Track Name: Tread On Me
Get your ass up, stand your ground
Aren't you tired of being pushed around?
It seems we've come complacent with falling down
What happened to that fire inside?
That burned within & overflowed with pride?
It cannot be contained if you

Tread on me
Tread on me

I'm ready to unleash the beast within
Conquer the world, let the fun begin
No one is safe, better start to run
Playing by my rules, an army of one

Fool me twice, shame on me
For thinking you were something you could never be
The lines are getting blurry, and it's hard to see
What is right and who is wrong
Sit and argue all day long
But I will not back down if you

Tread on me
Tread on me

I'm ready to unleash the beast within
Conquer the world, let the fun begin
No one is safe, better start to run
Playing by my rules, an army of one

This isn't over
I didn't want this war
Have you forgotten
What we're fighting for

I'm ready to unleash the beast within
Conquer the world, let the fun begin
No one is safe, better start to run
Playing by my rules, an army of one

Army of one
Track Name: Revival
(2, 3, 4!)

The dull reality washes over me, and I
Come back down to where I'm supposed to be
I take another hit 'cause I want to feel alive
But my conscience begs, "stop," 'cause it's
Killing me inside

Wake up, don't back down
There's still time to turn it all around
This time, don't cross the line
I can hear the distant sound of my heart
Calling my name
Telling me to throw this all away
I've drained my heart dry
I think it's time to take back what's mine

I can't reach the clouds that I could before, I wonder
Is all my shame worth it anymore
My will is weakened by my crippling doubt
Is my high something I can live without?

Wake up, don't back down
There's still time to turn it all around
This time, don't cross the line
I can hear the distant sound of my heart
Calling my name
Telling me to throw this all away
I've drained my heart dry
I think it's time to take back what's mine

Whoa

Wake up, don't back down
There's still time to turn it all around
This time, don't cross the line
I can hear the distant sound of my heart
Calling my name
It's telling me to throw this all away
I've drained my heart dry
I think it's time to take back what's mine

Wake up, don't back down
There's still time to turn it all around
Track Name: These Lies
These lies are pulling me down
I can't reach solid ground
Every day, it's the same
Just like some twisted game

I'm coming up for air
It's too much to bear
These waves are crashing down
Revealing my despair
The tide starts to rise
So I close my eyes
And I take another breath
As I drown in these
Lies

These lies, foaming from your mouth
This time, I'm calling you out
Every day, it's the same
And you're the one to blame

I'm coming up for air
It's too much to bear
These waves are crashing down
Revealing my despair
The tide starts to rise
So I close my eyes
And I take another breath
As I drown in these
Lies
You're dragging me down with your lies

It's too much to bear
These waves are crashing down
It's all coming down
The tide starts to rise
So I close my eyes
And I take another breath
As I drown

I'm coming up for air
It's too much to bear
These waves are crashing down
Revealing my despair
The tide starts to rise
So I close my eyes
And I take another breath
As I drown in these
Lies
Track Name: Left Behind
Is this how it ends, please tell me
A new plot twist in our story
Can't get back to the way it used to be
Now

Have I said enough
Or have I said too much
It's getting hard to tell
Always stuck in this hell
You said yourself you don't need me
I never thought it'd be easy
But here we are & I'm breaking down

Left behind
I sold my world for you and it's
All gone, overnight
I'm fading fast
Can't let go of all of the memories
From the past

Couldn't swallow your pride
And keep it locked inside
I'm not saying I'm right
But I can't give up this fight
You say that I'm overreacting
Your ignorance is so distracting
I can't get through to you so
Why try

Left behind
I sold my world for you and it's
All gone, overnight
I'm fading fast
Can't let go of all of the memories
From the past
Oh no...

Oh, I'm left behind
I sold my world for you and it's
All gone, overnight
(It's all gone, oh it's all gone)
I'm fading fast
(I'm fading faster into the dust)
Can't let go of all of the memories
From the past
(These memories from my past)

Left behind
(I'm left behind and wondering why)
I sold my world for you and it's
All gone, overnight
I'm fading fast
(I'm letting go of the things from the past)
Can't let go of all of the memories
From the past
Track Name: Palaces
Here I stand
On the edge again
Have I found
What I'm looking for
Where am I,
My long lost friend?
The end of my song,
Or a beginning once more...

Give me a reason not to throw it all away
And tell me why I can't find my better days
'Cause I should burn this palace and walk my way
'Cause if I never go, I know I'll never stray,
So I'll walk my way

Walk my way

I was told
That I was the heir
Set in stone
Locked in my fate
As I go
I hope you care,
And set me free
As I carve my slate

Give me a reason not to throw it all away
And tell me why I can't find my better days
'Cause I should burn this palace and walk my way
'Cause if I never go, I know I'll never stray,
So I'll walk my way

I know your heart shares these scars,
But all this pain has gone too far
I hope you find your peace of mind,
And when you're gone, know I won't cry, oh no....

Walk my way

Give me a reason not to throw it all away
And tell me why I can't find my better days
I should burn this palace and walk my way
'Cause if I never go, I know I'll never stray,
So I'll walk my way

Walk my way

Said I'll walk my way

And I'll burn this palace down…
Track Name: No Crying Allowed
Call me
I'm not picking up the phone
There's no one home
It seems you think you're God and
I owe you, but tell me
Who exactly I should owe the pleasure of
Censoring myself

Going down
(but I'm loving every minute of it)
Burn it to the ground
And watch the ashes rise
It's no surprise
See it in your eyes
Kiss it goodbye
I am leaving the crowd
And there's no crying allowed

Look at me and tell me what you see
Is it what you want, give me sincerity
If you're so perfect, maybe you can tell me
Why you cry your sorry little ass to sleep at night
You cry yourself to sleep

Going down
(but I'm loving every minute of it)
Burn it to the ground
And watch the ashes rise
It's no surprise
See it in your eyes
Kiss it goodbye
I am leaving the crowd
And there's no crying allowed

Stay true to yourself
Forget everyone else
You've got nothing to prove
And nothing to lose
Strap yourselves in
Life's about to begin
It's about to begin

Going down
(but I'm loving every minute of it)
Burn it to the ground
Watch the ashes rise
It's no surprise
See it in your eyes
Kiss it goodbye
I am leaving the crowd
And there's no crying allowed
Track Name: NHB
Lacerated, lying all alone
This ride wears down my broken soul
This shell of a man, once filled with life
Shattered & withered, challenging what's right

No holds barred, just make the change
'Cause you're addicted and you pushed them all away
What's passed is past, just let it all go
'Cause the seasons have changed and you've grown cold

Dear self-worth, why aren't you there
This mountain of guilt is too much to bear
And dear forgiveness, please come home
I've spent forever rotting alone

No holds barred, just make the change
'Cause you're addicted and you've pushed them all away
What's passed is past, just let it all go
'Cause the seasons have changed and you've grown cold

I dare myself
To escape this hell
'Cause my soul still bleeds
Do you hear my plead, no?

No holds barred, just make the change
'Cause you're addicted and you've pushed them all away
What's passed is past, just let it all go
'Cause the seasons have changed and you've grown cold

No holds barred, just make the change
'Cause you're addicted and you've pushed them all away
What's passed is past, just let it all go
'Cause the seasons have changed and you've grown cold
Track Name: All the Same
Here we go, breaking promises again
Making excuses just to hurt a friend
My rope is fraying
It's just a matter of time before my patience runs out

When I close my eyes,
You're gone

I've been waiting for too long
To see that side of you
I don't believe what you tell me
'Cause it's all the same

It's so easy to see through you
You've got a list of amends and it's long overdue
Your mask is breaking
I'm done wasting my time so I'm taking it back

When I close my eyes
You're gone

I've been waiting for too long
To see that side of you
I don't believe what you tell me
'Cause it's all the same

You cannot fix yourself
I'm leaving you behind
Cannot fix yourself
I'm leaving you behind

I've been waiting for too long
To see that side of you
I don't believe what you tell me

I've been waiting for too long
To see that side of you
I don't believe what you tell me
'Cause it's all the same
Track Name: Make My Day
Tick tock, you watch the time passing by
It looks like your well of excuses ran dry
No one to blame except yourself
It's time to stop pointing fingers at everyone else
Your self-fulfilling prophecy has left you in denial
No one to defend you when your heart's on trial
You talk down to everyone when you should be on your knees
Step up to the plate, and,
Please,

Go on and make (make) my (my) day, it's now or never
You talk a big game as you hide all your shame
So walk away (way) and (and) swallow your pride
Because you're dead inside, so make my day

To taunt or beat down, you can't decide which
Well it's all coming back, ain't karma a bitch
You're the king of the mountain and everyone's scared
It might be true if anyone actually cared
When you open your eyes you might finally see (see)
There's more to this life than a self-serving me
You bust in the room, think I'll get out of the way (way)
Only one thing to
Say

Go on and make (make) my (my) day, it's now or never
You talk a big game as you hide all your shame
So walk away (way) and (and) swallow your pride
Because you're dead inside, so make my day

The day of judgement comes
You look in the mirror
But you're not gonna find
Much sympathy here
That bridge was burned
Years ago
Now it's my turn
To say I told you so

Make my day, it's now or never
You talk a big game as you hide all your shame
So walk away and swallow your pride
'Cause everybody knows that you're dead inside so

Make my day, it's my pleasure
You talk a big game as you hide all your shame
So walk away and swallow your pride
Because you're dead inside, so make my day

Make my day
Track Name: Reach for Me
Pull the trigger, shoot the memories out
Feel the past assure my doubt
Take the lessons from the pain—no, not again...
Washing over, flashing back
Two steps forward, one step back
All this hard-earned progress lost in addictive vain

Beneath this cover,
We only suffer

I'm falling down
You reach for me
I can't help you while I'm drowning
And my one regret
Still surfaces
When I still can't help myself

How do we sleep at night
Obsessing over who was right
Reliving every word of every memory
And I've grown tired of this place
I'm hardly holding onto grace
Can't seem to break these chains that are holding me

Beneath this cover,
We only suffer

I'm falling down
You reach for me
I can't help you while I'm drowning
And my one regret
Still surfaces
When I still can't help myself

Why can't I let go of the pain I've grown to know?
Soon I'll be gone & only pain will carry on...

Falling down
You reach for me
I can't help you while I'm drowning
And my one regret
Still surfaces
When I still can't help myself

So I'm climbing up
I reach for you
Pull ourselves from this sorrow
All our regrets
Now all remise
Take the lessons and
Forgive myself
