Sounds of a Playground Fading
You can find all you need
The message is in the silence
Whisper words to calm your mind
Reach inside

Numb the pain

Come around with answers

We are ghosts of the concrete world
Genetic codes of a dying breed
Will I be left behind?
Sounds of a playground fading

Staring into bright lights
I am what I've done
It is useless to hide
An empty chamber
Guess I was part of a plan

We are ghosts of the concrete world
Genetic codes of a dying breed
Will I be left behind?
Sounds of a playground fading

We're running out of time
Can't seem to recognize
What put us here in the first place
Counting down the days, beginning of the end

We are ghosts of the concrete world
Genetic codes of a dying breed
Will I be left behind?..
 
 
Deliver Us
Remind me I'm golden...
The fortress above the sun
Why don't you spend nowhere with me?
Follow the river and the path of the ones I name...
On the shore

Forever I can't find
Struggling in a world undefined...
Or destroyed
I don't want it to be
I'm not in to live

Fly into the distance
Disappear for a while
I can't make sense of this
But we're here today feeling alive

It starts to fall apart
Let me take control
Reminisce

This is nothing more
Something I will find again, deliver us
Deliver us

Can't hear the words you say

Does it really matter?
I'd give the world to you if you just

Fly into the distance
Disappear for a while
I can't make sense of this
But we're here today alive!

Fly into the distance
Disappear for a while
I can't make sense of this
But we're here today alive!
 
 
All for Me
Until the world ceases to move!
A burning feeling, let me call, "This is real!"
I wish one more thing!
I flinch my hands and bang my head!

Take whatever comes to you,
All the while - I don't need another friend.

I burn when I do the things I do for you.
Forever the night, it's all for me now,
I'm sure that one day I can get you...
All that you lost.

I'm never told, "Bad I stay, so sick in me."
I'm dying alone.
We stand to fight for nothing!
Without a thought of reason!
We will never be OK!

I burn when I do the things I do for you.
Forever the night, and it's all for me now,
I'm sure that one day I can get you...
All you lost.

A growing pain, it is hard to say what brought the darkest burden.
For some of us there is no answer.

Chains are breaking, I regret this built up inside of me.
There's a storm coming.
I will serve no more, 'til my heavy last breath!

I burn when I do the things I do for you.
Forever, the night, it's all for me now,
I'm sure that one day I can get you...
All that you lost.
 
 
The Puzzle
And I tried to think
Tried to paint the picture
I lived it all
Wouldn't have to feel this way

Looking for something to believe in
I think I've done my time
One by one the pieces fall
Tell me what it is to believe

You can tell days by their faces
There is always signs
Answers to the puzzle
Grab a piece of the light

Keep pretending
I can handle everything
You'll never understand me
And I don't care what you think
Or maybe I do
 
 
Fear Is the Weakness
At least you could have tried
It is way past time and we're scattering ashes
You take everything inside, place in me now
You are leaving me with scars

Fear is the weakness in all of us
It's sad to see you go
It's not meant to be easy but you drag us down
Burning of the evidence groans

The same road for far too long
It's not meant to be
We are losing identity
Faith has been denied
Let's not pretend
This is the first time we just don't belong

What world do you perceive?
Autumn cold, and no one cares for anyone
Waiting for the final blow
Do you have strength at all?
One more day, then we fade away

Fear is the weakness in all of us
It's sad to see you go
It's not meant to be easy but you drag us down
Burning of the evidence groans

The same road for far too long
It's not meant to be
We are losing identity
Faith has been denied
Let's not pretend
This is the first time we just don't belong here
 
 
Where the Dead Ships Dwell
The pictures slowly fades,
The walls are closing in,
And there I was, cursing the ground,
Unable to understand

I won't let the world break me
So I need to change direction
Nothing special I'm far from perfect
Light the way for me

I won't say I'm sorry, I got what I deserve

Feel I was running an endless mile,
Last time it burns
And I'm dying inside
All of this will turn to ash
A change for a piece of mind

Walking where the dead ships dwell
These are shores I left behind
Streets were getting smaller
And I have to leave

Feel I was running an endless mile,
Last time it burns
And I'm dying inside
All of this will turn to ash
A change for a piece of mind

All I hear is noise
Heart so false
So guess, I took it for granted
I know I went too far
I won't say I'm sorry
I got what I deserved
I got what I deserved

Feel I was running an endless mile,
Last time it burns
And I'm dying inside
All of this will turn to ash
A change for a piece of mind

Feel I was running an endless mile,
Last time it burns
And I'm dying inside
All of this will turn to ash
A change for a piece of mind
 
 
The Attic
There's someone in the attic
Building a strange machine
Never really seen him
But I think he works all day
Blinded by the world outside,
I stay inside
Hardly know my name
But it's getting better by time

I saw something in the mirror
Someone's watching me
If I hide in the attic
He will never get to me
I found some rope on the floor
I have to build a trap
So I start on my machine
I am never to be seen
 
 
Darker Times
September's here again
Every insecurity reminds you
Who's at the helm?
Darker times
With fear in the eyes
Who's the man in charge?

Invented isolation
Alone and safe inside
Struggle with words,
That make sense in time
Yet waiting for someone to enter

Say, "I have a better plan"

Never have to worry
For all that we know
The truth be told
As we lay down low
Walking the thin line
Let the happiness in
For now it's fine
We're living the lie

When light breaks
Another way to matter
All questions somehow answered
When life comes crushing
At the early break of day
We've only come so far
 
 
Ropes
How much can we take before we care to settle?
Thought we were set for a perfect scene
Everyone is waiting for a failure
Something I can't please and justify
The void within my eyes
Everyone is waiting for something they cannot have

Why don't you drop your guard
I'm on my knees
You got the mindset of a killer
And it will not take you far
If I had the answer would that make you stay?
This is the time and place it is your moment of fate

If this would be your last breath
Would it change a thing?
Dive head first into the fire

If you just let me I'll find a way
To ease your mind and for you to stay
And I will untie all the ropes
It's hard for me but believe me, I'm trying

What are you longing for?
What are you longing for?
What are you longing for?

If I had the answer
Would that make you stay
This is the time and place
You are waiting for something you cannot have

If this would be your last breath
Would it change a thing?
Dive head first into the fire

If you just let me I'll find a way
To ease your mind and for you to stay
And I will untie all the ropes
It's hard for me

If you just let me I'll find a way
To ease your mind and for you to stay
And I will untie all the ropes
It's hard for me, believe me, I'm trying
 
 
Enter Tragedy
Twisting tongue

Fallen off the edge again
Need some space

Need disgrace

I'm confused I'm a maze

I need for you to pick me up, when I fall down
There's so much more

We can go far

But I can't control my selfish ways

Enter tragedy, slash my soul
Why is it a part of the plan?
Do you question me?

I question you

Who's the man in front of me?
I'm blindfolded, I can't see

Need a reason, I'm left empty
There's so much more, we can go far,

But I can't control my selfish ways

This inner apathy, brings me to life
I know it's strange and it's draining me
I'm tired, I'm fed up, I'm a Slave
 
 
Jester's Door
I say goodbye to you all at once -

Don't dare to face you all alone.

I went from wreckage to world class with a box of t-shirts and some more records to sell

but times have changed - I have to defend my actions.

The foundation crumbles and I have to leave.

Thanks for everything - I couldn't ask for more...

I say I love you all... as I vanish through the Jester's Door.
 
 
A New Dawn
I dreamed that you had died
I'm forever alone
I'm weakened, I'm frightened
This place's about to change
Things you said to me
Believe and the things you might find
Will turn into a march

I stand alone and breathe again
I won't stop until this is through

And I can't wait to see the sunrise again
(Its moments like this)
I am what you'll never be
To better what I am
You won't hear lies from me

Feel the sudden aches
Time to get moving
Getting somewhere with no directions
I swear to you it will never be the same
It's astray, but the road lies open
Leaving all tears behind

I stand alone and breathe again
I won't stop until this is through

And I can't wait to see the sunrise again
(It's moments like this)
I am what you'll never be
To better what I am
You won't hear lies from me

And I can't wait to see the sunrise again
(It's moments like this)
I am what you'll never be
To better what I am
You won't hear lies from me

Erase darkness from my mind
Last remaining night
From here to everywhere

I stand alone and breathe again
I won't stop until this is through

And I can't wait to see the sunrise again
(It's moments like this)
I am what you'll never be
To better what I am
You won't hear lies from me
 
 
Liberation
I know what it takes to break you

You know I never sleep
Just because you made them think
Doesn't mean the world will fall into place

Took some time but now you know
Tomorrow is too late

Close your eyes, walk with me, I'll set you free
And everything you ask for

I found a way
And I'm returning soon
I have to see those who do not know
Rest in peace, I'm coming for you
And will be, I will be with you
Tonight

If today was your last day
Would that change a thing?
You probably believe what you told them
Live each moment like your last

Well, close your eyes, walk with me, I'll set you free
And everything you ask for

I found a way
And I'm returning soon
I have to see those who do not know
Rest in peace, I'm coming for you
And will be, I will be with you
Tonight

I found a way
And I'm returning soon
I have to see those who do not know
Rest in peace, I'm coming for you
I will be with you

I found a way
And I'm returning soon
I have to see those who do not know
Rest in peace, I'm coming for you
I will be, I will be with you
Tonight
