Lyrics
1. SUNBURNT

Burn out bright

hold the torch while you can 

don't fade away

Burn out bright
hold the torch while you can 

don't fade


I saw you pointing the finger

it can't be getting clearer

fade, out

well if I have to spend it for you

I guess I'll be your little martyr

fade, out, fade



We've all been down this road a time or two

and I swear I thought I was never coming home



Patience I know its hard enough for you

we can't stand together
Patience I know its hard enough for you
we can't stand together

I come up empty handed
the ground is falling right where im shrinking

fade, out

I'm just away in the dark

they all talk about the day I fell apart
fade, out, fade

We've all been down this road a time or two
and I swear I thought I was never coming home

Patience I know its hard enough for you

we cant stand together

Patience I know its hard enough for you
we can't stand together


I stand before the crowd, broken

I was once of this 
I will never let them in, no

wont let them intensify

and I never took my time while I was there

I never took the time



Patience I know its hard enough for you

we cant stand together
Patience I know its hard enough for you

we can't stand together



I never thought I'd see the end
I never thought I'd see you


2. UNSOUND

My eyes are clearer now so much more than before I took my turn
You'll never tell them where you're going or how to get there
Let them fear what they don't understand
I see the changing of hands

What ever makes you whole again
What ever brings you home
I never wanted this, I never wanted this

I fear I'm getting older I know my feet are dirtier now
I watch my youth fly right by like I couldn't stand to have it
Any other way
...can see the changing of hands

What ever makes you whole again
What ever brings you home
I never wanted this, I never wanted this

(never wanted)

What ever makes you whole again
What ever brings you home
I never said I'd do this on my own

What ever makes you whole again
What ever brings you home
I never wanted this, I never wanted this

I'm the only one still standing here


3. IN DIVISION

I lay in a bed of resistance
Chained to either side
I really wish I could, reset, rewind
Someone has clawed out my eyes
Can't identify
I really wish I could, reset, rewind
You know it's never the way we planned it
I really wish we could, reset, rewind
I'm planning a revolution, inside my head
I'm planning a revolution, when I break free
I call for annihilation
Describe the sunlight so I can feel its burn
If only I could get up from this bed

I don't know what they told you
But this place is not what you think
(Reset! Rewind!)

Living inside a hole, they put me underground
Where they could never find me unless they dig me out
I search for the answers
'Cause this is the end
I search for the answers

God, it's caving in on me
I feel them watching
But no one seems to care anymore
I'm digging, I'm digging my way out
'Cause when I'm breathing, there is no release

I can't believe this! I can't believe this!
My mind is starting to turn on me!

I've been living inside a hole, they put me underground
Where they could never find me unless they dig me out
I've been living inside a hole, they put me underground
Where they could never find me unless they dig me out


4. CATCH MYSELF CATCHING MYSELF

This time I am falling further away
Nothing has changed
Nothing has changed like I said it would
Faster towards the ground
That's where they wait, where they wait for me and enter my veins
I feel them crawling through my skin
Collecting my nerves that they feed to their children
I swear it has to stop, 'cause there is nothing left to give
Nothing left to give

I'll be the victor!
I will destroy them!

I wanna watch them burn it down
So I can breathe again

Inhale 'cause after tonight, I won't be the same
Exhale and find my feet on the ground
(I'm not the same anymore)
(I'm not the same anymore)
As I sink down into the floor
And the walls are caving in
And I don't believe in them anymore
Now I try to balance my walk
I am coming down alone
And I have to get them out of my head

I wanna watch them burn it down
So I can breathe again
I wanna watch them burn it down
So I can breathe again

One breath at a time, I'll be just fine
'Cause I'll be right on the inside
I steady my hands, inside of my shell
And wait till their backs are turned
Oh, inside of my head
Where they thought they would win
But I got them right where I want them
Pushed to either side
I'm burning them alive
I hear them, begging and pleading


5. PAPER LUNG

(It's too late)
(It's too late, now, to pry away)
(To pry away)
My candle burns on both ends so where does it leave us
Standing emptier than we ever left you
With your head in the water it's getting harder to breathe
So stand up, stand up

It's too late, to pry away
It's too late, to pry away

Don't get me wrong, I'm just as scared as you are now
You dropped us off here with no direction
But you never even tried to fight the current
Watch the water pouring faster into your lungs
So breathe in, breathe in

It's too late, to pry away
It's too late, to pry away

But it's hard to hear me when your sinking, down, here
I wanna see you wash it down, wash it down
How can you sleep here
I bear the weight of your world
I don't believe in a single word you sold to me, sold to me
I bear your burden for the last time
I swear I'm done with all of this

It's too late, to pry away from the undertow
I watch it take you, then I walk away


6. DESPERATE TIMES, DESPERATE MEASURES

I've been crawling around in the dark for a while.
Sprawled out across the floor.
Not collecting dust anymore.
Define me a parasite.
Define my host.
Trapped beneath the floor.
I slowly waste away.
Now I pull my frail body into the chair.
And look me in the face.
Oh, disappointments, so disappointing.
This may be my last one.
It's gonna be good and hard.
It might be a touch out of key. (a touch out of key)
When this thing breaks.
I will be you
You will be me.
I pray that this is really happening.
When this thing breaks.
I will be you
You will be me.
Let's hope this is short lived and riddled with disease
Oh, God the noise! Is ringing in my ear.
It's so unclear. (so unclear)
I hear them talking.
But can't make out the words.
Speak up. Speak clear.
I hear them talking.
But can't make out the words.
Speak up. Speak clear.
God, where have I been.
I'm terrible company. With zero apologies.
My God where have I been?
Where have I been?
While I sink to the bottom.
I'll sing out as it fills with water.
I hope I've done enough.
When this thing breaks.
I will be you
You will be me.
Let's hope this is short lived and riddled with disease
When this thing breaks.
I will be you
You will be me.
I pray that this is really happening.
I'm worn out.
I'm worn thin.
I will never break through.
I'm worn out
(Where have I been)
I'm worn thin
(Where have I been)
I will never break through.
(Where have I been)
Let me out.
Let me out.
Let me out.


7. TOO BRIGHT TO SEE, TOO LOUD TO HEAR

Good God, if your song leaves our lips
If your work leaves our hands
Then we will be wonders and vagabonds
They will stare and say how empty we are
How the freedom we had turned us up as dead men
Let us be cold, make us weak
Let us, because we all have ears
Let us, because we all have eyes
How they knew that this would happen
We're so run down
Good God! Can you still get us home...
How can we still get home
I'm not dreaming
We're forgetting our forgiveness


8. IN REGARDS TO MYSELF

Wake up! Wake up! My God!
This is not a test!
And it's not too late to come clean
Get it off your chest
So steady your hand before your face and concentrate
There's got to be some stable ground
Left to walk on

So tear another page from the book
Are you asleep or just alone?
Clear this room from your lungs

Pull yourself together
Pull yourself together, man
Pull yourself together
Pull yourself together

On your back,
You're sleeping in a bed of shame
Let the light breath some new life into this room
It's what keeps you coming back
Made up of insatiable taste
Bury your head in your hands
And sing into yourself

Oh!

Just what are you so afraid of?
What are you so afraid of?
You're staring truth in the face
So come on down
What are you so afraid of?

You're busy living now, aren't you?
You're busy making vows
You're coming unglued

Time is shorter than you know
I know the light is blinding to the naked eye
So why don't you take steps away from being alone?
I swear, it's not too late for you

It's all worth reaching for
It's all worth reaching for
It's all worth reaching for
The hand to pull you out
It's all worth reaching for
The hand to pull you out

Wake up! Wake up! Wake up!
And step outside your box
Wake up!


9. YOU'RE EVER SO INVITING

The time has come for you to sit this out
To fit inside your mold
Would be to sell myself short

This ground we tread upon
Is now filling up to our necks
We turn the pages left to right
We see everything

Oh, my story's growing, it is on my last request
Don't make me feel so contradicting
There's no room for cheating and being yourself
Failure leaves such a bitter taste in my mouth

And on the last hour
We write so many new chapters again
And on the outside
Where there are no surprises

Oh, it's getting longer
To see it through their eyes
Would bring me so much closer
You can do this night after night
Failure leaves such a bitter taste in my mouth

Taste and see, I swear I know what's good
Be still and know that they won't lie to you every single time you're facing lies
I know why you never take your eyes off me
I've used my lungs for everything but breathing

I find myself dried up in this conversation
So pull me out, pull me aside


10. WRITING ON THE WALLS

Maybe we, why don't we sit right here for half an hour?
We'll speak of what a waste I am, and how we missed your beat again!

I swear we need to find some comfort in this run down place
To bridge the gap of this conscious state that we live in
And I'm short of time

How could you trust it
(these fate trashed walls)
To fit the shape of what they tell you
Come on, move on, move on
But mostly what they show you
(Yeah, yeah)
Not this way
Not this way

I'm taking back all the things I said
Thinking back all the things I said
(keep me filled in, I swear I'll come)

We walk alone,
We walk alone,
We walk alone,
We walk alone,
We walk alone,
We walk alone, back home
My own back home

You're almost gone and I'm ok (I still say you're sorry) to give you chance to be afraid
But never
I remember your presence

I hope to God you come down
I hope to God you feel this now
I hope to, god you come down
I hope to,
(God)

I know there must be some way out of here and all of them will be waiting there


11. A BOY BRUSHED RED LIVING IN BLACK AND WHITE

Can you feel your heartbeat racing?
Can you taste the fear in her sweat?
You've done this wrong
It's too far gone
These sheets tell of regret
I admit that I'm just a fool for you
I am just a fool for you

Here is where we both go wrong
Tonight's your last chance to
Do exactly what you want to
And this could be my night
This is what makes me feel alive
Makes you feel alive
Here is where we both go wrong
So sign me up
And toss this key
'Cause for now we're
Living in this moment
And we both ignore the truth
Its all over
Its all over

I feel your heart against mine
So take a breath and close your eyes

[chorus]
Your lungs have failed and they both stopped breathing
My heart is dead and its way past beating
Something has gone terribly wrong
I'm scared, you're scared, we're scared of this
I never thought we'd make it out alive
I never told you but its all in your goodbyes
It's all in your goodbyes

Well look who's dying now
Slit wrists sleeping with the girl next door
I always knew you were such a sucker for that
It doesn't matter what you say
You never mattered anyway
Never mattered anyway

In this moment that we both ignore the truth
It's all over
It's all over
I feel your heart against mine
So take a breath and close your eyes

[chorus]

Don't shake, I hate to see you tremble
Trembling you've lost your touch
Haven't you, I'm so addicted

[chorus]


12. REINVENTING YOUR EXIT

It's 12th and Hide on a Sunday
Feeling like we're gold
And we're nothing short of invincible

It starts again
Can you feel it?
It takes your breath away
Stop saying that we're invincible
(it's round and round)
You're uninviting, unrewarding
And I'm misinforming you

We all want to be somebody
Right now we're just looking for the exit
This is the way I would have done things
Up against the wall
You've got me up against your wall

It's you and me on a Monday
The lies that we told
This is were we both go numb now
You broke my heart again this time
You're fading now, you crossed the line

We all want to be somebody
Right now we're just looking for the exit
This is the way I would have done things
Up against the wall
You've got me up against your wall

Reaching out for a hand that's not there
But you're not there and I'm not

This is the way I would have done things
Up against the wall
This is the way we should have done
When we're up against a wall
Up against a wall


13. IT'S DANGEROUS BUSINESS WALKING OUT YOUR FRONT DOOR

I've been up at this all night long
I've been drowning in my sleep
I've prayed for your safe place
And its time for us to leave

Time is running, its running on empty and the gas is running out
I've decided that tonight is the night
That I set love aside
Full speed ahead this seems to be the place
I've seen this once before
Planned perfection sought in my dreams
Hoping this would take you home

My knuckles have turned to white
There's no turning back tonight
So kiss me one last time

Around this turn where the cross will cast your shadow
The people will all gather
To remember such a day
Where the flames grew as high as trees
And the world stopped for you and me

My knuckles have turned to white
There's no turning back tonight
Kiss me one last time
(Shut your eyes)
My knuckles have turned to white
There's no turning back tonight
(so hold on tight)
Kiss me one last time
(Shut your eyes)

I will now bring new meaning to the word alone
Endless nights of dreaming of life
And the days we should have spent here

Drowning in my sleep I'm drowning in my sleep
Drowning in my sleep I'm drowning in my sleep

Glass shatters and comes to a halt
I thought we'd be there by now
I thought it would be so much quicker than this

Pain has never been so brilliant
I made sure you were buckled in
Now you can walk hand in hand
Hand in hand with him

My knuckles have turned to white
There's no turning back tonight
Kiss me one last time
(Shut your eyes)
My knuckles have turned to white
There's no turning back tonight
(so hold on tight)
Kiss me one last time
(Shut your...)


14. I'VE GOT TEN FRIENDS AND A CROWBAR THAT SAYS YOU AIN'T GONNA DO JACK

Carry out the sound
Past our eyes horizon
I'm standing still, I'm standing still
Waiting for this all to change
Now my hands are up.
I'm walking out, I'm walking out
What do you expect of me?

Did you think that this was all an excuse for
Hospitality
I know you think its all because of me
At first glance, I'll breathe in
Leaving myself no room to move, at all
My mind is so flooded and I'm drunk with regret
Swimming in a sea of hope tonight
I find your hand and trace it with mine
As we push away with everything we have
With everything we have left

Oh you're acting on my words
We can start the fire, that will light up the night
No I wouldn't be too sure of you at all
We'll watch it burn together on respective sides
(yeah)
We look so good, as we fall

I'll go ahead and re-elect perfection
Its never looked as good as it does on you right now
I'll go ahead and make an incision
Doubt you'll feel anything at all
A fake, a fraud, forked tongue and I am nervous
At least I can say I made it out this time
I am just fine where you have left me
As for you be sure to cover up your mouth

I don't know how to say this
My thoughts have just run out


15. WHEN THE SUN SLEEPS

I thought you'd come back at least I prayed (so I prayed)
The romance has been dead (the romance is dead, the romance is dead)
For years (you come back)
But I've been too afraid to dig the grave (so I prayed)
Relief support never came

Memories carry me through the day
Of when we were kids
And angels came to watch us play

Close my eyes, just for tonight
The sun still sleeps, and when she wakes
Close my eyes, just for tonight
The sun still sleeps, and when she wakes

A movie that plays in my mind
Remembering you helps me survive
Every day a re-run of the next
I promised to stay by your side
That all would change, I can't complain
Another victim of the game

Close my eyes, just for tonight
The sun still sleeps, and when she wakes
Close my eyes, just for tonight
The sun still sleeps, and when she wakes

Maybe love will find us again
For there is always tomorrow
Sincerely till the end
Close my eyes just for tonight
The sun still sleeps and when she wakes,
Close my eyes just for tonight
The sun still sleeps and when she wakes

Close my eyes, just for tonight
The sun still sleeps, and when she wakes
Close my eyes, just for tonight
The sun still sleeps, and when she wakes

You'll be a memory (be a memory)
You'll be a memory (be a memory)
You'll be a memory (be a memory)
You'll be a memory, memory, memory, memory.


16. CRIES OF THE PAST

It happened all so fast, heavy with sleep, my eyes closed...
The next thing I remember was crawling out from the car,
And seeing you lying there
Holding your head, kissing you for the last time
The taste of blood on my lips...
Your clothes torn apart, perfumed with gas
It seems like it was yesterday when the rain poured down
I can still hear your screams as if it was happening all over again

Saturday, December 4th:
That night would become a grave,
That would crush my heart
Joy and laughter exchanged for grief, and silence.
Searching for so long to find you,
And the moment I did, you were ripped from me...
Laying here on this empty shelf never to be read again
In these pages lies every memory of you
The wind blew your heart over my eyes,
And I slept for days praying not to awake,
But these dreams can only last so long.
Facing the day looking through these tears
I'll always look back and remember that night...

Looking over that casket, seeing your face..
Times of past rushing by..
Touching your cold hand, wishing it would touch me back
You look so pretty lying there, just like the first day we met

It feels so real; like old times, but it's nothing, it's nothing...

I can taste the stale air on my tongue.
And death lights up the sky.
Hope finds itself it and it ends, stopping at my thoughts
Pictures of you help bring back the tears

Walking in the present, but living in the past
How much longer will I embrace sorrow?

From the moment that you entered my life
My whole outlook on love would change

You brought out a happiness I didn't even know I had,
And now you've gone, leaving without a goodbye...

THAT GLASS HEART THAT RESTED IN MY CHEST HAS FALLEN AND SHATTERED

Here on, Lord, is the remains of a broken heart
For I have faith you can give me joy and life again

Death has fallen, but love covers me
Heaven is now home to my angel of love


17. HEART OF STONE

All the blood in their souls pour out, look for something in the dark
Blinded they find nothing another lust given in, another trust shut within
Listen to him speak so holy, father God, I'm saved
That's fall that matters let the rest burn in hell
Preach false, a sin is a sin, doesn't give you the right to condemn then to hell
they know their wrongs you don't have to tell them their faults
Once you were a sinner how would you like it if someone laughed at you because of your wrongs?
I'm not here to accept their sings but I'm here to show them love within
Listen to him speak so holy, Father God I'm saved
That's all that really matters let the rest burn in hell.
No Matter how hard you try you can't convince me that you represent Christ
No more, I'm fed up with this... you've already killed too many souls
It's time you wake up and see the truth Christian, I stand no afraid of my beliefs
Learn to love your enemies, to open their eyes you must be willing to die
Look at your own wrongs before you look at someone else's
You want to save souls or put souls to death
Giving our savior a bad name, giving me a bad name
You're so wrong with your beliefs, sit in church every week, but never do you help the weak
This is time to take back what's ours, not to give the world what's ours
Don't you want to see everyone saved or just yourself with a river of blood on your hands?
