Found in Far Away Places Lyrics

1. The Wake (3:26)
Destroy everything cleanse
Wipe away the filth
Set fire to your waste
Burn everything
Back into dirt
Burn everything

Flood, drown the earth
Flood, drown the earth
It's what we deserve

Rehash the poisons
You breathe in the air
Tear down what you say your father created
Constructing buildings over buildings
Conceal history like a shameful scar
This world has lived for a million years with more to come
It's only a matter of time until you choke on your indifference
Struggling to breathe as the water fills your lungs
Trying hard to scream as it rises into your throat

The reckless, the careless
Will reign until the oceans rise

Flood, drown the earth
Flood, drown the earth
It's what we deserve
It's what we deserve
It's what we deserve
It's what we deserve
It's what we deserve

This world has lived for a million years with more to come
It's only a matter of time until you choke on your indifference
Struggling to breathe as the water fills your lungs
Trying hard to scream as it rises into your throat

Wake up
And save yourself
The sea will reclaim
What it worked to create
Wake up
Save yourself
Pick up the pieces
Ask for forgiveness
2. Martyr (4:35)
Demand what you will never deserve
Respect is gained by trust shown and earned
Don't mask your pride with humility,
While forcing others to keep proving their loyalty

You've been a hypocrite for years,
Drawing swords as much as you draw their tears
Demand what you will never deserve
Respect is gained by trust shown and earned

You build your strength off of your anger,
Fighting a selfish battle with no answer
Your transparency has started showing
Don't let fear guide you where you are going

You would die for everyone else,
But you won't live for yourself

Do you mean what you say?
Do you say what you mean,
Or will you find another lie
Another lie to hide behind?
Keep speaking to the world about
What you can't forget, you can't forget
All the things you hold onto,
Refusing to forgive those that hurt you

You're taking steps on a fine line, so you don't have to choose a side
Good deeds are not recognized, when the heart's intent is full of pride
You're taking steps on a fine line, so you don't have to choose a side
Good deeds are not recognized, when the heart's intent is full of pride
One day we hope you stop holding it on all in, and learn to let go and to forgive (forgive)
3. Identity (4:19)
Do you know how it feels to hide
with thoughts repressed deep down inside?
I guess you just loved the lie.
Truth is, you can’t decide where my heart resides.

You want to cure me of this epidemic, you call me sick.
I wish I had said it, the words to admit to you who I am.
My entire life I was dealt the wrong hand
and cast aside from the man that I am.

I’ve never felt so free.
It kills me to hear you say you “choose to love me.”
I was hoping that would be a given, given our history.
I’ve never felt so free, so free

You think I’m wrong, you think I’m wrong
but I never felt better.

Stop living in denial, stop loving the lie.
I thought blood was thicker than water.
You think I’m wrong but I never felt better. [2x]

I know I disappointed you,
but I’ve got nothing to prove.

You want to cure me of this epidemic, you call me sick.
I wish I had said it, the words to admit to you who I am.
My entire life I was dealt the wrong hand,
but now I’ve realized this is who I am.
I’ve made my decision, you’re either with or against me.

You’re either with or against me. [2x]

Stop living in denial, stop loving the lie.
I thought blood was thicker than water.
You think I’m wrong but I never felt better.

Stop living in denial, stop loving the lie.

I’m standing firm. It’s who I am.
You can’t keep me, you can’t keep me down.
Iʼm moving on. I’m living free.
You canʼt stop me, you canʼt stop me now. [2x]
4. Separating the Seas (4:19)
This place isn't meant for people like you
Spouting ideals for your fans to consume
You're insignificant, like an ant in the midst of elephants
You're all the same
You know you won't last forever
You're all the same
A flavor of the week is how you'll be remembered
You're all the same

Pulling your so-called burdens off of your back,
throwing them overboard along the rest
Ignoring the pioneers, insulting your peers
Did it feel good to get that off your chest?

Dragging us miles and miles through the mud,
our faces battered and bruised
We'll pick ourselves up out of the hole that you dug,
reaching and clawing to pull you under

The tides will turn, and justice will be served

"Self-righteous" isn't a term saved for the religious
The tides will turn
Justice will be served, while I carve you to pieces with my words
Your legend will fade
No one will remember your name
You know you won't last forever
You're all the same
A flavor of the week is how you'll be remembered
You're all the same
No one will remember your name
5. Ghosts (4:49)
We are the ghosts of the midway, the beasts of the alley
We are the living dead, living in your nightmares
Scraping ourselves from the earth
Living as though we are dirt
Staring like you’ve seen a ghost
The lowest of the low with nowhere to go

Back from the dead, now we’re groveling at your feet
Handcuffed for lying our heads as we’re withering in the streets
Back from the dead, now we’re groveling at your feet
Handcuffed for lying our heads as we’re withering in the streets

Fighting for your attention, begging for your generosity
Looking up just to see you turn your cheek on me
You walk on by like I’m invisible (Invisible)
All I want is to be seen as an equal

We fought your battles, and we built your homes
Sorry if I disturbed you
I just wish we could live like you do

Even in our most beautiful days it’s dark
Just look at the world around you
There’s a consequence for what we do
Pass judgment on me as you walk
Picture perfect ain’t my obsession
You can’t sum up my life from a first impression
Learn your lesson

Act like you know me, but do you even know yourself?
When you got nothin’, you got nothin’ to lose
Act like you know me, but do you even know yourself?
When you got nothin’, you got nothin’ to lose

I may have no one else to blame, but listen to me
You and I, we were once the same
I may have no one else to blame, but listen to me
You and I, we were once the same
I may have no one else to blame, but listen to me
You and I, we were once the same
I may have no one else to blame, but listen to me
You and I, we were once the same
6. Majoring In The Minors (4:18)
These windy streets tell of a different time
What got us here won't get us there
It's time for the upright to have insight
Don't forget what's important in life
This place is like a cage that will imprison you
Is comfort only found without adversity?
Anyone, anywhere in history, has confronted these realities

What got us here won't get us there
I'll be there soon that's why I care

Everyone you love will one day fade away
Everything you have will rot and decay
Everything around us will burn
Burn up in the death of the sun

It's in the pain that we see our true selves change
In the sea of difficulty we are defined
When we're blind we will feel our true selves change
In the sea of difficulty we leave our comfort behind

We are found, found in far away places, when all seems lost
We are found, found in far away places, not all is lost

We are found in far away places, when all seems lost
We are found in far away places. Not all is lost

We must be strong and cling onto hope (cling onto hope)
We must be strong, when the ground is shifting out from under our feet

Stop majoring in the minors
It's when you get inside that it widens
Stay true tempered (stay true tempered)
You're not the first to find life is tough

Circumstantial hope isn't really hope at all
It's just a watered down distraction from what stands in our way
Hope gives us the ability to face reality, the ability to see through it all
7. Everlasting Ending (5:09)
Ordinary men don't find their own way (find their own way)
It's in the struggle that we can finally see
I'll never forget how I felt so far away when fear waged war and wore down on me

What do you say when you can't get the words out?
Can you hear me?
Don't let me down
What do you say when you can't get the words out?
Can you hear me?
Don't let me down
Can you hear me?
Don't let me down

Put your fear away
Push it off the edge so that left is who you are
Stand tall against the waves in the ocean
You must be brave when it's sink or swim

Rest comes to the weary
We're so tired of losing (we're so tired of losing)

The sun will break through
You'll get what you need (you'll get what you need)
The sun will break through
You'll get what you need

Wait to speak until you find the words to say
They'll come
I promise they'll come
You'll hear them out loud without forcing the words out.
Put all your fear away

Ordinary men don't find their own way
It's in the struggle that we can finally see
I'll never forget how I felt so far away
when fear waged war and wore down on me

Bravery will find you when your head is hung low
Your fear is like a fever
It too will go
8. Broken Promises (6:12)
You've given up on us
You've taken all I've made and all I've become
You've given up on us
Just another empty promise by those I love

Pushing me down flat on the ground trying to escape the pain
I needed you to meet me half way, but I'm left abandoned with nothing more to say
I thought family was forever
I thought family stuck together
What's done is done
I'm too far gone
I've never felt so alone

Accept what you've done and rise to the challenge (rise to the challenge)
Stop pointing the blame
There's no on left to betray
You're full of broken promises

These days are dark, filled with heavy clouds pouring on me
I'll keep giving while you keep taking, as my trust in you is breaking
I see now my sacrifice got left by the wayside
You've given up on us
You've taken all I've made and all I've become
You've given up on us
Just another empty promise by those I love

Put your arms in the air
Just another empty promise by those I love
Prove your worth, and part the sky for me
9. Blackwood (4:42)
There is no hope for me, at least I know
I know what I believe, and now I see
No longer will we be fooled, you say
There is no hope for me, at least I know
I know what I believe, and now I see
No longer will we be fooled

White skin, white teeth, black heart, black lungs
Sleeping on your stacks of millions
As your followers struggle to overcome, overcome
Sickness, poverty, heartbreak, hatred are dealt with every day
You can't relate
You can't remember a single name
Stare into a screen before you'll look them in the eyes
You'll never change a life until you know
Everything you say sounds like a lie
Blessed by the hands of God, or cursed by the tongue of the devil?
Who do you serve?

No more ignorance, no more complacency
Behind your white skin and white teeth
Lies a heart so black it makes the abyss look bright
You say, you say, there is no hope for me

If a rich man can't get into heaven, where will you dwell?
If a rich man can't ascend, will I see you in hell?
You say, there is no hope for me, at least I know
I know what I believe, and now I see
No longer will we be fooled, you say
There is no hope for me, at least I know
I know what I believe, and now I see
No longer will we be fooled
10. Twenty-One Grams (4:53)
As I follow you, where will you lead me?
To the ends of the world, or is that just the beginning?
I've rolled through villages
And done my best to pass on your name
How much is too much?
How far is too far?
As I push on and leave everything behind
The front line swears I'm going into battle blind
A life dedicated to what I can't see
Still grasping what I was told to believe

What kind of cruel truth only presents itself
In the moment you die?
In the moment you die

The facts are becoming less and less transparent
Constantly mixed with the thoughts of the incoherent
Dig deep, they're hidden beneath centuries of dust and dirt
Covered up by the evolution of the earth
I'm struggling with the blessing of the unseen
It's harder and harder to not be accusing
Continuing to draw the lines of acceptance
I'm trying and trying to translate the evidence

Why do we owe anyone repentance? Repentence
While seeking answers to these questions? These questions
Why do we owe anyone repentance? Repentance
While seeking answers to these questions? Questions

We don't owe, we don't owe
We don't owe, we don't owe
Anyone repentance
We don't owe, we don't owe, repentance

As I follow you, where will you lead me?
To the ends of the world, or is that just the beginning?

The only time you'll ever know if you chose the right side
Is when you close your eyes for the very last time
Question, all that you knew
Question, It's how you'll find the truth
Question, question
It will only make you stronger
Question, all that you knew
Question, It's how you'll find the truth
Question, question
It will only make you stronger
11. Vanguard (5:39)
Wave goodbye, as we turn our backs on our past
Wave goodbye, cut our future short to pave a new path
Wave goodbye, we dropped it all on a dime to be on our own
Wave goodbye, as we make the escape into the unknown

We pushed through shattering expectations
Filled with dreams, filled with heartache

We pushed through shattering expectations
Filled with dreams, filled with heartache

We're still standing strong, standing strong
As we keep living on, living on

Free fall
Close your eyes and take the dive
Free fall
Close your eyes and take the dive
Free fall
Close your eyes, and take the dive
This is your new purpose in life,
This is your new purpose in life
Free fall
Close your eyes, and take the dive
This is your new purpose in life,
This is your new purpose in life
Free fall
Close your eyes, and take the dive
This is your new purpose in life,
This is your new purpose in life
Free Fall
This is your new purpose in life,
This is your new purpose in life
