Endangered Species tracks

Lyrics


1. Medicate

I've been lying awake at night
I've been hoping that I'm alright
I've been winding myself too tight
Wondering if I will sleep tonight
Never thought things would get like this
Always hoping that they'd work out
Still ingesting the wrong amount
Now I seem to be filled with doubt

I cannot stop this ride
I'm growing cold inside
I shouldn't let it slide
Will sickness be mine

This should not be my weight to bear
Go on acting like I don't care
Stop this high-I wouldn't dare
I have earned and deserve my share
Things like this happen every day
While im in there I feel okay
But you say I should get away
Let me go just for one more day

[Chorus x2]

Ive got to medicate myself,
Im not concerned about my health
It covers up what I've been dealt, It seems the only way
I've got to medicate myself, i'ts been the only thing that helped
Must cover up what I have felt, it seems the only way

[Chorus x2]

Sickness is mine, sickness is mine, sickness is mine




2. Endangered Species

I try to simplify, these thoughts that plague our minds
What is this mood we're in, we live like saints with sin
How much to dignify, the facts that come to light
We've lost the will to fight

At the top of the food chain we arrive (we arrive)
Are we destined to grow old
Are we really the right strain to survive (to survive)
We've got to redeem our souls, souls

Unable to comply, so eager to defy
The risk when you apply, it hurts when loved ones die
Where is the moment when, existence will depend
The test of now and then

[Chorus x1]

(constant ending, no real mending)
If we keep on living like we are
There isnt a chance that we'll get very far
So much waster, so much lost
Its out job to alter the terrible cost

[Chorus x1]

We are the endangered species
We're running out of time....[repeat]




3. Recognize

Well ive had enough
Of these selfish crimes
I hurt myself again
Not knowing why
It seems so easy
Each and every time
And avoid the truth i think id rather just go blind

Then everything erupts
My life has come unglued
And the ties that bind have left me
What am i to do?

Cant seem to recognize
That stare behing those eyes
Who is this man i see?
Whos looking back at me?
Cant focus through the grey
And i am fading into nothing
The reflection must get clearer

I think im cracking up
Like ive lost my mind
I hurt myself again
Still dont know why
I end up the same way
Each and every time
I cant avoid the truth
Theres just nowhere to run and hide

Cant seem to recognize
That stare behing those eyes
Who is this man i see?
Whos looking back at me?
Cant focus through the grey
And i am fading into nothing
The reflection must get clearer than it appears to be right now

There must be somone i can see....
THERES GOTTA BE SOMETHING FOR ME
SHOW IT NOW, LET IT GO FREE
I KNOW ITS THERE WAITING ON ME
LET IT OUT, LET IT GO FREE

Cant seem to recognize
That stare behing those eyes
Who is this man i see?
Whos looking back at me?
Cant focus through the grey
And i am fading into nothing
The reflection must get clearer




4. Wait For Me

All these miles, haunting questions linger in my mind.
And all the while, making bad decisions out of line.
Still I've tried, to let go of the danger in my life.
It's alright, when that's the only thing I've left behind.
And there's still time...

Wait for me. There's so much more of life for us to see.
You must believe, it's not because of you I've had to leave.
Wait for me. I only hope that you'll remember me.

At this time, I'm counting all the reasons I should stay.
Bottom line. I'm missing all the things I gave away.
I remind, and see your face every single day.
Still I'm blind. I wish that there was something I could say
To make things right...

Wait for me. There's so much more of life for us to see.
You must believe, it's not because of you I've had to leave.
Wait for me. I only hope that you'll remember me.

Just hold on a little bit longer.
Thoughts and memories will be enough
My need for you is only growing stronger.
I know you don't understand it much
But it doesn't mean I have to care about you any less
It doesn't have a thing to do with that.
There's still so many questions that are gonna' be addressed
I'm sorry that it had to be like this.
But there's still time to make things right.

Wait for me. There's so much more of life for us to see.
You must believe, it's not because of you I've had to leave.
Wait for me. I only hope that you'll remember me.




5. Many Faces

Will it take some time, to release the inner apathy
Enabled inside, and it looks like you're the enemy

Things are never what they seem, can't explain the reasons why
The illusions that we see, the many faces of our lives
When you find it hard to breathe, never keep it all inside
Which one should I be, the many faces of our lives

Irrelevant minds, you become a little more serious
Still passing me by, you should not be, rightly, dear to us
[Chorus x1]

If you feel that the timing is all wrong
Here's the key to remove yourself from harm
Maybe then you will live again, live again

[Chorus x1]

I'm afraid we're in too deep, things are never what they seem
[repeat]
I'm afraid we're just too deep to come out okay
I'm afraid we're just too deep to come out okay
Now




6. All The Worst

How do we deal with this?
How do we clean up all this mess?
Will there be a future for the latest generation?
Running around, believing the sound,
Is anything loud enough for us to decipher
Making a stand, extending our hand, we must understand
It's the least we can offer those less fortunate than us

[chorus x2]
There's something about this place
It brings out all the worst
Our history's been disgraced
Who will destroy who first?

I'm balling up my fists
Waiting here defenseless isn't pacifist
It's ignorant, and cannot be allowed
Mybe it's here or maybe it's there,
We're never aware of just how safe we are
Could it be us or could it be them, unable to trust
The information that we need

[chorus x2]

This time, will we all, live on? [background vocal]
If hurting still exists
Make it go away
The problems that are plaguing you and I the same

This time, will we all, live on? [background vocal]
Causing it to stay
Counting down the days
It's eating at the very core of us

[chorus x2]

There's something wrong with this place




7. You've Changed

We've been through this before......

Compromise
With me agree right now
Useless cries
I'm telling you just how
Paralyzed
There is nothing I can do
I realize
I liked the other you.

You've changed
Everything about you is strange
Look at yourself, you've changed
With the facts in your face
It's causing conflict

You've changed
Everything about you is strange
Look at yourself, you've changed
With the facts in your face
It's causing conflict

Hypnotized
By all your complex games
Sacrifice
My own opinions change
Justify
Just why to stay with you
I can't see why
Nothing else for me to do
It makes no sense
Putting ourselves through all this
At my expense
Don't I deserve much less
It's way past time
To right the wrong we're in
The bottom line
No way that we can win

You've changed
Everything about you is strange
Look at yourself, you've changed
With the facts in your face
It's causing conflict

You've changed
Everything about you is strange
Look at yourself, you've changed
With the facts in your face
It's causing conflict

You brought it all, all on yourself, you're strange to me
[background vocal]
You brought on all this mess
My needs were not addressed
You caused so much distress
This much you must admit

You brought it all, all on yourself, you're strange to me
[background vocal]
You brought on all this mess
My needs were not addressed
You caused so much distress
This much you must admit

You've changed
Everything about you is strange
Look at yourself, you've changed
With the facts in your face
It's causing conflict

You've changed
Everything about you is strange
Look at yourself, you've changed
With the facts in your face
It's causing conflict

I'm not the one who changed

I'm not the one who changed




8. Turn The Tables

Full assistance to those who bear it all
Unable to fall, waiting patiently
Backs against the wall
Not allowing the weak to dictate, when it's our turn to recover

[chorus]
If your experiences don't compare, just turn the tables
And stop acting like you really care, if you're not stable

Full resistance to those who care at all
Directing the call, it's consuming us
Backs against the wall
Convincing the meek to dictate all their actions on command
and eviction to those who swear it all
Fit to befall the false memory
Facts begin to stall
Permitting the bleak existance, this is our time to discover

[chorus x2]

There will come a time for us to change things
And I will never strike at you again
I will try to learn to make amends
You will never lesson who I am
Don't be sheltered show me where you've been
Show me where you've been

[chorus x2]
(just turn the tables) [repeat]

Becoming yourself now, achieving what you allow
Don't take it out on us all
Becoming yourself now, achieving what you allow




9. Worlds Divide

Lost in these times
Its hard to make up our minds
This is the reason
We're convicted for our crimes

So we wait
Scars on our face
They show the importance
Of finding a way to leave this place

But then we're left with
Nothing substantial to hold
And I'm afraid that
Our stories will never be told

Some people carry on
Some just stay right where they are
Our worlds divide the sight
I'd rather move along
Knowledge is not very far
Our worlds divide the sight

When innocence dies
It tends to shake up your life
Let it consume you
And then leave it all behind

I need escape
From the choices we made
And the feelings of longing
That are standing in our way

Don't give up on hope...
DON'T GIVE UP ON HOPE...

Don't give because its hope that binds us
Pain that guides us
Who do we trust when those things remind us
Its hope that guides us
Pain that binds us
Who do we trust when they're not behind us?




10. Decide

Doesn't it make you nervous, at least you could have tried
And if it doesn't disturb us, couldn't we just sit by
And make a pact to ignore it, all of our secret needs
Becoming connected further, giving a life to feed on

[chorus]
You let them decide, the course of my life
And you just stood by, you threw me aside

Isn't it overwhelming, living a lie inside
Causing so many problems, hoping to just get by
When will it all be over, what would I have you say
But you won't have to trouble yourself for me that way

[chorus]

Didn't mean to complicate tomorrow
Didn't mean to make you feel that way
Didn't come to irritate your morals
But then you push me far away
Why did you push me far away
I just can't see why you neglected to try
To move on with our lives, when we shared the goodbye

You let them decide, the course of my life
We shared the goodbye, and you threw me aside
You'll never make that choice again, no not again
Will you affect my life again [repeat]




11. Final Cry

Forging a difference
We summon existance
This distance is not what it seems
Painstaking process
It pulls at our instincts
We're living outside of our means
So long, I've hoped
To be strong
Down-sloped

[pre-chorus]
And the damage will commence
The beginning of the end
And the damage will commence

[chorus]
All these occurances bring me to life
All that I've sacrificed makes it seem right
Don't underestimate how hard I'll try
This is our final cry

Placing a marker on what I must offer
It's slowly becoming unfair
Will I recover from being pulled under
I'm desperate and gasping for air
So long, I've hoped
To be strong
Down-sloped

This is not anything that came from me
You have embedded it within my seed
All of my memories are blending in
Now the real damage will begin

[pre-chorus]

[chorus]

This is our final cry [repeat]
It's the beginning of the end

[chorus]

This is our final cry [repeat]




12. Not Enough

Wake up your life
You may never get the chance to make things right
Rather than lie
Take a moment to reflect on what's gone by
It's a mistake
There's no reason I should be so full of guilt
Significant break
So you severed all the ties that we have built

All I know, even though
Tried to give you what was left of me
But it was not enough
Didn't think about the rest of me
That it was not enough
Tried my hardest with the best of me
But it was not enough
Tried to give you what was left of me
But it was not enough

All mixed up inside
And it's easy to forget what we should be
It's useless to hide
I can see to the heart of your insecurity
All of this time
Blaming others for the cause of what we've lost
Nothing sublime
I must overcome no matter what the cost

[Chorus x1]

Please give back what s not yours to have
It's the only thing that I've got left
Never was enough to satisfy
And I'm left empty

[Chorus x1]

Tried to give you what was left of me
But it was not enough
Didn't think about the rest of me
That it was not enough
Tried my hardest with the best of me
But it was not enough
