1. Kingdom Come (2:42)
[Verse 1]
We're all messed up so we just pretend
The world won't stop spinning past the end
The one we've got is not what we're used to

[Pre-Chorus]
I can't pretend that it doesn't plague me
I can't pretend that it hasn't changed me
I can't pretend that I'm not afraid of the end (I can't pretend)
I wonder
Is God getting lonely (Getting lonely)

[Chorus]
We fall down
We fall down
Like ashes, 'til we hit the ground

[Verse 2]
If we're alright and nothing's wrong
If no one's left to carry on
What's the point of finding the truth?

[Pre-Chorus]
I can't pretend that it doesn't plague me
I can't pretend that it hasn't changed me
I can't pretend that I'm not afraid of the end
I can't pretend that I'm not afraid of the end
God's getting lonely (Getting lonely)

[Chorus]
We fall down
We fall down
Like ashes, 'til we hit the ground ('Til we hit the ground)
We all fall down (All fall down)

[Bridge]
Now, piece by piece
It's making sense to me
What all the static means
Bracing for a sudden ending

[Chorus]
We fall down
We fall down
Like ashes, till we hit the ground
We all fall down
We all fall down
2. Monster (3:27)
[Verse 1]
Digging down, digging down, digging down in the dirt
Sweat it out, sweat it out till it doesn’t burn
In the dark, in the dark it can hear when I breathe
Now it’s closing in on me

[Pre-Chorus 1]
It’s getting louder now, it’s getting louder now
Don’t make another sound (I can feel it coming to life)
It’s getting closer now, it’s getting closer now
It’s gonna run me down (I can feel it coming to life)
I can feel it coming to life
I can feel it coming

[Chorus]
Take me to my grave, save me
(I can feel it coming to life)
Chain me to my cage, save me
(I can feel it coming to life)

[Verse 2]
Trying to feel, trying to heal, trying to kill the disease
Picking flesh, picking bone from between my teeth
No sleep, no sleep when you run with the beasts
(No sleep, no sleep)
Now they’re closing in on me

[Pre-Chorus 2]
It’s getting louder now, it’s getting louder now
Don’t make another sound (I can feel it coming to life)
It’s getting closer now, it’s getting closer now
Don’t let it take me out (I can feel it coming to life)

[Chorus]
Take me to my grave, save me
I can feel it coming to life
Chain me to my cage, save me
I can feel it coming to life
I can feel it coming to life
I can feel it coming to life

[Bridge]
It’s killing me, killing me, killing me, killing me, killing me
It’s killing me slow, killing me slow
It’s killing me, killing me, killing me, killing me, killing me
It’s killing me slow, killing me slow
It’s killing me, killing me, killing me, killing me, killing me
It’s killing me slow, killing me slow

[Outro]
Take me to my grave, save me
I can feel it coming to life
Chain me to my cage, save me
I can feel it coming to life
(From the inside out)
I can feel it coming to life
(From the inside out)
I can feel it coming to life
I can feel it coming to life
Yeah, I can feel it coming to life
3. Sick (3:35)
[Verse 1]
I'll give you misery, 'cause you know what it feels like
I'll give you happiness, 'cause you want it all to yourself
I'll give you all of me, it'll take just a moment
And of our everything, but all you get is what you see

[Pre-Chorus]
You turned my insides out
You turned my insides out

[Chorus]
Yeah, you make me sick, so that you can heal
And I make myself known so that you can feel
My reflection must be somebody else
'Cause I don't recognize myself

[Verse 2]
I'll take your loneliness, 'cause I know what it feels like
All your uncertainty, I'll make into mine
I'll take your punishment, 'cause I think I deserve it
All your never-ending condescending arguments

[Bridge]
Lay me out on your table
Let's get straight to the heart of this

[Pre-Chorus]
You turned my insides out
You turned my insides out

[Chorus]
Yeah, you make me sick, so that you can heal
And I make myself known so that you can feel
My reflection must be somebody else
'Cause I don't recognize myself

[Pre-Chorus]
You turned my insides out
You turned my insides out

[Chorus]
Yeah, you make me sick, so that you can heal
And I make myself known so that you can feel
My reflection must be somebody else
'Cause I don't recognize myself
No, I don't recognize myself
No, I don't recognize myself
4. Overthinking (2:53)
[Verse 1]
I could have just held my tongue
I should have just filled my lungs
Breathe in, breathe out and repeat
But you know me well, or at least in as far as I can tell
You should have known better than telling me I should have
Held it together for us, when I’m barely together myself
I’m barely together myself

[Chorus]
I’m overthinking, everything I say and I do
Just reminds me I don’t need you
'Cause there’s nothing left for me to hang on to

[Verse 2]
Well, if you had kept your word
And listened instead of just heard
Instead of just waiting for your turn to speak
Then you’d know I was weak, but you don’t
No wonder reality hurts
No wonder reality hurts

[Chorus]
I’m overthinking, everything I say and I do
Just reminds me I don’t need you
'Cause there’s nothing left for me to hang on to
I’m overthinking and I’m done with feeling empty
And pretending like you get me
I’m overthinking, but I think I’m through

[Bridge]
I’m beating myself black and blue
I’m beating myself black and blue
I’m beating myself black and blue
(I’m beating myself black and blue)

[Chorus]
I’m overthinking, everything I say and I do
Just reminds me I don’t need you
'Cause there’s nothing left for me to hang on to
I’m overthinking and I’m done with feeling empty
And pretending like you get me, I’m overthinking
If I’m through, then I’m beating myself black and blue
But it won’t make no difference to you

[Outro]
I’m beating myself black and blue
I’m beating myself black and blue
I’m beating myself black and blue
It won't make no difference to you
5. Through Glass (3:26)
[Verse 1]
I'm told that love is golden
Something to hold when the going's tough
And I've seen, what love can mean when
Someone believes in you more than you ever could

[Pre-Chorus]
I felt that same, same rhythm in the same, same rush
Got that same, same feeling from the same touch
It's like a wildfire growing 'tween my head and my heart

[Chorus]
I can only wonder why I can see in color without you
And I don't wanna try 'cause I see how the colors surround you
You light up the dark in me
You light up the dark in me

[Verse 2]
I've heard, your vision blurs
Your stomach turns and you trip over every word

[Pre-Chorus]
I felt that same, same rhythm in the same, same rush
Got that same, same feeling from the same touch
It's like a wildfire growing 'tween my head and my heart

[Chorus]
I can only wonder why I can see in color without you
And I don't wanna try 'cause I see how the colors surround you
You light up the dark in me
You light up the dark in me
You light up the dark in me

[Chorus]
I can only wonder why I can see in color without you
And I don't wanna try 'cause I see how the colors surround you
You light up the dark in me
You light up the dark in me
You light up the dark in me
6. Half-Hearted (3:09)
[Intro]
You're puttin' me together and tear me apart
You're always gonna be the other half of my heart

[Verse 1]
I've been hard on myself, but don't say you're sorry
Just say anything, I'm not ready for lonely
Tomorrow's always better than yesterday
It never comes too far away
Pain's always closer

[Chorus]
You're puttin' me together and tear me apart
You promised me forever, and back to the start
Your love leaves a mark, but never a scar
You're always gonna be the other half of my heart

[Verse 2]
I wanna know what you feel, your face already told me
But it doesn't feel real if I don't hear your voice

[Chorus]
Puttin' me together and tear me apart
You promised me forever and back to the start
Your love leaves a mark, but never a scar
You're always gonna be the other half of my heart

[Bridge]
You're everything I ever wanted (Ever wanted, wanted)
Something deep inside me's always fought it (Fought it, fought it, fought it)
So I left it six feet down and just ignore it 'til it fades

[Pre-Chorus]
You're puttin' me together and tear me apart
You're always gonna be the other half of my heart

[Chorus]
You're puttin' me together and tear me apart
(Puttin' me together and tear me apart)
You promised me forever and back to the start
(Promised me forever and back to the start)
Your love leaves a mark, but never a scar
(Your love leaves a mark, but never a scar)
You're always gonna be the other half of my heart
(Always gonna be) half of my heart

[Outro]
(You're always gonna be the other half of my heart)
Half of my heart
(You're always gonna be the other half of my heart)
Half of my heart
7. No Man’s Land (3:24)
[Verse 1]
Another man stumbles
Another one falls
When one of us crumbles
Another one just ends it all
We suffer in silence
One by one we break
We only know violence
But what a difference a calm and steady hand can make
(A steady hand can make)

[Chorus]
Now we're broken, supposed to be brave, but
The road that we've taken is washing away
Yeah, we're broken, but no one's to blame
Everything is changing but we are, we are the same

[Verse 2]
Too many mothers
Are burying sons
And too many daughters
Are being robbed of their own father's love
We're killing each other
We're killing ourselves
'Cause nobody taught us
That it ain't weakness to open up and reach for help

[Pre-Chorus]
Staring at the bottom of the bottle
Like it owes us something
We owe it to ourselves to be better
In case the world's gonna give us nothing

[Chorus]
Now we're broken, supposed to be brave, but
The road that we've taken is washing away
Yeah, we're broken, but no one's to blame
Everything is changing but we are, we are the same

[Bridge]
Staring at the bottom of the bottle
Like it owes us something
We owe it to ourselves to be better
In case the world's gonna give us nothing
Staring at the bottom of the bottle
Like it owes us something
We owe it to ourselves to be better
In case the world's gonna give us nothing

[Chorus]
Now we're broken, supposed to be brave, but
The road that we've taken is washing away
Yeah, we're broken, but no one's to blame
Everything is changing but we are, we are the same (same)
We are the same
8. Black (3:07)
[Verse]
I sit in the back of my throne
Breathing in secondhand smoke
You got me at the end of my rope
Quietly hopin' you, hopin' you choke
Biting down hard on my tongue
Till I can taste, I can taste blood
My mouth is like a loaded gun
Screaming at the top of my, top of my lungs

[Chorus]
You're killing me
I'll take you down for free
You don't deserve to breathe
But here I am, here I am, still hearing your speech
Because I've had enough
I've gotta shut you up
'Cause you've said too much

[Verse]
I sit in the back of my throne
Breathing in secondhand smoke
You got me at the end of my rope
Quietly hopin' you, hopin' you choke
Biting down hard on my tongue
Till I can taste, I can taste blood
My mouth is like a loaded gun
Screaming at the top of my, top of my lungs

[Chorus]
'Cause you're killing me
I'll take you down for free
You don't deserve to breathe, but here I am
Here I am, still hearing your speech
Because I've had enough
I've gotta shut you up
'Cause you've said too much

[Post-Chorus]
'Cause you've said too much
'Cause you've said too much

[Verse]
Biting down hard on my tongue
Till I can taste, I can taste blood
My mouth is like a loaded gun
Screaming at the top of my, top of my lungs

[Bridge]
I'll set your world on fire
You've cut the wrong damn wire
My good sense is gone, and I'm cutting you
Cutting you down from your throne
I'm breaking out
Going down and I'm not taking prisoners
I can cut you down on my own
Going down and I'm not taking prisoners
I can cut you down on my own

[Outro]
I sit in the back of my throne
Breathing in secondhand smoke
You got me at the end of my rope
Quietly hopin' you, hopin' you choke
9. Tilt (3:40)
[Intro]
What if I told you that we're all the same
If no one is equal in this endless game?
What if I told you it's out of your hands?
And after all is said and done, and nothing has changed
You'll want the same

[Verse 1]
You again, the future, has failed us, it's coming round again
The sickness, the sadness, the cycles have to win
Somehow, we're tilted and the ringing in my ears
Won't go away, it's happening again

[Chorus]
What if I told you that we're all the same
If no one is equal in this endless game?
What if I told you it's out of your hands?
And after all is said and done, and nothing has changed
You'll want the same, we all want the same

[Verse 2]
Here we go again, the feeling of falling
It's all we'll ever know
Swing backwards and forwards
It's getting old

[Pre-Chorus]
My hands are tied behind my back
And I can barely catch my breath
And here we go again

[Chorus]
What if I told you that we're all the same
If no one is equal in this endless game?
What if I told you it's out of your hands?
And after all is said and done, and nothing has changed
You all want the same

[Bridge]
And after all is said and done
We can right the wrongs and make our own
In time to start it all again
The cycle's gotta break

[Chorus]
What if I told you that we're all the same
If no one is equal in this endless game?
What if I told you it's out of your hands?
And after all is said and done, and nothing has changed
You all want the same

[Outro]
The future has failed us, it's coming round again
The pendulum is broken, so we swing it by the neck
Instead, we're tilted, the ringing in my ears
Won't go away, it's happening again
You all want the same, we all want the same
10. Bad Dream (3:11)
[Verse 1]
Wrong place, wrong time, wrong side of the tracks to be
Split lip, chipped teeth and a taste of tar and concrete
Still in a daze, head in a haze, somebody please put me back to sleep
Put me back to sleep, yeah
I'm slipping away, starting to fade, circling the drain
It was all a dream, just a bad, bad dream, yeah

[Verse 2]
Replay, rewind, remembering piece by piece
Missteps, mistakes, misplaced my dignity
I hung in the bend, got out of hand, don't understand what is wrong with me
What's wrong with me, yeah
I'm slipping away, starting to fade, circling the drain
It was all a dream, just a bad, bad dream, yeah

[Pre-Chorus]
A bad, bad dream
A bad, bad dream, yeah

[Chorus]
Still in a daze, head in a haze, somebody please put me back to sleep
Put me back to sleep, yeah
I'm slipping away, starting to fade, circling the drain
It was all a dream, just a bad, bad dream, yeah

[Bridge]
Wrong place, wrong time, wrong side of the tracks again
Replay, rewind, repeat, it was all a dream, just a bad, bad dream
It was all a dream, just a bad, bad dream

[Pre-Chorus]
A bad, bad dream
A bad, bad dream, yeah

[Chorus]
Still in a daze, head in a haze, somebody please put me back to sleep
Put me back to sleep, yeah
I'm slipping away, starting to fade, circling the drain
It was all a dream, just a bad, bad dream, yeah
Still in a daze, head in a haze, somebody please put me back to sleep
Put me back to sleep, yeah
I'm slipping away, starting to fade, circling the drain
It was all a dream, just a bad, bad dream
It was all a dream, just a bad, bad dream, yeah
