Track Name: The End Of Progression
So they're saying
That the end is coming
I'm saying that
They don't know nothing

It's been right here
(It's been right here)
The whole time
(The whole time)
Disguised as a straight line

(Ah, ah)
If we already knew who to be
(Ah, ah)
Time is something
That we wouldn't need

One by one
You will lose yourself
As you keep on following
Following footsteps
That lead the wrong direction

One by one
You are fading out
As you're slowly settling
Settling for the same
You play it safe
You end progression

Retreating to the same old places
Breeding all the same old faces
Youth is wasted on the young
Life is wasted on the living ones

(Ah, ah)
If we already knew who to be
(Ah, ah)
Time is something
That we wouldn't need

One by one
You will lose yourself
As you keep on following
Following footsteps
That lead the wrong direction

One by one
You are fading out
As you're slowly settling
Settling for the same
You play it safe
You end progression

I've been cheated
I've been broken
And it made me a better man
Something you will never say

And you will end
Before beginning
The same as you ever were
Quietly you'll slip away

One by one
You will lose yourself
As you keep on following
Following footsteps
That lead the wrong direction

One by one
You are fading out
As you're slowly settling
Settling for the same
You play it safe
You end progression

You play it safe
You end progression
Track Name: Better Life
When I drive to fast and hit a wall
Or drink myself to the hospital
I'm the only one to blame
(Blame, blame, blame)

And as sirens haunt my city streets
And though that sound is after me
Calmly I await the change
(Change, change, change)

So don't wait
For the world to get better
You're gonna waste
The time you have
Ah, ah, and you won't get it back

When you fall
When you break
When you wish you didn't feel

Keep your head
Don't forget
It's the pain that makes us real

I know most of the time
It's hard to keep in mind
From lessons learned
Comes better life, better life

When I play too hard
And break my bones
Depress myself to the lowest lows
I'm the only one to blame
(Blame, blame, blame)

'Cause the choice is mine
And mine alone
And I choose to learn as I go
Clarity will come from pain
(Pain, pain, pain)

So don't wait
For the world to get better
You're gonna waste
The time you have
Ah, ah, and you won't get it back

When you fall
When you break
When you wish you didn't feel

Keep your head
Don't forget
It's the pain that makes us real

I know most of the time
It's hard to keep in mind
From lessons learned
Comes better life, better life

So don't wait
(Oh)
For the world to get better

So don't wait
(Oh)
For the world to get better

My understanding of
The world feels broken
And it's demanding
My immediate attention

You're looking up
Believing you will leave
Your problems below
Forget what you believe
Use what you know
(Use what you know)

When you fall
When you break
When you wish you didn't feel

Keep your head
Don't forget
It's the pain that makes us real

I know most of the time
(Most of the time)
It's hard to keep in mind
(Keep in mind)
From lessons learned
(Lessons learned)
Comes better life, better life
Track Name: Natural Competition
Compete to survive it's a
Way of life
It is natural competition

When we have our doubts
The weak are weeded out
It is natural selection

This action brings me to you
I've no clue
How you stand here now
Has it failed somehow

And now you're walking the earth
With your curse
You are inside out

Who you are
Is really coming together
Your color's coming
Under your skin

And you will glow
A shade of yellow forever
Letting people know
To never ever let you in

Your lack of speech
Makes me believe
You were skipped by evolution

There are sounds we make
That could set things straight
But you don't know how to use them

Afraid to open your mouth
It comes out in a clearer way
Than you ever could say

And now you're walking the earth
With your curse
Slowly fading away

Who you are
Is really coming together
Your color's coming
Under your skin

And you will glow
A shade of yellow forever
Letting people know
To never ever let you in

And now you're tangled
In a wicked web
Made of everything
That you wish you never did
(That you wish you never did)

Who you are
Is really coming together
Your color's coming
Under your skin

And you will glow
A shade of yellow forever
Letting people know
To never ever let you in

Let you in
Track Name: When It Won't Save You
The way that I feel
And what supposed to be real
Strongly disagree
There is one thing
I keep in front of me

'Cause cash won't save
Cars won't transcend the grave
I call everyone I know
The only things of value
I could ever own

It worries my mind
Knowing days of my life
Slowly disappear
Is there something
That I should be doing here

With my time
Should I fall in line
I can't chase the American dream
Trading life for money
Never made much sense to me

And some may say
That I'm already gone

But I say
Hey, if I'm wrong at all
For living this way
I'm alright being wrong

And I say
Hey, as i slowly let
Possession slip away
I feel I belong
I'm alright being wrong

I try and I try
To find appeal in nine to five
But I never win
Stuck in days
That don't seem to begin

The answer I find
To the question in mind
King of diamonds, kings of hearts
One dies loved
And one is dead from the very start

And some may say
That I'm already gone

But I say
Hey, if I'm wrong at all
For living this way
I'm alright being wrong

And I say
Hey, as I slowly let
Possession slip away
I feel I belong
I'm alright being wrong

And things like this
Aren't hard to resist
As my mind persists
Allowing absolutely no interest

In things that fade
As fast as they
Accumulate
I refuse to bury myself that way

Hey, if I'm wrong at all
For living this way
I'm alright being wrong

And I say
Hey, if I'm wrong at all
For living this way
I'm alright being wrong

And I say
Hey, as I slowly let
Possession slip away
I feel I belong
I'm alright being wrong
Track Name: Make Them Remember
What you can't stand
Don't let it grow
Don't let the roots
Entangle your soul
('Tangle your soul)

Wasting no one's time
But your own
You'll be what you've done
Not what you think of
When you're alone

Now that I've got something to say
I'll open up my mouth
So here's to finding your way
Finding your way

How will you make
Them remember your name
When everyone here
Seems exactly the same

But there's so much to give up
Don't just throw it away
So go on and make
Them remember your name

When the world seems to go wrong
The day that you feel
Like you don't belong

Keep in mind life's just a song
A song without words
Waiting for you to sing along

Now that I've got something to say
I'll open up my mouth
So here's to finding your way
Finding your way

(Oh, oh)
How will you make
(Oh, oh)
Them remember your name
(Oh, oh)
When everyone here
(Oh, oh)
Seems exactly the same

(Oh, oh)
But there's so much to give up
(Oh, oh)
Don't just throw it away
(Oh, oh)
So go on and make
(Oh, oh)
Them remember your name

You're fine
You're fine
Don't waste
The rest of your life

You're fine
You're fine
Don't waste
The rest of your life

How will you make
Them remember your name
When everyone here
Seems exactly the same

(Oh, oh)
How will you make
(Oh, oh)
Them remember your name
(Oh, oh)
When everyone here
(Oh, oh)
Seems exactly the same

(Oh, oh)
But there's so much to give up
(Oh, oh)
Don't just throw it away
(Oh, oh)
So go on and make
(Oh, oh)
Them remember your name
Track Name: Keeping Pace With Planes
I am drowning in dry land
Distance is swallowing me
And this keeps my sanity close
But far from inside of my body

Complete lunacy
I will no longer
Keep this within me

The closest thing
To me at heart
Is the furthest thing
Away to touch

And all these undeservers
Take for granted what
We deserve so much

The world has been
Pulled to my feet
Closer than it's ever been
And this is something to live for
The beautiful mess I am in

Complete lunacy
I will no longer
Keep this within me

The closest thing
To me at heart
Is the furthest thing
Away to touch

And all these undeservers
Take for granted what
We deserve so much

I know this feeling's heaven sent
And I am so confident
I will regain my sanity
When goodbye's a memory

Complete lunacy
I will no longer
Keep this within me

The closest thing
To me at heart
Is the furthest thing
Away

And all these undeservers
Take for granted what
We deserve

(Oh, oh, oh)
The whole entire world is not enough
(Oh)
To make my body still
(Oh, oh, oh)
And no matter of miles
(Oh)
Could make a mockery of iron will
Track Name: ... Made Ghosts
I don't want to believe
That it's too late, too late
But you're showing me
It may be too late, too late

Open your eyes
You're the dead in disguise
Forget your Friday night
Think about your life

Believe me
There has to be
A better way
For everything

I don't want to be
The bearer of bad news
But I will

And I don't want to believe
That it's too late, too late
But you're showing me
It may be too late, too late

Things you don't know
(Things you don't know)
Will continue to grow
(Continue to grow)
Your weakness is exposed
And we're all letting go

Believe me
There has to be
A better way
For everything

I don't want to be
The bearer of bad news
But I will

(Whoa)
And I don't want to believe
(Oh, oh)
That it's too late, too late
(Whoa)
But you're showing me
(Oh, oh)
It may be too late, too late

(Whoa)
And I don't want to believe
(Oh, oh)
That I am wasting all my time
(Whoa)
On a lost cause that won't listen
(Oh, oh)
Who will gladly live a lie

Since you refuse my help again
(Since you refuse my help again)
I'll say goodbye to you my friend
(I'll say goodbye to you my friend)
Best of luck to you
(Best of luck to you)

(Whoa)
And I don't want to believe
(Oh, oh)
That it's too late, too late
(Whoa)
But you're showing me
(Oh, oh)
It may be too late, too late

(Whoa)
And I don't want to believe
(Oh, oh)
That I am wasting all my time
(Whoa)
On a lost cause that won't listen
(Oh, oh)
Who will gladly live a lie
Track Name: Comfort Far Away
Nowhere to go
As the day comes to a close
Here's where I fear
I am losing all control

I stay in this town
Where I've wasted countless days
As I close my eyes
I feel comfort far away

When I sleep, when I dream
Does somebody
Take control of me

When I sleep, when I dream
Does someone else
Take control of my body

I wake the next day
And see I haven't moved
All that I saw
Just a fabricated truth

It's not hard to feel
Like a hollow human shell
And she's next to me
Have I wasted her as well

When I sleep, when I dream
Does somebody
Take control of me

When I sleep, when I dream
Does someone else
Take control of my body

When I sleep, when I dream
If someone else
Takes control of me

Show me I'm
Capable of great things
Tell me I
Haven't wasted my body

Help me out
Allow me to truly exist
Guide me out
'Cause I know I'm better than this

When I sleep, when I dream
Does somebody
Take control of me

When I sleep, when I dream
Does someone else
Take control of my body

When I sleep, when I dream
If someone else
Takes control of me

Show me I'm
Capable of great things
Tell me I
Haven't wasted my body

Help me out
Allow me to truly exist
Guide me out
'Cause I know I'm better than this
Track Name: Miss America
It's a basic human need
Feeling beautiful
But you coat your broken body
So subliminal
(So subliminal)

And the colors that you wear
Hide a criminal
You devour classic beauty
You destroy it all

There's no easy way to say this

Miss America
Is a slave from the waist down
Stealing the whole town's love
And good little girls
Won't stay away

It's amazing how quickly
They shed their youth
As you capture everyone
With your distorted truth

Your words and your ways
Are absolute
As you rob them of potential
To be just like you

There's no easy way to say this

There's no pretty way to say this

Miss America
Is a slave from the waist down
Stealing the whole town's love
And good little girls
Won't stay away

(Stay, stay, stay)
Stay away

(Stay, stay, stay)
Stay away

(Stay, stay, stay)
Stay away

(Stay, stay, stay)
Stay away

Miss America
Is a slave from the waist down
Stealing the whole town's love
And good little girls
Won't stay away
Track Name: The Color 21
[Instrumental]
Track Name: Illuminati
Hello
I'll press my lips
To yours to explain
Sporadically
Use my tongue to reiterate

In the form of an
Oxygen dream
I'm dying to breathe you deeply

Some day, some day
I'll have to turn and walk away
To find my place
I'll search this whole world over

But everything I am
You've got it, you've got it
And I will return
I swear it, I swear it

Don't fear
Though I am gone
I'm still right here
Just like I've been
For twenty-one years

And it's all that
I know how to be
I promise, don't worry about me

Some day, some day
I'll have to turn and walk away
To find my place
I'll search this whole world over

But everything I am
You've got it, you've got it
And I will return
I swear it, I swear it

I'll return to you the day
Your hope is frayed
At all the ends

And I'll cauterize
Your hand in mine
And never let go

Some day, some day
(Some day)
I'll have to turn and walk away
To find my place
(Find my place)
I'll search this whole world over

But everything I am
(All I am)
You've got it, you've got it
And I will return
(I'll return)
I swear it, I swear it
