Track Name: April Again
April was a lie, December was my secret
Buried under waters made of life and breathing too infrequent
I didn’t know the lies would speak to me just like the truth
I would take it out on everyone and act the fool

She don’t feel the way that I feel, does she?
No, she does not.
Does she love me like I want?
No, she does not.

Brilliant and alone, I hung out there to emulate the stars
Never wanted nothing much, I never meant to go far
If I had a million dollars I’d spend it all in days
Dump my good into my soul to fill the void of pain

She don’t feel the way that I feel, does she?
No, she does not.
Does she love me like I want?
No, she does not.

Psychic dissonance emanates from deep within the unself
Sad Ophelia floats away in mists upon my bookshelf
I didn’t know the lies would speak to me just like the truth
I would take it out on everyone and act the fool

She don’t feel the way that I feel, does she?
No, she does not.
Does she love me like I want?
No, she does not.
Track Name: Brutal
I'm on up, with a long way to go down
Let's spread all of our thoughts around,
And play pick-up with your mood swings
I'm salivating for my piece to eat

You're in love with your love for hatred
And the sweat will seal your eyelids,
With that need to compete, that need to be,
Need to be real neat

And we'll blow all of your brains out
We'll blow all of your brains out
We'll blow all of your brains out
We'll blow all of your brains out

We'll take everything you're feeling
And throw it right back to you
A mirror of your ego
Blown up in happy tunes

And we'll take all the money
That you have to give
That you have to give
That you have to give

We'll blow all of your brains out
We'll blow all of your brains out
We'll blow all of your brains out
We'll blow all of your brains out
Track Name: One Day Even You Will Be Old-Fashioned
The words just don't make sense
It's not coincidence
That they can't understand

On the sidewalk in the rain
Hide the sound in soft refrains
Say a few words, be polite

But the feeling's underpinned
By a noise from deep within

And I want to watch it burn
Every last father and son
To the ashes will return

All the while it falls apart
And I'm right back at the start
Of another one just to see,

That the hardened shell I keep
Doesn't interrupt my sleep
I'm just colder to the touch

But the feeling's underpinned
By a noise from deep within

And I want to watch it burn
Every last father and son
To the ashes will return

I've got a little left in me yet,
Though it gets harder to find in the dark
I don't want to give up
Come run, come crawl, come find my footsteps
I've lost my way

And I want to watch it burn
Every last father and son
To the ashes will return
Track Name: Untimely End
Alone, alone we wait and I,
Don't really want to feel this way
Alone, alone we wait and I,
Don't want things to be this way

And if there's nothing else that you can take away,
Remember then,
That you have got to change your ways

We'll give our lives for God forbid we grow that much older
Let's lay it down for an untimely end
We'll give our lives for God forbid we grow that much older
Let's lay it down for an untimely end

Parade, parade the blind
And never show the sighted what's on our minds
Parade, parade the blind
And never touch them when they are left behind

We'll give our lives for God forbid we grow that much older
Let's lay it down for an untimely end
We'll give our lives for God forbid we grow that much older
Let's lay it down for an untimely end
Track Name: Low Life
There's only enough for one more to go around
Dangerously close to another breakdown
The body feels broken when the heart is heavy set
Internally scouring several floors of unrest

And the fleeting, fair lovers that you've thrown away
Come back to haunt and silently mouth your name
No word received, no voice or tongue to console
But the ever-growing feeling you've lost all control

Low life
This don't feel right
I'm on great height
Let's watch the lights and let them blind us for a long time
And if we change our minds...
Low life
This don't feel right
I'm on great height
Let's watch the lights and let them blind us for a long time
And if we change our minds
Then God forgive us, we'll go back to what we used to be

There's only enough for one more to go around
Dangerously close to another breakdown
And the fleeting, fair lovers that you've thrown away
Come back to haunt you just for one more day

And it's too far gone to give a damn anymore
No false nostalgia's gonna bring back control
And it's the best I've ever felt
And it's the worst I've ever felt
To hell with fixing myself

Low life
This don't feel right
And if we change our minds
Then God forgive us, we'll go back to what we used to be
Track Name: City Of Hate
Tell me a story that you’ve never told anyone else
Promise to give me every little bit of yourself
Or better yet, tell me something that you think will make me feel
Like I’ve got a heart that’s good enough for you to want to steal

Tell me your lies to my face in the dark
With a glint in your eye and a smile that’s fake
As I slowly become something I never thought I would be
In the heart of Hate

Give me your eyes so you don’t have to see anymore
Give me your tongue and tell me your lies
Or better yet, act like you don’t know what I could become
Get out of here before you die

Tell me your lies to my face in the dark
With a glint in your eye and a smile that’s fake
As I slowly become something I never thought I would be
In the heart of Hate
Track Name: A Place For My Soul
Seems it isn't easy to break my heart
Now that I have learned to play this part
Waking every morning wherever I go
Seeing that there's no way to slow my roll

And it doesn't matter whatever I do
I see into the awful heart of the truth
Cursed with a burden that's heaven-sent
Everything I do is excellent

Don't leave me in the cold,
In darkness on my own,
Shivering in biting snow

Oh, my soul could use a better home
Another place to go
Under golden dome
In glory to behold

I wanna see the angel with broken wings
Soar across the night as she sings
I'm lifted to the spirit at the edge of the sky
Thankful that I got to get so high

And in the fugue of eternity
She is in perfect harmony
Cursed with a burden that's heaven-sent
Everything I do is excellent

Don't leave me in the cold,
In darkness on my own,
Shivering in biting snow

Oh, my soul could use a better home
Another place to go
Under golden dome
In glory to behold
Track Name: Everything For Us
I totally understand your need for symmetry
Take me home to beautiful worlds and say
"Come with me"

There's everything for us,
A future we could make up,
And all we need is a little trust

You try to understand
That I have no plan for whatever comes,
But all we need is a little bit of trust

Forward's the only way time will ever flow
No matter how you try and resist,
It won't let you go

There's everything for us,
A future we could make up,
And all we need is a little trust

You try to understand
That I have no plan for whatever comes,
But all we need is a little bit of trust

You never know which way the wind is gonna blow
Keep your options open,
Somehow it's gonna show

There's everything for us,
A future we could make up,
And all we need is a little trust

You try to understand
That I have no plan for whatever comes,
But all we need is a little bit of trust
Track Name: The Great Within
If you wanted more then you shoulda said so,
But you're a lady and it ain't your style
So give me one moment more to make up the words
I promise you this, they'll make you smile

Even if the stars burn out tonight, will you
Go with me to see this ghostly light turn blue?
Or will you still be here found by yourself entombed,
Imagination running wild and free with you,
Dreaming big in TV scenes of roads and towns,
Letting demons pour your tea and hang around?

If I got lost someway that I didn't know,
If we're talking feet instead of miles,
If I couldn't swim, I wish someone woulda let me know,
Instead of sinking in denial

Even if the stars burn out tonight, will you
See if dancing slowly before you face the truth,
Like a ghostly flame inside your soul, it burns
Speaking a language you made up and learned?
Several moments later again it speaks
It says "I know what it is you need to seek,
Every single door out there's a dead end,
Look into the mirror and you may find a friend"
Track Name: Some Glory In Creation
I wonder what it is that makes my soul,
Is it even quantifiable?
Is it infinite outside of space,
With no evidentiary trail to trace?

These barriers refuse to subside,
They just watch my thoughts collide
With the overwhelming notion we're all alone
And these answers will always remain unknown

I wanna know what it is,
That underlies everything
I wanna see some glory in creation

I wanna look, and I wanna touch
An entirely new sensation,
I wanna see some glory in creation

I wonder what it is we really are,
Hanging in the orbit of this rural star,
Far from the center of the Milky Way,
In a universe where substance just decays,

In spirit made of something like energy,
Going on forever immutably,
With never-ending motion we seem to go
Travelling fast into the great unknown

I wanna know what it is,
That underlies everything
I wanna see some glory in creation

I wanna look, and I wanna touch
An entirely new sensation,
I wanna see some glory in creation
Track Name: NYC
If I see the enemy always trapped inside my memory,
Then that's what's become of always being the lucky one
'Cause I've fought, and I've lost,
Let me never realize the cost,
The damage is done.
Let me play, I'm having fun

I do not know why I should mind, I should mind,
'Cause one day I will die and wish I'd given it a try

As you fade and drift away from whatever I do with my day,
I see your ghost in empty halls softly afloat
And I smile and slowly say, "Don't you know that I'm happy?
And that pain has got nothing to do with me"

I do not know why I should mind, I should mind,
'Cause one day I will die and wish I'd given it a try

I do not know why I should mind, I should mind,
'Cause one day I will die and wish I'd given it a try

I will not just survive, I will thrive, I will thrive
So as fast as I can run,
New York City, here I come
Track Name: Winter Thoughts
You, you're the summer in my winter thoughts
Your kisses blossom with Spring's sweet warmth
Come back to me

And we sat together under breaking lights,
And under the cold, dark night,
You let me be

But remember when,
You came, and you called, and you begged, and you pleaded for
Love
You called, and you begged, and you prayed, and you pleaded for
Love

You, you're the summer in my winter thoughts
Your kisses blossom with Spring's sweet warmth
Come back to me

And we sat together under breaking lights,
And under the cold, dark night,
You let me be

But remember when,
You came, and you called, and you begged, and you pleaded for
Love
And you called, and you begged, and you prayed, and you pleaded for
Love
