Track Name: What You Would Hear
He follows never leads himself though
He swallows everything they're feeding you
He doesn't know if she'll be there tomorrow
It happens everytime he starts to feel new

This is what you would hear if you were there
I am what you could be if you could care about this or something other than nothing
It is what it is, always has been for me

A phaser, self annihilator
You crave whatever's in your rear view
No pain or rain it's just all one in the same
I did it all in vein now you need to know that

This is what you would hear if you were there
I am what you could be if you could care about this or something other than nothing
It is what it is, always has been for me

It's for you and I
Track Name: Highway Lights
You couldn't fix the family
No point to even try, you say they won't understand me
Or half the reasons why
You don't come around anymore
Live to feed a lie, you're never getting what you're paying for
A blinding light tonight

He's being all that he can be
They say they're doing fine
The pressure we put is damning
The need to feel alive

A dream inside a dream tonight

Your life is sunlight shining through the window
Then it's headlights crashing through your car door
Were you alive that night you died?
Tell me if I go don't make my life a lie

You get the call from a pay phone
Where will he go now?
She asks her dad when he gets home
He said he's no longer around
There's no way to feel now
The sound is ringing out, a travesty in your hometown
This dream won't settle down
Track Name: Electricity Is Humming
Drive around the town to all the places I remember screaming out your name to no reply. Were you really there or is this all a dream? I'm in between a world I knew and what I think

Sometimes it's best to just give up the fight
Cause some thing should never ever be made right
I wrote a chapter in your book of life
I never read another word inside

Floating
Mom wakes her up in the morning

Feeling
Like he's been here before today
If she's danger he will find her there
A different time, a different place, a different year
He'll never know how much it takes a toll on him
To never know now what was real or what he dreamt

Floating
In and out of reality
Screaming
Echoes her room for eternity
Track Name: Swim In Time
Where do I, find the time
That was lost, it was mine
All my friends don't recognize
Me anymore, that's the price

Drive around
I'm not having fun now
We're all just unfound
Beautiful ghost town


Who do I, feel like inside?
What you see is what you'll find
Swim in time, fight the tides
All you are is a state of mind

Its shame, you love the pain
It's not game, you wanna play
I paid my dues, unlike you
I saw it though, my point to prove

Head down
It's all just too loud
I can't think straight now
I faked myself out

He should call his mom
When something's wrong
He's ticking now
Just like a bomb
His dad's at home
Missing his son
Just waiting by
The telephone



Leaving home, so long to all my friends and foes
Running from those songs, I feel it come and go
Holding on, she knows, I need to feed my soul
Beating strong, heart won't
I can't just wait for the end to come
