Broken Connections

Hold on to the night
Never let you go
Mouths move, words spoken
Lies told, promises broken
The past is gone
Lives gone with it
No tears to shed
Nothing changes
The fate we decide
Keep the connection
Stay alive
With words spoken
Joined forever
Yet not connected
It’s more than nothing
I’ll take what I can get
I messed up
I still want you
I love you

Bring Life

Bring life,
Bring life to the tired souls
Occupy the minds of the youth
Train them to obey
Synchronize the changing  of the tide
Freeze the sun’s rays
Hide behind the shadows of the feeble
Stand up to the Great Lion
Bring life,
Now take it all away
