Lyrics

Reign Down

Written By: Harrison Young

Reign down your empty shells upon me before you go
Cause it's all I've ever seen and it's all I'll ever know
Cast down your exiled bones upon my holy ground
And they'll let us drink your rain until we drown

Aim down your arsenal for all to hear
As that's the only sound we'll hear for a hundred years
Reign down your shells 'til there's a hole in the earth
If that's your only way of showing what we're worth

And if I live through the night
I'll be climbing through to the light

When you reign down
When you reign down
When you reign down
Your empty shells
Over all of me

Reign down your tears on the wicked ones
If you let them in they'll scream about it
Show all your fears to the walking deity
Causing them to dream about it

And if we wake at the end of our days
The ones like us will have changed their ways

When you reign down
When you reign down
When you reign down
Your empty shells
Over all of me

When you reign down your empty shells upon me
When you reign down your empty shells all over your world
When you reign down
When you reign down
Then there's nowhere left for me to be

Hello Tokyo

Written By: Harrison Young

Where did you go
I'll never know
And are you blinded by the world around you
What is the price
Of your sacrifice
One that could rid you of the tragedies that drown you

Cause it's the same as before
Like two thousand-four
When I was born into the war

Hello Tokyo
Hello Earth
I have watched you like a child since your birth
Hello Washington
Hello Jerusalem
I've been sent to tell you all to start again

After the storm
Don't walk away
I will be waiting for you to take you to a brighter day
Without your rules
And without your gods
And you will find that all this time you've been living against the odds

Cause it's the same as before
Like two thousand-four
When I was born into the war

Hello Tokyo
Hello Earth
I have watched you like a child since your birth
Hello Washington
Hello Jerusalem
I've been sent to tell you all to start again

Amsterdam

Written By: Harrison Young

Art imitates art and rips my mind apart
And I am 3600 miles away
Life mimics life undeniably
The words you find in me you'll soon be fit to say

But I'm losing myself here in Amsterdam
Losing my heart and my mind
Losing my soul here in Amsterdam
Looking for something to find

Time follows time with uncertainty
And that you see is why we waste it all
Screams drown out my dreams and now I want to sleep
While I try to keep myself from feeling small

But I'm losing myself here in Amsterdam
Losing my heart and my mind
Losing my soul here in Amsterdam
Looking for something to find

What do you need?
What do you want from me?
I'm losing myself

In The End

Written By: Harrison Young

Think about your day
And think about tomorrow
Keep track of what you say
As every second's borrowed

And in the end will we all go quietly
I doubt it more and more as life goes on and on and on
Could you depend on nothing but your sanity
I doubt it more and more as life goes on

Look into your mirror
Those sad stains on your eyes
Your life is drawing nearer
And this is your reprise

And in the end will we all go quietly
I doubt it more and more as life goes on and on and on
Could you depend on nothing but your sanity
I doubt it more and more as life goes on

Don't Be Afraid

Written By: Harrison Young

I'm out of time
To say all the things I've been meaning to say
And I'm standing in line
To finally believe you can show me the way

So don't be afraid
It's all going away
Don't be afraid
It's all going away

You came to me
To show me the answers, to help me to breathe
And help them to see
Their dreams are aware of a deeper despair

So don't be afraid
It's all going away
Don't be afraid
It's all going away
