Derek Heiberger The third of wonderful EP's and a topic close to my heart, finding your own way in life despite what you're told. To quote DawnFade, "It's about realizing you only have one life and don't have nearly enough time to waste living it 'normally.'" Wise words indeed. And you're living that dream, making wonderful music for us all. =) Favorite track: Machines.

Track Name: Amend
I understand
All the pain inside, it's cause of me
I know that I left you alone
So alone, oh so cold
And without anyone at all to hear the cries
I can't hide the lies

If I hold you once more
Can you forget all before

Please, I only wanted to be seen
Something greater's meant for me
But that is no excuse to banish all
These thoughts clouding my mind
Will you help me to amend
'Cause it kills me seeing how I failed my friends

Doubt filling up the cracks inside
Burning hole through your mind
You will never have a heart to hold with you
So alone, and we know
It was me to blame for all of your pain
And all of your hate

If I hold you once more
Can you forget all before

Please, I only wanted to be seen
Something greater's meant for me
But that is no excuse to banish all
These thoughts clouding my mind
Will you help me to amend
'Cause it kills me seeing how I failed my friends

Faults etched inside your fragile heart
And they're tearing you apart
How can I fix you
If I told you I was in the wrong
You were my friend all along
And now I'm here with you

Please, I only wanted to be seen
Something greater's meant for me
But that is no excuse to banish all
These thoughts clouding my mind
Will you help me to amend
'Cause it kills me seeing how I failed my friends
Track Name: Special
Closed eyes means it's my time
To shine, when everyone is looking away
I'm trying to say
I'm not searching for a crowd
I'm just looking for some love
To know I matter to someone
Blasted while I'm standing
Just trying to be all I can be
But they don't want to see
They all ignore what I say
No more 'cause I will find a way
Make this my day
'Cause sometimes

It's hard being the last guy
it's hard fighting to find the light
To see the world, to be seen
When everyone is striving to be
The lead, the last one standing
But this struggle's so demanding
I don't wanna be a culprit anyway
I just wanna be special

I just wanna be a little special
I just wanna be a little special

At last everyone is
Listening to all I have to say
I got my way
I risk messing up the world
But this power feels so good, it hurts
'Cause this is what it takes
Maybe I did something wrong
I tried to do it on my own
Now I know
This was a mistake
I took it to far, that wasn't the plan
But here I am
'Cause sometimes

It's hard being the last guy
it's hard fighting to find the light
To see the world, to be seen
When everyone is striving to be
The lead, the last one standing
But this struggle's so demanding
I don't wanna be a culprit anyway
I just wanna be special

I just wanna be a little special
I just wanna be a little special

Can I reverse, can I look back
Looking back won't change the past
now I know the reason I was small
'Cause sometimes
The smallest climb so high
But I couldn't see through all the lies

I just wanna be a little special
I just wanna be a little special

It's hard being the last guy
it's hard fighting to find the light
To see the world, to be seen
When everyone is striving to be
The lead, the last one standing
But this struggle's so demanding
I don't wanna be a culprit anyway
I just wanna be special

It's hard being the last guy
it's hard fighting to find the light
To see the world, to be seen
When everyone is striving to be
The lead, the last one standing
But this struggle's so demanding
I don't wanna be a culprit anyway
I just wanna be special
Track Name: Where We Go
It's a daydream
It's a wish so far and deep
And we'll make it
Even if it kills me
'Cause our home is gone
And the fire's burning out
But we stand as one and as one
We won't back down, no

It's a long road
And we are growing tired of the pain
And the days that we used to own
But I know
We will make it in the end
No matter where we go

No matter where we go, no
No matter where we go

Fallen angels
Tempt me as we walk by
Feel the weight
Of the memories we left behind
So hold me close and don't mind the cold
This won't be the end
But this might be where we crawl

It's a long road
And we are growing tired of the pain
And the days that we used to own
But I know
We will make it in the end
No matter where we go

No matter where we go, no
No matter where we go

Dream of a world
Free of cold
Yet covered in beauty
White as snow
Roads are meant to make us strong
So we'll keep moving on

It's a long road
And we are growing tired of the pain
And the days that we used to own
But I know
We will make it in the end
No matter where we go

No matter where we go, no
No matter where we go
Track Name: Machines
It's killing me
This war inside our hearts, our minds, our souls
We will never become whole
[Never feel alive]
Bare our teeth
Fight to break away, to smash the walls
Echo thorugh the empty halls
[Left alone to die]
Flames alight
Burning through the darkness in our minds
The gears begin to turn
[It's time for us to fight]
Don't you know
You can't play with fire, our desire
Is to watch you crash and burn


Stop, locks, holding us together
Gears turn, grinding on the tether
We have, ground us in reality
Nothing is as it seems
Blinded by our own recovery
Taken to another world, we flee
We can't stand but we will fight to be free
We can break these machines


I believe
We can push on through it till the end
It doesn't have to stop today
[Never one to regret]
So we recieve
The pain inflicted, we will have to mend
But can the scars are here to stay
[Our peace is gone, we've nothing left]
Try to fly
Try to do anything at all
But trying not to fall
[And what do we get]
Raise the cry
Break away the axels in our minds
These cogs create a wall


Stop, locks, holding us together
Gears turn, grinding on the tether
We have, ground us in reality
Nothing is as it seems
Blinded by our own recovery
Taken to another world, we flee
We can't stand but we will fight to be free
We can break these machines


Soldier on
Fight until the bitter end
Break apart
Fall beside your standing friends
Burn them down
Burn them in the fires of the ages
Break from our cages


Stop, locks, holding us together
Gears turn, grinding on the tether
We have, ground us in reality
Nothing is as it seems
Blinded by our own recovery
Taken to another world, we flee
We can't stand but we will fight to be free
We can break these machines
Track Name: If I
Everyone is looking to me
I have to save them all
The demons trapped inside me
Are tearing me apart
And now it's time to fight
But failure I know all too well
How can I save the world
If I can't forgive myself

And now these faces look back at me (back at me)
Telling me I'm not alone (alone)
Why do you stand by me (by me)
If I can't let it go

I'm reminded of my past
Of all the damage I have done
Never looking for forgiveness
The punishment has just begun
Made to keep in a cage
Now it has escaped
How can I save the world
If I only know pain

And now these faces look back at me (back at me)
Telling me I'm not alone (alone)
Why do you stand by me (by me)
If I can't let it go

And now these faces look back at me
Telling me I'm not alone
Why do you stand by me
If I can't let it go
Track Name: Take Me Home
Seems like so long, and yet
It was only just a day ago
I held you close and
Now I'm far away
Remain strong
It's only for a little while
And I can't see the end
It's my job to defend

Day in and day out
I cry for you and I bleed for you and
Nightfall and daybreak
I long to be with you once more so will you please
Take me home

I knew the cost
Of being free of fighting and
I lost
Everything
All the time I had
Is it worth the fight if I can never see you again
Can I face the scars I'll have to mend

Day in and day out
I cry for you and I bleed for you and
Nightfall and daybreak
I long to be with you once more so will you please
Take me home

Take me home
Will you take me home
Will you please take me home

I'm alone
I'm afraid to face the past
I know
Mistakes were made but bonds are made too
Last in a race
We're fighting to get home
My tears I won't show

Day in and day out
I cry for you and I bleed for you and
Nightfall and daybreak
I long to be with you once more so will you please
Take me home

Take me home
Will you take me home
Will you please take me home

Take me home
Will you take me home
Will you please take me home
Track Name: Goodbye At Last
Hey there, I know it's been so long
I'm all alone here on my throne
Of broken hearts and dying dreams
I can't remember you at all
I can't forget the pain you caused
When you slipped away to sleep

We used to always be together
It's been so long but I can still remember
All the fun we used to have
We had a good run till the end
We found what it means to be a friend
But now you're gone, goodbye at last

Open my eyes, I see you are a part of my past
Now I'm letting go, goodbye at last

Hey there, I just wanted to say
I cry, seems like everyday
Is a fight to stay alive
You'll never know the death inside
Of watching all your friends pass by
And leaving you to softly cry

We used to always be together
It's been so long but I can still remember
All the fun we used to have
We had a good run till the end
We found what it means to be a friend
But now you're gone, goodbye at last

Open my eyes, I see you are a part of my past
Now I'm letting go, goodbye at last

I close my eyes
All the pain remains inside
Open my eyes
I can once again feel alive

We used to always be together
It's been so long but I can still remember
All the fun we used to have
We had a good run till the end
We found what it means to be a friend
But now you're gone, goodbye at last

Open my eyes, I see you are a part of my past
Now I'm letting go, goodbye at last
Goodbye at last
Goodbye at last
