Track Name: She's My Demon
Put me in your pocket of glass shards,
Devil take me to the house of chance,
Bodies making animals in the dark.

Crystal curtains shut you in,
What a tragic war to win,
Fall from grace to a life of sin.

But do you see what's beneath the mask?
And would I be too much for you to even
ask?

She's my demon,
You're my night,
I'm your lover,
And I'll never be satisfied.

Let the years fall away,
Let the day give in,
Spend your whole life waiting for existence
to begin.

But I counted upon
Every coin I tossed,
I don't see miracles,
No,
More like a requiem of loss.

But do you see what's beneath the mask?
And would I be too much for you to even
ask?

She's my demon,
You’re my night,
I'm your lover,
And I'll never be satisfied.
Track Name: Cold Water
You came,
You gave me nothing,
I gave you nothing in return.
I guess there’s no secret to it,
It’s not something we can learn.

But this cold water
Is getting deeper.
Would you want me to wait for you?
Or would you need me to stay?
And could you lie a little longer?
No, I know I don’t belong here just yet.
Or could you try and play your cards
Just a little further away from your chest?

I, I’ve got no choice,
I’ve got to keep it all inside.
And now my body’s running empty,
Heaven knows I’ve tried to deny
This heart of mine.

I know somebody hurt you,
But darling we’re not all the same.
I know it’s always easier
When there’s someone who’s to blame.

This cold water
Is getting deeper.
Would you want me to wait for you?
Or would you need me to break my heart
Into Something you could handle
Or something you could understand?
I’m not asking for everything,
Just give what you can.

I, I’ve got no choice,
I’ve got to keep it all inside.
And now my body’s running empty,
Heaven knows I’ve tried to deny
This heart of mine.

This cold water
Is getting deeper.
Like my father,
Trying to keep her from going in.
Darling I can help you,
Just show me where to begin.
And I will be there by you while
You learn to swim.

I, I’ve got no choice,
I’ve got to keep it all inside.
And now my body’s running empty,
Heaven knows I’ve tried to deny
This heart of mine.
Track Name: Morning's By My Side
New day, new year,
I catch my breath through my mother's
tears.
I count my blessings,
I can't believe how I've got here.
But hold on,
Let's not let this moment pass,
Because beauty
Is always gone too fast.

But now the morning's by my side and I've
already missed the light,
But would you mind if I stayed with you
tonight?

Cool water, my body is tired of the sea,
He said "oh my daughter why?
Are you scared of what you see?"
But maybe we don't have to be so sure,
Maybe that's what growing old is for?

But now the morning's by my side and I've
already missed the light,
But would you mind if I stayed with you
tonight?

I've been praying for the storm
To keep us inside,
I've buried my faults
And I’ve swallowed my pride,
And when the judgement falls on me
I let go.

Clock's turning,
I shut my eyes and I feel you breath.
Forgive me,
I'm still learning and I'm so unsure of what
I can be.
Maybe we don't have to know that now,
When there's so much world that we
haven't found out.

But now the morning's by my side and I've
already missed the light,
But would you mind if I stayed with you
tonight?
Track Name: Moments At A Time
I can’t wait to get under your skin,
Your body’s calling,
And it’s pulling me in.

But break the rules and I’ll break your
bones,
I don’t really need you,
I just don’t want to be alone.

But let’s keep this professional,
We’re human darling, that’s OK.
This thing we have in chemical,
I’ll take you home, but you can’t stay.

But we survive,
Just moments at a time.
And we can hide,
Just close your heart and close your mind.

Talk to you like I’m here to stay,
And I’ll torture you
When I take it all away.

But break the rules and I’ll break your
neck,
I don’t really need you,
I’m just taking what I can get.

There’s beauty in the physical,
Keep useless hearts down at bay.
This love is just electrical,
The price for it,
That I can’t pay.

But we survive,
Just moments at a time.
And we can hide,
Just close your heart and close your mind.

But go slower,
And own my heart.

But break the rules and I’ll break your
neck,
I don’t really need you,
I’m just taking what I can get.

But let’s keep this professional,
We’re human darling, that’s OK.
This thing we have in chemical,
I’ll take you home, but you can’t stay.
There’s beauty in the physical,
Keep useless hearts down at bay.
This love is just electrical,
The price for it
That I can’t pay.

But we survive,
Just moments at a time.
And we can hide,
Just close your heart and close your mind.
Track Name: Something's Begun
I wonder do your catastrophic nightmares
make you blush?
Or when the world goes quiet,
Can you still feel the rush?
Or do you ever fell your dreams just aren’t
good enough?

In my desperation
I thought I’d found a cure,
The key to Eudemonia,
Well I’d never felt more sure.
But I just can’t trust this bullshit anymore.

But if we start working
And we stop hurting our young,
Then maybe it’s working,
Because I see something’s begun.

We lose our loved ones
Like we are losing our keys,
The world will give you what you want
If you change what you believe,
Just prepare to be begging on your knees.

They say ambition is only for the brave,
But if we just ‘keep getting better’
Then we’ll fool ourselves someday,
But just know this life ain’t yours to take
away.

But if we start working
And we stop hurting our young,
Then maybe it’s working,
Because I see something’s begun.
Track Name: Long Road To Nowhere
Pink shadows on the skyline,
Tilt you head,
They could be gods.
Fall in love with a daydream,
And you’ll be dreaming with the dogs.

Driving fast just to get back,
Got to clear this troubled head.
Take a break from distraction,
I’ll be sleeping in an empty bed.

This is coming out of nowhere.

It’s a long road to nowhere,
Because staying in one place,
It’s more than I could bear.

Something simple under nightfall,
By the morning it’ll all be gone.
Say ‘Lua’, you’ve got me tripping,
Can you forgive what I have done?

I find comfort in the silence,
Knowing nothing could hold you down,
I look into the eye of the storm,
There’s beauty in that sound.
I can feel it surround me.

It’s a long road to nowhere,
Because staying in one place,
It’s more than I could bear.

So if this is as far as we get,
Maybe there’s nothing left,
And somehow I can find
A life I don’t regret.

It’s a long road to nowhere,
Trading memories for fantasies,
Hoping that they get me there.
It’s a long road to nowhere,
Because staying in one place,
It’s more than I could bear.

Nothing matters when I’m with you,
Let’s find a place where we can go.
There’s so much you have to teach me,
There’s so much that we don’t know.
Track Name: Bodies In A Room
Darling take that picture out of your pocket
It’s fading.
You say you’ll be here soon,
I’m waiting.
But you’re looking older than before.

That night the sky was falling.
I battened my eyes
And prayed for morning.
Because in the dark the world can’t see me,
Everything collapses so easily.

Constant as a heartbeat,
Certain as a rock,
In this cradle of illusion,
I’ll keep holding on.

You can have your distance,
You can take your time,
To brighten up the darkness
Behind those hazy eyes.

Time it wears our bodies down,
Raise your demons from underground.
Keep the darkness down at bay,
It’s more than mortal life can take.

You say we’re bodies in a room
And no ones willing,
But does this heart count for anything?
Tell me am I getting better?
Or am I getting used to it?

Shadows in the water,
Scared of jumping in,
A modest man’s daughter,
Not the kind you’d chance to win.

Don’t say you miss me,
Or that you want me back,
We’re all looking at the same sky,
Same expanding black.

Time it wears our bodies down,
Raise your demons from underground.
Keep the darkness down at bay,
It’s more than mortal life can take.

Hold me,
My head beneath your shoulder,
You control me,
Now I’m not scared of getting older.
Trust me,
Darling I’m not asking you to
Love me just yet.

Time it wears our bodies down,
Raise your demons from underground.
Keep the darkness down at bay,
It’s more than mortal life can take.
