lyrics

push comes to shove
Tomorrow's unknown danger comes to town
Will you let it drag and pull you down?
Or will you stand and fight?
Push back with all your might?
Or are you leaving on a plane tonight?

The world spins around
And it's pushing me down
And I can't roll any faster
When push comes to shove
Are you showing the love?
This world's a disaster
But we serve a different master


Integrity's a thing that's been forgotten
Underneath our smiles we all are rotten
Why should I even try
To look you in the eye
When everything I'm hearing is a lie?

The world spins around
And it's pushing me down
And I can't roll any faster
When push comes to shove
Are you showing the love?
This world's a disaster
But we serve a different master
This world is a bastard
But we serve a different master


This world's what you give not what you take
Any other thinking is a mistake
Stand tall and shine your light
And overtake the night
And when you can't hold on with all your might

The world spins around
And I'm starting to drown
And I can't swim any faster
When push comes to shove
Are you showing the love?
This world's a disaster
But we serve a different master
This world is a bastard
But we serve a different master
maybe tomorrow
Maybe tomorrow, but probably never
Maybe tomorrow, but more likely not
Maybe tomorrow, you'll get it together
Maybe tomorrow is the one hope you've got


This world we live in
Oh you just give in
Push it off and you shut it down
Boy when you gonna come around?

This world we live in
It's just like East Berlin
With walls so high and your freedom gone away
So you'll just die another death today

Maybe tomorrow, but probably never
Maybe tomorrow, but more likely not
Maybe tomorrow, you'll get it together
Maybe tomorrow is the one hope you've got


This world you've created
Is so ill-fated
External forces pull you down
Assault you 'til you run aground

This world you've created
You're so deflated
You want to change but instead you turn away
So you'll just die another death today

Maybe tomorrow, but probably never
Maybe tomorrow, but more likely not
Maybe tomorrow, you'll get it together
Maybe tomorrow is the best hope you've got


You're just wasting time
You keep on wasting my time

Maybe tomorrow, but probably never
Maybe tomorrow, but more likely not
Maybe tomorrow, there's a change in the weather
Maybe tomorrow you'll be calling your shot

Maybe tomorrow, but probably never
Maybe tomorrow, though more likely not
Maybe tomorrow, there's a change in the weather
Maybe tomorrow we'll be changing the plot

Maybe tomorrow, but probably never
Maybe tomorrow, though probably not
Exodus
I'm leaving now
I'm leaving now


Don't look back
Say goodbye
Don't shake hands
Or even try
Just go forth
Just press on
Hide the tears
Hide the scorn

I'm leaving now
I'm leaving now


Don't look back
You might turn to salt
Anger's strong
'Cause it's not your fault
Just go forth
Just press on
Hide the tears
Hide the scorn

I'm leaving now
I'm leaving now


Don't look back
As you say goodbye
Don't make peace
Or even try
Just go forth
Just press on
Hide the tears
You better hide the scorn
To The Core
You were always there
You were always the one I could count on
When the days were long
When the nights were longer

You were my best friend
That was solid 'til the end
My love for you was strong
But yours was always stronger

Now I don't see you and it hurts me
To the core
That doesn't mean I won't have your love
Forevermore.
Forevermore.


You would always run
But you would never stray far from me
You would always wait
Seemed that you were always waiting

Now I don't see you and it hurts me
To the core
That doesn't mean I won't have your love
Forevermore.
Forevermore.


Let your love reign down on me.
Let your love reign down on me.

Now I don't see you and it hurts me
To the core
That doesn't mean I won't have your love
Forevermore.
Forevermore.

Now I don't see you and it hurts me
To the core
Forevermore.
Forevermore.
CRUEL ODYSSEY
I drive across an endless desert,
Towards mountains which I see clearly
But they don't get any closer
They never get any closer to me

The sun beats down
The nights grow colder

Impersonal road signs mark my way
Landmarks appear but then quickly recede
Just like i do every morning
I continue this cruel, cruel odyssey

The road gets rough,
Then my motor struggles
Through the harsh terrain
Mocking my disdain

This is no warning,
It's no SOS
It's no cry for help
There will be no success
There are promises made that I'm intending to keep
And miles to go before I can sleep
Many miles to go before I can sleep


Warning lights decorate my dashboard
My fuel gauge still hovers on empty
But I continue to roll on
I continue my cruel, cruel odyssey
My boggled mind
It toggles time
Three times what's behind me
Still lies ahead

This is no warning,
It's no SOS
It's no cry for help
There will be no success
There are promises made that I'm intending to keep
And miles to go before I can sleep
Many miles to go before I can sleep

This is no warning,
It's no SOS
It's no cry for help
Though you can see my distress
There are promises made that I'm intending to keep
And miles to go before I can sleep
Many miles to go before I can sleep
The Price You Paid
Some days are long and my hope wears thin
On my own, I can't shake my sin
No matter what I do or say
When I'm close to You or when I go astray

I say I love You madly
I say I love you madly

A man was born, he lived, he died
Then he rose again
And I'll tell you why
Upon that cross He bore all our sin
And heaven knows I've got a lot within

I say I love You madly
But then I act so badly

And I know the price that You paid is real
'Cause You know my heart and the things I feel
That's why I know the price that You paid
Is so real
Is so real
It's so real


So listen people and I'll tell you a tale
It's the only way that we can prevail
I've seen His cross now it's mine to bear
His joy and hope I will gladly share

That you might love Him madly
Lord we need you badly

And I know the price that You paid is real
'Cause You know my heart and the things I feel
That's why I know the price that You paid
Is so real
Is so real
It's so real
Ignite. Rewrite. Take Flight.
There are the times when life gets stagnate
Try forging ahead
But your past is a magnet
What's holding you back?
It's pulling you in
Or it's pulling you under
Stand tall make that change

Say it's my life
I'm gonna change my life
No more waiting around holding tight
Ignite. Rewrite. Take flight.


You can't sit and wait
It's not just gonna happen
So let's get to work
Grab your boots
Grab your map and go
Not too slow
The days may be long
And the pain may be strong
Sometimes you're running uphill

Say it's my life
I'm gonna change my life
No more waiting around holding tight
Ignite. Rewrite. Take flight.


If we never look inside
How can we grow?
Where will we go?
Until we take a look around
We don't know.

I just don't know.

Say it's my life
I'm gonna change my life
No more hiding away out of sight
Ignite. Rewrite. Take flight.
Take A Walk Outside
Let me take a walk outside with you
Let me hear the answer that is due
If you can let a villain in your heart
Then you'll never want to be a part

Let me take a walk outside with you
Take my hand you know my heart is true
If you can let a villain in your heart
Then you'll never want to be apart
Marion
Marion sits and she waits on her bed
And she battles the voices inside of her head
She sits and she waits
'Til she cannot recall
Why she's waiting

She looks over to me through her watery eyes
And then she begins to apologize
She knows its my face,
But she cannot recall
Where she's seen it

And the day turns into night
And the night turns into day
Right before my very eyes
She slowly fades away


All of the things that she's trying to say
And all the emotions she's trying to display
They get lost or get changed
Or deranged
When they're leaving her body

So she sits in her room
And she stares at the walls
And once in awhile she'll walk through the halls
But they seem like a maze
When you don't really know where you're going
And you've nowhere to get to

And the days turn into weeks
And the months roll into years
Right before my very eyes
She slowly disappears


Losing your life one day at a time
Is a hell of a sentence
She committed no crime
Well her memory's gone
But her body it just keeps on going

But it's not that she's totally lost in a dream
Once in awhile you can hear her scream
"I'm alive! I'm alive!
But I don't even know why I'm living.
Will somebody tell me?"

"Why the day turns into night
And then night turns into day
Right before my very eyes
It all slowly fades away


She keeps waiting for tomorrow to let go
She keeps waiting for tomorrow to let go
Why she's waiting for tomorrow
I don't know
I just don't know
Tomorrow Never Comes
Cry. Don't Cry. It only make him happy.
Why oh why does he change like this?
Overnight he became unhappy
Now it's his fight and you're gonna lose

You've tried but you can't make it
Will you wait until the end of time?
You've tried but you can't fake it
Will you wait until the end of time?
Is it time? For you to ...

Go now. Leave today and not tomorrow
Go now. And when you go there'll be no sorrow
Go now. Tomorrow never comes
You've got to go now


Life's unfair and only you can change it
When it's your game you can make the rule
Be aware that it won't be easy
But neither is being made a fool

You've tried but you can't make it
Will you wait until the end of time?
You've tried but you can't fake it
Will you wait until the end of time?
Is it time? For you to ...

Go now. Leave today and not tomorrow
Go now. And when you go there'll be no sorrow
Go now. Tomorrow never comes
You've got to go now


And where you go there will be no more pain
You can't continually wait for tomorrow
And you can't ever expect him to change

Go now. Leave today and not tomorrow
Go now. And when you go there'll be no sorrow
Go now. Because what you see is wrong
Go now. Tomorrow never comes
You've got to go now
runnin' outta time
Close the windows draw my blinds
You can't see me
You can't tell what's on my mind
If you can't see me
We're all different that I know
I don't have to like it though

I think I'm Runnin' Outta Time

Pakistan and Indonesia
Where the hell is Indonesia?
I can't help my fellow man
If he won't let me
How can I do all I can
If you might hurt me?

I think I'm Runnin' Outta Time

There's no time I'll do it later
Call me back I'll do it later
Not now son, I'll do it later

Can't you see that I'm Runnin' Outta Time?

The end is coming help us please
Can you hear me?
Pestilence, death, and disease
Did you hear me?
When you're coming we don't know
Today? Tomorrow?
I think you better hurry though
And end this sorrow

Can't you see? Can't you see?
That I'm Runnin' Outta Time?
new hole in my soul
We walked away
But it won't end today
Down deep inside
Disbelief, distrust, dismay

Although we've grown
It's still the same unknown
But this time we thought
That His truth would be shown

There's a new hole in my soul
And i feel so incomplete
Will we spin out of control
If we see our past repeat?


And on it goes
Dressed in their off-white clothes
But the saddest part
Is that everybody knows

Can't say I've learned
But won't say I've been burned
I'll just dim the light
As the final page is turned

There's a new hole in my soul
And i feel so incomplete
Will we spin out of control
If we see our past repeat?


What have we learned?
What have we learned?

There's a new hole in my soul
And i feel so incomplete
Will we spin out of control
If we see our past repeat?
