1. PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

You all have something to say or something to ask
I don't live in a cage, it's none of your...
You all have something to say or something to ask
I don't live in a cage, it's none of your business
it's none of your business

Gonna say this clear so you can get it straight
You don't know a thing about me
Who I am from what I read, oh, I sound so sickening
Your attempts to bring me down, fuel my fire and build my sound
I can't believe all the things I hear

You all have something to say about me
How can you stop and listen, when all you do is talk ?
You all have something you want to take from me
And I can't hold my tongue anymore

Shut up

You all have something that you want to say to me
You all have something to ask
It's none of your business
It's none of your business

I'm well aware I did three days alone in a cell
A simple easy price to pay for something that I felt
Towards someone so deserving, I hate those who prey on the weak
If asked to do it all again, I would if needed be

All of these people talking about my story
As if they've lived it before
All of these people they don't even know me
But I love how you think

You know me better than I know myself
You know me better than myself
Myself
Myself

You all have something to say or something to ask
I don't live in a cage, it's none of your business
It's none of your business

All of these people
talking about my story
Just keep talking
Just keep talking
It's none of your business

You all have something to say about me
You all have something to ask
It's none of your business

You all have something to say about me
You all have something to ask
It's none of your business




2. FEELS LIKE FOREVER

Did you ever contemplate when all was lost you hesitate and nothing seems the same ?
Have you ever hid your face, in such disgrace, decisions made, a picture with no frame ?

Can you hold on one more day ?

Say you're okay
I'm afraid that tomorrow is just too far away
Fight the pain
It just feels like forever is crashing down on me
Down on me
Me
Me

Rain will fall, wash all the pain, it shields the soul, you turn the page to face another day
Let me know that you will wait and I will pay for my mistakes to feel the sun again

Can you hold on ?

Say you're okay
I'm afraid that tomorrow is just too far away
Fight the pain
It just feels like forever is crashing down on me

Don't let go
Time will heal
Just don't let go
(Don't let go
Don't let go)
One day we can try to start again

Say you're okay
I'm afraid that tomorrow is just too far away
Fight the pain
It just feels like forever
Forever
It just feels like forever is crashing down on me
Down on me
Me
Me
Down on me




3. BONES EXPOSED

It's like loving a lion that cannot be tamed
I snap at the thought or the sound of your name
Pulling teeth from my stomach you've been eaten alive
My blood fills your lungs
My soul, your inside

My feet they stand on ashes
From the fires that you've made
Burning bridges
Just to save your face

If I say I wouldn't be hostile
(Hostile)
Could you say you would do the same ?
(Would do the same)
If we're all made just a little bit broken
(Broken)
Tell me who is to blame ?
Tell me who is to blame ?

I'm sensing a feeling picking wounds of regret
That left alone there's no scarring, I'll dig & I'll dig
Scratching & itching, I'll keep biting my lip
From this pain that I'm feeling
Picking wounds of regret

A cut cannot heal
Unless you leave it alone
I'll open mine daily
Leaving bones exposed

Exposed

If I say I wouldn't be hostile
(Hostile)
Could you say you would do the same ?
(Would do the same)
If we're all made just a little bit broken
(Broken)
Tell me who is to blame ?
Tell me who is to blame ?

To blame

Standing on ashes from the fires you've made
Burning your bridges just to save your face

Wounds of regret

If I say I wouldn't be hostile
Could you say you would do the same ?
If we're all made just a little bit broken
Tell me who is to blame ?
Tell me who is to blame ?
To blame

We're broken, imperfect
We were all made the same
We're broken...
We're broken, imperfect
We are all to blame




4. WOULD YOU STILL BE THERE ?

If I could find the words
If I could shake the world
If I could turn back time
Would you still be there ?

I can't stop thinking about the way
I left you sinking with no escape
Now there's no lifeline, no way to save
But maybe next time, I won't throw it all away

I ask myself everyday…

If I could find the words
If I could shake the world
If I could turn back time
Would you still be there ?
(Be there)
If I could find the words to say
If I could shake the world to break you down
Then would you still be there ?
(Be there)

Would you still be there ?
Would you still be there ?

Dislocated, I lie awake
Suffocating in my mistakes
I lost my halo when I fell from grace
But maybe next time, I won't throw it all away

I ask myself everyday...

If I could find the words
If I could shake the world
If I could turn back time
Would you still be there ?
(Be there)
If I could find the words to say
If I could shake the world to break you down
Then would you still be there ?

There's no dancing around it
I crawl into the fire then fan the flames
And I can't stand it
(And I can't stand it)
But I don't have the strength to burn the page

If I could find the words
If I could shake the world
If I could turn back time
Would you still be there ?
(Be there)

If I could find the words
(To say)
If I could shake the world
(To break)
If I could turn back time
Would you still be there ?
(Be there)
If I could find the words to say,
If I could shake the world to break you down
Then would you still be there ?

Would you still be there ?




5. GLASS HEARTS

Fuck

These are the hardest four years of my life
They walk right by me heads turned with closed eyes
They don't even see me
At night in my house, I'm still all alone
This is not a home
They don't even see me

The scars on my body, they don't even bleed
I never do this for me
The scars on my body, they don't even bleed
I only do this for you to see

How am I supposed to
See through your eyes
(Your eyes)
When you never saw the stars
Were falling at your feet ?

Is it a song ? Is that what they need ?
For so long, I've tried to get them to hear me
Picking and stabbing, their words feel like knives
Tearing and ripping, the seams of my life
I've tried to convince them
Their words hurt like stones
I just wish they'd just leave me alone

I am on my knees
I need you to hear to me
I am on my knees
Hear me, please

How am I supposed to
To hear what you hear
When you never heard the sound of
Our glass hearts breaking
With every tick of
The clock when you are gone ?

(How am I supposed to
See through your eyes ?)

I know what you've been through
This Hell was my life
You have to keep pushing
I've seen through your eyes
Your days are like pages
The chapters unread
You have to keep turning
Your book has no end




6. ANOTHER YOU

White walls
(Filled with nothing)
But nervous paces
(All around I see)
Something's off
(Inside of myself)
I see it in their faces

Say anything, say anything
Say anything that can make this all okay
Take it away, take it away
Take away all of this emptiness I feel
'Cause I will never find another you

Another you
Another you

I still hear you in this house
(Whispering)
I still feel you in my bones
(In these veins)
And like the portraits in the halls
(Can't help but think)
I wish you were staring back at me
(But you're gone)

Say anything, say anything
Say anything that can make this all okay
Take it away, take it away
Take away all of this emptiness I feel
'Cause I will never find another…
(I may never find myself)
I will never find another you

So I'll carry you with me
In my dreams, my memory
So I'll carry you with me
(You'll always be with me)
In my dreams, my memory
So I'll carry you with me
You'll always be my memory

Say anything, say anything
Say anything that can make this all okay
Take it away, take it away
Take away all of this emptiness I feel
'Cause I will never find another…
(I may never find myself)
I will never find another you




7. BREAK FREE

Break free

Through every bone I break
Through every word you say
You're just another enemy

(Right now)
Get away from me
(You won't)
Get the best of me
(I can't)
Stop or slow down
I never have and I never will

I never will…

You won't break me
(Or silence this heartbeat
Your words, they mean nothing)
I will break free
(From the walls that surround me
I'm sick of this feeling)
I will break free from you

You're just a cloud of smoke
Another empty soul
You're just a snake in my way
You're just a cloud of smoke
Another empty soul
I see it in your face
You're just a snake in my way

(Right now)
Get away from me
(You won't)
Get the best of me
(I can't)
Stop or slow down
I never have and I never will

I never will…

You won't break me
(Or silence this heartbeat
Your words, they mean nothing)
I will break free
(From the walls that surround me
I'm sick of this feeling)

You won't break me
I will break free
You won't break me
(You won't break me)
I will break free from you

You won't hold me
Right now, you won't and I can't…
You won't hold me

You won't break me
You won't
(Get away from me)
Break me
(Get the best of me)
You won't hold me down

You won't break me
(Or silence this heartbeat
Your words, they mean nothing)
I will break free
(From the walls that surround me
I'm sick of this feeling)

You won't break me
I will break free
You won't break me




8. YOU MAKE ME SICK

I want you to stop
To sit and think
Of all the times you tried to steal from me
Ride my coat tails, use my name
Your smiles exposed all your fangs
Your forked tongue is always running

Spilling from your mouth
I suggest you bind it up & keep it
Keep it to yourself

You make me sick
Just go away
I'm exposing all of your fangs
Your tongue is poisoning
You serpent, you snake
You make me sick

The apple in your mouth
Comes from the riches made from me
Keep it, eat it, have your fill
I hope you're choking

Like a snake with my foot on your head
Don't want you dead, need you alive
To feel every moment
When I crush it

You disgust me

You make me sick
Just go away
I'm exposing all of your fangs
Your tongue is poisoning
Feeding on the weak
You serpent, you snake
You make me sick

I'm nauseous, you're wretched
With false power, you've gone mad
Unhinged and disgusting
I'm nauseous, you're wretched
With false power, you've gone mad
Unhinged and disgusting
You're gruesome and you're grim
All you do is make me feel exactly what you are
All you do is make me feel exactly what you are
You make me sick

You serpent
You lying snake
You make me sick




9. IDENTITY DISORDER

Your heart is a fire
But the cold is comforting
My mouth is a liar
With my silver tongue in cheek

The silence is deafening
My words cut deep
The darkness is blinding
Consuming me
All I am is what I say
So turn your back and walk away
My words cut deep
But the silence is deafening

I am starving
(For something that's real)
So I bite the hand that feeds
(They all took from me)
The pieces I'm missing
(That's what they want from me)
Will be exactly what I need

The silence is deafening
My words cut deep
The darkness is blinding
Consuming me
All I am is what I say
So turn your back and walk away
My words cut deep
But the silence is deafening

I question every part of who I am
I question every part of who I am
It's hard to tell which side of me is in the right
With these two different people inside of me fighting for my life
Fighting for my life
I question every part of who I am

The silence is deafening
My words cut deep
The darkness is blinding
Consuming me
All I am is what I say
So turn your back and walk away
My words cut deep
But the silence is deafening




10. YOU'RE NOT ALONE

When your reflection in the mirror smiles back it lies, you know it
When you lay your head to sleep at night, it's filled with every moment
Every chance you miss to be something, well, learn from your mistakes
You're not alone, you're with me

You're not alone, you're with me

Don't let the world bring you down
There's always hope for the willing
Don't let the world bring you down
It's not over, you're not alone anymore

When it feels like all is lost and there's no guide that's left to prove it
Take a look inside, cherish your life
And live before you lose it
You're all waiting for the answer
Keep on searching, strength in numbers

Don't let the world bring you down
There's always hope for the willing
Don't let the world bring you down
It's not over, you're not alone anymore

At the end of the day, what will you choose ?
Will you keep moving on or be forced to lose ?
Look inside of yourself 'cause the power's in you
There is always hope, you're not alone

Anymore

Don't let the world bring you down
(Don't let the world bring you down)
There's always hope for the willing
Don't let the world bring you down
(Don't let the world bring you down)
It's not over, you're not alone anymore

(Don't let the world bring you down)
Don't let the world bring you down
(Don't let the world bring you down)
You’re not alone
(Don't let the world bring you down)
Don't let the world bring you down
It's not over, we're not alone anymore




11. SPACE ENOUGH TO GROW

What do you see when you close your eyes ?
How do you feel when you see it ?
Who is to say that it isn't real ?
And why can't we lie to believe it
To believe in something ?

Look into the emptiness and step into the cold
Right between your body and your soul
Deep inside of all of us there's something left to hold
Even when we give up all hope
There's space enough to grow

I know that we are all terminal
We sail on borrowed time
It's never about what we leave behind
It's how we live our lives

Look into the emptiness and step into the cold
Right between your body and your soul
Deep inside of all of us there's something left to hold
Even when we give up all hope
There's space enough to grow
To grow

What do you see when you close your eyes ?
