I come to you to tell the truths from those who’ve come before So listen well so you can tell the future that’s in store Apathy and jealousy will shake you to the core Don’t sit and seethe, you must believe you’ll rise to be much more Don’t suffer in silence Stand in defiance From all the souls we’ve lost All the love we’ve gained The bridges that we’ve crossed Will never be the same Every day the games they play will keep you from the course Society is puppetry to make you feel remorse Don’t believe the lies they breathe, keep walking straight ahead You hold the key to set you free: stop living like you’re dead Don’t suffer in silence / Escape the tyrants From all the souls we’ve lost (All the souls we’ve lost) All the love we’ve gained (All the love we’ve gained) The bridges that we’ve crossed (Bridges that we’ve crossed) Will never be the same (Never be the same) We’ll never be the same Do you feel like you’re lost? / Press on at all costs / When you feel like you’re lost / Hold on at all costs Don’t let the fear take the wheel / Take back control – Go on and steer Life is more than keeping score and cutting to the bone The light inside trumps all your pride in everything you own Don’t sell your dreams to cold regimes just to make a dime It’s killing me that you don’t see we’re running out of time From all the souls we’ve lost (All the souls we’ve lost) All the love we’ve gained (All the love we’ve gained) The bridges that we’ve crossed (Bridges that we’ve crossed) Can never be the same (Never be the same)

Out of the night we rise / Into the starry, twilit sky / Beacons of hope in our eyes / Leave you mesmerized Angels, demons, or something between / We are all but foreign to your ways You can love us, hate us, ignore us completely / But still, we stay We children of darkness play / Out of the sun that soaks the day / Different and living our way / With no hell to pay Set apart in star-crossed virtue / Everyday we walk among you Angels, demons, or something between / We are all but foreign to your ways You can love us, hate us, ignore us completely / But still, we stay / Until the night calls us away Still we stay / Until the night calls us away Angels, demons, or something between / We are all but foreign to your ways You can love us, hate us, ignore us completely / But still, we stay Angels, demons, or something between / We are all but foreign to your ways You can love us, hate us, ignore us completely / But still, we stay / Until the night calls us away Still we stay / Until the night calls us away

Hostile words and actions tear you down Piss you off and kick you to the ground When all you want to do is get away You lock yourself in chains that make you stay Today It’s not the end / So let us begin to mend / The piles of broken pieces Ignore all the souls / Exerting control / ‘Cause only YOU control your destiny Know that you’re strong/ Know you belong / They’re wrong – It’s only over when you let it be So make that call / And leave it all behind / No better time than now When you’ve had enough and want to bail And everything around you says you’ve failed The masters failed more times than you have tried So get back up, your dreams are not denied Abide It’s not the end / So let us begin to mend / The piles of broken pieces Ignore all the souls / Exerting control / ‘Cause only YOU control your destiny Know that you’re strong/ Know you belong / They’re wrong – It’s only over when you let it be So make that call / And leave it all behind / No better time than now No better time than now You tore a hole in who I am You barely even gave a damn You cut me off and left me here for dead If it didn’t mean a thing to you Why’d you have to crush all my dreams too? It haunts me… Oh, it haunts me… You left me here for dead But it’s not the end / So let us begin to mend / The piles of broken pieces Ignore all the souls / Exerting control / ‘Cause only YOU control your destiny Know that you’re strong/ Know you belong / They’re wrong – It’s only over when you let it be So make that call / And leave it all behind / No better time than now Than Now / Than Now Than Now

about

Venus Invictus Charlotte, North Carolina

CHARLOTTE, N.C. A spaceship landed in an Uptown park, blaring guitar-driven hard rock as it descended. Its pilots stepped out of the spacecraft into a world unknown, with a quest to transform Earth into a place where dramatic performances and avant-garde music and lyrics rule the land. ... more
