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 noone
i am no one

Skin

these wals are closing in
on everyhting 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 forgivness
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

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 allright
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 theyre hands
its always on your mind
its in your eyes
dont be afraid of something you hate
respect whats on theyr mind

Mirrors

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 intrest of
you fighting with your life
for a useless peice 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 somwhere 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
somewhre 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 gringin 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 gringin 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
