Chase Tremaine Okay, so yeah, I play for this band. But this album was written before I joined and I can genuinely say I am a FAN of this incredible rock album. Favorite track: Paper People.

Track Name: Resurrect
how can you be dead
if you were never alive
you were never alive

we're digging ourselves out of this grave
and we're leaving you behind
watch the phoenix come to life
and close your eyes

stay forever blind
Track Name: Paper People
do you remember what it's like to feel your skin
wrapped inside the sweet escape, this hole you're living in
blame it on your limits and believe we'll never know
find shelter in your innocence with nowhere left to go
cut you out a perfect house and build it up on sand
we can watch the walls bend and break as the waves crash right in
foundation starts to tremble and the roof begins to blow
the waves come down questioning where will you go
i wouldn't break your fall if i had a thousand hands
bottom's where you need to be for you to understand
a lie's a lie it doesn't matter how white
the darkest days and darker nights hide behind those bloodshot eyes
but no, we'll never know
cut you out a perfect house and build it up on sand
we can watch the walls bend and break as the waves crash right in
foundation starts to tremble and the roof begins to blow
the waves come down questioning where will you go
find your way back home, kid
there's nothing left for you
find your way back home, kid
there's nothing left to lose
cut you out a perfect house and build it up on sand
we can watch the walls bend and break as the waves crash right in
foundation starts to tremble and the roof begins to blow
the waves come down questioning where will you go
find your way back home, kid
there's nothing left for you
find your way back home, kid
there's nothing left to lose
Track Name: Search the Sky
desire was a fire, burning bright just like the sun
but i lost my way and fell apart in a war i almost won
deception is the answer when your back's against the wall
so i built this cage around myself designed to break my fall
but so far it's for nothing, the rusting takes it's toll
the man i was suppose to be was given to the world
i cast my blame on no one but the me i can't forgive
and i'll make no apologies, my pride outweighs my guilt
and i, i've never been gone for so long
and i'm alive, but only for so long
i'd search the sky for answers, but i'm stuck inside my head
i'd make my way back home if i could find the place i left
we see what we choose to see
we’re just forcing our eyes to believe it’s alright
i seem to be losing my mind
break all your mirrors and fake all your vows
sooner or later we’ll figure you out
we seem to be after the same thing
(the shadow lies when you step into the light
you close your eyes but your mind has even more to hide
break all your mirrors, fake all your answers)
i, i’ve never been gone for so long
and i’m alive, but only for so long
i’d search the sky for answers, but i’m stuck inside my head
i’d make my way back home if i could find the place i left
we search for understanding anywhere beyond ourselves
we don’t trust the voice inside our head for fear it might come out
we'll search the sky for answers but ignore the heart in our chest
and sacrifice our memories for whatever eternity we can get
i’ve been gone for so long
and i can’t make any sense of this
i’ve been waiting for so long
to find the place i left
and i, i’ve never been gone for so long
and i’m alive, but only for so long
Track Name: Let's Be Honest
in my own way i could say this was my plan all along
we grow apart inch by inch
and dance all night where the devil sits
hostages of our ignorance
we don’t lie to one another
we just accept each other’s fears
so what’s the point of being honest
when we can’t even save ourselves from what we really are
hiding behind a mirror of lies, broken to pieces the memory dies
but i’ll never let you forget that you’re alone
in the spirit of understanding i am rich beyond compare
but patience is a virtue of which there’s no less i could care
i’ve seen my share of rebirth and i’ve played my hand in death
all these things that keep me breathing will soon bring me my end
so what’s the point of being honest
when we can’t even save ourselves from what we really are
hiding behind a mirror of lies, broken to pieces the memory dies
but i’ll never let you forget that you’re alone
the time has come for comfort to be taken and destroyed
the atrophy is setting in and you cannot fill the void
you left my body shaking and i left you out to burn
in a place that i once called my home now stands a lesson learned
in my own way i could say i never planned to stay at all
we fell apart piece by piece
i watched this house collapse and never blinked
i saw what i needed to see and walked away
Track Name: Failing Eyes 2
can you see without your sight
can you hide behind these failing eyes
i took a stab in the dark
and i found more than i wanted
(am i everything i think i am)
is it that i'm scared, no i don't believe i fear
i'm just questioning myself to make sure that this is real
write it off as falling
it's easier to give myself away
what if i told you i was just getting by
i'm just getting by
could it be you're that naive
can't you see that you're just incomplete
i second guessed my first consensus
if i said it, i never meant it
come on down join the rest of us
got a spot right here for you
take a seat upon your throne
and you can tell us what to do
write it off as falling
it's easier to give myself away
what if i told you i was just getting by
i'm just getting by
and if i never said a word
would you even care at all
it's darker than it seems from the outside
this is my life
an empty shell of mis-belief
a broken record of defeat
tie my hands and take my eyes
prepare to fall a thousand times
Track Name: Whiskey from the Well
in the future i see, we agree to disagree
cause there's nothing left worth fighting for
we stay dragging our heels through the mud
passion was a game we played when we were young
we started a fire
we can't escape
cause you were never the one i wanted
whiskey from the well and cheap perfume
the sand is at the bottom of the hourglass
do i bother to flip it over
i guess we both got what we wanted
this one night stand has gone too far
a little too much too close for comfort we are
well i'm dancing all around what words to say
sidestepping landmine analogies
and i'm dodging bullets made out of "it's okay"
cause it's not and i think you know it
i desperately breathed in (everything you said and)
and i hate to disagree (with such wisdom)
cause you were never the one i wanted
whiskey from the well and cheap perfume
the sand is at the bottom of the hourglass
do i bother to flip it over
i guess we both got what we wanted
this one night stand has gone too far
a little too much too close for comfort we are
so say goodbye to this broken home
i gave up on you long ago
but you gave up on yourself
before i ever had the chance
say goodnight to this setting moon
who lives a lie of light consumed
and shines upon the waves
to bring them crashing down on you
cause you were never the one i wanted
whiskey from the well and cheap perfume
the sand is at the bottom of the hourglass
do i bother to flip it over
i guess we both got what we wanted
this one night stand has gone too far
a little too much too close for comfort we are
Track Name: Anathema
i could teach you a thing about comfort
or settling for what you think you deserve
but i'm preaching to the choir
of the house that fell apart
are you there, can you see
did the darkness deliver it's sting
is this all what it seemed
we're all in over our heads
tell me i'm wasting my breath on you
and i'll try to believe it
save me from wasting my time on you
and i promise to leave it alone
teach me a thing about tragedy
exaggerate every detail you can
we speak with the words we've been fed before
but we don't understand their worth
tell me i'm wasting my breath on you
and i'll try to believe it
save me from wasting my time on you
and i promise to leave it alone
if i could walk away
don't you know i would
but i taught you to run away
don't you know i wish you would
tell me i'm wasting my breath on you
and i'll try to believe it
save me from wasting my breath on you
and i promise to leave it alone
this facade is just a phase
when you take it away we're just bones and our decisions
the memory fades, but the truth stays the same
promise me change and i promise to leave it alone
Track Name: Alive
why is the end always at somebody's middle
why does a friend leave a void when they're gone
i see eyes lit like candles amongst all the rubble
and i dream of the day they'll burn bright
we were weightless for a moment in time
we realized we were stuck but we taught ourselves to fly
and i'm alone for a minute or two
don't think i didn't think of you the whole way down
i'll see you on the other side
i close my eyes, i see you with your little clone
i feel the air, it's just a breeze that's running through your hair
my arms and legs are free, i wrap them all around you
and suddenly i am standing by your side
we were weightless for a moment in time
we realized we were stuck but we taught ourselves to fly
and i'm alone for a minute or two
don't think i didn't think of you the whole way down
i'll see you on the other side
i sent a message through the wind
and though i won't be home again
the words are written in the way it moves the clouds outside our house
you words fly swiftly through the air
i can feel you everywhere
i can hear the song we'll sing when we're together once again

I'm Alive.
