(Not) Enough 04:22
When you looked into my eyes for the first time I felt like a deer in the headlights In a moment all the things that have comprised Every accomplishment and benchmark in my life All fell flat, all came short The bar is so much higher than it was before And I don’t know if I am capable Of the love that I know you’ll be aching for I’m not the man you think I am I’m just a fraud inside his skin How long before you start to see I’m not enough, and I can’t compete With a cold sweat I was terrified But at the same time, I’ve never felt so alive My heart was full But so was my mind Cause I stockpiled lie, after lie, after lie “You can’t provide, you’re not equipped” “You’re not a man, you’re just a kid” Is what I hear inside my head The diagnosis of my own demons I’m not the man you think I am I’m just a fraud inside his skin How long before you start to see I’m not enough, and I can’t compete (I’m not enough, and I can’t compete) (I’m not enough, and I’ll never be) (I’m not enough, and I can’t compete) (With who you think I ought to be) I’m not enough, and I can’t compete I’m not enough, and I’ll never be I’m not enough, and I can’t compete With who you think I ought to be I’m not enough, and I can’t compete I’m not enough, and I’ll never be I’m not enough, and I can’t compete With who you think I ought to be (I'm not enough) (I'm not enough) I’m not enough I’m not the man you think I am I’m just a fraud inside his skin I’m not the man you think I am I’m just a fraud inside his skin How long before you start to see I’m not enough, and I can’t compete I’m not enough

(It's a matter of time) (It's a matter of time) It’s exhausting trying to understand Your intentions and your master plan I’m running a race that I can’t win Cause I’m on eggshells with every step The sands of time are running low (Revolution's coming for you) Once they’re gone, watch this unfold The iron’s hot If you’re ready or not (We’ll strike) You’ll learn you’re not immune It’s a matter of time 'Til you face your crimes (You’ll find) Your numbered days are few You can only run so far Until your heart caves in Because once the truth comes out You’ll learn who are your real friends The sands of time are running low (Revolution's coming for you) Once they’re gone, watch this unfold The iron’s hot If you’re ready or not (We’ll strike) You’ll learn you’re not immune It’s a matter of time 'Til you face your crimes (You’ll find) Your numbered days are few (It's a matter of time) (It's a matter of time) It’s a matter of time (time) Until you find find find (find) That I’m done crying (crying) Yeah today I choose I’m coming after you (Coming after you) The iron’s hot If you’re ready or not (We’ll strike) You’ll learn you’re not immune It’s a matter of time 'Til you face your crimes (You’ll find) Your numbered days are few (It's a matter of time) (It's a matter of time) Your numbered days are few (It's a matter of time) (It's a matter of time) Your numbered days are few

Old Wounds 03:16
My heart is torn Cause I warned you before about the company you keep But you sit and drink The venom of the snake That’s coiled around your neck Yeah, around your neck I don’t know Who you are I don’t know Who you are You’re not the same man you Were before I can’t pretend not to See the dark But I swear I’m through Opening old wounds You might say I’m burning the bridge we made But the fire I’ll use came from you When you struck the match To burn me at the stake You made your bed I hope it keeps you awake I don’t know Who you are You’re not the same man you Were before I can’t pretend not to See the dark But I swear I’m through Opening old wounds

Don’t ever let me go Don’t leave when I need you most Don’t think I won’t follow Where you go, I go I’m looking at you Sitting across the room Wrapping my head around The beauty that is you I’m counting my stars That you are who you are Don’t ever let me go Don’t leave when I need you most Don’t think I won’t follow Where you go, I go Where you go, I go Where you go, I go I was lost in the dark And you turned it into day I gave you my heart and I’ll never be the same In the good, and the bad, and the in between Through it all by your side is where I wanna be Don’t ever let me go Don’t leave when I need you most Don’t think I won’t follow Where you go, I go Where you go, I go Where you go, I go I’ve been waiting for this Moment for all my life To find a heart that Beats along with mine I’ve been waiting for this Moment for all my life To find a heart that Beats along with mine I’ve been waiting for this Moment for all my life To find a heart that Beats along with mine Don’t ever let me go Don’t leave when I need you most Don’t think I won’t follow Where you go, I go Where you go, I go Where you go, I go Where you go, I go

Metaphysical 01:16
I used to think That I knew the metaphysical The reason I walk through this life alone I used to think That I knew the metaphysical The reason I walk through this life alone I used to think That I knew the metaphysical The reason I walk through this life alone
6.
Buried 04:04
I used to think that I knew the metaphysical The reason I would walk through this life alone I was hated, I couldn’t take it I had no talent and I knew that I could never make it That was me That was me That was me A new revolution is rising This convolution is out of control Out of the ashes I’m climbing But I’m leaving the old me buried I didn’t have a clue what I was getting to I would find myself abandoning what I once knew What I hated, had resonated In the mirror was the one who was never sated That was me That was me A new revolution is rising This convolution is out of control Out of the ashes I’m climbing But I’m leaving the old me buried A new revolution is rising This convolution is out of control Out of the ashes I’m climbing But I’m leaving the old me buried 6 feet deep You will never see the light of day 6 feet deep Underground as you waste away 6 feet deep As you waste away A new revolution is rising This convolution is out of control Out of the ashes I’m climbing But I’m leaving the old me buried I’m leaving the old me buried

Monster 03:23
People say I’ve been changing I don’t act the same My minds rearranging I don’t feel a thing I’m not the kid that I used to be I’ve grown into a man They just don’t know the other half of me What I really am When I look at myself in the mirror I can see clearer I’m nothing but a monster You can see it in my eyes It’s crawling under my skin And I don’t think I can hide what I am Anymore I’m nothing but a monster There’s a Devil on my shoulder He’s trying to come in He said you might think you know me But you don’t know my sins There’s a place where my demons try to hide Deep down inside of me For so long I’ve kept them locked away but tonight I’m setting them free When I look at myself in the mirror I can see clearer I’m nothing but a monster You can see it in my eyes It’s crawling under my skin And I don’t think I can hide what I am Anymore I’m nothing but a monster The man in my reflection And I am not the same You see him in my likeness He answers to my name When I look at myself in the mirror I can see clearer I’m nothing but a monster You can see it in my eyes It’s crawling under my skin And I don’t think I can hide what I am, I don’t think I can hide what, I am I’m nothing but a monster

Lost It All 02:54
Here I am again I’m dying from inside Your claws still sinking in You’re like a cancer to my heart It’s killing me now I need to let go You can run, But there’s no one to save you now You can cry 'til your throat’s numb Watched you crawl, Lost it all And now you’ve found I’m burning those bridges down I can feel everything Every little ounce of pain Can’t give you all the blame By now I should’ve walked away Killing me now I need to let go You can run, But there’s no one to save you now You can cry 'til your throat’s numb Watched you crawl, Lost it all And now you’ve found I’m burning those bridges down You’re a virus, But I’m standing tall And without me, You’ve lost it all You can run, But there’s no one to save you now You can cry 'til your throat’s numb Watched you crawl, Lost it all And now you’ve found I’m burning those bridges down You can run, But there’s no one to save you now You can cry 'til your throat’s numb Watched you crawl, Lost it all And now you’ve found I’m burning those bridges down
9.
Everything was going just fine We had the time of our lives You couldn’t live without me Then it seems like just overnight I’m like a snowflake falling Into an ocean of pain And as I start dissolving I find it’s more of the same I can’t let this go It’s killing me, I know Guess I’m masochistic Waiting for my next hit I can’t let this go It’s killing me, I know Guess I’m masochistic Waiting for my next hit Sometimes our words cut deeper Than any of us can know They can send you into the ether Or to the darkest of holes And when our words are thoughtless They make the deepest of scars So I will say “I love you“ Even with a wounded heart I must like the pain I don’t wanna give it up, I like the taste I can’t let this go It’s killing me, I know Guess I’m masochistic Waiting for my next hit I can’t let this go It’s killing me, I know Guess I’m masochistic Waiting for my next hit I must like the pain I don’t wanna give it up, I like the taste I hate how it makes me feel I need to let it go and start to heal I must like the pain I don’t wanna give it up, I like the taste I hate how it makes me feel I need to let it go and start to heal I can’t let this go It’s killing me, I know Guess I’m masochistic Waiting for my next hit I can’t let this go It’s killing me, I know Guess I’m masochistic Waiting for my next hit I must like the pain I don’t wanna give it up, I like the taste I hate how it makes me feel I need to let it go and start to heal

Stratosphere 03:09
I am tired Of the same old same old Need something brighter To wake up my soul When the sun goes down The lights go up Let’s wake up this town Leave it thunderstruck When all the dust has settled And when the smoke has cleared Yeah, we will still be standing We’ll take tonight Into the stratosphere It’s been too long Since we had some fun Let’s blow the roof off, yeah The party’s just begun When the sun goes down The lights go up Let’s wake up this town Leave it thunderstruck When all the dust has settled And when the smoke has cleared Yeah, we will still be standing We’ll take tonight Into the stratosphere We are flying And we trying To chart a new frontier Getting weightless Yeah, our aim is To break the stratosphere We are flying And we trying To chart a new frontier Getting weightless Yeah, our aim is To break the stratosphere When all the dust has settled And when the smoke has cleared Yeah, we will still be standing We’ll take tonight Into the stratosphere Into the stratosphere We’ll take tonight Into the stratosphere
11.
Cut & Run 03:14
I'm at a crossroads Don't know which way to go But you can bet You won't catch me standing here forever I see you in the sunlight Wiping your eyes But you don't know the mess I'm in Every choice that I make Seems like mistake This line I'm walking is razor thin I'm at a crossroads Don't know which way to go But you can bet You won't catch me standing here forever I'm at a crossroads Don't know which way to go But you can bet You won't catch me standing here forever I can't let them Tell me who I should be I will find myself When I find my king I've never noticed this before But I see it now How I'm wearing the crown Do I lay it on the floor? Or do I just cut and run I'm at a crossroads Don't know which way to go But you can bet You won't catch me standing here forever I can't let them Tell me who I should be I will find myself When I find my king You do not know me You're not my king I'm at a crossroads Don't know which way to go I'm at a crossroads Don't know which way to go But you can bet You won't catch me standing here forever I can't let them Tell me who I should be I will find myself When I find my king

Revival 03:18
All of this time I have pretended Everything’s fine And everything’s mended But the truth is, I’ve been useless I’ve been laying down on the battle lines But today is a new day This sleeping giant’s coming awake Whatever mountain that I face Will fall You can’t stop me when I climb I’m taking back my life Ain’t running out of time, no This is my revival Thought I was dead Thought it was all over But I’m here instead And I’m getting closer To the real me that’s underneath I’m not holding back no more But today is a new day This sleeping giant’s coming awake Whatever mountain that I face Will fall You can’t stop me when I climb I’m taking back my life Ain’t running out of time, no This is my revival Yeah, this is my revival This time You won’t see me cry This time It’s a meteoric rise I’ll fight Until my heart caves in I’ll fight Until I reach the end Until I reach the end I’m taking back my life You can’t stop me when I climb I’m taking back my life Ain’t running out of time, no This is my revival
13.
On My Own 03:31
I’ve been trying to find the words to say Without you suffocating me It’s like you don’t want to hear the truth All you want to hear is you I’m So tired of the Lies Watching you trivialize Everything I try to say Today you’re gonna hear me screaming out I’ll never fall into the crowd So back up (back up) Let go (let go) I’m gonna make it on my own Open up your eyes, you’ll see that I’m Out here trying to survive Take a look at who you left behind The faces that belong to the backs you’ve climbed I’m So tired of the Lies Watching you trivialize Everything I try to say Today you’re gonna hear me screaming out I’ll never fall into the crowd So back up (back up) Let go (let go) I’m gonna make it on my own I’m not gonna wait around For you to Eventually let me down I’m here to let you know I’m better off alone Don’t care what you’ve been told I’ll make it on my own Today you’re gonna hear me screaming out I’ll never fall into the crowd So back up (back up) Let go (let go) I’m gonna make it on my own So back up (back up) Let go (let go) I’m gonna make it on my own
14.
Composure 03:38
(We're starting over) Gonna wrap my head around What I can do without Right now I’m doing too much Yeah I’m feeling overwhelmed (An) anchor is tied around My feet and I’m going down I feel cornered Like I never have before It’s something I’m fighting It’s right out my front door So here we go again We’re starting over Trying to pretend We have composure But our façade is broken We’re left out in the open I’m cutting all ties To what I have compromised It’s time I lived my life I want to prioritize Before my own demise Everything I love the most I feel cornered Like I never have before But I’m still fighting And fighting So here we go again We’re starting over Trying to pretend We have composure But our façade is broken We’re left out in the open Just give me some room to catch my breath I’ve been getting by with just what’s left As time goes by you can see the cracks I’m broken So here we go again We’re starting over Trying to pretend We have composure But our façade is broken We’re left out in the open So here we go again We’re starting over Trying to pretend We have composure But our façade is broken We’re left out in the open
