Track Name: Have You Seen The Moon Tonight?
Have you seen the moon tonight
Playfully she's dancing with her stars up in the sky
Her world is colored green and white
With a nose always stained red

Passed out in the lawn a year ago
The first night I called her my friend
Sleeping in her bed two months ago
I wish I could know her then

Tonight she plays with all her stars
I can touch her but she's so very far
I will always bear her mark
But she'll never know
Track Name: Shadows in the Woods
Let's talk about it
how I'd love to watch your lips
Maybe taste them from your cigaretter
I would never chance a kiss
Let's take photographs of shadows in the woods
I could watch you work for hours sometimes I wish I could

just take a chance
I'm not that bad anymore
Are you convinced yet
I'm not convinced yet

Down by the lakeside we were staring at the stars
If you watch them long enough they don't seem that far
Up on the treetops we were leaving our mark
I've been there every day since life's never been that hard

You make it easy
To smile
Won't you stay for a while
Oh you're so easy
On the eyes
Won't you please come inside

I think about you

Let's venture to downtown pastmidnight
oh the freshly fallen snow makes everything so bright
Let's watch the moon as she falls from the sky
I hope she hit's the ground before she withers and dies
Track Name: Paradise
There's a hole in the floor and it's growing
and it's eating more than I'm showing
Why won't you, why can't you
Why won't you, where are you

In those eyes
there lies a paradise
it's calling, calling

One more dream, one more try
Ten thousand reasons to curl up and die
Words and sounds I scream aloud into your empty shoes
You once claimed with pride, your heart was once open wide
Track Name: Drugs and Circumstance
Tired minds dreaming of a goal so very far away
Naked skin gleaming off the pale moonlight, sweat of the day
It's gorgeous, shines for us, stuck in my pocket
It's brilliant, resilient, never goes away

I dream of a world
where you wouldn't have to go

Please tell me
What you are dreaming of
I want to
share with you

Share my bed with circumstance, no I never thought I'd see you again
Awake much later than, I had ever planned, for a friend
Come join me on the moon, I'm the only one left
Entice me, take my hand beneath the table no they'll never know
Track Name: She is a Tiger
Face down, on the ground I was alone again
What happens now, I cry out to her as words like daggers rip apart my soul
She cried again, please won't you be my friend, in my time of need
But in her hand she holds a knife, and another man's life, and it's clear it's him or me

She is a tiger no remorse
She is hunger backed by force
She is love

My last money for a while, let's grab some food and make things right
I offered to take her bloodstained coat
She said I'm a great man, as she took my hand, and followed me into my room
But all the while she had another wrapped around her finger tips
As I passionately kissed her bloody lips
She destroyed a perfect mind with her twisted game of lies
But that's okay because I'm still her friend
Track Name: Dragon
I've been thinking 'bout a way to keep the dragon at bay
these walls are rumbling and crumbling and showing their age
She offers peace if we at least let her come and stay
but her words are paired with flames an aging grudge and year old rage

Down by the water she screamed
Down by the water
We solved everything with a knife in my back

If the lighthouse were to fall
would you notice, would you even care
My father, and my daughter, will never know
How much I cared for her
only the water truly understands

The monster came and took away everything I had loved
Hellfire blew from deep inside I nearly died just my luck
I nearly struck her down saved the town and won the day
but the pain within her eyes caught me by surprise and I let her run away
Track Name: Failure
twenty four hours of waiting for anything to occur
And I gave myself to you
Watching the hour hand cycle round
Shouting down the hall
Pretending the echos belonged
to anyone else

What she said
Breaks my heart
What she said means everything to me

Why am I fine
Why aren't i crying
All I do is fail
And wait for something new

I smell like a mountain of cigarettes
I haven't smoked in days
Sleeping is a lie
She sat alone in my bedroom
as I pretended to die
what she doesn't know
is I'm fine
Track Name: Sweater
I fell apart, days are long and hard and they never seem to end
But that walk, to my concrete haven just might have saved my life

The cold
is a small price to pay
to be greeted by an angel
and shielded by her wings
She sang
A simple tune
and gave me hope

You're far away but that's okay
cuz I still here you anyway
Your words whisper softly
Deep within my ear
I miss you, I miss you every night
I've sprouted wings or just something that lets me fly every night
Can we please go somewhere tonight

Bless the day I complimented your sweater
Bless the rain that turned into snow in your hair
Track Name: Leave
The sun has gone away but I'm still waiting for you
What was there is gone, but she's still singing for you
The happiness inside, the reason I'm alive
Is quickly fading
But I can read the signs and you're never coming home

Leave me here to die
And I will fight for you
Leave me here to lie
And I will fight for two
Please come home

I wasted all my savings on a brand new state of mind
but it just wasted away
I sleep through every morning, and stay up every night
just to watch the stars above my head fade away
the sand inside my shoes, the water and abuse
flood my mind every time
I stand, in the doorway and I think
what the hell have I done with my life
Track Name: Mornings
There's no work today
Can we please run away
off into the morning sun
Where we'll get married every day
something new to celebrate
every moment for the rest of our lives
We'll run to canada
I'll buy you a panda
And share my dreams with you every night
It's been too long since I've seen your face
On something other than a computer screen

You quit your job I'll quit my band
we'll go see exotic lands
I'll sing to you every night
We'll fight off monsters as we laugh
We'll make new friends and teach them math
One and one make two
You and I make love so true
It's getting dark now what would you say
let's run to the hill and gaze
upon the night so filled with stars
