Egypt Central Different

Used to live my life for you

Until my soul got tired

Did all I was supposed to do

I could fool a liar

[Pre-chorus]

Threw it all away

Through it all to find redemption

Gave it all away

Gave it all to who would listen

[Chorus]

That’s the price I paid

For being different

And I walk this road alone

That’s the price I paid

For being different

I can call this life my own

Used to be a part of you

Until that part was taken

I used to see your point of view

Until my faith was shaken

[Pre-chorus]

Threw it all away

Through it all to find redemption

Gave it all away

Gave it all to who would listen

[Chorus]

That’s the price I paid

For being different

And I walk this road alone

That’s the price I paid

For being different

I can call this life my own

Running in the sun to seek what I’ll find

Crossing your path that intersects mine

Trapped in a scene that only seems real

Confronted by dreams that I can now feel

My fronts have all failed and been stripped away

We all look the same at the end of the day

Given up once I’ll take it back twice

Will it ever cease this is my flight

Slow me down to breathe

Never will I break this fate could not faze me

Never could I shake the things that you gave me

My heart does not see

Concrete burns and skies will come down

But nothing can take the focus I’ve found

Used to live my life for you

Used to be a part of you

[Chorus]

That’s the price I paid

For being different

And I walk this road alone

That’s the price I paid

For being different

I can call this life my own

Egypt Central Surrender

Breathe in and breathe out

The venom that you have been given

Dig in and crawl out

Make your decision

Are you still with me

Or did you lose your faith when it was shaken

Are you still with me

Do you still believe

This is a call to all the lost

A note to those misunderstood

I’ll get your point across

I won’t give in

I’ll never surrender

I’ve been torn down

Rebuilding the trust of the fallen

Worn thin with doubt

Follow your calling

Are you still with me

Or did you lose your faith when it was shaken

Are you still with me

Do you still believe

This is a call to all the lost

A note to those misunderstood

I’ll get your point across

I won’t give in

I’ll never surrender

I need to dig in

Not scratching the surface

But tearing a hole

Revisit my purpose

Get back what I sold

Are you still with me

Do you still believe

This is a call to all the lost

A note to those misunderstood

I’ll get your point across

I won’t give in

I’ll never surrender

This is a call to all the lost

This is a call to all the lost

This is a call to all the lost

I won’t give in

I’ll never surrender

Egypt Central Goodnight

A light comes through the glass

And shines in on the past

The day you left too fast

The day I saw you last

A faded photograph

The time we thought we had

And I just want you back

Goodnight, goodnight

This pain won’t last forever

I’ll bury this, bury this inside

Please don’t say goodbye

Goodnight, goodnight

It doesn’t mean forever

I’ll bury this, bury this inside

It’s my last kiss goodnight

Your there in black and gray

Your always in the frame

It’s like you always say

Things never stay the same

A faded photograph

The time we thought we had

And I just want you back

Goodnight, goodnight

This pain won’t last forever

I’ll bury this, bury this inside

Please don’t say goodbye

Goodnight, goodnight

It doesn’t mean forever

I’ll bury this, bury this inside

It’s my last kiss goodnight

If I could go back in time

If I could take back words

I swear I could save your life

No one knows how bad this hurts

Taken too soon

You know I lost the best in me

To go on without you

I lay you down to sleep

Goodnight, goodnight

This pain won’t last forever

I’ll bury this, bury this inside

Please don’t say goodbye

Goodnight, goodnight

It doesn’t mean forever

I’ll bury this, bury this inside

It’s my last kiss goodnight

Egypt Central Just Another Lie

For all the times that I’ve done wrong

You’ve paid it all back twice to me

Why don’t we just get along?

This life was built on unity

Open up, you won’t change

You’ll only stay

‘Cause you wont change (you’ll never change)

And I won’t stay (I can’t stay)

It’s just another lie to make me believe

It’s just another lie to make me believe in you

I’ve done all that I can do

To resurrect your hopeless point of view

I can’t stand to see your face

I can’t stand to watch this got to waste

Open up, you won’t change

You’ll only stay

‘Cause you wont change (you’ll never change)

And I won’t stay (I can’t stay)

It’s just another lie to make me believe

It’s just another lie to make me believe in you

It’s just another lie to make me believe

I see you deceive to get what you need

Honestly I could never understand why people wear a mask to cover up the inside

In the end it’s you and your reflection

Fuck this, I’m sick of this deception

You made me believe I made you believe, now you can see

‘Cause you wont change (you’ll never change)

And I won’t stay (I can’t stay)

It’s just another lie to make me believe

It’s just another lie to make me believe in you

It’s just another lie, it’s just another lie to make me believe in you

Egypt Central Down In Flames

This separation makes a fool of you and I

Blank stares and credit cards allege the great divide

You think you’re safe if you don’t ever choose a side

Are you sheep or wolves in disguise

Are you sheep or wolves in disguise

Wake Up!!

It’s now or never

You are all asleep

It’s now or never

Wake up your generation

Wake up and save the nation

Wake up determination

I am afraid we’re going down

Afraid we’re going down in flames

I miss the soldiers of a new forgotten war

And I miss the friends that I can not see anymore

We want a victory but I cannot ignore

Your self inflicted genocide

You are all asleep

It’s now or never

You are all asleep

It’s now or never

Wake up your generation

Wake up and save the nation

Wake up determination

I am afraid we’re going down

Afraid we’re going down in flames

Wake up your generation

Wake up and save the nation

Wake up determination

I am afraid we’re going down

Afraid we’re going down in flames

Wake up your generation

Wake up and save the nation

Wake up determination

I am afraid we’re going down

Afraid we’re going down in flames

Egypt Central White Rabbit

Your magic white rabbit

Has left it’s writing on the wall

We follow like Alice

And just keep diving down the hole

You can’t fix your broken promise

Our ties have come undone

I will not be used to be battered and abused

It’s the reason why I choose to cut my losses

Your lies fool no one

Your magic white rabbit

Your white room straight jacket

Your magic white rabbit

Has left it’s writing on the wall

We follow like Alice

And just keep diving down the hole

We’re falling and we’re losing control

Your pulling us and dragging us down this dead end road

We follow like Alice

And just keep diving down the hole

You can’t offer your poison to me

In your kingdom of filth

White Rabbit

Straight jacket

Your magic white rabbit

Has left it’s writing on the wall

We follow like Alice

And just keep diving down the hole

We’re falling and we’re losing control

Your pulling us and dragging us down this dead end road

We follow like Alice

And just keep diving down the hole

I won’t be pushed aside

I will be heard

I will get what I want

What I deserve

I won’t be pushed aside

I will be heard

I will get what I want

What I deserve

We’re falling and we’re losing control

Your pulling us and dragging us down this dead end road

Your magic white rabbit

Has left it’s writing on the wall

We follow like Alice

And just keep diving down the hole

We’re falling and we’re losing control

Your pulling us and dragging us down this dead end road

Your magic white rabbit

Has left it’s writing on the wall

We follow like Alice

And just keep diving down the hole

Diving down the hole

Egypt Central Locked And Caged

Stuck inside these same four walls I’ve seen for sixteen years

I’m calling out and no one hears nothing is as it appears

Time is gonna pass me by the days are getting short

I feel my patience wearing thin waiting for this to begin

Locked inside my cage

[Chorus]

Would you be there to let me out

I can’t take anymore

Just let me out

I can’t take anymore

Choking on my selfish pride it’s hard to swallow down

I swear I’d turn my life around if I could get out of this town

Every sacrifice I’ve made to help me get this far

I’m not about to turn away I don’t care how long it takes

Locked inside my cage

[Chorus]

Locked and caged

Egypt Central Home

Staring at an empty cup of understanding

Maybe you could fill it up and tell me why you left

I don’t want to be alone in this ocean

Of people passing by rushing toward the end

And I can see your soft reflection like a ghost in the mirror

And I would do whatever I could for a chance to have you here

[Chorus]

And be home again

Now that you’re gone I can see that I was wrong

Back in your arms I feel home again

Now that you’re gone I can see I was wrong

Back in your arms again, again

Even as the clouds roll by I swear they mock me

Cause every one that fills the sky turns into your face

Maybe it was heaven’s fault they lost an angel

I couldn’t hold on and I let her get away

And I can see your soft reflection like a ghost in the mirror

And I would do whatever it could for a chance to have you here

[Chorus]

And be home again

Now that you’re gone I can see that I was wrong

Back in your arms I feel home again

Now that you’re gone I can see I was wrong

Back in your arms again, again

Egypt Central 15 Minutes

There you sit distorting your reflection

But the lights around the mirror have all gone dim

Because you did whatever it took to make a connection

And you did whatever it took to make it in

For fifteen minutes of fame

What would you do

Who would you hurt

And who would you screw

Would you kill for the sake of making a name

For fifteen minutes of shame

You wear a mask but don’t know who’s behind it

You fear the face of who you really are

Because you did whatever it took to get invited

And you do whatever it takes to be a star

For fifteen minutes of fame

What would you do

Who would you hurt

And who would you screw

Would you kill for the sake of making a name

For fifteen minutes of shame

Fifteen minutes of fame

What would you do

Who would you hurt

And who would you screw

Would you kill for the sake of making a name

For fifteen minutes of shame

I know you think

That you were someone special

But your not

And you are the only one to blame

For fifteen minutes of fame

What would you do

Who would you hurt

And who would you screw

Would you kill for the sake of making a name

For fifteen minutes of shame

Fifteen minutes of fame

What would you do

Who would you hurt

And who would you screw

Would you kill for the sake of making a name

For fifteen minutes of shame

Egypt Central Taking You Down

I’ve had enough, I’m taking you down

Taking you down

You’ve been all up in my face

Out of line and out of place

Blurring views, distorting facts, every time I turn my back

I’ll make you know your position

Don’t talk, just shut up and listen

No way out, now you can’t play dumb

Get up get up and come get some

[Chorus]

I’ve had enough, I’m taking you down

Taking you down

I’ve had enough, I’m taking you down

Taking you down

I feel the hate that you breed

It’s the fix that feeds your greed

Set your bait, set your trap

Take a seat and watch me snap

I’ll shake the ground that you stand on

I’ll still be here when you’re long gone

This world is mine you can’t have it

It’s my turn to wreak havoc.

[Chorus]

Down, down I’ll take you down

Down I’ll take you down down

I’ll take you down
