This is alive I'm sure The pieces fit together Appendages severed Every point of reference obscure Let's count the seconds in sync Let's reach high Let's carve the sky Every moment captured in a blink I could never walk away from this elaborate display Everything laid out so purposefully I could never turn away I could never not stay Everything turned out right on this day I'm done with sickness within Discarded my shedded skin Wrapped in enlightened resolve Problems of the world are solved Let's count the seconds in sync Let's reach high Let's carve the sky Every moment captured in a blink

All I need to do is smile and everything turns out astray A simple realization that life is not ok I begged for a solution for nature's evil ways I reached a conclusion, the world will never be ok At times I feel as though I make strides to be alright I learn from human nature that sometimes you have to fight A distant gleam of light, a far away ray of hope Guided by incandescense, sparked by the will to cope Well I, I said it for a reason And I, Will live with every result Well I, Suffered for a reason Now I, Can be full of hope Stick-around for a little longer cause you've been led astray this could happen to anyone I see it everyday live the life you call your own it's yours anyway a difficult path to follow despite what people say I rummage through the rubble to find whats mine today dissatisfaction of the way this explosion shaped my mind today a lovely reminder of life i used to lead a vacant truth to see, a label of a hollow need Stick around for a little longer cause you've been led astray this could happen to anyone I see it everyday live the life that you can call your own it's yours anyway a difficult path to follow despite what people say

The Beat 02:32
you gotta a lot of nerve fighting me back while the tension's on and my feelings lack i have half a mind to erase every thought in your brain i am full of the grace that got me in this place and the beat goes on and on and on i feel so strong you say you always wanted it this way you wanted to take everything as it came you say i'm the only one who could relate to the pain that only i could dictate this a little part of myself here's everything i have to give a whisper won't travel past my ear live for the second i've too far i've lived the life of a hero's spawn and the sound of the beat goes on and on and the beat goes on and on and on i feel so strong this spectacle has gone on and on and on even though my inspiration has come and gone i did everything to keep this going on and on my impulse will only live on and on and on

Worthwhile 06:10
I'll bet it hurt you I'll bet it hurt so bad shock seperation blunt disrelation sever every tie that prevents circulation cut every noose that prevents unrestraint or suffer through the pain of association suffer through the dependant state now how does it feel to be immune how does it feel to be attuned to the place where you can melt into any single space you wish unto so run run run just as fast you can i'd love to see these demons outran i'll stay back and smile as you transcend them it's all worthwhile it's all worthwhile so run run run just as fast you can i'd love to see these demons outran i'll stay back and smile as you transcend them it's all worthwhile it's all worthwhile I'd say it saved you I'd say it saved your life shock seperation vital disrelation so run run run just as fast you can i'd love to see these demons outran i'll stay back and smile as you transcend them it's all worthwhile it's all worthwhile so run run run just as fast you can i'd love to see these demons outran i'll stay back and smile as you transcend them it's all worthwhile it's all worthwhile after after all this time of scraping and clawing just to stay high enough to not fall into this polluted void and not wreck that beautiful mind i'll bet it free'd you i'd say it saved your life a blanket realization a welcome provocation i'd say you're justified your mind is yours to find A life now realigned nothing left to confine so run run run just as fast you can

Fiend 04:06
so what is going to stop my illuminating heart from beating what is going to break my concentration and flow who will tell me when i've had enough who is willing to be in the know as i look at the back of my sullen brain i search for the genesis of my pain i facilitate a war of love and hate i beg for disaster to be fate as i breathe in, my life is waiting for me as i breathe in, my eyes shield what i've seen as i relive every glimpse of my past i breathe in every breath like it's my last a sickly smile as it all implodes a trial of fire an exemplary pose an attempt at blessing this curse that i bare a faded desire to blacken my stare but then it all becomes light before the shadows can eclipse there becomes a moment of nothing but bliss we can live through this and thrive in what we miss or we can fade into the darkness of this internal eclipse as i breathe in, my life is waiting for me as i breathe in, my eyes shield what i've seen as i relive every glimpse of my past i breathe in every breath like it's my last I know I know I know to survive this Every little thing has to be in my sight I know I know I know to revive me Every little thing has got to turn out right I know I know I know to pacify me Every little thing has to turn out right as i breathe in, my life is waiting for me as i breathe in, my eyes shield what i've seen as i relive every glimpse of my past i breathe in every breath like it's my last

a whisper seperates dreams from reality and the certain success of a nightmare is bold a beautiful vision of a clear and ornate manifestation of a life untold a picture of sorrow a snapshot of life a bankrupt desire to drown in this strife a lonely redeemer a hollow sound to benefit a believer but never a shroud now i count the reasons why as i sit and observe the passers by i asked for the life of a saint i've been fed a life of restraint like a fiend goes in for the kill a glutton can never get his fill gravity is the world's enemy and the earth will never stand still it all comes down to this we make our own bliss we strive for what we miss we forget what we dismiss now i count the reasons why as i sit and observe the passers by i asked for the life of a saint i've been fed a life of restraint like a fiend goes in for the kill a glutton can never get his fill gravity is the world's enemy and the earth will never stand still

a second to let the flood in...

The Flood 01:30
a second to let the flood in a moment to douse my skin a while before i turn inside out a second to let the flood in i think i'm going to need something else to save me this time i think i may be drowning here and my mind just doesn't seem right a moment to soak it all in a second before it begins a while before i turn inside out a second to let the flood in i think i'm going to need something else to save me this time i think i may be drowning here and my mind just doesn't seem right the days go by with no air in sight to keep me here alive a reflection so distant is all i need to breathe again tonight

Like a Saint 02:54
I've seen a thing or two in my life I've seen what creates and what destroys I've lived like a saint and like a fiend I've hardly ever even thought twice regrets, i've had so many but none should ever be dwelled on a rule that's followed can quickly be ignored just as quickly gone lies, and truths realized are the most bitter pills to swallow some mislead, some bathe in greed and you'll find their souls are hollow i found this out so long ago a seed of doubt was planted so i reaped reward and paid the price i was left to my own device the sins of the world are everyone's concern we can all watch it burn light a fire for the sinners but make it bright let's illuminate the night a flesh wound to show for the decade of gore a horror that only has more in store the perfect plan for all that ran stampede of the rightous doing what they can i found this out so long ago a seed of doubt was planted so i reaped reward and paid the price i was left to my own device

So many times they tried to turn out this light when there was nothing left to give, nothing left inside Now close your eyes you've lost all control Years of acceptance have taken their toll Hopes for a better tomorrow, goodness comes and goes The pain that seethes internal, no one will ever know Just search inside to find what might be left Tried with all your might, endless strength and deft But when it comes down to it sometimes interests clash Relentless viruses inside have attached We're all zombies in this implacable game look out for yourself you might be next to blame Time is a way to measure misery The last thing you'll see is this vacancy subtle decomposition explains a real resolve a born enhancer a reason to be enthralled we're all enthralled The need for recognition slips past contempt for the real solution which is recklessness a symptom of regression passes wildly a vision of true wisdom perches gracefully oh so gracefully how many ways can i rely on passing time to wash away the scars, i've endured in my mind a misfortune faced with reality now disappointment as far as eyes can see i search internal and prepare my listless self i raise the questions, the questions you'd beg in hell the reward for my acts of heroine anticipation for when all this starts again Had I known what was in store i would have seen all the pleasure sweating out of my pores I know that I, I acted primally to see beauty the beauty of the acts that saints deplore right now I'm ready, I'm ready for the world to see that all we really are is distant tranquility I'd beg but i'm proud and i want to feel the pain this act of courage speaks to everything that i've gained
