hes sooo sexy!!!



You my friend
You're a lot like them
But I caught your lie
And you know I did
Now I'm lost in you
Like I always do
And I'd die to win
'Cause I'm born to lose

Could you shine your light
Now I know your ways
'cause they're just like mine
Now I'm justified
As I fall in line
And it's hard to try
When you're open wide

Take my hand
We'll be off and then
We'll come back again
To a different land
Now I like this way
You can go away
If you guess the name
You cannot replace


Bring me your enemies
Lay them before me
And walk away


Fuck you firefly
Have you lost your light
Now I hate your ways
'cause they're just like mine
So you lost my friend
Such a sorry end
And I don't know why
So I choke and smile

Without You

Without You

Search for the answers I knew all along
I lost myself, we all fall down
Never the wiser of what I've become
Alone I stand, a broken man

All I have is one last chance
I won't turn my back on you
Take my hand, drag me down
If you fall then I will too
And I can't save what's left of you

Sing something new, I have nothing left
I can't face the dark without you
There's nothing left to lose, the fight never ends
I can't face the dark without you

Swallow me under and pull me apart
I understand there's nothing left
Pain so familiar and close to the heart
No more, no less, I won't forget

Come back down, save yourselfI can't find my way to you
And I can't bear to face the truth

Sing something new, I have nothing left
I can't face the dark without you
There's nothing left to lose, the fight never ends
I can't face the dark without you

I wanted to forgive
I'm trying to forgive
Don't leave me here again
I'm with you forever, the end

Sing something new, I have nothing left
I can't face the dark without you
There's nothing left to lose, the fight never ends
I can't face the dark without you

Holding the hand that holds me down
I forgive you, forget you, the end
Holding the hand that holds me down
I forgive you, forget you, the end
love the movie surrogates? well guess what Breaking Benjamin's song I Will Not Bow was in it and guess what i have the link to watch anytime!
