Track Name: Straight and Narrow
Well, it began when I was just a kid,
My mind was a blank slate,
Impressionable,
Yet taking on the world,
And I made my own fate,
The balance was lost,
When the battle had been won,
And I was put in my place.

Oh how they swarmed me…

I have become something that I'm not
Quite sure I should be proud of,
Eyes on the ground while I'm biting on my tongue,
And I'm calm because I'm high strung,

I hope they will like me,
I speak so politely.

Down the straight and narrow…

Oh how tame can you keep this animal? (x4)
On the straight and narrow…

Why have the years so quickly come to pass,
And I'm left here eating dust with my
Conscience intact and the will to run amok,
But I don't think I can last in this,
State of confusion,
Owned by delusion

On the straight and narrow…

Oh how tame can you keep this animal? (x4)
On the straight and narrow
Track Name: Slow Down
Wide awake, I dream,
Where would I go?
What would I do?
Who would I be?
There is no way that I can escape this life I lead,
I am too caught up in this misery.

What is there to do?
When you want more than what this life can give to you,
Do you slow down or pick up the pace and go outside?
But, I am too caught up in this state of mind.

Slow down take a look around,
Way down is where it can be found,
Slow down, just slow down,
Just breathe,
Don't make sound.

The pleasure is all mine,
I take it all in,
I feel insecure and left behind,
You say I want more but what I want is for you to leave,
Because I'm too caught up in what you think I need.

Slow down take a look around,
Way down is where it can be found,
Slow down, just slow down,
Just breathe,
Don't make a sound.
Track Name: Tunnel Vision
When I was that young,
My heart was that old,
And the way you made me feel,
Was much too strong,
I was young or so I'm told.

And the places I would go,
And the things that I would do,
Well, it wasn't for me,
It was all for you,
I was young, I had no clue.

But they would say that I was going to fall in love,
A matter of time and space and people in my world,
And if I enjoy the way I choose to live my life,
Then it will be easy enough to find someone to live beside.

My days are filled with shame,
And the thoughts that you consume,
And this pleasure and pain,
It comes from all of the pining that I do.

But they would say that I was going to fall in love,
A matter of time and space and people in my world,
And if I enjoy the way I choose to live my life,
Then it will be easy enough to find someone to live beside.

Loneliness, is better kept far away,
And patience is a virtue when I know someday,
I will feel that way,
And the darkness comes,
From what I shut out,
I focus in,
On the light ahead,
My empty bed,
Alone again.

But they would say that I was going to fall in love,
But only with one person I can't live without,
And tie them with everything I have in life to spare,
And it will be easy enough to live as long as they are there.
Track Name: Wait
Wait.
There has to be a way that I can stay…
Wait.
I know I'm acting a little bit strange,
Today.
But don't let it get you down,
You're the only one I want around,
And so wait,
You just have to be patient with me…

Wait.
I know it's not the same…
And you hate,
The way that I have changed,
But don't let it get you down,
You're the only one I want around,
And so wait,
You just have to be patient,
With me.

You have to be patient with me,
Things are gonna change…
Track Name: Tinderbox
Where would I be,
If I didn't see,
What I wasn't?

Where would I go,
If I didn't know,
This was a habit?

Fallen leaves are in the atmosphere,
And when it rains I can see it clear.

I take my soul where the water collides,
I hope that it comes clean before the turning of the tide,
I know that I might seem a little vacant in my eyes,
But know that underneath I am burning inside,
From what I hide.

You look right at me,
But you cannot see,
What I'm feeling,

I know you'd like to,
But I can't let you,
You'll think I'm crazy.

Heavy thoughts are in the atmosphere,
I hold my breath paralyzed with fear.

I take my soul where the water collides,
I hope that it comes clean before the turning of the tide,
I know that I might seem a little vacant in my eyes,
But know that underneath I am burning inside,
From what I hide.
Track Name: Living Dead
I know that it hurts,
But, I am dumbing myself down with ignorance,
And if it gets worse,
Well, I will kiss it with my lips of common sense,
I know that it burns,
But if you scream a little louder,
Make the flames a little brighter,
I might turn around to see,
You lying on the ground,
So indescript,
Just another human being.

I know that it hurts,
But nothing says I love you like the pain,
So much to gain from hiding,
I don't bother trying to become,
What i know will kill my heart,
And drain my soul,
And so I stay,
Detached and unafraid.

In all my sensitivity,
I cannot find the time to be a lover,
A victim first, a hero if I feel,
That maybe I could take it on,
But my attention's not that strong,
And if you've noticed,
I can barely leave my head,
I have become the living dead.

I know that it hurts,
And it's a shame to see that body go to waste,
And I know you feel worthless,
But that's okay,
We all feel the same.

In all my sensitivity,
I cannot find the time to be a lover,
A victim first, a hero if I feel,
That maybe I could take it on,
But my attention's not that strong,
And if you've noticed,
I can barely leave my head,
I have become the living dead,

I have become the living dead.
Track Name: Moonlight
When I look towards the sea,
The continuum - it breaks down when I force myself to leave,
I'm trailing off the grid now,
Because I've had enough of this,
But I know that if I leave I'll start to miss,
The butchering of time that left me unaware,
Of life out there,

I hear the gravediggers hard at work,
I listen to the soft sound of shovel lifting dirt,
And underneath the moonlight I can really start to see,
A figure standing up and shaking off debris,
And I can't help but think it looks a lot like me…

She reaches out to touch my face,
She whispers we must leave this place,
It's time for you to see,
That what you feared was only me,
And in the moonlight,
We will both be set free.
'Cause this is all a dream.

With a stranger by my side,
I look for all the shadows and the vibrant exit signs,
I feel it on my toes now but my legs are fast asleep,
And then she takes my hand and pulls me in too deep,
And in the silent abyss I can feel my heartbeat.

She reaches out to touch my face,
She whispers we must leave this place,
It's time for you to see,
That what you feared was only me,
And in the moonlight,
We will both be set free.
This is all a dream.
