THE AMITY AFFLICTION LYRICS

1. Chasing Ghosts


Will they remember my name when I'm gone,
(When they know what I did was so fucking wrong)
Put the steel to my wrist, lost the breath in my chest,
(Just to forget all the wrongs I had left)
I took the exit, left my friends in the gutter,
(Left my life right behind me, left myself, left it all)
Left myself, left it all, not a falter not a stutter
Not a note, and now?
(There’s nothing at all)

[Chorus]
(Are you at all haunted by memories past?
Are you ready to make this one breath your last?
Is your chest so heavy you're ready to leave,
Or are you hoping that some one will grieve?)

And now we roll on...
I'm gone now,I don't remember much,
I just know that I would have been better off if I had stayed, spoken to a friend,
(let my heart keep on beating and not given it all up)
For the grave, for the grave
There's no one on the other side there's nothing more than what I had.
There's no ghost left to haunt you so you know I'm still here,
Just the end of my life nothing left here at all.
(There's no memories here, just regrets of the dead),
Please don't follow my footsteps - cherish all you have left.

[Chorus]
(Are you at all haunted by memories past?
Are you ready to make this one breath your last?
Is your chest so heavy you’re ready to leave?
Or are you just hoping that someone will grieve?)

There's no one there on the other side,
(there's no one there on the other side)
There's nothing more than what I had.
(There's no ghost left to haunt you)

There's no memories here (memories here)
Just the regrets of the dead (regrets of the dead)
Please don't follow in my footsteps (my footsteps)
Cherish all you have left.

[Chorus x2]
(Are you at all haunted by memories past?
Are you ready to make this one breath your last?
Is your chest so heavy you’re ready to leave?
Or are you just hoping that someone will grieve?)


2. Life Underground


You speak my name and shudder, but I'm still here.
I built a bridge here just to burn it, just to light my faded path,
so I could see what's down below me, because how I yearn to see you laugh.
Oh how I yearn to see you laugh.

[Chorus]
So selfish were my footsteps and so foolish are they are,
but there's not much I can do here now that I'm living underground.
Speak now my precious whispers, float softly through the breeze,
please float on by my loved ones and let them know that I'm still here...

You speak my name and shudder, but I'm still here,
I built a bridge here just to burn it, just to light my faded path,
so I could see what's down below me, because how I yearn to see you laugh.

[Chorus]
So selfish were my footsteps and so foolish are they now,
but there's not much I can do here now that I'm living underground.
Speak now my precious whispers, float softly through the breeze,
please float on by my loved ones and let them know that I'm still here...

And we sing woah oh woah, our voices carry through the hills.
Woah oh woah oh, the whole world is standing still we're singing for the dead,
for the lost and for the stolen
our hearts beat double time, and oh they feel so broken, oh how they
feel so broken.

Is this really what I wished for
when I felt my feet drag heavy on the earth?
Is this really the answer I sought when I was searching for self worth?
Go now precious whispers, float my sorrow into the sea,
let the waves collapse above me, and wash away my fucking memory.

[Chorus]
So selfish were my footsteps and so foolish are they are,
but there's not much I can do here now that I'm living underground.
Speak now my precious whispers, float softly through the breeze,
please float on by my loved ones and let them know that I'm still here...


3. R.I.P. Bon


I was waiting for you man, right down there by the sea
where we used to meet, to share in our pain and decry misery.
I waited I waited I waited I swear, but when I got down to the ocean,
man you were not fucking there,
I just wish that you spoke up and held out your hand
because you I was there man you that I cared.

[Chorus]
I waited for you but you never came, no you never came
and now that you're gone I feel I'm to blame yeah i feel I'm to blame

I wanted to hear it, I wanted to know.
I've been grieving so much with each passing day,
but I'm angry and hurt and I hate you all the same.
I just wish that you spoke up and held out your hand
because you know I was there man you know that I cared.

[Chorus]
I waited for you but you never came, no you never came
and now that you're gone I feel I'm to blame yeah i feel I'm to blame

I know now you hated life even more with each breath,
I know now that you did not have any fight left.
To know you were grieving with each passing day (I know you were
grieving with each passing day)
and to know most of all you did not want to say (and I know most of
all you did not want to stay)
and you know you were grieving with each passing day.

[Chorus]
I waited for you but you never came no you never came
and now that you're gone I feel I'm to blame yeah I feel I'm to blame
did I never listen did I never show, did I never show
'Cause I wanted to hear. I wanted to hear it I wanted to know.


4. Open Letter


This is my open letter,
This is something to remember.
I won't be buried before my time,
I'm not searching for forever,
I've got my eyes opened wide,
I've been searching under rubble from the past,
just looking for a reason to make your life last.
No need to look skyward for you to find hope,
no need for redemption to be saved from the rope,

Fuck No!

[Chorus]
I'm not searching the sky for a reason to live
'cause I found beauty right here and found the passion to give,
so let me give you my heart, let me give you my tears,
let me give you my life, let me give you my fears.

Just so you can hold on and sing while I do, sing these words out so loud,
like I sing them for you.
This is your open letter, something to remember,
we can still keep on fighting even though life is not forever.

[Chorus]
I'm not searching the sky for a reason to live
'cause I found beauty right here and found the passion to give,
so let me give you my heart, let me give you my tears,
let me give you my life, let me give you my fears.

This is my open letter, this is something to remember.
This is my open letter, I'm not searching for forever.

[Chorus x2]
I'm not searching the sky for a reason to live
'cause I found beauty right here and found the passion to give,
so let me give you my heart, let me give you my tears,
let me give you my life, let me give you my fears.
One more time!


5. Greens Avenue


I'll never know what led me down that path,
what made me lose my grasp (what made me lose my grasp).
But now the years have passed and I know in my heart,
no matter where I am. I won't follow that path.
There are things that I've said there are people I've hurt,
there are moments in time when I've been down in the dirt
and I know that it's hard to let go of our pasts
but in each one of us there is hope for fresh starts.

[Chorus]
So if I hurt you, if I let you down just remember we were close, we were down.
I found life, I found this and it's all of your strength that got me through it.

Just know that I know you went through the same shit,
even if you were too fucking proud to admit.
So brothers in arms, let's march home towards calm,
towards oceans and shorelines with open arms.

[Chorus]
So if I hurt you, if I let you down just remember we were close, we were down.
I found life, I found this and it's all of your strength that got me through it.

So brothers in arms, let's march home towards calm,
towards oceans and shorelines with open arms. [x4]

[Chorus]
So if I hurt you, if I let you down just remember we were close, we were down.
I found life, I found this and it's all of your strength that got me through it.

I'll never know what led me down that path,
what made me lose my grasp (what made me lose my grasp).
But now the years have passed and I know in my heart,
no matter where I am I won't follow that path.


6. I Heart H.C.


I know you feel like you're the only one,
Like you've had enough, like you should just give up,
Like you don't give a fuck,

But let me tell you my friends that when it ends it just ends,
There's no afterlife you don't come back from death; [x2]

[Chorus]
So when you leave this earth, when your heart stops you'll see,
There's no choir of angels there's no gods to meet.

You leave friends you leave family, leave lovers leave home.
Then you'll be on your own.
So let me tell you my friends that when it ends it just ends,
There's no afterlife you don't come back from death:

[Chorus]
So when you leave this earth, when your heart stops you'll see,
There's no choir of angels there's no gods to meet.

There's no afterlife you don't come back from death;
Just know this my friend as you let go of hope,
As you struggle with your life and grip tightly that rope,

[Chorus x2]
So when you leave this earth, when your heart stops you'll see,
There's no choir of angels there's no gods to meet.

There is love to be found if you'll just open your heart,
There is light to be found when you are lost in the dark,
There are people who'll listen and people who care
And I know this my friend because I too have been there.
There's no afterlife you don't come back from death.


7. Flowerbomb


Well I know there's been times when I wished I would die,
but I swear yeah I swear oh I swear I'm past that,
and I'll swear if you will that I will not look back,
yeah I swear if you will that I will not look back.

[Chorus]
Take a deep breath now, pass the shallows,
stay steady and hold on, through the darkness we all know.

And I swear yeah I swear yeah I swear if you will,
to hold onto life, yeah I'll hold on if you will...

So on to the ocean and into the sea, so balanced and calm now, that's
where I will be.
So on to the ocean and into the sea wash away all my problems wash
away memories.

Back then - always through the shattered glass
I stared at my life, and oh I wished I would die,
but I swear yeah I swear oh I swear I'm past that -
is this all what it seems - I can't believe that I made it.
Take a deep breath now, pass the shallows,
stay steady and hold on, through the darkness we all know -
And I swear yeah I swear yeah I swear if you will, to hold onto life,
yeah I'll hold on if you will...

[Chorus]
So on to the ocean and into the sea, so balanced and calm now, that's
where I will be.
So on to the ocean and into the sea wash away all my problems wash
away memories.

Take a deep breath now, pass the shallows,
stay steady and hold on, through the darkness we all know.

And I swear yeah I swear yeah I swear if you will,
to hold onto life, yeah I'll hold on if you will...

So on to the ocean and into the sea, so balanced and calm now, that's
where I will be.
So on to the ocean and into the sea wash away all my problems wash
away memories.


8. Pabst Blue Ribbon On Ice


Remember, remember the times when we were younger,
when we shed our tears many times close together.
Remember remember the days left behind,
and the words lost between us in the valleys of time.
Remember my friend now remember my lover,
when I told you that I'd never recover.
And remember the cold stormy weather,
and the promise I made I'd love you forever.
I meant it I swear that I meant it forever.

[Chorus]
If my eyes are the oceans that put your head in the clouds
then your heart is the reason I keep my feet on the ground.
I've just watched the world turning, kept my head held up high,
kept my feet on the ground, kept the hope in my eyes.

I mean't it I swear that I meant it and mean it,
and after that time I will always repeat it,
I love you I swear and I won't let you go,
that's something I really need you to know.
Remember my friend now remember my lover
when I told you that I would never recover? Well...

[Chorus]
If my eyes are the oceans that put your head in the clouds
then your heart is the reason I keep my feet on the ground.
I've just watched the world turning, kept my head held up high,
kept my feet on the ground, kept the hope in my eyes.

I love you I swear and I won't let you go,
that's something that I really need you to know. [x2]
And then you embraced me with your entire being,
and we were carried away off to a peaceful sea...

[Chorus]
If my eyes are the oceans that put your head in the clouds
then your heart is the reason I keep my feet on the ground.
I've just watched the world turning, kept my head held up high,
kept my feet on the ground, kept the hope in my eyes.


9. Geof Sux 666


I know you're sinking deeper, every breath a straining gasp.
And I know you're wishing 'please death, just make this breath my last'
but there's life out there for living,
my friend we will not give in, take these words and let the light in,
we'll give you everything worth giving.

I heard a story from a friend about you just last night,
about you swinging by your neck there in the softly fading light -
man you've gotta call you've gotta write you've gotta leave -
get back to all your friends and all the places you should be.
You're too lonesome man, I get it, I've been there once before.

[Chorus]
And I know you're wishing 'please death, just make this breath my last'
but there's life out there for living,
my friend we will not give in, take these words and let the light in,
we'll give you everything worth giving.

I've sailed the stormy seas, I've felt my heart rise in my throat,
I've thought of leaving all my friends and thought of letting go:
but I found life left in these limbs and found the strength to start again,
I found my heart right in my hands and found relief in all my friends.

Don't Give Up!
Don't Give Up!

But I found life left in these limbs and found the strength to start again,
I found my heart right in my hands and found relief in all my friends.

but there's life out there for living,
my friend we will not give in, take these words and let the light in,
we'll give you everything.

[Chorus]
I know you're sinking deeper, every breath a straining gasp.
And I know you're wishing 'please death, just make this breath my last'
but there's life out there for living,
my friend we will not give in, take these words and let the light in,
we'll give you everything worth giving.


10. Bondi St. Blues


I spent my time back then thinking of nothing but them,
the dead ends of my thoughts the last friends in my head:
and you heard me you heard me you heard me my friend,
sent the ship over seas to save me from death.
Through the storms I have weathered through the dark and the rain,
you sent me the ship that i sail on today.

[Chorus]
And the boat sails on like you sang in your song,
and my mind feels clearer several years on.
And the ship that was sailing on,
those storm ridden seas
was my heart and your words gave me heart back to me.

My mind was a turbine that fueled all the storms,
and those words were the courage in which calmness took form.
Through the storms I have weathered
through the dark and the rain,
you sent me the ship that I sail on today.

[Chorus]
And the boat sails on like you sang in your song,
and my mind feels clearer several years on.
And the ship that was sailing on,
those storm ridden seas
was my heart and your words gave me heart back to me.

I've found life, found the strength in myself to grow up
I've found friends, and the strength and the want to live
And the ship that was sailing on,
those storm ridden seas
was my heart and your words gave me heart back to me.
Through the storms I have weathered
through the dark and the rain,

[Chorus]
And the boat sails on like you sang in your song,
and my mind feels clearer several years on. [x3]
And the ship that was sailing on,
those storm ridden seas
was my heart and your words gave me heart back to me.


11. Too Legit To Quit




12. Snicklefritz


[Youngbloods B-Side Bonus Track]

[from "Glory Days" Compilation Album]

I've spent my life down
In the depths of an enigmatic mind
Where the water turns to black
It's there alone I spend my time.
Try to see my own reflection
Try to divide
Myself in equal parts
For every heart I've left behind.

For every heart I've left behind

But my heart it isn't such
Such a lonely hunter
(Such a lonely hunter)
It's just trying to stay afloat
And keep from going under
(Keep from going under)
'cause the steps that I seem to take
(To take)
They just won't give me the time
(No time)
The time to pull myself together time to hit rewind

It's where the root of all my evil lies
Where it digs still ever deeper
Where you'll eventually find my heart
The heaviest of heavy sleepers
It's in the darkness and the guilt
And all the heartbreak blood I've spilt
It's there you'll find me hiding out
In the darkness sitting still

I'm sick so sick
Just sick and tired
Of trying to believe
In every lie
There are no hearts
Not even fucking mine

Just black tar pits
And empty eyes.

But my heart it isn't such
Such a lonely hunter
(Such a lonely hunter)
It's just trying to stay afloat
And keep from going under
(Keep from going under)
'cause the steps that I seem to take
(To take)
They just won't give me the time
(No time)
The time to pull myself together time to hit rewind

I've been searching,
For something,
Some semblance
Of myself
But I've
Left that behind,
Always searching
For myself and hoping
That I'll like what I find.

But my heart it isn't such
Such a lonely hunter
(Such a lonely hunter)
It's just trying to stay afloat
And keep from going under
(Keep from going under)
'cause the steps that I seem to take
(To take)
They just won't give me the time
(No time)
The time to pull myself together time to hit rewind

The time
To hit
Rewind


13. 15 Pieces Of Flare


[Youngbloods B-Side Bonus Track]

[from "Glory Days" Compilation Album]

I saw the bridge today, I thought I had it burned
Made a stop to memories, I drowned out and had covered
Falling down into the river, where we’re broken and destroyed
And understand I saw the coming of a past I’d left destroyed

I saw the ghost of everyday, of every year I have forgotten,
And the grief and the confusion
Of a world I’d soon discover
The ghost of myself, is still mourning all the lives I won’t discover,
Because I buried myself forever

I buried myself, and carved out new existence,
Where the memories were burned, and break all of my wishes,
And now I still pull down myself, and I’m trying to find the bridge, and build the life
And build the life, the life I always wanted
Be no room, with much to give, open my eyes, and take the world, and take a breath
In turgid water, where I’ve hidden away,
And I set my heart to slaughter
And the past I’ve left destroyed

I saw the ghost of everyday, of every year I have forgotten,
And the grief and the confusion
The ghost of myself, is still mourning all the lives I won’t discover,
Because I buried myself forever

Yeah!

My future, will not, be defined, by my past.
My future, our future.
