Lyrics

1. INTRO

(Instrumental)




2. THE ACCOUNTABLE

The truth is found
Six feet underground
Or laying at the bottom of the sea.

After all who thought it would come to this,
Come down to this. (x2)

Yet misguided truths are right here within these walls.
And to speak of them is a sin
Against the ones you swear to the most.
So everyone knows the truth. (x4)

To purge ones self in a such a misleading way is just a shame
To purge ones self in a such a misleading way, a mile away.

So sit and wait, and lose all we've ever hoped. (x3)
Hoped! Hoped! ...

As pages turn and days go by, you only wither away.
You only wither to the tale of time




3. MINDLESS MINDLESS

I'm starring at the cracks,
And all the lines you wrote to get me home.
It's not over yet;
I'll speak the same until it breaks my jaw,
And it breaks my heart to see you this way.

So I'll pray for the day,
That new things will come to wash these ones away.

It's not over yet (x3)
It's not over at all.

I'm starring at the cracks
And all the lines you wrote to get me home.

So I'll pray for the day,
That new things will come to wash these ones away.

There's something attractive in a lack of direction,
And you look so lost. And oh you look so lost (x2)
And oh you look so lost. And oh you look so lost




4. THE PORTRAIT

Oh, the humanity
Oh, the perjury
Tell me how it feels to not know
That your children are safe at night
Dear father, dear mother,
I'm leaving you,
Goodbye

Does it feel familiar to you?
Does it make you cold inside?
Does it feel familiar to you?
Does it make you cold inside?

It's safe to say your life's a disgrace.
This is the hope fleeing the scene.
Build your bombs and I'll build my dreams.
The youth is the future, or so they say.

But what will happen, if the future is flawed,
From the youth looking back?
Is this the land of the free,
Or a franchise of super stars?
Live for a better life,
Not for dead dinosaurs.

Oh, the humanity,
Oh, the suicides.




5. THE TIDE

And his face shown like the sun
Rejoice, rejoice the tide has come

Tide has come to take us all
Tide has come to take us
Tide has come to take us all
Tide has come to take us

Take us away to a better place
Take us away to a better place
Take us away to a better place
Take us away to a better place

When the skin bound to your limbs traces back to home
The sand pulls you back in working through your skull
The sand pulls you back in working through your skull

Tide has come to take us all
Tide has come to take us
Tide has come to take us all
Tide has come to take us

And I will pray and climb to the highest of highs
To get back to the ground again
And oh God to be home again
With back drop hills and florescent lit skies
Burning images into the backs of your eyes
Into the backs of your eyes
Into the backs of your

We're all singled by our desires
That love can fix but life builds walls
We're all singled by our desires
That love can fix but life builds walls




6. COME AGAIN?

(Instrumental)




7. HELLO ASTRONAUT

It's hard to breathe when you're choking yourself
It's hard to see through eyes misleading
Though I swear I've been here before

So please, oh please pick up your feet
I can't carry you anymore, anymore
In world of disbelief these words are guidance
In world of disbelief these words are guidance
That one should follow

So please, oh please pick up your feet I can't carry you
(I can't carry you)
So please, oh please pick up your feet I can't carry you
(I can't carry you)

So say your prayers for the last time
You're a victim of your own lies
You're a failure
You're wrong
We lay our hearts into a pool of filth
We are lead by false pretenses
In a world of disbelief, these words are guidance
In a world of disbelief, these words are guidance
That one should follow




8. THE CONDUCTOR

This is the beginning of the end,
I'm always wrong, it's always me

Through broken ties fix me slowly
I will take your hand to show you the way
Delay and me: it's all I have to give you
So let me in, let me in
Let me in these walls

Guess what?
I'm wrapping it, I'm wrapping it around your neck
You won't feel a thing

And I'll sew your mouth shut then you'll shut up
I can see it in your eyes
It could have never been true
Oh, I see it in your eyes
I'll sew your mouth shut then you'll shut up
(I'll sew your mouth shut then you'll) shut up
Shut up

You're suffering ends tonight
I've heard this once before,
I've heard this once before - be still
Just say your prayers one last time, tonight
And I'll sew your mouth shut then you'll shut it up
Shut up

Through broken ties fix me slowly
And I will take your hand to show you the way
Delay and me: it's all I have to give you
To give you




9. WE ARE THE MESSENGERS

Oh, dear god.
We are lost.
We need your guidance now.
In this moment of truth, you're our voice.
We are the messengers.

In this moment of truth, your words fall on deaf ears.
We will not stand for this.
You are finished here.
We are trials of truth.

I fall asleep at the wheel as
I'm making my way to the surface again.

This road splits in two.
One path to a place I've always known.
The other is leading me to uncertainty.
But I will find that in this life there is only so much
I can do for you.
And I'll do what I can, to be the man you hoped that
I would be

We are the messengers
In this moment of truth, you're words fall on deaf ears.
We will not stand for this.
We are done with this.

I'll do what I can, to be the man you hoped I'd be

We're on our way to being free.




10. ESCAPE THE FLOOD

Scared shaking my teeth
Loose these walls are closing in on me.
Come on.
Dropped jaws as they watched us sinking,
Into the sand where they know it should be.

What could they say?
We've been here too many times
And this is what I am
But I'm still trying
To change my past
I've let so many down in my life,
So many hearts left astray.

You'd bleed for me, but I'd die for you.
We're all wrong, come on!
This is what I am
But I'm still living with your ghost.

I only wish you the best

Scared shaking my teeth
Loose these walls are closing in on me.
Dropped jaws as they watched us sinking,
Into the sand where they know it should be.

Is this what you, had hoped for?
I'm sorry to say, that I want you to be free
Go on be with him
I'll die as no hero
And I'm the victim of betrayal

Can you see them now watching you?
Feeling everything
Well I'm sorry to say this is goodbye

I only hope for the best.
(Dropped jaws as they watched us sinking)
And the best is
(Into the sand where they know it should be)
Just say goodbye.
Say goodbye.

(Dropped jaws as they watched us sinking...)




11. ANTHROPHOBIA

Break your ties to a life hypocrisy.
You’ve let down everyone who has cared.
If wasting every second of your life is what you think
Can save you then let that be that.

Reaching into the back of my mind
Searching for a moment of sane
Like heaven no one ever cared for you.
You lead the world to believe

You are a fake. (you are a fake)
The choir is singing, the choir is singing.
You are a fake, you are a fake.
The choir is singing, the choir is singing.
You are a fake, you are a fake.
The choir is singing, the choir is singing.
You are a fake, you are a fake.
The choir is singing, the choir is singing.
You are a fake.




12. REACH FOR THE SKY

From the look on your face, and the chains about your neck,
I'm willing to bet you're a prized possession.

Just give it up.
Just give it your all.
Just give it up.
(x2)

This is not the way you were meant to be.
This is not a moment of clarity.
This is not the way you were meant to be.
This is not a moment of clarity.

My heart is willing to change.
You're mine.

Your words are taking over mine.
Your words are taking over mine.
They're taking over every feeling I have,
It's all for you.

Give me your hand now!
This is exactly what it means, to promise.
I'll teach you to breathe.

Raise your hands to the sky, if you feel alive.
Raise your hands to the sky, if you feel alive.

Raise your hands to the sky, if you feel alive.
Raise your hands to the sky, if you feel alive
