Lyrics

1. BEGINNING OF THE END

Please take me back to the start
Where we still hold this close to our hearts
I won’t let it tear us apart

Please take me back to the times
Where you can see the life in my eyes
And you knew that my love will never die

My love will never die

Please take me back to the times
Where you can see the life in my eyes
And you knew that my love will never die




2. TO THE WOLVES

Give us light

These are the demons we've created
They're selling us lies, heartache and hatred
It's time to sever the ties
And feed the raging fires
Because in the dark they'll give us light

Substance isn't an option they'll grace us with (x2)

A sincere word has never left your head
With sheep at your feet the stage is set
Your words could bring them life
But you'll leave them for dead

These are the paths that we have taken
If you think they're selling us truths, you're gravely mistaken
An aversion that never faded
It just grows to becomes so jaded
They are no better than us

Substance isn't an option they'll grace us with

A sincere word has never left your head
With sheep at your feet the stage is set
But you don't have a single heartfelt line to say

Oh
Your words could bring them life again
But you'll leave them for dead

You left us for dead

It's time we leave them behind
No need for goodbyes




3. BRIGHT ENOUGH

Could nights and colder hearts
We've been sinking from the start
Our hands seldom breach the surface
Break my chest I need to breathe
It's getting harder to believe
Why won't anybody help us

I won't give up on you
Cause your eyes are bright enough to see this through [2x]

I can't take it anymore

So please won't you sing me to sleep
I never want to wake up
I never want to feel like it's just a dream

Won't you sing me to sleep
I never want to wake up
I never want to feel like it's just a dream

Give me a pen and I'll write until my fingers start to bleed
Give me a chance and I'll try to make the world see what you see

I won't give up on you
And your eyes are bright enough to see this through (x2)

I can't take it anymore
Never again will it be like it was before
Broken hands, your bones on show
Who could ever blame you for letting go

Broken hands, your bones on show
Who could ever blame you for letting go
Please just hold on

So please won't you sing me to sleep
I never want to wake up
I never want to feel like it's just a dream

Won't you sing me to sleep
I never want to wake up
I never want to feel like it's just a dream




4. MEILOR

I kept waiting for the sun to rise
With the hope that nothing had changed through the night
And I'm still waiting for the tide to die
To be swept away and out of sight

Am I too far gone now
Too far to turn this around (turn this around)

My heart sways like the seasons change
So you can't help me sleep for days
Until you whisper, open your eyes and take a deep breath
It'll be alright

You've been there from the beginning
And I know you'll see this through

Am I too far gone now
Too far to turn this around (turn this around)
Oh

I kept waiting for the sun to rise
With the hope that nothing had changed through the night
And I'm still waiting for the tide to die
To be swept away and out of sight

Will I ever find my way




5. THIRTY ONE & SEVENS

I followed my heart
And it lead me out to sea
Where the depths were accepting
And my reflection could be seen

Staring out at the edge of the world
You bring me clarity
And give me a sense of purpose
But I remember when you'd say

Nothing can last forever (x2)

Permanence was the last thing on my mind as
I reached out for your hand
All I wanted was the chance to say everything
You deserved to hear

What if I told you, you were the only one
To get inside my heart and raise my head toward the sun and
What if I told you, that you meant more to me
Than the stars on the horizon if I were lost at sea

You gave me a place to rest my head
And get it all off my chest
To sit and watch 'The Days of Our Lives'
So young and so bright eyed

Staring out at the edge of the world
You bring me clarity
And give me a sense of purpose
But I remember when you'd say

Out of sight but never out of mind
All of the words I'll never find [2x]

What if I told you, you were the only one
To get inside my heart and raise my head toward the sun and
What if I told you, that you meant more to me
Than the stars on the horizon if I were lost at sea

What if I told you, you were the only one
(You were the only one)
What if I told you, that you meant more to me




6. CALVERT STREET (FT. BJÖRN STRID OF SOILWORK)

My heart in your hands
If I had of known it would not come to this
We've grown and its not easy to let go
We fall apart my sentiment begins to distort

My hollow heart it still beats for you.
Dragged through the dirt after all that we've been through

Your head in your hands
You should have known
I could never meet your demands
We fell apart
My sentiment began to distort

My hollow heart it still beats for you
Dragged through the dirt after all that we've been through

This wasn't meant for us
There was never a point to be lost
In one another we're left to discover
That our paths should have never crossed

I walk alone, endlessly
In time with the sound of sympathy
I walk alone, endlessly
In time with the sound of sympathy

Fuck it I'm letting go
I'm letting go

This wasn't meant for us,
There was never a point to be lost
In one another we're left to discover
That our paths should have never crossed

I walk alone, endlessly
In time with the sound of sympathy




7. KJÆRLIGHET

Across the ocean
These flames can't provide me with the warmth that I desire

The fire I need is a glimpse on the horizon
A beacon of hope, I'm coming home

Feels like I'm in another world (in another world)
If I walk too quickly I can almost fly
Cascading, enveloped, I can't escape this
Luminescence everywhere, light up the darkness

You are the cause of this sickness
And the cure for this disease
Bathe me in gold so that I may breathe again

You are the cause of this sickness
And the cure for this disease

I once was sun-kissed, now I lay frozen here
But the fire inside burns bright, adrenaline, oxycontin
Give me the strength to
Move heaven and earth
Realign us back in phase
I'll never leave again

You are the cause of this sickness
And the cure for this disease
Bathe me in gold so that I may breathe again




8. THE BEATEN PATH

In this isolation I...
To silence this...
And drown the world in apathy
And your narcissistic disease
This plague that you escape
...

Every thought is...
...death (x2)

So burn the bridge, tear us apart
Isolation, insulate my heart
So burn the bridge, tear us apart
Isolation, insulate my heart
Fuck

Dilate this void between us
And flood it with an ocean of disgust
No one...
Just...an apathetic...
Your every thought is...
...death

So burn the bridge, tear us apart
Isolation, insulate my heart
So burn the bridge, tear us apart
Isolation, insulate my heart

Isolation, insulate my heart




9. BILLIONS

(Instrumental)




10. NIGHTMARES

With all that you've done
Would you ever give thought to the life that was slaughtered
Put you're just killing for
Like they...??...on your daughter

How can we be so heartless
They're beaten bloody and lifeless
We will be the voice

The voice for the voiceless
And give hope, to all the helpless
How can we be so...how can we be...be so heartless
They're beaten bloody...bloody and lifeless
We'll be the voice...voice for the voiceless
And give hope...hope for the helpless

Your body is your graveyard
And it's filled
Unbound the innocence
They're weren't ready to be buried yet

But this is the world we're living in
Murder is the cure, who's cashing in

We will be the voice
The voice for the voiceless
And give hope, to all the helpless
How can we be so...how can we be...be so heartless
They're beaten bloody...bloody and lifeless
We'll be the voice...voice for the voiceless
And give hope...hope to the helpless

How can you be so fucking heartless (x2)




11. NO ONE WILL SAVE US (FT. JONATHAN VIGIL OF THE GHOST INSIDE)

When the world comes crashing down
Will you search the sky for safety
You can hope it's rain
And this is the sound of the end
I don't know what will save me

As our cries go unanswered
Will your hate get you past it

When your world comes crashing down
Do you look to tradition
Don't believe in flesh and blood
And live a life in fear of these visions

You're living in the shadows
Cast my doubt, believe in yourself (believe in yourself)

If you're cries go unanswered
Will your hate get you past it

Oh dear god, these are the darkest nights
How can we open their eyes
Oh dear god, this is my constant plight
When will they open their eyes
When will they open their eyes

Every word is a waste of breath
Every word falls on ears that are that are deaf

You're living in the shadows
Cast my doubt, believe in yourself
Stop living in the shadows
Free your mind and believe in yourself

Oh dear god, these are the darkest nights
How can we open their eyes
Oh dear god, these are the darkest nights
How can we open their eyes
Oh dear god, this is my constant plight
How can we open their...when will they open their eyes




12. MEMENTO VIVERE

These scars make me who I am
A weary heart just waiting for the end
We're all holding on to this lament
And embraced by arms of resentment
We'll make the most of the warmth they emit
Close my eyes, don't leave me here

This is for those who are so lost, they barely know themselves
For the ones buried beneath hopelessness

Guidance is given by your hands
You offered hope and raised me from the dead
Recreant, be brave and face your fears you said
Beloved I know you'll never let me fall again
I'll hold on, I've found safety here

This is for those who are so lost, they barely know themselves
For the ones buried beneath hopelessness
This is for those who are so frail, from bearing the weight of the world
For the ones plagued by lowliness and a heavy heart
Fuck

It's time we made our way back home
My hope remains unbroken
It's time we made our way back home

Never stop believing
Home is forever
A beating heart

This is for those who are so lost, they barely know themselves
For the ones buried beneath hopelessness
This is for those who are so frail, from bearing the weight of the world
Upon their shoulders
Breathe, you're home now, it's over




13. SPARROWHAWK

Always waking up to...
This city is cold and I am drained
I know my heart will stay
...
Burning bright lighting the way (lighting the way)

Everytime...this is the end
But the gap between us grows...
I'll sink again

If I could find a way, we wouldn't stay (we wouldn't stay)
We would be right here by my side
Close my eyes, taking me in
Locked in the...of your heart

I cannot give into the fact, that you're miles away
You're the...
I wish I could say....again

...falling apart
...
Carry me into the night
It's hard to hear your heart beat through the phone tonight
I need you to keep me here in sight (keep me in sight)

If I could find a way, we wouldn't stay (we wouldn't stay)
We would be right here by my side
Close my eyes, taking me in
Locked in the...of your heart

Everytime I...this is the end
But the gap between us grows...
I'll sink again

Swept away by tide of lonliness
Under...regret (x2)

If I could find a way, we wouldn't stay (we wouldn't stay)
We would be right here by my side

Everytime I...this is the end (this is the end)
But the gap between us grows...

Fuck it...again




14. BREVITY

Take your bow (x4)

Set yourself free
Set aside your differences and heal
Mend the holes in your heart, teach us how to feel
We're so fucking hopeless
We're so fucking hopeless

That's all they said over and over again
We don't think we are invincible
Scared of failure
You're obsessed with the world you love so dear

Brevity
What are we living for
You will find me with my back against the wall...
With my back against the wall

Live your life, see the world
What are you so afraid of

That's all they said over and over again
We don't think we are invincible
Scared of failure
You're obsessed with the world you love so dear

Brevity
What are we living for
You will find me with my back against the wall...with my back against the wall

My eyes are so clear
I can finally see the world for what it really is
Rip the heart from the bone
You will live out your days on your knees
You'll never shed a tear
