Track Name: Farther Than We Know
There's a nothern cold,
It brings me down,
I am here.

As glaciers move,
There are signs,
It is gone.

Grey patterns run,
Before they set,
It's unreal,

Remind my eye,
That I am sick,
I'm alone.

Shes encouraged,
By the others,
Nothing else is left that way.
While I sit here,
Ponder dark skies,
Visible in life I stay.
He is honored,
By the others,
Nothing else is left that way.
While I sit here,
Ponder dark sky,
Visible by night I pray.

I found my place,
Certain states,
Belong near.
Though high and low,
No-one's seen,
When it goes,
In spite of flaw,
There are cures,
To admire.
We've spoiled our case,
All that is,
Waited long.

Shes encouraged,
By the others,
Nothing else is left that way.
While I sit here,
Ponder dark skies,
Visible in life I stay.
He is honored,
By the others,
Nothing else is left that way.
While I sit here,
Ponder dark sky,
Visible by night I pray.

This is what I'm looking for,
This is what I'm looking for,
This is what I'm looking for,
I found it,
I found it.

I'm don't think that I would ever admit,
Who I was before,
I'm not worried about how it might be interpreted.
I'm more worried because even friends can be enemies.

Time sends shadows,
We stand closer,
In four corners,
Fate seems lower.

We stand closer,
In four corners.
Track Name: Shanghai Sleeps
They have no clue.
And there's another dimension to it,
Stationed in walls,
It's like a hidden masqueration.
Tyrant not saint,
Helpless we wait,
It is on my fire.

It goes against,
Human nature,
Inside feeling,
What seems real,
Must be real,
It is real.

They're conditioned,
Like a millionth disapperance,
They all lie there,
A certain story's gone beneath him,
He is hanging,
Scared and fending,
I'll walk on in time.

It goes against,
Human nature,
Inside feeling,
What seems real,
Must be real,
It is real.

I swear I tried,
But I couldn't see why,
If I'm unhonest,
I saw the tide.

It goes against.
Human nature,
Inside feeling.
What seems real,
Must be real,
It is real.
Track Name: Out Of Sadness
At the start of the day,
There's a lot I should say,
But I choose to walk on backwards,
I can't believe I'm not moving anymore.

I am stuck in the past,
I've abandoned my past,
I don't want to walk on backwards,
Why can't I see clear anymore?

Out of sadness,
We build gladness,
Walking off clouds,
Jumping off stars,
Wait till we hear,
What the years,
Say behind us.

Out of gladness,
We fake sadness,
Jumping from stars,
Jumping off stars,
Where are the stars?
They're there,
Right behind me.

If I followed the path,
And I read my own plan,
I believe that I'd be somewhere,
Truth be told I'm not one for the plan.

I am stuck in the past,
I've abandoned my past,
I don't want to walk on backwards,
Why can't I see clear anymore?

Out of sadness,
We build gladness,
Walking off clouds,
Jumping off stars,
Wait till we hear,
What the years,
Say behind us.

Out of gladness,
We fake sadness,
Jumping from stars,
Jumping off stars,
Where are the stars?
They're there,
Right behind me.

If you give me a chance,
One simple chance,
I can show that I'm not worthless,
Is this why I am gone tonight?
Track Name: Coming Around
Before I sleep I often wonder,
If I'm right to take a fall,
I question why it is I am here,
But I know that We'll be fine.

What if you were still unhappy,
Would you dream to make a fall?
Isn't that why we have come here?
Or don't we dream here anymore?

I'm not coming if you're not coming around.
I'm not running away,
No I'm walking away from you.
I'm not coming if you're not coming around.

There's a chance that we are nothing,
For time it hides what we can see.
What if you were still unhappy?
Would you dream to make a fall?

I'm not coming if you're not coming around.
I'm not running away,
No I'm walking away from you.
I'm not coming if you're not coming around.
Track Name: Take Me Home
I'm so low,
You should know but,
I don't care,
So leave me there,

All we do,
Is choose to fool,
People into,
See in fight,

I'm so cold,
You should hold me,
By my hand,
Take me home.

All we do,
Is choose to fool,
People into,
See in fight,

Woah Woah Woah,
Ah Ah Ah,
Ah Ah Ah,
Woah, Woah.

Na Na Na,
Why?
Na Na Na,
Why?
Why?
Na Na Na,
Why?
Na Na Na,
Why?
Na Na Na,
Why?
Na Na Na
Why?
Track Name: The Burning Car
It was dark and I could see,
What was right in front of me,
It was burning into shadows,
They were knocking at my door.

How far should we?
Go to feel safe?
I know this time,
Failure is not right.

There's a lack of conversation,
And it's moving me insane,
Tell the man that he's mistaken,
There is light inside our mind,
He's confused but inside stations,
People choose to be somewhere,
There are nights when I'm unspoken,
I am screaming in the dark.

How far should we?
Go to feel safe?
I know this time,
Failure is not right.

I guess if there's one thing,
That I am looking forward to,
When I get out of here,
Is the culture.
I'm not saying it's a bad place to be but,
I want to do more than just be a standing statue,
I want to do something important.

In a time that we can't see,
There are people just like us,
They experiment in danger,
In the end we're all the same.

I watched your fate,
From a distant place,
That we all know well,
We all know far too well.

I can't give you,
What your'e looking for,
I don't have the answers anymore.

That's not the way we're designed,
That's not the way we're designed,
That's not the way we're designed,
That's not the way we're designed.

That's not the way we're designed,
That's not the way we're designed,
That's not the way we're designed,
That's not the way we're designed.
Track Name: Alone But Not Forgotten
All our lives we see,
Places we could be,
We know it seems wrong,
But we keep moving,
We keep going,

There is where I am,
Nowhere near my fire,
Now as people stare,
Toxicated by their troubles,

You're on your own,
You'll be fine,
You'll see,
We're all alone,
That's Okay,
With me.

Years have changed and I'm,
Stronger with the time,
I'm not over you,
Two years later,
I'll be closer.

You're on your own,
You'll be fine,
You'll see,
We're all alone,
That's Okay,
With me.

On your own,
You're not fine,
I see.

On your own,
You're not fine,
I see.

On your own,
You're not fine,
I see.

On your own,
With me.

On your own,
You're not fine.

I see.
Track Name: Track 52
My head is hurting too much,
I think I drank myself to sleep last night,
As always,
It's kind of a problem with being,
A certain kind of sick,
(Inaudible)
But,
it gets me through.

In fact there's a lot of things that I should be doing,
But...
Maybe it's that I just dont have enough time to get,
What I wanted to do done.

If that's a sign that I'm too busy then great...
There's a certain happiness in lonliness,
That not enough people respect.
And who said that being happy was, well,
Being happy,
As I said,
There's a certain degree of happiness in lonliness,
And that's fine with me.
Track Name: Interrupt Me
I know why.
I know why.
I know why.

She was unique because she gave her heart away.
And all the boys fell in love with her from the minute they saw her.
But they're just differences and that's what makes us.

I know.
Who are.

I guess without that knowledge,
I kind of pity myself in many different ways.

The hardest part is coming home.

I know you know.
I've seen the stars.
Long way from home.
