Track Name: Fighting the Darkness
When are you gonna change?
When are you gonna come up for air?
When are you gonna change?

You keep fighting the darkness with your eyes closed
You're fighting fire with a flamethrower
Fighting the darkness with your eyes closed
Hitting the bottom and trying to sink lower

When are you gonna stop?
Everyone around you just wants to help
When are you gonna stop?
Can't you see you're only hurting yourself

You keep fighting the darkness with your eyes closed
You're fighting fire with a flamethrower
Fighting the darkness with your eyes closed
Hitting the bottom and trying to sink lower

What is it gonna take?
If you keep this up there'll be nothing left of you
What is it gonna take?
Can't you hear me when I tell you that I love you?

You keep fighting the darkness with your eyes closed
You're fighting fire with a flamethrower
Fighting the darkness with your eyes closed
Hitting the bottom and trying to sink lower
Track Name: I Wish I Had My Skin
I wish I had my skin
Then I wouldn't feel so cold
I wish I had my skin
To close this empty hole

Everyone can see how much I hurt
Everyone can see the pain I'm in

I wish I had my skin
So I could close my eyes and get some rest
I wish I had my skin
To keep my heart from falling
Out of my chest

Everyone can see how much I hurt
Everyone can see the pain I'm in

I wish I had my skin

I find myself praying for the end to come soon
I feel like I'm a walking open wound

I wish I had my skin
To shield me from the rain
I wish I had my skin
Then I wouldn't feel so tempted looking at my veins

Everyone can see how much I hurt
Everyone can see the pain I'm in
Everyone can see how much I hurt
Everyone can see the pain I'm in

I wish I had my skin
Track Name: Gratitude
If you look hard enough
You can find
Something to be thankful for

Maybe the things you were holding onto so tight
Are things you don’t need anymore

Rise up and be grateful
Rise up and dry your eyes
Rise up and be thankful
You made it through another day
You’re alive

If you look hard enough
You will see
You have more than you know

Everything you wanted was nothing that you need
Maybe it’s time to let go

Rise up and be grateful
Rise up and dry your eyes
Rise up and be thankful
You made it through another day
You’re alive

If you listen closely
You can hear
The beating of your heart

The road to happiness runs straight though fear
Sometimes the bottom is the perfect place to start

Rise up and be grateful
Rise up and dry your eyes
Rise up and be thankful
You made it through another day
You’re alive
Track Name: Forgiveness
I wish I could erase the past
And wipe away what you've done to me
I wish I could write the story
Of a future where we live in peace
I wish I could erase the past
And wipe away what I've done to you
I wish I could write the story
Of a future where we call a truce

If I don't forgive you, I will always be angry
If I don't forgive myself, I'll never be free

I don't want to carry the weight of the past
Into my life today
I don't want to poison the future
By holding onto my mistakes
I don't want you to carry the burden
Of what's we did and what we said
I'm tired of drinking this poison and waiting for you to end up dead

If I don't forgive you, I will always be angry
If I don't forgive myself, I'll never be free
If I don't forgive you, I will always be angry
If I don't forgive myself, I'll never be free

Everything we keep inside is killing us
Can't you see?
All the hurt we keep inside is killing you
Killing me

I wish I could erase the guilt, the hurt, the blame, the lies (and the) shame
But I don't want to pretend nothing happened and walk away from it all unchanged
Everything happens for a reason and maybe one day we will know
I can only hope and pray we both find a way to live and let go

If I don't forgive you, I will always be angry
If I don't forgive myself, I'll never be free
If I don't forgive you, I will always be angry
If I don't forgive myself, I'll never be free

Everything we keep inside is killing us
Can't you see?
Track Name: Thoughtfulness
I think I’m happy
I think I’m free
I am whatever I choose to believe
(2x)

My life changed for the better
When I finally stopped fighting myself
Instead of giving up on life
I gave up on pleasing everybody else

I think I’m happy
I think I’m free
I am whatever I choose to believe
(2x)

My life changed forever
When I finally realized
Happiness comes from the inside out
You feel it in your heart, but it starts in your mind

I think I’m happy
I think I’m free
I am whatever I choose to believe
I think I’m happy
I think I’m free
I am whatever I choose to believe

You can think about all the good in you
Or you can think about everything you're not
The quality of your life depends
On the quality of your thoughts

I think I’m happy
I think I’m free
I am whatever I choose to believe
I think I’m happy
I think I’m free
I am whatever I choose to believe
I think I’m happy
I think I’m free
I am whatever I choose to believe
Track Name: I Still Believe in Love
Throw a penny in a fountain
Wish upon a falling star
Hope and pray for love to find a way
To find its way back into your broken heart

I've been knocked down
I've been dragged out
I've been left out in the cold
I have lived the kind of stories that are better left untold
But I have not given up
I have seen what love can do
I have suffered through the bad times but it's always pulled me through

I still believe in love
I still believe in love

Second chances happen more than once
Lighting strikes more than twice
The world around us is constantly changing
But you'll miss it if you close your eyes

I've been lost
I've been confused
I know what it's like to lose
I have bee to he bottom and survived
And though I turned my back on love, it never turned its back on me
It's the only reason I am still alive

I still believe in love
I still believe in love

When you think your life is over, think again
There's a new life in you waiting to begin

I still believe in love
I still believe in love
I still believe in love
I still believe in love
Track Name: Broke (live)
Sometimes it's better to break than it is to bend
When you can see all the pieces, it's easier to put them together again

You can step into the light
Or you can hide behind mirrors and smoke
Take a look around you now
I think something just broke

Sometimes you're better off banging your head against a wall
If you knock yourself out, you might find someone to catch you when you fall

You can step into the light
Or you can hide behind mirrors and smoke
Take a look around you now
I think something just broke

Can you hear that sound?
I think something just broke
Can you hear that sound?
I think something just broke
Can you hear that sound?
I think something just broke
Can you hear that sound?
I think something just broke

Sometimes it's better to be lost than to always know the way
If you never scare yourself, how will you ever learn to be brave?

You can step into the light
Or you can hide behind mirrors and smoke
Take a look around you now
I think something just broke

I think something just broke
I think something just broke
I think something just broke
Track Name: Fighting the Darkness (live)
When are you gonna change?
When are you gonna come up for air?
When are you gonna change?

You keep fighting the darkness with your eyes closed

When are you gonna stop?
Everyone around you just wants to help
When are you gonna stop?
Can't you see you're only hurting yourself

You keep fighting the darkness with your eyes closed
You're fighting fire with a flamethrower
Fighting the darkness with your eyes closed
Hitting the bottom and trying to sink lower

What is it gonna take?
If you keep this up there'll be nothing left of you
What is it gonna take?
Can't you hear me when I tell you that I love you?

You keep fighting the darkness with your eyes closed
You're fighting fire with a flamethrower
Fighting the darkness with your eyes closed
Hitting the bottom and trying to sink lower

Track Name: Ruthless Honesty (live)
I can’t close my eyes anymore
I can’t look away
I can’t bury my head in the sand and
Pretend everything’s okay

The truth hurts
But it’s always exactly what you need
The truth hurts
But if you face the truth, it’ll set you free

I can’t go on living this way
I can’t live a lie
I swallow my anger, wash it down with my sorrow
And it’s eating me alive

The truth hurts
But it’s always exactly what you need
The truth hurts
But if you face the truth, it’ll set you free

Cover a lie with another lie if you think that’ll do the trick
Will you be able to cover the cost when your secrets make you sick?

I can’t remember the lies I’ve told
I can’t keep my story straight
The truth is coming hard and fast
And I can’t move out of the way

The truth hurts
But it’s always exactly what you need
The truth hurts
But if you face the truth, it’ll set you free

I can’t go on living this way
I can’t live a lie
Track Name: Acceptance (live)
Something in me knew this day would come
Something in me knew I couldn't hide
Something in me said it's time to stop running
And swallow my pride

Time to own up to the truth
Time to say, "Yeah, it was me."
The only thing that's left for me to do
Is accept responsibility

I always knew I couldn't live this way forever
I knew that it would catch up with me
I knew that I would have to face the music
Eventually

Time to own up to the truth
Time to say, "Yeah, it was me."
The only thing that's left for me to do
Is accept responsibility

I never thought that I would end up where I am
But I brought it on myself
Feeling guilty won't make anyone feel better, but...
Feeling responsible will help

Time to own up to the truth
Time to say, "Yeah, it was me."
The only thing that's left for me to do
Is accept responsibility
Track Name: Forgiveness (live)
I wish I could erase the past
And wipe away what you've done to me
I wish I could write the story
Of a future where we live in peace
I wish I could erase the past
And wipe away what I've done to you
I wish I could write the story
Of a future where we call a truce

If I don't forgive you, I will always be angry
If I don't forgive myself, I'll never be free

I don't want to carry the weight of the past

I don't want you to carry the burden

I'm tired of drinking this poison and waiting for you to end up dead

If I don't forgive you, I will always be angry
If I don't forgive myself, I'll never be free
If I don't forgive you, I will always be angry
If I don't forgive myself, I'll never be free

Can't you see?
All the hurt we keep inside is killing you
Killing me

Track Name: Reason for Everything (live)
I have nothing left worth fighting for
But somehow I have found the will to survive
My soul has been shaken to the core
But I have never felt so alive

There's a reason for everything
A reason for everything

All too often I've been proven wrong
But I no longer feel the need to be right
Knowing that I'm weak is what makes me strong
In my darkest hour I see the light

There's a reason for everything
A reason for everything

I cut myself wide open in a search to find my soul
I thought I needed a broken heart to feel and blind eyes to see
It was only after I decided I was already whole
That love came in and showed itself to me

There's a reason for everything
A reason for everything
Track Name: I Still Believe in Love (live)
Throw a penny in a fountain
Wish upon a falling star
Hope and pray for love to find a way
To find its way back into your broken heart

I've been knocked down
I've been dragged out
I've been left out in the cold
I have lived the kind of stories that are better left untold
But I have not given up
I have seen what love can do
I have suffered through the bad times but it's always pulled me through

I still believe in love
I still believe in love

Second chances happen more than once
Lighting strikes more than twice
The world around us is constantly changing
But you'll miss it if you close your eyes

I've been lost
I've been confused
I know what it's like to lose
I have bee to he bottom and survived
And though I turned my back on love, it never turned its back on me
It's the only reason I am still alive

I still believe in love
I still believe in love

When you think your life is over, think again
There's a new life in you waiting to begin

I still believe in love
I still believe in love
I still believe in love
I still believe in love
