Autumn
Grieves Lyrics


Woke up in a cold sweat
Alone where the ghost slept
I never thought I was the type
I would have took the frost but I must have made it obvious
Cause every time it happens I'm the one who gets the bite
Fading like the lights on the last bus out of here
Kicking up dust disappear into the night
Nothing lasts forever
But judging by the weather
I'm starting to get a sick feeling that it might
And I don't want to fight you anymore Benjamin
It's a plague
A lose-lose situation in a maze with a crazed man chasing the kid in me with a blade
That's too proud to ever admit he's afraid
So pile the rocks on me
I don't know what to say
The whole worlds' watching but I don't think they relate
I was right where I landed
Simple and plain
Another victim of the sickle and the flame

The flame blows out
Won't ever see it coming
Funny how
This is all I ever wanted
Was the price you paid
When you try to cross a river without drowning

Fell asleep with my bones cold
Blowing smoke through a froze throat
Trying to focus on the flash
I would of grabbed the whip
But they must have seen me coming
Cause no matter what I do I always seem to catch the lash
Painting with the ash left sitting at the base of what I used to be
Pretty familiar with as home
I don't know if fate's trying to kill me
Or teach me how to grow
But either way it's got me feeling hopeless
And I don't want to climb this tattered up rope anymore
Sick of thinking I'ma fall
The Devil's greatest trick was convincing the world he never existed
And mine was a broken crystal ball
Looking at the shards trying to figure out the future with a bloody hand holding it together from the base
Funny how the butterflies flapping in my stomach finally figured out a way to make a valiant escape
We talk about the coals and the bats
Choking on the facts
Fighting with the current to our backs
Nobody ever promised me tomorrow more than anybody told me
I would die before I ever made it back
And even if I had
It's only a matter of time until it catches up with me to loosen up my grasp
Everything I've done in the name of being strong always seems to come around and try to kill me where I stand

The flame blows out
Won't ever see it coming
Funny how
This is all I ever wanted
Was the price you paid
When you try to cross a river without drowning

Perhaps i was a victim of the cold wind, that blows by my suburb
Where brothers is brothers yet, we leave the pain under covers
Where undercovers, will always make you trip
Even if you live with suits and ties to make yourself rich
but i aint tripping its all just the same
Money rules the world if the love has changed.
Tried to fit in with the rest of the crew to make an ends
But then we turned strangers to lovers and friends.
Believe me i dont regret any thing that i said
Anybody that i heard knows i'd rather be dead
But maybe im just a below zero. Sub
Mortal Kombat ringing in my ears until the pop of drums
I want the best for my nation, the best for my brothers
even if that means losing strangers just to gain some others
Karma will come back to bite you in the back
If it dont happen to you, itd happen to your stack
Family first, ive always lived with that mentality
eyes wide open, i hope they aint mad at me
Aint apart of the supreme, nor part of your extreme,
Nor part of a dispute that makes me intervene.
I just do me and for that i praise the lord.
If that dont kill you i bet the scars on your arms will.
Rest in peace to those that past on.
I pray this generation lives to see a better song.
A better life. Cause thats what we need.
Im sick of brothers and sisters fighting for money and greed. Believe Me.

what is the meaning to this song? discuss on this thread

I'm not sure what the intention of the song is... but its a really powerful song for me. For me, this song is about having something really important to you fail and realizing that you are suicidal. It's about being a broken man with your life in ruins, and realizing you just don't want to do it anymore.

At least that's what it meant to me when I was suicidal years ago.

nicolas johnsen it's about what you said plus becoming famous and losing friends "this is all I ever wanted, that's the price you pay to try and cause the river without drowning "

Tyler Schafer

peanut butter and how good it tastes.

Austin Hall

it's about getting off meth, "sickle is the pip, flame is the lighter
