V1: Do the willing wander/ away from home/ does the kingdom fracture and diminish to bone With a mind wide open/ and the garden lost/ the future rains waterlogging the costs PC1: And I’m feeling worried/ for the very first time/ I can’t seek mercy/ I can never hide All this pushing/ I think/ Might be my guide….cause C: The unknown is calling/ Its getting me by/ even though I’ve yet to gain sight What is it’s offer/ that I can’t deny/ Is direction and the influence of light Take me to task/ tear me apart if you must/ I can’t ask for more I just need/ I need to see/ what lies beyond that (my) door V2: The snakes will rise/ the floods will come/ and when they do I won’t succumb To the penchant for feeling/ like I must check out/ throw away control and take in my doubt PC2: I’ll chase no death/ and no tragedy/ the limits of strength/ stem from what I might be All this pushing/ just might/ give me eyes that can see C: (Repeat) FC: Oh/ I might wonder at times/ If I’m all I can be It’s not/ a feeling to want/ but it will set you free I’ve got to see/ I’ve got to be/ I’ve got to see what I might be

V1: You say I’m just my fear/ and that there’s more to know And that I must forgo/ all that’s insincere C: But When you say forever/ I try not to think twice/ But when you say forever/ I feel like I might die And when I think about it/ there’s nothing more to want But when I think about it/ Feels like a shady plot So if we stay together/ I’ll try not to think twice But when you say forever/ I feel like I might die V2: You say anxiety/ Is my excuse to run And that we’ve just begun/ this cannot be the end C: But When you say forever/ I try not to think twice/ But when you say forever/ I feel like I might die And when I think about it/ there’s nothing more to want But when I think about it/ Feels like a shady plot So if we stay together/ I’ll try not to think twice But when you say forever/ I feel like I might die

V1: I’ve been sleeping too much/ I can’t see why I should get up I get more dreaming of you/ a view I see with older eyes And just before I wake up/I feel a tinge of comfort That I’m still with you in my dreams It just might be what I need C1: Past me present you/ I can’t tell if I’m living right Or if I ever would/ It feels as though I’m stuck in time And every time I see you/ I wonder if you feel/ the same as me/ or if you’re moving on At least I still have all my songs/ Past me present you V2: In my head I’ve lived/ a gilded cage if there ever was I can have whatever I want/ Interacting with images And still I see it is wrong/ I’ve got to break free Of myself and forced dystrophy It just might be what I need C2: Past me present you/ I can’t tell if I’m living right Or if I ever would/ It feels as though I’m stuck in time And every time I see you/ I wonder if you feel/ the same as me/ or if you’re moving on At least I still have all my songs/ Past me present you B: So despite these feelings/I might find myself with new hope outside fantasy Cause time/ is a funny thing/ Its always pushing you into a brand new day So I say C: Past me present you/ I think I might be catching up With the rest of the world/ getting up and pushing on So next time I see you/ I can be nothing but grateful For time well spent/ and a chance at something new I can’t wait for that day to come/ cause now im present too

Mystique 06:39
V1: It was a moment of anxiety/ that a thought would fall on me A concept of defense/ a persona of mystery Nothing more than silhouette/ here and gone before a moments etched I can claim a space in minds/ without a need to be direct Be direct/ be direct C1: I know/ I’m tangled up in nonsense theory And living a life that way Its just won me/ a few matches and a penchant for burning The bridges that might guide me Away/ from a landscape of fire V2: So it was when time dragged out/ That I would confront some doubts Of what mystique brought me/ and what it’s really all about Cause you don’t really win too much/ when you seek to become Some sort of persona that has no/ value when you’re alone alone/ alone C: [Same] B: I just keep waiting/ for the opposite of what I always aim for/ always aim for/ but honestly How much/ can a heart be out of sync Out of sync with my mind/ out of sync with my mind Its an endless fight V3: So I’d look back to that resolve/ I had taken wishing to evolve Shutting myself in my room with little/ feeling left at all That’s the value of mystery/ living in the periphery There’s nothing there to gain but an empty/ sense of victory From that mystique/ that mystique C: [Same]

The Dawn 04:12
V1: Walking around in the rain/ I feel repaired/ easing up on harmless ways Trading my blues for new reds/ its an escape/ a way to move me from my head So chapters come and they go/ and as they do/ they distill into the shape I know So what am I left to see/ maybe the dawn/ of me as I know C: Taking the time to look back theres/ nothing wrong and nothing new Same old song and it’ll do/ There’s nothing wrong But there must be a way to/ see the joy around the bend It’ll ease me up and never end/ it’ll never end V2: So listen up and listen good/ what do you hear/ is it more than you could Walking around in the rain/ clouded and mad/ and knowing that there’s none to blame So you can take your fearful eyes/ and forget their noise/ discarding all resentful lies So what are you left to see/ maybe the dawn/ of you as you know C: Taking the time to look back theres/ nothing wrong and nothing new Same old song and it’ll do/ There’s nothing wrong But there must be a way to/ see the joy around the bend It’ll ease me up and never end/ it’ll never end
6.
V1: I thought I knew where I was/ But I don’t/ I’ve past this empty place all my life Constants nor risk could save me/ and how could they/ I’ve been derailed for far too long And now I’m feeling strained cause/ I lose track/ Of everything good that comes along So how do I climb out of/ This deep hole/ You know I wish that I knew C: From the/ hands of angels/ a life that has given me peace and prosperity/ alright But it’s/ not that easy/ a judgement is placed on me/ a test of misery/ alright V2: So now I fear I’ve lost/ All my dreams/ I through them all away with the thought Don’t hit on seventeen now/ what’s the chance/ you’re taking home the next four So why’s life keep testing me now/ must I go/ into the wild where there’s more and how will I light/ this deep new hopeful darkness/ you know I wish that i knew Repeat C B: So as those demons fade/ I know my best defense will leave/ me as me/ And I do Final C: Well ever/greens don’t grow/ overnight/ so tell me/ when can I start And treetops/ once grown pierce/ the sky/ freeing...the sun/ shine upon me now
