Track Name: The Dark
They wonder why I hang my head,
Why I spend so much time in my bed,
I shouldn't complain, I'm not in pain and my body's been fed.

They tell me I've got it good,
That maybe I'm just a little misunderstood,
But, that's okay, 'cause they found a way to make me act how I should.

I need to clear my head of all this negative thinking,
I need to find a way to behave that will keep me happy without drinking,
But, I'm not without the dark.

They tell me to settle down,
Find one thing and put my feet on the ground,
But, for now they measure my worth by the labour I exert.

And no they don't ask why I'm numb inside,
Why it's so difficult to just get by,
As long as everything is smooth sailing and I avert my eyes from looking around,
So they can tell me.

I need to clear my head of all this negative thinking,
I need to find a way to behave that will keep me happy without drinking,
But, I'm not without the dark.
Track Name: Worst Enemy
I closed my eyes in the sun,
But they wouldn't stop tearing up,
I wanted to run,
But I had you in my arms.

If I would've lied,
Would you be here by my side?
If I would've tried,
Would I be there by your side?

But, if I came and I saw and I wanted it all,
If I came and I saw and I wanted it all,

Would I let go?

Well, it's clear as the day that I'm meant to hide away,
I have nothing to give and less than nothing to say,
If I wanted the truth I would stay here and talk to you,
With nothing to lose, I would stay here, but I refuse,

But, if I came and I saw and I wanted it all,
If I came and I saw and I wanted it all,

Would I let go?

Although it appears the choice is mine,
To give into my fears or fight to survive,
But there's a place in my head I tend to go when I'm alone

But, if I came and I saw and I wanted it all,
If I came and I saw and I wanted it all,
If I came and I saw and I wanted it all,
If I came and I saw and I wanted it all,

Would I let go?
Find a home,
Move into,
The light with you?
Track Name: Lost in the City
Two steps ahead and one step back,
I'm growing up, but I don't want that,
Losing my voice, rusty limbs,
Make too much noise in the stillness.

And peaceful words don't mean that much,
As long as you give enough,
And power to the best of us,
They'll find a place for the rest of us.

A broken mind is an hourglass,
Simply waiting for time to pass,
Somewhere in between the cracks,
And well it appears I'm lost in this city.

Tender wounds will not heal,
No matter how well they are concealed,
By rubber bands and plastic spoons,
A take out cup, no need for room,
I have enough, I am content,
To live my days and make my rent,
To watch my mind slowly melt,
Into a stain on the cement.

A broken mind is an hourglass,
Simply waiting for time to pass,
Somewhere in between the cracks,
And well it appears I'm lost in this city.

Waste of a smile, waste of a breath,
Giving into ignorance,
And power lines will all fall down,
When lightning strikes and hits the ground,
Illuminates the world around.

A broken mind is an hourglass,
Simply waiting for time to pass,
Somewhere in between the cracks,
And well it appears I'm lost in this city.
Track Name: Island
Tell me what I've been doing wrong,
Show me a place where I belong,
It's not that easy being here,
Show me so I can see it in the mirror,

It's not that I'm not self-assured,
Just that the lines have all been blurred,
And right from wrong is wrong and right,
And it makes no difference in the dark or the light.

And well I'm feeling a little lost from time to time,
It's getting harder every day to find some peace of mind,
But what I lack is a common path that leads to an end.

I don't know what to do with this place,
I don't know what to do with myself in front of your face,
I don't know what to do with this place,
I don't know what to do with myself in front of your face,
In front of your face.

I know that I could have it all,
If I dream big instead of small,
But all I want is to avoid the rush,
But I guess that's asking too much.

But I know no one can be an island,
Nothing can change without the use of violence,
And such a place will never be for as long as we live.

I don't know what to do with this place,
I don't know what to do with myself in front of your face,
I don't know what to do with this place,
I don't know what to do with myself in front of your face,
In front of your face.
Track Name: Beautiful People
Well, I was waiting on the side of the road,
For the wind to go down,
And there was nowhere left for me to go,
And so I stand around,
I stare along,
At all you beautiful people,
Heading wherever you have to go.

And there was nothing left for me to say,
My words won't resound,
And I'm hoping that maybe someday,
What I lack will be found,
I linger on,
For all you beautiful people,
Too look down upon.

But all I want is your love,
And all I need is your love,
But I wasn't, no I wasn't, good enough,
But I wasn't, no I wasn't, good enough,
For you to see.

The damage is done and I'm forced to lie down on the road for a while,
I breathe in the air and slow down and look up and it forces a smile,
That carries on,
For all you beautiful,
Who wake up to go home.

And all we want is love,
And all we need is love,
And know that, know that you're always good enough,
And know that, know that you're always good enough,
And know that, know that you're always good enough,
And know that, know that you're always good enough,
For the world to see.
Track Name: Lonely Road
I was livid by the time I came down from my second wind,
And I drown in vertigo - all the place that I should have been,
And I let the blinds descend on distractions that come in excess,
I withdraw into myself and shut down with all my weaknesses.

But, I wait and I hope that someday everything will be fine,
Everything will be okay,
And I stay, try to keep myself calm while I wait for the storm to let up on its own

I know, I'm traveling down a lonely road,
There's a place at the end that I wanna call my home,
But to get there from here I must go it alone.

There was a calming sense of sadness that came with a sense of relief,
And I'm getting over the madness that shocked my into disbelief,
And with this fatal attraction I get closer to what wasn't there,
And on the distant horizon I see it broken and beyond repair.

I know, I'm traveling down a lonely road,
There's a place at the end that I wanna call my home,
But to get there from here I must go it alone.

But wait, why should I give up everyone that I love for everything that I want?
And take everything that I am and where I belong is right where I'm standing,

But, I know, we're traveling down a lonely road,
There's a place at the end that we wanna call home,
But to get there from here we must go it alone.
