Track Name: Circling The Drain
Now I can see you pass on by
A look of purpose in your eye
How I envy you
I wish to be you

I've lived my life between these walls
I think this door is painted on
Cause I can't get through
I still see you

Life's so strange to me
Not sure I see
Just where I should go
It's so hard to know

I will not let this fade
But sometimes I feel I'm circling the drain
I'd like to see the rain
Come down on me and wash this all away

There's never been a perfect time
No stars are waiting to align
This could be nothing
Or it's everything

Times don't change for me
I'm sure I've been
In this place before
I'm breaking down the door

I will not let this fade
But sometimes I feel I'm circling the drain
I'd like to see the rain
Come down on me and wash this all away

Rain will wash this all away

I will not let this fade
But sometimes I feel I'm circling the drain
I'd like to see the rain,
Come down on me and wash this all away

I will not let this fade
But sometimes I feel I'm circling the drain
Can't wait to see the rain
Come down on me and wash this all away

Wash you all away
Track Name: No One's Safe
All at once we are awake
And this won't end well for you
The smoke has cleared to reveal a man with nothing left to lose
Hear how the crowd
It bays for blood
And you know i like to give the people what they want

Can we do this
Make it through this
I just need an ending to this
No more hatred
No frustration
Just get out of the way

No one's safe here tonight
We are happy to indulge you if you're looking for a fight
Or just go home

Ten thousand eyes fixated on
The place where I will end you
I hope next time you try this you'll think the whole thing through

Take it higher
Feed the fire
Just one target to acquire
Bridges burning
Tables turning
You will not have your way

No one's safe here tonight
We are happy to indulge you if you're looking for a fight
No one's safe here tonight
As we rise above your wave of lies
You will only drown yourself

No one's safe here tonight
No one's safe here tonight
So just go home

So just go home

No one's safe here tonight
No one's safe here tonight
So just go home
Track Name: Hold On For Your Life
So pristine, beyond all compare
Carved from dreams, but touch if you dare
House of glass in constant repair
Tainted past, blissful, unaware

What do you fear?
Are you happy you're here?

Hold on for your life
It's wearing thin
You always knew you were on borrowed time
Can you feel your lies?
They're caving in
The time has come for you to look within

Can't you see it leaves you behind?
Old, empty, that look in your eye

It's what you fear
And you're still here
Can you believe that you're still here?
I think the end is near

Hold on for your life
It's wearing thin
You always knew you were on borrowed time
Can you feel your lies?
They're caving in
It's time for you to look within

Hold on for your life
You always knew you were on borrowed time
Stand and face your lies
Before you close your eyes

Hold on for your life
It\s wearing thin
You always knew you were on borrowed time
Can you feel your lies?
They're caving in
It's time for you to look within

Hold on for your life
You always knew you were on borrowed time
Stand and face your lies
Before you close your eyes
Track Name: Upsurge
Just one more word
Is all that it could take
A crumbling foundation
Surely bound to break
You walk among the crowds
The performance carries on
No one wants to think of it, but it won't be long

And I cannot decide
If it's best to rage or to abide and
All we do is hide
From the darkness deep within ourselves
We all act like it's just fine
But underneath the surface you'll just know
You cannot hide from the darkness deep within

Your smile seems to lack
I think I see a crack
You must free yourself of this
Before it breaks your back
And all this hate
Will spell your own demise
Denial cannot help you
When it starts to rise

And I cannot decide
If it's best to rage or to abide and
All we do is hide
From the darkness deep within ourselves
We all act like it's just fine
But underneath the surface you'll just know
You cannot hide from the darkness deep within

So can you feel it rise?
Can you feel it rise?
Try to keep it in

It's dying to break free
And soon you will
Soon you will all see

And I cannot decide
If it's best to rage or to abide and
All we do is hide
From the darkness deep within ourselves
And we all act like it's just fine
But underneath the surface you'll just know
You cannot hide from the darkness deep within

So can you feel it rise?
Can you feel it rise?

Can you feel it rise?
Track Name: The Reprisal
Don't know me anymore
My mind has washed ashore
In a place that I don't recognise
But it chills me to the core

I wish that I could be
Anyone but me
I've kept this under wraps but now
My fate is upon me

I don't feel right
I can see it now
Not alone
The chase is on

It's gonna hunt you down

Hey
I think you're gonna wanna
Take another look at this
Before it gets too late
Sure, it's fun to say that you've washed your hands of it
But you can't keep running away

No use in looking back to see
If it's catching up on me
I just have to keep on pushing through
To create my reality

To feel again
Be it good or bad
Not alone
The chase rolls on

It's gaining on you now

Hey
I think you're gonna wanna
Take another look at this
Before it gets too late
Sure, it's fun to say that you've washed your hands of it
But you can't keep running away

It hunts you down
Delusions of escape
You're all alone now
You can't keep running

I know I'll trip up some day
And I'll be buried where I lay
But I won't be the first to say
That I gave up on running away

Hey
I think you're gonna wanna
Take another look at this
Before it gets too late
Sure, it's fun to say that you've washed your hands of it
But you can't keep running away

It hunts you down
Delusions of escape
You're all alone now

You can't keep running away

You can't keep running
