Track Name: Emperor (Live)
He says, "Boy, let me tell you the way..."
"an early taste of what some can't cure…"
see through the glare, an aura stripped bare
an emperor's stare in poor man's despair

but you don't want to turn your fate around do you?
(you just blame everything on those empty bottles)
and respond to those to change the path you're on
(using words to distract from whats really wrong)
but if we're all just hypocrites then damn me too
when will you be the bigger man?

I don't want to keep you waiting
I know it can be frustrating having to convince everyone you're right

but you don't want to turn your fate around do you?
(you just blame everything on those empty bottles)
and respond to those to change the path you're on
(using words to distract from whats really wrong)
but if we're all just hypocrites then damn me too
when will you be the bigger man?
Track Name: We're Strangers Now (Live)
Your shadow's tall, we're left behind
since we were small, I know she tried
we're everything you wanted, built without your hand
led without your guide swimming in the wake

so let's call this what it is
let's call this what it is
you don't know me, I don't know you

products of a dissonance in time and space,
you're so alone with traits she couldn't break
crippled with your anger, failing to escape

so let's call this what it is
let's call this what it is
you don't know me, I don't know you
Track Name: Up Late (Live)
It starts with one loss.
It starts in a home.
And you cannot believe what he said, what he did
can we still get out?

Truth can only wait so long.
Two can only fake so long.

I have seen the future and it feels like every face you make
where frigid tones convey the pulse of every little word mistaken.
Every word, scrutinized
I can't stand to wait that long,
ain't it sad you never wavered to show me who you really are?

wide awake waiting for the time to slow
what this is, isn't really like those dreams you never get
wide awake waiting for the time to slow
what exists isn't really like those dreams you never get your head around

coming home at 4am to a bed turned over like someone had invaded
catch him with a foreign love,
reaching for the door you slam
sweating with his beat red hands,
abusing faith to make amends
I'm sorry its not as black and white

wide awake waiting for the time to slow
what this is, isn't really like those dreams you never get
wide awake waiting for the time to slow
what exists isn't really like those dreams you never get your head around
Track Name: Everything You Know (Live)
Way downstairs underneath the floorboards
they've buried our children there
will I ever once breathe them in?

Shut me out,
would they even care if I ever went home again?
I can never go home again
I gave up the same as they
and I have no say in where they're taking them
(you can't slow down the machine)
and my stomach keeps turning...

Everything you think you know,
everything that you've been told,
a clever twist of words and small patterns in the dirt.

Everything you think you know,
everything that you've been told,
a clever twist of words and small patterns in the dirt.
Track Name: The Bridge (Live)
Could this be just the way they are? the way we are?
without a rhyme, without a reason the subtle face of a deeper demon
I don't like the sound of this...
you'll feel the wind, you'll be relieved but we may never let it go…

I've searched for that something.
I've waited for nothing.

some people don't wanna be saved and there's nothing you can change.
some people don't wanna be saved and there's nothing you can do

could this be just the way they are? the way we are?
a crooked view, a lesser few means giving up

some people don't wanna be saved and there's nothing you can change
(there's no turning back now)
some people don't wanna be saved and there's nothing you can do

where'd it all go down? where'd it all go wrong?
I'm free…
free….

this isn't how I imagined life to be
this is for our sons and daughters who were lost on the way
Track Name: Never Loved (Live)
Don't ever say I never loved you, honey
I always tried to make the best of what we had
and if the past was causing you to lose sleep,
make like those who abandoned you before.

you said you would be coming home
and fell apart and turned to me.
you said you would be coming home and fell apart.

I can't be the reason you don't progress anymore,
we can't grow together if you never grow alone.
I can't be your leg to stand on if you can't manage,
it's not in me, I can hardly handle myself.

It's hard enough to carry such a weight
when I'm with you
but it gets easier when you chip away my heart
hold my tongue till then, when I go free
I'm taking all my lonely feelings home with me

I can't be the reason you don't progress anymore,
we can't grow together if you never grow alone.
I can't be your leg to stand on if you can't manage,
it's not in me, I can hardly handle myself.

When you don't see me are you lonely?
I get lonely too…
Track Name: Time. (Live)
Forgot who I was, with her go my wants...

I can't help it, I need something more in life.
You can't help it because you didn't see it
looming all this time.

Future void of me last night in my dreams...

I can't help it, I need something more in life.
You can't help it because you don't see it
I need time.

This is what I need to seize my world, my wants...
Mark my words, in time...
