When you asked the question if you can love me Answer remains the same as the first day I crave your touch all over my body I crave your touch all over my body Toxic running in my veins Toxic burning into wild flames You running in me thin You running under my skin I question if we’re real You run to keep me filled You always ask my call when I get home But I’m frightened the best in the worst way I crave you there if we hurt ourselves I crave your touch on the deepest of my cuts Toxic running in my veins Toxic burning into wild flames You running in me thin You running under my skin I question if we’re real You run to keep me filled Toxic ruining in my head Toxic cutting my threat Toxic running in my head Toxic running You running in me thin You running under my skin I question if we’re real You run to keep me filled

I know what you do When you’re looking at me You think no one’s looking But I see what I see I’m ready, I’m ready, I’m all ready for you I’m ready, I’m ready, I’m all ready for you It’s gonna run over Its gonna run deep When I look in your eyes, I run real deep You copy me and everywhere that I be You think you know me, but I gotta be a mystery I don’t even have to say a word you know what I mean I’m ready, I’m ready, I’m ready for you I’m ready, I’m ready, I’m ready for you It’s gonna run over It’s gonna run deep When I look in your eyes, I run real deep It’s gonna boil over You’re gonna ruin me When I look in your eyes, I don’t know who I wanna be It’s gonna run over We’re gonna run deep When I look in your eyes You go real deep (Are you ready for it, the change of your life Are you ready for love at first sight) Hit it up before you start begging You know I won’t be so easy, when you’re asking the second time You know those games be hurting your feelings It’s gonna run over It’s gonna run deep When I look in your eyes, I run real deep It’s gonna boil over You’re gonna ruin me When I look in your eyes, I don’t know who I wanna be

I see a forest in my distant view I’ve come to see you after I have moved You live in a forest, smothered in weed We covered this time and it wasn’t like it was before You didn’t come through my door You came to inflict the damage on your opponent You came to inflict the damage on your own game You came to inflict the damage on your opponent But the only person hurting is yourself Hold on, hold on, I see your hurtin’ there Hold on, I said hold on Not everyone in the world is bad I see we’re in it In way with rules I thought I knew you Only you were cruel You live in a forest In a haze of missing thoughts My love has lost all his mind And he can’t find the light You came to inflict the damage on your opponent You came to inflict the damage on your own game You came to inflict the damage on your opponent But the only person hurtin' is yourself Hold on, hold on, I see your hurtin’ there Hold on, I said hold on Not everyone in the world is bad If you’re not outraged You haven’t opened your eyes If you’re not outraged You haven’t opened up your mind Hold on, hold on, I see your hurtin’ there Hold on, I said hold on Not everyone in the world is bad

We left things in shambles We left things undone We couldn’t handle anymore So we left it on the floor High, high, high, high again High, high, high, high again Break, breakthrough my window Break, breakthrough my window You left me to tremble You left me by myself Where I couldn’t handle any more So I left myself on the floor Hi, hi, hi, hi, hi my old friend I died, died, died seeing you again Break, breakthrough the window Break, breakthrough my window I just got to get the hell out of here, its time to let go Break, breakthrough my window Break, breakthrough my window Break, breakthrough the pain I don’t wanna be a victim of living this way Break, breakthrough the window Break, breakthrough my window I just got to get the hell out of here, its time to let go Break, breakthrough my window

Violate 02:50
You fucked it The earth now has no water Down beneath the shadow they’d say we’d never fall Follow the dark Down where nothing ever happens Your way of life isn’t healthy Your way of life violates your own beliefs Hurt your head bad where nothing’s feeling Burnt air, bruised lung, heart like a thread Down, beneath your head, Down, where nothing ever happens Your way of life isn’t healthy Your way of life violates your own beliefs

These four walls are tall Surround me round, go beneath me Secure grounding when I fall down And now your hand goes a little too strong You’re going a little too strong Have a look around, have a look around Go underneath me Underneath me Have a look around, have a look around Go, go Have a look around, have a look around Go underneath it of it Underneath it of it all, all, all, all, all You around, I crawl Softly thinking all your talking I go shy and cover my myself Good things insist on getting too close You’re getting a little too close, close Have a look around, have a look around Go underneath me Underneath me Have a look around, have a look around Go, go Have a look around, have a look around Go underneath it of it Underneath it of it all, all, all, all, all Ha hide Beauty lies In the back of my mind, I see myself being with you I’d like to think thats how you wanted it too I exist to resist, I want things I cannot change Doubtful dictate, all the things you can’t erase I’ll try my best, to stay tall, stay strong Imagine if I could, all that I would do its they’ve raised me, its how they’ve built and how I’ve stood, no matter what you give, and all you take Have a look around, have a look around Go underneath me Underneath me Have a look around, have a look around Go, go Have a look around, have a look around Go underneath it of it Underneath it of it all, all, all, all, all

Deep in the recesses of life We captured all the moments that we were here And long before the moon and hit the sunshine We’re was creeping as the weak I wore a shield around my bed, my bed of sin and holy goes Got remembered things, all the good things now I wore shield I wore shield I wore shield I wore shield Picking the grey out of sunshine Remembering why you are here
You'll never ever find the answers But got to find more from it I wore a shield around my bed, my bed of sin and holy goes Got remembered things, all the good things now I wore shield I wore shield I wore shield I wore shield Into the day, into the day, I gotta be brave Into the day, into the day, I gotta be brave, oh Into the day, into the day, I gotta be brave oh I, Into the day, into the day, I gotta be brave I wore shield I wore shield I wore shield I wore shield
8.
You kept it on the short side I never thought that you had it in you Speaking it like a champion You’ve got the talk to break a mountain and the whole damn town I wanna go home where I’ll never ever see you again, Again, again, again, again, again, Its the trouble of loving the champion Its the trouble of loving the hardest to get The champion who’s loving the champion The champion building the championship Move past the lies And go where you haven’t been Move past the mind And go where you haven’t been When you throw your parties You kept the center of attention Make up that horny mind Shows that you can’t look past a mirror to save your own life I wanna go home where I’ll never ever see you again, Again, again, again, again, again, Its the trouble of loving the champion Its the trouble of loving the hardest to get The champion who’s loving the champion The champion building the championship Move past the lies And go where you haven’t been Move past the mind And go where you haven’t been Do you see the people? Standing in a line Do you see the people? Standing in your line They’d kill for things you take for granted They’d kill for things they don’t have They’d kill just to be remembered But they have the thing you’ll never have Move past the lies And go where you haven’t been Move past the mind And go where you haven’t been

Can someone place a cover over my eyes? And shock me down to sleep were the bed lies Can someone sit these shivers roaming my mind? And tell them that its gonna be alright I can’t seem I can’t seem to let it go I can’t seem I can’t seem to let it go Can someone take me farther than the city? And make me laugh the way that I use too Can someone lift the reasons of my being? And softly touch my hand like a baby I can’t seem I can’t seem to let it go I can’t seem I can’t seem to let it go Running over fields Running over meadows Running over fields
Running over meadow I can’t seem I can’t seem to let it go I can’t seem I can’t seem to let it go

Down by the road untraveled We kept this whole, big secret Hidden in the forest, oh Locked up where it could be Ha, ha, ha, ho Hide heed hi ho oh I can’t seem to find this, this iron drum Hide heed hi ho oh I can’t seem to this this, iron drum Ill follow you into the dark, into the dark, into the dark, Ill follow you into the dark, into the dark, into the dark, Into dark, yeah, into the dark, Yeah, into the dark 
Struck in a valley of thorns I sacrificed myself over, to you, now you left a bruise Buts just how it goes Lord, how did I get so small? Hide heed hi ho oh I can’t seem to find this, oh, this iron drum Hide heed hi ho oh I can’t seem to this this, this, iron drum Ill follow you into the dark, into the dark, into the dark, Ill follow you into the dark, into the dark, into the dark, Into the dark Yeah, into the dark Yeah, into the dark Let yourself be free Erase all your history in me (Copperhead) I’ve been thinking but I’m lost for thoughts Hypnotized, but I got a thirst I’ve being craving but I got a lot Over this but but I’m scared to cross I’m over everything I’m over mountains Thorns in the valley and they go swarming in and they go real deep Thorns in my tummy and the go swarming in and they go real deep I’ve been a little too afraid My whole home, eaten like the fist to a pie And I’ve seen an evil king, roam, around He has tired me to the ground I’m over everything I’m over mountains I’m over everything I’m over mountains Thorns in the valley and they go swarming in and they go real deep Thorns in my tummy and the go swarming in and they go real deep Outro (Into the Dark prelude “Cobra’s Lullaby”) Let yourself be free Erase all your history, in me Let yourself be free, And become the mystery that you always wanted to be

I opened the window I didn’t look down I got too scared Thinking I’d drown I got too scared Thinking I’d drown Thinking I’d beat myself to the ground I opened the window I didn’t look down I got to scared Thinking I’d drown I die, I die, I die I opened the window I saw grace She’s looking at me laughing in my place
12.
I felt so hazy today You kept so tight, that I, well I stayed It hurt so strangely, the pain You got me your way, yeah, your way Blow it away oh why, why today?
Hello? hello? Felt too easy to play Didn’t come so far to change But the guard dogs, they howl And I never thought it would happen this way Blow it away oh why, why the meaning of today? Oh, madness over my mind Oh, madness over your pride Held up lately by fate Little too scared to wait But I know you can’t And the best of me understands Oh, blow it away Oh, why the meaning of today? Oh, madness over my mind Oh, madness over my pride Oh, madness over your mind Oh, madness over your pride Keep it steady, keep it meek In a prophecy that we keep Hit it, ring me, string it along Sick of feelin’ sittin’ so wrong Wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong Oh, madness over my mind Oh, madness over my pride Oh, madness over your mind Oh, madness over your pride

What’s the use in trying, you’re so tired, impaired What’s the use in looking up, when you don’t got air Clap your hands to the beat of my drum, the machine drum, yeah C.A.P., got the best of you and me we got cozy and lost ourselves in midst of the machine that they told would be, C.A.P., got the best of you and me we got lazy C.A.P., you stolen all the money C.A.P., you got the best of you and me You stolen all the money
You need me to run, you need me to run, You need me to run, you need me to run What’s the use in begging, when a king don’t share What’s the use in praying, when your god don’t care Clap your hands to the beat of my drum, the machine drum, yeah C.A.P., got the best of you and me we got cozy and lost ourselves in midst of the machine that they told would be, C.A.P., got the best of you and me, we got lonely C.A.P., you stolen all the money C.A.P., you got the best of you and me You stolen all the money
You need me to run, you need me to run, You need me to run, you need me to run Into the night, night, night, I’m sick of the sunshine Into the night, night, night, I’m sick of the sunshine Into the night, night, night, I’m sick of the sunshine Into the night, night, night, I’m sick C.A.P., you stolen all the money C.A.P., you got the best of you and me You stolen all the money
You need me to run, you need me to run, You need me to run, you need me to run
