Track Name: Home
Is there more to change?
You can’t with words
Or without more hurt.

There’s more to this
Than what you’ve left,
And who you stand with…
Who you stand with.

No one else should know,
And there’s nowhere else to go
But where you call home.

Is there more to take
From what she holds
Since every wish has shed
Imposed accidents,
Ungracious cries,
And insincere waves goodbye…
Insincere waves goodbye.

No one else should know,
And there’s nowhere else to go
But where you call home.

If you ignore me, I might-
If only to fight
Or to see you tonight.

Spend this fortune
On hate and lies
While interests wait in line...
Interests wait in line.

No one else should know,
And there’s nowhere else to go
But where you call home.
Track Name: Is As If
If this is the reason,
I’d rather not know;
And if this is leaving,
Then I don’t want to go.

My heart is pleading
For all that it hopes,
But you don’t believe me.
Is that what this is for?

Well, if this is needing,
Then I don’t want more;
And if this is breathing,
Then I’ll go ahead and choke.

My conscience is reeling
From all that it knows,
And no one believes me
As to what this is for.

You cover your ears from the screams
That no one else seems to hear.

My heart is bleeding
All of its hope,
And I might believe me
If that’s what this is for.
Track Name: Bye
By your side
I’ll stay,
Away from their side
Of dreams and faith-
Separate ties
To separate sides
To all now trying to say,

Bye

Bide your time;
It interferes.
Waste your time,
And it disappears.
Selfless tries
Go restless sighs.
I’m trying to say,

Bye

Don’t turn your head away
When it’s time.
There must be better ways
Than in doubt.

It’s been ten years
Gathering change.
Not much more
You’d think to make.
Don’t you bother warning me
After I’ve already said,

Bye
Track Name: Cornered
Cornered yourself with beliefs.
Said if I needed to I-
I could get out of this,
Then lined your pride with fear.

Gone around again and a bit weary,
And she said instead I should-
I should be leaving here.
Then, stride by stride,
Walking away.

Caution is all she can take from here,
Losing all she thought she believed.
Starving yourself of relief,
And with each turn it seems
You can’t shake this free.
Then stride by stride
I’m walking away.
I’m walking away.
Track Name: Honor on the Run
Holding what could be said,
And you wrap it in
A nod and a grin-
I’ll cover for you again

Teasing your friends
And telling them what a pleasure it’s been-
I covered for you again

Misguided, and honor is on the run,
Discouraging all of the years that go by.
Shine on the promises,
Knowing that intentions will fade-
I’ll cover for you again.

Armed with apologies,
Offerings drenched in distain-
And I covered for you again

Misguided, and honor is on the run,
Discouraging all of the years that go by.

Enduring contradictions,
Forgiving all who listen to me-
Why then are you covering for me?
Waiting for the day
When I can be honest with me
And not cover for me again.
Track Name: Try
This could be what I had dreamed,
Never really knowing what worth stood to mean.
Planted fears grow steadily,
Flowering of reasoning’s misery.

I will try.
I will try.

Carefully breaking me,
Shattering the pieces that I’d like to keep.
Memories all too clear,
Trying only to betray what I fear.

I will try.
I will try.

This is all I want for you now -
Knowing I will be okay somehow.

Whether I…I knew or lied,
Always wanted to believe, painless or not.
Empty, my attempt to stop
Giving in and only to be left with trying.

I will try.
I will try.
I will try.
I will try.
Track Name: Where From Here
Find yourself in belief
Of all that you hear,
Temporary sympathy of all
these careless deeds.

You can say it’s me;
Won’t you say it’s me?
Now that it’s me –
Now that it’s me,
Where from here?

Blind myself from me
So I…I might see.
Careful, I can still see.
Careful with me.

You can say it’s me.
Won’t you say it’s me?
Now that it’s me -
Now that it’s me,
Where from here?

You can say it’s me.
Won’t you say it’s me?
Now that it’s me -
Now that it’s me,
Where from here?
Where from here?
Where from here?
Where from here?
