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?
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 the 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 crumbling 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…“
