The Dive

Steady as she goes.

Uh-oh...oh, no.

Now I don't even know what's going on.

The foundation is crumbling down below

and I've got nothing to show

and however it may seem so improbable.

The timing is optimal.

Are we ready? Are we ready? Here we go!

 

I hold my breath and take the dive.

It's only then that I'll learn to get better.

If I survive, I'd be surprised

and now the voice in my head is telling me

"Don't fight it. Please, just try it.

Why all the lies and disguises that'll get us nowhere?"

I'm hoping this can make things right.

Light as a feather, I'm taking the dive.

 

Captain of the soul.

Row! Go!

The tidal wave'll throw us overboard.

Hanging on to the jagged edge of all we know.

Calamity undertow.

Dragging down 'til we're ragged and emotional

but progress is possible.

Are we ready? Are we ready? Here we go!

 

I hold my breath and take the dive.

It's only then that I'll learn to get better.

If I survive, I'd be surprised 

and now the voice in my head is telling me

"Don't fight it. Please, just try it.

Why all the lies and disguises that'll get us nowhere?" 

I'm hoping this can make things right.

Light as a feather, I'm taking the dive.

Light as a feather, I'm taking the dive.

As Part Of Me

A gust of wind upon my chest,
I aim to do my best
for Earth and all inhabitants.
Have you heard
the shit that's happening is absurd?
Misinformation is the key
that's pitting you and me and them
against each other
when you're my sister and lover
my brother and my friend.

If I ever fall astray,
could you communicate?
Well, this happens all the time (all the time)
And it may not be too late,
but I still count on you.

In love and life, you have to give.
Oh, I can learn from this
and throw away my selfishness.
We all know
It isn't as effortless to do.
The cost of lying to ourselves
becomes much greater than the gain;

it's overshadowed
and what matters is shattered,
battered by the bend

If I ever fall astray
could you communicate?
Well, this happens all the time (all the time)
And it may not be too late,
But I still count on you.

As I reach out and touch the sky,
you know that I will always love you.
Please help me free my mind
from the binds that shackle down
as part of me hates you feel so far away.
Come on, please return.

Well I still count on you
to pick me up
and dust me off.
Send me on my way.

Be, More

We find it necessary
to gather up our things and GTFO.
The consequences are so scary if we stay
so we've gotta get up to go.

And I will try,
but I might go slow.

Struggling hard to find a place where
we can both lay our heads and call a home.
Don't wanna be a disgrace here.
Do you have the patience to see me through?

And I will try,
but I might go
slower than you wanted

Get up
and rise up.
Set fire to your soul,
hotter than ever before.
Get higher.
This empire requires prior knowledge
of who you were, then, love.

I seem to have caught you by surprise.
Didn't think I'd pull this one out of thin air.
It took a while, but now we realize
we were scared
with nothing there to compare.

And I'll contrive
but I might go
slower than you wanted.

Get up
and rise up.
Set fire to your soul,
hotter than ever before.
Get higher.
This empire requires prior knowledge
of who you were, then
so you can be, more.

You can be, more
You can be, more
You can be, more
You can be, more

Get up, rise up
hotter, brighter
This empire will require
some prior knowledge of
who you were before
So you can be, more
than the limits pre-imposed.

Get up
and rise up.
Set fire to your soul,
hotter than ever before.
Get higher.
This empire requires prior knowledge
of who you were, then
so you can be, more.

Golden

Know that I love you,
I praise the heavens above us
I would never have gotten up off the floor
But you brought me up.
I would be lying
down in the gutter
and crying,
but you were there for me
and now I know
it's true.

With your help, I lift myself much higher than...
Higher than I was before.

Stay.
I couldn't prepare for your absence,
it brings me to madness
Faith in your help,
I know I'm gold.
Stay.
I couldn't prepare for your absence,
it brings me to madness.
And with your help,
Oh, nothing else will take its toll.

Sever the pressure.
I swear I'll never surrender.
Take on whatever the weather,
come through much better than ever.
If I disappoint you,
allow me to make a point
to redeem myself
because I know that it's so true.

With your help, I lift myself much higher than...
Higher than I was before

Stay.
I couldn't prepare for your absence,
it brings me to madness.
Faith in your help,
I know I'm gold.
Stay.
I couldn't prepare for your absence,
it brings me to madness.
And with your help,
Oh, nothing else will take its toll.

Nothing else will take its toll.
With your help, I know I'm gold.

Bond

A chasm grows
much farther, wider, deeper
here before me.
If I can't garner fight,
the fear will eat me whole.
I step up to the edge
and then breathe in.
A fall from there would end
with harrow in my heart.
I should've known
right from the start.
I'm tearing me apart

My heart is racing scared.
I feel so unprepared.
It's hard and I can't see
what's on the other side.
It's typical:
we break and remold,
you shake
and I hold you close.
We finally try to see the light
to cross this great divide.

The problem is
I want to do so much more than I can
with all the time and resources available at hand,
that in the face of demons deadly
screaming,
"I am dreaming,"
not believing
I object.
Because it hasn't happened yet.
What do I expect?

My heart is racing scared.
I feel so unprepared.
It's hard and I can't see 
what's on the other side.
It's typical:
we break and remold,
you shake
and I hold you close.
We finally try to see the light
across the great divide.

My heart is racing
and I'm pacing scared.
Is this the truth that I've been searching all along for?
My cards are facing up,
I'm giving in to you.
In these final moments,
we're one component.

Heart is racing scared.
I feel so unprepared.
But what if I can't see you on the other side?
It's typical:
we break and remold
when you shake and I hold you close.
We finally try to see the light
and cross this great divide.

Invincible

Wake up, wake up, wake up.
Open your eyes.
Open your eyes, my friend.
We've been asleep for far too long.
Stand up and face the world.
Open up our hearts
and show the earth the value of love.
We've been asleep
for far too long.

And everyone is uncertain where the burden will fall.
Just know that I am happy with you by my side.
And as a chaos impends, we'll defend with our all.
There's nothing left to fear because I have you here.

Whoa,
there's one thing I know.
Hold my hand, I know that we can make it.
Victory is there, I'm sure that we can take it.
Whoa,
we're invincible.
Hold on tight, this feeling is unmistaken,
that nothing is impossible now.

There's nothing impossible
because we're invincible.

Well, I said
wake up, wake up, wake up.
Open your eyes.
Open your eyes, my friend.
The walls will crumble as we march on.
There's so much left to learn.
Open up our hearts
and show the earth the value of love.
We've been asleep
for far too long.

When everyone is uncertain where the burden will fall,
just know that I am happy with you by my side.
Chaos impends.
We'll defend with our all.
There's nothing left to fear
because I have you here.

Whoa,
there's one thing I know.
Hold my hand, I know that we can make it.
Victory is there, I'm sure that we can take it.
Whoa,
we're invincible.
Hold on tight, this feeling is unmistaken,
that nothing is impossible now.

Nothing...
Nothing is impossible
because we're invincible.

I've got nothing to hide,
everything that's inside
has brought me to a point where I can see
that there's nothing to fear
because you're here with me.

Whoa,
there's one thing I know.
Hold my hand, I know that we can make it.
Victory is there, I'm sure that we can take it.
Whoa,
we're invincible.
Hold on tight, this feeling is unmistaken,
that nothing is impossible now.

(This Is Not) The End

It's my time,
and high time we did something about our lives here.
It's comfortable
but no,
there's so much more.
I fear that, my dear,
as we live on, we're losing the battle.
But if we fight,
I know
we'll win the war.

Oh, this is not The End.
I know you're tired and you wanna give in,
and I will not pretend that I know what will happen from here.

I couldn't keep my eyes open.
Oh, I would have changed what I'd done, 
but that's not how it happens.
You've got to take action.
I'll speak these words unspoken.
Maybe we can change the world.
Why not
just start over on a new foot?
Don't you fret, 'cause this is not
The End.

Woo!

Our passions are clashing,
we need a sense of unity.
'Cause if we don't act now,
we'll lose the rug under our feet.
Sweet defeat...

This is not The End.
I know you're tired and you wanna give in,
and I will not pretend that I know what will happen from here.
If we could truly see,
I believe
that we could be better human beings.
No, it is not too late,
but we can't wait to recreate our fate.

I couldn't keep my eyes open.
Oh, I would have changed what I'd done, 
but that's not how it happens.
You've got to take action.
I'll speak these words unspoken.
Maybe we can change the world.
Why not
just start over on a new foot?
Don't you fret, 'cause this is not 
The End.


This is not The End.
You know you're still my friend.
This is not The End.
We'll make this home again.

I couldn't keep my eyes open.
Oh, I would have changed what I'd done, 
but that's not how it happens.
You've got to take action.
