The Unraveling (2001)

"Alive And Well"


now's the time
to rearrange your life
live for something
outside of your own mind
we all dream
the same dream everynight
to burn the world that you call civilized


alive and well
i live to be alive
i live to always strive
for something more
alive and well
i'll never understand
the who, what, why or when
of you tonight...


we face the stares of judgement
and almost everyday
the shaking heads
of disapproval say,
"pray for you to give me something then find out that there was nothing left."

recite the words inside (your heart)
realize that this is nothing
without your voice
im not giving up
and ill blame the worst on you
i know whats wrong
alive and well
i live to be alive
i live to always strive
for something more
alive and well
nothing ventured, nothing gained
and I dont need to explain
myself to you.

"My Life Inside Your Heart"


Fighting back the impulse turn my head and close my eyes
Spending these nights awake and cold and paralyzed
Wonder how we got this far and never realized
The common thread that binds our lives
And I know you hurt
But I can help you if you can...

Take my hand
And we'll live inside the dreams we left behind
Take my hand
As we move from this place to a better life
Take my hand
Wohoooha
If you take my hand

Fighting back the feeling that you always could deny
Anything but everything we know is just a lie
As I cremate this memory and watch the darkened ashes rise
And beneath the smoke
I'll stand and ask you if you can...

Take my hand
And I'll promise not to ever let it go
Take my hand
'Cause this hope is greater than you'll ever know
(Take my hand)
And this is all I'll ever ask of you to show

Fight back the urges
Turn my head and close my eyes
And will I wake tomorrow still alive

I'm still dreaming
I'm still waiting
I'm still sure
(I'm still sure)
You're still living in a life
That isn't yours
(That isn't yours)
And this is part of me
I hope you never see
This is my life inside your heart

Take my hand
And I'll promise not to ever let it go
Take my hand
'Cause this hope is greater than you'll ever know
(Take my hand)
And this is all I'll ever ask of you to show

"Great Awakening"


buried words
under lights
soundtrack to this stagnant life
this meaning lost in translation
message sucked out of his hands again
this could be my great awakening
but how would I know
cuz it's all noise to me
are these words falling on deaf ears?
staring at the empty stares
realize that he no longer cares about the wrong or right
the downward spiral begins tonight
and this could be my great awakening
but how would I know cuz it's all noise to me
are these words falling on deaf ears?
this could be my great awakening
but how would I know cuz it's all noise to me
(nothing I can do will make you hear)

"Six Ways 'Til Sunday"


the years unfold in one moment
the voices that we heard so loud
are now suddenly silenced
inside this crowd

and you're surrounded by the lives
of those who found something to hold
so bringing everybody down
is all you know

you've been hiding so long
you can't find yourself
in this sheltered life you live
when everything you want is at your fingertips
you'll never know what need is

you're claiming to be something different
so wanting to believe
that you're better than the rest
to make up for your self-esteem
you talk to hear your own voice and
you've left me no choice but to choose
I miss the person that you were
but I don't miss you

you've been hiding so long
you can't find yourself
in this sheltered life you live
when everything you want is at your fingertips
you'll never know what need is

you're the new revolution
the angst-filled adolescent
you fit the stereotype well

1, 2, 3, Go!

you're the new revolution
the angst-filled adolescent
you fit the stereotype well
[repeat to fade]

"401kill"


As I watch your life go up in flames,
you'll swear up and down you'd like to change
but when the sun sinks slowly into the sky,
now you're right
where you started again with nothing to say,
without an argument or case
and when it's said and done and done and said,
and now what's another day?

I can feel these changes right before my eyes
I see a dying fire inside your eyes, inside your eyes

When will you stop and realize,
the worth and value of your life?
as you suffocate yourself within this mindless,
9-5 wake up! there's more!
and your life is nobody's but yours
and now its said and done and done and said,
and now what's another day?

I can feel these changes right before my eyes
I see a dying fire inside your eyes

You're running circles around my slow pace
you've reached the finish line only to realize there was no race
I'm sick of being stepped on for the things I choose
I give and take and now I've taken all I could

And now I've taken all I could
And now I've taken all I could
And now I've taken all I could (now I've taken, now I've taken)
And now I've taken all I could (now I've taken, now I've taken)
And now I've taken all I could

"The Art Of Losing"


I'm not fucking blind to the way
that you talk around the truth
not just what you say
but what you do
played this tug of war way too fucking long
like every time
again I've lost
you've won
you took advantage of the trust that I gave
took my forgiveness
rubbed it back in my face
reaching for words but there's nothing to say
I'm left to wonder
will this ever be the same
this rage
burning through my veins
regret consumes my mind
cutting deeply like a razor blade
will I live to see another day
without questioning your motives
with constant doubt
you took advantage of the trust that I gave
took my forgiveness
rubbed it back in my face
reaching for words
but there's nothing to say
I'm left to wonder
will this ever be the same
and as we sit back waiting
for these scars to heal
try to convince ourselves
that this
that this isn't real
will you allow me forget your past
or will you always hang it over my head

"Remains of Summer Memories"


all these days
I'll forever cherish
in the confines of my heart
the faces of ten years ago
like fingerprints on my heart
how can I breathe
when fear chokes my every breath?
how can I balance
six inches from death?
now, the momentum we've created
comes to a screeching halt
this angel comes crashing down
on her hands and knees she crawls
how can I breathe
when fear chokes my every breath?
how many of your lies
will I be fed?
the remains of summer memories
spent so far away
free from the fear or jealousy
that plagues our lives today
now that promises we're broken
enemies were made
we spend our precious time pointing fingers
trying to place the blame
the remains of what's left
of our past
of a future yet to come
of the battles that we've lost
and the fights that we have won

"The Unraveling"


and all these things that we tie together
keep unraveling apart
and the light that used to burn so bright
now is dark
with anger-laced intent we set fire
to the bridges that remain
and they're wading through the current now.

and they drown in the flood of the tears
that have been wept
and i scream to the sky
"no, you are not alone..."

if you think that your words will ever make a difference
think again and carry on
because the weight behind the hand that holds us is strong
but there is hope in the roar of a thousand pleading cries
and all these things that we tie together

the sound of their tongues being bitten
is all I hear
as we fire at the whites of theirs eyes then
dance on ashes of the world

as they drown in the flood of the tears
that have been wept
and their tongues being bitten
is all that I can hear
as I scream to the sky,
"I need you now..."

can you feel this truth now unraveling?
or will you chase the burning sun
into the sea.


"Reception Fades"


[Spoken:]
(It is, in the end, whatever the Hell I want it to be,
And when I'm through with it, it's gonna blow a hole,
This wide, straight through the worlds own idea of itself.
They're throwing bottles at your house.
Come on, lets go break their arms.)

You talk about the way things were,
But I can't hear what you're saying.
A time when life was not this hard,
Blessed by the innocence.

Is the best yet to come?
Or did it pass by long ago?
Are we holding on to a thread,
Of something already dead?

I'm not your reason to stand up straight,
Shoulders back, chest out, and eyes raised.
Stepping back, I hesitate.
I can't let myself be taken.

Is the best yet to come?
Or did it pass by long ago?
Are we holding on to a thread,
Of something already dead?

You can't change your mind, expect me to care.
You can't just snap your fingers and expect me to be there.
[2x]
Can't just change your mind.

The reception fades, the signals breaking up.
And am I moving on or am I giving up?
If you walk away from this with anything,
Live your life today.

"Stained Glass And Marble"


come warm your hands on hellfire and brimstone
empty the pockets of the innocent victim
bound by fear
we misplace trust
in your voice
inside these walls
convincing us we have no choice
gaze upon these stare of naivete
two thousand years replaced
with eighteen inches of our faith
bound by fear
we misplace trust
in your voice
inside these walls
convincing us we have no choice
and this reflection
on where the message lies
stained glass and marble
or somewhere deep inside
(somewhere deep inside)
this message you will only find deep inside
to read these words
you keep looking down
but in the sky
this message is written in the clouds

"Everchanging"


in the face of change
that's when she turned to me and said,
"i'm not sure anymore..."
and there amidst the waves
and the cloudless skies
that blanket the year before
i watch my life wash a shore

have you ever been a part of something
that you thought would never end?
and then of course it did
have you ever felt the weight inside you
pulling away inside your skin?
and then something had to give

[Chorus:]
now the lines are drawn
is this feeling gone?
the best parts of this have come and gone
and now that is all this is
with the reasons clear
we'll spend another year
without direction, full of fear
and now things will be different

there's nothing simple when it comes to you and i
always something in this everchanging life
and it probably always will
now that time is getting harder to come by
the same arguments are always on our mind
we've killed this slowly fading light

[Chorus:]
now the lines are drawn
is this feeling gone?
the best parts of this have come and gone
and now that is all this is
with the reasons clear
we'll spend another year
without direction, full of fear
but now things will be different

and now something has kept me here too long
and you can't leave me if i'm already gone

well now something (hey) has kept me here too long
and you can't leave me (hey) if i'm already gone

now let's say that something (hey) has kept me here too long
and you can't leave me (hey) if i'm already gone

make the same mistakes we're always hanging on
break the promises we're always leaning on
all this time spent waking up
{now i} keep this line open to get this call from you
{as you} speak the words that keep me coming back to you
now this time it's all different

now something has kept me here too long and now i'm gone...

"Sometimes Selling Out Is Giving Up"


trying to make a difference
but where the fuck did you go wrong?
lying to all the names and faces
that have been there all along
how can you ask me to just forget?
all the sick lines
and the words you said
how can you ask me to just forget?
deny the promises you've made
the things you said
that you hold dear
behind your empty words
you hide and wait
until that you fall in the clear
how can you ask me to just forget?
all the sick lines
and the words you said
how can you ask me to just forget?
just don't ask me to just forget

"3 Day Weekend"


aside from the name that holds us together
now I think we'd fall apart
it's the years we'll pretend we've forgotten
that separate our hearts
and I don't remember the way this was
but the pictures prove I knew you once
and where is the source of our mistakes
I'm afraid one day we'll drift so far
we'll wake up not knowing where we are
these words accomplish nothing if I'm gone

"1000 Good Intentions"


it's all the same thing
now that it ever was
except now you've strayed too far
need you to stop digging your hole
and follow the path we light
don't need an invitation to be reconciled
'cause these home fires are burning
stare into your empty eyes and wonder...
"how could something so right turn out so wrong?"
you spent your time making excuse
for the ways of life that you are choosing
how could something so right turn out so wrong?
not sure exactly where I am
the more we organize
we suck out this life that serves as the fuel behind
you wanna take the passion in my veins
and put it down in black & white
you've got your foot directly on the gas
I watch you burn out so fast
now I can see just what you've become
and how could something so right turn out so wrong?
I don't have a backup plan
this is all that I am
and how could something so right turn out so wrong?
not sure exactly where I am
(one) one thousand (good) intentions
(lost) translation (lost) forever
(one) one thousand (good) intentions
(lost) translation (lost) forever
lost
how could something so right turn out so wrong?
I don't have a backup plan
this is all that I am
and how could something so right turn out so wrong?
not sure exactly
where I am
where I am

"Weight Of Time"


speak with hesitation
talk with reservation
blood on your hands dried long since
but guilt still glowing in your eyes

you hide behind
(and now this blood has long since dried)
your perfect crime
(guilt still glowing in your eyes)
never ask why you lie

now I've watched you

stack the mistakes you've made on top
of the lies to hide them
your excuses just don't add up
empty handed we all wonder why

you hide behind
(and now this blood has long since dried)
your perfect crime
(guilt still glowing in your eyes)
never ask why you lie

now I know that
your words
your actions
intentions all were lies
your heart grows heavier with time
(and now this blood has long since dried!)
have I said enough
have I said too much
is it your responsibility to decide
you're heart grows heavier with time
(I will decide!)
and I fell victim to the changing tide
and this blood has long since dried
this blood has long since dried


"Faint Resemblance"


Wait,
I'm not listening to you now
I wasn't listening to you then
I know that nothing will be the same again
there's only so much I can handle
only so much I can take
before my knees start to buckle
and my arms start to shake

Have we been here before?
will we be here again?
I don't know how much of me you expect

Standing here right now
And I beg for you to let go
I dread the day you finally do
And I fight for your attention
too little too late or too much too soon
and how will this plague the time
we share from here on out
and how long will this taint
all these words spilling from my mouth

Have we been here before?
will we be here again?
I don't know how much more of me you expect

Standing here right now
Standing here right now
I'm standing!

And have we been here before?
will we be here again?
I don't know how much more of me you expect

Gethsemane lyrics

It was the perfect night
Then you had to go and ruin it with a kiss, now
I'm trapped inside here
The innocence we held once
So carelessly
Has been suffocated in this breathless moment
Believe in me and I will believe in you
You're asking of me everything
So I'll give it all to you
With arms raised to the stars begging them to listen
With legs littered with scars cut from these olive branches
Now, point of return now crossed
And our hands left shaking
Tonight we give in to tempation
Believe in me and I will believe in you
You're asking of me everything
So I'll give it all to you
Someone stop my mind from screaming
It's so loud I can't hear myself think
Life, Death, Religion, Survival
It makes no sense
Don't try to tell me that I'm a coincidence
Believe in me and I will believe in you
You're asking of me everything
So I'll give it all to you
If I never have you, then I can never lose you
Now, everything here is a lie
Where is the truth?
Where is the fucking truth?
