Track Name: Lead On
She will sigh "I can try"
It could not be more
empty than any lie
Even I, go along

See her through the door
"No one wants to hear it"
I could not say more
than freeing up and freeing you

Leaving on my own...

It's not what's happening
That's a way around
It's not now and never been
Whatever you know

See her through the door
"No one wants to hear it"
I could not say more
than freeing me

Lead on...

Hear a sound
Here and now
"Here, into the crowd"
Track Name: Out of Mind
Well it's hard to find
the one you truly love
Well it's hard sometimes
to say that it's enough,
sleeping on my own

"Where were you when I was down?
Where were you when I was gone?
When will you believe you're all alone?"

And everything you say is overblown
I don't care anymore
When everyone you had is dead and gone
They won't mind anymore
Put your body out of mind

Well it's hard to find
the one you truly love
Well it's hard sometimes
to say that it's enough,
sleeping on my own

I know, false hope
How long to go?

"Where were you when I was down?
Where were you when I was gone?
When will you believe you're all alone?"

And everything you say is overblown
I don't care anymore
When everyone you had is dead and gone
They won't mind anymore
Put your body out of mind

Out of mind...
Track Name: Buried
Beside your bones
Mirrored

Different and cold
"we don't leave I'm told,
we stay"

Crowd your boat with idiots
and when you drown, that's it

"Hey I've hurt so long,
take me off this show"

Different and cold
"we don't leave I'm told,
it's too far to go"
Then when I'm sold...

She'll come
She'll come

"Whenever you want me to
I'll come back and see you
Whenever you want me to
I'll come back and see you"

(She'll come)
A feeling you'll never get
or one that you should regret
(She'll come)
A feeling so deep inside
It's taking you for a ride
Track Name: The Place
Feeding my doubt,
instead of what was true
Even without,
I thought of what you'd do

Well, it's not
that you're hanging on your
own words and feel off

Meet at the place
where we had met before
There was no trace,
let's see if you still bore me

Well, it's not, it's not
that you're hanging on your
own words and seem odd

Seated, and everyone you know
is glad to be here
Feeling, like everyone you know
is hiding fear
Weapon, inside my head will stay
until you come near
Let it go now...
Seeking, something more than just
a life with you

When all your battles overcome
The place will live inside your mind but
if you could see it you would know that you lost it
Track Name: This and More
Picture a scene, dawn
Facing the ocean
All of it seems calm
Void of emotion
Crushing, the weight
of this and more
Track Name: Everything at Once
While everybody else is fooling around
I'm thinking 'bout how I'm gonna go down
It's everything at once that's making me frown
but I don't know why

While everybody else is fucking around
I'm thinking how long 'til I'm in the ground
It's taken all night to figure it sounds
like I should know why

Pretty dark...

Ways to follow through
Pick it and see what grew
That's not who I knew
but who was really you?

While everybody else is sucking you down
I'm thinking 'bout how you're gonna feel now
It's everything at once that's making you drown
but I don't know why

While everybody else is kicking you around
I'm thinking how long 'til you're in the ground
It's taken all night to figure it sounds
like I should know why

Everything...

And mistakes are due
Kick it and feel the gloom
Cut down half the bloom
but no that isn't you
Track Name: Phase Two
Going out alone is so easy to do
but I could be the one for you
Stay inside where there's nothing to lose,
getting high

Feeling you don't
or that you won't
Keep it stowed,
far as you go
Playing on my sense of bond
Seething on, it's you

Going out alone is so easy to do
but I could be the one for you
Stay inside where there's nothing to lose,
getting high

Feeling you don't
or that you won't
Keep it stowed,
far as you go
Playing on my sense of bond
Seething on, it's you

I've been rolling back to you for so long it's insane
Never feel it wane
I've been rolling back to you as a function of hate
"No I'm feeling great"
I've been rolling back to you for so long it's insane
Never feel it wane
I've been rolling back to you as a function of hate
"No I'm feeling great, yeah"
Track Name: Life in Time
Small speck in the dark
Obsessed with your mark
Pleased when anyone cares
A fleeting pursuit

Alright, awake, and buy

'Cause there's no time
coming up round behind
And you don't even feel like greeting it
Back up look at how it's designed

Turn seconds to years
Clouds come and they clear
We could walk in the park
Instead we consume

Alright, awake, and buy

'Cause there's no time
coming up round behind
And you don't even feel like greeting it
Back up look at how it's designed
Track Name: Lessons
It's not clear, our fate when we die
Make it a part of your life
Plot it out, fear in disguise
No way I'm ready in time

Lessons here, places to go
Taking off all on your own
Falling out, saying goodbyes
No way I'm even alright

Here's hoping to an even keel
That notion isn't even real
If I can see it, you can steal
Get over it and keep it sealed

We should fear fate when we die
Make it a part of our lives
Plot it out, fear in your eyes
No way I'd push it aside

Here's hoping to an even keel
That notion isn't even real
If I can see it, you can steal
Get over it and keep it sealed

Say "you don't know me"
and it's taped to the door
While I continue passing out on the floor
And I don't read it but I hoped you'd stay or
guess you don't know me after all
Track Name: Forget Why
Raging on and forget why
Just outside, just don't wanna get in?
Sniffing on it to get by
Just don't lie, just don't wanna get in, huh?

Can't ever be alone
Replace your folks
and never seem them all
Stop picking at your soul
'cause I've been in for years

Needle, I can't find the worth
While the words come up in inside
I return to Earth

What you on, I feel fine
Just outside, just don't wanna get in?
Sipping on it to get by
Just don't lie, just don't wanna get in, huh?

Can't ever be alone
Replace your folks
and never seem them all
Stop picking at your soul
or you'll never be at all
One day you'll know
'cause I've been in for years

Needle, I can't find the worth
While the words come up in inside
I return to Earth
