1. Blood (empty promises)

I will forgive but I won't forget
And I hope you know you've lost my respect

You better watch out
If you don't know whats going on around you
You better think twice
Before you fly off the handle and lose it
You better join us
Before you get lost in the shuffle
You better rise against
The demons that are gonna try and hold you down

Does it run in your blood to betray the ones you love?
Does it run in your blood to betray the ones you love?
The ones you love, the ones you love, the ones you love

Cause I'm not a pawn for you to play in your fucking game
I've got dignity and I dream that I want to change
The pressure, your troubled and you let me down
I'm not deaf and all I hear is your empty promises

Does it run in your blood to betray the ones you love?
Does it run in your blood to betray the ones you love?
The ones you love, the ones you love, the ones you love

Does it run in your blood to betray the ones you love?
Does it run in your blood to betray the ones you love?

I will forgive but I won't forget
And I hope you know you've lost my respect

Does it run in your blood to betray the ones you love?
Does it run in your blood to betray the ones you love?


2. Not Listening

I'm not listening, not anymore
The more I learn, the more I ignore
I'm not listening, not anymore
The more I hear, the more I ignore
No I'm not listening, not anymore, No

Cause You gotta be bigger, be faster, be stronger
If your gonna survive any longer
In this lifetime, it better be the right time
The first time might be your last time
Am I a failure if I got nothing to lose
No, I'm not a failure, I got something to prove

[Chorus:]
I'm not listening, not anymore
The more I learn, the more I ignore
I'm not listening, not anymore
The more I hear, the more I ignore, the more I ignore

Cause I've lost my innocence
And I'm a stranger, A life changer
I'm a man thats not afraid of danger
I walk my own path, and blaze my own trail
Because I'm not afraid to derail
I won't get in line or be a middle man
So fuck you I'll make my own plan
And I got respect and I dont neglect
The people that I really care to protect
Am I a failure if I got nothing to lose
No, I'm not a failure, I got something to prove

[Chorus]

I told you before, wont listen anymore
I told you before, lets settle the score
I told you before, wont listen anymore
I told you before, lets settle the score

If not me then who?
If not now then when?
If not me then who?
If not now then when?

[Chorus]

I told you before, wont listen anymore
I told you before, lets settle the score
I told you before, wont listen anymore
I told you before, lets settle the score

Set it off right now
Blow it up, set it off
Fuck it up, set it off
Blow it up, Blow it up right now


3. Stop Looking Start Seeing

Hit or miss, fuck or fight
It's time to live your life
Go ahead, I know I'm right
I'm gonna lay it on the line
Put yourself in my shoes
Would you stand up for your rights
Line em up and knock em down
I'm not running scared tonight

[Chorus:]
I have climbed these walls before
And I'm not scared anymore
There's a time to lead and a time to follow
Because I won't take this anymore (these walls)
I've climbed these walls before (these walls)
There's a time to lead and a time to follow (these walls)

I see the walls closing in
And I feel I'm in danger
My enemy is not alone
In the mirror, there's a stranger
As I tried to break out
My panic led to fear
Hopeless, I am alone
I'm afraid the end is near

The truth doesn't always have to hurt

[Chorus]

Stop looking
Start seeing NOW
Right Now [x2]

The truth doesn't always have to hurt

[Chorus]


4. Take Me

Take me and let me in
Don't break me and shut me out

[Chorus:]
So take me and let me in
Don't break me and shut me out

I lit my pain on fire
And I watched it all burn down
Now I'm dancing in the ashes
And theres no one else around
Cause I wanna be apart of something
This is just a story of a broken soul

[Hook:]
As days go by, my heart grows cold
I can't seem to let this all pass me by

[Chorus x2]

I'm burning in the heavens
And I'm drowning in a hell
My soul is in a coma
And none of my friends can tell
That I'm reaching out and getting nothing
This is just a story of a broken soul

[Hook]
[Chorus x2]

Don't shut me out

Does anyone around me feel the same
Put your fist up and vent your pain
Does anyone around me feel the same
Put your fist up and vent your pain
Does anyone around me feel the same
Put your fist up and vent your pain
Does anyone around me feel the same
Put your fist up and vent your pain

[Hook]
[Chorus x2]
[Hook]

Take Me
Don't Break Me


5. Getting Away With Murder

Somewhere beyond happiness and sadness
I need to calculate
What creates my own madness
And I'm addicted to your punishment
And you're the master
And I am waiting for disaster

[Chorus]
I feel irrational
So confrontational
To tell the truth I am
Getting away with murder
It isn't possible
To never tell the truth
But the reality is I'm getting away with murder
(Getting away, Getting away, Getting away)

I drink my drink and I don't even want to
I think my thoughts when I don't even need to
I never look back cause I don't even want to
And I don't need to
Because I'm getting away with murder

[Chorus]

Getting away, Getting away, Getting away,
Getting away, Getting away, Getting away,
Getting away, Getting away, Getting away,
With murder

Somewhere beyond happiness and sadness
I need to calculate
What creates my own madness
And I'm addicted to your punishment
And you're the master
And I am craving this disaster

[Chorus 2x]

6. Be Free

Woke up and I feel like shit
I don't remember last night, I'm getting sick of this
I hit the bottle when I got off stage
And got piss drunk stupid and went in a rage
I think I mighta got into a fight
Because my knuckles were bloody and I don't feel alright
I hit the bottom and I don't even care
Some say I'm going to hell but I'm already there

[Pre-Chorus:]
Sick and tired of being sick and tired

[Chorus:]
I wanna be free from this ball and chain and
Be free from this life of pain and
Be free from this ball and chain
I wanna be free from you

Now I'm full of guilt and shame
I can't point a finger cause theres no one to blame
So I say I'll never do it again
But when the sun goes down, you are my only friend
I'm thinking I am starting to see
I have become everything I never wanted to be
I'm really getting sick of myself
Cause when I look into the mirror, I see somebody else

[Pre-Chorus]
[Chorus x2]

Sick and tired of being sick and tired
So sick and tired of being sick and tired
Sick and tired of being sick and tired
So sick and tired of being sick and tired

[Chorus x2]


7. Done With You

I count the days that we have spent apart
I've got a bad liver and a broken heart
Theres no salvation in the comfort of you
I finally realized your tearing me apart

[Chorus:]
So help me, save me, tell me that the end is near
Help me, save me, tell me that the end is near
I am done with you

You make my life completely miserable
You drove me to the edge, you've caused me all this pain
But I've always loved you cause your oh so special
I'm broken and I'm alone and I can't maintain

[Chorus]

Done with you (done with you)
I am done with you (done with you)
I am done with you (done with you)
I am done with you (you, done with you)

I count the days that we have spent apart
I've got a bad liver and a broken heart

[Chorus]

I am done with you


8. Scars

I tear my heart open, I sew myself shut
My weakness is that I care too much
And our scars remind me that the past is real
I tear my heart open just to feel

Drunk and I'm feeling down
And I just wanna be alone
I'm pissed cause you came around
Why don't you just go home
Cause you channel all your pain
And I can't help you fix yourself
You're making me insane
All I can say is

[Chorus:]
I tear my heart open, I sew myself shut
My weakness is that I care too much
And our scars remind us that the past is real
I tear my heart open just to feel

I tried to help you once
Against my own advice
I saw you going down
But you never realized
That you're drowning in the water
So I offered you my hand
Compassions in my nature
Tonight is our last stand

[Chorus]

I'm drunk and I'm feeling down
And I just wanna be alone
You shouldn't ever came around
Why don't you just go home?
Cause you're drowning in the water
And I tried to grab your hand
And I left my heart open
But you didn't understand
But you didn't understand
Go fix yourself

I can't help you fix yourself
But at least I can say I tried
I'm sorry but I gotta move on with my own life
I can't help you fix yourself
But at least I can say I tried
I'm sorry but I gotta move on with my own life

[Chorus x2]


9. Sometimes

I'm dreamin about tomorrow, I'm thinkin of yesterday, I consume myself in sorrow this moment in time is what I betray, I
am searching for the answers

[Chorus]
I look around sometimes I get sad, 'Cause I don't know which way to go, I look around sometimes I get sad, 'Cause my life
is spinning out of control

I never know what you want, I never know what you need, it was different from the start, when you cut me in two I never
thought I would bleed, but I am searching for the answers

[Chorus]

I will go this alone I don't need nobody's help, I've got to do this myself, Alone, Alone, Alone, Alone

[Chorus x2]


10. Blanket of Fear

I am awake under this blanket of fear, and I must say, none of the people I see belong here, now everyone's asleep, I am
awake and I am dreaming, I believe it's time for a rude awakening

[Chorus]
So hold on to your dreams, Because your nightmares might seem like they're your reality Hold on to your dreams, Because
your nightmares might seem like they're your reality

I believe, the only thing we have to fear is fear itself, and the man behind the curtain, I heard him say, "Dreamers have
become an endangered species, and I am aware of the rude awakening

[Chorus]

I'm falling in my dream I finally hit the ground,I'm falling in my dream I finally hit the ground, I hit the ground,
because I, I can't keep my mind from going into dark places, because I, I can't keep my mind from going into dark places

[Chorus]

I'm falling in my dream I finally hit the ground, I'm falling in my dream I finally hit the ground!


11. Tyranny Normality

The media is the seduction of human desire (set their money, set their money, on fire), if you try to sell me the truth
then I know you're a liar, a liar

[Chorus]
It's the tyranny of normality, it's the tyranny of normality

Our culture has become complacent, and has no desire (take back, take back our empire), and the ethical slaughter of
truth needs to be retired, retired

[Chorus]

It's the death of outrage!! I want to turn a new page!! I mourn the death of our age, the obituary's on the front page!!
Since the death of outrage, I want to turn a new page!! I mourn the death of our age, the obituary's on the front page,
it's the death of outrage, i mourn the death of our age, the obituary's on the front page


12. Do or Die

Today I saw my hero fall apart,
The one who taught me to be strong,
On the outside I look fine,
But on the inside I am dying
My strength has overcome my pain
My love for you remains the same
The loneliness is setting in
I have no one to free my sins

It's never too late to live your life,
The time is now, it's do or die
It's never too late to live your life,
The time is now, it's your to mine

Now it's my time to help you out,
Coz you were there when I was down,
It's hard for me to seal this way
Losing all your sanity
You helped me, keep my dreams alive ,
Without you how would I survive
It's time for me to be a man
Now I finally understand

It's never too late to live your life,
The time is now, it's do or die
It's never too late to live your life,
The time is now, it's your to mine

It's never too late to live your life,
The time is now, it's do or die
It's never too late to live your life,
The time is now, it's your to mine

I cant run anymore
I cant hide anymore
I cant run anymore
I cant hide anymore

Today I saw my hero fall apart,
The one who taught me to be strong,
On the outside I look fine,
But on the inside I am dying

It's never too late to live your life,
The time is now, it's do or die
It's never too late to live your life,
The time is now, it's your to mine

It's never too late to live your life,
The time is now, it's do or die
It's never too late to live your life,
The time is now, it's your to mine

It's never too late to live your life,
The time is now, it's do or die
It's never too late to live your life,
The time is now, it's your to mine

I cant run anymore
I cant hide anymore
I cant run anymore
I cant hide anymore

Yeaaaahh
