Track Name: Scars
Cannot cry
Knowing my
Tears won't drown the pain inside me

Searching
Seizing
Breathing
Bleeding
Screaming
Cover up the scars

Let the starless night
Keep them out of sight
Let the light of day
Make them fade away

Tried to hide
Safe inside
Mutely begging you to find me

Leave
Deceive me
Hurt me
Judge me
So I
Cover up the scars

Let the starless night
Keep them out of sight
Let the light of day
Make them fade away

I've tried so hard to become what you wanted me to
But instead I've ended up being everything you wish I'm not
Everything you wish I'm not
Everything you wish I'm

Let the starless night
Keep them out of sight
Let the light of day
Make them fade away

Make them fade away
I'll make them fade away
Track Name: Once Upon a Nightmare
I've been waiting for so long
Once again to feel this strong
Now my tears are running dry
Too much time has passed me by

Broken doll you left behind
Whore with vengeance haunts your mind

All the nightmares left in my mind
They tore me down like the storm shall break the trees
Now your pain is your own game
Your shame and I we will hunt you 'till you die

So you're hiding from the knife
That you know will end your life
And the fear you thought unreal
Is the fear that you now feel

I will hear you scream my name
Now you're caught in my sick game

All the nightmares left in my mind
They tore me down like the storm shall break the trees
Now your pain is your own game
Your shame and I we will hunt you 'till you die

After all the things you put me through
Did you really think I'd forgive you?
If you ever hear these words
It'll be from the whispering worms in your grave

I will hear you scream
Scream my name
Now you're caught in my sick game

All the nightmares left in my mind
They tore me down like the storm shall break the trees
Now your pain is your own game
Your shame and I we will hunt you 'till you die

They tore me down like the storm shall break the trees
Your shame and I we will hunt you 'till you die
Track Name: Miss Madness
See Miss Madness in her cell smiling by herself
How did she overdose again?
All I hear are foreign words falling from above
With no purpose at all
I don't fear being alone

I bid you all goodbye
And start to fly high
This time I'll win the fight
Even my cell shines bright tonight

Puts a finger to her pulse, shakes his head and sighs
"Your girl has gone to Neverland"
Starry heavens light my way
A purple meadow path
So soft against my skin
All these wonders make me blind

I bid you all goodbye
And start to fly high
This time I'll win the fight
Even my cell shines bright

Tonight I fly so high I touch the
Skies of blue but don't you cry for me
I see the light for the first time
And I'll never die

I bid you all goodbye
And start to fly high
This time I'll win the fight
Even my cell shines bright tonight

I'll never die
I'll never die
I'll never die
I'll never...
Track Name: Awake the Fire
So tired of your voice
Saying what I can or cannot do
Every day

I do not want to be alone
But I can make it on my own
Here I stand

There's a fire awake in me
Lights up who I want to be
All of my desire has made me see
That I'm willing to fight forever

Now you have made your choice
Tearing us apart with all we had
In every way

You say I'll tumble down and break
But it is not your choice to make
Now you can't

There's a fire awake in me
Lights up who I want to be
All of my desire has made me see
That I'm willing to fight forever

And now that I know
I've found myself
It'll be all right

There's a fire wide awake in me
Lights up who I want to be
All of my desire has made me see
That I'm willing to fight forever

There's a fire wide awake
It lights your way
Don't let it down
Track Name: Breathe In
Mending all the pieces of my mind
For you to break it
Setting all my sanity aside
So you could make it through

Left behind with all your lies
To discover that I'm fine

I relived a thousand lies
One at a time
I, every time I think I'll die
I just breathe in and scream

Standing up for what I knew was right
So I could make it too

Now you're stuck with only time
But I'm sure you'll stay fine

I, I relived a thousand lies
One at a time
I, every time I think I'll die
I just breathe in and...

Scream

I, I relived a thousand lies
One at a time
I, every time I think I'll die
I just breathe in and...

Scream
Scream
Scream
Track Name: Save Me
I hear you calling
But you've forgotten my name
You live inside of me
But nothing is the same

I keep your photos
In every frame
And with your eyes scratched out
I hope you feel my pain

Still I wonder if you see me
In a light where you would

Save me again
Release me from this hell
Why won't you
Save me again
And mend the wings you tore off
When we fell

I know you're watching
Like it's part of a game
And I just play along
Like no one is to blame

You shoot your arrows
With a terrible aim
And I'll just smile the day
One pierces through your brain

Still I wonder if you need me
The way I need you

Save me again
Release me from this hell
Why won't you
Save me again
And mend the wings you tore off

Let me fall from your arms
If you can't heal these scars
Let me dream
In dreams you never leave me

Save me again
From you and from myself

Save me again
Release me from this hell
Why won't you
Save me again
And mend the wings you tore off

When we fell
Release me from this hell
Why won't you
Save me again
And mend the wings you tore off
When we fell
Track Name: Your Light
Letting go of my own life, turning numb and blind
I tried to lead you
Every time I close my eyes, you're there in my mind
I must escape it now

You break me and bring me down

Hide behind your smiles
Drown me in your lies
Find your way in time
I won't be your light

Watch you sink into the dark, grasping for my hand
Refuse to take it
While you're swallowed by your pain, I remain the same
I cannot shed a tear

You break me and bring me down

Hide behind your smiles
Drown me in your lies
Find your way in time
I won't be your light

Please forgive me for your pain
But you're tearing me apart

Hide behind your smiles
Drown me in your lies
Find your way in time
I won't be your light

Time is running out
I won't be around
Let go of my life
It's my last goodbye
Track Name: Alone
I dreamed that love would pierce through my sorrow
I wished for a smile you'd never give

I'd leave my life behind just to see you
I long for an endless winter to pass

Can you hear me?

Raging
Aching
Drenched in my pain I try to
Reach you
Praying
I won't be left alone again

I'm getting sick of waiting
For depths of dark to consume me
My soul has been left all hollow and torn

Can you see me?

Raging
Aching
Drenched in my pain I try to
Reach you
Praying
I won't be left alone again

Why won't you let go of my heart?
When you're not here, not around
Don't let me stay this way

Raging
Aching
Drenched in my pain I try to
Reach you
Praying
I won't be left alone again

Don't think I will ask your forgiveness
Don't say crave your poisonous love
No need for your shallow embraces
I'll make it on my own again
Track Name: Break the Glass
Live an empty life
Make up flawless lies not to fall apart
Free me from myself and this hell I've made

Can I be repaired?

I hide inside a mirror with
Glass so thick I cannot feel
I have to break it down and bleed
To convince myself I'm real

Smile and say you're fine
Die some more inside, fake it every time
It's a game for life and I play it well

Is it worth saving me?

I hide inside a mirror with
Glass so thick I cannot feel
I have to break it down and bleed
To convince myself I feel

Alive inside these shadows where I hide
Despite my cry to breathe again

I hide inside a mirror with
Glass so thick I cannot feel
I have to break it down and bleed
To convince myself I'm real

I hide inside a mirror with
Glass so thick I cannot feel
I have to break it down and bleed
To convince myself I'm real
Track Name: Tied Down
Call me like you own me
Save your breath for sunrise
Raindrops fall like poison
Drown me in a sea of dark

And I can't breathe

See what you've done to me
Tried to break me
See all that I can be
When I'm not tied down

Starlight tries to shine through
Storm clouds eat the light up
Roses seem to blossom
Though their scent won't reach me here

And I can't sleep

See what you've done to me
Tried to break me
See all that I can be
When I'm not tied down

Slowly breathe in
Close your eyes
Calm your sighs
With tears you never dared to cry

See what you've done to me
Tried to break me
See all that I can be
When I'm not tied down

(When I'm not tied down)

When I'm not tied down

(When I'm not tied down)

When I'm not tied down

Cover up the scars

Let the starless night

I've tried so hard to become what you wanted me to
But instead I've ended up being everything you wish I'm not

Let the starless night
Keep them out of sight
Let the light of day
Make them fade away

Make them fade away
I'll make them fade away

I'll never die
I'll never...
