Obscurity 04:00
EVERYONE Here we are now This is our town This is the night life This is our time CILLIAN I never know I never see The safest path In front of me I tried to show What I could be I’ve always feared Obscurity EVERYONE Shadows crawl now Death comes for you all Here we are now This is our town This is the night life This is our time CILLIAN I walk along This lonely street Is this the path Where I am free I want to know I want to see Will they laugh At my obscurity
2.
Away 03:39
CILLIAN Well at last I’m here Made it on my own To the glittering streets Far away from home Well at last I’m here Get my name in the lights All along these streets Far away I’m alive EVERYONE I guess I’m far away From the boring life Where all my friends sat around They sat around at night CILLIAN Well at last I’m here Time to make it my own Walk the glittering streets Far away from home Well at last I’m here Fame is in my grasp On these busy streets Far away from the past EVERYONE I guess I’m far away From a wasted life Where all my dreams waited They waited there to die

Ways 03:22
ANYA I heard you walkin In the street You’ve got a lot to see The night is shakin The drinks are waitin So come on take your seat Don’t stop waitin up You gotta come in from the heat now I heard you talkin In the grapevine You got a lot to say The night is young now And we’re just startin You really gotta stay Don’t stop waitin up You gotta come in from the heat now The way down in your heart Way down in your soul The way down in your heart You’re gonna lose control I heard you walkin In the street You got a lot to see The night is shakin The drinks are waitin So come on take your seat Don’t stop waitin up You gotta come in from the heat now The way down in your heart Way down in your soul The way down in your heart You’re gonna lose control

5.
Prey 06:30
PRESTON I don’t know how to live and breathe I don’t know if I can ever leave Can you see my empty shell And understand what’s me? Living in this gilded cell And longing to be free Heavy hangs the crown I wear Responsibility Catering to all your cares For all eternity I don’t know how to live and breathe I don’t know if I can ever leave EVERYONE I don’t know how to face the day When everyone I meet is prey PRESTON Time for you to pledge your souls And drop down to your knees I demand obedience It’s all I ever need Each of you can be yourselves That’s why I have to lead I’ve committed countless crimes To save your right to feed EVERYONE I don’t know how to face the day When everyone I meet is prey
6.
Problem 05:16
PRESTON You think it’s easy doing what I do. I don’t stand around hoping you Approve of all the blood I have to spill to keep all we built from crashing down Around us all Every night I’m the one who fights ANYA You’ve got it bad, I’ve got it worse I feel the pain of everyone you hurt Take it back. It’s what you deserve (CHORUS) ANYA & PRESTON You’ve got a problem you think I’m unfair You can’t work this out well I don’t think you really care You made a promise this just isn’t fair We can’t work this out and I don’t think I really care PRESTON You whine about what I’ve had to be but Have you ever thought what it means to Me and what I lost in this endless life Cleaning up all your little lies ANYA Really now? What makes you think that I’ve ever been other than I am? Take it back I won’t ask again CHORUS CILLIAN He thinks its easy holding on to love that she’ll stick around no matter what he’s done To her or all the other ones he’s just another man holding on too long she’s gotta go… I’ll make her understand PRESTON You walk away like all the other times but you have to know I’m sick of all your lies About your precious little innocence that’s just a cheap facade You’ll always be another broken fraud ANYA You can talk. You think you’re some kinda Big shot man among your lowly thralls That’s the lie. It’s time you make it right
7.
Understand 04:00
ANYA This is not what you think This is not what you know I’m alive, a living muse There’s nothing else to show CILLIAN You don’t understand ANYA You can’t understand CILLIAN You don’t understand ANYA He’d rather be damned CILLIAN You don’t have to stay ANYA You can’t be here today CILLIAN You don’t have to stay ANYA There is no other way CILLIAN You’re lost but you’re right in front of me You can’t survive on your own You’re lost but you’re right in front of me You can’t survive all alone ANYA This is not your place This is not your home I’m not free to make a choice There’s no where I can go
8.
Fall 05:00
CILLIAN I walk alone in the dead of night There’s something wrong, I don’t know what’s right A chill wind bites to the bone The streets are empty yet I’m not alone JEAN Take him now It’s only life A quick pinch and you close his eyes Move fast we’re all alone Let him bleed on the frozen stone CILLIAN Hey you there can you hear me? Hey you there What’s your story? There’s someone there I can hear their breath It sounds like fire and impending death A chill wind bites to the bone These streets are empty yet I’m not alone JEAN Take him now Don’t be afraid It’s his own fault he should not have stayed Strike now we’ve gotta go Make it fast no one will ever know CILLIAN Hey you there can you hear me? Hey you there What’s your story? JEAN Why’d you bite him? You had to know We can’t leave him on the side of the road Grab his legs I think I know a place Where we can dump him without a trace CILLIAN I’m lying down in the frozen mud There’s nothing left but the taste of blood Weightless dreams I can’t recall The world goes dark as I start to fall
9.
Control 04:16
CILLIAN I’m lost is this the afterlife? I’m awake and on my own This thirst is pain it’s starting in my brain It’s going down into my bones Filthy walls they seem to ooze and crawl They fill my mind and soul with dread The moon is high it’s bringing down the light On the bodies of the dead EVERYONE Oh, I never thought I’d know What it’s like to lose control Oh, I never want to know What it takes to feed my soul CILLIAN Time to climb Before I lose my mind I gotta find someone I know Claw and scrape until my nails break Until the filth is in my soul. I stand upright I’m not quite alive But someone dropped me down that hole My body aches questions will have to wait There’s something clawing at my soul
10.
Forgive 02:58
CILLIAN This is not me Not how I want to live This is not me Doing what I can’t forgive This is not me Not how I want to live This is not me Doing what I can’t forgive Every day every night everything falls apart Everywhere every bite everyone seems to hurt Every prayer every night every place I could hide Every day every night everyone seems to die This is not me Not how I want to live This is not me Doing what I can’t forgive Oh what I’d give to be what I used to be Oh what I’d give to be something pure and free AVERY Every day every night everything comes alive Every nerve every sense everything you thought died Every day every night every year every time Every plan every goal every single thing you know
11.
Undead 04:56
AVERY There’s a line of saviors up and down the street There’s a sign of danger in everyone you meet Everyone here has something to sell They’re peddling heaven but send you to hell Take it from me you caught a big break Anything you want now you just take This is not the end it’s just what you need Living on and on you’re finally free Grab at this chance and make it your own Be the next thing and let your fear go EVERYONE Voiceless Mislead Never been alive until I was undead Hopeless In Dread Never was alive until I was undead AVERY There’s a line of sinners everywhere you go There’s a line of haters in everything you know Everyone here can bring you right down If you don’t fight to keep above ground Take it from me you gotta be smart Gotta own the space to make your own mark AVERY There’s a line of saviors everywhere you go There’s a false messiah in every lie they told Now that you know what you and I have Pick yourself up and do what you can All your hopes and dreams can become true As long as you feed, you can be you

Reach 05:13
13.
Alive 08:06
CILLIAN When the darkness fell I tried to stay Thought I heard your voice swore I saw your face Never thought I’d be the same I could never live this way Not without you in my life When I’m with you I survived Come on take a chance with me you don’t need him we’ll be free You don’t have to sacrifice all the things you hide inside You don’t have to be alone ANYA You don’t know what he will do to me You can go but this is where I’ll be You don’t know what all he’s done for me You can go but this is where I’ll be You don’t know what he can do to me EVERYONE You make me feel like I’m alive Look in my eyes you’ll know I’m right Come down from there and be with me He’s coming to make us bleed You make me feel like I survived Look in my eyes you’ll see a light He’s lost his grip on you and me He won’t quit until we bleed. CILLIAN Never thought I’d be the same I could never live this way Not without you in my life When I’m with you I’m alive ANYA You don’t know but this is what you see A lost girl waiting to be free But you don’t know what this means to me I won’t go cause this is where I’ll be
14.
Eternity 06:46
PRESTON I know what it is you’re thinking I had to live with my share of lies I know what it is you’re wishing I feel the same when I decide who dies PRESTON You think you know the truth Well you don’t There isn’t a villain for you to blame You think this is black and white Well, it’s all gray You’ve taken a role in our long dark play EVERYONE Everyday and every night We play a game called eternal life Countless nights an endless dream Forever more this is eternity ANYA I know what it is you’re thinking I tried like hell to make it alright I know what it is you’re wishing I never wanted this for your life CILLIAN I don’t know what you’re all thinking This place was built on a bed of lies I don’t know what you’ve been doing You’ve taken countless dreams and more lives
15.
Reality 05:12
CILLIAN The city called to me. It offered everything I fell into its trap and there’s no turning back The lights have flickered out creating fear and doubt You say it lingers on but then it ends at dawn ANYA You think this isn’t fair you think that I don’t care But I’ve been through it too and here I am with you I wish you understood I doubt you ever could It’s time to play the game you’ll never be the same EVERYONE All the lost minds locked in a dream This is not my reality All the lost lives get in the way When everyone turns into prey CILLIAN I fought to save myself I thought that you could help But then you lied to me I can’t trust anything I fell in love with you I thought you knew it too But this is just a game you never felt the same ANYA I’ve seen a thousand lives I’ve heard them die You think you’ve got it bad you’ll never understand I see inside your soul you struggle for control You think that I’m to blame for every single thing
16.
Unafraid 05:29
CILLIAN I built a life I thought I was free But now I can never leave I built a life of tragedy but now I have eternity EVERYONE What’re you waiting for? What do you pray for? What’ve we done to you? There’s no one to run to What’re you crying for? This is what you begged for What’ve we done to you? There’s no one to run to CILLIAN I’ve made it work I thought this was me But now I’ve always gotta feed I left my life I chased a dream But now I’m just a craven thing EVERYONE All alone unafraid In the crowd I never fade away All alone unafraid In the crowd, I always see your face CILLIAN Built a life I thought I was free But not as a celebrity I made it work I got my dream but not without impurity I built a life for you and for me But now I’m just a lonely thing This bitter sweet success story Has robbed me of my victory EVERYONE All alone, unafraid In the crowd I never fade away All alone unafraid In the crowd, they always look the same
