Submitted by level Hermit
Disc 1  
1. Survive (3:34)
Sometimes I feel alone in a million crowd
An outside wandering alone without
Any words to say, they can't explain
The desire to overcome the pain
Feel the breath that's always getting away
Am I dreaming it all? I will never be afraid

I'll survive, in this nothing leading nowhere
I'll survive, feeling stronger for how much longer?
I'll survive, in this nothing leading nowhere
I'll survive, I survive

A voice inside of me that keeps on teasing
As sweet as like a whisper from the lips of pain
And so many steps that I can't make
I can't take the chance, release the break
And the breath just keeps on getting away
Am I dreaming it all? I will never be afraid

I'll survive, in this nothing leading nowhere
I'll survive, feeling stronger for how much longer?
I'll survive, in this nothing leading nowhere
I'll survive, I survive

I'll survive, in this nothing leading nowhere
I'll survive, feeling stronger for how much longer?
I'll survive, in this nothing leading nowhere
I'll survive, feeling stronger for how much longer?
I'll survive, in this nothing leading nowhere
I'll survive, I survive
2. I Won't Tell You (3:48)
I cannot tell you you're falling apart
Open your eyes if you wanna survive
I want to tell you your love is a lie
But I won't tell you, I won't tell you

I can't leave this, I am fine inside it
I don't feel bliss and I just keep hiding
I've been burnt so bad but I still play with fire
Sometimes naked truth is what I don't believe in

I cannot tell you you're falling apart
Open your eyes if you wanna survive
I want to tell you your love is a lie
But I won't tell you, I won't tell you
I cannot get so deep into this now
I can't admit that I know what I know
And I want to tell you your love is a lie
I won't tell you, I won't tell you

It's hard to hear through the static again
It's never clear until the rush of pain
I'll never tell you I'm living a lie
In this confusion I feel alive
I've been burnt so bad but I still play with fire
Sometimes naked truth is what I can't believe in

I cannot tell you you're falling apart
Open your eyes if you wanna survive
I want to tell you your love is a lie
But I won't tell you, I won't tell you
I cannot get so deep into this now
I can't admit that I know what I know
And I want to tell you your love is a lie
I won't tell you, I won't tell you

Don't ever tell me I'm falling apart
Don't ever tell me I will not survive
Don't ever tell me this love is a lie
'Cause I'm the lie, I'm the liar

I cannot tell you you're falling apart
Open your eyes if you wanna survive
I want to tell you your love is a lie
But I won't tell you, I won't tell you
I cannot get so deep into this now
I can't admit that I know what I know
And I want to tell you your love is a lie
I won't tell you, I won't tell you
I won't tell you
3. Not Enough (3:40)
I don't want to be saved, I want to go down with you
Together we will find a way to come back
Come back
Come back

I don't want to be saved, I want to go down with you
Together we will find a way to come back

I thought it was too late
I thought you disappeared
It's been a while since I believed in you
I used to have the strength
I used to just walk away
But now that I see you
It's not enough, it's not enough

I don't want to be saved, I want to go down with you
Together we will find a way to come back

I'm falling once again
I'm following the way
Nothing's changed since I believed in you
I knew that you would come
I thought that I'd be afraid
But now that I have you
It's not enough, it's not enough

I don't want to be saved, I want to go down with you
Together we will find a way to come back

Forgotten fears
I throw away all of the caution out into the wind
My soul is thirsty
And I'm dreaming of you, get out of my mind
Come back (get out of my mind)
Come back (get out of my mind)

I don't want to be saved, I want to go down with you
Together we will find a way to come back
I don't want to be saved, I want to give in to you
Together we will find a way to come back
4. I'm Not Afraid (3:22)
Watch your back because I am coming closer
Shivers down your spine, you were not expecting me
How does it feel to be faced in your territory?
Are you afraid to see me here?

I'm not afraid
To take my time
To live my life
The way I want to
I'm not afraid
To take you down
And live my life
As I want to
I'm not afraid

Closer but apart, no one else can hear us
Get out of that car, did you wanna leave without me?
How does it feel to be faced in your territory?
Are you surprised to see me here?

I'm not afraid
To take my time
To live my life
The way I want to
I'm not afraid
To take you down
And live my life
As I want to
I'm not afraid

I'm not afraid
To take my time
To live my life
The way I want to
I'm not afraid
To take you down
And live my life
As I want to
I'm not afraid
To take my time
To live my life
The way I want to
I'm not afraid
To take you down
And live my life
As I want to
I'm not afraid
5. I Like It (3:42)
Everything is different today
I like it, like it
I feel very different today
I like it, like it

I'm not gonna be in your parade
'Cause I don't like it
You think I'm a dirty little game
You think I like it
You made up this fantasy with me
But I don't like it
I want you to get away with me
That's how I like it
How do you like it?

Today I'm gonna fly (I'm gonna fly)
There's nothing that can keep me on the ground
Touch the sky. I'm free inside

You think you're the master, I'm the slave
You think I like it
You don't even know me anyway
That's how I like it
I am getting ready to move on
But you don't like it
You can kiss your fairytale away
I like it, like it
How do you like it?

Today I'm gonna fly (I'm gonna fly)
There's nothing that can keep me on the ground
Touch the sky. I'm free inside
Today I'm gonna fly (I'm gonna fly)
There's nothing that can keep me on the ground
Touch the sky. I'm free inside

I'm free to do what I like
I'm celebrating my life
I'm free to be what I like
I'm celebrating my life
I'm gonna get what I like
I'm gonna celebrate 'till I die
I'm celebrating my life

Today I'm gonna fly (I'm gonna fly)
There's nothing that can keep me on the ground
Touch the sky. I'm free inside
Today I'm gonna fly (I'm gonna fly)
There's nothing that can keep me on the ground
Touch the sky. I'm free inside

I'm free to do what I like
I'm celebrating my life
Free inside
I'm free to be what I like
I'm celebrating my life
Free inside
6. Underdog (3:40)
You are going down
You are going down
You are going down

Down at the bottom I have found
I cannot wait to get back in the fight
And send you straight to the ground
Hide and seeking when I'm on the ropes
You wanna knock me down, knock me out
Your cheaps shots are denied

You're going down now
You can't kill my soul, kill my dream
Kill my soul, kill my dream
You can't kill my soul, kill my dream
Back down

You are going down
You are going down
You are going down

Now, you will understand me now
You don't want to come back to the fight
I've been the underdog all my life
I can feel it, I will not stop
Until I see you down on the ground
'Cause I am still alive

You're going down now
You can't kill my soul, kill my dream
Kill my soul, kill my dream
You can't kill my soul, kill my dream
Back down
You can't kill my soul, kill my dream
Kill my soul, kill my dream
You can't kill my soul, kill my dream

You are going down
You are going down
You are going down
You are going down

You can't kill my soul, kill my dream
You are going down
You can't kill my soul, kill my dream
You are going down
You can't kill my soul, kill my dream
You are going down
You can't kill my soul, kill my dream
You are going down

You are going down
You are going down
You are going down
You are going down
7. The Pain (4:00)
I wake up to a smoking gun
The evidence is in your head
There's no proof of guilt or innocence
I'm finished with you taking me through
A line of questioning that feeds you
I'm must confess I'm here to kill the pain

To kill the pain
To kill the pain
To kill the pain
To kill the pain

What can I do?
To kill the pain
How hard I fight?
To kill the pain
No matter how
To kill the pain
How long I've tried

The sword of justice in your hand
You cut me down, sharp like a blade
You make me want to never trust again
I'm finished with you draging me through
More lies and deceipt that feeds you
I'm must confess I'm here to kill the pain

To kill the pain
To kill the pain
To kill the pain
To kill the pain

What can I do?
To kill the pain
How hard I fight?
To kill the pain
No matter how
To kill the pain
How long I've tried
What can I do?
To kill the pain
How hard I fight?
To kill the pain
No matter how
To kill the pain
How long I've tried

Doesn't matter, if it mattered I would never have tried
To save us both from losing our minds
Doesn't matter if you shatter me now
I have to get away
The rain comes, the rain comes
Nothing's gonna buy you time
The rain comes, the rain comes
You know it's gonna come

What can I do?
To kill the pain
How hard I fight?
To kill the pain
No matter how
To kill the pain
How long I've tried
What can I do?
To kill the pain
How hard I fight?
No matter how
How long I've tried
8. Spellbound (3:21)
Burning here, in the room
Feeling that the walls are moving closer
Sight and seen, the dark takes me
Leads me to the ending of another day
I'm haunted

Tell me who you are. I am spellbound
You cannot have this control of me
Everywhere I go I am spellbound
I will break the spell you put on me

Velvet drapes, glowing candles
Silent whispers of words inside of my head
The nighttime comes, it waits for me
Leads me to the ending of another day
I'm haunted

Tell me who you are. I am spellbound
You cannot have this control of me
Everywhere I go I am spellbound
I will break the spell you put on me

On me... On me... Break this spell...

Tell me who you are. I am spellbound
You cannot have this control of me
Everywhere I go I am spellbound
I will break the spell you put on me

Everywhere I go I am spellbound
Everywhere I go I am spellbound
Everywhere I go I am spellbound
I will break the spell you put on me
9. Wide Awake (3:51)
The rebel inside a mind of my own
I haven't felt right sinse the moment that I gave up
I challenged my limits, I'm feeling I'm becomming limitless
I take it all and inhale

I'm wide awake
Open my eyes and the sky's so blue
All of a sudden I know that I treasure my life
I find myself wide awake like you

The struggle within, now I understand
Freedom begins when you get out of the cage you built
It looks like I'm crazy, but I'm not the only one
To believe in myself, believe in myself, I won't becoming undone

'Cause I feel like I'm wide awake
Open my eyes and the sky's so blue
All of a sudden I know that I treasure my life
I find myself wide awake like you

I'm wide awake
Open my eyes and the sky's so blue
All of a sudden I know that I treasure my life
All of a sudden I know that I treasure my life
Like you
10. The Maze (3:38)
My thoughs can be so vicious
Committed to a plan
The fear becomes ambitious
Taking me till I am gone

I don't know how it starded beating up myself
I've come to realize I barely carry on each day
This life is so destructive, it's blowing out my mind
My breath is running short, I'm lost here
(Deep inside, deep inside)

In this maze
I'm running through the halls of emptiness
In this maze
I can't find the way to get back to the end
In this maze
I'm feeling like I'm stuck inside a cage
In this maze
I won't feel the breeze 'till I break this maze and run

I don't know how it starded thinking to myself
I've come to realize I couldn't carry on each day
This vibe is so destructive, I'm smoking up my mind
So by the time she left I was lost here
(Deep inside, deep inside)

In this maze
I'm running through the halls of emptiness
In this maze
I can't find the way to get back to the end
In this maze
I'm feeling like I'm stuck inside a cage
In this maze
I won't feel the breeze 'till I break this maze and run

Will I ever see the sun
Shining through the prison clouds?
In the darkness you can hide
Go inside, free your mind

In this maze
I'm running through the halls of emptiness
In this maze
I can't find the way to get back to the end
In this maze
I'm feeling like I'm stuck inside a cage
In this maze
I can't find the way to get back to the end
In this maze
I can't find the way to get back to the end
In this maze
I won't feel the breeze 'till I break this maze
Break this maze and run
11. Unchained (3:22)
Unchained
Unchained
Unchained
Unchained

There's nothing up ahead or down the road
The streets won't last forever
There's nothing left to loose
I cannot see myself inside this dream
I know nothing lasts forever
Nothing lasts forever

Unchained
I'm like a bullet set free now
Unchained
I'm like a weapon unleased now

Now I found my way to solid ground
I left behind the feeling
That I've been a fool
I feel much stronger now, I am not the same
You know nothing lasts forever
Nothing lasts forever

Unchained
I'm like a bullet set free now
Unchained
I'm like a weapon unleased now
Unchained
I'm like a bullet set free now
Unchained
I'm like a weapon unleased now

Unchained
Unchained
Unchained
Unchained
12. Shallow Life (4:00)
(I never thought I'd be a soldier
I take my place inside the battle
I've come to realize the journey is over
Realize that life is sober)

Everyday I'm like a soldier
Waking up within the battle
And through the haze I live a dream that's better
Than what I feel inside, digging in me

Suffering darkness in my eyes against the light of Rome
I see the reflection of the ghost that I've become
Waiting behind the windows, I resign to be alone
I want to feel alone and lost in this solitude

Shallow life
I'll stay close to the ground
Shallow life
The walls keep falling down
I close my eyes
I'll find my way around
In the shallow life

(Welcome to the bottom line
The bottom line, the bottom line)

Suffering darkness in my eyes against the night of Rome
I get confused and all I hear is just myself
I will resign and search for peace of mind, I'm on my own
I need to be alone and lost in this solitude

Shallow life
I'll stay close to the ground
Shallow life
The walls keep falling down
I close my eyes
I'll find my way around
In the shallow life

The walls keep falling
Shallow life
I'll stay close to the ground
Shallow life
The walls keep falling down
I close my eyes
I'll find my way around
In the shallow life
Shallow life

(Welcome to the bottom line
The bottom line, the bottom line)
 
Disc 2  
1. The Last Goodbye (4:13)
Whatever you did to me
You gotta, you gotta tell me now
Why do we look like strangers?
Whatever I did to you
No excuses for this silence
Tell me what you're thinking I'll be there for you

So many stories told, too many useless words
Maybe because it's getting dark inside

This is the last goodbye
These broken dreams have been resigned
Here's to our last goodnight
These broken dreams have been resigned

Will this set us both free?
You gotta, you gotta, you gotta
Tell me what you're thinking 'cuz I just don't understand it
Whatever I did to you
No excuses for this silence
Tell me what you're thinking I'll be listening

So many stories told, too many useless words
Maybe because it's getting dark inside

This is the last goodbye
These broken dreams have been resigned
Here's to our last goodnight
These broken dreams have been resigned

Why should I care when it will be alright?
Once separate ways we'll feel alive again
So many stories told, too many useless words
Maybe because it's getting dark inside

This is the last goodbye
These broken dreams have been resigned
Here's to our last goodnight
These broken dreams have been resigned

The last goodbye
The last goodbye
The last goodbye
The last goodbye
2. Leaving Alone (4:08)
Here today, I think I must have changed my mind
as I'm looking at things from a different side

I get up and fight off, the guilt last night
pushing back the fear
I will be my guide no one by my side
the only road, just me myself and I

I'm leaving alone tonight
I'm leaving the trust behind
I'm leaving alone tonight
I'm leaving it all behind

let the journey start, I finally freed myself
from the jealousy and revenge I have felt
I got out in time and I'm moving fine
I'll live to tell the tale
I will be my guide, no one by my side
this fearless road, just me myself and I

I'm leaving alone tonight
I'm leaving the trust behind
I'm leaving alone tonight
I'm leaving it all behind

I can't awake this, it has slowly faded
you have made me feel so understated
this is the hurt that you have knowingly created
we have now become so overrated

I'm leaving alone tonight
I'm leaving the trust behind
I'm leaving alone tonight
I'm leaving it all behind
3. Oblivion (4:08)
It's a fairytale
And the story is out of date
Nothing that I haven't tried to say
You know that the road is lonely
I will need some help
You know that this life is crazy
I will need some help

There's a place far below
The darkness deep within
It's a place I don't belong
Come set me free from this oblivion

All inside of me
On the edge of agony
Nothing left for me that I can think
You know that the road is lonely
I will need some help
You know that this life is crazy
I will need some help

There's a place far below
The darkness deep within
It's a place I don't belong
Come set me free from this oblivion

It's a fairytale
And the story is out of date
Nothing that I haven't tried to say

And I
I keep wandering away
I'm so deep in disarray
I keep wandering

There's a place far below
The darkness deep within
It's a place I don't belong
Come set me free, set me free

I keep wondering (set me free)
I keep wondering (set me free)
I keep wondering (set me free)
Come set me free, set me free
I keep wondering (set me free)
I keep wondering (set me free)
I keep wondering (set me free)
Come set me free from this oblivion
4. Spellbound (Acoustic Version) (2:52)
Burning here, in the room
Feeling that the walls are moving closer
Sight and seen, the dark takes me
Leads me to the ending of another day
I'm haunted

Tell me who you are. I am spellbound
You cannot have this control of me
Everywhere I go I am spellbound
I will break the spell you put on me

Velvet drapes, glowing candles
Silent whispers of words inside of my head
The nighttime comes, it waits for me
Leads me to the ending of another day
I'm haunted

Tell me who you are. I am spellbound
You cannot have this control of me
Everywhere I go I am spellbound
I will break the spell you put on me

On me... On me... Break this spell...

Tell me who you are. I am spellbound
You cannot have this control of me
Everywhere I go I am spellbound
I will break the spell you put on me

Everywhere I go I am spellbound
Everywhere I go I am spellbound
Everywhere I go I am spellbound
I will break the spell you put on me
5. Closer (Acoustic Version) (3:36)
Want to get closer, in too deep
Where there is something I wish for I'll go through
Want to get closer into you

No hell to discover
I've got it all inside myself
Salvation you have preached is gone
No way, you can't turn it around

Looking for a higher ground (higher)
Searching for this something missed before (searching for more)
From a higher ground (higher)
Will I fall in a right direction? (searching for more)

Falling apart there's nothing real
That will convince me to change but I'll go through
Want to get closer into you

No hell to discover
There is just nothing to betray
Salvation you have preached is gone
No way, you can't turn it around

Looking for a higher ground (higher)
Searching for this something missed before (searching for more)
From a higher ground (higher)
Will I fall in a right direction? (searching for more)

Looking for a higher ground (higher)
Searching for this something missed before (searching for more)
From a higher ground (higher)
Will I fall in a right direction? (searching for more)

Looking for a higher ground
Searching for this something missed before
From a higher ground (higher)
Will I fall in a right direction? (searching for more)

Looking for a higher ground (higher)
Searching for this something missed before (searching for more)
From a higher ground (higher)
Will I fall down into your arms? (searching for more)
6. Within Me (Acoustic Version) (3:14)
Something about you that makes me feel bad
I wasn't there when a thin line destroyed your soul

I search every corner
There's nowhere to hide how I feel
Ignorance sacrifice
Some days it's harder
Let's face it, it's all about me
Deeply into your own

Deep within me
Life's crawling and wasting my days
Another night gone and I know there
Will be another way
I'm leading myself to be free
In this eternal goodbye

Something about you will make me stronger
Now I'm aware when a man falls rebound, my fault

I search every corner
just nowhere to hide how I feel
Ignorance sacrifice
Some days it's harder
Let's face it, it's all about me
Deeply into your own

Deep within me
Life's crawling and wasting my days
Another night gone and I know there
Will be another way
I'm leading myself to be free
In this eternal goodbye (goodbye)

Here I wanna be
Here I wanna be
(No more lies)
Here I wanna be
Here I wanna be
(No more lies)
Here I wanna be
Here I wanna be

Deep within me
Life's crawling and wasting my days
Another night gone and I know there
Will be another way
I'm leading myself to be free
In this eternal goodbye (goodbye)

Deep within me
Life's crawling and wasting my days
Another night gone and I know there
Will be another way
I'm leading myself to be free
In this eternal goodbye
