Track Name: At World's End
Set this world on fire
I spoke to you for hours
The curtain’s still coming up
But the feelings all burnt and scattered
I’ve sailed this ship into the ground
And it’s not the first time it has happened

We’re at the point
Where all the words just sound the same
All this means is none of us have even learnt

Come on
We have learnt to rip it off
Turn it off
Cut it out
We have learnt to rip it off
Track Name: 22
These satellites
Are watching me move
To the core of these lies
And I’m trying to prove
My innocence is true
But they’re laughing at me
And there’s nothing to do
But walk this straight line

I’m jumping through hoops
This can’t be right
I’m starting to slide
No, this isn’t right

You can’t be serious
These numbers are nightmares
How do you sleep through this
Your thinking is madness

The illusion is masked
You look quite the part
You’re the man on the hill
So there’s no need to prove
If you’re innocence is true
And we’re laughing at you
Cause there is nothing for us
But to walk this straight line


I’m jumping through hoops
This can’t be right
I’m starting to slide
No, this isn’t right

You can’t be serious
These numbers are nightmares
How do you sleep through this
Your thinking is madness
Track Name: These Lights
All the lights that shine
I'm still blinded
I'm shaking at the knees
And I can't stand straight
I'm frightened I'll do something wrong
Without thinking

All this love
I can't do anything tonight

Standing at the bottom of the stairs
Looking back up at us
How did we come to this
I never thought it would happen this way
I know I've done something wrong
I was not thinking

All this love
I can't do anything tonight.
Track Name: Switch
Time combs through lies
Like a broken record I sound
When I try to explain
That I cannot explain

You photographed
Then put the picture
Up on the wall
It reminds me of how
Things could be good

Each night when I’m closing my eyes
And try to escape
I know that I
Cannot ignore
This anymore

It sounds a lot
Like a broken
Record I know
When I try to explain
That I cannot explain

Can’t switch it off
I can’t switch it off
And I wish that I could
Track Name: Broken Bones
This endless ride has got me I know
I've been holding by a thread
Falling towards the end
But I have been held by a thousand hands
Oh I know that something is wrong
And I know that something is right

We can scream out loud
‘Cause we're all on this ride I know

I've been breaking my bones
Holding up the stars
Oh I'll keep falling flat on my face
Just to know that I'm still alive
Yesterday I was king
But today I'm not sure

Oh I know that something is wrong
And I know that something is right

We can scream out loud
‘Cause we're all on this ride

We can scream out loud
‘Cause we're all on this ride

‘Cause we’re all on this ride
Track Name: Raise My Hands
Underneath the starlight
I raised my hands
In the middle of the high times
I felt the thread

Coming undone
Love it comes and goes
Love, this time
I’m going to change the rules

All of these beginnings
They always seem to end
Doesn’t it feel so cruel
That we’re still standing here

Coming undone
Love it comes and goes
But this time
I’m going to change the rules

Coming undone
Love comes and goes
Love, this time
I’m going to change the rules
Track Name: Diplomat
Don’t try to fight
Don’t try to hide
You are what they want
I know that all right
You look so good tonight
Don’t want to wake from this dream of mine

Don’t lose your faith
Is what I wanted to say

It’s our time
Open up your eyes
We can stand to make things right
You get what you want
Yeah what you want
If it’s hell you want then its hell you’ll get

Don’t lose your faith
Is what I wanted to say

The world turns
Indifferently
So just let go
Just let go

Don’t lose your faith
Is what I wanted to say

I want to breath
I want to live
To hold my head up to the sky
I want to see
I want to hear
I want to know what’s going on
And I’ll sing my song
Will not sweep it all aside

And you look so good tonight
Don’t want to wake from this dream of mine
Track Name: December
Leaving through the front door
Dressed up for your eyes
And I hope that you’ll see me

Walking down the back streets
And all that’s on my mind
Is seeing you some how

Faces in the hallway
All look like strangers
And the crowd starts to form

Silence is stronger than words

I remember
Talking with you
And the dice began to roll
So I kept my fingers crossed

December fading quickly
In last hours of this night
I kept no thoughts from fading

Silence is stronger than words
Track Name: Pretty Little Thing
I found a place that we can go
To get away from this howling wind
We’ll slow right down and be on our own
When this racing world gets out of hand

Pretty little thing
You’re such a pretty little thing

I found a girl to take me home
I’ve seen her eyes on the other side
We’ll slow right down and be on our own

Pretty little thing
Such a pretty little thing
Track Name: Sinking Like Stone
Some kind of dream
You’re unkind words
Do you ever just
Walk away
And head for the door

Buried inside
Sinking like stone
Forget who I am
Drifting away

How quickly it unfolds
How far we fall
Does it ever just
Work out all right
Let you believe

Buried inside
Sinking like stone
Forget who I am
Drifting away
Track Name: Home Of The Tired
Slow Down
Don’t pull down the blindfold
Your time isn’t up yet
Go on go home

Darling
This love that you’re tasting
These thoughts that you’re thinking
Well its not love at all

Wise up
These plans that you’re making
These moves that you’re taking
You’re just running away

Wake up
The mask that you’re wearing
The fool that you’re acting
You’re just hiding away
Track Name: Disappear
You walked around
Carrying more than your head could hold
Body wounded this world is inside out
What the hell is going on
Around here
Just give me a minute to gather my thoughts

Disappear now

You fell apart
And all I could do was break down
You woke me up to this world I didn’t want o see
I feel so sick to be standing here right now
And you whispered words that I couldn’t understand

Disappear Now
Disappear Now

Catching all that’s thrown
Catching all that’s thrown
Catching all that’s thrown
