2. The Enemy Inside

Over and over again

I relive the moment
I'm bearing the burden within
Open wounds hidden under my skin

Pain is real as a cut that bleeds

The face I see every time I try to sleep
Staring at me crying

[CHORUS]

I'm running from the enemy inside
Looking for the life I left behind
These suffocating memories are etched upon my mind
And I can't escape from the enemy inside

I sever myself from the world

and shut down completely
All alone in my own living hell
overcome with irrational fear

Under the weight of the world on my chest

I buckle and break as I try to catch my breath
Tell me I'm not dying

[CHORUS]

I'm running from the enemy inside
Looking for the life I left behind
These suffocating memories are etched upon my mind
And I can't escape from the enemy inside

I'm a burden and a travesty

I'm a prisoner of regret
Between the flashbacks and the violent dreams
I am hanging on the edge

Disaster lurks around the bend

Paradise came to an end
And no magic pill
can bring it back again

[CHORUS]

I'm running from the enemy inside
Looking for the life I left behind
These suffocating memories are etched upon my mind
And I can't escape from the enemy inside



3. The Looking Glass

I would not expect you felt unnoticed and ignored

Better to rise above the clouds Then be a stranger in the crowd
All that you protected doesn’t matter anymore
Rather be stripped of all your pride
Than watch your dreams be cast aside

You are caught up in your gravity

Glorifying stardom
Singing your own praise

You live without shame

You’re digging up a gold mine
Standing on the sidelines
Watching through the looking glass

You are not content with being nameless and unknown

Trying to rise above the fray
Eager to give it all away

Some will not admit that 15 minutes have expired

Too much attention much too soon
Don’t see you walking on the moon

You are caught up in your gravity

Bathing in the spotlight
Imitating fame

You live without shame

You’re digging up a gold mine
Standing on the sidelines
Watching through the looking glass

You are caught up in your gravity

Glorifying madness
Singing your own praise

You live without shame

You’re digging up a gold mine
Standing on the sidelines
Watching through the looking glass

You live without shame

You’re digging up a gold mine
Standing on the sidelines
Watching through the looking glass

5. The Bigger Picture

Long before the colors start to bleed

I can see the painting come alive
Clever like an angel in disguise 
Moving in and out of reach 

If the candle lights this crooked path

Like a lighthouse peering through the haze
I will find the river through the rain 
And I’ll reach the water’s edge 

Shed your light on me

Be my eyes when I can’t see 
Shed your light on me 
Be my guide so I can see
The Bigger Picture 

Like a moth burned by the fire 

and driven to the flame 
(Prophecies’ a blessing and a curse) 
I must bare this cross alone
There’s no one else to blame 
With each treasure found
Another shipwreck’s washed ashore
I am carried by the current
On a slow and steady course 

[CHORUS] 


What If caught in a moment 

I get lost and can't find my way
What if all along i was wrong 
In every turn, In every way 

Would you talk me off the ledge 

Or let me take the fall 
Better to try and fail 
then to never try at all 

You look but cannot see

Talk but never speak
You live but cannot breathe
See but don’t believe 

Wounds that never heal

A heart that cannot feel
A dream that’s all too real 
A stare as cold as steel

I’ve listened to the stories of resentment and disdain

I’ve looked into the empty eyes of anger, fear, and shame
I’ve taken blood from every stone 
And traveled every road 

When I see the distant lights illuminate the night

Then I will know I am home 



6. Behind The Veil

What would possess you to justify

Such dark and twisted ways?
What kind of monster would come to feast
When the devil shows his face?
What does it take for life to change
And a mind to lose control?
Cruelly left you to suffer the blame
After all the lies you told

I am finding courage in my darkest hour

I am bent, not broken
Calling out

Someone save me, look behind the veil

Please don't walk away
Someone save me, bring me home tonight
I can't face another day

Can you see the stranger

Hiding in plain sight?
Feeding on the chaos
When the lightning strikes
There's no redemption
There's no being saved
There's no salvation
For a soul depraved

You are finding promise in your finest hour

You are bent, not broken
Calling out



7. Surrender To Reason

In moments of pain 

Where heart and mind collide
Self reflection helps me decide
I believe the sacrifices in life
Give more than they take 

Visions flowing slowly shedding light

Memories swimming in the sea of time
Pieces to the puzzle falling into place
That with which we struggle through we’ve learned to embrace 

Love show the way, alter my state of mind

Wash away the sorrow 
Grace lead the way
When boundaries are found
Surrender to reason

Life gives you brighter days 

Through sacrifices made
My spirit travels like the wind and waves
My heart and mind unite
Mistakes resolved give sight 
The river’s currents slowly turns the stone 

Restless angels

Help me find my way
Restless angels 
Help me find my strength 

Restless angels 

Help me find my way
Restless angels 
Let love show the way
Let grace be the way 
Surrender to reason



8. Along For The Ride

At this moment words fail me

And my vision's unclear
Blind to the truth
Like hands reaching out in the darkness

[CHORUS]

I can't stop the world from turning around
Or the pull of the moon on the tide
But I don't believe that we're in this alone
I believe we're along for the ride
I believe we're along for the ride

Through the gift of surrender

I'm embracing the fight
Breaking the code
There's clarity on the horizon

[CHORUS]

I can't stop the world from turning around
Or the pull of the moon on the tide
But I don't believe that we're in this alone
I believe we're along for the ride
I believe we're along for the ride

I will not live under a shadow of fear

Never be crippled by chaos and doubt
Fall prey to your madness

I am not shattered

Out of the ashes I rise
Knowing that nothing is stronger than faith
Finding hope in our hopeless lives

[CHORUS]

I can't stop the world from turning around
Or the pull of the moon on the tide
But I don't believe that we're in this alone
I believe we're along for the ride

I can't stop the world from turning around

Or the pull of the moon on the tide
But I don't believe that we're in this alone
I believe we're along for the ride
I believe we're along for the ride
I believe we're along for the ride

[I. Paradoxe de la Lumière Noire]


[Instrumental]


[II. Live, Die, Kill]


Consider this question 

Look deep inside 
Deliver a true confession 
What are you willing to live for? 

Consider this question

Open your eyes 
Examine your own reflection 
What are you willing to die for? 

When your backs’ against the wall 

And the time's uncertain
Consider this question
No standing by
When flesh and blood are threatened 
What are you willing to kill for? 

We seek to understand

We cry with head in hand 

The bridges we build to connect 

The distance that makes us forget
Hate dividing us, love reminding us
Of our shared humanity 

Hope can be a shadow fleeting

I would rather die believing 
Capture it all in a final act of faith 

We seek to understand 

We cry with head in hand 

A story that needs to be told

An answer that begs to be found
The beauty we wish to behold
Is never too far away 

[III. The Embracing Circle]


[Instrumental]


[IV. The Pursuit Of Truth]


Mothers for their children

Husbands for their wives
Martyrs for the kingdom
Fighting for your life
A soldier for his country
A junkie for the high
Teachers for their students 
Vengeance for a crime
Rebels for their freedom
A tyrant for the praise
Cowards for salvation
Money, love, and fame

Noble and brave

Lay down our lives for the cause
Death over shame
Grace before glory 

[V. Surrender, Trust & Passion]


To really feel the joy in life

You must suffer through the pain
When you surrender to the light 
You can face the darkest days

If you open up your eyes

And you put your trust in love
On those cold and endless nights 
You will never be alone

Passion glows within your heart

Like a furnace burning bright 
Until you struggle through the dark
You’ll never know that you're alive
