Track Name: The Wolves Are Coming
The Wolves Are Coming

No one cares about every single second of your day
No one cares about all the stupid shit you say
All you're really doing is just trying to make yourself look cooler than you really are

So stay in your little cave
It's not like we can hear you anyway
When you scream for help no one will come
Cuz everyone just wants you gone

The wolves are coming
to tear off all your fingers and rip out your throat
so you dont choke on your own words
They'll feed off all your wounds and sorrow
Make sure you see no tomorrow
and the sheep will know to swallow their tongue

Your simple mindedness makes you sound like a fool
Your mediocre attempts make you look like a tool
All you're really doing is just acting like someone else instead of being who you really are

So stay in your little cave
It's not like we can hear you anyway
When you scream for help no one will come
Cuz everyone just wants you gone

The wolves are coming
to tear off all your fingers and rip out your throat
so you dont choke on your own words
They'll feed off all your wounds and sorrow
Make sure you see no tomorrow
and the sheep will know to swallow their tongue
Track Name: Throw It In Reverse
Throw It In Reverse

Just set me free
I've been trapped in this cage for so long now
But I have the key
But my hands are bound to the floor now
I want to break free
from this vicious cycle of my own life
here in this small little town

So let me fly let me fly away
But I've chained up my own god damn leg
I'm still attached to my own past
so much that I have no place to go but
Backwards
No place to go but

Look at the sky
Well it seems like it's so far away
Get off the ground
But my destination isn't clear to me
I want to break free
from this vicious cycle of my own life
here in this small little town

So let me fly let me fly away
But I've chained up my own god damn leg
I'm still attached to my own past
so much that I have no place to go but
Backwards
No place to go but

So let me fly let me fly away
But I've chained up my own god damn leg
I'm still attached to my own past
so much that I have no place to go but
Backwards
No place to go but home
Track Name: As Expected
As Expected

I don't wanna to know
if everything will go
as expected
I'll see it through to the end

I have no gripes no doubt
that we will figure it out
and be whole again
it's not too late

I don't want to know
if everything will go
as expected
I'll see it through to the end

I have no doubt
that we will figure it out
and be whole again
it's not too late

I just want to know
that everything has gone
as expected

I have no doubt
that we will figure it out in the end
and be whole again
It's not too late
It's not too late
Woah...
It's not too late
Woah...
We're not too late
Track Name: I'll Live
I'll Live

We go out on friday night
to forget our mundane lives
Drinking and laughing with our friends
I'll try to make the best of this

But everyone's got someone except me
and you keep passing glances towards me
but your leaving soon you wont be near
So I guess I'll try to make the best of this time right here

But I just want you to know
but I dont think you'll ever know
Cuz everytime I try to I end up going blind too
But I would bet it all on you

So give me a sign
So we can party for the rest of the night
and wake up the next morning together
So give me a sign
So we can party for the rest of the night
and wake up the next morning together
and not remember

Now that we're good and bent
I'll loosen my tongue a bit
You've shot me signals all night
So I guess that I'll confess while I have time

But here's where it gets hazey to me
I sort of remember what did we speak
But all that matters is what happens in the end
Cuz that's the night I fell in love for one more night again

So I just want you to know
but I know it will never go
Cuz everytime I try to I end getting blinded
but I would give it all for you

So give me a sign
So we can party for the rest of the night
and wake up the next morning together
So give me a sign
So we can party for the rest of the night
and wake up the next morning together
and not remember

1...2...3...

So give me a sign
So we can party for the rest of the night
and wake up the next morning together
So give me a sign
So we can party for the rest of the night
and wake up the next morning together
and not remember
Track Name: Highs & Lows
Highs & Lows

You're not that kind of girl
and I'm not complaining
A demoralizing, unforgiving lie
You are not just a tool
provided you're in this too
Greenish eyes and wintery drives
Waterbury exit 10 - next right

Travel the continent
stuck in an old folks home
going to Indiana
I will never be alone
Go to college
become a physicist
UVM I-T
I've gotta learn to deal with it

I support you in these tides
We're swaying to and fro and I
I support you in your highs and lows

Awkward tries at broken ties
I walk painting myself a crooked line
I just need to know if
that's how these things go
I remember the sound of the hum of the car in the wind on pavement
back when we told ourselves we could make it
(The band's gonna make it!)

Travel the continent
stuck in an old folks home
going to Indiana
I will never be alone
Go to college
become a physicist
UVM I-T
I've gotta learn to deal with it

I support you in these tides
We're swaying to and fro and I
I support you in your

I support you in these tides
In these tides

It's not detatching
If it is what do you want
I wish you were here my friend
Will I wake up
Am I paranoid
I close my eyes and then I hold my breath

Travel the continent
stuck in an old folks home
going to Indiana
I will never be alone
Go to college
become a physicist
UVM I-T
I've gotta learn to deal with it

I support you in these tides
We're swaying to and fro and I
I support you in your highs and lows
I support you in your highs and lows
Track Name: Firefight
Firefight

I'm hung out to die over this raging fire again
I can't fight my way out to the heavens
Feed the fire and just tell them
I'll sing about what I want
in the face of the mistakes that I have got
but I'll tell you this right now
I'll always be fighting for myself

Cuz I'll keep on pushing
keep on moving up against the wind
I'll rise to the top even if I die in the midst
Cuz even if they tell me that I made a mistake
I'll admit my wrong, keep pushin on
and sing one more song

The fire in my eyes can't be dowsed by all the stupid lies
That they told me to hold me back and not survive
To progress the ties they themself made together
and I had not to make myself go further
But I'll tell you this right now
I'll always be fighting for myself

Cuz I'll keep on pushing
keep on moving up against the wind
I'll rise to the top even if I die in the midst
Cuz even if they tell me that I made a mistake
I'll admit my wrong, keep pushin on
and sing one more song

Cuz I'll keep on pushing
keep on moving up against the wind
I'll rise to the top even if I die in the midst
Cuz even if they tell me that I made a mistake
I'll admit my wrong, keep pushin on
and sing another song about
Another song about
You
Track Name: A New Nation
A New Nation

My eyelids feel so heavy and only I know the reason why.
I’ve been broken down.
It would take a world changing to shake me
from this busted state that I’m in.

As disappointment and all the shame
slowly seep into my mind,
I just wish that I could feel whole again
but I ache like that sensation’s been cut off
of me.

If I’m riding to the nation of my next life,
tie it ‘til my necks arranged. Make sure it’s tight.
Safe from heart ache and from fictions that breed lies,
I’ll be riding my way home.

How can this outwit common sense?
A concept that can’t be defeated by logic?
I feel attacked under my own skin
by the suite I can never take off
of me.

If I’m riding to the nation of my next life,
tie it ‘til my necks arranged. Make sure it’s tight.
Safe from heart ache and from fictions that breed lies,
I’ll be riding my way home.

Breathe… Breathe… Breathe… Remember to breathe
or you’ll never make it.
Track Name: Bulletproof Melody
Bulletproof Melody

I've never gathered dead air faster from the back of my blackened lungs
As I thought “begging can't save us now”.
I clawed my way to higher ground.
A knowing sanction can't forgive this.
Abomination not “creation”.
I cried through the blood, through the sweat, and the pain
as I shouted “I will not stand down!”

Remember when our hearts were almost legends?
Remember when our hearts were almost?

From now until the day I die I struggle through each night.
I attempt to compensate by loading up on every single toxic vice I have.
Seeing visions of the places, the faces, desimation and eradacation.
I feel the pressure growing from these horns that were never there before.
How can they say that everything will be ok?
I cleanse and purge, try to purify, but I will never wash these wings clean.
They're stained but I just can't help but kill myself with blame.
As I shouted "I will not stand down!"

Remember when our hearts were almost legends?
Remember when our hearts were almost?
Track Name: Empty Soul
Empty Soul

I wade this earth wandering
Searching for something to believe in
Something that holds hope
I've forgotten what it's like
to hold something close
and dear to my heart
My heart

I can't remember where my soul is
What is my name
What is my purpose
I have to figure out what was lost
So I can move on
So I can move on

I barely remember memories
or something that I might have been
or maybe
Someone I'd like to be
I dont know if I am still breathing myself
Am I just dead
or am I floating

I can't remember where my soul is
What is my name
What is my purpose
I have to figure out what was lost
So I can move on
So I can move on
