Track Name: 6 Years of Serenity
Can’t you see the ashes on the floor
from all the times we’ve tried to burn before
can’t you smell the sulfur in the air
from the countless matches lit I swear
That only a few really cared about us
and tried to fan our flame before the fire got lost
So one last time we’ll try to burn like the sun
incinerate everything that we’ve begun…
Track Name: The Rushour Reliance
Could someone tell me why
my live keeps moving faster
like a terrifying deathride
that never seems to end
Could someone please remind me
exactly who I am
cus I just might have left it
I just might have lost it
on the fast lane,
rushing through my mind
And it seems by every second
I’m bound to travel further
away from that what saves me
and wherever I’m right now (2x)
So I scream for you to save me
but the message get’s distorted
I scream for you to push the breaks
but the gears are shifting up
Could someone tell me why
my live keeps moving faster
like a terrifying deathride
that never seems to end (2x)
Could someone please remind me
exactly who I am
cus I just might have left it
I just might have lost it
on the fast lane,
rushing through my mind
Could someone tell me why
my live keeps moving faster
Could someone tell me why
my live keeps moving faster
Could someone tell me why
Track Name: A Life in Ruins
I've watched the ravens gather 'round
around the ruins of a life once lived in peace
but now reduced to nothing more than humiliation
(and) They paint the sky into the deepest shade of black
'till your day turns into night!

The way I see it there is only one way back to live
remove this blindfold from your eyes
(look at the sky) and strip this joy from it's disguise
(reject denial) embrace the truth instead of lies

how long just will it take for you to realise
that even when you're body walks
you mind's Pinned to the ground
taste the dirt, you're down and out
when lifes reduced to only doubt

and what's there to loose when all is lost
any shot in the dark is just a futile cost
an efford given to heal the damage done
a small price return to where we've begun
Track Name: Burning Bridges
No matter what we do
we got no place to hide
we looked but we couldn’t find
No matter what we do
we got no place to hide
so look beyond your pride
and make us both survive
I don’t want to fight
I don’t want to die
just want to stay here by your side
before this fire hits the tide
and leaves me all alone
Now the fire rages on
the fire rages through my heart
destroying every dream
destroying every memory
we ever shared
Now the fire rages on
Only the ashes remain
and as I open my eyes
your blurry figure fades away
never to be seen here ever again

Let’s burn this bridge tonight
and light the sky
Let’s burn this bridge tonight
and light the sky
Only the ashes remain
and as I open my eyes
your blurry figure fades away
never to be seen here ever again
Track Name: Don't Paint me in and Ugly Picture
You’ve got us pressed with our backs against the wall
ain’t this madness? Ain’t this wrong? Ain’t it wrong!
when every disrespect was rejected or condemned
So your disbelieves and misjudgement strike us hard, in our hearts
You’ve got to come to terms with your own self and realize, ain’t it hard
You victimize!
And we’re no different, unless you’re acting like you are
Why this efford? Why this war? Why this war!
and your aching heart is filled with discontent
Your heart is filled with discontent
the only shadow that falls over you is your own
Nothing tastes worse, nothing tastes worse then the bitterness of contempt
And nothing feels, nothing feels better then looking past our differences
Track Name: The burden of a new Generation
A new day has just begun
while we waited for you, for your arrival, your first smile
while we waited for your eyes to face the sky

So small and fragile, so unaware
so helpless and demanding in a world that needs to change

Right now take my hand I’ll lead the waaaaaaaaay (lang)
you could learn the world a different way.
Right now take my hand this world needs chaaaaaaange.
It’s not to laaaaaate for changing lanes.


The voice of a new generation
Changing ideals
ideals that last forever
stand strong for countless days
Take note from our wasted efforts
Learn from our fails
stand tall in a world that’s full of
lives all(ready) lived in vain
