Hungry fire

I was wrong
'cause I do have the right song
The kind you are
trying to nail for too long
How is that working for you
so far ?
Have you at least discovered
who the fuck you are ?
Not loyal, that much I can say
not religious, 'cause just like me
you forgot how to pray
Not a leader, 'cause you can't even
find your way
Not humble, 'cause I'm waiting
for that "I'm sorry" 'till today
Not brave, you're gutless to
the core
Not a fighter, I was always the one
believing that you could do much more
Yeah waiting for the right moment,
I 've heard it all before

A little bit dumb,
clearly  numb
Selfish, self-centered,
a compulsive liar
I pretended I couldn't see
and I kept getting higher and higher
Only feeding that hungry fire
Too full of yourself,
too little to show
A brat that refuses to grow;
Snatching their dreams
Silently walking away
Well you can't take mine, they're too many
I even dream during the day
Freddy Krueger wannabe
You're no match for me
Can't take my hopes,
can't steal my beliefs
I can handle just fine your
kind of thieves

I'll slow my pace
You're clearly a disgrace
to the damn race
Keep up man
I refuse to dumb down again
You just won't understand
So why are we even trying friend ?
Dumb as a brick
I don't have time for this shit

Let's flip the page, let's move on
What's back there is gone
No more reruns please
You got me begging on my knees
Not afraid of the dark
but sensitive to the light
Mom said that I have to be
strong and fight
it was never promised
that everything would be alright
'cause I learned long ago that
that's not exactly right ...

Back to black

Life knocks and asks
trick or treat
A few years ago I came to terms
that sometimes you need to accept defeat
She asked me do you ever think 'bout killing
I just laughed ...

While trying to find you,
I got dangerously lost
I was so not ready to pay
such a high cost
One more heart to break
One more smile to take
Hit each nerve
getting what we deserve
You do not get to witness
while I burn
It's the knockout, she's on the ground,
she's dead
and clearly didn't hear a word I said ...

Not being able to belong anywhere
Starts to get frustrating at some point
and now I just don't care
I lit the joint
I'm gone, surely crazy
and I miss you less and less lately
I went back to black
how 'bout that ?
It's a bad novel
a wicked romance
Licking the flames
while we dance
Do we even stand a chance ?
No one will get out scar free
But hey please remember that this
has nothing to do with me ...

Your hopes and beliefs
are a fragile house of cards
and I'm the cold wind blowing
You'd like to flee, do you already
know where you are going ?
Can you outrun this ?
Can it be done ?
Then by all means, Run !
You've never been in my
kind of hell
I've got some awesome
stories to tell
Trying to save me from myself ?
Good luck
You care so much for someone
that actually stopped giving a fuck
'Careful where you step in,
I lost my mind too
Who can I thank for that,
Oh that's right , You !

What could've been but will never be ...

I'm at the payphone
I'm trying to call home
Got too drunk
trying to forget you
That was the best I could do
Does it happen to you too?
Once you had one too many,
does it rush back?
Do you lose track?
of all the memories and
bittersweet ties
Do you feel like drowning
in a bed of lies?
I'm trying to call home,
can't dial
You won't pick up anyways,
I'm stuck on denyal

Barenaked for you to see
This is it darling, this is me
The sharks have smelled the blood
in the water already
My soul feels light but the
heart is so heavy
I'm being pulled down
and I'm afraid I'll drown
Oh won't you come and rescue me
Won't you save me from this angry sea

The Devil has a special place
in store in hell for yours trully
meant to be
Guess who will share the underworld's
throne with me ?
That's right, the best seat in the
house is reserved for you baby ...

I guess
this is what I've got left
such a huge mess
Me and all that was left unspoken
me and this stubborn heart that
remains broken
You and that fierce intensity
stripping my soul down
to the very last bit of me
Us and that shattered possibility
of what could've been
but will never be ...

WhiSkeY & cOkE

Whiskey and coke
and a lover's footnote
He choked
When I told him
why my heart broke
Love's rope
is too tight around my troat

Ace of Swords, for so we'll
start a fight
The heavy war between the
dark and light
You are no match for the queen,
keep on playing I'll be on the throne
Keep on begging
I might throw the dog a bone

Queen of Swords, off with his head
I'm done sharing the enemy's bed
This King of Cups is about to drop dead
I'm such a fool, just not a fool for you
I'll keep on slaying you know that much is true
The Empress to the kingdom,
fall to your knees
You ain't getting no forgiveness
if you don't say pretty please
Take it back, all of it, your love
is a disease !
it came crawling from the gutter,
taking never giving
and I'm the one who is crazy
'cause I stopped believing ?!
Well have you ever considered my sweet
former King
that I still remember each sting
that there's a story behind each
note I sing
The problem is not that I don't
want to believe
is that you're not believable dear
Which one of us actually fought around here?

Crawl back to your cave hermit,
and don't you come back
The dead are buried 
and let's leave it to that
You can tell the whole world
how crazy I can be
'cause honestly
I couldn't care less baby ...

Now just down that whiskey ...

Devil's little girl

A pariah, yes
A complete mess
Check !
Not really worried about that
Alienated, ostracized
Still smiling knowing I did
all I could
Insane, messed up in the brain
Damaged, very aware of all the pain
Breaking your rules
every step of the way
Guess which one is quitting today
Wild, can't be tamed
the kind of picture too crooked
to be framed
Still, not ashamed

That's what you needed,
this was what you wanted all along
Now, do you figure you could've been wrong?
I'll swallow every bit of what I feel
But won't hide it, apparently I still need to heal
There's no way you're taking that away from me
Still I do love you, yes it's that silly
that sick, derranged
to say the least
Beauty lost her spotlight
it's all about the beast
this seems to have lasted
for too long
it makes itself feel so strong
to be ignored
like a moth dragged into the light
I doubt that we can escape this tonight
and I'm scaring you, right ?

It's devious, toxic, self destructive
each desire
You sir are a damn good liar
And we climb higher and higher
Mad, mad indeed
Crazed love, the devil's seed
You're kneeling before frustration
lacking determination
At the end of the day
you're just too concerned
with what they have to say

Bad girl one 0 one

The shivers across my soul
are the worst
Your kind of love became my curse
Burn it down
Burn it to the ground
Your silence is the most escruciating sound
Reload, take another shot
but only if you are certain of it
otherwise better not
These demons are all I 've got
Don't even dare saying that you've fought
Left me there to rot
Put me in the dark
so that I couldn't see
If you only knew half of what this is
doing to me ...

I always dreamnt of becoming
a giant in this world, footsteps on the moon
It doesn't seem likely that I come back
anytime soon
Can you hear me?
Shall I shout ?
You think you know dark ?
He was the one blowing out the flame,
didn't even leave a spark
Trying to fix it, to mend the crazy
But can't seem to get a hold of me
Don't even bother, and I do believe
it's time to end today's show
Humm , I know
it's time for you to go
karma is one sick bitch indeed
they provided me with the offspring,
Devil's seed
Hell bitch is pissed
your ass is on the line
Don't worry you'll be fine
No need to cry
I learnt this one with you,
how to lie ...

Who killed cock robin ?

Once upon a time
he shredded my heart
torn it apart
and now he wants it back ...
Now enlight me
What am I supposed to do?
Yes, tell me, this is all about you
How did I get here ? To be honest
I have no clue
I keep thinking and thinking and I'm
pretty sure I've gone crazy
Will you take care of me baby?

You killed it ?  

I killed it, it doesn't beat anymore
Move on, you're barking at the wrong door
It bled indeed, right down to the core
Rot ...
Darling love me not ...
Forget, what I already forgot

Pitch black, darkened to the bone
made of stone
you learn how to survive,
if left alone ...
The voices go like
Please snap
You know we got your back 
Relive it all, go crazy
You got it bad, don't you baby? 
I hate having to dance
to anothers song
I knew you would run
it didn't take long
I love being right no doubt there
and you, wipe those tears it's not
like you really care
Play fair

You meant well, of course
'Careful you're bound to fall
from that high horse
of yours
You never meant to hurt another,
as usual, we know
and therefore we are letting you go
Move fast, just disappear
we'll pretend you were never here
Farewell dear ...
