Track Name: The World Inside I
I see a light shining in your eyes, reflecting a shimmering lie
A costumed clown disguised the same
Intrigued by the sun and the moon

Nothing ever changes. Nothing ever changes

Do you see the seasons change? Tell me if it has rained
When you look to the heavens do you see past the stars
Because they’ll never answer your call

Nothing ever changes. Nothing ever changes

Do you remember the lessons that you learned
Do you realize what the years, the tears have meant
Love is your ocean. Filled with fear you jump in
You cling to the side of life, trying to escape

The enemy
You are the enemy
You are at war

On the outside I am strong. No pain no weakness will you find
Push aside confusion. I battle endlessly
A victor in a war of one. I see myself, I disappear

Don’t try to save me
Don’t try to save me
For I come here of my own will
Here I will stay

On the inside children play, trying not to remember that they have grown
Eyes staring at me. Move with me motion for motion
Until I turn, I spin in circles, reaching I am for the door

Don’t try to save me
Don’t try to save me
For I built this house with my hands
Here I will stay
Track Name: The World Inside II
Reach out your hand grab the penny
A surface war yields shallow rewards
Clench your fist make your demands
But you are conquering the wrong enemy

Alone you lie naked and bare
Conscience a mirror
You steal from your soul to feed your ego
Outside you’re a hero

But alone you lie
In the world inside
Alone you lie
In the world inside

God of material villain of spirit
The fortress you build you must live in
Betrayal of trust faith and allegiance
You fool everyone but yourself

Alone you lie naked and bare
Conscience a mirror
You steal from your soul to feed your ego
Outside you’re a hero

But alone you lie
In the world inside
Alone you lie
In the world inside
Track Name: My Skin
I see forest, stars in the sky at night
I am dreaming, I dream as a child
When I was allowed
When all was simple
When nothing could penetrate my skin

I see youth, when frowns were stranger then smiles
Unworn faces full of life, not worry
I long to return, I want to still wonder
I want nothing to penetrate my skin

We were younger then
Each day that came, more we would grow
But we are older now
And each day that comes takes more of my life away

Unscramble this whirlwind of thought in my head
Competition forced into deceit that trusting allows
Rid me this struggle
Let me grow, in a world of childhood innocence
Where nothing can penetrate my skin

We were younger then
Each day that came, the more we would grow
But we are older now
And each day that comes takes more of my life away

I can’t explain all the love I’ve had in my life
And how sometimes I couldn’t feel it for picturing it gone
Love rescue me now
Hold me tight so that I never forget
And nothing can penetrate my skin
Track Name: Tears
See the pictures on the wall, the glory of the faces
Who never understood at all, the power of the moment
Or where the moment could lead
When the power starts to fade, weak, we start to tremble
It becomes an avalanche
We are overtaken by a feeling burning to get out

Our tears - There is nothing we can do to dry them

A starry sky tonight could turn to storm tomorrow
If it does we must be brave, we must live through it
Fear only kills if we allow
But the power of my love reaches farther then my touch
And it is more real than any trick your mind can play
And any trick I’ve been the victim of

Our tears - There is nothing we can do to dry them

If only I could carry you away
If we really were all we need
We’d have to create another place that no one else has ever been
If only I could learn how to love as strong as the pain I feel
I could dry our tears

There is writing on the wall. I know because I wrote it
Says It’s ok to dream, and it’s alright to promise.
Just don’t promise what you dream.

Our tears - There is nothing we can do to dry them
Track Name: Look Into A Stranger's Eyes
There you are. Standing on a stack of your thoughts
Alone once more staring at a lifeless body
Wondering aloud, Am I so blind, not to see it coming?
Answered inside by the simple dropping of your head

Look into a stranger’s eyes
Fall into his trap
Curious and intrigued
Led down his wicked path of deception

Living a lie the hole keeps getting deeper
See the shapeless form where a man once threatened to grow
See the shell of love where eternity
Surely could have blossomed
In a pile of past lessons, never to be learned

Look into a strangers eyes
Fall into his trap
Curious and intrigued
Led down his wicked path of deception

Temptation’s claws make a powerful man weak
A coward reasons
Name another who would be so strong
You mistake a tomb for a castle
The dead weight of sand for gold
And a smile for a moment
A fleeting moment can erase your greatest fear

Look into a strangers eyes
Fall into his trap
Curious and intrigued
Led down his wicked path of deception
Track Name: Winter's Life
The leaves have gone brown, fallen to the ground
The mist that wets my face will surely freeze by sundown
As sure as winter comes, it drags with it its sadness
Another year gone by. One less left to live

I have often spent Christmas searching for reasons
That I never found. I never dreamed I would

But all has changed - I feel a new heartbeat
In your eyes I’ll always see winter’s life

You are the warmth I feel through the coldest December
The single ray of sun that shines on a cloudy day
You are the proof that heaven answers
The fire to warm my freezing hands
And the color on the grayest of days

All has changed - I feel a new heartbeat
In your eyes I’ll always see winter’s life

Love rain down on me. Erase the weight of the world
Climb upon my shoulder. You are the weight of my world

I’ll suffer the wind . And with each shiver remember
Winter is not the end, only a reminder
That a brilliant day is on the horizon
And as each year goes by so builds my treasure of love

All has changed - I feel a new heartbeat
In your eyes I’ll always see winter’s life
Track Name: Facination And Fear
In stillness so much motion inside
In silence within I hold a deafening cry
My needs can never be satisfied
For my love will never be realized

I can almost feel your heart beating
See confusion in eyes so clear
The line between fascination and fear

I battle a thought every second
For I don’t feel as I was taught
I want to swim the river forbidden
I want to climb the mountain denied

I can almost feel your heart beating
See confusion in eyes so clear
The line between fascination dnd fear

My needs can never be satisfied
For my love will never be realized

I can almost feel your heart beating
See confusion in eyes so clear
The line between fascination and fear
Track Name: A Million Years
Push a pin into my arm. I will bleed like anyone
Pull it out and I forget
On a trail blazed with words. One that I was lost upon
The road that I depended on, I follow no more

Tortured man take your hand, take it from the fire now
Place it in cool water
A hypocrite is one who prays only when he feels pain
It’s time to open your eyes. So open your eyes

I could wait a million years, look into a billion eyes
To find another love like this
I could wait a million years

The slamming door the unseen wall
The hurt I never could forget, I struggle to remember
And take my hand from the fire refusing all intended scars
You are cool water. Into you, I swim

I could wait a million years, look into a billion eyes
To find another love like this
I could wait a million years

Held still in one place for too long
Gone blind to the miracle of saving
I pray this angel in my eyes was put here to save my life

Through your eyes I feel your soul
What I feel I must believe
What I believe I live
This coming from a man who clenched the truth so tight in his hands.
Then opened to find evil
Found trusting love again

I could wait a million years, look into a billion eyes
To find another love like this
I could wait a million years
Track Name: Color Me Red
I often drift away far into another day
I answer questions complete the rhyme
Relive the beauty of another time
It’s the calm before the storm

Color me red because I’m on fire
Direct me to a raging sun
Color me red because I’m on fire

Time can’t heal every wound
What seems faded returns soon
Memory strikes in its wicked way
Hatred devours the pleasure of a new day
It’s the calm before the storm

Color me red because I’m on fire
Direct me to a raging sun
Color me red because I’m on fire

The fire burns from what remains
Of all my ignored fear
And I’ll burn until only ashes remain
I welcome the first wind to come

Color me red because I’m on fire
Direct me to a raging sun
Color me red because I’m on fire
Track Name: Father Sing
I am a child, but I am growing, changing
Training my thoughts to be
I am the seed encouraged to dream
And nourished with food from your heart

I want your love. I want to know who you hate and why
I want everything good and bad. All of you, inside me

Father sing
The song that still makes me cry from years ago
When you sang to a little girl
You sing to me still
With a voice so loud and strong
Father though you are gone
You remain with me

You protect me, you make me aware
That the love inside these walls won’t always exist outside
My symbol of strength all powerful in my life disappeared
And I cried

But I remember the first music I ever knew
I hear your voice. I feel you here

Father sing
The song that still makes me cry from years ago
When you sang to a little girl
You sing to me still
With a voice so loud and strong
Father though you are gone
You remain with me
Track Name: The Sound Of The Rain
Is that starlight shining in your eyes
Or is your heart on fire again
I have felt the flames until immune I’ve become
Disillusioned by love
Inescapable fate

I know it’s coming, I’ll be waiting
I hear the sound of the rain

An angels face
Fragile emotions fights monsters
Made from fairy tale tales
So delicate tender with strength unexplored
Well this dragon’s been slayed again and again

I know it’s coming I’ll be waiting
I hear the sound of the rain

So through every season
The devil grows stronger
Until smolder he does
When the rain comes again
Until smolder he does
When the rain comes again

I know it’s coming, I’ll be waiting
I hear the sound of the rain
Track Name: Voices
Innocent, afraid
Thoughts create an adult play
Too scared to cry, walk on by
Penetrating eyes seem to see all, witness a lie
Resist command, walk on by
I will never take my life

Mother’s only son, behind a mask a world unknown
That speaks to him, walk on by
I am so sad says the voice inside his head
In a familiar voice, walk on by
I will never take my life

Accept no blame if I give in
The boundaries of my mind
Reach farther then you see

Sometimes it’s so loud, It is so clear what I hear
Is what I feel, walk on by
What defines strength, accepting life or choosing to die
What do the strong decide, I walk on by
I will never take my life
Track Name: Fading Away
I can't tell what is right, what is wrong
What is far, what is near
Can't distinguish between truth, lies I fear

I am fading
Fading away

I can't find my strength
I really don't cherish the search anymore
I'm left without breath from making points I won't make anymore

I am fading
Fading away

I feel no need to borrow the crutches I borrowed before
Or to make another speech whose theme justifies what I am

I am fading
Fading away

I can't take the guilt - I feel like a thief when compared to my father
He fed me then, he feeds me still
What have I ever done

I am fading
Fading away
Track Name: Times Square
In a tired part of the city
Hiding from the fast talk
Watch 'Don't walk' to 'Walk'
Easy when you're dreaming
Staring at the movies
Standing in a circle,
Laughing at the wrong time.

If alcohol could take me there.
I'd take a shot a minute
And be there by the hour.

Take a walk around Times Square
With a pistol in my suitcase
And my eyes on the TV.

In a car taking a back seat
Staring out the window
Thinking about danger.
Playing in a wrong world
Fighting €" but I'm not free.
Talking on the telephone
Talking about you and me.

If Jesus Christ could take me here
I'd fall dawn on my knees,
Have no questions to His answers.

Take a walk around Times Square
With a pistol in my suitcase
And my eyes on the TV.

Alcohol could take me there.
I'd take a shot a minute
And be there by the hour.

Take a walk around Times Square
With a pistol in my suitcase
And my eyes on the TV.

And if I die gaining my senses
Wake up in a hotel
Staring at the ceiling.
