1. I KEEP MY SECRETS SAFE

Keep me a secret

So tell me why you've come here to bend and break
I know that you have made the same mistake
Just shut your eyes to leave
This world of sound it's floating away
and I don't know why

You keep yourself so tightly wound, it's about time you break
It's not enough, my foolish words will never...

I keep my secrets safe
I keep them hidden away from you
Like an anchor stuck to the bottom
I know my secret's safe
I know it's hidden away from you
Like an anchor stuck to the bottom

And I have always been the same
You know that I will clean up your mistakes
Just tell me you've found a way to stop believing
Everything you say is a lie

You keep yourself so tightly wound, it's about time you break
It's not enough, my foolish words will never...

I keep my secrets safe
I keep them hidden away from you
Like an anchor stuck to the bottom
I know my secret's safe
I know it's hidden away from you
Like an anchor stuck to the bottom

I never had the faith to pick myself up
Come down and take me
I never had the faith to pick myself up
Breathe in, breathe out
Like a magnet, you keep pulling me closer
I want it all to end like this
I was stagnant
Then you entered my life and held it in your hands

(oh, you'll never know)

I keep my secrets safe
I keep them hidden away from you
Like an anchor stuck to the bottom
I know my secret's safe
I know it's hidden away from you

Is this the end of myself?
Is this the end? (Is this the end?)
Is this the end of myself?
Is this the end? (Is this the end?)
This is the end of myself
This is the end


2. DEEP DOWN

I’m seeing the ocean is rising
Let the water wash it all away
Feel like there’s never tomorrow
When there’s no escaping yesterday
Do you ever miss that feeling?
Don’t pretend like you’re the one who’s lost
I can see the ocean is rising
And I keep sinking

Deep down
It’s getting hard to breathe now
I’m reaching out to touch you
And I can’t feel at all
No I can’t feel at all

I watch the waves from underwater
See the ocean push you all the way
Live like there’s no today
Do you ever get that feeling
You’re the only one who ever pays a cost
Well I’m just as lost

Deep down
It’s getting hard to breathe now
I’m reaching out to touch you
And I can’t feel at all
Deep down
It’s getting hard to breathe now
I’m reaching out to touch you
And I can’t feel at all
No I can’t feel at all

Save yourself, if nothing else
You should save yourself, if nothing else
Save yourself, if nothing else
You should save yourself, if nothing else

The oceans rise above me
Will the water help me find my way
Wash it away

Deep down
It’s getting hard to breathe now
I’m reaching out to touch you
And I can’t feel at all
Deep down
It’s getting hard to breathe now
I’m reaching out to touch you
And I can’t feel at all
No I can’t feel at all


3. WHY CAN'T YOU SEE?

If we've got something going tell me why is he here?
You leave me hanging by a thread when the lion is near.

I'm not about to drop the ball
You clearly cannot say

Why can't you see with my hands holding your eyes open
It's hard for me to think straight when your mouth is moving.

You could have been all I wanted and all that I need.
But you had to leave cause it's easy to fall in love with machines

I'm not about to drop the ball
You clearly cannot say

Why can't you see with my hands holding your eyes open
It's hard for me to think straight when your mouth is moving.
(x2)

Go away. No please stay.
Go away. You'll stay. Stay away.
(x2)

Why can't you see with my hands holding your eyes open
It's hard for me to think straight when your mouth is moving.
Shut up, sit down, find your way out just leave me alone.
You cant make me believe that you have changed at all.


4. CHANGING

You fall apart each time you start to say goodbye
But there is nobody watching
(nobody watching)
You've lost your grip, you start to slip but don't know why
And this is just the beginning
(just the beginning)
You had the hopes to make it last, it's moving fast
And now you're realizing
(realizing)
That in the past the dreams you had make people feel
Like you were just reciting
(just reciting)

Bathing in the afterglow
A chance at luck and pride
Where we end up we can never know
And all I know is we seem to be

Changing, better to turn and walk away
Fading, all these lights just turn to grey
Changing, better to turn and walk away
But the strange thing
Is that I don't feel a thing

This is an act, stop holding back the things you lost
Cannot replace what's missing
(replace what's missing)
And from the start you played the part and now your heart's
Become a great deception

Bathing in the afterglow
A chance at luck and pride
When we end up we can never know
All I know is we seem to be

Changing, better to turn and walk away
Fading, all these lights just turn to grey
Changing, better to turn and walk away
But the strange thing
Is that I don't feel a thing

One last breath to say goodbye
I tell myself another lie
Stripped of all I hold so dear
The moment's lost and I am sinking down lower
I drown myself in the water
And I am watching my life pass before my eyes
It comes as no surprise

You fall apart and then you stop
You fall apart and then you stop
You fall apart and then you ..
Stop!

Changing, better to turn and walk away
Fading, all these lights just turn to grey
Now I'm changing, better to turn and walk away
But the strange thing
Is that I don't feel a thing

You fall apart and then you stop
You fall apart and then you stop
You fall apart and then you ..
Stop!


5. ON MY OWN

(Just say, say it ain't so...)

Just say, say it ain't so.
This is not the home that I know. (That I know)
I never thought I'd let you down
Never thought I'd let you down
You promised, promised not to let me drown.

In my daydreams, you take over me.
In these daydreams, you take over me.

Can I make it on my own?
Will I ever feel my limbs again?
Is this all in my mind?
Can I make it on my own?
Will I ever feel that way again?
Am I losing my mind?

No way, it's not the same.
This place has had it's way.
I swore to never let you down
I never thought I'd let you down.
I'm sorry, I'm sorry that I let you drown.

In my daydreams, you take over me.
In these daydreams, you take over me.

Can I make it on my own?
Will I ever feel my limbs again?
Is this all in my mind?
Can I make it on my own?
Will I ever feel that way again?
Am I losing my mind?
Am I losing my mind?

Something's always pulling me under ground.

Is there something staring back at me?
Is there something waiting there for me?
But there never really was,
No, there never really was,
(Something's always pulling me under ground)
And there never really was,
(Something's always pulling me under)

Will my daydreams take over me?
Will these daydreams take over me?

Can I make it on my own?
Will I ever feel my limbs again?
Is this all in my mind?
Can I make it on my own?
Will I ever feel that way again?
Am I losing my mind?

Something's always pulling me under...

Open your eyes, tell me why.
Open your eyes, you shall see it.
Open your eyes, tell me why.
Open your eyes, you still sleep with it.

Open your eyes. (x6)


6. THE ALARMING SOUND OF A STILL SMALL VOICE

I knew I never deserved you
I just felt so high in size
I move along, I shuffled in place then
Back hand and you're pulling me in
Will I ever find anyone
Who makes me feel like I've been lost somewhere
Now it's morning, it's over, now it's over

Am I right where I need to be
Or is this another distraction
Is this how I'm supposed to feel
I've been trying to let go
Is there a change you need to see
Or is this another disaster
Tell me how I'm supposed to feel
I've been trying to let go

No this is never what I wanted
Never what I thought I'd signed up for
And I keep moving away
To the edge then I'll decide whether to jump or stay asleep
Sometimes the leap of faith is all we have
Why won't you tell me

Am I right where I need to be
Or is this another distraction
Is this how I'm supposed to feel
I've been trying to let go
Is there a change you need to see
Or is this another disaster
Tell me how I'm supposed to feel
I've been trying to let go

Why won't you wake up
Wake up, nobody's sleeping anymore
And I've had enough of the ground
Made my escape, fell in love with the sound
And I'll pound my fist till you wake up
So why aren't you waking up

And the sun is coming
And the sun is coming out
I can't hide here anymore, no
The sun is coming out

Am I right where I need to be
Or is this another distraction
Is this how I'm supposed to feel
I've been trying to let go
Is there a change you need to see
Or is this another disaster
Tell me how I'm supposed to feel
I've been trying to let go

Why don't you wake up


7. SAY GOODBYE

You seem so disappointed within,
this act of yours is just a sin.
You know it's so easy to tell you, "abuse it."
Don't tell me you're useless...
They told me your happy now.

I can't keep holding you up.
I'm overcome by the weight of the mud.
Drying up around you.
You know I'll never forget you.

I can't keep holding you up.
Tell me if you ever stop.

I'll never forget you, oh no.
I'll never forget you.

Say goodbye. It's all you wanted.
Let's hope Hollywood cares
I'll open the lens up so you all can
Say goodbye. It's all you wanted.
Let's hope somebody cares.
You'll see that nobody's watching.

Tell me why you wanted to change.
Tell me why you're so nervous to say
what you're really thinking.
The feeling of sinking is setting in.
You used to be so much happier.

I can't keep holding you up.
I'm overcome by the weight of the mud.
Drying up around you.
You know I'll never forget you.

I can't keep holding you up.
Tell me if you ever stop.

I'll never forget you, oh no.
I'll never forget you.

Say goodbye. It's all you wanted.
Let's hope Hollywood cares
I'll open the lens up so you all can
Say goodbye. It's all you wanted.
Let's hope somebody cares.
You'll see that nobody's watching.

You can't turn away.
Make up your face and get high.
Make up your face and get high again.
You can't turn away.
Make up your face and get high.
Make up your face and get high again.

'Cause when you sign your deal,
you're as good as dead.

Say goodbye. It's all you wanted.
Let's hope Hollywood cares
I'll open the lens up so you all can
Say goodbye. It's all you wanted.
Let's hope somebody cares.
You'll see that nobody's watching.


8. THE WORST OF ME

Run away and play your games
Hide real well so I can't find you
I will wait for summer to come
Then laugh as the trees burn down around you
Your body was just a test for me
if I run as fast as I can
The thought of your memory
Will catch up with me, will catch up with me

I'm always late with my words
(I tried so hard, I tried so hard)
Should have told you, but I never really cared
(You always misled me)
I'm always late with my words
(I tried so hard, I tried so hard)
Should have told you, but I never really cared
(You always misled me)

You always got the worst of me...

It's a shame, but you're still lying broken here
In this moment, everything just seems so clear
Because her body was just a test, you see
If you run as fast as you can
With the thought of my memory (thought of your memory)
Will catch up to me
Will catch up, you see

I'm always late with my words
(I tried so hard, I tried so hard)
Should have told you, but I never really cared
(You always misled me)
I'm always late with my words
(I tried so hard, I tried so hard)
Should have told you, but I never really cared at all

When summer passes, I'll let go
And if you don't feel me, just dig yourself out
When summer passes, let me know
So I can find a meaning to live

I'm always late with my words
(I tried so hard, I tried so hard)
Should have told you, but I never really cared
(You always misled me)
I'm always late with my words
(I tried so hard, I tried so hard)
Should have told you, but I never really cared
(You always misled me)

You always got the worst of me...


9. IT'S ALL OVER NOW

Leave, go on and leave, you said
Turn and walk away
Life's not worth it anymore
You stopped shaking and you slowly faded away
Now you're lying on the floor

I can't hear your heart beating anymore, no
I can't hear your heart beating anymore, no

It's all over now
What am I gonna do with all this time I set aside for you (aside for you)
I won't be needed now
To pick up the phone and call you
Like I'm supposed to know
You were all alone

Gone, memories gone
I know I was the one
Who was ignoring you for way too long
I hope while sleeping
I know that if you're finding solid ground
You'll know everything is, everything is sound

I can't hear your heart beating anymore, now (everything is sound)
I can't hear your heart beating anymore, now

It's all over now
What am I gonna do with all this time I set aside for you (aside for you)
I won't be needed now
To pick up the phone and call you
Like I'm supposed to know
You were all alone

Over now, over now
Maybe someday I can meet you there

It's all over now
What am I gonna do
What am I gonna do

It's all over now
What am I gonna do with all this time I set aside for you
I won't be needed now
To pick up the phone and call you
Like I'm supposed to know
No I won't be needed now
To pick up the phone and call you
Like I'm supposed to know
You were all alone


10. WHAT WERE WE MADE FOR?

I imagine we were made, I imagine we were made,
I imagine we were made, I imagine we were...

Woke up again, sweating out all the pores.
And then I feel it again, I know it's coming again.
So I try to make it for an hour or two.
But I know in the end, I know in the end...

This place will hit me so hard.
This face will end up so hard.
Because of you.
It's all because of you

I can't carry this all, I can't carry this on my own
Tell me what did I do wrong?
'Cause I don't remember anything
And I can't carry this all, I can't carry this on my own
Tell me what did I do wrong?
'Cause I can't remember anything

Feels like a bomb going off in my conscious.
and I feel it again, I think it's coming again
How can I run away from all of the sadness?
When no ones around to tell me where to begin.

These steps I climb up so hard.
Your voice will hit me so hard.
Because of you.
It's always because of you.

I can't carry this all, I can't carry this on my own
Tell me what did I do wrong?
'Cause I don't remember anything
And I can't carry this all, I can't carry this on my own
Tell me what did I do wrong?
'Cause I can't remember anything

Now I know the hardest part is letting go (I can't let you go).
I just cannot be afraid of what's below.

I can't carry this all, I can't carry this on my own
Tell me what did I do wrong?
'Cause I don't remember anything
And I can't carry this all, I can't carry this on my own
Tell me what did I do wrong?
'Cause I can't remember anything (can't remember anything).

And you can't carry this all, I can't carry this on my own
Tell me what did I do wrong?
I just can't remember anything.

I imagine we were made.
I imagine we were made.
I imagine we were made.
I imagine we were made for...


11. IS THIS REAL?

Time's runnin' out and I have been betrayed
Gotta cast my stone into the lake (it didn't work, I didn't feel it sink in)
That's all it takes my son then you are safe
When the end comes, everything's okay (we take it back, you take it away)

Take my skin, we're diving in
It doesn't make a difference if I sink or swim
Theres a line drawn thin or so they tell me
I'll never know the difference if we..sink or swim!

Is it real, the choices that we make (is it real)
The smiles that we fake (is it real)
I know it hurts but is it real
The choices that we make
The smiles that we fake for my own sake
I know it hurts but is it...

I can't help feelin' like I've been betrayed
Shoulda cast that stone into the lake (stone into the lake)
Chased in the wrong direction, led astray
And I know you don't believe a single word you say (I can't believe that you can)

Take my skin, we're diving in (we're diving in)
It doesn't make a difference if I sink or swim
Theres a line drawn thin or so they tell me
I'll never know the difference if we..sink or swim!

Is it real, the choices that we make (is it real)
The smiles that we fake (is it real)
I know it hurts but is it real
The choices that we make (is it real)
The smiles that we fake for my own sake
I know it hurts but is this..real...is this real

I don't want to buy into the lie
Stare up at the sky but is it real?
Show me somethin' real.
I don't want to buy into your lies
Stare up at the sky and say "I surrender myself for this,
I'll take the blame (I'll take the blame)
I surrender myself for this, I'll take the blame (oh oh..)

For peace or war, for rich or poor
For loss, for gain, for everything that I loved
I see, I feel, I've become one with words not real to me
So I'll stare in silence
Forward, backwards
Just to realize we all fall..down

Is it real, the choices that we make (is it real)
The smiles that we fake (is it real)
Just tell me is this real (is it real)
The choices that we make (is it real)
The smiles that we fake for my own sake
I know it hurts but is this..real...is this real
Is it real
I need to know, is this real


12. NOTHING IS WHAT IT SEEMS (WITHOUT YOU)

You look like you’re letting go
I know that you won’t call on me
You look like you’re letting go
I know what my instincts are telling me
And you’re fading out
It’s so hard without you
This wasn’t my fault

Tell me how am I supposed to live without you
This is all that I remember before you changed
You’re stuck in the dream with next to nothing
I’m all alone and nothings what it seems
Without you next to me

Sometimes it feels like home
So safe in the shade
But when the summer fades
There’s always something missing
And now that I’m on my own
I know why you just
Just couldn’t stop
And why you had to leave
It’s so hard, without you
This wasn’t my fault

Tell me how am I supposed to live without you
This is all that I remember before you changed
You’re stuck in the dream with next to nothing
I’m all alone and nothings what it seems
Without you next to me

I never imagined I would feel so lost
I never imagined it would be so hard
I never imagined I would feel so lost
I never imagined this would be so hard

Tell me how am I supposed to live without you
This is all that I remember before you changed
You’re stuck in the dream with next to nothing
I’m all alone and nothings what it seems
Without you next to me

Tell me how am I supposed to live without you
This is all that I remember before you changed
You’re stuck in the dream with next to nothing
I’m all alone and nothings what it seems
Without you next to me

Tell me how am I supposed to live without you
Tell me how am I supposed to live without you


13. FIREFLIES (LIGHT MESSENGERS)

Sinking I've fallen in too deep and I regret it
I don't know is all we have left to say
How do we pick ourselves up now
If the clouds bring the rain before we evaporate

I'll never be able to say
I love you I love you I love you

Stay bright little fireflies
Make light before my eyes
Stay bright little fireflies
Make light before my eyes

Thinking
About all of my regrets and contradictions
Where did I go I thought this was the right way
Do I live to grow up now
Or just fade away under this tree of shame

Or will I be able to say
I love you I love you

Stay bright little fireflies
Make light before my eyes
Stay bright little fireflies
Make light before my eyes

And all you do and all you say
Washes away away with the rain
And all you thought would never change
Washes away It'll never be the same
Cause all I see and
All I feel takes me away takes me away

And all you do and all you say
Washes away away with the rain
And all you thought (how could have know)
I'll never change (how could have changed)
Washes away It'll never be the same

Stay bright little fireflies
Make light before my eyes

Stay bright little fireflies
Make light before my eyes
Stay bright little fireflies
Make light before my eyes

Wish I could love you
And I don't regret the rain
And now that I'm sinking
I will just say goodbye


BONUSTRACKS

14. YOU NEVER NOTICED ME

Yeah!
I don't feel the same I wish I knew something would happen
She said you'll never understand
They don't treat you the way that they treat me
They treat you different
Now I wish I'd never been

Cause I can't breathe
No I can't see

You never noticed
You never noticed me
I'm out of time and left behind I'm a stranger in my mind
You never noticed
You never noticed me
'Til I locked myself inside my room I'm a stranger in my home

I don't wanna drive cause i don't know where I am going
Get me out of here they don't seem to care
I think you need a place to go
and hide and push rewind and let this all be over (Let this all be over)
Tell me this will be okay, is everything alright?

Cause I can't breathe
No I can't see

You never noticed
You never noticed me
I'm out of time and left behind I'm a stranger in my mind
You never noticed
You never noticed me
'Til I locked myself inside my room I'm a stranger in my home
Stranger in my home
Yeah!

Oh, Oh
Fall asleep let the memories fade
Until you wanna cry (Close your eyes, close your eyes)
Close your eyes let the melody play and fall into rhythm

You never noticed
You never noticed me
I'm out of time and left behind I'm a stranger in my mind
You never noticed
You never noticed me
I'm out of time and left behind I'm a stranger in my mind
Stranger in my mind

Oh!


14. BURY ME

Engine take me home
My blood is poison now
Am I too far beneath the surface
To replace this heart

I was almost there
I never had a care
Just when I hit the ground running
You set me up to fall in quicksand
I'll never get out

Bury me
Yes, burying me
When nothing's left at all
And everything we know is gone
Bury me
Oh, bury me
When nothing's left at all
And everything we know is gone

Lost in this storming state of mind
When I close my eyes tonight
No rhyme, no real reason why
To replace this heart

I don't feel like I'll ever make it
Out alive (running out of time)
Now I'm sinking in quicksand
I'll never get out

Bury me
Yes, burying me
When nothing's left at all
And everything we know is gone
Bury me
Oh, bury me
When nothing's left at all
And everything we know is gone

Can I remember
Close to anything?
Nothing left
Nothing left

Can I remember
Close to anything?
Nothing at all
Nothing here...
Never get out

Bury me
Yes, burying me
When nothing's left at all
And everything we know is gone
Bury me
Oh, bury me
When nothing's left at all
And everything we know is gone
Everything is gone
Everything is gone
Everything is gone

Gone!
I'll have what it takes
I'll have what I have
