Warm 03:44
When there's no sky left to breathe When there's no river left to drink There's no future There is no future left for me When there's no tree left to burn When the oceans boil and churn There's no future There is no future left for me When there's no sky left to breathe When there's no river left to drink When there's no tree left to burn When the oceans boil and churn There's no future left for me There's no future left for me There's no future

I'm letting it go One day at a time With every sunrise With every goodnight I know that we won't Be here forever Let's live in the moment We're here together One life to love One life to live and lose Lives we don't choose Stop looking backward Let it carry you We all say goodbye We all break the tether Let's live in the moment Like nothing else matters One life to love One life to live and lose Lives we don't choose Stop looking backward Let it carry you Stop looking backward

Futures Gone 02:51
I can't shake the feeling A mark I can't erase Like slow moving through the motions Dreaming half awake I won't live afraid Won't stay in bed Door shut and locked Covers over my head The world out there Is a great unknown I won't turn my back Like the future's gone I can't think about tomorrow When I can't see past today But I won't stop believing There's no other way I won't live afraid Won't stay in bed Door shut and locked Covers over my head The world out there Is a great unknown I won't turn my back Like the future's gone I won't turn my back Like the future's gone I won't turn my back Like the futures gone

I am broke and angry I am broken down I don't see a solution Or an easy way out If I'm clutching driftwood In a raging sea Hope ain't nothing but A ship in the night to me Soon a rising tide Will crash over my head And the current will drag me Straight down to the bed In the dark of the water There's no light left to see Under all of that weight There ain't no strength to break free I can't feel nothing I can't feel nothing no more I was fed the gospel Of the prosperous church And I ate my fill But my hunger got worse So I bought the notion Hard work would pay off Knowing well the price But not knowing the cost Now I'm looking up Knowing all too well That down here at the bottom I'm the product to sell Though I see my life As a drop in the pond To think there'd be an ocean Without me is wrong I can't be nothing I can't be nothing no more No more No more No more No more No more No more No more No more No more No more No more No more No more I can't say nothing I can't say nothing no more

How do we brush off a thousand years of dust See past all we've lost before it settles? We can change the world tomorrow When I look back at why we're broken I know we will never be made whole The shell is cracked The wound is open But our will is our resolve 'Cause we are diamonds in the coal We are invincible Walking blind into a cloud
6.
If this is all that is what is it? If there's a voice out there whose is it? What happens when What happens when it's gone? What happens when What happens when I Know like my blood is red There is nothing after Do I hold up my end And pretend that it all matters? For what? For what? For what? Someone fill me in To what To what To what I've been missing What happens when it happens? If this is all that is what is it? If there's a voice out there whose is it? What happens when What happens when it's gone? What happens when What happens when it's gone?

Black highway A dark river running I see my life The glare is blinding Headlights From the other side Watch out We're crossing over To a great unknown Where all that was We can't return to We're halfway there But mostly nowhere We're mostly nowhere
8.
The hurt inside me grows Would I rather feel nothing at all? So deep it does not show Would I rather feel nothing? It won't be long It won't be long It won't be long It won't be long For what I do not know My emptiness can only grow Alone in the Bardo Am I waiting for something? Feels like falling with nothing below It won't be long It won't be long It won't be long It won't be long It won't be long It won't be long (it won't be long) It won't be long It won't be long (it won't be long) It won't be long

Back In Time 03:09
Back in time Take me back in time Somewhere back in time Where all my days don't look like night 'Cause nothing feels right Here or anywhere I'll say goodbye To the bottle and try Try to make a good world Before I drink it dry We watch our lives slip by In the blink of an eye Watch them speed away like light! Back in time Back in time
