1.
Two of us are living at the same time One’s in your mind and one’s on the outside And I want mine to sync up Talent drives far into the night Focus provides a distant light I’m tired of lying about my life I’m so tired of making excuses Two of us are living at the same time One’s in your mind and one’s on the outside (Do the same, yes we do the same on this rollercoaster ride)

Profiles 04:12
What am I waiting for? Someone to take control? Delusions You’ve got to push through What am I waiting for? Someone to give advice? Delusions You’ve got to think twice Pick a side Get off the fence I’ve heard this all before Seen it from all angles Don’t ever stop questioning I’ve become so scatterbrained I can’t tell what’s going up or down Someone set me straight You fit the profile of someone who could do the job Maybe I’m complaining in my reality It’s hard to distinguish when I feel for everyone I had all of these grand plans but they haven’t taken off I sure could use a hand And I’m looking your way Just read my lips (I’m asking for some help) Read my lips (I’m asking for your help) Read my lips (I’m asking for the help) Read my lips What are you waiting for? Someone to take control? Delusions You’ve got to push through What are you waiting for? Someone to give advice? Delusions You’ve got to think twice

Come along for the ride Leave all reservations aside Conquer the world and let go Don’t act surprised if you’ve never tried Every piece of you won’t make it to the end Stop being so concerned on saving them Get excited for new days and new ways to be happy I won’t show that I’m scared Perched on a wire (ready to fall) Expectations looming What will I decide? I know more than what I’m showing What’s with the drama? There’s not much time to think it over Years and years are passing by and it’s getting faster Shady stances and menacing glances cloud my thoughts It could be so much simpler and so much better To step outside and go What’s with all the drama? (I don’t understand) I’ve got a lot of time to think it over (I don’t understand) What’s with the split persona? (I don’t understand) I’ve got a lot of time to think this over

Tell Me 02:52
I'll stand this cloud while coping through the trench I've dug Not sure when to step out from the sky If I wait too long I’ll find out that I’m wrong That you’re gone Can you tell me why you left? Everything you said last night didn’t make any sense Life’s no romantic It’s a systematic cosmic plan you cannot understand I'll stand this cloud while coping through the trench I've dug Not sure when to step out from the sky
5.
Wait a sec They’re coming The moments of your life that shape your entire outlook (Whoa) It’a harder than it looks (Whoa) To keep a clear head Accept things that aren’t in your hands Project nothing but the best Don’t let fear lead the way Justify your day It’s harder than it looks to keep a clear head
6.
On TV 03:18
News updates and violent stories Actors in rehab medicating Will that singer make the cut? Don’t change the channel Private lives placed in the spotlight Big shots and jackpots, monsters in disguise We’re vicariously living other people’s lives What’s the way it should be? A manifestation on TV? When will it happen? Is it for me? No way to tell just wait and see Psychos and gossip The latest trending buzz is suffocating everyone Even us It’s sad to admit that we all are hooked Drive fast cars Take a pill Get sucked in and lose free will Call in live until you’re blue The day’s not done until Season Two
7.
Legacies 03:32
Still my same place Still my problems Will I sit here and wait for the end? Oh I know time’s moving fast Cast a line and hook the past Still my same place (Still at my same place) Still my problems (Still have my problems) Will I sit here and wait for the end? The here and now I’ll let it be A bare legacy is staring back at me Give me a push Something to earn I’m so eager to grow and learn I’m up and out So let’s go A shift is needed in the worst way I talk and talk and talk with my insecurities One day I’ll be gone How many promises not kept? No time for analysis One step at a time Keep going Don’t waste this life
8.
Lakeside 03:40
What’s the problem today? What’s the name it’s filed under? Can’t you see it’s micromanaged for a reason? As for me I’ll kill traditions left over from dead times Cold times Dark minds I’ve said this many times before Don’t just assume you’re in control Everyone’s to blame We’re stuck playing this game Your sense of calm spells doom File it all away Make it dissappear Auction off your privacy to feed the system And as for me I’ll keep traditions carried over lifetimes Old times Bright minds Greed and shame hollow out the brain It’s not enough to see it Find a way to beat it Nice and slow is not the way to go It weighs heavy on our hearts
9.
Forbidden fruit I wish I hadn’t taste it For short term games it was not worth it I knew there could be fallout but temptation strips you bare Unwilling to let you reason or let you win It tasted so good I couldn’t help myself I’m not the only whose caved in the face of everything that’s wrong My God, what have I done? Ecstasy holds court Bonds forever changed Too much time has passed to make amends My eyes tell a story of misplaced trust My voice reeks of bold face lies The secret’s out I tried it out and lost huge along the way So huge along the way It’s all around us It’s all about us
10.
It’s time to stop denying It’s time to face the facts I’m missing point blank details And paying the price How much is it up to me I guess? I feel so powerless Good intentions are hurting me I’ve no idea when the smoke clears I’m waiting for things to right themselves It’s on me It’s in me To take in my hands the choices I’ve made And live with them No more looking for outs and the quick fix Chasing scars and losing in this talk of potential A new hope springs up to my surprise I feel like I’ve been here before I can’t say I’m well equipped to deal with a rattled cage The Talk of Potential (Do we even have a clue?)
11.
I felt alone tonight On an island Karma might be real I can’t look back and say I didn’t know Growing old and wise is no guarantee a smart choice is made I can’t look back and say I didn’t know Here we go again My new plan’s in action No new results I can’t look back and say I didn’t know Keeping inner peace is brutally honest Peeling layers back of past and future questions never asked Prior Knowledge carries serious weight Prior Knowledge It carries so much weight
12.
Unruly people My nerves are shot Eight lanes of traffic I need an out Today is bull but when I’m done I’ll be baked in the sun A heated exchange with a psycho neighbor He deserves a right hook Or maybe two? Bad days go away Don’t ruin the sunshine I’m overstressed and full of emptiness But I’ve got a lot to say The coast is calling me to stay here and dream Join me please I could use the company
13.
No Surprise 03:45
No Surprise It blew up in my hands Once again I’ll pick up all the pieces of a failed attempt Oh wait, never mind I never really tried No Surprise I wound up nowhere fast Days go by nothing changes It seems to me that I’m the problem What else is new? It always falls through It’s funny what times does When you’re unsure if you’ll ever let go, let go I’ll never let go Ok now I’ve learned some lessons Took advice and bettered myself It’s turning around I can feel it I hope it stays this way No Surprise It blew up in my hands Once again I’ll pick up all the pieces of a failed attempt Oh wait, never mind I never really tried I’ll never show this side again to anyone (No Surprise it blew up in my hands)
