Track Name: A Complete Unknown
In the hallway

a seed was sewn

into the mind of a complete unknown

then a story

which was never known

rose to the surface

and soon took hold



like a battle

you just can't win

what you've kept out

you now let in

and the secrets of a convenient friend

bringing you back

again and again



back and fourth from what you think is right

time could heal the things you feel tonight



so wake up

put on a new face

following through

with agreements made

but a feeling

you just can't name

is taking control

of what you do and say



back and fourth from what you think is right

time could heal the things you feel tonight



roads signal decay

when you're torn between your words

you cannot be saved

this is something you own



you won't get no sympathy

try if you want but it won't be free

from the shadows

you just can't see

desire and need

almost never agree
Track Name: The Other Side
When the morning comes I feel my mind still wonders

that what we have may not be right for me

but perfection keeps you looking around forever

for a heaven only you will ever see



take my time

take my chances

cuz I don't know what all of this will ever mean

hear my words

but don't you listen

cuz I don't know about the other side of me



we had so much fun as we drove around last Sunday

and things were right and I knew just what to do

I've never had a hard time assisting anybody

but my biggest fear is what I can't give to you



take my time

take my chances

cuz I don't know what all of this will ever mean

hear my words

but don't you listen

cuz I don't know about the other side of me



there won't always be tomorrow

I realize



still I take my time

take my chances

cuz I don't know what all of this will ever mean

hear my words

but don't you listen

cuz I don't know about the other side of me

I don't know about the other side of me

I don't know about the other side of me
Track Name: Its Been So Long
It's Been So Long

who's right who's wrong
it doesn't matter still
it doesn't matter still
it's been so long
I don't know how you feel
I don't know how you feel

what's mine what's yours
it doesn't matter still
it doesn't matter still
things aren't like before
I don't know how you feel
I don't know how I feel

mercy finds us every now and then
but holes are present still
same old story time and time again
as you sit on your hill

it doesn’t matter still
it doesn’t matter still

it's been so long
I don't know how you feel
I don't know how you feel

who gives who takes
it doesn't matter still
it doesn't matter still
don’t know what to say
I don't know how I feel
I don't know how I feel

mercy finds us every now and then
but holes are present still
same old story time and time again
as you sit on your hill
yeah
yeah
yeah
yeah

who's right who's wrong
it doesn't matter still
it doesn't matter still
it's been so long
I don't know how I feel
I don't know how I feel
Track Name: Darker Days
Cold

when I found your fire

and you had so much to give

you showed me what it meant

to fight

and be strong enough

to liberate my love

from the futile hands of those that don't believe

in what I need


so you know I won't occupy my mind with the darker days


I wanted

something new

but when the changing winds occurred

I never was too sure

what to do

an assortment of excuse

it's hard to hear the truth

you either listen or you treat it like disease

and i'm hard to please


but you know I won't occupy my mind with the darker days

cuz I know I've found what i'm looking for when I see your face

and there's just a few around when you're in need

and I know you'll be there to define my ways

yeah yeah yeah


but you know I won't occupy my mind with the darker days

cuz I know I've found what i'm looking for when I see your face

and there's just a few around when you're in need

and there's nothing left when you're down on your knees

and I know you'll be there to refine what I know

yeah yeah yeah
Track Name: Self Preservation
Every now and then you wonder what went wrong

Short-term memory sings the latest song

but over time the many lines were drawn

forcing everyone to a place where they belong



we know by now

it's hard to turn this around

but like the leaves change

we just have to rearrange

in order to get by



friends and lovers were never approved to provide

but a parent is anyone showing you how to survive

if there's no game then there's no win or lose

but as it stands now it's got to be me or you



we know by now

it's hard to turn this around

but like the leaves change

we just have to rearrange

in order to get survive



we know by now

it's hard to turn this around

but like the leaves change

we just have to rearrange

in order to get by
Track Name: Leavenworth
It wouldn't take you long

to forget your name

gifts hung around your neck

they don't mean a thing

no laws nor the house of god

could keep your word

time is running out

to begin your search



and in Leavenworth

you knew

what you wanted but

could not do



but I won't belong to this

tracking down the lies that I know I've missed

and only the fools would hang around

cuz when love is lost it can't

be found



some of the wounds I've kept

others kept at bay

wars over times we spent

with nothing left to say



and in Leavenworth

you knew

what you wanted but

could not do



but I won't belong to this

tracking down the lies that I know I've missed

and only the fools would hang around

cuz when love is lost it can't

be found



and I won't belong to this

tracking down the lies that I know I've missed

and only the fools would hang around

cuz when love is lost it can't

be found
Track Name: Grand Opinion
Every time you slip they can't know

everyone needs a chance to start over

who's in charge of love's allocation

those answers never do come easy


so often times your mind will wander

with a focus on what you can get tonight

in the end no one is accountable (in the end I won't be accountable)

what have we left for the ones taking over


time tells you everything

the right from the wrong the songs we sing

the sun will set and the sun will rise

we don't have to live analytical lives


how many times will you be altered

now the scars are turning inside out

soon things will return to wonderful

what have we done for the ones taking over


time tells you everything

the right from the wrong the songs we sing

the sun will set and the sun will rise

we don't have to live analytical lives


if you don't fight

for what you want

roads will be built for you

as you

sit around

sing along

then back on back we'll go

back on back we'll go
Track Name: Fortunate Family Tree
A fortunate one from a fortunate family tree

passing you by taking liberties tonight

but that's all right



when the system fails you'll be next to me

with all it entails and all that asks of me

i'm fine

yeah i'm all right



a full-blown fantasy

a complex pride

your made up nemeses are wrecking your mind



fissures appear in this burning land

where it's hard to find love and hard to make a plan

yeah you know

yeah you know



is this how you'd like to build your world

with half of a song and half sacrificed words

then you're gone

yeah you're gone



a full-blown fantasy

a complex pride

your made up nemeses are wrecking your mind

an unfair penalty

that you can't fight

a long dark canopy

pulled over your eyes



a fortunate one from a fortunate family tree

passing you by taking liberties tonight

oh what a sight



now the earth it turns regardless of harmony

this city it burns but now it's a part of me

and i'm fine

yeah i'm all right



a full-blown fantasy

a complex pride

your made up nemeses are wrecking your mind

an unfair penalty

that you can't fight

a long dark canopy

pulled over your eyes

it's wrecking your mind

it's wrecking your mind

it's wrecking your mind
Track Name: When The Dust Settles
I know you better than you know your own name

those people always drove you crazy

you show interest but you do it all for strangers

tell me something you haven't heard from someone else



don't you know where you are who are you fooling

you're hanging out in the land of the most confused

people's moods just glorify what you're doing

tell me something you haven't heard from all the rest



but I will wait here for you now

and when the dust settles you'll find me here somehow

I'll be someone you never forget

you can't see me now

but I will wait here for you now



you're being as insincere as you ever will be

you just want to get on that fucking TV

taking all that you know for granted slowly

talk a lot with nothing at all to say



but I will wait here for you now

and when the dust settles you'll find me here somehow

I'll be someone you never forget

you can't see me now

but I will wait here for you now



tell me something you know

it won't be long till you beg and you borrow

tell me something you know

tell me something you know



and I will wait here for you now

and when the dust settles you'll find me here somehow

I'll be someone you never forget

you can't see me now

but I will wait here for you now

I will wait here for you now
Track Name: Endings Are Beginnings
I tell myself

that i'm not who I've hated

and when I do

i'm like an old record playing back

I want to start

but it's so hard to begin

everybody's racing

but nobody's winning



now I've tried to forget you

but you just are not leaving

and god I wish

that I could just

be at peace with it

cuz I've done my best

to believe that endings

have something

to do with beginnings
