(Verse)
I open up,
but nothing comes out
Dissecting every part of me
But all that's left is doubt
Memories fading
Your face is just a blur
And my savior's jaded
My life is impure

(Pre-Chorus)
Don't act like you never knew
That I had my time
Now I don't want to discover
What's left inside

(Chorus)
Burn me alive
Empty my soul
Immortalized in the flames,
Raptures what I know.
I say goodbye
This is the end, my friend
Just light the flame, crack a smile
And now you can pretend

(Verse 2)
I taste the blood
But I can't spit it out
I sense the anesthetic
Rushing through my brain
Can't tell all my regrets
And the sun won't shine on me
Pray that they may let,
God forgive me

(Pre-Chorus)
Don't act like you never knew
That I had my time
Now I don't want to discover
What's left inside

(Chorus)
Burn me alive
Empty my soul
Immortalized in the flames,
Raptures what I know.
I say goodbye
This is the end, my friend
Just light the flame, crack a smile
And now you can pretend

(Second Chorus)
It seems in life, your merriment
Is as empty as our shells
Spirits of the damned are false
And in our thoughts, they won't know
That we never cared, never will
Harder than before
So burn me alive, empty my soul

(Build up)
It seems in life, your merriment
Is as empty as our shells
Forced into a membership
And our thoughts they'll never tell
If you don't care and never will
Just let me know
So you can burn me alive

(Verse 3)
I hold the bar
But it's cold and too high
The demons play inside of me
Kill my chance to fly
Oh the things I will give
But the priest won't say my name
Just another reject
Dying in his shame

(Pre-Chorus)
Don't act like you never knew
That I had my time
Now I don't want to discover
What's left inside

(Chorus)
Burn me alive
Empty my soul
Immortalized in the flames,
Raptures what I know.
I say goodbye
This is the end, my friend
Just light the flame, crack a smile
And now you can pretend

(Second Chorus)
It seems in life, your merriment
Is as empty as our shells
Spirits of the damned are false
And in our thoughts, they won't know
That we never cared, never will
Harder than before
So burn me alive, empty my soul
So burn me alive, show me how you always knew
Burn me alive

Burn Me Alive

(Verse)
I don't want to say goodbye
And the pain feels like
That I have no blood in my veins
As I watch you walk away
I hope we'll see again someday
How can I get so far
From something so perfect
When it's meant to be this way
As you look at me
I feel you touch something within


(Pre-Chorus)
I hope I could see through your eyes
And see all the pain you feel and be
A bit more confident in you and me
But "I love you" is more than enough


(Chorus)
Play this game for me
Open up your eyes and see
How the world will unfold eventually
And that there's no regret
In every step we take
And our hearts don't have to break


(Verse 2)
I promise I won't be -
So paranoid next time
In every essence I -
Feel the watching eyes
But with you, I don't need to be so blind
As you take my hand
Try not to think too much
For it will spoil what has opened up
And I know you live by -
All the watching eyes
But with me, you don't have to be so afraid


(Bridge)
Try
Don't let go of your sanity
Say your heart beats only for me
Wondering how much longer it'll be
But I promise you that we will be set free


(Chorus)
Play this game for me
Open up your eyes and see
How the world will unfold eventually
And that there's no regret
In every step we take
And our hearts don't have to break
So we take this night
To feel so alive
So sublime in our last right
And there is no end that I can see
So play this game for me


(Lead)
As we take this night
To feel so alive, so sublime
I met you and it felt so right
And wondered how I was previously able to be, but I see
That you were the best in every being
As well as I know this feeling
And these words may not be appealing
But the paved road of life is revealing
And we can make it all the way


(Final Chorus)
Play this game for me
Open up your eyes and see
How the world will unfold eventually
And that there's no regret
In every step we take
And our hearts don't have to break
So we take this night
To feel so alive
So sublime in our last right
And there is no end, that I can see
I love you, so I beg you
Play this game with me

Play This Game

(Intro Verse)
Can't accept the world around you
Can't here them calling your name
Looking in the mirror, and you don't know what you see
Only act when you're home alone
Only smile when their backs are turned
Separated from reality of life, can't find what spark you have left

(Chorus)
Watch your youth flow away like a lake
The borders we make, we will break
Set free to ambition and adventure
Failure your disease, your heart the cure

(Bridge)
So what is left of your days?
And how many pills did you take?
Why sit on safety for each chance to pass?
Stand up and look down through the breaking glass.

(Verse)
Hop out of the depressed cycle in bed
Everyone would rather see white than red
Every size has had achievement under their belt
There are people out there that know just how you felt

(Chorus)
Watch your youth flow away like a lake
The borders we make, we will break
Set free to ambition and adventure
Failure your disease, your heart the cure

(Verse)
You can feel dead but you're very alive
And I'm not the only one who will say you have one try
Don't open your mouth but you still tell a lie
Head is empty so your tears remain dry

(Chorus)
Watch your youth flow away like a lake
The borders we make, we will break
Set free to ambition and adventure
Failure your disease, your heart the cure

(Bridge 2)
Can't accept the world around you
Only smile when their backs are turned
Looking in the mirror, and you don't know what you see

(Chorus)
Watch your youth flow away like a lake
The boarders we make, we will break
Set free to ambition and adventure
Failure your disease, your heart the cure

(Final Chorus)
Watch your youth flow away like a lake
The borders we make, we will break
Ups and downs, it is one big swerve
Go out and live the life you deserve

The Boarders We Make

The Boarders We Make

(Verse)
No no no shut the hell up
Have you realized you're only making it worse
Don't be so quick to jump to conclusions
You'll break down more when you see the look on their face
Lay down static and twitch in place
Then seize up when the words should come
Seconds are torture and hours kill will you
How could any of this time be worth it?

(Chorus)
Choice by choice the world crumbles
No positive outlooks on the horizon
What's left of my soul gets consumed as we go along
I'm just a big example of being dead wrong

(Verse)
Oh my god oh my god what should I say?
Hold on dear I can try to explain
Let things fall exactly in place
Then maybe I can prevent another heart break
Molding the sculpture day by day
My hands are callused, covered in blood and clay
Bloodshot eyes overlook the progress
But it will never be done and I'll never digress

(Chorus)
Choice by choice the world crumbles
No positive outlooks on the horizon
What's left of my soul gets consumed as we go along
I'm just a big example of being dead wrong

(Bridge)
Let's change how we carry on this crushing guilt
Bury the past and let it stop haunting you
We are defined by all our mistakes
Our triumphs go unnoticed but this world will bend

(Verse)
I can't stop thinking of the things I did
Pulling layers of skin is my only therapy
I'm sorry love that's all I can say
I need forgiveness to hold on today
I'll listen to what you advise
Hoping I don't kick you out of my life
I always jump the gun and think I found a solution
It makes me regret everything that I speak

(Pre-Chorus)
Let's change how we carry on this crushing guilt
Bury the past and let it stop haunting you
We are defined by all our mistakes
Our triumphs go unnoticed but this world will bend

(Chorus)
Choice by choice the world crumbles
No positive outlooks on the horizon
What's left of my soul gets consumed as we go along
I'm just a big example of being dead wrong

(Outro)
I'm so cold, I feel alone
I could be better if only I had known
But I can't carry people when my flaws are shown
I have to accept that I'm on my own

Dead Wrong

(Verse)
I'm cut open wide
Blood is pouring out
I can't stop the loss
I lie down and drown in doubt
Hoping I will find forgiveness
Please don't let this leave scars
Don't let them notice this time
Wandering eyes pierce through my heart

(Chorus)
I'm wounded, I'm losing all hope
Anesthetize me, I don't wanna feel
I need more options, I can't hang from a rope
Tell me that my tears and emotions are real

(Verse)
So when did you notice
The look in my eyes
Pray for me, I'm ruined
It's the same way everyone dies
Jump from one reality to another
I sat back and asked why I bother
The calm before the storm leaves death in your throat
But the words are blurred on a bloody suicide note

(Chorus)
I'm wounded, I'm losing all hope
Anesthetize me, I don't wanna feel
I need more options, I can't hang from a rope
Tell me that my tears and emotions are real
I have chopped myself to bits
Tasted sorrow as it poured from my arms
Desperation breeds a willful death
But the will dies, and he will die

(Lead)
I've been through the worst in perception
Looking through another’s eyes is impossible
All we can do is think of ourselves
Bring light to the path and let it guide our little empathy
Hold down, pressure stops bleeding
Making gold from blood
but it blows away like dust
Diamonds aren't forever, we feel our bones rust

(Chorus)
I'm wounded, I'm losing all hope
Anesthetize me, I don't wanna feel
I need more options than hanging from a rope
Tell me that my tears and emotions are real
I have chopped myself to bits
Tasted sorrow as it poured from my arms
Desperation breeds a willful death
But the will dies, and he will die

Wounded

(Verse)
Hey everybody, gather around
Let's take a look at the new guy in town
He seems so different since last week
But his happiness is shallow and his smile is bleak
How could a creature ever be controlled,
By a chemical that seems so little
And we can ask ourselves if this is a better life
Like a facade of optimism hiding what's true

(Chorus)
Take off the mask the world gives you
Let your proper emotions and will free
Let this plague die down in this town
Just a spoonful of meds helps the headache go down

(Verse)
You can't cure a disease when you only treat the symptoms
Let the world decide what you take and now you're paralyzed
But you can't cure hunger and you can't cure the blind
All I ever see is a world that I should leave behind
I doubt these pills will ever make life worth living
Holding on to something that seems to be giving
But you can only count the seconds that they are taking
There's nothing to fight off the demons that are waking

(Chorus)
Take off the mask the world gives you
Let your proper emotions and will free
Let this plague die down in this town
Just a spoonful of meds helps the headache go down

(Outro)
Who ever told you that we’re all ok?
Probably the ones with the drugs made
But it's our fault when all we do is lie
Day by day I keep saying,
“Believe me guys, I'm fine!”

Just a Spoonful

(Verse)
I'll say this upfront, I wish you were dead
Push me out like the growth I am
Visions of you are messing up my head
I didn't think it would have this effect
I find it hard to admit that I love you
I'll break when I look into your eyes
I can't bear the signs of truth
I wish I can let these feelings die

(Chorus)
I can't believe I'm writing another song about this
There's no other way to get these thoughts out
I might miss you, and I might be missed
Such is life when I'm living in doubt

(Verse)
You are but a hollow shell in my mind
Though I still find myself to be obsessed
And I know you miss me since you're so kind
But I must let my ways be repressed
I don't want to hear my name come from that voice
Maybe I wish I can hold you again
I can still single you out amidst the noise
I look at your body and wish for peace within

(Chorus)
I can't believe I'm writing another song about this
There's no other way to get these thoughts out
I might miss you, and I might be missed
Such is life when I'm living in doubt

(Lead)
It always seemed that you're just out of reach
As I learn of you, I learn about myself
There is only so much that one person can teach
I need to move on and I don't need help

(Chorus)
I can't believe I'm writing another song about this
There's no other way to get these thoughts out
I might miss you, and I might be missed
Such is life when I'm living in doubt

Life in Doubt (Leaving You)

I know they came,
Messed things up,
And had to go,
But I care too much to say “I told you so”
I know it’s hard,
That you wanna give up,
And I can get it all right,
But you need to learn a lesson for your life to take flight

Every little purity you put forth is a lie
But you're still one of the smartest alive
Trying to make the most of your rugged path
But you don't know how easily it can be f**ked

I want to know your troubles
But I can’t bear to see you in pain
I want only the best for you
But it can be in vain
The view over the horizon is an altered state
Though I can carry you if you’re honest with me

I know you want him,
Have someone to love,
But it shouldn’t be something loose,
Because you can easily be abused
He might mean something,
Make you feel the best,
But I know it won’t last,
You’ll be tossed off like the rest

Why won’t you f**king listen
There is other outside wisdom to absorb
Trying to make out your own intellect
But you don’t know your thoughts can be shattered

I want to know your troubles
But I can’t bear to see you in pain
I want only the best for you
But it can be in vain
The view over the horizon is an altered state
Though I can carry you if you’re honest with me

Look at the world
It’s yours when you see it that way
Fixate on taking over
And leaving the traitors on their knees
I can give you power
Just take in the insanity
Life gets easier if you’re twisted
Now those close can only guess what’s next

I want to know your troubles
But I can’t bear to see you in pain
I want only the best for you
But it can be in vain
The view over the horizon is an altered state
Though I can carry you if you’re honest with me

I’ll f**k myself up in loyalty
But you still won’t dare f**king with me
I want nothing in your way
I’ll make those who’ve hurt you pay
The view over the horizon holds a promise
I’ll carry you if you’d bother to notice
