Day to Day

♫ Day to Day – Erised http://spoti.fi/JRTt6D http://routenote.com/r/Erised/5051813710469
Day to Day

I walk the streets aimlessly not knowing where to begin,
when did life become a tragedy and I the victim again.
Break apart the sadness I hold in my heart,
and then peace will dwell here again I will know where to start.

--But I don't know if life will change,
same old thing from day to day,
nothing shines, nothing sparkles the way it used to,
I feel my hope slip away.--

I had a dream the other night as I lay in bed,
darkness was here, everywhere, as if I were dead,
a then the rain came and washed it all away....no more pain.--

Then I see in her eyes a future there for me,
make it past the day to day, love will save me.

Masquerade

♫ Masquerade – Erised http://spoti.fi/1cIDhvC http://routenote.com/r/Erised/5051813710469

Masquerade

You said you would last,
but you wouldn't,
you said you could wait,
but you couldn't,
you said you did love me,
but you didn't.

It was all a masquerade.

You wanted more,
I wanted less,
You wanted a love,
I wanted a friend.
When you left I was glad you were gone.

I haven't missed you,
because it was all a masquerade.

Rhythms + Rhymes

Hey, what am I doing here? Hey, Why can't I see, feel and hear?
Tell me what’s happened, Tell me what’s happened, Tell me what’s happened to me,
I went out to fight and became a casualty.

HEY, THIS WASN'T SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN TO ME.

oh, hey, please release me, don't want to live this way,
just another casualty to the rhythms and the rhymes.

IT WASN'T LOVE, IT WASN'T HOPE, IT WASN'T PEACE I WAS FIGHTING FOR,
It was just words.

Those SLOGANS, those PROPAGANDA FILMS,
FIGHT FOR YOUR COUNTRY, FIGHT FOR DEMOCRACY,
FIGHT FOR THIS AND FIGHT FOR THAT,
not knowing you'll be a casualty to the rhythms and the rhymes.

I WANT TO GO HOME, I WANT TO BE FREE,

I WANT TO LIVE AS OTHER MEN DO,

LET ME OUT OF THIS CELL, OUT OF THIS CAGE,

not trapped here in my mind-----------------------
not for these words, hear me? not for these words.

Just another (one more) casualty to the rhythms and the rhymes.

what you leave me is rust,
nothing but slow decay.

Nickel angel show your pastel face,
bundle me in your warm embrace,
soft and sweet melting the cast off sleet,
you strive to be alive again.

(chorus) Dance the dance of ages,
your lips form a smirk,
your bible's lost it's pages,
and in my back sticks a dirk.--

Alas, my love, you do me wrong,
life was to have clarity,
in the shadows we walk along,
joined hand and hand in conformity.(chorus)

Nickel angel do you still have any worth?
you weren't meant for this Earth...

♫ Lead – Erised http://spoti.fi/1awPZyt http://routenote.com/r/Erised/5051813710469
Lead

"Don't fill me with lead," the poor man plead,
as the thief looked away,
"I've got a family you see,
and they all need me,
so don't take me away."

"But I must," the thief said,
"you have yet to ever bled,
and don't think I won't make you pay,
you have breathed your last breath,
your time is here I'm your death,
and today is your dying day."

The man began to squirm,
when the thief's eyes confirmed,
that it would be over sooner then said,
the gun was swift, as the thief's fatal gift,
knocked him dead.

"Goodbye walleye, you are but a fish I have fried,
let the waves just take you away,
whether there's a Heaven or Hell,
you'll be the first to tell,
I'll see you on All Soul's Day..."

I was thinking the other night,
When did my lying begin?
Always tried to do what's right,
there I go failing again.

(chorus) How much more smiling will this take?
I'm so fake, to the point I break,
Try to be nice for nice sake,
But I try... Mr. Nice Guy.

Should this be my cross to bare?
to have you as my friend,
it's hurts too much for me to care,
there I go failing again.

How much more smiling will this take?
I'm so fake, to the point I break,
Try to be nice for nice sake,
But I try... Mr. Nice Guy:)

There I go failing again...

 Fallen Star

Standing up at the water’s edge,
Pushed me too close to that tempting ledge,
Now we’re strangers, it feels so rough,
Left with fears I wasn’t good enough…

Fallen > Star >

Damaged, feeling so dead inside,
The pain of being cast aside…

Fallen > Star >

(Chorus) Brothers Compromised,
Prophesy of lies, Drowning Eyes,
However, Bright you are, Fallen star…

I need to let go, to move on,
Thoughtlessly gone, you were depended on,
Offended, wronged, betrayal deep,
You’ve changed brother, the real you sleeps…

Fallen > Star >

I want you to suffer as I,
A love, closeness I was denied…

Fallen > Star > (Chorus)

The words you preached were never true,
Music, it seems still escapes you,
Rhythms you’ve lost in broken time,
Under the Water’s Icy Rhyme…

Fallen > Star >

Ego made you unable to see,
Angry there is no room for me…

Fallen > Star > (Chorus)

No shelter from this storm,

 Muse

I can feel the passion,
As she flows through me,
Never know where we're going,
Only at the end I see.

In my mind she enters,
Never stood a chance,
Arms out wide, she welcomes,
Lost in a dance.

Innocent to her spell,
My heart, mine to lose,
There will be no return,
I'm taken by the muse...

Push

You push too hard my limit will break,
The first time you pushed was a big mistake.

The higher you climb the more you don't see,
That person under your boot is my trying to break free.

Never a giver all you did was take,
Do you know the hell I feel?
All I know is forsake.

Higher, higher, higher. Push me to break...

And yet I hold on for love's sake,
What a joke...
All you leave is heartache.

Higher, higher, higher. Push me to break,
Higher, higher, higher. On your cross I break...

I see you standing there,

All the hatred, all the pain
We're all one, we're all the same
Most won't know, how it ends no
It's like going to the moon
It's like holding on to you

There won't be any angels
Or demons in the sun
I wish to think I finally see
In my final hour
We are all one

but still you return,
hush as hope burns...

Mr. Nice Guy

♫ Mr. Nice Guy – Erised http://spoti.fi/1ayNy03 http://routenote.com/r/Erised/5051813234699

Mr. Nice Guy

I was thinking the other night,
When did my lying begin?
Always tried to do what's right,
there I go failing again.

(chorus) How much more smiling will this take?
I'm so fake, to the point I break,
Try to be nice for nice sake,
But I try... Mr. Nice Guy.

Should this be my cross to bare?
to have you as my friend,
it's hurts too much for me to care,
there I go failing again.

How much more smiling will this take?
I'm so fake, to the point I break,
Try to be nice for nice sake,
But I try... Mr. Nice Guy:)

There I go failing again...

Raindrops

♫ Raindrops – Erised http://spoti.fi/1iv6u31 http://routenote.com/r/Erised/5051813234699
Raindrops

Every sweet word you say,
Every little thing you do,
My love burning for you,
Every caring kiss,
Every sunny smile,
I will always be true.

There is nothing that I'd rather do,
than dance through the raindrops with you...

Every sweet word you say,
Every little thing you do,
My heart beating for you,
Every longing caress,
Every "I Love You,"
I'll be here waiting for you.

There is nothing that I'd rather do,
than dance through the raindrops with you...

There is nothing that I'd rather do,
than dance through the raindrops with you,
Time after time you're the one that I choose,
I'll always dance through the raindrops with you...

Every sweet word you say,
Every little thing you do,
My love...

Rhythms + Rhymes

♫ Rhythms + Rhymes – Erised http://spoti.fi/1deKXvQ http://routenote.com/r/Erised/5051813234699

Rhythms + Rhymes

Hey, what am I doing here? Hey, Why can't I see, feel and hear?
Tell me what’s happened, Tell me what’s happened, Tell me what’s happened to me,
I went out to fight and became a casualty.

HEY, THIS WASN'T SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN TO ME.

oh, hey, please release me, don't want to live this way,
just another casualty to the rhythms and the rhymes.

IT WASN'T LOVE, IT WASN'T HOPE, IT WASN'T PEACE I WAS FIGHTING FOR,
It was just words.

Those SLOGANS, those PROPAGANDA FILMS,
FIGHT FOR YOUR COUNTRY, FIGHT FOR DEMOCRACY,
FIGHT FOR THIS AND FIGHT FOR THAT,
not knowing you'll be a casualty to the rhythms and the rhymes.

I WANT TO GO HOME, I WANT TO BE FREE,

I WANT TO LIVE AS OTHER MEN DO,

LET ME OUT OF THIS CELL, OUT OF THIS CAGE,

not trapped here in my mind-----------------------
not for these words, hear me? not for these words.

Just another (one more) casualty to the rhythms and the rhymes.

Iron

♫ Iron – Erised http://spoti.fi/1hSsoPW http://routenote.com/r/Erised/5051813234699

 Iron

You weren't the one to entrust,
I thought you would make it okay,
what you leave me is rust,
nothing but slow decay.

(chorus)Iron,
wash away,
iron,
you can never stay.--

You weren't there for me,
I thought love would last,
what I feel can never be,
nothing but the past.(chorus)

Time ticks away,
soon it will all run out,
I have things to say,
but there's nothing to talk about.(chorus)...

Nickel

♫ Nickel – Erised http://spoti.fi/1bwzwZF http://routenote.com/r/Erised/5051813234699
Nickel

Nickel angel show your pastel face,

bundle me in your warm embrace,
soft and sweet melting the cast off sleet,
you strive to be alive again.

(chorus) Dance the dance of ages,
your lips form a smirk,
your bible's lost it's pages,
and in my back sticks a dirk.--

Alas, my love, you do me wrong,
life was to have clarity,
in the shadows we walk along,
joined hand and hand in conformity.(chorus)

Nickel angel do you still have any worth?
you weren't meant for this Earth...
