Track Name: Battles
Battles:

Thank god it's over
Fearful from this dream
Frozen with fever
Pinched skin confirms it's real

But i'm ok x2

Why we fail to run away, i'll never know
But we still try
Cannot fight what isn't real, not with these hands
Not with this mind
The battles inside you

Found light in shadows
Replaced my broken parts
Fell out of favour
Turning to sabotage

But i'm ok x2

Why we fail to run away, i'll never know
But we still try
Cannot fight what isn't real, not with these hands
Not with this mind
The battle's inside you

I don't want to sleep
If I will see your face again
Forced to close my eyes
Let me out of this dream x2
Track Name: Repeat
Well i've never known a calm like this, and I know you still don't care
The chains you used to hold them down have rusted in this air
Try to raise themselves up to their knees, strength out from despair
Hopeful lights will lead the way, out from this demons lair.

Repeat yourself and your words will lose their value given time
So keep them close

We have nothing left to say
But we'll sing this anyway
Anyway! x2

As they stare out from a cold abyss, something stirs outside
They've come too far to turn around, or run away and hide
Weapons formed from this new strength is all they really need
Silently they lead the charge against this devils seed

Repeat yourself and your words will lose their value given time
So keep them close

There is nothing left to say
But these words keep falling out
And while we know you're not listening
We will sing this anyway
Anyway! x4

We have nothing left to say
But we'll sing this anyway
Track Name: Ways to make you stay
Up till this point we've been holding on, praying for a sign
From this height, a fall like that would probably kill us all
Balance has gone, logical thoughts become a distant memory
One by one, our numbers start to fray as they lose their way they

Scream and shout, they don't say
For crying out loud, don't do this now
I'm running out, of ways to make you stay
Ways to make you stay
Reasons to make you stay
Ways to make you stay

The fall begins, so we close our eyes out of blinding fear.
Open your eyes, only then you'll see the ground is coming.

Scream and shout, they don't say
For crying out loud, don't do this now
I'm running out, of ways to make you stay
Ways to make you stay
Reasons to make you stay
Ways to make you stay

Ways to make you stay (rep to end)
Track Name: A lot to answer for (feat Christina Marie)
How could we let things get so bad
Just take a look at what you've done
Searching for truths they never had
Through deceit and lies, I hope you burn

I want you to show me how, how we can sort this out
The duty of care you have needs to erase this doubt
And as this is all your fault, you need to make this right
Cause it's down to you, it's down to you.

Celebrity killers fill our screens
The lives of the victims on demand
We've got to put this show on hold
Some stories better left untold
I want you to show me how, how we can sort this out
The duty of care you have needs to erase this doubt
And as this is all your fault, you need to make this right
Cause it's down to you, it's down to you.
Cause it's down to you, it's down to you.

You've got a lot to answer for
Cause you've got a lot to answer for
You've got a lot to answer for
Cause you've got a lot to answer for

You've got a lot to answer for
Cause you've got a lot to answer for
You've got a lot to answer for
Cause you've got a lot to answer for

I want you to show me how, how we can sort this out
The duty of care you have needs to erase this doubt
And as this is all your fault, you need to make this right
Cause it's down to you, it's down to you.
Cause it's down to you, it's down to you.
It's down to you
