Track Name: The Running Song
THE RUNNING SONG
when we dream we drive in stolen cars
without control we veer off in the dark
lights flicker, then they go out
in a ditch we roll, passengers turning, their bodies are burning
we feel no pain our eyes are hovering
we took our chances on these country roads

all of our faces change, memories erased from our minds
another barricade, past impressions made, held in time

when the words are taken from our mouths, for the first time we can speak our minds again
we hold no grudges on the other side
the wall was built to well to break through

all of our faces change, memories erased from our minds
another barricade, past impressions made, held in time
and in our choices made, our paths are cleared and paved from behind
along the interstate our fathers flags will wave for all time
Track Name: Folding Up
FOLDING UP
what's the point of being here, when everything just falls apart?
i've seen you suffering
everything is going dark

i know that when the ceiling hits the floor you'll fold
i know, cause i've seen it all before

there's no point in fighting you, when your minds already made
i've seen you circling
everything is going dark

i know that when the ceiling hits the floor you'll fold
i know, cause i've seen it all before

folding up
everything that can go wrong, surly will
ticking by
oh we wasted so much time
Track Name: The Road Home
THE ROAD HOME
Open up your eyes a minute
This plan is well devised, see it?
We're in, we're out, there will be no doubt
That we will make it home

The road home is far but we're not alone, no
The skys' eyes don't know where we're going and neither do I

We're twisting in and out of turns
Waiting to see who gets burned
The flame is tame, but will not play games,
Or choose names

The road home is far but we're not alone, no
The skys' eyes don't know where we're going and neither
Neither do I

Open up your eyes a minute
This plan is well devised, see it?
Open up your eyes a minute
This plan is well devised, see it?
Track Name: Salt in the Wounds
SALT IN WOUNDS
it's to hard to stop when you're not healing
in my mind it's gone but not my feeling
it's been a fucked up year that sent me spinning
when the brakes get cut you must keep moving

far away from here, this doesn't feel like home
for reasons i don't quite know, i cant let go

i can't erase this and it's taking it's toll on me
you make it seem so easy and that's what hurts the most

i can't stop pushing salt in the wounds

i'll put you far away, i just need a bit more time
i'll hold you dear and insincere consider it burnt

is this sinking? do you have ringing ears?
surely you must have regrets
i got one too, it's you

all things aside, are you happy now?
i'll put you aside. do you see what you left sitting on the curb?

i'll put you far away, i just need a bit more time
i'll hold you dear and insincere
let's watch it burn
Track Name: Lost Son
LOST SON
nothing i have ever been shown has made me change my ways
still scraping the bottom, repeating mistakes

when shit goes wrong i self medicate
when times get tough, i just walk away
the lows are empty, i stay anyways
the colors blur, so i squint through the days

nothing in the world seems sacred i feel out of place
words don't change actions. it's to little to late

the ship has sailed, leaving behind the weak
the verdicts past, walk on your hands and knees
if you live like a dog a dog is what you'll be
roll in shit and scratch until you bleed

another chorus sung from our fathers lost son
we won't speak of our sins
we follow past footsteps from conception to the death
where we are born again

we'll die with our secrets, we won't speak of our sins
Track Name: On and On
ON AND ON
days turn into nights
we slept by each others side
you stared into my eyes knowing it was done

the rooster sang in the morning
we woke with our backs eye to eye
the sheets could use a changing but we'll lay on them for a while

and carry on and on another day
Track Name: Stand Alone
STAND ALONE
hey you off jumping fences, i've seen your kind and i know your style
you're worn through, thin like paper
you grit your teeth as you fake a smile
hey you, you with your back turned
swing around and look at me
you get no explanation, tuck your tail it's time to leave

hey you pissing in the wind, telling tall tales to impress your friends
your lies carry no weight, they sink to the bottom of the shallow end
hey you, you with your back turned, swing around and look at me
i won't stab you in the back, i want to see your eyes and watch you bleed

you keep running your mouth, running your friends out

stones were cast. the bed you made, it is waiting and your time has come
cause you used it up, you fucked it up
now you can stand alone
Track Name: Everything Out of Me
EVERYTHING OUT OF ME
someone stop me from falling all the way
kill the spotlight that's shinning down on me
take the mistakes that i'm to old to change
sing a soft song to carry me away

never look the devil straight in the eyes
and never trust a girl with a pretty smile
cause they take everything out of me

someone stop me, i gave it up again
i burnt the lyrics, they couldn't change a thing
i fake the smiles, when i really want to scream
someone stop me, i've fallen all the way

i feel so old and tired 
Track Name: Greener Pastures
GREENER PASTURES
do you feel better then you did before?
did a new door open in front of the last one you slammed behind?
is it true that there's greener pastures?
do the stars that float in the sky shine bright on your side of the county?
do you sleep and fear not a dream?
is there comfort since all the silence?

oh i hope so, i do cause life's to short to be unhappy

another time a different life, things could have worked out right
it's ok i won't fight, i won't ruin another night
behind the pushing and last tries of heavy hearts and heavy eyes
it's ok i won't fight, i will say goodbye

another time, a different life
Track Name: Your Disguise
YOUR DISGUISE

You have got secret eyes that you hide behind
Your veil isn't real, but that's your disguise

You stare, but you don't know where you are
(lost in thoughts surrounding what's in there)
That blank white face I can't trace where you are
(I am losing touch it's proving hard)
These lines I'm drawing are just small things
But small things don't compare to who you are

I have got these ideas of what's taking place
They are thoughts but I'm wise that blank stare it almost fooled me almost fooled me

You still stare but you don't know where you are
(lost in thoughts surrounding what's in there)
That blank white face I can't trace where you are
(I am losing touch it's proving hard)
These lines I'm drawing are just small thing
But small things don't compare to who you are
Small things don't compare to who you are
Small things don't compare
Track Name: Old Sparks
OLD SPARKS
old sparks fly in front of my eyes with a flash that blinds
i can't see you and i can't see why i stay
she has explained, it's like she's running against the wind
but while you're pushing i'm blowing away

you get more distant, i get confused, i leave it up to you
you wanted inches now you have miles
in separate rooms i think of you
going going going gone
this feeling spans for miles

we'll say goodbye, hell it's as easy as a flick of the light
but i cant see you and i can't see why, things change
we both made presumptions but i don't presume
that you are gonna stay

you get more distant, i get confused, i leave it up to you
you wanted inches now you have miles
and i could string myself along, patiently wait by the phone
hoping that your name pops up but i'm to old to be a backup

so i'll wait to see if there's a change
Track Name: Strings
STRINGS
i'll give the benefit to you, take your precious time
but iof you have a change of heart my numbers still the same
if you ever need to talk i'll always have your back
cause i know it's been rough on you and i haven't been much help

and if you want no strings attached i'll have to live with that

and let sleeping dogs lye, even if it's hard to do
cause when the river flows upstream you cannot paddle back
and there's always a price to pay, it's time you can't get back
and i know it's been rough on you cause it's been hell for me

and if you want no strings attached

and you don't get the time back
when you push and you push it will collapse
and it matters none who's wrong or right
cause the house burnt down and the picture were left inside
