Song Lyrics

The Darkside

Hopefully we will watch All of ours powers, merge as one soon Hold your hands out and close your eyes and we will Look through their eyes and just watch

Soon I begin to recognize All of the time spent alone, all the time spent inside Who knows what tomorrow will bring Once again, our hands are out Let's see what it brings

But who cares when you're the only one who's listening These are the times when we block out the outside Oh no, do you know Do you know just how this quest will end When we face our tales from the dark side

Just understand who you are and everybody will look their part soon This underhanded, underlying, understanding takes a lot It takes a whole lot of love

But who cares when you're the only one who's listening These are the times when we block out the outside Oh no, do you know Do you know just how this quest will end When we face our tales from the dark side

Tales from the Darkside Tales from the Darkside Darkside

But who cares when you're the only one who's listening These are the times when we block out the outside Oh no, do you know Do you know just how this quest will end When we face our tales from the dark side

When we face our fears alone All, all alone, alone Alone.

Song Lyrics

Focus

You never know just where to go when you find yourself not hangin' around in the clear now we know the season's growing I never thought that I'd be standing right here

but I never let them hold me down from the rise of my inner most thoughts never let them hold you down if you want it just go on

If you want it go on you know it won't be long if you want it go on (yeah)

Now that you feel the needles pokin' take a step back, don't let that repeat now that you know the season's growing now we know why we feel so incomplete

Never let them hold me down from the rise of my inner most wants never let them hold you down if you want it, if you want it then go on

If you want it go on you know it won't be long if you want it go on Go on

We need to know the truth something's been stripped out from the inside of me and you we need to know the truth so we can put back, what's been stripped out from me and you

NO MORE NO MORE

NO MORE of your shit I take NO MORE NO MORE Of your Shi'iiiiiiit NO MORE!

Song Lyrics

Just for Fun

Look at our lives Where did our lives go What if we never really had a life at all Who would you run to and who would you call just to scream out loud you're clenching your hands and you don't know which way is up or down

Hold this, when i don't need it Just stand by my side

You say you've had enough I'll give up everything, give up anything Just for fun Hold this, when i don't need it

You say you've had enough I will give this all up Just for fun

I've seen one, I moved one You've felt one, we dealth with one so what, who cares Can you see them falling from the air

Just stand by my side...now

You say you've had enough I'll give up everything, give up anything Just for fun

You say you've had enough I will give this all up Just for fun

I will! Give this! I'll give this up for fun!

You fooled me you sold me out, you sold me out you fooled me, this time (time)

You say you've had enough I'll give up everything, give up anything Just for fun

You say you've had enough I will give this all up Just for fun

I'll give this up right now I'll give this up for fun Fun, for fun

yeah

You fooled me you sold me out, you sold me out you fooled me, this time

Your Look My Type

She had the same face, the same grin but a different voice was coming from within she didn't even know, just how the wind blows it was holling last night

Oh no, wait, it's getting hairy hanging out w/ this chick is getting scary I had nowhere to run, so I just held on tight for my life

Get it right take it easy I'll make this easy I'm no fool You're just my type, the scary look is my type Get it right take it easy, I'll make this easy I'm no fool You're just my type, the scary look is so cool

Another day in this dungeon and surviving on slop it's so terrible that I can't stop throwing it up I can't stop throwing up! just over the wall lies a pipe from which this damn sludge spwews I crawled through it to the other side and when i woke up I was brand new

You're just my type

(Let me out) There's so much more that I'd rather do (Show me how) To live a life worth more (Let me out) Please break me out once again (Cut this out) Give me something make this something I'll never forget

Something I will never forget

Get it right I'll make it easy You're just my type You know your look is my type

I think I got it right but I'm still a fool for... YOU!

Take the Time

everyone hurts just don't deal the way i did there i was just falling apart again so don't be afraid of answers to the questions you seek outside of here just know there's nothing to fear

don't move don't scream this isn't worth coming out alive

so i'll close my eyes reach way up high to take this all the way through space and time I promise things will change but for now just know your strength and use it hopin' we take the time we take the time to realize

and you wonder why i say the things i do so now we're clear on how far to go w/ this you hold the key to doors like yourself but you're not alone inside of here just know there's nothing to fear, at all

don't move don't scream this isn't worth coming out alive

so i'll ` close my eyes reach way up high to take this all the way through space and time I promise things will change but for now just know your strength and use it hopin' we take the time we take the time

to realize (x2) to realize, yeah, I'm hopin' we take the time we take the time to realize

That Place

Take what you need from me and go let my body rot let my mind grow old

I was hoping that all this would change and then I, saw your love I felt your smile

But no one can tell me, 'cause nobody knows

Nobody, nobody, has found that place that I will never leave this is your chance to escape, someone please help me it's kind of sick that I can't let go Oh no, I'm haunted, no more, I'm so tired please

you know I'm tired, so just please leave me alone

Sunrise and sunshine light the ways these thoughts that you've been putting off seem so far away you're holding on to life so tight that i feel you just might take your own life tonight

no one can tell me

Release me from your bad energies I'm caught inside your ways of thinking so hard to believe but I'll find it, just runs deeper inside of me I'm holding tight, still bleeding out right it's so hard to believe, i can't breathe

Release Me

Mundane Existence

You're holdin' on and movin' up Cheers to you I say But coming down from that high It isn't much fun, anyway I, just want the truth You're my sleuth and here are the clues to my case come around, just say my name because I don't know your face yet

And I've found the ways To escape this mundane existence That we all just seem to share And yeah, I've found the ways To get one over on your mistakes But no one, no one, seems to care

I need you, right next to me Right here by side I'm keeping the hope and I'm keeping the faith I'm doing my thing, just to stay alive Cut these puppet strings No more pulling straws or breaking teeth, they're so raw. I tried to leave as I feel the night fall because tonight it's all wrong

And I've found the ways To escape this mundane existence That we all just seem to share And yeah, I've found the ways To get one over on your mistakes But no one, no one, seems to care No one seems to care

No one seems to CARE! I. NEED. I need to leave this alone I. NEED. TO. I need, to leave you alone No one justifies ANYTHING, ANYMORE WHAT THE FUCK?! I. NEED. TO. I need, to leave this world alone

(I~)

I've found the ways To escape this mundane existence That we all just seem to share And yeah, I've found the ways To get one over on your mistakes But no one, no one, seems to care No one seems to care

Why...?
