Track Name: Its In The Pain We Grow
so write down all the things you never thought you'd say
and put 'em in a box and send them far away
cos' they aren't doing any good for us you see?
to use them on each other oh so spitefully

missing pieces never seem to find their way
to puzzles left unfinished for another day
it means more to you to push it down inside
than to let it go and leave the darkness to the night

and no matter where you turn, theres an emptiness that screams inside
despite of what you hear, there's no truth residing in these lies
and in the end you know, its in the pain we grow, its in the pain we grow

so leave your pessimisms for another day
your sadness overstayed its welcome anyway
i need the fire burning back inside your eyes
cos' your the morning where all of my dreams arise

and no matter where you turn, theres an amptiness that screams inside
despite of what you hear, there's no truth residing in these lies
and in the end you know, its in the pain we grow, its in the pain we grow
Track Name: Turn It Around
caught up in your trances
lost from the start
and Ive wasted my chances
but I followed my heart

and the leaves on the trees they are falling
falling to the ground
and the ghosts of my past they are calling
such a deafening sound, they sing...

you're stuck in my mind
I'm lost in the fray
my heart in rewind
the past you'll stay

and the leaves on the trees they are changing
changing to gold and brown
and they say that the past is for learning
but I just can't turn it around, I sing...
Track Name: The Controller
I've been thinking about the past
for far too long now
and the reasons that we didn't last
to put in a song

and you gave up the right to explain
or state your case
when you left me for all of the lies
you threw in my face

did you know
you're the answer to all that controls me?
inside
you're the cancer thats taken ahold of me
and I'd
rather have you than any air to breathe
now its over, its all it could ever be...

i've been praying for some kind of peace
for far too long now
so drinking becomes my release
my right to your wrong

we gave in to voices inside
despite what we said
so let this forever resound
inside our heads
Track Name: Wandering Souls
so far I've run now
from all that I call home
handshakes and smiles
can't take your place in my heart

dead ends and lamp posts
street signs are all I know
lost heart, a lost soul
so many things I don't show, I don't show

so when sleep finds me
I'll just give in to its hold
lately the only
sweet escape that i have known

when I'm awake
I'm dreaming of places I know
its all there waiting
waiting til' I've had enough, and come home

what wandering souls we are
when the ending takes us to the start
oh how it shows when I'm all alone
all I want is home

driving forever
sleeping outside in the cold
thats when I'm wishing
I wasn't missing so much

faces are fading
fading into the dark
my arms are reaching
reaching for something to hold, now I know
Track Name: Fragile
Searching signals in the sky
Asking them to tell us who we are
Cosmic images aside
We're all longing for a purpose in our lives


Pushing numbers into place
Digging trenches all across our face
But we don't have to follow suit
We don't have to follow lines that have been traced


Fragile we are
Broken from the start
Forgetting who we are
Fragile we are
Broken from the start...


Standing naked in the cold
Warm our bodies with the lies we told
All alone, All alone...


Fragile we are
Broken from the start
Forgetting who we are
Fragile we are
Broken from the start... (x2)
