Track Name: Wake Up
Wake up, Wake up
Your body’s going nowhere
Wake up, Wake up
We’re living in a nightmare

Shaking from sickness that’s taking its hold
Making us witness what doctors foretold
It’s breaking our hearts as it’s breaking our fold
Taking our tears it so viciously sold

I do believe
It got the best of me
Watching you leave
Just take the rest of me

I see you
Your memories fading
You’re growing old
I see you
Emotions colliding
You’re growing cold
Your heart grows cold

Wake up, Wake up
Your body’s going nowhere
Wake up, Wake up
We’re living in a nightmare

Holding back words so that they’ll never know
The anger that’s growing, the losses we sow
You bottle your thoughts as you throttle your soul
Drinking the pain and repressing the cold

I do believe
It got the best of me
Watching you leave
Just take the rest of me

I see you
Your memories fading
You’re growing old
I see you
Emotions colliding
You’re growing cold
Your heart grows cold
Track Name: Storm
Is this a game to you?
Find ways to shame and bruise
Defined by your lack of heart

Bite your tongue
Drink your bile

Everyone laughs and everyone cries
It’s comfort to know that everyone dies

It isn’t nice to tease
When your own knees are bleeding
I’m not alone
I am home
Rise in the flames
Storm in waves

Everyone laughs and everyone cries
It’s comfort to know that everyone dies
Especially you

Your smiling eyes can burn
Scars of regret you’ve earned
Silently weep
Bitterness sweet
Rise in the flames
Storm in waves

Everyone laughs and everyone cries
It’s comfort to know that everyone dies
Especially you
Track Name: Stop, Kiss Me
Dear, the nights are so lonely here
While the sun magnifies our every fear
And night, so beautiful and so clear
In my dreams I’m coming home to you

Wait for me, I’ll come back to you
I swear that I’ll come home
I swear that I’ll be there

Stop, Kiss Me
Say that you’ll miss me
Don’t cry
It’s not goodbye

Scars, in the flesh and in my head
How to sleep when all that I see is red
And friends are falling like bullet shells
Where to turn when no one is here to tell

Where do you turn when no one can hear you
Nobody here
Nobody here

Stop, Kiss Me
Say that you’ll miss me
Don’t cry
It’s not goodbye
I’ll see you
When this is through
My angel
Till then, Farewell

Love, I wish I was with you now
I have more to say than what time will allow
So please, forgive me for leaving you
All of my heart will belong to you forever

Stop, Kiss Me
Say that you’ll miss me
Don’t cry
It’s not goodbye
I’ll see you
When this is through
My angel
Till then, Fare thee well
Track Name: If I Could
If I could dream the world anew
I would build a seaside harbor
Every flower would be wet with dew
Every heart would beat with an undying fire

If I could dream the world anew
I would build for you a fortress
And you’d never want for lack of love
You would always smile, and I’d never leave your arms

You will not weep
You will not die
Not in this place within my mind
You’ll always laugh
And you will fly

If I could fly you to your dreams
And bathe you in the moonlight
I would gather stars to light your eyes
You would fill with awe
And an endless joy

You will not weep
You will not die
Not in this place within my mind
You’ll always laugh
And you will fly

And I'll never leave your arms
Track Name: Uncaged
Not a moment passes by
The memory of your mocking words
Rips through the gossamer of this fragile dream
Distorts and defiles till my heart is left to bleed

Fuel my rage till you’re nothing but ash
And I will burn evermore
I’m uncaged, I’m everything you fear
I will not forget

Go ahead and laugh some more
Talk it up like a big man
From where I am standing you’re looking mighty small
Out here in the light, I can’t see you at all

Fuel my rage till you’re nothing but ash
And I will burn evermore
I’m uncaged, I’m everything you fear
I will not forget

I hear the roaring of the sea
Sings not its symphonies for thee

Fuel my rage till you’re nothing but ash
And I will burn evermore
I’m uncaged, I’m everything you fear
I will not forget
I am uncaged
Track Name: No One Will Save You
Don’t run away, Don’t hide your face
I know your name, I’ve played this game

I’ve had enough, I’ve had enough
Not gonna belly up this time
I’ve had enough, No one will save you

No white horses, No shining knight
Take up your arms, Take back your life

I’ve had enough, I’ve had enough
Not gonna belly up this time
I’ve had enough, No one will save you

I’m sick of life, I’m stick of time ticking by
So close your eyes
I’m done with you, I’ve seen enough to know the truth
Give in to fate
I’m holding shut, I’m in a rut waiting for you
Just take one chance
Done waiting for life, gonna take it back from you
To break the chain

Your lovely lies Will bleed your veins
Live in denial, Your heart will break

I’ve had enough, I’ve had enough
Not gonna belly up this time
I’ve had enough, No one will save you

I’m sick of life, I’m stick of time ticking by
So close your eyes
I’m done with you, I’ve seen enough to know the truth
Give in to fate
I’m holding shut, I’m in a rut waiting for you
Just take one chance
Done waiting for life, gonna take it back from you
To break the chain

No One Will Save You

Don’t run away, Don’t hide your face
Track Name: I Am
I am the fire come for you
I’ll burn you to the ground
I am the death you fear to face
I’ll grip and drag you down
I’ve come to you seeking revenge
These wounds will never heal
If you cannot repent, then
I will hunt you till you feel

You are the one who wrung my neck
And buried in the mud
I am the one you laughed and raped
And washed away the blood
I am the dead come from the grave
I want your terror whole
I’ll have you rotting next to me
Through and through
Track Name: Saying Goodbye
What I fear the worst is saying goodbye
What scares me the most is staying alive

I need you in my life
Love lost I’d surely die

The world can be cruel and unkind
We barely breathe, we’re bound and tied

Freefall from the sky
Arms spread for the collide

What I fear the worst is saying goodbye
What scares me the most is staying alive
The world can be cruel and unkind
We barely breathe, we’re bound and tied

We’re bound and tied

What hurts the most is saying goodbye
An emptiness by my side
Track Name: Come To Me
He came and gave me the key to the world
He said, “don’t waste it girl”
She said to fly to the stage and soar
Just walk through the door

Since then, things haven’t been the same
A little love changes the game

Come to me, I heard your voice
Calling me, I had no choice
Here I am, my Love, I’ve come
Deliver me, my muse
Yours to use

My angels, how I’d move mountains for you
I cross the sea
Believe you’re worth everything and more
My destiny

Our story’s only just begun
We have a song that needs to be sung

Come to me, I heard your voice
Calling me, I had no choice
Here I am, my Love, I’ve come
Deliver me, my muse
Yours to use

Sweet Love, you’ve been with us all the while
We’re here in your arms
Because of you, we have eyes to see
We weather the storm

Burning across the sky
Yearning, I hear you sigh

Come to me, I heard your voice
Calling me, I had no choice
Here I am, my Love, I’ve come
Deliver me, my muse
Yours to use

Come to me, I heard your voice
Calling me, it left me with no choice
Here I am, my Love, I’ve come
Deliver me, my muse
Yours to use
Track Name: The Ghost
Counting every hour
Fear in every note
Waiting for the nightmares to cease
Close your eyes to sleep
Silently scream

Is all of it lies this time
I lose track of what is right
I’m through with the pain and tears
My burden through all these years

Demons in my brain
Ripping me again
Tearing at my heart and my head
Twisting what is there
Until I’m bled

Is all of it lies this time
I lose track of what is right
I’m through with the pain and tears
My burden through all these years

Can you try to understand
How I hate the feeling
Of standing on the edge of my sanity
I don’t want to be here
I don’t want to feel this
I just want to sleep
Sleep perchance to dream again

Am I really here
Is this what I’ve become
A shadow of the ghost in me
An echo of a dream
Memories lost at sea

Is all of it lies this time
I lose track of what is right
I’m through with the pain and tears
My burden through all these years

I’m broken to tears
Have you seen the ghost
Have you seen the ghost
The ghost lost in me
