Lyrics

OUT OF THE VOID

Written By: JAMES FORIER

FRESH FROM OUT OF THE VOID
AND MY BODY'S PURE
AND THE WORDS THAT I'M SPEAKING YOU CAN'T IGNORE
AND MY MIND IS CLEANSED NOW
YEAH MY SPIRIT IS CLEANSED NOW
TAKE WITH YOU MY WORDS
SPREAD THEM IF YOU CHOOSE
I'VE BEEN BORN TO REVEAL
THE SOUL I HAVE WITHIN
OPEN UP YOUR MIND NOW
AND LET THE MUSIC INSIDE
SPIT ME OUT
I GOT ANOTHER NEW VOID
THAT I FELL INTO
YOU KNOW I HAVEN'T BEEN SLEEPING PRETENDING TO
AND MY MIND IS CLEANSED NOW
YEAH MY SPIRIT IS CLEANSED NOW
START ALL OVER AGAIN
WITH MY BODY COLD
I GOT NO TIME TO BE WASTING
NOT ANYMORE
LEAVE YOUR BODY BEHIND YOU
AND COME WITH ME FOR A WHILE
SPIT ME OUT

HEY! WHAT?!
SO WHAT AM I TO DO NOW????????

FOR REASONS UNKNOWN

Written By: JAMES FORIER

AND THIS TIME I SWEAR I'LL
TAKE YOU OUT
NEVER WOULD I LET A FLASHBACK
DESTROY ME NOW
NEVER THOUGHT I'D STAND UP
NEVER THOUGHT I'D STAND UP
BESIDE YOU HERE AND NOW

SOLO MIND IT GETS HEAVY
WHEN I SING
HIS HEART BLEEDS HEAVY
ALONE I GET SO HEAVY
WHEN I SING
HIS HEART BEATS STEADY
ALONE I BLEED ALONE
WHEN I SING
HIS HEART WEIGHS HEAVY

AND I SWEAR I'LL TAKE IT TO THE TOP
STRUGGLE WITH A DEEP DEPRESSION BUT I STAND MY GROUND NEVER THOUGHT I'D WAKE UP NEVER THOUGHT I'D WAKE UP
ALIVE SINGING HERE AND NOW

SENSORY OVERLOAD

Written By: JAMES FORIER

EVERYWHERE THAT I GO
I ALWAYS SEEM TO COME ACROSS
THE PAIN
AND ANYWHERE THAT I GO
I ALWAYS COME ACROSS IT
ALWAYS AND EVERYDAY
NOW THE SAD FACE IS SHOWN
I NEVER WANTED IT TO
BE THIS WAY
AND EVERYTIME I'M ALONE
I ALWAYS GET LOST INSIDE
OF MY HEAD

I GOT SOME PEACE BUT THE
PEACE GOT STOLE
I GOT SOME PEACE THE PEACE
IS SO COLD
AND I GOT NO PEACE NO MORE
AND I GOT NO MORE PEACE

YEAH MY FRIEND HE'S SO LOST
HE SPENT HIS WHOLE LIFE
SEARCHING FOR HIS PLACE
DEEP INSIDE HE'S AT WAR
BUT NOBODY CAN SEE IT
NOBODY, ANYWAY
NUMB HIS MIND TILL IT'S COLD
WE EITHER CAN RECOVER
OR ESCAPE

(CHORUS)

ALL I NEED IS A PEACEFULL SOUL
WHAT I NEED IS SOME
PEACE IN MY SOUL
I'LL NEVER SLEEP INSIDE
A TORTURED SOUL

AVENUE OF ESCAPE

Written By: JAMES FORIER

I'VE TRAVELED DOWN THIS AVENUE OF ESCAPE FOR TOO LONG
WITH EVERY TURN OF THE ROAD I CAN SEE YOU, FADING AWAY
WITH BLOODSHOT EYES A FILTERED REALITY PRESENTS ITSELF
WHERE DO WE GO NOW?
WITH ALL THESE PLACES
WHERE DO WE GO NOW?
WHAT ARE WE CHASING
WE KNOW ANYWAY THAT WE GO
ANYWAY WE GO
I'LL FIND YOU THERE I KNOW SO
FIND MY WAY BACK HOME
FIND YOU THERE I KNOW
I'VE TRAVELED DOWN THIS ROAD OF CONFUSION ALL OF MY LIFE
WITH EVERY TURN I SEARCH FOR SOME ANSWERS NO ONE HERE KNOWS
WITH BLOODSHOT EYES I WATCH AS MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS GO AWAY
(PRE-CHORUS)
(CHORUS)

MY SECOND TIME AROUND

Written By: JAMES FORIER

WHY DID YOU FORCE ME TO THINK THAT
I'D BE BETTER OFF ON MY OWN
AND WHY DID NO ONE WARN ME THAT LATELY
I'VE BEEN LIVING LIKE I JUST
DON'T GIVE A DAMN
AND WHY DO MY WORDS ALWAYS CROSS ME
THEY ALWAYS SEEM TO DO ME IN
EVERYTIME
AND I KNOW IT'S GONNA BE MY
BE MY SECOND TIME AROUND TO WIN, I'LL WIN
WHY DID YOU CUT ME OFF BEFORE
I TOLD WHAT WAS REALLY ON MY MIND
WHY DID YOU LEAVE ME INSIDE HERE
I FEEL LIKE I'M LIVING IN A METAL CAGE
AND WHY DO MY WORDS ALWAYS CROSS ME
THEY ALWAYS SEEM TO DO ME IN
EVERYTIME
AND I KNOW IT'S GONNA BE MY
BE MY SECOND TIME AROUND
TO WIN
AND ALL THOSE TIMES THAT I FAILED
ALL THOSE TIMES THAT I FAILED
WELL THEN IT FREED MY FREED MY
SECOND TIME AROUND TO WIN
YEAH, YEAH I'LL WIN
AND WHY DO MY THOUGHTS ALWAYS CROSS ME
THEY ALWAYS DO ME IN EVERYTIME
WHY DOES THE BOTTLE ALWAYS CALL ME
IT ALWAYS DOES ME IN EVERYTIME
WHY DOES THIS DARKNESS SURROUND ME
IT ALWAYS DOES ME IN EVERYTIME
(REPEAT CHORUS)

MADISON

Written By: JAMES FORIER

IN MADISON SHE SLEEPS WITH MY
HEART IN HER HANDS
IN THE HEAVENS TONIGHT
I'M FINALLY FREE
FROM THE SOUND OF HER VOICE
WE'RE ON THE PIER BY THE LAKE
BREATHING COLD SEPTEMBER AIR
THE STARS WERE OUT
THE MOON WAS FULL
AND OUR SOULS WERE IN THE AIR
AND SHE SET ME FREE, YEAH
SHE SET ME FREE
FROM A THOUSAND MILES AWAY
AND MADISON GOT INTO MY HEART
MADISON GOT INTO MY HEART
WISH THAT I WAS THERE
I WISH THAT I WAS THERE
I SPOKE TO HER THE NIGHT BEFORE
SHE SET MY MIND AT EASE
BECAUSE SHE KNOWS I GOT ENOUGH
I GOT ENOUGH INSIDE OF MY HEAD
IN MADISON SHE SLEEPS WITH MY
HEART IN HER HANDS
IN THE HEAVENS TONIGHT
I'M FINALLY FREE
FROM THE SOUND OF HER VOICE
AND SHE SET ME FREE, YEAH
SHE SET ME FREE
FROM A THOUSAND MILES AWAY
(REPEAT CHORUS)
INSIDE OF HER HEAD
YOU'LL HEAR MY VOICE
THE SOUND OF HER VOICE
IS IN MY HEAD
AND EVEN WITH THE DISTANCE
I FEEL SO CLOSE
SO MANY STORIES
INSIDE OF HER EYES
SHE SAID TO ME, YEAH
SHE SAID TO ME
FROM A THOUSAND MILES AWAY
FROM A THOUSAND MILES AWAY
FROM A THOUSAND MILES AWAY
(REPEAT CHORUS)
