Track Name: Winter
Never grow old,

A memory to have and to hold,
One year of my life was my gift to you,
That memory of hope made me hold on to you,

4 feet, 2 footsteps in the snow
These constant headaches
Remind me that I'm all alone
Cold air that burns my lungs
I know I'm wrong oh god I know I'm wrong

A piece of my mind that I left behind
A piece of my mind frozen in time

My mind is a prison (4 footsteps in the snow)
A cell made for two (Cold air cuts through)
I'm on my own (Remind me I'm alone)
I'll never break through (Oh god I know that I was wrong)
Track Name: Distance
This is the perfect analogy, for why I only look at what's in front of me
If I read between the lines I'll fall through
The person I am, the person I was
I can only be glad he pulled through because
Would I ever want to look back?

I lived my life
I lived to get up off my knees and get back on my feet
I lived my life
I spilled my guts, I'll stitch them up
Why do I feel nothing?

This is my only regret, it took me so long to get out of my head
"It's a trick of a mind it's behind these eyes" Those words rung true
There isn't a medicine that could make me remember
Who I was before I was dismembered
It's an echo on the airwaves
A whisper in the breeze
It's in our words and their ears
Its blowing through the trees

I lived my life
I lived to get up off my knees and get back on my feet
I lived my life
I spilled my guts, I'll stitch them up
Why do I feel nothing?

I'm with you
You're with me
You're not alone when the world's crashing at your feet
When the flames crashed down on me
I chose exactly who and what I've got to be

It's easy to blame, look down on the world and all it's faults
When you're alone and decide that your dreams are false
I once was blind, but now I see
It's not darkness thats in front of me

I lived my life on my knees
Now I'm standing on my own two feet
Track Name: Out to Sea
I thought you were never there for me
You were too busy with yourself to see
I forgot that you cared, that you cared for me
I was so angry

When I was young, I felt alone
Ive got my family, I'm not on my own
I can't shake this feeling I was born to end up

Cast out to sea, I'm not drowning
Not sinking, Still singing
I will swim to shore blindly
Cast out to sea, Still not drowning
Not sinking, Still singing
I will make you proud of me

I know that you're not to blame
I couldn't say that i was a saint
I never took the chance to say I'm sorry
I was just a stupid kid back then

When I was young, I felt alone
Ive got my family, I'm not on my own
I can't shake this feeling I was born to end up

Cast out to sea, I'm not drowning
Not sinking, Still singing
I will swim to shore blindly
Cast out to sea, Still not drowning
Not sinking, Still singing
I will make you proud of me

You're the reason I'm here
So I'll see this through
This is my way of saying "thank you"
Track Name: Cities Burn
Call to below
To declare who you are
Through these seasons we are who we are
A bottle halved
A burden shared
We've been strangers since the war was declared
I'm so tired
My body is weak
I've been running I've been wrong
You've stayed strong

For your information
Time has passed
The voices faded the scars from my past
Out of supplies
Running alone
When cities burn
We won't have a home

Our family's a memory
The past is forgotten
You took all you could
What I'm left with is rotten
You may live in regret, I won't ever forget
This house isn't home, you will die alone

You bury your children
And lie to your men
It can't all be as it was
Way back when

I'll never understand
Your lack of refrain
Your solitude is your virtue
The weight of the world shouldn't be taken in vein
You're out for yourself
I should have known
When cities burn
I'll survive alone
Track Name: Lifeline
Behind glass I stare into space
Count down the minutes until my conscience escapes
Don't lose hope you'll learn to cope, it's nothing more than a passing phase
Negativity's infectious, instead of kicking us down they could god damn respect us

This is what we need to do
We don't want to be stuck
We don't want to trudge through
This is an answer
We will fight to make it the truth

This is our calling
Called to arms we can't surrender
This is our lifeline
To the lives we long to live
(For our life throw a lifeline)

If this is your dream, then what can you do?
We will give up everything so that we can do this for you
