Track Name: Sense in This
Nobody answered the call
I knew it was me
Laughing and joking to win
Who knows? We'll see
Can't get anything out of it
So why do we try?
Merrily making over it
just to see how it turns out
wishing and hoping til' then that the roof will hold the leaks.
Why do we even bother?
It all comes and goes

If you could find some sense in this vengeful act
and now a drunken binge
Pattern the bickering, write down the formula
Wish you could once in a while find something you love.

Nobody saw it was me, I was sure. I wore all black.
Hoping you wouldn't know I did this evil deed.
I couldn't even follow why this even had to be done.

If you could find some sense in this vengeful act
and now a drunken binge
Pattern the bickering, write down the formula
Wish you could once in a while find something you love.

Don't think you can fool me.
I've been through enough with you,
Just because you're lonely, doesn't mean he's good for you.

Nobody told the truth
we all lived with the secrets.
Poisoning the very air that we gulped for our breath.
The venom is slow to strangle
any way that we had out.
Can't take back what's been said or done.
All we can do is go forward and move on.
The price of this is bitter, and costly all the same.

If you could find some sense in this vengeful act
and now a drunken binge
Pattern the bickering, write down the formula
Wish you could once in a while find something you love.
Track Name: Compromising Situation
An experiment in repeating mistakes.
A lucid eye could see infinitely
But who am I to just quake?
It's suicide most definitely

Do or die situation that I'm in
You and I might think about this before we begin
In the nighttime when the moon is still high
You and I might speak about it when it's time

A treacherous pact we seal
A fly on the wall might hear
And we all see that it's real
A sudden rush that we know it's near

Do or die situation that I'm in
You and I might think about this before we begin
In the nighttime when the moon is still high
You and I might speak about it when it's time

Heyyyy
Do you think about it anymore? And I can't get it off my mind hey eh yeah...
It's kinda like that, except with more words
and I can't get it off my mind

Fighting the urge to disappear
A susurrus of the soul in repose
And to or to not interfere
the polyphonic path you chose

Do or die situation that I'm in
You and I might think about this before we begin
In the nighttime when the moon is still high
You and I might speak about it when it's time
Track Name: Between Us
You have noting but bad thoughts
Sent to tempt me
Writhing in the parking lot
Is seldom what it seems
Ask for nothing and get it back and see where it leads
if you never say your mind you'll never get what you seek

You could not even try
How could you when you're right?

A train could go past Oklahoma and you might finally get through this
I've given enough to hopefully get it back
And I did it for us, and all the things that we lack
And you

You bring nothing but mysteries
And a fleeting glimpse of a dream
Since you've come back, the weather's beginning to freeze
Tan that leather hide
and rest the tired head
Everything's all a play
and you're the star of it

How could you even know? When I never let it show

A plane could fly past Oklahoma
and you could finally see this through

I've given enough to hopefully get it back
And I did it for us
And all the things we lack
And you could wait
And we could say
That nothing's come between us
Track Name: Après un Rêve
Dans un sommeil que charmait ton image
Je rêvais le bonheur, ardent mirage
Tes yeux étaint plus doux, ta voix pure et sonore,
Tu rayonnais comme un ciel éclairé par l'aurore;

Tu m'appelais et je quittais la terre
Pour m'enfuir avec toi vers la lumière,
Les cieux pour nous entr'ouvraient leurs nues
Splendeurs inconnues, lueurs divines entre vues

Hélas! Hélas, triste réveil des songes
Je t'appelle, ô nuit, rends moi tes mensonges,
Reviens, reviens radieuse,
Reviens, ô nuit mystérieuse!
Track Name: Something True
I could not leave without seeing him
So I thought that I would listen for a while
Drift in the song's sweet melody
Listen close and you will find his heartbeat
I can never break the bounds
Fretfully I can only enjoy the sound

The breaking of dawn can't be far from now
Rising above gotta mean something true
And I can see this misery is pouring out of you
Wake me up I am stuck in this dream

When I hear that sad old song It takes me back to a place I thought was gone
Where the air is crisp and the shadows hold you so close and we never felt the cold
But memory still can't keep the notes the music in my life is all that keeps me afloat

And didn't we once say that peace comes with age
But I feel I haven't changed can't we just move on can't we just move on
And haven't we paid for everything we can't erase
