Sleepwalking Lyrics

1. North Atlantic vs. North Carolina (3:42)
Oh why do you try and pull me under?
Trust me I am already dead
I've been digging my own grave for far too long now,
And I don't mind waking up without in my bed.

Oh when the sun comes up you will realize that you were wrong,
And when your lungs collapse every breath that you take will feel like your last.

I want to see the fire ignite, suffocating the sky;
Don't ever say that you know just what this feels like,
I swear one day I'll kill this lie.

Curiosity has taken its toll once again,
And taken over, taken over everything we had.

Oh it's a shame,
You just walked away,
Take everything, I don't want the memories to stay.
Say you didn't see it coming,
But I can see it from a mile away.
Look in between the lines and read the story written on your face.

Oh when the sun comes up you will realize that you were wrong,
And when your lungs collapse every breath that you take will feel like your last.

I want to see the fire ignite, suffocating the sky;
Don't ever say that you know just what this feels like,
I swear one day I'll kill this lie.

Letting go is easier when you have nothing left to lose,
So I'm letting go, I'm letting go, I'm letting go of you.

Oh please, look in me in the eye, next time you stab me in the back.
Oh please, look in me in the eye, next time you stab me in the back.

Oh please, look in me in the eye,
(You know to come and get all of your clothes out of my house.)
Next time you stab, you stab me, you stab me in the back.
(So go tell all your friends why chose to stick around.)
2. A Giant In a Giant's World (3:13)
Behold this is my vision no less real for being unseen
Like a giant in a giant's world the I am proud of nothing
We try to be better from the outside in
But still we have no place to call home In the end

A wise man speaks when he has something to say
But fools just have to say something
A wise man speaks when he has something to say
Just keep your mouth shut just keep your mouth shut

Ignorance Ignorance
It is the root and the stem of all that you know
This life that we live is not all there is
This life that we live this life that we live

We try to be better from the outside in
But still we no place to call home In the end
We try to be better we try to be better
We there is know price go

Two roads diverged in the woods I
I took the one less traveled by
This has made all the difference difference
Two roads diverged in the woods and I
I took the one less traveled by
This has made all the difference difference

If they only knew where we've been we've been
When and where going to
No If they only knew where we've been we've been we've been
When and where we your going to
It is the end

Only the dead have seen the end of anything
Prepare me for the end prepare me for the end
3. You're Lucky It's Not 1692 (3:39)
I've got some things to say.
I believe this announcement is over due.
My days blended together seamlessly and who knew?

The error of my ways in this world becomes so severe.
The day she interrupted my life it all fell,
but she was so sincere.

I've known some witches this town will still not burn.
Their never held on trial and we'll never learn.
They invade our hearts to bleed us inside out.
Somebody give me the liquids to turn this around.

I know she loves how every eye looks at her.
And she feeds on the pain you feel.
I'm telling you her words are never cut and dry.
And she keeps appearing at all the wrong times,
with a brand new lie.

Still don't believe me?
She carries a box of matches in the side of her purse!
She starts a fire just to watch you burn.
I've been trying hard to avoid it,
I thought is would make it but I was wrong!

I've known some witches this town will still not burn.
Their never held on trial and we'll never learn.
They invade our hearts to bleed us inside out.
Somebody give me the liquids to turn this around.

Deep in the sunset the smoke billows high.
She lit the fire that ruined my life.
She started the fire that ruined my life!

Time after time you left me empty.
You'll be forgotten in the ending.
It's not just a game when you're winning.

She started a fire!
She started a fire!
She started a fire!
She started a fire!

Stay back.
She'll eat you alive or burn the heart that you have left.
Stay back. You've got to stay back.
She's the wicked witch of the west,
and the hungry wolf in the woods.

Stay back. Step away from the girl.
If you value you're sanity, leave town!
4. Ghost In the Mirror (3:53)
I am the air on your lungs
and the blood in your veins.
I am all the voices you hear,
and i will never go away.

The deafening sound you hear
is coming straight from your mouth.
Choke on your words your so shallow.
Bite your lip!
Bite your lip when you hear it.
hold your tongue.
You gotta hold your tongue.

Don't be so blind.
Time is not on our side.
Look me straight in the eyes.
Do not say you will be alright.

Put it all on the line
and for a minute the earth will stand still.

I am the ghost,
the ghost in the mirror that re creates,
painting your soul with every color you hate.

I am the voices that you hear
and the decisions you make.
I am the air that you breath
and I will never go away.

I will not carry you through.
Is that what scares you the most?

My friend, you fooled yourself again,
into thinking it's real.
They can not save you like I can.
They can not make you feel.

Swimming in regret
but the water is much too deep.
This is your very last breath,
Chose your words carefully.

I am the ghost,
the ghost in the mirror that re creates,
painting your soul with every color you hate.

I am the voices that you hear
and the decisions you make.
I am the air that you breath
and I will never go away.

Save yourself from the lies that brought my father to his knees!

OH!
Don't be so blind!
Time is not on our side!
Look at me straight in the eye!
Put it all!
Put it all on the line!
5. Been There, Done That (3:28)
We are all guilty
But silence will not save our souls
We are becoming tired and weary and our conscience is slowly growing old
Living by the reason of science
Never question what we are told
These words rise above my voice but I think you already know

Now let's get one thing straight I've been there
I've done that and I refuse to go back
Nothing you can do will change my mind
All trust me I've been there I've done that
And I refuse to go back
Nothing you can do will change my mind

Were all searching for something so much greater than what we have
And these lies have nothing to offer us
A bigger meaning a better purpose please trust me this is worth it
You don't have to be the person you were yesterday

Take your seats

Now please let me break the silence and say
What you've been waiting to hear
I have the answer I have the cure

I have the answer I have the answer I have the cure
I have the answer I have the cure
I have the answer I have the cure

I'll say it again and again
I have the cure
Everything is overly organized
But you seem strangely out of place
When will you realize the past can not be erased (when will you realize)

Were all searching for something so much greater than what we have
And these lies have nothing to offer us
A bigger meaning a better purpose please trust me this is worth it
You don't have to be the person you were yesterday

I refuse to wash my hands of this
And forget what needs to be said
If life is all we are living for then kill me now
If life is all we are living for then kill me now
6. Quantity Is Their Quality (3:28)
I do not know the American Gentlemen.
God forgive me for putting such words together.
Undone you're no different than all the rest,
a life full of greed with no heart in your chest.

Full to your throats you cry out STARVATION!
Oh what a joke and waste of creation.
You are the only one to blame for all the choices you made.

I'll lower your body down into an open grave
and let the vultures have their way with you.
We'll take you by surprise and spill your blood like wine.
Scarlet stains upon the flesh will end the night.

Rest your head and soon you will find,
beauty is young and will die in time.

When I look out my window,
I see a nation filled with disgrace,
all the thieves and the liars,
and you're there with a smirk on you're face.

Everything you say rings hallow,
but you will tell your stories again and again.
Sell your half truths with a smile.
Take and inject it, inject it!

You think we don't know a thing.
But I can see straight through you.
You think that we believe everything that you say.
My God, things aren't looking good.

Now the tables have turned,
and you see this, you see this
for what it really is.
Now the tables have turned,
and you see this, you see this

It all seems so out of place.
We think that we're safe right here
and let you mismanage it all.
For once now i see it so clear.
Don't even try to run because
you will find that we are not blind
and we're not amused.
So that this is just the way that it goes
but everyone knows.
(Looks like you got it all figured out,
Brave from a distance for everyone to marvel
and applaud at the sound.
These lines were drawn for your days on end,
so get out of focus and blend in.
Failure is what you've become.
You're a failure, Failure!)

Rest your head and soon you will find
Beauty is young and will die in time
Rest your head and soon you will find
Beauty is young and will die in time

Rest your head
7. Sleepwalking (3:46)
The city hides the secrets of the liars in the streets
The phone calls and assurances all for nothing (but looking good)
Every time the truth comes out its pushed away and pushed aside
But I won't stand and watch it all
It all go unsaid

How many times will I fall victim to this It's normal by now
No one helps each other up we push one another back down
It's sad to see these people
And the apathy they have
I hope one day they lose it all for the choices they made

Out in the open there's the air of brotherhood
And spoken truth yet everyone knows what goes on behind these closed doors
Do tell no one cares about the heart no one cares about the past
I've seen the way we treat each other
So keep smiling through your teeth

Don't ever tell me you're telling the truth
Don't ever think you can speak my name
When did we stray from what we stand for
When did it all mean nothing to you

It's hard to find honest mind in this city
And I keep hoping someone will speak up
It's hard to find honest mind in this city
And I keep hoping hoping someone will speak up

I've seen how all of this ends
And I promise It's worth whoever it offends
What happened to what we believed in

And I have seen how all of this ends
Sleepwalking our way to contentment
I wont just let it be and let you smile through your teeth
You call yourself human
So say it straight to me

We're sleepwalking all the way to contentment
When will somebody speak up
We're sleepwalking all the way to contentment
When will somebody speak up speak up

Don't ever tell me you're telling the truth
And don't ever think don't ever think
And don't ever think you can speak my name
8. Destiny For the Willing (3:05)
We are alive the last men standing from the fight
We are the chosen and we claim your life tonight
Breathe in the light that surrounds us
Can you fell it take the risk but know the consequence
Know the consequence

If we were made for this
Who are we to act any differently
No one said this would be easy
Never look back leave it all behind

The clouds overhead have come and gone with the storm
Now let me show you the truth

We were born into the open sky
Where heroes are created
And legends never die
We were born into the open sky
Where heroes are created
And legends never die

If we were made for this
Who are we to act any differently
No one said this would be easy
Never look back leave it all behind

There is hope in every open eye
So live your life like you're ready to die
Let them have everything but your pride
Hold your ground when the sun sets tonight is the night

Darkest night comes just before dawn

Darkest night comes just before the dawn
And trust me son and trust me son

A darkest night comes just before the dawn
And trust me son we will make it our alive
9. The Face With No Name (3:09)
Here we go again
I brought us here on purpose
I knew we wouldn't make it out
You see it in my face
You and I were born to die in this place

All the walls you built to surround you
Crumble right before your eyes
Yet again gain it seems you have failed
This is how it all ends
We couldn't change It if we tried
Come on come on go ahead try
Go ahead and try

This is the price we pay for the moment in time (moment in time)
We searchin felt cible

Your heart beats faster your knees get weaker
And time stands still time stands still
Push it back push it back but one day this will all become very real
As a curtain of darkness covers the sky

In this place you have no face
In this place you have no name
Looking for anything that feels familiar
Trying to forget a city in ruin
Wasting time caught in a trap you set yourself
You set this trap yourself

When skyline hit fire It all went to hell
Dead bodies askew
Alarming the church bell

You can not do this on your own
Our days were numbered
You can not you can not do this on your own
Our days were

They watch in silence create and destroy
Orchestrating our every thought
They watch in silence create and destroy
We dare not say we ever tried to make it stop
10. Speak Now, I'm Listening (3:40)
Persevere persevere It's time to test the limits of your heart
Make it clear this is not
A test of the system they want you to believe
Understanding the paths that we take
Relay's signals from our nerves to our brain
Don't get lost in the upside down ways
This world has a heavy hold on your heart

You've know from day one that things aren't always cut just to fit you
Uncertain of what's at stake
This question is killing you
So many think they know it all
All they know is that It's gonna end
Gotta live while you can gotta live while you can

You'll find it hard harder now just to believe
Give it some time give it time
Give it face needed time

Crashing through the open doors
Fall flat on our faces again
This is the life that you chose you've got the time make your amends
Crashing through the open doors
Fall flat on our faces again
This is the life that you chose you've got the time make your amends

I know sometimes It's so hard
Afraid to show your weakness but were all so weak inside
So don't listen make up your own mind
Listen with your ear to the sky
And keep your feet moving persevere persevere
You have the power to make this life your own
Its time to test the limits of your heart
Make it clear make it clear
This is not a test of the system

In a world a world that is broken a world that is broken
I'm afraid of a world that is breaking a world that is breaking down

In a world that is broken and dead
I am afraid that there's nothing left
In a world that is broken and dead
I am afraid that there's nothing left

In a world that is broken and dead
I am afraid that there's nothing left
Show them how strong you are
You've come this far don't fall
