United | Lyrics

United
(Hess/Lesperance)

Never sit and judge
Until you've walked a mile
In another mans shoes
When everyday's a struggle
Just to keep it alive
Then you've really
Got nothing to lose

Thinking heaven’s on their side
Heaven will divide and conquer
God's keeping score
The heavens will collide
Raining heavy fire
Just don't shot back

'Cos united we stand
And united we fall
Drawing lines in the sand
And daring them to cross
And the wars goes on and on
'Til the fight in them is gone
'Cos united we stand
And united we fall

I can't see a surrender
Or an end in sight
There's no win no lose
Shot into the dark
Over enemy lines
Everybody's got something
To prove

Thinking heaven’s on their side
Heaven will divide and conquer
God's keeping score
The heavens will collide
Raining heavy fire
Just don't shot back

Repeat chorus

Solo

Repeat chorus

Here Today Gone Tomorrow
(Hess/Lesperance)

In the mirror I see
A worn out face
I barely recognize with lines that trace
Back to another time when I just wanted it all
And the years will fly
Like a bird uncaged
From the clear blue skies
Through to darker days
We never realize
Any moment it could be gone

And as we commit the ultimate sin
Of just killing time

Cos we're here today
Gone tomorrow
Searching for some higher meaning
Life's a game
And time is borrowed
Cos we're here today
Gone tomorrow

If you wanna feel alive
Gonna feel some pain
It's gonna be alright
Gonna be ok
It’s black and white
In the end we're all on our own

Gravity
(Hess/Lesperance)

Everything that goes up
Eventually comes down
Tides will rise
So one day i will drown
I'm the mass that's falling to the ground
You're a force of nature
World renowned

Einstein brain and Da Vinci claim
Sir Isaac's laws were sound
And i've found

You're dragging me down like gravity now
The ground's not breaking my fall
You're dragging me down like gravity now
‘til there's nothing left of me
I'm down like
Down like gravity

Galaxies and beyond
A universe of stars
Can't explain
Why I'm from Venus, you're from Mars
If phase reversed
You'd lift me to the clouds
But e=mc squared
Without a doubt

Tight ropes fray
No violins play
Sir Isaac's laws were sound
And I’ve found

Sinking Ship
(Hess/Lesperance)

When the waters get rough
And the waves come crashing in
Who's gonna run
And who’ll stay until the end

You can say that you're with me
Say you'll be there
When push comes to shove
Will everyone bail
Ya can't see the front lines
Ya can't see the shore
It's every man for himself

When there's no way out
And there's nothing left
I'm gonna stand my ground
On a sinking ship
When there's no way out
And no going back
I'm gonna stand my ground
On a sinking ship

With nobody onboard
You're bound to run a drift
Like a captain off coarse
They'll all leave you for dead

One Of Life's Mysteries
(Hess/Lesperance)

You've been my enigma
I've been trying to understand
Maybe there's a mystic force unraveling a plan
We're two roads
Winding in the dark

From the mazes to the riddles
Just to take you round the bend
Life's too short to figure out
For now you'll just pretend
But you know
You're right back to the start

If love is a healer
Then I'm living wounded
In a world i don't understand

You're one of life's mysteries
A wall of secrecy
Maybe I was never meant to know
You're one of life's mysteries
That I can't seem to solve yet
You're one of life's mysteries

Love resides between the lines
Can't measure touch or see
It's all so cloak and dagger
In the search for chemistry
A true unknown
A missing puzzle piece

No Regrets
(Hess/Lesperance)

Wind me up
I'm getting back on track
Sign me up
I'm never looking back
I've been stuck
But I'm finally breaking free
No limits
On a spiritual journey

I was born to feel
The burning spinning wheels
Ya I'm in a race
Kicking up some dust

I'll be riding
Highways and open roads
Yeah, I’ve got no low gear
And I've got no control
White lines got me by the throat
I've got no fear
I've got nothing
And I've got no
Got no regrets

Now I'm revved up
I'm the engine
I'm the steal
High octane rush
In a lane reserved for me

Bite The Bullet
(Hess/Lesperance)

You let emotion start
To poison your mind
You’re letting down your guard
It happens all the time
Cos trust is hard you build up walls
Now you're ready for attack
So afraid of what's ahead
You forget to watch your back

I don't wanna wake up
In the arms of the enemy
Looking down the barrel of a gun
I don't wanna wake up
In the arms of the enemy
But i knew that this day had to come

If you could hit restart
Would you take another path
Ya got no crystal ball
You can only see the past
Cos trust is hard you build up walls
Now you're ready for attack
So afraid of what's ahead
You forget to watch your back

You gotta bite the bullet
Don’t wanna choke it down
You gotta bite the bullet
Start over

Things I Know
(Hess/Lesperance)

A shadow walks beside me
So I'm never lonely
And I won't have to live in reality
If I'm out of my head
Then no demons will find it
And i won't get burned
By the fire again

I'll ignore the voices
Saying everything is lost

I'm waiting for a moment
That never comes
Hanging onto hope
When there's isn't one
I just gotta hold on
To things I know ain't true
I'm waiting for the moment
It's gonna change
And I could make the world
A better place
Still I gotta hold on
To things I know ain't true
Like I'll ever be with you

I’ve been falling from grace
As I run the human race
And I don't know
Ignorance is bliss

Sky Is Falling
(Hess/Lesperance)

What you love and what you fear
Are sometimes the same things
Everything that you hold dear
Can vanish into thin air
Sometimes life's a bitter pill
But we all wanna taste it
Euphoric slides only downhill
You're stuck and you're never moving on
You know tomorrow's too late
The tables ain't turning

Hold on for the ride
It's a race to the bottom
The sky's always falling
The roller coaster of life
That won't let you off
So you better hold on
To what you love.

Angels try to spread their wings
But all flight has been grounded
Genocide of your dreams
And there's no awaking from at all
Yeah, we're all fighting fate
It's part of the journey

Heaven And Earth
(Hess/Lesperance)

Keep the locks on the cages
Sensory deprivation
We won’t know
When it gets critical

In the name of greed and democracy
Secrets lies and hypocrisy
Chasing miracles
And we’ll just sell our souls

You and I are pawns
They like to keep us
In the dark

‘Til we rise up
All of us are living in
A new world order
We've been losing control
They'll claim heaven and earth
And now the times up
Never gonna give in
To a new world order
We'll be taking control
To claim heaven & earth
Claim heaven and earth

In and out of all the stages
History repeats itself
Like a ticking bomb
And it will explode

Indestructible
(Hess/Lesperance)

You can rain on their fires
And they'll burn on
They've got faith that won't die
It's indestructible
Just pray for both sides
It's never done
Got faith that won't die
It's indestructible
You can rain on their fires
But they'll still burn on
They've got faith that won't die
It's indestructible
You can pray for both sides
And you're never done
They've got faith that won't die
It's indestructible

In flight
To the promised land
Driven by martyrs
And vengeful gods into war

Hope lies on the battlefield
Breathing it’s dying breathe
But who's keeping score anymore

Everyone claims innocence

You can rain on their fires
And they'll burn on
They've got faith that won't die
It's indestructible
Just pray for both sides
It's never done
They've got faith that won't die
It's indestructible

No signs
Of a compromise
Fighting the darkness
With your head
And your heart
In doubt
That there's a master plan
Everyone falling
On their words and swords

Everyone claims innocence

You can rain on their fires
And they'll burn on
They've got faith that won't die
It's indestructible
Just pray for both sides
It's never done
They've got faith that won't die
It's indestructible

Solo

Everyone claims innocence

You can rain on their fires
And they'll burn on
They've got faith that won't die
It's indestructible
Just pray for both sides
It's never done
They've got faith that won't die
It's indestructible
