Track Name: On Mountain Tops
The rush now coming in
Brace yourself it's hard hitting
On and on it's here to make
a statement in your heart so face it

You're maxed out but the tops not coming
You can't stop that heart from thumping
All around the crowd is bumping now it's time
to get that pulse racing

Run out of excuses and lose control
Run out of excuses and find your soul

Let the sound consume you
And shed all your pain
You'll find this peace surrounds you
So bright always been inside you
Let the sound consume you
And shed all your pain
You'll find this peace surrounds you
So bright always been inside you


Break from the things that hold me down
On to the things that make me sound
Close to the universe's call on my soul
Call it what you want
But nothing comes close
To the warmth of this mountain's glow

Let the sound consume you
And shed all your pain
You'll find this peace surrounds you
So bright always been inside you
Let the sound consume you
And shed all your pain
You'll find this peace surrounds you
So bright always been inside you
Track Name: Real Friends High Five
Broke in to the cell I was held in
Did your best, saw the pain I'd been holding
Then you called me your best friend

No one knows all the things that we've seen in
the whole world but we somehow still beat them
You showed me not to be hopeless

Pulled me from the dark
Always showed me from the start, you gave your word
You weren't being fake, you knocked on wood
I never thought you could

From the lies I'd heard
And how many people could but never would
Lost track of the knives pulled from my back
Now I sit here and laugh

We stole the master plan
Got back all the things we wanted
And how we never lost it, screams a testament
to our family bonds unbroken
We stole the master plan
Got back all the things we wanted
And how we never lost it, screams a testament
to our family bonds unbroken

We're still not broken
Like eagles soaring
We're still not broken
Like eagles

Backing down is just not our style
We're holding it down when nobody else would

Come on I'll let you right in
Come on lets watch them unravel
Come on we've got common ground
They'll see how far we're over them now
Come on I'll let you right in
Come on lets watch them unravel
Come on we've got common ground
They'll see how far we're over them now

We stole the master plan
Got back all the things we wanted
And how we never lost it, screams a testament
to our family bonds unbroken
We stole the master plan
Got back all the things we wanted
And how we never lost it, screams a testament
to our family bonds unbroken
Track Name: Envy's A Problem
Burning outs been my problem
Since I saw how quick that you solved it
And I swore my place was a seat in the house
Next to the best of the best (Guess I was wrong)
Whats a fire if you're freezing?
And how long did it take it relieve it?
I don't think I could do what you did to fit in
When you sold your soul to the heathens

I found a way out but it still haunts my house
How much I never knew And how much I'll never know

I hate it
Oh I hate it
Track Name: What Never Was
I never said I cared

You taught me a lesson
How to never give you a reason to come around
and show me the act that you play so well

The problems you made
And how many times you faked
your empty words
I lost the touch to show you love
Cause you never could


Stop ringing in my head
That whole time I believed you wanted
All that I could give
But you never wanted to be honest
Always in my head
The whole time I thought you wanted
So much I could give
But you couldn't give me a promise

I've fallen asleep now and I can't wake from this nightmare
Will you ever care if I climb out or stay here forever?

Will I ever thank you
even in my dreams
Wondering if I was the one to leave there bitter
Does it make you the winner?


Stop ringing in my head
That whole time I believed you wanted
All that I could give
But you never wanted to be honest
Always in my head
The whole time I thought you wanted
So much I could give
But you couldn't give me a promise

I've lost my senses to see
All those intricate things so free
And though I've kept the drive to move on
I can't help thinking that I'll be last

Don't let me be last
I Can't think what'd be worse
Please don't let me be last
I'm so chained by these words

Stop ringing in my head
That whole time I believed you wanted
All that I could give
But you never wanted to be honest
Always in my head
The whole time I thought you wanted
So much I could give
But you couldn't give me a promise
Track Name: Bury Your Crutches
Falling faster
This roller coaster comes loose
crushing you

I hate that I had to put this on you
Trust me you're not the only one who wants out too
Be still while we sew this into the fire deep inside you

Watch how it haunted you
This crutch always bleeding through
You rode that ride too often
So black and full of poison
You snapped back but it's grasp on you
Was too tight wouldn't let you through
There's no way out once you've gotten
Hooked on this violent venom

You paint the darkest pictures
Still I hung them on my wall
Your face is so distorted
Still I sought the same reflection

On and on we fall into these holes
We're so wrong
And back and forth we've walked the same old roads
They're so cold

It's my fault I'm a pitiful excuse of what you call soul
I got lost in the midst of the current, I can't find my way back home
It's my fault I'm a pitiful excuse of what you call soul
I got lost in the midst of the current, I can't find my way back home

Run from your crutches
Into the arms of purpose
Watch out for the serpents
Who dig their claws in your heart and curse it

They paint the darkest pictures
Still you hang them on your wall
Their faces so distorted
Still you seek the same reflection

On and on we fall into these holes
We're so wrong
And back and forth we've walked the same old roads
They're so cold

Break out of this curse it's got you down
but you've got hope it won't get worse
Stay out of what defeats you

Stay away from what destroys you

It will consume you
Track Name: Head On
I can tell now
how you felt when
all the pain rushed down from the ceiling
And it caught you off guard got you broken now

Then you fainted from the weight of the world
Fell back on the streets no safety chord
Came and stole all the things made you whole
It took all control

When there's nothing you can do and all this takes over you
Dig in your feet like a warrior
When there's nothing you can do and all this takes over you
Dig in your feet you're a warrior

Claim back your world now
Stand up don't back down
Can't make it work less you believe
Look up and see
Face them head on now
Stand up don't back down
Can't make it work less you believe
Look up and see

Ask yourself, whats this for
Fight for the ones who can no more
Breaking down the walls that hold us back
Cause we're strong

Still lost in this feeling
But getting close to relieving
The shame that towers you when you're down

And all this doubt can't keep you down
when you stand strong and hold your ground
This solid pulse won't let you float down south
And you know this now

When there's nothing you can do and all this takes over you
Dig in your feet like a warrior
When there's nothing you can do and all this takes over you
Dig in your feet you're a warrior

Claim back your world now
Stand up don't back down
Can't make it work less you believe
Look up and see
Face them head on now
Stand up don't back down
Can't make it work less you believe
Look up and see

Look up and see
Do you believe?
Look up and see
Do you believe?

Ask yourself, whats this for?
Fight for the ones who can no more
Breaking down the walls that hold us back
Cause we're strong like that
Asking now, whats this for?
Fighting cause they can no more
Breaking down what holds the whole world back
Cause we're strong like that

We're strong
So strong

We're unning to face it
Not running away from it
We're running to face it
Not running away from it

Claim back your world now
Stand up don't back down
Can't make it work less you believe
Look up and see
Face them head on now
Stand up don't back down
Can't make it work less you believe
Look up and see
Track Name: An Honest Shot in the Dark
You're hoping it's not written in stone
Cause God knows this failure
It's complacent and it's cold
No one Knows

Don't dip your feet in where all hell comes off it's leash
and you're boat Is sinking
And by the time it takes to swim out you're forgotten

Come take this bait
I wrapped it special for you
Don't make me wait
It's not a poison to you

We've got nowhere to be
And you've got the time to see

Wait here with me (It's just like meditating)
Don't you believe (This light so mesmerizing)
Don't fight this high it's only
A guide here to show you slowly
How much love surrounds you

They painted a portrait
So dark inside like torment
But it's fine, I swear you're alright
Now It's time to tell this isn't hell
It's in belief that forms your cell
And now you've got the skills to crawl outside
And make it alright

You're hoping it's not written in stone
Cause God knows this failure
It's complacent and it's cold
No one knows

You thought no one cared about your hopeless heart
Here offering you a brand new start
Soul pressed and weary from this lonely road
Come in close

You're not the only one who's stuck in the past
And full of regrets
We make an army of one and we're here cause we're done
With this sad desperate run
Come on up and

Wait here with me (It's just like meditating)
Don't you believe (This light so mesmerizing)
Don't fight this high it's only
A guide here to show you slowly
How much love surrounds you
