Track Name: See Things
Once there was a woman that I use to love
But she left me waiting by the sun here on the sand out in the sea
I watch the waves and the shapes they create how the push move and change
Manipulate the world ever so slightly reaching out to touch me
I’ve been touched by the hands of god isn’t that good enough
I tried to trust I cant won’t never not gonna fall in love
No not again without permission from a vision from up above
Oh sweet heart what is it this time
I want the truth no lies of any kind
Answers explanations that just don’t exist
I suppose if you really just want me to forget
I possibly maybe could just settle for one last kiss
From your lovely beautiful lips
Track Name: My Son
I used to have a lover yeah she used to love me
Things are different now you know she’s a memory
She never could seem to make me smile
Happiness drifted after a while
I became distant like a foreign country
Japan, France, or Harrisonville Missouri Ah

Oh darling don’t go don’t leave me all alone
If you go so will my son and I will be the only one

I didn’t mean to break her broken heart
All I was trying not to do was fall apart
Now that she’s gone my world has changed
My whole life has been rearranged oh
I’ve been lost in some one else's dreams
I’m tired of trying to find out who I’m supposed to be ah

Oh darling don’t go don’t leave me all alone
If you go, so will my son and I will be the only one

I gave up on sleep it don’t work anymore
I avoid the dreams I used to adore
When I walk alone in the middle of the night
I always burn out all the streetlights
I don’t like who it is I have become
lost alone angry empty and numb ah yeah

Oh darling don’t go don’t leave me all alone
If you go so will my son and I will be the only one
Track Name: Like Love
Well it’s like love but it’s more like science fiction
Or some sort of strange you know drug addiction
I don’t even know who I am anymore what have I done?
Who have I become? This is not who I am
This is not no I said it is not this is not who I am
Hey you are you listening to me I love you but I can’t say that
I am in love no I love you but I can’t say I’m in love

And I don’t know if there is another way
maybe you and I yeah maybe some day
We will change and we will
be different people yeah who feel differently
But until then I’m sorry you know I just can’t see
what it is you want me to believe

And this comfort zone is like a delusional dream
Just because it’s comfortable doesn’t mean a thing
I love you like a tree does the ground
But I constantly feel like my life is upside down
Hey you are you listening to me I love you but I can’t say that
I am in love no I love you but I can’t say I’m in love

And I don’t know if there is another way
maybe you and I yeah maybe some day
We will change and we will
be different people yeah who feel differently
But until then I’m sorry you know I just can’t see
what it is you want me to believe

You know people take that whole revenge thing to far
Being resentful only kills the heart what have we done?
Who have we become? This is not who we are
This is not no I said it is not this is not who we are
Hey you are you listening to me I love you but I can’t say that
I am in love no I love you but I can’t say I’m in love
Anymore
Track Name: In My Head
In my head it was a symphony
I gave it all up and sold it for free
Everything you want is impossible for me
You want true love you want romance
Darling I would learn how to dance
If I thought our future ever had a chance
I’ll tell you the secrets of the universe
A key to unlock any witches curse
Every move you make only makes it worse
I won’t pretend I’m jealous man
I’ll slide the diamond off the skeletons hand
Remove you from this world open the door to another land
And you won’t believe me that’s nothing new what the hell am I suppose to do

Nothings ever good enough for you
nothings ever good enough for you
Nothings ever good enough for you

I will trust you one day maybe never
As far as I could throw a feather
My mental state of mind changes like the weather
I could read you prose and poetry
On a beach some where underneath a tree
Forget about the past a mental tragedy
I may be a delicate man but I am not a lamb
The truth is after all these years you don’t even know who I am
And if you really don’t want me here it’s all right I can disappear
For the first time in my life everything is so clear
You won’t believe me that’s nothing new what the hell am I suppose to do when

Nothings ever good enough for you
no nothings ever good enough for you
Nothings ever good enough for you
no nothings ever good enough for you
Nothings ever good enough for you

you will never know who I am
You will never know who I am
you will never know who I am
You will never know who I am
you will never know who I am
Track Name: Killing Yourself
I’ve got nothing no complaints for all I’ve had
I lost my mother and well you know my dad
For the life he had he did the best he could
But he didn’t do a damn thing like he should
I gave up living life at home
And a girl who always likes to talk on the phone
She doesn’t love me but she likes to pretend
I left her hanging out on the other end


Oh babe don’t do this to me hold me responsible for what you believe
A true love fantasy that I can’t see a mirage on the hill in the cemetery
I got an ocean view and a summer breeze underneath the birch tree watching the leaves falling like an acrobat from a trapeze Oh babe what do you want from me

I need a vacation from the land upstairs
You don’t understand you know and I don’t care
Just because your folks didn’t treat you right
Doesn’t give any reason to hangout and fight
I’m depressed sick and sad from all of the lies
You treat me like an enemy why am I surprised
Searching for the parents that we never had
Your not my mother and I’ll never be your dad

Oh babe don’t do this to me hold me responsible for what you believe
A true love fantasy that I can’t see a mirage on the hill in the cemetery
I got an ocean view and a summer breeze underneath the birch tree watching the leaves falling like an acrobat from a trapeze Oh babe what do you want from me

If you think you thought you had it all worked out
Well there are some shadows and there are some doubts
Jesus what that hell is it you want from me
I got people places and things to see
Darling listen closely when you tell me good bye
This will be the last time you ever lie
I’ve got more important things to do with my life
Than have you convince me that you are my wife

Oh babe don’t do this to me hold me responsible for what you believe
A true love fantasy that I can’t see a mirage on the hill in the cemetery
I got an ocean view and a summer breeze underneath the birch tree watching the leaves falling like an acrobat from a trapeze Oh babe what do you want from me

Suicide is one thing darling but this I can’t believe
You hold me hostage and threaten me your gonna kill yourself if I leave
Track Name: Gone Outside
Gone outside went for a walk I’m losing track of time
Everything is backwards inside of the head or maybe it’s in the mind
I question myself about the choices I’ve made was it her fault or mine
I guess it’s hard to really know you sold me a person and you gave me a ghost and you want me to stop building the wall well I’ve built it so well it will never fall


Apart of me wants me to believe
You don’t want me I know that you want me
I know that you want me I know that you want me to be somebody else


I gave up giving into you
You don’t want to listen you don’t want the truth
You can’t convince me to see it your way
You want to talk to me but there is nothing to say
Another chance another chance you beg and plead
You broke my heart your gonna have to leave
And you want me to stop building the wall
well I told you already it will never fall


Apart of me wants me to believe
You don’t want me I know that you want me
I know that you want me I know that you want me to be somebody else

Yeah, ok

The sound of the water against the land
Eases the mind inside if the man
I’m feeling much better know that I’m not here
I told you I was gonna have to disappear
When I jumped out of the moving car
You knew what you were doing you pushed too far
And you want me to stop building the wall
Well it’s too late now it will never fall


Apart of me wants me to believe
You don’t want me I know that you want me
I know that you want me I know that you want me to be somebody else


What ever there was is gone for good
Even if it’s not I don’t think I could
This emotional trade is not for me
You can have what you want here’s what I need
You guessed right when you said I was wrong
it’s all my fault and I will soon be gone
Track Name: Red Cloud
If it wasn’t over well I know it is now this time for sure
My heart is heavy like a red cloud in the sky
Waiting to rain like a tear in my eye
No going back no changing the past
What’s done is done and that is that
And I know that you’re sorry
And you want another chance
But darling I’m telling you there’s no romance

In my soul my heart or head
all the dreams I had last night in bed
I wished I could go back into the past
and erase you from my thoughts finally at last
I don’t want to do with myself anymore
I’d love to see the ocean But I can’t even afford
The bus fare from here to there
Everything is changing and oh my god I’m scared

I’ve been thinking about the world myself and pretty girls
How they have no effect on me anymore
I’ve rehashed the past and looked at photographs
And hurt myself in the head
And I can’t convince myself I’ve made the right choice
In the middle of the night I still here your voice
And I know that you want another chance
But darling I’m telling you there is no romance

In my soul my heart or head
all the dreams I had last night in bed
I wished I could go back into the past
and erase you from my thoughts finally at last
I don’t want to do with myself anymore
I’d love to see the ocean but I can’t afford
to go anywhere let alone from here to there
Everything is changing and I no longer care

If it wasn’t over well I know it is now this time for sure
With out a doubt in my mind this will most likely be the very last time
Track Name: Last Spring
I should not have seen this as a sign I will let you in I will start if you begin please unlock the door

Is it god fate true love or hate I can’t relate to you anymore?
I should not have seen this as a sign in my mind

When you came back from the other side of the world
Once again you became my girl
Everything was perfect every was new and I fell in love again with you

I should not have seen this as a sign in my mind
I want to love you and let you learn and all that I wanted was love in return

Is it god fate true love or hate I can’t relate to you anymore
I should not have seen this as a sign in my mind
Over the Atlantic and under the sun you are and angel and I’m not the one

How could this be I can’t believe this is I’m am I will never be
Who and what you will ever need I tried I failed I died and I will bleed

Is it god fate true love or hate I can’t relate to you anymore
And the criminal he came and he stole your last name
And the ring stainless steel tension set diamonds I gave to you last spring
Track Name: Mercury
(Instrumental)
Track Name: The Fall
Underneath a tree in the night in the dark
All alone in an empty lonely park
You and I yeah we stare at the stars
we fall asleep inside the car
On the night that we fell in Love In Love

All the things that use to matter and mean so much
Have slipped away or I am out of touch

Either way it doesn’t matter and I just don’t care
You look so pretty with flowers on your hair
I’m in Love with you will you marry me
I’ve been lost for a long but somehow finally
Every little thing is gonna be OK
Even if it’s not well it only seems that way
Oh my darling my baby doll
I hope this never stops I love the feeling of the fall the fall

As long as we don’t look too deep to destroy
The magic of the moment we will always enjoy
The future of what that we can’t see
What ever it is well it’s good enough for me
As long as I have you I will have what I need
As long as I have you I will always believe in love
Track Name: Negative Space
I can feel your jealousy a guilty trip your trying to put me on
I don’t even know what it is I’ve done or who it is you want me to become
You say all you want is in my head
You know it feels more like to me you’d rather just have me dead
If this is not what you really want stop telling me to go before I’m gone
One last chance I tried to give you want to ruin a life well you got your own to live
You’ve pushed me just a little bit too far this time

Please don’t do this to me again
I’m trying to be in love I’m trying to pretend
Everything is cool you know everything is fine
I’m in control of your life you are of mine
If you think that these lies are the kind the fly
Your gonna have yourself another story to tell before you die

Yeah

I don’t know what you want from me now
I don’t know what you want oh

Ok I’m sorry I give up you win
What do you want from me I’m trying to love you just pretend
Everything is cool you know everything is fine
I’m in control of your life what the hell are you doing with mine
You dissolved my heart and so quickly replaced with the feeling of emptiness and Negative oh space

Yeah

I don’t know what you want from me now
I don’t know what you want from me
I don’t know what you want
Oh My God

Come a little closer you know listen to me
If you think your gonna get off with this Scott free
You got another thing coming your way
There is a word for these kinds of mistakes
I told you way back right from the start
How it had to be or I would fall apart
Track Name: The Ocean
Your eye’s remind me of a time when I could not see the ocean is inside of me
I could swim forever as long as you never ever are going to leave me

Oh darling what would I do if I didn’t have you to hold on to
What would be nothing no one Just another some one lost in the sea

Why you don’t believe me

I will never understand the world they left to me oh god
With all thoughts one could think I could dream forever as long as you never
Ever were going to leave me

Oh darling what would I do if I didn’t have you to hold on to
What would be nothing no one Just another some one lost in the in the mystery


Your love reminds me of a time when I could not breathe with all the air in the sky
I could fly forever as long as you never ever are going to leave me

Oh darling what would I do if I didn’t have you to hold on to
What would be nothing no one Just another some one lost in the breeze
Track Name: XXXXXXXXXXXXX
