James Phenix I love the way The Search, Wounded and The Surface are based around similar riffs. Gone Again and In Your Footsteps have to be some of the best RRN tracks! Favorite track: Gone Again.

Track Name: Once an Exile
Once a violent soul
I fight no more
Pushed away the world
You closed that door
Once an exile
And now everything will change

But you remain
You stay behind
And blindly go
Towards the light

We try to fight what isn't real
My only weakness holds me still
Once an exile, I'm almost free
Stop thinking that you're more than me

Once your solemn voice
Would keep me sane
Now it's all I hear

Once you listened in
To comfort me
Now you wouldn't care

But you remain
You stay behind
And blindly go
Towards the light

We try to fight what isn't real
My only weakness holds me still
Once an exile, I'm almost free
Stop thinking that you're more than me
Track Name: All the Light You Lost
Rekindle all the light you lost
It's still within you
You're wasting all the time you bide
Because they expect you

But this isn't quite what they had in mind
When they thought to deny you everything

Don't believe their words
They're leading you astray
I remember your ways

Reclaiming all you know is your right
It's in your grasp
The voices bouncing off the walls
As they close in

No, this isn't quite what they had in mind
When they thought to deny you everything

Don't believe their words
They're leading you astray
I remember your ways

Don't believe their words
They're leading you to break
All that blame in your wake
Track Name: End of the Line
I can hear the cracking of the leaves
Leaving broken trails beneath our feet
Reminding me of lives gone by
Reminding me the reasons why

There's so much more that I could do
It turned to war like you said it would
It seems then this is the end of the line

Lighting up the night is what we do
Punching holes that we may fall right through
Reminding me of lives gone by
Reminding me why I shouldn't try

There's so much more that I could do
It turned to war like you said it would
It seems then this is the end of the line

There's so much more that I could have done
It turned to war and left just one
It seems we've come to the end of the line

We'll find a way to see you
We'll find a way to get to you
We'll find a way to see through
Right to the end of the line

There's so much more that I could do
It turned to war like you said it would
It seems then this is the end of the line

We'll find a way to see you
We'll find a way to get to you
We'll find a way to see through
Right to the end of the line
Track Name: Gone Again
They're shouting each other down again
Because neither can let it go
And they don't care I'm listening
The violence is all they know

There's no way I can stand between
And try to break it up
When I try I lose my strength
And think of you
The feelings gone again

Escape is ever closer now
Whispers through the wall
I wake one day to find you gone
And follow far too slow

The more we try to hide our hand
The more it seems to show
We can't keep up this house of cards
And soon enough something's got to go

In your footsteps I will walk
No more hiding in the dark

Where did you go?

The more we try to hide our hand
The more it seems to show
We can't keep up this house of cards
And soon enough someone's got to know

In your footsteps I will walk
No more hiding in the dark
In your footsteps I will walk
Didn't know finding you would be so hard

There's no way I can stand between
And try to break it up
When I try I lose my strength
And think of you
The feelings gone again

I will follow to be with you
Until the end
I will follow to be with you
Track Name: Unexpected
Here again let me walk you through
Familiar sights they must be to you
I'm getting tired of the same old words
We've been here before

I can't forget what you did back there
I can't forgive what you said in fear
I can't let you just walk away
Just walk away, just walk away

It's not what you expected
It's not what you want
It's not what you expected of me

How many times does that make me right
How many times does that make you wrong
You've got to know you can't win this fight
We've done this before

I can't forget what you did back there
I can't forgive what you said in fear
I can't let you just walk away
Just walk away, just walk away

It's not what you expected
It's not what you want
It's not what you expected of me
It's not what you expected
It's not what you want
It's not what I expected to do

Going in circles to the start
Things need to change from waiting
Waiting

It's not what you expected
It's not what you want
It's not what you expected of me
It's not what you expected
It's not what you want
It's not what I expected to do
Track Name: The Search
It's as if no-one sees you
With time standing still
Many things left to do now
It's all uphill

Sometimes it's not as if you even try
But things fall apart anyway
It's the curse you have

Many mountains stand between you
And what you seek
Keep walking ever faster
It's not yet out of your reach

Sometimes it's not as if you even try
But things fall apart anyway
It's the curse you have
Track Name: Wounded
Slowing the pace, are we still standing
Was this meant to be, are we losing
It's the sense that we live after all this darkness
But it's taken its toll
And there's not much left in me

Not now
It won't be you, not you

In hindsight it's clear how far we went wrong
We had nothing to fear but ourselves
It's the look of the wounded
We've finally won
But it's taken its toll
And there's not much left in me

Not now
It won't be you, not you

As we find ourselves locked in this chaos
With nothing to lose, embracing madness
Forcing us to block out the sadness
We're just empty shells
And nothing left in me

Not now
It won't be you, not you
Track Name: The Surface
Remember telling me you're alive, alive
You need to find a place to go, to hide

The crushing surface pulls you home
I see you paralysed in terror
I don't know you

You thought you'd found a place to stay away
But it was nothing but a fake display

With every second coming closer to the dread
Not knowing where I should have gone
Just frozen
The crushing surface pulls you home
I see you paralysed in terror
I don't know you

I don't know you

With every second coming closer to the dread
Not knowing where I should have gone
Just frozen
The crushing surface pulls you home
I see you paralysed in terror
I don't know you
Track Name: Already Lost
So what's changed inside for you
That you feel like this
You never used to look so haunted

I know you could try to see
That it's not all bad
And you don't need to change at all

To leave it all behind
Before we're out of time
To leave it all behind
Stop, stop
Walking as if you've already lost

How much more of this
Can you really take
You never used to act so paranoid

And we're trying to get to you
But it's hard sometimes
When everything is closing in

To leave it all behind
Before we're out of time
To leave it all behind
Stop, stop
Walking as if you've already lost
We're running out of time
To leave it all behind
Stop, stop
Walking as if you've already lost

I don't know if you can see what I can see
That you're walking into something
I can't save you from
I don't know if you can see what I can see
And it's tragic how you're paling away

And now we're out of time
And you are left behind
Stop, stop
Walking as if you've already lost
Already lost
Stop, stop
Walking as if you're already gone
Track Name: In Your Footsteps
Take all your feelings
As someone used to say
You'll learn to move on

Try to believe that, just for a second
I longed for someone like you

All I sought was a strong heart beating
All I found was a weak day breaking

Take all your laughter
Pack up and move along
It's coming back some day

I held a false hope, I wanted to make this work
And maybe next time it will

All I sought was a strong heart beating
All I found was a weak day breaking
