All I Was tracks

Lyrics


1. LEAVE IT ALONE

Throw me a sign and I'll leave it alone
So I can bury my own
I tear at this pain, this darkness I've known
This time it has won
Retreat inside until the threat is gone
Oh how we've buried our way
Throw me a sign and I'll leave it alone

Once I feel it
Once it's in my head, I know
This time I'm leaving
For all the times that you did before

Throw me a sign and just lead us astray
But may the rest of our days, somehow reveal that it was all just a waste
And how could we have known
And where in the world has our good fortune gone?
We've got to find it some way
And how in the world did we end up alone

Once I feel it
Once it's in my head, I know
This time I'm leaving
For all the times that you did before

Once I feel it
When all trust is dead, I know
This time I'm leaving
For all the wrong that you did before

Once I feel it
Once it's in my head, I know
This time I'm leaving
For all the times that you did before

Once I feel it
When all trust is dead, I know
This time I'm leaving
For all the wrong that you did before




2. SO YOU'RE AFRAID

When the light is finally gone
Here the blind can truly see
Oh, the tide has finally turned
Now, the walls they fall on me
Now they fall on me

So you're afraid, said it's a long way down
With everything said, you were hurting
But you're much better now
Now all the time's spent

Oh, the moment's come and gone
Left with what you've come to be
But now your hope is all but lost
The years they've all been such a waste
It's all been such a waste

So you're afraid, said it's a long way down
With everything said, you were hurting
But you're much better now
Now all the time's spent

So you're afraid, said it's a long way down
With everything said, you were hurting
But you're much better now

So you're afraid, said how it's all erased
With everything fading
I know that there's a much better way




3. WISH YOU WELL

You've never dealt with this before
You unchained your grip, you know you did, and we will not take no more
An empty hand is your sacrifice
It's your upper hand for the last time

I wish you well, I wish you
I wish you well, I wish you

Your vanity it proved such a waste
You sank so low, now you know, you can't forget your place
Can't you see it slipping away?
It's your upper hand for your last day

I wish you well, I wish you
I wish you well, I wish you
I wish you well, I wish you

I wish you well, I wish you
I wish you well, I wish you
I wish you well, I wish you




4. BRAINS

It's what you're dying for
Been stripped off your pride, been damned before
But you never learn
Are you really blind?
Lost sight of the truth and lost your mind
You will break no more, break no more

Do you feel much better all alone?
And out of place
(Betrayed)
I fear the worst of days are yet to come, wash it down
(Somehow)

Lay your burden down
Decided that most would watch you drown
The truth it burns
Now you must go on
A slave to this life, your chance is gone
You will steal no more, steal no more

Do you feel much better all alone?
And out of place
(Betrayed)
I fear the worst of days are yet to come, wash it down
(Somehow)

Whoaaa
Yeahhh

All you want is more
You came in and you took it all
And all you wanted to be was hidden somewhere just out of reach
Now and forevermore, forevermore

Do you feel much better all alone?
And out of place
(Betrayed)
I fear the worst of days are yet to come, wash it down
(Somehow)

Oh, oh...




5. THE THINGS I'VE SEEN

It takes you in and tears it all out
It tears it all out
But you never know
It takes your life, turns you into someone
And you know it won't be long
Someone you'd never know

Don't claim that you know me
When you very well
That I have seen through it all
And don't claim that you know why
When you know everything
When you've seen things for what they were
Yeah

Inside you feel it taking over
It's taking over
When you feel it most
It draws you in and tears it away
It tears it away
Then it leaves you lost

Don't claim that you know me
When you very well
That I have seen through it all
And don't claim that you know why
When you know everything
When you've seen things for what they were
For what they were
Oh, oh
For what they were

Remember the days when our fears had long since died
And now how they age us
They've taken all our lives, lives

It takes you in and tears it all out
It tears it all out
But you never know
It takes your life, turns you into someone
And you know it won't be long
Someone you'd never know

Don't claim that you know me
When you very well
That I have seen through it all
And don't claim that you know why
When you know everything
When you've seen things for what they are

Sore again is this old wound
It overshadows everything
And I have seen through it all

Ah, ah
Yeah
All the things I've seen




6. YOU WASTE YOUR TIME

You should've seen both faces from the start
Beholden to the hate within your heart
You cast the world aside
In hiding from your burden one more time

But could it be your efforts were in vain?
Could it be your life is full of shame?
You threw it all away
You let it fall to pieces here today

You waste your time
You hide too much, don't ever let me find
What you're thinking, what's in your head?
You ask too much, don't ever let me be
Who are you?

We won't need to take it when you're gone
Won't embrace the liars very long
Well you're afraid to go
And you're afraid to face it when you've lost

All the ties were severed when you came
What if I could mend them once again?
Well you're afraid to learn
Forced to watch those bridges as they burn
Yeah, yeah!

You waste your time
You hide too much, don't ever let me find
What you're thinking, what's in your head?
You ask too much, don't ever let me be
Who are you?

You waste your time
You hide too much, don't ever let me find
What you're thinking, what's in your head?
You ask too much, don't ever let me be
Who are you?
Yeah!
Woah, yeah!
Who are you!




7. NEW WAY OUT

Tired of losing, losing faith
Seems that it's harder
Hard to fight through each day
Save us from breaking, breaking down
But how?
Can we restore how it was?
Or is it gone?
Gone...

Here today and gone tomorrow
Hope that there's just some other way out
Fighting too long to be the last to know
I hope that there's just some other way...
Oh

Chasing the memories of our past
These are the moments that we hold
But they fail to last
Decided I'm leaving, leaving now
But how?
Can we find nowhere to go?
And are we lost?
Lost

Here today and gone tomorrow
Hope that there's just some other way out
Fighting too long to be the last to know
I hope that there's just some other way out
A way out, yeah

Still we must carry on
'Cause we've come so far
Yeah, we've won before
And let's try not to waste
Waste one moment, let's try today
Whoa
Take back what we've lost

Here today and gone tomorrow
Hope that there's just some other way out
Fighting too long to be the last to know
I hope that there's just some other way out

(Go find your way out now)
Hope that there's just some other way out
(Go find your way out now)
Hope that there's just some other way...




8. GIVING UP

So you think you know what light will guide you home?
You were enlightened, now disgraced and now you're gone
So you think you know what time may take away?
How it steals your life, still you forget the pain
You are not alone
You know I'm right
You were safe before

I don't know when I might give in
It's haunting me again
And I feel like just giving up
Today how it wears me thin
I'm weakening again
And I feel like just giving
(Just giving)

Can you see and can you comprehend no more?
You're uninspired by the truth of who you are
You were entitled to the hope you cast away
Now hold that pity in your heart until it breaks
You once had it all
You know I'm right
You were safe before

I don't know when I might give in
It's haunting me again
And I feel like just giving up
Today how it wears me thin
I'm weakening again
And I feel like just giving
(Just giving)

Oh, how will you when it's gone
How will you break your fall?
And oh, and will you wake from this?
How will you make it right?
Oh, it happens like before
Again you've lost your way
(You know I'm right)

I don't know when I might give in
It's haunting me again
And I feel like just giving up
Today how it wears me thin
I'm weakening again
And I feel like just giving up!




9. PROOF

Hide it like another shame
So we may start again
Reach inside and tear away
You pray now for the end
Try to find another goal, while others are erased
Feed it like another soul
Oh

Lost
Is the proof now
Wasted all again
Gone
Is our way out
Time and time again

Mourn it like another gone
Another passed away
Know that we have just begun, to forge a better day
Open like another door
It's feeling right again
Sold it like another soul

Lost
Is the proof now
Wasted all again
Gone
Is our way out
Time and time again

Lost
Is the proof now
Wasted all again
Gone
Is our way out
Time and time again

Lost
Is the proof now
Wasted all again
Gone
Is our way out
Time and time again

Lost
Is the proof now
Wasted all again
Gone
Is our way out
Time and time and time and time again




10. ALL I WAS

Would you finally know it when it came?
Would it have a reason, have a name?
Would you truly hate it when it's gone?
And curse it all along

All I was
So unlike the way you know me
All these dreams
Are so unlike the way they were before

Would it finally change you, will you break?
Would it leave you angered, 'cause you pain?
Could it be the threat's already gone?
And was it all along?

All I was
So unlike the way you know me
All these dreams
Are so unlike the way they were before
Before

All I was
So unlike the way you know me
All these dreams
Are so unlike the way they were before
So unlike the way!




11. DOESN'T MATTER

Oh, though I wait
Like all the times before
How I wait to make it right
I'm forgiving
Oh, that's right because I'm living another life

Inside the hate is gone
I've held it for too long
You could be right
But it doesn't matter
This time the burden's gone
Decided went to love
You could be right
But it doesn't matter

Oh, how I've won and set it right
Because I've become, become upright
But oh, how I break
Might return once again to my old ways
But how I fight

Inside the hate is gone
I've held it for too long
You could be right
But it doesn't matter
This time the burden's gone
Decided went to love
You could be right
But it doesn't matter

Oh

Inside the hate is gone
I've held it for too long
You could be right
But it doesn't matter
This time the burden's gone
Decided went to love
You could be right
But it doesn't matter




12. DECAY

Don't fight, there's nothing you can do
(Let it get the best of you)
I feel there's nothing I can say
(Look what you've gone and done to me)
Reach down and throw it all away

You know this fight it can't be won
It can't be won

They said that
All we had we've wasted
Something like decay
You know it won't be long
Before we've spent all our lives complacent
And isn't that a shame?
We've faded for so long

Given a life and no one knew
(Had not one thing to do with you)
Your will is frozen to the core
(You want it less but need it more)
Reach down and feel what you've become

You know your fight has just begun
It's just begun

They said that
All we had we've wasted
Something like decay
You know it won't be long
Before we've spent all our lives complacent
And isn't that a shame?
We've faded for so long
So long

Fading like decay
Fading like decay
Fading like decay
Fading like decay

They said that
All we had we've wasted
Something like decay
You know it won't be long
Before we've spent all our lives complacent
And isn't that a shame?
We've faded for so long
So long
