Human Nature | Lyrics

Human Nature
(Hess / Lesperance)

Souls have lost their way
Looking to hide a dark side
Every time we look inside
The lines are drawn in vein
In your mind
It's alright
We're all the same
Everyday day we're

Trying to outrun
The demon's we've become
It's something that we'll never change

It's only human nature
that could tear us apart
it's only human nature
to write the ending before the start

Here in the hands of fate
Without a rhyme or reason
We see the signs
We decide to look the other way
And live in a lie
It's alright we're all the same
Everyday we're

Everyday we're trying to fight
Who we are
But in the end it doesn't matter at all

Next Time Around
(Hess / Lesperance)

Nothing can compare
To our state of affairs
Was it all a lie
With our love in repair
I commit emotional suicide

So I'm on the run
And you'll become
A faded memory

Next time around
No you won't see me
Next time around
There will never be a
Next time around

Half a million tries
And zero compromise
Leading to the end
Oh I'm jumping off the ride
And writing my goodbye's
In a letter yeah

Caught Up In Your World
(Hess / Lesperance)

You have a way of fighting
Everything I do
And all your finger pointing
Is pointing back
Right back to you

Don't cha give me reasons
Don't cha give me lies
Just give me the truth and let me decide

You're so far away
I can't reach you

Caught up in your world
I won't ever learn
It's hard to stay but hard to leave you
I don't get enough
But I won't give you up
It's hard to stay or walk away

Maybe I've been mistaken
Maybe I've been deceived
I'm lying next to a stranger
We're incomplete
Yeah you and me

Reality
(Hess / Lesperance)

Unaware is turning into full denial
I don't care I'm dragging it another mile

If happiness is no regret
I'm living the dream

Reality
Is in between your head and heart
We never see the writing on the wall
The enemy is the ticking of the clock
We never see the writing on the wall

Times have changed
We're losing all control in life
Running scared
Trying to find the other side

Hanging On
(Hess)

If you go
If you'll stay
Has become a mystery

Have you found what you need
What's the voice inside your head saying

I don't know what your thinking
Or what's up or down
The highs and lows tend
To shake me off solid ground

I'm hanging on to promises
Never meant for me
I want hold you to your word

Empty vows empty dreams
Somehow ignored so faithfully
How do we know where we stand
Can't leave it all to circumstance

I haven't felt it in a long time
I invented it in my mind
It's blind leading the blind
In this storm till every hope is gone

Don't Throw It Away
(Hess / Lesperance / Doane)

We live in a world where delusion and apathy rule
It’s so contagious I think that I’m getting it too.

Your conscience surrenders
It’s all yours to lose

Blind to a miracle
Time is invisible
It’s ticking away another day
We take it for granted
Don’t throw it away

Blind to a miracle
Has life made you cynical
It’s ticking away another day
We take it for granted
Don’t throw it away

Running in circles you’re not really moving at all
You think that your climbing you’ve already taken the fall

Give Love/Get Love
(Hess)

When life is coming to the end
I want nothing to regret
Like a sinner forgiven
Solitude confines me
My prison won't hold me long
Cuz I know how to leave

Give love / get love
You'll only find greed destroys you
Give love / get love
There's more to life waiting for you
Give love / get love
Will glorify fame and fortune
Give love / get love
There's really something in it for you

I know it's hard to see through the rain
but somehow the sun finds you again

First you find the one
Then love will find a way
To open up the door
To meaning from a higher place
It's all out living for today
Clear skies never go away
Cuz love is here to stay

21
(Hess / Lesperance)

Ya can't stand to loose
But it's all you ever do
Your past follows you
Like skin and old tattoos

Living is constant fight
Tell me you're not worth saving
Maybe on the other side
You'll be free

Everyday is painted black and blue
You're trying to outrun
A bullet from a gun
And pain is all you ever choose
The prodigal sun
Dead at 21

Hard done by youth
Unstable and recluse
No point of view
Poster child for abuse

Starlight
(Hess / Lesperance)

Taking the good and the bad
Taking it all in stride
I'm paying more than my share
To keep it all alive

The sun's going down
And I feel the cold again
The world lets you down
What can I do

I've been looking for starlight
Finding my way through the dark
I've been looking for a sign
To show me where I belong

Lately the world moves too fast
I can't keep it all aligned
Shaking and roaring off the tracks
Delusion in overdrive

» top


Going Under
(Hess / Lesperance)

Your life is on display
Each and everyday
Little secrets you try to hide
They'll be darker days
Coming round your way
And no one to sympathize

In denial of all your sins
Holding out thinking
Your gonna win

But you're going under
And the whole world knows
That you're going under
You're a man overboard ya know

Super falling star
Yeah that's what you are
You're not what you used to be
Now know one can relate
Making you easy to hate
A thriller beyond belief

Tomorrow May Be Gone
(Hess / Lesperance)

I don't know where to find sanctuary
Clutching a cross receipting ten Hail Mary's

Preaching a holy war
Kicking in heavens door
Under a setting sun
Darkness bleeds

Now
Heaven and earth have allowed to
Spread the disease
So live for today
Tomorrow may be gone

Trying to understand a misguided point of view
Hearing the voice of God and dying to make it
true

Time stands still and now I can't breath
In the blink of an eye
Intervention falling hard like
Thunder from the sky
Burning you alive

Higher  (Acoustic)
(Hess / Lesperance)

I can feel the bombs are blowing up behind
Got my head above the water on the rise
And I feel alone although you walk beside

Still I fear what I'll find
If I hear you say the word goodbye

When all is said and done
You're still the one
Taking me higher
When all is said and done
I still need your love
You're taking me higher

Yeah I'm shedding all the skin that has disguised me
And I'm taking all the wrongs to make them right
Said my prayers and now I put it all behind me

Still I fear what I'll find
If I hear you say the word goodbye

When all is said and done
You're still the one
Taking me higher
When all is said and done
I still need your love
You're taking me higher

Into the light
Giving me energy
Into the light
You're there for me

When all is said and done
You're still the one
Taking me higher
When all is said and done
I still need your love
You're taking me higher
