Lyrical draft... March of the souls

If you see the needing, just walk on by. If you hear the screaming, don’t notice why. It’s all illusion of some distant memory, a shared confusion of what it means to feel

Shadows of doubt will cast upon the purest dreams.

It’s all mistaken, since we’ve been breaking. It seems impossible to fly. It’s all mistaken, paths we’re creating, and now I’m searching reasons why.

If you see the bleeding, don’t ask me why. If you stop believing, don’t you even cry. It’s all illusion of some distant memory, a shared confusion of what it means to feel

It’s all mistaken, since we’ve been breaking. It seems impossible to fly. It’s all mistaken, paths we’re creating, and now I’m searching reasons why.

Creeping like cancer, insert the pain into my brain. Constantly ever flowing, surging rapids through my veins. You say tomorrow, we’ve yet to live another day. No time to borrow I’m reaching out in every way.

It’s time to face our goals, embrace the marching of the souls.

The best we ever had

I've done the best that I can do, you know I did it all for you. I know you want to see me try, try, try, you know I never want to hear you cry.

This is the best we ever had, the world's still turning, so things can't be that bad. I lost the wheel, now I'm trying not to crash, this is the best we ever had.

Forever's not too long, eternally we play, It's up to us to live to face another day. I know you never want to see me bleed, you know I'll be there in your time of need.

This is the best we ever had, the world's still turning, so things can't be that bad. I lost the wheel, now I'm trying not to crash, this is the best we ever had.

Try to comprehend how much is real, It's so much more than I can feel. I reach out I the dark, are you still there? I need to know you care.

This is the best we ever had, the world's still turning, no need to feel so sad. I lost the wheel, now I'm trying not to crash, but when the sun comes up we may just turn to ash.

Sea of Blood

Cold fragments, broken glass. Bleeding out beneath bare feet. Thousands of miles I've trod, dizzy down these rusted streets.

I'm cold, too old, can't seem to do as I've been told. Irate, for fate, It's getting late no time to wait. The wants, the needs, I'm trying but It's hard to believe. The crave, insane, another blood soaked dream on the brain.

Sitting tight, holding fast, hoping this was meant to last, guided straight along the tracks, still I'm slipping through the cracks. Gone and found the truth now all the trust, is drowning in a sea of blood.

Feel the pain increase, It's time to declare war. Although I'd like to stay, can't take this anymore. Yet to be deceased, back's against the wall, you can't escape decay, It's universal law. Universal law.

I'm cold, too old, can't seem to do as I've been told. Irate, for fate, It's getting late no time to wait. The wants, the needs, I'm trying but It's hard to believe. The crave, insane, another blood stained scene to my name.
