1. This Side of Nowhere

If you should be a mother, then selfishness aside

If you should plant a garden, then let it grow and thrive

Take the time to offer a happily ever after

Stick your neck out further, you could've been a martyr

If you should have each other, then night is painted blue

If you should plan on absence, then curse the wretched youth

Take the time to offer a happily ever after

Stick your neck out further, you could've been a martyr

2. Alive

Oh, at it again

my favorite trend

The one where the song and dancing begin

I need you to know

I need it to show

You'll figure it out and I won't talk about it

Oh, ready or not

is that all you've got

It's all in good fun, it's better than none

You've hollowed me out

you've polished me clean

You're going to find out and I won't talk about it

Oh, face to the floor

been here before

But no lack of warmth

or nothing to show

It's where I belong

taken dangerously low

An obvious mistake, but I won't talk about it

Dreamt about it, went about it, never quite made sense about it

You're somebody, I'm somebody, you're so clean but I'm still muddy

Thought about it, laughed about it, wrote a song and sang about it

Couldn't understand except it makes me feel alive!

Oh, I've got to confess

I'm caught up again,

I’m drama at worst, addicted at best

I can't answer why

it’s how I get by

Don't ask me again ‘cause I won't talk about it

Oh, used up again

but you're my best friend

And if I can suspect

we'd call it success

If we're meant for more

and I do want more

I'll figure it out and I won't talk about it

Oh, face to the floor

been here before

But no lack of warmth

or nothing to show

Its where I belong

taken dangerously low

An obvious mistake but I won't talk about it

Dreamt about it, went about it, never quite made sense about it

You're somebody, I'm somebody, you're so clean but I'm still muddy

Thought about it, laughed about it, wrote a song and sang about it

Couldn't understand except it makes me feel alive!

3. After You

What's your fascination with outer space?

Isn't it so empty, and out of place?

You know you did a really good job burning down those bridges that filled the generation gap

You know you had a really good thing here and now, you couldn't learn how to live and how to live without

Believe

Every night, oh every night, Dream in black, oh dream in white

Every night I get a little closer, closer to redemption

Every night, every night

It’s hard to say you couldn't stay

when life's a drag and people change

But truth be told I'm not as bold to walk with faith and leap alone

No matter what you thought of me, I always try to make believe that

I am you and you are me and When I taste it's bittersweet

Believe

Every night, oh every night, Dream in black, oh dream in white

Every night I get a little closer, closer to redemption

Every night, every night

I, I'll make your eyes wide open

I, I've given up with wondering

I, I'm counting words unspoken

I, I'll make your eyes wide open

4. Fractured

Gone, time has gone

And I'm still holding on to who I am

and who I was, and all because

I want it, I had it, and every little part of me,

neglected opportunities

Ready I don’t want it I don't want it I don't want to know 

I don't want it I don't want it I don't want to go

I don't want it I don't want to know

Real, it all gets surreal

and I'll get to claim how it's never kind

knowing how I'll pay the price

With dreams, they can never be

the time has passed and has its hold on me

addicted personality

Ready I don't want it I don't want it I don't want to know,

I don't want it I don't want it I don't want to go

I don't want it I don't want to know

5. All There Is

You've got conviction, but I'm the coming messiah

You've been so centered, but I'm at faraway heights

You're optimistic but I'm so simple

I made a point to clear my mantle tonight

But I can't understand, my time had come so fast

But I held my tongue, as you stole my chance

We were passersby, written to a script

And I held my tongue, as you stole my chance 

We were passengers on a sinking ship, when we were meant for more

And I don't care to believe, this is all there is

I had a fever and a gift for the masses

I wasn't careful with my selfish desire

You were perfection and I'm distasteful

You made a point to never fail to impress

But I can't understand, my time had come so fast

But I held my tongue, as you stole my chance

We were passersby, written to a script

And I held my tongue, as you stole my chance 

We were passengers on a sinking ship, when we were meant for more

And I don't care to believe, this is all there is

Now, all there is, all there is!

But I held my tongue, as you stole my chance

We were passersby, written to a script

And I held my tongue, as you stole my chance 

We were passengers on a sinking ship, when we were meant for more

And I don't care to believe, this is all there is

6. Through the Darkness

Hello there, it’s me again

Been a while now, my old friend

Truth be told, it’s hard to say

If I’ll see the light of day again

‘Cause there you go through the darkness

Letting go of what you made

I dunno why I wondered

If tomorrow couldn’t be saved

What’s the point I’m missing here?

You made the choice to disappear

Did you ever mean to be

Everything you promised me?

I know that life isn’t like a fairy tale

Life isn’t like a dream

Sometimes words are meaningless

in the grand scheme of things

But here I thought the stars

were lining up for you and me

I thought your dreams could be

a part of my reality

 But there you go, through the darkness

Letting go of what you made

I dunno why I wondered

If tomorrow couldn’t be saved

(Here we go again, through the darkness, letting go of what I've been

I showed passion and constraint but we know they're both to blame for everything)

7. Victorious

Is this really what it feels like, living out a dream

Picking up the pieces just to have them slip between?

Making sense is faking hope when no one’s left to please

Well was it everything I hoped for, was it my disease?

And I get this feeling, that my life has gone to shame

I can’t deny the blame

And I get defeated, what was lost will not be chased

But I can’t forget the taste

Is this really what it looks like, Breaking points of view

Begging for a change of pace, I swear I never knew

I’m reaching out to everything but all my limbs are numb

I’ll be floating in the emptiness, I hate who I’ve become

 And I get this feeling, that my life has gone to shame

I can’t deny the blame

And I get defeated, what was lost will not chased

But I can’t forget the taste

9. Faith

Happiness speaks to me, I'm such a mess, the irony

I never should have let you down, I never should have had it all

I never should have let this go my way

Loneliness stares at me, it lies and waits so patiently

I never should have let this in, I never should have felt at all

I never should have dreamt so big, they're my mistakes

Craziness sleeps with me, it's so intense, it blankets me

I never should have let it slip, I never should have stayed and dwelled

I never should have thoughts again, hold me

Let me go, let it wash through me

Let me go, let it pass through me

Let me go, let it wash through me

I never should have let this in, I never should have felt at all

I never should have dreamt so big

You had too much faith, too much faith in me

You had too much faith

10. Collide

Let's spend time at no matter the cost

This ride is like a merry-go-round 

1 2 3 and it's just you and me

Even if it's just for tonight

Watch your step and you'll never forget

The color of your shoes in the dark

Stand in line for the rest of our lives

As long as it's something to do

Wake up to the silence

This morning's a strain

So much for devotion

We're done like the rest

Wasn't looking but the searching wasn't quite enough

8. The Absence of Light

Why now you're impossible

this whole time and now you show

And I can't understand if it's

just for us, or just because

Don't push this further now

don't fight and let it out

I can't be the one you need

If you're around don't make a sound

Your life is over now

who you knew is out of luck

And I can't understand why you'd

want it back, after the fact

This is your future now

where I've been I can't go back

You can't still believe that I could

need you now, I need you how?

11. The Other Side

Hanging on, all my secrets are gone

Lost to tongues, endless drifting in mouths

It’s getting old, no one mentions my name

I’m just a thought, someone they’ll think they know

Spend a night on the other side

Maybe, I could be a little less

Crazy, I could be a little less

Empty, make up for my misspoken truths

Maybe, I can be a little less

Hasty, I’m set to be a Johnny come

Lately, make up for my troublesome youth

Carrying on, nothing changes if I stay

A cause for alarm, the shame is cost enough for me

It’s getting cold, all my suns dim and fade

I’m just a thought, slowly drifting away

Spend a night on the other side

Maybe, I could be a little less

Crazy, I could be a little less

Empty, make up for my misspoken truths

Maybe, I can be a little less

Hasty, I’m set to be a Johnny come

Lately, make up for my troublesome youth

Maybe, I could be a little less

Crazy, I could be a little less

Empty, make up for my misspoken truths

Maybe, I can be a little less

Hasty, I’m set to be a Johnny come

Lately, make up for my troublesome youth
