about

Grey

As time goes by
The colors fade away
Everything turns a different shades of grey

Nothing is black or white
Nothing is wrong or right
Day or night or worth the fight

Grey
Everything turns grey
It's all grey
Every word you say
Every game you play
It’s all grey

Just open your eyes
Terms and conditions may apply
Read between the lines
The truth beneath the lies

It’s more than meets the eye
It's all there in black and white
As plain as day
In the different shades of

Grey
Everything turns grey
It's all grey
Every word you say
Every game you play
It’s all grey

Track Name: Falling Awake
Falling Awake

Wake up everyone it’s time to use your heads
Turn off the TV and listen with your hearts
There’s a bandwagon waiting to take your mind
Question everything it’s our job to ask why

Somnambule citizens forming up inline
Questioning nothing, no meaning to our lives
We the people asleep for so long
Giving up our human rights.

Prices rising, guess who’s picking up the cost
Get behind the wheel, we’re being taken for a ride
Should we trust a promise given by a snake?
We get nothing given. Everything’s a stake

Awake the citizens breaking from the line
Questioning everything found reason to their lives
We the people stand up to anything
Who will take our human rights

I’m falling awake
Youre falling awake
We’re all awake

Somnambule citizens forming up inline
Questioning nothing, no meaning to our lives
We the people asleep for so long
Giving up our human rights.

Awake the citizens breaking from the line
Questioning everything found reason to their lives
We the people stand up to anything
Who will take our human rights
Track Name: Down
Down

Winds of change are blowing
Anywhere but home
Leading me down a road
I've never been before

Blank and staring faces
Welcome me to what end
Lead me to a darkened place
Down a path to the unknown

Taking the wrong turns
Opening the wrong doors
Turning the wrong corners
Have I been down here before?

There's no guiding light
Just endless paths to lose my way
Moving forward brings me back
I will find my own way

I don't want to go, I don't want to go
Down this way
Down this life
I don't want to go, I don't want to go
I don’t want to go down

Heading down the beaten path
Going nowhere fast
The same familiar places
The same vacant faces

I will find my own fate
They won't bring me down
A new step, a new day
I will find my way home

It keeps bringing me Down
It keeps dragging me Down
Life keeps letting me Down
I swear I've been down here before...
Track Name: Ashes
Ashes

What is said is said
What is done is done
Time is flying by
I hope you’re having fun

As the world burns
All that remains
Are ashes in the wind

What is lost is lost
What is won is won
The fires of time are burning
They’re not going to stop

As the world burns
All that remains
Are ashes in the wind

Ashes blowing in the wind
The end is closing in
Footprints in the dust
of the life we leave behind

It won’t matter anyway
So let us seize the day
Let’s no longer grieve
Let’s go dance into our graves

The Past is far behind
It has come and gone
It’s about time
To be moving on

Slipping through your fingers
Are the ashes in the wind
