2. Welcome to the Masquerade

We’ve got the fire, who’s got the matches?
Take a look around at the sea of masks
And come one, come all
Welcome to the grand ball
Where the strong run for cover
And the weak stand tall

I’m not one to scatter ashes
But there’s some things that’ll melt the plastic
Try and dig down deeper if you can

I’m not afraid, I’m not ashamed, I’m not to blame
Welcome to the masquerade
I’m not ashamed, I’m not afraid, I’m not o.k.
Welcome to the masquerade

We’ve got the power
Who’s got the action?
Break it down, ‘till there’s nothin’
But a mere fraction
Out of the fire, rise from the ashes
Reject your doubt, and release the passion

Let’s get on it
Believe, if you want it
Step into the realm
Where the real one’s flaunt it
Come, back, rewind
Another time on it
Reach out, take that
One off, step on it
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
3. Fire It Up

I got a bad case of turnin’ it up
It’s getting cold in here
So fire it up
I got a bad case of turnin’ it up
It’s getting cold in here
So somebody...

Fire it up, come on and fire it up

I’m in love, with the feelin’
Of pressure to the ceilin’
Wake up with intention to
Face my opposition
Get raw, when it’s time to
Lay it on the line
To the wall’s where we’re takin’ it
Let your light shine... like...

I throw down when it’s time
For the action, make it happen
And the sound got ya feelin’ like
Man, what just happened?
When it’s on
You might not get a warning
Or a sign
To the wall’s where we’re takin’ it
Let your light shine... like...

I got a bad case of turnin’ it up
It’s getting cold in here
So fire it up
I got a bad case of turnin’ it up
It’s getting cold in here
So somebody...
Take it higher until the roof is on fire
Take it higher, let’s burn it up
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
4. Bring Me to Life

Open your mind, don’t let it slip and
Take you on a midnight ride that’s wicked
Everyone around here, comes here feelin’
Fed up with the way their wounds are healing
Take me to a place where doors are open
A lovely little place where no one’s broken
Welcome to the world of “no one’s listenin”
I just wanna break out, and escape this prison

Bring me to life, breathe air into me
It’s taken me my whole life to realize
All the things I’ve never seen
Bring me to life, breathe air into me
Take me from the darkness that I’ve been in
‘Cause I just want to be free

Come on, start your engines, flip that switch
And take it to the limit, if you ride like this
And if ya feel alive, then pump your fist
‘Cause there’s no turning back
When the energy hits
Down comes the rain
Like a hurricane, hard to breathe
Like a storm hangin’ over me
It’s comin’ to get me, but I don’t have to let it in
I’ll stand up, face my fears like an enemy

I’ve been wanting to break out
You helped me figure out
That I could come to life
And turn this thing around
Been wanting to break out
You helped me figure out
That I could come to life
And turn this thing around

Just, shut it! If you’re talkin’ to me
I’m sick and tired of all your lies
And what you want me to be
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
5. E for Extinction

I’m not the same as yesterday
Ooh... It’s hard to explain
How things have changed
But I’m not the same as before
And I know there’s so much more ahead
I can barely believe that I’m here
And I won’t surrender quietly
Step up and watch me go

Break down, ya really want it?
Wanna make a scene?
Show me what ya mean
Let’s get it started
Let me see whatcha got
Can ya take it up a knotch?
Don’t think you got it
Can’t handle the pressure?
Get, off, stop talkin’ about it
Gotta make this count, let’s go

When we move
We camouflage ourselves
We stand in the shadows waiting
We live for this and nothing more
We are what you created

I can feel the storm
The winds have changed
Ooh... ‘Cause we’re worlds a part
But just the same
But we won’t leave the way that we came
And I know there’s so much more ahead
I can barely believe that we’re here
We won’t surrender quietly
Step up and watch it go

Are you ready? Are ya ready?
Are ya ready for me?
Are you ready? Are ya ready?
Are ya ready to see?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
6. Watching Over Me

Don’t lie to me
I’ve seen everything I need
And I’ve heard all the requests
Like a symphony of thieves

Don’t cry for me
I don’t need your sympathy
I’ve got everything I need
Right here inside of me

And I know it’s not that simple
But I think I’ll get it right
‘Cause no one else is listening tonight

I know you’re out there
And I know you care
‘Cause I feel you
Like an angel watching over me

Don’t shut me out
I’m an arson to myself
Who can’t put out the fires
Until there’s nothing left

So take my broken glass
And help me make a window
So I can see your face
After all that I have been through

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
7. The Part That Hurts the Most (Is Me)

Everyday I get a little closer
And everything I’m made of starts to melt away
I see the signs, but I can’t quite make
The words out, all I want is to be near you
But I’ll push you away

I just want to get away
But I hurt you everyday

The part that hurts the most, is me
The most, is you
It’s everything I do, without you
The part that hurts the most, is me
The most, is you
It’s everything I do, without you

Every chance I get I’m movin’ closer
I know I’m not supposed to
But I can’t break away
I see the signs, but I can’t quite make
The words out, all I want is to be near you
But I’ll push you away

I hate talkin’ about it
Tried to lose it
But instead I found it
I just want you to know
I couldn’t love anyone more...

No! Stay away from me
Get up! I’m tryin’ to walk away
It just won’t let up!
No! Stay away from me
Get up! I’m tryin’ to walk away
It just won’t let up!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
8. Scream

I can’t erase it anymore
It follows me everywhere I go
It’s like a mask that I don’t want to wear anymore

I think I’ve found a way to let it go
But it’s still too soon to know for sure
I’d give everything I am
To just feel somethin’

Can you feel that?

Scream! When the pressure breaks me
When it’s too hard to see
When I feel like I’m at the end of my rope
One more time
Scream! When the fire burns me
When it’s hard to break free
When I feel like I’m standin’ on the edge
Of it all this time

I can’t suppress it anymore
Here it comes like a flood
Just like before, when it rains, it pours
And I don’t want to swim anymore

I think I’ve found a way to let it go
I don’t know, I’ve never felt this way before
But with everything I am, I just let go...

You make me wanna scream...

It’s not a joke
I’ve felt as messed up as you do
I’ve felt the feelings you’ve been feeling
Been through the same things
You’ve been through
And I know how hard it is
To feel like you’re all alone
We’ve all been given a second chance
But the choice is all our own
(It was right in front of me...)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
9. Look Away

She’s everything to everyone
Wish I could have seen it come down
But I heard incorrectly

It seems everything she knows is now
Five minutes ‘till closing
that’s not a lot of time when you’re nervous

And they say, daughter look away, don’t be afraid
When you want to turn back a million times
And it might get colder, but wait ‘till it’s over
Darlin’, you’ll find your way

But she said...

I, will not look away this time
Take all these cuts, and make them shine
And all this pain I’ve held inside
So I can find my way home again
I will not look away this time
Take all these cuts, and make them shine
Don’t want to be perfect, just alright...

He’s on his way to nowhere
‘Cause he heard it was safe there
And safe is something valuable here
He’s spent half his life searching
And the other half working
Hard to find out if Jesus is real

And they said, son look away, don’t be afraid
When you want to turn back a million times
And it might get colder, but wait ‘till it’s over
Son, you will find your way

But he said...

Every time, every line,
Every time you wanna say goodbye, sing...

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
10. Forward Motion

Let’s keep it moving in a forward motion
If we can hold on, we can cross this ocean
There’s no sense in lettin’ our emotions
Get in the way, until the door keeps closin’

If we sort this out, would we know how
To live like we were different
I know we’ve both had some doubts
Whether things would come around
And look at us now...

I’m not trying to tell you how to live your life...

I never thought we’d doubt
Whether this world would come around
And work itself out
But it’s more than a sound
When it moves everyone around
Are ya ready now?

And I’m not trying to tell you how to live your life...

I won’t be afraid
Your hands they cover me
It’s so worth it
I can’t let it fade
My hands are high and raised
‘Cause it’s worth it

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
11. Outta Control

It feels like a dream
How did things all get so crazy?
I’m remembering
Before, when I felt so clean

Alone in my room
It feels like the walls are closing in
I’m thinking of you
‘Cause I know what’ll happen soon

I’m spinning, out of control
Not knowing which way to go
Feelin’ left out in the cold

I just wanna let go of it all
And climb up over the wall
I need some help to get back on my feet
If you’re out there, cover me

You thought you could come and take it all
Without hurting me
That was your biggest mistake
Should have known when you saw me break!
Alone in my room (I sit)
And pray that the walls stop closin’ in
And every breath I take’s
A step further away from the end of me

I wanna get this off my mind
There’s no one else I can tell...
Please listen to me...

In a world where confusion is only an illusion
And fear itself, is just another
Weak-minded solution
I live in a generation with too much information
Instead of bonding together
We bring anger to the nation
My faith is the only thing I’ve got
And no one can take that from me

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
12. Smack Down

Get ready for the smack down
Get ready for the smack down
How ya gonna react
When ya put on ya back now
‘Cause there’s no turnin’ back
When you’re facin’ the smack down

Come on, let’s kick it, let’s all get wicked
Put your hands in the sky for a one-way ticket
C’mon!

Come on everybody, gonna start this party
If we turn it to 11, then we can’t go wrong

And I’m not tryin’ to tell you
There won’t be a longer road
When it all comes down
You’ll know just what to do
Gonna burn this down
And keep on runnin’
‘Till my time here is through
‘Cause when it all comes down
I know just what to do

Come on, let’s rip it, let’s push that limit
If ya don’t feel pain, then ya can’t be winning
C’mon!

They said I wouldn’t be nothin’
I said stop frontin’
Put the pedal to the metal
‘Cause the storm is comin’

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
13. Already Home

The trouble with truth is it never lies
And the trouble with wrong’s
That it’s never right
So I rest my head under Your light
The trouble with peace, is it never fights
And the trouble with love’s
That it’s always blind
I want to walk to the edge of it
Tonight, and I fall down

I am on my knees
‘Cause You’re everything I need
And I’ve made a mess of myself
On my own
Now I am on my face
And I’m calling out Your name
And I won’t run away
‘Cause I’m already home

The trouble with tears is that they dry
And the trouble within
Made me wanna cry
I’ve never felt so much like I’m alive
I wanna open my eyes and see Your face
If I have to wait a thousand days
I’ll still be right here, right next to You
And I fall down

And I know I haven’t always been
Where You wanted me
I’m standin’ here, arms out
Broken down
Before you
