Forged in the backyards of Columbia, Pa, Dream Device is a rock band with one common goal among its 5 members. That goal is to make it to the pinnacle of the music world with the honest and revealing vocals from Dave Trageser to the unforgettable guitars riffs of Kem Hess and Adam Grieger. And to bring it all together are the driving rhythms of Shaun Hinks on bass and Scott Waltz on drums.

Lyrics

Washed Away

Written By: David Trageser

Washed Away

Digging into reality what it once was
What it should be
Trying not to leave anything undone
I’ll kill to believe
There’s still time to quote the dead
And live in their image
There’s still time to be yourself
And share your knowledge

This is the last generation
Standing up so strong
We all know that we are dying
But we still play along

When the hands of fate call we all answer, so modestly
We’ve been expecting this catastrophic disaster, since we could breathe
There’s no time for enemies, we’ll all die just the same
I refuse to act on fear, and scar my name!

This is the last generation
Standing up so strong
We all know that we are dying
But we still play along
All the words in the world could never stop what is bound to come
All the seas have been broken up and we could never run

What can we say? We’ll wash away, into our fears we disappear
What can we say?! We’ll wash away! Into our fears we disappear
All the words in the world could never stop what is bound to come
All the seas have been broken up and we could never run

Time and Place

Written By: David Trageser

Time and Place

There’s a time and a place for everyone
There’s a reason behind the man with a gun
There’s a chance for the ones who fight for life
I know ‘cause I’m one of them

There’s a meaning behind all our mistakes
There’s a reason why we all break
There’s a chance for the ones who won’t give in
I know ‘cause I’m one of them

You know you never have to fail
You can be much more than you are
You’ll live a legendary tale
And you will never be scarred

There’s a place where we all try to run and hide
I guess I’ve never found mine
There’s a time when we all need to get away
From everyone again

You know you never have to fail
You can be much more than you are
You’ll live a legendary tale
And you will never be scarred

Time’s closing in, the walls are thin, you are destined to break through them!
And now you’ve found, your higher ground, time to break this mass confusion

Shadow

Written By: David Trageser

Shadow

The mysteries crossing through my mind
Uneasy feelings setting in
How could I ever be so blind?
Through you I see my coming end

Passing by you everywhere I go
A voice in the distance let me know
We’re not so different from your kind
I wonder what you left behind!
Well now I need you here to show
The only reason you can’t let it go
So show me the truth!

Now you’ve become the entity
To show me my way!!!

I want to help you find the light
‘Cause you don’t need to be stuck here every night
I am here for you to shed a tear
Not criticize what you’ve become!!!
(Not criticize you)

I wanna know where you come from
Maybe you want to take me there
If only you could take me there
I’m sure it’s lonely where you’ve been
But I just need to see the other side of LIFE!!

What would you give to be alive?
Are you missing life too much?
Such a cold and darkened soul of tears
You’ve been a shadow all these years!!

Crucifixion

Written By: David Trageser

Crucifixion it’s the name of the game
They tied you to a tree, can you hear them mourn and pray?
Tongue, tooth a liar can you hear now so far?
Life’s run out a bit too soon, you dug your hole now there you are

Crucifixion is the name of the game
Perseverance just to place the blame
On the heads of those so different
The same ones we call pagans

Cut the ties to all the outside
Persecute the ones you never tried to know
public execution to prove yourself right
That becomes your twisted little show

Crucifixion is the name of the game
Perseverance just to place the blame
On the heads of those so different
The same ones we call pagans, yeah

It’s just not fair, it’s just not fair, it’s just not fair

Crucifixion is the name of the game
Perseverance just to place the blame
On the heads of those so different
The same ones we call pagans, yeah

It’s just not fair, it’s just not fair, no it’s just not fair, no no no no

Just Wait

Written By: David Trageser

I give this part of me to you to last a million years
So give me that part of you and save me from my tears
‘Cause I don’t want to be the one Trippin’ in the dark to find the Sun
Hangin’ off the edge of a cliff as though I’m facing death

Don’t hold that gun to my head, I’m tryin’ to compromise
But all the hatred that I see is deep within your eyes
Well I don’t want to be the one trippin’ in the dark to find the Sun
Hangin’ off the edge of a cliff as though I’m facing death

So please don’t take me for a ride and leave me hangin’ on
‘Cause all I needed all along was to just belong
Well I don’t want to be that one trippin’ in the dark to find the Sun
Hangin’ off the edge of a cliff as though I’m facing death

As though I’m facing death… As though I’m facing death!

Last Dance

Written By: David Trageser

I feel like I’ve got nothin’ to lose
It’s just me, a pen and paper and a bottle of booze
Writin’ off everything that’s been stuck in my head
If it wasn’t for my music then I’d probably be dead
Instead of pacin’ around the house all day
I gotta go out in the world I gotta show my face
This aint the way that I wanna be known
Aint gonna be another mother f****r sittin’ at home

Go out and give ‘em hell, you have so much to tell
Of all the things you’ve seen, go out and live your dream
Send the message you want to send
Spend the money you want to spend
This could be your last chance, this could be your last dance

I would rather rise and fall then never rise at all
Maybe one day I will see what it’s like to be a king!

You know we’ll never break
No matter what it takes
We’ll never be fake

Go out and give ‘em hell, you have so much to tell
Of all the things you’ve seen, go out and live your dream!
Send the message you want to send
Spend the money you want to spend
This could be your last chance, this could be your last dance
(Dance)

I would rather rise and fall then never rise at all
Maybe one day we will see what it’s like to be kings!

(GO!)

I sit back and watch the world get rich before my eyes
Now it’s my time to stand out and claim my own prize
And if all else fails I know one thing, I’ll keep my dream

You know we’ll never break!
No matter what it takes!
We’ll never be fake!
(HEYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!)

Won't Let You Die

Written By: David Trageser

You lived your life the way you planned
Had it all in your hands
Abused everyone in your way
Now it’s all gone for the better
We let you go too far this time
What the hell were we thinking?

Bloodshot and pale as death
I watch as I catch my breath
Try to save you from this mess
That you have made of yourself
We let you go too far this time
What the hell were we thinking?
Killing yourself for another line
It’s drained the best of you!

I let you down last time
But I won’t give up again
No I won’t let you die
My dearest friend

Bone-dry of all your edge
I remember you as the best
Someone I looked up to
Not this empty shell that you are
We let you go too far this time
What the hell were we thinking?
Killing yourself for another line
It’s drained the best of you!

I let you down last time
But I won’t give up again
No I won’t let you die
My dearest friend
No I won’t give up again
No I won’t let you die
My dearest friend!
