Track Name: Battle Scarred
The moon caresses her figure,
Illuminating her skin,
Magnifying her strength,
Shining past those demons within,
She's come so far,
From the person she used to be

A battle scarred soul,
Shows no resemblance,
Of the girl,
She can no longer remember,
No childhood to cherish,
Her memories won't be retained,
Yeah

On the crumbling, uneven path,
Darkness engulfs her in it's midst,
She'll stumble past the fallen,
She'll part the sea and smile again.

A battle scarred soul,
Shows no resemblance,
Of the girl,
She can no longer remember,
No childhood to cherish,
Her memories won't be retained,
Yeah

(She is free from the past,
No more holding back)

A battle scarred soul,
Shows no resemblance,
Of the girl,
She can no longer remember,
No childhood to cherish,
Her memories won't be retained,
Yeah

A battle scarred soul,
Shows no resemblance,
Of the girl,
She can no longer remember,
No childhood to cherish,
Her memories won't be retained,
Yeah
Track Name: Man On Fire (feat. Paul Stuckey)
Your mind proceeds conflict
You can't hide behind the lies
All the crimes that you commit
You've undone all your ties
Your're just skin and bones
You'll leave this world
Alone.

To hell with all your excuses
You're not the same on your own
Retaliate, to retaliate would be useless
All is dark
You're on your own.


Rumors follow you around
They taint your every day
No one believes a sound
Or a single word you say
I'll laugh last you see
Your allies have sided
With me.

To hell with all your excuses
You're not the same on your own
Retaliate, to retaliate would be useless
All is dark
You're on your own.

To hell with all your excuses
You're not the same on your own
Retaliate, to retaliate would be useless
All is dark
You're on your own.
Track Name: Lights
I had a way then,
Losing it on my own,
I had heart then,
But the Queen has been overthrown,
And I'm not sleeping now,
The dark is to hard to beat,
And I'm not keeping up,
The strength I need to push me,

You show the lights that blind me,
Turn to stone,
You shine them when I'm alone,
And so I tell myself that I'll be strong,
Dreaming when they're gone,
Cause they're calling, calling, calling me home,
Calling, calling, calling home,
And the lights that blind me,
Turn to stone,
Dreaming when they're gone.

Noises,
I play within my head,
Touch my own skin,
And pray that I'm still breathing,
And I think back to when,
My brother and my sister slept,
In an unlocked place,
The only time I feel safe,

You show the lights that blind me,
Turn to stone,
You shine them when I'm alone,
And so I tell myself that I'll be strong,
Dreaming when they're gone,
Cause they're calling, calling, calling me home,
Calling, calling, calling home,
And the lights that blind me,
Turn to stone,
Dreaming when they're gone.

Next thing we're touching x8

Hit me with lightning

Oh and everybody's starry eyed,
And everybody glows,
Oh and everybody's starry eyed,
And my body glows,

Oh and everybody's starry eyed,
and my body glows.
Track Name: Forgive Me
It's been a month since we parted ways,
Without you I haven't been the same,
All I've done is stay in side for days,
And all I seem to hear is your name,

We're stuck in different worlds,
But with your help,
I guess that we could,
Rebuild the broken bridges ahead,
I can cross and our past will drift away,
We could be together again

It's been 2 months since you walked away,
I wish I could have made you stay,
Maybe there is another way,
To make you mine for another day

We're stuck in different worlds,
But with your help,
I guess that we could,
Rebuild the broken bridges ahead,
I can cross and our past will drift away,
We could be together again

Can you forgive me for what I said,
I'm so lost and alone without you,
I wish I had treated you better instead,
Of all this pain I put myself through,

We're stuck in different worlds,
But with your help,
I guess that we could,
Rebuild the broken bridges ahead,
I can cross and our past will drift away,
We could be together again
