Real Life 04:07
Say all you've wanted, wanted you right here tonight? Words in a letter or just a ruse, "have we arrived." And now the heart you kept from use is realized. Just off of Mission it came true, its real life. That breeze you wished for chilled you blue, Fears come freely That path you traveled rattled you its not so easy I must have come as a surprise I realize So let down easy here tonight, and I'll lower my sights. That breeze you wished for chilled you blue, Fears come freely That path you traveled rattled you its not so easy Everything you wanted Everything you knew You asked for NOTHING and got it. Just a glimpse of truth. That breeze you wished for chilled you blue, Fears come freely That path you traveled rattled you its not so easy

Jaded (free) 03:38
Everything you said you needed, turned out to be true and the time you go without, is payment that was due on and on it seems we're overrun with waking dreams and the distance in between is slow to close for you This time we waited far too long we're jaded and i'll never be alone again she cried say i know how long you've waited for something that is real what you get is torn and frayed and you don't know how you feel on and on it seems we're overrun with waking dreams and the distance in between is slow to close for you This time we waited far too long we're jaded and i'll never be alone again she cried it seems i've never been without you its clear but still i ought to know....

Burned Again 04:21
You say, I am not the problem thats alright, i've got enough of my own. these words littered on these faded pages, they form a line that always leads back to your door. i leave it all to chance i leave it all to chance and i... you say, i am not contaigous, thats alright, i dream much more than i breath these words littering these faded pages i burn em all i leave the story to my memory i leave it all to chance i leave it all to chance and i get burned again but what if i could see you see you clearly is it something that i'd already know its not enough to be there not even nearly or else was it all just for show could you let it go

Another Moon 03:11
And you know it's all the same, these visions that you claim, are driving me away. That the night should come to this and bring me what it is the smell of flowers and the rain. Another moon is rising, Sad Enough but silent, All you want is here today. And you know you're asking for what I don't keep in store but still its up to me to trade the concrete for the stars you catch your shade in bars I'm underneath the trees. Another moon is rising, Sad Enough but silent, All you want is here today. Like a fire that burned out, all your pain and all your doubt, All i Know is it's Okay. OK.

Seems so loud turn it up again and then i will yeah, i seem so proud turn the other cheek and then i will I'm not going to be buried I'm not going to be too high, no too high... and if i wanna push you back would you try to tell me, try to tell me and if i wanna paint it black would ya try to stop me, try to stop me? I'm lookin at the sidewalk tryin to find some way to keep you around yeah, I'm lookin at the sidewalk tryin to find some way to keep you around I'm not going to be buried I'm not going to be too high, no too high... and if i wanna push you back would you try to tell me, try to tell me and if i wanna paint it black would ya try to stop me, try to stop me?

So, you say you never mind the minefields that you find well dig a little deeper, won't you? And your running out of space within the milky way it all seemed so important in the end. You never needed much, perhaps just a little shove. Slow it down by going faster Everything you touch is tragic Just like you but all brand new Cut it live or multitrack it either way its made of plastic just like you but all brand new and you never had a way of knowin what to say but baby you're still talkin anyway i never had knack for graspin what you lack so baby if you need me i'm out back. I never needed much, perhaps just a little shove. Slow it down by going faster Everything you touch is tragic Just like you but all brand new Cut it live or multitrack it either way its made of plastic just like you but all brand new And its all your way and you still got a lot to say come to find its not okay it comes out anyway.

Tongue Tied (free) 04:14
The sunshine knives cut through the blinds but barely speak of outside. The shadow's square crawling there has boxed you into your life. The summer's finally over. The mirror's tongue is tied. You probably Should Have Told Her. Because now it sounds like LIES. The Firefly light, set you alight, but you held your tongue one more time The clouds that drift they watched you sit, like a tired drum keeping time. The summer's finally over. The mirror's tongue is tied. You probably should Have told Her. Because now it sounds like LIES. The winter chill brought nothing but further reason to try The part of life the sacrifice is back to swallow its pride. The summer's finally over. The mirror's tongue is tied. You probably should Have told Her. Because now it sounds like LIES.

It's all been done It's all been done It's all been done before. You wear your heart out On your sleeve Like you could take some more. Everything's a pattern as we circle 'round the star It all comes round, It all comes back just off from where you are. Still We Believe Still We Believe You're holding on to something that you never thought you'd need. Still We Believe turn around turn away what's written on your heart all the years stacking up while stumbling through the dark. Everything's a pattern as we circle 'round the star It all comes round, It all adds up just off from where you are. Still We Believe Still We Believe You're holding on to something that you never thought you'd need. Still We Believe
10.
So you hope this night might just define you or justify you and what you've seen? But in truth these things are never certain so draw the curtain upon that dream. Like waves of the sea that wash over me you leave me drowning here without a reason. I'll be the one you wanted. So you want a road untouched to follow a life to borrow and call your own. Driving on but seemingly unraveled you never travel quite where you need. Like waves of the sea that wash over me you leave me drowning here without a reason. I'll be the one you wanted.
