Accept

marlamariaband

running back and fourth im at a loss

on how many times ive stumbled back from

an empty home thats like that of my

an empty home thats like that of my life

tear me from sleep cause in my dreams

the only time or place that ive found peace

ive spent the past few years

searching for my purpose

look forward in life and cut me loose

look forward in life

keep me grounded in it

keep me focused on it

and show me every breath is a choice ill have to live with

ive learned to accept that i cant keep my head above this

and ive learned to accept that who i am is nothing

i am no one

you are no one

i am no one

fill my lungs up and pull me down

ive given up on everyone

stand me up but hold me down

and ive learned to accept that i cant keep my head above this

ive learned to accept who i am is nothing

i am no one

you are no one

i am no one

Skin

marlamariaband

these walls are closing in

on everything ive learned to live with

these walls are closing in

theyre closing in

your ignorance fuels my hate

but i blame you for thinking that its okay

to treat them all like theyre the same

one in the same

its none of your business how i choose to live

its none of your business what i put on my skin

everyday i grow sick of this routine

its none of your business

i dont need your forgiveness

to be at peace with myself

cause i found solace in knowing youre not there

religious war that purposed for murder

and spread of fear

how fucking holy

its none of your business how i choose to live

its none of your business what i put on my skin

everyday i grow sick of this routine

its none of your business

silence is violence

its not oppression

when they gain the rights youve had

youve always had

its none of your business how i choose to live

its none of your business what i put on my skin

everyday i grow sick of this routine

its none of your business

silence is violence

Tallahassee

wake up little girl

when you cant sleep at night

cause you know i cant sleep at night

as theres an omnipresent watching eye

starring back at you

theyll scale it back just to pull you in

and tie a rope to your dirty grin

everythings alright

theres blood and its on your hand

ive been here been waiting for year

been killing time 

just hoping for a better life

stand up for whats right

stand up for your life

stand up for us

its always on your mind

its in your eyes

dont be afraid of something you hate

theres blood and its on your hand

wake up and see the debt

wake up and feel regret

all that you know 

all that you own

all your life is in their hands

its always on your mind

its in your eyes

dont be afraid of something you hate

respect whats on their mind

Mirrors

marlamariaband

forty years and its still our fault

well they came they saw

they crushed it all

were bound to see itll never fucking change

they came they saw they crushed it all

forty years and its still our fault

were bound to see

itll never fucking change

would you die or would you settle on

a man with the interest of

you fighting with your life

for a useless piece of cloth

to draw a line in the sand

divide us in witch we stand

to show us who they really are

forty years and its still our fault

well they came they saw

they crushed it all

were bound to see itll never fucking change

they came they saw they crushed it all

forty years and its still our fault

were bound to see

itll never fucking change

we are called a few and chosen 

they all heard that its free and open

its unsinkable

unthinkable that our way of life could fail

give them water they said it would

give them water to trickle down

look at your look at your self

forty years and its still our fault

well they came they saw

they crushed it all

were bound to see itll never fucking change

Supine

marlamariaband

two hundred feet between this window and the pavement

and not a fucking person sees it 

that my life has all but vanished

i wish wasnt lying when i say i havent thought of it

finally putting my family at ease

everyday is a battle somewhere in my mind

about whats wrong

about whats right

im told ive gotta to make it on my own

somewhere in my mind is a prayer for a better ending

but i cant see that happening

drag my coffin through the mud

kick it six feet down and forget about me

this is what you wanted

and in the end its what you got

all thats left is a patch of dirt and a wooden cross

somewhere in my mind is prayer to him

and for this im living in my own hell

i grind my teeth just hearing your name

somewhere in my mind is prayer to him

for this im living in my own hell

i lay

supine eyes to the sky

detached from my reality

alive

but dead inside

Common Sense

marlamariaband

a broken system from the start

do you think your vote counts

and every fucking day im weighing the good with the bad

i cant sleep

i cant think 

i cant stand any of these

i dont know if i can face it

what a fucking false sense of importance

whats your purpose

while choking on every lost promise

is your voice heard

i dont know how you can sell your soul for

the trust of the people

how you can lie your teeth grinin easy

how can sell sell your soul for

the trust of the people

ive seen it this evil

the trust of the people

ive seen it this evil

i dont want to fit the mold

i dont want to know how its been sold

back and fourth between two 

childish heads of state

what makes it right

for you to hold the end

in your hands

your false sense of leadership is fading

time to face it

your totalitarian regime is failing 

time to change it

i dont know how you can sell your soul for

the trust of the people

how you can lie your teeth grinin easy

how can sell sell your soul for

the trust of the people

ive seen it this evil

the trust of the people

ive seen it this evil

lack of progress 

and a lack of common sense
