Track Name: The Life I Live
I hope the lives that we're living
Spin so far out of control
That we forsake one another
And claw our way out of this hole
But the days are getting shorter
And we sink a little more
We've built ourselves up a prison
And chained one another to the floors
With no locks on the doors

I don't really want it
And you can't take it
It's over
Just listen to me
When I say I won't even remember your name
When I'm walking out your door
Walking out your door
Walking out your door

I'm on the verge of collapsing
When I finally wrestle free
But you you've got your meathooks inside me
And I can feel my dependency
But I can see the life just beyond me
And I relish in the sound
Of the wind rushing my face
And my feet pounding hard against the ground
And if I get lost I hope I'm no found
If I get lost I hope I'm not found

I don't really want it
And you can't take it
It's over
Just listen to me
When I say I won't even remember your name
When I'm walking out your door
Walking out your door
Walking out your door

I feel your breath hot behind me
And for a moment I have to stop
But I'm just far too pissed off
To let that matter drop
I've seen your lies in the shadows
I'm tired of living in the shade
Someday someone somewhere
Is gonna teach you how to be afraid
And when that comes
When that day comes
I'm bringing razor blades

I don't really want it
And you can't take it
It's over
Just listen to me
When I say I won't even remember your name
When I'm walking out your
Walking out your
Walking out your door

Track Name: Low
Last look just left me standing
My feet chose to abandon
My legs right there on the sand
Though I didn't want to listen
Well I just had to listen
Big words and big demands
He said he was a father
But I knew not to bother
His flow of stale prophecy
His gaze was long
And it felt all wrong
His eyes hungry and staring at me

Then he said, "Watch out! Watch out! Watch out!"

Uh oh
Up high
Clouds roll in to blot the sky out
This is like nothing that I've been through
In my time my time my time
So I want you to know that
I believe you
Oh no
Look out
Rain comes down to wash our sins out
In my pocket I've got my hero
By my side my side my side
I guess that's why we keep our secrets low

He spoke of wicked weather
Said we'd survive together
As clouds rolled in from the sea
It began to hail
And the wind did wail
As I was dropped to my knees violently
Just then I read the signs
And in between the lines
And knew what I had to do
I glared at the sun
With the sound of a gun
I lowered my head and pushed on through

And I heard, "Clang! Clang! Clang!"

Uh oh
Up high
Clouds roll in to blot the sky out
This is like nothing that I've been through
In my time my time my time
So I want you to know that
I believe you
Oh no
Look out
Rain comes down to wash our sins out
In my pocket I've got my hero
By my side my side my side
I guess that's why we keep our secrets low

Last look still has me standing
My whole body abandoned
As my mind drifts out to sea
But I'm not alone
I'm just far from home
Oh won't you come do a little dance with me

Uh oh
Up high
Clouds roll in to blot the sky out
This is like nothing that I've been through
In my time my time my time
So I want you to know that
I believe you
Oh no
Look out
Rain comes down to wash our sins out
In my pocket I've got my hero
By my side my side my side
I guess that's why we keep our secrets low

Track Name: Wake Up
My body's quiet
But something in me sleeps
Laying dormant
Waiting waiting waiting
Don't listen to me
It's possible I mean you harm
I've sensed the changes
Now I'm sounding the alarm

Wake up
From your sleep
And learn to run for cover while you still can
Wake up wake up
From your sleep
And hide away your fears be a man
That's what I am

Big transformation
Improvement I don't know
A seeds been planted
Now I grow grow grow
But it's too late now
To end my shifting ways
I've aired the warning
Now the beast stirs where it lays

Wake up
From your sleep
And learn to run for cover while you still can
Wake up wake up
From your sleep
And hide away your fears be a man
That's what I am

I'm kicking up dust
I'm causing a scene
The bones in my body are mean
I'm pushing through rubble
I'm side-stepping curves
I'm finally getting everything that I deserve

Wake up
From your sleep
And run while can
Wake up wake up
From your sleep
And hide away your fears be a man
That's what I am

Wake up
From your sleep
And learn to run for cover while you still can
Wake up wake up
From your sleep
And hide away your fears be a man
That's what I am

Track Name: Peace of Mind
I hope you're watching cause I'm living up till the end
Sleeping all day because I'm going out every night
Wake up some times not remembering where I've been
And doing things that make everything alright
I saw your friend last night when I was on the town
Bought her a drink and guess what now she's my friend too
You wouldn't believe some of the crazy things that went down
And some of the crazy things that that girl can do

My eyes don't see too clearly
The drugs are taking hold
Sometimes I'm bound to lose control
You think you've won no no
Not this time
No more walking backwards
I'm looking forwards
I'm getting peace of mind

I'm going going going don't bother trying to catch me
My motor's running there's no knowing where I'm bound
Just watch yourself when I'm giving off this heat
And give me space when I come around
Last night at work just as I was set to leave
That little vixen of a cashier rang her chime
She worked her fingers through the buttons of my sleeve
I locked the door and we put in overtime

My eyes don't see too clearly
The drugs are taking hold
Sometimes I'm bound to lose control
You think you've won no no
Not this time
No more walking backwards
I'm looking forwards
I'm getting peace of mind

Little bitter baby do you still scream my name
When you're clawing at the backs of other men
And do they know about the game that we've been playing
I'm too old to make this same mistake again
I don't care about how many guys you see
What you're doing or the ways you spend your time
I have to admit this really isn't me
Gotta get back in touch with me myself and mine

My eyes don't see too clearly
The drugs are taking hold
Sometimes I'm bound to lose control
You think you've won no no
Not this time
No more walking backwards
I'm looking forwards
I'm getting peace of mind

Track Name: What a Strange Road
This is who I am
A handful of friends, but none that understand
I can't wait for tomorrow
I'll meet you there with a blackened right hand

A bucket of salt to mend my ways
Leads me back to the womb
The other side swears they've been there for years
Climbing up to the moon

What a strange road we travel
While we watch it unravel before our eyes

The hypnotist said, "It's all in your head"
And sent me on my way
A bottle of rye should fix this again
At least that's what I pray

What a strange road to wander
As we blame one another for our mistakes

I'm not gonna be like him
The warning bell sounded but I missed it again
It's a hard pill to swallow
Knowing that I've failed
Knowing that I'm frail

Picture me now tidy and neat
Not a worry on my mind
I'm sure that'd be nice, but I've drowned in my vice
And I've killed my own kind

What a strange road to follow
As I wade from the shallows and into the deep

Track Name: Eclipse
I woke to the stinging sound
Of rain falling at my heels
As cold as the winter can hold
The burning of the land's sole
A harvest that won't yield
Salted earth this tetric ground

Block out the sun again
An air sweeps through the skin
A flood bleeds from our hands
And honesty's just too constricting

Our rate of progress must be slowed
While we can still amend
And time is slipping away
But we're content to watch it decay
And leave it to braver men
While we collect what we're owed

Block out the sun again
An air sweeps through the skin
A flood bleeds from our hands
And honesty's just too constricting
And I blocked out the sun again
An air sweeps through the skin
A flood bleeds from our hands
And honesty's just too constricting

We fall under the landslide
And concede that we won't heal
Lose hold of our duty and right
And make goddamn sure
That our egos overshadow the loss we feel

Block out the sun again
An air sweeps through the skin
A flood bleeds from our hands
And honesty's just too constricting
And I blocked out the sun again
An air sweeps through the skin
A flood bleeds from our hands
And honesty's just too constricting

Track Name: You Inside My Head
Listen up pretty that's just an excuse
Cause deep down inside you know it's never that justified
It's a city of broken dreams
Retractable in their own disease
Well I'm just a fool with nothing to prove
Got my hands in my pockets with the grin of a tool
The only thing that I know
Is that the last thing on my drunken lips is

Girl I'm in
Let me the one who's last regret is letting
You inside my head
Girl I'm in
When I'm in
I'm in all the way

I feel you inside spark my wildest desires
Let the match hit the ground burn the slickest of liars
Brighten the day with nothing to say
But a glance and wink yes it's time to play
Well I'm still a fool with nothing to prove
Got my hands at her waist with the grin of a tool
The only thing that I know
Is that the last thing on my sex-stained lips is

Girl I'm in
Let me the one who's last regret is letting
You inside my head
Girl I'm in
When I'm in
I'm in all the way

Girl I'm in
Let me the one who's last regret is letting
You inside my head
Girl I'm in
When I'm in
I'm in all the way

Track Name: Steam
The voices in my head are saying
"I don't know what to do with myself"
It's Friday night and I could use a little help
Up where the music's playing
A little girl steps into the scene
Got dark eyes that pierce through me
Turning water into steam

Oh good god my head is floating
So fine you could call her obscene
She got the tools to keep your fingers clean
See how she's walking slowly
Turning heads as she passes them by
Licking those killer lips and
Winking that's devil's eye

Give me just one night
To say it's over
I wanted just one night
To love you sober

So close I feel her breath upon me
I use my arms for holding her tight
I got plans that'll last us through the night
Oh good girl play the part you're made for
Take my hand and lead me away
To a nice dark quiet somewhere
And get ready to play

Give me just one night
To say it's over
I wanted just one night
To love you sober
Give me just one night
I wanted just one night
Release me

Give me just one night
To say it's over
I wanted just one night
To love you sober

Up where the music's playing
A little girl steps into the scene
Got dark eyes that pierce through me
Turning water into steam

Track Name: Turkish Delight
Open up the door and face what you've begun
Step out into the snow and face this new world as one
Beware your grave mistakes
May lead you astray
You'll learn your place before it's over
The time is close at hand
To melt this wintry land
And for young kings to take it over

The witch will run
When coming face to face with Adam's son
The winter's over
Time for the young to reign
O'er the hills and planes
Remember the golden age
One day we will need their help again

Make your way past the dam the wolves are drawing closer
Betrayed by your brother's hand he knew not of the danger
Look sharp for his return
After all he has learned
He's gonna be there in the end
After the sacrifice
Aide from the jaws of mice
All come together to defend

The witch will run
When coming face to face with Adam's son
The winter's over
Time for the young to reign
O'er the hills and planes
Remember the golden age
One day we will need their help again

Follow the white stag it leads you to the wood
Go back through the door back home it's time you should

The witch will run
When coming face to face with Adam's son
The winter's over
Time for the young to reign
O'er the hills and planes
Remember the golden age
One day we will need their help again

Track Name: Big Plans
I've got a plan
It's taken me years to get just right
I've drawn it up
And worked it out
Now all I need is one big start
I'm on demand
And I'll work it out if it takes all night
I'm wanted bad
I want it good
And we all need to play our part

I'll make 'em believe
I'll make 'em believe
I'll make 'em believe it's true somehow
When the east will fall
When the west will leave
And I'm back to watch with a little less awe

I've got a plan
But it won't accomplish anything on it's own
Got to be taken up
And set in motion
Got to get those wheels spinning around
My hands
I couldn't use until they'd grown
Will be taken up
And set to work
Along with my feet upon the ground

I'll make 'em believe
I'll make 'em believe
I'll make 'em believe it's true somehow
When the east will fall
When the west will leave
And I'm back to watch with a little less awe

I'll make 'em believe
I'll make 'em believe
I'll make 'em believe it's true somehow
When the east will fall
When the west will leave
And I'm back to watch with a little less awe

Track Name: Dystopian Age
I awake
To a burning that I can't explain
And my head is on the floor
And sometimes my body needs a little help to get by
And every hour of every day I'm alive

There's something inside
That's draining away all the life that is stored up in me
But in time I will
Discover that my body is flush with disease

My arms my hands
Are up to their old tricks again
And I'm lost within the swell
And over and over again there's a struggle to breathe
My mind my body are fighting over someone that's me

And I can't decide
My body wants filth and my mind's begging to be washed clean
And inside there is
A voice that's crying, "Load me up and set me free!"

I awake
To a burning that I can't explain
And my head is on the floor
And sometimes my body needs a little help to get by
And every hour of every day I'm alive

There's something inside
That's draining away all the life that is stored up in me
But in time I will
Discover that my body is flush with disease
And my mind has simply let go

Track Name: Standing Tall
My reputation
A story I know well
I'm hearing what they offer
But not buying what they sell
I am not
What they say I've become
This is my affliction
Rabbit run

I hear their words pass in the wind
I hear those words echoing lies
I am not a liar
I just carry the disease
Now I run to you and fall
Down on my knees

The room goes quiet
As soon as I come in
Eyes all staring at me
My patience wearing thin
Who then can I turn to
Who could bare my name
I see your hand extended
And I'm game

I hear their words pass in the wind
I hear those words echoing lies
I am not a liar
I just carry the disease
Now I run to you and fall

They will never break me
So long as you are here
They will never break me
So long as you are near
I have no fear

They keep on talking
Trying to cut me down
Tripwires spread about me
But I am still around
And you're there at my should
Lifting me above it all
Providing my salvation
Standing tall

I hear their words pass in the wind
I hear those words echoing lies
I am not a liar
I just carry the disease
Now I run to you and fall

They will never break me
So long as you are here
They will never break me
So long as you are near
I have no fear

They will never break me
So long as you are here
They will never break me
So long as you are near
I have no fear

Track Name: Dragonslayer
Hey there Dragonslayer
Make haste toward the mountain
Our lady fair was stolen away
While she was bathing near the fountain
The beast was fierce and vile
A killer creature I must concede
So grab your sword, your shield, your ax
And ride hard upon your steed

Seven men have tried and seven men have burned
Now brave Dragonslayer it's your turn

He blazed into the forest
Setting the ground on fire
He made his way past lesser beasts
And through the muck and mire
But still he was left wanting
The beast was no where to be found
The only sign it left behind
Was the black and deadened ground

Still the fire burns within his eyes
The fight won't end until one of them dies

Will you be here tomorrow
Or will the beast get the better of you
Make your way down to the hollow
Hear the crunch of bone and sinew
He turned his head and saw the beast upon the right
Dragonslayer it's time to test your might

He charged the beast with valor
Slashing at it's haunch
But the fire grew inside the beast
With each strike that he'd launch
And then the beast did wail
The earth trembled with the sound
As fire lit the sky
Our hero lay bleeding on the ground

Will he rise up and find the strength to defend
Or will this be our slayer's mortal end

Now the fires rise
Now the beast does die
Go go Dragonslayer
