They told me something was wrong
I know that I was too strong
Too green Too red that's inside Theres nothing left for me

Watch out...Fragile

Reflect on all that I see
No you and there is no me
There is no key get out
State of emergency

Keep Your Love and Respect
You got to feel its time to come correct
Keep your heart in check
You got to feel its time to come correct

You try and defeat me
You can not beat me were to strong
Don't try and defeat me
You can not beat me were to strong

Fragile, Fragile

Keep Your Love and Respect
You got to feel its time to come correct
Keep your heart in check
You got to feel its time to come correct

They try and defeat me
You can not beat me were to strong
Don't try and defeat me
You can not beat me were to strong

Right before my eyes could lose their shine
Before my mouth could crack its sour smile
Before my heart could slow its beating down
Before these hands cant hold it at bay
and before this prayer could wither away
Before this one thought strikes me cold and stray
I set myself on fire
I set myself on fire
Everything in this world feels broken
Blissfully unaware its over
Danced into the fire we have started, yeah
Swallowing the thing slowly killing
make me empty as empty can be
smiling like the rain around your heartbreak
I set myself on fire
I set myself on fire
Your free tonight - to breathe and rhyme
with me tonight - your free tonight
to breathe and rhyme - with me tonight

Beware there's an ice age coming
Earth decay is our golden age
One mistake now the sea shall drag you down
Roll tide show us our black mourning
Slowly rolling with a summers warning
I awoke the day I saw it all

The seas boiled and skies fell down
on black Wednesday

Wave of change its a new dawning
How we always ignore the warnings
Take a breath cause the cancer fills you now

The sun isn't rising
For there's a crack in the sky
Death as a whisper
Cause no ones alive
We go over and over
and it's left us all blind
I was them

The sun isn't rising
For there's a crack in the sky
Death as a whisper
Cause no ones alive
We go over and over
and it's left us all blind
I was them
AM I ONE

I am myself, I'm one
Conceit for these things I've done yeah
My eyes have seen no love
Silence drowning all my screams yeah

Sundown dazzles my eyes
I see, I bleed at your feet yeah
My peace, my needs, my world
I break, I kneel, I weep yeah

So if you hear my warnings or ignore my lines
And as you beg forgiveness I will crack a smile
Cause I am, I am, I'm one
I am, I am, I'm one

Belief in me so pure
Guilty verdicts overturned yeah
My friends ascend that's for sure
My thoughts, My dreams, I'm free yeah

Black light, Black holes, goodbye
Try to see through distant eyes yeah
Heartless, heartbeat, Jealousy
I live right here for now yeah

So if you hear my warnings or ignore my lines
And as you beg forgiveness I will crack a smile
Cause I am, I am, I'm one
I am, I am, I'm one

Cause I am, I am, I'm one
I am, I am, I'm one

I am one

You wipe the sky clean buried in your unseen burden in the melody
You See the right through me empty as I can be hallow like a memory

You keep your eye on where you think I'm hiding and I'll keep my back on you
You think it's over long before you notice time ain't standing still for you

I found an island empire of the mind and I ain't coming down again, yeah

You've got your way out, and I got my way out and we ain't got anything
I found an island empire of the mind, and I ain't coming down again

Oh you see right through me
Empty as I can be hollow like a memory

I found an island empire in my mind
You keep your eye on where I'm hiding
You'll see right through me
Empty as I can be
Hollow like a memory
kings of dust

You push your lies into me
Two at a time they fill me
Empty your thoughts out on us
Push your way through the obvious

To sell your children for dust
To line your soul with that curse
The gun inside his head will be there

A strange occurrence like a distant call to arms
In case you're wondering it goes on and on and on
It's not too late to find, its not so far away

Forever ready adopt and discard
Disbanding protest with broken heart
Crooked scenes on broken grounds
The lie inside his head will be there

A strange occurrence like a distant call to arms
In case you're wondering it goes on and on and on
It's not too late to find, its not so far away

A strange occurrence like a distant call to arms
In case you're wondering it goes on and on and on
It's not too late to find, its not so far away
It's not too late to find, its not so far away

A strange occurrence like a distant call to arms
In case you're wondering it goes on and on and on
It's not too late to find, its not so far away

Throw down your sword you'll be fighting no more
At least that's what you said
You'll see in my smile that I've already won
Its all making perfect sense
You twist and you writhe in your latest design
But still you are nothing
Oh well circumstances seems so out of control
You're now left with no one there...

So far from this, I'm not the only one
Farewell to this we're gonna get up and run
Cause this is the sound of my gun

Too soon it was hell but it seemed so much fun
Pretending you made us
Dressed up for the show I was having a go
How quick it blew over
I said in my lines over a dozen times
You knew that I'd hate it
Oh well I can tell when it's all said and done
That I'm gonna make it... yeah

So far from this, I'm not the only one
Farewell to this we're gonna get up and run
Cause this is the sound of my gun

So far from this, I'm not the only one
Farewell to this we're gonna get up and run
Cause this is the sound of my gun

He eased his way into the
Broken stream of city sidewalk
Against the minds of everyone else
There against the neon
That hollow chaos only comes from
Somewhere unrelated
Insignificant one of many
Fish to feed or follow
Erase the day you had erase
The day to come and linger
On over cigarettes and how you need
Directions altered
Three voices in your head and
None of them resemble father
Three voices in your head and
None of us become each other

If I can hear, hear it in my head
Can I hold it, hold it in my hand
Hold it in, hold it in my

A spark of light against a screen
Of tin and glass and copper
And rats the size of everything we said
We'd never die for
Changing out everything that would not fit
We turn it into
Ourselves we look away from who
We are who we become

If I can hear, hear it in my head
Can I hold it, hold it in my hand
Hold it in, hold it in my

A spark of light against a screen
Of tin and glass and copper
None of them resemble the father
All over cigarettes and how you need
Directions altered
If I can hear it in my head
Hear it in my

If I can hear, hear it in my head
Can I hold it in my hand
If I can hear, hear it in my head
Can I hold it, hold it in my hand
Hold it in, hold it in, hold it my
the spoon and sun

Lay inside me like a fly in honey
See the sun inside the moon
Dying by the hour
Slack-jawed staring through the sunshine
Like a needle and a spoon
Feeds one another
And now I found myself and then you say

Open the day like a grave and wander
Through the markers of the meaningful
And the liars
Leave your flowers at the feet of your enemies
See the maggot in your own eye
Pink, fat, eternal
And now I found myself and then you say

I don't mind... gladly take the fall
And as it ends, you'll see my friend
You were no friend then

Gathering seconds from the scattering starlight
The planets all drop and fall before you
Like martyrs
Adrift eternal in a sea of blindness
Kill the messengers and feed the poisons
To each other
There ain't no cure for the world that we're livin in
There ain't a way out anywhere
That you can find now
And now I found myself and then you say

I don't mind... gladly take the fall
And as it ends, you'll see my friend
You were no friend
You were no friend then
I don't mind, you were no friend
You were no friend then
