Track Name: Not Afraid
Today is on the run
Gone is yesterday
And tomorrow is yet to come
But still too far away

We're not about to follow you down the abyss
We know there is more to life than this

These are our lives (just one life to live)
Throw away those rules you've set for us
We're resisting, fighting tooth and nail
'cause we will burn before long
But look at us, we're not afraid

We'll take a shot in the dark
'Cause life begins today
And we are leaving our mark
Oh, come what may

We'll never look back at the things that we missed
'Cause we are living it all at full tilt

These are our lives (just one life to live)
Throw away those rules you've set for us
We're resisting, fighting tooth and nail
'cause we will burn before long
But look at us, we're not afraid

We'll break the chains and walk away
To live the dreams of yesterday
Then never regret the moments we'll have
'cause once time is up it will never come back

These are our lives (just one life to live)
Throw away those rules you've set for us
We're resisting, fighting tooth and nail
'cause we will burn before long
But look at us, we're not afraid
Track Name: Fight Back
You are wrong and it's always right
It sees darkness where you see light
It's laying waste to everything
It'll make you question your whole life

This ain't a battle, this is war, I'm fighting for my peace
But I know nothing good ever comes of this

A familiar embrace then takes over my soul
Makes me feel like I'll lose control

But that isn't fair
It just walks in and no one cares
It offers no apologies
I'm sick of the abuse
Today I will let my demons loose
'cause I'm ready to fight back

You don't know what I feel inside
You can judge me but that ain't right
Point the finger and tell your joke
I don't live inside your lies

I'm not in need of sympathy or want your company
But I don't think I deserve that hostility

I see all the stares, and the eyes look so cold
I feel the anguish invading my soul
But that isn't fair
It just walks in and no one cares
It offers no apologies
I'm sick of the abuse
Today I will let my demons loose
'cause I'm ready to fight back

There's a mask we're told to wear
And pretend that we don't care
But the pain we all have to bear still remains
It never goes away

But that isn't fair
It just walks in and no one cares
It offers no apologies
I'm sick of the abuse
Today I will let my demons loose
'cause I'm ready to fight back
I'm falling apart and no one knows
I'm ready to explode
I'm sick of the abuse
Today I will let my demons loose
'Cause I'm ready to fight back
Track Name: Over You
There was a moment frozen in time
So long ago, but it's still haunting me sometimes
I didn't know it would leave a mark so deeply engraved in my heart

I feel the touch of your hands on mine
I see your face every time I close my eyes
And I can hear the echoes of your voice to whisper my name

A thousand days, a thousand nights
A hundred dreams, a million miles
And I still can't get over you
A thousand days (a thousand nights)
I close my eyes (and see your smile)
Oh, I can't get over you

We were all I could think about
I felt the flame, now I'm burning to the ground
And nothing seems to make sense without you near, to hold me in your arms

I feel the touch of your lips on mine
I feel the chills going up and down my spine
And I can hear the echoes of your voice still calling my name

A thousand days, a thousand nights
A hundred dreams, a million miles
And I still can't get over you
A thousand days (a thousand nights)
I close my eyes (and see your smile)
Oh, I can't get over you

The dreams that we shared
Emotions we bared
And all of those moments I've tried to forget
But I can't walk away
I wish you were here with me again

A thousand days, a thousand nights
A hundred dreams, a million miles
And I still can't get over you
A thousand days (a thousand nights)
I close my eyes (and see your smile)
Oh, I can't get over you
Oh, I can't get over you
Track Name: Anchors
I'm seeing life through the looking glass
Sometimes I feel I wasn't made to last
The clouds are rising, the sun is shining but I can't see too far ahead
It's all a leap of faith

Only when you stand alone you realize
That the strength you need is within, not outside

And I'll always swim against the stream
I'm not biting the bait
I'm gonna go on, no matter what they say
All that I am or I'll ever be, goes against what they preach
Their words are a fiction, a barren conviction
They hold no weight

Sometimes you just have to take the dive
And drown your fears so you can stay alive

Down in the depths of your desires you will find
The real meaning of your life
Don't think twice

And I'll always swim against the stream
I'm not biting the bait
I'm gonna go on, no matter what they say
All that I am or I'll ever be, goes against what they preach
Their words are a fiction, a barren conviction
They hold no weight, but somehow they pull me down like anchors

I'm adrift in the midst of a raging darkened sea
I'm taking in water, I'll hit the bottom
While I'm reaching up to breath

And I'll always swim against the stream
I'm not biting the bait
I'm gonna go on, no matter what they say
All that I am or I'll ever be, goes against what they preach
Their words are a fiction, a barren conviction
They hold no weight, but somehow they pull me down like anchors
Track Name: Piece by Piece
She got addicted to the way it feels
To hurt and then heal
She was becoming numb
She craved relief

He only knew how to live on the move
That was his way, his life
His restless soul always took him away

Their hearts were like one
Their souls were divided
That was their destiny
They were far apart and deep within
Love was rusting them piece by piece
Piece by piece

Her heart was heavy
As he made his way through the door
She wasn't ready to admit
But she wants this over with

He drives away as his mind turns to her
And makes him weep

Their hearts were like one
Their souls were divided
That was their destiny
They were far apart and deep within
Love was rusting them piece by piece
Piece by piece

He said "would you love me the same if I were not a dreamer"
And she thought "I don't know what to say, but I love you"

Their hearts were like one
Their souls were divided
That was their destiny
They were far apart and deep within
Love was rusting them piece by piece
Destiny
Rusting within
Piece by piece
