Track Name: To Infinity and Beyond!
I've got to admit my mortality and the limits of my own body...
It's not that I'm afraid of dying, but rather losing those I find most important.

Cause when I go, I picture myself all around, and everything that's in will become inside out.
There will be no more right or wrong, transcending into the dark.


When I contemplate the day it ends, it helps to keep a lot of things in perspective...
Cherish the moments that you get with those you love,
Find solace in the temporariness of life.

We'll all float away.
No more pain.
Breaking into pieces of infinity.
Track Name: The Point of Pain
A cold corpse is unnerving, it is the physical form of death.
It's the inevitable result from living a life, I guess.
And I have often wondered what is the point of all this pain,
when no matter how I live, I just will die someday.


We're goin down,
we've sprung a leak,
the plane's on fire,
the fucking ship is sinking.

The worse part is,
it's our own fault.
Dug our own graves.
We chose hate instead of love.


To comprehend the consequence of our forefathers abhorrent decisions,is to begin to understand how we must think and act different, or the same mistakes repeat.

You must attain enlightenment.
Or all the same mistakes repeat.
You must attain enlightenment.
Track Name: How Sublime
She wakes up, fucked up, with her things spread across the floor.
Her make up, smeared across her face, she can't remember the night before.
She doesn't know why but she hurts.
Something is wrong and she can't put her finger on it.
Cuts and bruises she can't explain.
She is broken and she can't stop shaking.


But he was drunk, and having fun, and he didn't know he had the disease.
When her back was turned, he slipped it in her drink, so he could be sure it'd be a sure thing.

And no one said a word when she passed out.
No one said a thing when he carried her out into a room and made everyone leave.
No one ever said a thing.


So she went down to the hospital, she was anxiously awaiting her test results, but what she found out she could not believe.
The doctor was positive that she was positively positive.
She she went up to the top of her building and she jumped off.
And as she fell toward the pavement, all she could think is "Where were my friends?"
Track Name: Let Go/Give in
Elisabeth, is sick weak alone and depressed.
And she has been this way, for longer than she cares to admit.
And everyday, day after day, every day seems the same.
She smokes her cigarettes, and she hopes that soon it will end.


But if you don't let go, then I will not let go.
And if you don't give in, I promise I won't give in.


Nicholas, was young, he was smart, he was strong.
But he was depressed, and that weight was too much to hold on.
Even his closest friends, I was his closest friend, and there was nothing that I could do.
Sometimes the hardest path to walk is the only one you can choose.


Nick, don't you know that it isn't painless when you leave everyone in pain?
And I can't help agreeing with those that wont give in.

So if you don't let go, then I will not let go.
And if you don't give in, I promise I wont give in.
Track Name: Hetfield & Dreaming
Would it be better if I died and never tried and never wrote,
let my dreams stay dreams, forget the whole reason I moved.
Now I feel old and talentless, the bar I set I just can't meet.

...still I can't help but dream.


Cause all we ever have are dreams.
And we are all we have, when we aren't dreaming.
All we ever have are dreams and faith and hope.


I have seen this scene for what it is
and I refuse to be assigned to it.
I have seen this world, and for what its worth,
I will not let my dreams be dreams, no more.


All we ever have are dreams.
And we are all we have when we're not dreaming.
All we ever have are dreams and faith and hope.
Track Name: The Good Death
I don't wanna live my life alone.
And I, I'm not ready to just watch you go.
You taught me everything I know.
I watched you fight, I watched you struggle.


Now all I wanna do is die a good death with you.
Now all I wanna do is die a good death with you.


Even though I am grown,
the thought of losing you
turns me back into a little boy.

All that I wanna do is die a good death with you.
All that I wanna do is die a good death with you.
All that I wanna do is die a good death with you.
All that I wanna do is die a good death with you.
