Track Name: P L S
Alright. I’m still around so I haven’t lost the fight and I’m still alive so I must be doing something right.

I got lucky and I worked hard. I was spared and I was scarred. I learned a lesson, allow me to share: you only truly fight when you truly care.
Track Name: Transcendent
I recall why I stand tall: if not me then no one at all

Faith in something more: a belief that’s at your core but all alone is how you feel so how do you know which one is real? Not everyone will have a good day and not everything will go your way but still you persist, and still you insist that I recall why I stand tall: if not me then no one at all

You’re fighting through it (transcendent). Every single day you can say that I recall why I stand tall: if not me then no one at all Now I stand tall and rise above it all / and transcend

Now I stand above it all. Looking down, it’s hard to see the wall that kept me down and made me feel so small. This new perspective is mine for the long haul.

Life to me is a constant fight where you never really know if you’re doing things right and we’re not going to know until we see the light so let’s live today like we will die tonight. And then we’ll wake up tomorrow to see that nothing has changed but you and me. The moral of the story rests inside of you – you have no control but control what you do because You recall why you stood tall: if not this then nothing at all
Track Name: Your Bad Idea
You have not learned to allow your bad idea to take a bow. Like trying to milk a dead cow, got nothing until now but

Not today. There’s another way

Your dreams were mangled, your thoughts got tangled, your voice was strangled until you found an angle to say

Not today. There’s another way

Your future warns you, your past has scorned you

(Your bad idea) it’s in your eyes when you look into the mirror to say

Not today. There’s another way

You feel the tension. It’s got your attention. Forgot to mention your bone of contention but

Not today. There’s another way. You don’t have to stay stuck in your old ways.

Your future warns you, your past has scorned you. It burned a hole inside. You thought you died but not today.

And I say not today ‘cause it’s my life and my way. I don’t know if I can make it any clearer that when you look into the mirror you see what’s real, what’s here to stay. Real life just won’t go away.

(real/life x4) take a look at this/stare it in the face: Your bad idea
Track Name: Hang Ups
There’s nothing new you haven’t heard. You probably could predict every fucking word. I’m stuck in the past, counting my scars, wondering why I haven’t gone too far. I’m blaming everything including myself while accepting what is given is the key to good health.

I’ve got hang ups/I’ve got hang ups. Maybe that’s why I’m so fucked up.

I found rotten lettuce in my salad days, which helps explain the bad taste in my mouth. No clear thoughts/it’s all a haze. I can’t remember when it all went south. Rotten lettuce in your salad days makes you want to throw away all the good things along with the bad and forget what you had.

I’ve got hang ups/I’ve got hang ups. Maybe that’s why I’m so fucked up.

I’ve got hang ups/I’ve got hang ups. I’m hung up on it all and it’s all fucked up.

Call me old fashioned or just afraid, I say I’m haunted by mistakes I’ve made. I swear I didn’t know what I should do. I swear I didn’t mean to be mean to you. I’ve got hang ups/I’ve got hang ups.

Hang up.

I lost a piece of my soul when I lost control so now I’ve got to find some peace of mind.

But all I see is a waste of time and I know it’s all in my mind.

And all I need is some peace of mind but all I’ve got is time. All I’ve got is time.
Track Name: Next in Line
There’s one thing I know: we had it all except for what it takes/full speed ahead until life hit the brakes

Hit the brakes. Hit the brakes.

Life outlived the lie/I just learned how to play the game when life outlived the lie/I see your shame.

We had it all.

We were the last hope, the reason to still cope, bought promises (we were the next in line)

Opportunity knocking turned onlookers gawking, run off the road (the next in line)

Internal peace, a life filled with ease, prosperity – all broken promises

Help from above, true love: just some of the broken promises

Hit the brakes

Life outlived the lie/we’re growing older in an unkind time when life outlives the lie, now past its prime.

We had it all except for what it takes

We were the last hope, the reason to still cope, bought promises (we were the next in line)

Opportunity knocking turned onlookers gawking, run off the road (the next in line)

Internal peace, a life filled with ease, prosperity – all broken promises

Help from above, true love: just some of the broken promises

This is the way of the world.

I’m sick and tired/sick and tired of being ill and fatigued

When life outlives the lie you hit the brakes/hit the brakes

And then in the blink of an eye the momentum accelerates.

If you don’t stop it soon you just might be the next casualty to hit the brakes.
Track Name: Not Yours
Always talking about trying to settle the score/now it’s time to learn right from wrong.
Track Name: It's Not That I Don't Love You
When I was young it seemed like fun to say fuck the world and to trust no one. I raised some hell and some concerns. I grew up but I never learned

But there you were, a source of light, a guiding hope that there’s dawn after night. You saw my flaws, of that I’m sure, but my flaws are the kind that get left behind and that love cannot cure.

I know my thoughts are full of hate and I don’t like to compromise

And I know it’s hard to get close to me when that look is in my eyes.

I know my friends are hooligans and I know how much I’ve lied

But I was raised to never back down so it’s hard to apologize.

It’s not that I don’t love you, it’s just that I’m anti-social too.

It’s not that I don’t love you, so what was I supposed to do?

So there we were, out late one night. Some douche bag thought he was king of the road and I was looking to fight. I screamed at him, you screamed at me. You pointed out some important things that through my rage I could not see.

I know you hate to be left alone while I stay out all night

But it’s gotta be hard to sit next to me while I pick a fight.

I know my friends are hooligans and I know how much I’ve lied

But I was raised to never back down so it’s hard to apologize.

It’s not that I don’t love you, it’s just that I’m anti-social too.

It’s not that I don’t love you, so what was I supposed to do?

I broke some bones, I broke some glass, I broke some promises, I put you last, I made you mad, I made you sad, I made you glad to be left alone but of all I’ve done I think the worst was when I said I trust no one while you stood there by my side. We both got hurt but at least you tried.
Track Name: End of an Error
It took me this long to figure things out and to bring that chapter to an end But it’s not over and I know that I’m not finished ‘cause now I see

That it’s the end of an error

Bear witness to a world in pain, buckling under constant strain. It’s the end.

Our live and our stories: a vicious refrain proving that we’re all insane. It’s the end.

Turning fire that consumes you into fire that can fuel you

You’ve got to make the choice to live with the pain and rise up anyway to win this game.

Can’t shake it, no not this time.

There’s a reason that I keep coming back. I try to make amends for what I lack but like a dog whose tail is his enemy the more that I aggress the more that I’m consuming me.

The fictions of division corrode the mind. Hands shaking, won’t settle, still angry, not fine

But it ends today ‘cause here and now I vow to make a change (it’s the end of an error)

To stand up and to do my part today (the end of an error)

I may not make it right but I can’t make it worse, no way (the end of an error)

I’ll make amends and I’ll do it my own way (the end of an error)

The end of an error (x2)
