St. Mary 03:29
St. Mary come and stay with me With outstretched hands delivering The time you spent meant a lot to me You're the self fulfilling prophecy An I've been on the wrong side of this life in my mind And you shine your light on what's right in my life And I didn't mean to frighten you  With looks that took without meaning to And I came to believe in you Your eyes told me the truth An I've been on the wrong side of this life in my mind And you shine your light on what's right in my life It's in your hands now St. Mary come and stay with me With outstretched hands delivering The time you spent meant a lot to me You're the self fulfilling prophecy An I've been on the wrong side of this life in my mind And you shine your light on what's right in my life

When our friendship became toxic oh I don't know There were two sides but neither one spoke oh no When you decide you've got nothing left to hide I'll want to know Cause it's hard to believe I was the seed of your.. When you said you've been a bad friend I know what you mean Cause under the surface lurks much more than this of that I'm sure When you decide you've got nothing left to hide I'll want to know Cause it's hard to believe I was the seed of your unhappiness

I have taken steps and measures To pray to charcoal heather Saw her in a vision and a dream When she speaks to me of harmony A life of tragedy remembers me And empathy washes away Oh won't you be in a scene of my dreams I have seen in a dream You thought you could hide behind a hard stare An icy glare that left you gazing from your window to no one Did you intend to shock me in revelry A change in scenery would be best for me right now Oh I won't hurt you but I want to see you bleached by the sun May it rain down on you till it haunts you Those you sent away have their day  Oh won't you be in a scene of my dreams I have seen in a dream May it rain down on you till it haunts you Those you sent away have their day

Half Life 02:25
Live my life with ups and downs there's no middle ground I've had your share and you've had all all that you can bear You wait  you're gray you watched it pass you by and that was ok I didn't wake up one day and say I'll piss my life away I'm waiting for a moment to call my own isolation prone You wait  you're gray you watched it pass you by and that was ok You wake afraid what you feel is not real it's in your head Live my life with ups and downs there's no middle ground I've had your share and you've had all all that you can bear You wait  you're gray you watched it pass you by and that was ok You wake afraid what you feel is not real it's in your head What you feel is not real it's in your head What you feel is not real it's in your head

Your enemies were your friends They left you on your own then you made your own It's simple can't you they want to bury me it's simple can't you see And I know her and I know her  And after a while a while I saw it in your smile there was no one there I saw it in your stare more than you can bare so you turned within And I know her and I know her  Many more of those you'll have an overdose many more of those  What I couldn't see right in front of me what I couldn't see The enemy you know is always better so better left alone What I didn't know what you couldn't show your world was within Many more of those you'll have an overdose many more of those  What I couldn't see right in front of me what I couldn't see

Don't want to be you don't want to see you Document this man You said you carried me Had to hold my hand I got away I got away or so it seemed But the academy put a knife in me I bought the lies looked right in their eyes I could not see it then behind the curtain Now I know the plan I see your hidden hand Drown me with layers of paper you buried me And I couldn't see the forest from the trees When they were done you didn't recognize me I saw through lies looked behind her eyes There was nothing there just greed in her glare

After a while I could not smile it away I had to call you on it but then I couldn't stay We have a place for you it's off the path  It's down range and you won't feel the pain of the blast It's so lonely I don't want to stay It's so lonely I don't want to Manic man with my life in his hands in his hands He will crush me cause he can he can I won't be you casualty no no no no I'm set free of caustic energy at last Wave your hands and wipe the slate clean Take them from my neck or won't you please Wave your hands and wipe the slate clean Take them from my neck or won't you please

The freak emerged from the tree line rainbow hair and shifting eyes And that was all by design every move was sublime Told myself to change still the same Days grow long the sun is on it's way And you were all in my head and I don't want you there And this time I'm in over head Told myself to change still the same Days grow long the sun is on it's way I know have to learn the system know I can know I can I will have to hide the anger know I can I'll try hard I'll try hard Told myself to change still the same Days grow long the sun is on it's way

I'll staple gun you to the floor if that is what you're looking for It's the awkward places that I fear it's the quiet parts that we must fill And I know her and she knows me I've been waiting patiently Showed my hand now you show me We are feet wet and obsolete awaiting our return to the deep And my post war paint is peeling and my rusty sides are leaking  I grew up on railroad tracks and I threw rocks to help relax But the trains threw them right back threw them back at me I'll staple gun you to the floor if that is what you're looking for It's the awkward places that I fear it's the quiet parts that we must fill And I know her and she knows me I've been waiting patiently Showed my hand now you show me show your hand to me

F.E.A.R. 04:12
I THINK I HOLD THE REINS YOU TAKE THEM BACK AND THEN THEY WERE YOURS ALL ALONG NEVER HAD THEM AT ALL   USED TO BE I’D RUN AWAY AND YOU THINK I’D KNOW BY NOW THAT I NEVER HAD THE POWER   AND YOU CAN’T HEAL YOURSELF AND THERE’S NO ONE TO TELL THAT WAKING UP’S IS HELL YOU CAN’T UNRING THE BELL   USED TO BE I’D RUN AWAY AND YOU THINK I’D KNOW BY NOW THAT I NEVER HAD THE POWER   YOU HIT IT ON THE HEAD WHEN YOU TOLD ME YOU SAID THAT NOTHING IS FAIR IT WAS COMFORTING TO HEAR   USED TO BE I’D RUN AWAY AND YOU THINK I’D KNOW BY NOW THAT I NEVER HAD THE POWER AND I CAN’T HELP MYSELF AND I CAN’T HEAL MYSELF

Get Small 02:53
I see your heart in mine love I know I share the blame Desperate times for all now patience was her name Get small get small Said yourself it's hard out I know I had to change Restless minds will fall out hold on to the shame and  Get small now get small Get small now get small Endless scrapes to extricate me from What will I do when I'm on my own Will I know which way to go will I know Will I know I know
