Track Name: This
This

these flies
sitting on the wall
my pride
chooses me alone
don't cry
your bruises break my fall
dark sky
pours rain in little stones

confide
speak into my mind
outside
birds fly from my soul
please abide
I promise to unwind
don't hide
I'm climbing in this lull

I'm alone
and that's okay
this is me
looking for my way
my fire
grows in siren's hiss
breathe free
this guide hides in this
Track Name: Meant
Meant

If I meant to go
it wasn't far
you did not know

the name inside my shame
it opens empty doors
and breaks my hungry fall

I sit on lost walls
breaking by year
one lost so dear

If I meant to go
it was by fear
and you can show

the truth that breaks me down
it closes doors
silent my call

I fall off broken walls
holding me near
if you can grow

inside my eyes
these broken bones
hold me as I stand alone

if you meant t to go
it wasn't far
and I did not know
Track Name: Dare
Dare

I am everything
and you are nothing
and she is nowhere
they go inside

sheep lie in a dream
jumping fences clean
over spirits lie
this place breathes the sky

only fools die alone
this trip swallows me
I see in your eye
a darkened universe unknown

a rainbow in the sky
these trees bend alone
leaves fall and turn
no hope for lessons learned

I am everything
and you are opening
and she is nowhere
and they don't dare
Track Name: Wild
wild
Track Name: the Best
The Best

look at me crawling
on the floor
I'm so flat
no can ignore
look at me drowning
in this mess
you see me coming
I am undressed
I am falling
in this void
you can't destroy me
I'm paranoid
no one is thinking
how is she less
you must be joking
I do confess
I am not aging
I work alone
you can't be fading
the deed is done
no one's suppressing
the demon lord
you are not empty
just paranoid
and I am emptiness
and everything that hasn't been
that never will
I break the test
and this is me open
this is the best
Track Name: Run Me Down
Run Me Down

you ran me down
until I took
all I had
then you broke me open
desperate and mad
but I am stronger
I see the light
you had more to lose
and I took flight
you didn't deserve
the good I gave
got out when I could
I am saved
run me down
and you are on my own
I am in your face
not a bit of good
resting in my eye
you are all I take
and you are on my own
I am full of hate
I am underground
I am rolling over
hesitate
I am Casanova
I am run me down
you ran me down
until you took
all I had
then you broke me open
desperate and mad
but I am stronger
I see the light
Track Name: Aware of the Flaws
Aware of the Flaws

aware, aware, aware
the stars are flaws
they come and stare

beware, beware, beware
no stones to throw
take everything I own

take care, take care, take care
the sun does love
the galaxy alone

she shone and shone and shone
the brightest one
but keep them all

no fair, no fair, no fair
no love for shame
no tongues to tie

no where, no where, no where
this life falls down
no death compares

don't die, don't die, don't die
your time has come
aware of all the flaws
aware, aware, aware
Track Name: Given
Given

this in not everything
and this is beginning
and I am in disguise
wearing my homemade smile

this is not something
and this is non-ending
and you are inside
growing my naked pride

this is not nothing
and this is my finding
and I am under you
breaking layers past their due

this is something
it's past my trust
all is given
no love's enough
Track Name: No Shame
No Shame

I can't feel this
no shame
all flaws
no words

no plans
no one to feel
her ghost
in sands

my regards keep you
at length
I am sorrow
I am strength

I can feel this
no home
no name
no shame
Track Name: Sport
Sport

it's gonna be
alright
it's gonna be soul for control
take my life

have it all
all alright
no habits to conceal
hold my arms

I should be alright
hold my hand
take me as I am

no soul for me
no love
no support
takes these dreams are my sport

it's gonna be
alright
it's gonna be soul for control
take my life

have it all
all alright
no habits to conceal
hold my arms

I should be alright
hold my hand
take me as I am

no soul for me
no love
no support
takes these dreams are my sport
Track Name: Try
Try

all of this motion
in this glass
holding steady
sudden past
and I feel holy
insincere
breathing faster
hold me here

I feel fury
lies alone
this is disaster
a faulty clone
I am careful
break this stone
solid master
the war is won

she sees everything
in curtains
memory in my brain
confection
love's lost infused
infection
all this commotion
bend my will

I am open
hold me still
calling after
holy fear
all this is broken
on the phone
breeding faster
accident prone

sunshine cupid
dies alone
love you're after
skin off my bones
and nothing taken
dying texts
and I can feel
the pain injects
Track Name: Sailing
sailing
Track Name: the Present
the Present

soft daze in a bed of fire
force waits in a funeral pyre
hazy dreams in a pit alone
high flown in a place unknown

take these hands, take mine, my own
hold me close
take me alone
you are gone in my release
I can feel the evil beast
it holds me down and breaks all hope

no facts can break the wicked spell
all reason flees
I'm rest and then I leave
my heart grows in my soul
I am open
in the present
Track Name: Hard
Hard

it's hard to follow
no one's on track
no tears to wallow
presence be told

a long ride swinging
she broke the mold
love and feeling
cannot switch
makeshift practice
bend into the fold

a tough pill to swallow
a heavy load
but I am shaken
and I am new

I am hero
soft rest
become the few

it's hard to follow
no one's on track
no tears to swallow
presence be told
