Track Name: Sweet For Nothing
I have lost the war
Here is where I found
A sweet for nothing dream
A time for coming down
The sun is alone on the rise
As night falls away
My mind opens wide
To greet in the day
I can feel the hope
Shining right on through
I take my deepest breath
I see my clearest view
I know something must break
It’s so fucking near
Won’t make it alone
There’s always the fear
That who I am
And who I’ll never be
Together here as one
Will be the end of me
Just then a voice from the past
Gently did call
Sound filled my head
Words sang that all I want is you
And everything’s got to be just like you want it to
All I want is you
And everything’s got to be just like you want it to
And I do
I’m too far from who you are
There’s more than love to rise above
I’m too far from who you are
The days I’ve known are going home
I’m home
I’m so far away
I’m home
Track Name: Six In One
Goodbye
The leaves they fell
Slowly to the ground
All around

Black
The darkest clouds
Move to close the sun
From everyone

Walk
From shadows red
Turning upside down
Without a sound

Blind
Are eyes that stare
Fixing on the dawn
The color’s gone

Hey you those things you do
Breaking all apart and crashing straight on through
Hey you
What are you going to do when it falls?
Hey kid those things you did
Breathing down the world and now your head still spins
Hey kid
What are you going to do after all?

Words go round and round
And again
Hands go round and round

Searching for answers
Your silence let’s me know
I needed more of that you
You wouldn’t show
Looking back now
There’s no one clear to blame
Because in the end we’re
Just six in one the same
Track Name: Some Things Missing
I used to think leaving this old town, would turn things around, for me
Now that I’m so far away, I’m haunted just the same, what I’d do to hear those voices
I guess the things I’m missing are things I’ll never get back
There’s some things I’m missing, some things I’ll never get back

I’ve got to find a way to keep things real, in this plastic dome, some call home
I guess I could always smash the face in, but that’s been done before, and it’s proven to be useless
Those are things I’m missing, the things I’ll never get back
I guess the things that I’m missing, are things I’ll never get back

I’m gonna find it someday……

You know it’s tearing me apart
To try and think of words to say
How people disappoint me in so many different ways
But we’re all in this as one
We’ve got to find a better way
The world will change, I know it will, believing in someday
Someday…….
Track Name: Turn The Radio
Lying awake staring blank to the wall
Parting eyes fix the rain as it falls
Shadowdance race their way to the floor
Haunting a choice that I made once before
Always alone, broken in time
Thoughts about leaving me within mine
Hesitate, no use for a word
A gift of a sign without being heard
Still I close the world up from you
Because I’m safe in the shell I’m diving into

That’s the way
Turn the radio loud
That’s the way
That’s the way that I found
Everything is going to be all right

It never felt this way again
Tasting the tear of a last fatal win
Jump from the skin of leaving behind
All the unknowns that I’ve come to find
So I will crawl, unable to run
Any escape when you’re under the gun
You forget, I choose to ignore
Turning away and sliding once more
Still I close the world up from you
Because I’m safe in the shell I’m diving into

That’s the way
Turn the radio loud
That’s the way
That’s the way that I found
Everything is going to be all right
Track Name: Expendable Like
I walked on the beach into the open of air
The prints that I followed were leading me there
The waves washed away all my presence of mind
Just a trace of the prints was all I could find
As they led to the rocks and the cliffs by the sea
With each careful step came a fresh memory
Of laughing and playing and dreaming as kids
My love never died but we both know yours did

Expendable like a foolish daydream
Things are not always how they seem
Motionless water reflecting colors alive
The sun says hello and the moon says goodbye
Goodbye


I walked in the rain for a vision once fed
As heaven sweet cries fought from drowning my head
In memories of you and a time that’s now lost
The line has been drawn and our friendship’s the cost
All puddles just form as they gather the rain
While I waited for you but you never once came
Just left standing alone as the rain hides my tears
Each falling drop screams for each falling of year

Expendable like a foolish daydream
Things are not always how they seem
Motionless water reflecting colors alive
The sun says hello and the moon says goodbye
Goodbye


Flying straight clean free
Flying straight clean free
Flying straight clean free
Flying straight clean free
Track Name: Under You
The sun will rise again
Now it’s under you

I’m breaking free from thoughts
Of yesterday

Now and forever will always be
Our time has come
