About "Scripted" album:
This page contains lyrics from the album
"Scripted" by Icon For Hire, which was released in 2011 and consists of 10 songs.
I don't know how I got here but I refuse to stay.
I betrayed myself when I let others have their way
But I am holding on, my finger on the pulse.
The sound of my heart pounding tells me there's still hope.
But people don't like when you put up a fight.
And slowly, ever so slowly, I am loosing mine.
I'll fight, fight, fight or be taken out alive. Fight.
Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide.
We throw tantrums like parties
We're not happy 'til everyone knows we're sick
And that's just how we like it
We've hurt bad enough, right, we've earned it
Don't tell the others but it's all getting old
I mean how many more times must our stories be told?
And being lonely's only fun in a group
It sort of loses it's charm when it's true
I say I wanna be healthy but I turn up the noise.
And the IV drips a steady stream of poison.
I think I'm just in love with the feeling.
Break my bones so I can feel them healing.
Crazy's I believe the medical term.
When we wanna recover but we don't wanna learn.
Keep breaking what's been fixed a thousand times.
And give me some more of that iodine.
Make A Move
Somebody make a move
Somebody make a move
Test my reality
Check if there's a weak spot
Clingin' to insanity
Hopes the world will ease up
Try and make it look like it's all somehow getting better
Off With Her Head
I'm lucky if I ever see the light of day again
My skin is choking me, my feeble walls are closing in
This cell is filled with scholars easing me, they're teasing me
They told me so I didn't know the fall would be this easy
How long until it starts to do me in
I can't give out what I'm not breathing in
I know they'll come with what I'm owed, guilty as charged
My enemies belittle me reminding me the penalty of all my deeds despite my
Pleas is death
Only A Memory
I can't help but close my eyes for life
And dream a different ending
That when I wake, I won't be so exhausted
And I will stop with my pretending
That I'm fine, I'm fine if I can fool myself tonight
And my lie will drown out all of yours
I will not bend until I break, how much can one bruised body take?
Just not enough to silence me, you're only a memory
I'll scream these words 'til they come true, then I will think no more of
You're not running just enough of a wreck, to hold the hurt heart everybody
Expects, And I know you wrote a history of making a mess, misunderstood's
An understatement at best
How long, how long will you demand my sympathy? We all know hurt so why do
You feel the need to...
Put on a pretty face, give them a pretty taste, No one's buying it anyway
You're so tired trying to rewind the mess you've made of your own mind...
My life is a musical, I know how to put on a pretty pathetic show, I hide
Backstage, keep the curtains closed, Cause I'm scared, I'm scared
I'm getting pretty good at feeding them the lines they like, But I don't
Recognize the girl I face each night, I can compromise till I'm convinced
What happened to the girl who could overlook the world? She never gave a
Second to what the other people thought, What happened to the dream of
Rejecting the routine? Cause they never worked for me
I am standing on the edge of returning or just running away
I am letting myself look the other way
And the hardest part in all of this is I don't think I know my way back
Is it worth the journey or do I let my heart settle here
How cold have I become
I didn't want to
Lose you by what I'd done
Caught in the grey
Up In Flames
I don't wanna say what I got on my mind, Cause nothing tonight wants to
Come out on time, The truth is I'd rather sit out and unwind, Let somebody
Else tell their story this time
I wonder what happened to give me the right, To step on a platform and pick
Up a mic, & tell you the way to be living your life, Cause all my
Credentials were lies
You've had your say, now take your seat, I know my place, you don't know me
