"Avalanche" as written by and Soraya Lamilla....
Get me out, (now) get me out (now)

Preacher, preacher what you got for me save my soul
See beneath, and clip my wings I'm not an angel
I try and try to be good, I bought my pride, I'm a crook
Turn the lights down, burning up the night now

Sign my life out, I'm sick of living in a shell
If you can help choir boy ring the church bells
I'd turn back if I could, erase the pain if I could
But I'm an animal and I don't know if I can

Hey!!!
Cause I'm the prodigal man of this avalanche
I'm going down, I'm going down, down

Hey!!!
And if you turn me in
I'll confess my sins
I'm going down, I'm going down, down

Before I'm six feet deep
I'm washing my hands clean
Just get me out of this avalanche

You scared the junk out of me man
The ghost rider, hold my soul tighter
Jehovah take the ropes I'm a
Fly a plane out of the atmosphere
I've attacked this fear
This scar's still here
I'm going on to the end
I'm holding on to a friend
I'm going I'm going
I don't care
I cursed a lot
The worst, the black sheep of the lot
Christopher scott, prepare to meet god

Hey!!!
Cause I'm the prodigal man of this avalanche
I'm going down, I'm going down, down

Hey!!!
'Cause I'm the prodigal man of this avalanche
I'm going down, I'm going down, down

Hey!!!
And if you turn me in
I'll confess my sins
I'm going down, I'm going down, down

Before I'm six feet deep
I'm washing my hands clean
Just get me out of this avalanche

Get me out, now
Get me out, now
Just get me out of this avalanche
Get me out, now
Get me out, now
Just get me out of this'
Verse iii
You guided me when I was
Blind with pride a right off
Knocked me off my saddle
Sabotaged and overshadowed
Watched you chase a man down
Watched you raise a man out
Mercy on me, forever I'm free

Hey!!!
Cause I'm the prodigal man of this avalanche
I'm going down, I'm going down, down

Hey!!!
Cause I'm the prodigal man of this avalanche
I'm going down, I'm going down, down

Hey!!!
And if you turn me in
I'll confess my sins
I'm going down, I'm going down, down

Before I'm six feet deep
I'm washing my hands clean
Just get me out of this avalanche

Get me out, now
Get me out, now
Just get me out of this avalanche
Get me out, now
Get me out, now
Just get me out of this'

    Lyric CorrectionJust some lyrics corrections. The fifth verse is "Sign my life out, I'm sick of living in a shell. The Canadian release says "like hell" instead. Also, "You scared the junk out of me man". There is no "crap", and it was also "hell" in the Canadian release.
    Great song, love the beat and it's a cool story.
