1. THE DREAM

Whisper in the yard and turn the trees all into toys
Lay there on the ground, and turn the dirt into your joy
From what I see and what I know, it's all been boring lately
So I suggest we trade a question mark in for a maybe
Time your riddles right, and make a point that has no sense
Make sure that you're smiling, and the money's been well spent
Innocence and ignorance, it all goes hand in hand
I'm not sure that I'm right, but I hope you'll understand
I hope that you're still searching for the start that has no end
And all the plastic people have now become your friends
Before you start to drift and your soul begins to strain
I just wanted to tell you that you're listening to a dream


2. HEROES

Stare in wonder, who's here to bring you down?
Find your martyr, I'm sure you've made the crown
So light a fire under my bones, so when
I die for you, at least I'll die alone

Ain't nothing for me to end up like this
There's no comparing me this time

All my heroes have now become ghosts
Sold their sorrow to the ones who paid the most
All my heroes are dead and gone
But they're inside of me, they still live on

Dark devotion in a beacon paradise
Shows no emotion to a willing sacrifice
You can put a man on trial, but you can't make the guilty pay
And you can cage an animal, but you can't take away the rage

Ain't nothing for me to end up like this
There's no comparing me this time

All my heroes have now become ghosts
Sold their sorrow to the ones who paid the most
All my heroes are dead and gone
But they're inside of me, they still live on

All my heroes have now become ghosts
Sold their sorrow to the ones who paid the most
All my heroes are dead and gone
But they're inside of me, they still live on
They're all dead and gone


3. SAVE ME

I got a candle
And I've got a spoon
I live in a hallway with no doors
And no rooms

Under a windowsill
They all were found
A touch of concrete within the doorway
Without a sound

Someone save me if you will
And take away all these pills
And please just save me if you can
From the blasphemy in my wasteland

How did I get here
And what went wrong
Couldn't handle forgiveness
Now I'm far beyond gone

I can hardly remember
The look of my own eyes
How can I love this a life so dishonest
It made me compromise

Someone save me if you will
And take away all these pills
And please just save me if you can
From the blasphemy in my wasteland

Jump in the water
Jump in with me
Jump on the alter
Lay down with me

The hardest question to answer
Is why

Why

Someone save me if you will
And take away all these pills
And please just save me if you can
From the blasphemy in my wasteland

Someone save me
Someone save me
Somebody save me
Somebody save me
Please don't erase me


4. I DARE YOU

Hello, let me introduce you to
The characters in the show
One says yes, one says no
Decide - which voice in your head you can keep alive

Even in madness, I know you still believe
Paint me your canvas so I become
What you could never be

I dare you to tell me to walk through the fire
Brand my soul and call me a liar
I dare you to tell me to walk through the fire
I dare you to tell me
I dare you to

Hello, are you still chasing
The memories in shadows
Some stay young, some grow old
Come alive, there are thoughts unclear
You can never hide

Even in madness, I know you still believe
Paint me your canvas so I become
What you could never be

I dare you to tell me to walk through the fire
Brand my soul and call me a liar
I dare you to tell me to walk through the fire
I dare you to tell me
I dare you to

Hello
Hello...
I dare you to tell me to walk through the fire
Brand my soul and call me a liar
I dare you to tell me to walk through the fire
I dare you to tell me
I dare you to
Hello...
Hello...
I dare you to tell me
I dare you to
I dare you to tell me
I dare you to


5. YER MAJESTY

Come closer inside
There's something I need you to see
It's just a picture of what the ignorant believe
I come so you can know me
I'm here to make you proud
I come to wreck and guide you
I'm here to show you how

You know I'm coming for you
Cause I got nothing to lose
And now I'm still on my way for the pay

So you wanted to be free from everything you've done to me?
And you wanted to be known so you wouldn't feel so alone?
And you wanted to believe that you steal our integrity?
And I'm sorry you're on your knees, but you can't blame me, yer majesty

Let's take a moment
I need to spoil who you are
I played your game once
You sold me out with no regard
I come so you can know me
I'm here to make you proud
I come to wreck and guide you
I'm here to voice out loud

You know I'm coming for you
Cause I got nothing to lose
And now I'm still on my way for the pay

So you wanted to be free from everything you've done to me?
And you wanted to be known so you wouldn't feel so alone?
And you wanted to believe that you steal our integrity?
And I'm sorry you're on your knees, but you can't blame me, yer majesty

So you wanted to be free from everything you've done to me?
And you wanted to be known so you wouldn't feel so alone?
And you wanted to believe that you steal our integrity?


6. BEYOND THE SUN

Speak to me
So I can understand your tongue
You seem rather fragile
It's been said
It's cold beyond the sun
Have you ever been there?

Communicating thoughts of ways
To never have to speak again
Let me be the fire in your head

Bring what's yours, I'll take what's mine
And meet you on the other side
We'll leave a sun so anyone can find us
A better place, a sweeter time
We won't need any wings to fly
A place beyond the sun

Look for me
The way you would if you were blind
Don't be so resistant
I've been known
To travel much too fast
Is that you in the distance?

Communicating thoughts of ways
To never have to speak again
Let me be the fire in your head

Bring what's yours, I'll take what's mine
And meet you on the other side
We'll leave a sun so anyone can find us
A better place, a sweeter time
We won't need any wings to fly
A place beyond the sun

Communicating thoughts of ways
To never have to speak again
Let me be the fire in your head

Bring what's yours, I'll take what's mine
And meet you on the other side
We'll leave a sun so anyone can find us
A better place, a sweeter time
We won't need any wings to fly
A place beyond the sun


7. TRADE YOURSELF IN

Deal with me
Don't even think about leaving yet
I'm not a part of some false regret
Even though I believe in fables
Come reset
A part of life that you'd soon forget
And maybe think about who you hurt
In the process

I don't think they know, that's my heart exposed
From the fearing of the endless lies

Trade yourself in for the perfect one
No one needs to know that you feel you've been ruined
Trade yourself in for diamond eyes
Watch the stars collide as you're lifted from your burden

You see me
And you know I am not the same
Can't pretend to just fake a smile
Cause you know I feel every ounce of
Pain combined
With the loss of a youthful mind
You need to look at what you've become
And try to figure out where you came from

I don't think they know, that's my heart exposed
From the fearing of the endless lies

Trade yourself in for the perfect one
No one needs to know that you feel you've been ruined
Trade yourself in for diamond eyes
Watch the stars collide as you're lifted from your burden

I know you can't feel a thing
It hurts to feel anymore

Trade yourself in for the perfect one
No one needs to know that you feel you've been ruined
Trade yourself in for diamond eyes
Watch the stars collide as you're lifted from your burden
Trade yourself in for the perfect one
No one needs to know that you feel you've been ruined
Trade yourself in for diamond eyes
Watch the stars collide as you're lifted from your burden


8. LADY SO DIVINE

In an earthquake, in main space
Where I fell into you
In a starlight, you look so bright
You eclipse the moon
On a highway, just today
That's where I saw you
It was music from a distance
Burning proof

She's here to rescue me
Clear my mind, and set me free
If it's dark, she still shines
A masterpiece made by design
She's here to rescue me
Stain my mind with make believe
If it's dark, she still shines
She's my lady, so divine
Lady so divine, come and change my name
Lady so divine

When the waves break, and the soul shake
Wreckage from the night
On a mountain is a story
Told a thousand times
Of a garden, and a bed there
Made to rest our eyes
There's a comfort to a softness
That will not be here tonight

She's here to rescue me
Clear my mind, and set me free
If it's dark, she still shines
A masterpiece made by design
She's here to rescue me
Stain my mind with make believe
If it's dark, she still shines
She's my lady, so divine
Lady so divine, come and change my name
Lady so divine

The midnight sun, she saves me
From what I've become
The midnight sun, she saves me
From what I have done
What I have done

She's here to rescue me
Clear my mind, and set me free
If it's dark, she still shines
A masterpiece made by design
She's come to rescue me
Stain my mind with make believe
If it's dark, she still shines
She's my lady, so divine
Divine!
Divine!
Divine!
She's my lady so divine
Divine!
She's my lady so divine
Lady so divine, come and change my mind
Lady so divine


9. SHED SOME LIGHT

I'm falling apart again
And I can't find a way to make amends
And I'm looking in both directions
But it's make believe, it's all pretend

So...
Shed some light on me
And hold me up in disbelief
And shed some light on me
And tell me something that I'll believe in

It's innocence within the maze
But I have chosen the wrong way
I'm still getting over who I was
There's no sense of trust, there's no definition of love

So...
Shed some light on me
And hold me up in disbelief
And shed some light on me
And tell me something that I'll believe in

I know now, it's not who you are
It's who you know
And I see clearly now, which way to go
I remember the way I fell from above
And I recall the way I was

So...
Shed some light on me
And hold me up in disbelief
And shed some light on me
And tell me something that I'll believe in
Shed some ling on me
And hold me up in disbelief
And shed some light on me
And tell me something that I'll believe
Tell me something that I'll...
Tell me something that I'll believe
Tell me something that I'll believe
Something I'll believe


10. BEGIN AGAIN

Welcome friends
To seconds lost, and to starts that won't begin
To twisted eyes that see inside
Rules that always bend
A simple task, a see-through mask
That questions where and why
We shared our skin to occupy, and keep our piece of mind

Bring only what you need to survive
They burn an image from lines on my face
They stole it from the pages that kept my place
I stand on the outside, would die to get in
I crawl inside just to begin again

It's so unfair
This broken smile that keeps us all aware
Of wishful thoughts, and scenes we lost
And times we'll never share
I'll ask you now to show me how
To fill the circle in
What tells us all?
There is no fall, and the story never ends

Bring only what you need to survive
They burn an image from lines on my face
They stole it from the pages that kept my place
I stand on the outside, would die to get in
I crawl inside just to begin again

They burn an image from lines on my face
They stole it from the pages that kept my place
I stand on the outside, would die to get in
I crawl inside just to begin again
They burn an image from lines on my face
They stole it from the pages that kept my place
I stand on the outside, would die to get in
I crawl inside just to begin again


11. ATMOSPHERE

Once I had a halo
But then it caught on fire
Once I knew a good man
But he turned into a liar
Once I saw a blind man
Still looking for his eyes
Once I met a bastard
Who watched his mama die

And now, I'll tell you how
I know them all

I'm looking down on the atmosphere
I'm took my number, and I waited in line
I'm not frail from the exposure
I'm taking pictures with my mind
I'm looking down on the atmosphere
I'm took my number, and I waited in line
I'm not frail from the exposure
I'm taking pictures with my mind

Once I met a leader
Born from genocide
Once I knew a preacher
To his grave, he said goodbye
Once I met a good girl
Who shows her face no more
It's hard to learn your lesson
When you become the whole world's whore

And now, I'll tell you how
I know them all

I'm looking down on the atmosphere
I'm took my number, and I waited in line
I'm not frail from the exposure
I'm taking pictures with my mind
I'm looking down on the atmosphere
I'm took my number, and I waited in line
I'm not frail from the exposure
I'm taking pictures with my mind

I'm looking down on the atmosphere
I'm looking down on the atmosphere
I know them all...

And now, I'll tell you how
I know them all
Looking down on the atmosphere
Looking down on the atmosphere
I took my number, and I wait in line
I'm looking down on the atmosphere


12. FAKE

This place has begun to cover me
I recall the light, but the dark smothers me
I prefer the feelings I know right now
I don't worry about feeling very proud

You don't know how it feels
To be misunderstood
To reach for the sky
I thought you never would
You don't know how it feels
To be misunderstood
To reach for the sky
I thought you never would

But I'm bleeding, and my hands are bruised
From the grip that I once had on you
And I'm open for a new way
Because there's not much more that I can fake

It's almost seeing your soul for the first time
And watching the mirror show you life in rewind
Capture the ridicule of everyone
I'm tired of trying, and they wonder why I'm gone

You don't know how it feels
To be misunderstood
To reach for the sky
I thought you never would
You don't know how it feels
To be misunderstood
To reach for the sky
I thought you never would

But I'm bleeding, and my hands are bruised
From the grip that I once had on you
And I'm open for a new way
Because there's not much more that I can fake

I can't fake it

You don't know how it feels
To be misunderstood
To reach for the sky
I thought you never would
You don't know how it feels
To be misunderstood
To reach for the sky
I thought you never would

But I'm bleeding, and my hands are bruised
From the grip that I once had on you
And I'm open for a new way
Because there's not much more that I can fake
But I'm bleeding, and my hands are bruised
From the grip that I once had on you
And I'm open for a new way
Because there's not much more that I can fake


SOME DAY

Someday, when I'm older
And they never know my name
Somehow, if I'm honest
I can never feel ashamed
Maybe I was wrong to
Hold you up so high
Now I know I've lost you
To the feelings I kept inside

I don't know if it felt like
I wanted you here, the way that I wanted you last time
We're not on the same page, you don't even know me
Cause you never took the time

Someday, when it's over
And you never show your face
I hope you'll remember
How I tried to make you a place
And so now, I move on
To keep my piece of mind
In someway, I've failed you
But I just ran out of time

I don't know if it felt like
I wanted you here, the way that I wanted you last time
We're not on the same page, you don't even know me
Cause you never took the time

I'm not sure that you hear me
I'm not sure that you look at me the same
I will always be attached to you
But I'm never gonna feel the same

I don't know if it felt like
I wanted you here, the way that I wanted you last time
We're not on the same page, you don't even know me
Cause you never took the time
No, you never took the time

Someday, when I'm older...
