Listen up Cause were making noise Break the locks And share the spoils Came from nothing Realized See into the future dear I was right Never mind what you may hear I was right Been gone for so damn long I fear I was right Came from something Realized From this day forward It’s our time. Oooooooooo….

Five years older Force fed fairy tales Of a soldier Forced to bury it Learn from one Another… Stone cold sober Seeking out a friend Mindless murder As a parting gift I want to be the first to Congratulate you While I was sleeping Life was teaching me to grow How could I know What I had in store well… I’m alive, but I I’d rather die Than to see him make you smile If I could I would set fire Watch as it caves Smile as it caves Make your mind up Masked by mass appeal Let’s remember Just the shitty years Learn to love Another Facing forward Set your mind at ease Take some time and Have some fun at least I want to be the first to Congratulate you While I was sleeping Life was teaching me to grow How could I know What I had in store well… I’m alive, but I I’d rather die Than to see him make you smile If I could I would set fire Let it burn let it expire Watch as it caves Smile as it caves I’m alive, but I I’d rather die Than to see him make you smile If I could I would set fire Watch as it caves And to see him make you smile If I could I would set fire Let it burn let it expire Watch as it caves And if I can't make you smile Hold your face unto the fire Let you burn let you expire Watch as you cave Smile as you cave….

Choose your speed Slow down Patiently Change your tastes Flip side Face to face Careless fall To your knees Scrape Your feet One of us Had to make a fuss I don’t mind I don’t mind How I live Or where I die Whether now or whether then Seek and you’ll find The time well spent See my money’s on the rising sun Know I don’t belong to this I won’t hide And I won’t run One of us Had to make a fuss all I see is use for these dichotomies I don’t mind I don’t mind How I live Or where I die Whether now or whether then Seek and you’ll find The time well spent I don’t mind I don’t mind How I live Or where I die Whether now or whether then Seek and you’ll find The time well spent Seek and you’ll find Seek and you'll find

Here and now All I've been allowed Is this working Phased out Why go searching Come round When faith Meets fate All has been replaced By a certain distaste For a certain mistake So fine tune your systems Kiss your kids God you'll miss them Left them all for a mission To see how far One can truly fall And you're all alone Out of words No clever verbs or wordplay Strike a nerve With fancy chords and sustain So fine tune your systems Kiss your kids God you'll miss them Left it all for a mission To see how far One can truly fall And you're all alone Now it’s time My minds gone blind To boast would be a waste Here, I've come to gain The heavens praise I'm all in Who did I become What did I become Where did I go wrong, in the end I'll repent When did I go wrong Why did why did I become...

Where have all the good ones gone to How should we respond to something new What’s to do when it’s gone Guess we lose Waste Waste another We feel nothing Cause they do what they did Now they’re done Stay, plant your seeds It’s the future we chose to lead The time is now Storm the town Make ’em notice Say Say we’re stupid Were we stupid When we turned on the lights in our heads Where have all the good ones gone to how should we respond to something new What’s to do when they’re gone We’ll improve Stay, plant your seeds It’s the future we chose to lead The time is now Storm the town Make ’em notice Stay plant your seeds It’s the future we chose to lead The time is now Storm the town Make ’em notice

Highly volatile and restless Unrelenting unexcused I don’t need I don’t need I don’t want to hear about them If the shoes make the man Could they walk a mile in mine No one can say for certain No one should even try My mind reminds me No wonder no denial All along the challenge wasn’t To confront but to retreat and on and on it goes Forever if I ever take the high road On and on it goes forever just the same No one can say for certain No one should even try My mind reminds me No wonder no denial And so for many years I shed so many tears How has it come to this It hurts the most to be dismissed No one can say for certain No one should even try My mind reminds me No wonder no denial

Favor Fades fast Waiting on a savior To last So we march with purpose Proud and paranoid What may come we can’t avoid Laid to rest amongst my peers It’s easier to Replace you Cut till you're numb One more try Savor The past Presently I Speak with all the skeletons Interested in where I’ve been Laid to rest amongst my peers It’s easier to Replace you Cut till you're numb One more try and you'll never know and you'll never know and you'll never know and you'll never know and you'll never know and you'll never know and you'll never know and you'll never know and you'll never know and you'll never know and you'll never know and you'll never know

So give me Good reason Not to do the things that I find pleasing Wait for it There's more here Painted eyes that lie to you for sport Walk by And it seems like It seems it doesn't matter So onward And upward Call their bluff and snuff at what they offered But just one Condition Spare a life and contradict your vision And it seems like It seems like it’s the first time Seldom ever told (but) Everybody knows Self-loathing On my best of days Cease fire Retire Never trust the likes of such a liar Call session Confess sin Find a waste of space and time dimension And it hurts like It hurts like it's the first time Seldom ever told (but) Everybody knows Self-loathing On my best of days

With people all around him Never could he fathom The day he’d grow old As amber turns to ash Father time Constantly surrounds him And makes him go blind Wait and see There I’ll be When this becomes your mess I die to please Say it shouldn’t hurt I don’t deserve All the worst from this curse Know that I’ll roam near Never to be found After all of these years Just you see There I’ll be When this becomes your mess I die to please I die to please I die to please I die to please Ask me now On common ground To come back and reprieve Never mind the fact that I Was sent my way upstream Amends Amends Commence My friend Ask me how On common ground To come back and receive

You say it’s pre-ordained we're destined to stay the same I could never think such clever things to say. I'm re-missed at what's been done and who's to blame are you with me here today vain attempts will consummate Bite your tongue the cavalry's away Bite your tongue the verdict stays the same Bite your tongue there's nothing left to say So I'll re-arrange I'm destined to change the game If not now than when will I ever Rise again If not you than whom will I ever Call a friend Bite your tongue the cavalry's away Bite your tongue the verdict stays the same Bite your tongue there's nothing left to see here As for now I curse the clouds Forlorn, torn, ripped at the seams no more Silly words are for the birds I'm told But I don't know Well I don't know Bite your tongue the cavalry's away Bite your tongue the verdict stays the same Bite your.... Bite your...

Everybody wants What they just don’t have And everybody else Grows greener grass It’s just a phase We raced You placed out Of a lesser class After all the moment has passed Fly your flag half mast Girl you're so clever Could we ever Tar and feather Well just … Calm down Calm down Calm down Now… And the truth Shackles both your feet Swallow this Let it set you free It’s just a phase We raced You placed out Of a lesser class After all the moment has passed Fly our flags half mast Girl we’re so clever Could we ever Tar and feather Make our mistakes in life After all we’re human beings Well just calm down Calm down Calm down Now … Calm down Calm down Calm down Calm down

Come with me Find peace And then the crowd will follow Walk away From where you Once became your hollow Self Fond feelings we walk away with For Why should I bother even try Since we'll die And I’m just a ghost And how you’ll know Is where I’ve been The flowers grow And so for now This might get loud And passing by It saved my life So we ascend and take flight This time I’ll get it right Let them be They’ll place back All the broken pieces In my life Changed minds Outsourced form none to plenty Of Fond feelings we walk away with For what Why should I bother even Try Since I'll die And I’m just a ghost And how you’ll know Is where I’ve been The flowers grow And so for now This might get loud And passing by It saved my life So we ascend and take flight This time I’ll get it right So I ascend and take flight This time I’ll get it right This time I’ll get it right This time I'll get it right This time I'll get it right This time I'll get it right This time I'll get it right This time I'll get it right This time I'll get it right This time I'll get it right
