1. T.O.A.B.

Tell me something cause I don't know
If that look's for me
Change your face and show me
How is it that you can sleep?

(SHOW ME THAT FACE) Bring it up to me
(SHOW ME THAT FACE) Means nothing to me

(WHY DON'T YOU TELL ME)

What you see in me
(A motherfucker without a life that's
always gettin' somethin')
What you see in me
(I GOT A LIFE - YOU GET A LIFE
AND SHOW ME SOMETHIN')

Black and white I ask this question
Twisted lies come clean
Face it. I see it. Don't wanna be it.
I hate it. I feed it.
Can't wait to see you.

(SHOW ME THAT FACE) Bring it up to me
(SHOW ME THAT FACE) Means nothing to me

Tell me something cause I don't know
If that look's for me

(A motherfucker without a life that's
always gettin' somethin')

(WHY DON'T YOU TELL ME)

What you see in me
(A motherfucker without a life that's
always gettin' somethin')

What you see in me
(I GOT A LIFE. YOU GET A LIFE
AND SHOW ME)


2. Praise

What did you expect?
Fools often sometimes forget
Who really knows what's the truth
Often dignified
How funny changing the tide
Feels like you already knew
(Praise) like the devil
(Connect) you would never
(Sick Man) running circles
Feels like you already knew
(Praise) like the devil
(Connect) you would never
(Sick Man) running circles
Feels like you already knew

Save you
I would never
Deny you
Even though your hate for me is strong

(See) I'm not what you
(Think) I'm the one who'll
(Be) what you never
Thought would be nothin' and now

(AFRAID TO OPEN UP YOUR EYES)
And now you realize

Always you lived in a dream
How would it feel if you could
See past the lies
Oblivious to all of my cries
No hope when I knew that you could

[Chorus repeat 5x]


3. Trust

When I hold my head down to the ground
And I wish you were here with me
Seems like you're always around
I was blind to see
Too good to be true
you can't stay with me
I wish she was all I need
And it's getting late. and it's cold outside
So cold. so cold

(TRUST)

I've wronged you
And steal everything from the truth
Could we find ourselves
walking through
A field with no solitude
The pain goes on

Insensitive to all your needs
Did you ever want to stay with me
Never try to put you down
And I never want to see you leave
I still can't believe you're going to leave
I wish she was all I needed
It's getting late and it's cold outside
So cold. so cold

[Chorus repeat 3x]


4. Crucified

So much pain to ease my simple mind
No hope - I've been crucified
And no one seems to care

(Don't you feel like a bitch)
(Don't promise shit you'll never be)
(Don't you feel like a bitch)
(Don't promise shit you'll never be)

The first time I knew you lied
I ended up crucified
My hate you wear for my cross you bear
It's for me I swear

What's with you
You leech off my desire
Faceless name
So untrue you're wasting away

(Don't you feel like a,)
(Don't you feel like a,)
(Don't you feel like a shit)
(Don't promise shit you'll never be)

[Chorus repeat 4x]


5. Xmas Day

One step in the dark
Touch her hand just to see
If she's all alone again
Still she hasn't seen sun
But I promise you now when she wakes
There will be none
Don't know how she gets by
Sleeps with a phone on her chest
And a bottle that's totally dry
Forgets the day I was born
But if she saw me right now

She would hold me until we both die

I could be the one who would die to
feel you breathe

I could break into a million pieces
So just run as fast as you can for me
You mean everything

I can't deny her. I'll do whatever
To stop all the bleeding that makes
her world so red
Such a delicate one
She screams so loud that I run to
hide from the sound
And I could be the one who would die
to feel you breathe
But it's too far-gone
And this love must die

[Chorus repeat 4x]


6. Dead Set

Stuck in my bedroom with nothing
But a voice in my head
Once my feeling was dead set
(I watch my will begin to fade)
What did you say am I restless
What can I do to relieve it
As my mind just melts away

Once I say - I can't be saved
No more change
I dodge the grave almost every day

One single life needs not to die
For such a cheap price
For one last flight
God save the child who lives like a whore
(I made it through yesterday)

Once I say - I can't be saved
No more change
I dodge the grave almost every day
(Liar)

Now my mind is at standstill
As I breathe to get away
Twice my feeling was dead set
(I watched my life begin to change)
What can I do to remove this

What can you do to relieve it
As my mind just melts away

One single life needs not to die
For such a cheap price
For one last flight
God save the child who lives like a whore
(I made it through yesterday)

One single life needs not to die
For such a cheap price
For one last flight
God save the child

[Chorus repeat 2x]


7. Shine

This is the last time I will talk to you
I feel like I'm in a blocked state of mind
Am I getting through

I'm on a free fall

So hard
Hard for me to shine
Been so long

If you look real closely
You can see right through
The pain I created
I'm putting us through

I'm on a free fall

So hard
Hard for me to shine
Been so long
To find
Try and find myself
Hardest thing I've ever done

To find
Try and find myself

I'm on a free fall
on a free fall


8. Follow

Time can take everything that
surrounds you
You can break from everything that
confines you
Some to trust - look in my eyes
I will guide you
So I say

Living to love could remind you

You can't know follow

What I say to you take with you today
The pressure it brings
Alone alive to know
What I say to you take with you today
You can't take the pain
To live to know

You can't fake
Everything that reminds you
How you feel
Time will tell what's inside you

You can't know follow

[Chorus repeat 2x]


9. Damaged

Didn't you hurt yourself
Couldn't you wash the blood away
Didn't you love yourself
Couldn't you see the truth
Didn'y you wake to see the light
Couldn't you hear the truth

(GOD YOU'RE SO SHAMELESS)
Stand up to me I know what you'll say
(GOD YOU'RE SO SHAMELESS)
Why don't you wake up and stop all the pain

How could you really know as your
blood flows
The damage left inside
If you should ever see the pain in me
You'd wish it away

Didn't you hurt yourself
Didn't you love yourself
Couldn't you find yourself
Such a shame it's a waste of a life
Couldn't you save yourself

How could you really know

[Chorus repeat 4x]


10. Live Again

Feeling Nothing
Lonely Empty
You try to walk away but you fall
You cannot understand what's this for

In this world I see it more
The pain you feel that I ignore

You see my face and then you see
nothin'
Confused. you turn and live on
I turn my face
You're staring back again
Look at yourself and live again

Can't see me. you feel me
Want me. you'll find me
I'll be your everything
Will you call
You'll need more & more
When you fall

In this world I see it more
The pain you feel that I ignore

You see my face and then you see
nothing
Confused. you turn and live on
I turn my face
You're staring back again
Look at yourself and live again

How many times have you looked
At yourself & felt mistreated
How does it feel to know that
This life of yours is real
All of your life you've been led
To believe your nothin'
So look at yourself and start to live
again

You see my face and then you see
nothing
Confused you turn and live on
I turn my face
You're staring back again
Look at yourself and live again

If you don't change you'll be nothin'

So look at yourself and live again

I turn my face
You're staring back again

So look at yourself and live again


11. Beautiful

200 miles per hour
That's how fast I seem to go

With the weight of the world on my
shoulders
Slow down. come and catch us all

WAIT!
Slow Down!
Take!
Slow Down!
Why can't you help me?
Slow Down!

Feel
When I'm in doubt

I need something beautiful
To fill the space we've taken up
I need something to feel real
Again before I go numb

Downward spiral. a kaleidoscope view
Is what you're seeing saying so jaded
The picture I drew

Come again. Come Again. Come Again!
Wait!
Take!
Wait!
Why can't you help me?

Wait!
Take!
Wait!
Take!

Feel when I'm in doubt
Feel when I'm in doubt

I need something beautiful
To fill the space we've taken up
I need something to feel real
Again before I go numb

Are you alive?

Are you alive?
I'm alive
When I'm in doubt
I'm alive


12. Redefine

Just sit down right here in front of me
I'll let you see
Connect your face to the fist
I'll show you what you can be
No one to hear all your cries
No one to hear you beg
Listen to me. why can't you see
You are with me
Positioned under me

Let you live
I depend
On your will
Do you see what's running through me

So I'm wrong
I'm not alone
Seems like you're scared
You're holding me back again

Confused I'll hold all your
thoughts from you
You're close to me
You hide from your own fears
Now I'll set them free

No one to hear all your cries
No one to hear you beg
Listen to me. why can't you see
You are with me
Positioned under me

[Chorus repeat 3x]


13. Angel's Son

Life is changing
I can't go on without you
Rearranging. I will be strong
I'll stand by you

(You were fighting everyday)
(So hard to hide the pain)
(I know you never said goodbye)
(I had so much left to say)

One last song
Given to an Angel's Son
As soon as you were gone
As soon as you were gone

I have a new life now
She lives through you
What can I do
Feel so alone now
I pray for you
We still love you

I can't believe you're gone

I can't believe
