Know Hope Lyrics

1. Burn Victims
They say the things that you love will never stay,
Is that really true?
I guess you made everyone leave before they could hurt you but who taught this to you
Hurting people will always be hurting people
It was you that made me me
Every storm made me soak to find strong roots
I am reminded (I am reminded)
All my roots are starting to show yet I'm still trying to grow
And I am reminded (I am reminded) there is still hope

And I hope one day you will understand pain is just a brand
I've given my life to keep it away from you skin
And I hope one day you will understand pain is never planned
And the start of a cycle is always the end when we are the victims

And that's how I know I need to write about this for the youth that never get told the truth
That's my problem
I've got intentions on both sides stitched together with lies and more songs left to write
Do things.
Write this time about how to untangle all the knots that we kept tied
My stomach is weak because you made me me and someone made you you
We are the victims and I am the hope

And I hope one day you will understand pain is just a brand
I've given my life to keep it away from you skin
And I hope one day you will understand pain is never planned
And the start of a cycle is always the end when we are the victims

You, you are the victim and I am still learning that I can be the hope.
2. Smoke and Mirrors
If you give up on me, then I give up on everything.
I didn't come this far to not tell you the truth,
And you'll know it's true because the answers that I tell you
will make you all feel sick, feel hateful, feel useless and used.
Just remember that every piece of trash was one time itself first used.
Say the word. Say the word and I will go quickly to a light.
Too much of anyone one thing at a time will leave you blind.
Say the word and I will go quickly to a light.
Too much of anyone one thing at a time just left me blind.
You need to get through what you are going through.
Some day someone somewhere will need you.
If you give up on me, then I give up on everything.
Back and forth my reason grows,
I didn't choose this I was chose.
Back and forth my reason grows,
I didn't choose this and I want to go.
Home is where the hurt is, and no one even knows...
If you give up on me, then I give up on everything.
3. Learned Behavior
We are the same disease
One way too old
One way too young to treat
Our feet stuck in the same concrete
We just want to be free

Aren't you sick of knowing that you could truly be
Something that stays and makes a difference before it leaves
Aren't you sick of hearing all the pain in me
Aren't you sick of being sick from the same disease

Come to me with anything that you'll ever need
Come to me when you're rebuilding
Sometimes it's good to build up walls, not to keep anyone out
But to see who cares enough to knock them down

We can start again
With our names written in new cement
We can write the date
Right after we dig ourselves out of the messes we've made
You'll never know
What you have until it's gone
Through hell for you

Come to me with anything that you'll ever need
Come to me when you're rebuilding
Sometimes it's good to build up walls, not to keep anyone out
But to see who cares enough to knock them down

You'll never stop making mistakes
But if you learn from them you will never make the same ones twice
Next time there may be no next time

Come to me with anything that you'll ever need
Come to me when you're rebuilding
Sometimes it's good to build up walls, not to keep anyone out
But to see who cares enough to knock them down
4. Living Breathing Something
Question everything
Have I already been buried
I can see no light but I am still stuck here breathing
Maybe a wretch like me is supposed to stay forever buried
So you can see the analogy of what happens to you when you keep things buried beneath
I have been buried for years but why am I still breathing
I don't make mistakes
I bury them

Suffocating soul that the devil just won't claim

I dug this grave now it's time to tell the truth from it
You put one foot on the lid when did I let it close
One foot on the lid 5 feet left to go
Forgive your enemies but never forget their names

I am my own worst enemy
Suffocating soul that the devil won't claim
I don't if I believe in you anymore but everything needs an analogy
5. Strange Comfort
I know I'm lost with no motivation to find my way back
I left myself down a paper trail of the pages of my mind
Now I want them back
I'm somewhere between no courage among the other things I lack
Lost in desperation where an ember turns to an ash

Somewhere along this path I crossed the line
Broken promises I've made without thinking twice
Left my second thought and reason behind
All in the name of making the world mine

All in the name of building my own
Why do I think that I have to live this life alone?

I know I'm lost

I know, I know I'm lost
I know, I know I'm lost
But what scares me the most is I'm starting to feel at home

I know, I know I can't stay here forever
When we lose ourselves we find each other

I find this strange comfort in being lost in life
Wherever I end up
Will I belong there this time

So when you feel your heart sing into your chest
Don't forget everything is OK in the end
We are not OK but this is not the end yet
We are not OK but this is not the end yet

We are not OK but this is not the end

I know, I know I'm lost
I know, I know I'm lost
But what scares me the most is I'm starting to feel at home

I know, I know I can't stay here forever
When we lose ourselves we find each other
6. In Light in Me
How am I supposed to write about hope with catchy hooks and melodies and make you sing along
Well I titled this whole album before I tried to write a song
And the truth is hope can be a burning sun
The closer that you seem to get the quicker you get lost in the sight of
It keeps casting it's shadow of our burdens behind us and the more we try stand inside the light
The more a darkness seems to grow
Is darkness the shade where I've found peace

So maybe this time I need to be standing for someone to believe
Like a weathered oak with know hope carved in me
So maybe this time I need to be standing for someone to believe
You can take the life from me but I'll always be here standing, still
Every time you need me
Hope is at the root but each day
It's still casting a shadow of my darkness behind me
And the more I try to show you with the light
The more a darkness seems to follow
You will never change what you refuse to face
Like a shadow we always grow every time we try to find the light

So maybe this time I need to be standing for someone to believe
Like a weathered oak with know hope carved in me
So maybe this time I need to be standing for someone to believe
You can take the life from me
Maybe this time I need to be
Maybe this time I need to be me
You don't know who you are anymore
Tonight I don't know either but we are standing still

We can't be moved
When hope is at the root of you
Every time the wind grows still and I continue to lose movement
You are there to walk up chin down and carve your name
Every time the wind grows still and life pushes you further
Come carve your name
Know hope in me
7. Silver Lining
some days you're the pigeon and some days you are the statue
some days you're meant to just sit back and observe while the worlds takes it's turn and just shits all over you
some days you need the rain because no one gets paid to come clean up the messes that life makes all over you
I don't know who I am in this moment
I know I disappoint you
you don't know who I am anymore
well that makes two of us
are you following a god and this song got in the way
I'm sorry I'm sorry but I am not sorry
is this the truth, the light, the sight, the roots, or the noose
everyone is religious only until they don't need to be anymore
that's not faith no not to me
all I have let to make are memories and mistakes
and new questions I'll take to the grave
do you know how it feels to have your past sink it's teeth right into your back
only to turn around and see yourself
keep the hell away from me
the devil you know is better than the devil you don't
keep the hell away from me
you can still lead a positive life with a negative mind
keep the hell away from me
Silver lining
8. Steadfast
We've been deserted, that doesn't mean that we deserve it
Is it worth it, keeping ourselves at bay
Set sail, you've spent way too much time living your life, in exile
To say goodbye, to the shoreline

Maybe if I'm sent off to sea, I'll find out what this means to me
I've got a message I carry, that I have forgotten to read

Maybe if I'm sent off to sea, I'll find out what this means to me
I've got a message I carry, that I have forgotten to read

I don't need another day, floating away
Lost in the sea of regret I've made
I want to wash up new for once
For once I don't want to float face down

We've been deserted, that doesn't mean that we deserve it
Is it worth it, keeping ourselves at bay

You can try and fail, but don't fail to try
Do I deserve this
If you're deserted, you can't desert it
You can never leave an island in your mind until you lose sight of the shoreline
You can try and fail, but don't fail to try
Some people spend their entire lives in exile
You can't never leave, an island until you lose sight of the shoreline
Times like these they come in waves
Make your footprint and send it right back away

All you're saying to me tonight, here in the open skyline
Without darkness, no star can learn to guide the way

Maybe if I'm sent off to sea, I'll find out what this means to me
I've got a message I carry, that I have forgotten to read

Maybe if I'm sent off to sea, I'll find out what this means to me
I've got a message I carry, that I have forgotten to read

You are not as lost as me
You are not as lost as me

No your not, no your not as lost as me
If you were and you were I wouldn't be here writing

No your not, no your not as lost as me
If you were if you were I wouldn't be here writing

Some day you will find me
9. Hole Hearted
Am I stuck inside my own mind or am I just an insect in amber frozen in a moment and forgotten in time
Where is my mind
I don't want the world to see me I want the world to see where it is I've been
I just want someone to feel like they can be something
There's got to be more than feeling this alone

I've been through enough to leave me alone
Now I feel so confused
Maybe I was made to learn on my own

I don't want to go to the grave wondering what I could have made
Will I ever change
I don't want to live day by day wondering if I'll ever change
Get back
I don't want to live day by day
It's never too late to make the change
Everyone you've known
These moments you're lost and alone
You've pushed everyone away even when they tried to stay
Where did this come from
Enough is enough

I've been through enough to leave me alone
Now I feel so confused
Maybe I was made to learn on my own

I can't do this on my own
10. Saviorself
I wish I had more time to sort out all of this inside my mind
I only have one day
it's given at dawn and at dusk it gets taken away
I can't control what I think
so how can I control what I say
I don't know who I am at the moment and I can't pray
I can't pray for the answers anymore
I only have myself to blame for losing control
I've always needed something maybe I needed to be alone
and I don't need to be saved
I'm not saying that it's too late
but way too much has changed
you call it savior
and I call it a learned behavior
you call it the light I refuse to see
and I call it the mask I've seen underneath
just do and say the same thing
no opinion preserved in stained glass holds more moral truth to me
I only have myself to blame for losing control
I still need to be saved just not by you
I just need to be safe
but not by you
11. Have. Will
And I owe it all to you
This change must fall on your
Change for everyone else and you'll do things backwards
Nothing works out itself
Move on
So stop running away
I can feel you cause your feet are keeping time with me
How could anyone choose to live this way
In the past they won't escape
We are the same you and me
No direction and a steady pace
Some of us don't choose to live this way
Maybe the best part of you was waiting for your past to die

This change must fall on your
Change for everyone else and you'll do things backwards
Nothing works out itself
Move along

Today one step can lead to many
And I want you to run in time with me not away
It's so much easier to just breathe in the air than it is to exist in it

Sometimes we carry ourselves only as dead weight
Sometimes it takes your whole world falling apart
To really know what you stand for
What do you stand for
Life falls apart but did you ever see where every piece could land
Maybe pieces of you were preplanned to fall apart
So they could fall together
So they fall in place for someone else

And you said that you needed a voice
And I needed a reason
To believe
Believe in yourself because you are the same as me
No one every changes if they don't change for themselves
You're not alone
How are we supposed to live
How are we supposed to breathe
How are we supposed to carry on with all of this buried

This change must fall on you
Change for everyone else and you'll live your life backwards
I understand you
You're not evil despite what they may say
12. Never Enders
And I'm too abused to walk away from this
Of all I've been through I just wouldn't change it
If I could go back in time and change everything
I wouldn't change a thing because it made me who I am
And I'm so confused
I don't seem to know what's real or what's make believe anymore but I must move forward for you
And do this all for you
Without you there is no me and I'll stay even if you choose to leave
The world will always keep turning it's back on me
And I just wouldn't change it

If I could go back in time and change everything I wouldn't change a thing because it made me
I am not leaving this room tonight until I know that I've changed at least one life
And you are not leaving not knowing, not knowing how you are changing mine

Please don't sing louder than me unless your singing with a heart backing a beat
Then you'll know there's a reason for this song to find you and sing along

This is not another singalong
This is one breath made from different lungs
