1. Alive and Well (2:06)
Now's the time
To rearrange your life
Live for something
Outside of your own mind
We all dream
The same dream everynight
To burn the world that you call civilized

Alive and well
I live to be alive
I live to always strive
For something more
Alive and well
I'll never understand
The who, what, why or when
Of you tonight

We face the stares of judgement
And almost everyday
The shaking heads
Of disapproval say,
"Pray for you to give me something then find out that there was nothing left."

Alive and well
I live to be alive
I live to always strive
For something more
So Alive and well
I'll never understand
The who, what, why or when
Of you tonight

Recite the words inside
Realize that this is nothing
Without your voice
I'm not giving up
The giving up
The giving up
And I'll blame the worst on you
I know what's wrong

Alive and well
I live to be alive
I live to always strive
For something more
Alive and well
Nothing ventured, nothing gained
And i dont need to explain
Myself to you
Myself to you
2. My Life Inside Your Heart (3:04)
Fighting back the impulse
Turn my head and close my eyes,
Spending these nights awake and cold and paralyzed,
Wonder how we got this far and never realized,
The common thread that binds our lives,

And I know you hurt
But I can help you if you can
Take my hand
And we'll live inside the dreams we left behind
Take my hand
As we move from this place to a better life
Take my hand
If you take my hand

Fighting back the feeling that you always could deny
Anything but everything we know is just a lie
As I cremate this memory and watch the darkened ashes rise
And beneath the smoke, I'll stand
And ask you if you can

Take my hand
And I'll promise not to ever let it go
Take my hand
'Cause this hope is greater than you'll ever know
Take my hand
And this is all i'll ever ask of you to show

Fight back the urges
Turn my head and close my eyes
And will I wake tomorrow still alive

I'm still dreaming
I'm still waiting
I'm still sure
(I'm still sure)
You're still living in a life
That isn't yours
(That isn't yours)
And this is part of me
I hope you never see
This is my life inside your heart

Take my hand
And i'll promise not to ever let it go
Take my hand
'Cause this hope is greater than you'll ever know
Take my hand
And this is all i'll ever ask of you to show
3. Great Awakening (1:38)
Buried words
Under lights
Soundtrack to this stagnant life
This meaning lost in translation
Message sucked out of his hands again

This could be my great awakening
But how would I know
Cuz it's all noise to me
Are these words falling on deaf ears ?

Staring at the empty stares
Realize that he no longer cares about the wrong or right
The downward spiral begins tonight

And this could be my great awakening
But how would I know cuz it's all noise to me
Are these words falling on deaf ears ?

This could be my great awakening
But how would I know cuz it's all noise to me
Nothing I can do will make you hear
4. Six Ways 'Til Sunday (2:38)
The years unfold in one moment,
The voices that we heard so loud
Are now suddenly silenced
Inside this crowd.

And you're surrounded by the lives
Of those who found something to hold
So bringing everybody down
Is all you know.

You've been hiding so long
You can't find yourself
In this sheltered life you live
When everything you want is at your fingertips
You'll never know what need is

You're claiming to be something different
So wanting to believe
That you're better than the rest
To make up for your self-esteem

You talk to hear your own voice and
You've left me no choice but to choose
I miss the person that you were
But I don't miss you

You've been hiding so long
You can't find yourself
In this sheltered life you live
When everything you want is at your fingertips
You'll never know what need is

You're the new revolution
The angst-filled adolescent
You fit the stereotype well

You're the new revolution
The angst-filled adolescent

You're the new revolution
The angst-filled adolescent
You fit the stereotype well

You're the new revolution
The angst-filled adolescent
You fit the stereotype well

You're the new revolution
The angst-filled adolescent
You fit the stereotype well

You're the new revolution
The angst-filled adolescent
You fit the stereotype well

You're the new revolution
The angst-filled adolescent
You fit the stereotype well
5. 401 Kill (3:21)
As I watch your life go up in flames you'll swear up and down you'd like
To change but when the sun sinks slowly into the sky now you're right
Where you started again with nothing to say, without an argument or case
And when it's said and done and done and said and now what's another day ?

I can feel these changes right before my eyes
I see a dying fire inside your eyes
Inside your eyes

When will you stop and realize the worth and value of your life ?
As you suffocate yourself within this mindless 9-5 wake up There's more and
Your life is nobody's but yours and now its said and done and done and
Said and now what's another day ?

I can feel these changes right before my eyes
I see a dying fire inside your eyes

You're running circles around my slow pace
You've reached the finish line only to realize there was no race
I'm sick of being stepped on for the things I choose
I give and take and now I've taken all I could
6. The Art of Losing (1:49)
I'm not fucking blind to the way
That you talk around the truth
Not just what you say
But what you do
Played this tug of war way too fucking long
Like every time
Again I've lost
You've won

You took advantage of the trust that I gave
Took my forgiveness
Rubbed it back in my face
Reaching for words but there's nothing to say
I'm left to wonder
Will this ever be the same ?

This rage
Burning through my veins
Regret consumes my mind
Cutting deeply like a razor blade
Will I live to see another day
Without questioning your motives
With constant doubt

You took advantage of the trust that I gave
Took my forgiveness
Rubbed it back in my face
Reaching for words
But there's nothing to say
I'm left to wonder
Will this ever be the same ?

And as we sit back waiting
For these scars to heal
Try to convince ourselves
That this
That this isn't real
Will you allow me forget your past ?
Or will you always hang it over my head ?
7. Remains of Summer Memories (1:19)
All these days
I'll forever cherish
In the confines of my heart
The faces of ten years ago
Like fingerprints on my heart

How can I breathe
When fear chokes my every breath ?
How can I balance
Six inches from death?

Now
The momentum we've created
Comes to a screeching halt
This angel comes crashing down
On her hands and knees she crawls

How can I breathe
When fear chokes my every breath ?
How many of your lies
Will I be fed ?

The remains of summer memories
Spent so far away
Free from the fear or jealousy
That plagues our lives today
Now that promises we're broken
Enemies were made
We spend our precious time pointing fingers
Trying to place the blame

The remains, of what's left
Of our past
Of a future yet to come
Of the battles that we've lost
And the fights that we have won
8. The Unraveling (3:10)
And all these things that we tie together
Keep unraveling apart
And the light that used to burn so bright
Now is dark
With anger-laced intent we set fire
To the bridges that remain
And they're wading thru the current now

And they
Drown in the flood of the tears
That have been wept
And I scream to the sky
No, you are not alone

If you think that you're words will ever make a
Difference
Think again and carry on
Because the weight behind the hand that holds us is
Strong
But there is hope in the roar of a thousand pleading
Cries
And all these things that we tie together

The sound of their tongues being bitten
Is all I hear ?
As we fire at the whites of theirs eyes then
Dance on ashes of the world ?

As they drown in the flood of the tears
That have been wept
And their tongues being bitten
Is all that I can hear
As I scream to the sky,
I need you now

Can you feel this truth now unraveling ?
Or will you chase the burning sun ?
Into the sea.
9. Reception Fades (1:59)
You talk about, the way things were
But I can't hear what you're saying
A time when life was not this hard
Blessed by the innocence

Is the best yet, to come ?
Or did it pass by long ago ?
Are we holding on, to a thread
Of something already dead ?

I'm not your reason to stand up straight
Shoulders back chest out and eyes raised
Stepping back, I hesitate
I can't let myself be taken

Is the best yet, to come ?
Or did it pass by long ago ?
Are we holding on, to a thread
Of something already dead ?

You can't change your mind,
Expect me to care
You can't just snap your fingers and expect me to be there.
You can't change your mind,
Expect me to care
You can't just snap your fingers and expect me to be there.
Can't just change your mind

The reception fades the signals breaking up
And am I moving on or am I giving up ?
If you walk away from this with anything
Live your life today
10. Stained Glass and Marble (1:38)
Come warm your hands
On hellfire and brimstone
Empty the pockets of the,
Innocent victim

Bound by fear
We misplace trust, in your voice
Inside these walls
Convincing us we have no choice

Gaze upon these stare of naivete
Two thousand years replaced
With eighteen inches of our faith

Bound by fear
We misplace trust, in your voice
Inside these walls
Convincing us we have no choice

And this reflection,
On where the message lies
Stained glass and marble,
Or somewhere deep inside
Somewhere deep inside

This message you will only find
Deep inside
To read these words
You keep looking down
But in the sky
This message is written in the clouds
11. Everchanging (3:47)
In the face of change
Is when she turned to me and said,
"I'm not sure anymore..."

And there amidst the waves
And the cloudless skies
That blanket the year before
I watch my life wash ashore

Have you ever been a part of something
That you thought would never end ?
And then of course it did

Have you ever felt the weight inside you ?
Pulling away inside your skin ?
And then something had to give

Now the lines are drawn
Is this feeling gone ?
The best parts of this have come and gone
And now that is all this is

With the reasons clear
We'll spend another year
Without direction, full of fear
But now things will be different

There's nothing simple when it comes to you and I
Always something in this everchanging life
And it probably always will
Now that time is getting harder to come by
The same arguments are always on our mind
We've killed this slowly fading light

Now the lines are drawn
Is this feeling gone ?
The best parts of this have come and gone
And now that is all this is

With the reasons clear
We'll spend another year
Without direction, full of fear
But now things will be different

Now something has kept me here too long and you can't leave me if I'm already gone
Now something has kept me here too long and you can't leave me if I'm already gone
Now something has kept me here too long and you can't leave me if I'm already gone

Make the same mistakes we're always hanging on
Break the promises we're always leaning on
All this time spent waking up
Now I keep this line open to get this call from you as you speak the words
That keep me coming back to you now this time it's all different

Now something has kept me here too long and now I'm gone
12. Sometimes Selling Out Is Giving Up (1:12)
Trying,
To make a difference
But where the fuck did you go wrong ?
Lying,
To all the names and faces
That have been there all along,

How can you ask me to just forget ?
All the sick lines
And the words you said
How can you ask me to just forget ?

Deny,
The promises you've made
The things you said
That you hold dear
Behind,
Your empty words
You hide and wait
Until that you
Fall in the clear

How can you ask me to just forget ?
All the sick lines
And the words you said
How can you ask me to just forget ?

Just don't ask me to just forget
13. 3 Day Weekend (1:05)
A side from the name that holds us together
Now I think we'd fall apart
It's the years we'll pretend we've forgotten
That separate our hearts

And I don't remember the way this was
But the pictures prove I knew you once
And where is the source of our mistakes

I'm afraid one day we'll drift so far
We'll wake up not knowing where we are
These words accomplish nothing if I'm gone
14. 1000 Good Intentions (3:10)
It's all the same thing
Now that it ever was
Except now you've strayed too far
Need you to stop digging your hole
And follow the path we light
Don't need an invitation to be reconciled
'Cause these home fires are burning
Stare into your empty eyes and wonder
"How could something so right turn out so wrong ?"
You spent your time making excuse
For the ways of life that you are choosing
How could something so right turn out so wrong ?
Not sure exactly where I am

The more we organize
We suck out this life that serves as the fuel behind
You wanna take the passion in my veins
And put it down in black & white

You've got your foot directly on the gas
I watch you burn out so fast
Now i can see just what you've become
And how could something so right turn out so wrong ?
I don't have a backup plan
This is all that I am
And how could something so right turn out so wrong ?
Not sure exactly where I am

(One) one thousand (good) intentions
(Lost) translation (lost) forever
(One) one thousand (good) intentions
(Lost) translation (lost) forever lost

How could something so right turn out so wrong ?
I don't have a backup plan
This is all that I am
And how could something so right turn out so wrong ?
Not sure exactly
Where I am
Where I am
15. Weight of Time (2:02)
Speak with hesitation, talk with reservation
Blood on your hands, dried long since
But guilt still glowing in your eyes

You hide behind
(And now this blood has long since dried)
Your perfect crime
(Guilt still glowing in your eyes)
Never ask why you try
(Now I've Watched You)

Stack the mistakes you've made
On top of the lies
To hide them
Your excuses just don't add up
Empty handed we all wonder
Why

You hide behind
(And now this blood has long since dried)
Your perfect crime
(Guilt still glowing in your eyes)
Never ask why you try

Now I know that
Your words
Your actions
Intentions
All were lies
Your heart grows heavier with time
(And now this blood has long since dried)
Have I said enough
Have I said too much
Is it your responsibility to decide
You're heart grows heavier with time
(I will decide)
And I fell victim to the changing tide
And this blood has long since dried
This blood has long since dried
This blood has long since dried
16. Faint Resemblance (2:51)
Wait,
I'm not listening to you now
I wasn't listening to you then
I know that nothing will be the same again

There's only so much I can handle
Only so much I can take
Before my knees start to buckle
And my arms start to shake

Have we been here before ?
Will we be here again ?
I don't know how much of me you expect standing here right now
I beg for you to let go
I dread the day you finally do
I fight for your attention
Too little too late
Or too much too soon
And how will this plague the time
We share from here on out
And how long will this taint
All these words spilling from my mouth

Have we been here before ?
Will we be here again ?
I don't know how much more of me
You expect standing here right now
Standing here right now

Have we been here before ?
Will we be here again ?
I don't know how much more of me you expect
