1. Alter Ego

I am lost
Trapped in my head
But I'll tell a different story to my friends
I regret what I don't say
It never sticks with me
Please don't be ashamed

Fleeting dream
It can't be me
For today I'm a different person in the end
There is a circle of answers around me
But I'm completely unfounded
Please don't leave me alone

When you look up at night and count your lucky stars
My burning pride for you is not too far, it's not far at all

And when I said I'd be your friend, I meant 'till the bitter end
How could anyone understand?

Standing here is far from easy when I'm burning up
Chasing you could last a lifetime

Pull me out
Pretend you know me
Why'd you let me drown?
And fall slowly

I am lost
Trapped in my head
But I'll tell a different story to my friends
I regret what I don't say
It never sticks with me
Please don't be ashamed

Fleeting dream
It can't be me
For today I'm a different person in the end
There is a cirlce of answers around me
But I'm completely unfounded
Please don't leave me alone

I never meant to be a liar
I only wanted a happy end
I stand too close to the fire
And I end up burnt again

I never meant to be a liar
I only wanted a happy end
I stand too close to the fire
And I end up burnt again

Standing here is far from easy when I'm burning up
Chasing you could last a lifetime

Pull me out
Pretend you know me
Why'd you let me drown?
And fall slowly

So you want a fuckin' reason?
Well I'll give one to you!
I speak the lines you find pleasin'
Even if they ain't true

So you want a fuckin' reason?
Well I'll give one to you!
I speak the lines you find pleasin'
Even if they ain't true

I said I got a million seasons
That you'll have to get through
There's treasure in a rainbow
I swear it's all true



2. Great Captain

I
I fell off the earth again
I slipped in your eyes
I'm letting myself in, before you renounce me

I'm on the receiving end of an old light
Something I'm familiar with
But don't mistake my impression of
Having a good time

It wasn't my intention to stand here
And give in to my old convictions
And don't mistake the impression of having a good life

Liar
Coward
Thief
You're a martyr

Break me
Fill up my eyes with sun
Horizons above come close
Believe that we've come here for something
But I've been mistaken

Drowning, I'm swimming
But I'm floating away

Get lost in the open sun
I'm lost but I hope I'm wrong

Eyes filled with ire
They never tire

Get lost in the open sun
I'm lost but I hope I'm wrong

I'm on the receiving end of an old light
Something I'm familiar with
But don't mistake my impression of
Having a good time

It wasn't my intention to stand here
And give in to indecision
I promised you I'd be okay
Now look at me, look at me now

Break me
Fill up my eyes with sun
Horizons above come close
Believe that we've come here for something
But I've been mistaken

Cast aside
My old life
Pay the price
Putting us to sleep

Far away
There is a place
Deadly falling fast

Sinking pride
Cherished times
Married mind

Soundly peace surrounds me
As I burn alive inside

Face the facts, it's all an act
You're giving in to pride
I promise now I've finally found
My courage left behind

Punishment is supplimenting your decision to try
So face the facts it's all an act you're giving in,
Why try?

There once was a boy who had a cool toy, he called him his
Great Captain
But one fucking day it's all gone away, in debt to his
Great Captain

Fill me out bring me up
We're in debt to the sun



3. Sol

A sacred place everyone hides
Familiar answers here collide
It frees your mind

Safely I've hidden our own lies

You ask the questions, why?

Breath
Deep
Find
Peace

Our vices breed and it repeats

And I can feel the courage drifting by,
But do you feel it rushing?

Thoughts I have beginning again and again,
It doesn't make any sense
But now it's all over, over

Lay your head down
Join me when you're not awake
Hide us inside

Seems to me, there's a mistake in the price for existence
Plain to see, promises made we're supposed to be different

But I'm okay, I wouldn't ask for a life consistent
It's plain to see promised made were supposed to be different

But this is me, a tragedy
A life that's come close, I promise you most
Of my resistance is fleeting

A sacred place everyone hides
Familiar answers here collide
It frees your mind

Safely I've hidden our own lies
You ask the questions, why?

Breath
Deep
Find
Peace

Our vices breed and it repeats

And I can taste the salt from passing tides,
But can't you see it's rushing?

Thoughts I have beginning again and again,
It doesn't make any sense
But now it's all over, over

Lay your head down
Join me when you're not awake
Hide us inside

Look down and fall from
The sky

I'll live tomorrow, with time that I've borrowed
It's not forever, slowly I'll be better

But I'll try harder, if you'll come join me
This final time

I won't give in, I will persist
There is enough time
