The Life We Lead Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Theo
1. Intro (1:44)
2. The Confession (3:46)
I must admit sometimes I make myself sick I'm depressed anxious and ungrateful All for what? I do this to myself and find others to be my scapegoat I cry wolf No wonder no one ever listens to me

I can't stop beating myself up I punish myself for Everything And I only drag the ones I love down with me

Why can't I love all the beautiful things in my life Why can't I feel Please! I need to change

I'm am not in control I'm ruthless

in my pursuit to feel alive

I just feel dead inside

Things Iv said x2

Things iv done I'm only looking out for myself

I can not accept this

I cannot accept anxiety I am constantly changing everything that’s surrounding me

I am sick I don't give a shit

about anything anymore I just need to love myself -x2

I am so sick of feeling Dead inside My body feels so broken My mind is so warn

Anxiety beat me down Why can't I control my thoughts

There is a poison inside me

Inside my mind

I cannot control it

Slowly painfully it kills me

I am killing myself x2

But I will not fall victim to myself

I have bested you before I will defeat my ghost

I am changing x2
3. Tyrants (3:46)
Force-fed by machines to take in color schemes as the world is turning bleak Crucified for speaking out against their subjugated grounds colors that once stood for peace are fading now watch them bleed

Die for a purpose much longer gone than yourself Save us from slaving in eternal hell Wed locked from birth into loving the soil that the tyrants have forsaken Make your blood boil

Inoculate them with your filth Still un-pleased with the blood that's spilled

With dawns rise we'll take the skies

In our ascent we'll rain hell fire down At the ruins we watch as they drown

I'm not asking for change, just understanding If you could hear me than you could see

Die for a purpose much longer gone than yourself Save us from slaving in eternal hell Wed locked from birth into loving the soil that the tyrants have forsaken Make your blood boil

Force fed by machines to take in color schemes as the world is turning bleak Crucified for speaking out against their subjugated grounds These colors that once stood for peace are fading now watch them bleed

As I stand in the flames of a world screaming for change Soon the deranged will know all of our names

not asking for change not asking for change

Take us away from the sanctity of the dreamers life Let us go with all you know, tell me your greatest lie
4. Infectious (3:43)
This world is sick It blows my mind Every single time I think of the past A part of me dies How many lives will they take This was no mistake So much hate That filled my heart That filled my heart

looking into your eyes all I see is innocence Hold onto my hand, I will lead you Grab onto me tight, we will make it through

Please don't leave my side I cannot lose you We are lost in a world that is lost in itself

The challenge of living is surviving your own self destruction Body and mind combine to Be your own prison Slowly educing you into madness with no control over yourself

We will live but alone we Will die Together we must survive

WE WILL NOT DIE ALONE

in a world where we all are infectious X2

But I am not afraid I do not fear death

Hold on tightly, do not let go Hold on tightly, do not let go Hold on tightly, do not let go Hold on tightly, do not let go

We are all perfect imperfections in a world where we're born to die This is life

Don't look back now, we're on our own Don't look back now, we're on our own Don't look back now, we're on our own Don't look back now, we're on our own

We are all perfect imperfections in a world where we're born to die This is life

The only thing that maters to me Is to be safe from all tragedy I WILL not be in a world without you I'll protect you, only you and me I will never be without you ever again I can never see myself surviving this without you I will never be, never see, never live again You will never be alone I am the one you will always see

We will not die we survive
5. This Life (ft. Tony Leone) (3:01)
Just live your life your way

follow all of your dreams

Just as I am mine

let nothing hold you back

Push everything aside x4

And don’t forget those who hold you back and lie cannot be trusted

Those who hold you back and lie cannot be trusted

Don't ever let anyone's negativity keep you from reaching your goals this is our world now time to push back with everything you got and reach for stars...

Then once you get where you’re going and can finally take a breathe you'll see that all of the struggle was worth it to finally be who you want not what someone else tries to mold

I see it now my life is only controlled by myself

Make the decision to take control

Your destiny is what you make it break yourself from all of these chains

That hold you back they will only try to weigh you down you can only go as far as you

Carry yourself , live by these words

Live for today dream of tomorrow

I see it now my life is only controlled by myself

Make the decision to take control

Your destiny is what you make it break yourself from all of these chains
6. Slaves (4:14)
With these tall dark walls that are closing in I will hold my own in this place that means nothing to me.

So what’s this lie we've have been told all our lives

fight until you’re dead its the way to survive x2

But these walls feel just too tall to try and climb above them all but these walls feel just too tall to climb above, to overcome

I know I must face this, Face this--

I know I must brave this, brave this

I won't let it break me, break me

This isn't what I'm meant to be, meant to be

I will break the chains that bind me, hold me down

I refuse to let this life confine me, pour me out

conform to this machine, unholy decree

Take to the skies, eviscerate memories

Look at how we always slave, slave away

Every day the same page, story of shame

Always repeat, never change, seek life in ashes

As one we can overcome with rage

but these walls feel just too tall to try and climb above them all but these walls feel just too tall to climb above, to overcome

so what’s this lie that we have been told all our lives

fight until you’re dead its the only way to survive x2

I feel alone but I’m not on my own

I am the only one who can make this change

My life will not be a waste

I will break through these walls and I will tear them down

We will not live the life of a slave

We will not live from workhouse to the grave

I feel alone but I’m not on my own

I am the only one who can make this change
7. Interlude (1:28)
8. Years of My Life (3:53)
Do not mistake my kindness for weakness, I am taking a leap of faith

off a cliff I did not look below

I do not know how I will land

but I know ill have my friends and family

and they will all see

and they will believe

I tried my best I tried my best

but push myself too far

my bones feel broken and my mind is worn

the air feels so cold please keep me warm

my bones feel broken and my mind is worn

my nightmares are a prison they keep me up at night

but my dreams are my salvation

they are what keeps me moving

my memories calm me down

they remind me why I cannot afford to lose

in this game we call life no one wants to live at

the edge of a knife

I feel nothing

not a single goddamn emotion

5 years and I could not open my mind, my heart

and let you in so I let it go

2 years I have been locked in this cell

bruised and beaten down

I am finally breaking free

changes are coming

years gone by

I am taking control
9. 88 (3:45)
I slowly watched the beauty leave your eyes As you let someone else control your life I don't want to hear about the sleepless nights You sat staring at your reflection in a knife

Go romanticize destruction and death After all there the only friends you have left Your broken hands were only made to wreak Ravage everything you come into contact with

You sent the message for me to receive No turning back now you've been swallowed by greed I find it fucking hard , hard to believe. You'd have the ability to take everything from me

Bit through my tongue holding back these words You and your antics completely absurd I won't stand by and watch you hurt another helpless soul Bit through my patience wasted my time Sat by as you committed your crimes I will make the truth shine Upon all your dirty lies

You are so hopeless and your defeat it is bitter sweet this rage lies within my bones I can feel it linger in my teeth

I have waited so long for this. To silence the words on your lips. I have waited so long for this. I have waited so long for this.

Choke on the words That fall from your lips. Opinions are facts Taken from faulty tips. Defeat is a beast It's teeth they clench and they rip Venom in a bottle now take your drunken sips
10. Kings (3:13)
There are so many snakes in this world attacking when your guard is down Liars tyrants filled with deceit misconception and greed They pray on , the weak the poor Doing all they can , to keep us on our knees

On our knees x3

But we won't bow Sucking peasants Dry of all hope No matter the cost

I will not be held down by your misconception and constant greedx2

You will not control us again we will be stronger in the end x2

Just because we are young they look down on us everyday Just because we are weak they try to control us in every way

Done with this the world as they know it

The weak will rise

Their struggles

Experience

Driving them

All kings will die we will rise

I will not be held down by your misconception and constant greed x2

You will not control us again we will be stronger in the end x2
11. Broken (3:29)
We have broken homes Broken hearts Broken bones

Those who follow will Never get home

You need to lead only Yourself

I ask you to stand For what you believe

This life is tough Believe me I have seen

But remember Your perfect

If your going to fight, fight for all of your dreams

If they raise their fist Do not be afraid

Stand up for yourself for what you believe

Don't let anyone say You are less than them

Don't ever feel the world is crashing in

you are strong They couldn't ever win

Sinister is life in the way it turns around and spits in your face It tears you down piece by piece, drowning you in all your grief Follow you and no one else They can't stop you now

We have broken homes Broken hearts Broken bones

Those who follow will Never get home

You need to lead only Yourself

I ask you to stand For what you believe

Disconnect from euphoria in your head to keep alive Feel the pain to remember you are still alive To fight the fight

We're not machines tailored to their beliefs Belligerent beings just searching for inner peace We'll smash their walls and burn their lines Take back the freedom in our minds No more martyrs, only champions Fuck their declaration, this world is ours

Control and conquer your dreams Stay true to all your beliefs Burn down your vices to the ground Don't let them sleep safe and sound

We have broken homes Broken hearts Broken bones

Those who follow will Never get home

You need to lead only Yourself

I ask you to stand For what you believe
12. Swept Away (4:18)
Even with my head in the clouds I am reaching for stars again To most eyes my dreams are out of reach But I will show them my determination

On that day I was swept away Because your beliefs were all in me I can see it now you are my foundation

I can see your vision of me When I look into the mirror I can see in prefect clarity It couldn’t be clearer x2

Who am I, To be now

In this time who will carry me

If I cant carry myself

I just cant believe how far I’ve come

I will be myself around you always

Your strength would hold me me up

Hold me, above all

Who am I supposed to be

Will you be there for me all I ask is for your love

All I need is your compassion

Your love

How many months have I been here?

It's like time has no meaning.

lost track of the years, I've been waiting for a change.

Can't count the days that I've spent dreaming.

Daydreamer. X2

I am breaking all of these chains

They wont hold me back anymore

I am chasing all of my dreams

Will you chase them along with me
13. The End (4:24)
LAY ANOTHER FINGER

and I will not hesitate to remind you of the life that you lead
all the shit you have done does it make you feel satisfied
you should burn in hell for what you have done you piece of shit
they were innocent you took that from them A LIFE OF FEAR
you laid your fist too many times
I wish I could get you alone I would remind you of the pain you put them through
you will feel the pain the fear and the sorrow
how can you live with yourself you are filth
I will not stand ideally by, you make them cry

cant you see it

they will never fall victim to your monstrous ways you were never meant to touch them what kind of man are you

I have seen enough

Battles are our own, but this no one should undergo It's embedded as we grow old, things that one will never know You are not theirs to forsake, lay away in these arms of grace I can assure that you're out of harms way, you're out of sight and out of mind But you will always find that the darkness is inside When no amnesty is presented, an iron fist he shall answer to

Spilled for the last time, blood of your kind You're mine now, you're fucking mine I will make you suffer for every second they've been through How could you do this to your offspring? Cherish them, don't cause them to bleed It's inconceivable, my god it's unbelievable A face so deceitful capable of such evil

I have never wanted this so bad wait and i will get you alone

YOU WILL FEAR ME

I want you to know the feeling of being alone and helpless you fucking piece of shit
