Save The Day

Original and similar lyrics
Tied to the tracks and I hear you call Your voice is shaking The train is coming faster than you thought And there's no escaping it And you think that you know How the end of the story goes That's a page I rewrote And I'm taking away the ropes There's more hope than you'll ever know So keep breathing I said that I'll always be there Now I mean it more than ever before There's a future worth fighting for So don't be scared I know how you must be feeling No one to help you carry the pain I'm coming to save the day Hands of the clock Are standing still But your heart is racing You're losing your grip on the windowsill Pulled down by the weight of it And you pray for relief As you lie on the bathroom floor As you wait You can see There's a light underneath the door This is the day you've been waiting for So keep breathing I said that I'll always be there Now I mean it more than ever before There's a future worth fighting for So don't be scared I know how you must be feeling No one to help you carry the pain We're finally breaking Into the daylight Feel the warmth of the sun I will stand by your side Till your fear passes on So just look in my eyes Baby, try to hold on And you'll find It won't be long So keep breathing I said that I'll always be there Now I mean it more than ever before There's a future worth fighting for So don't be scared I know how you must be feeling No one to help you carry the pain I'm coming to save the day, yeah Comin' to save the day (There's a future worth fighting for) Don't be scared I know how you must be feeling You know that it won't be long No one to help you carry the pain It won't be long Tied to the tracks and I hear you call Your voice is shaking

The Aftermath

IRON MAIDEN "The X Factor"
Silently to silence fall In the fields of futile war Toys if death are spitting lead Where boys that were our soldiers bled War horse and war machine Curse the name of liberty Marching on as if they should Mix in the dirt of brothers blood In the mud and rain What are we fighting for Is it worth the pain Is it worth dying for Who will take the blame Why did they make a war Questions that come again Should we be fighting at all Once a ploughman hitched his team Here he sowed his little dream Now bodies arms and legs are strewn Where mustard gas and barbwire bloom Each moments like a year I've nothing left inside for tears Comrades dead or dying lie I'm left alone asking why In the mud and rain What are we fighting for Is it worth the pain Is it worth dying for Who will take the blame Why did they make a war Questions that come again Should we be fighting at all After the war Left feeling that no one has won After the war What does a soldier become

Tug Of War

ANDY MINEO "Heroes For Sale"
Momma praying for me Grandma praying for me Satan preying on me Jesus waiting on me 'Cause I've been straddling the fence it's time to make decisions I've been thinking about Heaven lately, don't think I'll get in 'Cause I've been going back and forth I love the way I'm living But I hate it at the same time 'cause I know I'm sinning! And I don't want to be like them hypocritical Christians So I stay away from Jesus completely 'till I'm ready to give Him Everything, but that seems like it'll never happen My girl coming over later, you know what's about to happen Then after some smashing I'm sitting there asking If eternity in Hell is worth some moments of this satisfaction Man I'm so back and forth! I'm back and forth like a tug of war I've been fighting for my life, like I'm trying to get my life right And I really want more, and I don't know Back and forth like a tug of war And I've been fighting for control, and fighting for my soul and this is war I've got two choices Both require pain One's the pain of change or the pain of staying the same One of them leads to joy Other one leads to shame One of them leads to freedom the other one keeps me in chains I wear a cross and give you thanks for my blessings! Ain't that enough?! Why you want everything?! Can't you leave this part of my life untouched?! I thought following you meant I only had to say yes once! Now every day I wake up you give me some cross to take up! You really want me to break up with my girl? Now that's too much... I know what's best for me! You don't understand my complexities! See I gotta make a living so don't ask where my checks come from! Now I hear you talking, I ain't gone numb! I know I'm in the dark and I gotta find my way to the Son, 'cause He calling on my name and I know I can't run... I'm so back and forth... I'm back and forth like a tug of war I've been fighting for my life, like I'm trying to get my life right And I really want more, and I don't know Back and forth like a tug of war And I've been fighting for control, and fighting for my soul and this is war I drown on broken hearts A man full of regrets The thrill has left, the empty promises of sin sets You wanna put treasure inside my hands, but you cease 'Cause they're clamped, holding on the sins I won't release I don't know how to start loving you, and stop doing what I'm doing if I gain you tell me what I'm really losing You have to change me and my sins I'd never choose Him My heart needs to see something greater than what I'm pursuing so Is it true that you give rest to the weary? Can you accept and repair me? Do you hear me? It's so clear and now it's painfully apparent That I can't have my sin and my Savior, they're not for sharing Anything that I lose to follow you is not a loss My girlfriend my friends my money even my job But sometimes I believe the lie That God don't provide for His child when they obey, that's so cray He calling me to freedom, I think that it's time to walk I don't see every step but the next is out of the dark I'm the filthiest of them all, but I'm YOURS if you wash me! From that sin, by the blood of that cross! I'm yours

Pushed Again

Die toten Hosen
Whispering voices in my head sounds like they're calling my name a heavy hand is shaking my bed I'm weaking up and I feel the strain I'm feeling pushed again... Why should I go where everyone goes? Why should I do what everyone does? I don't like it when you get too close I don't want to be under your thumb I'm feeling pushed again.... Why can't you just leave me alone? solitude is a faithful friend turn the lights off - I'm not home can't you see I don't need your help? You're going too fast when I want to go slow you make me run when I want to walk you're sending me down a rocky road I get confused when you start to talk I'm feeling pushed again... Why can't you just leave me alone? You're dragging me right to the edge I've got to go when you jerk my rope I don't know where the good times went And I'm sick of this pain in my head and I' scared of being pushed Pushed again It's getting more then I can take It's like a band tightening around my head if you keep pushing something's going to break it's making me think I'd be better of dead Why can't you just leave me alone? solitude is a faithful friend I'll sort my life out on my own I just want this preasure to end And I'm sick of this pain in my head and I' scared of being pushed Pushed again And I'm sick of this pain in my head and I' scared of being pushed Pushed again

Semblance Of Confusion

AFTER FOREVER "Prison Of Desire"
As the light's becoming more fierce and the heat is melting your heart The fire is awakening there's an ancient fear we all know Ominous, misleading, get entangled in yourself It's a feeling, creeps up, deep within Sweet taste of innocence forgotten A semblance of confusion The strength I need is now flowing away The choking feeling obstructs everything So erratic in search for the truth The pain is strong and persists Silence was just a diversion to come out on the hard truth again Leaving this world of illusions seen through the eyes of the innocent Confronted with the infinity of chaos, forcing you to rearrange When your litanies are unheard Phantasm becomes coldly real There's a thin line between the world of illusion and reality A purgatoric trip through the mirrors within you Unconsciousness beholden Fear to face pass the border of pain, that burning contagion To break, conquer and find lost beauty Rinse, the penance is over I know now where to find the answer Confronting unconsciousness

As Safe As Yesterday Is

HUMBLE PIE
Can I face tomorrow With the news you bring me My soul feels cold like ice A pinprick makes no pain Hear me, listen, help me I felt our thing change From love to something else How can it plague my mind A pinprick makes no pain Hear me, listen, help me I shall find myuself But I must have the time To sow the seeds of something new Farmer plough the field Harvest all you can A corn field smells so sweet A pinprick makes no pain Hear me, listen, help me But to follow the weaver of dreams Behind the sun that knows, it seems that I am foresworn - a naked troubadour I sit at court and I sing To the Princess of Beauty and Light She favours me though I'm merely A minstrel of the night There on my right Sits the King with his clowns He pays to laugh While his queen lives on downs And the smile on his brow is the crown Morning bird sing, fill my ears With the joy of our sorrow unmasked Lend me your wings for the sunrays of dawn Are here to last I take my leave, as I leave I must take All I have seen in my dream - then I wake And it is as safe as yesterday is
