Mother lyrics - Anberlin

(originally by Danzig)

Mother
Tell your children not to walk my way
Tell your children not to hear my words
What they mean
What they say
Mother

Mother
Can you keep them in the dark for life
Can you hide them from the waiting world
Mother

Father
Gonna take your daughter out tonight
Gonna show her my world
Father

Not about to see your light
But if you wanna find hell with me
I can show you what it's like
Till you're bleeding

Not about to see your light
And if you wanna find hell with me
I can show you what it's like

Mother
Tell your children not to hold my hand
Tell your children not to understand
Mother

Father
Do you wanna bang heads with me
Do you wanna feel everything
Father

Not about to see your light
But if you wanna find hell with me
I can show you what it's like
Till you're bleeding

Not about to see your light
But if you wanna find hell with me
I can show you what it's like

Not about to see your light
But if you wanna find hell with me
I can show you what it's like
Till you're bleeding

Not about to see your light
But if you wanna find hell with me
I can show you what it's like

The Haunting lyrics - Anberlin

Up on this hill, in this uncanny house
The wind makes this place creak, the lights they are flickering.
The moon she is lurking, the clock it stopped working
At a quarter past three.
There's something dancing here in the shadows
And I wish it were us.

You haunt me baby, you haunt me here tonight.
You haunt me baby, you haunt me here tonight.
Tonight.
Tonight.

Can't get your memory, off of my mind.
Just want your heartbeat, on top of my mine.
There's something dancing, here in the shadows
And I wish it were us.

You haunt me baby, you haunt me here tonight.
You haunt me baby, you haunt me here tonight.
Tonight.
Tonight.

Up on this hill, in this uncanny house.
Your spirit I can't see, but I still believe
I can feel your breath on me.

You haunt me baby, you haunt me here tonight.
You haunt me baby, you haunt me here tonight.
Tonight.
Tonight.

Up on this hill, in this uncanny house.

Like A Rolling Stone lyrics - Anberlin

(originally by Bob Dylan)

Once upon a time you dressed so fine
You threw the bums a dime in your prime, didn't you?
People'd call, say, "Beware doll, you're bound to fall"
You thought they were all kiddin' you
You used to laugh about
Everybody that was hangin' out
Now you don't talk so loud
Now you don't seem so proud
About having to be scrounging for your next meal.

How does it feel
How does it feel
To be without a home
Like a complete unknown
Like a rolling stone

You've gone to the finest school all right, Miss Lonely
But you know you only used to get juiced in it
And nobody has ever taught you how to live on the street
And now you find out you're gonna have to get used to it
You said you'd never compromise
With the mystery tramp, but know you realize
He's not selling any alibis
As you stare into the vacuum of his eyes
And say do you want to make a deal?

How does it feel
How does it feel
To be on your own
With no direction home
Like a complete unknown
Like a rolling stone

Princess on the steeple and all the pretty people
They're drinkin', thinkin' that they got it made
Exchanging all precious gifts
But you'd better take your diamond ring, you'd better pawn it babe
You used to be so amused
At Napoleon in rags and the language that he used
Go to him now, he calls you, you can't refuse
When you got nothing, you got nothing to lose
You're invisible now, you got no secrets to conceal.

How does it feel
How does it feel
To be on your own
With no direction home
Like a complete unknown
Like a rolling stone

Enjoy The Silence lyrics - Anberlin

(originally by Depeche Mode)

Words like violence
Break the silence
Come crashing in
Into my little world
Painful to me
Pierce right through me
Can't you understand
Oh my little girl

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

Vows are spoken
To be broken
Feelings are intense
Words are trivial
Pleasures remain
So does the pain
Words are meaningless
And forgettable

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

Downtown Song lyrics - Anberlin

[Verse 1]
Hey up town girl
Can you hear this down town song?
Wrote a couple of words to tell you
Right here is where you belong

I bet you walk the streets
Wondering who you're thinking of
Hope you're looking for someone to hold
And not at all in love

[Pre-chorus]
And I wonder if you can relate
To nights upon my pillow case
Eyes wide open middle of the night
You're the last thing on my mind

[Chorus]
Only the lonely know
Only the lonely know
Only the lonely know
What nights like these do to me, yeah

[Verse 2]
I keep asking myself
If our hands were meant to be
I know this town is busy,
But I live on Public Street

We can get out of here
If only for just tonight
Ride like some Rollin stone
That's forced to waste your life

[Pre-chorus]
And I wonder if you can relate
To nights upon my pillow case
Eyes wide open middle of the night
You're the last thing on my mind

[Chorus]
Only the lonely know
Only the lonely know
Only the lonely know
What nights like these do to me

[Verse 3]
When I'm under (when I'm under)
Is it me you're thinking of?
With this light (get on your knees)
I pray you're not at all in love

With someone else (with someone new)
With something other than me and you
Just wanna be where you are (Just where you are)
If ever you're lonely I won't be far

[Bridge]
Only the lonely know
Only the lonely know

Only the lonely know
Only the lonely know
Only the lonely know
What nights like these do to me, yeah

Only the lonely know
Only the lonely know
Only the lonely know
What nights like these do to me

Creep lyrics - Anberlin

(originally by Radiohead)

Were you here before?
I couldn't look you in the eye
You're just like an angel
Your skin makes me cry

You float like a feather
In a beautiful world
You're so very special
I wish I was special

But I'm a creep
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doin' here?
I don't belong here

I don't care if it hurts
I wanna have control
I want a perfect body
I want a perfect soul

I want you to notice
When I'm not around
You're so very special
I wish I was special

But I'm a creep
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doin' here?
I don't belong here, ohhhh, ohhhh

She's gotta run
She's gotta run, run, run...
Run

Whatever makes you happy
Whatever you want
You're so very special
I wish I was special

But I'm a creep
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doin' here?
I don't belong here

I don't belong here

Baby Please Come Home lyrics - Anberlin

(Christmas)
The snow's coming down
(Christmas)
I'm watching it fall
(Christmas)
Watching the people around
(Christmas)
Baby, please come home
(Christmas)
The church bells in town
(Christmas)
They're ringing a song
(Christmas)
Oh the happiest sound
(Christmas)
Baby, please come home

They're singing Deck the Halls
But it's not like Christmas at all
I remember when you were here
And all the fun we had last year

(Christmas)
Pretty lights on the tree
(Christmas)
And I'm watching them shine
(Christmas)
You should be here with me
(Christmas)
Baby, please come home

They're singing deck the halls
But it's not like Christmas at all
I remember when you were here
And all the fun we had last year

(Christmas)
If there was a way,
(Christmas)
I'd hold back these tears
(Christmas)
But it's Christmas day
(Christmas)
Baby, please come home

Driving (Autobahn) lyrics - Anberlin

And we're driving just as fast as we can
and we're racing to outrun the wind
It's just me and you and you and me so wild eyed
so young, bright eyed and free
And we're trying to get out of here
and a small town romance draws ever near
And I swear we're in a movie
the highlight comes when you kiss me

The stereo sings our song
and we don't hesitate to sing along

Drive to dream to live, we could see the world tonight
Here to hope tomorrow we could see the world

And we're miles from the middle of nowhere
and neither of us seems to care
And that's why I love you so, shut your mouth girl
no one has to know
And time seems to drip like Dali
and neither of us has a place to be
So for once and forever tell me all of your dreams

Everywhere In Between lyrics - Anberlin

I've seen this here I've stood here before.
You know I have boy.
You know I've been right here.
I've felt the fire from this war.
You know I have so.
So let me see it again.

And you are my fading photograph. And ripped memory.
And your burning memoirs rest here. You know they wrestle with me.
You are the noise in here I cannot sleep without.
Constant reminders everywhere in between
You are the way out of here. The grace that I have found
Constant reminders everywhere in between

I've lived out all my crazy Vegas dreams.
I've seen it all boy.
I've seen it all right here.
And now regret the glamour that I have made.
Please forgive me.
Oh God forgive me.

And you are my fading photograph. And ripped memory.
And your burning memoirs rest here. You know they wrestle with me.
You are the noise in here I cannot sleep without.
Constant reminders everywhere in between
You are the way out of here. The grace that I have found
Constant reminders everywhere in between

I walked away from
And now I wish a poem

I've come to tell you
I'm coming home tonight
I'm on my way back home
And your arms tell me it's been too long
I'm on my way back home
And your lips tell me it's been too long

You are the noise in here I cannot sleep without.
Constant reminders everywhere in between
You are the noise in here I cannot sleep without.
Constant reminders everywhere in between
You are the way out of here the grace that I have found.
Constant reminders everywhere in between

Cadence lyrics - Anberlin

Write down, to remind yourself
on how it can be, how it can be
Heartstrings, you're tugging at
my heartstrings, my heartstrings
Helpless, I have become so helpless
to your touch, oh touch me somehow
Restless, you leave me restless
breathless wait for me

The closer I come to you
the closer I am to finding God
You're a miracle to me
The closer I come to you
the closer I am to finding God
You're a miracle to me

Burning, like Joan of Arc
to see you, just to feel you
Cadence, well I'd dance with the dead
'cause I believe, yes I believe, yes I believe
Stifle, Paul said that you
stifle him again and again and again

The closer I come to you
the closer I am to finding God
You're a miracle to me
The closer I come to you
the closer I am to finding God
You're a miracle to me

And if these are my parting words
Grant me this, my last request
Hold me here, until I sleep
If I burn, then I burn for you

The closer I come to you
the closer I am to finding God

The closer I come to you
the closer I am to finding God

The closer I come to you
the closer I am to finding God
You're a miracle to me
The closer I come to you
the closer I am to finding God
You're a miracle to me

City Electric lyrics - Anberlin

This life's electric
You can feel the pulse out on the street
The boys keep moving
Girls they always seem to follow the beat
This town it breathes in
A hunger deeper down it's underground
These changes, they change
Familiar faces at one time look strange

Call me crazy cause I still hold on
Call me foolish I'm a believer
We were never meant to walk alone
I don't think I'm the last of the dreamers

City's electric tonight
Burning under bright lights
The city's so active, alive
Can you feel it?
You know we're living out loud
Like we still need it
City electric
The city's electric tonight

The search is still on
Voices calling out from wilderness
Some say to let go
Some things are out of your control
I tried but I just can't stop
Tried but I can't stop
Til we progress

Call me crazy but there's still a chance
Call me foolish, an overachiever
We can be exactly who we want
I don't think I'm the last of the dreamers

Live like you feel it
Live like you need it
Live like you feel this
Live like you love
Live the life you love
The city's electric tonight

Dead American lyrics - Anberlin

Shout to the system cause you're out of control
Saved your body, but you're losing your soul
You really feel this! Do you really feel this?

We've got so much, but so little to show
Pour it down, but we follow the goal
We really need this! Do we really need this?

I wanted all the lie we're sold we're told our soul

We got it right, We got it right now
We got it right, We got it right now
We got it right, We got it all

Don't care about those who you try to impress
Hide the demons that are under the dress
You really got them! You think you really got them.

I told you show the world who you are
who you really are

We got it right, We got it right now
We got it right, We got it right now
We got it right, We got it right now
We got it right, We got it wrong

We want it all, We want it all now
We'll take it off, We'll take it off now
We want it right, We want it right now
We'll take it off, Well take it off now

I want half of the dead american dreams
Dead american dreams
I just want to be free from tears that hide
the dead american dream

We got it right, We got it right now
We got it right, We got it right now
We got it right, We got it right now
We got it right, We got it wrong

We want it all, We want it all now
We'll take it off, We'll take it off now
We want it right, We want it right now
We'll take it off, We want it all

Embrace The Dead lyrics - Anberlin

I'm coming through your district
I see the red light on
I feel the warmth of the street
And I feel the drugs infecting me

Don't come screaming
Cold words, demands
Helpless you cry
Each night you pray that tomorrow you won't die
You're living, barely breathing

Embrace the dead
Raise your hands
To the gods in the sky
That let you breathe tonight

Coming through your district
I see the red lipstick on
You sell yourself so cheap
Sleep with the night to carry on

Don't come screaming
Cold words, demands
Helpless you cry
Each night you pray that tomorrow you won't die
You're living, barely breathing

Embrace the dead
Raise your hands
To the god in the sky
That let you breathe tonight

Breathe tonight
Breathe tonight
Breathe tonight

You're living, barely breathing
You're living, barely breathing
You're living, barely breathing
You're living, barely breathing

You're living
You're living
You're living

Embrace the dead
Raise your hands
To Christ the Lord
That let's you breathe tonight
