"I Would Do Anything" as written by and Mike A./dutkiewicz D'antonio....
The words die in my throat
And there is nothing I can do
From a child to a monster
And now a child among monsters
Your life is a mockery, twisted in the wind
Is this your legacy, born of ignorance

I'll give my heart and soul to see you free again
I would do anything

So many mistakes have led to this disaster
Ten years of reflection, don't waste a moment
Are you loathe to seek the truth
You must choose

I'll give my heart and soul to see you free again
I would do anything
If you could see the hope I've always seen in you
I would do anything

The weight that's crushing can be relieved
Leave the sins of the past at your feet
Pray for life or bleed to death
Pray for life or bleed to death

I'll bleed the reddest blood to see you live again
I would do anything
If you could see the hope I've always seen in you
I would do anything

    General CommentWanted to get these lyrics up here as this is potentially my favorite track off the new album!

    Please feel free to correct my lyrics as I know there are 2 or 3 lines I think are wrong.

    Enjoy!

    General CommentI think this may be my favorite track off the new album as well. I am really diggin the new tunes.

    The other track that could either be a close second or tied is "A Light In A Darkened World".

    General CommentThe lyrics look correct, except for line 4, after "from a child to a monster" (which is as much as I've gotten as well). I've been replaying that part of the song over and over and I just can't seem to pick up what Howard says.

    General CommentI think it could be about a loved one experiencing something (alcohol, drugs, traumatic, mental ilness etc.) that the singer can't help with but wish desperately he could take that pain away.
