Track Name: Downtown
No thought of repercussion
Selfish people wanting for themselves
They will go through the valley
Only to learn they were wrong

Take the right way
High and mighty
Bright sun shining
Walking downtown

Never though this would come to be
A single life time passing in a flash
What makes you think you can play God to an innocent soul?

Take the right way
High and mighty
Bright sun shining
Walking downtown
Track Name: Keyframe
Power chords through mixing boards
With distortion
Every two minute song
Has the same words
"Please don't leave me alone,
I'm not over you"

Solid state technology
Humming along
Every two minute song
Has the same words

I don't wish you dead
I still have songs to write
All about our love
Or lack there of
Track Name: Greyhound
The sun set hours ago
No city lights to guide me home
But we're getting close
Or so a man can surely hope
And I won't be there for long
But I'll see the face that I forgot
And I'll tell her just to wait
A few more months until I get back

So I'll go home one last time
Just to say my sorries and my goodbyes
And I'm racing the Earth's rotation
Even though I know that I can't win

Cars go too fast
Like dying hearts of speeding souls
They don't carry anyone home
Just strangers trying to be left alone
I'll take the Greyhound home
And as the wheels turn they rock me away
Counting lines on pavement
I'll just see white for the end of my days

So I'll go home one last time
Just to say my sorries and my goodbyes
And I'm racing the Earth's rotation
Even though I know that I can't win
Track Name: Ambedo
I miss you more each day
Like the western shore they come in waves
They are taller than you or I
But just swim away

Please don't walk away
I told you I would stay
You say it's too late
And now you're gone
And now you're gone

I'm sitting in a room of silence
While my leeches suck me lifeless
And the drone of my bedside fan
Fills up the conscience that I don't have

Please don't walk away
I told you I would stay
You say it's too late
And now you're gone
And now you're gone
Track Name: Eternity
There is no going back
Whats done is done
Cracks in the wall

Time is turning
Walls are burning
Take it with you
Through eternity

Try to stop me from stopping you
It won't change anything

Time is turning
Walls are burning
Take it with you
Through eternity
Track Name: Broken
Hold on tightly now
Don't walk away from here

I see other people trying
Walking down the broken road

Look at what you have
It could all disappear

I see other people trying
Walking down the broken road

I see other people trying
Walking down the broken road
Blind is no way to live your life
Open your eyes and see the truth
Track Name: Crack My Head
I stumbled awake from a shallow sea of sleep
And slipped into a halfway dream
Through lightheaded whispers of trees and leaves
And fairy tale murderous screams

I felt lost in a vastness undefined
I saw your face but darling, did you see mine?
You're not looking
You don't care

But it's that
It's what you said
It's in my head
And I'm not over you
But you are over me
And I'm on your street
Would you look at me
If I fell and cracked my head?
Cracked my head
Cracked my head
Cracked my head
Would you look at me
if I fell and cracked my head?
Cracked my head
Track Name: Spare Keys & Broken Knees
Spare keys and broken knees
The distance between you and your casualties
Is in and out of tune with your own frequencies

Love might be a lesson that I cannot learn
But you make me rather burn my tongue
On your lies

Limitless and in between
Sometimes life is lying and is strange and obscene
But seemingly important are your own stupid dreams

Life might be a lesson that I cannot learn
But you make me rather burn my tongue
On your lies

Love might be a lesson that I cannot learn
But you make me rather burn my tongue
On your lies
Track Name: Peachy
I'm fine, it's alright
Sit back, give it time
Don't waste your lies
Tell myself to stay and unwind

I'm fine, it's alright
Done in and worn out
Plug in fuzz and play loud
Tell myself to stay and unwind

I'm faded
I'm jaded
I've evaded your love
With your silhouette
I fall in love

I'm faded
I'm jaded
I've evaded your calls
On this Greyhound bus
I fall in love, again
