Track Name: Cyanide and Pyrite
I don't know what you're yelling for...
That tired and angry shout.
Treating me like a dog with strings...
So, this is what love is about?
Ohhhhh...

This is the day that we close the door.
Break some hearts with the strum of a chord.
Here's to the empty and the left behind;
For the love that treats me like..
Cyanide.
This is the song for the broken-hearted.
To all the ones with their faith departed.
Shut your mouth cause I'm just getting started,
Oh, your love, it treats me like...
Cyanide.

Not even you know what you're...
You're yelling for.
But frankly, I don't care.
Cause if this is love...
Well, this is fucked.
Darling, try not to stare.

This is the day that we close the door.
Break some hearts with the strum of a chord.
Here's to the empty and the left behind;
For the love that treats me like..
Cyanide.
This is the song for the broken-hearted.
To all the ones with their faith departed.
Shut your mouth cause I'm just getting started,
Oh, your love, it treats me like...
Cyanide.
Woah...

Cause I've been running in circles for me and for you just for some peace of mind...
And I'm lost in this maze of confusion and you just left my ass behind.
It was you that told me everything and how I should just be...
But since when does loving you...
WASH OUT ALL OF ME?!
The way your poison works it's like a verbal strangle-hold...
A vicious trap just hatched for me,
A room made of fool's gold.
So leave the pieces of my heart just scattered on the shore...
I'll pick them up myself cause I can't take you anymore...

Well, I don't know what you're yelling for,
But I can probably guess...
Oh, It;s me. It's me that's who you're...
You're yelling for...
Me?
Well, I digress..
Track Name: Never Be the Same
Ohhhhhh... it comes in waves.
But will never be the same.
No, it will never be the same...

The light reflecting off your face.
The warmth in your imbrace.
Oh It will never be the same.
I tried my best to understand
But I am just one man...
And I don't give a damn.

No, You don't have to run, no you don't have to hide
All those fears creeping in and the thoughts that subside,
Did you think I'd sit by
While you fucked my mind... ?
But ohhhh... What pleasure.
Mixed with guilt and with pain
Like that cold steady Rain
Now, just how could you claim,
To be totally sane?
All the faking, you break me and make me learn one last thing...
That I will never be the same.

Now if I only were a king
I could only do one thing.
I'd take control.
Just like you who took control...
Of this battered and broken soul...
Oh, but you should know!

[chorus]

Now, you and I we should be happy...
After all, we'll get some peace
But the truth, you'll find;
Is that you and I,
You and I
We will never be the same.

Ohhhh it comes in waves
When I see your face.
I just start to lose it.
But, the choice was mine...
Me, I'll be just fine.
So don't you lose it...

[chorus]

Ohhhhh... It comes in waves...
But it will never be the same...
No, it will never be the same
Track Name: Oh-Eight
When all your life is like a dream...
Its just not what it seems.
You find your self reliving
The whole of history.
Of who you are and who you'll be...
You mean so much to me.
Yet waking up is what it seems;
It's just reality.

You're on your own...
You're on your way home.
You think it's over,
The quiet thrill of an awkward sober...

When everything and everyone;
Is watching what you become...
You're trying just to be someone
When they all know what you have done...
Just take a moment and you'll see...
A whole new side of me.
A me that can just let it be...
A new reality.

But you've been shown...
Been shown the way home.
You think it's over,
The quiet thrill of an awkward sober.

I will be ok;
That's what I'll say.
When my skies turn grey;
I'll stay the same.
For the sake of;
All my grace...
I'll try to keep my place;
And I'll escape.

When all that you can ever draw
Is a portrayed monologue...
Of how you've came across so long
Yet all you've done is wrong...
Just take a moment to reflect;
Some time to introspect...
Just take a moment and you'll see...
Your new reality.

You're taking on...
The will to stand strong.
Don't think it's over;
The silent scream of an awkward sober...

I will be ok;
That's what I'll say.
When my skies turn grey;
I'll stay the same.
For the sake of;
All my grace...
I'll try to keep my place;
And I'll escape.

No the time is not here...
But it's soon drawing near...
You'll see what I mean have some hope, have no fear.
Don't come crashing down;
At the slightest of sound...
Just keep above water
And try not to drown.
No the time is not here...
But it's soon drawing near...
You'll see what I mean have some hope, have no fear.
Don't come crashing down;
At the slightest of sound...
Just keep above water
And try not to drown.
Just keep above water and try not to drown!

But, wait...
But, wait...
Oh, wait, Oh, wait, Oh, wait, Oh, wait,
Oh, wait, Oh, wait, Oh, wait, Oh, wait,
Oh, wait, Oh, wait, Oh, wait, Oh, wait,
Oh, wait, Oh, wait, Oh, wait, Oh, wait...
Track Name: Rain
All my sorrows...
Laid deep in my bones.
The cold, alone.
Without a home.
When tomorrow
Drowns out today.
That ain't the way.
It ain't my way.

But the rain
It knows the truth
Knows what to do.
It just falls straight though... The...Grey...
But the light...
Cannot shine through.
No longer blue...
Sky's over you...

And I can't take much more
All these open wounds have made me sore...
I just want to be set free...
But the darkness creeps inside of me...

Oh I wish...
I was the sea.
The calm and peace...
To be let be... But this storm is
Raging...
There is no sun.
No light, no fun.
Just dark just one.

Just like water
I want to flow
Want to let go.
I need to know this so I can
Maybe...
Start flowing too.
But it's no use...
It's just no use...

[chorus]

Now the rain
It knows the truth
Knows what to do.
It just falls straight though... The...Grey...
But the light...
Cannot shine through.
No longer blue...
Sky's over you...

But the light... Oh the light don't shine...
No the light... No light don't shine...
Track Name: The One Thing I Forgot to Remember
Lets try to forget it and do the best we can...
I can see that you're trying your best to understand...
I'm not the one to lead you all astray.
Ill be the first to say;
Its ok.

Lets try to forget it, and take thus day by day.
This world; so quiet, the same and steady sway...
I'll do my best to see you aren't alone...
Just know I feel the same;
On my own.

Crawling up the walls...
It's my time to call;
Off this tired, old crusade.
Oh, we'd trade it all away...
For the promise of a brand new kind of way.

Lets try to forget it, this place we call our home.
Fall out from within it, this creature has been shown.
To wear your face your smile... And make it his.
To occupy your mind... And take it in.

Lets try to forget it, and shut out all the noise...
Well keep quiet and pretend, like little girls and boys.
But some where, oh you know this isn't right
Yet each and every night...
You're tucked in tight...

Please turn out the lights!
Cause they're just too damn bright...
Oh, I'll see you in the morning,
With a smile that's so adorning...
Though, I'm much to sad to die happy anyway.

So can you hear sound...
Of our lives crashing down?
Can we see what I mean?
Oh, What were meant to be?
Can't you see? Can't you see, can't you see...?

That here we go again.
And here's my answer, my friend
You get what you get,
Don't you forget...
Just try... An try...
To forget.
Oh just try... And try
To forget.
Well just try, and try
To forget.
