Blackjack

I’m not much of a gambling man

I’d rather stick than twist

But in the proper circumstance

I’ll gladly take a risk

 

I wasn’t dealt the best of hands

I wasn’t dealt the worst

But I never took the chance

Through fear I may be cursed

 

Too afraid of falling

To ever go all in

Never twist on more than sixteen

I don’t care what I am missing

 

I have desires but not an ache

The cards I hold will do

Though there’s one risk I might just take

The chance to be with you

 

For when I close my eyes I see

A scene that seems so real

Beneath the stars, just you and me

So warm it makes me feel

 

But I’m too afraid of falling

To ever go all in

Never twist on more than sixteen

I don’t care what I am missing

 

My heart I now put on the line

I give to you my all

I will be yours, will you be mine

Please save me from this fall

 

Now I’m not afraid of falling

I am going all in

Going to bet every penny

Try my luck and twist on twenty

‘Cause you’re more than worth the risk Continue reading

Ashes

They came one cold December morning

Leaving nothing but embers burning

Beneath a sun we remember dawning

For those we are forever mourning

 

They came without a moment’s warning

Hidden by the snow so heavy falling

They barred the exits and doused the walls

Put flame to timber and watched us burn Continue reading

Worldwide Revolution

It’s time to rise up

It’s time to make it stop

No longer will the minority

Rule over the majority

We don’t need your authority

It’s time for you to see

 

This is the beginning of a worldwide revolution

You fucked up and now we have the solution

You gave us nothing but fear and confusion

So it’s time for a worldwide revolution

 

We’re gonna round up the leaders

And put them in cages

Like they’ve done to us throughout the ages

And let them rule among themselves

 

We’ll tear down parliaments

And bring down the governments

To the bottom of the pile they will be sent

We will take this fractured world, and break it for good

And put it back together again

 

This is the beginning of a worldwide revolution

You fucked up and now we have the solution

You gave us nothing but fear and confusion

So it’s time for a worldwide revolution

Care For You

Where did you go when you walked out the door?

Did you go to the place where I found you before?

I dared not follow lest you not want me there

But I do hope you know that I care

Yes I care

Care for you

 

Why’s it wrong for me to care?

Why do you not want me there?

Why must you be on your own?

Why must you always be alone?

 

I only want to make you feel safe

But I can’t if you always tell me to give you space

Please, baby, please, we are drifting apart

Baby, please, you are breaking my heart

‘Cause I care

Care for you

 

Why’s it wrong for me to care?

Why do you not want me there?

Why must you be on your own?

Why must you always be alone?

 

Why, when you cry, won’t you let me be near?

Why don’t you let me brush away all of your tears?

Please let me be the by your side when you need

Let me be there for you every time that you bleed

‘Cause I care, yes I care

Care for you

 

Why’s it wrong for me to care?

Why do you not want me there?

Why must you be on your own?

Why must you always be alone?

 

All I want is to be there

To be always there for you

All I want is to show I care

I will always care for you

Perfect

All your cuts and all your scars

Help define just who you are

Don’t erase them, accept and embrace them

‘Cause you’re a god damn work of art

 

Unequaled and unrivaled

Your beauty has no parallel

On the outside, and in your heart

You are a god damn work of art Continue reading

Do You See

Too much time spent living in the shadows

Never feeling the sun on your skin

Too long letting the darkness surround you

Never letting daylight in

.

Do you see that the sun is worth feeling now

Do you see

Oh do you see

Do you see that light was only ever healing

Do you see

Oh do you see Continue reading
