Track Name: Really Wanna Say
Everyone keeps asking me what it feels like
Asking how I know when it feels right
It's hard to find the words to explain
But it feels like a cause I believe in

Oh no
You're making me feel like I've become
One of those kind of guys, that is not me
I really wanna say, hey wait hold on

It's troubling people can be so trusting
Maybe my shield's a little rusty
I can't take another disgrace
Because it's all wrapped up in this one

Oh no
You're making me feel like I've become
One of those kind of guys, that is not me
I really wanna say, hey wait hold on

For too long
I've been alone, can't mess up this one
I'm not the kind guy to give up easily
I really wanna say...

Just look at my face and look in my soul
As long as I'm with you I'll never feel alone
Just look at my face and look in my soul

I'm used to the lacking of someone else here
It's hard to come back from after all those years
I'm trying my best to fit in
But I have a small range of emotions
Track Name: Like That
You know I can't see
Can't see the mirror or the windscreen
Can't see the warning or the red light
Guess I may be a little uptight

I'm gettin' no sleep
No sleep can lead to other bad things
Like missing all the signals you send
Then I can't tie up any loose ends

You know I try
To make you feel good
Let me know why
You would wanna do me like that
Don't do me like that

It feels right
You make me feel good
Let me know why
You would wanna do me like that
Don't do me like that

You know I can't speak
Can't speak to what all of the others think
Can't speak to what the others feel like
But I'd guess that they're feelin' alright

Still gettin' no sleep
No sleep can lead to other bad things
Like missin' all the signals you send
Maybe I'll catch up on the weekends
Track Name: Better Than Ever (feat. Genevieve Schatz)
I can't believe that it's coming back
It's like an ancient dream that had fallen asleep
And I can't believe that it's coming back
It's like an old flame burning away

And I can't believe that it's coming back
We all thought it was lost in the jungle
And I can't believe that it's coming back
We all though it had died in the trenches

Are you hear with me?
Are you healing me?

Better than ever
Livin' a dream, can you wake up?

Are you hear with me?
Are you healing me?

Out of the rubble and on your feet
Back in the swing of things, the slow release
Make me remember and entity
A different kind of machine maneuvering

Business and pleasure through circuitry
Until the bell rings irreverently
Inching your way in eventually
Still can we salvage a little dignity?

Are you hear with me?
Are you healing me?

Better than ever
Livin' a dream, can you wake up?
Track Name: I Know I'd Feel The Same
It's all wrong, but you're right
Your crutch and your spite
It's too much, it's too tough
You don't feel good enough

I know I'd feel the same
I know how much you gave
I know I'd feel the same
I know how much you paid

You stand tall, you talk tough
You go make your own luck
Don't get down or give up
You heed what you love

I know I'd feel the same
I know how much you gave
I know I'd feel the same
I know how much you paid

It's all wrong, but you're right
Your touch and your fight
Track Name: Away
If you're thinking of leaving, you're in the right place
Readjusting your visual frame to a constant state
Struggling to see this old flirtation game
Triggering associations, slight delay

Changing roles, friend or foe before we overheat
On the verge emerging sense of urgency
Is it a dream, a nightmare, is it fantasy?
In fits and starts, we'll play the part until clarity

We'll take the bait and imitate almost every scene
Off the charts back at the start, triumphantly

Away
Track Name: It Happens
Woke up this morning
With the Sunrise
Rolled over this morning
To my Surprise

Would I believe it if it happened?
Don't want to believe it but it happened

Call of the folks
Cause I don't feel right
Not gonna be falling
Asleep tonight

Would I believe it if it happened?
Don't want to believe it but it happened

Ooh, what have I done?
Where can I run to?

Looked out the window
To my surprise
Not gonna be saying
All my goodbyes

Would I believe it if it happened?
Don't want to believe it but it happened
When I believe it, it happens
Don't want to believe it but it happens

Ooh, what have I done?
Where can I run to?
Track Name: What If?
Right time in the right place
A word on the back of a blank page
A last ditch effort to seal our fates in time

A blind spot that's hard to reach
A tear in the fabric of history
And this is the struggle for memory and

What if there was something we can't reach?
Another set of words that we can't speak
Something beyond our own dreams
What if?

This is where it will all take place
Just on the verge of a golden age
And then we're back to the old debate again

There goes the neighborhood at the seems
The fix is in if you know what I mean
We jury-rigged the entire thing to win

What if there was something we can't reach?
Another set of words that we can't speak
Something beyond our own dreams
What if?

Stop trying to untie this
Knot is diversion
Stop trying to untie this
Knot is distraction

Tip-toe through destiny
You're hanging on by the skin of your teeth
A slight suspension of disbelief in mind

Old wounds surfacing
The nuanced peaks and valleys
The thread that's weaving the symphony in time

What if there was something we can't reach?
Another set of words that we can't speak
Something beyond our own dreams
What if?

Stop trying to untie this
Knot is diversion
Stop trying to untie this
Knot is distraction
Track Name: Tunnels in Time
We forced ourselves to discover
Tunnels in time
We have no choice but to recover
Tunnels in time

Water's flowing on the ground
Wind is blowing down your house
Trouble's growing from the south
I believe in it
Track Name: Through The Glass
Through the glass
Through the glass
The dream runs parallel
So can't even tell

The dream runs parallel
The dream runs parallel
To all of us
Track Name: Feeling
Call it old-fashioned or call it surreal
Keep it inside all your worries and fears
But that's just a perspective, a point of view
Nobody knows how to cope with the truth

Hoping, dreaming holding you back
Cause they won't let you in
Holding, feeling follow them back
But they won't let you in

I don't know why I've been feeling this way
Push me aside at the end of the day
Cause it makes me feel like I'm one of you
Makes me feel like I've got no more appeal

Hoping, dreaming holding you back
Cause they won't let you in
Holding, feeling all the way back
But they won't let you in
