Supergirl 02:53
All shes got, is just a quiet thought, to prevent familiar pain, and all she needs, is a chance to breathe, take in the atmosphere, I knew just as soon as the light hit your eyes, the glasses can't hide, I knew you could fly, skies are looking blue, but I'll keep my mouth shut and I won't say a thing, I'm promising that secrets safe with me,the task at hand is true priority, I've covered all my walls with lead, learned early how to think ahead, backup plan, no bigger than a dime, we'll see if I will use it, though I don't want to do this, in time, I don't want to know what the papers will read, if your guard goes down, and how much you will bleed, I'd cauterize, but I can't find the wound, so I will stay back with hints of the truth, and change for your needs in this old phone booth, I wouldn't dare ruin this fantasy, I've covered all my walls with lead, taught early how to plan ahead, what wonders must this solitude fort hide, she'll never let you see them, worst of all feel them, I'll never let you look inside, And all shes got, is a quiet thought, to prevent familiar pain, and all she needs, is a chance to breathe, take in the atmosphere, take in the atmosphere

As the dirt, hits the ground, I was lost and then found, by the truth I now hold in my hand, I've been told that the taste will increase even after the feast, here I come so sleep tight in this blackest of nights, I have rose just to find, to take back ,what is mine, you can run, you can fly, but the end, it is nigh, did you feel deaths embrace, this invite on Sues face, come with me and take part as I digest your heart, It's hard not picking at these open sores (the dead shall rise), like how all fools meet their demise (the dead shall rise), the bleeding cracks the walls of Jericho (the dead shall rise), the dead shall rise

Greed 02:55
Some people live with a disease, but they wouldn't call it that as such, can't get enough and no idea, no fucking clue of way too much, Rich getting richer people poorer, it's a disgusting global trend, one hundred thousand percent sure that this won't work out in the end, There's no such thing as an overdose, no such thing as "do not need", no sense turning back once the orange light has found you, all we have is greed, Can't get a grip can't get a reason, the system has you on your knees, wish we could change it all, but, the people don't run democracies, There's no such thing as an overdose, no such thing as "do not need", no sense turning back once the orange light has found you, all we have is greed, Don't let the sirens nab you, don't the desire grab you, we've got a chance now, but, the hour's getting late, There's no such thing as an overdose, no such thing as "do not need", no sense turning back once the orange light has found you, all we have is greed, all we have is greed, all we have is greed

Booster Gold 02:15
I knew as the ball left my fingertips, felt Dads smile wash over me, through boo's and screams I fled the field, no guilt, shame, nothing but glee, but the sharks they knew, they leaked a clue, the paper read "Carter Disgraced", I had to go, I had to leave, escape to more then just a 'place', Far away, no one will remember my name, far away, another Goldstar for the fame, It's hard not to smile with a flight ring on, no 'bird or plane' over this town, the perps take shots and look so shocked when they realize my shields aren't down, with Skeets and Ted a step ahead, I'll always be the first one in line, not blasts or lights to win this fight, my greatest strengths always been time, Far away, no one will remember my name, far away, another Goldstar for the fame,far away, no one will remember my name, far away, another Goldstar for the fame, The guilt rips my chest wide open (wide open), Kord family paid out all my sins, we were meant to start again, my history hasn't been written, there's no way I won't be let in, Far away, no one will remember my name, far away, another Goldstar for the fame,far away, no one will remember my name, far away, another Goldstar for the fame,

Diana 02:20
I'm taking you, taking you in, not a soul shall hurt you again, I left it all, it all behind, a selfless sacrifice to call you mine, This might not be want you want, but I swear it's what you need, So hold me close, I'll take the lead, watch the changing colour of the leaves, so hold on tight, there's no retreat, it might come down to only you and me, I will be here, here when you call, take my hand erase the chance to fall, won't need a rope, a rope to bind you, to make this last and promise to be true, This might not be what you want, but I swear it's what you need, so open your heart to me, So hold me close, I'll take the lead, watch the changing colour of the leaves, so hold on tight, there's no retreat, it might come down to only you and me,it might come down to only you and me

Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night, I'm there, there's no one I can share with, they'll assume I'm crazy it's fair, what I would give for everything to disappear in my head, my only saving grace is to hold close the words that she said I warned you before if I open that door no telling what, who might come out, can't give into fear but they followed me here, the end will be bad, there's no doubt, I'll escape, I can't imagine all the work that comes with trying to belong, so many of you got it down to a tee, normal and strong, forgive me as I walk by, don't mean to wake you, get fucked, just cause your eyes are closed it doesn't mean you're sleeping, not stuck, I warned you before if I open that door no telling what, who might come out, can't give into fear but they followed me here, the end will be bad, there's no doubt, I'll escape, I'll escape, soon this will all be over, will answers come, I wonder, did you enjoy your puzzle book? what was your favourite part, regrettably I missed the heart, I vow to create the next one to please

Spell It Out 04:00
It's been a year, I still feel the same, just another day on another plane,with the help of Fate I search for you, I had ask all my friends to see if they understood, if they trusted me, I would bring you back, or die trying, The ring does guide me, and I have stopped fighting, desperately I will find you, It's colder now, as it stings my face, with a rotting gut, lack of time or space, now I know for sure, what you went through, not holding back but barely holding on, my nose can tell I must be close, I will have a drink and bend on through, The ring does guide me, and I am done fighting, "Take a breath,"the doctor said, "I'll wait.", so breathe the stars in cause I am coming, either way we sleep tonight, Every moment's like a rainy Monday, the suns been absent for so long, the bottle close to me is necessary, cause you're gone, The ring does guide me, and I am done fighting, "Take a breath,"the doctor said, "I'll wait.", so breathe the stars in cause I am coming, either way we sleep tonight, either way we sleep tonight

Obsidian 02:34
You want me walking in your shoes? It's like you've never met me, did you forget get about all the evil pressing? So take a bow Dad you will be regarded for leading a herd of sheep, the absurdity, it's too goddamn maddening, gotta burn the whole thing down, don't pull my sister in, this is between us fucks, reason all that you want, as long as I have bottles, there you go again, acting like we're family, my only obligation or friends, I can't stop laughing, we'll see who's left standing, gotta burn the whole thing down falling towers, made by cowards, wasted hours, wasted powers, death comes to everyone, no matter how righteous, and as you fall to sleep, could it have been me?
9.
I remember life before this ,honestly, its been too long, in my head I hear the medley, but I can't name the song, as I'm walking through the garden, the flowers they don't look the same, I try to focus on my memories, then I hear your name, I hear your name, I have painted things before this, now the canvas lays there blank, ponds been taken over by weeds, that must be where I sank, everything is changing colour, still I don't know who to blame, a couple times I've tried to break free, then I hear your name, I hear your name, I see the vines, from paradise, that feast on all life, and choke out all bright lights pending time, I see the vines, from paradise, that feast on all life, and choke out all bright lights pending time, so keep me near, it's worth the tears, didn't notice the greens become so clear
10.
The things we do for love, an all too common refrain, but the ringing in my ears could never wash away your name, and it takes more then a minute to hear that the screams are mine, and it takes all that I am to pull together just in time, so happy birthday, surprise, you're dead, but if you're in my dreams tonight I'll never leave this bed, take nothing but memories, leave nothing but footprints, but one small step was all it took to take you from my life, the question of who benefits, continues it irrelevance,when nothing in the present tense can bring me back my wife, so happy birthday, surprise, you're dead, but if you're in my dreams tonight I'll never leave this bed, so happy birthday, surprise, you're dead, but if you're in my dreams tonight I'll never leave this bed, did we stretch ourselves too thin, can't seem to wrap my head around it,but I know I'd go to any length to hold her in my arms, and how do I begin to reach out and beg for her forgiveness, if only West could somehow take me back, I'd protect her from harm, the asylum has fed again tonight, the world is a safer place, the Bat is blind, but in my mind, I can only see her face
11.
Empty Nest 02:40
(Dick Grayson)-The signal lights up just a fraction of this damned city, but it still triggers these bones to shake this outcasts body, the demon that made me (made me) cut all ties case unworthy, but Bruce can't stop these wings from avenging our home, nested home, our home, nested home, give the past away, start looking to the light, (Jason Todd)- through the crimson view I compensate, what could of, should of then been done, after it all you still let him live, with me, you let him have his fun, (Tim Drake) -we've got a job to do tonight, protect Gotham, it doesn't matter bout our plight, we're not the victim, even if we fall, the fact that we fought meant it all, don't digest the page, we're not men, we're made, we're made to throw away, the nightmares drive me to Arkham day and night, day and night
12.
I could give a shit who owns this holy land that you both claim, and that you hold on to this broken ideology and family name, as you're lacing up your boots know that this day could be your last, tell me was it fucking worth it, your pride mirroring a toxic past, don't live up to these stains, no one wants the apocalypse, step back from this parade, if you're there, you're a part of it, I hope that the last thing you see when the dust clears is your children grasping for breath, you made up your mind when you choked out all reason and passionately followed death, to occupy illegally, isn't that what's called an act of war, the needles and pins agree, we've been sitting on this way too long, we all will have apologizes when the evil finally shows his face, and life changing realities, like the fact the we're just one race, don't live up to these stains, no one wants the apocalypse, step back from this parade, if you're there, you're a part of it, no winners here, just pain and tears, bless helping hearts that make barricades, it's all our fight, bright day, black night, no win in sight......but we might

The Island 01:51
Watch the sand, fall from this shaking hand, my stomach turns, broken on desolate land, a bow, I'll have to learn how to fight, and your voice, well it could shatter the night, well I know that I can't walk on water, but I'll find a way off of this rock, it was you that splintered this arrow, the path is all I got, i can see what now my life should be, I have changed, so now will Star City, but there's good in only just but a few, and he's gone, the man you thought you once knew, well I know that I can't walk on water, but I'll find a way off of this rock, it was you that splintered this arrow, the path is all I got, the path is all I got, the path is all I got

about

The Corps Vancouver, British Columbia

As darkness slithered unnoticed into 2814 posing as music, few were aware of the ever dimming light. But there were four souls who saw through the lies. The gods they had served for years, still on the battlefield, will someday relent with pride and pass down the torch. These four will charge their rings and make a stand 'til the deaf hear the light. ... more
