WISHMASTER LYRICS

We’re playing this song live on the “This World Is Ours Tour”, I figured I’d post the lyrics so you guys could start learning the words early!  This song is about all of our brothers and sisters fighting overseas so that people like us can pursue our dreams and play music all over the world.  Thank you for what you do.  

WISHMASTER

We’re here to fight.

We’re here to die.

We’re here to save your life.

What do we say, when our backs are up against the wall?

The empire remains, and it will always.

We’ve come from all over the world.

We are the ones who stand as one. (Side by side)

If any man here fear their demise, then we’ve already lost.

We’re here to save the world.

And above all else, we’ll hunt the ones

who seek to destroy it.

You’re not alone, can’t be defeated.

We’ll protect you, when all others fail.

Tell me now, what would you give up?

My family, friends for a brotherhood.

Who stands to gain if we survive?

You probably weren’t born just to give your life.

Welcome to my life.

If you make it through today,

You might survive.

And above all else, we’ll hunt the ones

who seek to destroy it.

You’re not alone, can’t be defeated.

We’ll protect you, when all others fail.

I can’t believe the cost of what is right.

Reach for the light.

Know that we are here, we’ll always survive.

If you come ill prepared to die,

You’ve already lost.

If you come here and you give up.

You’ve already lost.

Lost the fight.

You might survive.

You might survive.

Welcome to my life.

You might survive.

You might survive.

And above all else, we’ll hunt the ones

who seek to destroy it.

You’re not alone in the world, we’re the night’s eyes.

We’ll protect you, when all others fail.

I can’t believe the cost of what is right.

Reach for the light.

Know that we’re here and we’ll always survive.

You might survive.

You might survive.

Welcome to my life.

You might survive.

You might survive.

Sickest thing ever, thanks to whoever made this!

ABSOLUTE PUNKS MOST ANTICIPATED OF 2012

"Why We’re Anticipating: The Word Alive is one of the few bright up and comers in the metal scene and they are aiming to rise to the top with LP2. Lead man Telle Smith has been focusing over the past year on improving his already smooth vocal delivery, striving to be the best in the genre. What can we expect musically? Well, expect a ton of cool shit. Not only will LP2 display some more atmosphere and melody into their songs, but the riffing has been beefed up along with the intensity, as The Word Alive won’t be satisfied until you’re head banging the entire length of their next set."

I’m already proud of what we’ve written, and it’s just in the pre-production stages.  Can’t wait to get this record recorded with Joey Sturgis and get it out for your ears to enjoy!

There will be more of this in 2012 :)

SUBJECTS OF TWA’S NEW ALBUM

Hey guys, just wanted to shoot you guys an update on some of the topics I’ve chosen to write about on this next album.  I think most of them will be pretty relatable, since that is one of my main goals as a vocalist, is to connect an idea, a thought or feeling to the music the guys are playing.  

So far I feel very connected with the music and it’s inspired me to write about a lot of things, as have just the changes the band and myself have endured throughout the time between Deceiver’s release and now.  I hope that when it’s all said and done, you guys will really appreciate the lyrical content on this album, since that is what is most important to me.

I’ll be talking about the death of my late grandfather, his impact on my life then and now.  I’ll be talking about those of you who fight for us in other countries, being away from all your families, and how honored I am to be a part of what helps keep your spirits high while over there.  Another topic is about what it is TRULY like to be on the road, touring in all sorts of countries, and the toll it can take on not just myself, but the people I love back home.  I’ve saved some anger/disappointment from the Deceiver album time frame to fill the void for those of you needing an angry song to relate to and let loose to, so don’t worry.  Although, this is the happiest I’ve ever been in my entire life so writing about things that are dark, is a little tricky this time around.  I think it’s bettered me as a writer though and pushed me to look deeper into myself, and my past.  I’ve written a song already and you guys have seen the lyrics.  That song is really about stepping out from underneath someones shadow who thinks they are better than you, and that you don’t deserve to reach your full potential and basically completely disregarding that and living your life the best you can while you can.  

There will be hope, there will be loss, there will be happiness, pain, anger and bitterness in this record.  Everything I’ve felt throughout my life, will be poured into this album.  I hope you’re ready, I know I am :)

-Telle

TWA NEW ALBUM LYRICS

Hey guys,  

First I want to thank ALL of #TeamTWA for all you have done for TWA the past 3+ years.  I really am proud that so many of you not only jam our music, come to shows, and throw down, but above all…  LISTEN to the lyrics I write and apply them to your life in some way.

This is one of the 1st songs I wrote lyrics to for the new album (which we are recording with Joey Sturgis starting February 7th).  It’s for the 5th song that was written for the new album, and 1 of around 20 or so that we’ve written total.  These are not the FINAL lyrics per say, but mostly they are and the overall idea of the song will not change.

I’ll leave the meaning up to you guys…  For now ;)

Note:  This is exactly how I have it written on my computer.  I structure out the song, label each part, and then write to it.  Hope you enjoy!

"Intro

I’m right here, I don’t hide.  I have no sense of time.

I’ll be who I am and I will, I will live (I’m alive).

Chorus

If you think I’ll break because you think I’m the same.

(I won’t live a lie, I won’t live a lie)

You can’t keep me this way I will escape.

(I won’t live a lie, I won’t live a lie)

Fear will never conquer me, it will guide my way.

I welcome this day. (Welcome me this way)

It will never overcome me.

Verse 1

Finally you begin to see, I was built to be more.

Never will I settle for your worth.

You can’t trust what you know, this is just the beginning.

Bridge

I’m right here.  You can’t deter me.

I’m right here.  You won’t escape me.

I’m right here.  

You’ll never find your way out.

This is me 2x

Chorus

 If you think I’ll break because you think I’m the same

(I won’t live a lie, I won’t live a lie)

You can’t keep me this way I will escape.

(I won’t live a lie, I won’t live a lie)

Fear will never conquer me, it will guide my way.

I welcome this day. (Welcome me this way)

It will never overcome me.

Soft Break

So many times, I’ve laid by the wayside.

While I let them tear at me.

It’s my time to believe.

Bridge

If you think I’ll break because you think I’m the same.

Chorus

 If you think I’ll break because you think I’m the same

(I won’t live a lie, I won’t live a lie)

You can’t keep me this way I will escape.

(I won’t live a lie, I won’t live a lie)

Fear will never conquer me, it will guide my way.

I welcome this day. (Welcome me this way)

It will never overcome me.

Outro

I won’t let anything come before me.

This is who I am. I’m alive.”
