Iron Lung 05:08
You and I were meant as one Across jet trails, we’d gone through hell The laughs and tears, late-night goodbyes In the end, our journey void We had a plan to make things work But then I jerked you all around My selfish whim, one-note desire The weight I carry out with me Is this my Iron Lung? Is this my Iron Lung? Is this my Iron Lung? Is this my Iron Lung? Now step forth and claim your prize The hammer falls on days gone by A better place for you instead split apart by my denial I can’t forget the things I said Twist your words and tear you down I hope each day that you can heal My stone to bear and carry on Is this my Iron Lung? Is this my Iron Lung? Is this my Iron Lung? Is this my Iron Lung? I’d like to hear this story to the fullest. Only the infinities of the depths of a man’s mind… …can really tell this story. It’s so hard to believe. It’s not really hard to believe – It’s just hard for you to accept! This is my Iron Lung This is my Iron Lung This is my Iron Lung This is my Iron Lung

We are the kids who have been out all night. We are the kids who drove all night. We are the kids who rebelled all night. We are the kids who drove all night. And you'll never see me again.

Calling from a distance I hear your voice again All the signs are pointing to What I don’t understand Are you now the kiss of life hiding in the dark Cause every time I’ve reached alone Feels like I’m missing every mark I’ll take a chance tonight Another roll of the dice I can’t lose with you… High… But you’re falling like the rain Blinded by illusion, but you do it all over again High… You know it’s just a game Not looking for forever Just a chance to start again They say I’m out of action Losing all control I’m keeping count of every move In a city I call home You never gave a warning Like an arrow tears the sky Bring me to my senses cause tomorrows open wide I feel more alive than I ever did in time I can’t lose with you High… But you’re falling like the rain Blinded by illusion, but you do it all over again High… You know it’s just a game Not looking for forever I just wanna start over again

I think I’m losing it Do we feel like we’re alive? The city’s motion after dark Wraps around me at the drop off No need to rush No need to keep it on Move your legs to the rising sun No need to speak No need to sound it out Laugh it off, hands off the wheel Lose control And don’t interrupt the flow tonight Cruise control Makes us feel like we are close to light I think I’m losing it Or is this what the edge feels like The subway car after dark Shakes us awake in the nick of time No need to rush No need to keep it on Move your hips to kick drum’s song No need to speak No need to sound it out Laugh it off, hands off the wheel Lose control 3 2 1 Go! Lose control And don’t interrupt the flow tonight Cruise control Makes us feel like we are close to light Lose control And don’t interrupt the flow tonight Cruise control Makes us feel like we are close to light

You & I 04:41
Summer days were golden. Weeks were full of nothing but fantasy, Chocolate cake and video games. Our future promised possibilities. Can we just go back to a bygone year, those carefree times? Forget what we know, forget hardship, When life was kind. Drawing unknown worlds, pure creations, Straight from our minds. Even if you break, I won’t let it take us down, you and I. Now we’ve split apart, Nothing seems to be completely fair. Hope you know no one meant you harm, Just remember me and all of us who care.

I want to lay down in a field at night blocking out the whole world I want to know what your love feels like with your arms unfurled. (We were supposed to be one) Maybe for the last time (We were supposed to be one) I saw a smile on your face (We were supposed to be one) Maybe there's no better time (We were supposed to be one) or place I want to lay down in a field at night blocking out the whole world I want to know what your love feels like with your arms unfurled But wait, I saw a light all alone there it shines so bright out the window But wait, I saw a light all alone there it glows so bright out this window I want to lay down in a field at night blocking out the whole world I want to know what your love feels like with your arms unfurled I'm wait, I'm waiting for you only I'm waiting now

V1: Oh my friend, I just heard the news Oh my friend, what got in to you? And I’m heartbroken, oh I’m heartbroken Oh my friend did I know you? I wanna know, what got into you I wanna know, what you gave into Chorus: All I know my friend Is that you had it all My friend I guess I did not really know you well Or know you deep enough To be a friend to talk to Grab your friends and family Tell them how you really feel Tell them what is going on Tell them what is going on V2: Oh my friend, this long journey home To say farewell, one final time You know there is no heaven for me So I’ll never go And we’ll never meet So I’ll never know I’ll never know what got into you I’ll never know what you gave into Chorus: All I know my friend Is that you had it all My friend I guess I did not really know you well Or know you deep enough To be a friend to talk to Grab your friends and family Tell them how you really feel Tell them what is going on Tell them what is going on Nightmare…

Dive in Breathe out Falling up Or is it down? Don't be afraid now Don't be afraid To let yourself be torn So you can become reborn Recognize just where you are Floating among the stars If you could feel your weight in lies That you've been told throughout your life You'd be too heavy for the hole That's guiding you home And through the dark, you'll find the light As long as you come out the other side Alive

Looking back, going over chapter one of the story, when do we wanna turn the page? Moments in time, that are frozen forever, each one a missing puzzle piece But there is one we cannot find We can’t seem to sit back and have the conversation, afraid of what happens next Behind old walls and a dented suit of armour, the dice are too heavy to roll Stay away from the water's edge Run away into the night (Fire) The flames begin to flicker round December Rose They said it would burn to ash (Fire) The smoke, it starts to spiral out of our control We can’t see through the dust (Fire) Horizons disappear, oh lately, when the sun goes down, It used to burn so bright Straighten up when you see the door gets pushed wide open, don’t let the tears fall in front of me I’m looking up with open arms, in a darkened room looking for clues Now there's the smile you use for me (Fire) The flames begin to flicker round December Rose They said it would burn to ash (Fire) The smoke, it starts to spiral out of our control We can’t see through the dust (Fire) Horizons disappear oh lately when the sun goes down, It used to burn so bright I know we didn't make it already just like yesterday Here comes the final test I Fade Away

"Some of the most comforting words in the universe are 'me too.' That moment when you find out that your struggle is also someone else's struggle, that you’re not alone, and that others have been down the same road." - Unknown
