Track Name: Ghost Of Me
rest my cold face on your shoulder
i miss the dancing in the rain with you

place my hand into your shadow
shapes of warmth in an endless dream
where i can't touch you

and you find it harder to sleep these days
every time you dream...you can't escape the ghost of me

and in between the night and the day
i will lay down right here with you by your side
if i'm in your mind then you're not rid of me

we used to bathe these rooms with laughter
walls of silence begin shivering with echoes of you

we used to play these games for hours
and even when you're smiling i know how it feels on the inside when i'm holding you

and you don't even know that i'm still the warmth in your bed treasuring all these memories that dance in my head
if only i could i know that i would
wake up to where we began
miss your touch and your taste and the warmth of your skin
my tergiversation bleeding for resurrection
and longing for you
and longing for you

and every single time that you're sleeping
i'll be there watching you dreaming
holding the candle that turns for these moments that burn until the day that you're rid of me
Track Name: I Rise
we were young then
chasing what they taught us to

golden skies then
fading into manic blue

if you're not feeling high enough
you don't even have to like it
its just something that gets us there
its just something that gets us there

drink of the water we'll bathe under water
drink of the fountain we'll drown under water

the dreaming place where we belong
that echoes in the halls of love
it separates then breaks away
at times your face can fade to grey

if you're not feeling high enough
you don't even have to like it at all
its just something that gets us there
its just something that gets us there

drink of the water we'll bathe under water
drink of the fountain we'll drown under water

the dreaming place where we belong
that echoes in the halls of love
it separates then breaks away
at times your face

this is the place where we will rise
rising to meet our paths of life

this is the place where roads will rise
caressing our feet in the sands of time

this is the place where we will rise
rising to meet our paths of light

i wake
i rise
from gold
to blue
back to you

i rise
i rise
i rise
Track Name: Luis
little one lost your mind
what has begun, what will we find
and meet me in the back of your head
then write letters you'll promise to send when I'm dead
haven't seen me lately
something moved far away
maybe when this is over I'll come out and play
stay awake one more hour
until the moon falls asleep
and stay with me over the rainbow
before you wander back home
help me find my way back to the bedroom
‘cause if I don't, soon I'll lose my mind
‘cause these are days that are harder now
lingering silent promises
haven't seen through my eyes since i disappeared
tell me I'm crazy
or tell me we both got carried away
i still love you
Track Name: My Sanity (Acoustic)
so let me have my sanity
because i'm not the same
since i lost my mind
and from this moment on
we will talk in turns
we will walk in lines
we will bide our time
making ourselves well
just across the sky
underneath the waves
in between the hours
of our darkest days
we will greet the space
in arms of loving grace
can i get through to you?
in my silent way
before you lose your mind
before you become me
before we become one
before we lose the sun
in the silent calm
Track Name: Keeping Ourselves Together
i wish i had wings so i could get higher and fly past this paranoia but i can't get my feet on the ground to get my head out of the cloud

i feel like a child in a sky scraper building where everyone sports a coat and a tie
i don't belong here i don't belong

in a world full of people who are telling themselves
that everything turns out alright
they're lying awake at night depending on hope

we love to make promises we know we can't keep
but its still nice to see ourselves trying
to keep us from falling to keep us alive

and you said you'd walk a million miles for me
smile a million smiles for me to keep me from dying

and i said that i would be there when you're falling
but you're scraping your knees on the pavement
and its leaving you bruised

is this love good enough for you
cause i'm barely breathing
and i can't feel alone
is this love good enough for you
cause i'm barely breathing
and i can't feel alone

so long i've been missing you so long
but happiness
is one phone call away
Track Name: Dear Claudia (Acoustic)
dear claudia,
you should try not to sleep with your best friends boyfriend
you've come so far
since that time when you let your first boy in
and you do it so carelessly, as if you had no self esteem
a victim of apathy but you don't care what people say about you
i will let you in before you break yourself
it’s true that you like to sleep around
enjoy it with your backside on the ground
but you should know that its not your fault
your father killed himself
dear claudia,
you leave pieces of you in each bed you lay in
and when you're done there will be somebody else
wearing your skin
i will lay your fears right here next to mine
and when we close our eyes we'll be entwined
little claudia
you must find another
you must forgive yourself
cause its not your fault I killed myself
little claudia
i will forgive you
Track Name: Thursday Night
here, have a seat, wash your hands, rest your feet,
it might be some time before we meet again
remember me and all that i've said and all that i've done
cause all that you have is still irrelevant when relevant to this world
one of you here seems a bit distracted, whispers in the background,
walks behind the roses, betrays me with a kiss
drink, take, and then calm yourself, nothing can be done
to change this course of action
when the dog bites then the bee stings…a conundrum to separate
talking circles, walking circles…there is no way to separate
and here they come across the fields to take me
to my precious pilate directing me to destiny
but in three days i will walk behind the sun
just beyond sleep i will wake in more ways than
one more prayer before i go
one last kiss to ease your mind
when the dog bites and the bee stings…a conundrum to separate
talk in circles, walk in circles…there is no way to separate
when in winter lies the secret…a conundrum to separate
and then summer holds the answers…there is no way to separate
Track Name: Controlled
smiling face
misdirected finger pointing
cheshire mask
selective listening
and selling you subliminal dreams

falling down the rabbit's hole
chasing checkered pocket watch
choking this dream
until the clock runs out of time


you take what they give you
force fed as you swallow down
you tell me that we cannot make a difference
needs only one spark
what it takes to make the turn around
if you want to change the world

you tell yourself
this s a dream
where you are in control

this faded thing

please realize now
you are controlled
controlled
controlled
controlled

painting the roses red
painting the roses red
remembering to stay in the lines
why must we paint them red?

telling me what say
telling me what to feel
which color should i wear
which color should i be

teaching me your perception of the where i ought to see
which color should i fear
which color should i be

crazy
opening doors into this crazy
living the lives that make us crazy
holding the stokers to the crazy
cracking the windows that seep crazy
over the rainbow we are crazy
follow the leaders that are crazy
listen to voices that are crazy
believing the lies in all this crazy
painting the roses we are crazy
believing the lies that make us crazy
over the rainbow we are crazy
believing that lies that make us crazy
over the rainbow we are are crazy
like the mad hatter we are...

you take what they give you
force fed as you swallow down
you tell me that we cannot make a difference
needs only one spark
what it takes to make the turn around
if you want to change the world
Track Name: From The Window
you were there too
and then i thought i saw the tin man
or was it just a dream
about a little girl
lost inside her skirt

knitting nails to breathe
but know that you're the only one

get over it. it looks as though you might be bleeding.

maybe she'll write
maybe she'll call
maybe i'm stuck all alone in the dark on this one
i know she's in that angels dress
maybe she'll write
maybe she'll call
maybe i'm stuck all alone in the dark on this one
i know she's in that angels dress

and i'll be here i waste my time for eternity
here i stand here i waste my time for eternity
cause nothing you can say will make this
or change this way i feel eternally

and i will
try and figure out this one
yes i will

theres a burning in this
theres a burning in this
a constant burning in this
and i can't help but feel you


cowardly lion is taking a bath
to wash the fears inside of him
scarecrow's been missing for more than three days
where is the cross where he laid

get over it. it looks as though you might be bleeding.

maybe she'll write
maybe she'll call
maybe i'm stuck all alone in the dark on this one
i know she's in that angels dress
maybe she'll write
maybe she'll call
maybe i'm stuck all alone in the dark on this one
i know she's in that angels dress

and i'll be here i waste my time for eternity
here i stand here i waste my time for eternity
cause nothing you can say will make this
or change this way i feel eternally

i will
try and figure out this one
yes i will

maybe she'll write
maybe she'll call
maybe i'm stuck all alone in the dark on this one
i know she's in that angels dress
maybe she'll write
maybe she'll call
maybe i'm stuck all alone in the dark on this one
i know she's in that angels dress
Track Name: Exist
wish i was watching the big screen
wouldn't have to think about anything at all
i could stare at the pictures
and watch the world go by
forget myself and never stop to ask why.
Track Name: Brick Layers
living in houses, buying the bricks that build these walls
raising the layers, brick upon brick to make you whole
take a look. you'll see this place is desolate
everybody is hiding in their perfect little houses
building from the inside with no way out
and i don't want to scare you
but i think that you might like to know
that every brick you lay is just another day you spend alone
and i don't want to scare you
and i promise you that i will be brave
and let them hear what you have to say
hiding in the cracked foundations praying no one can see
fortress ourselves in the great delusion in our animosity
follow this assembly line until your face is undefined
until your name is meaningless until you cannot recognize
why you began to build this place why you started from the inside out
why you didn't build a door for god?
why you didn't build a door?
Track Name: Invisible People
she goes driving round for hours
with no real destination
just to find her mind

always on the verge of breaking
on verge of waking
she laughs when she should cry

and she can see invisible people
but it could god
telling her she's not alone

she holds extra ordinary secrets
extra ordinary passions
in her extra ordinary soul


but its a long road out of here
and every step seems much more difficult
and if she should fall
she will be lifted up like children unto god

and she can dream in different colors
besides the shades of grey
she sees when she's awake

longing for the chance to sparkle
she shimmers when she shines
glowing all the time

and every step she takes forward
searching for the rhythm
by dancing through this life

graceful even when she's stumbling
on the edge of sane
she will find her way

and she can invisible people but it could be god
Track Name: Dear Claudia (Demo)
dear claudia,
you should try not to sleep with your best friends boyfriend
you've come so far

Track Name: Looks Impossible
when will i hold the hand?
the hand inside of you

so our palms come together
and pray that we will shine

one more day, to separate the difference
one more sidewalk, to find out where it ends

and she says, "it looks impossible."
but its not easy when she's all over my head

i want to see the sunlight from this lonely painted room
i want to turn beside me while i sleep and know i'm not alone
i want to sit at the top
i want to see their faces when it all comes crashing down
i want to fall off the high rise to prove that this will never die

and she says, "it looks impossible."
Track Name: Seven
i'm suddenly aware we might be worlds apart
figment my imagination, i feel you there
a flickering of a warmth that brings me home
a part of me that's so far away, a distant essence of myself
reminds me of familiarity, like someone i used to know
why do you feel so far away?
perhaps its all in my head, possibly me that's insane
into these waves, these silent steps i take to you
into this light, into my waves, come and crash into my soul
compensate for my hole, every step that i take brings me closer to you

you haunt my dreams, i miss you so much when i am awake
you're touching me, at times it causes me to tremble
please give to me, please open up my mind
a part of me, inside of you…fell so far away
Track Name: Picture This Perfect World
its been 8 days i wasted
7 for the girl
10 for every time i tried to tell myself i'm wrong

its been 8 days i wasted
7 for my love
9 for every time i tried to tell myself i won't give up

pour down some rain on me
just let it bleed

pour down some rain on me
just let it bleed

picture this perfect world.

every time i turn the t.v. on
hold onto me
videos of what we used to be
hold onto me
every time i turn the music on
hold onto me
memories of what we used be

picture this perfect world.

pour down some rain on me.

just let it bleed.
Track Name: Stamina
equivocated
arms that are worn sour
can't hesitate this time of where i'm taking home

would you forget this if i was lying
i'm not about to waste all my precious time

she will fly
she will fly
she will

heaven will fly
with pictures of the wounds i'm taking home
devils in mine
with bloody hands of the youth i've never known

would you forget this if i was lying
i'm not about to waste all my precious time

equivocated
arms that are worn sour
can't hesitate this time of where i'm taking home

she will fly
she will fly
she will

heaven will fly
with pictures of the wounds i'm taking home
devils in mine
with bloody hands of the youth i've never known

you left me here
the heart was not enough to show me
i'm stuck in here
the stamina it builds for nothing

you fucking lied. you fucking lied.
Track Name: My Sanity (Demo)
so let me have my sanity
because i'm not the same
since i lost my mind
and from this moment on
we will talk in turns
we will walk in lines
we will bide our time
making ourselves well
just across the sky
underneath the waves
in between the hours
of our darkest days
we will greet the space
in arms of loving grace
can i get through to you?
in my silent way
before you lose your mind
before you become me
before we become one
before we lose the sun
in the silent calm
