Track Name: Snake Oil
They peddle dreams to the uninformed
A blink of an eye and the heart is torn
Money and trust have parted ways
They'll drain the life right out of you
There's really nothing you can do
If you take whatever they feed you
Might be best not to keep it down
Just when you think they need you
Their hands in your pocket and they're skipping town

A sleazy smile and a beckoning call
The likes of which will end us all
Hope and faith have parted ways
They'll choke the life right out of you
There's really nothing you can do

If you take whatever they feed you
Might be best not to keep it down
Just when you think they need you
Their hands in your pocket and they're skipping town

There's a sucker born every minute...which one are you?
Don't....blink....you're on your own
Don't....blink....you're on your own
Don't....blink....you're on your own
Don't....blink....you're on your own

If you take whatever they feed you
Might be best not to keep it down
You think they really need you? Oh, come on...

If you take whatever they feed you
Might be best not to keep it down
Just when you think they need you
Their hands in your pocket and they're skipping town
You're on your own, you're on your own
You're on your own, you're on your own
Track Name: Season of Light
Seems like forever
Since we'd seen a ray of light
Sing the praises of our strength
We've proven together
We won't go down without a fight
So sing the praises of our strength
[I'll keep my eyes on the sunrise]
When it becomes too much to breathe
When it brings you to your knees
When you're begging to be free
I know that life is war sometimes


We live in the shadows
But there is no shadow without light
Sing the praises of your strength
Our time is coming
When we no longer have to fight
So sing the praises of your strength
[Keep your eyes on the sunrise]
When it becomes too much to breathe
When it brings you to your knees
When you're begging to be free
I know that life is hell...
Into the unknown fray
There's always something else to fear
But I'm still holding strong
Shouting 'I'm still here'
Into the unknown fray
There's always something else to fear
But I'm still holding strong
Screaming 'I'm still here!'


When it becomes too much to breathe
When it brings you to your knees
When you're begging to be free
I know that life is war sometimes
Track Name: Living Not Existing
Hands in the air if you’re living, not existing!


Some take comfort in never knowing
Others simply can’t accept this

Hands in the air if you’re living, not existing
Open their eyes and show them what they’re missing
Hands in the air if you’re living, not existing
Open their eyes and show them what they’re missing

Some take pleasure in never trying
Fear of failure, overwhelming

Hands in the air if you’re living, not existing
Open their eyes and show them what they’re missing
Hands in the air if you’re living, not existing
Open their eyes and show them what they’re missing

If I’m wrong, prove me wrong
If I’m wrong, prove me wrong
If I’m wrong, prove me wrong
If I’m wrong, prove me wrong


Prove...Me...Wrong


Hands in the air if you’re living, not existing
Open their eyes and show them what they’re missing
Hands in the air if you’re living, not existing
Open their eyes and show them what they’re missing
Hands in the air if you’re living, not existing
Open their eyes and show them what they’re missing
Hands in the air if you’re living, not existing
Open their eyes and show them what they’re missing
Track Name: Never Been To Vancouver
You're just a memory
That bears deleting from my existence
It's just too late for me
And now you're begging for my repentance

The wants and the needs that you feed are your own
You have what you want and yet you're all alone

I’m gonna purge you from my mind
(You’re drifting away)
Your image fades behind my eyes
(You’re drifting away)

I thought I was better than this
You've lowered me to a place I should not exist
We should both have a better life
But you're here just twisting the knife

The wants and the needs that you feed are your own
You have what you want and yet you're alone
True intentions are bleeding through
The only one you've ever cared about
Is you

I’m gonna purge you from my mind
(You’re drifting away)
Your image fades behind my eyes
(You’re drifting away)
I’m gonna get this off my chest
(You’re drifting away)
Until there’s finally nothing left

I'm gonna purge you from my mind...

I’m gonna purge you from my mind
(You’re drifting away)
Your image fades behind my eyes
(You’re drifting away)
I’m gonna get this off my chest
(You’re drifting away)
Until there’s finally nothing left
Track Name: Break Through
Second chances
Rare enough alone, even more so now, like this
A broken promise
Destroying all the trust I've earned...

Everybody makes mistakes
But everything's still out of place
One thing still rings true to me
I'm not the man that I know I'm supposed to be

No one ever wants to go through this alone
So many things for which I should atone

Endless patience
Even angels have their limits with us all
Begged
Hoping one day we all recover...

And everyone still makes mistakes
Yet everything's still out of place
I hope that they finally see
I'm trying to be the man I was meant to be

No one ever wants to go through this alone
So many things for which I should atone
I never meant to place this life on you
So...when will I break through?
Track Name: A Loss For Words
Oh, how things change
Oh, how things change

I was waiting for it
Waiting on that moment
When nothing was ever good enough
I am getting pulled in
Opposite directions
Nothing's ever good enough

I keep drowning out the screams
Everything that I once knew is gone
Nightmares turn into a dream
But only when I close my eyes

Heavy are the shoulders
That we place the blame on
When nothing's ever good enough
I keep trying to find some
Solid ground to stand on
Nothing's ever good enough

I keep drowning out the screams
Everything that I once knew is gone
Nightmares turn into a dream
But only when I close my eyes

Breathe in, breathe out
It's all that I can do
To stand on solid ground
Breathe in, breathe out
It's all that I can do
To stand on solid ground

I keep drowning out the screams
Everything that I once knew is gone
Nightmares turn into a dream
But even when I close my eyes...

They fall

They fall, one at a time
They fall, one at a time
They fall, one at a time
They fall, one at a time
They fall
Track Name: You're Gone
You may not even know it yet
I've been, tracking you for miles
You think I won't catch up to you
That's fine, all I've got is time...


Cause all that we know, all that we know
Is one way or another, you're gone
All that we know, all that we know
One way or another, you're gone


I'll put the fear of God in you
I can smell it in your bones
How do you think it's gonna feel
Crawling, on your knees alone


Your blood, leads me right to you
I promise I will not be kind
You know, just how far I've come
When all I've got left is time...


Cause all that we know, all that we know
Is one way or another, you're gone
All that we know, all that we know
One way or another, you're gone


I won't make it quick
It's not mine to take
You've got a lot to lose
I know you're gonna break


Cause all that we know, all that we know
Is one way or another, you're gone
All that we know, all that we know
One way or another, you're gone


You're gone
Track Name: Dysphagia
Everybody's got their demons,
But yours seem to shadow the rest
They shadow the rest
You seem to think that you're a savior
But it's not over yet
It's not over yet

You're on the wrong side
The writing's on the wall
Pride comes before the fall
You will see your demise
You're on the wrong side
I will watch you fall
Yes I will watch you as you fall
I will see your demise come true

Unraveled thread,
But what did you expect?
Silver tongues still tarnish in the sunlight
I still shine through,
With your hands around my neck
It's not hard to see that

You're on the wrong side
The writing's on the wall
Pride comes before the fall
You will see your demise
You're on the wrong side
I will watch you fall
Yes I will watch you as you fall
I will see your demise come true

Chemical cannibal, demagogue with thinly veiled motives
Chemical cannibal, a demagogue with no remorse

You're on the wrong side
The writing's on the wall
Pride comes before the fall
You will see your demise
You're on the wrong side
I will watch you fall
Yes I will watch you as you fall
I will see your demise…

Everybody's got their demons,
But yours seem to shadow the rest
They shadow the rest
You seem to think that you're a savior
But it's not over yet
It's not over yet

Chemical cannibal, you're a demagogue with thinly veiled motives
Chemical cannibal, a demagogue with no remorse
Track Name: Black Diamonds
It all begins with a single seed of doubt
Perpetuating growth, until it turns us inside out
Shadows grasping hold, and pulling further down
Taking nearly everything to turn it all around

Forged in flames is what we are
Tempered by the wounds and scars
We’re different now
No looking back on yesterday

The siege continues
The battle’s not yet lost
No risk for no reward
Effort far exceeds the cost
Shadows grasping hold, and pulling further down
Taking nearly everything to turn it all around

Forged in flames is what we are
Tempered by the wounds and scars
We’re different now
No looking back on yesterday

No looking back

Forged in flames is what we are
Tempered by the wounds and scars
We’re different now
No looking back on yesterday
Track Name: Rise
Here we go!


Geared up, let’s go, they’re closing in fast
With the speed of a thousand atomic blasts
They’ll try to take this world from us
Not gonna happen, because


We rise, never backing down from a fight
We fall, but only after finding the light
We’ll rise again just to take it all


10 million volts running through our veins
The enemy thinks that it’s a game
They’ll never take it away because


They’ve underestimated us


We rise, never backing down from a fight
We fall, but only after finding the light
We’ll rise again just to take it all


Rise, Rise……….


We rise, never backing down from a fight
We fall, but only after finding the light
We’ll rise again just to take it all

Gonna take it all
Rise
Track Name: Drown
Every lie salts the wound a little further
Even though I know you're trying to help
And the best way that you can help at this point in time
Is just for you to say goodbye



With nothing to hold onto
I'm sinking further down
Every fiber of my being knows that
I will drown
The waves are unrelenting
And I can’t hear a sound
Every fiber of my being knows that
I will drown


Late one night a dream awoke me
When I thought I'd already gone
A small light caught my eye at the bottom of the hill
And something told me that I'm not quite done
That small light that kept me going
Eight some-odd years ago today
All that's left for me to do at this point in time
Is to gather the courage to say



With nothing to hold onto
I'm sinking further down
Every fiber of my being knows that
I won’t drown
The waves are unrelenting
But then again so am I
As I climb a little further
I can feel the sky


With nothing to hold onto
I'm sinking further down
Every fiber of my being knows that
I won’t drown
Track Name: Still Alive
I've seen the end in the beginning
Something hard to miss
A new beginning in the ending
The day that didn't exist...

Hands just won't stop shaking
Cold sweat permeating
And I can't seem to get a grip on anything
I feel my life draining,
The blood inside me staining
And I can't make this feeling go away

I'll keep holding on, until it's gone...

I stand alone, wondering if I'll survive,
Will I survive this?
All unknown, watching as the worlds collide,
And I…...I’m still alive

The taste is so distinctive
Atropa Belladonna
If I succumb tonight there is no turning back
Fragmented physiology
I cannot find nirvana
A glimmer of hope, when the skies are turning black

I'll keep holding on, until it's gone...

I stand alone, wondering if I'll survive,
Will I survive this?
All unknown, watching as the worlds collide,
And I……….I’m still alive'

I'll keep holding on, until it's gone...

I stand alone, wondering if I'll survive,
Will I survive this?
All unknown, watching as the worlds collide,
The day that didn't exist...
