01. The Art Of Loss

Take a long hard look
Into my rear view mirror,
At the darkened path
That left me broken and blind.

I'll never know where it went wrong,
So I won't try again.
I'll surrender to the simple thought
Of losing everything.

She's the voice I hear
When slipping out of reason,
She took from me the cause
I thought I'd never deny.

I'll never know where it went wrong.
I'll never try again,
I've surrendered to the simple thought
Of losing everything.

I let you write into my dreams
Hoping you'd never walk away,
And I blame you for it.
I'll never know, I'll never know...

I'll never try again,
I'll surrender to the simple thought
Of losing everything.


02. In The End

The war fell upon us when we least expected,
Our world's coming to an end.
I look out the door and see the city burning,
Our memories wrapped in flames.

But in the end it's just you and me,
In the end it's just you I see.
When the pain grows stronger
I'll find the cure in your eyes,
And your eyes will be my guide.

I pick up the pieces of what's left of my life
Right after the lights go off;
Destroy every ounce of faith that's left within me,
I'm ready to let it go

Cause in the end it's just you and me,
In the end it's just you I see.
When the pain grows stronger
I'll find the cure in your eyes,
And your eyes will be my guide.

In the end it's just you and me,
In the end it's just you I see.
When the pain grows stronger
I'll find the cure in your eyes,
And your eyes will be my guide.


03. Now Or Never

Failure broke your best intentions,
Left you cold and insecure,
Wondering if your illusions
Are something still worth fighting for.
Expectation fills their faces:
Will you stand or will you fall?
This is not the last deception
That you will ever come across

You cannot change your mind,
You've got to take the world
You cannot fail; the time to act is now.

Time will have no mercy on us,
Time will flow relentlessly;
We can't take the hours for granted
While in pursuit of our beliefs.
I will keep on marching forward,
I will never close my eyes,
My devotion and your glory
Fade every time you're out of sight.

You cannot change your mind,
You've got to change the world
You cannot fail; the time to act is now or never.
You cannot change your mind,
You've got to take the world
You cannot fail; the time to act is now or never.

You cannot change your mind,
You'll take over the world
You cannot fail; the time to act is now or never.
You cannot change your mind,
You've got to take the world
You cannot fail; the time to act is now or never.


04. When You Hurt Me The Most

The air was cold the night I fled,
Your eyes were more than I could take;
I ran so fast, I ran like hell,
And still wasn't able to escape...
The picture's still fixed in my head:
The stage was all set at my request;
You took the role, you played it well,
I knew it would be easy for you.

Strike me harder now,
Push me to the ground.
Pain is sweeter coming from your hand,
I love you when you hurt me the most.

So fell the lash repeatedly,
The icy words cut me deeper still;
I begged for more, you gave no less,
Surrendering fully to the game.
You took control, I took the blame,
You had enough so you looked away;
Deprived of love, deprived of pain,
No choice but to keep on sinking.

Strike me harder now,
Push me to the ground.
Pain is sweeter coming from your hand,
Don't you leave me when I need you the most.

No pain or love left for your slave;
My heart is torn yet you smile the same.
I'll break the vow,
I'll tell myself the words that free me from you.

Strike me harder now,
Push me to the ground.
Pain is sweeter coming from your hand,
Don't you leave me when I need you the most.

The air was cold the night I fled,
The pain was more than I could take.
You've learned your role; you'll play it well,
I know it will be easy for you.


05. Run Away

You were a light,
A stroke of hope amongst the dark;
You were the chance
For me to open up my heart.
Yet I saw you fly away from me
And I didn't know how to keep you back.

So close, so near,
My every thought was filled with you;
Can't take the risk
Of loosing and not pulling through,
So I pushed you away from me
And I know you won't be coming back.

My loneliness is wrapped in fear,
it's taking the lead, so I'm gonna stay
Behind the comfort of a dream.
I want to get near, but I gotta say
It's so much easier to run away.

It hurts to say
I'm not as strong as I proclaim;
I hide my grief
But it will find me anyway,
Cuz I pushed you away from me
And I know you won't be coming back.

My loneliness is wrapped in fear,
It's taking the lead, so I'm gonna stay
Behind the comfort of a dream.
I want to get near, but I gotta say
It's so much easier to run away.


06. Games We Play

We're hurting
As our innocence decays,
And I wonder: will it ever be the same?

You'll tear me apart
In the course of the game;
Rules were written
In ways I can't understand.

He never meant it
But that won't prevent my soul from breaking.

Why do you hide from me,
Why do you lie?
I'll take the weaknesses
That rattle my life
And blame you for them.
How have I let you down,
What do you mean?
You can't just take the pain
In all that you see
And blame me for it.

I'll tear you apart,
Trust me I know just the way;
But I wonder,
Will I ever feel the same?

I never meant it,
But that won't prevent your soul from breaking.

Why do you hide from me,
Why do you lie?
I'll take the weaknesses
That rattle my life
And blame you for them.
How have I let you down,
What do you mean?
You can't just take the pain
In all that you see
And blame me for it.

I didn't mean to cause you pain,
It's just all part of the game.


07. This Endless Night

Buried in my pillow
Are the marks of your mistake;
As soon as I lay down
I'll feel them closing in.

Like hitting replay, I'm already there…
Going through the story
I should've never lived.

Pull me through this endless night.

There's a ghost by the door,
There's a memory that won't let me go.
Will you please set me free
From the burden that won't let me sleep?

Buried in my pillow,
To forever taint my dreams,
Are those hurtful moments
I should have never lived.

I'll try everything to stay awake,
And forget the story
That's taking the best of me.

Pull me through this endless night.

There's a ghost by the door,
There's a memory that won't let me go.
Should I keep looking in,
in the hope I'll ever feel again?
I don't know…

There's a ghost
Bearing memories that won't let me go.
Will you please set me free
From the burden that won't let me be?


08. My Leader

You, of endless charm and grace,
You told a hypnotic tale.
You, bearing sweet promises,
Sunk deep into the need
And challenged everything.

I had nowhere to run to;
I was helplessly seduced
By the power of your name,
And every word you said
Seemed like an answer.

You can't save me from falling
Now the moment slipped away;
When the vision is over
I'll return with nothing left.

You, you broke my heart in two,
You, equally brave and cruel.
By the power of your name
A thousand minds gave in to madness.

You can't save me from falling
Now the moment slipped away;
When the vision is over
I'll return with nothing left.

He is taking me under...

You can't save me from falling
Now the moment slipped away;
When the vision is over
I'll return with nothing left.

Was I so blind
Not to see through the disguise
That covered your frozen heart?
Who'll lead us now, long after you're gone?


09. Burn My Pain

A thrill, a sigh...
My lips are trembling.
Your breath is thick,
it blows me away.
I know why, I know why,
it's the curse you're weaving.
And I know I, I know I
Am more than willing to comply.

The rush, the dance
ignite my senses.
You hear my plea,
it drives you nearer.
You know why, you know why,
it's the spell that binds us.
And I know I, I know I
Am more than willing to comply.

I toss and turn
As sleep evades me;
The waves are strong,
The urge is stronger.

Burn my pain away,
Sing the song that I long for.
Find the flame within
And reveal all I need to know.
Burn this pain away,
My soul waits in sweet devotion;
All emotions swell
As I cry out for you.

Burn my pain away,
Sing the song that I long for.
Find the flame within
And reveal all I need to know.
Burn this pain away,
My soul waits in sweet devotion;
All emotions swell
As I cry out for you.


10. Let Me In

Say, that must be such a lonely cell;
You hide, you strain to conceal the pain

Say, it must be a demanding task
To walk with the chains
You refuse to break.

If you let me in I'll try to free you,
If you let me in I'll rescue your mind.

And I fear for you.

Take all you need, I will give it all
To break the disease
That confines your soul.

Take all you need,
Every word, every sigh,
To cut through the fear
That burns down your life.

If you let me in I'll try to free you,
If you let me in I'll swallow your pride.
If you let me in I'll try to free you,
If you let me in I'll rescue your mind.

And I fear for you.

If you let me in I'll try to free you,
If you let me in I'll swallow your pride.
If you let me in I'll try to free you,
If you let me in I'll rescue your mind.


11. Street Spirit

Rows of houses, all bearing down on me
I can feel their blue hands touching me
All these things into position
All these things we'll one day swallow whole

And fade out again and fade out

This machine will, will not communicate
These thoughts and the strain I am under
Be a world child, form a circle
Before we all go under

And fade out again and fade out again

Cracked eggs, dead birds
Scream as they fight for life
I can feel death, can see its beady eyes
All these things into position
All these things we'll one day swallow whole

And fade out again and fade out again

Immerse your soul in love
Immerse your soul in love.


12. A Part Of You

Turn loose the demons
That control your ways;
Unleash your anger,
What are you waiting for.
Come on, my dear,
I can take the blow;
Blame it all on me,
What are you waiting for?

Feed on the years
Of unmeasured pain;
Burn every letter
Oh, how we've done you wrong.
Connect the pieces of a master plan,
Blame me for every flaw,
What are you waiting for?
It's my fault; it's my own fault...

We loved till we could love no more,
We gave till we could give no more.

They brought the night,
They brought the reasons for you to drown
Oh, how we've done you wrong.
They broke your name, you could not deny it;
Helpless child, how could they do you wrong?
Is it over?

We loved till we could love no more,
We gave till we could give no more.

El enemigo está en tu interior, (the enemy is inside you)
A part of you I will never know.

We loved till we could love no more,
We gave till we could give no more.

El enemigo está en tu interior, (the enemy is inside you)
A part of you I will never know.
You're fighting alone, all alone.


13. All I Know

Somewhere,
Someone has turned my thoughts
Into nightmares.
Somehow their words
Are now my own, and I'm sure

They can take all I know
And break it to pieces,
They can take all I know.

Somewhere,
Someone is on the run
With my true self,
Leaving a shadow on my wall.
Somehow the wounds are always there
In the mirror,
Somehow the horror never stops,

And I'm sure
You can take all I know
And break it to pieces,
Every trace of my love
Is lost in the fire.
Lléname de melancolía.
(Fill me with melancholy)
Truth falls below the ideal.


14. Far And Apart

That one thing
that forced us to unite
is stretching and sinking in our hearts.
I won't break my vow for anything,
even being a world apart.

Far, so far.
Apart.
So far.
If there's a light filling your eye
tell it to take me where you are,
away from the painful humming of the stars.

I know it can't happen now,
and I'm aching while swimming through the hours.
But I won't break this vow for anything,
even being a world apart.

Far, so far.
Apart.
So far.
If there's a light filling your eye
tell it to take me where you are,
away from the painful humming of the stars.

Far, so far.
Apart.
So far.

I won't break this vow for anything,
even being a world apart.
I won't break this vow for anything,
even being a world apart.
