ASKING ALEXANDRIA lyrics - Stand Up And Scream

A Single Moment Of Sincerity

Original and similar lyrics
False tales, Lies of a washed up prom queen! Why'd you tell me Everything was fine? Everything was okay? Get on your knees, oh! Oh, why? Tear me up! No, why? Everything's dead inside! Oh, you should've told me, At least I would've known! No, you should've told me And carved it in my bones! Tear out my eyes! Remove my gift of Sight, proves ever cursing! The light won't find us here! Painted red, my eyes are burning! And still you hide behind the waves! Your silence is haunting! Your words relentless, Burying in! My heart betrays me For a last first kiss goodbye! Fall asleep! Jar one eye! Jar one eye! Spilling every lie you've spilled before, Still I'm not forgiving you. What's happened between us? What can I give to save us? Being righteous isn't quite enough. What's happened between us? What can I give to save me? These oceans are far between our hearts. The breathing has got too hard. [x2] Oh! Scream with the voice of an angel! Lie in the eyes of the gospel! Smile in the face of your victims! Smile for me! This is my last request to you! Hold my breath! I was clutching onto disaster! Hold my breath!

United State

Luxt "Jezabel Thirteen Three"
I've forgotten the name of the father. Forgotten the name of the son. When I look to their use of the holy ghost, I think they should fear what's to come. I've invited the sins of the flesh, I've decidedly taken them in. When I look to my soul, I don't find it a hole, but I admit it looks a bit thin. In this united state. I have stolen the bread from the alter, I have tempted the fingers of fate. I have spit on the grave of the land of the brave and look to a new united state. I have pulled the wings off of remembrance, I have since set alight to the past. No more wet in these eyes for the lazy, their head in the sand as the world kicks their ass. In this united... Through the cinders I since the horizon, through the embers the body has stirred. The end of the world having since come and gone without whispering so much as a word. As the sun sends the century packing, as the dawn threatens not a clean slate. No where, no way to get back, and no chance of crashing the gate. Guess you'll have to take a part in your own fate. I've bled a fortune worth of lies, I've caused a wealth of heartfelt pain, I stand here cold with searing eyes, look to the sky to bring the rain, I hold my hoping out of sight, I hold my doubt between my teeth, The years catching up to the right, the truth or lie within belief.

The Fountain Of Lamneth

RUSH "A Farewell To Kings"
I. In the Valley I am born I am me I am new I am free Look at me I am young Sight unseen Life unsung My eyes have just been opened And they're open very wide Images around me Don't identify inside Just one blur I recognize The one that soothes and feeds My way of life is easy And as simple are my needs Yet my eyes are drawn toward The mountain in the east Fascinates and captivates Gives my heart no peace The mountain holds the sunrise In the prison of the night 'Til bursting forth from rocky chains The valley floods with light Living one long sunrise For to me all things are new I've never watched the sky grow pale Or strolled through fields of dew I do not know of dust to dust I live from breath to breath I live to climb that mountain To the Fountain of Lamneth II. Didacts and Narpets (and the shouting may not be perfect...) Stay! Go! Work! No! Learn! Live! Earn! Give! Stay or fight? What's right? Listen! III. No One At the Bridge Crying back to consciousness The coldness grips my skin The sky is pitching violently Drawn by shrieking winds Seaspray blurs my vision Waves roll by so fast Save my ship of freedom I'm lashed helpless to the mast Remembering when first I held The wheel in my own hands I took the helm so eagerly And sailed for distant lands But now the sea's too heavy And I just...I just don't understand Why must my crew desert me? When I need...I need a guiding hand... Call out for direction And there's no one there to steer Shout out for salvation But there's no one there to hear Cry out supplication For the maelstrom is near Scream out desperation But no one cares to hear IV. Panacea The whiteness of confusion Is unfolding from my mind I stare around in wonder Have I left my life behind? I catch the scent of ambergris And turn my head, surprised My gaze is caught and held and I Am helpless...mesmerized Panacea, liquid grace Oh let me touch your fragile face Enchantment falls around me And I know I cannot leave Here's a meaning for my life A shelter from the storm Pacify my troubles with Her body, soft and warm Naked in our unity A smile for every tear Gentle hands that promise me Comfort through the years Yet I know I must be gone Before the light of dawn Panacea, passion pure I can't resist your gentle lure My heart will lie beside you And my wandering body grieves V. Bacchus Plateau Another endless day Silhouettes of grey Another glass of wine Drink with eyes that shine To days without that chill at morning Nights time out of mind Chorus Draw another goblet From the cask of '43 Crimson misty memory Hazy glimpse of me Give me back my wonder I've something more to give I guess it doesn't matter There's not much more to live Another foggy dawn The mountain almost gone Another doubtful fear The road is not so clear My soul grows ever weary And the end is ever near Chorus VI. The Fountain Look! The mist is rising And the sun is peaking through See the steps grow lighter As I reach their final few Hear the dancing waters I must be drawing near Feel, my heart is pounding With embattled hope and fear Now, at last I fall before The Fountain of Lamneth I thought I would be singing But I'm tired...out of breath Many journeys end here But, the secret's told the same: Life is just a candle, and a dream Must give it flame The key, the end, the answer Stripped of their disguise Still it's all confusion And tears spring to my eyes Though I've reached a signpost It's really not the end Like Old Sol behind the mountain I'll be coming up again. I'm in motion I am still I am crying I am...still. I'm together I'm apart I'm forever At the start Still... I am.

We're Forgiven

THE CALLING "Camino Palmero"
Well, I would like to think The world hasn't seen That all the best is still to come, And I know life ain't easy. I pass them sleeping on the streets Their bloodstained hands and dirty feet And I can't ignore them Any more then I already have [Chorus:] So we laugh, and we smile and we play our games of sweet denial But don't tell me we're forgiven If we hold, all our breath If we kneel right down and just repent You can't tell me we're forgiven Start with me I cannot lie When my heart doesn't follow my eyes Turn away from all the suffering That surrounds Our time on this earth For some their life has been a curse I say I'm sorry and I should change You know it just could be me someday [Chorus] There's no way out of here I don't want to die, and leave it all behind Each day part of me disappears But who am I to judge, what's been sent from above [Chorus] We can't laugh We can't smile When so much just ain't right It can't go on forever... If we hold, our breath If we kneel down and repent You can't tell me we're forgiven, no, You can't tell me we're forgiven

Angels

JIN "Say Something"
You know I gotta say something The beginning and the end What's the difference between the two? I mean I'm still tryna figure it out I know one thing I'm just getting started You know all that stuff that happened in the past... I ain't even thinking about that It's about right now And it's about moving forward Check, check Yo, dear God I wonder can You save me? The more it makes sense the more they claim that I'm crazy I had the beef for them to see me this calm Or reality, uh uh no TV sitcom My pure will got me stolen for Grace Eyes closed, salty tears all I could taste All on my knees, fall on my face They say put God first and everything else will fall in the place So I've heard, wise words got me thinking Gotta give it time to let it sink in I sound confused, I know For what shall a prophet a man to gain the whole world then lose his soul For the longest I was ridin' high cruise control In my own mind making up the ruses I go I swear it's not just my imagination I heard a voice guide in me, navigation Is it the route I chose or should I check the stair end Took a couple wrong turns, selective hearing Is it fact or just my premonition? I see what's going on now, high definition Nothing but lies I was living at Wasted like Lay 6 it took me time to get my vision back Learnt to recognize the fakes and the true snakes So call friends, you know the twoface All in my grill like a twofake Still you never find me under pressure like the last drop of tooth pace My mission has never been more clear The Truth has never been more near But I know I can't do it on my own So I pray You give me strength when I lift the microphone All I hear is "Jin, what happened to the old you? " See I could explain but I would rather show you Word, check it out y'all 'Cause actions speak louder than words So it don't matter how I mix, the nouns with the verbs New fans and glad God anointed my style Old fans wanna know "What will I rap about now? " Switch it up, yo I gots to do it The word is "Jin's spittin' out Gospel music" See I prefer the call it "change your life music" All in hopes that one day you might use it Whatever they choose they label it, so be it I proceeded, all I know is I so need it I'm certain that I can't rap forever Before the curtain call I gotta get my act together No surprise the room over my eyes has been lifted My entire perspective has been shifted I can't call it, you can call it how you feel Call it change, call it grow, as long as you call it real I am no quitter My journey's just begun, you are all welcome to follow, no Twitter I know plenty folks that wanna touch the gate to Heaven Never been to Church 'cause they can't relate the reference Ain't no sense in me, preaching to the quire Even with starch arms I'd be reaching to the fire I stand firm, the enemy don't face me No need to wonder, only God can save me
