1. bring it low

so tell me is it hard to see
the possibility
that i am not the person that i seem?

i'll show you everything inside;
will you open up your mind?
cause i'm more like you than
you may ever know.

we're playing a game;
we've got to let it go.
nobody's winning this way;
we're gonna lose it all.

so baby was a shooting star;
she crawled into my heart,
but time revealed that she was fading out.

now choke everything you feel
and as it all conceal,s
and never heals,
you always feel alone...
we always feel alone.

you're playing your game;
you've got to let it go.
you'll never win it this way;
i know you want it all.

no one wins;
we're playing a game.

you said, "i'm on my game,
and i've got it all.
i'm on my way,
and i want it now."

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. do you believe me?

when you tried to build me up with the wrong words,
all it did was kill me.
and when you said you trust in all that i feel,
i never quite believed you.
and when you tried to help me out by telling me how we should be,
i disagreed.

so hold me up,
and you should see
you're not supposed to be my enemy. i know your side;
i understand,
but you can let me feel it's safe in my hands.
your every word is full of doubt;
i've never had a way 'til now to let it out. if this is how it's gotta' be,
it will never be easy.

you can make this very easy if you can show me you believe me.
you could kill me.
you can kill me, or you can make this very easy.

so let me breathe;
just let me be.
i'd show you more than you could ever hope to see.
intentions are the same i find,
but even if they are i still need room to shine.
so give it time and give it space:
this isn't just a slap across your face.
if this is how it's gotta' be, i will never speak freely.

won't you believe in me?
won't you believe in me?
believe in me, now.

do you believe me?
you gotta believe.
you've gotta believe me.
do you believe me?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

3. shell of a man

i won't nurture and feed this bitterness;
it's worthless in any of this.
love and forgiveness are timeless and true.
i know you're full of fear;
i hope i'm never like you.

i won't nurture and feed this hate;
it's empty and doesn't change a thing.
love will endure when it comes to the end.
i see you're insecure;
i know there's hope for you.

why can't i let go?
i'm only the shell of a man.
i'm lost in myself
and afraid of who i really am:
the shell of a man.

i won't nurture and feed hostility;
it's pointless to dwell on my anger.
love is the answer, inane as it seems.
i know you're full of hate;
i hope i'm never the same.

i won't nurture and feed this pain;
imagine the magnitude of
love that is given the chance to prevail.
i see you're full of tears,
and i can sense your hell.

take what you want to,
now that you've got the chance to.
take it why don't you,
now that you've got the chance to.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

4. repeating, repeating

i'm burning the candle at both ends
while holding it under water.
i'm looking with tunnel vision and
i'm bleeding to make this all worthwhile.

i know it seems to never end
this way i've made it in.

repeating, repeating...
i'm burnt out, burnt out
on everything.
repeating over again,
nurn out, burnt out on everything...
will this end?

i want to be off this board i can't.
i tell you that everything is all right.
i'm looking for time to find myself
with all of this madness in my life.

i'm burning the candle;
i'm burning the candle at both ends.
will this end?

this will end.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

5. congratulations

you kiss your life goodbye
like lovers in the night...
returning home alone,
as if you suffered a heart attack.
and under the weight of the world
that nearly broke your back,
it was written on your face;
i could see it in your face.

congratulations:
today is another day.
it's coming, crashing down to break you again.
congratulations:
you can change.
sometimes when lying on your back,
you learn to breathe again.

black out your bitterness;
forget your jaded bliss.
your shadow falls on me;
you blame it all on a mutiny
when everybody around you always seems so free.
i can see it in your eyes;
it's burning in your eyes.
nothing left to lose;
there's nothing left to lose.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

6. jewel to sparkle

please don't turn your eyes my way;
they're unnerving and undeniable underneath the work that you do.
i can feel the real you.
i can see the real you.

you're a jewel to sparkle around my neck.
the fragrant scent of morning i cannot forget.
you're a jewel to sparkle around my neck...
the fragrant scent of morning i cannot forget.

you're smiling wide with slender frame;
you're immoveable in recollection.
underneath everything that you do,
i can feel the real you.
i can see inside you.

you're a jewel to sparkle;
you're a jewel to sparkle.
through my mind you wonder,
spell to bind forever.
pain and ease together,
love can pull us under.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

7. white days

rise before the sun but leave when it lifts.
the show must go on so we start on the run.
buy us a meal or buy us some time
if we want to arrive there.
look ahead at the road:
you can't see a thing.
buy maybe we'll make it before it's too late.
there is no time to wait.

turn, turn on the lights.
as they drive by, we're blown aside.
keep your eyes on the road,
hands on the wheel.
don't let us slip.
this is almost a nightmare.
turn, turn on the heat.
they can't feel a thing as i fall asleep.
keep your eyes off the white.
don't let us die tonight.

white days like this i'll never miss;
they only come once a year.
white days like this i'll never miss;
they only come once a year.

feel the passing of day
though nothing has changed.
night is determined to force us away.
buy me a room with pen and a muse;
this is almost resourceful.
stop, but don't hit the brakes;
they don't do a thing.
we made it to nowehere with no time to spare.
no one said life was fair.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

8. the hardest things

they couldn't have told me
that it would be like this;
that it could be like this
for you.

i wish i would have known
that it could be like this;
that it would be like this
for you.

i know you're hurting;
i know you're reaching out.
i'm sure you wonder what this is all about...
you couldn't sweat full, full words be known to you...
i'm sure you feel it;
you know i feel it too.

sometimes the hardest things in life
are the things we have to do.
and even when we feel it's right,
i never want to hurt you.

it's never simple
deciding what should be.
there's still a void here
when you're an absentee.
you could be angry,
but you're a bigger man.
we know you'll make it;
never forget to stand.

you have always been;
you always will.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

9. dtm

hold it up,
my diamond in the rough.
i always thought that it would be so easy;
let it out.
it's never like you were so empty
and tired, and i can hardly take it here.

i won't give up again, as tired as i am. with everything i can,
i won't give up again.

wake me up:
my inspiration seems.
my mind is like a prison bound to hold me...
force it out;
the damage has been done.
we're broken, departed,
and we can hardly spend it here.

with thoughts of indecision,
destroyed my ambition;
we'll lose the last position.
i stand alone.
i won't give up again.

hold it out,
your candle in the dark.
what doesn't kill you makes you stronger they say.
let it go;
it's time to tell them so.
you're older and wiser,
and you can hardly breathe it here.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

10. trance

you suck the life
out of the crowd
without a sound.
i see your kind all around
and of course you're all one in the same.
you suck the life
out of the room
with merely a glance.
you are the slave of a clone
of a petrified fool on a throne.

so here i am.
you're in a trance.
you're in a trance.
you betrayed me.
you're in a trance.
you're in a trance.
you're not the same.
you're in a trance.
you're in a trance.
you still need me.
you're in a trance.
you're in a trance.

be careful;
we're watching,
and you can feel us stalking.
we're patient and thorough;
you'll never see us let go.

you suck the life
out of the new
with all that you do.
they are naive and are driven to find their own identity.
you strip the joy
out of their souls
with all of your rules.
you are the fashion of now
and the sickening flavor of cool.
we'll tear your heart right out of your chest;
you're already dead.
you can surrender
or savor the scent of your old victories.
we'll steal the fire out of your eyes,
turn it on you.
we are the thorn in your side
and a bullet to blow you apart.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

11. in conversation

this agitation
revisits me.
w wanna communicate
so freely.

but when you talk to me, i don't think that i understand you.
so hesitation would tell, tell me,
help me to think before, before i speak.

but when you talk to me,
i feel as if i can't control it.
can we just agree,
cause you when you talk to me,
i feel as if i can't control it.
can we just agree?

in conversation
i fail miserably.
i want to be someone else
whenever i speak.

but when you talk to me,
i don't think that you understand me.
can we just agree,
cause you when you talk to me,
i don't think that you understand me.
can we just agree?

conversation is amazing when we're free to say things people often won't because they hate themselves.
these situations almost daily have a way of making people understand that all of us are one.
but isolation and division will be our destruction, if we can't communicate.
so as i contradict myself, and forget all i've said, i am free...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

12. into the dark

dad, your boy is about to fall;
he walks the razor's edge.
he's on the brink of fading out;
he's at his bitter end.
dad, your boy who used to run:
you taught him how to crawl.
he left home to find his own;
now all he had is gone.

in your eyes i see a darkness that torments you and in your head where it dwells.
i'd give you my hand if you'd reach out and grab it;
let's walk away from this hell.

mom, your baby is on his way;
he'll soon be at your side.
cause he's forgotten all he's known;
a part of him has died.
mom may never understand why baby's come and gone.
he left home to find his own,
now all he has are lies.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

13. as it stands

everything i have in my head:
it begins to fade away.
i searched for it and i longed for it,
and now i know it's gone.
everything has slipped away,
and i'm so overwhelmed.
everything that rests upon my shoulders fell.
i would like to tell anyone who has depended on me for themselves,
i'm sorry.
and everyone i've held in my arms
i believed i've pushed away.
i would be there if i could be there,
but as it stands, i'm gone.
everyone has slipped away;
don't be overwhelmed.
everyone that loved me more than i could tell,
i'm sorry.
there's a private hell for anyone who lives to only love themselves.
everyone has slipped away...
everyone has slipped away...
everyone has slipped away...
everything has slipped away....

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

14. everything

how are you feeling?
what are your reasons?
do you feel love or a lack there of?
love is a bond without reason:
a cry for connection,
a light in your eyes.
love is a reason for living, a reason for trying, a reason for life.
forget the feeling;
get all your of reasons.
life is love or the lack there of.
love is a bond without reason,
a cry for connection,
a light in your eyes.
love is a reason for living, a reason for trying, a reason to cry.
love is a bond without reason.
a cry for connection,
a light in your eye love is a reason for living, a reason for dying...
love is everything.

love means everything.
