James P 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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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
