Our Darkest Days tracks

Lyrics

1. INTRO (OUR DARKEST DAYS)

We built this all
From miles away
We sacrificed
To see these days
And from our hearts
We'll have our say
We built this all
Our darkest days...




2. BLEEDING

To my country
The mounting costs
Our freedom's lost
The death of liberty

We live in a Kingdom of reigns
The dogs of war rule the day
The hypocrites roam in gangs
The truth is lost
It's wars first casualty

Speak the truth
If you've got something to say
To leaf the boys off to war
Is to throw them away
Depleted rounds kill
RU-238
These troubled times
Bringing on our darkest days

Is this the death of liberty
Is this the price that life has come to mean
All our friends, now enemies
The misery of

Bleeding
To my country
The mounting costs
Our freedom's lost
The death of liberty

Tell the truth
If you've got something to say
No blood for oil, killing fields
Halliburton money
Wounded troops left to rot
No help from the VA
These troubled times
Bringing on our darkest days

Is this the death of liberty
Is this the price that life has come to mean
All our friends, now enemies
The misery of

Bleeding
To my country
The mounting costs
Our freedom's lost
The death of liberty

Speak the truth or Throw it away

Is this the death of liberty
Is this the price that life has come to mean
All our friends, now enemies
The misery of

Bleeding
To my country
The mounting costs
Our freedom's lost
The death of liberty




3. FEAR IS OUR TRADITION

The deformation of this land
That I hold dear
The fornication of our rights
Forgotten
Fit the mold or at odds be damned

Fear is our tradition
Rise from the sheep we are
Face your destination
Or be predetermined
We'll find our own way out

Trust the plain and simple minds
So moronic
Feel the knife inside our backs
Still thrusting
Sheltered eyes
See blind

Fear is our tradition
Rise from the sheep we are
Face your destination
Or be predetermined
We'll find our own way out

Seek the truth
Or pay the price
Turn off the box
Think for yourself
Hang from your mind
Within your cell
Remember what it's like to care
Bring about change

Fear is out tradition
Fear is our tradition
Rise from the sheep we are
Face your destination
Or be predetermined
We'll find our own way out




4. LET IT BURN

I'm thinking it through
I'm thinking of you
Try to remind myself to move
The nightmare unfolds
Should have never let her go
Alone in this empty room
Let it burn

I'm thinking of you
I'm thinking it through
I try to remind myself to move
I wait by the phone
You're never coming home

Let it burn, let it bleed
Let it go that Sunday morning
I don't understand
Just give her one more chance
May angels keep her safe tonight
I'm doing all I can
Let it burn

It was a cold winter's day
The streets were wet with rain
Another drink, one for the ride
He turned the key
And started to drive
I wish I never let her go
I wish I could just push rewind
So young and so alive

Let it burn, let it bleed
Let it go that Sunday morning
I don't understand
Just give her one more chance
May angels keep her safe tonight
I'm doing all I can
Let it burn

Let it burn, let it bleed
But this time I pierced my heart
Beneath my skin
Let it burn, let it bleed
What a price, life torn apart
From one man's sin

I don't understand
Just give her one more chance
May angels keep her safe tonight
I'm doing all I can
Let it burn




5. POVERTY FOR ALL

Sold by your own
October revolution
Out to the streets
To fight against the tyranny
In 56' we fought the occupation
The young and old
Against the Communist regime

The sorrow, a so-called liberation
The sorrow, a violent domination
Sorrow, the humiliation
Fifty years, the death of a nation

Poverty for all
But freedom's the exception
The Proletariat, now the
Red Bourgeoisie
The murder, the torture
The terror, the famine
Fifty years under the
Communist regimes

The sorrow, a so-called liberation
The sorrow, a violent domination
Sorrow, the humiliation
Fifty years, the death of a nation

The price of freedom,
is worth it to me
Fighting
A revolution
Fighting
For human rights
The Cheka, the Stazi
The human tragedies
The casualties of the state
Fifty years,
a tragic philosophy
Fifty years,
collective suffering
Fifty years,
we're the casualties
of the state

The sorrow, a so-called liberation
The sorrow, a violent domination
Sorrow, the humiliation
Fifty years, the death of a nation




6. MY JUDGEMENT DAY

Success
I'm able to live my life in my way
Luck never gives, it lends
If you're willing to pay
I'm broken, but I'll mend
All I have is today
Yes, I'm broken, but I'll mend
Screaming, God please help save me

Tired of running out
I'm praying so much more
I'm thinking about going down
Down this broken, empty road

Progress
Has taken its toll
But I've changed my ways
I've pain all my amends
Before it was too late
I'm broken, but I'll mend
All I have is today
Screaming God please this time
Don't forget about me

Tired of running out
I'm praying so much more
I'm thinking about going down
Down this lonely road
I'm living from hand to mouth
Just like the times before
I'm tired of running around
Down this broken, empty road

Success, I'm blessed
For all I have today
Regrets, obsessed
This time I will obtain
What I've been waiting for
This is my judgement day

Tired of running out
I'm praying so much more
I'm thinking about going down
Down this lonely road
I'm living from hand to mouth
Just like the times before
I'm tired of running around
Down this broken, empty road




7. SLOWDOWN

Down and out
In Budapest and Los Angeles
I drank a river to forget
To forget about the coming storm
The curtains are down
The lights are off
And the doors are closed
I think about this life I've known
And I hope this time
I won't let it go

Will you catch me when I run
Will you stop me when I'm done
When the day is through
All I want to do is slow down
When I call on you
Will you help me to slow down

I walk alone through this place
I can't find my way
This house is just an empty space
I never felt it was my home
Where've you been
I stole, I lied
I've hurt, I've sinned
My path has led
Me here again
There's splinters in my
Knees and bones

Will you catch me when I run
Will you stop me when I'm done
When the day is through
All I want to do is slow down
When I call on you
Will you help me to slow down

Every time I start to break
You pull me back
And help me stay
You struggle with me
There's splinters in my
Knees and bones
I try to find my
Way back home
You struggle with me
I try to find my way

Will you catch me when I run
Will you stop me when I'm done
When the day is through
All I want to do is slow down
When I call on you
Will you help me to slow down




8. SAVE YOURSELF

Everything you've said to me
Has been constant lies
Everyday you fail to see
I'm trying to help you
I'm losing grip on you
Can't seem to pull this though
You fight, can't win
Your time, at hand

Where is your belief
Can you save yourself
One more time, one more lie
Will it ever end

More repetition of your failing ways
More ammunition, come and
Put you in your final place
Can't stand to see you lose
Your saving grace
Your fight, can't win
Your time, at hand

Where is your belief
Can you save yourself
One more time, one more lie
Make it through another night
You're drowning in these waters
One more time, one more lie
Will it ever end

Everything you said to me was a lie
I'm losing grip on you
Can't seem to pull this through
You count your days
You change your ways
You're pushing, it's certain
Toward that final curtain
Tearing you apart
You're falling, you're failing
Alone in all your ailing
Here we go again
Where is your belief
Can you save yourself
One more time, one more lie
Make it through another night
You're drowning in these waters
One more time, one more lie
Will it ever end




9. ARE YOU LISTENING

You said you'd make a change
Instead you let the days
Just pass you by
All this time, wasted time
Why did you even try

And if it falls apart
At least I took a chance
Are you listening
I'm sorry
You're not the one
But I'm still here
I'm sorry
Your day has come

You think of no one else
Your talk is cheap
You've got nothing good to say
All your words, empty words
I hear them everyday

And if it falls apart
At least I took a chance
Are you listening
I'm sorry
You're not the one
But I'm still here
I'm sorry
Your day has come




10. THREE YEARS

The writing on the wall
The words that I can't read

Three years, is a long, long time
Your heart beats close to mine
There's no wrong or right
When it breaks
It breaks so miserably
I'm leaving constantly
You always said that
"I feel dead, nothing left for me"

The writing on the wall
The words that I can't read
I refuse to let this bury me

Three years, were the best of times
A time of sacrifice
There's no wrong or right
When it breaks
It breaks so miserably
My world got in the way
I've paid the price
The constant lies, opened up my eyes

The writing on the wall
The words that I can't read
I refuse to let this bury me
The writing on the wall
The words that I can't read
I think about you constantly

All the obstacles in my head now
I feel nothing, what was said
I hear nothing, and I feel no pain
All the obstacles in my head

I look at life through
Black eyes now
My mind, it screams to slow down
I hit a wall every single day
My worst fears, staring back at me
When it breaks, it breaks so miserably
I'm leaving constantly
You always said
"I feel dead, nothing left for me"
The writing on the wall
The words that I can't read
I refuse to let this bury me




11. KNOW YOUR HISTORY

You want to take a stand
You haven't made a plan
Your new crusades bring misery
Better know your history

You spot your was disease
Bring this nation to its knees
The largest debt we've ever seen
Better know your history

Under the burning sun
Another dead hero
This road we're walking on
To reap what we have sown
A lockdown, here we go again

Foreign aid with strings attached
Cut down the working class
The World Bank creeps
In sheep's clothing
Better know your history

The masses, so dent and blind
We're back to the Roman times
The truth is now the enemy
Better know your history

My family lived through both regimes
The rising tide of lies and mass deceit
They'll tell you what to think
And what to say Know your history

You send the poor to fight
Then praise the religious right
A sacrilegious blasphemy
Better know your history

An empire of greedy thieves
Bring the nation to its knees
The new world corporatocracy
Better know your history

History
For the past to repeat
Is your destiny
History
I know we're going to pay
To history




12. STRENGTH

Give me strength
To hold my head up high
And spit back in their face
Give me the keys
To unlock these doors
And leave this world a better place

Sitting in a low lit room
What am I supposed to do
I'll stand my ground and fight for you

Hold my hand
And I'll help you through this
Don't you give up now
I want to help another
Persevere my brother

Sitting in a low lit room
What am I supposed to do
I'll stand my ground and fight for you
Give me strength

It takes your freedom from you
And leaves you all alone
So change your selfish ways
And leave this world a better place

Give me strength
To hold my head up high
To fight my darkest days
I'm going to start living tonight
And change my messed up ways

Sitting in a low lit room
What am I supposed to do
Sitting in a low lit room
I'll stand my ground and fight for you




13. SUNDAY BLOODY SUNDAY
[Originally by U2]

I can't believe the news today
I can't close my eyes and make it go away
How long?
How long must we sing this song?
How long? How long?
Tonight we can be as one
Tonight

Oh...
Broken bottles under children's feet
Bodies strewn across the dead end street
But I won't heed the battle call
It puts my back up
Puts my back up against the wall

Sunday, Bloody Sunday [x4]

How long?
How long must we sing this song?
How long? How long?
Tonight we can be as one
Tonight...

Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight
Come on, let’s go!!

Wipe the tears from your eyes (Sunday, Bloody Sunday)
Oh, Wipe your tears away (Sunday, Bloody Sunday)
Oh, wipe your blood shot eyes (Sunday, Bloody Sunday)

Sunday, Bloody Sunday [x4]

How long?
How long must we sing this song?
How long? How long?
Tonight we can be as one
Tonight

Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight
Come on, let’s go!!




14. LIVE FOR BETTER DAYS

Save it for tomorrow
Just let me get some sleep in
Let me remand
I wasn't born a failure
Tonight I feel we're sinking
And I'm thinking once again

So I say goodnight
To dreams that won't be realized
I can't sleep with desperation
By my side
The memories start to fade
Now I live for better days

Last night was wrong, it's morning
So tired of these empty feelings in me
I wasn't born a failure
No more living in regret
Stop feeling sorry for yourself

So I say goodnight
To dreams that won't be realized
I can't sleep with desperation
By my side
The memories start to fade
Now I live for better days

I need to end this violence
In this place that I call home
I need to hear some silence
Silence in me

So I say goodnight
To dreams that won't be realized
I can't sleep with desperation
By my side
The memories start to fade
Now I live for better days

Elindultam szép hazámból
Híres kis Magyarországból
Visszanéztem félutamból
Szemembõl a könny kicsordult

Elindultam szép hazámból
Édes kis Magyarországból
Visszanéztem félutamból
Istenem, rendelj szállást
Mert meguntam a bujdosást
A járkálást, a sok sírást

Hazám, hazám, te mindenem!
Tudom, hogy életem neked köszönhetem
Arany mezõk, ezüst folyók
Hõs vértõl ázottak, könnytõl áradók

Éjjel-nappal a sok sírást
A járkálást, a bujdosást
Idegen földön való lakást
