Fog of War 05:04
This life we live Is a great fire zone We learn to march as one And still we stand alone Hard for me to turn, and face the pain That lingers inside me Won't go away It comes in like a violent storm And I keep holding on And then calm Mortar rains And drowns the sky There's a cloud of confusion When we don't see eye to eye Ghosts of the past reappear again Faces we once knew Are so real, and then They're still haunting you They pass right through And then they're gone... Oh, oh, oh, oh I'll see you there I'll see you there I'll see you there I'll see you there This life we live Is a great battle zone We've learned to love And still we stand alone Brothers divided in their hearts Children, their world torn apart Still cut through the fog To where the air is clear And I'll see you there Oh, oh, oh, oh I'll see you there I'll see you there In this fog of war Love make me strong In this fog of war Love make me strong Cause it takes its toll on me.

Surrender 04:49
I always feel the same When we can't work it out I should have called you I should have surrendered I always feel the shame When the lights flicker out and fade I shouldn't have come back I shouldn't have lost myself In a game of right and wrong Where wrong isn't always right I can't be strong And now, I surrender It used to matter how We would get along Now it feels like we're strangers And strange is the calm It's not innocence we lost In the dark No one is innocent At the dawn Now I'm here for you Now, I'm here for you Now, I'm here for you I surrender I surrender

What can you see When the light is not your own The faces you meet The basis of feelings you wish were left alone I'm on the street Collecting pieces In whispers that remain unknown Its hard to conceive of your direction When you roam The emptiness feeds How can it be You need to leave to find your home What you are, keeps taking me What you feel, means you can't be that far You are the mystery You are the missing piece that hides from me You fade, when I see you in the water It's you that I need to meet Or is this just fantasy You're drifting away And I watch you go I miss you You say you know Then you're gone What do you need You're taking me And I don't know where you'll lead You are the mystery You are the missing piece, you hide from me And I know you want to be on the water But I still hope you see me You are the mystery You are the missing piece that hides in me You see the pain in my eyes And you feel the hopelessness I feel When I wake up early in the morning From my dreams That always seem to leave a hole Well you got to know That you got to me Can we try to see That there is more for you and me But you're letting go Where do you want to go what do you want to know Where do you want to go What do you want to be Well do we believe enough? Don't let go of you and me You're the mystery You're the mystery You're the mystery You're the best part of me Don't let go. You're the mystery

Fault Lines 04:37
You want me to blame For the tension that you think you know Lurking deep inside of you You, you want me to explain Forgive the noises that you think you hear Echoing right in front of you They're not your fault You, you're trying to contain Forces splitting away Shifting right from under you They're not your fault When the ground shakes You need something to hold on to When your heart breaks You need something to hold on to Who can you fault? When the ground shakes You need something to hold on to When the Earth quakes You're looking for something to hold on to You do You do

June You're keeping your distance again In silence You find resistance in a pen Are you feeling helpless in your fight? So helpless now, can you help someone October The rain pours down for days The home we long for seems so far away Still we say we're not afraid To stay in this fight Kiss the cold as we say goodnight Say, say what's changed in your heart Save, Save us form harm You know what it means To lose yourself Say which side your on (Don't say goodnight) Words of peace Rest uneasy in your hand Is power ruled by fear 'Cause freedom comes with power to do what's right And still we send, these letters home We won't say goodbye Say, say what's changed in your heart Save, save us from harm You know what this means Don't lose yourself Say the time has come Say, say what's changed in your heart Save, save us from harm You know what this means Don't lose yourself Say we're truly one

Rain on Me 04:26
Take a walk Hear the talk You've heard it all before You never really seem to want to close the door She slams at you The rain it falls Takes everything you have The devils preach Escape just to be bad Tense the scene Triggers smoke Cry like a weeping bird Cloud rolls by A baby's cry is all you ever heard Blind my be A monkey's tail A table full of art She calls you dummy Try to run Trying to be smart Rain on me Rain on me You know that I want more You close the door behind me And fall apart on the floor You know I want more You close the door behind me And fall apart on the floor Take a walk Hear the talk You've heard it all before You never really seem to want to close the door She slams at you The rain it falls Takes everything you have The devils preach Escape just to be bad Intense the scene Triggers smoke Cry like a weeping bird Cloud rolls by A baby's cry is all you ever heard Blind my best A monkey's tail A table full of art She calls you dummy Try to run Trying to be smart Rain on me Rain on me

Take these shoes I don't think I need them Take this shirt It's stained cause I'm bleeding They don't mean that much To me anymore Free this mind It's trapped always believing Who's the blame When we know they way it's been going Help me wash Away these stains We thought we had it all What we build We watch it crumble away The decline of the empire Is coming on When the mighty fumble And you can't run When you feel like everything you know Has been taken away Well take it slow The decline of the empire It's coming on When the mighty crumble You should run And steal back everything you've lost And then take it slow We'll take it slow

The Future 04:38
Don't talk too much about the future Don't go burying your head in the snow We talk a lot about the future... And all the things that we can't know That's one thing about the the future It's not for us to know We think a lot about the future Where we'll go and where we'll be Baby, Don't be scared of the future And all the things that we can't see Tat's one thing ahout the future. There's no thougth about what ight have been There's no particular hurry We'll get there when we can We won't be scared of the future And all the things that we can be That's one thing about the future It's written for you and me Hold on Hold on For the future Hold on For you and me Hold on Hold on Hold on for the future Hold on Hold on to you and me That's one thing about the future It's written by you and me.
