Senses Fail Carry The Weight

I used to want to die but now I believe

Not in a distant god, there’s a love I found in me

I’d rather be awake and in pain than asleep

Singing as if no one can hear takes more courage than you think

I carried the weight in the only way I knew

I carried the weight in the only way I knew

I was scared enough to lie and say that I’m okay

When inside I was dying, so confused, so alone, so afraid

I hope you never know what it’s like to hide a piece of yourself inside

Or to be so fucking ashamed you’d rather kill yourself than be alive

I want to be alive

I carried the weight in the only way I knew

I want to be alive

I carried the weight in the only way I knew

I’m still scared but I’ve got courage to be

More vulnerable and one day free

Now my heart isn’t covered in concrete

I breathe, I breathe

No longer scared of the vulnerability

No longer scared of the person that I see

Senses Fail Champagne

You cant win, you cant win this one.

I’m standing up above the ropes so I can see.

So I’m sorry I’ve been such a mess

And I promise I will do my best.

I’ve purged myself, of all this pain

Like cheap, like cheap champagne

I’ve been fighting life on my knees, (Over and over)

I’m standing up above the ropes so I can see.

Somewhere I lost my hope.

I’ve been wasting so much time.

So I’m standing up, and I’m screaming out,

That there is love inside, oh there is love.

I’ve been fighting life on my knees, (Over and over)

I’m standing up above the ropes so I can see.

I’ve been fighting life on my knees, (Over and over)

I’m standing up above the ropes so I can see.

I’m standing up above the ropes,

And finally I am free to breathe.

And finally I am free to breathe

Now finally able to breathe

Now finally able to see

Above the ropes

Senses Fail Bite To Break Skin

So let me take this medicine

To quench my love for violent things

My swan song will

Be like a bullet laced in anger

As the razor cuts a soft spot

On your heel.

Tears rain from above.

So follow me into the sun,

And I will bleed, the poisons dry.

These bayonet scars never cease

To blind the light shed from the beast

And all we do is hate.

Good has lost it’s heart.

Do you see?

The life I lead?

So follow me into the sun,

And I will bleed, the poisons dry.

For you [x2]

(For you!) [x3]

Bite to break skin,

Don’t give the secret,

My stoic face,

Beaten with passion

The phoenix will die

Inside the fire storm

I am the son

So follow my footsteps.
