Everybody needs a destination Everybody has a private hell Everybody's got a retribution Everybody has a cross to bear This is my wake-up call I have my back to the wall There's no alternative It's me against the world I’m not going down I’m not going down, down Got the crown of the clown If I hit the ground I won't let myself drown Got the crown of the clown Everyone is seeking recognition Everyone is trying to survive Everyone is facing isolation But heavy is the head that wears the crown And life goes on they say War is over if you want it But in the end we all live to die another day I’m not going down I’m not going down, down Got the crown of the clown If I hit the ground I won't let myself drown Because I got the crown of the clown Open my eyes and free my mind From the chains I myself tied Heads I live Tails I die Life I give it one more try Fall seven times and stand up eight I still haven't sealed my fate I'll do my best I am not perfect 'Cause I'm only human

What a life it is to fight against the clock All those years living under a rock Disconnected and going through the motions I admit I've been sleepwalking all the while Feeling like I was buried alive I just needed an internal commotion And it was no morbid attraction I'm not obsessed with the deceased I had to overcome the fear of death so I begin to live I put the fun in funeral And the fun put the funeral in me I put the fun in funeral Before I put the nail in the coffin Dig it up! Still not settled on making the choice to fry Or to be worm food deep under the ground I'm not ready to take this grand decision I'm sick and tired of watching every minute fly Vegetating and paralyzed I needed something to provoke a reaction It was a required revelation 'Cause tomorrow is not promised And I can't sacrifice my time in vain by waiting in the wings I put the fun in funeral And the fun put the funeral in me I put the fun in funeral Before I put the nail in the coffin It took a while to realize we're all gonna die someday While we still can in the meantime Raise our glass and celebrate It's a wonderful life Don't waste precious time We all only live once And later won't wait I don't wanna have regrets

I am an alien With a price on my head The local aberration I'm an anomaly In the normality A victim of perception But I love what I see And I won't listen when they say I'm heading to the wrong direction And I'm doing things my way And I don't need their absolution And when I'm feeling low I try to remind myself I'd better be alone than being with someone else Now I am strong enough and you can't break me Proud enough and you can't change me Far enough and I won't turn back no more They dismiss the unknown But we're all flesh and bones It's just misguided opinion But I used to see me through their eyes Taking my power away by sitting still and cry I was not what I aimed to be But I won't listen when they say I'm heading to the wrong direction And I'm doing things my way And I don't need their absolution And when I'm feeling low I gotta remind myself I'd better be my own than being like someone else Now I am strong enough and you can't break me Proud enough and you can't change me Far enough and I won't turn back no more Now I am wise enough and you can judge me Dry enough and you can hate me All in all I'm just the ghoul next door And I love what I see I am my own self creation But you made me what I am I'm making my own decisions I don't have to make amends I'd rather live in seclusion And to live up to my name I'm not in need of salvation

I forgive myself today And all the things that I've done wrong I let them flow I have no regrets today The memories that drag me down I let them go All I ever wanted was to be happy with myself And all the broken pieces I lay them all down to rest Loving myself is a daily trial when I see my reflection in the mirror I accept my past today And all the scars that made me strong I let them show I'm starting over today And all the flaws that make me proud I let them glow All I ever wanted was to be happy with myself And all the broken pieces I lay them all down to rest Loving myself is a daily trial when I see my reflection in the mirror Loving myself is my only salvation from a premature burial I'm wide awake and I can't believe my eyes It wasn't planned it just came to me as a surprise When all these years I was feeling dead inside It was all up to me to think and realize I wanna be alive

Army Of Me 03:33
Beaten down, mocked and ignored Humiliated to the core I will never take this anymore Feeling like I don't belong I will show them they're all wrong I hold my breath and put my helmet on Better beware Eyes everywhere As I walk I keep my head high I feel like I'm conquering the world I'm ready to fight Ready to kill Once I was invisible Now I feel invincble I just have to remember who I am And I am Now I'll move on with my life I have other fish to fry But I won't ever take no harm from them Not again Better beware Eyes everywhere As I walk I keep my head high I feel like I'm conquering the world I'm ready to fight Ready to kill It's my war and it's do or die I'll prove the world I'm a champion Together as one An army of me Better beware Dead bodies everywhere Better beware But why should, why should I care

Doom Service 02:40
The sun is shining in my eye view It makes me sad and blue Looks like a pattern for the next day or two It's no problem Then comes unwanted introspection Causing some confusion Making me lose sight of all kinds of reason It's unwelcome Knock knock Don't answer the door The doom service's coming back for more Knock knock Don't answer the door I will not take this anymore I've been to hell before A case of history repeating The mind's a fragile thing But I survived so far then again I will It's my mantra I faced my thoughts alone for so long I'll tame them like lions There is no way I let them cause more friction No more drama Knock knock Don't answer the door The doom service's coming back for more Knock knocK Don't answer the door I will not take this anymore And when the walls start to crumble I gotta foresee the trouble I won't let them pop my bubble

Heavy heart and sore throat from the sorrow made me understand It's impossible to make a rainbow without a little rain Happiness is not a destination, it's a way of thinking It's all up to me to find the wisdom to battle all my fears When there is a will, there is a way When there is no pain, there is no gain Life is a game that I wanna play I'm glad I've known the suffering Now I can fight the chaos of the mind And vainquish it with a smile All the things that ever happened to me happened for a reason It's not about what I want but what I need, no regrets just lessons Those who hated, those who betrayed and those who brutalized And the promises left unmet were blessings in disguise I turn the negative into positive I take my nightmares and I make them dreams The planets align 'cause I chose to live I'm glad I've known the suffering Now I can fight the chaos of the mind And vainquish it with a smile Now I know there's a crack in everything But this is how the light gets in It's necessary evil I'm down to earth with my mind on Mars My feet on the ground and my head in the stars Headed to the future without dragging my past I used to be broken but I'm rebuilt at last Now I am alone but I'm alive I'm taking life one day at a time I might walk slowly but I never look back

Melody Magic 06:03
There was a time when my will had gone astray The peace of mind seemed so far away No desire left to stay I was ready for the last ride of my life To spread my wings towards the sky Forever and always But something inside me told me I had so much more to give I had to try and hold on to my one reason to live When comes the sound of death knell Is when the music casts its spell When I get out of tune I think of all I've been through The only light I see is melody magic On some days my mind gets caught in bitterness All feels so futile and useless Even my unfinished business But I know whatever happens down the road There is one thing that conforts my soul A place I can call home Something inside me tells me I have so much more to give I just have to try and hold on to my one reason to live When comes the sound of death knell Is when the music casts its spell When I get out of tune I think of all I've been through I find the strenght to carry on From the power of a song And if it wasn't for this I wouldn't want to exist When life keeps changing I go through uncertain times At least I have one dream One pride that makes me rise and shine And this is my only lifeline And when comes the time To finally say goodbye At least I know that I have lived With something to believe in But not today No, not today No I won't die today
