Call To Arms 02:36
I've pushed back, I've been pulled away Don’t have what it takes for me to face another day This constant battle never helps I see my reflection I don’t recognize myself I know somehow I’ll turn it all around This is a call to arms, sound the alarm to all the times I've swung and missed This is a call to arms, sound the alarm I can't keep breaking, breaking myself down like this I’m creeping closer to the edge I’ve keep losing sleep over the careless things I said I’m worn out, I’ve been wearing thin Wonder if the truth lives in the moments I’ve forgotten I know somehow I’ll turn it all around This is a call to arms, sound the alarm to all the times I've swung and missed This is a call to arms, sound the alarm I can't keep breaking, breaking myself down like this

So is it safe to say It’s gonna take each day To explain away the ricochet that life throws at you Through every break and waves And every pace we've raced We stand in place, when the storm hangs right above our head Can we hold on here and can we float Can we keep from sinking like a stone It's out of my hands, these too heavy times No matter the weather, I'll never waiver It's out of my hands, these too heavy times No matter the weather, I'll never waiver

Bomb Drop 03:06
Head full of chemicals until you've had enough Dissonance makes the accidents all become too much You swung like a pendulum and now you’re feeling numb Turned from a warning shot into a smoking gun You can't keep waiting for the bomb to drop And hope everything just stops And falls in place while dark cloud roll away You can't keep waiting for the bomb to drop And watch the ticking clock The hourglass, the shadows past away Time never waits for you, time won't ever stop Time doesn't need to know, it’s not a countdown clock You've been waiting for the end just like you always do The targets on your back they fade to black and blue Those warning signs, the war inside your mind Turns out it’s all for nothing You can't keep waiting for the bomb to drop, And hope everything just stops And falls in place while dark cloud roll away You can't keep waiting for the bomb to drop And watch the ticking clock The hourglass, the shadows past away

Welcome to my life, so set to say I'm sorry to everybody Sorry it's almost automatic, I mean well but I lose it in the static Big plans but they always go up in smoke. Too bad I didn't take a minute To make the most of everyday while I was in it So sad I'm gonna end up alone Welcome to my life, so set to say I'm sorry to everybody Sorry I take it all for granted, turn it off or I lose it in a panic Truth is its all that I’ve ever known Fact is if you blink you might've missed it I guess the moment’s gonna pass without you in it So sad you’re gunna end up alone I’ve been busy, dizzy living with this feeling now Might have been days in a haze and I’m losing count of saying sorry and I walk away Welcome to my life, so set to say I'm sorry to everybody. Hey everybody, I say I’m sorry

Good Sign 03:28
We are the pessimists, masters of what we missed The pages turn as we twist our words Between the facts and myth and poisoned patriots We fan the flames as our bridges burn We were the first to say, let’s throw it all away But now we're fighting through the doom and gloom It's never felt this way before and we took it as a good sign We’re quick to criticize, from every single side We labeled every story bored and stale Wasn’t it you and me who said we don’t believe There is a better place where nothing fails We were the first to say, let’s throw it all away But now we're fighting through the doom and gloom It's never felt this way before and we took it as a good sign You said I was out of my head Every time I pretend to forget Everything I believe and regret It's never felt this way before and we took it as a good sign

I'll try not to be so complicated tonight And let the stars align I believe in luck and my faith is blind But the weight of the world, it takes more than us to hold it up And when we hold it, what's left of us it just weighs too much I won't waste another night stuck here explaining why But this noise inside can't keep my balance right It's been a mystery, what makes me feel this crazy This one goes to my friends, who might be there when it ends, This goes out to the talks about what we loved and what we lost Tell me the truth about this cruel cruel world Cause I don't think I trust you I've tried, tried to leave all my regrets behind No ghost inside My head held up and my thoughts defined But it's the weight of the words, when we talk too much What makes the cut, do we make the cut Hold it up, what’s left of us
7.
The hand your dealt Does it mean it's all over On cruise control as life just drags us along How does it feel Now that the party's over Is it too late for us to want something more I know I’m late but it’s ok because I’m on my way You said you've had a hell of a time But do you find peace of mind when things change You told me it's been so hard to find But do you look deep inside when things change Isn't it strange That we never keep up with The breakneck pace, who we are how we were Another case Another reminder The future’s here and we want something more You said you've had a hell of a time But do you look deep inside when things change You said you’ve had a hell of a time But do you find peace of mind when things change You told me it's been so hard to find Because the only thing constant is change Things change
