Track Name: Final Cut
Final Cut

So what is it
When I can’t believe in anything
So what do I do
When I want to lose everything

I want to let it go now
I want to erase all we had
I want to let it go now
I want the final cut now

Oh what do I do
So I can erase everything
Oh what do I do
So I can forget everything

I want a final cut now
Come on, and speed it up now

Just let it go
Just strip it away
Oh having nothing, I don’t want to hear you say again
No, no

So what do I do
I want a final cut now
I want to be through
Get it through to all these levels now

The darkest level I have
Keeps coming out of me now
There’s a part of me that won’t lie down
And let it all die, let it all die

So what do I do
Give me the final cut now
Oh, what about you
Are you even holding the knife out

There’s a level in me
I can sink to, and I’m sinking to
There’s a level in me
I can sink to, oh I’m sinking, too

But I want to be free
I want to be free of the memories
I want to be free
I want to be free of the fantasy

There’s a part of me
I need to cut it out now
I can feel you breathe
You’ve got the final cut now

But I want to be free
Track Name: Losing Streak
Losing Streak

First you tried to pass
Wanted it to last
While you held it down
Begging to a restless one

If you had to pick
Would you choose to live with it
If you had one call
Would you let it go
And end it all

It always seems like
A losing streak
I can feel the heat
I can move and dream

First you give it up
Then you call my bluff
While I held it down
Begging for a rest to come

If I could turn away
Would I
If I could get it back
Would I
If I could change your mind
Would I
End it all

It always seems like
A losing streak
I can feel the heat
I can move and dream

Well I can feel the knife coming down
I can feel the hate mounting now
I can feel the hand coming down
I can feel the heat burning now

If you had one pick
Would you let it go or live with it
If I had one call
Would I walk away and end it all

It always seems like
A losing streak
I can feel the heat
I can move and dream

Well I can feel the knife coming down
I can feel the hate mounting now
I can feel the hand coming down
I can feel the heat burning now

And I can feel the pain in your eyes
I can see the pain in your eyes
With one look, with one look
Track Name: Bless the Best
Bless the Best

You know you heard this song before
Didn’t you
Heard it as you were walking out the door
Following you
You know you heard my voice before
Didn’t you
Think it would always speak your name

You didn’t know
That the voice would change
You didn’t know
That I would speak so many other names
You didn't know
That the voice wouldn’t stay the same
You couldn’t know, you couldn't know, you couldn't know

I’ve never wrote this song before
The feeling’s new
There was so much that I did wrong
I’m not blaming you
Maybe the worst that we had
Was just the best that we knew

I didn’t know
That the fear could change
I didn’t know
That I would learn so many other ways
I didn’t know
That the fear wouldn’t stay the same
I couldn’t know, I couldn't know, I couldn't know

Oh but you were the one
You were the one I pinned it all on
You were the one
You were the one I pinned it all on

But in a moment’s time
I get so run down
In a moment’s time
The work calls me back up again
And in another place and another time
I held you
And in another way and another place
I will be held again

So bless the best
Of us
Bless the best
We had
Bless the best
Of us
It wouldn’t help to forget that now

In another moment
We’ll be laughing out loud again
In another moment we’ll be
Laughing aloud

Laughing aloud
We’ll be laughing again all night

You wouldn’t know
You wouldn’t know
You wouldn’t know it now
Track Name: Peace
Peace

In every movement there’s a sign
In every sign there’s a reason
In every reason there’s a lie
So now we’re talking about a solution

And what we said, we know
You can’t say it—but I know

And every trap feels the same
Every escape leads to the same
Every exit is the same

Oh, we’re still talking about peace
We’re still talking about trees
We’re still talking about you and me

But every exit leads to the same
And every plan just drifts away
And every war ends this way

I’m not a fighter in the way you want me to keep fighting
I’m not a fighter in the game you want me to keep playing
I’m not a winner in the place you want me to keep going
I’m not a horizon in the place you want to keep dreaming of

Everyone is talking about magic
Everyone is talking about power
Everyone is talking about oxygen

I can feel the power
Let me feel the power
Let me be the power
Let me be all the peaceful power

Is that what it takes
Track Name: The Might
The Might

You’ve died a million times
Right there before my eyes
Notion that’s on my mind
Trade places with the light

Who thought it’d be like that
Stripped down and cut in half
Shot like a burning arrow
Straight up into the night

You tried a million times
Right there before my eyes
Imagine something better
Trade places with the might

Hoped it could stay like that
Hoped it would resurface
But I hear the echo first
Before I even hear the words

Some things you leave
Some things you grieve
In time, I’ll let the light back in
But this time, you let the might win
