Track Name: On Fire Again
Chorus:
I don’t know how to start again
Never knew how to just say when
I want to feel again, breathe again,
Light this heart on fire again

I don’t ever want to break again,
I don’t ever want to lose again,
I want to fly again, try again,
And feel my heart on fire, on fire, on fire again

Walls are broken,
Split in two,
No heart, no mind, no trace left of you
Here in this place,
Here in my doubt,
Can I find my way out?
Find my way out?

Chorus

Twisting, turning,
Darkened halls,
No hope,
Too late,
Whispers that I’ve lost it all,

Here in this place,
Here in my doubt,
Can I find my way out?
Find my way out?

Chorus
Track Name: Lock and Key
Under fire,
Lock and key
Too many people have the answer
They try to tell me
Who I should be
But I will serve no master

‘Cause what’s the use of pretending
That you can’t stand up for yourself
And what’s the point of living
Don’t let them break you down

Under fire
Lock and key,
Too much distraction and no answers
Everywhere I’m told who to be
But I will serve no master

‘Cause what’s the use of pretending
That you can’t stand up for yourself
And what’s the point of living
Don’t let them break you down

They try to break me, break me down
A sea of voices where I could drown
What to follow,
What to believe,
I won’t live under lock and key

Don’t let them break you down,
Don’t let them break you down,
Don’t let them break you down,
Don’t let them break you down

‘Cause what’s the use of pretending
That you can’t stand up for yourself
And what’s the point of living
Don’t let them break you down
Track Name: Lucifer's Song
White field of snow,
Drifting flakes blow below,
I’m in a box buried deep
So I don’t have to face you

Can’t take past away,
Can’t forget,
You left me too long, too long in silence
No words left to say,
You forgot,
You left me too long, too long in silence, too long in silence

What do you want me to say?
What do you want me to say?
What do you want me to say?
I think it’s too late
My world’s on fire,
I can’t go higher,
And you won’t answer,
You left me in the fire

Can’t take past away,
Can’t forget,
You left me too long, too long in silence
No words left to say,
You forgot,
You left me too long, too long in silence, too long in silence

You reap what you sow
And I’ve let you go
You reap what you sow
Now live in your own silence, your own silence

Can’t take past away,
Can’t forget,
You left me too long, too long in silence
No words left to say,
You forgot,
You left me too long, too long in silence, too long in silence
Track Name: In These Waking Hours
Sleepless nights left me spinning round and round,
Late and lonely with my world turned upside down,
One more day that I’ve somehow let slip past,
Wonder if this night will finally be my last

And how the night wind blows its sad song,
We’ve been torn apart for so long
And in these waking hours I wait here,
Dreaming of the day you’ll be near

The room is white and the walls are caving in
Wonder if I’m here to pay for all my sins
Can’t remember who I am or what I’ve done
What I wish for most is just to see the sun

You’re just a memory
I’m in the night sea
The dark’s come closer
Can this be over?

And how the night wind blows its sad song,
We’ve been torn apart for so long
And in these waking hours I wait here,
Dreaming of the day you’ll be near
Track Name: The Desert Train
Rolling down the blackened track,
Been here quite the distance,
Up and down,
Falling back,
Endless loop existence

Going nowhere
The train is moving fast
Dreaming of somewhere,
But I’m running circles in the sand
Lost in nowhere,
As time slips through my hands,
Dreaming of somewhere,
But I’m running circles in the sand

Sending prayers for the rain,
Smoke signs in the distance,
But no one answers on this train,
We just wait and listen
Silence, silence, nothing more
The sun keeps beating down,
Wishing for the ocean shore,
There’s nothing all around

Going nowhere
The train is moving fast
Dreaming of somewhere,
But I’m running circles in the sand
Lost in nowhere,
As time slips through my hands,
Dreaming of somewhere,
But I’m running circles in the sand
Track Name: Shadow Man
Run, run, run through the hallway
Doors are calling me
There’s no neon sign to tell me
What will set me free

Out of breath,
Out of time,
There’s no place to hide
Shadowman, will you catch me if I fall behind?

Through the dark,
Across the sky,
May this blaze reach to the blind

Feel the cold hands creeping over,
Feel their heavy weight,
As I feel myself slip under,
Thinking it’s too late,

Sinking in the ground,
I’m swimming,
Bells are ringing now,
He leans in to whisper softly,
“Time to take a bow.”

Through the dark,
Across the sky,
May this blaze reach to the blind,
If the dark should leave me blind,
May this blaze reach to the sky.
Track Name: Writing on the Wall
A million ways to pass the hours,
And yet I’m slipping, slipping away
And how time weighs so heavy now
Is life ever what it seems?


Beyond the writing on the wall,
I have no mask here left at all,
Beyond the writing on the wall,
I have no mask here left at all


And then I count up all the ways
I tried to be could’ve beens
If I’m just a face that looks the same,
Then nothing matters anyway


Beyond the writing on the wall,
I have no mask here left at all,
Beyond the writing on the wall,
I have no mask here left at all

We are the writing on the wall,
We are the writing on the wall,
We are the writing on the wall,
We are the writing on the wall
Track Name: Garden of Eden
Come a little closer, baby,
The day has turned to night
And we could talk for hours,
Or just turn out the light
The night is calling
I wanna touch the sky
Let’s get going
We’re gonna fly, fly, fly


I feel the tick, tock, ticking of time


Sweet, sweet, Garden of Eden
Little taste of the something that’s missing
Fire it up,
We’re gonna spin, spin
Hold me close and feel the wind,
Fire it up and feel alive again
We’re gonna fire it up and feel alive again


Garden of Eden, Garden of Eden
(Can you take me to fly?)
Track Name: On the Shore
Sitting in the wings,
I’m on the side,
I’m watching life roll by
All the faces swimming in and out,
I wave hello, goodbye

And I’m alone
And I’m afraid
Of what’s not here
The boat is gone,
I’m on the shore,
I’ve disappeared

Waiting on the ringside,
On the outside,
I’m just looking in,
All the stories passing by,
And I’m just weaving out and in

And I’m alone
And I’m afraid
Of what’s not here
The boat is gone,
I’m on the shore,
I’ve disappeared
Track Name: Crosshairs
Johnny, Johnny, get your gun on,
The kids are back in school,
Johnny, Johnny, get your gun on,
‘cause God says you’re a tool

Strap it on,
Got your lock, strap, and barrel,
Big man now,
You got your cause and your peril
Wind it up, Johnny, and take your blow,
The world’s watching now,
Your reality hit show
Wind it up, Johnny, and take your blow,
The world’s watching now,
Your reality hit show

Don’t want to hear your answers,
Don’t want to hear your lies,
Let’s end it all now, and preach that God said it was right,

So fuck your guns,
And fuck your might is right,
War is not the answer,
And death is not your almighty right
Track Name: Empty
Each thought keeps spilling over,
Each second bends,
One too many thoughts to handle,
Thoughts that never end
Away, away

I’m quickly reaching what I think is the very top,
But more keeps spilling in, no matter how much I try to stop
And just when I think I’m overflowing,
I spill,
I’m empty now, empty now with you

I’ll let the waves crash over me,
I’ll let the waters run,
Thoughts are only echoes of the words we’ve overdone,
There’s nothing left to say when the well has overrun,
I’m empty now, empty now with you
I’m empty now, empty now with you
I’m empty now, empty now with you
