Track Name: Meantime
Still you lay
after this long hard day
hoping that the ground you feel
the cold concrete not really real
before the sun
you will have your fun
another chance to disappear
to a place so far away from here

I need you and you need me for the meantime

Your look betrays
your words in disarray
coming from an unknown source that leaves no bearing on you of course
your simple lies, your big brown eyes
a face that looks no longer real, inside a picture so surreal

I need you and you need me for the meantime
so you can you live in your fantasy well you will see its all an illusion

day is done, you have had your fun
the illusionary medicine holding up your foolish grin
with you I lie beneath the open sky
searching for ways to somehow keep you from this place

I need you, you need me for the meantime
(background) who is buying who is trying to discover in another
who is crying who is dying now
Track Name: Too Much
I guess for now I have to follow I have to follow closely
along your aching hearts side
I’m standing steady perched upon your shoulder
swallowing all my pride

The innocence thats lost forever quickly to the illusionary fate
encouraging a world thats so much colder the temperature you can’t debate

but if the answer is, what could I tell you? But if the question is, how could I show?
I guess I know too much, I guess I know too much, too much

Now in the darkness of erased self loathing
the only secret place to hide
fully encumbered in the face thats showing thats pushing it all aside

the mixed emotion pulls forever downward
into a pit of ones defeat
although you see the light the hole is too big
from which you cannot retreat

but if the answer is, what could I tell you? But if the question is, how could I show?
I guess I know too much, I guess I know too much, too much

Now with the work begun I’ve come to know that, someday this process will cease
and from the ruins the burden is lifted to signify my release

but until then I walk on eggshells lightly, while knowing that the day will come
when all my light will finally shine so brightly and all of the world can have some

but if the answer is, what could I tell you? But if the question is, how could I show?
I guess I know too much, I guess I know too much, I guess I know too much, I guess I know too much, I guess I know too much, I guess I know too much, too much.

It’s too much
Track Name: Little
What is in the world that makes you try a little?
What is in the world that makes you cry a little?
Its a picture that you realize you’ve seen in all your books
its a picture recognized but it is not the one you took

If it makes you laugh why do you sigh a little?
each time you see it again you die a little?
Its a picture that you hide away inside that book you own
Its a picture cast so far away across the seeds you’ve sown

So make it last for when you try a little?
A time will come when you can buy a little?
A bigger place to house this emptiness inside of all you own
Without a trace of a reason why you should even call this place your home.
Hmm

What are you to care if you fly to high a little?
As long as you can live the lie a little?
While the picture grows and truth is told there’s one thing left to learn
When you fly so high across the sky you’re asking to get burned

So when you laugh make sure you cry a little
For in the end it’ll make you die a little
For so many years in this frame appeared a scene of total bliss
But as the world turns each day you learn it becomes your own abyss

Cause its a picture that you realize you’ve seen in all your books
Its a picture recognized but it is not the one you took
Hmm
Track Name: Never
I guess a little of your prowess is showing
This time I feel alone for real
Your innocence untied from which your plot is growing
Oh well you see the plan doesn’t involve me but...

Though the persistence of your suitor has grown, you’ll never see me crying on the phone. Never, never, never, never.
As I watch the process of a crumbling stone, I’m pretty sure that you’ll end up all alone. Forever, forever, forever, forever.

Through your indifference rings the secret of your decoy
You’re quick to flee from the beast that lies in me
While you’re out running with your precious little new toy
You’ve changed your tune to that of a buffoon well…

Unlike the distance of a traveling star, I’m pretty sure that you’ll never get that far. Never, never, never, never.
As I watch the process of a crumbling stone, I’m pretty sure that you’ll end up all alone. Forever, forever, forever, forever.

Your head is ringing from the message you are holding
You’re much to slow to carry out the blow
The pressure rises ‘till the temperature is scalding
The water steams, you’re bursting at the seams.

Though I know you’re probably leaving today, you’ll never find me asking you to stay. Never, never, never, never.
and though I've caught you behind enemy lines, I know I'll want you until the day I die . Forever, forever, forever, forever.
Track Name: Become
Feasting aside the hope and pride you flaunted
Buried away from what you say you wanted
Digging for the thing you know its somewhere
Existing inside that you’re trying to find unwillingly

Sleeping away the night and day believing
that some other thing had tied the string restricting
dreaming while it quickly pulls you forward
to a whole other place where not a single face you’re believing

But I will track you down
Because I know you still can see just what I’ll become

Fortune leading what you’re seeing solely
To where you’re grandly so left standing coldly
there you’re left to count the invitations
though you hope and pray you’ll never have to stay unwillingly

But I will track you down
Because I know you still can see just what I’ll become

Staring in a crowded room of choices failing to
See the face that leaves the trace of someone I once knew

Furnishing thoughts the answers you brought to existence
That seems so inferior when they meet exterior resistance
Floating through all intimidation
to a whole other side of your stupid pride you’re revealing

But I will track you down because I know you’re still around
I will track you down because I know you still can see just what I’ll become
Track Name: Change Their Minds
While your face is long I’m leaving, far away as planned
The ideas constantly streaming, I’m your biggest fan
But now I see it from both signs, the lines are everywhere
They just fail to recognize, while they stop and stare

Will they ever know the feeling, functions intertwined
Can you know what they are seeing, can you change their minds

Motion caught up in the turnpike, just a little off course
Makings patterns seem so moving, from your dissonance source
How confusing it may feel, to people unaware
But with something thats so real, they just don’t seem to care

Will they ever know the feeling, functions intertwined
Can you know what they are seeing, can you change their minds

With attention they are giving to this noble plan
Things to supplement your living hold out in their hands
Then you’ll see it from both sides, the lines are everywhere
You just to failed to recognize, the truth you couldn’t bear

Will they ever know the feeling, functions intertwined
And if you know what they are seeing, can they change your mind, can they change your mind, can they change your mind
Track Name: Things Never Work That Way
Here’s to you my love, dear
Though your eyes I’m told could never fail
I’ve come to you my love to hear
If what you’ve seen could be real. You say…

It’s not right you see in this company, oh!
But to tell the truth, you have to maintain a shred of dignity.
For in the end you’ll see they will could change, things never work that way.

Here’s to you my love, dear
Though your heart could read through all their lies
I’ve come to you my love to hear,
just how the truth could coincide. You say…

It’s not right you see in this company, oh!
But to tell the truth, you have to maintain a shred of dignity.
For in the end you’ll see they could never change, things never work that way.

You say, no way. Can’t live that way.
Untied, regrown, can’t be overthrown.
To live this way, these words you betray.

Here’s to you my love, dear
though that drink you could never swallow.
I’ve come to you my love to make clear, that where they go I must follow. You say…

It’s not right you see in this company, oh!
But to tell the truth, you have to maintain a shred of dignity.
For in the end you’ll see they will never change, thats why you could never stay.
Things never work that way.
Track Name: Control
The air is thick, I’m feeling sick. Do you want to drive?
The water breaks, I continue to shake, is he still alive?

The rain is here, you’ve nothing to fear, you have me to hold.
Its the life you choose you’ve nothing to lose, but your self control.

The horrid sight, I’ve seen tonight I think I’m gonna bend.
The bloody sheath tightly clenched teeth, this wound will never mend.

The rain is here, you’ve nothing to fear, you have me to hold.
Its the life you choose you’ve nothing to lose, but your self control.

I guess its all part of the game. But is it worth the price of fame?
Cause no two are really the same, but to be caught would be a shame.

They’re closing in on this horrible sin where are we gonna hide.
And with the sun comes everyone the rules no longer apply.

The rain is here you’ve nothing to fear, you have me to hold.
It’s the life you choose you’ve nothing to lose but your self control.
The rain is here you’ve nothing to fear, you have me to hold.
It’s the life you chose and thats the way it goes with your self control.
Track Name: Man
Your heightened elevation is shrinking down
What once was tall, no longer it grew
The constant suffocation killing the thing, that once burned bright inside of you

Stuck to going through the motions sadly, it’s just something that my bad luck did

Your inner revolution, is being lost the soldiers, your general slain
The constant infiltration the hero falls, no longer could he bear the pain

Not destroyed by the motion lacking, just defeated before we could begin

Another leaded I wonder how?
What once was now is could have been.

Don’t destroy the plot that you planned, don’t you know that is the essence of a man.

Your concrete resolution is crumbling down, the thin grey lines foretell its demise
unnoticed and un-nurtured the structure fails
to me that comes as no surprise

I couldn’t see though the walls were cracking, the flaws invisible to the eye

Though all your friends and neighbors see the truth, no sympathy comes from them or I

Don’t destroy the plot that you planned, don’t you know that is the essence of a man.

Do you want it, come and get it
For when its gone, you’ll regret it

Your rapid evolution is slowing down, its grand design is fading from view
Caught in the commotion’s shiny web, that now you see has got you too

I couldn’t move though my wings were flapping
The sticky substance kept me paralyzed

Though all your friends and neighbors see the truth, you’re living in your own white lie

Don’t destroy the plot that you planned, don’t you know that is the essence of a man.
Track Name: Reliving
I couldn’t sleep inside your troubled mind no longer
for you may be the wiser of the two much stronger
In between your troubled eyes I see your face of longing
One to hard to know its self any place belonging
But as your face will show its quiet control misleading
I wonder what could change the patterns you’re just reliving

The awe inspired of shock one’s raw fate receiving
To dwell beneath the surface burrowing its head so deeply
I know that it will take some time to come to its fruition
one must learn the proper time to use the ammunition
and as your pages turn each word I read forgiving
But through the lines I see the patterns your just reliving

But I couldn’t sleep inside the frame thats left remaining
One with two broken nails no picture left containing
soon enough you’ll be consumed by all this repetition
A lonely to way to live the days long beyond your wishing
And when the feeling goes its residue still lingering
I hope you somehow change those patterns you’re just reliving

The greatest ship will not pass me, the greatest self will never roam free.
