Track Name: Time To Move On
To see it in you is to see it in me
Like a snake in the grass waiting patiently
To keep on this life or to check the dial

Tied up in my head with my heart in a knot
Too many moments lingering to be forgot
Throw away the pity and hold that thought

It’s time to move on
Yeah it’s time to stand up
Take the love that I’ve made
Give it all to you
Give it all to you
Yeah it’s time to move on
Yeah it’s time to move on

To see it in you is to see it in me
Like a snake in the grass waiting patiently
To keep on this life or to check the dial

Yeah it’s time to move on
Track Name: Jade Lights
Dusk falls on the city
Knee high boots march on
Slush filled with old habits
Lies built for King Kong
Pull me through the jade lights
Tell me how far gone you are, you are

I can’t keep trying to forget it
But tonight I don’t want to be alone
And I can’t keep fighting to admit it
That tonight I just don’t want to be alone

Sidewalks jammed like freeways
Blonde hair gray from fog
Laughter bites the chilled air
Empty of a song
Meet me through the jade lights
Show me how far gone we are, we are

I can’t keep trying to forget it
But tonight I don’t want to be alone
And I can’t keep fighting to admit it
That tonight I just don’t want to be alone

Take it down
Lovers and mourners
Take it down
From pain to pain comes a big smile again
Free

Come searching for me
Feel something so right
Come searching for me
Feel something so right
Come searching for me
Feel something so right
Come searching for me
Feel something so right
Feel something so right
Feel something so right
Feel something so right
Feel something so right

I can’t keep trying to forget it
But tonight I don’t want to be alone
Feel something so right
And I can’t keep fighting to admit it
That tonight I just don’t want to be alone
Feel something so right
I can’t keep trying to forget it
But tonight I don’t want to be alone
Feel something so right
And I can’t keep fighting to admit it
That tonight I just don’t want to be alone
Track Name: Alluring Bedlamite
Study the silhouette
Further the element
Tip off the rocking chair
Simmer the berry rare

Anywhere, anytime, they will fall for you
Crazed and dreamy eyed

Blood on my hands
Blood on my hands
Blood on my hands
Blood on my

Trigger happiness
Suffers consequence
There’s something on my mind
Alluring Bedlamite

Anywhere, anytime, they will fall for you
Crazed and dreamy eyed

Blood on my hands
Blood on my hands
Blood on my hands

Anywhere, anytime, they will fall for you
Crazed and dreamy eyed

Blood on my hands
Blood on my hands
Blood on my hands
Blood on my

Anywhere, anytime, they will fall for you
Crazed and dreamy eyed

Blood on my hands
Blood on my hands
Blood on my hands
Blood on my hands
Blood on my hands
Blood on my hands
Blood on my hands
Track Name: Stained Glass Saint
Stained Glass Saint
Look down on me
Hold my head
Inside you’ll see that…

Timeless, the moments that we face
Someone was right here in this place
The world will turn and has before
Here will somebody stand once more

Sun shines through
The reds and blues
Share your light
Help me feel right that…

Timeless, the moments that we face
Someone was right here in this place
The world will turn and has before
Here will somebody stand once more

Timeless, the moments that we face
Someone was right here in this place
The world will turn and has before
Here will somebody stand once more
Here will somebody stand once more
Here will somebody stand once more
Track Name: Loaded Situation
Keep it up
Been moving down the right path
No time to take a look back
You got to do it in your own way

Keep it up
Stronger than a locomotive
With the situation loaded
You got a step ahead the next one

Running to a place where nobody can find me
Move into a place where you let the whole world see
So keep it, keep it, keep it moving forward
Fantasy is real when you’re writing your own words

Keep it up
Flying higher than a jet plane
To you it’s all the same
Ride it out a little more now

Keep it up
Almost made it to the summit
Above it all you feel it coming
A little bit of satisfaction

Running to a place where nobody can find me
Move into a place where you let the whole world see
So keep it, keep it, keep it moving forward
Fantasy is real when you’re writing your own words
Track Name: Hope Fades
When I feel the premonition
The wind dances with the leaves
Left the fire out burning
Under the northern stars
Never knowing what it looks like
It takes on another form
Is it miles and miles away now
Or in my own backyard

And I lay awake hope fades hope fades
And I lay awake
And I lay awake hope fades hope fades
And I lay awake

Staring out the screen window
Waiting for a shadow move
Through the records and the woodpile
Surrounded by the band
Leave the porch light on
And the curtains half drawn
Then I have the premonition
Before everything is gone

And I lay awake hope fades hope fades
And I lay awake
And I lay awake hope fades hope fades
And I lay awake

And I lay awake hope fades hope fades
And I lay awake
And I lay awake hope fades hope fades
And I lay awake

And I lay awake hope fades hope fades
And I lay awake
And I lay awake hope fades hope fades
And I lay awake

Then I have the premonition
Before everything is gone
Track Name: Anything But The Answer
Stumbling around to see
Feeling trouble bound
It wasn’t me
Out of my head I’ll say anything
But the answer
The answer

Running from what it seems
Tunnel full of mud
And speedy dreams
Out of my head I’ll say anything
But the answer
The answer

Missing some way to care
I know there is a time
I should be there
Lost without a trace of all
Your love
Your love
Your love
Your love
Your love

Out of my head I’ll say
Track Name: Hiding
For
Your soul
Tell me
What for
We all
Love you
Where did
You go
With those
Whom we
Don’t know

Please stop hiding
With those whom we don’t know
If you can’t be seen then
Please don’t be seen
And stay

Please stop hiding
With those whom we don’t know
If you can’t be seen then
Please don’t be seen
And stay
With me
Track Name: Tell That Some
There comes a time
When the light
Can’t be seen without the smoke
And the night
Wouldn’t dance
If the morning never broke

Tell that some farewell
Lift it off yourself

On the tail
Of the rain
Lives a spirit wild and free
In her wake
Radiance
Leaves a conscience less heavy

Tell that some farewell
Lift it off yourself

Falling down
There’s an answer right through it
Falling down
There’s an answer right through it
Falling down
There’s an answer right through it
Falling down
There’s an answer right through it

Tell that some farewell
Tell that some farewell
Tell that some farewell
Lift it off yourself

Farewell
Bye now
