Track Name: The Truth
Crying on the side
You thieving little lie
I suppose we're only human

Now it's starting again, your insinuations
Now I'll never know the truth

So it's now or forever hold
May I be so bold
I suppose I'm only human

Now it's starting again, your insinuations
Now I'll never know the truth

Try again, one more time, one more time

Now it's starting again, your insinuations
Now I'll never know the truth
Track Name: The Fires Rise
It's an empty life to lead
Looking out on the world and not being whole
It's the deepest of fears, the hardest to bear
Not seeing you there

I close my eyes, close my eyes

You think you've lost all that matters
But you, you've never been so wrong
Turn it around, turn it around
Maybe you'll make it out
You'll make it out

I hear the scratches of an old familiar voice
And watch the shards as they fall beneath the ice
And when the fires rise, and start to consume
I know I can't be with you

It's not my time, not my time

You think you've lost all that matters
But you, you've never been so wrong
Turn it around, turn it around
Maybe you'll make it out
You'll make it out

You want it all
You can't have it all
It doesn't stop you trying
Cause I want it all
I can't have it all
It doesn't stop me holding on

You're all that matters
But you, you've never been so alone
Turn it around, turn it around
Maybe you'll make it out
You'll make it out
Track Name: World of Fear
You lie in dereliction
The damage on display
Eyes closed to the light
They're trying to shut you out
Don't let them win

It's not just me, no, everyone's afraid
Hiding somewhere out of sight
Waiting and biding their time

I really don't know your reasons
My closest enemy
Paralysed and now
They're trying to shut you out

It's not just me, no, everyone's afraid
Hiding somewhere out of sight
Waiting and biding their time

It's not just me, no, everyone's afraid
Hiding somewhere out of sight
Waiting and burning alive
Track Name: Night
Pull the wool over my eyes
And everything's alright
I tend to just retreat into a world of my own
Where time moves so slow
I have no control of when I'm torn awake and then
Awake and then

Take the fear, lock it up, throw it away
Take it all, what you think you have
Let it go

As night begins to fall, I can't hear you anymore
The look that's on your face
Tells me you will find a way
To break your silence

How tensions ran so high
And feelings sank so low
All the kinds of answers that we'll never get to know
Like a whisper in the wind, where do I begin
Trying to stand up again, up again

Take the fear, lock it up, throw it away
Take it all, what you think you have
Let it go

As night begins to fall, I can't hear you anymore
The look that's on your face
Tells me you will find a way
To break your silence
Track Name: Disarray
I wake up in a darker place
I don't remember being here
It's slowly coming back to me
How I tried to send a message through

I've never felt so far from you
Never felt so far away

I can't look up at you anymore
I don't remember how this goes
I haven't seen the sun for so long
And now the memories take hold
And push me down below
They push me down and now

I'm trying to send a message through
Now I believe that I was meant to see this day
And everything will find its place in disarray
I've never felt so far from you
Never felt so far away
Now I'm in disarray

Like a crushing weight
I just can't move it off of me
And it's only getting worse
Track Name: Walk With the Dead
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
Till 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
Till you walk with the dead
To the gallows of shame

I can't lose you, not today
Track Name: Visions
Consuming darkness
I think I'm losing my mind
Sitting here, whispering
And waiting for that sign

Throwing into disrepair the dreams I never realised
Stirring endlessly, discomfort lost inside

I held on but it wasn't enough, no
Had to let you go
I tried to reason but you wouldn't listen
Now watch it crumble as you kneel down and pray

Wind through the trees
Blowing all the settled dust away
I'm sitting here whispering
Till nothing else remains

Throwing into disrepair the dreams I never realised
Stirring endlessly, discomfort lost inside

I held on but it wasn't enough, no
Had to let you go
I tried to reason but you wouldn't listen
Now watch it crumble as you kneel down and pray
I called out but it wasn't enough, no
Not to stop you cold
I tried to reason but you wouldn't listen
Now watch it crumble as you turn back and face this

Kneel down and pray
I'm not afraid
Track Name: Before the End
So many thoughts in my head, dreaming of roses
The sun has escaped away, stolen my one piece of mind

Looking around, what happens now
Swimming then drown, these thousands of hours
A second of pain, you beckon and then
Losing it all, prepare for the fall

Nobody's here for you
Shifting the blame, are you
Living like this it's just
A matter of time before the end

How can you ever know
Why did I let you go
Living like this it's just
A matter of time before the end

So many painful truths, making me nervous
The rain is pounding down, stolen my one piece of mind

Looking around, what happens now
Swimming then drown, these thousands of hours
A second of pain, you beckon and then
Losing it all, prepare for the fall

Nobody's here for you
Shifting the blame, are you
Living like this it's just
A matter of time before the end

How can you ever know
Why did I let you go
Living like this it's just
A matter of time before the end

I am slipping away
Holding the secret here
No one can ever know
It's tearing me up inside
Track Name: Silver
Even we have a price
A breaking point from which there's no return
When you ask me where to go from here
I can't tell you, and you don't want to know

The silver beneath can't catch you this time
Step back from the edge
Return from the brink and see
That this is not the time to leave

Another injury sustained
The ones you can't see, they hurt the most
When you ask me how to breathe again
I don't remember, and I don't want to know

Now the silver beneath can't catch you this time
Step back from the edge
Return from the brink and see
That this is not the time to leave

You've walked this for miles
And you're lost in denial
But you'll make a change
Cause you've no other way

And the silver beneath won't catch you this time
Step back from the edge
And return from the brink and see
That this is not the time to leave
