Track Name: All Saints
Take these bitter pills. Swallow them down, what’s the thrill?
Lie, but you can’t change, a vicious cycle never ends.
What came before?
The fix you found to fill the void.
Now, you believe the friend you found will cure everything.

You tell me it’s alright; you say that you’re OK.
I did my best to help, but you walked away.

Alone, as night descends, wrestle with the fears you have.
Nothings changing!
Hide to escape, an absent life you couldn’t face.
Dwell on your mistakes, regret reminds you of those days gone by.

You tell me it’s alright; you say that you’re OK.
I did my best to help, but you walked away.

So filled with indecision’s, all roads are not the same.
Wrapped up in your addiction, can’t find a way.
We live with our demons, strung out on feelings.
So close to conceding, it unravels with no reason.

You can’t fake this will you?
You can’t find a way to.
All you’ve lost...
Track Name: Urgency Of Now
Where do you go when hope runs out?
How does it feel when you’re down and out?
Wounded we crawl on broken limbs.
Where do we turn to heal the pain?

Then you refuse it, so why should we try?
Changes, I’ve tried, I’ve tried but nothing seems to get through.

Just can’t find it, you say you’re lost in this world.
Can’t keep trying you say you’re lost in your words.

I won’t hide and I won’t run away.
Make the most of what I have, going to have to make mistakes.
Make the most of what I have in life. I won’t run away.

One more chance, we’ll make it better.
One more chance, to make amends.
Sometimes nothing changes, doesn’t mean we give up.
Have to stay on point can’t stop!
Track Name: Suburban Life Decay
Chase this feeling, till it’s gone.
We trade the things we love to keep holding on.
Alone is where you wish we wouldn’t be.
We try and escape it but those thoughts just reappear.

Why do we feed this sadness with our mistakes?
Forgiveness, can take away the (pain).

I don’t want you to know, I can’t explain.
The words rearrange inside my head.
I wouldn’t want you to know, I tried so hard to keep it all inside.
And I’ve tried, for forgiveness.
Now it’s all out there, where we are.

You can’t save this, without forgiveness.
You can’t change this, without forgiveness.
Track Name: Doubt Crusades
Struggling, just to find our way.
We never make any progress, were just barely treading every day.
Sometimes things all look the same, too late.
We can’t go back, to what, what we had.
We can’t go back to the way it was.

The futures unwritten, but you have control.
Don’t dwell on what’s past us you can’t get it back.

Can’t think, nothing’s going to ever change.
Don’t Waste your time on regrets.

You think no one hears you, we all feel afraid.
You’re stuck in the middle; we’ve all got to change.

Can’t think, nothing’s going to ever change.
Don’t Waste your time on regrets.

Nothing has to stay the same.
Somehow, someway!
We’ve got to find our place!
Track Name: Campaigns
Look behind, read between the lines.
All they want is you to feel afraid.
Prey on fears and ambiguity; you see it’s their way to keep control.

Why do we buy what they sell, do we chase our own tail?
Never see what we have within ourselves.
They can teach us to fault our own existence, there’s no reason but for their greed.
I won’t be like them, won’t think like them.

Run away, find some place to hide.
Forge the line with their blatant lies.
They pretend that it’s all just black and white; you know there’s so much they try to hide.

Why do we buy what they sell, do we chase our own tail?
Never see what we have within ourselves.
They can teach us to fault our own existence, there’s no reason but for their greed.
I won’t be like them, won’t think like them.

All they ever want was for you to feel afraid.
Can’t ignore the thoughts that go racing through your head (I won’t)

We can’t ignore!
We can’t deny!
Fight their words!
We’ll find our own!
Track Name: Race To The End
I did it to myself, how else did all this fail?
In my hands, my vision became a blurred mess.
I watched my dreams fall apart at the seams.
I can’t explain, sometimes things turn out this way.
I didn’t try.

Are we alive?
A life without living, a lie that keeps us imprisoned.
A lie that keeps us from giving more of ourselves.

Some days you’d fix me, so tired please forgive me.
I tried to defend this, so cold and so empty.
If I could I’d fix it, rearrange all that’s twisted.
You’re so indifferent; I wish that I could take it back.

Are we alive?
A life without living, a lie that keeps us imprisoned.
A lie that keeps us from giving more of ourselves.

Is this what we want? Do we fault all our sins and pretend they’re okay?
Can we find a new path?
Some new way to make amends for this?
Where do we go, to find our way back home?

Are we just living a lie, is this what we want out of life?
Can we find some way to save this?
All we’ve lost we can’t replace it.
