Track Name: Rollercoasting
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)
Track Name: Profiles
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
Track Name: On a Wire (Ready to Fall)
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
Track Name: Tell Me
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
Track Name: Your White Flag
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
Track Name: On TV
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
Track Name: Legacies
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
Track Name: Lakeside
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
Track Name: Forbidden Fruit
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
Track Name: Talk of Potential
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?)
Track Name: Prior Knowledge
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
Track Name: Baked in the Sun
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
Track Name: No Surprise
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)
