Track Name: Tonight's The Night
I'll vapour
So just savour all of me
That's what you always said
But I never meant
To give you everything
I gave you everything

Kept in from endless snow
Covered from head to toe
But only seeing your face
How can I get away
And now I finally see
What this really means to me
It's not so bad for the way things have to

Always something out of grasp
I'll try to make this nothing last
Slipping through my fingers
It always lingers
Always playing by conventions
Imagination with good intentions
I force myself to push it down

Kept in from endless snow
Covered from head to toe
But only seeing your face
How can I get away
And now I finally see
What this really means to me
It's not so bad for the way things have to be

Why can't I
Just forget about the way things are
And the way things were somehow
Why can't I leave it alone
And start thinking straight

Kept in from endless snow
Covered from head to toe
But only seeing your face
How can I get away
And now I finally see
What this really means to me
It's not so bad for the way things have to be
Track Name: Grey Matter
I'm used again
I'm looking straight ahead for answers
But god, I'm losing
And end up choosing
The path I wanted
I contemplate about the world
Just because
There's things that I don't know
But no one does

I'm wasting my time
Wondering why you're lying
With your head held high
You're wasting my time

Confused again
I've looked but I can't find direction
I'm stuck in this place
Can't find an escape
The walls are closing in
I can't complain about the world
Just because
There's things that I don't know
But no one does


I'm wasting my time
Wondering why you haven't
Talked to us all night
You're wasting my time
You're wasting it

My only wish is you acted like you cared
I'm sorry but I'm just scared
I've always heard what you give is what you get
I'm sorry

This world has been falling apart for too long

I'm wasting my time
Wondering why you haven't
Talked to us all night
You're wasting my time

My only wish is you acted like you cared
I'm sorry but I'm just scared
I've always heard what you give is what you get
But you've given nothing yet

I only hope that you finish what you start
The lies are what breaks my heart
I'll be there when you turn it all around
I'm sorry
Track Name: A Little More
I've been playing the outlaw
For too long
And I think it's time to quit
You've got a million excuses
Why you're not wrong
But I don't care 'bout it

And this is for the rest of you
We've got nothing lef to prove
But we took our time
Now I'll take what's mine
And shove it down your throat

It just takes a little more

'Cause I've seen some good times
And bad times
And I know you've been there too
But at the end of the day
When it's all through
We don't need friends like you

So put at stop to the bullshit
'Cause we both know that
Nobody wants to hear it
I'd rather be on the road
At 4am
Going nowhere
But doing the best I can

Can you see me
Can you see me now
It just takes a little more

Can't you see it
It takes a little more
I'm sorry to say
That you gave it away
You cut the ties
That held you in place
Can't you see me
It takes a little more
I'd rather be on the road
At 4am
Going nowhere
But doing the best I can

'Cause I've been playing the outlaw
For too long

Can you see me
Can you see me now
Can you see me
Can you see me

Can you see me
Can you see me now
It just takes a little more
Track Name: Set The Fire
I set the fire
Outshine the light in your eyes
Smother disinterest
You're empty at best

Don't try to save this
It always ends up the same
Met with resistance
I keep my distance

And with the touch of your weathered hand
You've pushed everything to the brink again
No chance to try to make a change
No water left to kill the flame

I set the fire
Outshine the light in your eyes
Smother disinterest
You're empty at best

And I can't save you
You made a choice for yourself
Step up to fall down
You're on your own now

I set the fire
Track Name: Put Me On
I'm learning how it feels
To be lost without it
And I'm learned that nothing heals
And I'm pissed about it

I'll hold it close to me
And I'd never let it go
I know there's hopes for me
When my back's against the ropes

'Cause maybe you think that I pushed too hard
But you said you'd go twice as far

I can't believe I lost the pieces that
Fit to make my name
'Cause every city sings a different song
To me it's all the same

Every time I sing out
I know the words but
I always say something else
And every time I scream out
You will understand

That everything is worth more
Than what you make it seem
But your actions speak louder to me

'Cause maybe you think that I pushed too hard
But you said you'd go twice as far
You did your best to put me on

What are you waiting for
This world has been falling apart for too long

You did your best you put me on
Track Name: What Matters
Ten-thousand bricks can build a home
But a few words can tear it down
I don't love you anymore, he said
And watched it tumble to the ground

Weigh the actions with the words
So maybe then they can be heard
No eyes to see but ears to know
A heart that's left with no room to grow

This is not what I signed up for

Sitting alone
A light bulb flickers
To an audience of one
A night, fast-fading
To an uninviting sun

Weigh the actions with the words
So maybe then they can be heard
No eyes to see but ears to know
A heart that's left with no room to grow
Cast it out, start again
And give me time to mend

This is not what I signed up for

If these walls could talk
There's so much they'd say
If you would listen to me
Instead of walking away
This house is falling apart
It's broken, bent and decayed
Foundation built on your lies
A moral prison of the trust you've betrayed
Hypocrisy that you live every day

This is not what I signed up for
Track Name: Better Than Nothing
Are you losing sleep
Or did you think that I would try
To spend my time counting the days
To watch the sun go down
Outside your house
You know can't carry this weight

But I still never gave up
Those dreams that we made up
At least I'm not lying myself away
It's all the same to you

Of all the times to speak
You spoke out first
And all the times to leave
You chose the worst
You picked yourself
Just because it hurts

Counting the days 'til I don't bite my tongue
Constantly tried, but never proved me wrong
I've had it rough
Got my fingers crossed
That you'll be gone

But I still never gave up
Those dreams that we made up
At least I'm not lying myself away
It's all the same to you

It's all the same to you

Hoping for something is better than nothing
Hoping for something good

You try to push it down
But end up bleeding out
Track Name: Get It Right
Let me just tell you
What I want to
Without swatting away
The pretentious parade
So just make yourself at home
The petty arguments
And cause for protest
Won't change the world

Play the record front to back
It's in me for the hundredth time
Pressure like a heart attack
In your eyes

So let me just ask you
Am I allowed to
Without causing a trainwreck
Of endless charades
No wonder you're alone
The "no one understands"
Life and concept
Won't make your mark

If we could

Play the record front to back
It's in me for the hundredth time
Pressure like a heart attack
In your eyes

It doesn't matter
How hard you try
'Cause sometimes
You just won't get it right
It doesn't matter

If we could try to get it right

Play the record front to back
It's in me for the hundredth time
Pressure like a heart attack
In your eyes
Track Name: Underdogs
We've all been down this road
It leaves us no place to go
And yet old habits take over
Once again
It's all been done before
Won't play these games anymore
Until you bastards give back
What was never yours

So much to give
Nothing to take back
It never was our cross to bear
The rules we break
The shit we take to get here
You're dead to us and we don't care

The hours spent on driving our way out east
And trying to figure out this world
That Jimmy eats
And I'm stuck here waiting
And waiting
For someone to hear our voice
But still have


So much to give
Nothing to take back
It never was our cross to bear
The rules we break
The shit we take to get here
You're dead to us and we don't care

Go!

Do you really think you have
Just what it takes
To put your heart on hold
And live with your mistakes
So tell me why is it so easy
To believe
It's never been easy
Track Name: Leaving
So where were you
Through thick and thin
You pushed me down
Just so you could win

You'll get what's coming
You're falling in
Into a sea that won't let you swim

I'm leaving
Still leaving the past behind
You know I just can't stand to see you
Even if I want to
Your conscience wins
But I won't stop until you give up

I've heard it said
You think that it's simple
But sense isn't common to you

You'll think of something
You always do
To blame the people
Who have blamed you

I'm leaving
Still leaving the past behind
You know I just can't stand to see you
Even if I want to
Your conscience wins
But I

You've got me falling again
I'm falling, I'm falling in
I guess I'm on my own
This world won't leave me alone
Track Name: Wake Up
With the rising of the tide
You do your best to stay alive
You push it down
Try to stop the cosntant flow
But you can't break the world you know
So push it down
Push it down


Fired up, but calm enough
All I need is a little patience
To follow through
So who are you
I'll wait for the next one
To call me out
It's funny how
All it takes is a little anger
To push it down
Turn it all around
I'll be there, so

Wake up, it's not a dream
Won't you take one for the team
Just hold on

Conversation
Manipulation
This shit is a common theme
What you talk about
Is not what it seems, yeah

You're on again
I'm sick of it
It's over now
But the situation's been overblown
You're on your own
I've made my mistakes
But have no regrets
I'm over it
All I need is a little time
To fight it off
I'm strong enough
I'll be there the next time


Wake up, it's not a dream
Won't you take one for the team
Just hold on

Conversation
Manipulation
This shit is a common theme
What you talk about
Is not what it seems, yeah

I'll keep my head up
And do this alone
'Cause if this is what you wanted
Then you'll take the long way home

With the rising of the tide
You do your best to stay alive
You push it down
Try to stop the cosntant flow
But you can't break the world you know
So push it down
Push it down

Wake up
