Track Name: SEARCH FOR MORE (guest vocals by Andre Grasshoff)
SEARCH FOR MORE

Lost in a world that doesn't make sense
You search for the truth but the lies never end
Pushed past the point of forgive and forget
You can run for your life or live with regret

Search for more

Stuck in a rut and losing control
You feel your grip loosen and try grab a hold
Misguided and lied to without a light
Now is the time to search for what's right

Search for more

When all the efforts you have made fall through
There's only one thing you can do
Set your sights on a brand new day and break through
Search for more
Track Name: REACHING THROUGH (guest vocals by Michael Krahl)
REACHING THROUGH

What we built was so quickly torn down
I watched it grow and then fall to the ground
A bond of trust became a mess of betrayal
We talked of friendship but out words failed
I can't stand and watch another friendship fall apart
So I'm telling you these words are true
These words are from the bottom of my heart

Reaching through to grab a hold
But all I felt was a bitter cold
Reaching through to let you know
I'm reaching
Reaching

If we search then we will find a friendship of a stronger kind
We need to learn to believe
There's so much more that we can be
It we search then we will find a friendship of a stronger kind
We need to learn to believe so we can watch this grow

We need to learn to believe in each other
I've watched this fall now I want to watch it grow
Track Name: THINK DEEP
THINK DEEP

I feel the pain of uncertainty
It surrounds and silences me
My mind consumed with endless thoughts
I saw the traps and still got caught

Can we choose a better path to take
Live through our words and learn from our mistakes
I've seen good times and I've seen the bad
I can't decide where I want to be
I'm trapped looking back

I feel the pain of uncertainty
It surrounds and strangles me
Feeling like I've lost control
Can I find the strength to rebuild my soul?

My decisions brought me here
Now I can't see things clear
Is my position due to my mistakes?
There's so much pressure
Which path do I take?

The walls are closing in and I don't know where to begin
Do I even know myself or am I living in a hollow shell?
At the point of no return
Will I cross another bridge just to watch it burn?
There are so many choices to make
The pressure builds
How long until it breaks?
Track Name: CAN WE ESCAPE?
CAN WE ESCAPE?

The steps that you take and the rules that you break just to stay free
The path that you walk to fight the lies that they talk
It can be so hard to see
Have they got control of your mind and your soul, your identity?
It's the risks that you take that will set you free

Shut down your mind and join the line just to kill some time
Just trying to get by so you choose to comply
A life so undefined
You live blind with an absent mind and hide away
For fear of standing alone

I can't follow a beaten path when new fresh tracks take me to higher ground
I can't choose a path of abuse to try to escape a world of discontent

I want to run so far from here
So far from thoughts pushed into my mind
Can we escape?

I don't want to live a wasted life running from myself into others arms
I don't chase a broken dream drawn into a lie by someone else's charms
I'm swimming upstream
I'm swimming upstream and I'm getting nowhere fast
I'm breaking away from the common path
I have to reclaim my past

I want to run so far from here
So far from thoughts pushed into my mind
Can we escape?
Track Name: TAKE CONTROL
TAKE CONTROL

I see it in your face
The hurt and pain that you're going through
Are you trying to escape through all of the stupid shit that you do?
There's a reason why you're standing here
Maybe you're not at fault, maybe you're not to blame
But if you're just going to sit here in your self defeat
You'll wake up tomorrow and it'll be the same

It's time to take control - Set your sights on some positive goals
It's time to take control - You'll lose your mind and you'll lose your soul
It's time to take control - I can't tell you how you should live
It's time to take control - But I can see that you've got so much more to give

There's so much more that you can do
The bottom of the bottle won't bring you peace
Can't you see that it's a waste?
You cloud your mind to try to put it at ease
Only you can make that change that will bring you light through all of this dark
Only you can make that change
It'll take some strength and a lot of heart

It's time to take control - Set your sights on some positive goals
It's time to take control - You'll lose your mind and you'll lose your soul
It's time to take control - I can't tell you how you should live
It's time to take control - But I can see that you've got so much more to give

Yeah I know that it's tough
There's a lot of shit for you to face
But you've got to take control and make that change
Track Name: SET IT STRAIGHT
SET IT STRAIGHT

I look in your eyes and I see nothing but fear
You want me to believe that your words are clear?

Line after line you follow their lead
It gets you some status but is that all you need?
You want me to feel that your words are the truth
It's time to get real
They have no use
You try so hard to stand out from the crowd
But you lose yourself while you're screaming so loud
Let's get it clear
Set it straight
There is no message in the words you communicate

I want to know how you can stand proud for the words that you shout so loud
It's a matter of time before the change and your beliefs get rearranged
So don't tell me what's right when you won't swim against the tide
Those words were forced into your mouth and then you screamed them like they were from deep inside

I look in your eyes and I see nothing but fear
You want me to believe that your words are clear?

Time after time you switch and you change
Don't try to tell me who's stayed the same
I know your kind and it's getting old
When the seasons change a new story is told

Don't try to tell me who's stayed the same
I won't fall for your words just to watch you change
