Track Name: We Are The Fallen
I had a chance to live inside of a moment
You had a chance to start another life
And then I saw that you were drifting way too far away to bring you back in sight
And then I found that you were halfway out the door and slowly leaving with the tide

I say that we are the fallen
I say that we are forgotten

Suddenly you're breaking down the person I'm becoming
(my safety gone with time)
You're making me believe I am the victim

Not enough for a whisper, its encased in your lies
When will forgiveness come?
I get the feeling I could light a fire inside this room and let it spread outside
I get the feeling I could put this gun up to your head and make you lose your mind

I say that we are the fallen
I say that we are forgotten

Suddenly you're breaking down the person I'm becoming
(My safety gone with time)
You're making me believe I am the victim

Not enough for a whisper, its encased in your lies
When will forgiveness come?
Track Name: Like Smoke
Take it back to the times we had when the world was smaller and our dreams had magic left
When did it all get forgotten?

We grow up and tell ourselves that we can get it back, yeah we can get it back on track
But will our sins be forgiven?
We live, we cry, we hurt, we lie, we learn, we try, we know, that we all die

Why is it always someone you know that hurts you the most?
They hurt you the most
Why can't we just give up our ghosts?
Make vanish like smoke
Vanish like smoke

Take it back to the times we had when the people cared about themselves a little less
When did the love get forgotten?

We grow up and tell ourselves that we did everything right, everything right
Will our mistakes be forgiven?
We live, we cry, we hurt, we lie, we learn, we try, we know that we'll survive

Why is it always someone you know that hurts you the most?
They hurt you the most
Why can't we just give up our ghosts?
Make vanish like smoke
Vanish like smoke

And you can never see it
Never see it coming
So you look away instead
And can never see them
Never see em leaving
Til they're gone and leave so far away.
Far away
Track Name: Save Me From Myself
It's time to be who I'm supposed to
To love the way I used to
To open up my chest and breathe you into me
It's time to be the one you've waited for
Finally I ignore
I see that I have found the one I know I need

Let's be honest, we still have time
We'll get beyond this if you just try

You gave me everything I could be
But I threw it away and now only you can save me from myself

Inside, my hardened heart is failing
I'm begging you to take me
I promise you I'll never stray away again
This time I'll show you that it's better
I'll show you its forever
I'll show you I'm the one on who you can depend
Track Name: The Only Way
I've fallen further down
I can't find the way out
I've given it all away
To be close to you now

No I don't want another not forever
No I won't take a chance on any other
No I don't want another not forever
No I won't, never again

You say it's the only way
We could get our hands on yet another chance
Some day you say you'll stay
Will I ever be the reason that it's all okay?

So take a walk with me along this open road
We'll see things we've never seen
And go where? We don't know

No I don't want another not forever
No I won't take a chance on any other
No I don't want another not forever
No I won't, never again
Track Name: Ghost In This Machine
If you could just let down your guard you'd know that you were wrong
Every day we spent making it worse, yeah you were making it worse
I can see the fault was yours and yours alone
Your excuses all sound over-rehearsed, over-rehearsed.

We are patterns in the static
We are the ghost in this machine
We're out of sequence and erratic
Among these ruins we are kings

At first I thought I'd found someone who understood
But miles and trials would prove beginning of the end, beginning of the end
It took me all this time to learn you're so out of control
You're not the one I knew, but never again, won't happen ever again no.

We are patterns in the static
We are the ghost in this machine
We're out of sequence and erratic
Among these ruins we are kings
Track Name: Get Yourself Right
I cannot let go of this fear
Sometimes I feel like I have slept through all these years
And I am stuck, yes stuck, right here
But I'll be fighting through the pain until I'm home with you my dear

Rest, just rest

Its okay, you'll be fine
You just need a little time
To get yourself right
Now I'm holding on too hard
And I am aching from the scars
I need some time
to get myself right

Let go, of all you're clinging onto
Free yourself from what binds you
binds you to the floor
Take back all the things you're used to
Whatever you belong to
and just walk out the door

Rest, just rest
Track Name: Lost Your Will
You said "go and do what you want"
And I did
A lot of good it did me
The end still came on strong for both of us
It's never how hard we fall, it's how we rebuild ourselves again

(I'm singing whoa)

Calling all the victims out
You're on the spot now stand and make amends
Before our hearts die young
Pride is all I feel tonight, and so I ask myself" is this the end?"
I know you would run away, suddenly
If I tried to wash away the colors of your beauty

Don't you dare back down, I'm a little too late
But you've lost your will to fight for us
Don't you dare back down when holding your own
Even if it's against me all along

When you say, "time waits for no one", exceptions apply to you
Learning what to burn and what to love is more than Ican realize
without a wound to cauterize
There's a lot to live for (woah oh)
It's a lot to fight for, let it go

Don't you dare back down, I'm a little too late
But you've lost your will to fight for us
Don't you dare back down when holding your own
Even if it's against me all along

Why do we fear?
The road to clarity haunts us
Standing one by one
The road to justice is twice as hard
What do we hear?
I stand alone in silence and find myself singing "whoa"
Track Name: Same Damn Town
This time I can't decide to follow
I'm feeling far too hollow
I don't know who I am inside
Inside there's nothing I can cling to
No one that I belong to
I need to be with you tonight

Cuz we are too bright to be burnt down
Too strong to be pushed out
Of this same old town
And we are so high above their doubt
Too strong to be strung out
In this same damn town

Tonight will be the end of this life
Will be the final goodbye
I killed it cuz I know it's right
My mind is my escape from seeing
It's my escape from breathing
It's only what I want inside

Cuz we are too bright to be burnt down
Too strong to be pushed out
Of this same old town
And we are so high above their doubt
Too strong to be strung out
In this same damn town

My face bloodied, its numb and shaking from the bite of cold concrete
My arms are aching as I pull myself to my feet
And shape my hands into a fist that they should meet.
(come down on me, take it out on me)
Track Name: This Gun Is Loaded
All this time, this wasted life, this poor excuse for progress
You've gotta get, get out of your head
You've gotta let, let go of regrets and take a deep, deep breath and let it out slowly

Can I find someone who cares?

For everything you ever did or put me through
And all the times I ever was reminded
You should know it's always coming back to you
This gun is loaded
Finally I have what I looked for in you
And never do I want you in my memories
This gun is loaded

All my life I killed my mind with dreams of fame and glory
You've gotta let, let go of regrets and take a deep, deep breath and let it out slowly

Can I find someone to listen?
Can I find someone who cares?
Can I find somewhere to rest where I know I am home
Can I find some other reason to forget all this treason, and rest in a place I am home?

For everything you ever did or put me through
And all the times I ever was reminded
You should know its always coming back to you
This gun is loaded
Finally I have what I looked for in you
And never do I want you in my memories
This gun is loaded

I wish I never had tried
I wish I never had tried to see
Cuz now my feelings have died
And you're still waiting in line for me
Track Name: I Hope You're Happy
Oh no, go slow, gotta get away from all of the waste in this life, the dark in this light
Be still, until, I can get a hold of everything that I feel.
I can't tell if this is real.

Is it real?

I hope you're happy you betrayed us all
I hope she makes you forget, all the moments you spent
I hope you're happier without us all
Because you deserve to know
Just what it's like to be alone

Breathe in, feel it, gotta find a way to keep the anger away, the worst things I could say
I can't see clearly, trying to decide how to live in between
The silence is deafening

I hope you're happy you betrayed us all
I hope she makes you forget, all the moments you spent
I hope you're happier without us all
Because you deserve to know
Just what it's like to be alone

How could you go and leave your own
You had to know you left your own
Track Name: How It Feels To Breathe
I gave my life to the road, to cities stages and dreams
It's all I know
I reinvent and explore the world I've been fighting for
I've learned to let go of the feeling that anywhere but this highway can be home

I remember the California sun beyond the first horizon
I remember the nights on fire, the way she felt, that perfect motion
I remember the days we lost the nights we won the eastern ocean
I almost forgot who I was and how it feels to breathe

The world is ours tonight the noise the light
Don't ever let them tell you who to be

And we will play these roles together with your hand in mine. Ignite.
Let it react and expand: this life they can't understand
We're not going to let the fire inside die
Living this life is surreal, is the real life we've been waiting for

I remember the California sun beyond the first horizon
I remember the nights on fire, the way she felt, that perfect motion
I remember the days we lost the nights we won the eastern ocean
I almost forgot who I was and how it feels to breathe

The world is ours tonight the noise the light
Don't ever let them tell you who to be

We can never know, we can never see anything that's coming for us
So we always live alone, always bleed alone til the end
Track Name: Keep Safe Those Who Can't Fight
Lay down your arms
Embrace the rhythm of the wake before you crash.
The life that you lead will take its place around us
We live, we live, we live to survive it

You play the game so well even though it never was truly real.
You burn the pages rather than learning from you faults
Composing volumes for disaster

Break the cycle, you're a cancer
Break the cycle, never again
Doubtful dreaming burning ever slowly
Cigarettes last much longer than you my dear

Lay down your arms
Embrace the rhythm of the wake before you crash.
The life that you lead will take its place around us
We live, we live, we live to survive

Break the cycle, you're a cancer
Break the cycle, never again
Doubtful dreaming burning ever slowly
Cigarettes last much longer than you

It's hard to say that you convinced me
"Us against the world" is nothing but a trap that you set to capture my mind.
And to put us in line
I've seen it all before

Desperate just breathe
