Price to Play
Fail to see how destructive we can be
Taking without giving back til the damage can be seen
Can you see? Can you see?

The more you take, the more you blame
But everything still feels the same
The more you hurt the more you scream
The price you pay to play the game
Then all you see and all you gave
And all you step on will know shame
There are no rules, no one to blame
The price to play the game

Empathy, the chosen way to be
Blindly look the other way
While you waste away with me
Can you see? Can you see?

The more you take, the more you blame
But everything still feels the same
The more you hurt, the more you scream
The price you pay to play the game
Then all you see and all you gave
And all you step on will know shame
There are no rules, no one to blame
The price to play the game

What you pay to play the game
What you pay to play the game
What you pay to play the game
What you pay to play the game

The more you take, the more you blame
But everything still feels the same
The more you hurt, the more you scream
The price you pay to play the game
Then all you see and all you gave
And all you step on will know shame
There are no rules, no one to blame
The price to play the game

What you pay to play the game
What you pay to play the game
What you pay to play the game
What you pay to play the gameback to top
How About You
If someone else showed you the way,
would you take the wheel and steer?
It hurts me that you're not ashamed,
of what you're doing here.
If they jumped off a bridge,
would you meet them on the ground?
Or would try to claim,
that it never made a sound?

Everyone plays the hand they're dealt.
And learns to walk through life themselves.
Not everything in life is,
handed on a plate.
When people think your words are true,
it doesn't matter what you do.
I sold my soul to get here.
How about you?

So you choose to force your hand.
What a strange way to make friends.
Have you always changed the rules,
so the drama never ends?
And you blindly go through life,
judging only by its worth.
Just try not to forget,
that the meek inherit earth.

Everyone plays the hand they're dealt.
And learns to walk through life themselves.
Not everything in life is,
handed on a plate.
When people think your words are true,
it doesn't matter what you do.
I sold my soul to get here.
How about you?

So please don't take offense;
this is just a point of view.
'Cause I'm the only one who will say
these things to you.

Everyone plays the hand they're dealt.
And learns to walk through life themselves.
Not everything in life is,
handed on a plate.
When people think your words are true,
it doesn't matter what you do.
I sold my soul to get here.
How about you?back to top
So Far Away
This is my life.
It's not what it was before.
All these feelings I've shared.
And these are my dreams,
that I've never lived before.
Somebody shake me 'cause I,
I must be sleeping.

Now that we're here,
it's so far away.
All the troubles we thought was in vain.
And and the mistakes,
one life contained;
they all finally start to go away.
Now that we're here,
it's so far away.
And I feel like I can face the day.
And I can't believe,
that I'm not ashamed
to be the person that I am today.

These are my words,
that I've never said before.
I think I'm doing OK.
And this is the smile,
that I've never shown before.
Somebody shake me 'cause I,
I must be sleeping.

Now that we're here,
it's so far away.
All the troubles we thought was in vain.
And and the mistakes,
one life contained;
they all finally start to go away.
Now that we're here,
it's so far away.
And I feel like I can face the day.
And I can't believe,
that I'm not ashamed
to be the person that I am today.

I'm so afraid of waking.
Please don't shake me.
Afraid of waking.
Please don't shake me.

Now that we're here,
it's so far away.
All the troubles we thought was in vain.
And and the mistakes,
one life contained;
they all finally start to go away.
Now that we're here,
it's so far away.
And I feel like I can face the day.
And I can't believe,
that I'm not ashamed
to be the person that I am today.back to top
Yesterday
14 Shades of Grey

You don't know
What you've put me through
It's okay
I've forgiven you
But in some way
Hope it fucks with you
Hope it fucks with you

That I'm okay
And I've made it through
But who's to say
What you're going through
I'll say no names
Though I've wanted to
Isn't it strange
How it seems like

Yesterday
A boy and already afraid
Locked deep inside
My place to hide
To hide from how you made me feel
And I wonder
How's your brother
Did he end up fucked up like me
Lost in himself
Crying for help
It's safe to say

I learned to
Live without a pride
Just a shell
With me stuck inside
A prison
Not a place to hide
Not a place to hide

That I'm okay
And I've made it through
But who's to say
What you're going through
I'll say no names
Though I've wanted to
Isn't it strange
How it seems like

Yesterday
A boy and already afraid
Locked deep inside
My place to hide
To hide from how you made me feel
And I wonder
How's your brother
Did he end up fucked up like me
Lost in himself
Crying for help
It's safe to say

Yesterday
A boy and already afraid
Locked deep inside
My place to hide
To hide from how you made me feel
And I wonder
How's your brother
Did he finally pull through like me
Finding himself
Not needing help
I'd like to sayback to top
Fray
14 Shades of Gray

I know
That it never goes away
All I feel
Everything I'm not today
So I try and I try
To make everything right
I don't feel like I'm doing it
It affects me

You wouldn't listen even if I told you
Who the fuck am I to say
You're to busy with the lies they sold you
Another cure to fix your day
Open wide for all the shit they feed you
While the TV defecates
And blindly walk wherever they will lead you
While the edges slowly fray

I know
That everything can change
What I need
Ts to open up again
So never again
Will I look back in vain
Cause today's not the past
I don't need to relive it

You wouldn't listen even if I told you
Who the fuck am I to say
You're to busy with the lies they sold you
Another cure to fix your day
Open wide for all the shit they feed you
While the TV defecates
And blindly walk wherever they will lead you
While the edges slowly fray

Are you satisfied
I've given all I can
And are you pacified
Or do you want more from me

You wouldn't listen even if I told you
Who the fuck am I to say
You're to busy with the lies they sold you
Another cure to fix your day
Open wide for all the shit they feed you
While the TV defecates
And blindly walk wherever they will lead you
While the edges slowly fray

I've learned
That this life's not just a game
Just a line
Between the pleasures and the pain

You wouldn't listen even if I told you
Who the fuck am I to say
You're to busy with the lies they sold you
Another cure to fix your day
Open wide for all the shit they feed you
While the TV defecates
And blindly walk wherever they will lead you
While the edges slowly frayback to top
Zoe Jane
14 Shades of Grey

Well I want you to notice
To notice when I'm not around
And I know that your eyes see straight through me
And speak to me without a sound

I want to hold you
Protect you from all of the things I've already endured
And I want to show you
To show you all of the things that this life has in store for you
I'll always love you
The way that a father should love his daughter

When I walked out this morning
I cried as I walked to the door
I cried about how long I'd be away for
I cried about leaving you all alone

I want to hold you
Protect you from all of the things I've already endured
And I want to show you
To show you all of the things that this life has in store for you
I'll always love you
The way that a father should love his daughter

Sweet Zoe Jane
Sweet Zoe Jane

So I wanted to say this
Cause I wouldn't know where to begin
To explain to you what I have been through
To explain where your daddy has been

So I want to hold you
Protect you from all of the things I've already endured
And I want to show you
To show you all of the things that this life has in store for you
I'll always love you
The way that a father should love his daughter

Fill Me Up
I just had to let you know.
'Cause I don't always let it show.
You give me needed room to grow.
And I just had to tell you so.

You fill me up.
You're in my veins.
A look could take my breath away.
And all these things,
you give away;
sometimes I take for granted.

It's just like poetry inside,
to hear you breathing by my side.
Like I'm in heaven and I've died.
So glad you're with me for this ride.

You fill me up.
You're in my veins.
A look could take my breath away.
And all these things,
you give away;
sometimes I take for granted.

I see your face to start my day.
It makes all my bad dreams go away.
And all the stupid games we play;
wouldn't have it any other way.

You fill me up.
You're in my veins.
A look could take my breath away.
And all these things,
you give away;
sometimes I take for granted.

You fill me up.
You're in my veins.
A look could take my breath away.
And all these things,

Layne
I heard today that you were gone.
I had to stop and sing along
the song they played to say goodbye.
A song that gave,
it gave me back life.

You'll never fade.
The words you gave.
My life you saved.
Your name was Layne.

And on that day a child was born.
To someone who you helped along.
And helped see through his darkest times.
Because of you,
this child she is mine.

You'll never fade.
The words you gave.
My life you saved.
Your name was Layne.

The words you said,
you made me feel like they were all for me.
The words you said,
they will always be a part of me.
The words you said,
you made me feel like I was not alone.
The words you said,
you gave me all the strength to carry on.

So to me you'll never fade.
Your life you gave.
My life you saved.
Your name was Layne.back to top
Falling Down
14 Shades of Grey

What's happened to you
It's obvious you've changed
Something deep inside you is probably to blame
Must be lonely up there
With your head up in the clouds
Even though you got there
What does your conscience tell you now

It's never the same on the way down
How does it feel when your feet finally hit the ground
When all thof your bridges aren't around
And the sandcastles you built are falling down

You had us all sitting right there in your hand
But you had to fall because that's how life is
Got your fingers burned by burning candles at both ends
Now the table's turned and now your demons are your friends

It's never the same on the way down
How does it feel when your feet finally hit the ground
When all thof your bridges aren't around
And the sandcastles you built are falling down

So now I question what you're gonna do
Now that everthing's gone up with you
You believe the shit you say is true
But everybody's on to you
Life remember everything you do
Your karma has caught up with you

It's never the same on the way down
How does it feel when your feet finally hit the ground
When all thof your bridges aren't around
And the sandcastles you built are falling downback to top
Reality
The lights are one.
But you're not home.
You've drifted off,
somewhere alone.
Somewhere that safe.
The questions here.
A quiet place,
where you hide from your fears.

Sometimes when you're out of rope,
the way to climb back up's unclear.
The walls you build around yourself;
I guess they all protect you here.
Are you afraid of what they think?
Whoever "they" happen to be?
Or are you hiding from,
the scars of,
your own reality?

So you sedate.
And drown in vain.
You've got a pill,
for everything.
A suit and tie,
to mask the truth.
It's ugly head,
is starting to show through.

Sometimes when you're out of rope,
the way to climb back up's unclear.
The walls you build around yourself;
I guess they all protect you here.
Are you afraid of what they think?
Whoever "they" happen to be?
Or are you hiding from,
the scars of,
your own reality?

The monster you're feeding,
your lack of perception,
the things you will do to fulfill addictions.
The light at the end of your tunnel is closing.
What is it you're so afraid of exposing?
You'd give it all up for
what's there for the taking.
Whatever it takes to keep your hands from shaking.
The same things you're thinking
might make you feel better.
The same things that probably got you here.

Tonight
14 Shades of Grey

Just try to understand this isn't what I planned
This ride's out of my hands
So now I'm forced to be something I cannot be
If onl I could make you see

Tonight I'm alive
I've watched you all grow up and so have I
Inside this isn't really what I had in mind

I no longer realate to this world of hate
That's forced upon my plate
I tend to disagree
I hope it's just not me alone
If only I could make you see

Tonight I'm alive
I've watched you all grow up and so have I
Inside this isn't really what I had in mind

Tonight I'm alive
I've watched you all grow up and so have I
Inside this isn't really what I had in mind

Tonight I'm alive
I've watched you all grow up and so have I

Could It Be
Well I odn't know what to say.
Because there's truth to what you say.
I know it kills you I'm this way.
It's something different every day.

Could it be that
I never had the chance to grow inside?
Could it be that
my habit is to find a place to hide?
Could it be that
sometimes I say things just to disagree?
Could it be that
I'm only being me?

Not easy living in my mind.
A little peace is hard to find.
My every thought is undermined
by all the history inside

Could it be that
I never had the chance to grow inside?
Could it be that
my habit is to find a place to hide?
Could it be that
sometimes I say things just to disagree?
Could it be that
I'm only being me?

I know I hear the words you say
over and over again.
I just can't get them through my head;
there's just too many voices.
Must be like living with the dead,
waiting for me to begin.
To do the things that I have said.
And for this I'm sorry.
So there's some truth to what you say...

Could it be that
I never had the chance to grow inside?
Could it be that
my habit is to find a place to hide?
Could it be that
sometimes I say things just to disagree?
Could it be that
I'm only being me?back to top
Blow Away
14 Shades of Grey

Live in my head for just one day
I see myself and look away
The road is showing now on my face
Soon I'll disappear
I'll disappear without a fucking trace

Faces that I've seen turn old and grey
I've lost too many friends along the way
Memories I never thought would fade
They fade and blow away

I wish that I could disappear
Unzip my skin and leave it here
So I could be no one again
And never let nobody
I'd let nobody
I'd let nobody in

Faces that I've seen turn old and grey
I've lost too many friends along the way
Memories I never thought would fade
They fade and blow away

So now the walls are closing in
Because in life you sink or swim
Sometimes these shoes don't feel right in my head
Feel like a book that can't be
A book that can't be
A book that can't be read

Faces that I've seen turn old and grey
I've lost too many friends along the way
Memories I never thought would fade
They fade and blow awayback to top
Intro
14 Shades of Grey

Thank you to the people in my life
For putting up with me
And thank you for the time you sacrificed
All on the account of me

For all the times I didn't say
The times I didn't say
For all the times I didn't say
The times I didn't say

Fuck you to the jaded and the fake
Like to see what you would do
Fuck you and the judgements that you make
We're not all perfect just like you
Like you
Like you

Faces that I've seen turn old and grey
I've lost too many friends along the way
Memories I never thought would fade
They fade and blow away

All the times I didn't say
All the times I didn't say
Thank you to the people in my life for putting with meback to top
