Random Thing I Put Together!

A long time ago when I was a weird happy teenager in high school I put a bunch of lyrics from my favorite songs together to make this hot mess! I have no idea what the point of this piece was about, but looking back at it who knew that these lyrics would fit together.

Down below will be a list of links to the songs from the lyrics in case you want to give them a listen!

Lie awake in bed at night

And think about your life

Do you want to be different? Try to let go of the truth

The battles of your youth

And if I had to I would put myself right beside you

So let me ask,

“Tell me would you kill to save a life?

Tell me would you kill to prove you’re right?”

No matter how many deaths that I die I will never forget

No matter how many lives that I live, I will never regret

So now I’ll ask

“Do you like that?

Do you like that?

NO!”

Crash, crash, burn let it all burn

This hurricane’s chasing us all underground

And at the end of the world

On a mountain he sits, not of gold but of shit

I want to paint down my memories so I won’t forget

Through the blood he can look, see the life that he took.

Can we dance when it’s cold outside?

Or is this the last thing I see

You are never coming home, never coming home

If you close your eyes does it almost feel like

Nothing changed at all?

Wishing on a star that’s just a satellite.

Into your eyes, hopeless and taken

Don’t trust a perfect person

And don’t trust a song that’s flawless.

We were just kids and they left us alone,

To burn out forever or light up a spark

Light a match make it last we are all we need

We’ll light up the dark

In defense of our dreams.

From council of one he’ll decide when he’s done with the innocent

The promises he made were not enough.

The prayers that we have prayed were like a drug

And on his face is the map of the world.

Come a little closer as the night gets older,

I wanna stand in a crowded room

Screaming the voice they can’t ignore.

A bullet for them,

A bullet for you,

A bullet for everybody in this room,

But I don’t see any bullets coming through

We were victims of ourselves

And like a deer in the headlights

I meet my fate.

Do you really want…

Do you really want me?

Want me dead

Or alive to torture you for my sins?

So fake your death

Or it’s your blame and leave the lights on when you stay

‘Cause even heroes get the blues

Or any misery you chose.

I kissed the scars on her skin

I still think you’re beautiful

And I don’t ever wanna lose my best friend

Bring her back or take me with her.

That little kiss you stole

It hurt my heart and soul

There was truth

There was consequence against you

A weak defense then

There’s me, with the beast inside

All my life, I was never there just a ghost running scared

Nowhere we can hide.

While everyone is sleeping I am wide awake

As the walls kept crumbing down

In the city that we loved

But if you closed your eyes

Does it almost feel like you’ve been here before.

This is my kingdom, come it’s where my demons hide

Lost in the city of angels,

I found myself in the fire burnt hills

In the land of a billion lights.

Turning our night lights on in the daytime to scare

If this is the moment now to ask “do we dare?”

When the lights fade out all the sinners crawl.

So let the world sing, “what a shame, what a shame

Beautiful scars, on critical veins”

We got scars on our future hearts

But we never look back

No, we never look back.

We’re building it up

I’m burning down every bridge we make

To break it back down

I cannot spend another night in this home

So I run, hide and tear myself up

Start again with a brand new name

And eyes that see into infinity.

As I run through glass in the street

‘Cause this is a wasteland, my only retreat

Everybody wants to go to heaven

But nobody wants to die

But if we die at the same time does it still scare you?

I can fear death no longer

I’ve died a thousand times

With heaven above you, there’s hell over me.

Make me a promise here, tonight love like a tidal wave

Don’t try to fight the storm

You’ll tumble overboard

Tides will bring me back to you

Hold me close,

Don’t let go watch me burn

I am powerless.

Salt my wounds but I can’t heal the way

I feel about you.

You told me yes, you held me high

And I believed when you told that lie

Such a beautiful lie to believe in

I played soldier, you played king

And struck me down, when I kissed that ring

Like an army, falling.

One by one.

You lost that right, but you let me down

So when you fall, I’ll take my turn

As your blazes burn, strike a match make it last

We’ll start a fire that shines a light in the dark.

It’s time to forget the past

To wash away what happened last when I ruled the world

With these hands I shook the heavens to the ground

I held the key to the kingdom

Because I built these walls to watch them crumbling down

Can’t you see that we all fall down sometimes?

One final fight for this tonight

With knives and pens we made our plight.

Tell me would you kill to save a life?

Tell me would you kill to prove you’re right?

Or have me to live a lie…

Take care!
