Track Name: 01. Chains That Never Existed
every night in my dreams
i count your blessings
and compare them to mine
compare them to mine

oh god why
why won't you take this life
take this life and start a new lifetime

the reasons i need time
only shuffle in my mind
to feel again i must fill the void of life
one last time
to see what has been gone
all the lies that you have drawn
and break from these chains
the chains that never even existed

and live our lives praying
oh god, set us free

and now that they are dead and gone
i hold the key of light
i show the path from the darkened life
back to mine
back to mine
would you lead the way?
in case you stray, i lift you up
and we can fight for another day

the reasons i need time
only shuffle in my mind
to feel again i must fill the void of life
one last time
to see what has been gone
all the lies that you have drawn
and break from these chains
the chains that never even existed
Track Name: 02. Watchtower
images on my mind
are the only proof that you ever existed
you told me to start living
but how do i begin if i'm already at the end?

the line below my feet is fading
my mind is weak, shattered and shading
take me home all alone
let me make this all come to life
all that we have known

all we've known
this place isn't my home
my haven to be whole again
so set me free to me make me complete

show the light from your height
to my lonely front steps
all that we've known
take them with you and see if anyone's home

am i home?
or do i just feel so fucking alone?

in this room of silence
i feel your presence
breath of the freezing wind covers the windows
the doors are locked from the inside
leaving me alone with my thoughts
thoughts of your smile
that could light up this place
Track Name: 03. Napoleon
once again i pack my things
leaving to redress all of my sins
don't you worry, i'll be okay
things will be different, different someday

to see what i have seen
takes more than being clean
as the wind blows me away
i know that everything will be okay

as soon as i arrive
i'll tell you the stories they hide
but for now you're on your own
give me a reason to come back home

every second of the day
i feel it in me
my words start to tremble
i've forgotten how to see
my home ain't here, this is not mine
i've let these things heal with time

these wounds won't heal
when you keep scratching them
to make you feel, to make us feel

every second of the day
i feel it in me
my words start to tremble
i've forgotten how to see
my home ain't here, this is not mine
i've let these things heal with time

i held hands high
praying for you to heal these cries

every second of the day
i feel it in me
my words start to tremble
i've forgotten how to see
my home ain't here, this is not mine
i've let these things heal with time

and the darkest life
has never been so easy to see
when you lead my path
i know who i need to be
Track Name: 04. As The Water Floats
here i go again, another day and night i've seen this all before
here i stay humble and broken in the same rathole
reading this place like an open book
regardless of the risks i took and the chances we've all made
i am not afraid of death anymore
after all i've seen here, after every closed door
and everything seems so sincere
but i've decided to make my stand right here

every moment filled with joy
every second filled with pain
this place is tearing me apart
so tell me, what's left for me to enjoy

like a breath of cold i remember what i've been told
of the place i call my home, call my home
all the years and all the places i used to know

every moment filled with joy
every second filled with pain
this place is tearing me apart
so tell me, what's left for me to enjoy

as i pave these streets i remember all the promises you promised to keep
after 90 days of lies nothing has changed like you once promised to me
and i have seen those days burn to the ground
with my own two fucking eyes
own two fucking eyes

this town has nothing to offer for me
place with people full of lies
is not a place to be
Track Name: 05. Hollow Words
when you plant the seed
would you even try
to fill the need
of your sons that bury the words
and you swore you'd be there
to catch me when I fall
i found myself falling
falling through the cracks

you can't stop the current but you can learn to swim
stay afloat, save yourself from drowning
when reality starts beating your dreams
it's the moment you want to stay awake
want to stay awake

in came the fog
to bring closure
this absence, this nothingness
these hollow words
the first half and you have vanished
no sign of you is left behind
after years of searching myself
i've come to conclusion that
none of this is real
none of this is true
while this place needs a hope
your behavior stays cruel

don't carry around your crown
where you can't wear it
this place is already filled
with cowards just like you
don't carry around your crown
where you can't wear it
if he hears my thoughts
maybe you should hear them too

maybe some day, some time
you will clean the mess you've made
even if that time ever comes
i knew you wouldn't stay
every mile left on this road
the gray in your eyes
has never seemed so dreary

promises made
no longer hold

as my eyes keep staring at these fragile emotions
i make my statement to stay on my own two feet
whats the point of having an ocean
if your ship won't have a lead
we were not made for this
we were not meant to cross this bridge
to cross this bridge
we were meant to burn down with it
it's out of our hands now
roll the dice
let the fate decide
to define the rest of our lives
Track Name: 06. Lights
when the lights go out
and the encore is done
you still have nothing
to fill the outcome
the man, the dreamer
he is the only one

and you still make your bed just to lie in
but darling i make my bed to die in it
i make my bed to die in it
just to die in it
