Atreyu The Squeeze

Sometimes it feels like the juice is just one, hell of a squeeze.

I’m wringing it out my hands, drinking in my agony.

I love this shit and I hate this shit, I need it just to survive.

I’ve served my time, I’ve earned my keep, and now I’m taking what’s mine

(And only I can stop me)

[Chorus:]

So what is it that you were fighting for?

Is it something that’s worth dying for?

Look me in the eyes, don’t tell me.

Is it in your heart, what your striving for?

A painful lesson learned is worth so much more (so much more).

Can you open up your eyes and see?

All of our lives we ask ourselves is this really what’s meant for us,

take a cold hard look at youself, it takes heart to face your reality.

I can, I cannot give two shits about your self doubt, when it’s time to rise

I won’t sell myself out (I won’t sell myself out).

[Chorus]

And doubt falls away, like pages in a good book like an autumn leaf’s decay.

And doubt falls away, like sand in an hourglass the end of a perfect day.

And doubt falls away, like pages in a good book like an autumn leaf’s decay.

And doubt falls away, like sand in an hourglass

[Solo]

[Chorus]

Atreyu Doomsday

Go

A rush of blood

To my head leaves me winded and wanting

To feel the weakness in my body

Beaten and crushed like my soul

I walked the streets flirting death

But I never kissed back

I’m so lucky so cursed so fucked up

But that’s the way that it goes

Its the ebb and the flow

I wish that I could give you my time

Give you my time

Seems that doomsday has come early this year

The last angel has gone

I can’t remember the last time I cried

The last angel has gone home

The memories stacking up

And they pull at my guts

What do I have to do to end it

The better days hacked away

Leaving me only pain

This regret is never ending

But in the blink of an eye

This life passes you by

I wish that I could give you my time

Give you my time

Seems that doomsday has come early this year

The last angel has gone

I can’t remember the last time I cried

The last angel has gone home

I can’t remember

I can’t remember

I can’t remember the last time I cried

Seems that doomsday has come early this year

The last angel has gone

I can’t remember the last time I cried

The last angel has gone home

Atreyu Creature

Go

Run away

In Distress

Try To Hide

From What’s Creeping And Crawling And Stabbing Within

Try To Deny

The Turmoil Inside

If You Fight Yourself Hard Enough You’ll Never Win

Any Ounce Of Serenity

Or A Calm Hope At Best

(Or A Calm Hope At Best)

Can leave you heaving on the floor

Gasping for breath (Are You Gasping For Breath?)

To Be Left On The Floor Gasping For Breath!

[Chorus:]

You’re either the person you are

Or The Person Your Trying, Trying, Trying, Trying To Be

Don’t let the outside sway too far

From where you want to be

And at any cruel moments Of This

You Can ruin The Best

Where’s Your Body is Brutally Pressed

Against The Confines Of Your tense Flesh

And If You Close Your Eyes Tight Enough

Then None Of The Bad Can Get In [x2]

And If You Close Your Eyes Tight Enough

Then None Of The Light Can Get In (Then None Of The Light Can Get In)

Boom

You scream as the light hits you

It radiates though out your whole soul

Boom

The pain is clarity

It cleanses, and if it still fucking hurts than you still fucking know

That You Are Still Alive

That You Are Still In Control

If you would only take hold

Boom

The day with both hands

A death grip

And a good chance to outlive your past

You are living free

Where You Will Be Free [x2]

[Chorus x2]

Atreyu Bleeding Mascara

Go!

Yea!

A wraith with an angel’s body,

A demon with a smile of gold,

You soul-sucker!

I won’t become like you,

A killer with the perfect weapons,

Crystal eyes,

And a heart of coal.

You soul-sucker!

I won’t lose myself in you.

Look how pretty she is, when she falls down

Now there is no beauty in, bleeding mascara

Lips are quivering, like a withering rose

She’s back again!

What the fuck do you think love means?

It’s much more than words and feelings,

Sucking, me dry!

Is my marrow that sweet?

Your dead lovers have left a trail of broken hearts and misspent hopes,

Sucking, them dry!

Does their marrow taste of sweetness, sweetness?

I hope you choke

[Guitar Solo]

Look how pretty she is, when she falls down,

Now there is no beauty in, bleeding mascara,

Lips are quivering, like a withering rose,

She’s back again!

She’s back a…

She’s back again!

She’s back.

Atreyu Reckless

(I’m living recklessly)

(I’m living recklessly)

A black hole, a raging river

The void inside of me

Compelling me, driving me, I’m incomplete

Molding me, holding me up on my fate

There’s something about

The wind in the trees

It’s haunting to me

Despair in the air, anxiety on the breeze

There’s something about

The sound of the waves

It holds me under

It never takes

It’s getting the best of me, I’m living recklessly

A black hole, a raging river

The void inside of me

Compelling me, driving me, I’m incomplete

Molding me, holding me up on my fate

I’m living recklessly

I’m living recklessly

This hideous creation, self made

Beautiful inspiration, I’m plagued

(Day by day)

I’m hostage to my own creation

(Day by day)

I’m possessed, an abomination

Somewhere beyond

And past the point of nothing left

It will fuel me on

It will give me a new breath, go

And from the pages

Of ancient prophecy

A mythical plague

Propels my destiny

The betrayer of man

Forced a quest for certainty

Never asking myself

What beats inside of me

Never asking my soul

What hides inside of me

I won’t break so easily

I choose my own direction

I can’t stop (No)

Can’t stop my evolution

I can’t stop (No)

Can’t stop this revolution

I can’t stop (No)

Can’t stop my evolution

I can’t stop (No)

Can’t stop this revolution

Go

Atreyu Honor

Resolute a stance of defiance

Always teetering on the brink

Nothing can hold you back when

When you’re not holding back a thing

Open arms we embrace tomorrow

Closed fists, tarnishing today

We’re not afraid to open our mouths and scream

We believe in what we say

[Chorus:]

Like a whisper to the dusk

An oath against the shadows

Denying the dark

Fight fight fight ’til the break of dawn

Like a prayer unto the dawn

In arms against the shadows

Destroying the dark

Fight fight fight ’til the break of dawn

Covered in sweat and blood

Yet still our heads held high

Actions have consequences

When you live for foolish pride

Been careful not to lose ourselves

Stand together one passion, one hate

We believe in a better tomorrow

We believe in what we say

[Chorus:]

Like a whisper to the dusk

An oath against the shadows

Denying the dark

Fight fight fight ’til the break of dawn

Like a prayer unto the dawn

In arms against the shadows

Destroying the dark

Fight fight fight ’til the break of dawn

Fight fight fight ’til the break of dawn

We’ll fight out battles we’ll wage our wars

Settle the scores with honor and blood

We’ll wear our scars like medals of hope

Like medals of hope

Like medals of hope

We’ll fight out battles we’ll wage our wars

Settle the scores with honor and blood

We’ll wear our scars like medals of hope

Like medals of hope

Like medals of hope

[Chorus:]

Like a whisper to the dusk

An oath against the shadows

Denying the dark

Fight fight fight ’til the break of dawn

Like a prayer unto the dawn

In arms against the shadows

Destroying the dark (whisper to the dusk)

In arms against the shadows

Destroying the dark (whisper to the dusk)

In arms against the shadows

Destroying the dark (whisper to the dusk)

Fight fight fight ’til the break of dawn

Fight fight fight ’til the break of dawn

Fight fight fight ’til the break of dawn

Fight fight fight ’til the break of dawn

Atreyu Ex’s And Oh’s

You took me home

I drank too much

‘Cause of you my liver turned to dust

Cold rust taste

A cruel creeping cold pain

Do you understand what I mean?

When you feel your soul drop to the floor

Like a hole

Like an open bleeding sore

Then you’ll have bled like I bled

And you’ll have wept as I’ve wept

Suck me down, it’s time to rock and roll

Let’s hit the bar, let’s lose control

One false move, you took me home

One false move, you’re all alone

But it looks so good and it feels so nice

I paid the price

I’ll cut you out just to hear you scream,

Get away from, get away from me

And I can feel my heartbeat racing

As I realize what I must do

Get away from,

Get away from,

Get away from you

I should have turned and ran like hell

Last time I got the taste of you

I should have turned and ran like hell

And I’ll see we’re through

I should have turned and ran like hell

Last time I got the taste of you

I should have turned and ran like hell

And I’ll see we’re through

And I’ll see we’re through

You fell upon me like a plague

Weakness, sweet weakness

But I digress…

After all this…

You’re just like all the rest

Suck me down

It’s time to rock and roll

Let’s hit the bar, let’s lose control

One false move, you took me home

One false move, you’re all alone

Atreyu Dinosaurs Became Extinct

You had anger pulsed rage

Unexplored pathways; limitless boundaries

A voice above the dim screaming so loud

And now you are the masses

You used to run so fast

Where were you going? (NO WHERE!)

I’ve seen the path you took; it leads in circles (COUNTER PRODUCTIVE!)

Exhausted by your slavery, you are broken (NOTHING NEW!)

Preach words you no longer believe in, your time is gone

Stale

Words are empty as your heart

Your lies breed hatred and contempt

In your grasping, we won’t help as you’re consumed into nothing

Your lies defeat your purpose

Your purpose is only lies

Atreyu Dilated

Yesterday I forgot to breathe for like the 6th time this week.

Maybe it was the pink cloud strafed sky that changed my mind and brought me back

Seems like every day it’s kill or be killed…

With all this anger there is no time to inhale and progress

And catch the smell of something that you once knew.

Have you ever stopped raised your face up to the sun and screamed

Let it out exhale the pain

That strangulates your soul, when will I be free

My lungs take in the fragrance of remorse, what is the cost, am I living,

If you let your lungs fill up with pain then you will drown in your own regret.

My arms feel so numb my heart palpitates missing a beat.

The blood freezing in my veins. the taste of rust in my mouth.

So today I just threw it all away

Though the light burns my eyes I will not be blind,

If you blink you could miss so much. please don’t ever close your eyes

Atreyu Who Died

Who died in the systematic procress that we call life

Each indiscriminate event leading itself to the total destruction

The total nihilation of the beauty and spark of mankinds history

Each failure is so symbolic of whats past and what yet left to be

Un-dead or am I reall dying

Whos to say that this is eternity

Devoid of serenity

Brings us closer to a label of hell

Here we go are all we all dead

Whats the stop, wheres the end

Whats the stop, where do I end

Save me from my sins

Save us from the demons within

With another gone in this war to stay afloat

In this turmoil known as daily life breaking human spirit

Lack of love abundance of dusgust

Whos dead am I dead

What is death

Whose to say that this is life?

Oh god the pain of the response

No reaction or are we indifferent

Well whos will save us or are we already saved

Well whos to say we need to be saved anyway.
