Track Name: Mirrors
Mirrors

I'm swimming in eternity
poor little lonely me
the time that's lost can not be found
so why is it you search around
eyes straight forward and look ahead
the past belongs to the dead
so come on bring your brittle bones
you wont have to hold those on your own

The skull in my mirror
every day is growing clearer
i can see the death around
from time to time i hear the sound
whispers in my ears at night
awaken from an awful fright
im not even in my bed
who was just inside my head

Im waiting for the fog at night
and the silver moon shining bright
red and yellow brown than dead
i'll lay my demons down to bed
i'll torch that bed but i wont run
can't hide from all i done
the past still singing lullabies
I still hear the screams at night
Track Name: Lovers
Lovers

This town is full of lovers
one little slip and the truth discovered
where theres on theres always others
the shameless spies keep their cover

Am i dreaming
or am i scheming
i touched your heart now
i'm looking for a way out

Fight and fight but at least we're trying
tell them we're living when we're only dying
please stop this baby from crying
while i prey dead rabbits stop multiplying

Am i dreaming
or am i scheming
i touched your heart now
im looking for a way out

Am i dreaming
or am i scheming
i stole your heart now
im looking for a way out

You wanted to talk so fucking listen
always set to the purpose i'll run your mission
are you surprised by my condition
don't blame me when i go missing

Am i dreaming
or am i scheming
i stole your heart now
i'm looking for a way out

Try as i might destined to never fly
still i will try till the very day i die

Try as i might destined to nevr fly
still i will try till the very day i die
till the very day i die
till the very day i die
Track Name: Son Up Son Down
Son up Son Down

I don't feel the heart in your chest
you won't let me feel the one in your stomach
life born from mistakes we've maid and
there's no way that we can hide it
now theres a lump in my throat
that i can't seem to swallow
always so tired and cold
my soul was so quick to follow
my blues eyes hurt terrible
yet i see things so clearly
you couldn't stand to be alone
the only reason i ever heard you moan

So you say that you want to leave
I would call that a retreat
why would you ever fight and stay
when giving up is so easy
ive been trying hard not to run
all i did was burn under the sun
now the moon simpiliy waves goodbye
and those cruel stars came to watch me die
now the wind whispers a name
the voice in my head dosn't hear the same
hears to you who know my shame
i'm still trying to find where to place the blame

Was it you or was it her
you share the name I curse
I saw the same damn eyes
fooled second time around
i'll get it right
my heart was not spilt in two
only pieces when I met you
and now that you see the truth
separated like we we're meant to
but together we maid a new
the best of me and of you
every time you see his
bright shinging eyes i hope
you will only ever see mine
Track Name: The Woods
The Woods

Watch the clueless son cower than hide
as his lover controls the night
the stars come out one by one
full of jealousy and resentment
that their time is already done

I lay and wonder

Every single day they try to rattle my cage
but birds still can fly with broken legs
how i take my pain away shouldn't affect any of your days
if the owl hunts at night can the early bird fill his plate

I lay and wonder
while i wait for slumber

Snakes from the grass always seem to slither my way
wolves free from the woods come out just to play
I can't find a safe place not even in my den
knock knock knock knock knock who's that evil come on in

I lay and wonder
while I wait for slumber
just how many others
trust no love from another
Track Name: Old Man
Old Man

Do you see that old man walking
do you see that old man walking
he's got a crooked smile to match his spine
a fat cheap cigar and a bottle of wine

Well i'm not judging
no i've just been watching
i can't help notice that his face looks like mine
will i ever be like that in time

I hope no
I hope no
I hope no
I hope no

I was on the seawall
when i saw that rat crawl
he wanted to give me a piece of his mind
I said thats just fine i'm just killing time

He told me his story
than i told him mine
the shocking similarities travelled down my spine
and if i'm not careful this life could be mine

I hope no
I hope no
I hope no
I hope no

I feel the walls always watching
and some day they'll say something
the day they break their silence is the day that I die
i'll slit my own wrists before the news hits out side

The old man is at the news stand
the morning paper in his hand
as the obituaries cross his eyes
he said this young dead man had a smile like mine

Do you see that old man walking
do you see that old man walking
he has a crooked smile to match his spine
a fat cheap cigar and a bottle of wine

Do you see that old man walking
do you see that old man walking
he has a crooked smile to match his spine
a fat cheap cigar and a bottle of wine
Track Name: Hunting
Hunting

I know how far i would go just to escape
my face frost hid away not enough to hide my shame
memories hunting me, Elmer Fudd chasing bunnies
I'll still beg you please don't take pity on me, don't take pity on me

As hard as I tried I could not keep the fire alive I even pushed inside all the things that I wanted for my life I was never first, broken hearts and purse cupid struck me with this curse I won't waste my time this life is mine and one day i'll be fine , one day i'll be fine

They win when i suffer so i'll show them all that i won't
my voice a deadly weapon that i'll use to slit your throat
no faces and no names the last promise i'll send your way
these days all that remains is a small trace i'll burn away, a small trace i'll burn away

Love is just a lie that some choose to believe
my skin is covered in nothing more than fantasy
love for me shattered dreams should i suffer just to be happy
I won't forget the day i had that french girl say I can see my self in your eyes, I can see my self in your eyes
