We toil,
Turning rocks into sand;
Until,
We can no longer stand;
We fall,
To our knees and hands;
And so we crawl, we crawl!
We are the damned!

Sightless,
In darkness we do dwell;
Hopeless,
Trapped deep within this hell;
Lifeless,
Body just an empty shell;
We are the godless!
We are the damned!

Stolen,
From our family;
Taken,
To a life of misery;
Forgotten,
Erased from memory;
We are forsaken!
We are the damned!

Can’t remember the smell of the fields,
Or how the sunlight feels;
Can’t remember the stars in the skies,
The light shining in our eyes;
Can’t remember the sound of birdsong,
‘Cause we’ve been down here far too long;
Can’t remember how it felt to stand,
We are the damned!

The Damned

[verse 1]
I’m standing on the beach
And I’m looking out to sea
Several thousand miles of ocean
Stand between you and me


[verse 2]
Last night I had a dream
I saw inside my mind
I was lying on the sand
And you were by my side


[chorus]
This is not a love song
I don’t want to make you mine
I just wish you could be here
To be with me at this time


[verse 3]
The feeling that’s inside me
When I see the sunrise
Is the feeling that’s inside me
When I look into your eyes


[CHORUS]


[bridge]
The clouds fly by and the sun goes down
And still I stand on my own
But in this place as I think of you
I know I’m not alone


[CHORUS] (a capella)

Sand Storm

Sand Storm

[verse 1]
People ignore me
They think that I’m mad
They see me, avoid me
Like I’m something bad
And sometimes it hurts me
It makes me quite sad
But mostly I’m happy
I’m so f*****g glad

[chorus]
‘Cus I’m crazy
So crazy
So badly f****d up
Yeah I’m crazy
So crazy
And I don’t give a f**k
‘Cus I’m crazy
So crazy
I’m really messed up
And if you
Don’t like it
You ain’t crazy enough

[verse 2]
Friends couldn’t handle
The way that I am
‘Cus I’m so crazy
And don’t give a damn
They shunned me and spurned me
Threw me out of the gang
‘Cus I’m crazy so crazy
And they don’t understand

[chorus]
‘Cus I’m crazy
So crazy
So badly f****d up
Yeah I’m crazy
So crazy
And I don’t give a f**k
‘Cus I’m crazy
So crazy
I’m really messed up
And if you
Don’t like it
You ain’t crazy enough

[verse 3]
That’s when I met you
So crazy like me
Just living, not giving
A damn what they think
You’re crazy and carefree
Being who you want to be
Yeah you’re crazy, so crazy
So crazy like me

[chorus]
You’re crazy
So crazy
So badly fxxxed up
You’re crazy
So crazy
And you don’t give a fxxx
I only
Hope I can
Be crazy enough
‘Cus I’m crazy
So crazy
Yeah I’m crazy in love
Oh I’m crazy
So crazy
Yeah I’m crazy in love
Yeah I’m crazy
So crazy
Yeah I’m crazy in love

Crazy

Can’t you see what you are doing now
Every day with you is a living hell
Every second is more than I can take
Always looking for some way to escape
Every way I turn you have laid a trap
Freedom always there just beyond my grasp

Desperation has long taken hold
Life with you has long taken its toll
Never giving me some room to breathe
If I am to live then I must leave
I know I won’t survive another day
I’ve got to find a way, I’ve got to get away

Can’t you see that it’s over?
Can’t you see that I’m done with you?
Can’t you see that’s it’s over?
That I’m done with this torture
Yeah I’m done with you

Can’t you see how you have treated me
This is not how I thought we would be
I once thought I could rely on you
But you’ve made me question all I knew
Betrayed my trust and lied to me constantly
Making me feel small and always looking down me

Can’t you see that it’s over?
Can’t you see that I’m done with you?
Can’t you see that’s it’s over?
That I’m done with this torture
Yeah I’m done with you

You told me that you were gonna change
Four years later you are still the same
Drinking, shouting, swearing all the time
Blaming me for each and everything
Taking all your anger out on me
My pain is your favourite therapy

Can’t you see that it’s over?
Can’t you see that I’m done with you?
Can’t you see that’s it’s over?
That I’m done with this torture
Yeah I’m done with you

My bags are packed and by the door
I’m not waiting anymore
I’m done with this, I’m done with us
Can’t you see I’m done with this

Can’t you see that it’s over?
Can’t you see that I’m done with you?
Can’t you see that’s it’s over?
That I’m done with this torture
Yeah I’m done with you

Done With You

[verse 1]
Stand with me as the towers fall
As all else tumbles we’ll still stand tall
Watch with me as the whole world crumbles
The life we knew now reduced to rubble

[verse 2]
Stand with me when there’s nothing left
Just you and me and the fire in our chests
Gaze on the remnants of the world now gone
Stand with me and wait for dawn

[chorus]
Will you stay by me when the world is burning
Always standing tall and never running
Tell me that you’ll never leave
That you’ll always stand with me

[verse 3]
Stand with me against the masses
As they fight for power among the ashes
Stand with me, I’ll keep you safe baby
‘Cause you and me, we’re our own brand of crazy

[chorus]
Will you stay by me when the world is burning
Always standing tall and never running
Tell me that you’ll never leave
That you’ll always stand with me

[bridge]
Stand with me with no regret
Stand with me and never forget
Stand with me past our last breath
Stand with me in life and death

[chorus]
Will you stay by me when the world is burning
Always standing tall and never running
Tell me that you’ll never leave
That you’ll always stand with me

Stand With Me

[verse 1]
Do you ever think about what we once had?
Do you ever wonder how it all went bad?
Do you ever wish it all had stayed the same?
And do you f*cking realise that you’re to blame?

You’re just another scar,
That is all you are;
Just another cut across
My tortured heart.

[verse 2]
Have you ever thought about our bond so strong?
Have you ever wondered why it all went wrong?
Have you ever wished for us to try again?
Even though it was your fault it had to end

You’re just another scar
That is all you are
A cruel reminder of how
You tore me apart

[verse 3]
Did you ever stop to think about what you’d done?
Did you ever wonder what we could become?
Did you ever wish that you could turn back time?
Or did you expect to get away with your crime?

You’re just another scar
That is all you are
All the pain is the result
Of your brutal art

[verse 4]
Will you ever think about getting back on track?
Will you ever wonder if I’ll take you back?
Will you ever let me know if your love was true?
It doesn’t f*cking matter though; ‘cause I‘m done with you

You’re just another scar,
That is all you are
Just another cut across
My tortured heart

Just Another Scar
