Track Name: Dreamer
I woke up this morning
And I looked all around
What I saw was a warning
Coming up from the ground

When I wake up to see that it’s the afternoon
Wishing somehow
I could be closer to the moon

Cause it’s you

A ghost so ancient that it dare not show
To see me caused a hatred that would only grow
Decisions to forget me
Cause he felt I betrayed the
Brotherly rules we

Wrote them out in words that we had just acquired
Creating rules we wouldn’t break out of impulse desires

Cause it’s you
Track Name: Ghost Town Part I
Part I

Distracted by love and condemned by its pain
You’ll never forget all the things you have gained
Experience the new places, you’ll never forget
I just hope you can remember, the way her hair went

You don’t wanna live anymore
Cause the things you loved once
You can no longer adore
Like a ghost walking through
She can find her way, without you

Now and again when you finally find her
You’ll see it’s already at an end
She’s destroying everything good
That could have been

It’ll be hard
And you’ll probably never heal
At least you loved once
And you’ll know it was real
No longer a ghost in a dreamers field
Track Name: Ghost Town Part II
Part II

The waters changing
And you can see it now
Her eyes are shaping
To get around

She can never see what she’s done
Cause now the absence of love
Has caused her to blinded by fate
And what she could become
Everything she wanted to be
She swore she’d never do
Look, look, look, look
Ohh, ohh

All the pieces of her you once loved
And spent some much time trying to forget
Things will never be the same
Cause neither of you let

He shoulda let you be you
instead of trying to change
By letting you choose
Not replacing the blame

Controlling your thoughts
For fear you would lie
Cause he couldn’t accept
The way you said goodbye
Track Name: Blondie
I miss being the one you looked up to
When you would say, how proud you were
I miss the days when life were simple
No worries no cares, just love that could cripple

And I wont feel the same
cause after all, still have so much to gain

Those were days when love
Was all that we needed
Too bad the love has gone
My hearts been defeated

And my heart, has lost the war
But my mind has been here before

Between you and me
It sounds very selfish
But I will plead

For you to be on my level
To see things as I do
You will see

Search for my heart it’s somehow, gone missing
Run for the hills, you’ve lost all, chance of convincing
Me that you love me for
Who I was before

To be alone for a moment
And deal with my problems
Of you and me

And without all the pressure
Of being a model
For you to be

I don’t want you to see me
Suffering like this,
I want to be strong

And to be your hero
The one you worshiped
You, will see

Now that it’s over
You wont see me suffer
Cause I will be gone

And I can’t way to see
All you’ll accomplish
When I am gone
Track Name: God Forbid
Im done with love for tonight
Let's meet again in the daylight

I'd rather spend this time alone
Then lay around gather my insides

God forbid I tried at all
To let you know that I choose to fall
Turned around you almost knew
The words you thought but you couldn't choose

From beneath your bed my demons wait
For you to let this cage of inmates free

Only you could hold key
To giving me the freedom I need

God forbid your secrets out and all the feelings you shouldn't doubt
In giving you the space you need I might as well just leave you be

I couldn't get past that feeling of doubt from the touch of your skin
When I felt the thickness and trim of your breath as you vent to me

I couldn't see much apart from the repairs that you set out to make
And with a slight touch, a gesture now in future it tends to show to late

I don't give a damn about what you do
As long as when you come here you do what you're suppose to
Track Name: Done with Love (Requiem)
I never meant to cause you pain
I merely meant to ignite the fire inside your brain
Track Name: Behind the Scenes
I can hear the voice inside my head
Whispering the thoughts I shoulda said

Hold me tight so I could not let go
Lead me through the garden of your home

See memories that have come between us
Leaving me only with a bread elitist

Hid behind and disguise my feelings with
A substances I create within my brain it lives
Within my brain lives

What you don’t see is what I’m working on behind the scenes
Changing how I’m perceived
Never asked you to run or leave letters I’d learn to love
Changing who I’d become

The ice we grazed grew beyond our grasp
Waded through the day as if it’s our last

Pull me in then I’ll betray us
Leave a statue to replicate us

Tried searching for what we had infused
Not a soul insight left for me to use

What you don’t see is what I’m working on behind the scenes
Changing how I’m perceived
Never asked you to run or leave letters I’d learn to love
Changing who I’d become
Track Name: Proem
I will come back to you
In a different form
After I’ve done some searching
And some quick reform

I will come back to you
As a truthful man
I just wanna treat you
Like a real man can

And you will go
And find love
Unlike mine

You should go
And move on
Find a better man

Life is of a dark age
The only enemy I see
Is this man in the mirror
Starring back at me

Will you forget me
And all that we faced
No it was perfect
I’m/your not that easily replaced

When you go, go slow
Take my heart with you
Don’t show anyone

I said run as fast as you can
Cause I’m running from my own demons
And this is why I must behave
And dine alone to prevent this fate
From becoming real and destroying trust
It’s hard to see now this is for us
Track Name: Rue (feat Junior)
I will come back to you
In a different form
After I’ve done some searching
And some quick reform

I will come back to you
As a truthful man
I just wanna treat you
Like a real man can

And you will go
And find love
Unlike mine

You should go
And move on
Find a better man

Life is of a dark age
The only enemy I see
Is this man in the mirror
Starring back at me

Will you forget me
And all that we faced
No it was perfect
I’m/your not that easily replaced

When you go, go slow
Take my heart with you
Don’t show anyone

I said run as fast as you can
Cause I’m running from my own demons
And this is why I must behave
And dine alone to prevent this fate
From becoming real and destroying trust
It’s hard to see now this is for us
Track Name: Destroying Me (feat Junior)
I don’t know which way to go
From the mountains where the snow
Lays down to let the grass grow
Still I don’t know which way to go

Will you lead me to the top
Letting me know when to stop
I look to you for my guidance
You’re my teacher you’re my silence

Tried to teach you all I knew
All you did was just refuse
You knew exactly what to do
But you just couldn’t choose

And this is why I have to leave
You’re too busy toying me
Never knowing when to stop
I said it once I’ve had enough

You’re so blinded by your love for me
You can’t see you’re destroying me

So tell me now what am I to do
Turn around and live without you
I hope you truly thought this through
Wish you could see me as I see you

I can’t live without your love for me
Please come back and be whole with me
Track Name: Father of Mine
You’re leaving your mark while I find my way
Through the dark and through the shame

When I walk upon, I see that I don't belong
And suddenly it all seems so wrong

And when you go, you will know...

That I will become
More than just your son
More than a man
Who once, cost you so much

For me once,
And many times before
You would adjust
And you would always be kind….

Father of mine
You wouldn't laugh
When I would cry
The memories hurt
From when I was nine
Wish you could breath
Like your lungs were mine

At just seventeen, I saw my dreams
I learned how to adjust so I could feed my needs

With you almost gone, it is clear
Why I should now shed a tear

Your will is mine
To execute

When you’re away
Don't forget to say
You were once a great father
Once a great father

I will get you home
So you can be alone
With all that is yours
And will all become mine

Father I will cry
When you are gone
I will have died
You gave me life
You gave it your all
So I could have
So much to call

It’s hard to believe
That you could cry
I've never seen
Someone I love die
Now with you gone
I will leave my pride
I will be always kind
Father of mine

My only wish before you go
Is I could see that smile
So I could know
That I am still your child
Track Name: Arc En Ciel
I hope you know that I am safe
And accepting my fate
An eternity you’re chained inside my mind
Dreaming of you and I

Even though
I wish you would stop
And take a look back at these things you forgot
A boy with a heart
A man with no soul
You lost it all ‘cause you chose to be cold

Now you’re gone
And in my life, I’ll try to move on
So much pain and fighting then
Would you call it love my friend

I hope you know that i’ll forsake
The things you did to me that day
I know you did flawlessly
No regrets no sympathy
But it still hurts just the same
Now, Now

I wish, I wish you’d even try
At least to call me to say our goodbyes
Who’s with you now
I hope that you have found
A man worth your time
Hope he comes to find

That your heart still belongs to me
Despite your current company
I know somewhere deep down you still love
This boy here you’re still dreaming of
Track Name: House on the Hill
When we met she told me stories of
The things he did the life she thought he’d lived
Strange how cold his hands felt on her face
So she said told me of the place

The view the love was there, the memories they shared
In the house on the hill and how her heart was filled
With warmth and happiness in her flower dress
As a child she was always loved

Then sirens blinked outside she had no place to hide
Her perfect family destroyed by her memories
Then her mother screamed honey stop these games
She is fragile she is my angel

What he thought was real was never right
And to him it was just another night
But not to her it was the end of her life
Memories of her with bruises from her father's fist

There’s no chance for him to save
There’s no chance that he can take it back
The pain is always gonna weigh
Weigh her down, down to the ground

Then he dug that dagger deep beneath her neck she had secrets to keep
And then she saw the other side of him short of her earnings with her fathers yearning
For her to be more than he was before
The bar is set by man with regret

What’s a girl suppose to do
With no one to protect her for you
What’s a girl suppose to be
When all she knows is how not to believe

Mistakes of the past the rising sun will shed some light at last and the work to be done
Life has a funny way of saving us from pain
By serving us misery tied to our history
What’s a girl suppose to do
When all she wants to do is run from you
How’s a girl suppose to know
How to show someone she loves
