Track Name: Through the Ashes
Run away to your perfect world,where it’s all about you.
Where you don’t have to try, where you can hide from your life.
I’m not your burden to bear, and your not mine.
Hey it’s me, I’m only the center of your world, Oh but wait now I’m nobody
Who are you, and when did this change occur?
You can’t take this and make it nothing.
You turned your back when things got hard, you walked away when this got real.
Keep saying we’re not in this together, how’s that supposed to make me feel?
I keep retracing my steps, to find the turn that I missed, when you decided that we could not coexist.
So now I’m asking you to stay, but I know that you wont.
You’ll throw it all away. When you go you take a piece of me
And that’s why I’m not running. I’m not running. (Just like you!)
So you say that you’ve been so unhappy; why pretend to be my family?
Play into my delusion that we were meant to be together.
You’ve made your choice, now I’ll make mine
I will stand up and fight for what is right for what is mine
I will not waiver, I will not falter
Watch me burn, then watch me rise!
So now I’m asking you to stay, but I know that you wont.
You’ll throw it all away. When you go you take a piece of me
And that’s why I’m not running. I’m not running. (Just like you!)
I won’t let you or anyone defeat me I’m rising above
So now I’m asking you to stay, but I know that you wont.
You’ll throw it all away. When you go you take a piece of me
And that’s why I’m not running. I’m not running. (Just like you!)
Watch me burn, then watch me rise, through the ashes.
Track Name: The Ascent
Sinking into madness, strapped down to my sadness, losing grip, bout to slip away from this world. Won’t be missed, can’t resist the urge to fall. Though I try to hold onto my vice to survive I’m thinking, there’s got to be a better way.
Can anybody hear me? I’m Screaming here out loud. No ones there. No one cares. It seems there no one and nothing to rely on.
Searching for redemption, finding only tension. Though they say, it’s ok I can see the disgust on their face. Can’t erase all my flaws. So, I’m here, Hit my low, so much worse than before I’m thinking, there’s got to be a better way.
Can anybody hear me? I’m Screaming here out loud. No ones there. No one cares. It seems there no one and nothing to rely on. Can anybody hear me? I’m screaming here out loud. Let it rip, but it’s missed. It pushes deeper and deeper until I'm gone.
So what is this? What have I become? I’m not the person I ever thought I’d be. And, that’s my fault, at my hands. I’ve got to take back control, but it’s hard, cause I keep on trying and trying still feels like dying but dying only proves them all right. (I’ve got to win this fight!) So I’ll keep on climbing and climbing until I’m flying cause flying is the only way to get back.
I want to, but I’m scared to, get past the past that is always pushing me over and over and over and over and over…Climb!
Can anybody hear me? I’m screaming here out loud. I reject and defy all the lies, I despise, that try to put me down. I know that you can see me. I will shatter every step. This will end with me flying, higher than imagined.
Track Name: This Dream (Can't take it Away)
I can’t see just what you want from me. I think that you’d agree I’ll give you what you need. No matter how I try I’m feeling so denied. Can someone tell me why I’m being cast aside? Bit by bit I stand and take these hits; making me feel unfit like you don’t give a shit. Say, can you hear my voice over all of this noise? I hope you make the choice to take a chance and follow me.
I’ve waited my whole life for this dream. Oh please, don’t take it away. Hey, I’m bearing my soul up on this stage. Oh please, don’t take it away.
Let’s proceed, there’s no catastrophe. I know that I’ll succeed. I’ll work until I bleed. You know I won’t back down. These hands they can’t be bound. You may push me around, but I will stand my ground. Here with you, tell me what I should do. I know I’ve much to prove. I want to make you move. No, I won’t go away I feel compelled to stay. Whatever price, I’ll pay. Just know, I’ve got this much to say.
I’ve waited my whole life for this dream. Oh please, don’t take it away. Hey, I’m bearing my soul up on this stage. Oh please, don’t take it away.
No you can’t take this away from me now. No you can’t take it away from me. I’m standing right here up on this stage. I wanna see you move. Move! Hey!
I’ve waited my whole life for this dream. Oh please, don’t take it away. Hey, I’m bearing my soul up on this stage. Oh please, don’t take it away. No you can’t take it away yeah!
