LYRICS
Lest You Forget
Stretching the message
Claiming to be right
Second guessing
In hindsight

You’re never ready
When it’s presented
To see the other side

So unsteady
Running on empty
When it’s right behind you

All you hold that’s dear
When it all boils down, what have you found that makes you feel?

Stressing the blessings
Falling from the fight
Forgetting
To be alive

You’re never ready
When it’s presented
To see the other side

So unsteady
Running on empty
When it’s right behind you

All you hold that’s dear
When it all boils down, what have you found that makes you feel?

Makes you feel
Something real
Makes you feel
Something real

Lest you forget
All you have
Lest you forget
All you have
The Theif
Sneaking up to him
Like a thief in the night
Didn't notice the wrong
Hidden in the right
The change came from below
Reached up to him from a bottomless trench
Like an undertow

Grasp for air
You're not there
No, not yet
Hold my hand
Grab on tight
I'll take you there

For her
It never made a sound
Didn't know that she fell
Till she hit the ground
So round and round and round she goes
Not afraid to fight
To keep control

Grasp for air
You're not there
No, not yet
Hold my hand
Grab on tight
I'll take you there

Now it comes all at once
The thought that you've done wrong
Hold on
You've all that's been asked
Made peace with your past
Saved the best for last
Saved the best for last
Where You Began
How ‘bout a round of applause
For the state that we’re in
You said that you’re done
Then you do it again

I know it’s coming down hard
I know that you’re stretched thin
But we’re falling apart
And it’s time to dig in

So let the fear go
Let the feeling sink in
Soak it up like a sponge
Get back to where you began

Get a grip on your soul
Find yourself in your skin
You can decide to fold
Or you can push it all in

So let the fear go
Let the feeling sink in
Soak it up like a sponge
Get back to where you began
Path to a Lie
It's all that I can take
I still pay for my great mistake
Why? Well you can state your case
That all that comes before leads us to today
The past, I know, it can't be changed
The present - now - must be faced
It's a waste to contemplate
I've learned to ignore the words you say
Shame on you for your mistake
Shame on you for the mirage that everything's ok
We all know. We all say.
Shame on you for who you are and the lies that you create
Oh...it's not about me
The tragedy is he. And the way that they treat
I fell helpless. Hopeless.
How can you excuse your neglect and your abuse
Shame on you for your mistake
Shame on you for the mirage that everything's ok
We all know. We all say.
Shame on you for who you are and the lies that you create
You'd have us believe
That you've done all you can
It never was your plan at all
The path to a lie
Comes from telling yourself you are justified
Don't deny that you lie
You'd have us believe
That you've done all you can
It never was your plan at all
The path to a lie
Comes from telling yourself you are justified
Don't deny that you lie
Shame on you for your mistake
Shame on you for the mirage that everything's ok
We all know. We all say.
Shame on you for who you are and the lies that you create
Shame on you
Tales of Hate
A century away, oh what will they say?
Tales of hate that are today.
How can we erase the patterns that are in place?
The need to hate that is today
Brace yourself
For you've left behind is empty
A cold reminder of hatred
All your seeds grown in greed
Cultivate tales of hate
What did you think would become of your rage?
Seeds obey the actions you take
How do you make that face?
The face that you fake
The face of hate
It resonates
Maybe one day
You'll see before too late
Tales of hate
You made them stay
Brace yourself
Wake yourself
Make yourself
Change yourself
All your seeds grown in greed
Cultivate tales of hate
What did you think would become of your rage?
Seeds obey the actions you take
The Light
Pay in full
You show your age
Now it's time to reap all that you've sown
Taken back to what you had known
You've forget this
You've ignored it too long
Don't go to sleep
There's a chance you won't make it through the night
Don't go on me
You must fight
Fight to see the light
See the light
Going back
To where you've come from
Only now you see the damage you've done
Awaken now to present state
All your ignorance full on display
Don't go to sleep
There's a chance you won't make it through the night
Don't go on me
You must fight
Fight to see the light
See the light
Don't count on me
To be your guide
Don't count on me
To stay by your side
Don't go to sleep
There's a chance you won't make it through the night
Don't go on me
You must fight
Fight to see the light
See the light
Survived
Always looking for another way
Always looking for another taste
Can't be content to stay in place
Can't close your eyes for just one day
So sad to see as you waste away
Sad to see that its common place
I hate to see you when you're in this state
I hate to be the one that has to say
Fast track to an early death
Slow down and catch your breath
Look around before you take step
Think it through, cause I know you should have died
How do you survive?
What's this behavior that you celebrate?
Why feel the need to imitate?
So settled in your ways
Can you stop? Is it too late?
Blank stare and a vacant laugh
No clue to where you're at
Spoken words that you forget
You never cared I know you could have
Fast track to an early death
Slow down and catch your breath
Look around before you take step
Think it through, cause I know you should have died
How do you survive?
It's Not My Time
From the early days of life I always knew this could be how I died
But now that it is time, I cry as I climb to say goodbye
But how could this be right?
When I still have my mind, inside
Old…
Just my bones, but not my soul
Told…
This is the way that you must go
No…
I knew this would not last
But time goes by so fast, leaves me behind
Now I’m wishing for what’s past
Shadows have been cast. The end is nigh.
But how could this be right?
When I still have my mind, inside
Old…
Just my bones, but not my soul
Told…
This is the way that you must go
No…
It’s not my time. It’s not my time.
It’s not my time. Not my time to die.
It’s not my time. It’s not my time.
It’s not my time. It’s not my time to die.
They say my usefulness is gone
Time belongs to the young
All I hoped for was in vain
All these dreams never became anything
It’s not my time.
