lyrics

Face of failure
Am C
if everything was crystal clear
wouldnt life be sweet and dear
if everything was crystal clear
noone would have to shed a tear
but nothing is just as it was
a blurry window to the future near
a constant change hanging in the air
life is just one giant mirror

G Em Am Am
trying to make it through this life
G Em Dm Am
trying to be happy in a sea of discontent
trying to make it to the top
trying to succeed in the face of all this failure

if everything were laid out for you
oh how it would make life so easy
if everything was planned out for you
oh how easy it would be to simply follow
but all of life requires work
a little effort, a little might
just don't give up, fight the fight
and in the end, you'll soon find

starting to make it through this life
starting to be happy in a sea of discontent
starting to make it to the top
starting to succeed in the face of all this failure

you have everything you ever wanted
and yet, that's still not enough
you have everything you ever wanted
and still inside you feel an empty hole
material things are a waste of time
once you have the best, another appears
you'll never be on top, just really close
and the facts settle in and soon you are

dying now that you've made it through this life
dying of discontent in a sea of happiness
dying up here, sitting at the top
dying like a failure in the face of your success


G Em Am Am
failing to make it through this life

Tear Me Down
Verse (DmDmAmG)
a hole in the wall
a fist to my head
a shuddering crash
as I'm flung to the floor

all of this pain
it seems so unfair
I need someplace to run
I need someplace to hide

And then someone came to me
shared with me your word
I was lifted up
I was given hope

Taken from that dark place
surrounded by your light
I started feeling awesome
I simply started feeling

prechorus(CAmEm)

I felt like I could do anything I wanted to
I felt like I had the whole world in my hands
I gave myself wings and tried to soar high
but you came
to set me straight
and I sank

chorus(CEmCEmCAmEm)

Deeper than the sea
You'll tear me down
Even from mount everest
you tear me down
I'm nothing Lord, I'm nothing Lord
compared to you

Our heads are getting bigger
thinking that we're in control
As great as I become
to the eyes of man
I'm nothing Lord, I'm nothing Lord
Please tear me down
=====

Verse

Lord, you revealed to me
just what I must do
help me to set forth
simply doing your will

Lord I'm not perfect
But I think I'm dang close
I bask in your glory
and walk in your word

the people they love me
they want to follow
the path I am leading
the path into heaven

Deep in my heart rots
sin, disgusting and vile
pride and envy inside
I was dirt in your eyes

prechorus 2

I was thinking I could do anything I wanted to
I was thinking I had the whole world in my hands
I was trying to fly higher on my self given wings
but you came
to set me straight
and I sank

chorus

bridge:EmCAmEm

Ruin me Lord, oh tear me down
So I may be lifted up
Break me Lord, oh tear me down
I am yours, your will be done.

Although it's a little disconcerting that i have to post the lyrics when I sang them in the song lol. Are they hard to make out?

YouTube - Dark Illusions

Sometimes it feels
like I'm losing control
Succumbing to emotions
that are not really there
Even though I know,
that this pain is an illusion
I still have inclinations
of letting it all go

even though I know
that my future will be grand
I still can't shake this feeling
that nothing lies ahead
my world it seems bleak
my life has lost its color
my life has lost its purpose
now I simply exist

chorus
------
In this world of illusions
where emotions are not real
In this world of mass intrusion
where joy no longer reigns
where the light once shone so brightly
only darkness does remain
but brightly in the distance
there shines a light of hope
------

reality is seeping through
my brick wall of emotions
crumbling into dust
the hardened edges of my soul
I have never felt the truth
in oh so long a time
patiently I wait to see
if time will heal my wounds

A helping hand is all I need
to help my heart pull through
I turn to my oldest friend
he's always pulled me through
he took me to the water
and washed away my sin
now he's walking by my side
as I travel down this path

chorus

now as I sit here
pondering the present
my future seems so bright
while my past is bleak and dry
but ever ever farther
away it falls behind
until it settles in the dust
far gone from my mind

he is my hope I cling on tight
unwilling to let go
my future is my destiny
and he will lead the way
the darkness of my past will not
encroach into my life
for there he walks right by my side
with him I'm not alone
