Track Name: Get Carried Away
If you
Could look inside me
What kind of man
Would you want me to be

Would I
Have to think like you do
See through your eyes
Parade the disguise
Get carried away
Everyday

Would you
Bestow some time
Strangle your mind
Imagine the thought
Found but then lost

Would you
Judge who I am
Convict where I stand
Get carried away
Everyday

If I
Could be like you are
Be one in the line
Numbing sublime
Get carried away
Everyday
Track Name: It's You
It’s true
The beauty I knew
Of the freshest found rose
Is not as beautiful
As you

It’s true
The beauty I knew
Of the ocean’s mystery
It means nothing now to me

You’re every thought of mine
Can’t get you off my mind
Give me your every thought
Your passion is what I want

It’s you

It’s true
The beauty I knew
Of the deepest shade of blue
It’s not as cool as you

It’s true
The beauty I knew
Of a secret desire
Erupting into fire

You’re every thought of mine
Can’t get you off my mind
Your lips I’d die taste
And burn in your embrace

I want you
To drink my wine
Let me into your fire

It’s you
Track Name: I'm Going Down
Once young- a boy
Life was filled with nothing but joy
New age- new time
Youth is gone but it cries to be mine
Things stay- undone
To foreshadow all the things that will come
Still time- passed by
Leaving the trace of our last goodbye
The thoughts- I’ve seen
Living through life but what does it mean
But you- know me
The addict just wants to be free
Hate burns- my throat
Taste dismay in the words that you wrote
I’ll stand- by you
Pleasure of pain after all we’ve been through

Now here- I am
Follow the path but I don’t think I can
Revive- regress
No longer happily being depressed
Touch eyes- farewell
Taking first steps so please wish me well
Once young- a boy
Life was filled with nothing but joy

Follow the ash of a fire flame
Ascend to the night and be gone
Change to stars in an endless night
A vision perfected in form
And in this glow of heavenly tears
And fires which burn the sky
One thought lies eternal with these
And resides within you and I

Lonely feet grip a tired road
Following steps to a home unknown
A gift of birth in time and space
Bridges burn as I leave this place
This blackened heart will lead the way
Through months and years and everyday
To search for means and answers to
The faults that lie in me and you
Track Name: Rain
She was the best friend
That I could find
She never betrayed me
She always got me high

Don’t you know that the only thing
That can stop us is a drought
Let’s make it rain

Now that the times are much
Harder than before
I see her more and more and more
It’s not the same

Don’t you know that the only thing
That can stop us is a drought
I want it to rain
Let’s make it rain

Stop and listen
To what I’m really trying to say
Even the strongest love
Can slowly fade away
But it’s okay
To fade away
Track Name: Twenty-Five
I was out of my head for some time that’s gone past
But the person I was has arrived home at last
Turn back the page and the clock and this time
Balancing thin on the finest of lines
Yet how could it be that I’ve turned out this stray
If you know that I’m lost well then show me the way
For this place where I am now is part of my past
The present is lost and the future won’t last

Down from the clouds
And the fields full of green
The spiraling hills and the mountains and the trees
Sitting alone with the island myself
I christen the bottle a cry just for help

So please, please let me in
I’m afraid and it’s wearing me thin
For my time here has been once and gone
Now it’s time to move on

I was out of my head for some time that’s gone past
But the person I was has arrived home at last
He looks just the same though his heart has grown cold
His mind has stayed young but his body’s grown old
Yet how could it be that he’s turned out this stray
If you know that he’s lost well then show him the way
For this place where he is now is part of my past
The present is lost and the future won’t last

Down from the clouds
And the fields full of green
The spiraling sands and the oceans and the streams
Sitting alone with the island myself
I christen the bottle a cry just for help

So please, please let me in
I’m afraid and it’s wearing me thin
For my time here has been once and gone
Now it’s time to move on
For my time here has been once and gone
Now it’s time to move on
Track Name: I Remember
Kgb and christmas tree
Acapulco gold
Does it mean anything
Now that we’ve grown old

So light a smoke
I’ll tell a joke
Remember the magic middles
So much time has gone by
Thoughts of you still race through my mind

I’ll remember
Those days forever

Listen to me
And I’ll listen to you
How the hell did we know
We could always see things through

Often times
I’d feel depressed
About the world around me

And you’d say
Cast a line
We’ll kill some time
Soon everything is gonna be just fine

Night would come
And we’d cruise around
Forget about this old rusty town

I’ll remember
My friends forever

I’d like to sing this song for you
It’s the least that I can do
Celebrating memories
Immortalized in melody
Track Name: Faith
I just woke
From a dream
You won’t believe
The things I’ve seen
My family
My closest friends
Time felt like
It would never end
We shared some laughs
We shared some tears
Our love survived
After all these years
But here’s where I stand
A boy to a man
I’ve grown some
But you know me
Home is where I come from

Cast away
Sleep my daze
Dream of love
That comes from above

God won’t get me through this day
And God won’t answer when I pray
And God won’t talk but that’s okay
God hears all each and everyday
God won’t even take the time
And God won’t help to clear my mind
And God won’t fill this heart of mine
God’s love well that’s a real fine line

You have to find faith in something
But why put it in God?
Look to the face in the mirror
Find faith in the person you are
Track Name: Wish
Wish
I Wish for
Something more
Than the last one

A new toy
Can’t fill the void

Running from the certainty
That you are growing old
A forgotten secret told

Give
Give unto
Sleepless feelings
Are never gonna leave

I have a gun
I still can come

Round the bend
Lies a secret
That I can’t understand
So alone again I stand

Wish
