Machine Gun Kelly – Pretty Toxic Revolver Lyrics

Play this song

[Verse 1]
Danger, one of us just lost our savior
Gotta maintain when you’re going insane, so I say this prayer
Dear God, why do I need this medicine to control my anger?
And do you even exist? They’re trying to say it’s a myth
Lotta things left unsaid, lotta things left unanswered
My aunt just passed from cancer
Dad just got out of rehab
And mom’s never gonna show up, gotta grow up
Ride with me through the memories inside of me
‘Til the nights I was hooked on the ivory
Head hurting all week ’cause of bad coke
Then the same week Peep overdosed, that’s fucked up
But I guess I lucked up
And I feel this pain because it probably won’t be until
The day I die that they love us
But trust, every nomination I don’t get
Every list that I ain’t on
Is a reminder of why I wrote songs in the first place
As a way to escape where I came from

[Chorus]
This just my pretty toxic
Heavy conscience weighing on my soul
Six shots in my revolver
When I’m on my own

[Verse 2]
Play this song
On the first day I am gone, I do not want you to cry
Legends never die, I hope our story’s told
And the year spent on that road
Before they came to our shows
We were creating our lane, I hope they pave it in gold
Take me home, somewhere I belong
Somewhere foreign, looks like Dali’s drawing
Yeah, isn’t it funny that whenever you got a vision
A mission and a couple of plans to go with it
Somebody gotta come along mad and damage it
Like a cancer that inhabits never banishes
I managed to smoke five grams of cannabis
And still keep my stamina for the fans and the goddamn cameras
That attack my stance like Evangelists
I said truth and they couldn’t handle it
So when it sinks you stand in it
I guess this is my Titanic
With no James Cameron to direct this draft of it
Just my

[Chorus]
Pretty toxic heavy conscience
Weighing on my soul
Six shots in my revolver
When I’m on my own, back against the wall
It got me anxious
Helpless, frigid, cold
Late nights drinking on my own
Now I’m fearless, Al Capone
To my dearest, I ain’t gone

JJ Heller – What Love Really Means

He cries in the corner where nobody sees
He’s the kid with the story
No one would believe
He prays every night
"Dear God won’t you please
Could you send someone here
Who will love me?"

Who will love me for me
Not for what I have done
Or what I will become
Who will love me for me
‘Cause nobody has shown me what love
What love really means

Her office is shrinking a little each day
She’s the woman whose husband has run away
She’ll go to the gym after working today
Maybe if she was thinner
Then he would’ve stayed
And she says…
Who will love me for me
Not for what I have done
Or what I will become
Who will love me for me
‘Cause nobody has shown me what love
What love really means
What love really means

He’s waiting to die as he sits all alone
He’s a man in a cell who regrets what he’s done
He utters a cry from the depths of his soul
"Oh Lord, forgive me, I want to go home"

Then he heard a voice somewhere deep inside
And it said,
"I know you’ve murdered and I know you’ve lied
And I have watched you suffer all of your life
And now that you’ll listen I’ll, I’ll tell you that I…"

I will love you for you
Not for what you have done
Or what you will become
I will love you for you
I will give you the love
The love that you never knew
Love you for you
Not for what you have done
Or what you will become
I will love you for you
I will give you the love
The love that you never knew

Logic – Confess Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I want what I want how I want when I want it
I’ma keep it a hunnid, I’m blunted
I don’t give a damn, I don’t give a fuck about another man
Fuck a brother man
I’ma make it, make it rain like the weather man
Old girl shoulda, shoulda got a better man
Ass fat, lookin’ good in my letterman
In the hood I’m a better man
Wish a mothafucka would, would
Whole life I been up to no good
Change it all if I could
Rearrange my heart, the beat good but I can’t
I’m a sinner, not a saint
Layers to my life, no I can’t
Cover it up with paint
Keep on livin’, livin’
Livin’ on money and women
As soon as I’m in ’em, I’m out
Now the truth never come out my mouth
Speak life when I come in her mouth, like
I’m a dirty mothafucka, a waste of life, a waste of skin
Wanna repent, don’t know where to begin
Next of kin don’t give a damn ’bout me
I know God don’t give a damn ’bout me
People try but don’t know ’bout me
But the Devil said that he want my soul
But the Devil said that he want my soul
Give it to me right now
Give it to me right now
Give it to me right now
Give it to me right now

[Chorus]
Somebody save me
I need you to save me
To wash away my sins on high

[Verse 2]
I’d rather be a different man in another world
Than work for the man in my universe
Wonder what it feel like to take flight
Momma told me everything gon’ be alright
I mean my life can’t be off right
But come to think about it
Everybody runnin’ the world seem to be all white
Can you mothafuckas see alright?
I mean, I need it, I want it, I gotta have it
Every day tragic
If you’re from where I’m from, everyday ain’t magic
On this I know
I been telling everybody I’ma give it a go, I know
I been there before, feel it in my soul, oh I know!
Love it or hate it, I made it
I did it, I lived it
While the whole world lookin’ at the boy like whoa!
Baptized in a ocean of Hennessey
Really wonder what the remedy
Tell me, how the world gon’ remember me?
Got me feelin like the enemy
Like I ain’t got no energy
I been lookin’ for an entity
Feelin’ like I need to chill, like I need a new amenity
Fuck all that
I’m a dirty mothafucka, a waste of life
A waste of skin
Wanna repent, don’t know where to begin
Next of kin don’t give a damn ’bout me
I know God don’t give a damn ’bout me
People try but don’t know ’bout me
But the Devil said that he want my soul
But the Devil said that he want my soul
Give it to me right now
Give it to me right now
Give it to me right now
Give it to me right now

[Chorus]
Somebody save me
I need you to save me
To wash away my sins on high

[Bridge]
I know my life was lived the wrong way
I know I did you wrong in my own way
But it was the flashing lights that mesmerized
That hypnotized the only
Part of me you loved
Part of me that had the strength to rise above
Part of me you know
Part of me you love more than to let it go

[Outro: Killer Mike]
Dear God, I just wanna know why
Why do you put us here?
Why do you put us below?
Why do you put us subservient?
Why do you put us below these evil motherfuckers?
And then we crawl and we scratch our way out
We betray each other
We lie, we take from one another
And we told you gon’ forgive us at the end
But the state don’t forgive us
I’m locked up and half my friends
And then when I get out, or I make it out
I’m expected to somehow give back
To people who never wanted to see me escape
I’m startin’ to hate the man in the mirror
And it’s gettin’ clearer
That society was designed to keep me on the bottom
So, if you real, if you’re out there for real
Please explain to me why
Why do we suffer? Why do we die?
And why do the people
Who go against everything you ever said always get ahead?
I’ve done so much wrong, I don’t know if I can ever be right
But tonight, I am in this church
Asking you to show yourself, to reveal yourself to me
Because I’m tired and I don’t know what else to do
So black I’m blue, so brown I’m down
I done been everywhere but up, and when I finally get up
I am ravaged with guilt and pain and shame
And all I wanna do is believe in you
The darker you are, the closer you are to dirt
And they make sure it hurts
And I am tired of hurtin’, man
I’m tired of bein’ looked at, second guessed, doubted, feared
So if you out there, do something about this
‘Cause I can’t take it no more
Help me

Leslie Bricusse – Jekyll And Hyde Concept Album – I Need To Know Lyrics lyrics

[JEKYLL]
I need to know
The nature of the demons that possess Man’s soul
I need to know
Why man’s content to let them make him less than whole

Why does he revel in murder and madness?
What is it makes him be less than he should?
Why is he doomed not to reach his potential?
His soul is black when he turns his back upon good

I need to find
A way to get inside the tortured mind of man
I need to try
To separate the good and evil, if I can

One thing is certain—the evil is stronger
Good fights hopeless and desperate fight
I must find ways of adjusting the balance
To bring him back from the empty black edge of night!

I need to go
Where no man has ventured before
To search for the key to the door
That will end all this tragic and senseless decay!
But how to go?
I need to know!

I need to learn
The secrets of the mind that we can not discern
I need to learn
The things that make men pass the point of no return

Why does a wise man take leave of his senses?
Where is that fine line where sanity melts?
When does intelligence give way to madness?
A moment comes when a man becomes something else

I need to know
Why man plays this strange double game
His hand always close to the flame
It’s a deal with the Devil he cannot disclaim
But what’s his aim?
I need to know!

Dear God, guide me
Show me how to succeed
With your wisdom inside me
Henry Jekyll will follow where ever you lead!

I need to see
The truth other men cannot see
To be things that others can’t be
Give me the courage to go where no angel will go
And I will go!
I need to know!

Emeli Sande – Sweet Architect lyrics

[Chorus]
Oh sweet architect
My bones are heavy and my soul’s a mess
I can’t find my address
Build me up, build me up
Oh sweet architect
I’ve been lonely since the day you left
So come and find my address
Build me up, build me up

[Verse 1]
Guess we’ve got deep love, but it’s a deeper ocean
Dear God help us keep floating
See some choke and some panic
Some got a boat, but most haven’t
Oh dear heaven, you know we’re tryin’ make it
But dear heaven, you know it’s complicated
We’ve got deep love, but it’s a deeper ocean
We’ve got deep love

[Chorus]
Oh sweet architect
My bones are heavy and my soul’s a mess
Come find my address
Build me up, build me up
Oh sweet architect
I’ve been lonely since the day you left
So come and find my address
Build me up, build me up

[Verse 2]
Help me, we’re still hearing, we’re still breathing
Knee deep with the deep kneeling
We stay brave looking, we’ve been damaged
See most got a heart, but some’s damaged
Oh dear heaven, I hope you’re up to something
Cause dear heaven, this just can’t be for nothing
We’re still here, we’re still breathing
We’re still here

[Chorus]
Oh sweet architect
My bones are heavy and my soul’s a mess
Come find my address
Build me up, build me up
Oh sweet architect
I’ve been lonely since the day you left
So come and find my address
Build me up, build me up

[Bridge](4x)
Build me up, build me up
Build me up, build me up

[Chorus]
Oh sweet architect
My bones are heavy and my soul’s a mess
Come find my address
Build me up, build me up
Oh sweet architect
I’ve been lonely since the day you left
So come and find my address
Build me up, build me up

[Verse 1]
Guess we’ve got deep love, but it’s a deeper ocean
Dear God help us keep floating
See some choke and some panic
Some got a boat, but most haven’t
Oh dear heaven, you know we’re tryin’ make it
Oh dear heaven, you know it’s complicated
We’ve got deep love, but it’s a deeper ocean
We’ve got deep love
