Track Name: Anti
I feel ugly
I feel deceived
I thought love was the key to everything
but love is not enough for me
I need to feel motion
deep turning tides
I seem to crave a wave of emotion
crashing over my life

cuz I
want to reach deep
search seek
live with every ounce of me

I feel my life
slipping by day to day
and I want to fill each and every moment
before it wastes away
I don't want to keep running
but I just can't stand still
I need to move with the smooth
and rough edges
of exploration at will

cuz I
want to reach deep
search seek
live with every ounce of me

so give me temptation
give me trials
give me pain fear hurdles to clear
and something to occupy desire
I don't think it's destruction
but it ain't poetry
it's just a way of living without dying
or dying a good life anyway
dying a good life anyway
dying a good life

cuz I
want to reach deep
search seek
look touch
feel ****
live with every ounce
Track Name: Spit
take a little bit
take a little bit take a little bit more
take a little bit
take a little bit take a little bit more
take a little bit
take a little bit take a little bit more
take a little bit
take a little bit

til there's nothing left to take
and nothing left to give
nothing left to break
and nothing left to live
nothing left to say
nothing left to do
nothing left but pain
and the one I see through now

wrap your mind around the memory
fact and fiction intertwine
truth tastes like bitterness
so you spit as you lie

and tell me
just what you think you know
tell me
was it fun to watch me slowly
crucified

take a little bit
take a little bit take a little bit more
take a little bit
take a little bit take a little bit more
take a little bit
take a little bit take a little bit more
take a little bit
take a little bit

til there's nothing left to take
and nothing left to give
nothing left to break
and nothing left to live
nothing left to say
nothing left to do
nothing left but pain
and the one I see through now

well baby don't you know
the good ones never die
watch me
rise
rise
rise
Track Name: Madness
step outside your mind ease into freedom
slide behind your eyes let your sight go blind
trip the lines of time borrowed inside
free from your body let your spirit glide

into nothing
into everything
that we are

i've been searching high and low for peace
but inside and outside blur into empty
so let go relax it's not as bad as it seems
madness is not madness if we all agree

it's nothing
it's everything
that we are

journey through chaos spits deceit
wags a finger whispers hypocrisy
step outside your mind and pretend to be free
but you cannot erase
you cannot erase
you cannot erase
what you've seen

it's nothing
it's everything
that we are
Track Name: Lies
I heard the news today
I feel myself slipping
further away
I fear I'm drifting
I do not want
I can not see
I won't believe
there's nothing more here
there's nothing more here

why do we lie?

what weakness we possess
is growing stronger
a pretense of ignorance
and we're burdened no longer
do not feel
do not speak
do not think about these things
do not feel
give into numb
and there's nothing more here

why do we lie?
Track Name: Beggar, Queen & Thief
beggar, queen & thief
you take when you give
so you give just what you need
I can't believe I let you
have so much of me
I can't believe that you could
walk away so casually

but I'm okay
I'm okay

beggar, thief & queen
you give when you love
but you love 'til it bleeds
I can't believe I let you
reign over me
I can't believe how quickly
you could leave

but I'm okay
I'm okay

queen, thief & beggar
I gave away my heart
kept no part to treasure
I can't believe I could
feel no love for me
I can't believe I could
need so desperately

but I'm okay
I'm okay
I'm okay
Track Name: Running Out of Time
I’ve been wishing on the wind
For something to begin
Is it love is it lust is it pride
And then there is you
I don’t know what to do
Should I love should I trust should I hide?

Questions like cancer
Give me an answer
Be it god be it truth be it lies
There’s something inside me
That’s trying to guide me
Is it god is it youth is it wise?

Oh freedom despise me
Why do you leave me alone
Freedom untie me
Teach me or let me go

I’ve been wishing on the wind
So here I go again
Am I stupid or bored or tired
I’ve been here before
But still I want more
Am I stupid a whore or just wired

Oh freedom despise me
Why do you leave me alone
Freedom untie me
Teach me or let me go

Running
Out
Of
Time

Oh freedom despise me
Why do you leave me alone
Freedom untie me
Teach me or let me go
Track Name: Jonas
Jonas was a preacher man
Who walked his life out on the land
Searching for a truth called love
Journey forth all else above

Jonas met a devil down
‘round that bend called heaven-bound
that devil said son don’t you know
this road you’re on is just a joke

it keeps the poor from getting mean
by feeding them on false gods and dreams
come with me and I’ll show you love
in pleasures rich to fill you up

Jonas said what you doing here
With your ruby eyes and golden sneer
Cuz I been down 10,000 miles
And I can see through all your lies

Love is not an end reward
It’s not a paradise I’m heading towards
Love is what’s inside of me
Love is the search and the search is free

So devil you best be on your way
I got walking still to do today
My feet have brought me down this road
And my soul will lead me home
My soul will lead me home
Track Name: Close to Me
Half naked
Half wild
I got a feeling that’s building can’t keep it inside
I wander close to me
Half struggling
Half free
Got a feeling that’s building taking over me
I wander close to me

Oh close to me

Half lost
Or is it found
Am I flying high above or six feet underground
I wonder close to me
Half twisted
Half sane
Am I falling through the glass or just looking at my face
I wonder am I close to me

Oh close to me

Half wasted
Stone sober and cold
Got a feeling that’s building that’s taking control
And I want you close to me
Half woman
I’m half little boy
Got a feeling that’s building that can’t be destroyed
And I want you close to me

Oh close to me
Track Name: Walls
love has become numb
a silent hum roars through my days
friendship come undone
why can’t we figure out how to mend our ways
I have been floundering
Trying to shine it on
You have been hiding away
And in your stillness
You’ve already gone

And I
I can’t break these walls
Of fear

I guess I pushed too hard
Leading you to believe
That everything bad could be good
But it’s only ourselves we deceive
And now you feel vulnerable
Exposed like barren land
And I feel wicked with shame
For this reckless
Sleight of hand

And I
I can’t break these walls
Of fear

Is there really no where to go
But down this dead end road
We can see it coming
Why can’t we stop
Before we lose control
I know you love me
And I would love you too
But I fear these feelings
Are the reason I’m losing you

And I
I can’t break these walls
Of fear
Track Name: Night
In the night I have come
To the place I call my home
Through the fields and the snow
I come running home

I have seen in the night
Friends and lovers turn away
And I fear come the day
I’ll be running away

In the night I have stood
In desert cold and mountain wood
And I tried best I could
To believe in something good

But what was known in the night
Turns to dust come sunrise
Rain scattered and burnt by light
All I’ve known slowly dies

So I have come in the night
To the place I call my home
Through the fields and the snow
I come running home
