Track Name: All In Or Nothing
Watch the clock - it’s ticking slowly
Heart is pounding in your chest
Make your move ‘cause now you know it’s

All in or nothing, all in or nothing
All in or nothing now...

Arm yourself - prepare for battle
There is not an easy way
On the road you have to travel

All in or nothing, all in or nothing
All in or nothing now...

CHORUS
The count down’s on, you can feel it
And it’s all come down to right here, right now
Put it on the line, it’s all or nothing
And the countdown’s on - counting down...

It’s the brave who lead the fight
Never backing down for no one
Take your sword and hold on tight, it’s

All in or nothing, all in or nothing
All in or nothing now...

CHORUS

The moment of truth is here
Stand up and become
Who you were born to be

CHORUS
Track Name: Bombs & Bullets
On and on it’s all the same
We’re moving but we’re going nowhere
We never learn - we never learn a thing

Turn on the news - more bombs and bullets
What could it be that makes us do it?
Where did we learn - where did we learn to kill?

CHORUS
Could this be another heartache
This earthquake we’re feeling?
Could this be another heartache
Heartbreak we’re dealing?

Pushing each other - climb that ladder
We’re chasing the dollar and the power
Where did we learn - where did we learn to take?

Scream out to me you’re not the same
They’re beating you down for being different
Where did we learn - where did we learn to hate?

CHORUS

And in the end we might say ‘we blew it’
Can’t take it back – we can’t undo it
Without a second thought
We did what we were taught

It’s heartache
This earthquake we’re feeling
Could this be another heartache
Heartbreak we’re dealing?

CHORUS
Track Name: Scar By Scar
Gather up your things tonight
You’ve gotta make it to the other side
Right now you feel like it’s the end
But you know that you can start again

‘Cause it’s when the fall is far
That’s what makes you who you are
It’s how you face it knock by knock
And take it scar by scar

CHORUS
It’s what you’re left with after the storm
That’s what makes you strong
It’s what you’re left with after the storm
Makes you what you are

Take shelter - clouds are rolling in
And it’s darker than it’s ever been
But you know that this is not the end
You’ve gotta keep on fighting, don’t give in

‘Cause it’s when the fall is far
That’s what makes you who you are
It’s how you face it knock by knock
And take it scar by scar

CHORUS

Stormfront’s moving in
When it’s not raining, it’s pouring
You take the hit - feel the sting - let it burn within
Track Name: Take Back Your Words
Oh, my hands are tied
You leave me faithless
All the time I gave
It’s drowning my patience

Oh, I need a breath
Of fresh air to face this
I need to believe
It’s something worth saving
Saving

CHORUS
‘Cause I believed in
Your lies, Your lies
Everything you told me
You said to her
Take back your words.

How the tide can turn
When you’re swimming too deep
And of all you gave
There’s nothing I’ll keep

Now the end is near
I can almost taste it
And all that we shared
Has only been wasted
It’s wasted

CHORUS
Track Name: All I Planned (Catch Me If You Can)
I wanna live - I wanna feel alive again
I want a change - I wanna taste the life I live

Bored of everything and so sick of myself
Time just circulates, cutting off my bloodflow and...

I wanna live - I wanna feel wind in my hair
I wanna drink and dance all night ‘till no one’s left

Letting go of everything that holds me down
I’m treading water here - waiting ‘till I sink and drown

CHORUS
Catch me if you can - wake me up again
Life got in the way of all I planned

I wanna live - I wanna see the other side
I wanna run - I wanna take a different ride

Feel my heart beat pump ‘till it’s out of control
Take the long way home
Drive the roads I’ve never known

CHORUS (x2)

It’s so hard to follow your dreams
Once life takes hold - it gets caught in between
It’s got hold of me

So catch me if you can - Wake me up again
Life got in the way, it’s in the way, it’s in the way....

CHORUS
Catch me if you can - C’mon wake me up again
Life got in the way, it’s in the way, it’s in the way
Catch me if you can - I’m waking up again
Life got in the way of all I planned
Track Name: Beneath The Surface
Hush now, don’t say those words - things like that get people hurt
The ones before who spoke too loud got ‘put out’
But these are things that you should know - I won’t sit back and watch it unfold
While plans of few for all the rest control us

There’s poison in the food supply - Diet drinks to make you die
They’re killing you slowly – They’re killing us slowly

CHORUS
Wake up, stand up – wake your mind up
Beneath the surface,
They’re out there to hurt us

“Hush now” that’s what they’ll say
When you know the price we pay
For ignorance, day by day
Our freedom is what they take
So who’s gonna make them stop
When they say there’s no room for us?
Who decides who lives or dies?

There’s poison in the medicine
For sickness engineered by them
They’re killing you slowly – They’re killing us slowly

Wake up, stand up – wake your mind up
Beneath the surface, they’re out there to hurt us
Wake up, stand up – make your mind up
If you’re feeling nervous, come join the chorus

Wake up stand up – wake your mind up
Beneath the surface, they’re out there to hurt us

Wake up stand up – wake your mind up
If you’re feeling nervous, come join the chorus
Wake up stand up – make your mind up
If you’re feeling nervous, join the rest of us
‘Cause it’s getting urgent – Let’s bring down the curtain
Track Name: Domino
Oh, my love, it’s getting so hard to be
The steady one in this ebb and flowing
One minute I’m everything that you want
The next minute everything’s falling apart

Over it goes - domino, domino
Over it goes - this domino love

Oh, my love, it’s easier not to be
Diamonds so rough
You can’t see them sparkling
With no intention to polish or shine
Once the wind turns
We’re just waiting in line

CHORUS
Over it goes - domino, domino
Over it goes - your domino heart
Over it goes - domino, domino
Over it goes - this domino love

Oh - oh - another one falls
Oh - oh - ooooh

CHORUS

Over - over - over it goes, it goes
Over - over - domino love, it goes
Over - over - over it goes, it goes
Over - over - domino love
Track Name: Grey Skies
You got no clue
I could do better than you
You got no idea
What you put me through

Sick of winter hanging ‘round
I’m sick of grey skies

This is the last time
You walk all over me
And it’s the last time
I’m only half of me

Sick of winter hanging ‘round
Sick of grey skies pouring down

CHORUS
Gotta break away - dying to escape
Get out of my way - you’re my grey sky

I’ve gotta get free
Shadows over head
‘Cause when you’re here with me
I’ve got the rain instead

I’m sick of winter hanging ‘round
I’m sick of grey skies pouring down

CHORUS

Why you wanna drain me?
Why you wanna bring me down?
I’m freezing in the cold
I just want to get out

CHORUS
Gotta break away - dying to escape
Get out of my way - you’re my grey sky
Gotta break away, yeah I’m dying every day
Get out of my way - you’re my grey sky
Track Name: Buried Alive
Caught up in another day
There must be better way
Nine to five, day in day out
Then you do it all again

But late in the night
When they don’t own you
Reality comes seeping through
What am I wasting my whole life on?
Things I didn’t wanna do

CHORUS
‘Cause I wanna be different
And I, I wanna make a difference
And I - I don’t wanna be buried alive

So what are you gonna do?
Move from the crowd to the few
And now that you’ve got space around you
You can get a clearer view

Open your eyes
And see the real world
It’s not such a nice place after all
People are hurting, starving, dying
Standing by we let them fall

CHORUS

…so what are you gonna do?

I, I’m gonna be different
And I, I’m gonna make a difference
And I, I’m not gonna be buried alive

I’m not gonna be buried alive
Track Name: Truth Of A Lie
Can a liar ever see the truth of a lie
He believes in his heart to be real?
Can a broken heart ever forgive and forget
The pain it pretends it can’t feel?

CHORUS
A cold engine is the hardest to start
A betrayed one is the worst kind of heart
Left with nothing - so hurt and abused

A broken mind belives
What a broken heart says
And a broken body responds
Reaching out to hold an invisible hand
It’s been needing to touch for so long

CHORUS
A cold engine is the hardest to start
Love leaves the lonliest heart
Left with nothing - so hurt and confused

Living in fear of what may not come
Lingering on what can’t be undone
Left with nothing - just destined to lose

Searching for things that cannot be found
Screaming - never making a sound
Left with nothing - except for the truth
Track Name: Come Fighting
Sticks and stones will break my bones
But words will never kill me
Daggers fall from off your tounge
They cut me deep, but I won’t bleed

Here I am - back on my feet
Here I am - you haven’t seen the best of me

CHORUS
You can knock me down and break my bones
Take me out with sticks and stones
Every time I’ll come fighting
Every time I’ll come fighting

You can knock me over - push me ‘round
Chew me up - spit me out
Every time I’ll come fighting
Every time I’ll come fighting

Time and time again I fall
But every time I get up
Backed against the cold brick wall
I might be down, but I’m not out

Here I am - back on my feet
Here I am - you haven’t seen the last of me

CHORUS
You can knock me down and break my bones
Take me out with sticks and stones
Every time I’ll come fighting
Every time I’ll come, every time I’ll come

Yeah, Every time I’ll come fighting
Every time I’ll come (fighting), every time I’ll come

Yeah, Every time I’ll come fighting
Every time I’ll come (fighting), every time I’ll come
