Track Name: Home (studio edit)
I've been on this road for quite some time,
Never found a place that I'll call mine,
Everybody needs a place to be,
Maybe they find it eventually.

But this place is not my home,
It's just another place to be alone,
And I wish that you were with me and by my side.

I've been on the road since 2008,
Thought I saw me in a better place,
Looking back I wanted different things,
But there ain't much time when pressure rings.

This place is not my home,
It's just another place to be alone,
And I wish you could give me somewhere to hide.

But this place is not my home,
It's just another place to be alone,
And I wish that you were with me and by my side.
Track Name: Middle of Nowhere (studio edit)
Babe, you walk a fine line,
Between what's wrong and what is right,
I guess you know how to play this game,
What does it matter anyhow?
The rules are yours all the same.

You lead me into the darkness,
Blind, battered and beat by your lies,
If I had this chance again,
Maybe I'd think twice.

Now I don't know where I'm going,
Even less what I'll find,
I'm in the middle of nowhere,
And I feel fine.

The call to go has been so strong,
Still I'm living here all on my own,
We fight enough sometimes to start a war,
There's the problem,
We don't know what we're fighting for.

You thought I wasn't thinking,
Hard enough for you to tell,
Between the lies and the soul sinking,
You don't know me too well

Now I don't know where I'm going,
Even less what I'll find,
I'm in the middle of nowhere,
And I feel fine.

Now I don't know where I'm going,
Even less what I'll find,
I'm in the middle of nowhere,
And I feel fine.
Track Name: We Fade Away (studio edit)
Remember when we laughed
And the days just passed?
As we laid under the stars and dreamed our lives
After a day or two.

There we said so many words
We never knew the gravity of
Or how hard it would be to fulfill possibility
In a life where eternity ain't real.

Now the days have passed and our time is through
We fade away our whole lives too.
All the light and all the darkness too
I wish it wouldn't face away so soon.

Driving out to your place
Where the view was all there was to save
Where the locals just hated me because I
Was from a different part of town.

Down the line our moment passed
We knew our journey was fading fast
I found another way to spend my every day with someone
Whom words cannot define.

Now the days have passed and our time is through
We fade away our whole lives too.
All the light and all the darkness too
I wish it wouldn't face away so soon.

You took it well when you got the news
That my life had forgotten about you
Why I wouldn't improve, why I wouldn't just talk to you
I guess I will never know.

I try not to think about you
But the conversation is never through
Still we would not reconnect and I thought that you were bitter at best
So I guess we're not that different after all.

Now the days have passed and our time is through
We fade away our whole lives too.
All the light and all the darkness too
I wish it wouldn't face away so soon.
Track Name: Well Maybe (studio edit)
Where you running to my baby now?
Can't you find some grace or a way out?
When you've got there let me know,
No doubt I'll support your show.

Took the bait and now I'm dying on the line,
you can't run away from your tangled mind,
Smell the flowers, see the fields,
Can't you see what's left to feel?

Well maybe it's alright
Well maybe there are two sides of this fight.
Well maybe we'll get through
Well maybe let's not hope too soon.

I knew I lost you when you went away
You said there was no other but it didn't matter anyway.
I cannot believe in you
Your self-assurance leaves no room.

Well maybe it's alright
Well maybe there are two sides of this fight.
Well maybe we'll get through
Well maybe let's not hope too soon.

Well maybe it's alright
Well maybe there are two sides of this fight.
Well maybe we'll get through
Well maybe let's not hope too soon.
Track Name: Save Yourself (studio edit)
Give yourself another chance,
As the sun breaks through the trees,
Spare your heart that old romance,
Drift away upon the breeze.

Go alone to find yourself,
Though the road you know is long,
Put your past back on the shelf,
Accept mistakes now as your own.

Save yourself, and you'll save me again,
Free to roam, still you'll stay my friend,
And when you find your home, just call me again.
And I'll see you again,
Oh, I'll see you again.

On the dark side of the world,
You found a call to life unknown,
Watered by your life so well,
Into a flower you have grown.

I recall your parting words:
"Don't wait up; you're still young."
I sat back as life unfurled,
I let you go and be the one.

Save yourself, and you'll save me again,
Free to roam, still you'll stay my friend,
And when you find your home, just call me again.
And I'll see you again,
Oh, I'll see you again.
Track Name: Worn Down (studio edit)
What a joy it is to be here,
Waking up in this morning light,
Didn't think I would make it,
After our long lasting fight.

Where you win some days,
You force me to choose,
Between the troubles of life that I know are easy to lose.

I'm worn down to the bone,
I'm scared and tired,
And afraid of being alone.

There's no help for my delusions,
Just these pills to numb my brain,
But even if there were solutions,
I'd reject them all the same.

I was standing on the bridge,
Choking on booze,
Overdosed on life and the ease if I lose.

I'm worn down to the bone,
I'm scared and tired,
And afraid of being alone.

You saved my soul when I met you,
From the fate of a broken heart,
Though I've tried so hard to lose you,
You are forever in my heart.

Still keeping me sane,
You keep away the blues,
And the troubles of life which I know are easy to lose.

I'm worn down to the bone,
I'm scared and tired,
And afraid of being alone.
Track Name: The End Will Come For You
"How's it going?" she suddenly questions
"What you going through?"
Sat back yet showing resistance
He's got a point of view.
Too much for listening people
Who watch every move
Keep working hard for the evil
Got something to prove.

Now you've given away our chances
You can't stay well and true.
Tired of playing these same old dances
The end will come for you.
It's coming for you.

She checks out her endless timeline
And sighs with despair
'If I could only be somewhere fine,
Where the bosses care.
No more of this email bullshit
No more crying
Still I need that next promotion,
Even if it means I'm lying.'

Little steps never bring new chances
Those at the top always choose.
Giving tunes to our same old dances.
The end will come for you.
It's coming for you.

Sitting cold and giving her sweet time
To be ignored
By the State who claim the breadline
Is all they can afford.
She lashes out at each institution
And is locked inside
A system which breeds on losing
You cannot hide.

There's a man with a thousand chances
Whom we leave on the loose.
Treats the end of the world like dances
The end will come for you.
It's coming for you.
Track Name: Walls (studio edit)
Growing older the time grows
Always colder, I can't go on,
Living this way, I know.

I fight my feelings always,
They leave me reeling and down on myself,
As I wait for the sky to fall.

But there ain't a doubt,
Baby, there is no way out,
And I just can't scream and shout,
So you're breaking down the walls to save me.
And I can't let go,
I'm haunted by the past, I know,
Wondering how I can go on,
Till you break down the walls and save me.

If I am guilty of one thing,
It always kills me that I did not do
More to let you know.

What I'm feeling,
What I'm thinking,
As I deal with this pain I know.

But there ain't a doubt,
Baby, there is no way out,
And I just can't scream and shout,
So you're breaking down the walls to save me.
And I can't let go,
I'm haunted by the past, I know,
Wondering how I can go on,
Till you break down the walls and save me.

But there ain't a doubt,
Baby, there is no way out,
And I just can't scream and shout,
So you're breaking down the walls to save me.
And I can't let go,
I'm haunted by the past, I know,
Wondering how I can go on,
Till you break down the walls and save me.
