1. Worlds Collide (As It Ends Tonight) (3:55)
This is when it ends

This is not the natural
Oh I can't believe what I have seen
Oh this cannot, it cannot, it cannot be real
For the waters are coming into my soul
These waters fill my weakened soul
But these demons will not drag me down to hell
They won't drag me down to hell

And all the worlds collide as it ends tonight
And all these memories slowly drift away
I'm feeling colder now as the sun burns out
And ash falls from the sky, the air's no longer mine
As it ends tonight

Come save me, oh god
The Earth is blackening
The water turns to blood
The beast is roaming and claiming
While we are down on our knees
The sirens sing their songs
While the wicked souls are standing
Right where they belong

Well each breath could be my last
So I intend to use it wisely

And all the worlds collide as it ends tonight
And all these memories slowly drift away
I'm feeling colder now as the sun burns out
And ash falls from the sky, the air's no longer mine
As it ends tonight [3x]
And all the worlds collide [4x]
As it ends tonight [2x]
And all these memories slowly drift away
I'm feeling colder now as the sun burns out
And ash falls from the sky, the air's no longer mine
As it ends tonight
2. It's Not Me, It's You (4:09)
I am the silver lining,... to get this
I swear that I live in a world you'll never see
I get the point that we were never addicted
What part of your message, forget disclosure

We were just a dream, you never had me
We were just a dream, you never had me

It's never enough or it's never too late
Never see, never see,... again
And I'm chasing what matters most, and it's not you
We had the best of intentions
But we're moving in different directions
And I am trying to choose and it's not you

How many times will have to.
You were just in the way, something better than how we've been
Is the coming... how to forget about
Lost in the sight of about disclosure

We were just a dream, you never had me
We were just a dream, you never had me

It's never enough or it's never too late
Never see, never see,... ever again
And I'm chasing what matters most and it's not you
We had the best of intentions
But we're moving in different directions
And I am trying to choose and it's not you

Just close the door, and I'll walk through

This was better than a broken heart

It's never enough or it's never too late
Never see, never see,... ever again
And I'm chasing what matters most and it's not you
We had the best of intentions
But we're moving in different directions
And I am trying to choose and it's not you

I will never let you bring me to my knees
This is the moment that I'll stand up and scream

This is my scream
3. My Body's Failing (The Undertaking) (3:51)
I sit alone in this room
These walls stained with blood
The walls are crying and it's starting to get to me
I'm ticking like a bomb
My mind is failing
My sight is failing
My lungs are failing
My body is failing
With these broken legs I'll stand up and fight
Buried deep, a victim of my own mind
It's only a matter of time
I know that I'll be just fine
I'm fighting to save myself
I try to climb my way out
Of this abyss that I've let myself become
It's getting harder for me to breathe
I don't know if I continue to live
If I can learn from my mistakes
When will I be able to live?
I can't believe that I can be saved
Where is the person I used to be?
My mind is failing
My sight is failing
My lungs are failing
With these broken legs I'll stand up and fight
Buried deep, a victim of my own mind
It's only a matter of time
I know that I'll be just fine
Inside out and upside down
A million times I do this to myself
But I, I know this is a test of my will
I'm not letting it go until I'm okay with myself
I'm not okay with myself
With these broken legs I'll stand up and fight
Buried deep, a victim of my own mind
It's only a matter of time
I know that I'll be just fine
I'm fighting to save myself
I try to climb my way out
Of this abyss that I've let myself become
I'm not giving up
4. What the Water Gave Me (Florence the Machine cover) (3:45)
Time it took us
To where the water was
That's what the water gave me
And time goes quicker
Between the two of us
Oh, my love, don't forsake me
Take what the water gave me

Lay me down
Let the only sound
Be the overflow
Pockets full of stones

Lay me down
Let the only sound
Be the overflow

And oh, poor Atlas
The world's a beast of a burden
You've been holding up a long time
And all this longing
And the ships are left to rust
That's what the water gave us

So lay me down
Let the only sound
Be the overflow
Pockets full of stones
Lay me down
Let the only sound
Be the overflow

'Cause they took your loved ones
But returned them in exchange for you
But would you have it any other way?
Would you have it any other way?
You couldn't have it any other way

'Cause she's a cruel mistress
And a bargain must be made
But oh, my love, don't forget me
When I let the water take me

So lay me down
Let the only sound
Be the over flow
Pockets full of stones

Lay me down
Let the only sound
Be the overflow

So lay me down
Let the only sound
Be the overflow
Pockets full of stones

Lay me down
Let the only sound
Be the overflow
5. Daily Gnargoyles (4:01)
Just like a thief in the night
You stole the crystal and gold, run, run
I always knew you were filth from the start
Soaked with the blood of an innocent soul
I swear I’ll find you, no matter how hard you hide, run, run
You condescending exaltation end here
A fall from a window will be a gift to the world

You think you can leave me, I’ll leave too
You’ll wish you were nothing when I’m through
This pain that you’ve left me is not how it’s ending
The end will be with you
When it’s over, said, and done
Once again will rise the sun
This pain that you’ve left me is not how it’s ending
The end will be with you

Run, run and take your insolence with you
You took our pride and now we’re taking it back
Your filthy ways are finally bringing you down now
And now we have the upper hand
And already your kingdom is falling
You thought that we were undeserving of life
And now you’ll be the one who’s falling

You think you can leave me, I’ll leave too
You’ll wish you were nothing when I’m through
This pain that you’ve left me is not how it’s ending
The end will be with you
When it’s over, said, and done
Once again will rise the sun
This pain that you’ve left me is not how it’s ending
The end will be with you

Your fall from a window will be a gift to the world
A fall from the window will be a gift to the world

When you take you final breath
And it’s lifted off my chest
I’ll stay a while just to admire
And when it’s over, said, and done
Once again will rise the sun
A brighter world, now that you’re gone
The end will be with you

You think you can leave me, I’ll leave too
You’ll wish you were nothing when I’m through
This pain that you’ve left me is not how it’s ending
The end will be with you
When it’s over, said, and done
Once again will rise the sun
This pain that you’ve left me is not how it’s ending
The end will be with you.
6. Game Over (4:03)
Incessantly you cut me down
You rip me up
From these roots that hold me down

Yo, let me take a little sec
I hope you're holding your breath
I'll tell you something that you'll never forget
So I'll put my flag in the sky
I put it up wave it high
Now you know what I'm not

Show me what you got!

So you think that you could cut me off?
After all I gave to get where I was

Look at what I've given up

I've found my way out of this open grave
You should've buried me when you had the chance
And now I'll show you that it's like to be cut down in your prime
Yeah, this time I'm not holding back

This is what it's like to be cut down in your prime
Like you were me
I always told you that this was what I'd do
And now your time has come for you

Because I've given up my whole life for this
I'll bury you six feet deep

I've found my way out of this open grave
You should've buried me when you had the chance
And now I'll show you that it's like to be cut down in your prime
Yeah, this time I'm not holding back

You must be in denial
There's nothing I won't do to reach the top again, again

I've heard that at the end of the day
There's only one thing to say
You still end up in my way
And I've earned my second chance at the top
So just as soon as it drops
Then that's the day it'll stop

If you thought this was the end of me
I hope you're holding your breath
You've chased the shadows of your past lives for far too long

I've found my way out of this open grave
You should've buried me when you had the chance
And now I'll show you that it's like to be cut down in your prime
Yeah, this time I'm not holding back
7. Far Away (3:31)
Should've known right from the start
That you were trouble and evil right all the way to the core
But I've finally seen the real side of you
So go ahead keep breaking hearts
The day is coming when you'll fall right on that pretty face of yours
That pretty face of yours
Oh yeah
I believe that I have the right to say
That you are something else entirely
So pick a hand and I can tell you the truth
Or I can tell you a lie like you continued to lie to me
Take all these memories
They never mean anything
Cause you were always far away
You were always far away
Even while right next to me
The remains of what we had
Burn with these photographs
Now it's been a year or two
Since I've seen or heard from you
So I try to lie and say you meant nothing to me
I've given everything I've had to give to you
So I don't know what you want me to be or want me to do
But one thing is for sure it was all just a joke
And by the way I hope that you choke
On every word that you said
You make me sick
I hope I never have to see you again
I hope you choke
Not a second in my day goes by
I didn't know that you were wishing you were somewhere else
With someone else
You were always far away
Even while right next to me
The remains of what we had
Burn with these photographs
Now it's been a year or two
Since I've seen or heard from you
So I try to lie and say you meant nothing to me
Are we not on the same page?
How many times do I have to say?
I'll take every excuse that you gave me
And throw it back in your face
I don't need to hear your lame excuses
I don't need to hear a word you say
I don't need to hear your lame excuses
I don't need to hear a word you say
8. My Own Way (3:50)
For the first time
I truly feel like I’m living my life
For the first time
Something feels right
So let the record show that I’ll never give it up
To anyone, for anything
It’s time to take what once was mine I’m taking back my life

What if I jump and I don’t fly?
Maybe I’m chasing after a lie
But I’ll keep hoping for a victory this time
And everyone told me all along
That these dreams I had were wrong
But I’ll keep reaching for the stars until they’re mine

I’ll keep reaching for the stars
Until they’re mine, until they’re ours
I’ll keep reaching for the stars

For the most part
I’ve been living my life too afraid to live at all
And I’ve been feeling like I’m undeserving of everything I have
But I won’t give up
Because I need these words to mean something
To someone other than me

What if I jump and I don’t fly?
Maybe I’m chasing after a lie
But I’ll keep hoping for a victory this time
And everyone told me all along
That these dreams I had were wrong
But I’ll keep reaching for the stars until they’re mine

And I will fly,
I will fly

What if I jump and I don’t fly?
Maybe I’m chasing after a lie
But I’ll keep hoping for a victory this time
And everyone told me all along
That these dreams I had were wrong
But I’ll keep reaching for the stars until they’re mine

I’ll keep reaching for the stars
Until they’re mine, until they’re ours
I’ll keep reaching for the stars

I will never second guess myself again
I will try to find my own way
I was made for something more
I’ll never give up, I’ll never give in until I get it all
This is where my path begins
My path begins.
9. Light of the World (4:25)
So this is where they left us
With nothing but a pale and a pile of dust
We have come too far
To sit and watch them tear this world apart
I think it's time we start drawing a line
We start making a change instead of wasting our time
Don't you see this is life here?
Don't you see this is a world worth fighting for?

But it's not too late, for we
For we can make a change

We will not be victims of circumstance
If this is our only chance, then we'll take what's ours
We will be more than the lost souls, a future without hope
We are the light of the world

We are the hope
For our generation
We are the hope
For the world we live in
This is the way that we fix the problem
We are the ones who control the outcome

Fight the ones who built the walls
Change the world, this is my cause
I will fight this, I will fight this til my hands are bleeding
Fight the ones who built the walls
Change the world, this is my cause
I will fight this, I will fight this til my hands are bleeding

Cause we are not the lost souls
We have something to fight for

We will not be victims of circumstance
If this is our only chance, then we'll take what's ours
We will be more than the lost souls, a future without hope
We are the light of the world

We are strong enough to let our weakness show
We've come so far and now we're finally home

We will not be victims of circumstance
If this is our only chance, then we'll take what's ours
We will be more than the lost souls, a future without hope
We are the light of the world

We are the hope
We are the hope
We are the hope
We are the light of the world
10. The Last Night (3:30)
This is when it ends

This is not the natural
Oh I can't believe what I have seen
Oh this cannot, it cannot, it cannot be real
For the waters are coming into my soul
These waters fill my weakened soul
But these demons will not drag me down to hell
They won't drag me down to hell

And all the worlds collide as it ends tonight
And all these memories slowly drift away
I'm feeling colder now as the sun burns out
And ash falls from the sky, the air's no longer mine
As it ends tonight

Come save me, oh god
The Earth is blackening
The water turns to blood
The beast is roaming and claiming
While we are down on our knees
The sirens sing their songs
While the wicked souls are standing
Right where they belong

Well each breath could be my last
So I intend to use it wisely

And all the worlds collide as it ends tonight
And all these memories slowly drift away
I'm feeling colder now as the sun burns out
And ash falls from the sky, the air's no longer mine
As it ends tonight [3x]
And all the worlds collide [4x]
As it ends tonight [2x]
And all these memories slowly drift away
I'm feeling colder now as the sun burns out
And ash falls from the sky, the air's no longer mine
As it ends tonight
11. Perspectives (2:05)
Take a look at your life now
From another perspective
Why do you do all the things that you do?
Why do you say what you say?

I know you may feel your mistakes define you
But it’s a man that defines his mistakes
So stop letting yourself down and start picking yourself up
You’ll never find any pity from me

You know this life is only as hard as you want it to be
And I just thought that I would let you know
I thought I would let you know
You’re not the only one that feels this way

Just know that you’re the only hope for yourself in the end

[2x]
I know all you really wanted was a second chance
For what it’s worth I hope you never thought of giving in

Never thought of giving in
12. The Overtaking (3:57)
Wake up, wake up
Can’t you hear them clawing at your mind?
Don’t you know that they’re the ones Who pray on those who are easy to fight?
And they’re not gonna stop
So raise your voices with me
A voice alone is not enough
But all together we’re a force to be reckoned with
And you know it’s not over yet

I’ve been sitting too long while you’ve been doing it wrong
And now it’s time for me to rise
I guess it’s time to be.... the monster that you have been making of me

Wake up, wake up
It’s our time to take control
And it’s now or never
They won’t get the best of us
We will stand our ground and keep our heads held high
Brothers and sisters they will never take us alive

You are not wise to underestimate strength in numbers
Because I know there are a million ways for you to use our minds
But there is just one thing that you forgot
We are tired of playing your twisted games
Everything you say is always the same and we’re not gonna take it

Enough

When dictatorship is a fact,
revolution becomes our right I can’t wait til the day we say
What a pleasure to burn down the industry

[3x]
Wake up, wake up
It’s our time to take control
And it’s now or never
They won’t get the best of us
We will stand our ground and keep our heads held high
Brothers and sisters they will never take us alive
