Track Name: Last Transmission
In the morning,
Will you take stock of your life?
As you walk alone beneath an empty sky
Do you grasp at straws
And try to fill this hole?
When you sing it back,
Are you conscious of your own voice?

You've got your life, I've got mine.

Woah it's over,
With a cry of desperation,
Woah it's over,
It's your last transmission,
Woah it's over,
With a cry of desperation,
Woah it's over,
It's your last transmission.

When there's nothing left
Just to keep your story straight
Where will you find that credit that you take?
And behind your back everybody knows the truth
And the only one who still believes is you

You've got your life, I've got mine

Woah it's over,
With a cry of desperation,
Woah it's over,
It's your last transmission,
Woah it's over,
With a cry of desperation,
Woah it's over,
It's your last transmission.

You know you know,
That I'll take it easy on you.
You know you know,
That you're just like me.
You know you know,
That I'll take it easy on you.
You know you know,
That you're just like me.

Woah it's over,
With a cry of desperation,
Woah it's over,
it's your last transmission,
Woah it's over,
With a cry of desperation,
Woah it's over,
It's your last transmission,
It's your last transmission
Track Name: Hey California
Hey Anhedonia, the doctors said you made it out alive
You left California, the skeletons, and city lights on the 405
And hey true believer
When will you put your guns into the ground
(Guns into the ground)
There's no rest for the wicked
Until we pull these towers down on hallowed ground
You're all alone to face the world
Cuz I fell through
And you're all alone until I face the truth

And this is your one last chance to run away
(Baby give me one more minute)
And you're scared of the truth and I know it
From the weight of the promises broken
And this is your one last chance to run away
(Baby give me one more minute)
We can run but we'll never escape it
When all the roads lead us to home
(I can't make it alone)

And hey California,
How long before you sink into the sea
And drown all the liars
Who told us what we'd never be
Baby stay unseen
And hey lone survivor
Was it worth the blood you had to spill?
(Blood you had to spill)
With hearts cold and empty
We're never gonna see the dawn after all we've killed
Until our hunters' hearts are still

And this is your one last chance to run away
(Baby give me one more minute)
And you're scared of the truth and I know it
From the weight of the promises broken
And this is your one last chance to run away
(Baby give me one more minute)
We can run but we'll never escape it
When all the roads lead us to home
(But I can't make it alone)

And it's amazing
The fire you'll walk through
When everything's so far gone
Somehow you stand true

And I can't feel a thing
There's only you
And the pain in your eyes
Will pull me through
So, hey California

And this is your one last chance to run away
(Baby give me one more minute)
And you're scared of the truth and I know it
From the weight of the promises broken
And this is your one last chance to run away

We can run but we'll never escape it
When all of the roads lead us home
But I promise this time that we'll make it
There's only a few left to go
But I can't make it alone
Track Name: Now And Forever
She was a girl lost on top of the world
Her friends lived on pages and screens
She'd smile and she'd laugh as she kept up the act
And traded her sunshine for trees
But a heart still as winter, unbroken but splintered
Made her whole world come undone
But this twilight can't last , and the days fade so fast
To a total eclipse of the sun
(A total eclipse of the sun)

Stop my heart
Dance with me now and forever, just don't let this end
Stop my heart
Take this life
Make me cold as ice

He was alone with a heart made of stone
He kept the whole world out of sight
He'd watch from afar while he burned like a star
Lost in an October sky
But the speed he was turning could not stop his burning
so tied to the fragile and frail
So he crashed to the Earth in a fiery rebirth
And no one around him could tell
(No one around him could tell)

I see you
Right through you
Track Name: I Wish I Had A Voice
As I wait here by the phone
I am blinded, deaf, and forgotten
And I'll stay this way
And everything's coming undone
Now the day's turning to night
And night is empty without you
And these ghosts in my room are so loud
that I'll never sleep here again

Come home
Come home
I can't do this without you

I wish I had a voice
To carry you home
I wish I had a voice
When I try, the worlds fall dead from my mouth
I wish I had a voice to carry you home
I wish I had a voice

Now the words are the flags that we fly
As our ships are passing at midnight
As we sail away, the last thing that anybody hears is our wake
The wrong words cut to the bone
And the right words could move the mountains
Then why can't I say what I mean when you hang on everything

I can't find the words
Screams that go unheard
Every line is lost and I'm choking
No one hears a thing
As we shift unseen
Blurring into one
And we all sing

I am the fields and forests
I am the rain
I'm the setting sun
When the winter's done

But this time I won't have to keep this silence
cause I finally found a voice
And I won't be the one that has to say
I wish I had a voice
Track Name: Villains (Masterplan)
I've been saving all my best lies just for you
And you've been waiting for an honest answer
And I've committed every crimson crime
To prove there's no redemption for the wicked

And I'm sick (sick to death) and I can't get well
And I can't feel a thing and they still can't tell
That I'm falling apart and I need their help
To breathe

All we have is truth

This is my masterplan
A declaration of war against forever
This is my masterplan
A campaign to set the world on fire
I'm so lost I can't see the bottom
I'll shoot first so I'm not forgotten
And this is my masterplan

I've been running from the only thing that's true
And you're the devil at my heels, gunslinger
And I've been chasing every dead end dream of you
Without reason there's no salvation
And I'm so far from home and I'm out of air
And the cables that tie me to you aren't there
And I'm falling to Earth and I can't breathe

All we have is truth
All we have
All we have

And I will be the last alive
To stand beneath a ruined sky
And finally I'll understand that I want them back
