Track Name: All Roads Lead To Rome
I know all the little games you play
there's so much hate in all the things we say
I know I should never wait around,
but it's never enough for us.

Taking all we want until it's dying before
we can break these chains away
that bind us to our never ending ways

Feeding doubt in what you think is nothing but a
false hood for the plague that will consume us all

Never wait for all the chaos to seep inside
all these wretched lies

Standing here at the crossroad of every principle
I wish I had another shot to take
and never let my pride fall down
when all these roads
they lead to Rome

I know all the little games you play
there's so much hate in all the things we say
I know I should never wait around,
but it's never enough for us.

I'm dying to know if you're there
so why should I
why should I care?

Take your promises with you to the grave
it doesn't matter anymore
no matter how many times I say it anymore

I can't breathe, I can't see
no matter what you're telling me
will you let me go away

Never felt safe while I'm suffocating
(while I'm suffocating)
Will you let me go.

Standing here at the crossroad of every principle
I wish I had another shot to take
and never let my pride fall down
when all these roads
they lead to Rome

I know all the little games you play
and it will never be enough
and it will never be enough
Track Name: Another Memory
Turn around
exactly where we left it all
these fragments of a story to tell
mapped out like we knew it all
and yet we're staring at the same four walls

it is all repeating
and i feel so defeated
and I don't know
how much i can take
it's holding me in front of the same four walls

I've got something to say to you
(you never failed me)
living your life like it's ending now
It's all the same for us
it's just a matter of time
and we never want to say goodbye

Don't wait for anyone
to tell you that your own path
is not as good as everyone else's
you're not alone anymore
we need to let go of our own fear that

it is all repeating
and i feel so defeated
and I don't know
how much i can take
it's holding me in front of the same four walls

I've got something to say to you
(you never failed me)
living your life like it's ending now
I's all the same for us
it's just a matter of time
and we never want to say goodbye

Where did I go wrong
(I wish I could've saved you)
It's a lonely path that we will follow
(no you're not all alone)
always waiting for
(another memory)
so we don't feel alone

I'm learning to become an escape artist
To get away, to run away, from the day
I need to, I need to, oh I just fucking need
To get away, to get away, to get away.

I've got something to say to you
(you never failed me)
living your life like it's ending now
It's all the same for us
it's just a matter of time
and we never want to say goodbye

Where did I go wrong
its a lonely path that we will follow
no more waiting idly
for this different side of me
but we could always count on
how to beat this side of me
if we will fall and never reach the stars
that's never enough for me.......
Track Name: Riptide
With my eyes
I set my sights on harder things now
It's more than you guessed at
I'm never gonna be backing down
I can barely keep this roar down
I know the rest of you feel it
while you're watching and judging

I've been made to see the light
and it's been shaping and changing
just who we are

When you're faced with disgust
(It never feels the same)
Will you stand and find out
(What you're really made of)

We're just waiting for a savior
And if I don't stand up shouting an answer
when will you do something for yourself
and if nothing changes now
while you question all the hows
then you make the same silent mistake
we all fall into these days
there is only one way out.

With my eyes
I set my sights on harder things now
It's more than you guessed at
I'm never gonna be backing down
I can barely keep this roar down
I know the rest of you feel it
while you're watching and judging

With my eyes
I set my sights on harder things now
It's more than you guessed at
I'm never gonna be backing down
I can barely keep this roar down
I know the rest of you feel it
while you're watching and judging
With my eyes
I set my sights on harder things now
It's more than you guessed at
I'm never gonna be backing down
I can barely keep this roar down
I know the rest of you feel it
while you're watching and judging
Track Name: Searching For An Answer
So give me a reason to stay
(this time I can never let it go)
crashing down on the waves
(I am crashing)
The tides that kept me under, left to wonder
Every day that passes me
gives me just a little bit more hope
that I can save this all
(with just taking one step back)

Every time you tear, and rip away
Every bit of dignity, and now there's nothing left
to say for you, to let them know
Our time is up, but you're still holding on.
(to love)
You're still holding on
oh yes you're still holding on.

Waiting
(for a different answer)
and looking
(for another way out)
I'm finding that there's nothing else
that can change my mind.

I see the tears you're holding back
but you were always good at
pretending the laughter
it never really mattered

Turn away the best of me
burning away the last chance of hope
that we know
that we owe.

Every time you tear, and rip away
Every bit of dignity, and now there's nothing left
to say for you, to let them know
Our time is up, but you're still holding on.

Left in sight, I want to burn this light
and watch it burn inside
(I watched it burn...)
Tear and rip away,
every bit of dignity
every thing you said to me
no you'll never, never be the same.

So turn around, things will never stay the same
So turn around, things will never stay the same
But if you turn around, things will never stay the same,
but if you never turn around, things will never ever change!

I know you'll tear every piece of my inspiration
Hollowed and hidden, like the truth that you want to believe in
And I feel so lost and broken
(Hollowed and hidden, like the truth that you want to believe in)

Every time you tear, and rip away
Every bit of dignity, and now there's nothing left
to say for you, to let them know
Our time is up, but you're still holding on.
Every time you tear, and rip away
Every bit of dignity, and now there's nothing left
to say for you, to let them know
Our time is up, but you're still holding on.
Track Name: The Price We Pay
I'm stuck believing you seduction
feeling like I've got no sign of protection
every time I see that look
it's just a matter of time before I step out of line
but it never occurred to me
that I'm a mess just like you

Save your promises
for all the ones that believe them
I'm well on my way
to letting this go

Some days I stare so long
that I can just feel my body freeze
but I'd never perceive
all the things that could be
I just want to break this cycle

Save your promises
for all the ones that believe them
I'm well on my way
to letting this go

Facing an un-warranting change
it's our fears that will keep us in line
but the pressure will never prevent us
from realizing we are the lines
that are drawn in the sand
and there's not one single moment
that will bind and define

Save your promises
for all the ones who believe them
Save your promises
for all the ones who believe them
It's killing me
and I don't need to be
stuck in this lie
We've given so much
and fractured our pride
The price we pay
it's never enough
to carry all our regrets!
