Senses Fail DB Cooper

I’m leaving home

Above the clouds with silver wings

I feel my guts slowly drop as engines sing

My teeth are clenched

‘Cause gravity is defied

I’m at a place where I feel dead inside

I know I can’t take back what I never lent

‘Cause all my plans, crushed in the end

Desperate

As I slip the screws out from the seat

I need a way to breathe

The wind

Tears the fuselage from the tail piece

I hope it sets me free

With my nose pressed up to the window pane

I watch the lights as now they dance in rain

I breathe out to make a canvas for your name

I can’t relax my shoulders carry the blame

I know I can’t take back what I never lent

‘Cause all my plans, crushed in the end

Desperate

As I slip the screws out from the seat

I need a way to breathe

The wind

Tears the fuselage from the tail piece

I hope it sets me free

I look below and weigh the rip

And now the bag is up, I’ll be dropping weight

I’m diseased just like my father

He says it comes from my mother

I hope my son does not catch it

Look at what I have to do to survive

I hurt myself just to feel alive

I don’t know if I’ll make it back home

‘Cause I don’t know if there’s no hope left there

Everyone’s looking for someway

I am looking for the one way out

I’ve been wasting my time

Standing in line

And this is what life is all about

Desperate

As I slip the screws out from the seat

I need a way to breathe

The wind

Tears the fuselage from the tail piece

I hope it sets me free

Senses Fail Between The Mountains And The Sea

And do you ever ask yourself

If the person that you are

Is the person you were meant to be

Or were you too afraid to go that far?

‘Cause courage is to walk

Through the valley of our thoughts

And in the desert that you fear

Sit down with open ears

‘Cause we were made to wander

Between the mountain and the sea

This body is a vessel

To house eternity

So what are you gonna do

When everything you love is taken right away from you?

And what are you gonna do

Do not wait ’til angels sing

And don’t fear the unknown road

What is diamond once was coal

There is a devil in the cold dark streets

He leaves us starving and suffering

And there’s a weakness that we cannot see

For we all feel it, and it is deep

And there is nothing that will set us free

Except silence and inner peace

There is a passion that we all must seek

But we are silent, and we are weak

There is a devil in the cold dark streets

You got nothing to lose

You got nothing

Do not wait ’til angels sing

Do not wait ’til angels sing

And don’t fear the unknown road

Senses Fail Ghost Town

Senses Fail Lifeboats

I just want to feel alive.

And love myself from the in and the outside.

‘Cause every time that I start to feel whole,

I knock myself on the ground because it’s all that I’ve known

Just like the streets burn a hole through your shoe.

My soul has been worn out too,

I’m 25 and I still don’t fit in

Directionless, like a blind man painting

Mother I’m so sorry, I can’t go on like this.

The lifeboats are leaving with or without me.

What’s the point of falling in love?

If I don’t love myself.

What’s the point of being alive if all I want is out.

So I thought that it only feels right

To make the decisions that endanger my life.

Late late at night under black and blue moons.

I question in the reasons that I self-abuse.

I’m so pathetic.

It makes me sick.

There is no love.

There’s only this:

Just lust and lies, and selfishness.

A black hole where the sun once was.

I’m never falling back in love.

‘Cause it has never been enough.

Ever since I’ve been a young boy I was alone

Now that I’ve become a man, the feeling’s grown.

Through the therapy and through the pills, I can’t let go.

But what about the fuckin fact:

I’m still alone.

What do you do when you got nothing left?

Give up! Give up! And hope for the best!

I fell into the ocean, I and I feel sick,

Waiting on a nameless rescue ship.

When I’m so afraid

Of all that I can pass down?

With tears streaming down from my face

A father meant nothing to me

But I hope I mean something to you

Grab my hand, hold it tight, let the water take us tonight

Grab my hand, hold it tight, let the water take us tonight

How am I supposed to move

On when I’m so afraid

Of the loneliness that I feel

When the sun sets on your grave?

I guess the best thing I can do with my time

Is love every minute of life

When the fact is I’d rather curl up and die

I can’t breathe if you’re not alive

Grab my hand, hold it tight, let the water take us tonight

Senses Fail Life Is Not A Waiting Room

I stand alone on the verge of 24

I can not doubt, I’m left unsure

Everyone I know has a casket made

The plots picked out, the roads are paved

Do I still have time to make mistakes?

Is this the point where I bend or break?

Am I too far gone to medicate?

Is this a birth or is this a wake?

There was a part of me

That I lost when I was seventeen

I can’t get back

The innocence I gave to scenes

In between Jersey plays

Was just an act

I would slit my throat and blinded through my lies

Desperate I am matched with two black eyes

At the mouth of a river people sit

With concrete shoes ready to jump in

Do I still have time to chase my dreams?

Or did that pass, sail out and leave?

Is there still room for me to grow?

Or is this feud all that I know?

There was a part of me

That I lost when I was seventeen

I can’t get back

The innocence I gave to scenes

In between Jersey plays

Was just an act

Sometimes I want, to just give in

Accept the answers without a question

It’s easier, I must confess

To treat this life like it’s a waiting room for death

How can I make sense of this mess?

I’ll share my emptiness with a glass

It’s my best bet for happiness

There was a part of me

That I lost when I was seventeen

I can’t get back

The innocence I gave to scenes

In between Jersey plays

Was just an act

There was a part of me

That I lost when I was seventeen

Senses Fail Double Cross

While you’re watching from the window waiting

I’ve been spilling my guts out on the stage

I spent the best years of my life

Drinking myself to sleep at night

And now the glory days have all but faded

And everyone I used to know is jaded

Where is the passion that you used to have

When music was the only thing that you had?

All my pictures have faded over time

I burnt the negatives of you

What have I got here left to prove?

Cause all I got, all I really got, is this music that’s left in me

And all I want, all I really want, is a, a reason to believe

Some day I know that I’ll be fading

Everyone I used to know is getting

Afraid, afraid, afraid of getting older

Senses Fail Early Graves

I call to question, the things in question.

I think I think too much; I think I’m sure.

That that’s a problem and that’s a reason

Why I always fucking shut the door

On everyone I have ever loved before.

I’m willing to just shut myself down,

And let the good things go right under my door.

I finally found a reason I can open up to something more.

‘Cause I was always taking the salt from the sea,

To water down the soil that’s soaking deep.

I was suffocating something inside of me

When it just needed to breathe.

I would never dare call myself brave.

I have made a choice to walk my own way.

I would die than choose to stumble the roads unpaved,

Heading to an early grave.

But if I question, all this in questions [?]

Will that just take me back to where I came from?

‘Cause I don’t want to ever feel that way again, that way again.

‘Cause all that I got was a dead end heart

Desperately conserving, searching roads in the dark

For a spark to help me hit restart.

‘Cause everything I do will come back to me times two.

This is the first time that I’ve got something I don’t wanna lose.

‘Cause I was always taking the salt from the sea,

To water down the soil that’s soaking deep.

I was suffocating something inside of me

When it just needed to breathe.

I would never dare call myself brave.

I have made a choice to walk my own way.

I would die than choose to stumble the roads unpaved,

Heading to an early grave.

Into an early grave.

I feel like I have finally found the balance

To rebound, and the waves in the sound they surround me,

Like a net to catch me in the act.

In the case and event that the present presents challenges over my head.

‘Cause I was always taking the salt from the sea,

To water down the soil that’s soaking deep.

I was suffocating something inside of me

When it just needed to breathe.

I would never dare call myself brave.

I have made a choice to walk my own way.

I would die than choose to stumble the roads unpaved,

Heading to an early grave.
