Track Name: Guidance
They try to get to me¦Stab me where I can’t see¦Twisting the knife so deep in my soul¦But one thing you forget when you hurt me¦I only smell a victory¦Open up your eyes and ask if you are ready? ¦But you won’t bring me down¦Cause I can win this game¦Yeah when I feel the sinking, I fight to keep the screams in¦And as I lose the feeling, it’s hard to find a meaning¦But if I need your guidance I’ll take it¦I won’t ask for good luck, I’ll make it¦Inside you’ve run me down¦Heart drags along the ground¦This time I might concede I’m broken¦But then I get that rush that picks things up¦My armour’s weak but just enough¦To give it all I’ve got cause I can still defeat you¦But you won’t bring me down¦Cause I can win this game¦Yeah when I feel the sinking, I fight to keep the screams in¦And as I lose the feeling, it’s hard to find a meaning¦But if I need your guidance I’ll take it¦I won’t ask for good luck, I’ll make it¦But you won’t bring me down¦Cause I can win this game¦Yeah when I feel the sinking, I fight to keep the screams in¦And as I lose the feeling, it’s hard to find a meaning¦But if I need your guidance I’ll take it¦I won’t ask for good luck, I’ll make it
Track Name: Broken Nails & Bloody Fingers
Sleep, and dream of me¦Inside these walls, these walls we built¦I just need time, your time to borrow¦Let’s run today, to escape tomorrow¦You only wanted the world¦You only wanted the world¦Shy hope with heart still beating¦I find I’ve let it slip away, away¦Broken nails and bloody fingers¦Your voice inside me lingers today, for you I would stay¦Now, my dreams hold caution
Your love for my world, is now forgotten¦You only wanted the world¦You only wanted the world¦Shy hope with heart still beating¦I find I’ve let it slip away, away
Broken nails and bloody fingers¦Your voice inside me lingers today, for you I would stay¦Shy hope with heart still beating¦I find I’ve let it slip away, away¦Broken nails and bloody fingers
Your voice inside me lingers today, today¦Broken nails and bloody fingers¦Your voice inside me lingers today, for you I would stay
Track Name: The Uprising
Death, lies, and mass corruption¦That’s what you think you see¦Crush those who ask you questions
That’s not our policy¦Greed is the motivation¦That’s what you want to see
¦Ask those who suffer in silence¦Screw your democracy¦Can’t stop the revolution¦Listen to the kids scream out (our voices must be heard)¦This time they won’t back down (justice will be served)¦
So if you understand this, it’s time to join our hands as one¦Once please speak the truth¦All these eyes on...¦Turn round and mute your voices¦Your vivid mind’s at play¦Leave if you have a problem¦
We want you all to stay¦Truth rise up against this¦It’s all just in your head¦Scream from the rooftops right now¦Can’t scream if you are dead!¦Can’t stop the revolution¦ Listen to the kids scream out (our voices must be heard)¦This time they won’t back down (justice will be served)¦
So if you understand this, it’s time to join our hands as one¦Once please speak the truth¦All these eyes on...¦ Listen to the kids scream out (our voices must be heard)¦This time they won’t back down (justice will be served)¦So if you understand this, it’s time to join our hands as one¦Once please speak the truth¦All these eyes on you!
Track Name: Choices
Last chance, warning, time to get your shit together¦Patience, turning, maybe your mind’s fucked forever¦Take your lies and your scheming brain and put them somewhere I can’t reach¦All the best ones know when to quit, but talking to you is like pulling teeth¦Yeah c’mon¦When the gun is aimed at your head, do you think you’ll try again?¦Do you think your life is worth a chance?¦When you’re faced with life or death and no one’s there to help you out¦Do you think you think you might feel some regret?¦Next time, your words are gonna have some consequences¦Right now, your next step could be the one that pulls your lifeline¦Take your time to assess the need and tell me when you reach the end¦It’s the chance to extract the greed and walk away to make amends¦Yeah c’mon¦ When the gun is aimed at your head, do you think you’ll try again?¦Do you think your life is worth a chance?¦When you’re faced with life or death and no one’s there to help you out
Do you think you think you might feel some regret?¦ Yeah c’mon¦ When the gun is aimed at your head, do you think you’ll try again?¦Do you think your life is worth a chance?¦When you’re faced with life or death and no one’s there to help you out¦Do you think you think you might feel some regret?
Track Name: Rage You Know
Every breath is like a knife that cuts¦When the words come out they fade into the mist¦Before they have the chance to even reach the face of the people talking¦And they keep on talking¦Sounds implode before they leave your mouth¦And the weakness seeps out of your ragged skin¦No one hears you when your words are loud¦Can you live with this? Yeah can you live with this?¦Wrap yourself up in indignation¦The feeling won’t let you go¦Your best chance is isolation¦Escape from the rage you know¦All is lost when you don’t have the proof¦When they talk about you like you’re someone else¦They will try to break through all the masks they wear¦But there’s no use trying cause you’re stuck right there¦Wrap yourself up in indignation¦The feeling won’t let you go¦Your best chance is isolation¦Escape from the rage you know¦ Wrap yourself up in indignation¦The feeling won’t let you go¦ Wrap yourself up in indignation¦The feeling won’t let you go¦Your best chance is isolation¦Escape from the rage you know
Track Name: Break The Silence
We’ve taken all of this time to get this far¦Never saw the end game, now here we are¦So tell me now, should I be watching?¦Or was it all in your plans?¦Light my vision and make this right¦Cause I can’t fix this¦Yes I know that this could end it all but the words escape me¦Cause I can’t be somebody’s hero¦And if it ends today just tell the truth and break the silence¦Maybe you could be that hero¦So tell me now, should I be watching?¦Or was it all in your plans?¦Light my vision and make this right¦Cause I can’t fix this¦ Yes I know that this could end it all but the words escape me¦Cause I can’t be somebody’s hero¦And if it ends today just tell the truth and break the silence¦Maybe you could be that hero¦Light my vision and make this right¦Cause I can’t fix this¦ Yes I know that this could end it all but the words escape me¦Cause I can’t be somebody’s hero¦And if it ends today just tell the truth and break the silence¦Maybe you could be that hero
Track Name: Who's Your Jesus?
Pressure has burned my head now I can’t help but see these things¦Victims are all that’s left and I can’t wash away these sins¦Nice words just aint enough when I’ve hurt so many friends¦One chance it feels like I have the Devil’s soul to cleanse¦When it hurts it hurts me first¦When I try I make things worse¦Now my shame can’t be reversed¦I need saving¦So who’s your Jesus?¦When does he come? ¦Cause I need saving¦Cut myself too many times to run¦And show me reasons¦Don’t tell me lies¦Cause every second¦Part of me just slips into the sky¦Searching but all I see is more misery up ahead¦Confessions can’t wipe the slate of all the lives that have been shed¦I can’t explain the dreams I had that led me to this place¦God knows, but who is God can he look beyond my face?¦What you see I see it to¦It hurts me more than you¦I’ve tried all I can do¦I need saving¦So who’s your Jesus?¦When does he come?¦Cause I need saving¦Cut myself too many times to run¦And show me reasons¦Don’t tell me lies¦Cause every second¦part of me just slips into the sky
Show me how to find the truth¦Cause my mistakes have always punished you¦No I can’t change the things I’ve done¦But I just can’t face what I’ve become¦So who’s your Jesus?¦When does he come?
Cause I need saving¦Cut myself too many times to run¦And show me reasons¦Don’t tell me lies ¦Cause every second¦Part of me just slips into the sky
Track Name: Dead Behind The Eyes
Brainwashed and led here by a dream¦Straight here and nowhere in-between¦Mind-fucked now your eyes now eyes can’t see the truth¦I told you once, now here’s your fuckin’ proof¦Cause I’ve been watching you¦And it’s too late for you to choose¦Fight this now before it gets too late
Break the noose that’s about to seal your fate¦Cause they’ve been hunting you¦And it’s too late, I told the truth¦When the nightmare becomes real¦And they dictate how you feel¦And no one else will help you¦Just because they say it’s friends¦The nightmare never ends¦And I’ll just say I told you¦Take heed next time I talk to you¦Cause I just said what your conscience always knew
Push them off before you’re dead behind the eyes¦They’ll come again but they’ll all come in disguise¦Cause they’ve been hunting you¦And it’s too late, I told the truth¦When the nightmare becomes real¦And they dictate how you feel¦And no one else will help you¦Just because they say it’s friends¦The nightmare never ends¦And I’ll just say I told you¦Cause I’ve been watching you
And it’s too late for you to choose¦When the nightmare becomes real¦And they dictate how you feel¦And no one else will help you¦Just because they say it’s friends¦The nightmare never ends
And I’ll just say I told you
Track Name: We'll Bring You Down
You like the pain, you like the car crash¦You like to scream, you like to break glass¦You make a scene to feed your ego¦You made it once, that was your last throw¦No, well not this time – the world won’t listen you will find¦I see the end, we’ll bring you down¦You’re an atrocity¦It’s time to change what’s in your brain¦Brings out the worst in me¦Don’t wanna see your face again¦You’re an atrocity
The scars won’t heal unless you change¦You bring me down so low, and I don’t wanna talk no more¦You’re like a dream that’s never ending¦But suicide is not pretending¦You blurred the lines that existed¦You think you’re fine because you’re twisted¦No, not this time – the world won’t listen you will find¦ I see the end, we’ll bring you down¦You’re an atrocity¦It’s time to change what’s in your brain¦Brings out the worst in me¦Don’t wanna see your face again¦You’re an atrocity
The scars won’t heal unless you change¦You bring me down so low, and I don’t wanna talk no more¦I see the end, we’ll bring you down¦You’re an atrocity¦It’s time to change what’s in your brain¦Brings out the worst in me¦Don’t wanna see your face again¦You’re an atrocity
The scars won’t heal unless you change¦You bring me down so low, and I don’t wanna talk no more
Track Name: This Sinking Ship
Too many times I watched a chance set sail¦Shot down shot down, you left me frail¦But maybe this time I can free these reigns¦Shot down shot down, I’m back again¦It’s not the path that I had planned for my life¦The cards are dealt so I learn to survive¦Cause I will go down with this sinking ship¦And if I don’t drown maybe then I’ll quit¦But if the time has come I can say I stuck it out¦
No more, no more doubt¦Tunnel vision means I don’t see clear¦Shot down shot down, cause you play on my fears¦So when you call I just fall back in line¦Shot down shot down cause all is fine¦It’s not the path that I had planned for my life¦The cards are dealt so I learn to survive¦Cause I will go down with this sinking ship¦And if I don’t drown maybe then I’ll quit¦But if the time has come I can say I stuck it out¦No more, no more doubt¦Cause I will go down with this sinking ship¦And if I don’t drown maybe then I’ll quit¦But if the time has come I can say I stuck it out¦No more, no more doubt
Track Name: Save This
You just want an easy life so you push everyone away¦But I got myself tied in so I feel like I have to stay¦And your mind, has it’s own unique prerogative¦And your eyes seem to have that vision I can’t give¦You’re turning in to, what I tried not to¦And I can’t walk away now¦Count me in¦Don’t freeze me out¦Cause I’m just trying to save this mess now¦Count me in¦Don’t freeze me out¦
Save this¦I hear the same excuses every single time that I try¦But I’m never one to disagree with your lies¦Cause I’ve seen the way you look at me with those eyes¦Making it clear just where I stand¦ So I can’t leave this, when you’re asking me to¦Cause I don’t think we’re done here¦Count me in
Don’t freeze me out¦Cause I’m just trying to save this mess now¦Count me in¦Don’t freeze me out
Save this¦We’re turning in to, what I tried not to¦So let’s not walk away now¦Count me in¦Don’t freeze me out¦Cause I’m just trying to save this mess now¦Count me in¦Don’t freeze me out¦Save this
Track Name: Smiles Fade Behind
Place your hands¦Trust my words¦Gonna tell you things that open up this old curse¦All these lies
That stick with time¦They can make you feel that someday you will shine¦Prostitute your happiness to please the ones you love¦Play the role they want from you, it’s never quite enough¦Forget about the dreams you had, they’ll only leave you numb¦And learn to hide yourself¦Take your pill¦Cause this is life¦Never seek the truth it’s poisoned by the lies¦Walls are built¦To halt your mind¦Every time you cry, the smiles fade behind¦Prostitute your happiness to please the ones you love¦Play the role they want from you, it’s never quite enough¦Forget about the dreams you had, they’ll only leave you numb¦And learn to hide yourself¦ Prostitute your happiness to please the ones you love¦Play the role they want from you, it’s never quite enough¦Forget about the dreams you had, they’ll only leave you numb¦And learn to hide yourself¦Never seek the truth, it’s poisoned by all the lies they tell you¦Prostitute your happiness to please the ones you love¦Play the role they want from you, it’s never quite enough¦Forget about the dreams you had, they’ll only leave you numb¦
And learn to hide yourself
