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 cant 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
Its not what I’m used to saying

Ive been running 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 show restraint, that’s something ill never know
I feel young but I’m afraid to die

Grating away at the unchangeable, just another wasted day
Hope lies in duties waiting call, you better pull your weight

Running through a tangled mess in mexico
And I’m asking why the show isn’t in stereo
While acid helps alleviate the visible
It’s time you met your craving

Ive been running 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 show restraint, that’s something ill never know
I feel young but I’m afraid to die
Track Name: Downfall
It’ll be my downfall
Don’t try and save me
In the mountains waiting
Forming diamonds
When you see the 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 but stay lean
You can find your

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

Summertime in your arms
But I’m still freezing
Didn’t you believe that fate surrounds us
In a reckless downpour
I feel you near me
It felt so easy
Please come be my

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

Time will open your eyes you’ll see the place it leads
Wait, you’re fighting away, fighting against what’s coming

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 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
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: I Belong To You
I belong to you
My broken home has much to do
With all of the pain I have it’s true
Needles aside I’ve 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 lose
In my ascension
There’s 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 lose
In my ascension
There’s still no mention of you
