The Letter Black Invisible

You’re broken down inside

But won’t give up the fight

These empty eyes I see

Are staring back at me

If you pull me out, I won’t let you down

Invisible

You’re beautiful

Walking through this world we call our home

Invisible

Wont let you go

Now I know I’m starting to feel you

My failure makes me hate

Am I already late

And every day I crave

The touch of your embrace

But now I see, what you mean to me

Invisible

You’re beautiful

Invisible

Just like me

The Letter Black Branded

You buried your past so don’t come dig up mine

Why even bother to ask when you’ve already made up your mind

Go ahead label me without a second look

Just another made up fable in your storybook

Every twist and turn is a lesson you’ve yet to learn

I won’t let you tell me who I am

You try so hard to keep me

Branded by your lies missing thorns that paralyze

Give me something better than your broken scarlett letter

Save your breath and judge yourself

Branded by your lies missing thorns that paralyze

Give me something better than your broken scarlett letter

Save your breath and judge yourself

With your cold whisper let the games begin

While the weight of your deception is breaking from within

Go ahead label me without a second look

Just another made up fable in your storybook

Every twist and turn is a lesson you’ve yet to learn

I won’t let you tell me who I am

You try so hard to keep

Branded by your lies missing thorns that paralyze

Give me something better than your broken scarlett letter

Save you breath and judge youself

Branded by your lies missing thorns that paralyze

Give me something better than your broken scarlett letter

Save your breath and judge yourself

Open you eyes this truth will never die

You only hate what you don’t understand

You think you know me but you don’t know who I am

Branded by your lies missing thorns that paralyze

Give me something better than your broken scarlett letter

Save your breath and judge yourself

Branded by your lies missing thorns that paralyze

Give me something better than your broken scarlett letter

Save your breath and judge yourself

Save your breath and judge yourself

Save your breath and judge yourself

The Letter Black Rebuild

Piece by piece I am shedding my skin

Leaving trails of the damage within

Been around I have played the victim

I have walked my plank and I’ve fallen in

I’ve fallen in

Lift me up and tear me down

If that’s what it takes to rebuild

Throwing out these broken pieces

And salvage what’s left of my soul

(‘Cause I knew no wrong)

Can you hear me now

From that water far beyond

On and on

Could it be the luck of the draw?

Or is it the fate if us all?

Take myself into my own hands

Or go into the light on your command

Lift me up and tear me down

If that’s what it takes to rebuild

Throwing out these broken pieces

And salvage what’s left of my soul

(‘Cause I knew no wrong)

Can you here me now

From that water far beyond

Could it be the luck of the draw?

Or is it the fate of us all?

Lift me up and tear me down

If that’s what it takes to rebuild

Throwing out the broken pieces

And salvage what’s left of my soul

(‘Cause I knew no wrong)

Can you hear me now

From that water far beyond

I need you to hear me

(‘Cause I knew no wrong)

Can you hear me now

From that water far beyond

The Letter Black Useless Alibis

Don’t let your heart mistake it

Don’t think you can try to fake it

Where can you go no one you know can see the truth between their lies

Tearing you up you locked it out

Emotions start to break away

Forget the past hold on to me

To me

Don’t look for answers in those lies

Don’t look for sorrow in your cries

Don’t look for useless alibis

Just look into my eyes

There’s no mistake your twisted ways will complicate and seal your fate

Your compromise is your demiseso say a pray and say goodbye

You will not need to search anymore

Anymore

Don’t look for answers in those lies

Don’t look for sorrow in your cries

Don’t look for useless alibis

Just look into my eyes

There is a past

Don’t look back

Take back what once was yours

No one but you can change this

Have faith now in yourself

Don’t look for answers in those lies

Don’t look for sorrow in your cries

Don’t look for useless alibis

Just look into my eyes

Don’t look for answers in those lies

Don’t look for sorrow in your cries

Don’t look for useless alibis

Just look into my eyes

The Letter Black Smothering Walls

Another day is laid to waste crippled by my fallen grace

I’m on my knees again, my soul is wearing thin

Searching for some clarity deep within this misery

There’s no one else to blame, so I scream out your name

Lift me up so I can tear down

These smothering walls

Break those ribs

Watch ’em all fall

Conquering these demons suffocating reason

In this internal cell

Give me strength

Deliver me from myself

I can hear your call breaking down these smothering walls

My innocence is laid to rest

The ashes of my own excess and only guilt remains

A shadow of my chain

Temptation cuts straight to the core an open wound I can’t ignore

But now I recognize this blessing in disguise

Lift me up so I can tear down

These smothering walls

Break those ribs

Watch ’em all fall

Conquering these demons suffocating reason

In this internal cell

Give me strength

Deliver me from myself

I can hear your call breaking down these smothering walls

Deliver me

Deliver me

Deliver me

Deliver me

These smothering walls

Break those ribs

Watch ’em all fall

Conquering these demons suffocating reason

In this internal cell

Give me strength

Deliver me from myself

I can hear your call breaking down these smothering walls

Breaking down these smothering walls

The Letter Black Hanging On By A Thread

My past has followed me and

I just can’t get away

I’m not the same as I was

Leaving my disarray

Take me just as I am

(I’m broken down) (I’m calling out)

Pull me into your arms

(I’m hanging on, to every word)

(I’m holding on, to every breath)

Save me from losing myself

I’m hanging on by a thread

Can you see who I am

Underneath my scars

I’m afraid to fall

So I’m holding on to you

No I won’t let go

I’m hanging on by a thread

I still can hardly believe

The person I once was

I’m trying so hard to change

Help me work through my flaws

I’ll never need

I’ll never want

With you, with me

I’m so complete

I’ll never run

I’ll never hide

With you right here

I’m safe inside

The Letter Black Sick Charade

I’m finally sick of your tongue

You suck the air from my lungs

Leave me with nothing to say

Twist every truth till it bleeds

Spread the dirt, plant the seeds

Don’t think, don’t blink, just obey, obey

Just another sick charade

If you don’t know what we’re fighting for

Then I wont follow anymore

Disappear, behind the mask you’ve made

My eyes are wide open now

I can see you through your sick charade

Your fairy tales’ full of lies

Prey ignorance on the wise

You spread it like a disease

Throw your opinions away

Now just repeat what they say

While you stay down on your knees

Just another sick charade

If you don’t know what we’re fighting for

Then I wont follow anymore

Disappear, behind the mask you’ve made

My eyes are wide open now

I can see you through your sick charade

We’re not too weak

To raise our fists

‘Cause ignorance like this

We won’t be silenced

We won’t stay quiet

‘Cause ignorance like this

If you don’t know what we’re fighting for

Then I wont follow anymore

Disappear, behind the mask you’ve made

My eyes are wide open now

I can see you through your sick charade

We’re not too weak

To raise our fists

‘Cause ignorance like this

The Letter Black Rock’s Not Dead

Rock’s not dead

You know rock’s not dead

No

Woah you’re so popular, you’re the next thing

They’re going to love you, set the countdown to 15

They’re gonna fix you up, polish everything

They’ll put the words in your mouth and tell you what to sing

Make ’em dance baby, make ’em lose control

All the fame in the world won’t ever make you whole

You’re just the latest trend, climbing up the charts

Keep singing to their feet while I speak to their hearts

To all the kids in the black t-shirts

In the middle of the pit, living ’til it hurts

It’s time to raise those fists and bang your head

Rock’s not dead

To the back of the class, tattoo, nose ring

To all the freaks who wouldn’t change a thing

Stand up now, let me hear you scream

Rock’s not dead

Here come the paparazzi, here come the headlines

Your 15 minutes have you begging for a rewind

They’re gonna tame you, then try to blame you

They’ll change your style, change your name but it’s the same you

Make ’em dance baby, make ’em lose control

All the fame in the world won’t ever make you whole

You’re just the latest trend, climbing up the charts

Keep singing to their feet while I speak to their hearts

To all the kids in the black t-shirts

In the middle of the pit, living ’til it hurts

It’s time to raise those fists and bang your head

Rock’s not dead

To the back of the class, tattoo, nose ring

To all the freaks who wouldn’t change a thing

Stand up now, let me hear you scream

Rock’s not dead

To all the kids in the black t-shirts

In the middle of the pit, living ’til it hurts

It’s time to raise those fists and bang your head

Rock’s not dead

To the back of the class, tattoo, nose ring

To all the freaks who wouldn’t change a thing

Stand up now, let me hear you scream

Rock’s not dead

Rock’s not dead

Rock’s not dead

Rock’s not dead

Rock’s not dead

The Letter Black Shattered

No longer waiting for redemption in your eyes

No longer trading all the truth I kept inside

So take you broken arrows shoot ’em in the sky

Now you’re the one who’s weak still wondering why

You left me shattered

But I’m so over it

I put back the pieces just to see if they still fit

You left me shattered

But I’m stronger from this I’m doing just fine

And now you’re only wasting your time

No longer shackled by your words that keep me down

No longer breathing in the fear you spread around

Sober you assaulted me soon you will find out

I can’t be broken I hate to let you down

You left me shattered

But I’m so over it

I put back the pieces just to see if they still fit

You left me shattered

But I’m stronger from this I’m doing just fine

And now you’re only wasting your time

You tried to make believe you’re the best part of me

You words cutting me in two

But now I realize I gave you love you gave me lies

The worst part about me was you

Shattered

But I’m so over it

I’m doing just fine

You left me shattered

But I’m so over it

I put back the pieces to see if they still fit

You left me shattered

But I’m stronger from this I’m doing just fine

And now you’re only wasting

Now you’re only wasting your time

You left me shattered

You left me shattered
