Track Name: Waking up
One word, one lie – is all I need to hear from you, to make me say goodbye
One chance, at life – the misconception sweeping over you. Why is it so hard for you to understand?

Open up your eyes
You’ve got to make some sense of it
Waking up inside
You’ve got to make some sense of it all

You know, it’s hard, to get back on your feet again when you’ve been so low
But I know, that words are not enough, enough to let you know, I know ive tried it one too many times.

Open up your eyes
You’ve got to make some sense of it
Waking up inside
You’ve got to make some sense of it all
Track Name: Back Someday
Its like waking up, from the blackest day that I have ever seen
Its not far from here, we can walk the distance, and take a back road
You can’t escape the blasphemy; it’s in your dreams
And watch believers, make believers, they make their minds up for them. For them

When the truth comes out,
You will be back Someday

Give me two more hours, a chance to catch you, you make it harder than the heartache
You based all of your life on a book of if maybe when maybe someday
We can’t escape this sound; we’ll head back to the starting line.
Blow out the burning light, this is how it went, and how it always goes

When the truth comes out,
You will be back Someday

Do you believe in yourself, start telling everybody
You’re twenty years old! You’ve got to work this out!
Track Name: Running for their lives
The city falls asleep, as the tide begins to reach the sky, the buildings and the streetlights.
So watch the pieces float, down the avenue, and through the locals eyes there goes a million memories.

They're running and running as fast as they can
They are running for their lives
They're taking and breaking and I can’t take it
They are running for their lives

So watch them as they float down into your home
Watch them as they come so far between us
Watch the pieces, Watch the pieces
Watch them come.

They're running and running as fast as they can
They are running for their lives
They're taking and breaking and I can’t take it
They are running for their lives
Track Name: Modern Rivalry (Something to say)
So put your word where your mouth is

What ever happened to modern rivalry?
Someone would think that they had thought up a better way.
So don’t let young ones believe it; they’ll work it out on their own [DELAY]

You should have something to say I’m calling you out – it’s taking my breath away

They’re asking questions, they want to know the truth
But you’re giving answers back they’re lies, what you want them to believe]
You got to stop your distractions; you’ll make the kids react and make a scene
They’ll make a scene.
 
You should have something to say I’m calling you out – it’s taking my breath away

Ur getting closer, to figuring out

Ur getting close 2 me, I think you’ve figured it out
Figured it out,
Track Name: It's on
Its all the same, it starts off in a bar and ends up with a shoot out tonight
The clock tick tick ticks, now someone’s got to make a move for this show to end
Don’t ask me why this is the way that all the people leaving the bar at half past two express their thoughts to you.

You danced for a while, gave them a smile, then took off all of your clothes!

What ever happened to those days, when we’d plan to start a craze?
You have gone and left me here.
It’s on, this time.

Pick the lock, you went to California and still you didn’t find it all right
Now nothing will seem to change no more
Its all we ever had
And I never thought you would go this far.

All the same, it was all the same
Track Name: Radio
Until you wake inside, you will take in all the news,
And listen to the tunes on the radio

When People talk back, the crowds don’t believe the lies they shout
They don’t know anything, about anything.

It’s not what you would say

Your gonna make up reasons
And say it on the radio!

Some people clap their hands
And all the other people follow suit, they never thought to choose
But it’s up to you, you’ve got to make your own stand
So get up, get up, get up!

Its not what you would say

Your gonna make up reasons
And say it on the radio!

This hope will never die
And when they smile and they’ll look the same
You want to walk us through your nightmares
But you are too afraid to speak your mind

And if it takes, all tomorrow
You’ll know, we’ll all know

But there is not a reason
Track Name: Understated (A night of sobering thoughts)
You wake up tomorrow, without her there
Without her in your arms you walk yourself home, to drunk to say a word to me
And you will take the next step
Try and drown your fears in oceans
You will take the next step down

Its understated that you’re falling down way from the top
Its underneath, your skin and creeping out like a tide that drowns you
And it’s going to explode!

Never though you’d have the courage
Never though they’d be the ones to hold you down
You walked in to a disaster
Keeping all your inhibitions and your bad memories from the past

You will stand up one last time, and will open up your eyes, just like clouds across the sky
People live people die, but they wont wake up alright
You should have known then

You should have left them behind
You should have told them to die.
You should have told them not to think.

Its understated that you’re falling down way from the top
Its underneath, your skin and creeping out like a tide that drowns you
And its going to explode!

Fire! Fire! Fire!

And you will take the next step, try and drown your fears in oceans.
You will take the next step down.

Its understated that you’re falling down way from the top
Its underneath, your skin and creeping out like a tide that drowns you
And its going to explode!
Track Name: One day at a time
The time is now
So open up your eyes
and see the skyline
Like seconds on the clock
they carry home their hearts tonight
and scream
scream themselves to sleep

Take it one day at a time
and everything will turn out alright
One Day at a time
And everything it'll be alright

This place this time
so open up your mind
this is your life
It’s like looking for a change
we'll all be entertaining someday
someone, someway

I tried to convince myself that’s the way you wanted
I tried to convince myself that’s the way you wanted now

Take it one day at a time
Track Name: You're not the only one
When I look in to your eyes, I remember how
I used to take it all for granted, but then I bought it just incase
I tried to make up our lost time, thought I told you everything
The empty hallways’ tell the story

You’re not the only one, that’s never known

Why don’t you say what’s on your mind
Still I wonder why
A screw capped from keeping my insides getting out.
So you drop the hint – escape!
The words just flow right of my mouth
The empty package tells the story

You’re not the only one, that’s never known
You’re not the only one, that’s falling from these hands
You’ll never know

When you’re feeling lonely girl
When you just can’t take no more (no more, not, no more)
Remember when we started talking
Remember what we had before, not no more.

You’re not the only one, that’s never known
You’re not the only one, that’s falling from these hands
You’ll never know
Track Name: The Sound
I know given time I will figure it out
I heard it the sound wont make you shout!
But I guess im to blame; it’s all the same
That this is not a part of you

In those eyes, I’ll know
When your heartbeat slows
So don’t take me from this moment
Don’t take me from today

Ill always hear the same whoa
The same as you whoa

I know this time I will figure it out
I’m dying to know how it works out
But I guess im to blame; it’s all the same
Track Name: Tear my heart out
I tried to tear my heart out
to prove myself to you
I tried to tear my heart out
what more was i to do

Wait in the cold, it hurts to see you so in love again
Freeze in the cold, he's left you on your own, the truths been told

So what can i do
To make this up to you
So what have i done
I guess I'll leave it up to you

I tried to tear my heart out
to prove myself to you
I tried to tear my heart out
what more was i to do

You're making stories, to tell your friends, they blow me off
Stretching the truth about me, he owns you now, and you don’t know it

So what can i do
To make this up to you
So what have i done
I guess I'll leave it up to you

I tried to tear my heart out
to prove myself to you
I tried to tear my heart out
what more was i to do

This hole in my chest
Im reaching out for you
This hole in my chest
Im reaching out for you

I tried to stop this heart beating
But I felt time got the best of me
Can stop this heart but you wont stop time again.

I tried to tear my heart out
to prove myself to you
I tried to tear my heart out
what more was i to do
Track Name: Waiting for the moment (Live studio version)
Its like waking up, when everything has gone away
We’ll find it somehow, and bring back all those memories and thoughts of you

As I look into these eyes,
They reflect from the blue sky
All I wanted was you

Waiting for the moment, Waiting for the day
Weeks turn to months and still you’re not here
Until the day I see you again
I can’t go on without you here

Take it back, those special things that belong to me
Erase the thoughts from back of my mind, you’ll see


It takes a second to see you
A minute to fall for you
A moment to lose you
But a lifetime to forget you
