Track Name: The Writing On The Wall
The Writing On The Wall

Caught upon a wave that pushes me like a fist
Waiting for the man I thought that I could be
Falling off the wave is me I should have kept you near

And all the blood is pushing through my arteries
I push away the people who love and who I need
All I have around me now is sitting here with me

And I no longer feel you on my back
I don't feel the touch upon my head
I don't feel the wonder of your soul

I don't feel the ground beneath my feet
I don't feel the earth below me move
I have put the writing on the wall

I don't know when something's right for me
There's always someone waiting in these wings
There's always an illusion I can reach

There's always something waiting there for me
There's always something hiding up my tree
I can never help you in all honesty

Yes I don't even know where you belong
It's all just an illusion and you played a game
I am so much colder than you could ever be

You can only take away what I feel
The need I feel in you it did feel real
but I have put the writing on the wall
Track Name: There's No Loving Me
There's No Loving Me

Standing here I wait for my prescription
I don't know if I'll be the same again
Caffiene helps me keep my concentration
It keeps me up cause I don't know if I can
get used to this floor I'm sleeping on
I'm too old to make ends meet again
I don't know if I can face your wrath again
why don't we let this go
This dance of life and death

Can't you stop this pain you're giving me
It's something I don't want to be around
There's no loving me
There is no love in me today

If I fall into the wrong hands baby
If I let my life run out of luck again
Let me go and watch me be a fool again
Don't let me make a fool
Out of what was you and me

Can't you stop this pain you're giving me
It's something I don't want to be around
There's no loving me
There is no love in me today

I don't know which side I'm swimming on
I'm in so deep
I can't feel any good again.
There's no love in me today.

Yes I know just what I'm doing here
Don't think I don't know
what all this sadness brings
There is so much I don't want you to know
Let me find a way to get back home

Can't you stop this pain you're giving me
It's something I don't want to be around
There's no loving me
There is no love in me today
Track Name: Misspronounced
Misspronounced

So your friends they all left you
moving on to something to someone new
moving on and on and on
we have to find a way
to open up a door thats standing there in front of you
and close the one we leave behind for something true
I don't have any time to make any sense of this at all

Filling all the empty space around you
Paper over cracks that fill your head
Constantly in need of what you know you never have
Living there with you
would be a kind of living hell
Living in a town you misspronounce and cannot spell
sitting around a fire that never keeps you home


I never want to be part of the violence
That surrounds your heart these days
Just passing through the town
I saw your face
Constellations swirling through the old genetic pool
Tuning chaos no benefits no benefits from rules
I don't have any time to make any sense of this at all

Filling all the empty space around you
Paper over cracks that fill your head
Constantly in need of what you know you never have
Living there with you
would be a kind of living hell
Living in a town you misspronounce and cannot spell
sitting around a fire that never keeps you home
Track Name: Moving
Moving

every night I'm hypnotized
every night I'm sleepless and
every time I fall asleep
I wake up in your arms without you

frozen out I sleep alone
so alone is pure alone
loneliness is my solitude
as I 'm learning to be without you

Bleeding love from an open wound
I've given all that I've got for you
Angels eyes have cast their spell on me

I'm lying in an open field
My eyes look up but I don't see
a clear blue sky in front me
I just feel this rain upon my face

Bleeding love from an open wound
I've given all that I've got for you
Angels eyes have cast their spell on me

I've been too long inside myself
I don't know what's inside your head
we've been too long now In this state
you don't know what it's like to be here

Or to be moving along without you
Moving along without you
Moving along without you
Track Name: Running
Running

Who are these men that you say, do you the harm
not that mad ones on the pavement or in the news
There's not a lot in childhood ghosts
and sleepless nights
There's something in those bones that keeps you warm

Who are these men that place a distance
between you and fortune
Who are these guys that keep you running from
sharing what you had
and you could never give away
who are these men that loved you for so long?

And guess where I am never going to stay?
Impatient now I need to understand
But I know fear is everything
That keeps your heart together
Now go inside and shelter from your phoney fame

Unattended I was in the bedroom
looking through your stuff and all your dreams
breaking all the rules we set
I don't know what I was fed
I don't know if I can take what I might hear

And guess where I am never going to stay?
Impatient now I need to understand
But I know fear is everything
That keeps your heart together
Now go inside and shelter from your phoney fame

I guess I'm just the nicest guy you'll ever meet
Every girl I know falls down to kiss my feet
I am hopeless like a car made out of rust
just running through the ages into to dust

I see the warning signs a clear
that you were out to get me dear
I'm standing in a silent cinema
I can't sit down, I'm on my feet, no films to see
I'm running and I'm scared
I'm running and I'm scared
I'm running and I'm scared

I'm running and I'm scared
I'm running and I'm scared
I'm running and I'm scared
I'm running and I'm scared
Track Name: Something
Something

You were born into a world
Into a world that just won’t let you in
Broken down and busted down
Feeling like only you could win
Riding on a wave that just won’t let you go
telling me so much no one should ever know
I’ve been reading your life like a book
that won't end.

Broken and arrested
You were falling to pieces
Born into sadness
Just to survive if you can
Yeah you climb as you’re falling
You’re nowhere to be found
How could I show you
how much I really I cared
You carry all the weight
Like a tired, like a tired old man.

Driving so hard
As you turn as you turn me away
Giving all the best you can
with your strapped to your sleeve
yeah your hearts in your mouth
As you’re striving to change
I don’t see how anything
Is ever gonna be going your way
Cause you’re wild eyed and terrified
You’re complex so complex and pure.

We all became something
then then nothing
We all became something
then then nothing
We all became something
then then nothing
We all became something
then then nothing
Then nothing at all
Track Name: This Time
This Time

Cold, cold as a star
We're flying on our own
floating like a river
then drying up to dust
feeling pulled together
feeling pulled apart

I don't know where I find the strength
to keep myself at home, at home.

Fading like the evening sun
Biding all of our time.

I don't know where I find the strength
To give you all I've got, and then some.
Yeah I don't know where I find the strength
To give you all I got, and then some.

But I don't wanna be right about this one
I don't wanna be right this time
Yeah I don't wanna be right about this one
I don't wanna be right this time

For I'm a ship that's sail less
Sailing to christ knows where
Yes I am a fool on this river of life
wrapped in my despair

But I won't be lost forever
I can see the coast for miles
No I won't be lost forever
I can feel when I'm drowned
For reasons I don't care about
This evening wears a frown
You brought this back into your life
And fooled my heart again

But I don't wanna be right about this one
I don't wanna be right this time
No I don't wanna be right about this one
I don't wanna be right this time

This time
Track Name: Courage
Courage

Courage is a compliment to fear
A man who has no fear
He cannot become courageous
A man who has no fear is just a fool

Courage is the first of human qualities
It is the truth that guarantees all others
Courage is resistance
Resistance to fear

Resistance is useless now
Resistance can never be your friend
Resistance is useless now
Resistance can never be your friend

The only reason for this time is one thing
is so that all of this can never happen at once
The only reason for this time is one thing
is so that all of this can never happen at once

all of this can never happen at once
all of this can never happen at once
all of this can never happen at once
all of this can never happen at once

A man is just a fool
A man is just a fool
A man is just a fool
A man is just a fool
A man is just a fool
A man is just a fool
A man is just a fool
A man is just a fool
Track Name: Standing In The Light
Standing In The Light

Keep me together
Feel my heart surround you
For now
All my fears are with you
Somehow
We kept our love together
someday
I'll keep my feet on the ground
For now
All my rights have left me
Move away
You're standing in the light

Feel my destruction
hold my dark side down
sort me out
let my heart surround you
someway
piece me back together
it's getting late
piece me back together
sort me out
show me the view
Move away
You're standing in the light
Track Name: Found
Found

Don't be loud right now
I just need a moment
fool around in the dark
keep your head down there
I don't know if we can carry on this way
I don't know if we can carry on this way

I don't know which side of you
I'll be meeting today
I don't know sometimes which side you're on
I don't mind but I don't want to let you go
I am lost but I have found my way

You fool around this way
Life is just one big mistake
I would never realize
that my life was filled with lies
there is stillness in
a new awakening now
every moment I have
Is just another one to let go

I don't know which side of you
I'll be meeting today
I don't know sometimes which side you're on
I don't mind but I don't want to let you go
I am lost but I have found my way

Look at me now
I've lost all my complexion
beating ourselves to death
for just a point of view
I'm living my life with you
Raise your glass and drink with me
Maybe we lost
Maybe it worked out that way
Track Name: Riding On A Wave
I don't remember
I don't recall
Anything special
Happening at all

All of my life now
Back to the wall
Full back to empty
Then nothing
Once more

mmmmm
I've been riding on a wave
mmmmm
I've been riding on a wave

I don't do nothing
I've tried it all
I sometimes feel good
sometimes I'm blue
I never do all the things
that I'm told
Life is too short now
We dream and grow old

mmmmm
I've been riding on a wave
mmmmm
I've been riding on a wave

I'm used to fucking up
But what else can I do?
I'm used to fucking up
But what else can I do?

I think I'm growing old!!
Track Name: Not Me
I don't know what I will find
I don't know what I will do
Even you don't even know
What we should do
Every moment, every way
Every crowd, every beat
Who will lose and who will win,
And who will go and who will stay?

You just don't know
So keep your head down low
And take a moment If you please.
Keep your head down low
Who will be in your life
And what the hell is it to me?

Now the crime is in your eye
Every crime you wanna see
Only you can really know
What you really need from me.
Nothing ever keeps it real
All this sudden 'get a hold on me'
Never learn to forget
Never learn to forget.

Keep your head down low
Keep your conscience still
And find a way back to the top.
Keep your hands on your face
I don't ever want to
make it last with you

I want to feel my way back
You said you want more
You said I smell fear and I'm scared
I fear everything now but myself
I want to feel it frame by frame
I can live with my mistakes
You can of worms
You spilled yourself all over me

I want to find a way of loving you
She comes with no warning no
She buzzes like a starboard wind
Blowing all her answers on me
She gave me no choice

And I don't follow anyone but me
I can see which way you're coming from
No one should have to be this way in life
No one, no, no..especially not me.
Track Name: Tell Me If I'm Wrong
Evening pale thin sickle moon
Wipe your smile across my sky again
This greatness still lives in your eyes
So dark and mysterious
It keeps me surprised

Melting like the flood in the rain
Bring me back to life here again
Now I know where I belong

Sinking in my anger
My love turned into hate
Hiding in these valleys
I fixed you with disdain
I crawled when I was running
I breathed in all the air
So cold it kept me guessing
It took my breath away.

Melting like the flood in the rain
Bring me back to life here again
Now I know where I belong.

I walked right through this life on the edge
I whispered all my lies and my regrets
The fear was in my heart to lose again,
and again.

Now I know where I belong

Tell me if I'm wrong
Tell me if I'm wrong
Tell me if I'm wrong
Tell me if I'm wrong

Now I know where I belong?
