Track Name: Heart's Hidden
Why do we trust in flames if they reduce us to dust?
Yeah something so strong, is bound to hurt this much.
They know me as a force, as someone who is brave,
but I'll admit that everyday, I'm afraid.

The salt in your wound's there to heal quickly,
But I gotta wonder when I will breathe easy.
What do you do when all you know is to shut down?
I can't let in all I've tried so hard, to keep out.

I know I'm letting you down.

Can you blame me if I'm running from my demons?
Close your eyes yeah, tell me if you see them.
Can you help someone that don't want your saving?

The same river washed the same soot off.
I washed my hands but you, you're all I know of.
This heart's had enough, it's finally hidden
This mess of a mind, comes from something within.

But, god what if I let you in?

Can you blame me if I'm running from my demons?
Close your eyes yeah, tell me if you see them.
Can you help someone that don't want your saving?

I won't ask you to save me.

I watched you walk and walk away stared at your back.
I watched you walk and walk away.
Whoa
I watched you walk and walk away stared at your back, you walked away.
I watched you walk and walk away,
I just watched, my voice caught.
Track Name: Vultures
I can't breathe, I can't breathe
Oh I always hold my breath
When I tell you the truth, I won't have home
You'd have covered my tracks

You'll make a mess of this monster
I'll hide while I wonder,
How much longer you'll be sending vultures.

God has told me, I was always different.

Yet still they're circling,
winds will be blowing,
a piece of you I'll be holding.

I can't see, I can't see
Like a coward, I'll close my eyes
So I can savour the image of a good man,I'll lock inside
In growing I've only lost count of the goodbyes
And I've seen, many good things die.

In spite of our losses and heartaches, all our voices sing.

Yet still they're circling,
winds will be blowing,
a piece of you I'll be holding.

Let the good people sing.

We hunger to go on living.

Let the good people sing.

Yet still they're circling,
winds will be blowing,
a piece of you I'll be holding.
Track Name: So it Goes
There was an angel,
Bright white, and oh how she'd glow.
Fair, to say so it goes
Our picture perfect future fell fast,
before bitter cycles.

Stand, just at the edge of the cliffs
Hands, raise high and balled into fists.

Over and over and over again,
It's not the end.
Sing like you mean it,
it's our resistance.
Resilience.

We won't trade our hearts to be cattle,
We know shame, in hoarding the right words
In half mind, and good conscience,
we sing and you won't know silence.

Over and over and over again,
It's not the end.
Sing like you mean it,
it's our resistance.
Resilience.

Everything counts, and this is our home,
and it will be, it will be long after they're gone
and they will be.
In tragedy, in trial, in delirium and ecstasy, a standard carries itself like the way a cactus bares a sandstorm.
There is strength within love, and there is love in this world.
Bearing wings, it resides in us all.
It's in you.
Loud, undying and triumphant,
it's in you.

Over and over and over again,
It's not the end.
Sing like you mean it,
it's our resistance.
Resilience.
Track Name: Time Heals
Do you blame the ghosts, what they've said?
Do you play the tapes over again?
It's disconnected, the story's flawed
and questions fall just out of earshot

I'm hanging from the chandelier
She begs me, "Just come down, my dear"

There are only mirrors
Things aren't that much clearer
Whoa
The world starts spinning
I feel a shift beginning

I fell apart
That's all I know for sure,
I grabbed at nothing and crashed and burned
Cause we were wound so tightly
You plunged just right behind me.
Guilty tears, stream down and seer,
Think fast, memories erasing
Things start to twist, they're changing

Time heals, but there's no waiting.

There are only mirrors
Things aren't that much clearer
Whoa
The world starts spinning
I feel a shift beginning

Some just can't hold oceans in their hands,
It goes to show you can't believe them all when they say they can
Reels play again, but you can't say I didn't try
This is all your blame I'm letting go of mine.

And so there are only mirrors
Things aren't that much clearer
Whoa
As all that's happened grows older,
I just need to start over.
Track Name: Something Left
These days there's proof I'm haunted
Sleep walking, hopeless talking
I like to hope there's something left.

Eyes open, heart still pumping
Chest heaving, sick but running
I like to hope there's something left.

There's something left.

In the shadows, no one can know
If hope's a ship sailed when the beacon's off today
Come the future, or even sooner,
though not all is as sure,
the sun rises everyday.

Blessed be this heavy hole in my chest,
I'm passing off this pain,
As breathing like I'm alive, when I'm dead
I can't forget, I can't forget
All I know is there's something left.

In the shadows, no one can know
If hope's a ship sailed when the beacon's off today
Come the future, or even sooner,
though not all is as sure,
the sun rises everyday.

I know there's something left.

I'm breathing,
Chest heaving,
It won't always be like this.
It's not a lot but it's all that I have.
