Track Name: Sagittarius Penned
Find myself wondering if you lay by my side
would all my darks turn light again, make truths of my lies

Oh Oh Oh, Sagittarius penned, Oh Oh Oh Oh, never do it again

Distance gained seemed awfully lonely when I laid on my side.
Forced perspective the world seen sideways discomfort is mine.
Snd I wont relay everything i've done to you, won't say everything I wanted to, hear my words their true intent, consider us done sagittarius penned.

Oh Oh Oh, Sagittarius penned, Oh Oh Oh Oh, never do it again, Oh Oh Oh Oh, sagittarius penned, oh oh oh oh.

Faith in crisis, after life is, holding onto the signs. Fantasy turned tragedy.
I know there will be quiet, I know there will be quiet, I know their will be quiet in our lives.
Track Name: After Love
The sound of your breath,
Chills me to death.
Laying in the crypts awaiting you.

Between and bone and stone,
I make it my home.
Decorated with regrets of acts past due.

Nothing's at stake,
No love and no hate.
A line in a script, until you move.

You can skip ahead,
Just don't tell me how it ends.
I'd rather be the hangman than the noose.

All our lives!
What happens after love?
What happens after us?
All our lives!
All our lives!
What happens after love? What happens after us?

The love that we fake,
was our last mistake,
feeling alone when I'm with you.

Put me underground,
and I won't make a sound.
Till death, or drunk, or what we never knew.

No I don't want to wait, want to wish, have to scrape...

All our lives!
What happens after love?
What happens after us?
All our lives!
All our lives!
What happens after love? What happens after us?
Track Name: From the Outside
If you look at it this way you’ll see a view from inside
If we look at their way that view becomes quite obscured
Follow my lead say what they need

Why can’t you see inside my thoughts inside my heart, inside of me?
Why can’t they see all of you in me?
Why can’t they have what they want what they know what they're sure they see, why can’t you give all of you to me?

If we look at it your way, then maybe we could understand. What it's like to be famous to be the one always in demand. We follow your lead, You say what you please.

Looking in from the outside it's impossible to find a way to cure this all.
So their advice should be shattered.
Because they’ll never know what it's like,
No they'll never no what it's like inside....

Why can’t you see inside my thoughts inside my heart, inside of me? Why can’t they see all of you in me?

Why can’t they have what they want what they know what they're sure they see, Why can’t you give all of you to me?
Track Name: Everything's Frightening
A women said you don't depress the rain slides off the roof
you must see like like a lemonade on a sunny afternoon
when a thousand drops of water slowly build a stream
everything becomes scary, everything frightening.

I've been determined for years doesn't seem like so long.
I'm drifting on poetry, I'm trippin on a song
When I got back home I finally knew I'd been gone
Everything became tarnished, my mind, was wrong.

A penny whistle salute to the man of the hour
Shout a hurray he's brought back all our dreams
Don't let him leave he's just what we need
He'll carry us through sinking underneath
A penny whistle salute to the man of the hour

I can feel the desolate space before time
with eyes like painting they're fixed on the wine,
that goes down quick but sluggishly wears away
It's here when I need it it's here, everyday.

Somethings pain and some things elate
some bring love and some bring hate
the billboard built high watches me
a slip of my tongue would be the end of me.

A penny whistle salute to the man of the hour
Shout a hurray he's brought back all our dreams
Don't let him leave he's just what we need
He'll carry us through sinking underneath
A penny whistle salute to the man of the hour
Track Name: Part of Me
Running on those busy city sidewalks
listening to the music you are fond of
All in sync with the rhythm of my stride

A faster pace now following the footsteps of businessmen
Faces full of tension
Showing the marks of age from time

And I feel that I am free
From this life that’s surrounding me
For a moment I can be
A part of you and you a part of me

I grow less intrigued by little side notes
I’m wanting more with each and every morsel
Craving attention that can’t be described

I wake each morning song birds out my window
Singing all the words but not the right tune
I seek your memory to shield their cries

And I feel that I am free from this life that’s surrounding me
For a moment I can be
A part of you and you a part of me

Hopes in time will linger with our passion
Fall insync in fairytale fashion
Don’t wake me from the new day dream of mine
