The Road 04:10
Started down the road less traveled Lost myself along the way Met a man that had the answers But I let him slip away Hunkered down in my depression Never seem to see a way Lonely tears are lit by headlights Cares are drowned another day Changing faces every night It’s all up to me Days burning off the night While loves lost at sea and lost on me The bitter taste of time forgotten A memory of better days The tortured skin that I have fought it Begs only for a place to lay Changing faces every night It’s all up to me Days burning off the night While loves lost at sea and lost on me Started down the road less traveled Found myself along the way Met a man that had the answers So I thought I’d let him stay

You And I 04:02
You and I, the space was distorted, ignore it. As time goes by, remember the reckless, who brought us. Each time I try, the waves are upon us, relentless. Another lie, broken defenses, it’s progress. Each time I dream, the colors run and I’m left with empty pages Float down the stream, around the sun, and I’m left with empty pages. You and I, the faces that haunt us, upon us. Oversized, bigger than God is, forgot us. Stay in the lines, not born with the knowledge, just taught it. Another life, time won’t work against us, I promise. Each time I dream, the colors run and I’m left with empty pages Float down the stream, around the sun, and I’m left with empty pages of you. Another gleam of races run, leaves nothing but empty pages Float down the stream, around the sun, and I’m left with empty pages of you. You and I, the space was distorted, ignore it. Another life, time won’t work against us, I promise.

Swamp Thing 02:37
You know it’s time for the long line You’re weighing heavy on the sun You punch a ticket to the big time By never knowing what you’d done On and on the fall has come This look is not a good one A grown man shouldn’t cry On and on the fall has come Never stop to wonder why I’m never gonna fly Your face was gonna stand out Your name was never gone Time to take this to the flip side And turn your cheek on what is won On and on the fall has come The tune it rings familiar A haunted lullaby On and on the fall has come Never stop to wonder why I’m never gonna fly I’m never gonna fly I’m never gonna fly I’m never gonna fly I’m never gonna fly

Faced 02:56
The winds of fate can forget our time and blow onward towards regret How many ways can you say a lie before our world is a mess Not that I mind if you come around once in a while, to help me sleep, to make ends meet It’s just I always thought you were one of a kind, and it’s time my eyes were opened. I faced the pain like I couldn’t die and fell downward, in distress The many faces of your alibis were my comfort, I confess Not that I mind if you come around once in a while, to help me sleep, to make ends meet It’s just I always thought you were one of a kind, and it’s time my eyes were opened. Not that I mind if you come around once in a while, to help me sleep, to make ends meet It’s just I always thought you were one of a kind One of a kind One of a kind One of a kind One of a kind And my eyes will never open

Burn Up 05:08
In the morning on the floor on bended knee, I’m smothered by the daylight Broken over by the truth too plain to see, just another in a long line Time to fake it as the night comes back to me, I’m uncovered by your insight I never listen to the voices whispering, to come over to the dark side You turned me over at the borderline, wheels up from the smile you’re hiding A broken promise of a different kind, lost smoke from the fire you’re riding With the turn of door I’ll have to surrender After the fall I’ll never remember With the flashes of the real controlling me, resolution in the moonlight Overflowing with a wave of treachery, evolution of a deadline You turned me over at the borderline, wheels up from the smile you’re hiding A broken promise of a different kind, lost smoke from the fire you’re riding With the turn of door I’ll have to surrender After the fall I’ll never remember Never is a long time Never is a long time Never is a long time
