Oceans Ate Alaska Birth-Marked

Just a child

Who longed to see you smile

But you tore my heart apart

And forced me into the wild

Just a child

Made to carry this burden

Made to carry this burden

Cast into darkness from the day I was born

Crying out for help but beat to the floor

You never loved me

You never loved me

Battered and broken

Left stripped of emotion

These wounds go far beyond skin deep

What have you done to me?

What have you done to me?

Starved of the love I craved so desperately

Hush little baby don’t you say a fucking word

You make my skin fucking crawl

My innocence consumed by fear

Drowning in waterfalls of tears

Yet through a tyranny of words

There’s still love here

Can’t you see that there is still love here?

Battered and broken

Left stripped of emotion

These wounds go far beyond skin deep

What have you done to me?

What have you done to me?

Starved of the love I craved so desperately

Just a child

The one that you defiled

I bear the scars from my past

A life that you had exiled

Just a child

Born condemned to rejection

Waste away

Though you gave me life, you’re fucking dead to me

Waste away

Oceans Ate Alaska Downsides

Life’s not as bad as you make it out to be.

Reach out… the world is at your feet.

You can’t dwell on your feelings,

In a city that never sleeps.

Stop dreaming.

Start believing in yourself.

Wake the fuck up, break through the walls.

Drop your fears.

Control was never lost, it’s always been here.

I’m walking on thin lines of broken glass every night.

You have no idea, you have no idea…

Of all the fucked up shit that runs through my mind.

Keep your head up son and look on the bright side.

Stop weighing on the downsides in life, and you’ll be just fine, you’ll be just fine.

In this concrete jungle, you’ve got to fight to stay alive, burn bridges in order to survive.

Opportunity is your only ally, and shut your mouth it’s your only alibi.

But the worst part about this is I can’t really describe it.

These problems and issues – are not mine.

I can’t help you, it’s up to you.

Stop dreaming and start believing.

Show no weakness and hide your feelings.

I’m walking on thin lines of broken glass every night.

You have no idea, you have no idea…

Of all the fucked up shit that runs through my mind.

Keep your head up son and look on the bright side.

Stop weighing on the downsides in life, and you’ll be just fine, you’ll be just fine.

Oceans Ate Alaska Escapist

You’re my enigma

Why claim another life

When you’re still ruling

A sea of corrupt minds

Feed from my weakness

I fear my hands are tied

Afflicted over and over again

This vicious cycle, it eats away

The very soul of this person you lead astray

Fighting this with every breath I breathe

When the smoke fills up my lungs

It’s so hard, it’s just so hard to see what’s underneath

I lust for strength to just come clean

Or bite my tongue and let it bury me

I know there’s a hell

Cause you’re keeping me here

You’re keeping me here

You’re keeping me here

Fighting this with every breath I breathe

When the smoke fills up my lungs

It’s so hard, it’s just so hard to see what’s underneath

I lust for strength to just come clean

Or bite my tongue and let it bury me

You’re my enigma

Why claim another life

When you’re still ruling

A sea of corrupt minds

Feed from my weakness

I fear my hands are tied

Afflicted over and over again

Fuck

I know I could have been a better me

I know I could have been a better me

Oceans Ate Alaska Over The Edge

Conjured from the very thing I despise.

Like a cancer it grows inside.

You always had the goddamn wit.

With just a flick of the wrist, to pop the button and push her buttons and send her over the edge.

I’ll remember this to the end.

You and your goddamn wit, pushed her over the edge.

Contagious in every light, and I can’t stand the sight of myself.

Living this life in skin I’m not worthy to wear.

As the memories fade, I can feel myself beginning to change.

Even in my sleep there’s no escaping.

Voices plot and plunder, they’re saturating my mind with words of wisdom.

That destroy the world which I once called my kingdom.

With just the flick of the wrist.

You went and pushed her over the edge.

You and your goddamn wit.

I’ll remember this to the end.

You and your goddamn wit, pushed her over the edge.

Oceans Ate Alaska Hikari

Down foreign paths and uncharted shores

The beauty lies within these wars

Overcome the wilderness, with countless failures

For I’m not living just to exist

I’m on the verge of discovering this person I’m meant to be

Im on the verge of discovering

This person I’m meant to be

Im on the verge of discovering

My calling

Sometimes loosing yourself is the only way back home

Believe in me, its all you need

True happiness

Is the greatest discovery

Forget the ones who tell you how to feel

It’s crystal clear once you know it’s real

Been here all along, right in front of you

Stood in resounding opacity

It’s the greatest discovery

Oceans Ate Alaska Mirage

Everything… reminds me of you.

So much so, that there’s nothing I can do – to escape, but shout your name.

These echoes are the only thing that keep me sane (that keep me sane).

And I’m trying my hardest to forget.

Not to let your face, mirage inside my head…

These smiles come few and far between… these days.

I can overcome this, but the numbness, I’ve endured for so long.

It’s hard to break the mould.

I can barely keep my head above the waves; but this hurt, it never fades.

It never fades!

I’ve endured this – for so long.

This pain – never fades.

A kaleidoscope of emotions, that changes with the wind.

When will I be free again?

This pain it never fades…

What more do you ask of me?

I bear the scars and a broken heart on my sleeve, that’s so heavy I cannot breathe.

So I beg you and I plea.

Just let me go, just set me free – because the pain it never fades.

Oceans Ate Alaska Lost Isles

I left behind streets paved with gold, to live a life in the dirt and the undergrowth.

I cut all ties, severed myself from what they called “the real life”.

Carved my path through stone, where am I now?

No one knows.

With new lungs to breathe and fresh eyes to see, I pity those too weak to not break free.

Living their life on old ideologies, that have been passed down for centuries.

Run free and see what you want to see.

Get lost along the way… Break free.

Forever searching for an open door, all I’ve known my whole life is how to run.

Through distant lands and foreign shore’s; to escape has been my only thought.

Raised by wolves into the wild. I am a son of the lost isle’s.

Raised by wolves into the wild. I am a son of the lost isle’s.

No rules, or religions.

Just a free world and my own decisions.

I’ve never been home…

I don’t belong anywhere.

I guess I’m homeless because home is where the heart is and I’ve never been home.

Forever searching for an open door, all I’ve known my whole life is how to run.

Through distant lands and foreign shore’s; to escape has been my only thought.

Raised by wolves into the wild. I am a son of the lost isle’s.

Oceans Ate Alaska Clocks

Youthful yet so blind,

We held the greatest treasure time.

Gave our hearts and sold our souls,

Convinced each other we’d last forever.

We had all the time in the world

Yet we aged so soon,

Watching the cold steal the love from our eyes…

Oh How It’s Time!

Oh How It’s Time!

I’m killing time while time slowly kill us

We’ll always wish we didn’t waste away,

Away the days.

Were wasting away!

When our hearts were young

An our bodies were pure!

And there was fewer days gone by than to be had…

Fragile and weak we shelter from the cold.

Our Reflections have turned grey and cold.

Sea green veins under paper thin skin.

We existed but never lived…

We took time for granted and payed the price!

Oh! Bury me now

Oh! Just bury me now…

I’m killing time while time slowly kill us

We’ll always wish we didn’t waste away,

Away the days.

Were wasting away!

When our hearts were young!

An our bodies were pure!

And there was fewer days gone by

Than to be had!

We took them for granted!

So we payed the price!

I’m killing time while time slowly kill us

We’ll always wish we didn’t waste away,

Away the days.

Oceans Ate Alaska Taming Lions

They walk among us, with heads held high.

The overseers of all.

From their high thrown, we’re nothing but a grain of sand.

In a sea of thousands.

We’ll always find a way, to cease this silence.

You’re no match for me,

cus while you’re busy counting sheep

I’m taming lions in my sleep.

Like a pack of wolves

I’ll hunt you down, single you out,

and claim back our crown.

There’s only room for one ruler, upon this horizon;

And I’ve made my own rules.

Banished to the darkness, where no one can hear you.

Vanquish the king!

You’re no match for me,

Cause while you’re busy counting sheep

I’m taming lions in my sleep.

Like a pack of wolves

I’ll hunt you down, single you out,

And claim back our crown.

We’ve made this town our own.

They’re calling us out, singing so loud.

So step aside, for tonights our night,

And were singing our hearts out.

Oceans Ate Alaska Covert

You know I have this unrelenting fear

That I’m wasting every minute, every hour that I’m living here

I won’t ask for sympathy

Just the understanding that I can’t change that part of me

I’m just so scared to admit

Act like I don’t give a shit

Hide behind this masquerade

Hide behind this masquerade

So sick of being like this

Trapped in this ignorant bliss

The very fabric

Of my being

Is fucking torn

You know I have this unrelenting fear

That I’m fighting the days

But I’m losing the years

It’s calling my name

Every day is the same

Except this voice in my head

Is merely fuelling the flames

It’s calling my name

Just show me what it means for me to feel again

It’s calling my name

So take me away

From this godforsaken place

These empty eyes and fake smiles made me believe

I am defective, my own worst enemy

Put up these walls to hide my secret

My deepest ‘cus I know you won’t believe it

You won’t believe

I’m just so scared to admit

Act like I don’t give a shit

Hide behind this masquerade

Hide behind this masquerade

So sick of feeling like this

Trapped in this ignorant bliss

To live to like this

Trapped in this ignorant bliss
