Track Name: Let It Out
Oh how lonely it is to question
when everybody else has all the answers

So I go along
and I sing a song
and I don’t let
anybody in

Oh how great it must feel to be so sure
When everybody knows we all have questions

But we go along
and we sing a song
and we don’t let
any of it out

Oh how lonely it is to question
When everybody else has all the answers

So we go along
and we sing another song
and we don’t let any of it out

Let it out
Track Name: You've Probably Never Heard This Song
Attempting to create whatever’s
never been derived
Is the most certain way for us
to make a thing contrived

So, Sing your song
And I will sing along
Sing to me
I’ll find the harmony

Imitation is more than flattery
It’s how we must evolve
It’s the most certain way for us
To strengthen our resolve

So, sing your song
And I will sing along
Sing to me
I’ll find the harmony

And even if it’s all been done before
Just dust it off and sing a little more

The Song we sing is all the same
The Song we sing is all the same
The beat which dances in our hearts
Is tugging at its strings
The song we sing is all the same

So, sing our song
And we will sing as one
Sing with me
We’ll sing in harmony
Track Name: Prideful Doormat
I’ll let you blow up
I’ll let you scream
You can abuse me
I won’t say a thing

Patiently I wait for you
To appreciate me for
my humble suffering

Someday you will wake up
And then you will see
It does not get better…

Somehow you will find out
And you will concede
It does not get better…
Better than me.

I’ll be your martyr
Make you my king
You can command me
Demanding anything

Patiently I wait for you
To appreciate me for
My selfless giving

I am just waiting for you to see
I am the best thing
It doesn’t get better than me.
Track Name: The Story of All of Us
Gold is just a mineral
and Love is just a word
Power a position that
Mankind does not deserve

We lie and cheat and steal and kill
our way right to the top
Corrupt the incorruptible
until our efforts can be stopped

Manipulating fear
into every twisted soul
Even though our fears are greater
and our heart were never whole


We lie and cheat and steal and kill
until we get what we deserve
while our prophets slept in gutters
and spread love with every word

manipulating fear
until they strip you from the throne
Captivating power
in the seat, for whom it holds
Track Name: An Investment Proposal
Say, can you see
we're not all right?
A land of the free
is just a state of mind

Call it a dream
I'll call it home
Please, come with me
I just can't go alone

I'd rather die
than live this lie
I'd rather lie
than say we tried

Oh, can you see
what's in my soul?
Cause I see yours
and it's not whole

I'm sure…
It's just a dream
but let's call it home
Please, come with me
I just can't go alone

I'd rather die
than live this lie
I'd rather lie
than say we tried

I guess we'll die…
I guess we'll die trying

I'd rather die
than live this lie
I'd rather lie

I guess we'll die...
Track Name: For the Sake of Singing
I'll never stop singing
even if I’m never heard
as long as I’m breathing
as long as my feet walk this earth

And you may never know my name
and I may never see your face
cause we all have our roles to play
a single stand inside the braid

I may never stop dreaming
even if they don’t come true
as long as I’m bleeding
as long as my heart beats with you

This song’s for you
This song’s for me
A song to sing
A melody
Track Name: Wildest Dreams
I feel alone in my thoughts
I’d like you to join me
When I try to invite (you) avoid me



cause it’s dangerous in here
But it’s exactly what I need
It’s exactly what it is
It’s exactly why I’ll be okay
alright…I’m free

I’m starting to wander
Onto dangerous paths
Every step I take farther
I feel society’s wrath

Cause it’s dangerous out here
But it’s exactly what we need
It’s exactly what it is
And it’s exactly what we’ll be
Okay, alrigh, we’re free

Only in your wildest dreams…you’ll be

So dangerous out there
And it’s exactly what they’ll need
It’s exactly what it is
And that’s exactly why we’ll be…okay
Alright…we’re free

Only in your wildest dreams, you’re free.
Track Name: Verbose (A Word In Edgewise)
I’m listening, but I can’t hear
over the sound of my own voice.
I’d like to say we harmonize,
but I’m just adding to the noise

We’re dining all alone
at a table set for two.
Get a word in edgewise now
if you can make it through

I want to break the silence from
the endless void inside my chest
If only my lips could hold each
other from what they do best

cause we’re dining all alone
at a table set for two.
Get a word in edgewise now
if you can make it through

I string along these words and sounds
that feel so right inside my head
but never bring me peace of mind
just pieces of my mind in shreds

and we’re dining all alone
at a table set for two
get a word in edgewise now
if you can make it….
Track Name: Ink and Paper
I don't want the same recycled answers
I just want to believe in something real
I don't want the same old song and dances
I just want to feel

I just want something real

cause this is only brick and mortar
and this is only bread and wine
this is only ink and paper
all of this to gratify
a simple unfulfilled desire

To whom do we bow?
To You or to ourselves?

cause this is only brink and mortar
this is only bread and wine
this is only ink and paper
but you...

You are alive!
Track Name: Love Never Fails
Sometimes we get angry
Most times don't know why
We're all looking for love
but living a lie

I know we're all broken
and we're hurting like hell
and if broken love is all you can give
then give it cause love never fails

I know you hearts broken
but love never fails
So if broken love is all your heart knows
then just give it all till your heart swells

If you have hurt me
then you must be hurt too
and if you can forgive, then
I forgive too,because….

We are all broken
and we're hurting like hell
but if our broken hearts can forgive
then we have let true love prevail

We will let true love prevail.
