Track Name: Under The Sun
So I guess you know my story. Yeah, you've heard it all before. See, I've always been too honest for my own good. There's no mystery anymore. I'm such a bore. So now what? My head is spinning cuz I want to tell you the truth. Well, guess what? I've grown up. Now I refuse to offer anything that you could use against me. I'll just hold my tongue. I'm so done. I'm not gonna speak to any one under the sun. Do you want to know my secret? Yeah, I bet you really do. Well, you have to keep on wanting for eternity. I ain't giving out no clues. So now what? My head is spinning cuz I want to tell you the truth. Well, guess what? I've grown up. Now I refuse to offer anything that you could use against me. I'll just hold my tongue. I'm so done. I'm not gonna speak to any one under the sun. I'll keep them guessing, always wanting more. Closing my blinds while I'm shutting my door. Am I just crazy? Have I gone too far? Is it so bad if they know who you are? Is it so bad if they know you better? Is it that bad? Still I refuse to offer any thing that you can use against me. I'll just hold my tongue. I'm so done. I'm not gonna speak to any one under the sun.
Track Name: Said & Done
I need a change of pace. Just a little distraction here and there to get my head in the right place. I think I'll take your advice. What could be wrong with making just one little sacrifice? So here we are torn apart. But I'm gonna keep my fingers crossed. You never know where this could go. So stay a while and make me smile. And when it's all said and done, I'm not much further from square one. Can't get you out of my head. Now I'm not sleeping well because I'm up thinking about everything you said. I think I'm reading too much. Into a situation that I shouldn't even touch. So here we are torn apart. But I'm gonna keep my fingers crossed. You never know where this could go. So stay a while and make me smile. And when it's all said and done, I'm not much further from square one. No fun. We're just wasting time. We both know what's really on our minds. Let's get one thing clear. I'm staying right here. So dry all your tears.
Track Name: Coming To My Senses
Maybe I'll just pretend that my heart wont haunt me 'till the bitter end. Some people may think I'm dumb. But I'll do whatever it takes so as not to succumb. No worries I'll be fine. You'll get yours and I will get mine. He's breaking my defenses. But I'm coming to my senses. How can you get me to come when my heart keeps swinging like a pendulum? Maybe I'm just feeling old. But the hand I've been grasping is not mine to hold. No worries I'll be fine. You'll get yours and I will get mine. He's breaking my defenses. But I'm coming to my senses. I can't help but frown. But you hep turn my frown upside down. Now I can't help but smile. Make me laugh in your typical style. Just stay a while. Just one more mile.
Track Name: Don't Shoot The Messenger
Nothings ever set in stone. Why can't you see? I failed to read the writing on the wall. Why not turn the tables so your friends can be the ones deciding you're not worth it after all? Oh, don't mind me. I back down rather easily. Spread the word. People are so absurd. Have you heard the news from yesterday? No escape. There will be hell to pay. So please don't shoot the messenger. Cuz I surrender. I'm not one for casting stones inside my home. Especially when it is made of glass. Once I step outside, I leave my comfort zone. Where personalities are prone to clash. Oh, don't mind me. I lash out rather viciously. Spread the word. People are so absurd. Have you heard the news from yesterday? No escape. There will be hell to pay. So please don't shoot the messenger. Cuz I surrender. You might just want to step lightly and watch your self. I had no choice. I'm forced to be the harbinger of doom for you and all your so-called friends. It's easy to pretend that anything is set in stone. Why can't you see? I failed to read the writing on the wall.
Track Name: Nothing Special
Each day and every hour are lives are on the run. Each year just like a flower blooms then withers underneath our sun. One by one. Today is nothing special. Find an excuse to just lay around. And when you've consumed your full share let's get set to do it again. This crazy world we all call home. It's bursting at the seems. There's not much we can do but hold our breath so no one hears us scream. So it seems today is nothing special. Find an excuse to just lay around. And when you've consumed your full share let's get set to do it again.
Track Name: Get Set Ready Go
I'm weighed down by your monumental frown. Patiently confined to your solitary mind. Nothings holding you back. Why not go in for the kill? I know you will. Get set, ready go. I don't know anyone so shameless, so heartless as you. So let's all stand our ground. And no more excuses for not putting your foot through the door, knock it down. One down. Star another war. Two down. Killing spree. Three down. Do what you want with me. I'm down. Don't fret. He wont forget. You're going down with the rest. Saving the last for best. Get set, ready go. I don't know anyone so shameless, so heartless as you. So let's all stand our ground. And no more excuses for not putting your foot through the door, knock it down. It's not fair. Can the whole world hitch a ride on your shoulders. It's not right. But its not for you and me to settle this fight. Well, some will run and hide when the stars fall from the sky. I need you by my side holding my hand through the night. I need you by my side waking me up when the time's right. They will know you're not messing around.
Track Name: Clarity
I found clarity back home. Its so plain to see. I left the forest now I can see the trees. So please don't leave. Take it from me. I have seen and I know I have been here before. So hold my hand. I have a plan to return with grace. Take my place at your door once more. I found clarity in you. It's so plain to see. And now our apples have fallen from our tree. So please don't leave. Take it from me. I have seen and I know I have been here before. So hold my hand. I have a plan to return with grace. Take my place at your door once more.
Track Name: White Picket Fence
It all seemed so darn easy before. Well our turn has come to pass. We had a nice run. Fortune then shame. Where's my white picket fence my dear? It burned down with everything else I fear. Let's push reset and play once more. And if this time opportunity knocks, I'll get the door. It's not our year. Or maybe it's not even our decade either we'll see. Life's kind of funny. In an evil, sarcastic way. No one's laughing over here. Where's my white picket fence my dear? It burned down with everything else I fear. Let's push reset and play once more. And if this time opportunity knocks, I'll get the door. Please believe. Please believe in me.
