Track Name: Silhouettes
You've taken everything I believe and made it out to deceive
You stand for nothing, and now you're all to blame, just to get a little fame
I am living proof, so pay attention, I'll only say this once

Make me out to be everything I'm not
I can feel your eyes dancing on me
So many years you've been fueling this fire
But now your light is expired so here comes the kerosene
Can you feel that storm coming, setting fire to the sky
And as the ashes fall, I'll watch your glory burn before your eyes

Hey! Hey! I'm talking to you!

I just want to wake this music up from the dead
I'm going to make them eat those words and criticism that they said
And right before their eyes, I will stand with my brothers at my side
So here's the truth, we're coming for you
This world is mine tonight, tonight

Come on, come on, gimme your best shot
Come on, motherfucker

Label me as whatever you wish,
I did whatever it took just to get me ahead
How can you say your music has soul?
What have you done to my rock and roll?
What have you done to my rock and roll?

You're not alone, do you trust me?
We've gone a little too far to turn back now
And I know, it's disgusting
But one by one we'll take these motherfuckers down
Even the greatest will fade,
At the end of the day, you'll just be another face
In the crowd looking up at me
I've got years to achieve everything that I wanted to be
And I'm not burning out, no, I'm not giving in
Your youth is slipping, and I'm taking your place in the end
Track Name: Close Your Eyes
Close your eyes
Raise your hands

Caught in a free fall, it's time to step up
Breathing deep, holding tight
This is everything you want
And you don't know, what you're capable of
So much more than before
Your faith fails
It's the way you speak of how you used to be
A has been, stuck up, whirlwind of a teenage drama queen
She's got the bottle to her teeth, a toxic personality
Dead on the inside, missing who she wants to be

Close your eyes
To think that I've been wasting time
No, not this time
Raise your hands
I'm not giving up yet
Until there's nothing left

She's scratching at the bedroom door
As I pull the shades shut
I wish I would've known her name
I wish I would've known your name
I won't play your wicked game
Can you hear the sound from six feet underground?
You're egotistic, cynical, your faith fails you now
Can you hear the sound from six feet underground?
Your faith fails you now

This is it, you had it all, just before your luck ran out
Take my hand, hold on tight, careful baby, don't look down

The difference between you and me, is I'm exactly who I claim to be
You're just another fake, sucking on someone else's fame
We are...the last line of defense
You are...affiliated by ignorance
Step up, show me what you're made of
Show me what you're made of

Put your money where your mouth is
Track Name: Where I Want To Be
Is this the end of us, she said
I need a fix to scratch that itch
The walls are closing in again
Surrounded by the ghost of them
A second chance, a second glance
Is what you want, I can't convince
Myself to give you what you need
In the morning I'll still be leaving

Here, I can't stay
I'm sorry it has to be this way

But I'll be okay, don’t you worry about a thing
'Cause when you start to worry a little hope gets lost in me
And don’t speak, because these words are killing me
And when the world stops turning, this is where I want to be

Oh here we go again, my dear
These words they sink with hopes unhinged
I think it's really over
Yeah, I think it's really over now
The flame we had is burning out
I'm taking pictures off the shelf
Take it out on me...
And I swear to god I'll be the man you never saw in me

I'll be okay, don’t you worry about a thing
'Cause when you start to worry a little hope gets lost in me
And don’t speak, because these words are killing me
And when the world stops turning, this is where I want to be

And I came out swinging
When these walls closed in around me
All the shit that I neglected
Just excuses made protection
And I...
I came out swinging , when my world fell to pieces
We both know this isn't working and there's nothing left for me here anymore
I came out swinging

Do you remember when we were invincible, whole lives ahead of us?
Forever unstoppable, do you remember, do you remember then?
Track Name: Suit Up
A single word could save my life
Yeah!

This is the last chance I’ll get to make a list of my regrets
No matter how short it is, I'll never live it down
And as the sun starts to set, and all the skyscrapers become silhouettes
Tell me this isn’t over yet…

Now I won’t quit, until I get away with this
Revenge is always bittersweet

So cross my heart, and hope to die
I buried you here long ago, hope to watch you choke on all your lies
Cross my heart, and hope to die
These words you gasped will be your last
You’re running out of time

A single word could save my life, but you refused to look my way
Everything you wanted, but you chose to give away

I won't speak ill of the dead...
But you're not there yet
Fuck!

Make me proud, I’ll put you in the ground
This grave will be the last you’ll ever dig, bitch!
Hold on, I’ll help you
Slit your own throat

You can't break me down
Cause I've lost everything
Reaching for anything

So cross my heart, and hope to die
I buried you here long ago, hope to watch you choke on all your lies
Cross my heart, and hope to die
These words you gasped will be your last
You’re running out of time...
A single word could save my life
But you refused to look my way
It's everything you wanted, but you chose to give away
Track Name: Death Of Me
There's nothing left here, for you but atmosphere
This needle loaded with a creeping dose

I wander through what I once called home
A past confused with the futures unknown
Smoke fills the air, I breathe it in
With fire my lungs, I have come undone

This is for the love, for the hope we never had
For the words we never spoke, to a thousand empty promises
Whispers fill my ears, beating out my chest
Baby, you'll be the death of me

How will my voice carry tonight?
Will I wake up, will I make it out alive?
Give me a chance, I will survive
Will I wake up, will you save my life?

Consequences played out before anything else
We saw the end before really had a chance to feel this
Mistakes could ink pen to paper
These memories only remain long after
Their expectations
Lost in translation

And this is for the love, this is for the hope
For the hope!
For the words we never spoke, to a thousand empty promises
My heart's done it's best, beating out my chest
Oh baby, you know you'll be the death of me
