Goodbye

Lyrics by Danny Bullis © 2010

Verse 1

Daily I’m reminded by the dirt beneath my nails

Of all the things for which I strive and the mountains that I climb

Endlessly confronted with the knowing that I’ll never find my soul

Sitting here remaining motionless…    

so I guess this is where I say

Chorus

Goodbye, I’m setting sail tonight      

I don’t know if I’m ever coming back again

 'cause I’d rather risk being lost to the sea

than sit here and let my soul Slip away…        

Goodbye

Verse 2

Well it’s as if these words that pass between my lips

are overheard by the world And suddenly I’m overcome

by the sound of a billion voices telling me that

What I’m trying to do is hopless “So stay and live your days in the safety of the known,

for if you set sail you may very well find your soul, or die trying”

Chorus

Goodbye, I’m setting sail tonight      

I don’t know if I’m ever coming back again

 'cause I’d rather risk being lost to the sea

than sit here and let my soul Slip away…        

Goodbye

Bridge

I won’t give up for  if I fear to  leave the shore,

I’ll never find my soul

I’ll never live, never love, never learn,

I’ll never know, I’ll never grow

So I guess this is where I say...

Chorus

Goodbye, I’m setting sail tonight      

I don’t know if I’m ever coming back again

 'cause I’d rather risk being lost to the sea

than sit here and let my soul Slip away…        

Goodbye

Outro

Goodbye…

Goodbye

Hold On

Lyrics by Danny Bullis © 2009

Verse 1

Deeper into your wandering      

the desert trying to find the way

Searching for shelter among the ‘scape,

no signs to direct your strength will determine your fate

Prechorus

Hold on...

Chorus

I know it may be hard to believe

but trials are never what they seem

Verse 2

Slowly as days fold into nights

you lay down to rest but no rest can satisfy

With the sunlight searing your weary skin

you feel like you’re facing these trials alone again

Prechorus

Hold on… hold on...

Chorus

I know it may be hard to believe

but trials are never what they seem

Bridge

You search to find some meaning in your brokenness

I assure you, all this pain has a purpose

Just hold on and you will make it through the wilderness

And remember, nothing worth anything comes without a test

Chorus

I know it may be hard to believe

but trials are never what they seem

Right now you may be weaker than you’ve ever been

But trust you will be stronger in the end

Outro

Just hold on….

Hold on...

Paradise

Lyrics by Danny Bullis © 2007

Verse 1

Let’s set sail for brighter shores where the golden sunlight warms our shoulders

We will cross the open sea singing songs of our escape from the world

Oh, the wind and waves may shake us but even they know

they will never take us down

Prechorus

Take us down

take us down

Chorus

Let me see the sunlight,   

I tell you now clouds roll back and show me the sky

Tonight we’ll stand in twilight        

as we cast our shadows down upon golden sands

Verse 2

When the bow strikes the shore our knees strike the earth

suddenly we feel so alive

Oh, a storm has formed over the world

but it will never reach us here

Prechorus

Reach us here

Reach us here

Chorus

Let me see the sunlight,   

I tell you now clouds roll back and show me the sky

Tonight we’ll stand in twilight        

as we cast our shadows down upon golden sands

Bridge

Take us       

Take us

Prechorus

To para  - dise

To pa - ra - DISE!

Chorus

Let me see the sunlight,   

I tell you now clouds roll back and show me the sky

Tonight we’ll stand in twilight        

as we cast our shadows down upon golden sands

 Outro

TO PARADISE

woah - oh - oh

Cold of Apathy

Lyrics by Danny Bullis © 2008

Verse 

save me from the ache      

of the mistakes I knew I’d make

I bow against the rain     

I must admit that I’ve fallen again

Chorus

it took breaking you to show me just how weak I was

Not until you fell did I see my conscience

grow and warm from the cold of apathy

Verse

Beneath my coat I shiver     

but not my body  more my soul

I bow against the bitter wind   

this revelation chills me to my bones

Chorus

it took breaking you to show me just how weak I was

Not until you fell did I see my conscience 

grow and warm from the cold of apathy

Bridge

My body’s numb...   I SHIVER       

as silver breath… POURS FROM MY LUNGS

Shelter me… FROM THE COLD    

make my soul…  AS WHITE AS SNOW

Save     my      soul       

From     the     cold

Chorus

it took breaking you to show me just how weak I was

Not until you fell did I see my conscience 

grow and warm from the cold of apathy

Stalemate

Lyrics by Danny Bullis © 2011

Verse

How long must I wait to hear you say those words that I know are on your mind?

Don’t be afraid you won’t hurt me more than you already have

I don’t need your compassion, I just need your honesty.

Chorus

This stalemate is killing me

Why do I let it go on?

I’m not your pawn

Verse

I spent all I had and then-some, travelled half the world for you

I left all that was near and dear behind just to be there by your side

So is it really any wonder why it’s so hard to say goodbye?

I won’t let this fall asunder but you won’t even try

You won’t even try...

Chorus

This stalemate is killing me

Why do I let it go on?

I’m not your pawn

We’re going nowhere love

I’m beginning to stagnate

locked in this stalemate

Bridge

Well I’m sure by now this would have been enough for anyone else but me

anyone else but me

Chorus   

This stalemate has made me see

That I cannot let this go on

I’m not your pawn

Holding on for so long...

I’m beginning to walk away

Done with this stalemate

Outro

I AM DONE

DONE WITH YOU

I AM DONE

DONE WITH YOU

Mirror

  

Lyrics by Danny Bullis © 2011

Chorus

It becomes just a game when you love no one but yourself

I can already tell you’re not getting your way

by that cold-hearted condescending look upon your face

Verse

Go ahead and talk up a storm, try to impress me

well I’d rather keep my silence, sit back and let you hang on your words

don’t you know you make a better mirror, reflecting in me everything I don’t wanna be?

If I told you would you hear me...

Chorus

It becomes just a game when you love          no one but yourself

I can already tell you’re not getting your way

By that cold-hearted condescending look upon your face

Verse

Whenever we stand toe-to-toe,

face-to-face, I realize your morals are riddled with bullet holes

plug the wounds with ignorance and shift the blame to my mistakes

Everytime I see it through your eyes I can see where you’re coming from

But that doesn’t mean I agree with all  you say                             

Just when I think you’re coming back around          

Your selfishness reveals...

Chorus

It becomes just a game when you love          no one but yourself

I can already tell you’re not getting your way

By that cold-hearted condescending look upon your face

Bridge

Who is the one in the mirror, I ask

Is it you staring back at me?

You provide a way for me to see who I don’t wanna be

Chorus

It becomes just a game when you love          no one but yourself

I can already tell you’re not getting your way

By that cold-hearted condescending look upon your face

Black & Blue

Lyrics by Danny Bullis © 2013

Verse

you must resist the temptation to turn and run

you cannot wait ‘til you’re not afraid

‘cause the fear will always be there

Chorus

fight to keep a fire burning inside

with every intention to keep it alive

Fight until you’re black and blue,               

until you’re black and blue

Verse

don’t concede defeat so easily

never hesitate to wear the scars of pain

like medals on your chest

Chorus

fight to keep a fire burning inside

with every intention to keep it alive

until you’re black and blue   

don’t deny your scars give hope,

so fight…

fight until you’re black and blue…          

until you’re black and blue

Bridge

you find yourself pressed by an endless tide

in a  sea of dread

you find yourself running again,

a never-ending evasion from threat

Woa     -     oh

Woa     -     oh

Fight to keep a fire burning inside

With every intention to keep it alive!  

Chorus

so fight      

until you’re black and blue

don’t deny your scars give hope,

so fight…

fight until you’re black and blue…          

until you’re black and blue

Down

 

Lyrics by Danny Bullis © 2011

Verse 1

tell me of all the time it took for you to build this life

you never thought it could end so quickly

And now the clock is ticking, and all the sand keeps dripping down

Soon enough you must face your nightmare

Chorus

The time has come now when everything slips away

And all you’ve built has slowly started crumbling down

Step aside, keep a safe distance, don’t get caught up in the chaos

When your world comes crumbling down, down, down (down)

Verse 2

All that you hold dear, you watch it all disappear

Well my friend you know it hurts me to see you hang your head and wipe away the tears

You’ve still got a lot left to fight for, so look into my eyes and tell me you’ll never quit

Now that’s the spirit

Chorus

The time has come now when everything slips away

And all you’ve built has slowly started crumbling down

Step aside, keep a safe distance, don’t get caught up in the chaos

When your world comes crumbling down

Bridge

Gotta keep your chin up

Gotta keep your head held high

Gotta keep your eyes on the prize

and the fear inside will break apart and fall away

Chorus

The time has come now 

And all you’ve built has slowly started crumbling down

Step aside, keep a safe distance, don’t get caught up in the chaos

When your world comes crumbling down

Outro

STEP ASIDE AND KEEP YOUR DISTANCE

DON’T GET CAUGHT UP IN THE CHAOS

LOOK UP

Callous Heart

Lyrics by Danny Bullis © 2007

Verse 1

A glimpse of heaven came by in a flash of golden sunlight

But you could never see it with,  with your eyes

You could never see it with your eyes closed so tightly

Chorus

Woe to you, clean your cup not from the outside but from within

cast your vice into the fire and your soul through the crucible

Verse 2

Exposing my impurities, weaknesses iniquities

And burning through the layers of my callous heart and careless thoughts

Chorus

Woe to you, clean your cup not from the outside but from within

cast your vice into the fire and your soul through the crucible

Bridge

Open your eyes       

see what the sunlight reveals

step aside from the twisted path you follow,

or be warned, it will end in sorrow

Chorus

Woe to you, clean your cup not from the outside but from within

cast your vice into the fire and your soul through the crucible

Outro Breakdown

 CAST YOUR VICE INTO THE FIRE
