Track Name: Because I know that I know nothing
To measure up to some sort of man
I don't believe or think ever can
Exist within this warped view
That life expects nothing from you

To fear the past you must feed the new
To tell apart the worries i do
Return to you some sort of pole
That sizes up my life as a whole
Track Name: Gone
Last night I dreamed rekindled love i'd known before
Took me away

Memories lost and found they take my mind
To a place bound in time

But it's all over now
But i'll get back somehow

Last week a scent revived my feelings for you
It carried me away

Unveiled a show adrift in past lives I knew (For what i did know, But i didn't show)
Performing the final view

But it's all over now
But i'll get back somehow

If i could choose it would only be for you
If i could lose it would only be for you
and i do
and i do
Track Name: She Came in Through the Tripwires
Cause im gonna sell you on
Because im gonna win alone


She wants to know to make you bite
All the same night after night
Theres nothing wont trample on
She's gone, moved on


She's got a smile don't count for much
An acid tounge that don't let up
Talks a lot has nothing to say
Manoeuvres you in every way
Track Name: Where do your eyes roam
So, you learned the lessons they've sold
told all the stories they told
have all ways wondered why you have felt apart from them
and I

I have always felt apart from them

So you, you steer the ship of fools
Anchor your thoughts and your rules
Kid the blind that you have seen the way to be

But you, know what you have to do
The answer is beckoning you
Needless to say you've known it now since long ago
Track Name: Resist
Its like, I never questioned the finer points and
Its like, She took everything I'd ever known and
She called and said that I didn't notice
Notice her
No not at all

cause
She was the one
That had fallen before
She was the one but
Not anymore


For what I have chosen I should have known
But I wasn't born to
Born to resist
She called and said that I didn't notice
Notice her
No not at all

cause
She was the one
That had fallen before
She was the one but
Not anymore
Track Name: Stuck on repeat
No I wont trade with any of you
Not the way i see it

I won't ask upon you
cause I won't ask upon you


So I'm a loser, well I don't mind
that age is a high price for what you have learned


No I wont trade with any of you
Not the way i see it

I won't ask upon you
cause I won't ask upon you


Your words have nothing to say
I'll just smile, act in your way
Talk about weather, how was your day?
Stuck on repeat

I won't ask upon you
cause I won't ask upon you
Track Name: All you do
There is no chance that i will follow you
Well innocence i know is all you do

So i will cut you off
Make everything you do a loss
But you're sold right to the bone

I didn't want it all
I didn't ask for it
Can you take it back
Didn't question love, just answered it

Theres a man on my shoulder
He gets wise i get older


Your broken smile tells me all i need
Faceless accusations of peace and need

Your own lines been crossed
Self absorbed by your loss
To easy to rely on

I didn't want it all
I didn't ask for it
Can you take it back
Didn't question love, just answered it
Track Name: Somewhere out there
If you miss the start then i'll catch you up
and If you're on a losing streak, I would be your luck
and If you made a stand, then i would be your right hand

so whats the matter with you
why dont you do it too?

Say you're the only one
Say you're the one
The only one
The only one for me

If you needed sun then i would take you away
and If you favoured rain then you could make me stay
and If you were down, I would be your step up

so whats the matter with you
why dont you do it too?

Say you're the only one
Say you're the one
The only one
The only one
Say you're the one
Say you're the one
The only one
The only one for me
Track Name: When I've heard every story told
When i was even younger still
Younger than a younger you
Well remember the things i said i'd do
Thats when I'll call to you

When all of my senses fail
and I'm writing my own hate mail
and I'm beginning to hear those footsteps too
Thats when ill call for you

When all my dreams they fade to dust
and Im left staring at that empty cup
and in the mirror theres only a fool
Thats when ill come back to you

When only pain runs through these vains
and i dont even record change
Theres nothing else left to do
but Get on my knees and call to you

because im on my own again
because im coming home alone again


When my age it overtakes me
and Who i am i can no longer be
and Everyone else i have outgrew
thats when ill come find you

When the waitresses have all gone home
and I'm left there all alone
I'll get off my lonely stool
and Crawl on back to you

When I've thought i gave them the slip
But the hangman wants to make it quick
When I've got no one else to turn to
Thats when ill run to you

When I've bought every sports car
Praised every god and allah
When theres nothing else to buy into
Thats when ill reach for you

When I've heard every story told
Watched all my heros grow old
and Theres no one else to look up to
Thats when ill need you too
