Track Name: Firing Neurons
Loose from the world,
Now I am floating
The walls they bend with the light that is flowing
The love in your eyes awakes my mind
Dealing with your mind again
Lost without your eyes
Down the drain, down the drain
Floathing down
Streaming rain
Lost without your eyes

Random people in my head
Don't you see, be like me, don't forget
The mental machines in my head
They're working all the time
Firing neurons in my brain
In my brain, floating down the drain
Firing neurons in my brain
They messed me up this time
Track Name: Shorelight
I am lost at sea
Now that Sara's moved away
Took her sacred soul,
Left her perfect memory

And I drift away
Into fog that seems too thick

To see shorelight
Shorelight
Shorelight
Shorelight

Now the rain comes down
And I'm trembling at my feet
As the dirt pilled up
Is drifting out upon the streets
All the pain I hid, fenced away behind these walls
Made the sky turn dark
Burned up all that fueled my heart

I'll be holding still
I'll be waiting here to see

Shorelight
Shorelight
Shorelight
Shorelight

The water surrounds me
And all I see
Are thoughts forming waves
They close me in

As I try to remember
How to swim

How I long to see

Shorelight
Shorelight
Shorelight
Shorelight
Track Name: Some drug to get through the night
You gave me some drug
To get through the night
On my own.
It messed up my brain,
Now things seem so strange while you are gone.

The blood in your eyes
Made me feel
So paranoid, baby.
The flesh seems to rot
Under your skin, baby.

But the air I'm breathing in,
Just
Feels right to me.

You told me you'd go driving outside
to watch the storm.
And gave me some drug to get through the day
While you were gone

As you stood there, in the doorway,
You told me to take just one pill a day

But sometimes
My nerves get out of control, baby.

Because I can't win
I can't win
This fight we're in

The air I'm breathing in,
It once felt right to me
It once felt right to me,

But now you're paralyzing me
Now you're paralyzing me
You are paralyzing me
Track Name: Light & Demons
When your heart gets blocked by all you want
When your soul grows pale and dry
When your thoughts obscure all you try to proof
When you can't come down to earth
When you can't deny all your eyes can see
So you put your trust in lies

I'll be reminding you
Of all that you can never lose

Because though you're lost
I see the light in you
I see the demon too
you try so hard to lose

When you're lost
I see the light in you
But there's a demon too
That needs to walk with you

All you can't accept, all you tear in two, all you judge by wrong and right
At the surface might appear as you
But it's only absent light
I won't take this weight
I won't take these calls
I won't hear your lies

Because when you're lost
I see the light in you
I see the demon too
That you try so hard to loose

When you're lost
I see the light in you
But there's a demon too
He'll need to walk with you
Track Name: No Ending No Beginning
There’s no ending, no begining, no last truth
The signs that I found were of no use
There’s no ending, no beginning, just a stream
A long, indifferent sound I am floathing in

This empty room is where I’ll wait
Until the lines that we have drawn will be dissolved

Mirrors surround me, but still I can’t see my own eyes move
A perfect circle, a worthless struggle, there’s no escape
And it won’t matter where you stand or where you look
Because the lines that we have drawn, will find there way into

You

The clouds will give my tears back to you
The clouds will give my tears back to you
So take them back, take them back into your heart
So take them back, take me back into your heart

You
