Best Friend 03:16
The nights we stayed awake the times you pushed all the hate the wife, the kids, the life took one look, stepped away and you just kept running. ( chorus) What the hell went wrong again? why did she go and lose her mind I thought she was my best friend What the hell went wrong again I tried to reach inside how many faces can you hide the wife, the kids, the lies took one look, stepped away and you just kept running ( chorus)

Amazed 04:11
Somewhere in this madness The world cannot hold me Somewhere with a feeling Taking me back Somewhere in this life The world cannot afford me Somewhere all this passion turned itself on..again (pre-chorus) Cuz I'm amazed can we go back back to the way it used to be back to the way it used to be Someday you won't see me t'ill your gone someday you will hear me calling out someday you will heal the person i am supposed to be Somewhere in this madness you will say c'mon can we copy what's been done somewhere all this passion turned itself on..again ( pre-chorus) (chorus) tell them I'm sorry tell them i'm sorry tell them i'm sorry we ran away
3.
I keep trying to remember, all the things I don't know In the early morning I embrace the lie cuz I'm so out there and I'm still trying to burn the sunshine She don't notice when i'm alright tell me now, I'll go away I can feel the stranger in me coming on Cuz I'm so out there and I'm still trying to burn the sunshine ( chorus) somewhere I feel the dream, I am free I can see everything all the stories i left to give away I am free, I can see everything.

There's not much left of me How far do you wanna go? Best be getting away until I hit the ground Take me to the water make me drink until I want to be More than a carcass that eroded from another face-down I'll be someone else. ( pre-chorus) How can it be I've been wasting my time in self-loath How can it be that my first day of death is so long. There's nothing left for me Are you sure that you want to know Best be showing the face i use to get the crowd Take me to the brittle edge and push me so that I can see All the people I deserted for another faith now.. I'll be someone else. ( pre-chorus) ( chorus) Maybe now I can last through a sunrise Maybe now I can feel the life I've got Maybe now I can face the shadows I awake...I awake.
5.
See Me Now 04:54
I've been on the wrong side Trying to challenge honesty I've been lying face-down Trying to salvage All the good I bleed out ( pre-chorus) Tell me what to say Tell me who to be Cuz I got no answers in me for ya Show me how to live Tell me how to be Cuz I got no answers in me for ya ( chorus) I wonder if you could see me now Would you let it go Would you let it go And I wonder if you could be with me Would you let it go Would you let it go I've been trying so hard Just to balance my defeat If your love could save me now I'll abandon all the cruel I seek out ( pre-chorus) ( chorus)
6.
Underneath 03:07
Wasted life, show me something I see Running out away again. You won't see,what burns deep into me Because I live underneath. (chorus) You think your going down Yeah so easily Your tired of giving up everything I've been around, traveled overseas Spent some time on the stage You can't see, what burns deep into me Because I live underneath (chorus) I won't risk my time Raging war with me Do you want to die alone Wasted life I can't let it be I won't let you die alone (chorus)
7.
Riverbed 03:55
Will she walk on by The way she does Will she turn and smile Or fly away Will she get me high She always does Will she leave me there, will she leave me there Down by the riverbed Down by the riverbed Will she walk on by The way she does Will she even care Why I am there Will she get me high She always does Will she leave me there Will she leave me there Down by the riverbed Down by the riverbed Will she plant the seeds in my head Will she laugh at what I've become Will she make my mind understand Then one day just leave me Down by the riverbed Down by the riverbed
8.
Traces 02:59
Traces of me, find the pain I can make this harder than it has to be Bring it on I say bring it on This time i am not weak Bring it on I say bring it on It's what I am waiting for ( pre-chorus) How will i know not to run away Again How will I know just to be myself And stay Face what's inside of me right away While I fade to nothing Overnight it could change Bring it on I say bring it on I need to find me Bring it on I say Bring it on It's what I am waiting for ( pre-chorus) ( chorus) I'm ready to feel this, blood awake Before a drop comes out I'm ready to feel this, blood awake Before now, now, now Traces of me find the pain Bring it on I say bring it on It's what I am waiting for ( pre-chorus) ( chorus)
9.
She don't know me better She don't notice anything She hides behind the teardrops Little things make her insane Say you got all this time Say you got a open mind to The words we say Say you got all this time Say you got a broken mind And it drifts so far it drifts so far away (chorus) She's got these demons in her head She makes it look easy And then I notice what she said From beyond herself She don't know me better She won't even say my name She hides behind the secrets Little thing she likes to play Say you got all this time Say you got a open mind To the tradgedy Say you got all this time Say you got a broken mind And it drifts so far it drifts so far away (chorus)
10.
Destroyed 03:50
Heard you crying from the room next door Down deep in your hide-away It's funny how the sound of tears can break So softly against this reality (chorus) And all the pain evolves.. into this Language that you will always speak And all the places you thought...you couldn't Change the world that you will never see Cuz you will always be.. Destroyed Heard you laughing from the room next door The sickness won't go away It's funny how the thoughts that make you hurt Dissolve..into a plea that burns
