Eminence 03:43
Eminence, when you think that you're ahead of it And you needed more than you could get There's a breakdown of the sentiment And you feel you've had enough Get out of the way, get out of your own way Get out of the way, get out of the way, get out of your own way Reverence, to the ones who make your life a mess As you give up your inheritance There's a shakedown on the precipice Point the finger, pass the buck Get out of the way, get out of your own way Get out of the way, get out of the way, get out of your own way
2.
Well I’ve been playing by the rules, and I just can’t get out of bed I’ve been saying more than you, but I don’t have any more left Yeah I'm a sucker and a fool and I'm in way over my head I’m on a different point of view, but I’m just so out of my depth Well I can play it kinda cool but I'm just like anyone else And I'm ok to play the fool If you don't think anything less I’ve been deflated through and through but I can't have any regrets Well I've been playing by the rules, but I don’t know who’s keeping check
3.
Is it alright to be myself again Can I finally be myself again I don’t need a reason to find I'm beginning to feel myself again I’m leaving the memory behind So I can finally be myself again, auf wiedersehen, I’ll see you there some better day Cards on the table vanity off to the side Always been able to get myself back to a stride Time’s an eraser and reverie speaks for itself Sign your own waiver and you’ll never be somebody else You’ll never be somebody else Is it alright to be myself again Can I finally be myself again I don’t need a reason to find I'm beginning to feel myself again I’m leaving the memory behind So I can finally be myself again, auf wiedersehen, I’ll see you there some better day Almost a stranger and even to those that I know I'm the remainder of memories thrown to the cold Life is too painful when honesty comes at a price And lies aren’t fatal unless it's the four letter kind Unless it's the four letter kind

Someone jumped the gun Someone knew it all along Someone jumped the gun Someone really fucked it up Yeah, what a shame, gotta pay the petty tax Yeah, just the same, you know you've really gotta laugh Someone jumped the gun Some things better left undone Someone jumped the gun Someone ruined all the fun Yeah, who's to say, you never really could get back Yeah, gotta break, I don't know, maybe I'll be back Someone jumped the gun
5.
Traces 03:07
Really no time, living on borrowed time Not until they see what you've been through Never looked back, never went back Such a waste of life, but who allowed you, unwound you, threw you to the ground That now you'd choose to put them down (They’ll know who you are) Never got time, never was given time (Why’d you go so far) This is what becomes of those who break (They’ll know who you are) Never know why, never know peace of mind (Why’d you go so far) Traces of the ones you left around you, rounds used, lives you’ve run aground The classroom, those who should be out of bounds Confused, deep wounds, can they heal somehow Our minds are broken and beat down (They’ll know who you are) Nothing set right, everyone choose a side (Why’d you go so far) The advertising's free, and since they found you, crowned you, said your name aloud Profound fools will want the same thing now (Lives you’ve run aground) (Should be out of bounds) (Can they heal somehow) (Lives you’ve run aground)

Saturnine 03:40
How many days has it been now, hard to tell The sand it stings and beats my brow, beats me down The cool night wind betrays a sound, just a sound Oh stars above don't leave me now, how about now I hear you, I hear the sound I see you, I see the ground I'm falling, I won't go down I'm leaving The fire's cold The days are slow The final crumb The setting sun My visions blur the here and now, to be found My final days, my first few sounds, here and now My father, my fallow ground The reasons, my mother found I'm sorry, but not right now I'm leaving An only son The fire's gone What's done is done The setting sun
7.
It's time to be extra cautious A sigh of relief, but don't get thoughtless I'm getting old and you'll be older too It’s time to see what you’ve created, Resigned to be, nauseated Sit back for the show, they wanted the real you It used to be less complicated When you’re talking to me, is it real or traded And now I suppose you’ll be going too Keep it together Gotta keep it together
8.
Forgetter 02:53
The sun is up but the sky is gray The birds are flying away They'll pick you up, they'll pull you away They'll give you more than they take When it's too tough The time is up Forgetter Forgetter Forget, it’ll make you feel better The same old stuff on the same old day The light that keeps you awake And there's no doubt that your troubles will stay If you don't turn them away They'll turn you on They'll turn you down Forgetter Forgetter Forget, it’ll make you feel better It's all so small From far enough The siren's call Forgetter Forgetter Forget, it’ll make you feel better How would I find myself
9.
Inside you there's a sound that you could make The right tune can clear a rainy day It finds you like a dog that lost its way Reminds you of the one that got away It's time to look at what we celebrate The trite fools who would throw it all away The ones who give some meaning to their pain Remind you everything will be ok Thinking about the rain I’ve been thinking about the rain The time you give to something you can't fake Defines you and the feelings you relate It grounds you to a world that you create Without you, everything's a bit more gray I’ve been thinking about the rain I’ve been thinking about the rain Without you there's a price that we all pay The sound you You make
10.
In the morning air At the window, yeah In the morning At the window These dreams, like a scene from your old life Through a cold and distant light There's a place, but there's no time These dreams, take apart your shallow mind In a way you can't define Like a bullet from the sky I know, I know, I know you can never get it back So don't be late and take another crack I won't complain as long as I can dream These dreams, when you live a double life And the stakes are just too high Grenadine and shepherd's pie These dreams, they can really change your life Are you ready for the dive Through the shallows and the cries Of those who chose to put it on their back The highs, the lows that make so many crack And so it goes, as long as I can dream As long as I can dream
