Story Of The Year : The Constant

Teksty


1. THE CHILDREN SING

Don't take this world away from me
Don't take this world away from me
Don't take this
Don't take this world away from me
Don't take this world away

Our future decides the roles we play
Struggles to sell the past away
The afterthought is staring back on better days
Cause our daughters and sons will live to pay
For every mistake that we have made
For every conviction we've betrayed
So let the children sing

Don't take this
Don't take this world away from me
Don't take this world away from me

So what we can do to waste away
An answer only time betrays
A question we'll ask ourselves from here to eternity
Will it be worth the price to pay
For living the lives in our remains
How do you think we will explain
When the children sing

Don't take this
Don't take this world away from me
Don't take this world away from me

Can we find a way to face today
With an eye on the things to come
Cause mistakes we made will bring our decay
And our chance to make a difference will be gone

So this is the price to pay
For living in our remains
Just listen as the children sing

Don't take this
Don't take this world away
Don't take this
Don't take this world away from me
Don't take this world away from me


2. THE GHOST OF YOU AND I

You'll find in time
The brightest flame will slowly die
And bear the darkest night
Two eyes and everything that's meant to shine
Burns out before your eyes

Tonight were longing for daylight
Burning the same lie
To find the ghost of you and I
We're running for midnight
Dying to ignite
To find the ghost of you and I

Cause tonight the fire that we hold inside
It wants to burn so bright
Deny and buried by a thousand lies
That fight to keep you blind

Tonight were longing for daylight
Burning the same lie
To find the ghost of you and I
We're running for midnight
Dying to ignite
To find the ghost of you and I
To find the ghost of you and I
To find the ghost of you and I

This was the day I feared the most
When all that's left inside is a memory and a ghost
Of everything we know

Yeah the memory of everything we know
And I already know
That tonight
We're longing for daylight
Burning the same lie
To find the ghost of you and I
We're longing for daylight
Burning the same lie
To find the ghost of you and I
We're running for midnight
Dying to ignite
To find the ghost of you and I
To find the ghost of you and I
To find the ghost of you and I


3. I'M ALIVE

In the night I sit alone
Lifeless to the world I know
Faith loss long ago
In this graveyard I'm calling home
Carved into the stone
A diary of broken bones and
Words I should've known

But this grave's too deep to ever make it up
I'd do anything, anything
Just to feel like I could reach the ground
I'd do anything, anything now
To spread these wings somehow
I scream these words so loud
But they never make a sound

I'm alive
But I'm barely breathing now
So place my heart under the ground
Lay me down
I'm alive
But I'm barely breathing now
So drag my lungs into the ground
Lay me down

In the night I sit alone
The stars rain on the world below
Beg me to explode
But these dreams I keep are nowhere to be found
I'd do anything, anything just to stop
This weight from pressing down
I'd do anything anything now
To spread these wings somehow
I scream these words so loud
But they never make a sound

I'm alive
But I’m barely breathing now
So place my heart under the ground
Lay me down
I'm alive
But I’m barely breathing now
So drag my lungs into the ground
Lay me down

Deep enough so that I'll never feel again
Far beneath any chance at breaking skin
I'm giving in
All the promise of smiles and happiness
That's a dream I'm not willing to admit
I'm not ready yet
To face regret
No I'm not ready yet
I'm not ready yet
No..

I'd do anything now
So spread these wings somehow
I scream these words so loud
But they never make a sound

I'm alive
But I’m barely breathing now
So place my heart under the ground
Lay me down
I'm alive
But I'm barely breathing now
Tread my lungs into the ground
Lay me down


4. TO THE BURIAL

Bleed us, bleed us
For their capital
Lead us, lead us
To the Burial

Yeah,
Step aside and watch the lions roar as they rule
With an iron fist and boundless force
Like a plague - their epidemic spreads across the floor
Just let me introduce you
To who’s behind that door

A smiling face
With style and grace
They'll show you to the fire

Bleed us, bleed us
For their capital
Lead us, lead us
To the Burial

They built their reign of wealth through manufactured wars
As they ship all our factories off to foreign shores
Just to keep their pockets full and leave the people poor
This is the kind of system we've been slaving for

Eventually,
Like sheep we'll be,
Led blindly to the slaughter

Bleed us, bleed us
For their capital
Lead us, lead us
To the Burial

Headstones bleeds admiration
A Backhanded eulogy
In the face of devastation
Gladly they’ll sing our praise

For a life of slaving and digging our own graves
Now just let the usher show you to the final resting place
Yeah, what a disgrace

We are…
Now!

Just learn to breath
And you will see
Your life is what you make it

Bleed us, bleed us
For their capital
Lead us, lead us
To the Burial


5. THE DREAM IS OVER

Let this dagger bury deep
Cause I'm not afraid to bleed
Through all the spaces in between
Never meant anything
Cause I gave everything I had
To build a promise land
A place where proudly I could stand
This castle made of sand
Is slipping through my hands

The dream is over now
Our hearts have been misguided
Lost somehow
The dream is over now
Our fate has been decided
It's all been lost somehow
Its over now

Is this a blessing or a curse
A message well rehearsed
A means to justify the end
Of what we could've been
Bury every word I've said in the city of the dead
And drown this masterpiece in red
The color in my head
This tired skin ill shed

The dream is over now
Our hearts have been misguided
Lost somehow
The dream is over now
Our fate has been decided
It's all been lost somehow
Lost somehow

The waters rushing in
We're fighting over the remains
Of a sea too crowded to repair
We're dying to defend a feeling that has lost its way
Cause our dreams no longer there

The dream is over now
Our hearts have been misguided
Lost somehow
The dream is over now
Our fate has been decided
It's all been lost somehow
It's over now (it's over now)
It's over now (it's over now)
Yeah it's over now

Our fate has been decided
It's all been lost somehow
Lost somehow
Yeah it's over now


6. REMEMBER A TIME

Can we open the pages
To remember a time
When the images focused
And the planets were aligned
All the stars up above us
Let us travel through time
They erase all the distance separating you and i
And now this glass will get me through the night (through the night)
As the stars go over I know I'll be alright

It's no surprise that the feeling has changed
And the years have slipped away
Through the hands of time
Open your eyes cause that promise we made
That our light would never fade
It'll never die

In the light of the morning
In the dark of the night
We were balancing moments
On the thin edge of a knife
Can we dig up forgiveness where we buried the lies
Can we fill all the voids left by the hardest of goodbyes

It's no surprise that the feeling has changed
And the years have slipped away
Through the hands of time
Open your eyes cause that promise we made
That our light would never fade
It'll never die
Never die

There was a time when we felt like years away
Somehow we never let hope or pictures fade
There was a night when we let go of our fears
Somehow we never disappear

It's no surprise that the feeling has changed
And the years have slipped away
Through the hands of time
Open your eyes cause that promise we made
That our light would never fade
It'll never die

It's no surprise that we all have changed
And the years have slipped away
Through the hands of time
Open your eyes it's that promise we made
That our light would never fade
Never ever die
Never die


7. HOLDING ON TO YOU

Another year's gone so fast
Another life becomes the past
Under the weight of dreams
That I never thought would last
Feelings clash
A satellite across the globe
This window seat becomes my home
I lay awake for hours staring at the world below

Into the waves again I go
Holding on to you
I found a way to make it through
By holding on to you

Another night just slips away
Wishing the time would let me stay
Stuck in between two lives that could never be the same
I remain without a chance to say to you
That every word I said was true
I lay awake all night just staring back at you

Into the waves again I go
Holding on to you
I found a way to make it through
Holding on to you

Just one more day we'll make it though
Will you - still feel the same way that I do
Will you feel the way I do

Into the waves again I go
Holding on to you
I found a way to make it through
Holding on to you
Into the waves again I go
Holding on to you
I found a way to make it through
So I'm holding on to you

Just one more day we'll make it through
We'll make it through


8. WON THREW ATE

Blood still pours down onto the page
Pride falls rattle we betrayed
Drowning in a flood of inequality
False sell the true meaning of love
Chests swell warning from above
Is this the kind of balance we've been dreaming of

And now we've had enough

Cause so far there's no such thing
That's true equality
Until a new design comes to set us free
We all, we all will

Bleed our voice
Silence writes this song
Her choice gone and in control
Hoping that someday she'll learn to play her role
No control
No control

Your right to speak your mind will be the next one to go
Just watch as it unfolds

Cause so far there's no such thing
That's true equality
Until a new design comes to set us free
We all will bleed

Ignorance a new disease
Prideful insecurities
Fighting to believe
So disregard the suffering
Just let the sounds of freedom ring
Through this air we breathe

All wars are created equal
All wars are created equal

Yeah we will find the answer now with one more trigger pull

Cause so far there's no such thing
That's true equality
Until a new design comes to set us free
We all, we all, all will bleed
We'll bleed!


9. TEN YEARS DOWN

Ten years down
Destiny foretold
Senses drown
Dreams are wide and gold
Increase my mind
Beginning to be sold
Sacred ties have never felt so cold

But the introduction never had a name
And all the answers to my questions never came

But I found my reason to shed my skin
And I'll never say those words again
Cause I beg for mercy and I cry my sins
But I'll never say those words again
Never again

Ten years found
Treasure I could hold
Embrace the crown his broken wings unfold
Words divide connected to the soul
Burning inside this disenchanted world

But the introduction never had a name
And all the answers to my questions never came

But I found my reason to shed my skin
And I'll never say those words again
Cause I beg for mercy and I cry my sins
But I'll never say those words again
Never again
Never again

Never again will I be the one to hang on every word you say
And I'll never feel the same I'll never feel this way
Cause the introduction never had a name
And all the answers to my questions never came (they never Came)
They never came

But I found my reason to shed my skin
And I'll never say those words again
Cause I beg for mercy and I cry my sins
But I'll never say those words again
But I found my reason to shed my skin
And I'll never say those words again
Cause I beg for mercy and I cry my sins
But I'll never say those words again
Those words again
Never again
Never again


10. TIME GOES ON

The crowd will rise sky will fall
A flash of light to bury us all
Cause we are a time bomb
The ashes rain and hide the sun
Of every remains is what we've done
Cause we are a time bomb
Just letting this time go on and on and on and on

Underneath this sky we'll rise and fall
'Til our way of life is gone
Underneath it all time still goes on and on and on and on And on

A new empire to wear the crown
What we desire will carry us down
Cause we are a time bomb
A life destroyed a culture lost
One little boy will measure their cause
Cause we are a time bomb
Just waiting as time goes on and on and on and on

Underneath this sky we'll rise and fall
'Til our way of life is gone
Underneath it all time still goes on and on and on and on and on
Time goes on
Time goes on
Yeah time goes on

Now lives will be drawn (lives will be drawn)
In the faded memory of
The lives come and gone
But time still goes on
A new day will dawn (a new day will dawn)
And die beneath this sun
For lifetimes to come
Time carries on

Underneath this sky we'll rise and fall
'Til our way of life is gone
Underneath it all time still goes on and on and on and on
On and on and on and on
On and on and on and on
Cause time goes on
Yeah time goes on


11. EYE FOR AN EYE

In my eyes
Watch the world ignite
Watch as we give everything to just be alive
With the fire in our hearts
We'll stand and fight
For the dream inside
Take it back for inspired minds
Loss in the decline
It's more than words to me
This is our life

Eye for an eye bring your heart to the fight
Cause we'll take the whole world down with us tonight
Eye for an eye leave your weakness behind
Burn down the lies
Eye for an eye

'Til we die
Let the hearts unite
Not for fashion, passing trends
Or a sense of pride
Just a love and passion that we hold inside
Now the world is mine
Hold it down for the P.A.C. 'til the day I die
Cause this is more than blood we bleed
This is our life

Eye for an eye and bring your heart to the fight
Cause we'll take the whole world down with us tonight
Eye for an eye leave your weakness behind
Burn down the lies
Eye for an eye

Eye for an eye
Eye for an eye
