Redeem code

Track Name: The Opener
We wait, to redeem
Our blood boils over, anticipating
It's a grand luxury
To be here in this moment there's not place I'd rather be

I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe
I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe
I believe, it's the feeling, I believe

Oh Oh Oh

All we wanted was a dream
A vessel to take us away from the mundane
We declare, to be free
It's a pursuit of passion, our own blood is a currency

I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe
I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe
I believe, it's the feeling, I believe

Oh Oh Oh
Track Name: Captains and Kings
I know, I accept that it's over
You want resolution through smiles
I know, I just want to be sober
Clear thought, clarity with no vile

You fear, you're afraid that I'm sorry
You know, that will kill all your hate
I care, I don't want you to worry
I wish, you'd just give me clean slate

Captains and Kings can never
Obtain the desire
Serenity is just a
Wild dream for lovers

You fear you're afraid that i'm sorry
You know, that will kill all your hate
I care, I don't want you to worry
I wish, you'd just give me clean slate

Captains and Kings can never
Obtain the desire
Serenity is just a
Wild dream for lovers
I want to give you something
That you'll remember
I have in my memory
What left us asunder
Track Name: Fight and Flight
Let me light, candles spike
Run through fields of clover
It's alright, strength and might
Leave foes scared and sober

So won't you come
We will run, we will run, away from
What we've done. It's a song and it's unsung
What have I done

We can't die, we will fight
Till the battle's over
Please don't fright, see the knights
Clad in shining armor

I will chase, with a race
To their camp, with diversions
Using words. A song and a verse
To wreck their charge

Running from what we thought
We could stray from avoiding
Chaos comes rips my lungs, and attacks my heart
And it's all my fault
So we're back to the start
Track Name: Part II - No Hiding Places
You are all I ever
Dreamed a person, could ever be
But this bleak truth we live for
Is really nothing more than sheer make believe

I can't think about it, 'cause you are everywhere inside of my brain
I can't drown my sorrows, 'cause you are in all of my favorite drinks
I can't sleep about it, ' cause you have infiltrated all of my dreams

I can't think about it, 'cause you are everywhere inside of my brain
I can't drown my sorrows, 'cause you are in all of my favorite drinks
I can't sleep about it, ' cause you have infiltrated all of my dreams

You've got me backed against a wall
And I know it's all my fault don't you know that I
Can't figure out, how to redeem this fall
Oh
You've got me backed against a wall
And I know it's all my fault don't you know that I
Can't figure out, how to redeem this fall
Track Name: Doubt
Sing, my song as loud as ever.
I want to be sure that you can hear my voice
Living like, I have the answers.
But drought destroys my hope of any choice
This drought destroys my hope of any choice

Light me up, set me on fire. I’m cold and need the warmth of your embrace
Dying in, my heart’s desire. If you can’t tell take a close look at my face
I’m lost so I hope I’m here within your grace

Can you follow this mess I’ve made? Can you void all my mistakes
Oh, I know that you aren’t safe, but you’ll follow this mess I’ve made

My brilliant scars, are all I need
Your canvas spills over my seams
Track Name: Sing Louder to Me
Your garden, was growing strong
But your petals fall
And this fierce storm, showers our blossoms
And removes them all

But we're waiting, waiting, slowly, slowly
We're waiting, we wait for this storm to cave
We're waiting, waiting, slowly, slowly
We're waiting, we wait, for the sunshine to break

Give me, just one of those
Famous glances
Makes me feel like your big green eyes
Can see far into me

And you're looking, looking farther, farther
You're looking, you look, far into me
You're looking, looking, farther, farther
You're looking, you look, far into me

Dance, in place as we count down
The numbers
This new year still, gives us new hope
Even through all our fears

But you're singing, singing, louder, louder
You're singing, you sing, your song to me
And you're singing, singing, higher, higher
You're singing, you sing, your song to me
Sing your song to me
Sing your song to me
