Track Name: Words
verse 1
photographs stacked in piles and piles
they seem to go on for miles and miles
i’ll take a walk just to clear my mind
the things i seek i cannot find

chorus
but words can have more than just one meaning
they’re always the things that are intervening
between two people when there is no light
when you've forgotten what’s wrong from what’s right

verse 2
i lay awake up all night
i search to find the words that are in plain sight
the ones i wish i wish that i heard
they always come out come out so slurred

chorus
but words can have more than just one meaning
they’re always the things that are intervening
between two people when there is no light
when you've forgotten what’s wrong from what’s right

verse 3
why’d you have to leave me in pieces on the ground
am i now lost forever i’ll never be found
you’re just too selfish to see what it is you do to me
this constant cycle leaves me black and blue

chorus
but words can have more than just one meaning
they’re always the things that are intervening
between two people when there is no light
when you’ve forgotten what’s wrong from what’s right
when you’ve forgotten what’s wrong from what’s right
you’ve forgotten what’s wrong
Track Name: Following Paths
verse 1
we’re following paths that are already paved
and tracing the footprints again and again
we search to find answers to all the questions
just take what you need please find a direction

chorus
but where will you be when it all falls down
and what can you see when the lights burnt out
and i can’t believe that there is so much more
but round every corner there’s an open door

verse 2
which way will i head it seems i’ll never know
i'll ponder these things and just try to grow
but i keep getting stuck in the same old damn place
a place that’s so dark and leaves you feeling encased

chorus
but where will you be when it all falls down
and what can you see when the lights burnt out
and i can’t believe that there is so much more
but round every corner there’s an open door

bridge
don’t take the paved road just find your own
it may be hard at times that i know
so easy to give up forget your dreams
but a stone unturned will leave you tearing at the seams

verse 3
another step forward but still two back
a missing piece just to throw you off track
to finding the things that you’ve always sought
they try to teach it it cannot be taught

chorus
but where will you be when it all falls down
and what can you see when the lights burnt out
and i can’t believe that there is so much more
but round every corner
around every corner
around every corner
there’s an open door
Track Name: Gaps and Spaces
verse 1
we've all got spaces
in places they should not be
and gaps in our lives
as big as this city
cracks in the foundation
which we now stand upon
but the lessons that we learnt
when we didn't move on

chorus
these gaps and spaces
cannot erase this
thing that we did when we were young
i cannot retrace this
map out the places
that we travelled when we were young

verse 2
some say we lost our minds
we lost all control
but the truth is we never
even had it at all
and now the dark clouds
cover all us
the rain pours down on our heads
removing any trust

chorus
these gaps and spaces
cannot erase this
thing that we did when we were young
i cannot retrace this
map out the places
that we travelled when we were young

bridge
but what can fill this void
i just don’t know
keep asking time and time again

has anyone figured it out
am i the only one
to see these spaces in our lives

verse 3
together we conquer
divided we all fall
and the reality of this fact
will unite us all
till the end of time
till we figure our lives out
alone we are so empty
and left filled with doubt

chorus
these gaps and spaces
cannot erase this
thing that we did when we were young
i cannot retrace this
map out the places
that we travelled when we were young

these gaps and spaces
cannot erase this
thing that we did when we were young
i cannot retrace this
map out the places
that we travelled when we were young
that we travelled when we were young
that we travelled when we were young
Track Name: This Place is a Prison
verse 1
this place is just a prison
with iron bars all around
and people who control your thoughts
without making the slightest of sounds

verse 2
images flash on television screens
manipulating your mind
is it just the little things
that'll leave you so blind

chorus
but at the end of the day
we may all be okay anyway
if we could just find a way anyway
to figure out how to say to say
what our true thoughts are
what our true thoughts are

verse 3
things just don't seem normal
they don’t make sense to me
so i’ll just sit here just hoping
that maybe someone else will see

chorus
but at the end of the day love
we may all be okay anyway
if we could just find a way anyway
to figure out how to say to say
what our true thoughts are
what our true thoughts are
what our true thoughts are
what our true thoughts are

outro
this place is just a prison
Track Name: This City Where We Reside
intro
there is no reason
no place to call home
when you’re lost in the city
city you've been living

verse 1
what is the question
though there’s no answer
not even a meaning at all

chorus
this city where we reside
is not a place you can hide
it’s bright all through the night
by the rows of many street lights

this city where we reside
is not a place you can lay
to rest your weary head
when it’s hanging by a needle and thread

verse 2
this place does not sleep
it shelters so few
from the storm that is coming through
where do we go from here
as time wears on
to a better place hidden from this city

chorus
this city where we reside
is not a place you can hide
it’s bright all through the night
by the rows of many street lights

this city where we reside
is not a place you can lay
to rest your weary head
when it’s hanging by a needle and thread

verse 3
these streets are lined
with glass and such
from the people who are struggling so much
to get by
and ease their pain
its just something so few can explain

chorus
this city where we reside
is not a place you can hide
it’s bright all through the night
by the rows of many street lights

this city where we reside
is not a place you can lay
to rest your weary head
when it’s hanging by a needle and thread
a needle and thread
a needle and thread
a needle and thread
Track Name: Lost in Your Head
verse 1 
somehow she slipped through your fingers
lost your grip and let her get away
the sad part is you don’t know where it all went wrong
then got lost in your own head

verse 2
you try to comprehend but you just cannot
thought you gave her the world
she played it off like you were her everything
and disappeared like the light

chorus
oh where’s your head at now
will you ever regret this at all
oh when you come back around
will i still be standing here
oh are you too naive 
to never regret this at all
oh if you come back around
will i still be standing here

verse 3
had every opportunity to walk away
but instead you played this little game
and told me all the things i wanted to hear
though the truth was quite clear

chorus
oh where’s your head at now
will you ever regret this at all
oh when you come back around
will i still be standing here
oh are you too naive 
to never regret this at all
oh if you come back around
will i still be standing here

outro
i don’t know but what i do 
is i won’t wait i will go about my life
to get to the place i wanna be
