Submitted by level Zyklus
1. The Bitter Side Of Promises (5:00)
How am I supposed to rescue you
if you've forgotten how to be saved?
Well I hope you remember how to brace yourself.

Look out the waters rising
Take my hand swim with me don't you fight
I feel you slipping away
and empty shells just never were my type

So lets dim the lights
prepare to fight
get ready for the bitter side
So lets cut the lights
and start to fight
cross over to the bitter side

Hello, are you in there at all?
When I promised I'd always be there
I should have asked the same of you.

Look out the fires dying (fires dying)
hold my hand run with me don't you fight
I see you burning away (burning away)
and glowing embers never were my type

So lets dim the lights
prepare to fight
get ready for the bitter side
So lets cut the lights
and start to fight
cross over to the bitter side

Hello, are you in there at all?
When I promised I'd always be there
I should have asked the same of you

How am I
Supposed
To rescue you
If you've forgotten
how to be saved
Well I
I hope
Oh I hope you
remember how
to brace yourself

Hello
Are you in there?
Hello
Cause I promised I'd always (be there)

Hello, are you in there at all?
When I promised I'd always be there
I should have asked the same of you
2. Ruthless (4:19)
Our actions are easilly justified
we know we can so - we're gonna try
one day we'll break out when we decide
the time is right, we'll light the fire
and they'll never see us coming

Cause we can be ruthless
we can be flawless
we can do anything
the world is in our hands
so lets use it while we can
we can

Some say our dreams aren't worth our time
but we know they are so - lets start tonight
(we decide, the time is right, to light the fire.)
and they'll never see us coming

Cause we can be ruthless
we can be flawless
we can do anything
the world is in our hands
so lets use it while we can
we can
3. Your Own Mistake (3:56)
Waiting always seems such a hard time
You're never patient while your questions burn
you say, it feels like Im hiding something
but that sparkle in my eye is none of your concern
you dont need me to tell you
that you might regret this
cause you'll find that out your own way

someone once said
they could give me all the answers right there and then
but how would I ever learn if they did?

Someday, Something
will teach you all you need to know
so I'll let you make your own mistakes
you'll thank me for it one day

And it may seem a long time away
you've gotta learn to wait your turn
just as I need to learn to ignore
your all knowing smile, its none of my concern
cause who am I to tell you
when you're better off working life out
the hard way

as someone once said
they could give me all the answers
but wheres the fun in that?
and how would I ever learn if they did?

Someday, Something
will teach you all you need to know
so I'll let you make your own mistakes
you'll thank me for it one day

Waiting always seems such a long time
you've got to learn to wait your turn
you say it feels like Im hiding something
but that is none of your concern

Someday, Something
will teach you all you need to know
so I'll let you make your own mistakes
you'll thank me for it one day
4. Enough (4:16)
I try to take, more than I ever thought I could
wondering how my heart will carry me
No time to say, oh, I've never felt this lonely before
and you've never been so angry

So there I was
there I was

And there I was thinking I've outdone myself this time
you raise me up just to drop me when you're done with me
Im done with this, I've had enough this time.

So I've gone and made, my mind up I'm gonna run
Now I'm wondering where my heart will carry me
I've suffered and paid my dues I've never felt this empty before
And its never been so plain to see

So there I was
there I was

And there I was thinking I've outdone myself this time
you raise me up just to drop me when you're done with me
Im done with this, I've had enough this time.

And there I was thinking I've outdone myself this time
you raise me up just to drop me when you're done with me
Im done with this, I've had enough this time.

Had enough this time
So there I was.
5. Out Into The World (5:34)
Forced smiles and glassed eyes
a face she barely recognised
walk the line time for the lies
"why can no-one ever see" she screamed
"Destiny's killing me"
But someone whispered that she's got to let go.

Just look at your little girl
she seems so ready, ready to go
Just look at your little girl
she's ready to go, out into the world.
Out into the world.

Love lines and blood ties
Fate was not hers to decide
Join the line time for the ride
She tries to think it through again
the best way to explain
but something tells her that she's got to let go

Just look at your little girl
she seems so ready, ready to go
Just look at your little girl
she's ready to go, out into the world.
Out into the world.

Is this my calling?
Please someone tell me
am I the only one to see's this is the only way?
I hear my calling
Faith just destroys me
So open up that door please
or I swear I'll break it down again

I swear I'll break it down again...

Just look at your little girl
she seems so ready, ready to go
Just look at your little girl
she's ready to go, out into the world.
Out into the world.
6. Pass The Escape Ropes (3:48)
When I saw this place
It was exactly how
I pictured it would be
not quite perfect but
just as good as I
needed it for me

Just the same as it was
but with enough wrong that I
could fix the things, that never broke
just to pass the time

Who am I lying to? Im only lying to myself
I can't face - another second in this place
Im accepting I need something else.

Things that never were
suddenly became
all that I could see
not quite crystal clear
always clouded by
reality.

Just the same as it was
but with enough wrong that I
could fix the things, that never broke
just to pass the time

Things never change
no-one comes
nothing's over til its done
oppertunities fade
until you make them stay

Who am I lying to? Im only lying to myself
I can't face - another second in this place
Im accepting I need something else.

Im lying to myself

When I saw this place
It was exactly how
I pictured it would be
not quite perfect but good enough for me

Who am I lying to? Im only lying to myself
I can't face - another second in this place
Im accepting I need something else.
7. Interlude (1:10)
8. Walls (5:07)
A lifetime waiting for something more
can't understand but cant ignore
the time you spend surrounded by
yourself and no-one else I
see straight through - your lifes a lie
you're smothering yourself in time
no more mistakes no comprimise
it's all or nothing you decide

these walls that you build up around yourself
are going to come crashing down - to the ground

Its not to late you've heard the alarms you can escape
theres still some time to accept that I'm right and save your life
Its not the end so forget what has already happened because

historys over the past is dead
so stick with me and we'll race ahead

a lifetime wasted and nothing gained
can't understand, you can't explain
the way you spend your whole damn life
planning for something that never arrives
these walls you call a home
they leave you broken, so alone
today is the day and the time is now
open your eyes I'll show you how

these walls that you build up around yourself
are going to come crashing down - to the ground

Its not to late you've heard the alarms you can escape
theres still some time to accept that I'm right and save your life
Its not the end so forget what has already happened because

historys over the past is dead
so stick with me and we'll race ahead
9. Sick & Tired (4:33)
I love the way you work
I love the way you live for something
I love the way you cross the line in the name of..
You value the strangest things
and make them feel like home
your welcoming mind means you'll never be alone

You chain yourself to worthy causes
and mark your skin with your life laws

But dont you ever
get sick and tired
of standing your ground?
sick and tired
of being shut down?
sick and tired of
never having anyone - real around
Sick and tired of standing your ground.

I love the way you see
I love the way you live for life
I love the way you'll do anything in the name of...
You cry at the strangest things
and make them seem your own
your welcoming mind means you'll never be alone

You preach your words to empty faces
mark their blank minds with your trace
10. The Last In Line (3:46)
Its hard to look your best
when you're tying loose ends round your neck
you should know you've put yourself last one too many times
its not enough to just try
little pieces of you die
as you sit alone writing everyone elses lines

you know Im right
but it hurts to admit it
it hurts to accept that its time
long overdue

And you cant blame yourself
its your turn to be selfish - selfish as hell
Don't ever blame it on yourself
you can blame it on, everybody, everybody else

Its wrong to skip your turn
to watch everyone else live and learn
you should know you've held yourself back one too many times
and its not enough to aim high
you've got to play to win the prize
and dont waste your time writing anyone elses lines

you know Im right
but it hurts to admit it
it hurts to accept that its time
long overdue

And you cant blame yourself
its your turn to be selfish - selfish as hell
Don't ever blame it on yourself
you can blame it on, everybody, everybody else
11. Drag You Higher (3:36)
Say a prayer for me
cause I won't be there
when you look for somebody to take you higher
Send a wish to me
when I am elsewhere and you're
needing somebody to drag you higher

Cause I won't be the one to hand you blessings
and chances are I won't remember you're name
I won't be the one, the one, the one
Im not the same
I won't be the one, the one, the one
Im not the same

Say a prayer for me
cause I won't be there
when you look for somebody to take you higher
Send a wish to me
when I am elsewhere and you're
needing somebody to drag you higher

Cause I won't be the one to hand you blessings
and chances are I won't remember you're name
I won't be the one, the one, the one
Im not the same
I won't be the one, the one, the one
Im not the same

Cause I won't be the one to hand you blessings
and chances are I won't remember you're name
I won't be the one, the one, the one
Im not the same
I won't be the one, the one, the one
Im not the same
12. A Quiet Place (3:21)
A quiet place
You can shake the world but still I will remain
I remain

A quiet place without a sound
You can't push me when I'm already down
Can't bury someone already underground

A silent night
In vibrant shades of blue and white
These walls are locked around me tight
I feel I have already captured this fight
This is my time to shine

A quiet place where i'll be queen the only face
Where love becomes its own embrace
Destroy the world it's been replaced
By a quiet place

A perfect night
Surrounded by a veil of light
Nothing to see no-one in sight
Together we've won this fight
This is our time to shine

A quiet place that always understands my state
It doesn't give only to take
Like every other kind of faith

A quiet place
With time to think about the things
That never matter
To anyone - to anyone but me.
