    Smelnick Creeping On You V.I.P.

    I thought that I had gotten around to that? lol.


    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
