Misery Signals : Controller

Teksty


1. NOTHING

As I reach out my hands to the sky
It's in this moment that I've come to realize, I've played my part,
for all of those who said it could never be done,
this is for you,
tormented by my every undying devotion to you.

I have destroyed myself,
this time it was all or nothing,
I struck the match and turned away,
torch the fields and pray for rain.

I have entered the eye of your storm,
a pause of affliction,
but I'll never feel so alive as i do when your world falls apart,
I feed on the thrill of knowing that all our hope is lost,
I want nothing more than to be given the chance to start again.

If I could find a cure, I'd cleanse myself of all I know,
cut the cold bring the plague,
start again,
I'd give anything to return to the nothing from which I came,
ash to ash, dust to dust,
start again.

I'd give anything to return to nothing

If not forgiven, will this all be forgotten?
As this guilt will outlive us both,
Dear God, What have I let myself become?


2. WEIGHT OF THE WORLD

Once again I end up biting the bullet
Don't act surprised, by now it's second nature
It happens over and over again
I only bend so far before I break
And in return, nothing leaves me satisfied
But it's only a matter of time

Won't be long, I smell the fuse burn shorter
And I'm not about to snuff it out
I'll take this head on till the end
Hear my voice, no cries for deliverance
I've become the victim of my own defense
And there's no one to blame but myself

As the structure fails
I'll pray for the fall out
For I am what I create
As the embers rise
I'll be at the bottom
When it all comes down
I'll carry the weight of the world

Strapped to my back
I'll carry the weight of the world
Chained to my neck
I'll carry the weight of the world


3. LABYRINTHIAN

Drag my face through the dirt again
I know right where I belong
For you're a constant reminder
of all the rights that i've wronged
OH, give me the strength to move this mountain
to block this line of sight.

this was more than i could ask for,
tear down the sky.
black out, black out, black out the sky
sever, sever these ties.

As you further your tragedy
to prove to me you're alive
sooner or later we'll have to choose
from this, a new set of lies.
OH, give me the strength to flood this valley,
to wash my hands of you.

This was more than I could ask for,
tear down the sky.
black out, black out, black out the sky,
sever, sever these ties.

So here I stand, this battered path laid out before me
And noone said this would be easy, but it's something i must do for myself
it's going to be a long, a long hard road
NO, i will let go, this time it feels so right to forget.

This was more than I could ask for,
tear down the sky.
black out, black out, black out the sky,
sever, sever these ties.

So here i stand, this battered man laid out before you,
and noone said this would be easy, but it's something i must do for myself
it's going to be a long, a long hard road
which I, will walk, alone
I, will walk alone.


4. PARALLELS

No footprints before me
Will I be the one that finds a way?
Our fate unfolding
Is there something more then the roles we play?
How deep the roots dig
And they sink into my skin
I see myself in the cracks of your foundation
And these walls will crumble by our hands
We don't talk much anymore
And we're not letting down our guard

We are not alone
Everyone is lost
Waiting on a second wind
Just believe we are not alone

Speak to me.
What can be said while we're still being honest?
Only then will these marks start to heal
And cleanse us of these demons
But there's so much to say, and there's so little time
Take my hand and walk with me
Lead me to salvation
And in return I'll offer you my pledge to start all over
But there's so much to say, and we're so far behind

No footprints before me
Will I be the one that finds a way?
Feel how deep the roots dig
And they sink into my skin
I see myself in the cracks of your foundation
And these walls will crumble by our hands
We don't talk much anymore, but motherfucker we hit hard

No, we are not alone
Everyone is lost
Waiting on a second wind
We are not alone


5. COMA

Press rewind
Play it back in this dark room,
It's been so long,
I don't remember who we used to be.

Go slow,
Is it safe to come out again?
In skin like stone,
Now I can't believe anyone anymore,
I wasted it on you.

They were sinking or swimming,
I was floating away.
(x2)

On our own,
We see the world now for what it's worth,
Undo what's done, (x2)
Before this heart destroys its host.

They were sinking or swimming,
I was floating away.

Reach into her guts,
Take back what's tangled up,
I wasted it on you,
Reach into her guts.

We're just rehearsing who we think we are. (x5)


6. A CERTAIN DEATH

Embrace this sickness with open arms
If you believe you'll run with ghosts.
Pull out the arrows that poison your mind
Look inside and ask yourself why
Why would you really want to live forever,
Every breath expelled together?

In faith alone, in place apart
Be there to meet your maker

Raise your eyes from sleep
Together you will keep searching
The answers will never come

I can't pretend anymore to be a part of this
I'll leave my burdens at the door
But I'll never walk here again


7. SET IN MOTION

Our fears ring true,
We're on a march towards the end,
Cover my eyes,
But I still hear the deafening drums of war,
Onward every twisted spoke.

Let's make history,
Let's make history stop,
When there's nothing left,
We'll be fed our father's dreams.

And I find every time I face this skyline,
I picture it in ruins,
It's not going to stop.

Our fears ring true,
We are numbered with the dead,
When I finally come apart,
Every piece will melt holes into the streets,
Onward every twisted spoke.

Let's make history,
Let's make history stop,
When there's nothing left,
We'll be fed our father's dreams.

We can't let it happen like this,
Burn it down,
Burn it to the fucking gound,
It's not going to stop.


8. EBB AND FLOW

Revive our sense of hope
Unlet these abandoned dreams
Rewrite what it is to feel
In hopes it will carry me home

Carry me home
Drift in and out
The light of morning drags me back
I need, release separate this body
From my mind

Send me home
Send me home

My conscious fades
Send me home to sleep
When i need you closer
For when i wake
I am greeted by shades of grey
I'll return to you
I'll return to you

In dreams the sunsets in our eyes
In dreams we'll never be apart
In dreams i promise you'll never be alone
How much i wish your voice could send me home


9. RESET

Panic sets in,
the room just spins,
here it comes again.

Slipping through my fingers, out of my reach,
nothing is picture perfect,
buried under the rocks of a landslide,
nothing here is picture perfect,
slipping through your fingers,
it's out of your hands.

Bleed,
holding on gets harder and harder,
giving up gets harder and harder,
release,
the tension corrupts direction,
I've lost control.

Slipping through your fingers, it's out of my grasp,
nothing here is ever perfect,
crippled by the weight of the downfall,
nothing here is real.

Keep control.

A lifetime of open wounds,
completely incomplete.

Holding on gets harder and harder,
giving up gets harder and harder,
release,
the tension corrupts direction,
I've lost control.

Just hold on tighter and tighter, and keep control,
just hold on tighter and tighter, just hold me still.


10. HOMECOMING

The spell is broken,
masked in rituals to capture the sun,
bloodletting,
monuments of guilt,
if I had one wish, I'd stop all the clocks,
within me, the spell is broken.

We all are still alive,
we radiate.

Breathe now,
it's in the wind that we give and we take,
they never really have us if we just keep breathing.

I have seen them,
within me the spell is broken.

Home,
at last...
homecoming at last,
now feel what is unseen,
within me, the spell is broken.
