Track Name: The End And The Rebirth
As we cross to the unknown
I see fear engulf your eyes
And we both know we're on our own
Though it hurts to recognise
Our lives have both
Taken very different paths
But for now we know
It's time

So take my hand
Just pull me through
If this is how it has to be
I wish to spend it all with you

Turn around
Look Away
No one wished to see this day
Close your eyes as this storm
Preys upon the Earth

The world we know
Its time is short
Change is bearing down on us
The past is something we can't afford
Right now

So take my hand
We'll make it through, we'll find a way

Turn around
Look Away
No one wished to see this day
Close your eyes as this storm
Preys upon the Earth

Feeling love
Feeling hate
See the world
Dissipate
So just stay with me as we witness
The end and the rebirth

Don't give in to it
We will find a way
Hope is not too far
From our reach

Turn around
Look Away
No one wished to see this day
Close your eyes as this storm
Preys upon the Earth

Feeling love
Feeling hate
See the world
Dissipate
So just stay with me as we witness the

Collapse of man
The end and the rebirth
Track Name: Haunted
So
So we're back in this place again
But deep down inside you know it's the end
All these battles, they take their toll
And how beautifully you did play your role

I guess that's all that should be said
Memories that are better off dead
Please don't dwell on this any more
Get it over with, throw me out the door

See how she makes each move so patiently, patiently
You moved on with your life so easily, easily

I guess your virtues are intact
So take solace in this unbreakable fact
I thank you for your time today
I guess you got sick of playing your games

See how she makes each move so patiently, patiently
You moved on with your life so easily, easily

Lead on
Follow

See how she makes each move so patiently, patiently
You moved on with your life so easily, easily

See how she makes each move so patiently, patiently
And how she moves on so damn easily, easily
Track Name: 15 Minutes
One more day until I pour this emptiness out
One more way you tear at my seams again
No one sees, no one can see the scar, it darkens
Soon they'll see, my 15 minutes of fame

Nothing to lose
Oh how they're fascinated
Which one to choose?
They'll know me now

I can turn this world inside out
Everything you love will be mine
They will watch it all unfold with
Voyeuristic eyes

I can't wait to see the platform they will give me
Far too late, my life will intrigue you all
All I want is for someone to understand me
This is all, all that I've come to know

Just look away
You just can't do it, can you?
I give you all
Just what you want

I can turn this world inside out
Everything you love will be mine
They will watch it all unfold with voyeurist...

Voyeuristic eyes

I can turn this world inside out
Everything you love will be mine
They will watch it all unfold with
Voyeuristic eyes

Voyeuristic eyes
Voyeurist
With voyeuristic eyes
Track Name: Elegance & Grace
I can feel hate
I can feel pain in you
I can see that time brings many burdens
And it has left its fair share with you

I can see more
Than what you wish me to see
There is something underneath the surface
A sense of love and purpose, like me

Say to me
That you can feel all this life
You can feel the reaction
Sever the distraction
Fall into the passion
That swims through both of our eyes

I can see a change
I see something new in you
Maybe our surroundings are choking
The life that I know out of you

You move through the crowd
With elegance and grace, so slow
Yet I can't seem to catch you
I feel myself slipping down below

Say to me
That you can feel all this life
You can feel the reaction
Sever the distraction
Fall into the passion
That swims through both of our eyes

I can see you
I can see me
I can see two different places
And one that I don't wanna be

Say to me
That you can feel all this life
You can feel the reaction
Sever the distraction
Fall into the passion
That's gone from your eyes

Feel your reaction
Use your new distraction
Move on with such passion
I saw once in your eyes
Track Name: Show's Over
So you wanted to see what's inside of me
And take it apart so inquisitively
Now you've seen what I can't hide

So you've had your fill, and that was your thrill
Time to move on and fulfill all your own desires
And just leave the wreckage for someone else

Wreckage for someone else

(So just run away)
What could be left for you?
There's nothing to see here, show's over
Just so you know
There's nothing for you, run away

So go your own way
No reason to stay
I'm sure it's been torture for you up to now anyway
We both know what you really want

You indulge yourself, not anyone else
You talk of the pretense of others, like you can tell
But you're just like the ones that you claim to hate

The ones that you claim to hate

(So just run away)
What could be left for you?
There's nothing to see here, show's over
Just so you know
(There's nothing for you, run away)
Thought this was real, but you're always looking over your shoulder
And now I know
Just run away

So much lost and nothing gained here
Oh how I wish that I could (just run away)

What could be left for you?
There's nothing to see here, show's over
Just so you know
(There's nothing for you, run away)
Thought this was real, but you're always looking over your shoulder
And now I know
There's nothing for you run away

Nothing for you run away
So just run away
So just run away
There's nothing for you run away
Track Name: As The Sea Divides
So many obstacles thrown in our way
For once it feels there's nothing left to say
Crawling to the ends of this Earth to find
The solution resides within our minds
This is how it always was to end
It was not a case of if but when

Makes you feel so alone
And it devastates me
I can't help you now
This is not what I want
But this is what we need

This world has left us many scars to take
But for one moment we made them fade away
So even as the sea divides
And we traverse in on different tides
We feel not pain, live free of hate
Begin again

Makes you feel so alone
And it devastates me
I can't help you now
This is not what I want
But this is what we need to
Move through this life

Makes you feel so alone
And it devastates me
I can't help you now
This is not what I want
But this is what we need to
Move through this life

Move through this life
Track Name: Flipside
We know that you've been so troubled and had so much to decide
And we've seen you tell how you came out the other side

But nothing ever changes who you are
Or who you want to be
Changing shape to fit in and be the star
Oh what a life

All we want is something
That we can call our own
This is why we must move on
It's so sad to leave you

Don't get me wrong I'm not saying you shouldn't do what you want
But you're breaking lives up and acting like you just don't
And we've seen the lies
And you still deny

But nothing ever changes who you are
Or who you want to be
Changing shape to fit in and be the star
Oh what a life

All we want is something
That we can call our own
This is why we must move on
It's so sad to leave you
Life is getting older
The world is getting colder
And we are all we have
And so I will see you on the flipside

The sky is so clear tonight
Been taken for such a ride
At least there's an end in sight
For us

All we want is something
That we can call our own
This is why we must move on
It's so sad to leave you
Life is getting older
The world is getting colder
And we are all we have
And so I will see you on the flipside
Track Name: Aesthetics
Such hypocrisy
Such twisted beauty
Burning desire only to judge
Fake smile of reassurance
I have never felt so alone as now
But I'm not on my own by any stretch

And so
This feeling starts to grow
I want, I hesitate
The staring, hatred tearing through the air

I feel like I can't stay because truth it has worn out
Can't see the light of day for all the insults and doubt
Isolated, I am warped just like wood in choking heat
Rarely changes, no matter who you meet

Sophisticated
Domesticated
Generalise, something of a frequency
The crevasse is deeper than you'll ever see
Time changes so many things I see
But this plague it infests perpetually
And so
Do you want to know
My flaws? My past mistakes?
My deepest deepest insecurites?

I feel like I can't stay because truth it has worn out
Can't see the light of day for all the insults and doubt
Isolated, I am warped just like wood in choking heat
Rarely changes, no matter who you meet

Some things are truly beautiful to me
Aesthetics or morbid irony

And so
This feeling will not let go
Still want, still hesitating
Don't know just what you're creating
I'm breaking you keep taking it all
Too late now I fall into myself

I feel like I can't stay because truth it has worn out
Can't see the light of day for all the insults and doubt
Isolated, I am warped just like wood in choking heat
Rarely changes, no matter who you meet
Track Name: Saviours
Look at all the people on their way, as all the lies keep building up
Fed to us and growing day by day, they just can't get enough
You can feel it, you see it, you know it yet they, show no signs of letting up
Who could blame them, the power it flows their way, we need to prove our worth

You wanted to take it all away
You wanted to squeeze the life from me
You wanted to force us all to say
'we obey'

Say we will not be, will not be denied
Or we won't go down, down without a fight, no

This world was not built for fairness, or self-awareness, compassion or even love
But if we can just break these walls down, maybe our minds can grow
Don't let them take this away from you
You know just what to do

Say we will not be, will not be denied
Or we won't go down, down without a fight, no
We are the saviours of all that we wish to be
We can see through you and
All of these trials we've gone through will cease to be
You can't squeeze the life from me

Time will slip away

Say we will not be, will not be denied
Or we won't go down, down without a fight, no
We are the saviours of all that we wish to be
We can see through you and
All of these trials we've gone through will cease to be
You can't squeeze the life from me
Squeeze the life from me
Track Name: The World We Used To Know
Sparks rain down from time to time
Memories fall through my mind
Slipping out of my weak grip
Reality I struggle with
Soon truth crashes down on me
Now nothing more than a dream

Nothing more than a dream

You showed me all I could be
Come back to me
I'm not long for this world
Whatever I have left

Our own end we did create
I hear screams again, through my head they grate
I can't take this own my own
And all that I touch feels so much colder than the world we used to know

You made me just who I was
Gave me purpose gave me cause
Made me see I had a heart
Now all that's fallen apart
Farewell to my sense of self
For you gave that to me as well

Gave that to me as well

Finish me now
Finish this now
Oh please finish me now
I'm not long for this world
Whatever I have left

Our own end we did create
I hear screams again, through my head they grate
I can't take this own my own
And all that I touch feels so much colder than the world we used to know


So here I stand
All that I have ever known has
Turned to dust
Like we
slowly faded away
I wish I knew
How all this would feel beside you
But there is no time to dwell
This life is mine to live...

Time is always marching on
Turn towards the setting sun
Though your time may soon be done
Live as though it's just begun
Time is always marching on
Turn towards the setting sun
Though your time may soon be done
Live as though it's just begun

Live as though it's just begun

Live as though it's just begun
