Armor

Like Water

After All

Lyrics by Karen Penton

Sometimes I think I like the pain

An unruly soul to try and tame

But that shit’s overrated

In the end I’ll come to realize

Wake me and unhypnotize

Pull this blindfold from my eyes

 

All the things I tried to say

You know I hate my heart upon display

Mistakes have made me jaded

And in the end I’ll barely recognize Illusions built upon the lies

Of the one I’ve shamed and hated

 

Catch my breath and fade away

When all my ghosts come out to play

I’m keeping distance, losing faith

I wear my armor

And I`m still running

 

I like to think it’s all a game

The only way to keep it sane

But how do I stop playing

Pieces break who wins the race

Who get to take your time and space

When will I trust myself again

 

Catch my breath and fade away

When all my ghosts come out to play

I’m keeping distance, losing faith

I wear my armor

And I`m still running

Catch my breath and fade away

When all my ghosts come out to play

I’m keeping distance, losing faith

I wear my armor

Catch my breath and fade away

When all my ghosts come out to play

I’m keeping distance, losing faith

I wear my armor

On My Own

I was so tragic

with a lustful doubt

Shipwrecked in habit

couldn’t figure it out

With my cynical heart

on a lonely avenue

There you appeared

out of the blue

 

Dive in your ocean   

You led me in

Your love is like water 

Where you end and I begin

 

A sea uncharted  

It was still unclear  

You pulled me under and

drowned my fears   

We’d get lost for hours

in a heart shaped view

Let your waves wash over me

shiny and new

 

Dive in your ocean   

You led me in

Your love is like water 

Where you end and I begin

 

You can save me save me  

As I crash into you  

Where I go you’re with me

Where you go I’m with you

 

Dive in your ocean   

You led me in

Your love is like water 

Where you end and I begin

Dive in your ocean   

You led me in

Your love is like water 

Where you end and I begin

Dive In your ocean

Dive in your ocean

Where you end and I begin

In a make believe

Of faded memories 
Starry eyed endless skies
Waging day for night

Years are gaining on me 
Hands of time

Let it die
In a winter sleep

I direct my own scene
Close my eyes I can fly
Spotlight in the sky

And it's shining on me 
I'm alive

And I awake

I have seen the wherewithal
And I believe 
After All

Talking in my sleep

Enamored by a dream
View so high

I can climb
 Swimming in a sea

Longing endlessly
I will rise

Then I awake

I have been all along
And I believe

After all

All the shiny things

Are waiting for me 

Waiting for me

And I awake
I have seen the wherewithal
And I have been in a sea

Full of charms
And I believe
After all 

Beautiful Raven

Take it all 
Watch me fall
See you smile as I crawl
Here I go 
All alone
Never make it on my own

I remember how you used to love me
You kept me close and said

You'd always be around
Now I feel as if I'm going crazy
I'm at your mercy
You can't keep me down

Take it all 
Watch me fall
See you smile as I crawl
Here I go 
All alone
Never make it on my own

You're drowning me

I'm weak and fading
You always find a way

To keep me on the ground
This hole you dug for me

I'm suffocating
I'm tired of waiting
You can't keep me down 

Take it all 
Watch me fall
See you smile as I crawl
Here I go 
All alone
Never make it on my own
Take it all 
Watch me fall
See you smile as I crawl
Here I go 
All alone
Never make it on my own

 

We've known each other for some time
Through thick and thin

We've been right by each other's side
But there are some things

We just can't hide

Words unspoken

 Hearts left broken
I can't cry
Did we even try

How many times do I have to break
How many nights I lie awake
How come you're gone and you still take 
A piece of me with you
Can we forget mistakes we've made
When will I know I'll be ok
How can I let these memories fade
And how do I  
How do I forget you

We sleep together but alone
And there are things

I'll never let you know
But I can't stand to let you go

Words unspoken  

Hearts left broken
I can't cry
Did we even try

How many times do I have to break
How many nights I lie awake
How come you're gone and you still take 
A piece of me with you
Can we forget mistakes we've made
When will I know I'll be ok
How can I let these memories fade
And how do I  
How do I forget you

Words unspoken  

Hearts left broken
I can't cry
Can  we make it right

How Do  I Forget You

Lightning Strikes

She was Daddy's beauty queen

And Mommy's sweet little flower
It was so perfect it seemed
Until that final hour
Some things change in time
But in the blink of an eye
Everything changes

Lightning Strikes

Hold on tight she cried
I'll never get out alive
Fight or Flight

Live or die

This time
Never give up the fight

They made their way unknowingly

To the crime that they would encounter
Deceived so innocently
Paralyzed he took their power
All that's left is shame
How do you numb the pain
When everything changes

Lightning Strikes

Hold on tight she cried
I'll never get out alive
Fight or Flight

Live or die

This time
Never give up the fight

And so this irony
A life condemned defending
Betrayed by the powers that be
No happy ending

Lightning Strikes

Hold on tight she cried
I'll never get out alive
Fight or Flight

Live or die

This time
Never give up the fight


Away you go , away you go, she cried
You only get one life
Lightning Strikes

Hold on tight she cried
Never give up the fight

 

On The Verge

The sun was setting down the road
The window panes all turned to gold

And under the stars is where we played
I was barely twelve years old
With a lust for life and a hopeful glow
When innocence begins to fade

Ooh on the verge
In between the space

where lines gets blurred
We were on the edge of breaking of free
And finding out who we could be
Ooh on the verge

We walked the streets

Like they were home
Never did we feel alone
Living for the twilight
Out of sight we'd hide away
Breaking rules to find our way
Into the tall trees is where we'd hide

Ooh on the verge
In between the space

Where lines gets blurred
We were on the edge of breaking of free
And finding out who we could be
Ooh on the verge

Now I've got a few kids of my own

The more you think the less you know
Then I remember those days
The sun will rise and the winds will blow
And the seeds you plant

Take root and grow
Just trying to find their own way

Ooh on the verge
In between the space

Where lines gets blurred
We were on the edge of breaking of free
And finding out who we could be
Ooh on the verge
In between the space

Where lines gets blurred
We were on the edge of breaking of free
And finding out who we could be
Ooh on the verge

 

Rebellious heart

Musical nature
Old school voice

And a lyrical mind
A broken heart

Is all he gave her 
All alone  herself to find

You flew so high and fell so low
Your final hour would come and go
This sabotage  you do to yourself
You fed the flame

Til the fire burned out

Harrowed souls

Intoxicating
Twist of fate

Their worlds collide
A losing game

All chances taken
Her broken wings

Won't let her fly

You flew so high and fell so low
Your final hour would come and go
This sabotage  you do to yourself
You fed the flame

Til the fire burned out

You never wanted the spotlight
You tried to hide from the fame
The broken and beautiful raven
Now feels no pain..

You flew so high and fell so low
Your final hour would come and go
This sabotage  you do to yourself
You fed the flame
You flew so high and fell so low
Your final hour would come and go
This sabotage  you do to yourself
You fed the flame

Til the fire burned out
 

No Reply

Another place and time 
Looking from the outside
She had to find her way
Impressions from the pain 
Never would they go away
She tried to free her mind
One last time

To see if she could fly 
She climbed a mountain side
To never touch the ground
Her stage a velvet sky
 Audience her reason why
The fear of coming down
One last time

You don't know what it's like
To want to reach so high
For you I'd always wait 
But that was not our fate
And there was no reply

Off in a distant town 
Her heart had finally found
The love she waited for
Though their souls intertwined
Eventually she had to fly
His heart could take no more
One last time

You don't know what it's like
To want to reach so high
For you I'd always wait 
But that was not our fate
And there was no reply

For months she tried to stay
Grounded while she bared her pain
The one that got away
A note he finally sent 
Unknowingly away she went
She had to fly away
One last time

You don't know what it's like
To want to reach so high
For you I'd always wait 
But that was not our fate
And there was no reply

 

Illogical Heart

Hey little darling

Off in the distance    
I wait here

Without resistance
Come out from the darkness         
When you call
My heart is so illogical

Thoughts are running  

Got you on my mind
As I lay here     

Getting lost in time
Don’t know where it’s going        

C can’t fight it
Afraid of the unknown

But I like

Should have known from the beginning 
Should have known from the start
But you know you just can’t reason 
With an illogical heart   

Light of the morning

Shining like a star
I dream of

Being where you are
Whose gonna save us         
When we fall
My heart is so illogical

 

Should have known from the beginning 

Should have known from the start

But you know you just can’t reason 

With an illogical heart    (x2)


Hey little darling

Off in the distance
