Track Name: One Corner
I'm sick of all this lying, no matter how I try, I'm always getting the blue.
With all the time I wasted, I could fill one thousand spaces, nothing's more painful than truth.
I tiptoe everywhere now, so terrified to get caught, more terrified to meet you.
You may think my affliction is just some overreaction, I guess it’s because of you.
I left my feelings in one corner, so when I turn around they leave me too.
You left your troubles on my shoulders, and I find no way to give them back to you.
My mama always told me “don’t play the puppet junky” but as dope you feel so good
You became my addiction, turned my life into fiction, you’re something hard to let loose
I left my feelings in one corner, so when I turn around they leave me too.
You left your troubles on my shoulders, and I find no way to give them back to you.
Track Name: Different Ways
Travelling north, got to sail away, I know it’s a shame, but we took different ways
We shouldn’t have bonds with an old flame, I know it’s a shame, but we need different ways
And it feels bitter and sad, but you know we must take different paths
Travelling north, got to shake the pain, no time to complain, we both know it was insane
It’s time to move on, not to run away, and after a while sure we’ll find new things to break
And it feels bitter and sad, but you know we must take different paths
Yes it feels bitter and sad, but you know we must take different paths
Track Name: The Stranger
I am the stranger in the pouring rain
waiting for someone else to show me the way
Love is my danger and my own kind of pain
Love is the shooting star that blows me away
But I’m sick of crying now and I would say
that I’m not the only one who’s going insane
I am the stranger in the cold morning rain
waiting for someone else someone to take me away
Hate is my danger and my own kind of pain
Hate is an open door that won’t give me a break
Track Name: That Strong
I’ve seen in your face, in the morning light, there’s a couple of things between you and I
In one way we should recognize there’s a couple of things between you and I
Help me to be that strong, now I come home alone
Help me to be that strong, when I come home alone
So in your face, what a thing to find, language comes with no words, the world is left behind
In one day I could live a whole life, if this wearable love fits your heart just right
When I feel the fear my senses rise
Never been that pure before I cried
Help me to be that strong, now I come home alone
Help me to be that strong, when I come home alone
Track Name: Cage Without a Bird
I don’t trust the world I’m watching, I don’t trust the words it talks
I never knew the way to walk it, never knew the way to go
Now when your screen dictates my choices, I hear it right but do it wrong
So to speak I’m not that easy, so to speak I’m not that dumb
I’m a beast in search of freedom and you’re the cage without a bird
I was once so pleased to feed you, now I’ve woken to the show
You… You’re the cage without a bird
Track Name: Follow
So, I been always close to you, just like mom said I should do,
I was told to follow you.
And when good things seemed to change, I could always take your hand ‘till the ground just swallowed you
The way you left me by the shore made me cry so loud for more, shivering and calling you
Felt I was digging my own grave and I thought that was the end,
I wanted to be swallowed too
So, I been always close to you, looking for a piece of truth,
I was glad to follow you
And when I asked “where did he go?” mom said “God will let you know” still I’m here but there’s nothing new.

I miss the words we used to share and the path we followed too,
I still yearn to be with you
Track Name: Creepy Shadows
Breathe and overcome those creepy shadows, I’m coming home
See, no one’s with me, I’m on my own, I’m coming home
All the damage’s done, the pain is over, I’m coming home
Please open your heart, I’m outside and starving, I’m at your door
It took me such a long time to make my ego fade away
It took me such a long time to set my feelings free, am I late my love?
Oh no, it took me such a long time to understand that your hope’s over.
Track Name: In the Cool of the Day
I miss your warm side when the rain
reminds that this game is over
I miss todays and yesterdays
In the cool of the day I’ll stay
I miss myself calling your name
I miss you when I can stay sober
And by the way I’d like to say
In the cool of the day I’ll stay
I wonder if you’ll hear this song
In his car, head on his shoulder
I wonder if you’ll fly away
to the cool of the day that day
I’m speechless now I have to say
I got to go I guess my dear
If there is something left we’ll see
But for the while we’ll stay in the cool of the day, of the day
Track Name: Fix it Up
I can’t fix it up, you broke the shell, I know you’re teasing somebody else
I’m out of bounds and I’m about to tell, I’m waiting no more in this tedious cell
I never meant it but it becomes a hell to know that someone’s got you under a spell
So now I’m shattered but still I can tell, this time the guilt shouldn’t be on myself
I wouldn’t break it up, would let the rain just wash away this overcoming pain
But it’s not easy to give it a chance, give it a break or try to understand
We’re running low my love, you know it right, we’d better face the truth and hold it tight
Send me above, send me away
Wanna be the one, wanna make your day
Track Name: The Thrills
Come on and tell me how it feels
Is it something that gives you thrills?
Is it hard to believe?
Is it a pain from deep inside?
Is it something that hurts your pride?
Does it make you bleed?
You know I been through this before
and you know that I’ve closed my door
I won’t let you in
And now you think everything’s fine
all the stones are so left behind
but some still here
yes I’m still here
Now I feed my soul with your pain
and I guess I should be ashamed
don’t you believe?
You know I been through this before
and you know that I’ve closed my door
I won’t let you in
Wait just one minute more, I can’t believe you’ve gone so far
Wait just one minute more, I do believe you now
Track Name: Crossing Roads
You’re crossing roads with devotion, emotion ain’t enough
You’re crossing roads in an ocean of uncovered faults
You’re on your own, your redemption is calling from above
You’re crossing roads with devotion, emotion ain’t enough
