Kaymai i've been buying Mr. Mcmillians work for several years now and this album sounds like a departure from his usual style of composition. you can even tell the album goes into a new direction a few tracks in with the introduction of a second intro. i love how he's expanding out and doing new things. Favorite track: Last Hope.

BlazeToTheFace As someone who has followed Alex for many years it's very enjoyable to see just how much he's learned and developed these past few years. Phantoms represents a new era of Razor Red Noise and is by far the most unique and interesting album he's ever put out and brings new ideas and sounds to the table and blends that together with thoughtworthy lyrics and infectious melodies. Razor Red Noise has come a long way from just doing Linkin Park covers and this album is proof of just that. Love it! Favorite track: Last Hope.

Anne Magix I love all of your albums but I always come back listening to this one. Not only gives it back memories from the time you released it but also the transitions from song to song are so perfect. Every song is so catchy and something special.
And I have to say that you have many sad songs in general, but this is why I love your music. But "image" is the first and only songs I have very hard times listening to it. It always makes me cry because you sing from my soul.

I see the problems sticking around And nothing to be said I feel the fear that you struck in me Going to my head I was never good at saying goodbye But I knew I had to try Soon I'll wish that I had left it all alone Even as the sun goes down You wait until you know Till you know Even as the sky turns black I'm never coming back Tried to pick you, oh apart Couldn't even get a grip And now I see that it's all for nought I'm dying to make it stop I was never good at saying goodbye But I knew I had to try Soon I'll wish that I had left it all alone Even as the sun goes down You wait until you know Till you know Even as the sky turns black I'm never coming back I was never good at saying goodbye But I knew I had to try I was never good at saying goodbye But I knew you wouldn't mind Now I wish that I had left you all Left you all Left you all alone Even as the sun goes down You wait until you know Till you know Even as the sky turns black I'm never coming back

Maybe I'll try and beat this today Always lurking just out of frame That's when my brain turns to lead I have no truths to be said I'm going to fake it instead This is nothing like you promised me Don't tell me that you don't remember, no All those years ago This is nothing like you promised me Don't tell me that you don't remember, no All those years ago Always wanted some kind of help Turns out I didn't know you so well Now, I have no blood to be bled We're going to put this to bed I'm going to make you regret This is nothing like you promised me Don't tell me that you don't remember, no All those years ago This is nothing like you promised me Don't tell me that you don't remember, no All those years ago I always wondered just how long it would take I always needed something more to my name I always wondered just how long it would take I always needed something more to my name I always needed something more to my name I always needed something more

Wondered all along If this road would lead us to madness Wandered anyway all to find Nothing left behind The trail's gone cold The ghosts come home We are not the first in this place And we won't be the last Running from the graves We think we're safe We're fooling ourselves The fire's gone away You couldn't make it stay The fire's gone away You couldn't make it stay The trail's gone cold The ghosts come home

Do you regret the path you chose Or do you intend to keep carving it alone Just want to hide away Just want to find a place To figure all this out I want to hear what you have to say When the silence finally breaks I could see it in your eyes, see it miles away That things were going to have to change I never should have walked away I know I should have found a way And I could see it from the fear, see it clear as day That things would never be the same I never should have walked away I know I should have found a way I thought the years would break the fall I kept waiting but it never came to pass Just want to hide away Just want to find a place To let all this out I want to hear what you have to say When that moment comes around I could see it in your eyes, see it miles away That things were going to have to change I never should have walked away I know I should have found a way And I could see it from the fear, see it clear as day That things would never be the same I never should have walked away I know I should have found a way Do you regret the path you chose Or do you intend to keep carving it alone Fighting it alone

Across a silent expanse it stays The most untouchable, irretrievable And when the hand holds the prize things will change And maybe then they'll know how hard I tried How hard I tried There the fires go There the liars go How did you know I, I see the waves flow You fear the day that comes for all of us And what will it be that you regret the most With pressure building and we're trapped inside it I feel it pulling and we're shut below With pressure building and we're trapped inside it I feel it pulling and we're shut so far below

All the time in the world But that's an illusion of scale Our minutes and seconds are dwindling Like dreams slowly fading but I see them all I know I can never escape When the world's closing in on me One of these days I'll run out of time Feel it all slipping through my hands Through my hands Faceless and meaningless drones And the difference between you and I Desperately holding your side Your soul slowly fading but we'll meet again I know I can never escape When the world's closing in on me One of these days I'll run out of time Feel it all slipping through my hands Through my hands All the time in the world And you've lived an illusion of scale All the time in the world But some things are fated to be I know I can never escape When the world's closing in on me One of these days I'll run out of time Feel it all slipping through my hands Through my hands

Why Are you trying to make me ashamed Are you trying to pull me away When I'm on top of the world So lean back Everything is gonna be on track I know that you don't really mean that Try to ride the line Why Are you determined to bring me down Do you just not want me around But I'm on top of my game Lean back Everything is gonna be on track I know that you don't really mean that Try to toe the line Lean back Everything is gonna be on track I know that you don't really mean that Try to toe the line Lean back Everything is gonna be on track I know that you don't really mean that Try to toe the line

All of this will soon be yours Take my hand and listen close Cause all of this will break your heart But it's used to being bruised and hurt From when you Played with fire And burned all of our chances at moving on I'm moving on Caught staring in the night Deep down I know you're right Just a day was all it took To unwind my tangled roots Just a day to lay it bare And I'm someone else now there's nothing there Since you Played with fire And burned all of our chances at moving on I'm moving on Caught staring in the night Deep down I know you're right Just don't be so hard on yourself And let your reservations go Just don't be so hard on yourself Let your reservations go Till you Play with fire And burn all of our chances at moving on I'm moving on Caught staring in the night Deep down I know you're right

It's come to this No doubt about it I know it seems like I don't care But the taste's still in the air And if anything I'd steal back one more day And share a moment with you When I separate the image from the real With what am I left? A shell of more than this And when I try to recall all the detail, it fades It's gone Once and for all I walked the line And steps that led us here Come back You've gone without a trace The only thing That kept me grounded in hell Is lost And I can't replace When I separate the image from the real With what am I left? A shell of more than this And when I try to recall all the detail, it fades It's gone Once and for all Once and for all

The one thing you're hiding Thinking it'll save your life I know better And you've seen better times The one thing you're slipping Thinking it'll turn your world over Well I've seen better I think you know you're stuck here Circling, treading on broken dreams This is your last hope So make it count And make amends The one tried and tested Method that'll save your life It just gets better As days get shorter now Don't let me catch you slipping Cause I'm thinking it'll be your end Yeah I've seen better I think you know you're stuck here Circling, treading on broken dreams This is your last hope So make it count And make amends Circling, treading on broken dreams This is your last hope So make it count And make amends Maybe it's time to give it a rest Maybe it's time to make amends Circling, treading on broken dreams This is your last hope So make it count And make amends Circling, treading on broken dreams This is your last hope So make it count And make amends

Don't you feel that it's always someone else Making waves in your place And I'm somewhere else But for what it's worth I have no regrets Just as well Can't take another step In the light of day Can anyone make me stay? In the peace and calm Give me your arm Find it all just a little hard to take in There's this wall that no one seems to climb But I don't wonder anymore I know just how it ends Like you always said In the light of day Can anyone make me stay? In the peace and calm Give me your arm Give me your arm

Guess you thought you'd found something Worth sinking teeth into It's always temporary, passing by outside It's always seemed to good to be true In my head Well maybe this is what you hoped Something new to pull apart Delusions clouding what I see And it always seemed to good to be true In my head
