Ashes
Juliet's Happy Dagger is noah mclaughlin and lalabrookie

Your love...

The ashes of my dreams scatter about me now
In the shadows I found you
When I feel lost you surround me now
Yeah you see me through anew
Through unbroken darkness I felt your gentle hand
Leading me to life and warmth again

Your love... I can run but it finds me
Your love... meets me at the door, it seems
Your love... washes over
As we dance among the ashes of my dreams

The ashes of my dreams are far away
Healed and broken by the wind
Bittersweet memories fade to gray
As your moonlight pulls me in
Through uncharted waters to the blessed sight of land
Leading me to light and warmth again

Your love... I can run but it finds me
Your love... meets me at the door, it seems
Your love... washes over
As we dance among the ashes of my dreams

Ashes
By Ross Durand

When ashes are all that remain of the fire that burned so bright
When embers have turned to coals and the end of the cold, dark night
When echoes are ll that we hear, of the songs that our voicese sang
You say things will still be the same when ashes are all that remain

Well the flames burned bright in the forest night
And your eyes seemed to flicker in time
And it warmed us both, like the words that you spoke
When you sid that you'd always be mine

When ashes are all that remain of the fire that burned so bright
When embers have turned to coals and the end of the cold, dark night
When echoes are ll that we hear, of the songs that our voicese sang
You say things will still be the same when ashes are all that remain

But the forest sky that shone down on you and I
Seemed to flicker as the flames died down
Until all that was left
Were starlit shadows on the ground

But the sunrise came and took you away
And I still don't know where you are till this day

And ashes are all that remain of the fire that burned so bright
The embers have turned to coals and the end of the cold, dark night
And echoes are ll that we hear, of the songs that our voicese sang
You said things would never change but ashes are all that remain

by me and Swampjaw, from FAWMStock 2011 in beautiful Emlenton, Pennsylvania.

No ten year old oppressor can keep us down
He's the scourge he's the butcher of Pallet Town
From region to region, til none free remain
Enslaving all with poke ball and chain

We're gonna rise up
We're gonna rise up
To a glorious future where we're no longer Ash's

From the Orange Islands to the Lavender Town
Where the ghosts of the fallen can still be found
Sing a song of Soul Silver, tell a tale Heart Gold
We're 650 species that will not be sold

We're gonna rise up
We're gonna rise up
To a glorious future where we're no longer Ash's

We remember freedom, we remember walking tall
Eating poke berries on the plain
Before the arenas and the white and crimson ball
But we can taste that freedom once again

We're gonna rise up
We're gonna rise up
Til we no longer cower from the master's lashes
We're gonna rise up
We're gonna rise up
To a glorious future where we're no longer Ash's

In case my song ever surfaces, here are the lyrics...

Ashes
by Naked Philosophy


We wanted to put you in your favorite place
But remembered how you hated the rain
So we keep the box close to our hearts
And forget about the pain

The days go rolling on
And the time it surely passes
But when we needed a friend
All we had were ashes

We wanted to take you to the park
For one last walk in the sun
But life just gets in the way
And it's never gotten done

The days go rolling on
And the time it surely passes
But when we needed a friend
All we had were ashes

My best friend, your best friend
Our best friend
My best friend, your best friend
Everybody's best friend

The days go rolling on
And the time it surely passes
But when we needed a friend
All we had were ashes

Ashes
By DuToVa

I’ve got ashes on my feet
Walking through the fire
To get with you so we can speak.

Why do you make it so damn hard
To talk about the things
That are in both of our hearts.

Why do you make me want to
Why do you make me want to
Why do you make me want to scream
I’m done with you again?

I’ve walked through volcanoes and the snow
I only tell you so you would know
What I’ve been through to be with you.

Right now so we can talk
About what I don’t know
But I’m tired of all the yarn.

You are driving me to
You are driving me to be a crazy man.

Ashes
By The Midnight Society
---

Float into the sky
On the wings of the wind
Carry me home
Won't say where I've been

We'll rise like flames
And fall like ashes

Sink into the sea
Drift away with the tide
Carry me home
To the place in my mind

We'll rise like flames
And fall like ashes

Sleep on the shore
Rest your head on the sand
Carry me home,
My heart in your hands

We'll rise like flames
And fall like ashes

Ashes
By Synfonyc

The fire spread so fast
there was no escape
The way things were going
it could only end this way

And all I have left are the ashes
Ashes of what we to be
And all I have left are the ashes
Ashes of what we used to have

The heat was so intense
and the light was so bright
I couldn’t even notice
that things were going right

Now all I have left are the ashes
Ashes of what we used to be
Now all I have left are the ashes
Ashes of what I used to have

When all was said and done
and the smoke had finally cleared
The one that I wanted became
the one thing that I feared
But the lesson wont be forgotten
and the memories will last
Because there burned it to my brain
and I'll always have the ash

All that I need are the ashes
Ashes of what we used to be
All that I need are the ashes
Ashes of what we used to have

Ashes - Paco del Stinko

A land of grey, all in one shade
Coughing blood with every breath
There is no sun, warm weather done
Every moment facing death

My mother gave her life for me
So I could live and I could flee
Another day that my eyes see
She died to give so I could be

Walking - Down the road

We walk alone, we have no home
And only two bullets between us
Heading south, down to the mouth
There's no-one you can trust
Bringin' the stink since 2006.

Ashes

By Steve Durand

There that old glass ashtray sits
Reminding me how it began
She undulated into view
A cigarette in her gloved hand

A wisp of smoke escaped her lips
And formed a halo 'round her head
A femme fatale with lethal hips
And this is what she said

"Mister, won't you help me please
'Cause I don't know which way to turn"
And when she gave my arm a squeeze
I passed the point of no return

I fell like a ton of bricks
For that sultry, sly brunette
To callously get flicked away
Like ashes from her cigarette

She told me she was new in town
And was the victim of a crime
A gang of hoodlums shook her down
And didn't leave her one thin dime

A lovely damsel in distress
And I could be her shining knight
All she wanted was some cash
And I was happy to oblige

Since I wanted to believe
I bought into her tale of woe
But it turns out she was the thief
She stole my heart and all my dough

She disappeared without a trace
And it's a loss that I regret
And now all that I have left
Is ashes from her cigarette

Viktor Walters' lyrics. Not all of it made it in, but I decided to post what I got anyway.

I'm living in the ashes of a former life
And I gotta admit, it feels pretty nice
I set alight when I was just fifteen
It was the prettiest blaze you'd ever seen

I got tired of seeking my silhouette
And I got worn out by always being upset
I mean- hey
When you've got a fire crackling inside
Why not burn yourself down
burn yourself down to nothing

But the ashes drift and stick to the walls
I don't know why it's calming but I know where it's coming from
Burn yourself down,
burn yourself down to nothing

I mean- hey! Take a dash of poverty and pride
Throw it in with almost having died
Hey, I never really went to college
Cause I really thought I had the knowledge

But what good is framerate stats
when I dunno how to do my tax
And self hate seems like a silly thing
but damn is it mo-ti-vat-ing

Hey, so I left home months ago
Threw away my job and plans, so
I'm riding on the tip of a lighter flame
And I don't give a damn when I'll be back again

Unchained my shackles from my legs
Changed my haircut amongst other things
Change in my pock my only means to breath
chain of events my only excuse for me

I'm starting new, I'm starting up a brand new life
So what if this is just another swan dive
I've got my hands, I've got what makes up me
Timber, tinder, I'm finally fucking free
I mean- hey!
I've got no more burns or scars to see,
but I've been burnt down,
Burnt all the way down to nothing

For we all come from dust
something greater
Even if it all goes bust
something greater
Soon you will see
something greater
Ash is all that's left in me
Build the ashes up
Build the ashes up to something

East Coast Coin Company

Pardon me to interject but my name is Billy Friend
And I always come correct like I have a teacher's pen
In my pants I've never been to France
But I like to do a dance
Anywhere that's in the nebula
I try to stay ahead of ya
For bringing up the rear is something I can't adhere to
If you're feeling queer you should take a rest my dear two
3 4 5 and 7 I go up to 11
I hope I go to heaven I have a friend named Bevan
I'm singing on the track I hope it is not whack
I hope that it will get some of the ladies on their backs
I respect my backpack because it can carry more that I can carry
That's not a paradox it's just a fact

Ashes to ashes and back to dust
And before I go fool believe I'ma bust
Ashes to ashes and back to dust
And before I go fool believe I'ma bust

Then I came back like a Roderick Strong attack
And they didn't see me coming I was skeezing with the rats
In the street, in the city, in the cypher
And I was burying MCs like their name is Stuart Diver
I command and conquer, you challenge me
And you will see that I'm hard like Contra
I'm sick with it, vocab, equipped with it
You can either get the dick sticked in
or tits tickled
I'm sadistic I make an autistic mother fucker a statistic
Dunk 'em like a biscuit
Look, I'm the best that ever did it on this site
I'm not even braggadocios I just blatantly lie

Ashes to ashes and back to dust
And before I go fool believe I'ma bust
Ashes to ashes and back to dust
And before I go fool believe I'ma bust

Like Jim Henson directed The Dark Crystal
He shot that shit and I shoot the pistol
At the muppets who are testing me I'm OG
You're the goblin king gobbling nuts on your chin
I know that's not from Dark Crystal it's from Labyrinth
I'm fucked up here I've had three pints of absinthe
And absence makes my heart grow fonder
Like Bridget Fonda makes my penis grow longer
Yo, you want that hippa to the hoppa
You can't stop the rock I break you off something proper
The show stopper, run and tell your poppa
Pop n lockers step to me I'll fucking drop ya

Ashes to ashes and back to dust
And before I go fool believe I'ma bust
Ashes to ashes and back to dust
And before I go fool believe I'ma bust

You miss me? Fool, don't dis me
I'm shifty, I'm shiesty, you probably wouldn't like me
yo I put the knife in, then I put the shank in
And you couldn't see me coming even if you saw me wanking
Your rhymes are ill but I'm on a different page as
My rhymes are contagious no doctor can save yas
When I burn an MC like the clap
Then I come back like a maniac I murder the track

Ashes to ashes and back to dust
And before I go fool believe I'ma bust
Ashes to ashes and back to dust
And before I go fool believe I'ma bust

Meat Loaf would do anything for love not me though
I rewind and bring it back again like Tivo
