Track Name: Setting The Tone
This is where it ends, all fear, and all doubt
This is where it ends, all fear, and all doubt
This is where it ends, all fear, and all doubt
This is where it ends, our fear ends now.
Track Name: To The People I Consider Cowards
We lost our way,
eyes loaded with all we tried to save,
when did it go wrong?
I can't live holding a clock in my hands,
but that's something about me you'll never understand.

We lost our way,
holding back the truth we tried to say,
when feelings held us down
Open, describing something broken
Patience, a path too far to reach

Who will stand against them?
Who will help me fight them?
Who will be the voice to break the soul?
Who will be the first to throw this brick?
Who will stand against them?
Who will help me fight?

Take 10 years and break me at the seams, (we still believe...)
Curse the sky and damn the air we breathe, (the power in our dreams...)
Because we believed every lie,
Every dream that we let die...took a piece of us with it.

Restless, a constant work in progress,
Shameless, is bearing all you have,
Willing to accept the fact we're dying,
A promise that you'll never be alone.

Take 10 years and break me at the seams, (we still believe...)
Curse the sky and damn the air we breathe, (the power in our dreams...)
Because we believed every lie,
Every dream that we let die...took a piece of us with it.

We won't just give up on our dreams, (we still believe...)
We'll embrace the fall and make all our beliefs real, (the power of dreams...)
And I won't stop because you can't see, the tragic things that make me "me"
Bring on the flood, bring on the flames, bring on your empty graves

It's come to this, a choice is made...we'll never be the same

Expose us for the dreamers that we are,
We've spent our whole lives just waiting for someone to prove us wrong,
Expose us for the failures that we've been,
What you call a mistake...is the best part of my life.

There are no victims here, just people who are sick of being hurt,
There are no victims here, just people who see the need for change.

It's come to this...it's come to this.
Track Name: A Shot To End This All
We both know how this ends, I'm on my knees screaming "Save me"
Free me from this hell,
I don't wanna stay here, (I'm ready to leave)
I really hate to ask this (I'm ready to go)
Just close your eyes and squeeze...do this for me.

One shot to end this all, we both know there's no going home,
One shot to end this nightmare we can't wake from,
Our love is what got us here, we fought so brave despite our fear,
Your song is what's making this oh, so hard.

We both know how this ends, I'm on my knees screaming "Save me"
Free me from this hell,
I don't wanna stay here, (I'm ready to leave)
I really hate to ask this (I'm ready to go)
Just close your eyes and squeeze...do this for me.

Say goodbye to the hero, say hello to the martyr,
You made me your scapegoat, send me straight to the slaughter,
You created a monster, eventually something had to give,
There's nothing worse, than losing your will to live.

We both know how this ends, I'm on my knees screaming "Save me"
Free me from this hell,
I don't wanna stay here, (I'm ready to leave)
I really hate to ask this (I'm ready to go)
Just close your eyes and squeeze...do this for me.

There's more to life than this,
There's more to life than feeling like you're broken,
There's more to life than this,
There's more to life than feeling like you can't get by on your own,
There's more to life than this,
There's more to life than seeking their approval,
There's more to life than this,
There's more to life than feeling like there's no way out when there is.

We both know how this ends, I'm on my knees screaming "Save me"
Free me from this hell,
I don't wanna stay here, (I'm ready to leave)
I really hate to ask this (I'm ready to go)
Just close your eyes and squeeze...

We both know how this ends, I'm on my knees screaming "Save me"
Free me from this hell,
I don't wanna stay here, (I'm ready to leave)
I really hate to ask this (I'm ready to go)
Just close your eyes and squeeze...do this for me.
...do this for me.
Track Name: Becoming The Arsonist
How could you just watch the flames consume your home?
And do nothing, all that you loved destroyed by fire, just lays in ashes now,
You just stood there.

Straight out of a dream, drenched in kerosene,
All I'll ever need is in your eyes,
Give me a smile, test my commitment,
Embrace me forever because we fit perfect.

All this for love (you don't, you don't understand)
All this for you (I tried hard to let go)
All this for love (you don't, you don't understand)
All because I don't know how to say goodbye.

Emerging from the flames, smoke still in my lungs,
No remorse at all for anything I've done,
All I ever wanted was to watch this whole place go down,
Go down in flames.

All this for love (you don't, you don't understand)
All this for you (I tried hard to let go)
All this for love (you don't, you don't understand)
All because I don't know how to love you.
All this for love
All this for love
All because I don't know how to say goodbye.

Under a reddened sky, in the darkest of places,
Both standing tall, with smiles on our faces,
All you ever wanted was to never be alone,
All I ever wanted was to watch this city burn.

All this for love (you don't, you don't understand)
All this for you (I tried hard to let go)
All this for love (you don't, you don't understand)
All because I don't know how to love you
All this for love
All this for love
All because I don't know how to say goodbye
All this for love
All because I don't know how to say goodbye.
Track Name: The Consequence Of Dreams
We can feel the strength rising to the surface
Only looking back to see how far we've come
We recall the moment
When courage refused to sit in silence
And we found a strength that we had all along

The black clouds that surround me
No longer hold the weight or strength to bind me
Because I'm standing right outside this castle
That now lays broken in her ruble
Screaming out a name
That brings me pain

We're on our own, but not alone

Death is a lie that threatens my everything
My choice is clear so I'm not afraid to scream
"I found love, I fell in love"
Look in my eyes, tell me you feel the same
My choice is clear so I welcome the pain because
"I found love,I fell in love"

One by one, we float, rising to the surface
Showing our heart, showing sacrifice
One by one, we learned from all our disappointments
And we found a strength that we had all along

I can't shake the images I get
From stand up on the cliff
Because all it took was a couple matches
And a passion fueled by hatred
To redirect the pain
To start this flame
I fell in love [repeat]

Our heart is what guides us
Our dreams keep us pressing on
We've come too far to turn back now
Track Name: Home Away From Home
Lights out over Portland,
My life changed the day she came in,
Lights out over Washington,
A beauty that I can't wait to see again,
Lights out under a dead moon,
I know it's dark the light will come soon,
Lights out and though I'm gone,
I won't say "goodbye" because that's not what this is,
I'll be back for a name that beats in my chest.

My chest is weighing me down,
And I'm so scared of leaving,
My heart knows what it wants,
Want to or not…this is my home.

Lights out from the front line,
I was brave but so scared to die,
Lights out for the last time,
We found something here that they'll never find,
Lights out to keep you safe,
Her embrace leaves me homesick,
Lights out and though I'm gone,
I won't say "goodbye" because that's not what this is,
I'll be back for a name that beats in my chest.

(My chest…is weighing me down) [repeat]
Please don't forget me,
Keep my memories,
I know where my heart is,
I'll be back I promise.
Track Name: Ode To Logan
Just take a breath
The skin breaks but just won't stay broken
Capitalizing on their mistakes
They gave you everything to take them down

They're gonna get it now
You'll send em straight to hell
For everything they put you through,
Your heart is filled with sorrow
So poisonous and so hard to swallow
They're gonna get it
now
They can't hurt you

So why are you so afraid?
Are you ready to make them pay?
The ones you trusted, set you up to burn
So why are you so afraid?
Are you ready to make them pay?
Scared of what you'll find?
Ashamed of who you were?
You're not that person anymore

You're not the person that you were

Take what they did and rip them to pieces
They'll never cross you again

Fists up, all eyes focus on one,
When these babies drop its gonna block the sun
They didn't feel then, they're gonna feel it now
Heads up, look 'em straight in the eyes
They escaped before, but not this time
They didn't feel it then, they're gonna feel it now

The skin breaks but won't stay broken
You couldn't save her but look how strong she's made you
Track Name: Constant Distance
I'm giving up on finding love,
At least until the smoke and dust clears so I
Can finally see for once true love,
Not something broken and mistreated from being alone.

I'm breaking every rule that I made,
Just to push you away.

I won't stop trying to find you,
I'll spend my whole life here searching,
But when the heart talks,
You better listen up…don't ever fall in love.

It's been so long since I've been gone,
This constant distance is what tore us apart,
I couldn't live inside your phone,
The heart grew fonder, then grew tired…its all my fault.

I won't down play this choice I've made,
And I won't deny that this is my life [repeat]

I'm breaking every rule that I've made,
Sorry to push you away.
Track Name: Kneel You Traitor
From this day forward I move on
Pushing myself far beyond all limitations
And every distraction placed by you
Because I remember what you said
And how I foolishly believed in every lie unseen
But it doesn't matter now, that me is dead

Done doubting myself (those days are over)
I'm not afraid of failing you (like I was before)
Because in the end it's in my hands,
To be the things I want so bad
My fear ends right now

(My fear ends now, that me is dead)

I'm breaking every wall I see
As well as every heart I get
It's not poetic
Nor am I sympathetic to your screams
Don't talk to me about fair
Don't try to play me like you cared
You only loved one thing
And that one thing wasn't me so I moved on
No longer afraid and no longer oppressed
Free to follow my dreams
On to glory, on to death?
Both fine by me

My fear ends now
With arms stretched out
I embrace the choice and made,
And let nothing stand in my way [x2]
Track Name: Deadliest Of Lies
Pictures armed with fake smiles,
Remind me of a time when I was lost,
Broken, and felt totally enslaved… (This is my life)
A life I hated, falling victim to routine,
I've always known that wasn't for me,
The life I wanted, so different from how we're bred,
Still these visions just won't leave my head…my head.

Don't say (don't say) that this is how,
A perfect life should be,
It's not perfect to me,
You try (you try) to justify,
The deadliest of lies so I'm bringing it down.

I'm bringing you down

Your plans are flawed [repeat]
This is my life, on my terms [repeat]

We fall victim to an unreal preset of a perfect life to live,
We try so hard to be the very person that we've always sworn to hate.

We curse the sky…we plead and begged for a brand new life,
We curse the sky…we hear their voices and we wish they would die. [repeat]

My dreams mean everything to me (we said goodbye…)
My dreams mean everything to me (to our old life…)
My dreams mean everything to me (I don't care if I'm wrong)
My dreams mean everything to me (I don't care if I'm wrong)
