Wage War Stitch

Leave me in the dark with a hole for a heart

As low as I can get, burn the bridge, rip the stitch out

Pick it up

I can’t pretend like it’s all part of the plan

I can’t hide it, blindsided, I can’t fight it, it’s more than I can stand

Broken. But I guess you knew that it would be this way

Loose ends. Tie the knot and wait for your chance to run away (run away)

I could never make you stay, you’ll run away (run away)

I’ll always be your greatest mistake, so run away (run away)

Just another game that you played, you’ll run away (run away)

Three years in the making

But I guess we weren’t worth saving

We weren’t worth saving

Leave me in the dark with a hole for a heart

As low as I can get, burn the bridge, rip the stitch out

Guess I’ll play dead. It’s all in my head

To you I don’t exist. Call it bliss. Rip the stitch out

What?

Bitter to the core

Always want more

Take what you can get

But I’ll bet that is never enough

Is it?

Pull the knife out of my back

Let it all fade to black

Made it so clear

I think we’re done here

Bitter to the core

Always want more

Take what you can get

But I’ll bet that is never enough

Is it?

Pull the knife out of my back

Let it all fade to black

Made it so clear

I think we’re done here

Leave me in the dark with a hole for a heart

As low as I can get, burn the bridge, rip the stitch out

Guess I’ll play dead. It’s all in my head

To you I don’t exist. Call it bliss. Rip the stitch out

Leave me in the dark with a hole for a heart

As low as I can get, burn the bridge, rip the stitch out

Guess I’ll play dead. It’s all in my head

To you I don’t exist. Call it bliss. Rip the stitch out

You were the light I could never see in myself

I would’ve stood by you until the gates of hell

Wage War My Grave Is Mine To Dig

I run away from everything that’s good for me

When every voice that you hear is the same one

All you can think to do is run

Make no mistake I’m everything I say I hate

Hypocritical, lost individual, no longer worth your faith

I know I can be better than this

Masquerading has never done me justice

I am what I am

A boy not yet the man that I want to be

Despite what I have led you to believe

I’m nothing as I seem

No ground beneath my feet

I can’t seem to get away from me

This person in the mirror’s not the same one that I wanna be

Is there more than what I see?

Sometimes it’s hard to let go

When I don’t know what lies in front of me

Get away from me!

Death to self is much easier said than done

Death to self is much easier said than done

Pain is what has set me free

I had to go through Hell to find what’s best in me

Still think I can be better than this

Despite the weight that is my conscience

Life was never fair but I am never broke beyond repair

Still searching for any place that I can call my home

And even though I’m lost

I know I’m not alone

I can’t seem to get away from me

This person in the mirror’s not the same one that I wanna be

Is there more than what I see?

Sometimes it’s hard to let go

When I don’t know what lies in front of me

If I could change myself I would

But I don’t know where to begin

My grave is mine to dig

My grave is mine to dig

If I could change myself I would

But I don’t know where to begin

Wage War Indestructible

To all the ones who have helped me along the way

I owe a debt I could never repay

Carried on the shoulders of strangers

No room for doubt, lead by faith, never failure

You paved the way but to my dismay

The great unknown could be an early grave

On a long road with the end in our sights

Tragedy takes it away like a thief in the night

I pray it’s not over

Won’t remain broken, I’m looking for closure

I’m scared, didn’t think it’d come with a cost

That people would change, that lives could be lost

I’m having nightmares where fate leaves us for dead

Never imagined a price on our heads

I woke up screaming

I felt my heart sink in

I miss the days when I felt indestructible, indestructible

We’re veering over lines that shake me every time

I miss the days when I felt indestructible, indestructible

It wasn’t supposed to be like this

I lived in a world where darkness didn’t exist

Mortality is a beautiful thing

Embrace it, don’t waste it

You’re the one who pulls the strings

Heavy win, heavy loss

I’m moving forward (moving forward)

No matter what the cost

I woke up screaming

I felt my heart sink in

I miss the days when I felt indestructible, indestructible

We’re veering over lines that shake me every time

I miss the days when I felt indestructible, indestructible

Indestructible, indestructible

I still carry you with me

I woke up screaming

I felt my heart sink in

I miss the days when I felt indestructible, indestructible

So write this on my stone if I don’t make it home

I tried my best but I’m not indestructible, indestructible

Even through the darkest nights

All hope is not lost

All hope is not lost

Wage War Blueprints

I want to be the person that I was made to be

I’ve only scratched the surface

I’m giving everything

I am never defined by the mistakes I’ve made

I have a purpose to exist, I’ve got something to say

There is a hope despite shortcomings we face, got no love, got no grace

Through thick and thin we must stay strong

We won’t lose sight

We will prevail

We will overcome

These ghosts still haunt me

It’s all I have on these sleepless nights

Show me that I can still be saved

Show me that I’m worth saving

I know who I am

Mistakes are what made me

Your words, they can’t change me

So go waste your breath somewhere else

I’ve heard it all before so keep it to yourself

Keep it to yourself

I’m not a prophet, I don’t have all the answers

Transparent, imperfect, lost

Still fighting the cancer

We often ask ourselves “Is life really worth it?”

How quickly we forget every life has a purpose

I am revival

The turning point to a close minded race

Open your mind, we all bleed the same

One day they’ll stand at the foot of my grave

I can’t help but wonder what they will say

Life is a vapor

You only get one chance

Will you move forward with open heart and hands

These ghosts still haunt me

It’s all I have on these sleepless nights

Show me that I can still be saved

Show me that I’m worth saving

I want to be the person that I was made to be

I’ve only scratched the surface

I’m giving everything

This life is mine

This time I play for keeps

Wage War Johnny Cash

Let me tell you the saddest story

Love lost left broken and empty

Put my heart in the hands of another

Set a fire to the past and watched me burn

Somehow I guess it’s better this way

Looking back was it all just a mistake?

Thought I could live in the arms of another

But I guess I wasn’t enough for her

I wanna feel the love you can’t live without

The one that Johnny Cash wrote all his songs about

But I gave it all away for no return

Guess it’s just another lesson that I’ll never learn

I’ve been putting myself through your Hell

Holding on to things that don’t even matter now

You found your place in the arms of another

But now I see it’s just the way the Earth will turn

I wanna feel the love you can’t live without

The one that Johnny Cash wrote all his songs about

But I gave it all away for no return

Guess it’s just another lesson that I’ll never learn

Can’t seem to fill the void that lives in my chest

Thought I was what you need but I’m just second best

I’ll never give it all away again I swear

Don’t even look for a heart you’ll find there’s nothing there

(I can’t take it back)

All the years that we spent together have come to an end

(Regret is all I had)

Not sure I would if I could do it all over again

(I can’t take it back)

The memories, the pictures, I love you’s will wither

(Regret is all I had)

But this is the last song I’ll write about you

Forget my name

Forget my face

It was all just empty space

Deadweight

No longer part of me

Wage War Southbound

Define me as a failure

Only the shadow of a man

I will suffer the judgement passed by those

Who simply do not understand

Who I am, the way I think

The pain that sets in underneath

And when I try to be myself it seems like

The insecurity gets the worst of me

Gets the worst of me

The distance, it makes me sick

But there’s a new way that I’m coping with conviction

And I don’t expect you to understand it

I can’t leave these words unsaid

Cause it’s a product of the battle that’s in my head

And I can’t pretend that it never haunts me

The world will never be enough for me

I’ll tell you from the top, it’s only skin deep

I don’t know what I believe

But it’s not the way it’s supposed to be

Over these past few years I admit that things have changed

Dreams became reality but the pleasure became pain

I’ve loved, I’ve lost, you wouldn’t know what it cost

After every sacrifice that I have made

I’ll take this to the grave

You can be who you want to be

But your nightmares live in the same dream

Go be who you want to be

The distance, it makes me sick

But there’s a new way that I’m coping with conviction

And I don’t expect you to understand it

I can’t leave these words unsaid

Cause it’s a product of the battle that’s in my head

And I can’t pretend that it never haunts me

I don’t expect you to understand it

And I can’t pretend that it never haunts me

Wage War Spineless

I bet you think that you’re on top of the world,

But it’s gained you nothing and that’s what you deserve

Walk around with no regard for anyone else

You’ll get what’s coming to you, this much I promise to tell

I just don’t understand the sickness you are

Disrespectful punk, only set out to harm

This time you struck too close to home

When you hurt what’s mine, you cast your last stone

You cast your last stone

Coward

You were never worthy to stand

You don’t know what it takes

You don’t know what makes a man

Spineless

It’s about time that you learn some respect

So listen close, here’s a lesson that you’ll never forget

First blood

You drew first

Here’s a lesson that you’ll never forget

Next time you speak that name, I’ll make sure you regret it

Wage War Basic Hate

Here is to your false ideals

I am so sick of all your protesting signs

Your claims disgust me

If you really knew the God you claim to serve

You should know that there’s no hate in love

This your warning

This is your fall

Try and justify anything you hold to be true

We were meant to coexist

It was never suppose to be like this

At what cost do you think you’ll be saved?

Don’t use His name to move all the mountains in your way

Go back from where you came, have heart with what you say

You think you have all of the answers

Don’t think you can judge and not be judged

You use His name in vain

You’re a deceiver

Open your ears and bite your tongue

And listen up

Protest the funerals of the ones who protect you?

Innocent men and women who have died to defend you

Stop biting the hand that feeds, consumed by all your own needs

At what cost do you think you’ll be saved?

Don’t use His name to move all the mountains in your way

Go back from where you came, have heart with what you say

You’re a plague to the non-believer

Tell them all “You’re gonna burn forever”

You cast your stones in my Father’s name

There will be hell to pay

May you burn forever
