1. My Creation
Written & Composed by: Gary Kliegl
Performed by: The First Effect
Lyrics:

Is it safe to sleep at night?
Cause I fear it just might be a full moon tonight
Alone beneath the crimson sky
Ignore the burns of a goodbye
But somehow we all look the same in the moonlight

Why am I the only one that seems to keep on giving, giving
How do you expect someone like me to go on living, living

Every time I lie awake
Insomnia is sinking in
(Is sinking in)
In a world born of my creation
A thousand scars under the skin
(Under the skin)

All these screams coming from a tear
I don’t think you’ll even know if I disappeared
I don’t need to walk away
Let my words come out to play
And let fo of all this hate controlled by fear

Why am I the only one that seems to keep on giving, giving
How do you expect someone like me to go on living, living

Every time I lie awake
Insomnia is sinking in
(Is sinking in)
In a world born of my creation
A thousand scars under the skin
(Under the skin)

Bloodshot eyes
I can’t hide
Everything I have inside
Watch the skies
Compromise
All the things you’ll sacrifice

Why am I the only one that seems to keep on giving, giving
How do you expect someone like me to go on living, living

Every time I lie awake
Insomnia is sinking in
(Is sinking in)
In a world born of my creation
A thousand scars under the skin
(Under the skin)

2. Recognize
Written & Composed by: Gary Kliegl
Performed by: The First Effect
Lyrics:

I’ve walked a lonely road along the avenue
Afraid to give away all that I thought I knew
How could I ever find a way to reach that place
I’ve always been secure within my own embrace

How could I open up to you
Ignore everything I’ve been through
I don’t think so
I don’t think so

Breaking down these walls that I’ve been safe behind
Brick by brick they fall until I apologize
Can you see me now there’s nowhere left to hide
In the open air for all to recognize

I know I’ve been a mess so far away from home
Sometimes I can’t believe that I can hold my own
Imagine if I gave you what you want from me
Would it be for a lie or for sincerity

What’s it mean to be connected
Push away all those affected
I don’t mean to
I don’t mean to

Breaking down these walls that I’ve been safe behind
Brick by brick they fall until I apologize
Can you see me now there’s nowhere left to hide
In the open air for all to recognize
Recognize

I’ve been a victim of my conscience
Don’t need to keep on going like this
No longer living with my regrets
Breaking through the limits of myself

Breaking down these walls that I’ve been safe behind
Brick by brick they fall until I apologize
Can you see me now there’s nowhere left to hide
In the open air for all to recognize
Recognize

3. Piece Of Me
Written & Composed by: Gary Kliegl
Performed by: The First Effect
Lyrics:

Into all the unknown
The dark abyss below
And I’ve been wasting all this time
On lies that I’ve been told
How much can we take
With everything at stake
But I’ll just bring it right back down
Cause I refuse to break


And every time I ache
I’ll make my mistake
This is where I’ll fake my desires

Heaven’s not so far
I don’t know where you are
This is how I’ll die and leave a little piece of me
So I won’t fade away
Cause I’m not built that way
Open up your eyes, silent your screams and disappear

Is this what you want most
Struggle to find what’s lost
But I can’t understand what’s mine
My mind’s on overload
I can’t take anymore
What are we looking for
In all the shadows of our lives
And all that I ignore

And every time I ache
I’ll make my mistake
This is where I’ll fake my desires

Heaven’s not so far
I don’t know where you are
This is how I’ll die and leave a little piece of me
So I won’t fade away
Cause I’m not built that way
Open up your eyes, silent your screams and disappear

Oooh
I know that I
Can’t turn back time
Oooh
I wish that I
Could hit rewind

And every time I ache
I’ll make my mistake
This is where I’ll fake my desires

Heaven’s not so far
I don’t know where you are
This is how I’ll die and leave a little piece of me
So I won’t fade away
Cause I’m not built that way
Open up your eyes, silent your screams and disappear

4. Finding Light
Written & Composed by: Gary Kliegl
Performed by: The First Effect
Lyrics:

Another day goes passing by
And I’m still unforgiven
I’m still unforgiven
I never gave up on myself
I’ve lost all my ambition
Lost all my ambition

Everytime I feel unworthy
Close my eyes and feel so dirty
How could I just make this go away
Everything still seems so blurry
Living in an endless story
Almost like a dream that fades away

As it burns, taking me higher
On the rise, still making mne stronger
Giving me a reason to break through
Finding light when darkness surrounds you

There’s still so much that’s left unseen
I’m faced with my decisions
Faced with my decisions
Reflections staring back at me
I’ve lost all sense of reason
Lost all sense of reason

Everytime I feel unworthy
Close my eyes and feel so dirty
How could I just make this go away
Everything still seems so blurry
Living in an endless story
Almost like a dream that fades away

As it burns, taking me higher
On the rise, still making mne stronger
Giving me a reason to break through
Finding light when darkness surrounds you

I’m finding reasons not to simplify
Come to terms with all I left behind
Standing for a cause I can’t defend
Until all that I know comes to an end

Everytime I feel unworthy
Close my eyes and feel so dirty
How could I just make this go away
Everything still seems so blurry
Living in an endless story
Almost like a dream that fades away

As it burns, taking me higher
On the rise, still making mne stronger
Giving me a reason to break through
Finding light when darkness surrounds you

5. Into The Corners
Written & Composed by: Gary Kliegl
Performed by: The First Effect
Lyrics:

You wonder why I fake a smile
Hope is gone it’s lost for miles
So I’m stricken to the core
And you won’t listen anymore
I guess common sense is out of style

Don’t tell me how it feels to be ashamed
Of all the failures all you’ve known
Keep Building me up to break me down
And why am I the only one to see
The darkness that’s consuming me
Into the corners of my mind

Keep swearing up and down I’m fine
No one knows this hell of mine
Where no one else has gone before
Fear can take a different form
Another victim of the signs

Don’t tell me how it feels to be ashamed
Of all the failures all you’ve known
Keep Building me up to break me down
And why am I the only one to see
The darkness that’s consuming me
Into the corners of my mind

So sick
I’m sickened by these thoughts
So numb to all that hurts
To all that hurts
I Fear
The nightmares that I’ve seen
And what I’ve done to me
I’ve done to me

Don’t tell me how it feels to be ashamed
Of all the failures all you’ve known
Keep Building me up to break me down
And why am I the only one to see
The darkness that’s consuming me
Into the corners of my mind

Don’t tell me how it feels to be ashamed
Of all the failures all you’ve known
Keep Building me up to break me down
And why am I the only one to see
The darkness that’s consuming me
Into the corners of my mind

6. Drag Me Under
Written & Composed by: Gary Kliegl
Performed by: The First Effect
Lyrics:

I’ve been wasting all this time on all the bridges that I’ve burned (Wasting time, wasting time)
And there’s nothing worse than waking up to lessons that I’ve learned (Waking up, I’m waking up)
Everything I thought I knew
A piece of me is still with you
Some things are just too hard to throw away (Throw away)
I often wonder why I try
But nothing’s got me satisfied
I guess I’ll never know and that’s OK (That’s OK)

Alone with my thoughts
And they say I’m too hard on myself
Cause I can’t just let go
Of the thought of you with someone else
Is it making me stronger
For me to sit here and wonder
Cause my head’s an abyss
And my mind wants to drag me under, drag me under

I’ve been waiting all my life for what I thought was paradise (All my life, all my life)
But I never thought that I would be the one to sacrifice (Never thought, never thought)
Why was I too blind to see
The truth that was in front of me
I guess I had to find out on my own (on my own)
Underneath all of my fear
Sometimes I wish I disappeared
I’m not afraid of facing the unknown (The unknown)

Alone with my thoughts
And they say I’m too hard on myself
Cause I can’t just let go
Of the thought of you with someone else
Is it making me stronger
For me to sit here and wonder
Cause my head’s an abyss
And my mind wants to drag me under… drag me under

Drag me under
Drag me under
Drag me under
Drag me under

Alone with my thoughts
And they say I’m too hard on myself
Cause I can’t just let go
Of the thought of you with someone else
Is it making me stronger
For me to sit here and wonder
Cause my head’s an abyss
And my mind wants to drag me under

(Drag me under)
Alone with my thoughts
And they say I’m too hard on myself
(Drag me under)
Cause I can’t just let go
Of the thought of you with someone else
(Drag me under)
Is it making me stronger
For me to sit here and wonder
(Drag me under)
Cause my head’s an abyss
And my mind wants to drag me under… drag me under

Drag me under…
Drag me under…
Drag me under…
Drag me under…
Drag me under…
Drag me under…
Drag me under…
Drag me under…

7. Fade Away
Written & Composed by: Gary Kliegl
Performed by: The First Effect
Lyrics:

I’d walk a thousand miles
So I could see your smile
You’re beautiful in every way to me
And I would wait a lifetime
In hope someday you’ll be mine
I’d give you nothing but the best of me

Angels with their wings will tend to fly away
Holding onto hope so tight that you might stay
I just can’t watch you go, But I won’t let it show
How much I miss you whenever you’re not here
How can I tell you and let go of this fear
And let this angel go, but someday you will know

Don’t wake me
You’re all I’ll dream of
And this is how this should be
I know how
Crazy I seem
I’ll pour my heart out to you
I don’t want this dream to fade away

I’ll be your rock to lean on
Cause this is where I belong
I’ll be right here to wipe away your tears
The things that I would go through
For just one chance to hold you
I don’t need words to tell you how I feel

Angels with their wings will tend to fly away
Holding onto hope so tight that you might stay
I just can’t watch you go, But I won’t let it show
How much I miss you whenever you’re not here
How can I tell you and let go of this fear
And let this angel go, but someday you will know

Don’t wake me
You’re all I’ll dream of
And this is how this should be
I know how
Crazy I seem
I’ll pour my heart out to you
I don’t want this dream to…

Fade away
Fade away
(And I don’t want this dream to fade away)
Oh, Fade away
Fade away
Fade away
(And I don’t want this dream to fade away)

Don’t wake me
You’re all I’ll dream of
And this is how this should be
I know how
Crazy I seem
I’ll pour my heart out to you
I don’t want this dream to…

Fade away
Fade away
(And I don’t want this dream to fade away)
Oh, Fade away
Fade away
Fade away
(And I don’t want this dream to fade away)

8. Someone Else
Written & Composed by: Gary Kliegl
Performed by: The First Effect
Lyrics:

Holding onto all my regrets
All the pain I hope she forgets
How I let this take control of me
And the way I’ll smile so casually
I’ve been hiding from myself for so long
Keep pretending that these feelings are gone
Doesn’t matter cause it’s not too hard to see
I’m struggling so desperately

I keep running round like I’m someone else
…. someone else
And I keep wondering why I’m not someone else
…. someone else

Would you question how I loved you
All the things that I would go through
And it seems we’re running out of time
You thought your words were so divine
Does it matter you were more than my friend
Always gave you my support in the end
But this time I guess I’ll have to draw the line
And finally get some peace of mind

I keep running round like I’m someone else
…. someone else
And I keep wondering why I’m not someone else
…. someone else

But I would rather take my chances
Consequential circumstances
Why don’t all my thoughts leave me alone
And I don’t want your understanding
Patronized and so demanding
No one in this world has ever known

I keep running round like I’m someone else
…. someone else
And I keep wondering why I’m not someone else
…. someone else

I keep running round like I’m someone else
…. someone else
And I keep wondering why I’m not someone else
…. someone else

9. More Than Ever
Written & Composed by: Gary Kliegl
Performed by: The First Effect
Lyrics:

I’ve been holding onto all these pictures of you
All the crazy things of all that we used to do
I’ve stayed up late at night in hopes that you would come through
An echo of a light brought back a memory of you

And I miss you more than ever
But I know you’re here with me forever
And I hope you always remember
That I’m missing you more than ever

I still hear your voice it echoes in my head
The price of silence is the things that go unsaid
The world’s just not the same without your silhouette
You’ve given me your strength in ways I’ll never forget

And I miss you more than ever
But I know you’re here with me forever
And I hope you always remember
That I’m missing you more than ever

More than ever, more than ever
More than ever, more than ever
More than ever, more than ever
More than ever, more than ever

I’ll do the best that I can
Until I see you again

And I miss you more than ever
But I know you’re here with me forever
And I hope you always remember
That I’m missing you more than ever

10. Under Pressure
Written & Composed by: Gary Kliegl
Performed by: The First Effect
Lyrics:

I know I’ve been a victim of my mind
So now I’ll draw the line
The end of my ambition
Push away the roots of all my fear
Take me away from here
So far from my decision

Does anyone else feel the pressure
I don’t want to feel like this will last forever
It’s been going on so long
And I’m tired of being strong
Is there any body else that’s under pressure

Giving in to your apology
While I was blind to see
Your path through misdirection
I tried to stay away from all that’s wrong
But you were all along
The one that needs correction

Does anyone else feel the pressure
I don’t want to feel like this will last forever
It’s been going on so long
And I’m tired of being strong
Is there any body else that’s under pressure

Gave away the better part of me
Suffocate on air that I can’t breathe
Gave away the better part of me
Suffocate on air that I can’t breathe

Does anyone else feel the pressure
I don’t want to feel like this will last forever
It’s been going on so long
And I’m tired of being strong
Is there any body else that’s under pressure

Does anyone else feel the pressure (Does anyone else feel the pressure?)
I don’t want to feel like this will last forever
It’s been going on so long
And I’m tired of being strong
Is there any body else that’s under pressure

Gave away the better part of me (Does anyone else feel the pressure…)
Suffocate on air that I can’t breathe (Does anyone else feel the pressure…)

12. In Front Of Me
Written & Composed by: Gary Kliegl
Performed by: The First Effect
Lyrics:

I opened my eyes the first time I saw you
It’s not a surprise that I’m looking just like you
I hope that you’re proud of the person I am
I’m constantly trying the best that I can
You’ve given me hope through all of my tears
And stood by my side through all of these years
You’ve always been there every time I’m afraid
And given support to the man that you’ve made

Hold on to your light
And everything that’s in your sight
All that I could ever need
Has always been in front of me
Hold on to the moment
And all the times that go unspoken
Don’t mistake my apathy
I’ll always need my family

I’ve had my best friend since before I remember
You’ve always been there to put me back together
Through all of the struggles that I had to see
You were the first to be there next to me
I wanted to do all the things you were into
I wanted to know all the same things that you knew
By now we are almost exactly the same
But that’s what it means to be sharing our name

Hold on to your light
And everything that’s in your sight
All that I could ever need
Has always been in front of me
Hold on to the moment
And all the times that go unspoken
Don’t mistake my apathy
I’ll always need my family

Hold on to your light
And everything that’s in your sight
All that I could ever need
Has always been…
Right in front of me

Hold on to the moment
And all the times that go unspoken
Don’t mistake my apathy
I’ll always need my family

Hold on to your light
And everything that’s in your sight
All that I could ever need
Has always been in front of me
Hold on to the moment
And all the times that go unspoken
Don’t mistake my apathy
I’ll always need my family

13. Supernova
Written & Composed by: Gary Kliegl
Performed by: The First Effect
Lyrics:

Hide all my emotions inside
For no one to see…
Closed off from the world, all I’ve known
Is the monster in me…
Voices in my head on repeat
Echoes my insanity…
Why I’m so misguided it seems
To believe your treachery
Oh

Nothing that I say or do
Can take away what I’ve been through
It’s over…
I’ve just gone supernova
Nothing that you say to me
Can take away these memories
It’s over…
When I’m done crossing over

I feel like I’m losing control
Of my own destiny…
Frozen by the fear in my heart
And the uncertainty…
Slipping into my own madness
And my mind’s on replay…
Choking on the air that I breathe
Suffocating each day
Oh

Nothing that I say or do
Can take away what I’ve been through
It’s over…
I’ve just gone supernova
Nothing that you say to me
Can take away these memories
It’s over…
When I’m done crossing over
Crossing over

Lift me up
Let me go
Don’t give up
Let me know
Wake me up
Slept so long
Build me up
Staying strong

Lift me up
Let me go
Don’t give up
Let me know
Wake me up
Slept so long
Build me up
Staying strong

Nothing that I say or do
Can take away what I’ve been through
It’s over…
I’ve just gone supernova
Nothing that you say to me
Can take away these memories
It’s over…
When I’m done crossing over

Nothing that I say or do
Can take away what I’ve been through
It’s over…
I’ve just gone supernova (I’ve just gone supernova)
Nothing that you say to me
Can take away these memories
It’s over…
When I’m done crossing over

When I’m done crossing over
