Thirteen | Lyrics

Garden Of Eden
(Hess/Lesperance)

Over seas and oceans
Another world away
Bullets fly
With God on their side
Where black and white is grey
And we're searching for utopia

This ain't no
Garden of eden
Nowhere to hide or to go
Nobody said it would be easy
Just count it down
Let it blow

On the winding road to freedom
We're lost and miles away
So say your prayers
That someone still cares if you
Live to die another day
And we're searching for utopia

This ain't no
Garden of eden
Nowhere to hide or to go
Nobody said it would be easy
Just count it down
Let it blow

This ain't no
Garden of eden
Nowhere to hide or to go
Nobody said it would be easy
Just count it down
Let it blow

Solo

This ain't no
Garden of eden
Nowhere to hide or to go
Nobody said it would be easy
Just count it down
Let it blow

Live It
(Hess/Lesperance)

I got no God, no faith
No worries
Everything's great
No plan, no way
Livin' like an outlaw renegade

No fear, or regret
When I go I know I
Wanna leave a worn out corpse
All stained with life's pleasures
And no pain

You know rules
Were meant for breaking
Life's a shot and you get one

So live it free - live it hard
Live it on fire in style
Leave it falling apart
Live it free - live it hard
Life's a shot and you get one so
Live it free and live it hard

On a knife's edge
I'll skate into
The 5 star pearly gates
Heaven can wait
I'm here
And I might never leave
Not done, not fading, not burnt
But going out in flames
One more, amen
Dial it up and leave it on 10

You know rules
Were meant for breaking
Life's a shot and you get one

So live it free - live it hard
Live it on fire in style
Leave it falling apart
Live it free - live it hard
Life's a shot and you get one so
Live it free and live it hard

Solo

So live it free - live it hard
Live it on fire in style
Leave it falling apart
Live it free - live it hard
Life's a shot and you get one so
Live it free and live it hard

Early Warning Signs
(Hess/Lesperance)

Hold on tight
'Cos we've entered flight into
The mouth of hell
No surprise
The entire human race
Is here as well
In denial of everything
And every moment we're alive
Dignity clings to life support
But I just think it took a dive

Blood rains from the skies
Like thunder it's a surgical strike
To our hearts
Don't you close your eyes
You'll miss all the ...

Early warning signs
That read the world's going under
Blind leading the blind
Devastation like no other
It's an endless sea of power and greed
Surrounded by hypocrisy
Crossing chalk outlines
Missing early warning signs

Can't disguise
We're on the road we paved to ride it
Straight into hell
Culture dies
Starving to death
Down at the bottom of a wishing well
Revolution cries
To all of humankind eventually
Forced to betray
Can't empathize
Put down the loaded gun
Is not in our flawed DNA

Blood rains from the skies
Like thunder it's a surgical strike
To our hearts
Don't you close your eyes
You'll miss all the ...

Early warning signs
That read the world's going under
Blind leading the blind
Devastation like no other
It's an endless sea of power and greed
Surrounded by hypocrisy
Crossing chalk outlines
Missing early warning signs

Solo

The Midnight Hours
(Hess/Lesperance)

Advice from the heart
Invades as the daylight falls
The small hours crawl
As I try to ignore it all

But the silence wakes a guilty mind
And you lie awake
As your conscience tries to run and hide

But in the midnight hours
Karma gets to you for the things you do
And it all comes down
Not to what you say but what you do

You can tell yourself that it's just a game
You can fool yourself to get through the day
But the midnight hours will get to you
Will get to you

Ghosts haunt the dark
Can't lay on the bed I've made
With circling sharks I walk the edge of a blade

But the silence wakes a guilty mind
And you lie awake
As your conscience tries to run and hide

But in the midnight hours
Karma gets to you for the things you do
And it all comes down
Not to what you say but what you do

You can tell yourself that it's just a game
You can fool yourself to get through the day
But the midnight hours will get to you
Will get to you

Solo

But in the midnight hours
Karma gets to you for the things you do
And it all comes down
Not to what you say but what you do

You can tell yourself that it's just a game
You can fool yourself to get through the day
But the midnight hours will get to you
Will get to you

But in the midnight hours
Karma gets to you for the things you do
And it all comes down
Not to what you say but what you do

You can tell yourself that it's just a game
You can fool yourself to get through the day
But the midnight hours will get to you

Whatever It Takes
(Hess)

When you and i were young
You and I could both pretend
That nothing could go wrong
There were only new beginnings
And no end

But then time becomes the enemy
Love scatters like an autumn leaf
In the thinning air without a trace

Tell me what you want
Tell me what you need
So I can stop this heart racing out of me

Love can break your heart
So I'll keep the pieces safe
'Til I can stop his heartache
I'll do whatever it takes

When searching for someone
You've lost
You somehow tend to find yourself
We all carry a cross
But mine
No I can't seem to lift myself up

Now I've lost you like a summer breeze
In the winter of a desperate plea
Love is gone without a trace

Tell me what you want
Tell me what you need
So I can stop this heart racing out of me

Love can break your heart
So I'll keep the pieces safe
'Til I can stop his heartache
I'll do whatever it takes

Solo

Tell me what you want
Tell me what you need
So I can stop this heart racing out of me

Love can break your heart
So I'll keep the pieces safe
'Til I can stop his heartache
I'll do whatever it takes

Saints And Sinners
(Hess/Lesperance)

It's a cold and heartless world
But behind the darkness
Shines a ray of hope
A line that twists and turns
Still you need to know
Which side you're standing on
To catch you when you fall

As we hang on the wire
We're puppets on a string
Some saints, some sinners
Dragged through the fire
Better decide who you are
In a world of saints and sinners

Now you're tied and can't break free
You've been taking on water
Surprise you're in too deep
Angels hide, won't seek
But the demons find you
As they never sleep
To catch you when you fall

As we hang on the wire
We're puppets on a string
Some saints, some sinners
Dragged through the fire
Better decide who you are
In a world of saints and sinners

Solo

As we hang on the wire
We're puppets on a string
Some saints, some sinners
Dragged through the fire
Better decide who you are
In a world of saints and sinners

All I Need
(Hess/Lesperance)

All I need to be sane
Is ice running through my veins
Life is just a game
Win or lose it all ends up the same

Now I found meaning
And I found hope
You're the reason everything works

You're all I need
You life me up when I was under
You're all I need
To get me through the night
When all I feel
Is the weight of the world on my shoulders
You're all I need
To make it through the hard times

The walls are there to hide
The scars and hurt on the other side
When my defenses start to fall
You're the only one that I would call

Now I found meaning
And I found hope
You're the reason everything works

You're all I need
You life me up when I was under
You're all I need
To get me through the night
When all I feel
Is the weight of the world on my shoulders
You're all I need
To make it through the hard times

Solo

Now I found meaning
And I found hope
You're the reason everything works

You're all I need
You life me up when I was under
You're all I need
To get me through the night
When all I feel
Is the weight of the world on my shoulders
You're all I need
To make it through the hard times

Troubled Times
(Hess/Lesperance)

Is anybody out there
Who still gives a damn
Is there anybody out there
Or am I just talking to myself

You're running with angels and the devil
'Cos you're running out of time
Now your only crime is living and being born
In troubled times

We only want piece of mind
But baby we're living in troubled times
Not everyone will get out alive
Baby we're in troubled times

I kinda get the feeling
That we're lost without a plan
But it's kinda hard to notice
When your head's down six feet in the sand

They say that only darker times are coming
There'll be justice from the skies
Now your only crime is living and being born
In troubled times

We only want piece of mind
But baby we're living in troubled times
Not everyone will get out alive
Baby we're in troubled times

We only want piece of mind
But baby we're living in troubled times
Not everyone will get out alive
Baby we're in troubled times

No there's no piece of mind
We're living in troubled times
Oh no, not everyone will get out alive

Solo

We only want piece of mind
But baby we're living in troubled times
Not everyone will get out alive
Baby we're in troubled times

We only want piece of mind
But baby we're living in troubled times
Not everyone will get out alive
Baby we're in troubled times

Never Say Never
(Hess/Lesperance)

Life changing epiphanies
Break through in desperate times
Don't ever listen to what they say
If you did then you never would try

Life rolls like dice
Odds are you'll never beat it
Victory in sight
Then up comes your number
It's snake eyes

We all fall
Gotta stand tall
Never say never
Live your dreams
Now you're so close
Don't let go
Never say never
Never give up on your dreams

Misery loves company
And every other cliche applies
Knocked out fighting destiny
But you either do or you die

Life rolls like dice
Odds are you'll never beat it
Victory in sight
Then up comes your number
It's snake eyes

We all fall
Gotta stand tall
Never say never
Live your dreams
Now you're so close
Don't let go
Never say never
Never give up on your dreams

Solo

Then up comes your number
It's snake eyes

We all fall
Gotta stand tall
Never say never
Live your dreams
Now you're so close
Don't let go
Never say never
Never give up

Life rolls like dice
Odds are you'll never beat it
Victory in sight
Then up comes your number
It's snake eyes

We all fall
Gotta stand tall
Never say never
Live your dreams
Now you're so close
Don't let go
Never say never
Never give up on your dreams
Never give up on your dreams

Stardust
(Hess/Lesperance)

We could spend our time
Filling up on life
And be empty

Following the wrong signs
Straight up to the front lines
'Til the shots run out

'Cos we all bought in
From kings and queens
To beggars and thieves
We're under fire

No more fantasy
Just reality
While I hold my breath and fight

You're never gonna come down to earth
You're never gonna realize
What you're ultimately worth
Just a grain of sand
On a blue dot in the universe

In a rare loss for words
You know to be alive
Is a blessing and a curse
We're all the same
We're stardust in the universe

Still every night
The moonlight turns into a sunrise
For a new day

But as the minutes unwind
How are you spending your time
'Til the shots run out

'Cos we all bought in
From kings and queens
To beggars and thieves
We're under fire

No more fantasy
Just reality
While I hold my breath and fight (for life)

You're never gonna come down to earth
You're never gonna realize
What you're ultimately worth
Just a grain of sand
On a blue dot in the universe

In a rare loss for words
You know to be alive
Is a blessing and a curse
We're all the same
We're stardust in the universe

Everything is connected
For better and for worse
We're prisoners of our genetics
Evolution in reverse

So count all your blessings
And one inescapable curse
That we're born just to die
And fly away
Like stardust in the universe

Solo

You're never gonna come down to earth
You're never gonna realize
What you're ultimately worth
Just a grain of sand
On a blue dot in the universe

In a rare loss for words
You know to be alive
Is a blessing and a curse
We're all the same
We're stardust in the universe

You're never gonna come down to earth
You're never gonna realize
What you're ultimately worth
Just a grain of sand
On a blue dot in the universe

In a rare loss for words
You know to be alive
Is a blessing and a curse
We're all the same
We're stardust in the universe

The Midnight Hours  (Acoustic Version)
(Hess/Lesperance)

Advice from the heart
Invades as the daylight falls
The small hours crawl
As I try to ignore it all

But the silence wakes a guilty mind
And you lie awake
As your conscience tries to run and hide

But in the midnight hours
Karma gets to you for the things you do
And it all comes down
Not to what you say but what you do

You can tell yourself that it's just a game
You can fool yourself to get through the day
But the midnight hours will get to you

With circling sharks I walk the edge of a blade

But the silence wakes a guilty mind
And you lie awake
As your conscience tries to run and hide

But in the midnight hours
Karma gets to you for the things you do
And it all comes down
Not to what you say but what you do

You can tell yourself that it's just a game
You can fool yourself to get through the day
But the midnight hours will get to you
Will get to you

But in the midnight hours
Karma gets to you for the things you do
And it all comes down
Not to what you say but what you do

You can tell yourself that it's just a game
You can fool yourself to get through the day
But the midnight hours will get to you
Will get to you

But in the midnight hours
Karma gets to you for the things you do
And it all comes down
Not to what you say but what you do

You can tell yourself that it's just a game
You can fool yourself to get through the day
But the midnight hours will get to you
