shed some stress

feeling some pressure
it's caving in
the thread is loosening
getting harder to contain

gimme some mercy
have mercy on me

feeling some anger
it's an avalanche
hitting like rolling thunder
trying to remain content

gimme some mercy
have mercy on me

I hope things start making sense
trying my hardest to pretend
looking through a different lens
trying my hardest to shed some stress

feeling the madness
I cannot change
a disease there is no cure for
I'll take the blame
gimme some mercy
have mercy on me

I hope things start making sense
trying my hardest to pretend
looking through a different lens
trying my hardest to shed some stress
I hope things start making sense
trying my hardest to shed some stress
I hope things start making sense
trying my hardest to shed some stress

we dove into hell

screeching madness,
chaos ensues as sirens sound,
a simple routine gone
horribly wrong,
fireworks explode around me,
all I can smell the gunpowder
and blood,
the ground quakes
with violent tremors
reminding us
we don't belong here,
the constant buzzing in my ear
from the drum popping, booming
thunder rattling to the core
makes it hard to understand
my comrades, leaving me in a
daze

meeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreeeeeeeeeeeeee
 LET'S MOVE!

I run while bullets whiz by,
crashing into the bodies
of the impending horde,
through the flames and
bone-chilling screams,
we make our escape

we dove into hell-
we may have made it
off that rock, but
we didn't survive

the core of loving others

if it's one thing I can say
I've learned about love,
is people are oblivious
to what is most important,
past all of the
presents,
the eloquent words spoken,
compliments
and
promises,
any grand gesture...
it is time,
if they are frugal with their
time,
they do not love you,
worst part of all is sometimes
you're not the only one
they are fooling,
so it is imperative that
you learn to look past
the pageantry
and remain focused on
the scenario

faith over reason

I know what you want
feelin' kind of scared
the veil seems to be weakening
I know what you want
it says it on your face
conflicting with the words that you speak

and I try to keep some faith

I know what you want
feelin' kind of scared
keeping your motives unclear
I know what you want
you know it's not fair
keeping me locked out in the dark

and I try to keep some faith

but this cross you been carrying on your back
I can see it's hollow as it starts to crack
but I continue to betray myself

I know what you want
your image at stake
fearing revelations, yeah
I know what you want
feelin' kind of scared
calculating every move

and I try to keep some faith

but the words you preach are falling kind of flat
and the pages from your book were all left blank
but I continue to betray myself

my breath wasted on blank stares
left stagnant, lost in the air
I'm over playing blind
I'll just go deaf, a fair trade for my eyes

and I'll try to keep some faith

but the tales you weave are seeming contrary
to what I hear versus what I see

these ideas of you I've had
spent my time fighting them
turns out they're all real
you held the key to set me free
just watched me suffer instead
'cause you didn't care
giving into my instincts
picking up on subtle things
I'm accepting who you are
I don't need you to know I'm right
I don't want you in my life
I choose not to care
I no longer betray myself
