Track Name: And darkest white
from the fields that are burnt down
we came with nothing but seeds of hope
you drank the rain, the rain out of the clouds
and left a thousand with dry throats

we are the riot
we are the starving ones
we've kept quiet
now for far too long
we are the riot
we are the starving ones
we've kept quiet
now for far too long

this is a call to the dissatisfied
we are the riot
we are the starving ones
we've kept quiet
now for far too long
this is a call to the dissatisfied

from the moment we broke free
from these ties that were meant to keep
us where you'd watch, you'd watch our strains
we new the seeds would shoot up again
we are the riot
we are the starving ones
we've kept quiet
now for far too long
this is a call to the dissatisfied
Track Name: We seek ourselves
where is your hope now
did you lose it on your way down
will you find it back where you go
back where you go

now i'm on my back
and i've lost all feeling from my waist down
trying to forget
i'm trying to forget the day i jumped
cause my head was in the clouds
the world seemed easy
and its easy now
cause i'm trying to walk
i swear i'm trying to walk to find new hope
but i keep falling down

so where would you go
would you try to climb the way back (up) into the clouds
or would you start running towards sundown
chasing light and warmth that's not your own
you will stay right here
cause silence is the teacher that you need
your heart is full of hopeful words
but you've never heard it speak

learn to listen (learn to listen)
it speaks of hope
learn to listen (learn to listen)
and you will now
learn to listen (learn to listen)
it speaks of hope
learn to listen (learn to listen)
its with us wherever we go
learn to listen (learn to listen)
it speaks of hope
learn to listen (learn to listen)
and you will know

its in us, it guides us
its with us wherever we go
its in us, it guides us
so we don't have to be alone

don't move
lights out
Track Name: Afraid to find
if only we could
push our finger right through the glass
to reach the face of
the man that stares back at us
we feel nothing
a cold touch, consuming life
we keep watching
until he shuts his eyes
were still standing with our hand raised
with our fingertips on his face
take time, realize
that hes inside, that hes inside, hes inside

discover discover yourself

discover yourself, you've come to find help
but does he know what you need now
can he hear just a word that you shout out
these lips they move to still-born sound
his hands seek hold, as he breaks down
such a beautiful frame, such a beautiful frame
to decorate an image of shame

if only we could
push our finger right through the glass
to reach the face of
the man that stares back at us
we feel nothing
a cold touch, consuming life
we keep watching
until he shuts his eyes
Track Name: A starving man
thank god its bedtime
we try to rest, windows barred and eyes shut
dim the light, dim the light
now or never we beg sleep to find us
to the sound of our heartbeat
we watch pictures flicker on the back of our skin
colors swallow thoughts, swallow time
tucks us in tucks us in

the fever the fever the fever
burns its way right through our veins
follows us deeper
the fever the fever the fever

keeps us restless
colors swallow thoughts, swallow time
we wont find peace tonight
dim the light, dim the light, dim the light

will we awake in a better dream
or just the same sickening scenery
is it the suns morning-heat we feel
or just the fever ending our sleep

when slowly we open our eyes
we see we've never been outside
this door has been locked
though its missing its key
were still alive
but we forgot how to breath
Track Name: Out there
there is a place we know
it keeps treasures we demand
we made haste to come
but we've only come this far
we've been crying and screaming
fighting and dreaming
kissing the walls with our eyes
to see whats inside

we try to get in
but someones blocking the way
clenched fists that strike him
but we feel blood in our face

we try to get in
but someone's blocking the way
we will keep fighting
until we see
we are the warden
we are the warden
we are the warden
we face only ourselves, only ourselves

we are the hand that's pushing us back
we own the eye that's black from the fist we'll throw next
we are the battle
we are the ring
we are the battle
we are the ones watching

its time to give him hell
Track Name: Alone
whenever we feel like it, we will feel like shit
fighting the urge to resist it
we know we could be happier
more and more and more and more
the less we care
but its not who we are we not a afraid of the darkness
makes us feel that our heart has
not stopped beating yet
stopped beating yet
beating yet

we walk out of this light
hand our hearts to the night
we walk alleys we have never had the guts to walk before
between unease, fear and distress
there's no good without bad and boy
bad times are our fuel to hope again again and again
bravery is confidence's child
Track Name: Who needs a light
now we're in the water
on top of the tide
rising up to the walls
keeping the lost behind
boulders with the weight to persist
carried away by the flood
hold us as we reach for their grip
desperate to keep them up

open your eyes, the surface will reside
keep your head dry, your world has been drowned to be revived
you're not abandoned
just keep afloat
you're not abandoned
you're on the way back home

we know the waves will carry us home
we lie awake above a world we've known
we know the waves will carry us home
so keep your head dry, open your eyes now

we're not abandoned
we'll keep afloat
we're not abandoned
we're on our way back home
we're not abandoned
we'll keep afloat
we're not abandoned
we're going home we're going home

and as we're still kicking underwater
certain we forgot the sense of solid soil
this perception hits us out of nowhere
we see the ground, we feel it now
Track Name: Only to call it...
where is the ocean we were promised to see
where is the water they said would be sweet
who said its dreams that we need
and who said its worthless what we dream
we paint new worlds we never saw
we write lines unread before
sing melodies without sheets
can't we live life born from these dreams

cause our head can be the ocean
and we are the boat
set sails for new directions
nobody knows

and you say you know
and you've read those things about how they saw that someone heard
how it must be
oh it must feel like something
you're not sure

it's all worthless
all worthless you know
you're the vessel that has never felt water on its bow

it is dark out there, unexpected,
and yet somehow familiar
the water is only as deep as our wishes
and the boat only as strong as our will
we choose the kind of our travel
knowing that discoverers discover
after all landmarks got out of sight

we are the ocean we were promised to see
we are the water we will drink cause its sweet
we know we know it is dreams that we need
its all worthless its all worthless
if you have never dreamed
Track Name: Home
we're out on a boat
only to call it home
far out in the cold
burning its pieces
