Track Name: Would It Matter
This divine purpose that we seek
Well what do we expect to see
You are you and I am me
Its all I know

We fill our heads with all these doubts
Question what its all about
What do we intend to figure out
Well I don't know

The hourglass is on the table
The sand is sliding through
And I wonder if the time is really moving
Would it matter if I knew?

What happened to the simple smile
I think that it was lost somewhere
Do we have something sincere to say
Or now are we too lost to care

Chasing the good looks and the money
Will that keep your mind at ease
And don't you think it funny
That we seem to hard to please

The hourglass is on the table
The sand is sliding through
And i wonder if the time is really moving
Would it matter if I knew?

Would it matter if I knew?
Does it matter if I know?
Would it matter if I knew?
Track Name: Mistaken
Let me try and analyze
This situation that I've found myself in
Side of I can't seem to get away
From these same old tendencies
That dig me deeper everyday
And I'm in way over my head
As I sink into this bed
I wasn't looking to find dirt
Now it's on everything I own
And I'm full of all this hurt
Cause I know I should have known
But I told myself otherwise
I made myself believe it
My face must have been priceless
How I wish I could have seen it

Ignoring all my warnings
You ran straight to the man, I told you
You should stay away from
But ofcourse you couldn't do that

He took you for all you had
And though I do want to feel bad for you
It's true, you had it coming
It's time that you stopped covering the truth

I thought this was reality
But I must be mistaken
Cause I've lost sight of gravity
This logic makes no sense to me
I believed you when you said
We're all in this together
Turns out we're not birds of a feather
And you've flocked away from me
I guess its destiny that things
Turned out the way they did
But this is no future we dreamed of
When we were little kids
But I wont wish upon a star
And try and change the past
Acceptance can be hard
But denial never lasts

Ignoring all my warnings
You ran straight to the man, I told you
You should stay away from
But ofcourse you couldn't do that

He took you for all you had
And though I do want to feel bad for you
It's true, you had it coming
It's time that you stopped covering the truth

It's true you had it coming
You should've known you had it coming
You had to know you had it coming
Its true you had it coming
Stop covering the truth
Stop covering the truth
Track Name: Two Faced
Looking down a hole
To where the other end may go
It's killing me cause I just need to know

What side I'm on
And what side lies beyond my sight
Would I find my left is right, would the day turn into night

It just might
And I'm not sure if I would I stay
Or if I'd choose to live a different way

Its not very ordinary
But that dont mean it's wrong
We see the other side so strangly
Maybe we're the ones that don't belong

It comes back to you
Effects of all your impromptu
The meanings that were all made up, things that weren't explained enough

I know it's rough
Sittin on your throne of gold
Watching as the world gets old, seeing all your plans unfold

Its not very ordinary
But that dont mean it's wrong
We see the other side so strangly
Maybe we're the ones that don't belong
Maybe I'm wrong

Its not very ordinary
But that dont mean it's wrong
We see the other side so strangly
Maybe we're the ones that don't belong

Its not very ordinary
But that dont mean it's wrong
We see the other side so strangly
Maybe we're the ones that don't belong

Maybe I'm wrong
Track Name: Nowhere
I know Im a fool
I never gave myself the chance
I know Im a fool
A lover without a romance

And Im staring at the ceiling
Talking to myself
I've really got the feeling
That Ive got to get out
Of here

This room, this light
This place, tonight
I'm not here
I'm not there
I'm nowhere

I know Im a fool
Never did I leave my chair
I know Im a fool
But don't think that I didn't care

And Im staring at the ceiling
Talking to myself
I've really got the feeling
That Ive got to get out
Of here

This room, this light
This place, tonight
I'm not here
I'm not there
I'm nowhere
Track Name: Creases
My beds a little colder tonight
Clinging to my blankets so tight
Im hoping that the morning sunlight
Will make me want to fight, my tired eyes

Its not that Im not feeling alright
But it could be better sometimes
Looking at the creases in my hands
Can they really tell me who I am

Im in the midst of rearranging
I know that soon it all will change and
Im not sure where Ill be, Not sure where to go
Im not really sure, if I even want to know

Im finding peace in uncertainty
It keeps me from feeling lonely
Looking at the creases in my hands
Will they ever tell me who I am

And in the passing of time
We draw our different lines
Only to find
Our paths are intertwined
I'll close my eyes and count to ten
But theres no reason to pretend
I know we'll meet again
Theres no such thing as an end

My beds a little colder tonight
Clinging to my blankets so tight
I'm hoping that the morning sunlight
Will make me want to fight
My tired eyes
Fight my tired eyes
Track Name: Can't Say No
My patience is growing thin
Its balanced on an edge
With one more gust of wind
It all comes caving in

I'll waste my time again
I know how it ends
The result is all I can depend upon
I wont be your shoulder to lean on anymore

You can't say
I think I've had enough
You can't stay
You dont know when to stop
You can't say
Hey thats way too much
You cant say no
You dont know how

How can I trust you
How can I love you
When its all an illusion
A portrait of lies
I know what I must do
But I always give in to
The fake face you put on
Your clever disquise

I refuse to be your fool

You can't say
I think I've had enough
You can't stay
You dont know when to stop
You can't say
Hey thats way too much
You cant say no
You dont know how

You can't say
I think I've had enough
You can't stay
You dont know when to stop
You can't say
Hey thats way too much
You cant say no
You dont know how
Track Name: What Can I Say
I wont talk about it
Cause I dont feel like Ill get
The kind of answer
Im looking for

And it leaves me wanting more
Yea it leaves me wanting more
What can I say?

I wont think about it
Cause just the thought arouses
Vivid emotions
From my core

And it leaves me wanting more
Yea it leaves me wanting more
Yea it leaves me wanting more
What can I say?

And it seems to slip my mind
The truth I always find
I never seem to learn

And still I walk about it
Like I dont know that Ill get
The same old answers
I have before

And it leaves me wanting more
Yea it leaves me wanting more
Yea it leaves me wanting more
What can I say?
Track Name: Figured Out
So you think you've got me figured out
Well its time to throw a curveball
Cause I dont want anyone knowing all about me
I dont like leaving books wide open
For any strangers eyes to read

And all the things that I believe
To be the darker side of me
Hide beneath my face
But a trace of it escapes now from my eyes
And your staring straight into my soul
Judging every thought I own

Am I afraid to have it known
What I truly care about
Am I afraid to have it shown
What my whole life has been about

So you think you've got me figured out
Find out what I lie about
The truth that I pretend to never see
See how I waste all my time
Spending it all living in a dream
That I could never give a heartbeat
No pulse from this blood stream
Maybe the reason nothings moving
A mind too busy it forgot to breathe

Am I afraid to have it known
What I truly care about
Am I afraid to have it shown
What I really care about
Am I afraid to have it known
What my whole life has been about

So you think you've got me figured out
Well its time to throw a curveball
Cause I dont want anyone knowing all about me
I dont leave my life wide open
Im afraid of things that you might see

And all the things that I believe
To be the darker side of me
Hide beneath my face
But a trace of it escapes now from my eyes, my eyes
And your staring straight into my soul
Judging every thought I own

Take it all for what you will
This is what I am and what I want
What I truly care about
The thoughts that I just, wanna shout
Take me as I am, or don't take me at all

Don't take me at all
Track Name: The Things We've Seen
Quit trying to be something that you're not
A stubborn mind will leave you caught
I know you don't know what you want
And how could you

We only know the things we've seen
The rest we only live in dreams

I'm not saying that you're living a lie
But take a look at whats passing you by
Black or white, it doesn't have to be that way
You find yourself in shades of grey

We only know the things we've seen
The rest of it we get from dreams

One day at a time
We take the pieces as we find them
What makes you feel alive
Is when you find that, perfect fit
Stop forcing it
Track Name: Used To Be
It used to be I didn't know
But now I do
It used to be I didn't say
What i was supposed to

But those days are gone
Yet something here it still feels wrong
It used to be
It used to be
Easy

Now I know things I didn't know
Well what does that change?
Wondering if I would still
Make the same mistakes

And I did what I could
I went with what felt good
And I feel, smarter now
But it doesn't seem to get me far

It used to be
It used to be easy
It used to be
That it all came naturally
It used to be
It used to be easy
Before I knew what I know now
What I know now

I did, what I could
I went with what felt good
And I feel smarter now
But it doesn't seem to get me out

And I did, what I could
I went with what felt good
And I feel smarter now
But it doesn't seem to get me out

It used to be
It used to be easy
It used to be
That it all came naturally
It used to be
It used to be easy
Before I knew what I know now
What I know now
