Track Name: Save Me
Walled around
Peek through the cracks on the cold ground
They all said save me
Save me

He says folks like us are no good
And just because you can be free that doesn't mean you should
The time we have left is a high price to pay
Always get carried away, so save me

Breathe in
It all ends tonight
You can leave it alone
Was never worth the fight
Coming down from who I didn't want to be
Saw what I went there to see

Take me along wherever you will go
I can still belong, you probably know
I was running away before I found you
Now I want something I can run to
So save me
Track Name: Gloria
There's whispering behind me, I'm surrounded now I think
But it's only cause they want me to get well
And they ask me how long have you been like this? Have you considered Jesus?
He loves you and he'd hate to have to throw you into hell

So I give them all the freak show they've been lining up to see
And watch them look so stern while they discuss my case
They tell themselves he's probably a liar and his secrets will come out
So hold him down and pray again, if he wants hell then here's a taste

Gloria
Do you remember me?
Gloria
I spent all my future to buy a new past but that name and that number hang on
Gloria

They don't know what to think and so I lock my eyes on them and laugh
Though the voice that's screaming sounds a lot like mine
I say just look how far we've traveled and it's only morning yet
Spend the day with me and see the beast you look so hard to find


Then they scrape out all my insides in a sacred pantomime
That leaves me flopping like a fish that still won't die
And when I'm leaving I come over and I shake their hands again
And say next sunday if you want to you can give another try


Find the right words to say
Figure out the kind of words that Jesus would have prayed
Cause a demon can take fifteen years to rip out of its home
But if you're lucky it won't find you when it goes
You're so lucky I can't find you

Gloria
Do you remember me?
Gloria
I spent all my future to buy a new past but that name and that number hang on
Gloria
Track Name: It'll Be Alright
You promised me you'd share your secret
You wrote it down and I tried to read it
But when I'm close enough, the letters waver
They can't resolve

If you can't go around you have to go through
If I can't have her then I guess I'll take you
So breathe it deep, it'll be alright, it'll be alright, it'll be alright
One more time it's gonna be alright

They marked you out from a long way away
A child of the cold and the dark and the blood
But it isn't enough, there's scars that never heal
You need it again

If you can't go around you have to go through
If I can't have her then I guess I'll take you
So breathe it deep, it'll be alright, it'll be alright, it'll be alright
One more time it's gonna be alright

We came together then we took to the road
Agents of chaos going out through the world
Where the seed takes root gonna rise above it all

And maybe there's hope to be found in death
Can you ever forgive me? was his dying breath
Bright eyes in the mirror, you could only look away

If you can't go around you have to go through
If I can't have her then I guess I'll take you
So breathe it deep, it'll be alright, it'll be alright, it'll be alright
One more time it's gonna be alright
Track Name: So Goodbye
You say you're feeling better now and then
You say you think it's time to start again
So goodbye

We say we'll see a movie or a show
Talk about it even though we'll probably never go
It feels good to imagine we're ok
Imagination makes up for a lot that we can't say
So goodbye

You look at me as though I should have seen this coming long before today
But we both know it's easier when things are bad to look the other way

You say you're feeling better now and then
You say you think it's time to start again
So goodbye

This isn't like a friendship anymore
You say it's not the fight that matters, it's the way that I keep score
I could have tried to change myself for you
But I never was much good at things I didn't want to do
So goodbye
Track Name: Need More Time
They're at the door again
Can our friend come out to play?
I close the door again
Maybe soon, but not today

I need more time
I need more time

I sing your song again
To a photograph of you
But something's wrong again
So many things I have to do

I need more time
I need more time

My thoughts inside the picture frame
I wish I'd stayed
Each day I think I look the same
But all things fade

I need more time
I need more time
I need more time
Track Name: Getting By
Feeling under the weather, lost in my head but I'm getting by, getting by
It's two in the morning, holding my breath and still I'm getting by

Went to the window, couldn't see through the rain
Everything's different, but you were just the same

Maybe love is for certain, and maybe it's not, well I used to care, used to care
If you look for an exit, find a way out, well I hope I see you there

Words that were spoken couldn't stand the light of day
You must love the life that's coming to throw the one you have away

Flowers were growing through cracks along the floor
Cobwebs were lining the walls
And you said you almost could go back to how things had been
Didn't seem that long at all

In my dream we were talking but you didn't understand
I told you what I needed, but it wasn't what you planned

All these lives that are changing and you'll never know but I'm getting by, getting by
We split at the crossroads a long time ago and still I'm getting by
Track Name: Hollow
What's gone and what should not come back
Contradictions spin too quickly to unpack
The memory alone still warms your fingers and your toes
Hold on to the memory cause there it goes

You're never alone while your friends stand by you
And you've been alone for a long time
You're starting to run out of things to try you're
Starting to think that your future's as bad as mine

And what goes up must come down again
And you know I'll never answer all those messages you send
But this way no one will see when you fall down
It's better I'm not around in the end

What do we do when the walls that we built on are hollow?
Cover it over and try to look away
The surface is bright but the taste is too bitter to swallow
Hope that we won't be caught in the light of day

You can cover your eyes if it would stop all the hurting
Drop your guard for a minute and you start to crack
It's what you expected but it wasn't worth it
You get what you ask for and you try to take it back
Track Name: All For One
Said goodbye and he left for the war
Told us he was the chosen one
His eyes are bright and his future is sure
But this fighting is never done

Come and see the world with me
Find the place we're meant to be
All for one and one for all
But I swear I won't hear the call

Now he's gone and we'll cover the blame
Only did what we had to do
Every time it comes out the same
Every time seems there's nothing new

See there's danger everywhere
More than there's ever been
If we fight with all we have
They'll never rise again

Come and see the world with me
Find the place we're meant to be
All for one and one for all
But I swear I won't hear the call
Track Name: Far Ahead
One for the turnaround, the comeback that's never to be
Look down the road and remember there's more things to see
It's never quite right, there's too many and sometimes too few
If you see that time coming remember it's not meant for you

Open up and you can come in
Back to the way, the way that it always has been
From the day you were born you've been trying to outrun your fate
You'd better go home while you can, before it's too late

Look in the shadows for something that couldn't be there
Believing the things you were told till you're gasping for air
Never quite knowing but always suspecting the worst
But we're face to face now and I'm damned if I'm blinking first

Always the blank space, the wondering if this time we'll stay
Can't see that far ahead but maybe we'll find the way
Track Name: Let The World Fall Down
Can you see clearly and do you remember my name?
It's been years now but I can't forget
Should I have smiled at you, should I have known what to say?
But you knew for the both of us, taking my hand you said

Let the world fall down
Let the world fall down

The truth will be known and the good conquers over the bad
But that's only a story we tell
Why should we bother with games when it's all such a mess
Should we make this life better or just close our eyes

And let the world fall down
Let the world fall down

Hard to explain all the time that I spent looking forward to what you would say
It took years more of silence to clear out my head
I know what I saw and I meant what I said when I wished that I never had known
But it's making sense now that I'm out on my own

You speak to me gently but that doesn't change what you mean
Only so many words for goodbye
You're so full of love, you say, that's why you left us behind
If my love was just pure enough, I'd see it too

And I'd let the world fall down
Let the world fall down
