Track Name: To The Gates
Taking all the time I found
Picking my feet up off the ground
Now you see the way I’ve grown
Like the steps up to the gates

Taking me away
This cloud I float
Giving me my sanity and hope
I wish I weren’t so deep in silence
Take my silence dear

I am here I want your soul
Give it all away I’ll give ya hope
I know it’s hard to take
Like the steps up to the gates

So breathe
You know it’s me you wanted dear
Running fast I’d catch you dreaming in the past
Take my hand I’ll lead you softly
Catch you softly dear

But this is now
Hold my breath, I die
Scream and shout for a longer goodbye
Take my home
Take it all away

Here ya go now, take it
You know you’re mine now, live it
All my pieces spilt out on the floor
Give it a little while; you’ll want some more

I know
And when you’re silent give me sleep
When I’m wishing give me peace
Take away your hoping
Away my dreaming now

Cause this is now
Hold my breath, I die
Scream and shout; I want to end goodbyes
Take me home
Cause you took it all away
I took it all away

Here’s your home, you cried
I knew you’d want it
So ends this long goodbye
Take my home
Take it all away

Take it all away
Take it all away
Take it all away
Take it all away
Track Name: Do You
Do you fight when you should give in
Do you run when you should stand strong

Do you feel when they tell you you're fake and wrong
Running their mouth, thinking you'll fight back

Jump and fall
You're already down so leave
Your home in this whole sane world

You're goin down
Fallen... taken advantage of
You know it's here

You're fine cause you're on your own... alone
You find that you have someone
So go be wild like you are
Be wild like you are
Track Name: Piano
Peace, please come back home
You knew I'd lose you to all this change
All this world
Strength, grant me this wish
Stay true and smile through this
Though it's gone
Though it's gone

But Oh, it's the same
As it was yesterday
And oh, all this change
Picked me up
Threw away
Give me back
Give me back
To my past
To my past
Take this scar

When all's said and done
When all was good and fun
And it's here
Not so close

And Oh, it's the same
As it was yesterday
And oh, all this change
Picked me up
Threw away
Give me back
Give me back
To my past
To my past
Take this scar

One small step
To what I thought was good
Show me fate
Cause all this world seams fake

Curse all this
Curse all this
Curse all this
Curse all this
Track Name: Loving It Dying
Take down
Take down the sign
To all of the one's that I've loved
I'll be alright

Play your music loud
Drown out all the sound at night

Being what we are
Different lies and different words
But lies and rhymes have all got words

Thinking that I'm right
When all of this mystery called life
Tackles me down to show it's alive
I know that I love

Beat him
Beat him to death
Cause now that he's shown who he is
He'll breathe up all our breath

I'm sorry that I'm crossed and fake
The dream I thought I lost is take

Showing my surprise
As everyone looks, groans, and weeps
The tragedy is my heart still weeps

I can live or die
But all in between has got to go
Cause all of between you take and show
I know that I love

Lift up
Lift up this flame
Cause now that I'm out here alone
Everything's so dark and shameful

Alone is what I feel, I know
Alone is what we feel, not alone

Chance and chance I fall
I'm already down so I'll remain
Until the beginning starts again

Roam the earth by choice
Cause all that its shown me makes me hate
But all I can do and see is love

Till the bitter end
Loving it dyeing it
Loving it dyeing it
Loving it dyeing it
Loving it dyeing it
Loving it dyeing it
Loving it dyeing it
Loving it dyeing it
Loving it dyeing it
Loving it die, die, die, die, love
Love, love, love, love, love
Track Name: Feels Like It's Over
It's been awhile
Took my time getting on with things
Hurting but loving things

Well time's here
I listen but hold my ears
Smiling to hold my tears, run

Ruby sky
Ruby soul
Cause all of it's in my blood
You know

I grow here
Rooted deep into this soil
Parts of you pierce my soul
It's fine for now

And you knew
That after this you'd be brand new
Old scars made anew
And feels like it's over
And feels like it's over
And feels like it's over
And feels like it's over
