Lyrics for the album Lead Sails Paper Anchor by Atreyu

1. Doomsday


Go
A rush of blood
To my head leaves me winded and wanting
To feel the weakness in my body
Beaten and crushed like my soul
I walked the streets flirting death
But I never kissed back
I'm so lucky so cursed so fucked up
But that's the way that it goes
Its the ebb and the flow
I wish that I could give you my time
Give you my time

Seems that doomsday has come early this year
The last angel has gone
I can't remember the last time I cried
The last angel has gone home

The memories stacking up
And they pull at my guts
What do I have to do to end it
The better days hacked away
Leaving me only pain
This regret is never ending
But in the blink of an eye
This life passes you by
I wish that I could give you my time
Give you my time

Seems that doomsday has come early this year
The last angel has gone
I can't remember the last time I cried
The last angel has gone home

I can't remember
I can't remember
I can't remember the last time I cried

Seems that doomsday has come early this year
The last angel has gone
I can't remember the last time I cried
The last angel has gone home


2. Honor


Resolute a stance of defiance
Always teetering on the bring
Nothing can hold you back when
When you're not holding back a thing
Open arms we embrace tomorrow
Closed fists, tarnishing today
We're not afraid to open our mouths and scream
We believe in what we say

[chorus:]
Like a whisper to the dusk
An oath against the shadows
Denying the dark
FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT 'til the break of dawn
Like a prayer unto the dawn
In arms against the shadows
Destroying the dark
FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT 'til the break of dawn

Covered in sweat and blood
Yet still out heads held high
Actions have consequences
When you life for foolish pride
Been careful not to lose ourselves
Stand together one passion, one hate
We believe in a better tomorrow
We believe in what we say

[chorus:]
Like a whisper to the dusk
An oath against the shadows
Denying the dark
FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT 'til the break of dawn
Like a prayer unto the dawn
In arms against the shadows
Destroying the dark
FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT 'til the break of dawn
FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT 'til the break of dawn

We'll fight out battles we'll wage our wars
Settle the scores weith honor and blood
We'll wear out scars like medals of hope
Like medals of hope
Like medals of hope
We'll fight out battles we'll wage our wars
Settle the scores weith honor and blood
We'll wear out scars like medals of hope
Like medals of hope
Like medals of hope

[chorus:]
Like a whisper to the dusk
An oath against the shadows
Denying the dark
FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT 'til the break of dawn
Like a prayer unto the dawn
In arms against the shadows
Destroying the dark (whisper to the dusk)
In arms against the shadows
Destroying the dark (whisper to the dusk)
In arms against the shadows
Destroying the dark (whisper to the dusk )
FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT 'til the break of dawn
FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT 'til the break of dawn
FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT 'til the break of dawn
FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT 'til the break of dawn


3. Falling Down


You're always looking back,
runnin' from the past.
You're always sweating me about the next big heart attack.
You're lookin' over your shoulder starin' down the path.
(I'm fallin' down)
Fallin' down
Fallin' down

It's in your head all the voices mistaken,
shake it off shake it off.
We're all dyin' in the end.

[Chorus x2]

I terrorize me images so horrible,
so horrible
To clear my thoughts I drill a hole into my skull
clean up my brains and sweep them underneath the rug
I need them more than I needed any other drug
I'm fallin' down
fallin' down
fallin' down

It's in your head all the voices mistaken
shake it off shake it off
we're all dyin' in the end.

[Chorus x2]

Hey, hey, hey
Come on

I'm fallin' down
fallin' down
fallin' down

It's in your head all the voices mistaken
shake it off shake it off
we're all dyin' in the end

It's in your head all the voices mistaken
shake it off shake it off
we're all dyin' in the end


4. Becoming The Bull


Come on!!!
Grab the bull by the horns the old adage goes.
Nobody tells you where to go from here.
Seems like fates pulling you.
Decisions have to be made.
The the best path is the hardest earned.
Back and forth the struggle consumes us all.
Trying to keep a level head.
In the most unsettling of times.
Today I'll become the bull.
There is so much to stake.
I stumble, I lose my place.
Pride and arrogance surrounded by sin.
Destiny takes its hold.
Fight it or let it go.
But I choose how the day will end.
Back and forth the struggle consumes us all.
Trying to keep a level head.
In the most unsettling of times.
Today I'll become the bull. [x2]
This walk can get lonley
I lose myself inside my head.
No one can touch you when you're outside staring in.
Remove myself from this rat race.
Back and forth the struggle consumes us all.
Trying to keep a level head.
The most unsettling of times.
Today I'll become the bull. [x5]


5. When Two Are One


Bang!
Explosions in my head that just won't quit
A train has crashed into the wall around my heart
And left the old me dead, obliterated.

Stop!
My breathing in the night when you're not there
The silence ringing through my ears
And all I want to do is hear your voice
But you're not there

Drawn together
Painter's brush stoke
Sleight of hand we
We won't go up in smoke
Fates colliding
Love undying

[Chorus (2x):]
Like the rising tide
Beating hearts grow but never die
To simplify
I'll stand by your side
Close my eyes
Hope will never die

[Instrumental Break]

Go!
And take away the pain of being me
Soothe my soul, caress my heart
And end my fear, all my bad memories
Eradicated

Ring!
Like gunshots herd against the silent night
My love is louder than these words.
They're stronger than the rest, unstoppable
Unstoppable

Drawn together
Painter's brush stoke
Sleight of hand we
We won't go up in smoke
Fates colliding
Love undying

[Chorus (2x)]

DIE......

Drawn together
Painter's brush stoke
Sleight of hand we
We won't go up in smoke
Fates colliding
Love undying

[Chorus (2x)]

DIE......

Yeah.........


6. Lose It


Standing on the edge,
battle in my head,
I'm dying to know
I'm dying to know

If I take this leap,
to fail or succeed,
I'm dying to know
I'm dying to know

This is it I'm shaking.
My body's aching,
I lose my hold,
I will let go.
This is it, I'm falling.
My wings need to grow.
I lose my hold,
I will let go.

There's so many roads,
pitfalls filled with doubt.
I'm dying to know,
I'm dying to know.

Grabbing what I need,
Grip until it bleeds.
I'm dying to know,
I'm dying to know.

This is it, I'm shaking.
My body's aching,
I lose my hold,
I will let go.
This is it, I'm falling.
My wings need to grow.
I lose my hold,
I will let go.

(Bum, Bum, Bum, Bum, Bum, Bum, Bum, Bum, Bum, Bum, Bum, Bum, Bum, Bum, Bum, Bum, Bum, Bum, Bum)

If I,
If I take this, this leap,
will I be broken?
I'm dying to know

This is it, I'm shaking.
My body's aching,
I lose my hold,
I will let go.
I lose my hold,
this is it I'm falling.
I lose my hold,
my wings need to grow,
I lose my hold,
I will let go
I will let go.

I will let go!


7. No One Cares


(I'm so tired)

All riled up, I can taste the winter.
I would shut up, if I thought that it mattered.

That's what it feels like,
when you're stitched into the skin.
I feel stuck, and no one thinks something's missing.
(Something's missing)

No one cares, no one listens,
screaming words that you fake hearin'.
No one cares, no one listens anymore
(No one listens anymore)

My eyes burn as I bury how I'm feelin'
close my eyes it's my life that I've been stealing
if it's all right, why do I feel a sense of longing
I had it all, and yet I thought that something's missin'
something's missing

No one cares, no one listens
screaming words that you fake hearin'
no one cares
no one listens anymore

[Chorus x2]

So paranoid I've been hiding from the sun
I'm tired of being afraid of everything and everyone
Oh, so tired

No one cares, no one listens
screaming words that you fake hearin'
no one cares
no one listens anymore

[Chorus x3]


8. Can't Happen Here


[Verse 1]
Chariots clashed in the dead of night
Subversiveness clouds the clearest of minds
Blink of an eye we're collateralized
Raised up in arms never knowing why

[Pre-Chorus:]
We get what we take when we take nothing
Pull the helmet from your eyes
We're erased and betrayed by mistakes

[Chorus:]
Does your god know my god?
This is how the world will end.

[Verse 2]
And it begs the questions
When bullets cloud the sky
Taking away the pain of
Thinking for ourselves
Demons beat down
They beat down our doors
And it begs the question
Could this scene be real
Stealing away our children
Taking away our dreams!

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus]


9. Slow Burn


It begins with a dark glowing ember,
something black burning it's way out of me.
Searing the flesh,
pain is the only thing I feel,
scars all I see.

Oh no the fire's burning my insides again,
what can I do to silence my desire tonight?
Flames consuming reason leaving only ashes left
you will catch me for regretting my decision,
I can't keep telling myself what I want to hear,
I can't just close my eyes.

I know that it's killing me,
and it's poisoning the best in me,
but I say, I don't want to believe.
what i see, I don't want to believe.
So let me tell you more (tell you more)
about the lies I lead.

That is how i choose to douce the flames in gasoline
Broken teeth replace the blackout memories in my head
Wreckage from the past haunts me, shake me to the bone
(to the bone)
I know it's over but I can't go home tonight.

But after this I feel as empty as the night before,
feel the pain and yet I'm still begging for more.
Masochistic, nihilistic, urging backward thought
My life's a mess and I can't find a way to fix it.

I can't keep telling myself what I want to hear,
I can't just close my eyes
(my eyes, my eyes, my fucking eyes)

I know that it's killing me,
and it's poisoning the best of me,
What I see, I don't want to believe.
So let me tell you more, tell you more,
about the lies I lead.

Calling, calling out.
The darkest reaches of my soul,
are riddled with self-doubt.
Crawling, crawling out,
my will to fight will more than suffice,
when others would lay down.

It's only as dark as you make it.

I know that it's killing me,
and it's poisoning the best of me,
but I say, I don't want to believe.
So let me tell you more, tell you more
about the lies I lead.


10. Blow

Oh my god did you just hear
lies are coming back in style?

We're not sorry and we won't conform.
It's not our choice but something inborn.
If we fail followin' are hearts
can you blame us? (No, no, no)

A square peg in a black hole
We don't fit in that's the way it goes.
You should of not thought you're better than us,
no, you're not.
(No, no, no)

What they say, won't make us go away.

So fuckin' blow those words out the back of your head,
I've heard it all and I'm done with that shit,

(Blow, blow, blow)
Blow those fuckin' words out the back of your head.

Tell yourself yourself you're not alone at all.
(Looking out your window, know you're all alone)
Oh, tell yourself you're not alone at all. (At all)
(Staring out your window, know you're alone)

What they say, won't make us go away.
Go away, go away, go away.

You tell me lies,

Blow those fuckin' words out the back of your head.
(Of your head, of your head, of your head)
Yea!


11. Lead Sails (And A Paper Anchor)


Marching alone, like a good soldier does
I'm setting sail, with anchors holding me down
Pack up my bags, stow them away
I'm bidding farewell to all that is safe

Will I come up for air, come up for air
After awhile the current is calling me
Lulling me, waving goodbye
I'm out here alone, oh God can you save me now?
Sinking my heart turns to stone

Withering away, a shrinking violet dies
So full of life, these lights have dried me out
Into the sea, I needed a drink
I never thought this would consume me whole

Will I come up for air, come up for air
After awhile the current is calling me
Lulling me, waving goodbye
I'm out here alone, oh God can you save me now?
Sinking my heart turns to stone
(I turn to stone)
Sinking my heart turns to stone
Save me, take me home
Over and over again
Save me, take me home
Wishing that this all would end
Save me, take me home
Over and over again
Save me, take me home
Wishing that this all would end

After awhile the current is calling me
Lulling me, waving goodbye
I'm out here alone, oh God can you save me now?
Sinking my heart turns to stone
After awhile the current is calling me
Lulling me, waving goodbye
I'm out here alone, oh God can you save me now?
Sinking my heart turns to stone
Sinking my heart turns to stone

Save me take me home
When I come up for air
Save me take me home
When I come up for air
Save me take me home
Over and over again
Save me take me home

Wishing that all this would end


12. Epic


[Faith No More Cover]

Can you feel it, see it, hear it today?
If you can't, then it doesn't matter anyway
You will never understand it cuz it happens too fast
And it feels so good, it's like walking on glass
It's so cool, it's so hip, it's alright
It's so groovy, it's outta sight
You can touch it, smell it, taste it so sweet
But it makes no difference cuz it knocks you off your feet

You want it all but you can't have it

It's cryin', bleedin', lying on the floor
So you lay down on it and you do it some more
You've got to share it, so you dare it
Then you bare it and you tear it

You want it all but you can't have it
It's in your face but you can't grab it

It's alive, afraid, a lie, a sin
It's magic, it's tragic, it's a loss, it's a win
It's dark, it's moist, it's a bitter pain
It's sad it happened and it's a shame

You want it all but you can't have it
It's in your face but you can't grab it

What is it?
It's it
What is it?...


13. Clean Sheets


[Bonus Track]

[Descendents cover]

Clean sheets mean a lot,
To a guy who sleeps on the floor,
I whited your love,
An a Shelf in your dresser draw,
You tucked me in,
Stopped my tossing and turning,
But I turned back the covers,
And saw those sheets are dirty.

[Chorus:]
Even though you'll never come clean,
You know it's true,
Those sheets are dirty,
and so are you.

The warmth of a bed,
To a guy that sleeps on the floor,
was enough to perpetuate,
All the lies I heard before,
I want to hold you,
I hold my pill instead
Because my pillow will never lie
or be with a Stranger in my bed.

[Chorus]

Where's the love I was looking for,
It's out the door,
I'm afraid to see you anymore,
So it's back on the floor,
'cause those sheets are dirty.

Woke up this morning,
alone on the floor,
Thinking about those clean sheets
and the way it was before,
When I looked in the mirror,
I saw your face and thought of the past,
But now I know how dirty you are,
I took my fist and smashed the glass.

[Chorus x2]

Those sheets are dirty. [x3]
