James Phenix Got to be my favourite RRN album. Consistently powerful lyrics and some amazing build-ups, particularly in Solstice. True perfection! Favorite track: In Circles.

Track Name: A Thousand Pieces
Watch everything around you fall
Into a thousand pieces
You and all your little stories
End in happy tears

Don’t keep losing faith
Don’t you know your place?
As I watch you fall from grace
Don’t keep losing faith
Don’t you know your place?
As I watch you fall from grace

You’ve waited so long for this day
Nothing’s going to hold you back right now
You go, you pay the price
You stay with me alone

Don’t keep losing faith
Don’t you know your place?
As I watch you fall from grace
Don’t keep losing faith
Don’t you know your place?
As I watch you fall from grace

You will never follow me
You can never make me see
I will never bow to you
I will never bow to you

Don’t keep losing faith
Don’t you know your place?
As I watch you fall from grace
Don’t keep losing faith
Don’t you know your place?
As I watch you fall from grace

Fall away
Fall away
Track Name: In Circles
Here again
Can’t you see I’m going round in circles I
Lost my mind
And I can’t regain control

And when I see your face I know
The highest walls we climbed
And when I used to close my eyes
You would be there all along

You and I
Like two shadows in the blinding summer sky
Lost my mind
And I can’t regain control

And when I see your face I know
The highest walls we climbed
And when I used to close my eyes
You would be there all along

With your life sprawled out on the kerb
You realise your flaws
With soul and compromise
You live

So you see
The times are changing
I’ll let you go
But still
I can’t let you know

So you see
The times are changing
I’ll let you go
But still
I can’t let you know

And when I see your face I know
The highest walls we climbed
And when I used to close my eyes
You would be there all along

And when I see your face I know
I know it’s time for me to go
Track Name: Don't Pretend
I am losing control
Oh I am here again
I can’t find the reasons
Oh I am here again

Now you’re never gonna fucking change
I knew you wouldn’t
Don’t pretend this was the only time you tried to get away

Don’t you worry about me
I’m not the innocent
Nothing’s ever gonna change

You have never been so wrong
Oh you were all the world
You were keeping the secret
Oh you were all the world

Now you’re never gonna fucking change
I knew you wouldn’t
Don’t pretend this was the only time you tried to get away

Don’t you worry about me
I’m not the innocent
Nothing’s ever gonna change

Don’t you worry about me
I’m not the innocent
Nothing’s ever gonna change
Track Name: Push Back
Don’t know what you’re trying to hide
You thought that nothing here could be
Wreaking havoc in my mind
So now I pray that I will see

See

And I can’t face this

I will never know
How to deconstruct you
If only I could hold
Your lonely hand once more

All the answers I can’t find
When the pink is scratching through
I know the truth will make you blind
And the black is killing you

See

And I can’t face this

I will never know
How to deconstruct you
If only I could hold
Your lonely hand once more

I can’t see you
I can’t feel you
I can smell you
I can breathe you

I will never know
How to deconstruct you
If only I could hold
Your lonely hand once more

I will never know
How to deconstruct you
If only I could hold
Your lonely hand once more

And I can’t face this
Track Name: The Crush
Looking at who I’ve become
It’s now too late
I cannot hide
Seeing the darkness I have made
I cannot push it away

Living in your blackened wake
Your eyes are closing
Your eyes are closing
Struggling through empty days
This light is fading
This light is fading

Walking down this broken road
Feeling the crush grow stronger
Surviving this all over again
It just gets harder
My time gets shorter
This life gets colder

Living in your blackened wake
Your eyes are closing
Your eyes are closing
Struggling through empty days
This light is fading
This light is fading

I cannot hide anymore
Feeling this pain go away

Living in your blackened wake
Your eyes are closing
Your eyes are closing
Struggling through empty days
This light is fading
This light is fading
Track Name: Gallows of Shame
You cannot breathe
Until you see the grave you buried yourself in
We once had a life
And it made me think you could never kill this love

This cannot be
I know you can see into me
Til you walk with the dead
To the gallows of shame

Nothing compares to the feeling that lingers
After light has come and gone
We once had no fear
And now I am scared to even look the other way

This cannot be
I know you can see into me
Til you walk with the dead
To the gallows of shame

I can’t lose you
Not today

Get your fucking face out of this now

This cannot be
I know you can see into me
Til you walk with the dead
To the gallows of shame

This cannot be
I know you can see into me
Til you walk with the dead
To the gallows of shame
Track Name: The Darkest Hours
Open your arms
Open your mind
Just forget it all
Battle through it all

Nobody told you
I left long ago
Nobody told you
You’ve fallen straight through

The darkest hours are passing by
Watch them fly away
And reach until you touch the sky
You’ve no reason to stay

Do you see now
What you lost before
Do you have your happiness?
Are you restored

Nobody told you
I left long ago
Nobody told you
You’ve fallen straight through

The darkest hours are passing by
Watch them fly away
And reach until you touch the sky
You’ve no reason to stay

The darkest hours have just begun
Feel them crawl to you
And hold on till you can no more
I pushed you away
Track Name: Heartbeat
Are you ready? ‘Cus your end is coming
Are you ready, are you ready, are you?

Go

Are you breathing ’cause you don’t seem okay
The fear inside you is dead it seems
Is your heart beating ’cause you don’t seem happy
Never again will I see you dream

Most of all when I smile I think of you
I think how I used to hold you
But today when I say “do you believe”
Nothing’s ever getting through it seems

Are you satisfied, look what you’ve done
You left the memories where they lay
Is your heart beating ’cause you don’t seem happy
Never again will I see you dream

Most of all when I smile I think of you
I think how I used to hold you
But today when I say “do you believe”
Nothing’s ever getting through it seems

Can you, can you, do you see?
Can you, can you, do you feel?
Can you, can you, do you dream?
Can you, can you, do you deceive?

Most of all when I smile I think of you
I think how I used to hold you
But today when I say “do you believe”
Nothing’s ever getting through it seems

Most of all when I smile I think of you
I think how I used to hold you
But today when I say “do you believe”
Nothing’s ever getting through it seems
Track Name: Here Again
Here again
Can’t you see I’m going round in circles I
Lost my mind
And I can’t regain control

And when I see your face I know
The highest walls we climbed
And when I used to close my eyes
You would be there all along

You and I
Like two shadows in the blinding summer sky
Lost my mind
And I can’t regain control

And when I see your face I know
The highest walls we climbed
And when I used to close my eyes
You would be there all along

With your life sprawled out on the kerb
You realise your flaws
With soul and compromise
You live

So you see
The times are changing
I’ll let you go
But still
I can’t let you know

So you see
The times are changing
I’ll let you go
But still
I can’t let you know

And when I see your face I know
The highest walls we climbed
And when I used to close my eyes
You would be there all along

And when I see your face I know
I know it’s time for me to go
