Acoustic II - EP

by Aviators

It feels like greyscale reality In this world we've built on our own It's unclear to me What we are still trying to be If I could bring back the peace we had Would the wars come with it too? The black lines are holding me The black lines are holding me So let's stop living in black and white One streak of color could change a life We have the shades of blue in ltears And hues of green for passing years White lies put hatred in our heads So we will show them love instead We'll paint the whole world red We'll paint the whole world red I can feel time in my veins Counting down my days I won't paint them grey with pain Let's paint our hearts red again If we can settle the scores between The good and evil sides We'll take a step One more deep breath I can move past the fear of death When nothing can hold me anymore We can build a world of a billion shades We can make a difference and chance our place In the course of time in the cycle of our lives We can paint the world with eyes open wide
A voice calls A cry in the dark Telling me to crawl into the light But I won't The show has just begun I'm giving one last encore tonight Five nights left to find you One last thing to tend to You'll fear what I can do But you'll never run Ghosts warn of my actions But I'm the main attraction You'll bring my satisfaction Our little horror story's just begun I believe After this final stand The end will come, but not until you're gone I'm haunted A killer in cage Using my undoing as my pawn These metal gears and parts Contain my purple heart They had their sweet revenge And brought me to an end Now I'm the monster here I'll make you disappear One last show to put on After tonight you're gone
I've seen enough here, to feel I don't belong My imagination, again has lead me on This stubborn aching, has a mind of its own I've left, but I won't tell you where I've gone I've never known that, the world could be so mean I'll never go back, to who I used to be A steady runway, is all that I would need To reason with myself behind the scenes (Is it me) Is it me, or can you see through my walls As if they'd never shown? (Could it be) Could it be, all because of my lies I've broken my own bones (No more throwing stones) I could have sworn I, I had a life before My short attention, had wanted something more I can't erase it, I know I won't forget But at least I learned my lesson in the end Oh, winter breezes, were never gone so fast It's straight ahead now, and no more looking back Like separation, letting go of the past And trying to rebuild my house of glass
Where can I bury all of my suffering Casualties of poison and pride Where is the line between losing everything And giving it all to say that you've tried When I dared to dream of something greater I flew away into the sky Nothing's going to fill the space between you and I And I felt the world grow so much colder As we drifted away over time Living in the past in our apocalypse state of mind Where can I find some kind of a remedy A cure for my pain, a rest for my eyes Where can I pray, when nothing means anything In some kind of cage no God could devise Ashes to ashes Dust to dust Honor to glory And iron to rust Hate to bloodshed From rise to fall If I never have to die Am I alive at all? Now can you hear the sounds of a melody Playing a tune, to soften our hearts We can move on past all of the memories The lapses in faith, that time will impart Take me to places beyond our biosphere Into the unknown, where we could reside Find me in winter when all the paths are clear In cities of ash, we're healing in time
When the darkness closed in all around It didn't bring us down It only made stronger for those days When they turned our dreams to distant thoughts The embers still burned hot And now the flames will blaze So let them burn They set the fire Now we can see How they conspire But they've been shattered Like broken glass And now we're building better worlds On the ashes of the past When oppression came here from all sides We didn't take their lies We saw a revolution rising When they asked us why we're not the same We wouldn't play their game We are the voices crying But no the battle isn't won The war has only just begun And we'll keep fighting, keep building, a better place for us And if they strike us down tonight We'll sear the darkness with the light It's revolution time, and you're on our side So let them burn (So we'll let them) They set the fire (burn tonight) Now we can see (Watch the flames light) How they conspire (Up the sky) But they've been shattered (Shattered like a) Like broken glass (Broken glass) And now we're building better worlds On the ashes of the past
One step at a time I'm going outta my mind I'm being hunted by something primal They're just simple machines Yet tainted souls they seem For five nights I'll fear for my survival Are they mechanical They hunt like animals Freezing for seconds while see their corpses I'm getting panicked now I'm locking this place down I'm feeling watched by unnatural forces Looks like I'd better run for my life I'll never be in one piece to see night five I've got eleven on my tail, with no time to think Of a way to survive mechanical instinct Just an hour more I'm closer than before To making it out of this ghastly madhouse I'm feeling desperate I'm starting to regret Taking my chances with no way out Who's walking down the hall? I can't keep track of them all A music box plays my dying song This is my one escape The mask still on my face But they have known I've been here all along Here, all alone in the darkness Why, can't I escape there soulless Eyes It's a lost cause now, they've got my scent, and I can't get out. Now, i'm afraid to look because They, are just beasts to hunt me down With no way fight back, the night is already over
I have seen the better days But now they're far away Lost beneath the sand I have lost the ones I knew And barely made it through This broken, barren land Breathing I embrace the feeling Of despair that keeps me Standing on my own I'm no hero Starting back at zero It's an unfair world so To the wolves I'm thrown To the wolves I'm thrown I, the messenger of loss Have traveled at a cost To save their legacies I, the stranger in the wind A man of many sins Alone with memories Will we meet again Somewhere at the end Somewhere far beyond this place It's a hopeless cause But I'll fight the odds For a chance to see your face
I hurt myself today To see if I still feel I focus on the pain The only thing that's real The needle tears a hole The old familiar sting Try to kill it all away But I remember everything What have I become My sweetest friend Everyone I know Goes away in the end And you could have it all My empire of dirt I will let you down I will make you hurt I wear this crown of shit Upon my liars chair Full of broken thoughts I cannot repair Beneath the stains of time The feelings disappear You are someone else I am still right here What have I become My sweetest friend Everyone I know Goes away in the end And you could have it all My empire of dirt I will let you down I will make you hurt If I could start again A million miles away I will keep myself I would find a way
It's been so long, I've been out of my body with you I feel alone, feel at home, feel like nothing is true You take me to a place where my senses gave-way, Turn it round, shuttin' down, what the people say Climbing up, coming down, gonna give you some, Take my hand and let it come, let it come, let it Take it back when she knows that your doing it right Cause everybody else knows what their taking tonight But I just wanna play it right, We're gonna get there tonight It's been so far I've been walking the line of my time Wake me up to the stars we are coming home I only had a chase but were out of time We have sold in the cold, physical desires Set me free, set me out on the run, lift me up to the sun, to the sun, to the When your burning down, when your burning down, It's the way that you think that I know It's too late But I just want to play it right We, were gonna get there tonight I just want to take you down We're gonna bring you round But I just want to play it right We, were gonna get there tonight


Acoustic II is a sequel to the original EP that took some of my older songs and re-imagined them in an intimate, softer atmosphere. From the darkness of Mechanical Instinct to the weary solitude of "Wolves", the songs of this EP are sure to strike a chord in even the coldest of all hearts.
