Track Name: Fearless
We walk along in darkness
Among the ghost of thieves
They can scare away naiveté
But they won't take more from me

When this falls apart
We won't regain
That part of our hearts
We lost in vain

We will be fearless
We can't be afraid by what we've seen today

We will be fearless
What has changed won't stand in our way

We talk along the distance
You feel so far away
But my love, I do not make
A promise that's made to break

When this falls apart
I will reclaim
The purpose that
They tried to take

We will be fearless
We can't be afraid by what we've seen today

We will be fearless
What has changed won't stand in our way

He who steals and flies away
Lives to steal another day
This promise will not break
When there's so much at stake
Track Name: Vessels
My body is still
But I wander between the walls
The vessels we hide in aren't hidden at all

So close and yet so far
To get back home, we'll need the stars
Find our way back to who we are

My body tossed and turned
Speechless but I mouth the words
I'm shouting silently

Can you wake me up?
So I'll come back to my body
Can you wake me up?
So I'll find my way back home
Can you wake me up?

I'm sleepless at night
With too much on my mind
I'm searching for answers but afraid of what I'll find

All these things, they mean too much
When who we are is not enough
Something's missing inside of us

I'm running out of time
Out of sight and out of mind
I'm shouting silently

Can you wake me up?
So I'll come back to my body
Can you wake me up?
So I'll find my way back home
Can you wake me up?

Show me the easy way to let go of fear
Track Name: Suffering is Not Enough
Time after time the years fly by
It always escaped me what I felt inside
These alibis are like a suicide
So I wait for the future to be alive

Nothing seems to change
When it matters too much
That I hurt instead of love

To suffer's not enough

I will feel the pain
I will shed the blood
I give myself to shame
But to suffer is not enough

Nothing seems to change
When it matters too much
That I hurt instead of love
But to suffer is not enough

Each day I give part of my soul away
Tomorrow will be the same as today
I can't help but think something else will change
And tomorrow will come and I won't be afraid

Nothing seems to change
When it matters too much
That I hurt instead of love

To suffer's not enough

I will feel the pain
I will shed the blood
I give myself to shame
But to suffer is not enough

Nothing seems to change
When it matters too much
That I hurt instead of love
But to suffer is not enough

It's not about how much you hurt
Or how everything could get so much worse
I wish you could see the truth
There is more to this than you
Because I can suffer too

I will feel the pain
I will shed the blood
I give myself to shame
But to suffer is not enough

Nothing seems to change
When it matters too much
That I hurt instead of love
But to suffer is not enough
Track Name: We Stopped Dreaming
When darkness takes away
All that we ever made
Is there something more
Off the cosmic shore
For us?

On this mote of dust
Will we fear or will we love?
If we're all alone
Will all we know
Stop us?

Have we lost our way
From what path do we stray?
We are wanderers
Longing for a purpose

Will we see a sign
Should we choose a side?

We stopped dreaming
Out in the void
Calls a faceless voice
We stopped dreaming
The sky's alive
In our hearts and minds

On the beach of fallen stars
Where bottled hopes swam so far
The nothing comes

There must be something more
Than the dreams that washed up on this shore
The nothing comes

If we come undone
Who will speak for us?

We stopped dreaming
Out in the void
Calls a faceless voice
We stopped dreaming
The sky's alive
In our hearts and minds

What about tomorrow?

We stopped dreaming
Out in the void
Calls a faceless voice
We stopped dreaming
The sky's alive
In our hearts and minds
