1. AND THE HERO WILL DROWN

The night will come
And rip away,
Her wings of innocence through every word we say
Maybe it's time,
To spit out the core
Of our rotting union hopefully before it chokes
Us to our senses.

Guess it's too bad,
That everything we have
Is taken away.

Swim in the smoke
The hero will drown
Intoxicating beauty tears everything down
But still our hands
Are bound at the wrist
This romantic tragedy is suffocating from your fist,
In a sea of fire.

Guess it's too bad,
That everything we have
Is taken away.

Guess it's too bad,
That everything we have
Is taken away. (taken away)

Hero, Hero, this word you'll never know
Hero, Hero, this word you'll never know
You'll never know

Guess it's too bad
That everything we have
Is taken away. (taken away)

Guess it's too bad
That everything we have
Is taken away. (taken away)

Guess it's too bad
That everything we have
Is taken away.

Guess it's too bad
That everything we have
Is taken away. (taken away)

Away, away, away
They're taking it away
Away, away,
They're taking it away


2. UNTIL THE DAY I DIE

Until the day I die
I'll spill my heart for you, for you
Until the day I die
I'll spill my heart for you

As years go by
I race the clock with you
But if you died right now
You know that I'd die too
I'd die too

You remind me of the times
When I knew who I was (I was)
But still the second hand will catch us
Like it always does

We'll make the same mistakes
I'll take the fall for you
I hope you need this now
Cause I know I still do

Until the day I die (Until the day I die)
I'll spill my heart for you
Until the day I die (Until the day I die)
I'll spill my heart for you

Should I bite my tongue?
Until blood soaks my shirt
We'll never fall apart
Tell me why this hurts so much

My hands are at your throat
And I think I hate you
But still we'll say, "remember when"
Just like we always do
Just like we always do

Until the day I die (Until the day I die)
I'll spill my heart for you
Until the day I die (Until the day I die)
I'll spill my heart for you

Yeah I'd spill my heart!!!
Yeah I'd spill my heart for you!!!

My hands are at your throat
And I think I hate you
We made the same mistakes
Mistakes like friends do

My hands are at your throat
And I think I hate you
We made the same mistakes
Made the same mistakes

Until the day I die
I'll spill my heart for you, for you

Until the day I die (Until the day I die)
I'll spill my heart for you, for you
Until the day I die (Until the day I die)
I'll spill my heart for you
Until the day I die (Until the day I die)
Until the day I die!!!


[Lyrics to early version are a bit different:]

As years go by
I race the clock with you
But if you died right now
You know that I'd die too
I'd die too

You remind me of the times
When I knew who I was (I was)
But still the second hand will catch us
Like it always does

Until the day I die (Until the day I die)
I'll spill my heart for you
Until the day I die (Until the day I die)
I'll spill my heart for you

Should I bite my tongue?
Until blood soaks my shirt
We'll never fall apart
Tell me why this hurts so much

My hands are at your throat
And I think I hate you
But still we'll say, "remember when"
Just like we always do

Until the day I die (Until the day I die)
I'll spill my heart for you
Until the day I die (Until the day I die)
I'll spill my heart for you

Yeah I'd spill my heart!!!
Yeah I'd spill my heart for you!!!

My hands are at your throat
And I think I hate you
We made the same mistakes
Mistakes like friends do

My hands are at your throat
And I think I hate you
We made the same mistakes

Do you need this as bad as I do? (Until the day I die)
And do you need this as bad as I do? (Until the day I die)
Yeah do you need this as bad as I do? (Until the day I die)
Yeah do you need this as bad as I do, as I do? (Until the day I die)


3. ANTHEM OF OUR DYING DAY

The stars will cry
The blackest tears tonight
And this is the moment that I live for
I can smell the ocean air
And here I am
Pouring my heart onto these rooftops
Just a ghost to the world
That's exactly
Exactly what I need

From up here the city lights burn
Like a thousand miles of fire
And I'm here to sing this anthem
Of our dying day

For a second I wish the tide
Would swallow every inch of this city
As you gasp for air tonight
I'd scream this song right in your face
If you were here
I swear I won't miss a beat
Cause I never
Never have before

From up here the city lights burn
Like a thousand miles of fire
And I'm here to sing this anthem
Of our dying day

Of our dying day
Of our dying day
Of our dying!!!

For a second I wish the tide
Would swallow every inch of this city
And you gasp for air tonight!!

From up here the city lights burn
Like a thousand miles of fire
And I'm here to sing this anthem
Of our dying day
From up here the city lights burn
Like a thousand miles of fire
And I'm here to sing this anthem
Of our dying day
From up here the city lights burn
Like a thousand miles of fire
And I'm here to sing this anthem
Of our dying day

Our dying day
Of our dying!!!


4. IN THE SHADOWS

We both take the hardest punches
And collect black eyes just to prove it
Still we pass by just like strangers
And we speak just like the closest enemies (enemies)

Woah, in the shadows of our life
We can fall into the night unscarred
Woah, in the shadows of our life
We can never let it go this far

Somehow my words are rendered useless
Still I pull my lip down to my chest
Just to show you how my jaw is
Tired from waiting to say the things that you should hear (you should hear)

Woah, in the shadows of our life
We can fall into the night unscarred
Woah, in the shadows of our life
We can never let it go this far

Afterall we're still the same
These empty promises seem to never change
there's a smile on my face and it's 2:55 AM
and this cramp in my wrist puts me back to sleep till it all comes around again

With a closed fist!
With a closed fist!
With a closed fist!
With a closed fist!

Woah, in the shadows of our life
We can fall into the night unscarred
Woah, in the shadows of our life
We can never let it go this far

Woah, in the shadows of our life
We can fall into the night unscarred
Woah, in the shadows of our life
We can never let it go this far


5 . DIVE RIGHT IN

So here I go
I'll dive right in
Break through the waves
Straight to the ocean floor

And although my hands are shaking
I lie perfectly still
'Cause I'm determined to let myself sink down

And I know I'm buried too far down
To feel the warmth from the sun again

I could wave my arms and swim away
But never reach the shore
But for now I will lay face first in the sand
With the wreckage from ships that lost their way

And I know I'm buried too far down
To feel the warmth from the sun again

And I know I'm buried too far down
To feel the warmth from the sun again

And although my hands are shaking
I lie perfectly still
'Cause I'm determined to let myself sink down

And I know I'm buried too far down
To feel the warmth from the sun again


6. SWALLOW THE KNIFE

So our open wounds will bleed
Until our veins run dry
Now we have to take this thorn
And tear it from our side
Agitated at the fault line
Still agreed to disagree
Your connected to the heart
But tonight we'll set you free

So swallow the knife
Carve the way for your pride
Now our hands are tied
The problems lie within
So we pray for night
To start over again

Even now as i write this down
All pretensions disappear
Now our impulses will bite
At the ankles of our fear

So swallow the knife
Carve the way for your pride
Now our hands are tied
The problems lie within
So we pray for night
To start over again

Now our hands are tied
The problems lie within
So we pray for night
To start over again

Words are spoken
Words are broken down

So lets make this night be our best mistake
So lets take the time to wipe the blood away
Now our hands are tied
And our world is caving in

Now our hands are tied
The problems lie within
So we pray for night
To start over again

Now our hands are tied
And the problems lie within
Words are spoken
Words are broken
Broken Down


7. BURNING YEARS

It's not what you will say, it's what you have done
to let this come between us.
You're right, without a fight.
This might be worth it to you, and in the process gotten to me.

I think that nothing can fly with this broken wing.
There's so much to hold onto now.
Nothing can fly with this broken wing,
so here's a gift, in this feather.

You've gone too far. I'm standing alone.
Let's sort this out together.
You're right, without a fight.
It might be worth it to you, but I can't take this anymore.

I think that nothing can fly with this broken wing.
There's so much to hold on to now.
Nothing can fly with this broken wing,
so here's a gift, in this feather.

From this house of our friendship,
shut the door and light the match.
Throw behind you, walk away. (You burn it down, you burn it down!)
These ashes
These ashes
These ashes burn.

I think that nothing can fly with this broken wing.
There's so much to hold on to now.
Nothing can fly with this broken wing,
so here's a gift, in this feather.
Nothing can fly with this broken wing,
so here's a gift, in this feather.


8. PAGE AVENUE

I still recall every summer night
Like it was yesterday
The time would never end
And my friends were family
Nothing mattered more
Than the loyalty we had
Now i'm a world away from everything we shared

I had something better
Waiting ahead
I try to take control of my heart
I had something better
But i'll tear it down and i'll tape it up
By my own design i fall

Bring back the days
Three story parking lot
The air is never dry
As the city falls asleep, days bleed into the night

The tables set the stage
For a life of memories
But i'm a world away from everything

I had something better
Waiting ahead
I try to take control of my heart
I had something better
But i'll tear it down and i'll tape it up
By my own design i fall
Apart as time passes by
I fall apart but the memories never die

And i still recall every summer night
It seems like yesterday but i'm still a world away

I had something better
Waiting ahead
I try to take control of my heart
I had something better
But i'll tear it down and i'll tape it up
By my own design i fall

I had something better
I had something better
And i fall apart, as time passes


9. SIDEWALKS

The bridge is all crumbled.
The water soaks into rocks
that fell at the bottom of the road (At the end of the town.)
The town that we lived in.
The memories shaken apart from the weeds that grow

Over the sidewalks,
Running away from the streets we knew,
Sidewalks,
Like the time we thought was made for you.
Oh...

Out on the front porch,
watching the cars as they go by
(Eighteen blue, twenty one grey)
Looking ahead for the first time that we could drive,
Out on our own,
To speed away

From the sidewalks,
Running away from the streets we knew,
Sidewalks,
Like the time we thought was made for you.
Oh...

All of the days have passed us by,
All of the sun is gone... away.

Sidewalks,
Running away from the streets we knew,

Sidewalks,
Running away from the streets we knew,
Sidewalks,
Like the time we thought was made for you.
(Sidewalks)
The bridges are crumpled,
The water soaks into rocks,
(Sidewalks)
That fell at the bottom of the road.


10. DIVIDE AND CONQUER

Does the shadow live forever?
Will this graveyard be the dance floor
for these corpses?
Will they be the first to fall
and dance the night away?

Why do we do this to ourselves?
We're buying every word they sell.

Starving loved ones
carry our guns
Take a look at what we've become.
Hungry nations
standing in the ashes of
our enemies's remains.

Why do we do this to ourselves?
We're buying every word they sell.
Why do we do this to ourselves?
We're buying every word
That they sell.

So we dance the night away.
So we dance the night away.
So we dance the night away.
So we dance the night away.
The night away.

Why do we do this to ourselves?
We're buying every word they sell.
Why do we do this to ourselves?
We're buying every word
That they sell.


11. RAZORBLADES

Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah

Walking example of you
Is wait for the silence
Talking backwards to you
It meant nothing to me

Watching the world fall on you
I'm keeping my eyes closed
Now I can see what this means to you
It meant nothing to me

[Chorus]
This wasted so many nights and again
I've wasted so much time on a friend
Too young, too proud to understand
So this is the end

Perfect timing for you
(You'll run 'til your legs break)
So here's my reminder of you
It meant nothing to me

[Chorus]
This wasted so many nights and again
I've wasted so much time on a friend
Too young, too proud to understand
So this is the end

Go!

We should've seen this coming
We should've seen this...

Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah

[Chorus x2]
This wasted so many nights and again
I've wasted so much time on a friend
Too young, too proud to understand
So this is the end

Yeah, this is the end!


12. FALLING DOWN

Now I can taste
The war that I've been fighting
Start to fall but I'm still standing here
Behind the wall of dying faith

I can't forget
The fight that's growing stronger
Face to face with hopes of longer days
To build on something we should save

I stand alone
I'm on my own
My hands will bleed (my hands will bleed!)
I'm holding on to what is gone
What's left of me?

I'm falling down
But I should find my strength in this
A light that burns to reconnect
My heart for what it's meant to give

I stand alone
I'm on my own
My hands will bleed (my hands will bleed!)
I'm holding on to what is gone
What's left of me?!

Walk!
Fall!
Stand again so I can
Walk!
Fall!
Stand again so I can
Walk!
Fall!
Stand again so I can

Fall!!!

I stand alone
I'm on my own
My hands will bleed (my hands will bleed!)
I'm holding on to what is gone
What's left of me?!

H2o Go!
