​​4.  'Til I Believe


We are diseased

We are deranged

The ones who will bleed

Are so far from guilty

When did this fight

Become so one sided

The wrong from the right

Becomes less divided


So I will reach for something more

Let my fear my sorrow go

Return life to all I know

’Til I believe

In love


Those who retreat

Are caught in the silence

Upon those who feed

Are empty inside

(They’re all empty inside)

Look at the trees

Breathe in the sky

They are what become

Of you and I, I, I, I


So I will reach for something more

(Something more)

Let my fear my sorrow go

Return life to all I know

(All I know)

’Til I believe

In love

5.  Making Friends

With Failure


​I heard they caught a ride

To the desert dreaming of a river flowin'

But the barren land was dry

It was only days 'til they got moving on

He told his kids and wife

They could live in paradise upon the shore

But it was all a lie

They were swallowed up left on the ocean floor


So why

Do the best intentions

Turn, turn, turn the devil blue

Cause I'm making friends with failure

Wondering if it all comes true


She threw her life away

But was it worth more than love and opportunity

(Oh no no no)

Her humble family

Was torn apart by the very one who bears her name

Her years of accolade

Were not enough to return them to her lonely grave

Now she disintegrates

Into a sea of human flesh and waves of clay


So why

Do the best intentions

Turn, turn, turn the devil blue

Cause I'm making friends with failure

Wondering if it all comes true


Oh why

Do the best intentions

Turn, turn, turn the devil blue

Cause I'm making friends with failure

Wondering if it all comes true (x2)


I met the strangest man

He said to take what you have learned and go with chance

Now here we are again

It's no mistake that failure makes me who I am

Failure makes me who I am


But why

Do the best intentions

Turn, turn, turn the devil blue (devil blue)

Cause I'm making friends with failure

Wondering if it all comes true


Oh why

Do the best intentions

Turn, turn, turn the devil blue

Cause I'm making friends with failure

Wondering if it all comes true (x2)

3.  White Lights


Bitter 'til the bitter end

Have we been diving down the shallow end of life? (Life)

Heaven sent oblivion

When it's all said and done we're all lost in time (Why try?)

Searching for the family that you never ever had

Was it ever so bad? (Oh no)

Dreaming of a better me

Without you all I can do is just wish and wait for the

Tide to rise and take you away

As you wander off you parade through the rain

The melody I wrote the glass will be stained

And by morning light you are the one to illuminate me


Nothing weighs me down

Nothing in the air that I have found

The snow is so serene

Warmth of the tidings that you bring

You've never felt so cold
You long for a hand to hold so

Close your eyes and drive yourself
Beyond these white lights


Now I'm bitter in the falling rain

As the pain pain pain of our memories reflect upon the ground

Our better days are silhouettes in the rear view mirror

Heaven sent oblivion my heart will burn burn burn

And if I cry out loud would you hear me?

Even though the seasons change

You're left here wishing waiting for the

Tide to rise and take me away

As I wander off nothing left to say but replay

The melody I wrote the glass will be stained

And by candlelight I am the one to illuminate you


Nothing weighs me down

Nothing in the air that I have found

The snow is so serene

Warmth of the tidings that you bring

You've never felt so cold

You long for a hand to hold so

Close your eyes and drive yourself

Beyond these white lights [x3]


For every day you've lost I would

Would replace

And every soul you've touched I would

Would embrace

But until then...


Nothing weighs me down

Nothing in the air that I have found

The snow is so serene

Warmth of the tidings that you bring

You've never felt so cold

You long for a hand to hold so

Close your eyes and drive yourself
Beyond these white lights

6.  Desire For Truth


Can I read you

Can I feed you

Desire for truth?


You can pack it in a bottle

You can drink it real slow

Now you’re feeling kinda dumb

But no one’s gonna know

You could wrap it in a package

You could top it with a bow

You could take it to the heart

But I guess you’ll never go


If I need you

Will you sing to

Desire for truth?

2.  Illusions


We’ve got a lot to be thankful for

But then again where did we go wrong down the road?

I kinda don’t feel like myself anymore

Locked up in a regret box and I can’t find the code

So you’ve got a reason to be looking for fortune in gold?

But happy people ain’t got nothing at all


I think I’m losing decisions I make

Oh I’m still alive but it’s not enough

(No it’s not enough)

‘Cause these illusions are making me fake

Now left with no conclusion except I believe

They got the best of me


Selling off my pride at every turn

Losing more with every lesson I learn

All the bridges we built and the love we felt have been burned

My heart is like a fire

The flames are climbing higher

I try to control my anger

Before my friends become my strangers

Assess the cost of every loss but still I’m empty handed

Stick to the plan until I understand why


I think I’m losing decisions I make

Oh I’m still alive but it’s not enough

(No it’s not enough)

‘Cause these illusions are making me fake

Now left with no conclusion except I believe

They got the best of me

 End To The Suffering


The darkness comes
The darkness goes
But I can't control the way the wind blows
I crush my soul with the weight of the world
Whatever it takes to be a hero
Now everybody hates everybody mistakes me
I'm afraid I may be going insane
'Cause there's no peace no dignity
When you can't unsee what I see
When you can't unfeel what I feel
When you can't undream what I dream

So let's be real
Let's be free
No one's gotta live like you and me
Let's be loved
And let's believe
This could be the end to the suffering
'Cause I can't breathe
And I can't sleep
Living in a world so full of greed
So take my lead
And you will see
This could be the end to the suffering

When dark prevails
My hope unfolds
I'll follow the light wherever it goes
I left my home
I burned my clothes
They told me that I would be a hero
Now people on the street they don't ever mistake me
The way people with the money often do
'Cause there's no peace no dignity
When you can't unsee what we see
When you can't unfeel what we feel
When you can't undream what we dream

And though I hang on every word you say
I'm not afraid to wade through the shame
Closer to the end with every day
A new beginning will come my way
And though I fall in every game you play
I'm not afraid to fight through the pain
Closer to the end with every day
A new beginning will come my way

9.  The Mercy Blade


Fall not the mercy blade

For the beast in iron chain

Where the edge runs dull

The arrows pierce her heart in a million ways

All dark and all to grey

Hear the echoes of their screams

Ever far you go

You always know the pain they can’t escape


I hear them all


The angels turn away

The angels turn away

And all is calm again


I hear them all

7.  Let Go


You follow every footstep I take

But I keep on shutting the door in your face

I wallow in storybook fantasies

Like Satan spreading a deadly disease


My stomach aching for a remedy

You keep it hidden tormenting me

This melodrama’s stretching me so thin

I wonder if you’ll ever give in

‘Cause hate is a sin


You think you know me

But I’m about to do something you didn’t foresee

You say there’s a problem

It’s time to show you exactly what that is


Let go

It’s about to feel much different now

I’ve got a new fallback

On the right side of my life

A bright light is gonna cast your spell away


You think you know me

You think you know me

This is your problem


My stomach aching for a remedy (remedy)

You keep it hidden tormenting me (tormenting me)

This melodrama’s stretching me so thin (so thin)

My hate is finally kicking in


Let go

It’s about to feel much different now

I’ve got a new fallback

On the right side of my life

A bright light is gonna cast your spell away


Whoa

And you’re so far away

(Gotta let go, gotta let go)

Whoa

Yeah you’re so far away

(Gotta let go, gotta let go)

Whoa

And you’re so far away

(Gotta let go, gotta let go)

Whoa

Yeah you’re so far away

(Gotta let go, gotta let go)

​​8.  What I'm Living For


We’ve forgotten the feeling so easily

Caught up in the cracks

I don’t offer my reasons ‘cause honestly

The truth never lasts


But I believe

That someday we

Will fall off of the edge of the world as

We leave behind

All of our petty lies

And all the nights that I’ve cried


Have I given up or am I gonna

Live it up and give another

Twenty six in the gutter

I know what I’m living for

When you’re feeling low you take cover

Just let my love take over

They say they want some more but

I know what I’m living for

Whoa (x3)

I know what I’m living for


The night passes so eager and peacefully

I’m lost in a trance

While everyone is breeding

And hungry for answers and one night stands


But I believe

That someday we

Will fall off of the edge of the world as

We leave behind

All of our petty lies

And all the nights that I’ve cried


Have I given up or am I gonna

Live it up and give another

Twenty six in the gutter

I know what I’m living for

When you’re feeling low you take cover

Just let my love take over

They say they want some more but

I know what I’m living for

Whoa (x3)

I know what I’m living for


Remember the rolling sunrise

The fog slipping off my breath

Were you alone when I said

It’s alright, it’s alright?

Remember the burning inside

Your head laid upon my chest

We were kids but so much

More than, more than this

So much more than this

Whoa


Have I given up or am I gonna

Live it up and give another

Twenty six in the gutter

I know what I’m living for

When you’re feeling low you take cover

Just let my love take over

They say they want some more but

I know what I’m living for


You (x3)

I know what I’m living for

You (x3)

I know what I’m living for
