Lyrics


1. SLIP TO THE VOID

To the dark
To the fall
Crawl to the life you shouldn't know
You should never come this way
To test the hands of fate
You don't belong here

Peel back the skin
Close your eyes
Hell is born
To the abyss, but be warned

You fear what you'll become
My God what have you done?
You don't belong here

But it's all in the way
You touch and you obey
Denial

But it's all in the way
You touch and you obey
Denial

Sever the ties
Trip the wire
Dig your hold
Doubt is alive and you know

You were once led to believe
You were young and so naive
But now no longer
But it's all in the way
You turn your back today

Left to face this alone
Left to die with nothing you can hold
Left to break in the cold
In the void that you made
The moment you let love go

Try to win back your days
You let them all escape your heart
Now that you've come so far
Why did you have to fall so hard?
Look at what you've done
What have you become?

Left to face this alone
Left to die with nothing you can hold
Left to break in the cold
In the void that you made
The moment you let love go
You let love go
You let love go
You let love go




2. ISOLATION

When all is lost to you inside
When all the darkness takes the light
The ritual it has begun
Now you tear away from everyone
Disconnected so alone yeah
Severed ties from all you know

Isolation
Brings you to the end
Until you love again
Isolation
If you could only see
What will come to be?
Yeah!

Justify you waste away
You dare to dream but still you’re too afraid
Now you’re broken and deceived
Lost to live this cruel reality
You’re disconnected so alone
Severed ties from all you know

Isolation
Brings you to the end
Until you love again
Isolation
If you could only see
What will come to be?
Yeah!

Maybe you’ll stand
Maybe you’ll give
And break to find another way
And make things better
Maybe you’ll find
A life you can live
And learn to love along the way
And make things better
And make things better

Isolation
Brings you to the end
Until you love again
Isolation
If you could only see
What will come to be?
Yeah!

Isolation
Brings you to the end
Until you love again
Isolation
If you could only see
What will come to be?




What will come to be?
You’re disconnected so alone




3. GHOST OF DAYS GONE BY

The misery I know
Like a friend that won't let go
Is creeping up on me now once again

So I sing this song tonight
To the ghost that will not die
And somehow it seems to haunt me till the end

Do you feel the same
For what once remained
Yesterday is gone, we can't go back again
Do you ever cry
For the ghost of days gone by?

I remember summer days
We were young and unafraid
With innocence we'd glide beneath the stars

It seems so long ago
Beyond the life that I now know
Before the years would have their way and break my heart

Do you feel the same
For what once remained
Yesterday is gone, we can't go back again
Do you ever cry
For the ghost of days gone by?

And I know it's drawing closer
With each day I fear the end
And I... don't wanna die
Don't wanna die, don't wanna die

I don't wanna die

Do you feel the same
For what once remained
Yesterday is gone, we can't go back again
Do you ever cry for the days gone by
Do they haunt you like a ghost until the end?
Haunt you till the end, until the end
Until the end, until the end




4. ALL HOPE IS GONE

A tireless stream of indifference flows
Through veins 'till the river runs dry
I no longer care, i have all but disposed
Of dreams that i once held inside

Desire is gone after all of these years
The fight has been lost, I concede
The apathy born a long time ago
Has grown to what I can't defeat

I've been here too long
I'm tired and longing for more
How long must I run
To find what I'm looking for?
All hope is gone

The sadness I carry so deep in my heart
For what could have been and might be
Is never forgotten, it's never to far
I'm wasted so worn and so weak

I've been here too long
I'm tired, longing for more
How long must I run
To find what I'm looking for?
All hope is gone

Ive been here too long
I'm tired, longing for more
How long must I run
To find what I'm looking for

I've been here too long
I'm tired, longing for more
All hope is gone
All hope is gone
All hope is gone




5. STILL REMAINS

Cast a line when I saw that you were drowning
Still you turned your back on me
Pulled you from the fire when you were burning
Still you never could believe

So carry on
If you must go your way
Though it breaks my heart
Your free will still remains

Save you from your fall when you were slipping
Still you broke from me to run
So how can you justify the life you’re living?

You must carry on
If you must go your way
Though it breaks my heart
Your free will still remains

You’ll deny it all
You’ll deny me once again
But I’ve seen it all
I know you’ve come to crawl
Back to me before the end

Carry on
If you must go your way
Though it breaks my heart
Your free will still remains

So carry on
If you must go your way
Though it breaks my heart
Your free will still remains
Still remains




6. MAKE IT RIGHT

How many times have you cut
Only to feel the pain?
How many days have you run
Only to crawl?
How many nights did you scream
Only to scream in vain?
How many years till you face
The shame of it all?

Into the fire you fall,
If only you can make it right (Make it right)
Stand up and fight for resolve
If only you can make it right (Make it right)

How many lies did you steal
Just to convince the fool?
How many masks did you wear
Disguises and removes?
How many years till you break
All that keeps breaking you?
How many tears will you waste
While finding the truth?

Into the fire you fall
If only you can make it right (Make it right)
Stand up and fight for resolve
If only you can make it right (Make it right)

Into the fire you fall
If only you can make it right (Make it right)
Stand up and fight for resolve
If only you can make it right (Make it right)

There comes a time
When one must decide
The life they are living is far from true
Lost and deceived
Nothing to believe
I know I have so much I've yet to prove

Into the fire you fall
If only you can make it right (Make it right)
Stand up and fight for resolve
If only you can make it right (Make it right)

Into the fire you fall
If only you can make it right (Make it right)
Stand up and fight for resolve
If only you can make it right (Make it right)




7. WONDERFUL LIFE

Close your eyes,
And just hear me sing,
One last long goodbye,
One last song before you spread your wings.

There's so much left to say,
Before this moment slips away

What a wonderful life,
For as long as you've been at my side,
And I want you to know,
I loved you so

The cold night calls,
And the tears fall like rain,
It's so hard letting go,
Of the one thing I'll never replace

And soon you will be gone,
But these words, they will live on

What a wonderful life,
For as long as you've been at my side,
And I want you to know,
I'll miss you so,
And though our days come to an end,
No, I'll never love like this again,
What a wonderful life my friend

And all that I am,
You let me be,
I will remember you,
For all that you've done,
And given to me

Love will remain,
This I concede,
Now and forevermore
Because of you,
Now I believe
I believe

What a wonderful life,
For as long as you've been at my side,
And I want you to know,
I've loved you so

What a wonderful life,
For as long as you've been at my side,
And I want you to know,
I'll miss you so,
And though our days come to an end,
No, I'll never love like this again,
What a wonderful life
A wonderful life
What a wonderful life
What a wonderful life

And with one last embrace
As the tears fall like rain
You're gone
And with one last goodbye,
As you fade out tonight
You're gone.




8. I KNOW IT HURTS

And you say this ain't living
You say you can't go on
They only take as your giving
And now your hope is all but gone

Though you lost your way (Now is not forever)
But I know your pain

We all fall sometimes you're not the first
But I know it hurts, yeah I know it hurts
In the end you'll find what you deserve
Still I know it hurts, yeah I know it hurts

And the tide's only rising
The storm is on its way, yeah
But you can't keep on fighting
So battleworn and so afraid
Though it's sad and wrong,
I hope you will remember
That must carry on

We all fall sometimes you're not the first
But I know it hurts, yeah I know it hurts
In the end you'll find what you deserve
Still I know it hurts, yeah I know it hurts

There's still tomorrow, hold on, hold on
There's still tomorrow, just wait, just wait
There's still tomorrow, hold on, hold on

We all fall sometimes you're not the first
But I know it hurts, yeah I know it hurts
In the end you'll find what you deserve
Still I know it hurts, yeah I know it hurts




9. SHOW ME A SIGHN

A trail of tears beyond redemption
Just a word and nothing more no more
I must reveal I am falling
To the dark I now am born

So if you hear this cry
Show me a sign give me meaning
Lead me to life let me know
Why all the lies I’m believing
Have lead me so far
Far from home

Cutting anguish not forgotten
Eternal life will not be mine tonight
But if I wake to find Perdition
This I know the fault is mine
This I know the fault is mine

So if you hear this cry
Show me a sign give me meaning
Lead me to life let me know
Why all the lies I’m believing
Have lead me so far
Far from home

And the fire inside is gone
And all that I once had is lost
To the darkness I am born

[spoken]
A trail of tears beyond redemption
Just a word and nothing more
I must reveal that I'm falling
To the dark I now am born

Show me a sign give me meaning
Lead me to life let me know
Why all the lies I’m believing
Have lead me so far far from home

Ohhhh…




10. FALLOUT

Oooooo.
Another rebel
Runs against the grain
A loner is born
He's filled with anguish
Deep within he’s dying every day
To find his way

He is lost
So consumed

Can you feel him?
Somewhere in the fallout
He is someone just like you
Who’s lost to find the truth
Can you hear him from afar he cries out
For the answer to be shown
As he dares to walk the Fallout on his own

So frustrated
He walks the line alone
Courage sets him apart
He is so faithless
All he once embraced he now disowns
He let it go

All the while
He still waits

Can you feel him?
Somewhere in the fallout
He is someone just like you
Who’s lost to find the truth
Can you hear him from afar he cries out
For the answer to be shown
As he dares to walk the Fallout on his own

Left behind he’s walking
Burning still he tries
To unearth the meaning to this life
Cast aside he's weary
Bleeding to behold
Disconnected still he fights
For truth alone

Can you feel him?
Somewhere in the fallout
He is someone just like you
Who’s lost to find the truth
Can you hear him from afar he cries out
For the answer to be shown
As he dares to walk the Fallout on his own




11. BREATHE AGAIN

Ahhhhh...
I have played the part
I have all but lost my soul
And I have sacrificed
For what it’s worth I just don’t know
In the silence of the heart
There is a distant call
Yeah...
That beckons me to stand apart.

So I set out on my own
Just to breathe again
Touch the light that calls me home
Just to reach the end
Where I’m free to breathe again.

Ohhh...
Through the suffering
Through the misery and pain
Never anything
But the will to see the day
Yeahh...
When the promise might be born
Light a spark within
Yeahh...
Cause I can’t take it anymore.

So I set out on my own
Just to breathe again
Touch the light that calls me home
Just to reach the end
Well I’m free to breathe again.

Well I am free to roam
And set out on my own
To rise above the hands that try to hold me down
Before the end
I know I’ll breathe again to find my way

So I set out on my own
Just to breathe again
Touch the light that calls me home
Just to reach the end
I’m leaving today... [x3]




12. COEUR D'ALENE

When all the lights have faded
The encore's come and gone
And I can't take this no more

Well I can't keep pretending
I just can't play the part
I need the solace of her shore
I need the solace of her shore

Coeur d'Alene is calling out
And it won't be long
Coeur d'Alene I'm coming now
Where I still belong

I look into the mirror
I don't know who I am
A life so torn apart

I still long for the simple
I'm just a common man
Left with this aching heart

Coeur d'Alene is calling out
And it won't be long
Coeur d'Alene I'm coming now
Where I still belong

Safe at last
In your arms
I'm safe at last
In your arms

Coeur d'Alene is calling out
Where the waters calm
Coeur d'Alene I'm coming now
And it won't be long




13. LIFE MUST GO ON

Sitting alone
In the cold of the night
Trying to find
What you need to survive
So afraid
That you can't go on

Left in the silence
That tears at your heart
It only reminds you how
Broken you are
You lost your way
But hope is not gone

'Cause the sun always sets
The moon always falls
It feels like the end
Just pay no mind at all
And keep on rolling
Rolling
Life must go on

Do you remember
And long for the past?
When love was eternal
And joy seemed to last
Yesterday
Forever is gone

'Cause the sun always sets
The moon always falls
It feels like the end
Just pay no mind at all
And keep on rolling
Rolling
Life must go on
It must go on

We have our misfortunes
The darkest of days
But we must endure and keep strong
Just look to the morning
The promise awaits
And know that this life must go on

And the sun always sets
The moon always falls
It feels like the end
Just pay no mind at all
And keep on rolling
Rolling
Life must go on

And the sun always sets
The moon always falls
It feels like the end
Just pay no mind at all
And keep on rolling
Keep on rolling
Life must go on
It must go on

Life must go on
Life must go on
When you're feeling alright
So you keep rolling on
Keep rolling on
With your heart you'll be safe (?)
Life must go on
Life must go on
So you keep rolling on
Keep rolling on




14. WORDS DARKER THAN THEIR WINGS

You say you are right
I hope that I'm wrong
I know that you've tried
But still it is gone

Just don't you lose hope
I swear I'd never dreamed that we're alone
Now don't you let go
I swear I still believe though I don't know

Remember the years
I still walked tall
Now I only fear
Now I only crawl

How could I be wrong?
I hope there comes a day your fear is gone
How could we be lost?
Lost just cease to be not carry on

Into the light may you fall
Into the light may you follow
Into the light may you know
Truth alone

Into the light may you fall
Into the light may you follow
Into the light may you know
Truth alone
Truth alone

You can love someone
Go
Never to ask why
Or to fear again
Go
Find your peace tonight
Go
Set out towards the sun
Let the new begin
Go
Soon your day will come
Day will come

Into the light may you fall
Into the light may you follow
Into the light may you know
Truth alone

Into the light may you fall
Into the light may you follow
Into the light may you know
Truth alone
Truth alone

Truth alone
Truth alone




15. ZERO

Now there is a light in the dark some will say
There is a grace up high
There is a beauty that some can behold
Not I
Not I
There is a power that’s felt from the shore
There is a force that won’t break
But all of these things to me are no more
I’ve changed
I’ve changed

What in the hell have you done?
Cast aside all that you love
The sorrows you'll never outrun

Zero
Nothing for you is ever good enough
Zero
Nothing makes you whole

How many times have you felt all alone?
How many tears have you cried?
Called out in vain for a god to behold
Inside
Inside
How many fires you've let die in your heart?
How many storms must you face?
Left out to fight for yourself in the cold
No faith
No faith

So nothing to lean on this time
Nothing is left to decide
All that you’ve known you'll deny

Zero
Nothing for you is ever good enough
Zero
Nothing makes you whole
Zero
Nothing for you is ever good enough
Zero
Nothing makes you whole

Burn out
Surrender
You can take no more

And just cry out
Surrender
Your faith no more

What in the hell have you done?
Cast aside all that you love
The sorrows you'll never outrun
Just look what you have become

Zero
Nothing for you is ever good enough
Zero
Nothing makes you whole
Zero
Nothing for you is ever good enough
Zero
Nothing makes you whole




16. HOME

Hope [echos]
The only thing that we have left to hold [echos]
In a world gone mad there's nowhere left to go [echos]
Where nothing lasts there's permanence I know

Is there something I can say?
To bring back what once remained?
Where is all that we let go?
Where is hope?

Doubt [echos]
From inside I hear it calling out [echos]
Tearing at the truth that must be found [echos]
In the end it only brings me down

Is there something I can say?
To bring back what once remained?
Where is all that we let go?
Where is hope?

If you need a reason
A reason tonight
To cast every doubt
From your heart
From your mind
Look to tomorrow
And maybe you'll find
Something more

Is there something I can say
To bring back what once remained?
Where is all that we let go?
Where is hope?
