Track Name: Frontlines
Take off your covering
Slip on reality
Forget the photographs that prompted you to be scared
You see the world as weak
We see your lies as cheap
You could do anything without having your fake

Hair is cheap
But words can speak
For those who don't have
Any other way out
Promise me
That you'll stay to see
That I am not the enemy
I am not the enemy

Promise us everything
Deliver nothing
Forget the people who are thinking with their heads
You got the answers
We've got the numbers
You could do anything without having your fake

Hair is cheap
But words can speak
For those who don't have
Any other way out
Promise me
That you'll stay to see
That I am not the enemy
I am not the enemy

Look to the frontlines and you'll see
You're not the only one who bleeds
People are dying for their rights
Every night
Come together and you'll see
A peace that only hope can bring
People are dying for their rights

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
(Look to the frontlines and you'll see)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
(Look to the frontlines and you'll see)
Yeah. yeah, yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
(Look to the frontlines and you'll see)
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Track Name: Black
Heal me
Break me down
Touch me
Without a sound

I'll pray for you
Yeah, I'll pray for you

Love me
Hold me tight
Let me go
Without a fight

I'll pray for you
Yeah, I'll pray for you

Catch me
Before I fall
Kiss me
I want it all

I'll pray for you
Yeah, I'll pray for you

Waaaa

Heaven knows I've tried
To make the wrongs seem right
How come the good things never last
It's funny how we noticed that
Pick up on my distress
I'll make you one last bet
If we get through this then I'm set

Heaven knows I've tried (I've tried)
To make the wrongs seem right
How come the good things never last
It's funny how we noticed that
Pick up on my distress (Distress)
I'll make you one last bet
If we get through this then I'm set
Track Name: How to Hold Yourself
The person standing here before you
Is not the same kid you knew in years gone past
It doesn't matter what you say
I'm still giving up that game

A shot glass full of bitter things
And your cold heart melts from broken dreams
Your tattoo reads "self-destructive"
I'm still giving up that game

You don't want it
But you need it
You can have it
So come and get it

How far, how far will you go
To prove the things you were never really meant to show
Apathy can never last forever
When opportunity is so much better
You sit, and you cry, and you beg for your life
There's so much more than words can bring to life
And it's gold
Once you know
How to hold yourself

The person standing here before you
Is not the same kid you knew in years gone past
I made a couple of changes before
But now I've done it right

A slam dunk with a thought in mind
I really wonder if all that pressure was a tad unkind
The curtain closes on this stage of your life
And all you see is me

You don't want it
But you need it
You can have it
So come and get it

How far, how far will you go
To prove the things you were never really meant to show
Apathy can never last forever
When opportunity is so much better
You sit, and you cry, and you beg for your life
There's so much more than words can bring to life
And it's gold
Once you know
How to hold yourself

How far, how far will you go
To prove the things you were never really meant to show
Apathy can never last forever
When opportunity is so much better
You sit, and you cry, and you beg for your life
There's so much more than words can bring to life
And it's gold
Once you know
How to hold yourself
Track Name: Now or Never
Moments and memories collide
Reminiscing sparks the warmth in your eyes
Keeping time while the clouds break up the skies
Slow dancing while we stare at the moonlight

All I wanted was a chance
To be a part of your future plans
Take my hand and we'll go far
Escape the struggles within our hearts
Give me freedom or give me death
If I'm not with you then who is left
Make a choice and make it fast
This is now or never

Fill the void that used to be my heart
Smile big as we're waiting for the start
Inhibitions have left without a trace
The glass is empty but the liquor's running wild

All I wanted was a chance
To be a part of your future plans
Take my hand and we'll go far
Escape the struggles within our hearts
Give me freedom or give me death
If I'm not with you then who is left
Make a choice and make it fast
This is now or never

Whoowhoo (x2)

All I wanted was a chance
To be a part of your future plans
Take my hand and we'll go far
Escape the struggles within our hearts
Give me freedom or give me death
If I'm not with you then who is left
Make a choice and make it fast
This is now or never

All I wanted was a chance
To be a part of your future plans
Take my hand and we'll go far
Escape the struggles within our hearts
Give me freedom or give me death
If I'm not with you then who is left
Make a choice and make it fast
This is now or never
