Track Name: 2401
You ever feel like life's a test you can't study for?
You always give it your best but always come up short
I think we should try something new
But it don't matter cause we're young and it's not up to you

How did it get this far?
Who do they think they are?

Workin hard to stay in line
Anything to stay alive,
In this world where we are
Not so different.
But we always get caught up
In this competition
We always try but we're still
Beat by the kid with the 2401

Today feels so strange cause it's not how it should be.
What will it take for everyone else to see?
We would be just so much better off,
You say you play to win but all you do is count your losses

Track Name: Night at the Movies
Today was meant to be a fair event,
But you just can't seem see other people
We just want some sanity
But you are so ignorant

I! (I!)
Know! (Know!)
You never meant any harm but
You just had to and ruin the whole damn thing now
We! (Are!)
Our! (Own!)
Trying to live our lives yeah,
But you just can't seem to get over yourself now

It's hard to believe you can't see the problem
When you are so alone against the crowd
I think you should call it a day
But you're just out of control

Track Name: Can't Wait for Tomorrow
Today I met a man who was already inside, I confide, but he didnt even know it yet
Looked in his eyes, realized all the lies, covered up by popular opinion
And I, to my surprise, can't seem to find the truth, only demise and self-destructive habits
So why, why, why? Seems like no one else'll try
To see beyond the foolish perceptions that they're given
And I won't side with the media's feed
That image is the meaning of the life we're livin'

I can't find, the strength to take this any longer
Now's the time, to show them all they are wrong and
Seize the day before it's too late,
Today is ours, and I just can't wait for tomorrow

I know at first it seems hard to believe
That reality isn't quite what we perceive
That image never holds any true meaning
And victories are made of all the little things
Now I'm just a guy with flaws and opinions
But sometimes I feel like the only one that's tryin
Cause in the end its yourself that you're cheatin
And I see what you're saying but I just won't give in


I can't find, the strength to take this any longer
Now's the time, to show them all they are wrong and
Seize the day before it's too late,
Today is ours, or there might not be a tomorrow
Track Name: One
Well here I go again tonight
Not sure how I found myself here again
I guess it's all one giant fight for my life.
And these regrets will haunt me till the end.
And I don't know what I'm waiting for,
But if I ever get outta here,
I know that I'll be left behind somehow.
'Cause all these dreams can't pay the bills,
But I know that if I try again I will

One chance, one stand, one time to say 'I win.'
(I need this, y'know I need this)
One 'A,' one day, one way to help me out.
(I need this, y'know I need this)

Y'know I think back on the days,
When things seemed so much simpler to me
My memory's now a blurry haze,
And I'd give almost anything see again.
But I know, I won't,
Ever forget I can,
I just don't know what's happening to me.
Maybe it's time I just let go,
'Cause I was so much better off back then

Track Name: Reconstruction, Pt. 2
You got your hands in the air and your feet on the ground
You keep lookin up, but you only fall down
A fight for your life and there's only one way out
Your lips, they move but make not a single sound

To them, with all your thoughts in hand,
You can't seem to be yourself

You can't seem to find,
Who you are,
Every helping hand is not enough,
And every door is locked.
It's something we all go through,
Your best solution is right behind you.

You're runnin around but you're stayin in line
You don't even know what you're tryin to find
Just close your eyes & open your mind
Day after day feels just like a mundane lie

It's true, and it all comes back to you
Just try to make it through


You will find a way out
Just don't give up
Track Name: Run Away
You say it's time to find our own directions in life,
Well I think it's time that we both find our
Selves in these lies, Can't compromise,
The truth that you hide, to make this all easy,

But I can show you the way,
But you're so lost and afraid

So go, and run away,
Like it's the right thing to do
Like it's your right to choose,
And I'll say what I like,
It's my right to fight,
for what I believe,
So why can't you realize it's
More than what you see,
Why can't you believe?

You say I've been blind from the start
And that I always take my actions too far
Well I can't disagree, I haven't been me,
But listen to reason and just think more clearly cause

There's hope for you and me, but you only
See what you believe


So go, and run away,
Like it's the right thing to do
Like it's your right to choose,
And I'll say what I like,
It's my right to fight,
Cause I'll never believe,
The excuses you feed me,

So go, and run away,
Like it's the right thing to do
Cause I'm finished with you
So say what you like,
'Cause I'm done with this fight,
I'll never believe,
The excuses you feed me,
For decision you can't face,
Now my times been a waste.
Track Name: In the Long Run
It’s Ten O’clock and I can’t sleep thinking about problems and possibly absolute failure
Got no second chance, got no back up plans, I’ve got to force him out, got to drown him dead.
There’s a voice in my head that makes me all but dread the idea of giving up to these notions.
It’s got me so fed up, I think I’ve got to get up let me see if I can seize the moment

And I, held on, to the simple things in life that keep me
So, alive, because they really mean that much to me
As I said, before, that the problems probably go away
In the long run, I let go.
In the long run I let go.

An hour later and I’m sittin’ up in my bed wondering what’s going through my head
Should I go to sleep or let it all sink deep? I have to choose before it all is set aside.
A hand ticks by and I dry my eyes so I can see what lies before me.
When the morning shines I hope the devil cries because he couldn’t put the weight upon me.


Now it’s midnight this can be the worst time, because I’m thinking about where it’s going to lead.
This can’t be good, it can’t be good.
Before sunrise this could be the last time that I win in the fight for my life.
This can be won, it can be won.

And I feel, that worst begins to appear, And I feel, that the best begins to shatter.
And I feel, that the hopes and dreams of my field, they have all begun to shatter, they have all begun to shatter.
Track Name: Last Candle
We say, certain things will never change,
Even though, so many things will have to go,
And they will leave behind such big,
Holes to now fill with the road that lies ahead...

It's hard to believe we've come so far,
Just think how young we were when it,
Starts to wear you down you know you've,
Got to carry on you know you're strong...

We're burning the last candle that we
Never should've had,
But I wouldn't take back any of them,
So until the last flame dies,
Let's paint the town with the colored wax tonight,
Forget the rules and road signs left behind,
Cause we don't even know, where we'll end up after tonight.

When I was young, I never
Thought I'd grow this tall,
See this far passed the stars, but boy did we dream.
Now that we're here,
Everything just feels so weird,
All I can do is just hold tight to everything I hold dear.

(It's been so long, I can't do this,
So don't fall out please, don't fall out again.)
Track Name: Miles Ahead
Every single day I'd fear, If I'd ever get here.
It's been a rough year or so, But I can finally let it go.
I may never understand, why I was so worried, or why I couldn't believe them.
The past two years came back in my life, in the past two months and now everything's right and I, have never been more happy

At least that I could recall,
it's just been so damn long.
I never thought I'd end this nightmare.
I seeya fallin' down, fallin' on your own.
At least that's how you feel, cause i can tell you boy I've been there

Now I am,
Seeing things more clearly, coming back here from the edge,
Here I am,
Looking forward to every day, seeing everything in a whole new way.

The view from up here has shown me, I was never alone down there,
So don't you ever feel let down, just take a look around.
Miles ahead, you'll be on top again soon.
So just trust me if you feel left out, let me erase all of your doubts,
Cause I know that you can make

So please believe me, cause I know wouldn't have,
just the other day, before this all happened.
I know it seems strange,you might just say its luck,
but I'm thinking that there's something better out there


I know, I never believed I could
So I don't, blame you for this
Just know, that I am here with you,
So don't, ever be afraid.

The past two years came back in my life, in the past two months and now everything's right and I, have never been more happy,
Cause it feels so great just to be alive, and know in my heart I'll be alright,
but now, all I see is you...
