Track Name: No Regrets
Have you ever felt like a leaf sittin' on the ground
Just waiting for the wind to blow?
You are warmed by the sun,
You are wet from the rain,
You are buried by the thick white snow.
And the whole world is watchin'
While you watch your stop sign,
And everyone else is on go.
You let the people that surround you
Dig a hole where they found you,
And bury the good in your soul.

And no regrets tonight,
It's time that we take flight.

I've got a deadly disease,
And it comes down to me,
In fact I mean what I say very literally:
I'm self-centered, self-focused,
Selfish, and self-conscious
Bout the way you percieve me
On the every daily basis.
Till the self that's inside me commits suicide,
And the lies that confine me have truth realized.
I'll leave the hole in my soul empty for you.
I'll leave the hole in my sould empty for you--

And no regrets tonight,
It's time that we take flight

I'm exhausted now;
So much holding me down around my knees.
Would you come and carry me home?
Would you come and carry me home?

No regrets tonight,
It's time that we take flight
Track Name: Treading Water
I sat beside the road with my engine smokin’ and my plans on hold,
But no one stopped to call—I guess life’s too busy when you have it all.
But things were simple then, cause my life kept callin’ but I wasn’t in.
And then there came a day I was in too deep to up and walk away.

It’s all much clearer now: I never lied or cheated till you taught me how.
If I went back in time I would’ve locked my doors and gone to shut the blinds.
So how’d it come to this, I’d drive across the country just to taste your lips.
I tried to give you up, but I’m too addicted to let go enough.

You’re still keepin’ score, but I’ve stopped counting,
You’re treading water while you watch me drowning.
I keep on sinkin’ under all this baggage,
Why can’t we let it go and see what happens?

Well in the end I found, I did a great job leavin’ till my car broke down.
As if that weren’t enough I had to sit here waiting till you picked me up…

You’re still keepin’ score, but I’ve stopped counting,
You’re treading water while you watch me drowning.
I keep on sinkin’ under all this baggage,
Why can’t we let it go and see what happens?
(Repeat)
Track Name: Keep a Secret
I’ll tell you everything I’ll be your puppet tied to string.
There’s small revenge in words, but words are all I have to sing.
I hope you’ll trust me now these sweat-drops dripping down
my brow show how hard it is to hide a secret buried deep
inside.

Come out—
I can’t you know I’ve tried you have to tell me what’s inside…
These fights you know wouldn’t last so long if I was only in the
wrong—

I’ll give you anything just please don’t break my secret ring.
You say you love me so there might be some things you should
know: a secret may be kept by three as long as two are dead you see.
Will you keep a secret?

Come out—
I can’t you know I’ve tried you have to tell me what’s inside…
These fights you know wouldn’t last so long if I was only in the
wrong—

I’ll give you anything just please don’t break my secret ring.
You say you love me so there might be some things you should
know: a secret may be kept by three as long as two are dead you see.
Will you keep a secret?

I’ll give you anything just please don’t break my secret ring.
You say you love me so there might be some things you should
know: a secret may be kept by three as long as two are dead you see.
Will you keep my secret?
Track Name: Live
Yesterday is when I woke up from a dream I thought
My mind in disbelief it fought for what was truth was not.

Some say dreams are lost with their first fallen step because
They're influenced by memories, those hopeless thoughts and
Tragedies will sometimes cloud your mind--painted gray.

And it's time to live, it's time to live life:
I'm coming down, I'm coming down for air.
I've been playing with the stars too long,
I've been playing with the starts too long.

Colors overwhelm my senses painting fences
Strung around my head; it's time to let them go.

People say that dreams are for the weak and for shallow sleep,
It's time to recognize the lies from one's who shed their live's disguise
And step into the light.

And it's time to live, it's time to live life:
I'm coming down, I'm coming down for air.
I've been playing with the stars too long,
I've been playing with the starts too long.

Dreams aren't much without ambition:
Tear it all down, tear it all down.
Take my past to demolition:
Build it all again, build it all again, build it all again.

Cause it's time to live, it's time to live life:
I'm coming down, I'm coming down.
I've been playing with the stars too long,
I'm coming down, I'm coming down.
I've been playing with the stars too long,
I've been playing with the stars too long.
Track Name: Johnnie Walker Blues
Johnnie bets his luck on clovers and rabbit’s feet,
But she never does him right.
He’s just another deadbeat walkin’ down a dead end street,
Another moth drawn towards the light.

And as he sleeps his life plays in reverse.
So when he wakes his tabs are reimbursed.

He gets up out of bed and brews himself a cup or two,
So he can do it all again.
He’s the kinda guy who cleans up well by half past noon,
Like a snake who’s shed his skin.

And as he walks he smiles careless and free,
But every night his mind goes out to sea.

Johnnie hit the town but it only up and hit him back,
And his vision fades to black.
It seems like only time will tell if he will ever come back,
Cause his mind’s knocked off its track.

And as he sleeps his life plays in reverse.
So all his crimes and debts are reimbursed.

Or so it goes…
Track Name: A Stitch in Time
I’ve heard them say a stitch in time saves nine,
But life’s not always like the nursery rhymes.
Seems everywhere I go I’ve come too late,
Like seconds on a clock that can’t see straight—

We navigate these same old tired seas
Like pirates who are fed too frequently.
The ebb and flow of life lulls us to sleep,
While terra incognita’s in our reach—

Don’t stop me now cause I won’t wait, won’t hesitate
To break these ties that bind my feet and blind my eyes.
What does it take, to be free?

Would you believe all roads lead back to Rome?
To ancient coliseums set in stone.
Where all the worlds a stage and life’s a game,
To win or lose the outcome’s still the same—

Don’t stop me now cause I won’t wait, won’t hesitate
To break these ties that bind my feet and blind my eyes.
What does it take, to be free?

Whenever you feel luck is far from sight,
Remember it can pass like ships at night.
Just try to keep the wind upon your back,
And always nail your colours to the mast—

Don’t stop me now cause I won’t wait, won’t hesitate
To break these ties that bind my feet and blind my eyes.
What does it take, to be free?
Track Name: Sinking
Others smile at her anguish, the pain she feels is real.
The colors of good are fading fast; the colors of dark revealed.

And I am sinking into the earth.
And I am searching for something of worth.

And I can't see who I'm supposed to be,
And I can't think till I am free.

I stand alone in the rainfall, fingers crossed eyes closed.
Wishing for much better, these higher standards dethroned.

And I am sinking into the earth.
And I am searching for something of worth.

And I can't see who I'm supposed to be,
And I can't think till I am free.

Will I stay enclosed in peace, will my sanity come clean?
Can I know the outcome of all?
If I did what would that be?

And I am sinking into the earth.
And I am searching for something of worth.

And I am sinking into the earth.
And I am searching for something of worth.

And I can't see who I'm supposed to be,
And I can't think till I am free.
Track Name: A Castle Without Corners
I’ve dreamt my life away,
But I can’t sleep—no I can’t sleep.
And I’ve found the price you pay,
For stealing sheep, they don’t come cheap.

I’ve built my castle without corners
And I’m locked away.
I couldn’t leave here if I tried.

Think of that lady fair,
She lived atop the tower Shalott.
Wrapped in her golden hair,
Her body rots—she’s been forgot.

But I’ve built my castle without corners
And I’m locked away.
I couldn’t leave here if I tried.
I’m sick of shadows and my mirror’s
Cracked from side to side,
I’ll never make it out alive.

And I’ll just float away.
Just let me float away.
Track Name: Beauty in Time
We walk hand in hand on darkened roads,
We light up the night, but it never shows.
This hidden love's been put on hold,
And this next year will be so cold.

And there are no sunny springs, without the fall.
There are no heroes that were never small.
There are no butterflies with no cocoon,
And no love in roses without the bloom.

Hearts dripping sweat, it's been put to the test.
It's time she say's to give it a rest.
Like a caterpillar in a cocoon:
My heart will bloom, our hearts will bloom,
My love will bloom, Our love will bloom.

Patience sculpts beauty in time.
Patience sculpts beauty in time.
Patience sculpts beauty in time,
In time cause:

There are no heroes that were never small.
There are no butterflies with no cocoon,
And no love in roses without the bloom.
Track Name: Endless Love
Broken trees dance to the rhythm of the wind,
The tires spinning round to the motion of the ground.
And the earth turns upside down; I fall to the ceiling,
And wake up in another town.

Endless love, come find me
Endless love, endless love
Find me find me

Raindrops fall on colliding lips.
His mind's only focus is this simple kiss:
His fingers are shaking, his heartbeat is racing,
His brain's only thinking about the beginning
Of something he hopes is endless.

Endless love, come find me
Endless love, endless love
Find me find me

When she prays she prays for one like him,
And when he sleeps he dreams of one like her.
When she prays she prays for one like him,
And when he sleeps he dreams of one like her.

Let's bring this ghostlike love to life
Let's bring this ghostlike love to life
Let's bring this ghostlike love to life
Let''s bring this ghostlike love, love,
To life, to life, to life
