The Great Divide lyrics

Post your transcribed The Great Divide lyrics in this thread. I've only transcribed Broken so far. This is my out come:

Quote: (Originally Posted by Scott Stapp - Broken) Why are we overcome with fear?
What if I told you that fear isn't real?
Why are we overcome within?
What if I told you, my friends, your doubt
You could live without?

There is a question I want to understand
Why can't everyone tell the truth
And learn to love again?

Do you know what it feels like to be broken and used?
Scared and confused...
Do you know what it feels like to be broken and used?
Scared and confused...

Yes I know...
One more question and I know time is dead...

Is what the world speaks of love really real?
The answer's not of this world, but very clear
Look upon to find love and you found eternal light/life (?)
Street caught up ??? you've heard before
Friendly advice just gets thrown out the door

There is a question I want to understand
Why can't everyone tell the truth
And learn to love again?

Do you know what it feels like to be broken and used?
Scared and confused...
Do you know what it feels like to be broken and used?
Scared and confused...

Yes I know
Yes I know
Yes I know
Yes I know know what it feels like to be broken and used?
Scared and confused...
Yes I know...

Do you know what it feels like to be broken and used?
Scared and confused...
Yes I know what it feels like to be broken and used?
Scared and confused...

I'm broken
I'm broken
I'm broken
I'm broken

Hey, Lith, I think I figured out what he is saying in that one part of Broken. This is based off my memory of listening to it last night, so bear with me.

"Street-corner preachers you've heard before"

I believe that is right, but I could be wrong. It took me a couple of listens to get that part.

As for the rest of the album lyrics, like I mentioned in the other thread, I plan on trying to transcribe some today. I think I can get most of the lyrics pretty accurately. There were only a couple of songs with a line or two that was hard to understand, but I should be able to get it with a few listens.

Okay, here's the first track. I believe this is almost 100% accurate.

Quote: (Originally Posted by Scott Stapp - "Reach Out" Lyrics) V1:
Welcome friends
I have nothing to hide
The journey's end
Has left a mark inside
I'm sure you've heard the rumors, jealousies and all
The lies

Pre-chorus:
I do not fear you
Do you fear me?
Love again!

Chorus:
I reach out
Can't give in
Learn to listen to that voice within my soul
I reach out
Can't give in
Learn to listen to it

V2:
No victims
These choices were all mine
Looking within
These scars will heal with time
There's no excuse for weakness, selfishness
Or compromise

Pre-chorus

Chorus

I reach out!

*solo*

I reach out!
Can't give in x2

Bridge:
I give in
Can we start again?
I finally hear his reason
I wish there was no fault
I'll never be alone again
Screaming at the walls

I reach out! x4

Chorus x2

Learn to listen to
Learn to listen to
Learn to listen to that voice within my soul

Here's "Fight Song"!

Quote: (Originally Posted by Scott Stapp - "Fight Song" lyrics) V1
Sometimes it starts with a silent curse
Sometimes it doesn't waste time
You still think I look upon this with hatred
In my mind
I won't lie
It took some time

Pre-chorus
But I know one thing
It took me away from
All the things love gave me
So I have to let things go

I can go another round
Despite you

Chorus
I'm still healing
No I'm not real and
Yes I'm feeling
This is my fight song

V2
Now I'm left with a scar to reverse
Yes another burden to fight
I guess I made it this far
So I know things will be alright
I won't lie
I will survive

Pre-Chorus

Chorus

Bridge
It's so hard to forgive
But I must let go
And begin to
Live again
And not give in
I've figured out
I will land on solid ground x3
I will go another round

Pre-chorus

Chorus x2

This is my fight song

Is this directed at Mark?

Coz if it is, that's nice from Stapp. It's like he's apologizing.

Hard Way Lyrics

Anything wrong here?

Quote: (Originally Posted by Hard Way by Scott Stapp) So let me tell a story friend
Of diamond hands and one night stands
I guess the good life paid you once or twice

Just when I thought I had it all
Caught a sucker pucnh and lost it all
Just never thought it would have come from you

So here I stand alone again
With one eye open I'm a broken man
Life flashed before my eyes but I'm alive

Chorus
I found out the hard way
And your day's coming soon
I found out the hard way
I pray you make it through

So what am I supposed to do
When all I've got is God and you
I guess I'll trust the one I can't see

As I sit here on this park bench
Knowing what you are thinking
I wonder how you close your eyes to sleep

So here I stand alone again
Talking to my faceless friend
At least when we got words, they're eye to eye

Chorus x2

I'm just a simple man
[make it through]

Chorus x3

The hard way

i think this is directly about/to mark and flip and the break up of creed.

Let Me Go lyrics. One line I couldn't make out.

Quote: (Originally Posted by Let Me Go by Scott Stapp) Tell me friend is this forgiving
Tell me friend are you believing
Tell me friend is it worth the fight

Chorus
So please
Let me go
So please
Let me go

Let me go

What's the use of our deceiving
What's the use so start retreating
We are lost and all our hope is gone

Chorus x2

Let me go

Once a boy I was forgiven
Now a man I'm [?]
Always know our memories will live on
Will live on [x4]

Chorus x3

Let me go

Justify - Scott Stapp

i think this is pretty close... a few parts are sketchy haha...

Quote: (Originally Posted by Justify - Scott Stapp) I met a man in New Orleans, wore a half suit with dark blue jeans
Kicked his heels together, winked at me real nice
I saw him from a mile away but in my state of mind I let him make his plea
"Hey boy, have you seen the other side?"
Yea, in this man I saw the devils hands so I looked at him man to man,
Said this time it's gonna be a fight

I do not have to justify the way I live my life
I do not have to justify the reason Iím alive
No more
No more

I saw her from across the room
With diamond eyes she's heavens jewel
Dropped 2 aces, smiled and threw my cards back
Yeah I've been that man that lives deceit*
Surrounds himself with worldly things.
So let me tell you a story let me feed it to you

We fly around like we were superman
Living another trance*, a different way to dance
With dark romance you get another chance
To do the dirty dance without consequence

I do not have to justify the way I live my life
I do not have to justify the reason Iím alive
I do not have to justify the way I live my life

So let me change the timber of the section, add a little booze to ice
I guess you probably noticed Iíve been living a double life.

So fly around like you were superman
Giving another chance, a different way to dance
With true romance you get another chance
To tell your dirty darkest secrets.

We fly around like we were superman
Living another trance*, a different way to dance
With dark romance you get another chance
To do the dirty dance without consequence

I do not have to justify, the way I live my life
I do not have to justify the reason Iím alive
No more, no more, no more, no more
Itís just not me, not me, not me
Iím just, Iím just like you.

*Edited - fixed with titan9's corrections - see post #18

Quote: Sublime

I will follow you
Through heaven and earth and time
Will you be there for me
When I reach the end of the line

So can you guarantee
For all eternity
Sublime
Sublime

If we just carry on
We will find a way
If it's not destiny
You and me just be sublime
Be sublime

Will you follow me
A shoulder's sometimes nice
I will be there for you
When safety net feels right

So give your hands to me
When you need anything
Sublime
Sublime

If we just carry on
We will find a way
And it's not destiny
You and me just need sublime
Be sublime
Be sublime
Be sublime

Hush now darling
Don't you cry
Every little thing's gonna be alright
Hush little child don't say a word
Trying to sing a song about heaven on earth

Sublime
Sublime
Sublime
Sublime

If we just carry on
We will find a way
If it's not destiny
Can you and me just be sublime
Be sublime

If it's not destiny
Can you and me just be sublime
Be sublime
Be sublime
Be sublime

So can you guarantee
For all eternity
Sublime
Sublime

Quote: You Will Soar

If I had just one thing ots ay
Before my last breath fades away
Keep your head way up in the clouds
And never let them get you down
Never let them get you down

Keep hoping and dreaming
And you will soar
With a little faith and love
You will soar

If I had just two words to say
To explain my life away
I could say "Ups and downs"
'Cause they always kept my defense down
Always kept my defense down

Keep hoping and dreaming
And you will soar
With a little faith and love
You will soar
You will soar

I wish I could take you away
To a place of mystery
We will travel earth on sands of time
To listen to fairy tales
We will listen to fairy tales
We will listen, listen, listen
Listen, listen, listen

Keep hoping and dreaming
And you will soar
With a little faith and love
You will soar

Keep hoping and dreaming
And you will soar
With a little faith and love
You will soar
You will soar
You will soar
You will soar
