Track Name: Untitled
Don't overthink,
I know how you're feeling
But my hands are tied

Don't call my name,
The pain's avoidable
If the chase ends here

So please don't talk about it
Please don't waste your time on me
I'm starting to feel the guilt but I'm sorry
I won't assume the responsibility

Don't let it sink
I know it can be tiring
Falling in despair

I won't hold the blame
Everything is breakable
And truth is hard to bear

So please don't talk about it
Please don't waste your time on me
I'm starting to feel the guilt but I'm sorry
I won't assume the responsibility

This I can't control
You're trying to hold on
What we had grew old
Still you're trying to hold on

This I can't control
Your mind needs to move on
At least that's what I've been told
When I was trying to hold on

This I can't control, this I can't control

So please don't talk about it
Please don't waste your time on me
I'm starting to feel the guilt but I'm sorry
I won't assume the responsibility

Please don't talk about it
Please don't waste your time on me
I'm starting to feel the guilt but I'm sorry
I won't assume the responsibility

This I can't control
You're trying to hold on
What we had grew old
Still you're trying to hold on
Track Name: Floater
Your outlines
Move past
And fade in no time
Through my eyes
Everything is so new
But I can’t follow you

Since you're here
Stay for a while
Since you’re near
I'll talk to you soon
But I can’t follow you


Do eye, do eye
Do eye floaters go away
Or do I, do I
Do I need them to stay?


Your reflection
Is so hard to find
Don’t blame me
It’s not that black and white
Why are you so colorblind?


Maybe you’re here
So I can watch you pass
Let alone fear
Alas, to my dismay
You're darting away

My eyes burn
My head turns
but we're still meeting

(You can't touch me)

Weigh your words
We're on bad terms
But I know what you mean

(Can't make you stay)

I know what you mean



Plastic on our heads
But we're still meeting

Weigh your words
We're still on bad terms
But I know what you mean

Do eye, do eye
Do eye floaters go away
Or do I do I
Do I need them to stay?

Your outlines
Move past
And fade in no time
Through my eyes
Everything is so new
But I can’t follow you
Track Name: American Dream
I sent a letter but I never got one back
From my American dream
So untouchable and so right
You're my American dream

I remember when my baby got back
From his hero sacrifice
Still I promise I will never blink twice
You can listen to me anytime

It's for a higher good
A lesser evil
My American dream

I gave you my hand and we held our private love
Then let it go easy
To travel fast and find exotic lands
A tear of pride for all I whored for this greater plan

For the higher good
A lesser evil
My American dream

How many more days
Until I can open my eyes
That I've closed
For our dream to reside?
I only wanted to raise the flag
I only wanted to let them know

How many more lives until I can linger on
The joy that was promised to soon arrive?
I know my patience will have to strive
My willingness will need to show

Raise the flag
Hail the ghost
Let them know

Raise the flag
Hail the ghost
Let them know

I gave my mind up and I never want it back
My American dream
I've learn to hear, agree, steer, oblige
For the people's machine

It’s for a higher good
A lesser evil
My American dream

It's for a higher good
A lesser evil
My American dream
Track Name: 123
It's forgiven,
It's forgotten,
It's all good

And I know you said
I wasn't suppose to lie
But it's no good

It’s always so dark now
I walk out the door
I’m not as sane as I used to be

The floor here betrays me
I stumble and fall
Another stranger's sympathy for me

One, two, three
He’s looking for me
One, two, three
I hear him plea
One, two, three
You said I should be free
One, two, three
That’s not for me

(One, two, three, four)
He’s always around me
(One, two, three, four)
If I’m lost he will find me
(One, two, three, four)
Take over my body
(One, two, three, four)
Give me purpose to be

I know I stand on no ground, no ground
All my fears they've come back now, back now
I lose my grip and I fall down, fall down
All my sins come back around, around

Take over my body
Give me purpose to be

I know I stand on no ground, no ground
Track Name: I Never Leave, I Never Go
The streets are frozen and I don’t belong in this city
No I don’t belong in this city
And I just get older and I’m losing myself in this city,
I’m losing myself in this city

This weight on my shoulders never leaves, never goes
And there's a battle of grief between my mind and my soul

Time never waits for anyone
Always on the run that son of a gun
There is no limit, there is no limit
Time will never wait for anyone

So I’ll keep running, running,
Running 'till I lose my breath
Always running, running
Running’s what I do best

The streets are frozen and I don’t belong in this city
No I don’t belong in this city
And I just get older and I’m losing myself in this city,
I’m losing myself in this city

I remain calm although there are people everywhere
I feel no inner warmth with the cold in the air

Time never waits for anyone
Always on the run that son of a gun
There is no limit, there is no limit
Time will never wait for anyone

Still the chase is never ending
Only final when I lose my breath
Always running, running
Running’s what I do best

The streets are frozen and I don’t belong in this city
No I don’t belong in this city
And I just get older and I’m losing myself in this city,
I’m losing myself in this city

I see the hours pass by slowly
He said he never meant to feel this lonely
It’s as if he wants me back
My worn out face makes it hard to sympathize
My fading youth makes him think twice
Is this really what he wants from me?
Is this really what he wants from me?
Is this really what he wants from me?
Track Name: YOU
Breathe in
Find your nirvana
Within yourself

You know it's not fair
I’m breathing on thin air
She’ll always be there
You know it's not fair

You know the truth isn't al...
(they're haunting me forever, haunting me forever)
...always true
You tell me secrets that I've known
(they're haunting me forever because of what)
For much longer than you
(they're haunting me forever because of what you made me do)
You made me feel so insecure, and I blame it all on you

Always searching for what hurts me most
Always looking for what makes me cry

It’s lovely how you're what's keeping me alive
Wrapped up in your love, in your care and in your lies
My hands they are shaking, I know that I'm breaking
but I'm alive, you're what's keeping me from dying

You see the problem is that I was not that true to you
And she corrupted my already twisted mind
And so I focus all the anger in my hands and I fuck her up, it's necessary
(they're haunting me forever because of what you made me do)
I know it was necessary
(I did this to save us so it's all on you, I blame it on you)

Always searching for what hurts me most
Always looking for what makes me cry

Breaking roots and branches from this tree

(Breathe in, Find
Within your)

She’ll always be there
You know it's not fair
Track Name: Waiting game
Waiting Game
I'm still sane
How long can I

Waiting game
Still the same
How long can I

Waiting Game

Mother won't let me out, let me out
Father, he's full of doubt, full of doubt
They chained me as a little child
I was creature, belonging to the wild
Now they won't let me out, let me out

Waiting Game
I'm still sane
How long can I

Waiting game
Still the same
How long can I

Waiting Game
I'm not to blame
They only let me play the waiting game

My lover, he won't rescue me, he can't see clearly
That I gave him all my love with all my body
And I wished I told him before
That I am one of wanting more
I'm not a one night stand whore

Waiting Game
I'm still sane
How long can I

Waiting game
Still the same
How long can I

Waiting Game
I'm not to blame
They only let me play the waiting game

And they told me I should be patient,
And they told me time is a gift
And they told time is my savior
See, I'm not the waiting kind
Track Name: Homebound 456
The in between moment of your cold, cold stare
I look for new words and I try to prepare
One more battle to be fought
I put my armor on

But deep down I know you know its play pretend
It’s the voices in my head telling me there's no reason to look ahead
One more soldier down
I crawl on the ground

Don’t reason with your fear

If you want respect, then you should look away
You can lay it my bed while I comb my hair and I watch you fade
You never tried to grow
Never saw you so low

Don’t reason with your fear

If I choose to go
Remind me of all the times I chose to fall down

I never mean to disappoint
I understand if you want to be homebound
Track Name: Sheets
Your fingers slither through my skin,
I'm in
Watch my back, when I let my wild side win

We moved quickly but I was never ever scared
We moved quickly but I was never ever
And when we slow down its cause we're forever
We’ll slow down but we're here forever

My eyes close while I let my youth live on
I yearn to thrive, to let you make me more of a woman

You said it's really true, you said you really want me here forever
Your eyes show what you mean
Promise you'll remember that when times get rough
There’s more to what we do, and there's so much to look for together,
There’s so much to be seen
Promise you'll remember that when times get rough

Your fingers slither through my skin,
I'm in
Watch my back, when I let my wild side win
