Track Name: Bandages
You've been captive all along
Lost hold and slide
Just open one
It can't be done
No mask can help you hide
But all at once
Who shot first
Now choose your side

When pulling off the bandage, best is fast
I'm strong enough, I think I can help with that
I'll make it painless as I can
You tell me what you can stand

You spin a nasty web
That you end up tangled in
Woke up by your alarm
Held down by shadow arms
There's no way to explain
The feeling in between
What's next and what we've seen
Now choose your side
Track Name: Colors
I heard a faint alarm
I get it, a minute, we've only gone so far
How could it take so long
I made a decision to live in the moments gone

For all my life, I've been standing on unlucky earth
For crying out, I've sunk that much back in the dirt
I know, I know

That you cast the line, you hold the knife
You count the ways you could take a mans life
Struggling now can only make it worse
I might as well live for every second that it's worth

And you tell me I'm better off silent
In a word, I define, you're not a friend of mine
And you won't survive when it starts to get violent
So get involved, lead the way, or bring it back inside and go

Uh Oh, switch sides, and have ourselves one last toast
Real close, go slow, I want to let your colors show
Uh oh, now you've gone and made yourself the fool
But that's my color too

So why don't you call back, are you damaged
Oh so dramatic, it's almost automatic
Have you lost all your contacts, can you manage
Facts left in the attic or am I going manic
Have you come to life, I made a decision to live on the moon tonight
Track Name: Hours And Minutes
I never thought you'd be one of them
Guess I missed again, maybe one day I'll be right
I see right past your face, or forget your name
Say 'oh yes, I'll call' or maybe worst of all, it's another lie

And I can't help thinking my
Hours that I spent waiting
Gone to waste, no minutes to save me
It'll take a miracle maybe
Sit a bit, and rest my eyes
Look at this, you've been making me cry
Quite a grip, you've got a good hold
Hold me here until we get old

I don't claim I've been wise

No moments left I can give
As it is, I live on borrowed time
I hope you strapped yourself in
The way it is, don't count on the safety line

And I can't help thinking my
Hours that I spent waiting
Gone to waste, no minutes to save me
It'll take a miracle maybe
With your hips you arrest my eyes
Look at this you've been making me cry
Quite a grip, you've got a good hold
Hold me here until we get old

Harsh words at the start of every war
What's the end you're looking for?
In your mind you decide just to ignore
All the signs tacked on your door

Get straight to the point and end this game
I win hand over fist, too bad, I commend you for this
But all of your dice have been thrown, it looks bad
So sad that you missed, fat chance, no you can't handle this
I waited too long to finish the song
It's all about you, so follow me through
Maybe it hurt to finish the verse
Why does it work when you're hearing it first
Do you like it like that?
Track Name: Alarms
You come with a dirty look in your eye
You're the master of just getting a rise and yes you've done it again
You thought you'd walk away and tell your friends you strung another one along again but not tonight this isn't happening
I'll show you how to get down
But I'm telling you now
That it's not probable or possible that any of these obstacles can keep your mind off me once you have felt your world explode and go

One touch, Alarms
They go off inside your head
Relax your arms, get dressless and on the bed
And yes I will make you come again
And another time
You're blessed with the best of all of them
The way I do you right

Attention paid to everything in ways you thought was only staged on the page in seedy novels
Oh no girl
That's just what they told you
See all the times as you passed me right on by I was drinking in your sight and working on a line to drop you girl
It can't get more true girl

Carl Meeks:
When I'm in the mood for love, girl you're always ready
I get emotional feeling inside, you're the one waiting
You always make me happy, in every possible way
Cause you, giving me love, day by day
Track Name: Ashes
First of all, don't want the kind you find in the gutter
It hurts to fall, well past the time to climb another
All their pockets full of ashes now we all fall down on one

It's just mother nature
Yes, yes she's the maker
Yet we hate, hate on the savior
Waste the earth and leave her endagered

Worst of all, I've half a mind to drive erratic
I admit to wrong, the past can leave you with some static
All their pockets full of ashes now let's
Dance tonight
Drown out the amps and you'll hold on
Watch my eyes, make a fist put your game on
Drop disguise, let go and face what's been coming
All their pockets full of ashes now we all fall down on one

For a compromise, you have yours and I'll have mine
All of us should have equal rights
Who are you just to decide
It can all be fine
Tend to yours and I'll mind mine
Still we are pretty far, holding our pocket full of ashes now here we go
Track Name: Corridor
It's easy to see how we forced it
On on and, well after dawn and the fear is mostly gone
Lately my dreams have been morbid
Against the wall their guns and bombs have been killing everyone

You got blood in your eyes
But you'll improvise, and end up on top, how
You can cause the pressure to drop out
It's a coming of age
Another turn of the page
Do you have all your strength now
Somehow I'm starting to shrink down

Walking through corridors
I don't think that I've ever been here before
It gets dark soon
Could you believe we never lit the torch
I guess I should have mentioned that before
It gets dark soon, I'm here to hold on to

What's wrong with today
The villain takes everything
The mess that you made
A moment late, that's too late

But here we are alive
I found a place to stay tonight
These corridors can save us from the world
Have some love, some dance, and some wine
Bottoms up, let's drink tonight
These corridors can take us to the light

The silence grows
It's all been gold and diamonds
Yes I got my mind stuck on the islands
You get too much sun you're baked you can't deny it
If you hear I'm innocent you know I'm lying
But in the end it's your own mind you're frying
So go do what you want this is the only time
Track Name: Outstander
Into the eye
Watching the whole thing fall apart
I'm injured inside
Been bleeding out from the start
It gets hard to stand among the mess
Burnt and pressed against the fence
My soul slides right on through
And now yours can too

We'll stand to the side
Watching them all get drunk and spin
On the edge of the knife
The trick's all in balancing
It gets hard to stand among the mess
Burnt and pressed against the fence
My soul slides right on through
And now yours can too

Wake up, we've been trying to tell you something
Save you from destruction or is that what you like?
Make up any story that you want to, sprinkle on the drama, if you can't believe yourself how can I?

Lean on me now while luck is running out on you
No smoke, no shroud
The damage done at last
It gets hard to stand while getting burnt again
And I can't get mad, my soul slides on through
And now yours can too.
