Track Name: Static
Running through the haze
Trying to find a better place to be
Head is in a daze
Can't make out the reason I'm still searching

Can you help me
Find a little clarity
Maybe then we'll be ok

So tired of this space
Cluttered memories they keep on haunting me
If I make it through this maze
Maybe the next one won't be so hard

Can you help me
Find a little clarity
Maybe then we'll be ok
Track Name: All The Way Down
I've made mistakes
Turning left instead of right
I guess it's true what they say
Sometimes you stumble and fall

Watching
Two feet on the ground
Breath in
And I'll follow you all the way down
All the way down

I've learned a lot
Through a past of broken hearts
And through all of that
I'm still waiting for the call

Watching
Two feet on the ground
Breath in
And I'll follow you all the way down
All the way down

(Noodles: John then Dayton)

Watching
Two feet on the ground
Breath in
And I'll follow you all the way down
All the way down
All the way down
All the way down
Track Name: When You're Gone
When I look around I see the world has changed
The things I counted on now seem so strange
When I was younger time moved so slow
Now I blink my eyes and wonder where it goes

And I try to find the answers in the eyes of my friends
But all this misdirection leaves me empty handed

Later on
(When you're gone away)
When you're gone
(I need you to stay)
It won't be long
(Don't leave me this way)
Later on
(One more day)

Many books were penned by far better men
About the time in life when everything changes
And you see yourself in a different light
And you start to question what you thought was right

And you try to find the answers in the eyes of your friends
But all this misdirection leaves you empty handed

Later on
(When you're gone away)
When you're gone
(I need you to stay)
It won't be long
(Don't leave me this way)
Later on
(One more day)

And you try to find the answers in the eyes of your friends
But all this misdirection leaves you empty handed

Later on
(When you're gone away)
When you're gone
(I need you to stay)
It won't be long
(Don't leave me this way)
Later on
(Need just one more day)
Later on
(When you're gone away)
When you're gone
(I need you to stay)
It won't be long
(Don't leave me this way)
Later on
(One more day)
Track Name: Keep Hanging On
Stare into a photograph
And lose a thousand years
The twists and turns that made the path
The laughter and the tears
Why has it come to this?
Was it something I have done?
Check the lamp for one more wish
A mistake to be undone

When you lose your footing
And your down to a thread
You might think it's easier
To let it go instead
But keep on hanging on
Keep on hanging in
You will find a better way
For the story to end
Keep hanging on
Keep hanging on

Footsteps in the distance
And I know that someone's there
Will it even make a difference
If there's not enough to share
Time is a tricky thing
It's emphasized my man
And it keeps on changing
Whether or not I can

When you lose your footing
And your down to a thread
You might think it's easier
To let it go instead
But keep on hanging on
Keep on hanging in
You will find a better way
For the story to end
Keep hanging on
Keep hanging on

When you lose your footing
And your down to a thread
You might think it's easier
To let it go instead
But keep on hanging on
Keep on hanging in
You will find a better way
For the story to end
Keep hanging on
Keep hanging on
Track Name: The Gift
Wake up from a catatonic state
Eyes are on fire from all that I see
Twisting words to fit inside their meaning
Questions are toxic to magical mystery

Tracking the lines on my fingers
Searching for answers that seem to allude me
Breathing the air that suffocates you
What is the meaning and why can't I find the truth

Minutes to hours to days
Months are like weeks
Years are flying by
Lonely bitterness fills my memories
Is there no happiness without compromise

Tolerance seems to have abandoned me
Ignorant souls ever complacent
Pointing their fingers and accusing
Science be damned in place of religious fear

Searching my soul for a pulse
Reason tells me that I am alive
My feelings are my own and they are with me
If your god is real then so is it's gift free will
Track Name: Pure Misery
If I could find the words to say
All the things I want to say
Another place and time
That I could make the rhythm rhyme
Another space another void
Something less like this noise
That I'm offering today
In my stupid kind of way

I ca n't se em t o pu t t he m ba ck to ge th er t o m ak e mu ch s en se t o y ou I' m a m e ss i 'm a fo ol

Sometimes I'm pure misery
All apathy no energy
When the world just comes apart
I just want to be in your arms

Sometimes I'm pure misery
All apathy no energy
When the world just comes apart
I just want to be in your arms
When the world just comes apart
I just want to be in your arms
In your arms
In your arms
In your arms
Track Name: The Mistake
I'm such a shit
I treat you bad
You are the best friend
I ever had
I'm such an asshole
Though you never complain
I kept you waiting
And drove you insane

There's nothing I can do
To bring you back
Everything you need
Is something I lack
It's going to drive me crazy
There's nothing I can do
Nothing I can do
To bring you back

You were so perfect
Everything I want
If I had a problem
You were in the front of the line
To try and help me
You were there
But if you needed me
I didn't care

Now if I need you
You won't answer the phone
If I come a knocking
You won't be at home

There's nothing I can do
To bring you back
Everything you need
Is something I lack
It's going to drive me crazy
There's nothing I can do
Nothing I can do
Nothing I can do
Nothing I can do
To bring you back

Track Name: Ok
Hello there I can't complain but I'd like to try any way
WHY MUST THINGS ALWAYS BE THIS WAY FOR ME?
I try to find my way with matches in the dark
BUT THE LIGHT SWITCH SEEMS TO FAR AWAY TO SEE!!!

Envision a rising sun
Beautiful new day begun
A picture perfect dream to me
Picture of reality
Not everything I thought it'd be
But I guess that's OK with me

I said I tried but I guess I didn't know
SOMETIMES THINGS AREN'T MEANT TO BE!!!
Oh well anyway, I guess I'll be OK
AND IF NOT I GUESS I'LL JUST COMPLAIN

Envision a rising sun
Beautiful new day begun
A picture perfect dream to me
Picture of reality
Not everything I thought it'd be
But I guess that's OK with me

Envision a rising sun
Beautiful new day begun
A picture perfect dream to me
Picture of reality
Not everything I thought it'd be
But I guess that's OK with me
Track Name: Picture Perfect
I heard you say that I have let you down
Painted your background the color grey
Maybe you don't want me here
An unsightly smear just ruins your day

It hurts me to see you draw the line
Between you and I with permanent ink
Now I see where you have put me
Covered by the trees in the forest afar

We used to be together in perfect harmony
How can it be we've shattered leaving cuts on you and me

You cut me out like I'm your Van Gogh ear
You want me to disappear from your gallery
But I am trapped inside this framed prison
Forced to watch as you move on to another shade

We used to be together in perfect harmony
How can it be we've shattered leaving cuts on you and me
This bloody canvas where our picture perfect love used to me
An empty space with barely any air left to breathe

(Plastic Love Medley)

You are the girl of my dreams
To me you're everything
The girl of my dreams
To me you're everything

The trees are in the sky and the sky is on the ground
This is what it's like to be upside down
Birds don't fly They stand on the sky
It all seems funny and I don't know why
