Track Name: Before It's Too Late
We're living our lives without someone to guide us
Are we making a choice or blindly leading the way?
Believing the lies that they blatantly told us
We're trapped on this stage without roles we can play

Drifting through days we try and muster a purpose
Doubting the notion that there’s one to be had
It's too bad we only see what lies on the surface
It's sick we're so quick to judge and to be misled

All we want is to know
Is whether we can keep it in our control
Or should we just let go
And fall...?

Every day gets washed away
In the rush of our routine
Quickly changing like the frames
In a movie we have seen
How can we take it anymore?
It’s getting old to sit and wait
We better take it in our hands
Before it's too late

Often I think of how fragile our lives are
On this little planet we call our home
We think that we’re clever and sure to get wiser
Without even knowing if we’re all alone

So the story goes on
We die before we are born
Never leaving a thing behind for them
To hold on to when we’re gone

Every day gets washed away
In the rush of our routine
Quickly changing like the frames
In a movie we have seen
How can we take it anymore?
It’s getting old to sit and wait
We better take it in our hands
Before it's too late
Track Name: Mistakes
The last thing I recall, the sun and the snow
Your fingers felt so cold
You warmed them in my hands as the daylight faded
It feels so long ago, where are we now?
I don’t know how
But I can almost feel all my intentions failing

Let’s pretend that we
Can stop this faking
Hold me like you need me
Hold me like the world is ending

Watching your eyes well up from what I’ve put you through
You carry the weight, believing you’re supposed to
Meaningless words, I’ve seen them scar and bruise
I don’t mean to hurt you, I don’t mean to hurt you
But I always do

If I could only stop being so insecure
Making my affliction yours
The screaming in my head, so loud I feel it caving
Please let me recant, and start over now
I don’t know how
But I can almost feel all my intentions failing

Let’s pretend that we
Can stop this faking
Hold me like you need me
Hold me like the world is ending

Watching your eyes well up from what I’ve put you through
You carry the weight, believing you’re supposed to
Meaningless words, I’ve seen them rip right through
I don’t mean to hurt you, I don’t mean to hurt you
But I always do
Track Name: What It's Like
Watching people come and go
Who will stay till the end?
Wish I could have taken back what I said
But I can’t

But truth be told I’m not
The one who fell apart
I never wanted any kind of confrontation
And I’m not gonna stop
Try to call my bluff
You will discover it’s all in your imagination

We’re not the same, I’ve had to fight
You’ll never know just what I’ve had to get through
So get on your way, don’t ever look back
Don’t even pretend like you have nothing to lose

Mesmerizing carousel
Spinning we never change
It feels like my train of thought
Must have spun off the rails

The ones I’ve left behind
Scalded in my mind
I’m burdened by the guilt for those who couldn’t make it
But still, the more I know
The less I want to feel
If you knew where this road leads, you’d know why
I had to take it

We’re not the same, I’ve had to fight
You’ll never know just what I’ve had to get through
So get on your way, don’t ever look back
Don’t even pretend like you have nothing to lose

We’re not the same, I’ve had to fight
You’ll never know just what I’ve had to get through
So get on your way, don’t ever look back
Don’t even pretend like you have nothing to lose
Track Name: How Would You Know?
The ones I love surrounding me
Friends and family
I wanna cry
Feeling everything I've felt
Should’ve asked for help
But I can't even try

Their hands upon my shoulders
They feel so crushing
They tell me to relax
But that's not easy for me
I’m racing now for cover
Hope that they won’t see the real me

Oh, I can’t fight this feeling
It brings me to my knees and
These thoughts they won’t let go of me
I’m bruised without a beating
I’m cut without bleeding
Ripping out your hearts to get free
It’s not your fault I’m not being
The things that you've needed
At least you can say you tried
And if I stop making sense
When my pain gets too intense
It's swallowing me up inside
But how would you know?

I don’t want to share these thoughts
They’re the fog that floats
Inside my head
A voice I don’t wanna hear
Whispers in my ear:
“This could be the end”

I guess I’ll take a chance
And deal with this on my own
Don’t wanna make you think
I’m not the person you’ve known
Don’t take it too hard
I’ll keep you outside for the time

Oh, I can’t fight this feeling
It brings me to my knees and
These thoughts they won’t let go of me
I’m bruised without a beating
I’m cut without bleeding
Ripping out your hearts to get free
It’s not your fault I’m not being
The things that you've needed
At least you can say you tried
And if I stop making sense
When my pain gets too intense
It's swallowing me up inside
But how would you know?
