Track Name: Bronson
When everything you have just ends
And you can't find a way to see,
That all of these ends are the start
Of what your life is meant to be.
Hold fast and someday you will see,
You'll be just fine.

Show me a sign.
Throw me a line.
Don't be so blind.
You're alive. Alive.

Someday, you'll see,
Your hope, fading faster.
Hold tight, chin up.
It's time to dodge disaster.
Fighting doubts you thought you had vanquished,
But you're still fighting.
Don't you feel alive?

Show me a sign.
Throw me a line.
Don't be so blind.
You're alive. Alive.

Show me a sign,
Don't just leave me stranded.
I'll hang on some more if you show me a sign.
We've still got time,
Don't just leave me stranded.
I've still got some strength if you show me the light.

Never thought that this would change me.
But I believe, I believe it now.
Never though that this would change me,
But I believe it now.
Never thought that this would change change me,
But I believe, I believe it now.
And even as my strength is fading,
I believe it now.
Track Name: They Live
For all the things you won't become.
For all the things you've left undone,
To reach your early ending.
For all the hope you tore apart.
For all the times you had no heart,
To stop, your early ending...

Now I can't keep my peace.
When they're staring back at me,
No, they cannot stop from fleeing now,
And we know,
They only exist to twist, and break us down.
They only exist to twist, and to break us down.

Hoping to find the answer to the hole in your chest.
Maybe you'll find the reason for your loneliness.
What will it take to make you happy?
And would you even car?
What will it take to make you happy?
Why should we even care?
Track Name: RocknRolla
I find that the freedom of the road,
It served me best.
And I've come to find that I,
Can hit the ground running,
So climb high and strive,
For the road that serves you best.

Always reaching for something out of sight.

And even with these things you try to break me,
But I'm still holding it up.
For how long I don't know.
And you so selfishly say,
That you can change me.
And so you helplessly break,
All the bonds that chained me.

I find that the freedom of the road,
It served me best.
And I've come to find that I,
Can hit the ground running,
So climb high and strive,
For the road that serves you best.

Always reaching for something out of sight.
Always reaching for something I can't find.

We wear these expectations on our shoulders,
But we won't show it.
No, we'll never show it.

And I know we're fool hearty at best.
But how could you expect anything less?
(I'm always reaching for something I can't find)

I find that the freedom of the road,
It served me best.
And I've come to find that I,
Can hit the ground running,
So climb high and strive,
For the road that serves you best.

Always reaching for something out of sight.
Always reaching for something I can't,

That I can't find.
Track Name: Sleepers
You say;
These words,
They should come out do naturally
Seeing as you've have all this time
To sharpen, and rehearse these lines.
These lines.

Between the lies and hope for happy endings,
I think it's time we stop pretending,
That it can't go wrong.
It can all go wrong.
It's in the way we handle all the let downs.
Keep jumping in, and try not to drown,
In these dreadful odds.
These stack up odds, we have here.

So how long until we can get out of here?
How long will we live in fear,
Of holding on so hopefully,
To the things we feel but we can't see?
Or live in fear of hope.

You say;
These thoughts,
You should hold them so hopelessly,
Knowing that when you talk about it,
Most people think you've just gone mad.
Gone mad.
But I say, it's time we start believing in something,
Bigger, deeper, and more rewarding,
Than only looking out for yourself.
Looking out for yourself.

So how long until we can get out of here?
How long will we live in fear,
Of holding on so hopefully,
To the things we feel but we can't see?
Or live in fear of hope.

Oh I, I believe in something
So much bigger than the world
We all live in
So I'll keep holding on
To the words that I've written
Prove us wrong they said,
So I am.

Holding on so hopefully
To the things we feel but we can see,
Or hold, or hope to know the difference.
And how long will be live in fear?
Of holding on so hopefully,
To the things we feel but we can't see?
Or live in fear of hope.
Track Name: Wanderlust
All your words,
And memories,
I've been holding on, so desperately.
While all these roads,
And melodies,
We keep riding on, so recklessly.

And I realize that I can't blame you,
For giving up some days.

It's what I hope to find,
For yours, and mine.
I know we can't lose sight,
Let's get this right.
I know you'll try,
To get me high.

All your words,
And memories,
I've been holding on, so desperately,
While all these roads,
And melodies,
We keep riding on, so recklessly.

And I realize that I can't blame you,
For giving up some days.

It's what I hope to find,
For yours and mine.

Look what we've left behind.
All signs of a normal life.
We still have ties that bind.
Look what we've left behind.

And I realize that I can't blame you.

All your words,
And memories,
I've been holding on, so desperately,
While all these roads,
And melodies,
We keep riding on, so recklessly.
Track Name: Dog Day Afternoon
I can't seem to keep you off my mind,
And it's the first time,
In a long time.
That I stop to think,
On what I'll miss,
If I don't follow through with you right now.

You set me up to fall,
Mislead me.
Fill my head with doubt,
I don't know how,
It got this way but I know,
It's coming back around.
Cast me aside,
Just like your pride.
And tell me why you still,
Hide behind those pictures?

I know I'm one to talk,
But if you just give up,
Then this was all for nothing.
We still have something here.

It feels like I woke up four years later,
And I'm the only one whose changed.
All of those who've love and lost,
Maybe I just stayed the same.
And if I hold my breathe,
Maybe if I walked away,
We could sing this song at the top of our lungs,
And it would be ok.

You tell me,
Nothings gonna be the same,
When I'm away.
Things won't change,
It's always gonna be this way.
Don't tell me,
Nothings gonna be the same,
When I'm away.
Things won't change,
I'm always gonna be this way.
Track Name: High Fidelity
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me through your walls and all of your self destruction?

You and I, we're right back where we started years ago
And just like then, I'm talking to a wall

At this point, I'm rehearsing all the lines
That I've been using on you to defend this all the time
My life, and what I hope to find

Can you hear me ?
Can you hear me through your walls and of your self destruction?
Can you hear me?
Can you just get near me?
So I know for once that you're really listening

I, I'm taking my time
No, I'm not slowing down
Just making sure it's right
Doing the best that I can

You and I, we're right back where we started years ago
And just like then, I'm talking to a wall
About life, and what I hope to find

Can you hear me?
Can you hear me through these walls and all your preconceived notions?

Don't let me knock you off your throne
You've got it so together
Your life, and what you hope to find

Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?

Can you hear me?
Can you hear me through your walls and all of your self destruction?
Can you hear me?
Can you just get near me?
So I know for once that you're really listening
Track Name: Equilibrium
Quit saying that you can't do better.
We know you can.
We'll hold out or all fall together.
Let's try again.

He said;
Don't think I'm not consumed by it.
I had a plan but now I'll never fit.
These dreams and aspirations,
Use to make them all so proud,
Now their half a world away,
But I can't ever wear a frown.
I'll try and hold inside the things,
That show a weaker man,
Deep down.

Quit saying that you can't do better.
We know you can.
We'll hold out or all fall together.
Let's try again.

He said;
It's fair to say that I'm a pessimist.
It's the way in which these fears,
They seem to stick.
All these honest faces,
Seem to give such clouded views.
I've been forming my opinion,
Out of someone else's views.

Hanging on to all their words,
It keeps you blinded and closed minded.

Quit saying that you can't do better.
We know you can.
We'll hold out or all fall together.
Let's try again.

Hanging on to all their words,
It keeps you blinded and closed minded.
Track Name: The Terminal
Who's to say you're to far away,
To say goodbye in your own words.
I just want you to take your time.
You left to find your own way,
But after 7 days,
I'll have to say,
That you'll end up hating this.

Metaphors are only just words.

Can't you see what you've done to me?
I'm far too gone,
I'm losing sleep.
I've abandoned all thoughts
On this belief.
You left me here at the terminal,
With my heart in my hands,
Without any plans of coming back.

All I want is to say,
That I know that I,
Have made mistakes.
I know that I can change.
And I won't lie, to you again,
I hope you find yourself in the end.
No, you're not coming back.

Metaphors,
Are only just words.

Can't you see what you've done to me?
I'm far too gone,
I'm losing sleep.
I've abandoned all thoughts
On this belief.
You left me here at the terminal,
With my heart in my hands,
Without any plans of coming back.
Track Name: Waiting
Tonight, I feel like it's almost over.
I've been stuck behind,
All these thoughts that plague the back of my mind.
Being left behind...
Tonight, I feel like I'm gaining back
Control of my life,
The one that's been slaving through all of these vices.

You keep me hanging on.
Even though I know it's wrong.

Keep tearing down all of my own ambition.
I'm stuck behind these fake views of this life.
Leading me blink and completely stuck in my addictions,
How could I have been so blind?

You keep me hanging on.
Even when I know it's wrong.
You keep saying that you want to feel alive,
But now, you know what I've learned,
From all these empty moments,
Is that life never stops,
And we're being left behind.

Tonight I know it's finally over.
No longer stuck behind,
All these cruel thoughts in my mind.

What I could do with just a few more moments where,
I'm not battling myself.
What I would do with just a few
more moments where
I'm not battling myself.

You keep me hanging on.
Even though I know it's wrong.

I can't seem to,
put a date on when I,
Started losing touch but now,
It seems I've regained my grip.

You keep me hanging on.
Even when I know it's wrong.
You keep saying that you want to feel alive,
But now, you know what I've learned,
From all these empty moments,
Is that life never stops,
And we're being left behind.
