Beneath The Sky

What Demons Do to Saints tracks

Lyrics

1. GOODFELLAS

Every day is a nightmare;
With every night there lies a dream.
[4x]

These faces are fading away with every word,
Every word you say.
Now what is it that you really want?
That you're looking for?
Bow down and pray,
Never to obey.
What's the question?
What's the answer?
It can't save you.
It can't save you.
It can't save you.

They want power, we want respect.
They want power, we want respect.

Live by your own words and your own dreams,
Never break this oath.
Don't let them tell you what to do,
Never how to think.
Now what is it that you really want?
That you're looking for?
Now you know the question and you know the answer
You get what you fucking deserve.

They want power, we want respect.
They want power, we want respect.

Make the best of what you've got.
Make the best of what you are.
[4x]




2. FOR EACH REMEMBERED NAME

There is a list of names
All written in a book.
I know that every year I take a look.
These names are a part
Not of the book they're written in
But in my very heart

My life is so much better
Than it was before you came.
My life is so much better
Than it was before you came.

Once you've known someone the years cannot erase
The memory of a pleasant word
Or of a friendly face.
When I send out my love,
That's addressed to you,
'Cause you're on the list of names
I am indebted to
When I send out my love,
That's addressed to you,
'Cause I have a list of names
And I included you.

It's only the thought that counts
(The thought that counts)
It's only the thought that counts
(The thought that counts)
Every year I realize
The biggest gift that God can give
Is knowing people just like you.
I feel composed of each remembered name.
You may not be aware
Of feeling quite the same
[Repeat]

Whether I've known you many years or few
You will always have a part
In shaping the things I do

It's only the thought that counts
(The thought that counts)
It's only the thought that counts
(The thought that counts)
It's all for you, it's all for you.




3. A GRAVE MISTAKE

She says I wouldn't understand.
She screams "You don't know what it's like!
To cut yourself to live again, to pop some pills to love again.
To cut yourself to live again, to pop some pills to love again.”

Sure, I've tried. But now.

[Chorus:]
She wakes up crying in her bed all alone.
She wakes to find herself.
She wakes up crying in her bed all alone.
She wakes to find herself to be... all alone.

I'll take your fucking name all the way to the goddamn grave.
I'll take your fucking name all the way to the goddamn GRAVE!
'Til death do we part, 'til death do we part.

Sometimes we've got to fall,
Learn to stand.
Sometimes we've got to fall
Just to learn to love ourselves again.

There's more to life than just this.
There's more to life than just this.
There's more to life than just this.

[Chorus]

It was never supposed to be this way, but I still fall for you.
It was never supposed to be this way, how I still fall for you…

How I still fall for you…
Bury the past, there's more to life than just this.
[Repeat]




4. LAST CALL

She dances around with a drink in hand,
He walks around with a smoke in hand.
She dances around to find the right man,
He walks around to find a one night stand.

Roses are red, violets are blue,
I'll save this last dance just to be with you.
Roses are red, violets are blue,
I'll save this last dance just to be with you.
I am the man she's looking for,
I am her man tonight.

It's 2 a.m. and it's time to go,
Let me guess you need a ride home.
It's 2:01 and it's time to go,
Hop in my car and let's hit the road to play.

We're finally here
Your room is upstairs
It's just a one night stand
Who really cares?
We're finally here
Your room is upstairs
She leads the way
It's time to play

Gimme some of that sugar (Baby!)
[8x]

I feel so good,
I feel so bad.
I feel so right,
I feel so wrong.
(Repeat)

Good morning, what's her face?
[4x]
We ended a night (We can't replace)
[4x]

Gimme some of that sugar (Baby!)
[3x]
Gimme some of that sugar (Oh yeah!)




5. 7861

7861 Blackthorne.
[Repeat]

They found the body hanging from the ceiling.
Once again staring down at a casket.
Run far away from the casket.
And don't let me go back inside.
Now are you set free?

Now are you set free?
That you left us in your cage.
Now once again something apart of my life dies again and lives again.

What made you decide that the only way, is the wrong way?
Was it the thought of failure?
Or was it the girl?
Or was it the drugs that became your friends that night?

Look at you now!
Look what you've done!
I can't promise you a rose garden.

Can you see her? (this vision with closed eyes)
Watching you (I'm not ready for this)
Through her eyes (it's time for the final act)
Can you see?
Do you believe? (as the curtains close)
Will you save me? (as the curtains closed, as the curtains closed)

Now don't ever hear me wrong.
These years have passed me by, and I'm still wondering why?
Why a man would take his life?
(Take his life)
I still love you my friend.

They look at me now!
They know what I've done!
They can't promise me a rose garden.

Can you see her? (this vision with closed eyes)
Watching you (I'm not ready for this)
Through her eyes (it's time for the final act)
Can you see?
Do you believe? (as the curtains close)
Will you save me? (as the curtains closed, as the curtains closed)

As you struggle within your noose, what was your last thought?
Just cut your rope!
You could've been saved
Just cut your rope!




6. HOW THE TIMES HAVE CHANGED

Today is the day where redemption sings to me.
For years of doing the devil's work, for years I've tried to find it.
Living every second of the hopeless,
Learning every minute from the powerless.

Through this tunnel
I fear I see the light
I can feel it when I look to the sky

We only see what we want to see,
We only see what we want to see.
Give me the chance,
To prove who I am.
I'll never deny,
There's more to this life than this.

[Chorus:]
Sometimes things are not what they seem
Sometimes things are not what they seem
I have waited so long (Waited so long) to make this your day
Let this moment be the one that you remember forever.
I'm fighting for my life,
This may be the last time.
What can I do to cure this disaster?

Hard to tell who's wrong or right,
Broken pieces, let's put what we still have together (together)
Life was so good when you had control.
How the times have changed, How the times have changed for you.

[Chorus]

I am in control.
How the times have changed…
I am in control of my life.
It never was yours!




7. OUR LAST ROAD

God gave birth to mankind,
Mankind gave birth to war.
God gave birth to mankind,
Mankind gave birth to war.
These consequences only helps to make a change.
These consequences only helps to make a change.
Our weight of existence is growing smaller with every grave mistake.

I stay awake, I stay awake…
Now I stay awake, now I stay awake.
Now I stay awake, now I stay awake.
Now… this was our only fate.
This was our last, last road.

One nation, under God
Nation undone... Nation undone...
Nation undone, done, done.
We become undone!
UN-DONE, UN-DONE.

This is my only way to get through,
This is my only way to get through,
This is my only way to get through,
This is my only way.




8. THE REASON

My love will rise!

This was a story that was foretold by a man, a prophecy.
He gave his son to us, gave his son.
He died for our sins to be forgiven.

This trust I adore,
This trust I need some more (All forget this day)
Today I realize I take everything for granted,
I take everything for granted.
Today I realize I take everything for gra... I adore
This trust I need some more (Punished by destiny)
Today I realize I take everything for granted,
I take everything for granted.
Today I realize I take everything for granted,
I take everything for granted.

You're the reason I feel in love with yesterday,
You're the reason I dream tomorrow,
You're the reason I live today.
You're the reason;
I'll always think of you!
I'll always…




9. BEING IN A COMA IS HELL CARRIED ON

A restless beauty riddled with some bruises and broken bones,
A mother can't recognize her only daughter…

Was it really worth it?!
Was it really worth it?!

[Chorus:]
So you had these dreams?
Just look at what you've done!
Just look at what you've done!

Don't ever put the key in the ignition,
One is too many, and a thousand is never enough.

Metal against metal, misfortunate death
Inflicted by consumption of your poison.

[Chorus]

Floating away from me…
I can see myself, I can see myself…
Reflection in a mirror, I've tried to run but you're so far away
Hold your hands closer to feel my heart beating,
Hold your hands closer to feel me.
Hold your hands closer to feel my heart beating,
Hold your hands closer to feel me.
One day you'll see me in the clouds watching over you.




10. FALLING IN LOVE WITH COLD HANDS

As I walk in a room filled with gloom. I don't know what to do.

[Chorus:]
(Suddenly) Suddenly, my life has changed
As another one's been taken (is it so?)
I find myself in a daze as the sorrow grows (sorrow grows)
Tomorrow I lay alone wandering, wondering.
(I lay alone) Wondering how come? What if? And why?
Suddenly, is it so? (is it so?)
Sorrow grows, I lay alone (I lay alone.)

Please give them words of comfort so they may rest in peace.
Please give them words of comfort so they may rest in peace.

[Chorus]

(I lay alone.)
And I can't stand this bad feeling,
Looking at you across the room today, today.
The sun is shining bright outside,
And I can't stand to fight.
Walking away, walking away today…

Blood in hands, my eyes are shut.
[8x]

Tomorrow I lay alone!

Me! Me! Me! Just let it be!
[4x]




11. GLAMOUR OF CORRUPTION

What will they bring to our attention today?
They only feed you with what you want to hear.

I'm so sick of turning it on, I just wish I could turn it off.
I'm so sick of turning it on, I just wish I could turn it off.

My eyes are blinded by this glamour of corruption.
My ears are deafened by this voice of depression.
Is this something you need just to make you feel alive?

Is this your cry for help? (cry for help)
Nobody's listening but yourself.
[Repeat]

[Chorus:]
I heard it all, I hate it all, why still complain?
In our eyes we have seen what needs changed.

You should have seen this coming, ‘cause it already has.
Is this something you want just to make you feel alive?

[Chorus]

Most of the time I realize that we are better off dead!
Most of the time I realize that we are, that we are better off dead!

Better off dead.
[8x]
