Live Ones | Lyrics

Change Comes Around  (Acoustic)
(Hess / Lesperance)

This is my rollercoaster
I ride it everyday
It's a mirror of my emotions
I want to wish it all away

News flash of the century
Story of the day
If you wanna see mountains crumble
You can watch it any day

When I come down
It's hard to get it straight
I gotta find me a better way

Whenever the light is gone
You're not the only one
Breaking down
When all your faith is gone
Don't let it pull you under
Change comes around
Sail on to higher ground
Hiding from the thunder
I think we'd all agree
That facing fear don't help us
Escape reality

When I come down
It's hard to get it straight
I gotta live with what I say

Something To Say  (Edit)
(Hess / Lesperance)

Yesterday I had it all worked out to a 'T'
But now something's wrong between you and me
I was wrong, so wrong
To think that I would stay
Seasons come and seasons go
And today is another day

I wanna say now's the time
To go our separate ways
I don't know I might be wrong
Could we find the strength to say
That our love, our love's seen some better days
And who's to say if I had the chance
That I'd make the choice to say
If you ever had something that you wanted to say
You better start talking before I go away
I wish that I could say I've been feeling okay
That I'll be bringing on the better days
But I wouldn't feel right
Knowing I was lying to you

Am I wasting all my time, will we try to make a mends
I try to read between the lines
But all I see is the end

Hard To Love  (Live)
(Ward / Hess / Lesperance)

You come on like a sweet child here drive me wild when I want you
You giving me a rough time then you change your mind then you want me
You come so close, but you never stay
You take my heart, and then you walk away

You're hard to love, but it's hard to let you go
I need you now, but I'm afraid of letting you know
It's hard to love, and never understand
How it slips right through your hands

I wanna say you're mine but acting like you don't know me
All I need is one night just to make it right when you're lonely
I got to know if we can make it last

Can't pretend I don't want you to know
Every touch leaves your mark on me
Little things seem to haunt me now
I can't believe you've become a part of me

No Justice  (Live)
(Hess / Lesperance)

Freedom burns forever in the holy sun
It leads us into a battle that's never won

Whatever I take
Or whatever I give
Doesn't seem to matter anymore
When there's no

Justice in the world
No justice in the world
You feed the fire when you say it's all over
No justice in the world
When you realize that the devil's got your number

It's your decision
To walk the mile when the road is long
It's like religion wasting our lives on a
Worthless cause
Whatever I take
Or whatever I give
Doesn't seem to matter anymore
When there's no

When will freedom shine for us
No, it ain't over, no

If There Was A Time  (Edit)
(Hess / Lesperance)

I try to talk to the clouds
But they spill out the rain
Now I'm truly convinced
They've got nothing to say

Will I ever learn
Is there something wrong with my brain
Now the weeds are on fire
And they’re burning away

Last time I checked I'm at 34 sins
Another won't matter 'cause I'm never gonna win
Hoping now I'm on a road that I can change
Cause I'll change
If there was a time when I needed to pray
That the cold wind blows away
If there was a time when I needed a place
To wipe the guilt free from my face
If there was a time for mercy in my life
It's right now

If I were down on my knees
Would it all be in vain
But for now I'll believe
Until there's some better way
And my pages turn
Til I've got nothing to say
Now the days with no dawn
Are coming of age

Last time I checked I'm at 35 sins
Another won't matter 'cause I'm never gonna win
Holding onto a ghost that I can't save

Honestly  (Acoustic)
(Hess)

I stand before you accused of many crimes
But I want to believe that love can still survive
You don't have to say it, I don't have to read your mind
To know that emptiness has finally arrived
How was I to know right from wrong
Words were hardly spoken, so where did I go wrong

Tell me honestly, if you're still loving me
Looking into my eyes honestly
Words have more meaning, if they're said at certain times
I need you now so I can feel alive
How would you know if you won't give me some time
To see if everything could work you'll be mine
I'll be lost forever or someday I may find
The words that I've been searching for or just some peace of mind

Chorus

All the nights I sit and wonder there must be more life
I'm sure that days and years go by while
I am living with, living with a lonely feeling

Jealousy  (Acoustic)
(Hess / Lesperance)

How could you be so cruel
Is how the conversation starts
You say I'm breaking all the rules
Not to mention your heart

You say I promised you my love
Well, I got no reason to lie
Cause I forsee a change
And there's no mistake
If you wanna know the reason why

It's your jealousy
And I don't understand it at all
You've redefined jealousy
And wear it out on your sleeve not your heart
Now, I've got nothing left to say
You know I don't want no part
Of a mind that's so twisted
And views a million miles apart

You say I promised you my love
Should I give it one more try
I still forsee a change
There's no mistake
If you wanna know the reason why

More Than You'll Ever Know  (Bonus track)
(Hess / Lesperance)

You played what seemed to be
A pawn who played the queen
We chant and knelt in turn
Persuades us to believe
That the smoke that's in the breeze
Won't stale our breath and word

All in all, these little things
That used to bring me comfort
Now just feel so real and wrong
I'm blue

More than you'll ever know
More than you'll ever know
I've been reaching for the cold demise
More than you'll ever know
It's more, winning every prize
Radiate the need
From the cesspools made by greed
'Til the truth and flesh has heard
Now fate just seems to be
A wound that never bleeds
Now the world at rest is one

All in all, these little things
That used to bring me comfort
Now just feel so real and wrong
I'm blue

More than you'll ever know
More than you'll ever know
I've been reaching for the cold demise
More than you'll ever know
It's more, winning every prize

Saviors Never Cry  (Live)
(Hess / Lesperance)

You say that I'm lost
You got the word that I'm going down
Yea, it may be true
It's like twenty-four tons of hard hitting headache
When you realize that you're coming unglued

I've sown and you've sown the seeds of youth
Time won't and I don't conceal the truth

So get up and fly away
Or forever be in doubt
You know, Saviours never cry
You're hot on the heels of hope and love
Dreams can never die
Tear down the walls you hide behind
There's just one thing in your life
That you gotta do
You wanna break on through
Don't be kind to the core
Easy to ignore
If your lips never move
You're bound to lose the war

I know and you know
There's no use
Trying to hold back the years
Making a career out of hiding the truth
A new day is born
You need to wake the dying
The hand that it's in is yours

Warming A Frozen Rose  (Live)
(Hess / Lesperance)

She writes "all is gold" with the clear intent to lie
And he rides a fallen horse but believes that he can fly

One day little fleas turn into parasites disease
Making sounds no one could hear
Monochrome memories and colourless melodies get too loud
Then break the ear

Warming a frozen rose
The rainbows disappeared
Lust fucked off and crawled in a young new hole

It's never good to pretend that it's ever coming back again

The screen hides indulging tries
Patronizing incurable lies
And we'll fight on the lawn over which blade of grass is mine

» top


Blue  (Live)
(Hess / Lesperance)

Now that I've swam into waters I never wanted to
I'm in hook, line and sinker
I want another life that comes with a guarantee
And batteries so I have strength for you

Since you came undone
A despondent fool
Swimming with chains in the river
A drowning soul
The queen of lies turns blue

Now I've figured out your conscience has never been awakened
Asleep your days of a holy child
Alive are your venomous teeth biting in me
So I've paved the road to ruin

Since you came undone
A despondent fool
Swimming in chains in the river
A drowning whore
The queen of lies turns blue

Slowly Slipping Away  (Live)
(Hess / Ribler)

There's a burning question in my heart
But I see the answer in your eyes
An uneasy feeling without you
There's only peace by your side

Our hearts survived the cold world outside
Somehow this love keeps us alive
I feel it in the morning
I feel it all through the day
I feel the heartache, slowly slipping away, slowly slipping away
We've had our share of confusion
We've been let down so many times before
But what I've found is a real love
No need to search anymore, no
Somehow we've weathered the storms in our lives
This love has never been a lie
We will survive the cold world outside
Somehow this love keeps us alive

Breathing Sand  (Live)
(Hess)

Walking on the coals til you can't feel your feet
Another foot further is just a stone's throw from misery
Now there's a better way than living your life
Without “charity case”
Tagged on you before you're breathing sand
Now the wall breaks all ties
You've tripped chasing time
To chip away and step inside this old man
The foul rain of time has dripped through your mind
And you slip away
The rest is feared by all men
To rot in a state of nowhere is life's worst disease
To never really notice is a divine lack of luxury
Sure we'll all recount the miracles
But less revealing wounds will have captured the prize
Kingdoms falling down fertilizing weary seeds
Passing tortured crowns to the souls that lonely bleed
There's no rest in denial
I can't heal the land, I can't breathe the sand
Everybody's life is a love/hate affair

Had Enough  (Live)
(Hess / Lesperance)

Love's a long and twisted road
And I know I've walked it before
It takes me nowhere
Almost every time
And leaves me wondering
When will I find
A true love in perfect harmony
When will I learn
That I've got to believe

On my own now
I've come to learn
The times of heartache
From bridges burned
Now there's still one thing
I want to know
Will I find peace of mind
If I'm alone
And on it goes
I'm going around and around
God only knows
If I'm ever coming down

When I've had enough
The world kicks me around
One more time I've had enough
When I've had enough
I'll let out all the feelings
I can't hide
I've had enough for awhile

Empty Promises  (Live)
(Hess / Lesperance)

You screwed the system
I count the days
I'm watching your words unfolding
A little loser
That's got no place
Don't get your way
And your world stops turning

I'll be prying those words from your mouth
Cause I always think you're lying
Now your motives are always in doubt
So I don't hear you
When you tell me to be
Calm and relaxed
You're just a shooting star
That's destined for falling
Come and be saved
I would be alright
If I could live on empty promises
You're in one big sewer
You're something strange
If nothing I know
I've been learning of your unhuman nature
Cast iron skin
Build the fortress
So no one gets in

I'll be prying those words from your mouth
Cause I always think you're lying
Your motives are always in doubt
So I don't hear you
When you tell me to be

Chorus

Paint Thins, The  (Live)
(Hess / Lesperance)

Rage, your involuntary martyr
Caged by the conscience and the throne
Gotta fight for what you need
But be careful what you breathe
Staged by the puppets and the trolls

Fame for the power hungry mongers
Enslaved by the towers made of stone
Will the Virgin Mary grieve
For the parting of the sleaze
Insane in every sense of the word

A pending haze on this trite sinned world
Wait til we lay still
Dare we stray to this right wing world
We gave in - the paint thins

Claims to a sacreligious other
They dangle the carrot in front of me
And the acid burns the keys
To the doors that house the weak
Only saved by exile to kingdom come

Voice Of Reason  (Live)
(Hess / Lesperance)

I've been irreverent to the power controlling me
It's like a force coming down hard on me
When in a war with fate you learn to lose
Give me the sun the clouds are on the way
In on a guilt trip for a holiday
Coming apart the pieces all need glue

It's a shame the voice of reason faintly falls astray
Insane with all the seasons seeing shades of fall in May

Now all I can do is lay on the bed I've made
If I'm reborn or given another way
I would resolve and take what I'm given
Or I'll never find the forest for the trees
I'd only reach out for the burning leaves
Without a cause or the faith to pull me through

It was heaven that filled the grave
You swallow the pill and pray
It's coming around today
Seeing shades of fall in May

No Justice  (Live)
(Hess / Lesperance)

Freedom burns forever in the holy sun
It leads us into a battle that's never won

Whatever I take
Or whatever I give
Doesn't seem to matter anymore
When there's no

Justice in the world
No justice in the world
You feed the fire when you say it's all over
No justice in the world
When you realize that the devil's got your number

It's your decision
To walk the mile when the road is long
It's like religion wasting our lives on a
Worthless cause
Whatever I take
Or whatever I give
Doesn't seem to matter anymore
When there's no

When will freedom shine for us
No, it ain't over, no

Candle  (Live)
(Hess / Lesperance)

Walked in your garden of Eden
Fell in the hole of your sentiments
Trying to find the ground too soon

You came like the swarming of killer bees
Stung in the eyes now I'll never see
If you're the moon disguised as the sun

We severed the ties leading to golden open roads
Unable to fly or ever take hold

Your candle bleeds the light that I adore
More heavenly than any ember - you're gold

Mending our lives with your healing hands
Straight as the blind with severely bent hammers
And alibis for tools

Your candle bleeds the life that I live for
More candidly than I remember
