Sabotage Album Lyrics

To War

Soon I will meet my greatest enemy, it knows me well

Here it comes to steal all of my hopes and dreams and cast a spell

We move to war

 

Push us back in the dark until they say we can be free again

Now the powers that be have formed a line

We’re marching out to meet them (We’re off to war)

Can love still save the souls of men?

 

Here comes the storm too late to turn away, it knows me well

This dark traitor knows much more than just my name, our kingdom fell

We move to war

 

Push us back in the dark until they say we can be free again

Now the powers that be have formed a line

We’re marching out to meet them (We’re off to war)

Can love still save the souls of men?

 

Lightning breaks the shroud, death can’t hold me

Hear me scream out loud, you won’t control me

We march to war…

 

Push us back in the dark until they say we can be free again

Now the powers that be have formed a line

We’re marching out to meet them (We’re off to war)

Can love still save the souls of men?

 

 

Scarecrow

Fear of the world inside you and all the things that could be

Your mind is the devil’s playground, let him roam so free

Afraid you’ll get too close now and he might make his move

Tell yourself go back now, his eye’s fixed on you

It’s just a mask, hollow as glass

No hold on you, it’s inside you

And what you fear’s only a mirror

Staring at you, creeping up on you

 

You’ve been running from a scarecrow in your mind

Blind to what’s been hunting you

Scarecrow in disguise

It’s distracting you, tear it down

Tear it down…

 

Always seems so frightening, never know what might be

You never know who’s watching, lose your sanity

Loving what can’t save you, and your heart has fooled you

Dancing to the prelude, the demise of you

It’s just a mask, hollow as glass

No hold on you, it’s inside you

And what you fear’s only a mirror

Staring at you, creeping up on you

 

You’ve been running from a scarecrow in your mind

Blind to what’s been hunting you

Scarecrow in disguise

It’s distracting you, tear it down

Tear it down…

 

Serpents whisper solace as the venom paralyzes

The scarecrow froze my vision as the slayer remained hidden

Wake and arise, take back your life and wipe the sleep from your eyes

 

You’ve been running from a scarecrow in your mind

Blind to what’s been hunting you

Scarecrow in disguise

It’s distracting you, tear it down

Tear it down…

 

 

Alive

I’m down here in this cavern, a dark and lonely place

I’m shouting here on bended knee with the echoes screaming in my face

Can you hear me? Lord, can you hear me? Hello?

It’s so cold in here I can see my fear

Abducted by my enemy anger, a victim of my own war, I don’t love you anymore

In the darkness we all look the same

I’m so alone but hear someone calling my name

 

I was dying till I heard your name

Lying in a pool of my shame

Poisoned through my veins

You broke through my night, blinded me with your light

My lungs just want to scream it

For the first time, I’m alive

 

I’m hiding from this fear that dances, I’ve ruined all my second chances

Oh there’s so much more to me

And a hero will come rescue me, I can hear the bell toll for me

A prisoner enduring the lashes, but I hold the key, as if ashes

Oh I did this on my own

So I’ll forgive and I’ll be reborn

And I’ll live for, I want to live for something more

 

I was dying till I heard your name

Lying in a pool of my shame

Poisoned through my veins

You broke through my night, blinded me with your light

My lungs just want to scream it

For the first time, I’m alive

 

You broke through my night

Scales fell from my eyes

I’m not who I was, no longer calloused

We are the change, we are the light

Love will save us all, don’t give up the fight

 

I was dying till I heard your name

Lying in a pool of my shame

Poisoned through my veins

You broke through my night, blinded me with your light

My lungs just want to scream it

For the first time, I’m alive

 

Sabotage

Strung up on these chains I’ve wasted time and soul away

I won’t obey you, overtake you, and make my escape

But I feel your eyes on me, you won’t take over me

Freeing my weakening eyes, this beautiful mirage

Watch as your walls start to fall, this is a sabotage

What are you living for?

What are you fighting for?

What are you dying for?

 

How long must we dream? And this life is not what it seems…

It only takes one life to change this world

Who will save us?

 

Breaking from delusions and the lies that swallowed you

Piercing flesh and darkness, now you finally see the truth

But I feel your eyes on me, you won’t take over me

Freeing my weakening eyes, this beautiful mirage

Watch as your walls start to fall, this is a sabotage

What are you living for?

What are you fighting for?

What are you dying for?

 

How long must we dream? And this life is not what it seems…

How long must we dream? And this life is not what it seems…

It only takes one life to change this world

Who will save us?

 

I severed your strings, O, you’ll bow you puppet master

No longer will we be bound by the enemy

No longer will I let venom inside of me

I won’t live another day in your mirage

The tide has turned, this is a sabotage

 

 

Beautiful Scars (In Memory Of Braxton Kooser)

I thought we had more time, we were never afraid

We were so blind, before these sorrows came

I would give anything to say one last time how much you meant to me

I’d say I’d do it again lying on these stones

But it doesn’t hurt any less in my bones

 

Scars for you, so beautiful, I’ve set aside a part of my heart

I’ll see you soon again, I’ll dream of you till then

Where shadows can’t find us anymore

 

Paradise seems so close, but I have so far to go

A light to all those, now with tears, they know

Just a silhouette to remember you, and your last words to me

I know you’re truly alive in the souls you awoke

A rose blooming in winter’s cloak

 

Scars for you, so beautiful, I’ve set aside a part of my heart

I’ll see you soon again, I’ll dream of you till then

Where shadows can’t find us anymore

 

O, can you wake me from this dream of frailty, sorrow can be so cruel

Grief can’t enslave me, it’s not gonna break me, my God will sustain me

The same God that blessed me with you

 

Scars for you, so beautiful, we’re stronger now because of you

On streets of gold you’ll run, our tears rest in the Son

Where shadows can’t find us anymore
