Track Name: Her
no one can break these ties
defiance is my name, your closest guardian
i will always watch over you
i want you to know that, with confidence as my guide
along with each and every time i see your face.

you are becoming the eternal momento of what it's like to feel alive
and for the first time i have conquered the threshold of emotion,
i wont lose anymore sleep
i wont lose anymore sleep

no more will you question our integrity
no more will you question our ability
to show you up
to show you up

no one can break these ties
defiance is my name, your closest guardian
i will always watch over you
i want you to know that, with confidence as my guide
along with each and every time i see your face.

we've been buying your love to poison our hearts
you were the cure, you were the cure
how did you do it? was it something you said?
or was it the way you looked at me?
but choking on my disbelief you were the cure,
you were the cure

ive been grounded, and i realize that even if you are
the death of me, i will accept submission as long as i
die in your arms
Track Name: Winds Of Shadows
the mirrored image of what no one wanted to be,
in the wake of your shadows everyone felt like that had lost a part of themselves
it was all or nothing in the killing fields
you must stand -- stand forever, stand alone
you'll never find out the unknown
well you won't find me out here for nothing

sweeping the morale from right out under us
this place wreaks of death and it's only getting worse

stand forever, stand alone -- you'll never find out the unknown
well you won't find me out here for nothing

if we die it'll be for glory not for gold
Track Name: The World You Hoped For
millions of faces laid to ruin
over the sight of tragedy, losing their own, losing each other
this is it, it's among us -- hell's on earth
we've seen materialistic deconstruction
we've seen hearts callous and die
you determine what you are, what you are

will you fold under the weight?
we've seen hearts callous and die, callous and die
you determine what you are

do you really think you can make a difference with your mouth sewn shut and your eyes glued to the machine? (for once just listen)
this is where we separate the men from all the cowards --
do you really think you can make a difference now?

we've been given the gift of creation, therefore this is what we are
therefore this is what we are

it's time to fear --
this is your problem, never selling the vice --
you never see what's real,
don't play the spoilers role,
stop parading the sidelines

do you really think you can make a difference with your mouth sewn shut and your eyes glued to the machine? (for once just listen)
this is where we seperate the men from all the cowards --
do you really think you can make a difference now?

for once just listen,
we've seen enough
Track Name: Against Me
you probably don't know what i'm saying
you never do
my throat is ailing and blood is filling my exit wounds

I am right in front you (here I am only one man)
but it's taking a hold on all of us
As it's despairing victims lash out
for someone to sing back
(sing back their praises)
to a voice they barely understand

go ahead and doubt me
soon enough ill be carrying you out by your throat
I am right in front of you still fighting
canceling my proverbial opportunity of ever speaking to you again

i'm right in front of you
and you're right in front of me
still fighting
well I'll never speak to you again
yeah we're screaming for the voice we're killing
but at least we can say we made the victims victimless
and the untouchables
wishing they had the courtesy of being a little more heartless
they're drowning our unsung hero's
they're drowning us all
Track Name: Truth In Divinity
they said it would be the years of our lives -- it was impending truth
the pressure that pushed us out to shore, glorified monotonous
we all jumped ship, we all jumped ship

these were the years of our lives

well, well look what we have here it's all of you and you look so scared --
i won't let this go

let me dream my life away -- at least i'm going somewhere
oh my god, i won't let this go

you won't get the best of us because you haven't seen it yet

i was never hopeless but i didn't know i'd have someone like you by my side -- you brought out the best in me and for that i will never forget

they said it would be the years of our lives -- it was the impending truth
the pressure that pushed us out to shore, we all jumped ship

we can't be stopped
you can't get the best of us because you haven't found it yet
you haven't found anything
(i was never hopeless but i didn't know i'd have someone like you by my side)
we are the boundless beating the eternal
we were slaves to our youth
and now we can't be stopped

these were the years of our lives
the years of our lives

let me dream my life away, at least i'm going somewhere
when dreaming is all we have, and i feel like i'm going somewhere
i'm dreaming my life away

i was never hopeless but i didn't know i'd have someone like you by my side -- you brought out the best in me and for that i will never forget
Track Name: Symphony Of Fate
this is my prayer in hopes for a lesson learned before it's an afterthought,
what if everything you loved just up and left (was gone) -- oh no, you don't know because it's all in front of you
what would you do if your future, everything you worked for, was gone? the locus of perception, gone.

what would you do if everything that has driven you was gone?

i'll be sleeping with one eye open,
with the loaded pistol embraced
ready to deny the moment innocence was conceived

what would you do if your future, everything you worked for, was gone? the locus of perception, gone.
what if everything you loved just up and left -- oh no, you don't know because it's all in front of you. the locus of perception, gone.

what would you do if everything that has driven was gone?
your future -- your family, everything you've worked for was gone
locus of perception, everything was gone.

i've been able to bury the hatchet, now i'm ready to bury you --
on my docket it will be written

ill have my revenge -- the relentless symphony of fate

what if everything you loved just up and left -- oh no, you don't know because it's all in front of you. the locus of perception, gone.
what if everything you had just up and left -- oh no, you don't know because it's all in front of you. the locus of perception, gone.
Track Name: Dream
you'll never know these things i want to tell you
because they are captured
in this cold dark tiny room
where i'll stay forever without you

i'm going insane living here
in this hole of a place
so fill my head with fairy tales and far away lands
all those things that you like
well i swear that i'll dream of you tonight

there's all these things that run through my brain
day by day
week by week
year by year
I want
I have
I need to tell you
some day i will
the pain is sharp inside my chest
but blood won't flow until i tell you what you need to know

so fill my head with fairy tales and far away lands
all those things that you like
i swear that i'll dream of you tonight
Track Name: Ability
it has been my downfall, i havent been able to conjure a word that fits you perfectly, because of this i'm dislocated at the starting line

i believe it doesn't get much better than this,
we've worked so hard to be where we are today
this kind could've not been seen if it wasn't for us
this is what i've craved for so long

one mind at a time this is determination this is eternal sunrise, ive already got you figured out
i never came to a moment like this where i never felt so ready to bury your questions, deceiving one mind at a time

dreaming the impossible
obtaining the invisible
it has been my downfall

i haven't been able to conjure a word
i haven't been able to conjue a word, that fits you perfectly

you better get out of my way
you better get out of my way
or you'll be taking your last breath

one mind at a time -- this is determination, this is eternal sunrise,
ive already got you figured out
i never came to a moment like this where i never felt so ready to bury your questions, deceiving one mind at a time

deceiving one mind at a time
Track Name: Colors
hold the line, it's a disappearing act in the making
they're crying for separation

feast your eyes on what you never were,
on what you never were
but here we're drawing in the shadows, filling in the colors as we go on
i swear (i swear) it's always meant something to me

the colors define what we've overcome

looking at the tidal waves ahead, just let it consume us
we've been barely breathing this whole time
surviving (surviving) the under toe isn't our only problem
it's when we realize the things we've already done will
never come back to haunt us

but here we're drawing in the shadows, filling in the colors as we go on
i swear (i swear) it's always meant something to me
i swear you've always meant something to me

let's forget the past and build a future, it's ours for the taking

i was wrong from the beginning, it was all in front of us as we struggled to stay alive -- this is ours

feast your eyes on what you never were
on what you never were
but here we're drawing in the shadows, filling in the colors as we go on
i swear (i swear) it's always meant something to me
Track Name: Atrophy and Betrayal
all bloodshed, no valiance
intoxicating the best of the worst
there's no time to sit and think about none
of my questions being answered

all i can do is stand back and let the world fall to pieces
fall to pieces
i am sick of watching them turn their backs

build me up, tear me down, and i cannot describe this feeling that is coming over me
build me up, tear me down, and i can see your eyes are tearing -- how sad can this be?

burning every inch of my solitude,
this time it's war (this time it's war)
this will be my last requiem, this will be my last attempt
in trying to impress you

soon i'll be getting the thanks i deserve if it's the last thing i do

build me up, tear me down, and i cannot describe this feeling that is coming over me
build me up, tear me down, and i can see your eyes are tearing -- how sad can this be?

you'll remember me, you'll remember us
you'll be begging me for mercy the next time we cross paths
Track Name: Letting Go
again i feel like i am way over my head
you never say the words i wanted to hear
the words are never there
i'm selling this ode for a perfect year
no more falling short of what we wish to become
i'm ready to take the role of the tragic hero
NO MORE FALLING SHORT OF WHAT WE WISH TO BECOME

i'm ready to take the role of the tragic hero
i'm ready to take this role

please just sense the way my soul feels tonight, so go follow it

to bring you from the ashes into the light
i should be in the drivers seat but you're always throwing me in the passenger's side, in the passenger's side

i want all of you, and i'll wait until the day i have it
i want all of you, and i'll wait
i want all of you, until the day i have it

never meeting my gaze, lying completely apprehensive
sense the way my soul feels tonight
just let it go
just let it go

please just let it go, my soul feels tonight (so follow it)
please just sense the way my soul feels tonight (so go follow it)
Track Name: The Everlasting
she escaped with my heart, i'm looking around corners
down empty corridors

all this excitement has got me worried, where will i end up next?
could this be forever or just another wall with nothing to say?

but while we're both here -- may i have this dance?
for now we'll float on hopeless romance
carrying on moment after moment seeing nothing better

she escaped with my heart, i'm looking around corners
down empty corridors
nor compelled to see the worst that could become of us

but while we're both here -- may i have this dance?
for now we'll float on hopeless romance
carrying on moment after moment seeing nothing better

only the here, the now, the forever
only the here, the now, the forever
this is forever...

the dream i made a reality.
Track Name: Moon
here i am
there she is
this is us
drifting through life
floating down this river
living this night
quiet for the others

let the moon play with your eyes
let the river flow
crash into sunlight
you can't describe the water
let it be the feeling of forever

the moon ripples in the water
feel it on your skin
this atmosphere becomes your best friend
you won't need anyone
if you feel unhappiness
then stay right here forever
I know you're alone
but i am in the water
i am the moon
i am with you

its not like before
its not like it used to be
stay right here forever
and be happy
