1. DIE TO SAVE YOU

Let go, only you can make it right
But you won't even look in my eye
Everything you want to save you just enslaves you

Let go, of everything you fear inside
All you do is let the fear decide
If they will love you or if you will just discover

I'm not here to save you
I'm not here to change your mind
I'm not here to hold you down
Or leave you half-alive
I came here to wake you
To open up your mind
Go on, go on, just close your eyes
Save your life
You gotta die to save you.

Lights out
Shadows closing in around you

Pray now
Scream without a sound

Let go of everything you fear inside
All you do is let the fear define
Who you are when you just let it overtake you.

I'm not here to save you
I'm not here to change your mind
I'm not here to hold you down
Or leave you half-alive
I came here to wake you
To open up your eyes
Go on go, just close your eyes
You could save your life, it could save your life
You gotta die to save you

Let go, only you can make it right
And she won't even look in my eye
Everything you want to save you falls away

Let it Go
Let it Go
Let it Go

I'm not here to save you
I'm not here to change your mind
I'm not here to hold you down
Or leave you half-alive
I came here to wake you
To open up your mind
Go on go on, just close your eyes
You can save your life, save your life
You gotta die to save you.


2. THERE'S NO GOING BACK

I had a plan and it made God laugh
It didn't work, should've checked the math
I hit the wall 'cause I live too fast
I didn't know it could hurt that bad

I clung to hope when there was none
I should've known that was so dumb

(Whoa oh oh oh)
(Whoa oh oh oh)

I was a dick when I was seventeen,
I thought the world owed me everything
But who I am and who I'll never be
Is all the shit that happens in between

(Whoa oh oh oh)
(Whoa oh oh oh)

There's no going back,
When life's a loaded gun, you pull the trigger, trigger
There's no going back
The past is in the past
Thank God it doesn't last forever

There's no going back
Fuck that going back
There's no going back
Fuck that going back

Yesterday was another life
Turning left didn't turn out right
Stuck in hell when I was twenty-five
You can't regret what you don't decide

I should have stayed, should have let go
Should've, could've means you'll never know

(Whoa oh oh oh)
(Whoa oh oh oh)

There's no going back
When life's a loaded gun, you pull the trigger, trigger
There's no going back
The past is in the past
Thank God it doesn't last forever

There's no going back
Fuck that going back
There's no going back
Fuck that going back

The future I'm living now
Is not what I'd thought it'd be
The person I was before
Is nothing like me
The future I'm living now
Is the way that I want it to be
The minute I walk through the door
I slam it behind me

There's no going back
When life's a loaded gun, you pull the trigger, trigger
There's no going back
The past is in the past
Thank God it doesn't last forever

There's no going back
Fuck that going back
There's no going back
Fuck that going back


3. WALKING AWAY

You mean everything to me, don't you know?
You're the thing that brought me back to life
I put you on a pedestal
You said I do, I said you will
Now tell me do you wanna
Keep any of this alive? (Alive?)

Didn't I didn't I love you?
Wasn't I good enough for you?
You're not walking away
You're not walking away
(Do you wanna keep this alive?)
You and I, we should be together
You and I, we're in this forever
You're not getting away
You're not getting away

Where would you be without me?
Just ask yourself
No one's gonna love you like I do
Look into my eyes and see
I could never let you leave
Now tell me do you wanna
Keep any of this alive? (Alive?)

Didn't I didn't I love you?
Wasn't I good enough for you?
You're not walking away
You're not walking away
(Don't you wanna keep this alive?)
You and I, we should be together
You and I, we're in this forever
You're not getting away
You're not getting away

Look at you.
Why are you so beautiful?
You're my only one
But you make it so hard for me
Just look at what you've done

Didn't I didn't I love you?
Wasn't I good enough for you?
You're not walking away
You're not walking away
(Do you wanna keep this alive?)
You and I, we should be together
You and I, we're in this forever
You're not getting away
You're not getting away
(Do you wanna keep this alive?)
You're not getting away
You're not getting away
(Do you wanna keep this alive?)
You're not getting away
You're not getting away


4. GUNFIGHT

Here's a little story how the west was won
The white man came and took out everyone
They used dirty blankets and they used machine guns
And they didn't think twice about what they'd done

Here's a little story 'bout Kevin Bacon
He had a bunch of money but it got taken
He got a bunch of lawyers and he tried to sue
But Bernie looked at him and said, "HEY, FUCK YOU!"

Don't bring a knife to a gun fight, you'll lose.
Don't bring a knife to a gun fight, you'll lose.

Here's a little story 'bout the congressmen
They bailed out all of their billionaire friends
You can blame Bush, or you can try to blame Obama
But you should've fuckin' learned from your daddy or your momma

That you don't bring a knife to a gun fight, you'll lose.

Some fights just ain't fair
Some fights just ain't fair
No, some fights just ain't fair

You don't bring a knife to a gun fight, you'll lose!

Here's a little story 'bout Tienanmen Square
The people rose up and said, "Life ain't fair."
Now they're sweating in a shop making iPhones and
You stand in front of tanks, the tanks are gonna win!

Don't bring a knife to a gun fight, you'll lose.
Don't bring a knife to a gun fight, you'll lose.

Don't bring a knife to a gun fight, you'll lose.

Don't bring a knife
Don't bring a knife... you'll lose.


5. POISON

Here I sleep with one eye open
While you're dreaming next to me
Well at least I gave up hoping
Some kind of miracle would set me free

Starting over
God only knows where we've been
Starting over
Is not an option

You're like poison on my tongue
So bittersweet, but I like it, I love it
Poison on my tongue
And it keeps killing me, but I like it, I love it

Here's a pill
Why don't we take it
Cause I heard it makes it all okay
And wait until we both are naked
Save the bullshit for another day

Starting over
God only knows where we've been
Starting over
Is not an option

You're like poison on my tongue
So bittersweet, but I like it, I love it
Poison on my tongue
And it keeps killing me, but I like it, I love it

You make me wanna jump off a ledge
Find a new life, come back from the dead
Do it again, do it again, do it again
Poison, and it keeps killing me, but I like it, I love it

(On my tongue, like poison on my tongue, she's like poison)

She's like poison!

She's like poison on my tongue
So bittersweet, but I like it, I love it
Poison on my tongue
And it keeps killing me, but I like it, I love it


6. WHERE DID THE TIME GO

Tomorrow is ending as fast as I’m spending
Most days I’m pretending I’m hyper extending
All my dreams and all my uncertainties
Onto a speeding train

Where does the time go
And what have I done
The days keep getting shorter
But I’m still on the run
I’m losing the battle
I live in the shadows
Where did the time go
Hell if I know

The summer’s a shorter, my sister’s older
She cries on shoulder, I’m crossing the border
With all my dreams and all my uncertainties
Onto a speeding train

Where does the time go
And what have I done
The days keep getting shorter
But I’m still on the run
I’m losing the battle
I live in the shadows
Where did the time go
Hell if I know

Eyes closed
I’m remembering why people come and go
Like dominos the days keep passing by
I realize I never learned how to fly
Is there still time, is there still time

Where does the time go
And what have I done
The days keep getting shorter
But I’m still on the run
I’m losing the battle
I live in the shadows
Where did the time go
Hell if I know

Where did the time go
Hell if I know


7. TELLING LIES

They stand before the alter
They stand before themselves
For richer or for poorer,
in sickness and in health

Words are mostly meaningless the only truth that really is
(We’re all getting) by telling lies, telling lies
(Everyone we love) is telling lies, telling lies
Maybe that’s why I never felt like I could look you in the eyes
(Everyone alive) is telling lies

She feels the whole world on her shoulders as she tucks her kid in bed
It gets better when you’re older and they believe the words she says

Words are mostly meaningless, the only truth that really is
(We don’t really mind) telling lies, telling lies
(cause we’re all getting by) telling lies, telling lies
Maybe that’s why I never felt like I could trust any friend of mine
(everyone alive) is telling lies, telling lies

She walks naked in the bedroom as I’m lying on my back
And says "baby please by honest have I been getting fat?"

But my words are mostly meaningless the only truth that really is
(Everyone we love) is telling lies, telling lies
(Everyone we know) is telling lies, telling lies
Maybe that is why I can justify the way I live my life
(Cause everyone alive) is telling lies


8. CONNECT

There’s a thousand miles between us
As I feel your breath on my skin
There are so many things I want to say
But I don’t know how to begin

I want to connect with you
Over the oceans and back to the truth
I want to connect with you

I’m standing right beside you
Screaming in my head
I don’t know how to reach you
I shut down instead
When all I want to do is connect with you

The silence is defining
Your heartbeat’s been heard from next door
I knock but no answer
You know I’ve never done this before

I want to connect with you
Over the oceans and back to the truth
I want to connect with you

I’m standing right beside you
Screaming in my head
I don’t know how to reach you
I shut down instead
When all I want to do is connect with you

Distance can be measured by
The pain you feel inside your heart
We could be together
Or be five million miles apart
But that wouldn’t stop me

I want to connect with you
Over the oceans and back to the truth
I want to connect with you

I’m standing right beside you
Screaming in my head
I don’t know how to reach you
I shut down instead
When all I want to do is connect with you


9. RUN

How many moments have passed you by
How many tears have you let dry
Over every dream that you let die
How many things have you kept inside
How many things have you never tried
What would you do if you were out of time

Well you better run
You better run as fast as you can
Because the world tries to stop you
Stop you, stop you whenever it can
You better live like it’s the last day of your life
Because the world tries to stop you
Stop you, stop you as soon as you try

Would you shut your mouth when there’s something to say
Would you hear the truth at the end of the day
Would you close your eyes and just turn away
You gotta second chance and screwed it up
And now there’s always too much and never enough
How many times have you given up

Well you better run
You better run as fast as you can
Because the world tries to stop you
Stop you, stop you whenever it can
You better live like it’s the last day of your life
Because the world tries to stop you
Stop you, stop you as soon as you try

No one knows the answers to everything
Nobody knows what tomorrow brings
Nobody really knows anything

So you better run
You better run as fast as you can
Because the world tries to stop you
Stop you, stop you whenever it can
You better live like it’s the last day of your life
Because the world tries to stop you
Stop you, stop you as soon as you try

Tries to stop you, stop you
Stop you as soon as you try
Tries to stop you, stop you
Stop you as soon as you try
Tries to stop you, stop you
Stop you if you never try


10. THE TRICK THE DEVIL DID

Out of reach in the sky
Most of you will never fly
Afraid to fail, afraid to try
But not me, I’d rather die

The trick the devil did
The trick the devil did
The trick the devil did was make me want it

Oh no, I’m fighting for my soul
I’m running from the battle
Most things I can handle

The trick the devil did
The trick the devil did
The trick the devil did was make me want it

Lone eyes, longer road
Up ahead we’re all alone
And what I want is what I’m owed
Too late to stay, too late to go

The trick the devil did
The trick the devil did
The trick the devil did was make me want it

Oh no, I’m fighting for my soul
I’m running from the battle
Most things I can handle
Oh no, I’m never letting go
I saw my name in blood
So I’m ready for the trouble

The trick the devil did
The trick the devil did
The trick the devil did was make me want it

And I can’t resist anything of temptation

Oh no, I’m fighting for my soul
I’m running from the battle
Most things I can handle

The trick, the trick
The trick the devil did
The trick the devil did was make me want it


11. HEALING NOW

I wrestle with my thoughts at night
Anchored to the ropes I tied to myself
Heaviness in my both my legs
Like I walked a thousand miles a day

If I could stand on top of my world
I’d still be looking up at stars that I can never touch

When a sky full of tears falls to the earth
I gotta believe we’re healing now
Now before you give up, before it gets worse
I have to believe we’re healing now

Healing now
Healing now
Healing now

From where I stand it’s hard to see
What anyone has to offer me today
Courage comes from letting go
And loving everything you fear away

If I could stand on top of my world
I’d still be looking up at stars that I can never touch

When a sky full of tears falls to the earth
I gotta believe we’re healing now
Now before you give up, before it gets worse
I have to believe we’re healing now

Healing now
Healing now
Healing now

I dream about war
I live without peace
A cell without bars
Breathe air I can’t breathe
I choose to believe
In the face of my doubts
I am what I see
I am healing now

Healing now

When a sky full of tears falls to the earth
I gotta believe we’re healing now
Now before you give up, before it gets worse
I have to believe we’re healing now

Healing now
Healing now
Healing now


12. UNDER A VERY BLACK SKY

I have a dream you had a weapon
I couldn’t see it in the dark of the night
It’s easy to hide under a very black sky
Over the moon just beyond seven
I watched in vein as the missiles took flight
We lost our lives under a very black sky

Under a black sky
Under a black sky
Under a black sky

Colors explode under your microscope
But just deny as it’s all black and white
I lost my mind under a very black sky
We live our lives mostly pretending
You have a secret, you’ll never know mine
I wear a disguise under a very black sky

It’s easy to love you
Easy as hell when you’re anyone, anyone else
It’s hard to fake it
I know you can tell if you’re anyone, anyone else
If you’re anyone, anyone else
If you’re anyone, anyone

Under a black sky
Under a black sky
Under a black sky

At first you believe and then you start lying
Swallowing things like it’s shredded up glass
I’m bleeding inside under a very black sky
Disappointment is cruel but hope can be crueler
I sucked them both until I thought I could die
Now all my tears are dry under a very black sky

Under a black sky
Under a black sky
Under a black sky
Under a black sky

Under a black sky
Under a black sky
Under a black sky
Under a black sky

Under a black sky
Under a black sky
