Track Name: Ghost Stories
In the forest
Saw the lightning
Bolts and they were
Scared away
Its 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 its 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 its 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: Sailing Stones
I feel alive like none before, don’t break my fall
Sailing away blind of what’s in store
The sunds 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 suns 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
