Track Name: Ghost Stories
In the forest
Saw the lightning
Bolts and they were
Scared away
It's cataclysmic
This L.A violence
Holy roller
Hurricane
I hardly knew her
I tried to lose her
This forest seems to
Know my name
There’s no horizon
In this forest
Only violence takes the stage…

Turning and burning the apple falls so far from the tree
I cannot take it’s burning a flame inside of me
Turning and burning the apple falls so far from the tree
I cannot take it's burning a flame inside of me…

In the night I see things
The dreams that day bring
I crush myself and turn away
To complicate me
And make my soul think
That it’s alone in company
I hardly knew her
I couldn’t lose her
This forest seems to
Know my name
There’s no horizon
In this forest
Darkness blankets over me…

Turning and burning the apple falls so far from the tree
I cannot take it’s burning a flame inside of me
Turning and burning the apple falls so far from the tree
I cannot take it's burning a flame inside of me…

Track Name: Vanity
Vanity vanity…you’re stretching my insanity sanity
Ohh vanity vanity…you’re stretching my insanity sanity

Birds stand in line just a time I can suppose I’m close
The person that defines my allegiance to control the flow
Twisted stage lining Searching never finding
But we try again…

Vanity vanity…you’re stretching my insanity sanity

Ohh vanity vanity…you’re stretching my insanity sanity

Arrive just in time but you always miss the show, let go
When winter makes you cry by the by you’re all alone, you know
Cringing chastising
Feel my love dying
Here we go again…

Vanity vanity…you’re stretching my insanity sanity

Ohh vanity vanity…you’re stretching my insanity sanity

If I changed at all, it’s not exactly what I meant
I’ve got pain to solve, and it’s taking over me
If I missed the call, I never knew what I could give
I’ve got pain to solve, and it’s taking all my years

Vanity vanity…you’re stretching my insanity sanity

Ohh vanity vanity…you’re stretching my insanity sanity
Track Name: Tear Your Hate Apart
I was lying there that night
When your daddy fell and died
Everybody wept and cried
You just kept your hands with mine

Chorus

Nice to know I failed you again
I'm sinking, stumbling I don't know the way
Nice to know you'll all be OK
My only question
What remains of me?

Bless you perfect child
Your eyes brighten all our days and nights

Chorus

Nice to know I failed you again
I'm sinking, stumbling I don't know the way
Nice to know you'll all be OK
My only question
What remains of me?
Nice to know its all been a game that we keep on losing
Still i'll start again
Now I see my road has an end
With my painted army, yeah we'll march away

Bridge

Tear Your Hate Apart
Don't let it bury you
Go now far, far away
With wisdom and hope renewed
Tear Your Hate Apart
Don't let it bury you
Go now far, far away
I'll always believe in you

I'll always believe in you
Track Name: Pulse
Deep kick
Undercover
Buried in the seventh wonder
Always facing
Rainbow chasing oh
Its gone, I could be wrong

Cold pit
Scary lover
Soul lit the violent thunder
Never wasting
Time replacing oh
Its gone, move it along

Rip round
Make another
Solitude a major blunder
Devil styling
World defining role
My soul, will always be cold

When we run
We find sun
I don’t feel what’s real
In all the same old things

Class clown
Not another
Sad face whose life went under
We all know
The rules can bend and break
Away, think of the stakes

Heat stick
Burning under
Losing time but growin on ya
Shifting faces blur as time goes on
And on, isn’t it wrong

When we run
We find sun
I don’t feel what’s real
In all the same old things

Skin folder
Growing older
Makin’ way for young miss lola
We can wait
But she just can’t hold on
Too long, she might move on

Age old
Space lion
Listen close you’ll hear him crying
Even gods can feel it slip away
Today, is fading away

When we run
We find sun
I don’t feel what’s real
In all the same old things

You hide away
In a place you’ll never stay
Hide away
On your own…
Track Name: Alive For A Minute
Chasing away in a place where the light is all gone
Ride around it’s over now, the final seed isn’t old
Change me when I’m out of line
Bring your feelings to the floor this time, so we can finally end this

Aive for a Minute…

Wasting away in your hate, now you see that you’re wrong
White it out; just erase all the time that you owe
Leave things just where you found them
Safety feels just like a pain inside, I need to finally end this

If you smile keep it in mind that it feels as though we waited all the way
Let the sublime dissolve…

Crazy to stay with no mind no belief of where you belong
Ride around broken ground; stake a claim to the throne

Leave things just where you found them
Safety feels just like a pain inside

If you smile keep it in mind that it feels as though we waited all the way
Let the sublime dissolve…
If you smile keep it in mind that it feels as though we waited all the way
Let the sublime dissolve…
Track Name: Escaping Alcatraz
You’ll rust in here, or fly away
The days come and go again…
These hallowed walls, their shadow falls
The sun is meek he lets us wash away can you hear me say

Don’t let me wash away…

Speculate, infiltrate, Storm the gate, recreate this escape tonight
The moon is brightening the darkness
Emancipate, operate, a dying state, clean the slate for all our time
Let your soul breathe in the air

Don’t let me wash away…
Track Name: Sailing Stones
I feel alive like none before, don’t break my fall
Sailing away blind of what’s in store
The sun’s down time to roll the sound and let sanity take its toll

Going somewhere that I know is dry and forbidden
Is nothing that can make me wrong
Shaking fools and dodging rules make break your perception
If ignorance is where you fall

Days can melt away and feel the same
Just clear the stage…

I feel alive like none before, don’t break my fall
Sailing away blind of what’s in store
The sun’s down time to roll the sound and let sanity take its toll

Easy sins may slither in and hide for a minute
Before they see the light at all
By the time the good in you can make you a winner
I’m guessing that your chance is gone

Days can melt away and feel the same
Just clear the stage…

I feel alive like none before, don’t break my fall
Sailing away blind of what’s in store
The suns down time to roll the sound and let sanity take its toll
Track Name: Turn The People
Your teachings weigh me down I can relate,
And lately I’m convinced,
Please me take control I’m in your hands,
Arriving to my pain
Bleeding sacred sounds alleviate,
All my body’s strain,
Creep my way around a life of hate,
Maybe I’m too late

Time brings us down
To the ground,
But all I know
Is safe and sound,
Lost or found it’s all the same

And all the seas
Roll around
Turn the people
Upside down
See confusion tear away

Sooth me serenade the night away,
Just so I can feel,
Save me keep a place between your hands,
You’re all I ever had

Time brings us down
To the ground,
But all I know
Is safe and sound,
Lost or found it’s all the same

And all the seas
Roll around
Turn the people
Upside down
See confusion tear away
Track Name: Downfall
It’ll be my downfall; don’t try to save me,
Little mountains crazy for them diamonds,
When you see that crowd run, follow your daydreams
Your heart is waking, rising higher

Change, you’ll always see the change,

In a reckless downpour, feelin’ kinda hazy,
Supersonic phasing, lightning fire,
Double time but too far, from what the day means,
Muscle up and still lean, you can find your,

Change,
You’ll always see the change,
You’ll always see the change,
You’ll always see the change,

I the mighty thunder,
But I feel the shame,
Chase the reckless wonder,
But I know you’re for the game,

I know you’re for the game,
I know you’re for the game,
Track Name: Afraid To Die
Heading the same way as before,
Still clearing space,
It’s not the same game anymore,
I can read it off your face,

Why can’t we all just look at what’s indelible,
From ashes to ashes is what’s incredible,
Run hot don’t elevate it till its credible,
It’s not what I’m used to saying,

I’ve been runnin’ around but I feel no pain,
For anything, anymore,
Just to cause us to try to explain,
What’s all and what ever is,
Cryin’ alone you gotta’ feel restraint,
That’s something I’ll never know,
I feel young but I’m,
Afraid to die,

Grating away on the unchangeable,
Just another wasted day,
Hope lies in duties waiting call,
You better pull your weight,

Runnin’ through a tangled mess in Mexico,
And I’m askin’ why the show isn’t in stereo,
While acid helps alleviate the visible,
It’s time you met your craving,

I’ve been runnin’ around but I feel no pain,
For anything, anymore,
Just to cause us to try to explain,
What’s all and what ever is,
Cryin’ alone you gotta feel restraint,
That’s something I’ll never know,
I feel young but I’m,
Afraid to die,

I’ve been runnin’ around but I feel no pain,
For anything, anymore,
Just to cause us to try to explain,
What’s all and what ever is,
Cryin’ alone you gotta feel restraint,
That’s something I’ll never know,
I feel young but I’m,
Afraid to die,
Track Name: I Belong to You
I belong to you,
My broken home has much to do,
With all of the pain I have, its true,
Needles aside, have no place with you,

I still dream of a day, when I’m closer,
When I become all that I, can be,

In my surrender,
In all conception,
I still loose,
In my ascension,
This still no mention,
Of you,

Danger keeps me down,
I think I’m afraid ill sink or drown,
Before the lights go out,
Sing one last prayer with no fear, with no doubt,

I still dream of a day, when I’m closer,
When I become all that I, can be,

In my surrender,
In all conception,
I still loose,
In my ascension,
This still no mention,
Of you,

Ohhs (Fade Out)
Track Name: Sky And The Dark Night - Part 2 - Control
I'm lost in your head,
I'm trapped in your heart,
Wrapped in your veins,
And I just can't breathe,

I just can't breathe,
Just can't breathe,

I'm holding too tight,
I'm turning away,
I've waited this game,

I just can't breathe (just can't breathe)
I just can't breathe

I'm lost in your head,
I'm trapped in your heart,
I just can't breathe,

I just can't breathe
I just can't breathe
