Heal 04:40
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)
2.
Used To 03:37
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)
3.
Madeline 03:59
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)
4.
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...

Potential 05:00
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

Over The Top 04:26
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?
7.
Stuck 05:48
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)
8.
Take Me Back 04:18
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

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)
