Track Name: Heal
One more time, I feel
Might be what it takes to heal
This time I will find
What I have to make things right

I'm breaking down the walls
within my mind
And praying for the strength
that isn't mine
I weary of this circumstance
I let my heart grow cold
I'm buried underneath a heavy stone

-CHORUS-
Heal me! (I feel so diseased)
I try to talk but I can't speak.
Reach me! (Come pick me up again)
Sometimes it seems your mystery
a cosmic game of hide and seek

Bring me to my knees
As I beg for liberty
When I truly live
Will I have the strength to give?

I'm breaking down the walls
within my mind
And praying for the strength
that isn't mine
I weary of this starless sky
I shudder from this cold
You pull me from beneath this heavy stone

(CHORUS)

-BRIDGE-
Seeking treasure in the dark
(I stumble aimlessly)
You come bringing brilliant fire
and give me what I truly need

(CHORUS)
Track Name: Used To
Psychedelic lightshow on my monitor
Constant mental wanderings that want
so much to land
Used to have a place to hang these dreams
to be
A peg of hope for,
though nailed in with fear upon the door

Oh, where can I go?
I never had a place to call home
And what should I be?
I can't even breathe
And now it's time to stand and be free

-CHORUS-
Well, I used to think these dreams
could fly
And I'm starting again
Cause I won't be locked inside here anymore
And I'm counting on myself this time
Cause you left me before
And I won't be locked inside

Searching for the clarity I'd like to know
Build some sort of structure
out of anything I know
Used to think I'd never find my happiness
Now I know that this season too,
like all the rest, shall pass

Oh, where can I go?
I never had a place to call home
And what should I be?
I can't even breathe
And now it's time to stand and be free

Things can get lonely now
But hey, I've got to break free somehow

(CHORUS)
Track Name: Madeline
What do you want from me,
Madeline?
There's nothing I have not already
gave you
I just don't understand you woman
You seem to like it better
when I treat you bad

I give you my heart
and you run me through
Give you my life
Then I turn my back,
give you a verbal slap
You would think it was an
aphrodisiac

-CHORUS-
Madeline - you're drivin' me
mad again
Madeline - come out of the
shallow end

Do the things you do
make sense to you?
Are they by design?
And do the things I say
make sense anyways?
Are we just playin' games or
simply wasting time?

-BRIDGE-
Madeline, you've lost me again
Do you think that we can just
be friends?
But I've lost so many of those
And that won't work here,
we both know

(CHORUS)
Track Name: Long Lost Child
I am a long lost child
Won't you take me by the hand?
Lead me on to a better place
far from here...

I am lost and lonely
I am sore and bruised
Somebody come and love me
Make it go away

I don't know what I've done
to deserve this
I can't remember what it was
But daddy he sure don't love me
And momma don't care

Sometimes I watch the other
children passing by
And I wonder, does your daddy
hurt you too?

And at times there's no escapin'
The evil ways they try to put their hands
upon you
But don't you believe that there will
never be a better day
Cause you are better than them
So hold on, hang onto freedom

-CHORUS-
Long lost child I love you.
Don't you be ashamed.
It is not your fault that pleasure comes in pain.

Long lost child you matter.
Don't believe their lies.
Someday you will conquer and arise.


I am a long lost child
Hoping for a better day
Just looking for something to make me
feel okay

I am an angry child
Hiding in the corridor
Somebody come and save me
Make him go away...
Track Name: Potential
Wake up in the afternoon
Swallow all my vitamins
Grab a cup of coffee
and I'm there

Turn my computer on
I sit there 'til the break of dawn
Try to make a dollar just to
pay my bills

Once again I realize
This is not where I reside
Knowing's half the battle
so I'll get there
I am too determined just
to sit and bite the living dust
And leave all my potential
to the enemy

-CHORUS-
This is a battle, this is a war (x3)
Don't you forget it
This is a battle, this is a war (x3)
Don't let it suck you down

This spinning globe will spit you out
Of this I'm sure, I have no doubt
You gotta meet the day with true ambition

Plant your feet upon that road
Don't stop walkin' 'til your home
Fix your gaze and don't you hesitate

It doesn't matter what they say
Cause they don't know what's in your head
And you gotta keep on movin' when they leave you
Track Name: Over The Top
This is it
I won't be coming back this way
Take my hand
Unless you want to stay

Like a plant,
I've overgrown this pot I'm in
It's time to go
This ice is getting thin

-CHORUS-
Come with me
I'm going over the top
You know we cannot be stopped
When there's a way out
Don't look back
We've got no time to kill
As long as you've got the will
I'll take you over, over the top


Waiting for the day
When everything falls into place
That could take forever
And tomorrow's far too late

Look up here
This is our last chance to move
I'm leaving now
Will you stay or go, now it's time to choose

(CHORUS)

-BRIDGE-
Do or die
Don't you want to fly away?
Now's the time
Won't you come with me today?
Track Name: Stuck
I am so aware of you
It builds, erupts and runs me through
I won't let you see the way
You pull my mind into a fray

Cause I've been there before
Knocking on the outer door
I ain't walking home no more
In the cold and the rain
Brandishing my pain

Touch some switch within my soul
I must let go of this I know
Danger lurks inside your skin
I will not stop to let you in

Cause I've been there before
Knocking on the outer door
I ain't walking home no more
In the cold and the rain
Brandishing my pain

-CHORUS-
Stuck inside my delusion
Stuck, but I know it's illusion
And I hate feeling this way
When emotion leads me astray


On my own and doin' fine
You come along and blow my mind
But these differences I see
Enough to separate - you and me

Cause I've been there before
Knocking on the outer door
I ain't walking home no more
In the cold and the rain
Brandishing my pain

(CHORUS)
Track Name: Take Me Back
It was nice
Ridin' along on my bike as a little child
It makes me sigh
my oh my
Boy, did the time just fly

Tried to solve a mystery
Back behind the elementary
Didn't even know it was a game,
How I wished it wasn't just another game

Where does the time go?
Like a broken kite string it
wants to fly away
Drift beyond the clouds forever
Makes me sigh
my oh my

Playin' at the ballpark
Swimming at the Y
Find a perfect tree
and I would climb so high

Sittin' in the sandbox
I wanna go back to
The innocent times
No reason or rhyme

-CHORUS-
Take me back to the innocent times
I want to go back for just one day
but I can't so I hope and I pray
Maybe when I get upstairs

Track Name: Along The Way
All along the way we gave up
what we found
Left it here and there like
leaves upon the ground

All along the way we learned
how not to give
We wander aimlessly and
we never really live

-BRIDGE-
You know it's true, baby
We've got to find our love anew

-CHORUS-
You've got to give it up
babe, to be with me
So I can take it all
and pour it back on you
All these lies we've learned
have never got us anywhere but lost
And now we've got to find
our way home


Somewhere on the way
your heart began to feel
Trapped in your career
The woman made of steel

Somewhere on the way
they told me not to see
That you would ever need
the things a man should be

Ooh, we've lost our way
You know it's true, baby
We've got to find our love anew

(CHORUS)
