Track Name: Overrated
Play the victim
a cog in the system
your drugs, your drama
they're causing your problems
you crave attention
no matter the measure
so numb your body
we're late for the party

don't say you've never tried it
'cause I think that you'd kinda like it
and I know that you want it too..
hold still and take the picture
i know you feel the vigor
and i know that you want it too

treat life like a waiting room
'cause heavens coming soon
and love is overrated
lets sedate our budding youth
a shelter from the truth
'cause life is overrated

don't try to fight
just let it over take you
and I know that you want it too
don't try to fight
just let the poison take you
and i know that you want it too

I know you want it
i know you need
i don't want to I've got to
Track Name: Sparks
You're the spark I need
Ignite the fumes inside my heart
You flipped a switch in me
and lit it up for all to see

You're the spark I need
You pump the life back to my soul
You redefine meaning
You redefined what I believe

Then you walked into the door
You saved my wretched life
You saved what little was left
In me
You rain a shower of sparks
You lit my darkest life
You saved what little was left
In me

You're the spark I need
Enough to cure whats ailing me
You're sent to save my life
A second chance is what you bring

You're the spark I need
Before the darkness covers me
You came to shed some light
Bright enough so I could see

Then you walked into the door
You saved my wretched life
You saved what little was left
In me
You rain a shower of sparks
You lit my darkest life
You saved what little was left
In me

You're the sunrise
To my dark night
Would you light me up?
You're the bright light
The door to the next life
Light me up

You're the sunrise
To the night skies
Would you light me up?
You're the bright light
To the next life
Would you light me up?

You're the sunrise
You're the bright light
Track Name: Stage Fright
A light that teases through
reveals the crowded room
the curtains purpose, tried and true
Behind it only me
not ready, not willing
I can't afford to lose this part of me
So in the dark, I'll be

Play us the song you've left undone
Sing us the words you've left unsung
Why are you standing on this stage
if all these lines are sentenced to these page
five to the four to the three, two, one
you're on

The lions caged and caught
He says speak from the heart
speak up before they stand leave you
The ticking never stops
The enemy's the clock
So sing before they find somebody else

'cause in the dark I'm free
So in the dark, I'll be

In the light I know the crowd will see right through me

Play us the song you've left undone
Sing us the words you've left unsung
Why are you standing on this stage
if all these lines are sentenced to these page
five to the four to the three, two, one
you're on

When I start to believe just how this goes
my doubt seems to find me, so I
Seek the silent approval of the ghost
the one only I see and I
Always thought that approval was enough
to fill and define me find me so I
So I walk off the stage right here alone, the place only I know I'm free

The curtains closed
When it opens I'll be gone
Track Name: Let Go
maybe we should take tonight
get off the grid just you and I
to chase the light
maybe we could fall in love again
maybe we would feel alive
forget our problems and pretend
you and I
are the only ones left here
so just let go
we could lay in the darkness
lit by starlight and our intentions
so just let go
of the very things that divide us
so that we can come together
so just let go
we could stay here forever

Share your dreams with me tonight
Remember all the things you loved
when you were young
all the thoughts you swore you’d never misplace
could you kiss me to revive
could you slow this ticking time
a threat divine
Maybe we could fall in love
and just let go

Never wanting more than this
Remember why we can’t resist
Remember why can’t forget
That you and I belong that this
It could go on and on and on so just let go
Track Name: Blame
The winner stays
A hand is raised
You claim the throne
you claim the spoils
you claim the balance, own the bruise
A trust that shadows
You never learn
You never trust
Defensive hearts
Defensive thrusts will keep you safe and sound tonight
While the darkness holds the light
A fathers demons cast you down
Down to the gallows
Could you tell me something
Give me something to believe
Cause I need something to hold on
You’re the one who said I would walk away and go
And your surprised I’m trying to leave

Lock the doors
Draw the shades
Provide the look
The one that got us here today
My only crutch my only bane
And who’s to blame
Well guide the way
Spell it out
You paint the portrait,
You choose the colors, mount the frame
You bid me out to flaunt your pain
Your fathers demons cast you down, down to the gallows
Ya I said it
And I meant it
I’d do right by you
And you can blame me
For all the same things
All I couldn’t do
Don’t you think it’s ‘cause I loved you, I loved you more than that
All you couldn’t say, I hoped you’d do.
So I’m going
and your coming
And I’m coming a
and your going
coming, going, coming

Could you tell me something
Give me something to believe
Cause I need something to hold on
You’re the one who said I would walk away and go
And your surprised I’m trying to leave

Never did I want to leave
I can’t control your silent plea’s
And I can’t control you
I can’t control you
Trust me, I tried to
Never did I want to leave
I can’t condone your violent needs
And I can’t control you
I can’t console your silent plea’s
I can’t control you
Track Name: Keep You Up Tonight
You say
you say you're feeling kind of lonely
well i'll bet
i'll bet you're not as lonely as me
so come home, come home come home with me tonight

You say, You say, you say you say he keeps you up at night
well i'll bet i'll bet it's not as late as she's kept me
turn out turn out turn out the lights tonight

I can't wait another minute
and i've
lost count of all the reasons and i
and i don't intend on leaving till' I've
run out of all the reasons that I

I want to keep you up tonight
Show you how to make a wrong, a wrong
all so right
and I
Oh I want to keep you up tonight
leave our lives behind for just, oh just, for just one night

you say you say he doesn't seem to care or cure
well i'll bet i'll bet he's not irreverent like her
so let so let so let your dress fall to the floor

you say you say you say you'll never love again
well i well i well i should say amen
but that but that but that belies tonight

I see
Your eyes’ Telling me, you’d love, to be with me
your touch tells me, you want, me and only me
your eyes Tell me, it’s me and only me
tell me.. tell me…
Track Name: Be Here
We’re taking this to slow
So take my hand, it’s time to go it’s,
time to find out what tonight is for.

The burdens that you hold
The penance that, is taking hold can
wait tonight your mind needs a vacation
You want this or you don’t

All his faults
They tie the string
They guarantee
They capture

Can you look me in the eyes
And can you tell me that you’re love’s a lie
So stop saving yourself
From saving yourself and
Save yourself.

Is it
To much
Did the Stockholm Syndrome ruin us
and how could we become the ones we hated?
When’s enough?
Could I declare my love and lust
and make tonight be all ours for the taking
You want this or you don’t

Don’t deny
I am the one
No matter what
He has done.

Can you look me in the eyes
And can you tell me that you’re love’s a lie
So stop saving yourself
From saving yourself and
Save yourself.

I know
You can see
Be here now
Be with me.

Can you look me in the eyes
And can you tell me that you’re love’s a lie
So stop saving yourself
From saving yourself and
Save yourself.
Track Name: Devil
I gotta go
I need a change
I think that I should leave
I'll get my stuff and
pack my bags and give you back your things
It's not enough
Don't talk me down
Don't try and beg or plead
We tried our best, so calm yourself
You're better off with out me

The end is all the same
Insecurity and shame
I trade it for the pain

I do it to myself, before somebody else
So get up and go

I gotta know
I need to see
I need to comprehend
How do I live
Without the voice
the Devil in my head
He says "You're done" "DONE!"
"Don't even try, just let it settle in."
To be alone, or be in pain, the ladder seems to never win

In pieces once again
A curse that always wins
Don't let the Devil in.

I do it to myself, before somebody else, so get up, get up and go.

The devil knocks and I pretend I'm dead
When I"m asleep he'll infiltrate my head again.
He invites all of his friends to stay and play
So when I wake I lock the doors again.
So no one can get in
In pieces once again
So no one can get in
Don't let nobody in 'cause the dreams will start again. Don't let the Devil In..

I do it to myself, before somebody else, so get up, get up and go.
Track Name: Waves
The wave up ahead
it grows as it billows in
taunting me again
A stones throw away
my girl looks at me to say
"everything's ok"
ok..
It's only just a dream

Is it real
Is it fake
I can't quite explain, all the warnings I create
Is it god
Is it faith
the wave, never falls, never crashes when I sleep just when I wake

Run my darling
It's close to falling
It's frozen in time
Suspended my crimes are judged
Only I can judge
judge me.

Is it real
Is it fake
I can't quite explain, all the warnings I create
Is it god
Is it faith
the wave, never falls, never crashes when I sleep just when I wake

Will we die
Can I save you and I
will we know
will we swim
if it swallows

Will we die
Can I save you and I
will we fight, to survive
Will we fight for our lives

Silent frame
the image is froze
A calmness comes over us both
She did stay
embraced me with fear
could this be the ending my dear?
Track Name: Thrown
This throne of ours we share has crumbled
Once a titan built to scape the coward skies
A diet crack cast through the heavens and opened up the stillest night.
And cast us away.

This innocence we’ve shared is done for.
We lost a friend her soul is thrown towards the skies and so with
hands to eyes, heads down to humble
acknowledge not our inner cries
we’re cast away

(Chorus)
Can we avoid tomorrow
If we turn our back on today
The tide is getting higher
Do we set the sails or remain
A cast away.

This throne of ours we share has crumbled
And honest company is doing more than fine
The first to break, care take, and stumble
Defibrillates the pain inside
and casts us away

(Chorus)

War is war and love is love
and damage done is damage done
We shook a fist and shipped a toast towards the skies
While our innocence was laid to rest

Are we old enough to forget what we know
To forget that the pain is an etch in the stone
could you steady your hand as to straighten the stitch so the scars will fade quick

When we were young and in love with the thought
That the world it was ours
That it spun around us
Could you steady your hand as to straighten the stitch so the scars will fade quick

(on my own, i’ll do it again, i’ll do it until we’re gone)

Set the sails and come with me
i’d rather die out there upon the sea
Set the sails up to the sky
I’d rather sink than wait until we die
The only way is through the storm
So lets survive and show her who we are
Lets survive and show her who we are

I am overwhelmed so I will send my final toast
Its maybe not the best we take our chances on our own
‘Cause i’m not the one not the one who can see

Brothers I am battered I am beaten I am broke
And at times it feels I’m out here on my own
‘Cause i’m not the one not the one who can see

I know that feels that we’re abandoned from this earth
Just waiting on the boat to take us back into our lives
“Cause i’m not the one not the one who can piece you whole tonight.
