Track Name: Rollercoaster
VERSE 1:

And I fall into the sea
That will capture me till morning

I'm not ready to drown
But your dragging me down to the sand

You've got you're tentacles of lust
Wrapped in and out around my fingers

And your inky black cloud of lies
Pulls me further from land

INTERLUDE

VERSE 2:

All these bubbles in my vision
Like the dishes in my kitchen
Are obscuring my view
I can't see through

You're gonna suck me down the drain
Whirlpools in my brain
I'm in a terrible mood
I'll blame it on you
(Oooh)

But I get caught in the disposal
I'm not liking this proposal
I feel like a spoon
Or a piece of food

I'm sick of thrashing and winding
And gashing and grinding
Up against the wall
You're orders are so tall

But I'm not the same person without you

CHORUS:

True
Sometimes I say I'm sick of living with you
But without you I don't know what the hell I'd do
You balance out this
Roller coaster up and down the

Day
Sometimes I feel like pushing you away
But no matter what the words that I say
I'll keep you with me on this
Roller coaster up and down

VERSE 3:

Oh the terror of night
Is falling down from the ceiling

And your hand grips my shoulder
Like a spider with a terrible claw

You're piercing under my skin
You make me feel paper thin, what a feeling

You strip away the layers
Make me shiver cause my mind is so raw

But I'm not the same person without you

CHORUS:

True
Sometimes I say I'm sick of living with you
But without you I don't know what the hell I'd do
You balance out this
Roller coaster up and down the

Day
Sometimes I feel like pushing you away
But no matter what the words that I say
I'll keep you with me on this
Roller coaster up and down

(Up and down)
(Up and down)
(Up and down)
(Up and down)
(Up and down)
(Up and down)
(Up and down)
(I'll keep you on this roller coaster up and down)

True
Sometimes I'm sick of living with you
But without you I don't know what I'd do
So I'll keep you with me on this
Roller coaster up and down
Track Name: Soldiers of Our Minds
VERSE 1:

There's no place that I would rather be than right here next to you
You know the best days of summer have already passed and I think I start to feel it too
You tell me whats on your mind tell me whats going on hoping that I dont break down
You hope that I will know that it's the right thing to docause we both know your leaving town

Your words hit me hard knock my heart to the floor in my eye there's a shimmer of a tear
But you give me a hug tell me everythings fine that I dont have anything to fear
It hurts me to think of all the things we could have done if you and me were still together
But I understand the place where your coming from I know that love doesn't last forever.

CHORUS:

This place where love resides,
You get the funny feeling everythings alright
So let me take a minute to look into your eyes
Seeking out the future is the best sometimes

Reach out your hand and Ill take yours
A leap of faith together walking through this door
The soldiers of our minds are getting ready for war
Gaze into the clouds and we can let our hearts soar

VERSE 2:

The road that leads us far away, but stills stays close to home,
The line that separates clinically insane and just a little out of control
If home's where the heart is than what about the place where I left my heart behind
When I think about the road that leads back home, it seems like a waste of time

If i didnt know better I think i might think that your trying to take advantage of me
But i remember the times and I remember the places and i know that you were happy
Sometimes things just don't work out the way your plan was envisioned
Its those times you just gotta take a step back and give your plan a little revision

CHORUS:

This place where love resides,
You get the funny feeling everythings alright
So let me take a minute to look into your eyes
Seeking out the future is the best sometimes

Reach out your hand and Ill take yours
A leap of faith together walking through this door
The soldiers of our minds are getting ready for war
Gaze into the clouds and we can let our hearts soar
Track Name: Run Away
VERSE 1:

They're calling my name
Calling me to surrender
But a lost memory shows up with a warning sign
A finger of pain reaches into your chest and starts attacking
Thats the point when reality starts to be a state of mind

You know that someone out there is looking for your secrets
Maybe the government or hackers or maybe it's just your self
You think about all the things that you've been hiding
But then you realize that it can't be you, it must be somebody else

CHORUS:

Run away from this heaven
Cut the cords and turn your back before it's too late
Run away and try not to remember
You have to find something new to ease the pain
You better run dont look back just run away

VERSE 2:

Whatcha know, overflow
Everything's remote control
Trying to remember if it was light or dark before the snow
Golden glow, hammerthrow
Watch out your gonna fall below
Working hard to fill your status quo, right? No.

If everything was perfect there'd be no need for the military
Sirens, whistles, bombs and missiles blowing up preliminary
Try to stop it you'll get dropped by millions of bullets, they got
Trillions of dollars just to throw away, more money every day

Sometimes you just have to fight it
Other days you just can't deny it
Sometimes there's just nothing left to do...

CHORUS:

But run away from this heaven
Cut the cords and turn your back before it's too late
Run away and try not to remember
You have to find something new to ease the pain
You better run dont look back just run away

BRIDGE:

Trapped inside me
I can't hide there's a barrier protecting me
Stone wall made of bullet-proof kevlar
All that i can do is scream

VERSE 3:

Resolution seems like a long ways off
But you gotta keep something in mind
If everybody had nothing to do
We'd all stare at the seconds going by

Sometimes the best thing to do
Is to remember to focus on the present moment
So when life starts to get the better of you
Please just remember one thing, please dont

Run away
Track Name: Song of Himself
He was a young man
He had it all figured out
Then one day it came crashing down

He knew that was everything was falling apart
He thought he could save it all
From ruin

Little did he know that
The worst things happen at the best time
Little did he know that

The blood of a savior
The mind of a hero
The unspoken words
That could have changed time

Killed by the fear
Of self-righteous cowards
Every pure soul
Is waiting to die

Stepped out of the door
Of his one-room apartment
Planning on attending
A convention of sorts

He looked up to see a strange
Man in black clothing
The bullet found its way
Straight into his heart

The way the grass bends in the wind
Never again
The deep rays of sunshine at sunrise through the mountains at dawn
Never again
The golden leaves twitching and twirling and falling and dying to brown
Never again
I wish I could have just one final goodbye moment
Reach for the sky hoping
Please stay alive dammit
Why do we die

Then the memories fade, nothing in sight
I cross the mountains and welcome the light
I welcome the light

I found home
(He was a young man, he had it all figured out)
I made it home
(He was a young man, he had it all by himself)
I don't need nobody else
Cause I got myself
(He didn't need nobody else)
And I found home right here
I got home
Right here
Track Name: Paint Me a Picture
VERSE 1:

Paint me a picture and all this will go away
The time and the distance and the problems tbay we both face
Tell me that one day I'll get to see you again
Tell me well make it that long

I guess were both crazy for truing to make this work
We baely know each other but the distance already hurts
But were in this together together we stand alone
Trying our best to go on

CHORUS:

But its easy
When you are here in my arms
Please don't leave me
Alone here to fight with my heart
And it's nobody's fault but there our own
What choice did we have we were both going home
It was take it or leave it we knew
What choice did I have I was falling for you

VERSE 2:

Scared like no other but will you walk back with me tonight
Sharing our favorite shows round the fire light
Do you feel this too or are you just being nice
I suck at picking up on these types of clues

So one night I finally get up the guts to ask
If I'm just crazy or if you feel the same way as
Me and you say that you do and you start to laugh
So I reach out my hand to you

CHORUS:

Cause its easy
When you are here in my arms
Please don't leave me
Alone here to fight with my heart
And it's nobody's fault but there our own
What choice did we have we were both going home
It was take it or leave it we knew
What choice did I have I was falling for you

VERSE 3:

So tell me a story about back home in Ontario
Is it frosty already the ground covered up with snow
Apologetic Canadians with accents that they don't know
With Tim Hortons and free health care

So write me a letter with all that you have to say
Is there a future together or does it just fade away
So I'll hold my breath until I can see the day
The day that we both hope is there

CHORUS:

Cause its easy
When you are here in my arms
Please don't leave me
Alone here to fight with my heart
And it's nobody's fault but there our own
What choice did we have we were both going home
It was take it or leave it we knew
What choice did I have I was falling for you

So paint me a picture
