01. Agony

Music & lyrics by Peter Wichers, Matt Guillory, James LaBrie
One voice she hears
Taking control, leaving its mark... Agony
Can't make her see it my way
Restrict, you binge
Lunatic fringe struggles within... Agony
Losing her identity

Helpless feeling, It's eating you
Taking its toll

You cannot give up again
Crack the door and he'll let himself right in
Rotten to the core, that grin
Lose a little more, patience wearing thin

When nothing else matters
Tattered, shattered
Abused, you are battered
Scattered, shattered
Know it's all messed up
You cannot give up

Wasting away, skin bruised and gray
Falling apart... Agony
Shut down more than yesterday
The perfect you
Now you're see through
It's killing you... Agony
No grasp of reality

Helpless feeling, It's eating you
Taking its toll

You cannot give up again
Crack the door and he'll let himself right in
Rotten to the core, that grin
Lose a little more, patience wearing thin

When nothing else matters
Tattered, shattered
Abused, you are battered
Scattered, shattered
Know it's all messed up
You cannot give up

You cannot give up again
Crack the door and he'll let himself right in
Rotten to the core, that grin
Lose a little more, patience wearing thin

When nothing else matters
Tattered, shattered
Abused, you are battered
Scattered, shattered
Know it's all messed up
You cannot give up


02. Undertow

Music & lyrics by Matt Guillory
The waves crash over me
And there's no time to breathe
I think I might be in too deep

I don't know up from down
Can't stop from spinnin' round
No hope of landing on my feet

Nowhere to go, Nowhere to go
Nowhere to go, I'm stuck inside a nightmare

When I'm scared an silently scream "no"
My heart's beating fast but I'm moving slow
Before I start sinking below
You grab on and never let me go
Don't let me go, Don't let me go
When I need you the most
You pull me out of the undertow

But nine times out of ten
I'll just fall in again
And one would think that I would learn

After all this time now

Repeat the same mistakes
Get trapped under the breaks
And playin' with fire just gets me
Gets me, Gets me burned

Nowhere to go, Nowhere to go
Nowhere to go, I'm stuck inside a nightmare

When I'm scared an silently scream "no"
My heart's beating fast but I'm moving slow
Before I start sinking below
You grab on and never let me go
Don't let me go, Don't let me go
When I need you the most
You pull me out of the undertow

Face down in the sand
Think I understand now
Seen my stubborn ways
And it's time I give a damn

When I'm scared an silently scream "no"
My heart's beating fast but I'm moving slow
Before I start sinking below
You grab on and never let me go
Don't let me go
Don't let me go
When I need you the most
You pull me out of the undertow


03. Slight Of Hand

Music & lyrics by Peter Wichers, Matt Guillory, James LaBrie
Turned a page, In my life
Thought it through, Wasn't easy to do
Weighed the risks, Slight of hand
If I miss, Then life's not worth a damn

Too dark, to see, Too light, to feel
One's fate, is sealed

You're nothing but a Liar

Don't try and change me
Waste of time
You'll never convince me
I'll walk away a better man
From something you don't understand

Don't try to change me
Waste my time
You'll never convince me
I'll walk away it's who I am
I don't expect you'd understand

On the list I've been made
A high risk, Should have taken the fall
Odds against, Won't survive
No defense, End this once and for all

Too dark, to see, Too light, to feel
One's fate, is sealed

You're nothing but a Liar

Don't try and change me
Waste of time
You'll never convince me
I'll walk away a better man
From something you don't understand

Don't try to change me
Waste my time
You'll never convince me
I'll walk away it's who I am
I don't expect you'd understand

Let them try, All they want
Come what may, I am through
With the lies, and their ways
Not the first, Who has tried
Nor the last they will betray

Don't try and change me
Waste of time
You'll never convince me
I'll walk away a better man
From something you don't understand

Don't try to change me
Waste my time
You'll never convince me
I'll walk away it's who I am
I don't expect you'd understand

Don't try and change me
Waste of time
You'll never convince me
I'll walk away a better man
From something you don't understand

Don't try to change me
Waste my time
You'll never convince me
Much better if I'm left alone
And better to be on my own


04. Back On The Ground

Music & lyrics by Matt Guillory
You're lost in outer space
And I don't mean to burst your balloon
Put yourself in my place
While you orbit around the moon

You know I've tried my best
You never gave me the time of day
But now you're out of breath
And heading 'cross the milky way

Gotta get your feet, back on the ground
Shake off the stardust, gotta get your feet
Back on the ground, just not on venus

Don't make it any worse
Just throw it in reverse
Come on come on
Come on down to earth

Gotta get your feet, back on the ground
Back on the ground, back on the ground

Riding a solar wind
As you weave through saturn's rings
You dig your heels in
But that's not gonna solve a thing

You know I've tried my best
You never gave me a the time of day
But now you're out of breath
And heading 'cross the milky way

No treactor beam
To pull you here
And break you through
The atmosphere
The vacant space between your ears
Doesn't get it, Doesn't get it

You know I've tried my best
You never gave me the time of day

Gotta get your feet, back on the ground
Shake off the stardust, gotta get your feet
Back on the ground, just not on venus

Don't make it any worse
Just throw it in reverse
Come on come on
Come on down to earth

Gotta get your feet, back on the ground
Back on the ground, back on the ground


05. I Got You

Music & lyrics by Matt Guillory
Just me myself an I
I just don't get it right
No matter what I try

And I just want to run
From what's about to come
I can't keep hope alive

When I veer so far off the course
When I'm stuck and can't take anymore

It's easy to forget
When I'm scared half to death
You never left my side

I don't need stars I can wish upon
And I don't need some magician with a magic wand
That could wave just to make me strong
Cause I got you

I don't need stars I can wish upon
And I don't need some magician with a magic wand
That could wave just to make me strong
Cause I got you

When down and out of luck
And things just don't add up
When I just want to shout

And wrong just feels so right
Not always black or white
Can't figure this thing out

When I veer so far off of the course
When I'm stuck and can't take anymore

It's easy to forget
When I'm confused at best
You rid me of my doubts

I don't need stars I can wish upon
I don't need some magician with a magic wand
That could wave just to make me strong
Cause I got you

I don't need stars I can wish upon
And I don't need some magician with a magic wand
That could wave just to make me strong
Cause I got you

When I veer so far off of the course
When I'm stuck and can't take anymore

It's easy to forget
When I'm scared half to death
You never left my side

I don't need stars I can wish upon
I don't need some magician with a magic wand
That could wave just to make me strong
Cause I got you

I don't need stars I can wish upon
And I don't need some magician with a magic wand
That could wave just to make me strong
Cause I got you


06. Holding On

Music & lyrics by Matt Guillory
Sitting here, Silently
As you tear me down
With your words, All night

What went wrong
You're not you
And it's scaring me
Am I hearing you right

Like a house of
Cards in the wind
One big gust and
We could cave in
I don't want us
Haunted by what might have been

So I'm holding on
Holding on, Holding on
I just don't want to let go
I'm holding on, Holding on, Holding on
Cause deep down I already know
We're close
And there's no turning back once
We're down that road
I'm holding on, Holding on
I'm holding on to you

Three a.m., Half asleep
On a beat up couch
Praying that we'll pull through
If I could, I'd go back
And fix my mistakes
All the things I can't undo

Like a house of cards in the wind
One big gust and, We could cave in
I don't want us
Haunted by what might have been

Stop placing blame because
Neither of us are perfect
It's not complicated
So don't analyze it to death

So I'm holding on
Holding on, Holding on
I just don't want to let go
I'm holding on, Holding on, Holding on
Cause deep down I already know
We're close
And there's no turning back once
We're down that road
I'm holding on, Holding on
I'm holding on to you


07. Lost In The Fire

Music & lyrics by Peter Wichers, Niclas Lundin, Matt Guillory
Here we go again
A night filled with everything but sleep
Trying to catch up to you
Inside of this maze of one-way streets

Every single turn, Seems our story burns
But I won't accept defeat

The flames might be growing high
But I'm gonna stay and fight
I'm not gonna run
Bring it on and let's see the smoke rise
We're not getting lost in the fire

Guilt will fuel the pain
And I won't get caught up in regrets
Born, just let it all burn
We'll get out alive with one last breath

Let the battle rage, I am not afraid
And I won't accept defeat

The flames might be growing high
But I'm gonna stay and fight
I'm not gonna run
Bring it on and let's see the smoke rise
We're not getting lost in the fire

By the skin of our teeth
We'll survive in one piece
If you hold on tight
We can get through this
If you'll believe

The flames might be growing high
But I'm gonna stay and fight
I'm not gonna run
Bring it on and let's see the smoke rise
We're not getting lost in the fire

But I'm gonna stay and fight
I'm not gonna run
Bring it on and let's see the smoke rise
We're not getting lost in the fire


08. Letting Go

Music & lyrics by Peter Wichers, Matt Guillory, James LaBrie
It's the same, All you see
Nothing's new, Time to aim
Smash the mold, Break right through

Right now you can't get by
And even if you try
You know that deep inside
It's killing... you (it's killing... me)
It's killing... you (it's killing... me)
It's killing... you

Letting go
What's defining me, Letting go
I can't make them believe or reason
I can tell by your reaction
You don't have my back
I'm letting go, All that I am

Know it fits, Rest assured
It's enough, You admit
Looking back, Was messed up

What has become of me
I'll take that chance, break free
There's nothing here for me
Stuck in a rut, I'm feelin stuck
I'm feelin stuck

Letting go, What's defining me, Letting go
I can't make them believe, or reason
I can tell by their reaction
They don't have my back
I'm letting go, All that I am

I will survive, With or without you
My head held high, With or without you

Letting go, What's defining me, Letting go
Getting harder to breathe, or willing
I can tell by their reaction
They don't have my back

I'm letting go, All that I am
Letting go, What's defining me, Letting go
I can't make them believe, or reason
I can tell by their reaction
They don't have my back
Letting go, All that I am


09. Destined To Burn

Music & lyrics by Peter Wichers, Matt Guillory, James LaBrie
You've been taken
From all that
You've ever known
There's no question
You're already on your own
What's going on here
What have we done
Someting's wrong
This can't be right
Coffles and strangers
Pushing further
Beaten well into the night

We cannot alter or change
Gainst our will held in chains
Difference in colour of skin
Is my sin

What gives them the right to
Take away
All I could've loved til my
Dying day
Is this bridge really destined to burn

Pale skinned serpent
There's no conscience eating you
My sole purpose
What God has done onto you

What if the tables were reversed
With all your rights taken away
Suddenly perverse
It's a nightmare
No one's waking you today

We cannot alter or change
Gainst our will held in chains
Difference in colour of skin
Is my sin

What gives them the right to
Take away
All I could've loved til my
Dying day
Is this bridge really destined to burn

Shrouded in fear
Morales reversed now
Battered til the core to one's soul
Lighter a shade
You steal then you break
Even one's own faith

We cannot alter or change
Gainst our will held in chains
Difference in colour of skin
Is my sin

What gives them the right to
Take away
All I could've loved til my
Dying day
Is this bridge really destined to burn
Destined to Burn, Destined to Burn


10. Say You're Still Mine

Music & lyrics by Viktor Brunö, Tobias Gustavsson, Niclas Lundin, Michel Zitron
Looking away, Don't wanna see you crying
Cause I can feel it, There's no escape
All of the lies are there

If I could I would go back
I would turn back the time
But all I can say, I'll do what it takes from now

Say you're still mine, That we're not broken in two
Say you're still mine, Say it's me and you

I never thought
That I'd be so close to sinking
It hurts to look in your eyes
It cuts like a knife

I know I've gone too far, Afraid I broke your heart
But you're all that I want
You're all that I need to go on

Say you're still mine, That we're not broken in two
Say you're still mine, Say it's me and you

Cause without you, I'm dying, I'm dying
I won't give up trying, Just say you're mine
Say it's me and you

Say you're still mine, That we're not broken in two
Say you're still mine, Say it's me and you

Say you're still mine, That we're not broken in two
Say you're still mine, Say it's me and you


11. Amnesia

Music & lyrics by Matt Guillory
Your cold voice, Locks me up
Like a prison cell, Desolate
And devoid of light

One day I will break free
Like a convict would
Scale a wall in the dead of night
That's right

Cause I've been trying to forget you
Anyway, anyhow
I never wanted some amnesia more than I do now
So I can erase, The memories of
A love that was never true
So I could forget you

You're a scene, In my head
That's been on repeat
I need a way to turn it off

One day, I'll close my eyes
And you won't be there because
I will find a way to make it stop

Cause I've been trying to forget you
Anyway, anyhow
I never wanted some amnesia more than I do now
So I can erase, The memories of
A love that was never true
So I could forget you

Nothing will be like it was before
I'm not gonna need you anymore
Done going through the revolving door
The revolving door

Cause I've been trying to forget you
Anyway, anyhow
I never wanted some amnesia more than I do now
So I can erase, The memories of
A love that was never true
So I could forget you

Cause I've been trying to forget you
Anyway, anyhow
I never wanted some amnesia more than I do now
So I can erase, The memories of
A love that was never true
So I could forget you


12. I Will Not Break

Music & lyrics by Peter Wichers, Matt Guillory, James LaBrie
Tightening its grip on me
My moral compass spinning
Draining my live empty
Give me something to believe in

Wound up, I'm way too tight
Fear tearing, wearing me thin
And knowing it ain't right
Give me something to believe in

Wanna move on, gotta face the music
There's only one way out
Tired of stumbling
Searching endlessly
And giving in to more than doubt

Let them take, All that they can
Each one of them, I will not bend
I ain't broke, They can't break me
As I am, Not one of them
These so called friends, They're a joke

Headstrong your apathy
Neurotic and quite nervous
Obtuse propensity
Still convinced it serves your purpose

Lacking the sense to care
Degrading and pubescent
Discretion worse for wear
Is this something to believe in

Wanna move on, gotta face the music
There's only one way out
Tired of stumbling
Searching endlessly
And giving in to more than doubt

Let them take, All that they can
Each one of them, I will not bend
I ain't broke, They can't break me
As I am, Not one of them
These so called friends, They're a joke

Know I have to walk
Have to walk away
Never seemed to fit most of the time
I'll be better off
Better off this way
And taking back what's mine

Let them take, All that they can
Each one of them, I will not bend
I ain't broke, they can't break me
As I am, not one of them
These so called friends, they're a joke

Let them take, All that they can
Each one of them, I will not bend
I ain't broke, they can't break me
As I am, not one of them
These so called friends, they're a joke ...


13. Unraveling

Music & lyrics by Niclas Lundin, Matt Guillory
I know that look hidden in your eyes
I've seen it more than I dare to count tonight
And I don't wanna fight

It's like a storm heading straight for me
The thunder rain and the lighting unleashed
It's getting hard to breathe

And at the break of dawn
We'll search through the remains of broken hearts
Are we losing everything, Cause underneath the veil
We're two pages in a hopeless fairy tale unraveling

I wanna speak but I hate the words
I wanna cry but my tears come out as fire
How do we break this curse

When did our world start caving in
We're crashing down in a violent spin and love is evaporating

And at the break of dawn
We'll search through the remains of broken hearts
Are we losing everything, Cause underneath the veil
We're two pages in a hopeless fairy tale unraveling

We're like a ship sinking in slow motion
How do we fix what can't be unbroken
Don't really know but I'm slowly losing my faith, Losing my faith

And at the break of dawn
We'll search through the remains of broken hearts
Are we losing everything
Cause underneath the veil
We're two pages in a hopeless fairy tale unraveling


14. Why

Music & lyrics by Matt Guillory
New day, But the same routine
Is our engine almost, Running out of steam

But we pretend that we don't see the ugly truth
Crazy, That we drag this on
When it's crystal clear, That the fire's gone

There's nothing left but heavy scares for us to wear

But here we are, Lost in the dark

Drifting apart

So tell me why, Why are we wasting our time
Are we that scared of goodbye, That we'd rather
Be living a lie, Tell me why
Can't we move on with our lives

If there ever was a chance
Guess it disappeared
Slipped through our hands

It's come and gone ain't coming back
Don't hold your breath

Now we're, Just a masquerade
Stuck in a make believe, Cause we're too afraid

We're running from reality to a dead end

So here we are, Lost in the dark

Drifting part

So tell me why, Why are we wasting our time
Are we that scared of goodbye, That we'd rather
Be living a lie, Tell me why
Can't we move on with our lives

How can we demagnetize
Pull apart and break the ties for good
Feels like it's impossible
To walk away when I know that I should

So tell me why, Why are we wasting our time
Are we that scared of goodbye, That we'd rather
Be living a lie, Tell me why
Can't we move on with our lives

So tell me why, Why are we wasting our time
Are we that scared of goodbye, That we'd rather,
Be living a lie, Tell me why
Can't we move on with our lives
