Track Name: Smoke Screen
LYRICS:

It's just another day, another dose, forget about it.

I was in over my head and I continue to forget that I
Consciously hate the view I'm faced with
And it's standing in plain sight.

Hide behind your smoke screen every day.
The cold night's got me wishing it just wasn't me.
I fight my fears alone and I told you I wasn't home.
Your smoke screen is giving me false hope
And you're giving me the third degree.
I fight fire with time.
It's just another day, another dose, forget about it.

And I guess some day, one day, I'll stop reminding you
Of the places we have grown to hate.
It's hard to take the wheel.
But if you drive slow and in line, we'll get there in good time.
I'll fight fire with time. I'll fight for
The results of my own creation.
I've seen through the smoke. The fire. The blame. The dread.

It's just another day, another dose, forget about it.

Hide behind your smoke screen every day.
The cold night's got me wishing it just wasn't me.
I fight my fears alone and I told you I wasn't home.
Your smoke screen is giving me false hope
And you're giving me the third degree.
I fight fire with time.
It's just another day, another dose, forget about it.

You're screaming you don't need nobody else.
Sometimes you need a break to fix yourself.
In a burned out, chaotic twist of the truth
I find myself getting lost in you.

It's just another day, another dose, forget about it.
If there's a better way then try and keep me away.
I fight fire with time,
But it's just another day, another dose, forget about it.

Hide behind your smoke screen every day.
The cold night's got me wishing it just wasn't me.
I fight my fears alone and I told you I wasn't home.
Your smoke screen is giving me false hope
And you're giving me the third degree.
I fight fire with time,
But it's just another day, another dose, forget about it.
Track Name: Composure
LYRICS:

No use in finding the balance just to fall in love.
Well they know I'm never gunna give this up.
I think I'm finding composure.
I guess I'll owe you for the chance,
'Coz I've been found and I am never looking back.

And I haven't felt this way for quite some time.

And I don't know who you are,
But there's a fire in your heart.
And I don't know who you are,
But there's a fire in your heart.

I've been living in the shadows of a better life.
The fire in your heart is giving me the strength to try,
The beautiful part of getting lost alone,
Is that you'll know when you're ready to go home.
And it's days like these you'll find out

Who you are, 'coz there's a fire in your heart.
I don't know who you are,
But there's a fire in your heart.

I think I've found a place to start.
What good is a fire without a spark?
You always seem to light the dark,
Wherever that you are.
It's time to forget what they said.
I've found a place to rest my head.
No matter how much it hurts,
We've gotta sit and watch it burn.

Everybody knows that you've got that fire.
Everybody knows that you've got that fire.
Everybody knows that you've got that fire.
Everybody knows that

It's all I wanna know but I

Don't know who you are,
(Everybody knows)
But there's a fire in your heart.
I don't know who you are,
(Everybody knows)
But there's a fire in your heart.
Won't you tell me who you are,
(Everybody knows that you've got that fire)
'Coz there's a fire in your heart
I don't know who you are,
(Everybody knows)
That there's a fire in your heart.
Track Name: Recovery
LYRICS

I sculpt my life into the only shape that fits with you, controlled by surroundings when you’re on your own.

The bigger picture shows you taking your own way, but in reality you’re not doing ok.
I’d like to help you, but I think it’s time you learned to trust your heart and use your head.

Don’t tell me you’re ok, don’t tell me you’re alright when you’re not,
I’m not the only one who’ll miss you when you’re gone. (Miss you when you're gone)
Don’t tell me you’re ok, trust me I’ve been there but now I’m free

Taking time is fine, but wasting mine aint right, you can recover from this
But I hate to lead you on, I’m scared it might go wrong. (A fresh start’s on my mind)
Don’t tell me you’re ok, don’t tell me you’re alright when you’re not,
I’m not the only one who’ll miss you when you’re gone.
Don’t tell me you’re ok, trust me I’ve been there but now I’m free and the last thing that I want is for this to end.

What does it take to make you feel alive? Adrenalin pumping through your veins one final time. Adrenalin pumping through your veins one final time.

You tell me you’re all for feeling, all for feeling good.
You tell me that you’re free falling and you’d join me if you could.

Don’t tell me you’re ok, don’t tell me you’re alright when you’re not,
I’m not the only one who’ll miss you when you’re gone. (Miss you when you're gone)
Don’t tell me you’re ok, trust me I’ve been there but now I’m free and the last thing that I want is for this to end.

I sculpt my life into the only shape that fits with you, controlled by surroundings when you’re on your own.
Track Name: Save A Life
LYRICS

25 to life is what I’m heading for but I can see no signs
of an exit or an escape, these streets are taking me away.

I never wanted to run (they told me not to)
but now I know what I’ve done (I didn’t know you)
This is what I have to live with (you are what they have to live without.)

And there’s an angel looking down from up above
And it carries all the names that we once loved
I’m hearing the sirens call for us
Surrender your Knife, It’s time to save a life

I don’t even want to understand
the trauma that is taking over me
Is this the life that I want to lead?
Surrounded by your bad advice and all these things you leave behind
they’ll light the way but these streets all look the same.

Can’t you understand that you’re a coward not a man -so hand it over, give it up and save yourself.

And there’s an angel looking down from up above
And it carries all the names that we once loved
I’m hearing the sirens call for us
Surrender your Knife, It’s time to save a life

Can’t you understand that you’re a coward not a man - so hand it over, give it up and save yourself.
Track Name: Our Kingdom
Lyrics:

This is a battle and you are the ground
I’ll choose my weapon if you wear the crown.

cos we had to find out for ourselves just how far it’s going to go,
I don’t think it’s going to stop.
I’d hate to see you find yourself alone.

If I could build a house, could you make it a home for us?
cos you’ve got tears on your heart of gold, but I won’t let it rust
If you wanted the world, then I’ll give you the universe
we’ll have a castle when we’re grey and old
and in our kingdom, we’ll fall in love

And I wanna know how it feels to be trapped inside your chamber
I’ll call it home, cos that’s where you’ll be
when the fire isn’t burning and you feel the tables turn
you won’t be alone, cos that’s where I’ll be

cos we had to find out for ourselves just how far it’s going to go,
I don’t think it’s going to stop.
I’d hate to see you find yourself alone.


If I could build a house, could you make it a home for us?
cos you’ve got tears on your heart of gold, but I won’t let it rust
If you wanted the world, then I’ll give you the universe
we’ll have a castle when we’re grey and old and in our kingdom, we’ll fall in love

And after all the cavalry is dead and gone,
we’re left alone to count the treasures that we stole
and then we’ll finally be home

Now I have built a house and you have made it home for us
I’ve dried the tears on your heart of gold, cos I won’t let it rust
You wanted the world, so I gave you the universe
we have a castle we can call our own, in our kingdom we fell in love.
