Okay 02:28
Walking the straight line is easy Chin up, eyes front, feet on the solid ground Okay Broken in two beneath me Paralyzed, I can’t stop looking down Okay It’s okay I’m not okay I try to be okay
2.
Eyes open wide, nobody speaks My mind is numb, my body’s weak What could I say? What a shame It’s not too soon to be too late You never think today’s the day You’ll put your heart into a grave Wasted time… can’t deny It’s not too soon to be too late Don’t wake up, keep sleeping I hope that you hear you me I will bury all the pain somewhere far away And try to be okay You turned the future inside-out I only trusted all my doubts All the same, I remain It’s not too soon to be too late Today’s the day I put my heart into a grave Wasted time… won’t deny It’s not too soon to be too late Don’t wake up, keep sleeping I hope that you hear you me I will bury all the pain somewhere far away And try to be okay I know that it’s too late I watched you slip away I was wrong to wait I hope you hear me say Don’t wake up Don’t wake up

Downhill 03:20
We all know why you’re on the throne as the cannibal king Don’t turn your back, the jokers and jacks all want the same thing And it’s all downhill from here It’s all downhill from here Stack the deck so you win the game No place to hide when they call your name We all know and we don’t forget We all know there’s one sure bet It’s all downhill from here It’s all downhill from here Tip the scales with the weight of the truth, yeah Heads will roll and they’ll start with you It’s all downhill from here It’s all downhill from here Tip the scales with the weight of the truth, yeah Heads will roll and they’ll start with you It’s all downhill from here It’s all downhill from here Yeah, we all know that heads will roll Yeah, we all know heads will roll Yeah, heads will roll
4.
It doesn’t matter if you tip-toe, go slow When you end up on a landmine, honey You never made it to the big show, oh no A big joke that you never found funny Oh no, oh no, oh no They all look at you the same way, don’t they? You could have been any of the others Automatically, they say, “no way” No way through the red line cutters You never thought it would end here But don’t you always end up here? You thought you could almost be… almost be something You’d almost be something here You come around looking down, such a pity How can you be sad looking so pretty? Into the trap, we all come, get stung Bled white in the red line city You thought you could almost be… almost be something You’d almost be something here, whoa Please don’t let your heavy heart hold you down below You will only disappear You thought you could almost be… almost be something You’d almost be something here Please don’t let your heavy heart hold you down below You will only disappear
5.
Little pieces, they fall away and I’m what’s left I don’t even know if I’ll even know you Does the mind just fall apart, just like I did? Staring at the door, I know I should leave, I don’t know why All my thoughts and my days, just one infinite repeat Fake a smile, thanks again for stopping by It’s not a bad dream, It’s not a fairytale There’s no happy ending coming soon To be the one who has to write the final word It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do No, you never forget Never get over it In time, you just get used to it But I am not used to it yet It’s not a bad dream, It’s not a fairy tale There’s no happy ending coming soon To be the one who has to write the final word It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do There is nothing left There is nothing here There is nothing without you To be the one who has to write the final word It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do

Opportunity 03:25
You’ve got your finger on the button No way that you could just say nothing The argument is never over So push the bar a little lower Never miss an opportunity Never miss an opportunity An impulse you cannot escape Don’t think it through, don’t hesitate At the center of the universe There’s no question, you’ll be shooting first Never miss an opportunity Never miss an opportunity Filth is dripping off your tongue Up on your soapbox in the mud To hell with dignity, humanity, and decency To hell with everyone Never miss an opportunity Never miss an opportunity, oh yeah
7.
You can say you’re sorry Get your body clean You can’t wash away the memory It’s another sunrise And you still can’t sleep When you close your eyes, you start to bleed A trail that leads right back to me Oh my god What have you done? One final breath escapes my lungs Now you know what you’ve become Shadows in the fading light The time has come to pay the price All the demons you don’t believe in Are waiting at your door tonight
8.
Broke down in a small town You want to be found, but you don’t know what that means Did you get down on your knees? Did you try to still believe? Did you pray for some relief? Did you find the answer? Feeling you never fit in Like there’s something that everyone just knew Everyone but you And now you don’t know what to do How could you make it through to whatever’s after? And they said it’s all in your head And they said it’s all in your head It’s all in your head Don’t be so sad, just let it go Could anybody understand they just let you go They let you go They just let you go Cut through like they know you, what you should do But nothing here was real They don’t care how you feel A truth you won’t reveal Don’t be the squeaky wheel Can you fake the laughter? And they said it’s all in your head And they said it’s all in your head It’s all in your head It’s all in your head
9.
My heart is a black hole It never lets go My head is spinning just beyond the edge I see light in your eyes It tugs at my spine I know it all ends with regrets I still get lost in the dark With nothing to hold onto I still get lost in the dark When I can’t feel anything The signal’s fading And I’m still waiting For you to give up on me and move on It wasn’t always this way I still remember sunny days Before it all collapsed inside I still get lost in the dark With nothing to hold onto I still get lost in the dark When I can’t feel anything Nothing I still get lost in the dark I still get lost every time I still get lost in the dark When I can’t feel anything Nothing, nothing My heart is a black hole It never lets go My head is spinning just beyond the edge
10.
I froze to death out in the storm Ten feet away from your front porch Safe and warm, you slept inside You didn’t say a word until summer came Everything you owned, you gave away You took off your clothes and you went outside You laid down by my grave and died Hand-in-hand, my immortal love No fire below, no light above Death can’t touch a love so strong We remain where we belong Forevermore, we’ll haunt this place Eternity in a dark embrace We belong We belong We belong We belong Where we belong Where we belong Where we belong Where we will remain
