SHADOW BOXER

 

VERSE 

 

I AM MADE FROM THE TIRELESS, DISREGARDED REJECTIONS, AND CURLED UP IN ME I GRIEVE, THEN I BURN FURIOUSLY, EACH TIME I LAY UNCONSCIOUSLY, AND THE STARS CIRCLE MY VISION, I EMERGE A HEAVY-WEIGHTED, DEFENDING CHAMPION, DANCING AROUND MY FEELINGS, I WAS BORN RELENTLESSLY TRIED..

 

CHORUS

 

I WILL SOAR AND GLITTER THE SKY SHOW MY HEARTBREAK DON’T BELIEVE IN THE LIES, THERE’S A PLACE WHERE MY FORTUNE RESIDES, IN A HURRICANE THAT BREATHES IN ME, ONE DAY THE WORLD WILL FINALLY WATCH THE ROUNDS I GO THROUGH TO BELIEVE, AND SEE THE PREJUDICE THAT CLOUDS..

 

THIS SHADOW BOXER.

 

VERSE 

 

INSIDE I LIVE THE PROPHECY THAT BETRAYS AND ENDLESSLY TESTS ME, AND UNDERNEATH MY CLOAK THAT DRAPES, IS THE JUDGEMENT THAT THEY PORTRAY, FOLLOWS ME EVERY NIGHT IN A DREAM, AND HAUNTS ME UNTIL IT BURIES MY HEART

 

CHORUS

 

M8

 

NOBODY CAN STOP ME! 'CAUSE I AM ALMIGHTY! STILL STAND UNDISPUTED! THE DEADLIEST WEAPON! TO FEAR, THE ONE AND ONLY, UNDEFEATED, THIS FIGHTER THAT LIVES.

 

CHORUS

SILENT WITNESS 

 

VERSE 

 

I HAVE BEEN AN OUTCAST, HUGGING ON THE DEADEST MEMORY, AND PATIENCE HAS CALLED TIME, THERE’S NO PITY LEFT HERE FOR ME, SEE MY HEART ONCE CAROUSELED ON A RIDE OF ENDLESS LOVE, CRAZILY SPINNING, PROMISES OF FOREVER I WILL LOVE, AND NOW I LAY HERE RESTING FROM MY OWN DESTRUCTION, I CAN’T HURT MYSELF ANYMORE I’M DISFUNCTIONED, I AM A PICTURE OF DESOLATE, BUT THIS ISN’T LIVING ANYMORE!

 

CHORUS

 

I’M THE JOURNEY, INTO THE MIND OF A SERIAL JOKE, AND I’M WATCHING HELPLESS MY HANDS DEFY MY WILLING TO LET THIS GO!

 

I AM A.. SILENT WITNESS TO ALL THE MADNESS IN ME

 

VERSE

 

FLASHBACKS OF A FOOL, SHOWING SIGNS OF INSANITY, WATCHING MY FISTS SQUEEZE A PAST WITH NO LOVE FOR ME, BELIEVED THE SPEECH OF A CON MAN WHEN IGNORANCE BEWITCHED MY LIFE, I FELT A PAIN OF THE ACUTEST KIND KILL ME, THERE’S NO MERCY ON MY SOUL, NO MORE DELIVERIES OF KINDNESS FROM LISTENERS WITH OFFERINGS OF CONDOLENCES, WELL I WON’T FEAR, KNOCKING MY HEART OUT TO SEE

 

CHORUS

 

FORGIVE ME FATHER, FOR THE SINS I HAVE COMMITTED… AND NOW I CONFESS.

 

CHORUS
