01. Another Tribe

Music by dredg
Lyrics by Gavin Hayes
I've forgotten how to smile
A common relapse, a notion of change within
I didn't know I was going to be in a play
Until it was already much too late

They always say they're against the grain, c'mon, they all look the same
They just joined another tribe to help them build up some old lie
Nothing new to see here

Here we go, go again
Following all the trends
It's become an obsession
Yeah, it's time to accept it

Here we go, go again
Following all the trends
It's become an obsession
Yeah, it's time to accept it

It's raining again, creating puddles of uncertainty
It's where my passion ends and the insecurity begins
All of this combined, contaminating me
Maybe someday we will see
Maybe someday we will see

They always say they're against the grain, c'mon, they all look the same
They just joined another tribe to help them build up some old lie
Nothing new to see here

Here we go, go again
Following all the trends
It's become an obsession
Yeah, it's time to accept it

Here we go, go again
Following all the trends
It's become an obsession
Yeah, it's time to accept it

Where is, where is your honesty?
Give us something real
Wipe off your smile
No more deception
Is this real?

Here we go, go again
Following all the trends
It's become an obsession
Yeah, it's time to accept it

Here we go, go again
Following all the trends
It's become an obsession
Yeah, it's time to accept it


02. Upon Returning

Music by dredg
Lyrics by Gavin Hayes
I can understand to a certain extent
The camaraderie and mass appeal
But the feelings you hold
You got 'em under control
Make me realize how much you have grown
I can understand what you meant
That very few could even deal
With the possible delivery of stone
Make me realize you're on your own
You're on your own

I can lie, I can lie if it makes you feel better
I can lie, I can lie if it gives you pleasure
You'll be fine, you'll be fine if we do it together
But, I can lie, I can lie if it makes you feel better

Please know I'll be here when you return
I can understand to a certain extent
What you're going through and how you feel
But the stories you've told and the pictures you've shown
Make me realize you're a hero
You're a hero

I can lie, I can lie if it makes you feel better
I can lie, I can lie if it gives you pleasure
You'll be fine, you'll be fine if we do it together
But I can lie, I can lie if it makes you feel better

Please know I'll be here when you return
Please know I'll be here when you return

But upon returning
Nothing makes sense
It's more affirming than the place you just left
Everyone's living
Everyone's working
Everything's so deceiving

Sometimes
Sometimes
Sometimes
Sometimes

I can lie, I can lie if it makes you feel better
I can lie, I can lie if it gives you pleasure
You'll be fine, you'll be fine if we do it together
But I can lie, I can lie if it makes you feel better

Please know I'll be here when you return
Please know I'll be here when you return
Please know I'll be here when you return
Please know I'll be here when you return


03. The Tent

Music by dredg
Lyrics by Gavin Hayes
We need some light to find the lantern
Unzip the tent, we can use the moon
I'm going out into the weeds
To gather everything we need
So, stay in, stay in until I'm done
Until I'm done searching for the thing

Even the faintest glint of light
Can guide me right back to you
You had no choice
But to run and to go
(I'll get you)

Anything that you need
Anything at all
I'll hunt down for you
And I'll be comin' home

Through the dark
Through the dark
Gotta get back to you

You're the light out from the shore
The beacon is my guide
The trail of crumbs I don't feel
By your light
By your light
You have no choice
But to run and to go

Anything that you need
Anything at all
I'll hunt down for you
And I'll be comin' home

Through the dark
Through the dark
I've gotta get back to you

The distance we maintain is a stable foundation
A trail of crumbs is my motivation, motivation
You have no choice
But to run and to go
(I'll get you back)

Anything that you need
Anything at all
I'll hunt down for you
And I'll be comin' home


04. Somebody Is Laughing

Music by dredg
Lyrics by Gavin Hayes
Some are skeptics
And some believe
Some refuse to say

Well, if they've seen it
They'll believe it
They have nothing to fear (to fear)

Searching for a meaning greater than us
Something shiny and grand
While there's plenty right here in front of us (right here)

Somebody, somewhere is laughing
Somebody, somewhere knows
Somebody, somewhere is laughing
Laughing 'cause they know

So many people looking for answers
So many people blindly convinced
So many people looking for answers
So many people forget to exist

Call it heaven or the afterlife
Or a fire filled hell
It's just this, just here, just now
That's all, that's all, that's all

Somebody, somewhere is laughing
Somebody, somewhere knows
Somebody, somewhere is laughing
Laughing 'cause they know

So many people looking for answers
So many people blindly convinced
So many people looking for answers
So many people forget to exist

So many people looking for answers
So many people blindly convinced
So many people looking for answers


05. Down Without A Fight

Music by dredg
Lyrics by Gavin Hayes
They lay down and watched it all crumble around them
They lay down and watched their city burn
They decided to give in today
Succumb to their ways
They truly believed they couldn't get away
They couldn't get away

Regardless if it was wrong
Even if it was right
They went down without a fight
Down without a fight

Believing positivity, breeds positive happenings

Now it's known
Everyone should have been brave
Now it's known
If they had stuck around, their lives would have been saved
They just turned and walked away
No one ever thought they would
Now there's only soot and decay
Where their city once laid

Regardless if it was wrong
Even if it was right
They went down without a fight
Down without a fight

Believing positivity, breeds positive happenings

They just turned and walked away
They're never coming back
Never coming back

Regardless if it was wrong
Even if it was right (Never coming back)
They went down without a fight
Down without a fight (Never coming back)

Believing positivity, breeds positive happenings


06. The Ornament

Music by dredg
Lyrics by Gavin Hayes
Well I've been aching for someone I barely met
And I've been begging for something I'll never get
And I've been tracing the footsteps of fallen men
Hoping to fill this void with it

But I'm here all alone again
Here all alone again
Here all alone again
Hoping to fill this void with it
With it
With it

Well, I've been chasing the impossible
And I've been floating around this world
Wondering why I'm still in orbit
Choking on the fumes up here
Choking on the fumes again

But I'm here all alone again
Here all alone again
Here all alone again
Here all alone again
Hoping to fill this void with it
With it
With it

Well I've been aching for someone I barely met
And I've been begging for something I'll never get


07. The Thought Of Losing You

Music by dredg
Lyrics by Gavin Hayes
Today
Today is a new day
Put the pain away today
Tomorrow
Tomorrow's a new way
Your scars will fade someday, someday

The thought of losing you is not an option
The thought of losing you never was
The thought of losing you is not an option
It's not an option

After all this pain
The pain's no more
After all this pain
The pain endured
After all this pain
I'll be sure that the future is bright, you can follow me

Listen up, listen up
You've come a long way
Listen up to the sound
But now there's a new way
For you to forget and rebound

It's now, now, now
Get up, get on your feet
It's now, now, now
You know it worries me when you go

The thought of losing you is not an option
The thought of losing you never was
The thought of losing you is not an option
It's not an option

After all this pain
The pain's no more
After all this pain
The pain endured
After all this pain
I'll be sure that the future is bright, you can follow me

Like a moth within a windstorm
A drowning bee in a pool
Like a fly beneath the swatter
A spider crushed with a shoe

The thought of losing you is not an option
The thought of losing you never was
The thought of losing you is not an option
It's not an option

After all this pain
The pain's no more
After all this pain
The pain endured
After all this pain
I'll be sure that the future is bright, you can follow me


08. Kalathat

Music by dredg
Lyrics by Gavin Hayes
He lived the life, never offended, he played by the rules
Struck the right chords, he was never out of tune
Sacrificed every second for his kids and wife
Thought to himself, "If I only had more time..."

He said, "It's a problem that I'll solve!
It's a problem to resolve, someday"

Commuted daily to his high-tech job
Waited in line patiently with the rest of the mob
Now, a taste of success can forever jade
When the pink slip arrived, he had finally lost his way

He said, "It's a problem that I'll solve!
It's a problem to resolve, someday"

He abandoned his family, he's by himself
There's nothing left now
No substance, no wealth

His whole life was work and business
He could hardly see
The story of a jaded man
He'll never know what could've been
It's all too common these days
It's all too common these days
It's all too common these days

It's a problem that he saw
It's a problem he resolved


09. Sun Goes Down

Music by dredg
Lyrics by Gavin Hayes
(We know you really wanna join us
We know you really wanna party)

Every little thing
Every little thing around us
Every single moment
Chips away at our past
Everywhere we look
Everywhere is a notch
And everybody needs
Some sense of release

The way you look at me
It's hiding in the breeze
You can disagree
But it's all that you wanted

We feel more alive when the sun goes down
There's no time to dream, oh no
We feel more alive when the sun goes down
We're taking it gradually, oh no

Every contradiction
Every lasting remark
Every agreement
Every little spark
Every single action
Every taste of suspense
Everybody climbs over
When you put up your fence

The way you look at me
It's hiding in the breeze
You can disagree
But it's all that you wanted
We feel more alive when the sun goes down
There's no time to dream, oh no
We feel more alive when the sun goes down
We're taking it gradually, oh no

Every little thing
Every little thing around us
Every single moment
Fading into the past
Everywhere we run
Everywhere a distraction
And everybody needs
Some sense of release

The way you look at me
It's hiding in the breeze
You can disagree
But it's all that you wanted

We feel more alive when the sun goes down
There's no time to dream, oh no
We feel more alive when the sun goes down
We're taking it gradually, oh no


10. Where I'll End Up

Music by dredg
Lyrics by Gavin Hayes
You say the sky is falling, but it's the earth rising
A perception as precious as some gold
You spend all of your time in front of the tunnel
At the beginning of the light
Scrambling for someone amongst the cold

Well, I don't want to, but I've to
Where I'll end up I'm not really sure
Well, I don't want to, but I have to
Yes, I have to let you go

Change is calling but your fears keep stalling
Your potential to progress and transform
You spend all of your time solving a puzzle
A beginning with no end in sight
A violent storm waiting to unfold

Well, I don't want to, but I've to
Where I'll end up I'm not really sure
Well, I don't want to, but I have to
Yes, I have to let you go

Running like I'm stationary transient
You'll get over it
Yep, you'll get over it
Creatures of happiness to be left alone out here
Hasn't been over dressed
Feeling like we've been through this all before
You'll get over it
You'll get over it
I don't know what I'd do without all of this
You'll get over it

Well, I don't want to, but I've to
Where I'll end up I'm not really sure
Well, I don't want to, but I have to
Yes, I have to let you go


11. Before It Began

Music by dredg
Lyrics by Gavin Hayes
Travelled up and down these roads
Had to adventure out and become a man
Started in a familiar place
But ended up in a foreign land

But as the story usually goes, nothing quite went as planned
He was on an endless road, feeling like a king
Even after the initial bite, the wound still did sting
It's not an easy thing to deal with, even for the toughest man
It was already over, before it began
It was already over, before it began

The same strut was in his walk, the same fire was in his eye
Before his child was even born, he'd already said his goodbyes

He was on an endless road, feeling like a king
Even after the initial bite, the wound still did sting
It's not an easy thing to deal with, even for the toughest man
It was already over, before it began
It was already over, before it began
