Track Name: Hyper Beam
[Verse 1]
This story started in a time long past,
It was a beautiful sight to behold.
A memory that left me all too fast,
A treasure I never thought I would hold.

It's going further and further.
I didn't know I was brought down.
But when I realize,
Just like a mist, it had me covered all around.

[Chorus]
Though I don't close my eyes,
It feels like a dream (whoa oh oh).
It's better than what it seems
(whoa oh oh).
Every time you are on my mind,
I break at the seams (whoa oh oh).
I'm hit with a hyper beam,
It's a critical hit!

[Verse 2]
It's like I'm staring at the universe,
Right from the window that leads to your soul.
Invigorated by your peaceful fire,
Even your words seem like pure, fine gold.

I won't let anyone take this,
Even if they want me brought down!
A strength that flows alive,
This feeling values higher than any crown.

[Chorus]
Though I don't close my eyes,
It feels like a dream (whoa oh oh).
It's better than what it seems
(whoa oh oh).
Every time you are on my mind,
I break at the seams (whoa oh oh).
I'm hit with a hyper beam...

And now I'm lying here...

[Bridge]
Breathless, helpless,
Overwhelmed, blown away.
Inside I'm blazing when your words I hear.
In the void, alight without fear.
I see my doubts fleeing.

[End]
If you're here, let me see you bring it!

Everybody say one, two, three, four!

Go!

And this is why we're here,
Let's break it down!

Let me see, let me see you bring it!

Let this feeling remain forevermore!
Track Name: Semicolon ; Re-issue
Surrounded by thoughts
That weigh me down
The pressure building up inside
I'm starting to crack
As darkness engulfs my reason and my sanity

I've lived a life enshrouded by misfortune
Every day I wake I wish I wasn't who I am today

I hate my life and this tug of war
Going on between me and death
Crushing my soul
I can't take much more of this (more of this)

In every scar a story told
But I just can't lose control of me
I see the smile in others' face
So I just wear one too to hide my bane

But my silence gives it aid
I need out before I fade

This tug-o'-war wears me down,
Drags me around
Numbness seeps deep within,
Life becomes a chore
No purpose, no reason
To keep this up

I've lived a life enshrouded by misfortune
Every day I wake I wish I wasn't whom I have become

I might as well end it here...

But as I contemplate my final hour
My whole life flashes by in an instant

I see glimpses of the smile I used to show
A smile fueled by sincerity

The carefreeness of simpler times
When worries weren't part of the equation

Where did I go? When did I lose myself?
I want out... I want out!

Ripping through these walls
I have built to cage myself

I can't leave, I'm not fulfilled
If I'm still here, I'm not done yet
I'm not done yet

I'll live another day
Track Name: It's Not Delivery, It's DiStruggle
[Verse]
Another day, another day in paradise
Journeys far behind
I'm following my dreams

In time see the signs
Turned on a sudden dime,
Will I read between the lines?

[Pre-Chorus]
'Cause I know
Things are not what they used to be
My eyes opened wide

[Chorus]
The more I think about it,
The more I struggle
The more I think about it,
The more I stumble
I've been going 'round in circles,
'round in circles
But when I look around me,
Everything is just fine

But is it a crime?!

[Verse 2]
Though found I've been blinded in my searching
And in bliss, lost, lying in this maze

But my reason came when I...
I saw the other side
Without space, without time

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Now I know,
There is something bigger than this
Have you wondered why?

[Chorus 2]
The more I think about it,
The more I struggle
The more I think about it,
The more I stumble
I've been going 'round in circles
and circles
But when I look around me,
Everything seems just fine

[Breakdown]
But instead my mind pours out
There's no rest for the weary
Instead my mind is crying out
"I need peace inside"

[Bridge]
(Instrumental)

[Pre-Chorus 3]
But I know,
There is one Truth only,
One Way
My spirit's alive

[Chorus 3]
The more I think about it,
The more I surrender
The more I think about it,
The more I'm tempted
I see the end, we're almost there
But when I realize it I know
But when I realize it,
Everything is just fine
Track Name: Frostbite
[Verse 1]
An arctic
Reflection
These violent winds cutting into my skin
Ice cold
Heartless
Face to face with deceit
I can clearly see...

[Pre-Chorus/Breakdown]
... in your eyes
The numbness of your lies
My demise
(Birthed from your frozen heart)

[Chorus]
Around and around we go taken by the hand
(This is just another game)
A false sense of warmness grew in my poisoned mind
(But to you it's all the same)

[Verse 2]
Intoxicated with this venture
Try as I might I can't seem to get away
Just a toy to your collection
Paradise to prison
A glacial escape

[Breakdown 2]
Tossed and thrown by your cold winds
(This blizzard)
Temptation takes over as you poison me
(You cloud my clarity)

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Like the night
It's seduction born from ice
Frost begins
To cover me

[Chorus]
Around and around we go taken by the hand
(This is just another game)
A false sense of warmness grew in my poisoned mind
(But to you it's all the same)

[Pre Bridge]
Graceful yet frigid

Honest in pretense

A deadly allure

Blissfully leading me astray

[Bridge]
Shackled by attention
Everything's finally going your way
Frozen in deception
(I'm) Helplessly preyed on, your wiles have infected my mind!

[End Verse]
A wolf and a lamb...
Lead the other by the hand...
If this was meant to last...
I wouldn't be looking as if through glass.
Track Name: Another One
[Verse 1]
I won't forget
The time we spent
Looking for our mind's escape

Through ups and downs
Through ins and outs
But never breaking in the end

[Verse 1-2]
The open sky our home
On clouds we roam
Limits die here

And at the speed of sound
No longer bound
We have no fear

[Pre-Chorus]
Remember the days when our eyes were bold
Let's seize them, and let's take hold

They're asking you "what are you waiting for?"
Release it, just let it go!

No time like the present to meet your goals
Let's get this show on the road!

[Chorus]
Today, today
I leave my mark in the sun
My kin, my brothers will live on

Today, today
A whole new chapter begun
My friends, my memories go on

Go!

[Breakdown]
A whole new chapter's begun

[Bridge]
Through mountains
Or valleys
Whatever's standing in our way

We'll face it
Or remove it
Make like Lebouf and DO IT!

[Verse 2]
And in the end
When all is said
And with no room left for regret

Despite the noise
You'll hear our voice
Saying "we're not finished yet"

[Verse 2-2]
Though clouds may form above
They won't stay long
The sun will burn on

And with our heads held high
Eyes to the sky
We see redemption
