OUR CODE

How long 
How long 
We shut out the sun 
Paralyzed and 
Barely surviving 

Far gone 
Far gone 
Our nerves overrun 
Compromised and 

This is all we’ve ever known 
All we’ve ever known 
Hidden in our code 
Carved deep into the bone 

All we’ve ever known 
Soaked into our clothes 
And carried down the road 
Carried down the road 

How far 
How far 
We stay in our lane 

Captivated 
Colors faded 

Face down 
Face down 
Surrounded in chains 
Barricaded 

This is all we’ve ever known 
All we’ve ever known 
Hidden in our code 
Carved deep into the bone 

All we’ve ever known 
Soaked into our clothes 
And carried down the road 

In a place between 
What is real 
And what it seems 

To the naked eye 
Layers pealed 
Unlock this dream 

Is this all we’ve ever known 
Is this all we’ve ever known 
Is this all we’ve ever known 

We’ve ever known 
All we’ve ever known 
Hidden in our code 
Carved deep into the bone 
Deep into the bone 

All we’ve ever known 
Soaked into our clothes 
And carried down the road 
Carried down the road 

This is all we’ve ever known 
This is all we’ve ever known

HOLD ON

 

Listen to my intuition 
I belong with you 
reaching for a destination 
Only find it with you 
Tearing down the walls 
These borders must fall 
So we can hold onSo we can hold on 
As we face the cold dark dead of night 
We can hold on 
For the rise of another sun 
We can hold on 
To what we have 
And who we are this place in time 
We can hold on 
We can hold onResistance to my inhibition 
That would keep us apart 
Persistence through the opposition 
They won’t keep us apart 
Tearing down the walls 
These borders must fall 
So we can hold onSo we can hold on 
As we face the cold dark dead of night 
We can hold on 
For the rise of another sun 
We can hold on 
To what we have 
And who we are this place in timeWhen bitter cold comes rushing by 
And wraps around your mind 
Don’t be afraid, for what we have 
will stand the test of time 
Don’t be afraid, for what we have 
will stand the test of timeWe can hold on 
As we face the cold dark dead of night 
We can hold on 
For the rise of another sun 
We can hold on 
To what we have 
And who we are this place in time 
We can hold on 
As we face the cold dark dead of night 
We can hold on 
For the rise of another sun 
We can hold on 
To what we have 
And who we are this place in time

EVIDENT DESTINATION
 

Losing a lifetime 
Drifting through unknown terrain 
Woke by the daylight 
A stranger in your own domain 

No evident destination 
No evident destination 

Reaching the end of the road 
That’s when you know 
That’s when you know 

Reaching the end of the road 
That’s when you know 
That’s when you know 

Followed a roadmap 
Drawn up for someone else to trace 
Held it in your grasp 
Just in time to watch it melt away 

No evident destination 
No evident destination 

Reaching the end of the road 
That’s when you know 
That’s when you know 

Reaching the end of the road 
That’s when you know 
That’s when you know 

Looking through the haze 
Not all who wander are lost 
Not all who wander are lost 
(Not all who wander are lost) 

Cutting through the noise 
Not all who wander are lost 
Not all who wander are lost 
Not all who wander 
(Not all who wander) 
(Not all who wander)

WHAT YOU NEED TO  SAY

Knocking at the door 
Of an empty room 
What you see inside 
An optical illusion 

Lies that you adore 
Why you so consumed 
Preying I abide 
Your mystical delusion 

You keep on pulling 
But who you fooling 
These roots are torn from shallow ground 

Say what you need to say 
But when all is said 
You don’t even know me 
 

See what you need to see 
Up inside your head 
You don’t even know me 
Be who you need to be 
I won’t be misled 
You know you don’t own me 
Stay where you need to stay 
Where you can pretend 
'Cause you don’t even know me 

Spitting poison words 
As I walk away 
Deep within your bones 
Lives a cold and icy winter 

Selling your concern 
Is the game you play 
Casting hoarded stones 
At the man inside the mirror 

You keep on pushing 
This dream you chasing  
These roots are torn from shallow ground 

Say what you need to say 
But when all is said 
You don’t even know me 

See what you need to see 
Up inside your head 
You don’t even know me 

Be who you need to be 
I won’t be misled 
You know you don’t own me 
Stay where you need to stay 
Where you can pretend 
You don’t know me 

So foolish to presume 
I’m selfish I’m not giving in to you 
I’m not giving into you 

So foolish to presume 
I’m selfish I’m not giving in to you 
I’m not giving into you 
I'm not giving in 
I'm not giving into you 
No no no no 

I'm not giving in to you 
I'm not giving in to you so say 
What you need to say, when all is said 
You don't even know me 

See what you need to see, inside your head 
You don't even know 
Who you need to be, I won't be mislead 
You know you don't own me 

Stay, where you need to stay, where you can pretend 
You don't even 
Don't even know me 
You don't even know me 
You don't even know me 
You don't even know me 
La ah da ah da ah da ah la

TRIBE OF GODS

We don’t seem to recognize it 
We’re divided 
To believe we keep pretending 
True confession 

So much easier to remain 
Stay the same 
It’s the same old game 

Time to play this a different way 
Different way  

So it doesn’t matter who you are 
We’re created, from the same star 
When you open up your heart 
You will see us, not so far apart 

Separatism will deceive 
We are tainted, by what we conceive  
Now we’re setting free 
What we believe 

If you see past the horizon 
We’re united 
Live the dream that was intended 
Without question 

Could be easier to retrace, the mistakes 
and embrace 
No more shame   

Time to play this a better way 
Play a better way 
Better way 

So it doesn’t matter who you are 
We’re created, from the same star 
When you open up your heart 
You will see us, not so far apart 
Separatism will deceive 
We're forsaken, by what we conceive  

Now we’re setting free 
What we believe 

Setting freeeeee . . . 
What we believeeeeee . . . 
Setting freeeeee. . . 

So it doesn’t matter who you are 
We’re created, by the same star 
When you open up your heart 
You will see us, not so far apart 

Separatism will deceive 
We're forsaken, by what we conceive  
Now we’re setting free 
What we believe
