Get What You Give Lyrics

1. This Is What I Know About Sacrifice (1:29)
This is what I know about sacrifice:
Meet me at the crossroads. Let's go.

This life is constant sacrifice.
I laid myself out for the world to see.
This time I'm going to get it right.
My past should be more than just a memory.

I said that I would give anything to live my life out and follow my dreams.
I didn't know what I would be facing.
That it would take this and everything from me.

In a world that won't stop.
On top of all that I've lost.
I'll give this and all that I've got.
So take your best shot.

Now listen up, I'm here to set the story straight.
So meet me at the crossroads. Let's go.
2. Outlive (2:36)
We’re so disconnected but not misdirected.
They think that we are nothing, but I believe in something more.

You watch the clock wind down and let the days go by.
You justify the time you’ve spent, but all you do is make the rent.
We’ll be buried with our memories, you’ll just be dead.
I’ll live forever, you’ll just die in vain.

No home, no bed. Nowhere to hang my head.
At the end of the day I hear no words they say.
No home, no bed. Nowhere to hang my head.
I don’t care what they say; I made a choice for me.

We’re so disconnected but not misdirected.
So quick in passing judgment like I don’t belong.
We’ll be buried with our memories, you’ll just be dead.
I’ll live forever, you’ll just die in vain.

No home, no bed. Nowhere to hang my head.
At the end of the day I hear no words they say.
No home, no bed. Nowhere to hang my head.
I don’t care what they say; I made the choice for me.

But this time, I stand for this.
There’s no space between the lines.
I stand for this.
No compromise this time.
I stand for this.
3. Engine 45 (4:12)
Grab ahold of me, I've got my arms up.
Pull me out from this darkness.
It's so hard for me to see so light up the end of that tunnel.

If it's a war you came to see you will never see a waved white flag in front me.
I cant end up dead, I wont be misled.
I'll keep singing this song inside my head.

A phoenix rise? Or your demise?
Do I have to put your name on this grave? Or give you one more shot?
This addiction came like a freight train.
You're coming off of the rails again.
It's hard for you to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

If it's a war you came to see you will never see a waved white flag in front me.
I can't end up dead, I wont be misled.
I'll keep singing this song inside my head.

On a one way course set for destruction, full speed ahead.
The time has come for you to start things over.
So hold on, full speed ahead.

All my life I've been waiting for something,
That never came. It never came.
But I'm still saying...

All my life I've been searching for something,
To break these chains. To break these chains.
But I'll keep swinging...
4. Slipping Away (3:13)
We look up to the sky, I swear it never ends.
Walk down the road on any path we choose.
But then something changed, now days just aren’t the same.
I’m feeling so empty like part of me has been removed.

My youth is getting older. It got left out in the bitter cold.
Now I put it on the back burner where it doesn’t belong.
Where did I go wrong?

Let me stop to ask the question, “Will I ever get the chance to repeat?”
I feel this more and more everyday. Take me back to when I used to believe.

Nothing could prepare you, but we try our best.
Failure upon failure, what happens next?
Nothing’s ever easy and life still goes on.
Don’t stop push on before you become withdrawn. I’ve become withdrawn.

My youth is getting older. It got left out in the bitter cold.
Now I put it on the back burner where it doesn’t belong.
Where did I go wrong?

My innocence is gone. Where did I go wrong?
I feel it slipping away from me. Do you remember when we were free?

I’ve stood up on that ledge, and I know what you see:
You’re looking over the edge and wanting to leap.
I’ve written every word and expressed all my concerns.
You’re losing that part of yourself, but it wasn’t meant to be.

My youth is getting older. It got left out in the bitter cold.
Now I put it on the back burner where it doesn’t belong.
Where did I go wrong? My innocence is gone.
5. The Great Unknown (3:11)
Sometimes we get so low
Downsides are all we see
Your world is swallowed whole
And now you're all alone waiting for me
I put my faith in the ones
I trust to stick it out
Who never tuck their tail and run
That's what friendship's all about

I'm sick of waiting for my life to come to me
So I singing “I'm not waiting”
You want to know how this all has come to be?
Because I lean on the ones beside me
Go and do what makes you happy
That's what I'm saying
I'm done waiting for my life to come to me
So I'm headed into the great unknown
And I'm not going alone

Cast aside left to fend for yourself your back is to the sun
Repeat your words over again “I don't need anyone”
In a world that wants nothing more than to break me down
I can take on anything with my true friends around
You could never hold me down

I'm sick of waiting for my life to come to me
So I'm singing “I'm not waiting”
You want to know how this all has come to be?
Because I lean on the ones beside me
Go and do what makes you happy
That's what I'm saying
I'm done waiting for my life to come to me
So I'm headed into the great unknown

I put my faith in the tried and true
It’s just you and me with nothing to lose
Keep those you trust right by your side
Only the strong will survive

I put my faith in the tried and true
It’s just you and me with nothing to lose
I have the strong ones by my side
It's what's keeping me alive
6. Dark Horse (3:21)
True dedication most just do not posses
When push becomes shove, can you rise above the rest?
Waves of words, they fall short and crash at my feet
Such are the ways of the weak

"I'm not scared!" It's all that I know
Done nothing but travel without knowing where to go
I've been digging up bones
Remnants of what made up me that I've never shown

This is my time to rise.

Dark horse. I'll fight my way to the top.
You will never be the thorn in my side
Dark horse. Dreams are my driving force
Open your eyes. Go live your own life.

"I'm not scared!" It's all that I know
Done nothing but travel without knowing where to go
I've been digging up bones
Remnants of what made up me that I've never shown

When the smoke clears, and the damage is done.
I'll be the only one left standing
I see someone without a shred of hope
At their breaking point. At the end of the rope.

"I'm not scared!" It's all that I know
Done nothing but travel without knowing where to go
I've been digging up bones
Remnants of what made up me that I'll never show.
7. White Light (4:50)
You left some hope instilled in me
That I never should give up on anything
I know this made you proud of me
So this song remains for those who hurt like me

The man in black. He rides alone to a final destination unknown.
The man in black He rides alone: he's moving on.
Not coming home.

I used to be the fearless one.
Living each day like death would never come
Now I feel his cold breath on my neck
He's watching my steps and telling me that I could be next.

Before I used to take these wings and I'd fly so high
(I'd fly so high. I tried...)
Now I live n regret never coming down to say goodbye
Oh why can't I?

The man in black. He rides alone to a final destination unknown.
The man in black. He rides alone: he's moving on.
I can't follow.

I used to be the fearless one.
Living each day like death would never come
Now I feel his cold breath on my neck
He's watching my steps and telling me that I could be next.

So make way for the man in black
So make way. He's never coming back.

I am so lost at sea
Ryan, shine the light for me
I'm sinking, I can't swim
I need you here to pull me in
I am so lost at sea
Ryan, shine your light for me
I'm sinking, I can't swim
I miss you brother.
You will never dim.
8. Thirty Three (3:07)
I was lead to believe, but now I know for sure.
When the wind's knocked out of me.
Only one thing that can be cure and bring me to my feet.
When all the words just relate.
I just hit play, and when the record comes to an end.
I'll listen all over again.

Truth is, I'm taking a step back and taking some time to think.
I've just got to express myself with this pen and ink.
Because I've got something left to say.
This means all the world to me. These words never let me down.

This all made me who I am. This is how I became a man.
So when breath escapes and my eyes close.
Just hit play and when the record comes to an end.
I'll sing all over again.

Truth is, I'm taking a step back and taking some time to think.
I've just got an express myself with this pen and ink.
Because I've got something left to say.
This means all the world to me. These words never let me down.

This is my everything. Come do your worst, this is my obsession.
I chose this life, and I've found m own direction.

Truth is, I'm taking a step back and taking some time to think.
I've just got an express myself with this pen and ink.
Because I've got something left to say.
This means all the world to me. These words never let me down.

When this record comes to an end, I'll just start it all over again.
9. Face Value (3:51)
This will not be the new revival or a claim to fame.
Far away from the slings and arrows is where you go to pass your blame.
It's the ones with no courage that can't face the day.
A captain with no ship is just a castaway.

I sent my heart out to sea. I sent out my everything.

A crown atop your head does not make you a king.
A crowd that follows does not mean you can lead.
Take this for what it is. We all know who's to blame.
You're not going to find your place.
You're just a face with no name.

The weak prey on the weak, and I'll be the first to say.
That I don't have all of the answers.
Sometimes I run away.
But I set out on this course, continue with no remorse.
I know who I am, and it's enough for me.

I sent my heart out to sea. I sent out my everything.

A crown atop your head does not make you a king.
A crowd that follows does not mean you can lead.
Take this for what it is. We all know who's to blame.
You're not going to find your place.
You're just a face with no name.

[Andrew Neufeld:]
I sent my heart straight out sea. Will it make its way back to me?

I've been so lost because all I've found is hatred and corruption.
Can my heart weather this storm?
And through the cold stay warm? I said!
If it makes its way back to me. I can survive anything.

[Spoken words:]
Erin I'm out here big rigging you got the hammer, down out here on the highway dood.
Just wanted to call see whats going on with that record, I don't know who in the hell can just whip out an album in fricken two months or whatever since the last time I've seen you, you wont get nothing done common.
Anyway dood, what the fff
Hey there's this guy, there's this truck on the highway carrying these tires... Just lopsided.
Oh shhh... Oh one just fell off... watch out... I'm going to...
10. Deceiver (3:07)
You are the deceiver.
No excuse for the years you've spent cold.
Spreading words like fire to build an arm,
Just to watch them burn.
You want to watch them burn.
You can't trust this.

All these false prophets stand before me
Spitting venom just to make you all believe
So full of hate and negativity
It's not the answer. It won't set you free.

You are the deceiver.
No excuse for the years you've spent cold.
Spreading words like fire to build an arm,
Just to watch them burn.
You want to watch them burn.
You can't trust this.

Suffocated by the air that you need
Never leaving the cold
Sacrificing everything you could be
Because it's what you've been told
When you look in the mirror what do you see?
Tell me what do you see. What do you see?
Is it everything that you wanted to be?

I'll reclaim everyone you betrayed
Because the tides will change when you've been sent to your grave

Overturn the throne. You chose a side doomed for failure.
Overturn the throne. I'm here to turn the tides of war.

You're running with the wolves
Inflicting fatal wounds
You're just a naysayer, that will never be me.
11. Test the Limits 4:1
I could tell you what you want to hear to hold you off another year.
But I hope the truth finds you well.
A common praise. A passing phase.
Moving forward? Not today!
The limit's in the sky, but will you be reaching it tonight?

Tonight you got to test the limits and tell yourself that.
"I'm alive!" Just make that choice and draw that line tonight.
Tonight you got to test the limits and tell yourself that,
"I'm alive, and I'm not going anywhere!"

No chance to be free. No chance to soar in the sky.
Your feet fixed to the ground.
Desperation is what's weighing you down.
Whether my strength be heaven sent or my own self-confidence.
These days when I'm walking through a crowd.
I don't have to hold my head down.

No more wasting time. Burn bright like a star, ignite.
The limit's in the sky but will you be reaching it tonight?

Tonight you got to test the limits and tell yourself that.
"I'm alive!" Just make that choice and draw that line tonight.
Tonight you got to test the limits and tell yourself that,
"I'm alive, and I'm not going anywhere!"

"Be a leader and never ever follow"
That's what my father, that's what he always told me.
So with those words boldly spoken, he sent me down a long and hard road.

Shrug it off my shoulders, it was never meant for me.
I won't waste my time in mediocrity.

Tonight I'm alive.
