Track Name: I Want To Be Free
Feet can't touch the ground
You're shaking

I know

Look what's coming 'round
Shots taken

All wrong

You've been training
Every day and night
Every reason
Looking to fight
You tease me

I want to be free

Keep believing
Everything's alright
Bob and weaving
Every feint and sleight

I want to be free

Coming back for more
Bad timing
Head strong

Evened up the score
Crowd screaming
Head turned

You've been training
Every day and night
Every reason
Looking to turn on me

I want to be free

Keep believing
Everything's alright
That you're winning
Losing more every night

I want to be free


(There was only ever, really
One man in the ring

Turned out every strike
Was pointed in

Just an easy target
For the win

These times are turning
These tides are turning)
Track Name: The Fighter
Whenever you’re ready
here I am

any old place will do

Take it or leave me
as it stands…
we’re gonna break everything
in two

There’s a part of me that’s fine
all alone

in time

you’ll need me

you’re
with me

all mine
Track Name: Fragile Things
It's just a little too late
You fell and hit your head

It's just a little too late
And so you laid and bled

All of those beautiful thoughts
They up and left your head

You weren't the same anymore
But you weren't left for dead

And as you laid in that bed
Feeling all alone

The demons came for your head
And found you weren't at home

The crack it let them right in
And then you lost control
Track Name: Daily Rate
These days
There's no time to wait
Just wait and you'll see

Span time
Don't anticipate
The fate of the seed

How can I break free?
When you're bringing me down
When you're taking me down
How can I break free
Now?

When you're taking me down
When you're breaking me down
Yeah when you're dragging me down
How can I break free
Now?

Making haste
Lay your life to waste
The fire grows inside

Daily rate
Lives incinerate
The fire comes alive

Hot, Hot
Can you keep it hot?
(This rhythm's insane!)

Hot, Hot
Can you keep it hot?
(This rhythm's insane!)

How can I break free?
When you're bringing me down
When you're taking me down
How can I break free
Now?

When you're taking me down
When you're breaking me down
Yeah when you're dragging me down
How can I break free
Now?
Track Name: It Comes Around
Hey little thrill
Don't you know there's just enough
To go
Around?

Careful what you ask for
Watch out!
What you want
It comes
Around

And you wonder why
And you wonder why
It's alright

You've got to leave the past behind
Leave before the ash is
Falling down
On you

Leave all your aggression
Everything in time
Track Name: Never Enough
Knocked down… get up
Knocked down… get up
Knocked down… get up
Knocked down… get up

Get up
Get up
Get up
Get up!

You keep on living in that fantasy life
Your heart it beats like a drum

You’re working hard
But harder it comes
That’s just the way that it goes

You keep on thinking you can make it alright
Coming apart at the seams

You’re thinking hard
But not hard enough
Could it be just what it seems?

Even when tears are falling
It’s not enough
Through all these years still flowing
It’s not enough
To break your heart
Not enough
It’s never enough
To take you apart
Not enough

That’s just the way that it goes

Knocked down… get up
Knocked down… get up
Knocked down… get up
Knocked down… get up

Get up
Get up
Knocked down… get up
Knocked down… get up

Feeling like everything is turned inside out
Right is wrong, up is down

You’re working hard
But not hard enough
That’s just the way that it goes

Even when tears are falling
It’s not enough
Through all these years still flowing
It’s not enough
To break your heart
Not enough
It’s never enough
To take you apart
Not enough

That’s just the way that it goes
Track Name: Howling Heart
You and I
We wanted more
But still the same
Came right on through

Oh no
Oh yeah

But you wanted to be free
Yeah you wanted to be free


Marching
Arm in arm
To be
What we can dream
Shouting out loud into the sky
Cause we can feel it
Cause we can see it
Cause we can be there
Cause we can be there
Tonight!

It’s just a matter of time
Before you get up again
And again
Before you get up again
And again
I know you will…


You’ve got a howling heart
Time to wake it up

I’ve got a howling heart
Time to wake it up

We’ve got a howling heart
Time to wake it up

We've got a howling heart
