1. NO REMORSE, NO REGRETS

This is all too much to deal with, there is no clear path
As we fall to pieces everything erodes
And I won't just stand here for nothing
My hands hold on to the rags that we have left
Maybe I'm just scared of the distance from everyone I love
It's not easy, but then nothing good never is
Seven of the longest years have lead to the greatest moments of my life
I'm not falling apart, I'm not falling apart
Appreciate the moments that are bad, because they will show everything else for what it really is
Truth be told I love this so fucking much
Honestly, I cannot think anywhere that I would rather be
I know there'll be hard times, but together we can pull through the darkest sky
Moving forwards we will hold on and we will never lose our grip
Even if I've fallen I will get up and unbroken I will say
I'm not falling apart, I'm not falling apart
We're not falling apart
Hold my arms, never look back, I won't forget
And I hardly feel the stress around me, but it's not the end
But then all this time I never saw the light
And I will never look back and regret a single moment of this amazing thing.


2. A NEW LEGACY

I will take this moment with me to the end, to the withered light
And I won't break like you hoped I would
A lost cause to want out.

Fractured breathing won't last
Always hoping for the best
Your intentions were never as good as our dream.

I want everyone to know just how hard this is to keep on through the rain
And I won't be, be reminded of the blackest nights and bleakest days I know.

Fractured breathing won't last
Always hoping for the best
Your intentions were never as good as our dream.

The darkest nights don't break our cause
The pride we hold to lose will not fall
The darkest nights don't change our hearts
Are we holding our breath? We're not breaking our hold.

Withered heart to break through the dark, x2
(Give me strength to fight back, to carry on).


3. VIII

I can't be open if you are in the way
Another chance has just passed us by
If you can't take on the role how can you expect us to move?
Your mistakes are too great to count

But I won't fall for any of your vows
You're falling apart
And I won't break for any of your tears
You're falling apart

I won't be able to scream louder
If I could I'd be able to say:
You're not capable of progress
You cannot illuminate the path

Mistakes surrounding you, mistakes engulfing us
We cannot make this alone
Pull out defences and let it in
The water's crashing down

But I won't fall for any of your vows
You're falling apart
And I won't break for any of your tears
You're falling apart

I won't be able to scream louder
If I could I'd be able to say:
You're not capable of progress
You cannot illuminate the path

Thread bare; things won't move
Will you even care?
This bad dispute
You can only fall down.


4. IT RAINS DOWN

I once thought that I would know the time just to give it up
You hold more than you think you do
but you're letting go the best thing you have
But you don't hold on

And breaking hold doesn't last
If all the times we let it drop
we didn't die just a little bit
The things we love the most
But you break once it settles down
You hurt, and you hate the thought of 'never again'
You said you wouldn't break
But you hold onto the light that's left

It rains down
but you take the chance
or you just regret that you gave it up
So you just hold on

And I won't be able to let this die
I can't just forget this moment in my life
And I won't be made to lose the light
I don't want to forget, to live with regret

Lost; you couldn't change how the morals fail
You couldn't change how we fall
I hate to be the one to watch if we fade away.


5. THE WAVES AND THE SEAS

Taking back what we couldn't see
through the smoke as the edges fall
But we never have a clear route to choose
and now we have only one
Broken light filters through the cracks
It's all the future has ever offered us
But we don't need faith
as we fall from the sun we collide

All paths lead to the grave
This won't be the end
We're stuck in this lonely abyss
where's the other side?
And we don't hold back
as we push through the waves and the seas
Never good enough for them
It was never as hard for them all
But if only we could push through these waves
We fall from the sun, we collide

Fate fortunes the brave
the harder you fight; less to regret
Hopeless and shaking; take my hand

You don't take sides
it's frozen; a lasting abyss
The winds pull down a faultless clear sky
You can't take the glow and beauty away
The direction is ablaze
You don't take sides
it's frozen; a lasting abyss
With the clarity of moments passed
We can take the mountains as they come
Take my hand

Fate holds fortune for the brave.


6. SORROW PLAGUES

For the ones that reach out not to fall
It will tear them apart to know how the light fades
We'll lose our grasp
But the worthless are saved
The reasons crumble to the floor
ash to ash, dust to dust
No perspective on life
We lose our grasp, we lose our grasp
Just hanging by a thread
we'll take our chances
Even though I'm a wreck I'll keep on fighting until the end
I cannot say a word
I am left breathless
How can we live when knowing we lose the ones that we love?
Walking the divided lines that lead us through
They cross through our hearts
Life is so cruel when it knocks us down
I don't see what you live for
You are taking the best part of your life and just throwing it away
I don't think that you're drifting apart
I don't think I've been hiding away
There's something to live for

There's no promises kept
Dig deeper into our hearts
The loss is hard, the truth is sharper
Sorrow breaks down the highest star
It moves our lives, it makes us stronger
Dig deeper into our hearts
The loss is hard, the truth is sharper
I don't care if the odds are bleak
You take the chance or live in remorse

You're breaking off; the pain is too much
You're hidng the fragile parts of your life
There's no shame in sharing your pain
We all hide the fragile parts of our lives

SORROW LIVES inside our hearts
SORROW BREAKS the depths of our weakened souls.


7. TIME AND PRESSURE

The passing of our time; we borrowed our own fate
You hurt for nothing in your own mind
The walls are closing in and I can hardly breathe
You cannot hold onto my soul, bearing down

My heart grows darker, my arms grow weak
and I won't be able to see
No matter what they say
they can't explain, they cannot see my eyes
While hiding what I have left you'll be my light
My arms grow weak, my arms grow weak

Lost; my heart grows darker
I set my sights too high
How can you think with the truth ablaze
Making up an excuse to rationale the wrong
Your lack of thought will not break me down
But you don't even realize the cost

You take my arms, you take my light
You don't know how this feels to be so alone
You take too long to see that this is wrong
Just ignore all the sleepless nights
we'll break them all.


8. SALVATION LIES WITHIN

A barren lining in the darkness
A weakness in our lives
The shade of dusk can make us feel alone

Hopeless shaking in the dark clouds
You open up my eyes
You hold me up to understand
You say, "hold on, hold on"

Your open arms will shield the winter
You open up my eyes
Without despair we hold the path
You say "hold on, hold on"

But I can hardly see the vacant expression in their eyes
I'm not losing all the things that ever mattered to me

Hopeful moving through the cold light
You've opened my eyes
The mist will be clearing and the light will shine through.


9. CRUSADER

Hate; the only thing that moved inside of you
A blind crusade that we all knew would fall apart
You do not think; you only resist
You're losing the ones that once stood by your side
You're losing your friends
You're losing your trust
You're losing the ones who ever cared for you

I will not forget the past
because it hurt; it made me stronger
You will just avoid the truth
before you know it all will collapse
You take control
No thought; chasing a war
Can't say we all played a part in this
You have yourself
You don't take in a thing we say
believing that we're all fine
The truth is that you're losing ground
Because the higher you climb the further you fall

And I'll be able to see a fountain of my memories unfold
You said you won't, but I don't believe
And I will not go until we search through our own souls

Open the door to yourself, to us all
If we hold the weight of all our mistakes
we'd hide inside ourselves and be alone
You did it before
And we've borrowed time that's fallen from the outer sides of our thoughts
And we've burnt all our ties
With your life ablaze you won't concede
A product of the same decay of your world
But you've never tried to see

And I'll be able to see a fountain of my memories unfold
You said you won't, but I don't believe
While all the time that you've spent on all the bad times that you have lived
But I hope you'll see; believe this was for the best.


10. THE VERGE

I won't feel the rain
the falling sorrow that guides our lives
Hope will only take you so far
through the darkness and into the light

Our intentions eroding
But what is the point of all this caring
if all the roads are broken
if all the paths lead to one place
The problem isn't what we could have done
but what we do now

I won't feel the rain
the falling sorrow that guides our lives
Hope will only take you so far
through the darkness and into the light
Into the light

Paths - restraining me
Hope - forever
Light - show me the way.


11. END OF DAYS

The broken rules to wipe this from us
You're taking our souls
You're killing our dreams
You're telling me how hard it's for you
You haven't a clue
We did this all ourselves
The morning sun brings nothing but cold
An empty gesture to a hopeless man
Try living our lives
What could you know of progress?
You barely even think
Our dreams are a shattered curse

What's changed now?
You'll take it from me, you'll pull me down
A hand held out
You'll never leave us alone
So what's changed now?
You never listen, you never try
You sink your joys
You're making my prospect so bleak

The loneliest sun, the loneliest day
The loneliest life, the loneliest life
All I see is an open grave with our names on the stone
You're moving the dirt, you're burying the hopeful

What's changed now?
You'll take it from me, you'll pull me down
A hand held out
You'll never leave us alone
So what's changed now?
You never listen, you never try
You sink your joys
You're making my prosepect so bleak

I will never escape from your grasp
You're leaving us to the sharks
You're sitting in silence to watch us fall
A moment of promise lost for good
You're sitting in silence to watch us fall
We're all going to sink

The end of days approach faster than we would have hoped
Your arms are folded; a last reminder
Living in a ghost town; what can I do?
A mocking blow to floor us; we won't forget
The problem is you

-

Rain pours down; what can I do?
I'm not giving up
I'm not breaking our promise, I'm not alone
The rain pours down; but what can I do?
I'm not giving up
I'm not falling apart, I'm not letting go
The rain pours down; but what can I do?
I'm not giving up
I'm not letting this hurt me, I won't run
The rain pours down; but what can I do?
We will never resent this
Even if we were to fail
this was all worth every second
Light shines down in every moment
Even when we're knocked down
the journey is not a lost cause
Light shines down in every moment
Pulling your hopes and dreams
kicking and screaming
You'll never regret; not even a second
Light shines down in every moment.
