Moving Forward

Recorded at Minx Recording Studio (Toledo, OH)
Engineered, Mixed and Mastered by Mat Halliday

SONGS & LYRICS
1. Eternal Rest
No Lyrics
2. Abandoned
I lie awake at night and wonder
What did I do to you
What makes you think that I deserve this
And how do I get through

[Chorus]
That you have abandoned me for the last time
There’s nothing that you can do
Don’t tell me that everything will be fine
There is no believing you

You try to thumb through all the pages
There’s always a point you miss
I ignored the flaw at first but now I know
There is no ignoring this

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
Lowering my self esteem
Is your new specialty
Being awake in a dream
Is the only escape for me

You have abandoned me for the last time
There’s nothing that you can do
Don’t tell me that everything will be fine
There is no believing...

You have abandoned me for the last time
There’s nothing that you can do
Don’t tell me that everything will be fine
There is no believing you

There is no believing
You have abandoned me
Abandoned me
Abandoned me
3. Taken
The pieces are shattered now
To never return
And the form that once was
Has been left behind and you
You feel it starting again
This kind of hurt never ends
Its only shrinking away
To grow back again and

You have taken from me
What I can’t get back again
Thrown it all away
And I have to start all over now
And this was a waste of everything we built in vain

Don’t act like we never had
Anything
That wasn’t worth saving
You just gave up
And I
I never meant to restrain
This is hard to explain
You never saw the real me
It was locked away ‘cause

You have taken from me
What I can’t get back again
Thrown it all away
And I have to start all over now
And this was a waste of everything we had
And you have pushed me away
So I can’t go back again
Lied to my face
And I cannot bring it back somehow
So this was a waste of everything we built in vain

TAKE!

You take away
You take from me
4. Evolve
You can only blame your failures
On everyone else so many times
Before, you start to question
If you are the problem
You must evolve, Whoa

I’ve noticed my history, my past
Repeats itself
Events stay the same
The change occurs when I behave differently
To the same recurring events

[Chorus]
The problem was me
Now I will be changing
To better my chance at feeling alive
Now I will fight
Against these habits
And realize I
Can still survive

Now I need
To be patient
And wait for the changes in me
I’ll wait

I wont allow you into my mind
You can go through the same things that I had to

[Chorus]
5. Let You Down
Flat out, I work too hard at this
Calling for bliss. Never seem to get out
And I pull myself apart
Wondering why I started this... at all
Lift myself up just to fall
And break my limbs again

[Chorus]
Try as we may, we’re going nowhere, going no
We lead the same, the same struggling lives
But we’re blown in the wind, blown in the

Now that you’ve listened to me
Do I make any sense to you?
In your heart and your mind... you know
I did my best to carry you
But I was not strong… but I was not strong
Enough

[Chorus]

And all we can hear is the sound
Of our hearts crashing to the ground
My hands are shaking out of control
I’m sorry I let you down

Sorry I let you down

Ohhhh oh oh
La da da da

Let you down
I'm sorry
I'm sorry

[Chorus]

Now that you’ve listened to me
Do I make any sense to you?
I’m sorry I let you down
6. The Road
The road is the only place I feel any comfort at all
I’m not running away, in fact I’m chasing after something that is gone

[Chorus]
Synthetic feelings are all I have, all I know
Not even close to the real thing I choke it back, but the numbness grows

I’m so detached from this body, it's like it's not even mine
The original make has been replaced from damaged parts of my heart

[Chorus]

Oh

[Chorus]

[Chorus]
7. Behind Your Beauty
Can someone tell me
What game are we playing
I don’t seem to know the rules
Do you just make it up
As you go along
So I’m left to be your fool

All the while
The masses stand before you
They cry out
You're beautiful

[Chorus]
Why do I love you
Your face is murder
Now I’m forced to be alone again
So here in darkness
I cry out for you
But it's clear that you’re not listening

I'm fully aware
Of your illusion
You’re hiding your weaknesses
And Since I know
That you’re a fake
Why do I fall for it

All the while
The masses crawl out to you
They don’t see what a monster you are

[Chorus]

It hides behind your eyes
You keep it where they won’t see
What kind of monster you are
Behind your beauty

[Chorus]

Why do I fall
When I know it’s a lie
Why do I fall
Every time
8. Fall In Line
This situation right from the beginning
Was never really what i was planning
If you decide to heed what they are saying
Then I am going to leave you standing

(Chorus)
No! Don't slow me
I've learned enough to never fall behind
No! Don't stop me
I shouldn't have to walk a fine line

If you want to just keep on pretending
As if this never was really happening
I will move on and surpass this mindless thinking
You follow them but they're all dying

(Chorus)
Fall in line, Oh!

No! Don't slow me
No! Don't stop me
Fall in line (whoa)
Fall in line (whoa)

If you decide to follow them into a certain early grave
I will leave you all behind
I will leave you all behind
9. Hero In The Dark
Sometimes it's so easy to fade into the shadows
I let it leave me empty, faded, alone

Pull me out
And see me shining

I was the hero in the dark
I fought for so long to make my mark
But that mark will fade

Away

Sometimes it's so hard to pull you from the shadows
Don’t let it leave you empty, jaded, hollow

I pull you out
They see you shining

I was the hero in the dark
I fought for so long to make my mark
Now that mark won’t fade

You will keep it alive, keep it alive, keep it alive.

Constantly fighting to keep on believing
I will continue to push through this feeling
Kill all the doubts that have constantly plagued me
The battle is won in your head

I was the hero in the dark
I fought for so long to make my mark
Now that mark won’t fade away
You will keep it alive
Keep it alive, keep it alive
10. Moving Forward
When moving forward is the hardest part
of letting go to find a new start
I try to hold on, but I know that it's gone
We have to find power on our own

You can be anything you have to be
All you need is inside of your heart and soul

[Chorus]
You will not break
although they'll try
to tear the light out of your eyes
They don’t understand
how you survive
They're scared of the burning inside

The pain is gone
along with the lies
You'll find your own way
all in good time
We have to move on , we've been down for too long
Living for the good is never wrong

You are the maker of all your own endings
For every consequence there is a cause

[Chorus]

After everything that's happened
it still creeps in
I don’t know why I think about it
I don’t want it around

This is the last time you will see me standing broken
This is the last time you will bring me to my knees
Now is the first time that I see why I don’t need you
Now is the first time that I see why this is wrong
