Track Name: Intro
i was lost before I knew it
and thats the truth
you were good at causing trouble
between me and you
but you don't know how hard I tried how much I lied to myself to get here
and every time I think of you it leaves a hole where my heart is

cause Im
living away from my life
from love yes I learned to lie
and you don't even know where you made me go
bring it back to the intro

snakes
slithered slowly, across our path
forsake
everything you did in our past
as if that was the simplest task I broke my back and body for lust
to live inside another's mind away from pain oh what I'd do

cause im
living away from my life
from love yes I learned to lie
and you don't even know where you made me go
bring it back to the intro
Track Name: Stand Still
When gold bleeds
you know you won't be
standing next to me

When darkness falls
you know I won't be
Next to you at all

You know were at a
stand still
You know were at a
stand still

What did I see
whenever you were
closer to me

I was so blind
every time I looked into
those eyes

You know were at a
stand still
You know were at a
stand still

I'm sick of all these words
they don't mean nothing they just hurt
and yeah everybody needs someone to laugh with
when they're falling down
and I'll be right beside you
when you fall down and you hit the ground
and you'll be right beside me
when the world we live in come crashing down

And we're no longer at a
stand still
no we're not
at a stand still
Track Name: Mischief
There has not been a day
When I don't think about your name
All the time every time every night

Even when I would ache
Oh my heart you would break
All the time every time with a smile

So don't tell me that I mean the world to you
Cause if I did your world would be crumbling too
And I don't need the heartbreak or the lies
Cause I'm in love with the mischief in her eyes

Oh the way that you lie
How it does compromise
Oh the way you say you love me so

And the way that you move
Why you got to be so damn smooth
Oh I got you on my mind

So don't tell me that I mean the world to you
Cause if I did your world would be crumbling too
And I don't need the heartbreak or the lies
Cause I'm in love with the mischief in her eyes

So won't you tell me the truth
Cause we both know I'm already losing you
And why do you build your walls so high?
Is it so you won't get hurt by yet another yet another goodbye
Track Name: Yahtzee
i am lost
In a sea of doubt looking
for the truth

is there anything in this life that we're really
supposed to do

and I'm falling,
slowly, but without a doubt

racing the tale of time til i eventually fall out

in a war with myself
what's the use of another's help
if i'm looking like a fool, oh there's nothing left to do
if life's playing yahtzee with me

when you're lost, doors closing in, hearts breaking
and you know what's worth fighting for til you overflow
then you go out of the world, where everything's coming to close
then you breathe out, your tale and mine til you explode

you gotta know gotta know where to go where to go who to show
before you go
and hurt yourself
cause i've fallin before who's to say i won't fall again
cause i'm falling for you
Track Name: Silver Queen
Oh I know what you're looking for
But you ain't gon' find that in me
Oh I know I've been down this road before
It's not what you're used to or won't you believe

That the sun only shines when it has to
Never in between
And the moon's the only light through the darkness
And you, oh baby you, you're my Silver Queen

Oh I'm sensing some, Deja Vu
Is it only me, or can you feel it too?
Oh I feel you, I feel you closing in
Can I be forgiven for my gentle sin?

Cause the sun only shines when it has to
Never in between
And the moon's the only light through the darkness
And you, oh baby you, you're my Silver Queen

Oh the sun only shines when it has to
Never in between
And the moon's the only light through the darkness
And you, oh baby you, you're my Silver Queen
Track Name: Dark Side
I was born on the dark side of the moon
Or so I've been told
But when it comes to you
My common sense just walks out the door
You know what it's like?
Living with a heartbreak or two
But you didn't break my heart
You swallowed it with blue

Oh I see fire I see smoke
All around round
Burning higher Kingdoms broke
By the sound
Of a heart being broken
A healthy love choking in time
I see my world burning Down

I made a deal with the devil
Hoping for, you in return
You were the world to me
Oh of that yes I was sure
You broke me down
No I have no ice for that burn
Cause when it comes to a broken soul
There is no cure

Oh I see fire I see smoke
All around round
Burning higher Kingdoms broke
By the sound
Of a heart being broken
A healthy love choking in time
Oh I see my world burning down

Oh I see fire I see smoke
All around round
Burning higher Kingdoms broke
By the sound
Of a heart being broken
A healthy love choking in time
I see my world burning down
Track Name: Far From the End
high, on disbelief
ever so, low on ecstasy
broken and cracked are the corners of my mind
darkness it shades the passing of time

my footsteps, they will fade
my voice is lost within the rain
yes I may lose my grip on reality
but how am I to, hold on to whats breaking me down

well I don't wanna know
whats waiting for me
well I don't wanna know
if theres nothing on the other side
well I don't wanna know
what she was looking for when she found me
well I don't wanna know
anymore, anymore

the thought alone is killing me
darkness for an eternity
sleeplessly dreaming away the time
when will I wake, from this nightmare that threatens me

well I don't wanna know
whats waiting for me
well I don't wanna know
if theres nothing on the other side
well I don't wanna know
what she was looking for when she found me
no I don't wanna know
anymore, anymore

im far far away from the end
