Track Name: Down Time
You talk in ways
you never think twice
and all your own
Give the greatest advice

If some way I could
Then someday I
Would make every single word
Spoken…good

Then all these lies
I conceived would die
And give me some time
To take control of my life

All alone
One man can dream
But one man alone
Cannot fulfill what he needs

I thought this time
I’d done everything right
I passed all I’ve known
from the fool on my right

When all I had shown
Is any fool can seem wise
I just need some time
To take control of my life.
Track Name: Fairy Tale Pen
a stroke from my pen
heals all that i can't
the lump in my throat dies
when my eyes close

a love begins
from a kiss
in an ageless font
sealed in blood
and i'll have, all at once
healed everything i've ever suffered from

i'll form the wings
as i form the phrase
a thought that i can finish each day
the sound from my lungs
will pour out like rain
and write all the stories
alive in my fairytale pen
and
i won't have to think
of finding love
cause i'm in love
this heart will never need
another to beat

the stroke from my pen
heals all that I can’t
the stroke from my pen
is all that I am.
Track Name: In The Girl
I fell asleep into an old, stale dream
About how I’ve forgotten my worth in words
And I kept on feeling
The crime of low self-esteem
let me wondering if all that is good
Would keep me breathing

Then I woke up inside a girl
And she opened my mind
To feel more like a man
And I suppose I have
I suppose

I fell into dream on my own two feet
Then wandered around
And saw what was love
For what it really means
A time of selfish strings
That pulled me apart
Then pulled me straight from believing

Then I woke up inside the girl
And she opened my mind to be
More of a man
And I suppose I have
I suppose I have…

The next time I awake from a dream
The next time I awake I just want to see love
So the next time I sleep, I see you
I see you there with me..

Then I woke up inside the girl
And she opened my mind to be
More of a man
And I suppose I am
I suppose I am
A better man…
Track Name: Mr. Run on
mr run-on
won’t you give me a hand?
mr run-on
won’t you lend me a hand?

you see i’m writing to say
all too many things
all un spoken
for all the beautiful dreams
i’ve layed down
would never have existed if
you were not around

mr run-on
won’t you give me a hand?

if you’re my muse, then words will know
and they will never leave me silent
if we imagine,
just in case
that we have only just this once..to breathe

cause if i don’t write
than all i am will die
it might not save my life
but at least i’ll know
i’ve found again
a sound mind and soul..

mr run- on
won’t you give me a hand?
won’t you give me a hand?
won’t you save me?
Track Name: Becoming
i see long lies gathering
all I would not conquer
and even though i’m lost
at seeing what you have taught/being the one you want
i am becoming
i am becoming

once i called her my own mistress
of love, light and virtue
but with each and every fault
i conformed then lost her
to our time becoming
all around
it was all around us


i see in what is lost, is now gathering
all i’ve ever offered
it’s/she’s all around
it’s all around us
Track Name: Blindside
an instant high
lifts your hands above
then takes your innocence
and turns, turns you up-side down
then empty eyes will hurry the crime
can’t you find what it means to be alive..at all?

the real time ghost gives
an all time lie
it fakes all that it feels
into your real life
and the time gone
the time gone is an easy whore of thought
when you turn your blind side on

but don’t you worry
your sight will come again

A heavy heart can fall on any man
and all you’ve thought was thrown away
can come back again

don’t you worry
your time will come my friend
don’t you worry
your sight will come again

A heavy heart can fall on any man
don’t you worry
your sight will come again
Track Name: Bloom
Stop if you’ve heard
This verse before..
The one about the reason why everything
Happens the way it was meant to
Because most take you where
Things are good
But some others leave you nowhere
In places you shouldn’t dare to go

So stop if you don’t wanna wait for
What’s been waiting for you
It’s so loud in front of you

All my color,
It’ll always be in bloom
It’ll always keep blooming here
As long as you see me
Right in front of you

So go
If you don’t look too far
See into the many things
That makes you the dream you are
There are so many seasons
And so many fairytales
That keep us inching forward
Into this dream they all call LOVE

So stop
If you don’t wanna wait for
What’s been waiting for you
That’s so loud in front of you
And so impossible..
My love
It will always be blooming
It will always be blooming here
As long as you see it
When it’s right in front of you
Love, it will always be in bloom
As long as you see it
When I’m right in front of you.
Track Name: I WIll Miss You This Halloween
I can’t sit here unbothered
and watch the world change
i’ll hop a train
and leave fear for a few more days.
the time alone
the time finds me nowhere, but inside a stone
that i need to throw
to break all we should have just let go of.
I will miss you this Halloween
I will miss you to get over myself.

There’s some of us in love
and some of us keep holding out
and if you wanted it to be more
then pack your worst up
and never uncover them
there was so much here
so much here
i can only hope
that every season kept
will bring me closer
and draw me open to feel everything
and you’re everything...
I will miss you this Halloween
when the dead leaves fall
a new feeling is springing up
I will miss you this Halloween
when the dead leaves fall
a new season is feeling though
i will miss you
i will miss you

i miss all
i know in you
i will miss you
i will miss you...
