    Ricochet

    RICOCHET

    Feeding your eyes with their broken lies
    Today they'll call on you for your pride
    But I've decided that I will reply
    With the voices of those who refuse to lay down and die.

    Nevermind, you can just count me out
    I choose to stay away
    I decline 'cause I'd rather live without
    The fallout from your ricochet, ricochet.

    Leading you on with their favorite song
    With them you know you can do no wrong
    But we're falling down, hard to pick up ourselves off the ground
    If we don't rise as one, we might as well come undone
    What the hell are we doing? What have we become?

    Nevermind, you can just count me out
    I choose to stay away
    I decline 'cause I'd rather live without
    The fallout from your ricochet, ricochet.

    If we don't rise as one, we might as well come undone
    What the hell are we doing? What have we become?
    Will we ever learn we can't negotiate with our blood?
    Are we all destined to burn under the sun?

    Nevermind, you can just count me out
    I choose to stay away
    I decline 'cause I'd rather live without
    The fallout from your ricochet, ricochet.

    Shatter

    3 By Design

    SHATTER

    A product of the stars and sky, far beyond what the eye can see
    Came along something so few and far between
    And build to perfection, and designed to live in perfect harmony
    But then came an anomaly.

    Then the tide changed and we drifted apart
    What was so collective must have had a change of heart
    Now we're taking sides as we lay our brother to rest
    And we'll watch our world burn until we learn to coalesce

    So let the world around you connect with you inside
    Never let the hurt surround you, let's shatter this divide.

    It's the worst kind of lie, that space between you and I.
    We'll watch our world burn, don't let our world burn.

    So let the world around you connect with you inside
    Never let the hurt surround you, let's shatter this divide.

    Waste

    WASTE

    Tell me what it's like to know everything you claim to know.
    Did it just make sense to shut me off and just let me go?
    Cut off from everything, replaced with luxury
    Left to fend for myself all on my own.

    But I thank you for leaving me to waste
    And I promise you it's made me stronger than I was just yesterday.

    Wouldn't be the first time I've had to walk this line
    I understand that this is the path I chose.
    Now in this state of mind, this is my chance to shine.
    Just in time before I decompose.

    But I thank you for leaving me to waste
    And I promise you it's made me stronger than I was just yesterday.
    Yeah I thank you for leaving me to waste
    And I promise you it's made me stronger than I was just yesterday.

    There's not a single word that you can say
    To ever bring me down
    I know I'm standing here ready to take on anything
    Anything at all, come on and bring it on.

    But I thank you for leaving me to waste
    And I promise you it's made me stronger than I was just yesterday.
    YeahI thank you for leaving me to waste
    And I promise you it's made me stronger than I was just yesterday.

    Never On Your Own

    3 By Design

    NEVER ON YOUR OWN

    Behold the shattered soul
    Just listen for a moment and maybe you will know
    Imagine waking up with this struggle in your mind
    Then you'll see there's a way to leave it all behind

    Finally we can say that we're home
    Finally we can say we'll never be alone
    Believe in yourself and you'll know that
    You're never really on your own.

    We know those battered whole
    Fighting for their lives, caught in the undertow
    How long must we wait until their troubles see their end?
    I pray to all that's good that you'd find me as your friend, because...

    Finally we can say that we're home
    Finally we can say we'll never be alone
    Believe in yourself and you'll know that
    You're never really on your own, on your own.

    'Cause we won't be beaten down
    We choose to stray strong, and always carry on
    No we won't be defeated now
    We know where we belong.

    Finally we can say that we're home
    Finally we can say we'll never be alone
    Believe in yourself and you'll know that
    You're never really on your own, on your own.

    Under The Surface

    UNDER THE SURFACE

    With the seasons crossed and the dark consumes the night
    With my bearings lost and my eyes can't find a light.

    It's alive, the same old thing that triggers me inside
    I can't hide, the things that are stirring under the surface.

    Leaving a trail of something I can call my own
    Don't bother calling me kin, I chose to live alone
    Alone in denial, in a state of something that I can't quite figure out.
    It's been a while since I could say it hasn't completely consumed me now.

    It's alive, the same old thing that triggers me inside
    I can't hide, the things that are stirring under the surface.
    Eating me alive, it's the same old thing that triggers me inside.
    I can't hide, the things that are stirring under the surface.

    (I never seem to fly, I never seem to try)

    It's alive, the same old thing that triggers me inside
    I can't hide, the things that are stirring under the surface.
    Eating me alive, it's the same old thing that triggers me inside.
    I can't hide, the things that are stirring under the surface.

    It's the reason why I never seem to fly
    When my moment comes I never seem to try.

    Shelter

    3 By Design

    SHELTER

    The rain is cold, cast out and left alone
    To tough it out on your own.
    Lie down on stone, the only place called home
    Is all we have to know.

    But they turn a shoulder and ignore
    It'll happen every time (when they're blind to our lives)
    When it's colder and it pours
    We find shelter from our plight
    They hide their eyes from our lives.

    The sun is God, when all you have it gone
    But far from forgot.
    The story you tell, you're only cry for help
    Becomes all but lost.

    But they turn a shoulder and ignore
    It'll happen every time (when they're blind to our lives)
    When it's colder and it pours
    We find shelter from our plight
    They hide their eyes from our lives.

    Hide your eyes from our lives.
    We can't take anymore.

    But they turn a shoulder and ignore
    It'll happen every time (when they're blind to our lives)
    When it's colder and it pours
    We find shelter from our plight
    Hide your eyes, hide your eyes from our lives.

    Hide your eyes, hide your eyes.
