Track Name: Come at me, Bro!
Seems like every day another saint dies in this place
and with every death, another monster, another monster is born.
I'VE FOUND MORE DEMONS ON THE FACE OF THIS EARTH
THAN THERE COULD EVER FILL ALL THE DEPTHS OF HELL

I'd like to think that everyone has a purpose
So why do I feel like so much of this, of this is worthless?
I never thought I'd let it show.
I pretend that I still have hope.
I don't want to let the darkness win
SO DON'T GIVE ME A REASON

Before you speak,
take a look around.
Of everyone in this crowd, the only one holding me back IS ME!
I'M NOT TRYING TO BEAT ON MY CHEST
OR ACT LIKE I'M BETTER THAN THE REST
But when it rains oh God it pours,
Stay out of my way, AND I'LL STAY OUT OF YOURS.

I'd like to think that everyone has a purpose
So why do I feel like so much of this, of this is worthless?
I never thought I'd let it show.
I pretend that I still have hope.
I don't want to let the darkness win
SO DON'T GIVE ME A REASON

When you have my back against the wall,
Just remember the bigger they are... hahahaha... THE HARDER THEY FALL

MY PATIENCE THIN LIKE THE ICE YOU'RE ON
PLEASE GIVE ME THE STRENGTH TO JUST MOVE ON.

I'd like to think that everyone has a purpose
So why do I feel like so much of this, of this is worthless
I never thought I'd let it show.
I'll pretend that I still have hope.
I don't want to let the darkness win
SO DON'T GIVE ME A REASON! Don't give me a reason. JUST GIVE ME A REASON!
Track Name: On the Edge of Tomorrow
The mirror is your portrait.
Paint whatever you'd like to be.
But don't forget to paint deeper
Than what can be seen.

This is your life.
Live it your way.
Keep pushing on no matter what they say.
YOU ARE NOT A CLONE. WE ARE MORE THAN JUST SKIN AND BONE.

Don't let the world get the best of you. The best of you.
Your flaws are not theirs to define
You get to be your own design.
Your story is not theirs to write.
Your path's not theirs to pave.
To their words pay no attention.
You are your own creation.

No one can define me...
I COULDN'T BE MYSELF UNTIL I KNEW WHO THAT WAS
I COULDN'T FIND MYSELF UNTIL I STARTED SEARCHING.

My family built me from within. Friends stuck by me through thick and thin.
But it's up to me to decide how the world is affected by my life.

Don't let the world get the best of you. The best of you.
Your flaws are not theirs to define
You get to be your own design.
Your story is not theirs to write.
Your path's not theirs to pave.
To their words pay no attention.
You are your own creation.

My failures haven't won... the best is yet to come!
TAKE IT. ALL THE PASSION. ALL THE COURAGE. YOU HAVE INSIDE.
PUT IT. ON THE FRONTLINES. LET THEM SEE WHO. YOU REALLY ARE.
Standing on the edge of yesterday, I'm not proud of what I see.
But standing on the edge of tomorrow lies A NEW OPPORTUNITY.

I thought a penny for my thoughts was a penny too much.
Can't believe how weak I was, but never again.
We are the brave, we are the few.
We are the ones that follow through.
We will fight the current,
'Cause our path is ours to choose.

I let the world get the best of me.
But no one shares my reflection.
I am my own creation.
Track Name: To the Moon and Back
We're playing with fire,
A dangerous desire,
But if we do it right,
We can light up the sky.

I didn't wanna let it start.
That way we'd never have to fall apart.
Save a match, don't build the bridge.
Prevent the wound and save us both a stitch.
But I knew I'd made a mistake,
But you said it wasn't too late.

I've never met anyone like you.
Someone who cares the way that you do.
My heart and mind were no longer friends,
But you brought them back together again.

We're playing with fire,
A dangerous desire,
But if we do it right,
We can light up the sky.
You put the fear in me.
You take the air I breathe.
I'm not afraid of the flames or the fog,
But for the one that's burning with me.

I thought these wings would no longer fly.
I was a bird falling out of the sky,
But you were there to catch me,
And mend my wings ever so gently.
And I can't shake this feeling.
Can't tell if I'm still breathing.
I'm questioning everything I've ever known.
But stick with me, and you’ll never be alone.

So I'll lay it all on the line.
Always and forever on my mind.
You've got a heart of gold
Worth more than any treasure a man can hold.

We're playing with fire,
A dangerous desire,
But if we do it right,
We can light up the sky.
You put the fear in me.
You take the air I breathe.
I'm not afraid of the flames or the fog,
But for the one that's burning with me.

This is the beginning of
A love that will never lose its flare.
We've got something so so rare and I'm not going anywhere.
I don't wanna let this go.
I'm gonna let the whole world know.

You put the fear in me.
You take the AIR I BREATHE.
Just know if you ever leave,
I'll still be burning.
We're playing with fire,
A dangerous desire,
But if we do it right,
WE CAN LIGHT UP THE SKY.
Track Name: The War Between Love and Hate
THIS IS THE WAR BETWEEN LOVE AND HATE.
Choose your side.
TO DEFEND WHAT'S RIGHT, WOULD YOU SEAL YOUR FATE?
Tell me, would you die?

I WILL NEVER FALTER, I WILL NEVER YIELD
I WILL TAKE MY PLACE ON THIS BATTLEFIELD
AGAINST THE FOUL AND AGAINST THE DARK
I WILL FIGHT TIL THE VERY LAST BEAT OF MY HEART.

Well if there's one thing... that I know.
It's that I don't know anything at all.
But I'll stand for what I believe in,
Even if I'm the only one standing.

This is the war between love and hate.
You take your aim, but you're too late.
Now it's my turn to defend what's true.
You'd better run. Before I catch you.

RUN AWAY, RUN AWAY, AS FAST AS YOU CAN.
Don't make me forget the person that I am.
Hatred is a poison. Hatred is a plague.
I WANNA BE THE CURE, NOT A PART OF YOUR DISEASE.

Well if there's one thing... that I know.
It's that I don't know anything at all.
But I'll stand for what I believe in,
Even if I'm the only one standing.

WHEN IT'S ALL SAID AND DONE AND MY TIME HAS COME,
DON'T YOU DARE MOURN, ‘CAUSE I'VE ALREADY WON.
I just hope they say a good man is sleeping sound.
What will you leave behind WHEN YOU'RE SIX FEET IN THE GROUND?

Well if there's one thing that I know.
It's that I don't know anything at all.
The harder I try, the further I fall.
But I'll stand for what it is I believe in,
Even when I'm the only one. The only one standing. The only one standing.
Track Name: The Beauty Before the Beast
They chained me up to a tree.
Daggers, bricks, and stones they threw.
They only act on instinct.
They know not what they do.

You tried to block and cease them.
You tried to help them see.
The danger was so real,
But it wasn't coming from me.

They judged me by my cover,
But you read me like a book.
All they saw was a monster.
It was you who understood.

You didn't see an animal.
You saw a human being.
In this story, you are the beauty.
And I am the beast.

They look but they don't see.
They built the cage that set me free.
They called it destiny.
You called it blasphemy.
They hear but they don't listen.
They only fear what's risen.
They try to keep me imprisoned.
You can't change their decision.

You were the one who made me feel alive.
Just like the moon, you're so captivating.
Throughout this curse, you never left my side.
Even in the darkest of nights, you shine bright.
When a creature was all they could see,
You saw the man in me.
You saved me, saved me. Now I owe you my life.
They'll never take us. They'll never break us down.

This crowd is growing restless.
Still all your efforts are endless.
Does your kindness have no bounds?
Why do you still stand your ground?

As this world is falling apart,
You've given me a reason to start
Believing there might just still be
A heart somewhere deep within me.

As this world turns to ashes,
I'm watching as my life flashes,
But these are not my memories.
They're dreams of what we could be.

I appreciate all that you've done,
But baby it's time to run.
They won't stop ‘til they see blood.
Well then I'll give 'em a flood.

Now I see them charging.
Why are you not budging?
To me, I care not what they do,
But God help them if they touch you.
They won't be given a sentence.
I'll erase them from existence.
With God as my witness,
I will have my vengeance.

You were the one who made me feel alive.
Just like the moon, you're so captivating.
Throughout this curse, you never left my side.
Even in the darkest of nights, you shine bright.
When a creature was all they could see,
You saw the man... the man in me.
You saved me, saved me. Now I owe you my life.
They'll never take us. They'll never break us down.


You are the beauty.
I am the beast.
