My Former Self

These days when I look back

I feel I have control and

My emotions stay in check

Enough to let me go

 

To another place

Where my head stays clear and

The anger and frustration seem to disappear

 

Of all the things I’ve learned

I Guess

 

My former self would not break down at all

But brick by brick we’re watching him fall

 

Seems like a thousand years

Since we laughed aloud

Like a couple normal people

Stationed in a crowd

 

Sometimes I ask myself

Why am I so scared

You probably felt the same way

Wondered if I care

 

Let it all out this time

For good

 

My former self would not break down at all

Brick by brick we’re watching him fall

 

Remind me where we came from

Remind me where we’ve been

Tell me where I’m going and

We can part as friends

 

Remind me where we came from

Remind me where we’ve been

Tell me ‘bout the future and

We can start again

 

Tumble In The Rough

I can’t eat

I can’t sleep

I can’t live

I can’t cry

I can’t die

I can’t walk

I can’t talk

I can booze

I can booze and steal your shoes so I can move

Tumble in the rough

 

I’m lookin’ for a new mediation

Still lookin’ for a new way to fly

Don’t want any plastic validation

Not looking for a new way to die

 

I made excuses for a million lies

But all I got was humble kidney pie

So what

 

I can’t eat

I can’t sleep

I can’t live

I can’t cry

I can’t die

I can’t walk

I can’t talk

I can booze

I can booze and steal your shoes so I can move

Tumble in the rough

 

I’m lookin’ for a new stimulation

Quite bored of those inflatable ties

I’m lookin’ for a new rock sensation

Dead fish don’t swim around in jealous tides

 

I made excuses for a million lies

But all I got was humble kidney pie

So what

 

Can’t live, can’t buy new shoes

Tumble in the rough

Lived on a summer with new shoes

Tumble in the rough

Can’t live, can’t die new shoes

Tumble in the rough

Lived on a summer with new shoes

Tumble in the rough

 

I can’t eat

I can’t sleep

I can’t live

I can’t cry

I can’t die

I can’t walk

I can’t talk

I can booze

I can booze and steal your shoes so I can move

Tumble in the rough

 

I made excuses for a million lies

But all I got was humble kidney pie

So what

 

Reborn

I revel a new day

In the sunshine

I’ll show you a new way

When I started off

I made a pact with myself

If I ever was holding on too tightly

I’d take a step and rely on someone else

But now I feel everyone takes this too lightly

 

Summer is just around the corner

But I’m sure I’ll find any excuse

To write you new song but this time around

I’ll enjoy you, really enjoy you

I feel as though I’ve been reborn

 

I put faith in every relationship

But never again will they be one sided

If you only do for you and me for me

Then the whole thing gets terrible one sided

Or maybe it’s just me

 

Summer is just around the corner

But I’m sure I’ll find any excuse

To write you new song but this time around

I’ll enjoy you, really enjoy you

I feel as though I’ve been reborn

 

I revel a new day

In the sunshine

I’ll show you a new way

 

Misery

When I look back at my life

I used to carry ‘round with me a pocket full of rage

I used to make things that are nice

Seem so much out of reach I was like a tiger in a cage

 

Misery seems to follow me

Tryin’ and tryin’ to consume me

Maybe destiny has got a hold of me

Laughing she’s reaching through the depths of me

Through the depths of me

 

I was thinking about you yesterday

It made me think what might have been for you and me

If our paths had no crossed anyway

Would the end have changed so much or differently

 

Misery seems to follow me

Tryin’ and tryin’ to consume me

Maybe destiny has got a hold of me

Laughing she’s reaching through the depths of me

Through the depths of me

 

You all up in my face

But I won’t let you steal my sunshine

Conform is such a waste

I will never let you steal my sunshine

 

Coffee, Cigarettes and Judge Judy

This couch become my home

Judge Judy my best friend

Most nights I sit alone

I sleep through daylight again

My diet coffee

Double, double and cigarettes

My ashtray overflows

I could not care any less

My mind is razor sharp

I’m almost thin as a blade

I think I’d start to laugh

But I’m afraid I’d break

 

In the end it’s always lonely

And the T.V. almost echos

Not to say that you don’t see me

I look for you outside my window

 

Served my country well

Flew to a foreign land

Survived a living hell

Slept with this gun in my hand

No matter where I go

I stay there long enough

That place becomes my home

Is this the place I’ll end up

So now here I sit

What does Judy have in store

I’m waiting on my son

Is that the key in the door

 

In the end it’s always lonely

And the T.V. almost echos

Not to say that you don’t see me

I look for you outside my window

 

I smoke a cigarette real slowly

They’ve been the hardest things to let go

I couldn’t live without my coffee

Or the sound of her T.V. show

 

Let me show you around

I’ll tell you what it looks like in my head

I’d love for you to stay for a while

I’ll try my best not to vent

If you can’t then I understand

But I’ll miss you when you’re gone

It was good to see you more than usual

Ya know

 

In the end it’s always lonely

And the T.V. almost echos

Not to say that you don’t see me

I look for you outside my window

 

Rival

Woke up to another day

I wish this feeling would go away

Now It’s been so long

Since I’ve been outside without my shirt on

I wanted to feel the sunlight on my skin

Is it so wrong to wish that we all could start again

 

I want to drive and go just to be alone

So no one will see me again

No eyes to see my lies

All the imperfection lines

My rival is just my friend

My eyes are clear again

 

I wanted to feel the sunlight on my skin

Is it so wrong to wish that we all could start again

 

Now I’m locked away

I occupy and hold the key

To my own cell

Well I propose a self imposed vacation from

Those who know

I worry about who they will tell

I listen when they exhale

 

I daze away to a place that comforts me

I close my eyes I soon forget

That it’s only a dream

 

Is it so wrong to wish that we all could just start again

 

I daze away to a place that comforts me

I rest my eyes I soon forget

That it’s only a dream

I daze away

I daze away

 

Spiritus Mundi

Was it ever high enough to consider yourself at rock bottom

Skin so beaten and your body’s so weak

Your eyes are all red

Hide away the lines as

You pull your hood over your head

 

I thought I saw you walk by today

She tells me it’s all in my head

She’s says I’m crazy and I need to find God instead

Find God instead

Maybe I’ll meet him like you and

The rest of the dead

Rest of the dead

 

I guess it’s your time

I know that heaven can wait

Somehow I made the mistake

Of thinking you’re fine

I hate to see you this way I will continue to pray

Sort of on the outside

Things will continue to change

I change my mind everyday

 

All through the mind field

Where I live in my head

I thought about the things I have seen

Moving on is letting go

What remains to be seen

If I am as capable as you staying clean

But that’s just a dream

 

I guess it’s your time

I know that heaven can wait

Somehow I made the mistake

Of thinking you’re fine

I hate to see you this way I will continue to pray

We are all here for you

Sort of on the outside

Things will continue to change

Am I prepared for the day

 

You keep telling yourself

You’ll never do it again

Keep telling us all you’ll never do it again

You keep messin’ around

You won’t have any friends

Keep telling yourself

You’ll never do it again

You’ll never do it again

It won’t happen again

 

But it will happen again

 

Time to dream

Spiritus Mundi

 

A Horse With No Name

On the first part of the journey

I was looking at all the life

There were plants and birds and rocks and things

There were sand and hills and rings

 

The first thing I met was a fly with a buzz

And the sky with no clouds

The heat was hot and the ground was dry

But the air was full of sound

 

I’ve been through the desert on a horse with no name

It felt good to be out of the rain

In the desert you can remember your name

Because there ain’t no one for to give you no pain

La, la

 

After two days in the desert sun

My skin began to turn red

After three days in the desert sun

I was looking at a river bed

And the story it told of a river that flowed

Made me sad to think it was dead

 

You see I’ve been through the desert on a horse with no name

It felt good to be out of the rain

In the desert you can remember your name

Because there ain’t no one for to give you no pain

La, la

 

After nine days I let the horse run free

‘Cause the desert had turned to sea

There were plants and birds and rocks and things

There was sand and hills and rings

The ocean is a desert with its life underground

And a perfect disguise above

Under the cities lies a heart made of ground

But the humans will give no love

 

I’ve been through the desert on a horse with no name

It felt good to be out of the rain

In the desert you can remember your name

Because there ain’t no one for to give you no pain

La, la

 

Seventy-One Trips Around The Sun

 

Instrumental

 

Living Stronger

No doubt you are the enemy

Too many people suffer in your wake

The un-killable killer

Waiting for the moment you can take it from them

 

So we pull you, cut you, push you out the door

You’re back again, you’re coming back for more

The un-killable killer

But that don’t mean that we are backing down

 

I will stay with you when your light fades

Leave you never

Your hand inside of mine

I see your smile last forever

 

Sometime we are called to fight again

We won’t retreat and won’t surrender

To the un-killable killer

Just know that we will fight you until the end

 

I will stay with you when your light fades

Leave you never

Your hand inside of mine

I see your smile last forever

 

Wander

Alone I wander on an empty road

But the fork seems a little bit bent

I clouds which way I should go

Because these days all I really want now

Is closure and peace of mind

But I know that roads a slow grind

 

I’ll take this time ahead

Try not to focus on the ending

I’ll save what time is left and

Find the answers I’ve been seeking

 

Letting go

With everything I have inside me

 

So I’m searching for a remedy

God give me strength to make my stand

I put one foot out and try to put the other out

Surrender who I am

To move along at least until the pain is gone

More like myself again

Becasue dangerously we tend to push our sanity out

Until the end

 

I found myself again

It just took a little looking

 

Wandering alone

I feel like all the time

Wandering alone

I feel like all the time

Wandering alone

I feel like all the time

 

Still I wander on this empty road

Only this time I’m not alone

Clear now which way I should go

 

Out Of Body Experience

It’s six a.m. again and

I feel like I’ve been running all night

I’m tied up to my bed

But I get again loose

‘Cause it makes me feel right

It confuses me

Like an astral travel

Out of body experience

But then I run back home

Because I don’t want to die a sleepy death

 

Push the limit to the sky

It’s the only way to fly

 

I can’t ignore the pressure

I can’t ignore the pain

I can’t ignore the reasons

I look for my escape

 

Push the limit to the sky

This is the only way to fly

You won’t be the only one just try

 

Push the limit to the sky

This is the only way to fly

You won’t be the only one just try

You won’t be the only one just try

 

 

 

 

 

 

Born To Follow

Living with no excuse
So I preach what I follow
If it's all borrowed time
Should I live for tomorrow
What you bring is brainwashing
But my mind isn't listening
If you know what I know
Then you know we were born to follow

Goodbye thought control
I'm standing on the brink of letting go
Of all things that I have learned
I'm dreaming of a future I call my own

Got home late one night
Turned on the TV set
Can't make out his face
Just a hazy silhouette
Reaches out asks me to send
Lots of money that he can spend
If you know what I know
Then you know we were born to follow

Goodbye thought control
I'm standing on the brink of letting go
Of all things that I have learned
I'm dreaming of a future I call my own

Rub the dust out from my eyes
Not a place I recognize
Plug my ears until they're done
Naive to think it's all but one


Road To Nowhere

You can take what you want and leave me with nothing
Out of self pity not gonna cry for no one

I'm tired of feeling like I'm stuck in the road
More like the road to nowhere at all
Nowhere at all

I keep a list of names of people I don't like
Let me congratulate you making number one
I'm tired of feeling like I'm stuck in the road
But your a speed bump
And I'm running over you

I'm picking myself up proper
No time for me to falter
My will today is stronger
You can't stop me

Hey I don't care if I come off too hard
Hard on you
I spit where you lay
And rest for good

I'm tired of feeling like I'm stuck in the road
More like the road to nowhere
So I'm off the road to nowhere


Space In Time

I took a drive and I cannot lie
I went straight back to your old house
There was no sign of anyone
So I stopped on by just to check it out
Our spot on the porch doesn't look much different to me than it did
Just some holes from the rain and our initials from when we were kids

Bye Bye the innocence is gone
You didn't need me,  you're never coming home
But you will always be that kid to me

Forever
There's a scent I can't forget
The smell of summer creeping in
How many mornings did we get up
Before the sun just to take it in
If our space in that time really is forever
Well you know it is
All the years that passed don't diminish
All the things we did
So fare well but this ain't our goodbye
Until we meet on the other side

Bye bye the innocence is gone
It didn't hit that you're never coming home
But now your memory lives on with me
Forever

All the things we did
Seems like yesterday
Our childhood fix
I took a drive and I cannot lie
I went straight back to your old house
There was no sign of anyone
So I stopped on by just to check it out
Our spot on the porch doesn't look much different to me than it did
Just some holes from the rain and our initials from when we were kids
Our spot on the porch
That's our spot on the porch
And it was good thinking of you old friend
Again


Room With A View

I try to open my eyes so I can leave here alive
Don't need you standing above
I throw the salt on my wounds
I say I'll be back soon
Is this me showing the love
My wrists are delicate things
I've got no ice in my veins but I'm cold on the inside
If I'm given the chance I will get up dance
My way around to the outside
And go!

Don't matter how far I go I never travel alone
Don't need you hanging around
I heal the cut with my mouth and pull the ugliness out
I barely make a sound
My neck is built like a swing it can hold everything
Even feet that dangle
I think you've proven your point with your invisible joints but you are far from an angel

Once again when the day breaks
That's when I make my escape
But I'm really never as far gone as I think
The bars here a little much as you can tell
And you do tell yeah
You call it a room with a view
but I freeze on the floor of my cell
I wish I was like a super man
You know with a super plan
But my fate is already set
Been here since I was just a kid
But then I grew up big
This letter is as free as I get
This letter
This letter is as free as I get


One Big Rush

I walk inside here just to take it in
I see a room so empty
But when the lights are close to going dim
One big rush coming over me

I feel the power of your energy
Created by the noise
Where silence is your only enemy
That one big rush destroys

Something magical
Almost spiritual
That I feel inside
Like a thunderbolt
Rush incredible
Makes me feel alive

We never think about tomorrow
When we are one with you all
It means so much I can't imagine
Ever feeling sick of it all

Something magical
Almost spiritual
That I feel inside
Like a thunderbolt
Rush incredible
Makes me feel alive


Super Overload

She's running back to me again
It's harder than it's ever been
I'm tired of being her fixer man
Can't tell if I'm coming or going

She's so mean but then again
She's not mine to let go
But when she's here her love's like a super overload

By the time I go to pick it up
My phone has rung like a hundred times
She'll call me obsessively if she thinks that she has slipped my mind

I can't stop what you do to me
Your love it brings the worst of me

I guess that's the way it's supposed to be
I am addicted to the misery

She's so mean but then again
She's not mine to let go
But when she's here her love's like a super overload

And when we're alone she's delicate
And her sweetness brings me closer in
She wakes up with a look of content for the first time
In a long time

She's so mean but she's not mine to let go
But when She's here her love's like a super overload
She's so mean but then again
She's not mine to let go
But when she's here her love's like a super overload



Common in Disguise

Everyone I know is so delusional
They'd all sell their souls for a chance to get inside
But they don't know they're among the typical
They all think they're special
Just common in disguise

Well I know exactly who you are
You're the fucking joke from around the way
I know exactly who you are
Inside

They are the ones that hate everything
When all they ever do is simple and inane shit
They claim that they will change the world
And they'll say "I'll be the one here laughing when they idolize my name" yeah

I know exactly who you are
You're the fucking joke from around the way
I know exactly who you are
Inside

Do you wanna go for a ride I will explain myself I know where you're coming from
Believe me I know too well
But this is a chance to turn it all around
And wake up feeling happy
But you won't do it


Star

Good things happen when you come around
I'd be happy just to play along
But I'm feeling it's more than just pretend
And if you gave me your heart we'd make it more than friends

She keeps her focus on me I can't break the weight of her stare
When I try to that's when she shies away
But if she gave me her heart I'd try not to hesitate
One look at your face and man it hit me I'm taking it all to heart
'Cause you make me feel an all time happy
You are my lucky star
Yeah it's alright

The other day I saw you I meant to
Tell you something to make you smile
If I'm honest it wouldn't have come out that way
But if you gave me your heart I promise to try anyway
One look at your face and man it hit me
I'm taking it all to heart
'Cause you make me feel an all time happy
You are my lucky star
One look at your face and man it hit me
I'm taking it all to heart
'Cause you make me feel an all time happy
You are my lucky star


Chasing the Tiger

Don't want to put you down 
No matter how much I say I'm going to
It's like the biggest joke around 
It's like a drug that won't stop calling you 
I don't mean it's an impossible thing
But it's far from easy 
Believe me I know better 

Won't lie and say it feels good 
Truth is it feels so far away 
Far away 
Can't say I haven't missed you 
But your a devil and it's all a game I must be willing to play 

This one time when I fell asleep 
Things were moving slow just like a fantasy 
It almost seemed like it was mine to keep 
But then I woke up and it was back to reality 
My will is weaker but my callus strong 
From chasing the tiger 
Believe me I know better 
Won't lie and say it feels good 
Truth is it feels so far away 
Far away
 Can't say I haven't missed you 
But your a devil and it's all a game I must be willing to play 

I'll make it easy one more time again
I'll make it easy one more time again
I'll make it easy one more time again 
I'll make it easy 
One more time 

Won't lie and say it feels good 
Truth is it feels so far away 
Far away 
Can't say I haven't missed you 
But your a devil and it's all a game I must be willing to play

Best Of Me


Should I go to California
To find the girl that I let get too far
If I drive on down the highway
I'll add the miles but I'll count them with my heart

Can we go back home and be a family
I know damn well you haven't seen the best of me
If I say this time that you've been on my mind
An honest man right now without a doubt I'd be

I spent too long on the sidelines
Now the girl I love is the girl I've lost this time
And I hope it's not forever
Because I've stayed away and I paid for all my crimes

Can we go back home and raise a family
I know damn well you haven't seen the best of me
If I say this time that you've been on my mind
An honest man right now without a doubt I'd be

Face To Face

I hold out my hands and cup the Earth
The dirt flies away and I'm wondering
If someone else across the world
Is feeling the same way I feel right now

It's making me think that life's to short to waste
Hating each other when we'll probably never meet face to face.

A girl plays in Chicago
She is no different than the girl in Shanghai
They both love playing the Princess
They are the future so give this a try

It's making me think that life's too short to waste
Hating each when we'll probably never meet face to face

Let's dance!

A Kid In The 1980's (White Adidas)

I can't deny I'm obessified
With everything that takes me back to being a kid in the 1980's
From Mr. T to Billie Jean
I want to moonwalk up and down your screen like he did on MTV again.

(Oh yeah)
We're going out tonight
(Oh yeah)
We're gonna take a ride
(Oh yeah)
We're going back in time
Like Marty and Doc and we won't stop until we're back in 1985

Beep, beep sounds the horn as they beep us and we go
Creep, creep and we're wearing White Adidas baby
Beep, Beep sounds the horn as they beep us and we go
Creep, creep and we're wearing White Adidas

Now it used to be a distant memory
Of going down the street with my headphones singing something 80's
Oh like Purple Rain or Every Breath You Take
I'm Hungry Like The Wolf but I got no time for The Breakfast Club here lately

(Oh yeah)
I got the shoes on
(Oh yeah)
Like Run did in that song
(Oh yeah)
We want to Walk This Way but It's Tricky to rock
like DMC did with Jam Master Jay


Beep, beep sounds the horn as they beep us and we go
Creep, creep and we're wearing White Adidas baby
Beep, Beep sounds the horn as they beep us and we go
Until the morning comes

I push play on my Walkman
And I listen to my favorite jam
I rewind and repeat and do the same thing over and over and again and again


Beep, beep sounds the horn as they beep us and we go
Creep, creep and we're wearing White Adidas baby
Beep, Beep sounds the horn as they beep us and we go
Until the morning comes.

Chasing Maybe

I want to say what's on my mind
But I don't want to leave the wrong impression
Many years ago I would cry
Or lie awake in my own obsession over someone like you
Well now

I'm feeling lately
Like I'm chasing maybe out

I'm back here ready to start again
No longer green no longer weathered
Because I know it's easy to fall again
Into that trap so I'm watching everything
And our time together?  You'll see

I'm feeling lately
Like I'm chasing maybe out

You look at me
I look at you
Let's play a game that I am losing

I'm feeling lately
Like I'm chasing maybe

Because you bring me down kid

A Song For You

Filling the days up with our lives from working all the time
But you and me we've got it made
Hearing your voice makes my heart sing and on top of everything
You and me we've got it made

I'm feeling good tonight
I'm feeling like nothings gonna stop this feeling of my heart so alive
From every time you come around with that look in your eyes

Let me tell you about this girl
She really is something and even though my words wont do her justice
Just close your eyes and if you can
Really try to imagine because me alone without her equates to almost nothing

So I'm feeling good tonight
I'm feeling like nothings gonna stop this feeling of my heart so alive
From every time you come around with that look in your eyes

We're always searching
And most of the time when we find we don't realize
But those are the best kinds
Because you never see it coming it just sort of happens

She's Gone

9am I awake and I look around but the place feels empty
I walk down the hall to see what's going on
I find the coffee she left me

I thought I knew it all because
I thought laughing was good enough
How can one be so blind

She's gone
She's got a ticket and now she's flown away
To a new place and I'm left behind
And she's gone forever

I lift my spoon and think about the love notes she'd write
Carved into the sugar bowl
But now there's nothing but sweet with nothing on top
Only memories of growing old

I thought I knew it all because
I thought holding you was good enough
You needed more from me

She's gone
She's got a ticket and she's flown away
To a new place and I'm left behind
And she's gone forever

One more look and then I'll put it away
This pictures happiness has already started to fade away

I thought I knew it all because
I thought simple was good enough
But she needed more from me

She's gone
She's got a ticket and she's flown away
I'll never see her face anymore
Because she's gone forever

Love (around you)


You call me up and tell me
That you are on your way
Something so simple
Brings a smile back to my face

If I ever lose you
I would never be the same
It's like the world stopped spinning
And I'd be thrown away
Because it feels like home
When you're lying in my arms
You put your head on my chest
And I throw my arms around you
Around you

I think about you everyday
Don't want to be too much
Because it's like the pilots say
You go up, up, up but eventually you come down

If I ever lose you
I would never be the same
It's like the world stopped spinning
And I'd be thrown away
It feels like home
When you're lying in my arms

You bring me up until I'm flying
There's no more room for my denial
I keep my love on the inside
I'll do my best to show on the outside
On the outside

If I ever lose you
I would never be the same
It's like the world stopped spinning
And I'd be thrown away
Because it feels like home
When you're lying in my arms
You put your head on my chest
And I throw my arms around you
Around you


Faith
by George Michael

Well I guess it would be nice
If I could touch your body
I know not everybody
Has got a body like you

But I've got to think twice
Before I give my heart away
And I know all the games you play
Because I play them too

Oh but I
Need some time off from that emotion
Time to pick my heart up off the floor
And when that love comes down
Without devotion
Well it takes a strong man baby
But I'm showing you the door

'Cause I gotta have faith...

Baby
I know you're asking me to stay
Say please, please, please, don't go away
You say I'm giving you the blues
Maybe
You mean every word you say
Can't help but think of yesterday
And another who tied me down to lover boy rules

Before this river
Becomes an ocean
Before you throw my heart back on the floor
Oh baby I reconsider
My foolish notion
Well I need someone to hold me
But I'll wait for something more

Yes I've gotta have faith...


Only Human

I watch the moon surrender to a cloud in the sky
I compare it to the dark clouds that distill my mind
For seven months I ran around to find out why I'm here
A little voice inside my head says relax and have no fear

Maybe it's insecurity showing it's ugly head
Or maybe it's my conscience that swears I'd be better off dead
Anyway

Gotta find, gotta find a way
Gotta finally let it go
It's been too long my friend
You see I'm only human
Gotta find, gotta find a way
Gotta finally let it go
I keep my promises
I just can't keep from going slow.

I sit across from you inside a crowded room
You hit me with that crooked smile that you take away too soon
The worst thing that could happen to me now is you keeping your distance
Or at least stay away long enough to build resistance

Every now and again I think of you and hear your voice
And I have to remind myself that staying wasn't a choice
Well anyway

Gotta find, gotta find a way
Gotta finally let it go
It's been too long my friend
You see I'm only human
Gotta find, gotta find a way
Gotta finally let it go
I keep my promises
I just can't keep from going slow.


All My Energy

I put my life into your hands
Treat me like I'm family
The Sun, the waves, I make my stand
The Swell my only enemy

I feel I've lost my way
Underestimate

I hit you with a full attack
I take the risk of falling back
Let the rains come down on me
Just enough to breathe

My body moves to fast
I've taken this a little far
She pulls me out, will I come back?
She wonders who we think we are

I feel I've lost my way
Underestimate

I hit you with a full attack
I take the risk of falling back
Let the rains come down on me
I take a breath and count to three
I go 1, 2, 3... all my energy
I keep it moving constantly
One more burst again.


Destiny

It's time to put away these memories
Into a box so I won't see them anymore
They're over there on the floor

As a matter of fact you won't see me again
What's the point of being friends
If we can't get along?
So I'm moving on

I will leave it up to Destiny
Because I think she knows what she's doing this time

Driving my car with the radio on
I turn up the sound to my favorite song
And everything's all right
Yeah everything's all right

I will leave it up to Destiny
Because I think she know's what she doing this time

An empty heart I'd like to think
Has its own way of dealing the pain
A fatal blow to wash away
Whatever feelings remain
To make me content to be alone
and that's ok


It's time to put these memories
Time to put these memories away


Rival

Woke up to another day
I wish this feeling would go away
Now it's been so long
Since I've been outside without my shirt on
I wanted to feel the sunlight on my skin
Is it so wrong to wish that we all could start again?

I want to drive and go just to alone
So no one will see me again
No eyes to see my lies
All the imperfection lines
My rival is just friend
My eyes are clear again

I wanted to feel the sunlight on my skin
Is is so wrong to wish that we all could start again?

Now I'm locked away
I occupy and hold the keys to my own cell
Well I propose a self imposed vacation from those who know
I worry about who they will tell
I listen when they exhale

I daze away
To a place that comforts me
I close my eyes
I soon forget
That it's only a dream

Is it so wrong to wish that we all could start again?

I daze away
To a place that comforts me
I close my eyes
I soon forget
That it's only a dream

I daze away
I daze away


Polly Anna

I woke up this morning, opened my eyes
Polly Anna still on my mind
A clever girl that makes up her own answers
Says she doesn't believe in love
Says love is a cancer

She's a good girl underneath
And she takes the part of me
That's in between her
To love her is to know her
Definitely
Polly Anna would you trust me?

Now we drive alone hop in my car and go
To a far out place we drive down to Mexico
Polly puts her arm over the back of my seat
She knows how to move me while being discreet

She's a good girl underneath
And she takes the part of me
That's in between her
To know her is to love her
Definitely
Polly Anna do you trust me?

You lock your eyes onto mine
When you know you've crossed the line
When I swear to you I'm gone
You're evil in your way
With all the games you play
I guess that's the price for fun


Some Things Never Change

Seems like forever
Since we fought about it
Just keep me from that other side

I'll stay and listen
But I won't pretend I'm missing
The fear that I used to hide
I see through it
So I'm not gonna do it
I've been there too many times

What it is
Is what it was
And some things never change
But it's good to see the real you
With your head on straight anyway

I can't recall something as beautiful
Like the color of your eyes

I dream in shades of grey
And it seems like shadows popping up
They keep the pain away
Long enough for my escape

What it is
Is what is was
And some things never change

I can't recall something as beautiful
Like the clarity in your eyes
I can't recall something so beautiful
Like the color of your eyes

He's coming back again
He's got a shooter friend
I turn to face the door
And I swear to God I'm never coming back again
They never let it go
Because their lives are ran by a wrecking ball
And waking up straight is a scarier thought
Than living in a life that's comatose

Do you know why he said
I lived a lie instead.

I can't recall something as beautiful
like the color of your eyes

Some things never change
And some things never change


About A Fool

It's late
I wonder what you're doing
See your face in a picture
I wonder who you're loving

If my love for you
Ever clouds my judgement
Then I'm a fool that needs to be punished
I'd lie If I could
Just to make you believe in me

Why do you call me up
What do you want from me
I only hear from you when he's away
You throw your arms around
We tumble to the ground
And all the drama it dissapates

If my love for you
Ever clouds my judgement
Then I'm a fool that needs to be punished
I'd lie If I thought
It would make you believe in me

Come on, come on and let me go
Come on, come on be reasonable baby
Come on, come on and let me go
Got to find my own way baby

I'd lie if I thought
It would change things for you and me yeah
I'd lie if I thought
It would change things for you and me now

Got to let me go
Got to make things right


Mind Grind

I guess I'm ripe for the taking
I've got to move real fast
I shouldn't count all my blessings
Until I learn from the past
My fear is taking me over
I don't feel like yesterday strong
My strength it forms in a second baby
I just can't keep it that long

Paranoid I ask myself
What's the point of no return?
Got to get it all together, man... Oh yeah
Contemplating many things
Is this real or just a dream?
Don't want to do anything that I'll regret in the morning

Well it's a quarter past midnight
My eyes are locked on the wall
Is that my shadow waving?
Is that my ghost in the hall?
My body lays without a sound
My heart ticks like a bomb
Will I make it til morning
I reach out to sound the alarm
Wake Up

Paranoid I ask myself
What's the point of no return?
Got to get it all together, man... Oh yeah
Contemplating many things
Is this real or just a dream?
Don't want to do anything that I'll regret in the morning


No Regrets

Here I stand before you
I rack my brain for the right thing to say
I want to take a picture
So I remember the way you look today

The first time I saw you
You stood across the room
The moment our eyes met
I knew nothing would do
But to have you

Tomorrow I'm leaving on a journey
That will forever take me away from you

Reaching out toward you
I know one thing will never change
That's the way I adore you
Because no one else has made me feel this way
In this delicate season
In which our worlds have come apart
Understand my reasons
And know you'll have a place in my heart

Tomorrow I'm leaving on a journey
That will forever take me away from you

The air is cold on my skin
My jacket barely keeps me warm
When I exhale
The disappointment seems so obvious
My face doesn't hide a thing
Doesn't hide a thing
A thing

I let you go
I wonder how you live your life
Whether you are alone
It's hard to ignore
When you were my favorite

Tomorrow I'm leaving on a journey
That will forever take me away from you
Tomorrow I'm leaving on a journey
that will forever take me away from you

Come on and take me away
Come on and take me away


O.B.E.

It's six a.m. again
I feel like I've been running all night
I'm tied up to my bed
But I get again loose and it makes me feel right
It confuses me
Like an Astral Travel
Out Of Body Experience
But then I run back home
Because I don't want to die a sleepy death

Give it to me
I've got nothing to lose
I said give it to me
I've got nothing to lose

I can't ignore the pressure
I can't ignore the pain
I can't ignore the reasons
I look for my escape

Give it to me
I've got nothing to lose
I said give it to me
I've got nothing to lose
Then I close my eyes and
I begin to move
