David Ankers Aaron is such an authentic writer; you can feel the truth dripping through the melodies. Poor use of dripping I admit... Love Ways to Make You Stay. Works equally well as a rock song, or pop song with a catchy groove. Aaron is a great songwriter and performer and I'm looking forward to more of his shizzle. Favorite track: Ways to make you stay.

Battles 04:11
Battles: Thank god it's over Fearful from this dream Frozen with fever Pinched skin confirms it's real But i'm ok x2 Why we fail to run away, i'll never know But we still try Cannot fight what isn't real, not with these hands Not with this mind The battles inside you Found light in shadows Replaced my broken parts Fell out of favour Turning to sabotage But i'm ok x2 Why we fail to run away, i'll never know But we still try Cannot fight what isn't real, not with these hands Not with this mind The battle's inside you I don't want to sleep If I will see your face again Forced to close my eyes Let me out of this dream x2

Repeat 04:34
Well i've never known a calm like this, and I know you still don't care The chains you used to hold them down have rusted in this air Try to raise themselves up to their knees, strength out from despair Hopeful lights will lead the way, out from this demons lair. Repeat yourself and your words will lose their value given time So keep them close We have nothing left to say But we'll sing this anyway Anyway! x2 As they stare out from a cold abyss, something stirs outside They've come too far to turn around, or run away and hide Weapons formed from this new strength is all they really need Silently they lead the charge against this devils seed Repeat yourself and your words will lose their value given time So keep them close There is nothing left to say But these words keep falling out And while we know you're not listening We will sing this anyway Anyway! x4 We have nothing left to say But we'll sing this anyway

Up till this point we've been holding on, praying for a sign From this height, a fall like that would probably kill us all Balance has gone, logical thoughts become a distant memory One by one, our numbers start to fray as they lose their way they Scream and shout, they don't say For crying out loud, don't do this now I'm running out, of ways to make you stay Ways to make you stay Reasons to make you stay Ways to make you stay The fall begins, so we close our eyes out of blinding fear. Open your eyes, only then you'll see the ground is coming. Scream and shout, they don't say For crying out loud, don't do this now I'm running out, of ways to make you stay Ways to make you stay Reasons to make you stay Ways to make you stay Ways to make you stay (rep to end)

How could we let things get so bad Just take a look at what you've done Searching for truths they never had Through deceit and lies, I hope you burn I want you to show me how, how we can sort this out The duty of care you have needs to erase this doubt And as this is all your fault, you need to make this right Cause it's down to you, it's down to you. Celebrity killers fill our screens The lives of the victims on demand We've got to put this show on hold Some stories better left untold I want you to show me how, how we can sort this out The duty of care you have needs to erase this doubt And as this is all your fault, you need to make this right Cause it's down to you, it's down to you. Cause it's down to you, it's down to you. You've got a lot to answer for Cause you've got a lot to answer for You've got a lot to answer for Cause you've got a lot to answer for You've got a lot to answer for Cause you've got a lot to answer for You've got a lot to answer for Cause you've got a lot to answer for I want you to show me how, how we can sort this out The duty of care you have needs to erase this doubt And as this is all your fault, you need to make this right Cause it's down to you, it's down to you. Cause it's down to you, it's down to you. It's down to you
