Alive and Well
now's the time
to rearrange your life
live for something
outside of your own mind
we all dream
the same dream everynight
to burn the world that you call civilized


alive and well
i live to be alive
i live to always strive
for something more
alive and well
i'll never understand
the who, what, why or when
of you tonight...


we face the stares of judgement
and almost everyday
the shaking heads
of disapproval say,
"pray for you to give me something then find out that there was nothing left."

recite the words inside (your heart)
realize that this is nothing
without your voice
im not giving up
and ill blame the worst on you
i know whats wrong
alive and well
i live to be alive
i live to always strive
for something more
alive and well
nothing ventured, nothing gained
and I dont need to explain
myself to you.back to top
My Life Inside Your Heart
www.laddenfinch.cjb.net


fighting back the impulse
turn my head and close my eyes
spending these nights awake and cold and paralyzed
wonder how we got this far and
never realized the common thread that binds our lives
and I know you hurt
but I can help you if you can...
take my hand
and we'll live inside the dreams we left behind
take my hand
as we move from this place to a better life
take my hand
(if you take my hand)
fighting back the feeling that you always could deny
anything but everything we know is just a lie
as I cremate this memory and watch the darkened ashes rise
and beneath the smoke
I'll stand and ask you if you can
take my hand
and I'll promise not to ever let it go
take my hand
'cause this hope is greater than you'll ever know
(take my hand)
and this is all I'll ever ask of you to show
fight back the urges
turn my head and close my eyes
and will I wake tomorrow still alive
I'm still dreaming
I'm still waiting
I'm still sure
(I'm still sure)
you're still living in a life
that isn't yours
(that isn't yours)
and this is part of me
I hope you never see
this is my life inside your heart
take my hand
and I'll promise not to ever let it go
take my hand
'cause this hope is greater than you'll ever know
(take my hand)
and this is all I'll ever ask of you to showback to top
Great Awakening
www.laddenfinch.cjb.net


buried words
under lights
soundtrack to this stagnant life
this meaning lost in translation
message sucked out of his hands again
this could be my great awakening
but how would I know
cuz it's all noise to me
are these words falling on deaf ears?
staring at the empty stares
realize that he no longer cares
about the wrong or right
the downward spiral begins tonight
and this could be my great awakening
but how would I know cuz it's all noise to me
are these words falling on deaf ears?
this could be my great awakening
but how would I know cuz it's all noise to me
(nothing I can do will make you hear)back to top
Six Ways 'Till Sunday
the years unfold in one moment
the voices that we heard so loud
are now suddenly silenced
inside this crowd

and you're surrounded by the lives
of those who found something to hold
so bringing everybody down
is all you know

you've been hiding so long
you can't find yourself
in this sheltered life you live
when everything you want is at your fingertips
you'll never know what need is

you're claiming to be something different
so wanting to believe
that you're better than the rest
to make up for your self-esteem
you talk to hear your own voice and
you've left me no choice but to choose
I miss the person that you were
but I don't miss you

you've been hiding so long
you can't find yourself
in this sheltered life you live
when everything you want is at your fingertips
you'll never know what need is

you're the new revolution
the angst-filled adolescent
you fit the stereotype well

1, 2, 3, Go!

you're the new revolution
the angst-filled adolescent
you fit the stereotype well

401 Kill
www.laddenfinch.cjb.net


as I watch your life go up in flames
you'll swear up and down you'd like to change
but when the sun sinks slowly into the sky
now you're right where you started again
with nothing to say
without an argument or case
and when it's said and done
and done and said
and now what's another day?
I can feel these changes right before my eyes
I see a dying fire inside your eyes
when will you stop and realize the worth and value of your life?
as you suffocate yourself within this mindless 9-5
wake up!
there's more!
and your life is nobody's but yours
and now itís said and done
and done and said
and now what's another day?
you're running circles around my slow pace
you've reached the finish line
only to realize there was no race
I'm sick of being stepped on for the things I choose
I give and take and now I've taken all I couldback to top
The Art of Losing
www.laddenfinch.cjb.net


I'm not fucking blind to the way
that you talk around the truth
not just what you say
but what you do
played this tug of war way too fucking long
like every time
again I've lost
you've won
you took advantage of the trust that I gave
took my forgiveness
rubbed it back in my face
reaching for words but there's nothing to say
I'm left to wonder
will this ever be the same
this rage burning through my veins
regret consumes my mind
cutting deeply like a razor blade
will I live to see another day
without questioning your motives
with constant doubt
you took advantage of the trust that I gave
took my forgiveness
rubbed it back in my face
reaching for words
but there's nothing to say
I'm left to wonder will this ever be the same
and as we sit back waiting
for these scars to heal
try to convince ourselves that this
that this isn't real
will you allow me forget your past
or will you always hang it over my headback to top
Remains of Summer Memories
www.laddenfinch.cjb.net


all these days
I'll forever cherish
in the confines of my heart
the faces of ten years ago
like fingerprints on my heart
how can I breathe
when fear chokes my every breath?
how can I balance
six inches from death?
now the momentum we've created
comes to a screeching halt
this angel comes crashing down
on her hands and knees she crawls
how can I breathe
when fear chokes my every breath?
how many of your lies
will I be fed?
the remains of summer memories
spent so far away
free from the fear or jealousy
that plagues our lives today
now that promises we're broken
enemies were made
we spend our precious time pointing fingers
trying to place the blame
the remains of what's left
of our past of a future yet to come
of the battles that we've lost
and the fights that we have wonback to top
Reception Fades
www.laddenfinch.cjb.net


you talk about the way things were
but I canít hear what you're saying
a time when life was not this hard
blessed by the innocence
is the best yet to come?
or did it pass by long ago?
are we holding on to a thread
of something already dead?
Iím not your reason to stand up straight
shoulders back chest out and eyes raised
stepping back
I hesitate
I can't let myself be taken
the reception fades the signals breaking up
and am I moving on or am I giving up?
If you walk away from this with anything
live your life todayback to top
Stained Glass and Marble
www.laddenfinch.cjb.net

come warm your hands on hellfire and brimstone
empty the pockets of the innocent victim
bound by fear we misplace trust
in your voice
inside these walls
convincing us we have no choice
gaze upon these stare of naivetť
two thousand years replaced
with eighteen inches of our faith
bound by fear
we misplace trust
in your voice
inside these walls
convincing us we have no choice
and this reflection
on where the message lies
stained glass and marble
or somewhere deep inside
(somewhere deep inside)
this message you will only find deep inside
to read these words
you keep looking down
but in the sky
this message is written in the cloudsback to top
Everchanging
www.laddenfinch.cjb.net


in the face of change
is when she turned to me and said
"i'm not sure anymore..."
and there amidst the waves
and the cloudless skies
that blanket the year before
i watch my life wash ashore
have you ever been a part of something
that you thought would never end?
and then of course it did
have you ever felt the weight inside you
pulling away inside your skin?
and then something had to give
now the lines are drawn
is this feeling gone?
the best parts of this have come and gone
and now that is all this is
with the reasons clear
we'll spend another year
without direction
full of fear
but now things will be different
there's nothing simple when it comes to you and I
always something in this everchanging life
and it probably always will
now that time is getting harder to come by
the same arguments are always on our mind
we've killed this slowly fading light
now something has kept me here too long
and you can't leave me if i'm already gone
make the same mistakes we're always hanging on
break the promises we're always leaning on
all this time spent waking up
now i keep this line open to get this call from you
as you speak the words that keep me coming back
to you now this time it's all different
now something has kept me here too long
and now i'm goneÖback to top
Sometimes Selling Out Is Giving Up
www.laddenfinch.cjb.net


trying to make a difference
but where the fuck did you go wrong?
lying to all the names and faces
that have been there all along
how can you ask me to just forget?
all the sick lines
and the words you said
how can you ask me to just forget?
deny the promises you've made
the things you said
that you hold dear
behind your empty words
you hide and wait
until that you fall in the clear
how can you ask me to just forget?
all the sick lines
and the words you said
how can you ask me to just forget?
just don't ask me to just forgetback to top
3 Day Weekend
www.laddenfinch.cjb.net


aside from the name that holds us together
now I think we'd fall apart
it's the years we'll pretend we've forgotten
that separate our hearts
and I don't remember the way this was
but the pictures prove I knew you once
and where is the source of our mistakes
I'm afraid one day we'll drift so far
we'll wake up not knowing where we are
these words accomplish nothing if I'm goneback to top
1000 Good Intentions
It's all the same thing now
That it ever was
Except now you've strayed too far
Need you to stop digging your hole
And follow the path we light.

Don't need an invitation to be reconciled
'cause these home fires are burning
Stare into your empty eyes and wonder...
How could something so right
(woo-ooh)turn out so wrong?
You spent your time making excuse
For the ways of life that you are choosing
How could something so right
(woo-ooh)turn out so wrong?
Not sure exactly where I am

The more we organize
We suck out this life
That serves as the fuel behind
You wanna take the passion in my veins
And put it down in black & white

You've got your foot directly on the gas
I watch you burn out so fast
Now I can see just what you've become
And how could something so right
(woo-ooh)turn out so wrong?
I don't have a backup plan
This is all that I am
And how could something so right
(woo-ooh)turn out so wrong?
Not sure exactly where I am.

ONE! One thousand
GOOD! Intentions
LOST! Translation
LOST! Forever

ONE! One thousand
GOOD! Intentions
LOST! Translation
LOST! Forever lost

And how could something so right
(woo-ooh)turn out so wrong?
I don't have a backup plan
This is all that I am
And how could something so right
(woo-ooh)turn out so wrong?
Not sure exactly where I am
Where I am.back to top
Weight of Time
www.laddenfinch.cjb.net


speak with hesitation
talk with reservation
blood on your hands
dried long since
but guilt still glowing in your eyes
you hide behind
(and now this blood has long since dried)
your perfect crime
(guilt still glowing in your eyes)
never ask why you try
now I've watched you stack
the mistakes you've made
on top of the lies to hide them
your excuses just don't add up
empty handed we all wonder
why you hide behind
(and now this blood has long since dried)
your perfect crime
(guilt still glowing in your eyes)
never ask why you try
now I know that your words
your actions
intentions
all were lies
your heart grows heavier with time
(and now this blood has long since dried!)
have I said enough
have I said too much
is it your responsibility to decide
you're heart grows heavier with time
(I will decide!)
and I fell victim to the changing tide
and this blood has long since dried
this blood has long since driedback to top
