors break down to a future of failure
Leaving me like this
Digging deep in the nothing that I have
Will I find encouragement hidden behind false ambition?
You were the one I never knew
You were the one to fix what's left here
I can't tell if I want this to last
Another day dies, trailing off
Hungry wolves haunting me
Gold fading on rooftops
Handsome wings left to fade
So it goes
The narrative is unending
Death is here, love is sending
You were the one I never knew
You were the one to fix what's left here
I can't tell if I want this to last
Another day dies, trailing off

(Rumors break)
Down to a future of failure
Leaving me like this
Digging deep in the nothing that I have
Will I find encouragement hidden behind false ambition?
Digging deep in the nothing what we have
3. First Sight (3:34)
Promise the lake
Don’t try, don’t be
Exist just like me
Promise shame
Every bit of everything is screaming so quietly

Is there anything else to say?
Are there any more words to sing?
Right after doubting all the things you claim
Right before giving all of it away

I thought I was ready to write
But you had me years ago
You had me at first sight
Even if it means nothing now

Promise these hands
No more empty praise and worship
Get lost at first sight
I’m driving my car away
I’m heading north

I thought I was ready to write
But you had me years ago
You had me at first sight
Even if it means nothing now

It hurts most in the mornings
And I wish I was in Chicago
Their statements are all contradictions
And I don’t think they can figure it out

All our damages transform us
We’re like our own historians
Is there anything else to say?
Are there anymore words to sing?

Every bit of everything is screaming
Promise the lake
Get lost at first sight
4. War (3:02)
5. 8:18 (2:13)
Streets dawn with empty light.
Bullets clutter the sidewalk.
The gun trembles in a young man's hand.
The mother visits a grave site.

They ask why we suffer.
Oh God please answer.
Rivers run, mountains peak.
We all remain scared.

I try to remember
You and me together.
Rivers run, mountains peak.
We all remain scared.

It's so abrupt,
The life designed for us.
Reach out, end fear.
Reach out, end fear.

They ask why we suffer.
Oh God please answer.
Rivers run, mountains peak.
We remain scared.

The city mourns another loss.
But we'll pray forever.
Rivers run, mountains peak.
I know You're there.
6. Sailor's Prayer (3:52)
Staying late for suffering.
Swaying back and forth like seas.
Staying late for suffering.
Swaying back and forth like seas.
I'm the one she'll never meet.

It's like the same thing,
You're just a little late.
I'm always hoping to maybe change.
It's like the same thing,
You're just a little late. I am away.

Staying late for misery.
I move back to you.
I move back to you.

The salt tastes just the same.
Thunder breaks overhead.
As I'm still away, we'll never meet.

It's like the same thing,
You're just a little late.
I'm always hoping to maybe change.
It's like the same thing,
You're just a little late. I am away.

It's like the same thing,
You're just a little late.
I'm always hoping to maybe change.
It's like the same thing,
You're just a little late. I am away.

Between sharks and kings,
It doesn't matter much to me.
And I'm still away.
I'm still away.

It's like the same thing,
You're just a little late.
I'm always hoping to maybe change.
It's like the same thing,
You're just a little late. I am away.

It's like the same thing,
You're just a little late.
I'm always hoping to maybe change.
It's like the same thing.

This is the sailor's prayer.
You can find love elsewhere.
This is the sailor's prayer.
You can find love elsewhere.

This is the sailor's prayer.
You can find love elsewhere.
This is the sailor's prayer.
You can find love elsewhere
7. Care More (3:14)
Care More

Talk to the radio.
Speak out loud, speak so true.
Sing to an old love.
Never forget, always embrace.

Something or someone try to see.
I need that much.
There's got to be more than this.
I need that much.

Try to see. Try to see.
Try to see. Try to see.

Walk to that old street.
It still remains, it hasn't changed.
Feel to what means most.
Never forget, always embrace.

Something or someone try to see.
I need that much.
There's got to be more than this.
8. Martyrs (3:28)
Martyrs

Oh.

I know I’m always here,
And I will always beg,
‘Forgive us’.

It’s just that I am
I am always gone.

So we’ll start with a question:
Why’s this on me?
What’s this have to do with faith?
It will always be ‘us and me’…
I’m just sick of being

LONELY,

Like the winds and her faint breeze,

LONELY,

Like the church to ‘set me free’.

I’m dead to those who tried to impress,
I’m dead to those who had my trust,
I’m dead to distance and to home,
I’m dead to me; I died by the Throne.

MARTYRS
MARTYRS!

Martyrs, hear me out:
Never claim what’s not forever.

Oh.

Never claim what’s not forever.

Judas, watch us weep.
(Watch us weep!)
Live and die, by your betrayal.

More doubts to be answered.
When is the Lord’s hour?
There will always be ‘us and me’,
I’m just sick of being

LONELY,

Like the winds and her faint breeze,

LONELY,

Like the church to ‘set me free’.

I’m dead to those who try to tried to impress,
I’m dead to those who had my trust,
I’m dead to distance and to home,
I’m dead to me; I died by the Throne.

I’m dead to those who try to tried to impress,
I’m dead to those who had my trust,
I’m dead to distance and to home,
I’m dead to me; I died by the Throne.

MARTYRS
MARTYRS!

Martyrs, hear me out:
Live and die by your lover’s heart.

Why’s this on me?
Why’s this on me?

MARTYRS
MARTYRS!

Martyrs, hear me out:
Live and die by your lover’s heart.
Live and die by your lover’s heart
9. Black & Blue (3:48)
10. Transgress (3:35)
I swore to forever
And I'm sure it will happen again.
Another bend, another break.
Ceaseless habits under falling skies.

I don't know where to go from here.
I've become limitless.
That's how the story goes for me,
Not that they'll understand.

I am an apparition
And that's all I ever wanted.
That's how the story goes for me,
Between pages and handwriting.

With seven plagues,
And some roots, and a throne.
I'm back at where I started.

Didn't think it'd be like this,
Didn't think it'd be like this
Or maybe I knew all along.
I didn't see this through,
Didn't see this through,
So maybe it's where I belong.

Just you and me and you.
Just you and me and you.

Didn't think it'd be like this,
Didn't think it'd be like this
Or maybe I knew all along.

Break it.
The darkness sets in.
Another bend, another break.
Ceaseless habits under falling skies.

You, me, and you.
You, me, and you.

It won't be long for me
Or it might be forever.
This hopeless destiny:
A tragic, lost endeavor.

I'm back at where I started.

Didn't think it'd be like this,
Didn't think it'd be like this
Or maybe I knew all along.
I didn't see this through,
Didn't see this through,
So maybe it's where I belong.

Just you and me and you.
Just you and me and you
11. Number Eleven (3:15)
Looking for your name,
I sort through it all.
Listening in vain,
You hope for the worst.

Looking for your name,
Falling down shallow stairs.
Waiting for the rain,
Hands extended laughing out.

As she claims that she's too much
I will hurt myself.
As she claims that she's too much
I know I must

Give it time. Give it some space.
All in all, back at the same place.
Move away and start again.
All in all, back at the same place.

I'll take you at your word:
Passing with the wind and sea.

Looking for your name,
I sort through it all.
Listening in vain,
You hope for the worst.

Looking for your name,
Still here falling down.
Waiting for the rain,
Falling down over me.

Give it time, give it some space.
All in all, back at the same place.
Move away and start again.
All in all, back at the same place.

So I'll say it again.
So I'll say it again.
So I will say it again.
You won't know love without death.

No death, no love.

Recognize the once familiar.
Recall missed steps and broken vows
12. Home for Grave (3:24)
The normal man, promised all things.
Brought into this, taken by pain.
He mistook home for grave.

The normal man, filtered by hate.
Living to pay, buying what's fake.
He mistook home for grave.

It's not what we're made to be.
So why'd he do it?
I guess he just did not know.

I guess we just do what we're told.
The anthem cries, but why listen?
I guess we just do what we're told.
Betrayed again, betrayed again.

What began as life for him
Was only sorrow, was only shame.
It's like the story of disgrace.
Fraught with peril every day.

So why'd he do it?
I guess he just did not know.
Given nothing, left so lonesome.
He mistook home for his grave.

It's not what we're made to be.
So breathe, breathe, breathe, breathe.

I guess we just do what we're told.
The anthem cries, but why listen?
I guess we just do what we're told.
Betrayed again.

What began as life for him
Was only sorrow, was only shame.
It's like the story of disgrace.
Fraught with peril every day.

I guess we just do what we're told.
Betrayed again, betrayed again.
I guess we just do what we're told.
The normal man passed away.

Dead and gone.
13. In Heart (3:27)
Again, the same things part
Flames fuel the company
It's all invisible desperation
Stop and stand and stare and break
Let it be, walk away
Ignore your instincts, and let it be with the rest
And as the game goes
Turn back or burn down
Through the bones we're all the same
With burning wings we're led astray
So we live with the dead
Call it "the apathy of love"
Name it "her majesty"
Tell her that everything will be fine
And as the lust still grows
Ignore your instincts
Turn back or burn down
Through the bones we're all the same
With burning wings we're led astray
Through the bones we're all the same
Push past the tissue and we are to blame
In blood and organs we fall apart
And in our likeness we must join in heart
