Track Name: The Calling
Our time is running out and I can see the light
That’s cracking through my windows
I just ain’t giving up
I won’t admit defeat
Quit playing with my shadow

All the wasted light
Wasting my life I know
Trying to fill it up
The empty part of my soul

Always calling
Always calling
Me saying maybe
You’ll be free
Always calling
Always calling
Me saying maybe
You’ll be free

And if I can’t feel that
I feel like a fact
Written on a piece of paper
No one ever looks at
When the morning light sends me to bed I know
There’s no one left to speak to
Nowhere left to go

All the wasted light
Wasting my life I know
Trying to fill it up
The empty part of my soul

Always calling
Always calling
Me saying maybe
You’ll be free
Always calling
Always calling
Always calling
Always calling

Me saying maybe
You’ll be free
Always calling
Always calling

Give your thoughts to me
You can’t have them you won’t understand them
Then you'll be free
Bound by the enemy, prefer mortality
Sell your soul to me

Always calling
Maybe you’ll be free (Always calling)
Maybe you’ll be free (Always calling)
Maybe you’ll be free (Always calling)
Maybe you’ll be free (Always calling)
Maybe you’ll be free (Always calling)
Maybe you’ll be free (Always calling)
Maybe you’ll be free (Always calling)
Track Name: Hero
The night before I was sweating in my sleep
Ringing in my ears what my mother said to me
Son don’t be a hero, don’t die on me
Got the train in the morning won’t be told what to be

Never thought I would see the morning
Didn't think I’d be returning
Count my steps everyday that I’m...

Alive like sunrise from the night
We’re unified, far and wide
I know it’s gonna be alright

My decisions finally made
Only the weakest memories fade
I can’t tell you what I’m looking for
Only the dead have seen the end of war

And everyone night I see them looking at me
All I see
And everyone night I see them looking at me
I can’t erase
What I want
And everyone night I see them looking at me
I can never say
And everyone night I see them looking at me
All I know
And everyone night I see them looking at me
Is that my soul
And everyone night I see them looking at me
Is never ending
And everyone night I see them looking at me
But I’ve lost control

Alive like sunrise from the night
We’re unified, far and wide
I know it’s gonna be alright
On the other side
We’re unified, far and wide
I know it’s gonna be alright

The wheels of life keep turning
The road ahead is burning
It’s all gone up in flames
So take me away
So take me away
I don't know what I’m seeing
I’ve got the darkest feeling
It’s all gone up in flames
So take me away

And everyone night I see them looking at me
All I see
And everyone night I see them looking at me
I can’t erase
What I want
And everyone night I see them looking at me
I can never say
And everyone night I see them looking at me
All I know
And everyone night I see them looking at me
Is that my soul
And everyone night I see them looking at me
Is never ending
And everyone night I see them looking at me
But I’ve lost control

Alive like sunrise from the night
We’re unified, far and wide
I know it’s gonna be alright
On the other side
We’re unified, far and wide
I know it’s gonna be alright

Tonight I lay here just trying to sleep
But my ears are ringing and their faces I still see
I Spend my nights writing to the people I can’t meet
Dear mother I’m a hero that’s all I’ll ever be

Hero
Hero
Track Name: Fuzzy Thinking
Living with finite time
I’m not gonna spend my life
Looking in from the side
Something out there I fear
My mistakes have become clear

Sit and wait until the morning light
To see if I can find
Find a way just to make it right
I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know,
But I won’t let it go
Just can’t let it go

Oh no

Why did I pretend like this
To live is to lie, it’s a curse
The mind needs a method to justify the years
That I spent starting fire spreading all with fear
Hunting for the wicked all those that interfere
Destruction is my method and now I’m crystal clear

Sit and wait until the morning light
To see if I can find
Find a way just to make it right
I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know,
But I won’t let it go
Just can’t let it go

Just let it go, let it go
Let it go, let it go
Let it go

In the pale moonlight I can see a face
It tells me it’s over, it’s over now
In the pale moonlight
Nothing can save me from falling down
Track Name: Lonestar
Take this pain it’s killing me
Take this pain it’s killing me

That day you fell out of bed, strated something wrong
You put down your guitar, won’t turn the radio on
Such boring melodies where every song sounds the same
Helped find a voice in me, and gave me a reason to play
Rinse that bitter taste out of your mouth
Don’t stop. don’t stop
I’ll give you reason to...

Keep keeping it up, Keep keeping it up, keep keeping
Soon we’ll get there
Keep keeping it up, Keep keeping it up, keep keeping
Soon we’ll get there

Take this pain it’s killing me
Take this pain it’s killing me
A lonely star it shines for you

Rough diamond under pressure
Forced hard to burn so brightly
The day you reach for sunlight
Too close the flame will burn you

The sun is setting down
The time to shine is now
But you’re just pulling away
So sad, you’re fading away

Keep keeping it up
Keep going
Keep keeping it up
Keep going
Keep keeping it up
Keep going
Keep keeping
So you’ll get there

Take this pain it’s killing me
Take this pain it’s killing me
A lonely star it shines for you

Next time you’re gonna figure out the trigger
Wonder if you’ll ever pull it, targets only getting bigger

You tongue is dry, so thirsty, words have turned to stone
See me try

Take this pain it’s killing me
Take this pain it’s killing me
A lonely star it shines for you
Track Name: Versus
To every victor goes all the spoils
The one’s left standing will write the history
Has it hit you yet? All the bets are set
Time to pay your debt
We mix like blood and oil

In this moment, we last forever
Sleep can wait for now and I ain’t going down
Down, down, down, down

Traitors live like the best
The honest put to death
Our fate is sudden
We mix like blood and oil
Don’t dig up my past
To bury tomorrow
Stuck in the hour glass
Waiting for something to change

In this moment, we last forever
Sleep can wait for now and I ain’t going down
Down, down, down, down
Made a moment last forever
no stick and stone can break these bones
Any word they say can’t touch our pride
Go run and hide, wait for it

Will this moment last forever?
Sleep can wait for now and I ain’t going down
Ain’t goin down
Wait for it
Track Name: Karōshi
No, no, this ain’t gonna happen
Coz it always takes so much to bring me down
There is more than meets the eye without truth or albi
Please forgive me, don’t walk away

Oh, no, can’t believe it happened, break our backs till we turn to dust
You might think you’re in control, truth be told you can’t evolve
You’re on your way to an early grave
Track Name: Where Are We?
Ohh weh oh weh
Ohh weh oh weh
Ahh weh oh eh
Ahh weh oh eh

Ohh weh oh weh
Ohh weh oh weh oh weh
Ahh weh oh eh eh
Ahh weh oh eh

Ohh weh oh weh
Ohh weh oh weh oh weh
Ahh weh oh eh
Ahh weh oh eh eh

It’s madness don’t you notice that I’m living the dream
I work 9 till midnight then I go home and sleep
My friends think I’m crazy but I’m having some fun
(Friends think I’m just crazy so I reach out for the gun)
But I’ll be the one laughing when I pull out the gun

Don’t waste your life it don’t come cheap
If weak is what you are, then that’s all you’ll be
Don’t waste the air you breathe

You are anxious, it’s over and out of control
But all that’s really left of you is skin and some bone
Ring ring hear that phone pick it up before it’s gone
(Ring ring please dont’ answer I just can’t pick up the phone)
Answer the call
Answer the call

Don’t waste your life it don’t come cheap
If weak is what you are, then that’s all you’ll be
Don’t waste the air you breathe

Where are we?
Where are we?
Where are we?
Oh where are we? (where are we?)

Where are we?
Where are we?
Where are we?
Oh where are we? (where are we?)

Ohh weh oh weh
Ohh weh oh weh oh weh
Ahh weh oh eh eh
Ahh weh oh eh

Ohh weh oh weh
Ohh weh oh weh oh weh
Ahh weh oh eh
Ahh weh oh eh eh

Can you honestly say it was worth it?
It’s not worth it anymore (Ah we oh we, ahh weh oh eh )
Is this the path you’ve chosen?
If you could go back one last time (Ah we oh we, ahh weh oh eh )
Is there anymore?
Is there any more to life?

Ohh weh oh weh
Ohh weh oh weh oh weh
Ahh weh oh eh eh
Ahh weh oh eh (where are we?)

Ohh weh oh weh
Ohh weh oh weh oh weh
Ahh weh oh eh
Ahh weh oh eh eh
Track Name: The River
Wake up the darker side of me
Break off that meek part of me
Have I been wasting all my time
Feeding everyone my lies
Desperate to kill the light in me
So understand I’ve drawn up plans
It’s time for me to kill

Drown my soul at the river
Let it go, let it float away
Drown my soul at the river
Let it go, let it go, let it float away
I gotta, I gotta, I gotta, I gotta let it go

Silence (silence) you’re finally on your own
A kingdom with no throne in a world away
A stream of lies, I come up for air
I looked around but the truth wasn’t there
In this haze my days fade away
Time for me to kill

Drown my soul at the river
Let it go, let it float away
Drown my soul at the river
Let it go, let it go, let it float away
I gotta, I gotta, I gotta, I gotta let it go

Drown my soul at the river
Let it go, let it float away
Let it go
Track Name: Panic Stations
I’m broken the darkness took them one by one
Eyes open knowing they’d never again see the sun
Of all the things I’ve seen, why am I still alive?
I think they want me to survive
Why am I still alive?

I feel it, I sense, I think I’m going mad (I hear their voices)
The voices, the anger, that’s all inside my head
I see the death, destruction and all the things they did (death in my head)
The memories of fear, the things I thought I hid

The darkness culminates
This time it gravitates to you

Panic stations, red alert
Something’s chasing me through the dirt
I can’t run and I can’t hide away
Hide away

Get out, get out, get out of my head
Won’t you get out? Get out, please get out of my head
Don’t you get it? Get out, get out of my head
Won’t you get out? Get out, get out of my head
Get out, get out, get out of my head
Get out of my head

I can feel it behind my eyes
I’ve lost the resolve to fight
You can’t run and you can’t hide away
Hide away

Panic stations, red alert
Something’s chasing me through the dirt
I can’t run and I can’t hide away
Hide away

Panic, it’s got you locked up in a cage
Panic, you have become it’s little slave
Panic stations
Track Name: Time
I know you’ve heard it all before
But you like this I can’t ignore
There’s something you’re not telling me
That's something I can’t tell you
We can't just put these words to rest
Until you get it off your chest
There’s something you’re not telling me
That something I can’t tell you

I’m losing out, losing out, losing out
As you slip away
I’m Calling out, calling out, calling out to say

Time, time to say goodbye
It's time, time to say goodbye
Never got to say goodbye
Just wish I did while we had time
Won’t let life fade away

It’s time (time)
It’s time (time)
It’s time (time)

Can't shake that shadow off your back
Sun’s disposition turning black
There’s something you’re not telling me
That's something I can’t tell you
I should have noticed from the start
thoughts of the past rip you apart
There’s some ghost always haunting me
There’s some ghost always haunting me

Time, time to say goodbye
It's time, time to say goodbye
Never got to say goodbye
Just wish I did while we had time
Won’t let life fade away

When all seems lost I think of you
When you believed in me I could never lose
Live life sweet and in the now
I try everyday, I hope I make you proud

Time, time to say goodbye
It's time, time to say goodbye
Time, time to say goodbye (there’s something you’re not telling me)
It's time, time to say goodbye (there’s something you’re not telling me)
Never got to say goodbye
Just wish I did while we had time
Won’t let life fade away
It’s time
Track Name: Always
Days go by too quickly through the seasons
But something happened on that Saturday
Working for the man it drives you crazy
Sometimes you have to the other way

Just the other day I saw you sleeping
Gently put a pillow on your face
It’s fine, don't cry I won't do any time
Fill the place with gasoline and light it up

Now I’m on the run they’re out to get me
Fill the car with guns and start to drive
I’m gone, I’m gone, so fuck it so long
It feels like ecstasy so yea, yea

Got you now, she’s got you now

Always, Always like a whisper in the air
It’s calling, always, always
Always, Always like a whisper in the air
It’s calling, always, always

Found a hotel room south of the city
Locked the door and turned out all the lights
Filled the bath till it was full and freezing
Throw my cards and phone out of the window,

Ripped up the photo gripped in my hand
Screaming at the mirror on the wall
Picked up the gun stashed in my suitcase
Heard a voice behind the door
She’s always there

Got you now, she’s got you now

Always, Always like a whisper in the air
It’s calling, always, always
Always, Always like a whisper in the air
It’s calling, always, always

Always, Always like a whisper in the air
I’m calling, always, always
Always, Always like a whisper in the air
It’s calling, always, always

Always, Always like a whisper in the air
It’s calling, always, always
Track Name: Roots
Wait just a minute, why do I feel so god damn lost without you
My feet can't fit in your shoes
She taught me everything I know
You’re the one in control
Take the wheel don’t look back, drive faster

Like branches on a tree we all grow in different ways
Yet our roots remain the same, our roots remain the same
And what I saw, I can't repeat, and what I saw, I won’t repeat I swear
Everything to me has been unsaid
Everything to me has been unsaid

You know I regret it, how can you say that I don’t care about you?
Stop rubbing the salt in those wounds
And if you wanted an apology
I’d say I’m sorry but I had to leave
But you don’t, no you don’t

Like branches on a tree we all grow in different ways
Yet our roots remain the same, our roots remain the same
And what I saw, I can't repeat, and what I saw, I won’t repeat I swear
Everything to me has been unsaid
Everything to me has been unsaid

Like branches on a tree we all grow in different ways
But our roots remain the same, our roots remain the same

The branches grow but the roots remain the same
The branches grow but the roots remain the same

A new beginning calls for me
Calls to me
Calls to me
