Lyrics


1. False Idols Fall

YOUR TIME IS UP
We've been counting down your days
Going over every false THING YOU SAY
We wish it could be different
We wished you stayed the same
Tearing down our idols
living life OUR OWN WAY
Taking the chance to say

All my heros are dead
All my heros are dead

Were we too blind to see you were only human like me
But we can't help but feel
Empty words they're all you gave
Struggling to take back our days

They build you up to watch you fall
Can't you see they can't be what you want
You build them up to watch them fall

Where did we lose control
We thought it'd last forever

We're come and count away your days
Our heroes are not what they used to be (OUR IDOLS FALL)
Our heroes are not what they used to be (OUR IDOLS FALL AWAY)


2. My Other Side

well that's what I thought
you always finish before we start
don't have to say a word
living for these moments

who's been let down
who's been dragged down
been through this so many times before
eats me inside
out of this world you know
trapped inside so many nights alone

I have to know
WHAT'S INSIDE YOUR HEART
WHAT'S INSIDE YOUR HEART
promises have been made
I've been let down
what's inside your heart

we search and we search for
the answers worth fighting for
GO!
I have to get out, break out
I can't be you

who's been let down
who's been dragged down
been through this so many times before
eats me inside
out of this world you know
trapped inside so many nights alone

seems now I'm in too deep
and it's never going to be the same
this is me, take it or leave
cuz it's never going to feel the same
I can't be you


3. Wake The Dead

This is our city of the dead
Another life holds its weary head
We hope, we try, we live, survive
Counting days, trying to get by
Waiting for the calling
Anticipation in the air
We hope and dream of difference
City sleeping, unaware

Break the silence, WAKE THE DEAD
Running through these streets alone
I'll kick and scream, let's break the hold
Cuz I swear, and this won't render useless
I promise you, we've come this far
And I'm not stopping, I'm not stopping now
I'm not hiding in shadows
Wake up
Send out this message, it's clear

You said, you said, you said
this time was gonna be different
WAKE UP THE DEAD

Coming alive
Something stirs inside
This isn't over yet
Shake off the dirt
Swallow regret
Stop living under the weight
Living under the weight of regret
Your regrets
DON'T LOSE HOPE
Don't let it happen to you
DON'T LOSE HOPE
Which side are you gonna choose?
Cuz I believe, I believe it's in you RISE!

We said, we said, we said
This time was gonna be different
WAKE UP THE DEAD


4. The Trouble I Love

So here I go again
We had our chance
half smile, you look my way
run now and some might say

We all die alone.
We all die alone.
We all die alone.

And I'll never forget what killed us
she screams to be alone
Going over it in my head
What's left, what's left to say

We all die alone.
We all die alone.
We all die alone.

Can we ever take back the nights
the nights we wasted on another fight
Does this really all end tonight
Does this really all end tonight
This is the rest
This is the rest of our lives (alone)
Can we ever take back the nights (alone)
Does this really all end tonight? (alone)

TAKE BACK OUR NIGHTS
TAKE BACK OUR NIGHTS
TAKE BACK OUR NIGHTS
Take back our nights!


5. Talk Is Cheap

your debt's escalating
whisper no regrets
run your mouth in circles
chewing, chewing the flesh

(your talk is cheap) and it's going nowhere
think you're out changing the world
choking on each word (you spit)

those basement dwelling days are so far from me
moving mountains in your head
buying into all that's said

(dive, sink, drown)
caught up in this lie
(dive, sink, drown)
caught up in this life outside your own

(your talk is cheap) and it's going nowhere
think you're out changing the world
choking on each word (you spit)

convinced of your false visions
(you're the sucker)
KEEP TALKING
keep talking away
KEEP TALKING

cashing in all your petty words
keep talking away
it's so far from me
living like you're dead


6. Partners In Crime

I did this to myself
the summer air burning in my lungs
one more glance till I come undone
let's stop this rising sun

bright lights can see
they always shine right through me
leaving me an open book
of halfways and could-have-beens
taking us to the end, end, end
and that summer changed us
it's best I admit that to myself
stuck trapped in memories
the tragic tale of you and me

can't get back to the way we were
nothing else mattered
it was us against the world
it was us against the world
always us against the world

now it's just me sucking in that summer air
what a summer, I had no care
how quick it all crashed down
not willing to bend, bend, bend

and these struggles changed us
it's best to admit that to yourself
stuck trapped in memories
the tragic tale of you and me

can't get back to the way we were
nothing else mattered
it was us against the world

that morning came too soon
what were we suppose to do
one choice torn in two
I know what you were put through
and I thought we had it
we didn't have enough
we can't go back
we'll never go back now
THIS IS THE END
THIS IS THE END
This is the end!


7. Our Distance

I want to see you here with me
and I want to tell you what you mean to me
but I'll save this, I'll save my breath this time
I think it's almost useless
we both know, we both saw the signs
still I am ASKING WHY
ASKING WHY

I think I'm falling
I think I'm falling inside
so is this story over or has it just begun
you can only wonder and we can only wonder
these days have been too much
I hate being stuck in the inbetween

means to an end
me taking your hand and moving us ahead
I wish that it could last
cuz I still feel our past
OUR PAST
will we ever feel this way again
means to and end

close my eyes and I'll be dreaming away
if things were different I'd be able to say
I'm still here
but I'm still here
RE-THINKING MY DECISIONS
OUR DISTANCE, SEPARATION
and I'm still here


8. Bright Lights Keep Shining

from the start of the day
to the end of the race
we thought we had this all figured out
without a moment to waste
but we choke, we choke on our words
we waste all of our days
throw off another year
living our lives is our greatest fear

from being useless to being used
we lie awake wondering why another year is wasted
another chance to live PASSED BY US
this on the tip of our tongues
the silence of our lives
but this flame keeps burning
we'll never lay down and die

this isn't hopeless
this isn't hopeless
we'll keep on fighting until the bitter end
this isn't hopeless
this isn't hopeless
we'll carry on

forget about the boundaries
we'll leave the past behind
with every step we take
we'll finally redefine
WE'LL CARRY ON

we are the bright lights
let's not stop shining
this life will always be worth living

from the start of the day
to the end of the race
we thought we had this all figured out
without a moment to waste
WE'LL HAVE OUR WAY
WE'LL HAVE OUR WAY
WE'LL HAVE OUR WAY
we'll have our way!


9. Falling Apart

right now I'm feeling useless
it's all the same
it's all the same to me
this curse is growing stronger
this isn't how I thought it would be now
I would pave the way
but I've got nothing to say
thinking out loud
who do you want me to be me

we saw, WE HAD A VISION
we heard, BUT DIDN'T LISTEN
I never could accept
what they would offer
what they would offer
what they would give

my battle's not against you
I'm fighting with myself
because I'm pulled in each direction
they're all the same with different names
falling apart (fall down fall)
falling apart (fall down fall)
falling apart (fall down fall)
FALLING APART

we can't pretend
we can't pretend
that we've ever been safe
can you hear the sound
believe
believe
BELIEVE

find your reasons beyond
feed the urge, take it beyond
BELIEVE
find your reasons beyond
feed the urge, take it beyond


10. Losing Patience

I was looking forward to this day for so long
I had it all planned out
I was hoping it'd all work out
I was losing patience
you know it's never been my best trait
counting minutes, hours, counting days

then it dawned on me
unpredictabilty
I told myself everything's just fine
you worry too much, it's gonna eat you alive

I was looking forward to this day for so long
I had it all planned out
I was hoping that it would all work out
would all work out

now I feel exposed
like a black light on the wall
in a darkened room
all the dirt appears
you can see my fears
I don't want to let my guard down

you know I never had the feeling
that you would prey on my insecurities
because I never had the feeling
that you would prey on these insecurities I have

why is this wait taking so long
why is this wait taking so long
counting minutes, hours, counting days
I'm losing patience

don't think this means I'm walking away
don't think this means I'm walking
I won't let fear get the best of me
now it's up to me, I wouldn't change a thing
I won't let fear get the best of me
DON'T THINK THIS MEANS I'M WALKING AWAY
now it's up to me, I wouldn't change a thing
DON'T THINK THIS MEANS I'M WALKING AWAY


11. Final Goodbye

THIS IS MY FINAL GOODBYE
now I can say it's real
and I can feel the pain
all I do is reason
I wanna change things but I don't have a say

SCREAMING EXPECTATIONS
they've got me by the throat
I'd rather die than bleed
let's forget those things we said

can we erase from our minds
the agony of uncertainty IN OUR LIVES
well I've seen it come and go
and I've had the time
I've had the time of my life
ALL THIS
WITH YOU

trying to be strong
and I've seen the time
I've seen the time go so fast
ALL THIS
WITH YOU

THIS IS MY FINAL GOODBYE
my final goodbye

I'd rather die than bleed
let's forget the things we said
I'd rather die than bleed
let's forget the things we said
I'd rather let this die than bleed
the sun has set but still
here I am, I can't forget (CAN'T FORGET)
I'd rather let this die than bleed
the sun has set but still
here I am, you know I can't forget
