Track Name: Who You Are
Sometimes I hope things will get better
then everything all around me unravels
Sometimes I wonder how far I have traveled in time.

Then I look into the mirror
These lines, designs, I no longer recognize.
I hope I never have to face the one in my head.

Who you are is a mystery.
Track Name: Waiting
Your life has turned into a reality show,
and all these phonies have replaced the people you know.
I'm not playing your games.
It drives everyone insane.

I know you're waiting for the right time to let me know,
Everything always happens for a reason, I just never know.

Your life is going down a lonely road.
You've alienated all the people you know.
We're not playing your games.
It drives everyone insane.

I know you're waiting for the right time to let me know.
Everything always happens for a reason, I just never know.

Why'd you let me go.

Everything happens for a reason,
I just can't ever figure it out.
Everyone's searching for a meaning,
meanwhile everyone's filled with doubt.

I know you're waiting for the right time to let me know.
Everything always happens for a reason, I just never know.

Why'd you let me go.
Track Name: Empty
Faded images light up the night
catching glimpses of a distant light
I feel the radiant vision of a hopeful child buried in

time.

I know it's hard to see past the pollution
and it feels like there's no solution
but there's gotta be a better way, a better way.

When there's nothing left in your heart,
just take me back to the start,
I don't want to feel empty,
I want to see through the eyes of a child.

When we used to look up to the stars,
we could lie around talking for hours,
then everything I had to say melted away.

I know it's hard to see past the delusion
and it feels like it was an illusion
but there's got to be a better escape, a better escape.

When there's nothing left in your heart,
just take me back to the start,
I don't want to feel empty,
I want to see through the eyes of a child.
Track Name: Need To See
When my eyes worked better,
the sky seemed so bold.
The horizon never held a worrisome bode.
Now I am broken down. Now all I see are clouds.

I need to see you, I need to see you in everything.

When my heart worked better,
I never felt cold.
You and I together, never ever got old.
Now we are broken down. Now all I see are clouds.

I need to see you. I need to see you in everything.
Track Name: We Fight
Have you noticed everything is strange?
like we're coming to the final age?
Everyday feels more and more like a dream,
as we go to war for every little thing!

We Fight! For the things we have.
We Fight! For the things we need.
We Fight! For the ones we love.
We Fight! For the way things are supposed to be.

Have you noticed everything is odd?
Everything we've built has fallen apart.
Every wall around us is busting at the seams,
As the people pour out into all the streets.

We Fight! For the things we have.
We Fight! For the things we need.
We Fight! For the ones we love.
We Fight! For the way things are supposed to be.

Have you noticed everybody's gone?
All the war and greed have finally won.
Everything we tried to change has stayed the same.
As we let the world drive us all insane.

We Fight! For the things we have.
We Fight! For the things we need.
We Fight! For the ones we love.
We Fight! For the way things are supposed to be.
Track Name: Separate
You and I were once the same,
then we went our separate ways.
I haven't looked by in some time,
cause every time I do, I cry.

You and I were once the same,
played guitar and video games.
You haven't called in quite awhile.
You moved on and so have I.

You and I were once the same,
then we went our separate ways.
Track Name: Liar
You could ruin my day with any thing you say.
You could ruin my world with any single word.
You could break my heart, taking me apart.
Put me back together, I don't want to be here forever.
Punished by what you've done.

You could change my mind if you took the time.
You could change the world with any single word.
Fool me with your act, then I take you back.
Put me back together, I don't want to be here forever.
Punished for what's been done.

Liar, I'm your girl.
Liar, change my world.
Liar, break my heart.
Liar, take me apart.
Track Name: So Far So Good
Careful what you wish for,
it just might come true,
then come back to haunt you.
Everyone is asking,
no one ever gives,
that's why no one's going to live through this.

You and I are falling down, So far so good.
Society is broken now, So far so good.

Everyone's reacting,
no one's thought it through,
now there's nothing we can do.

Things were so distracting,
kept us from the truth,
everything we love is being consumed.

You and I are falling down, So far so good.
Society is broken now, So far so good.
Track Name: We Lie
Don't you worry bout any little thing.
The worlds gone crazy now, held up by little strings.
Everyone runs their mouth and no one does a thing.
Things keep working out in ways we never dreamed.

We lie and we make mistakes.
We try and we're saved by grace.

Time keeps passing by, everybody age.
Things that used to slide, fill you up with rage.
Cost is way too high and no one's left change.
But don't you worry bout any little thing.

We lie and we make mistakes.
We try and we're saved by grace.
Track Name: Open Our Eyes
If the world was ending, I could say goodbye.
Everyone's pretending living out a lie.
Everything you're sending doesn't get replies.
But if the world was ending, at least we tried.
But we fell down.

Let's open our eyes.
