Track Name: 1.1.2011
Timeless; life stands still.
These seasons change against my will.
My mate, New England air doesn't feel the same.
Gone with the wind, never to be seen again.
Darkness engulfs me.
Under the streetlight speechless and alone.
I can still feel your ghost, I can still hear your voice.
You're all around me and in my head with no physical evidence.

Hollowed from the inside out, I am nothing.
You gave me every reason to believe, I was more than this.
But you can't answer anymore.

I cried out to you, but you drove away.
You never looked back.
Lost in translation with the voices inside your head.
Like The shadows cast around you.
I guess they got what they wanted.
But I guess so did you.

Hollowed from the inside out, I am nothing.
You gave me every reason to believe, I was more than this.
But you can't answer anymore.
Track Name: Times Have Changed
I wonder where my life would lead,
played out like those in the stories.
All of those books you used to read,
but I grew up, and things have changed.

The clocks overturned, I made excuses
to keep to myself.
Bottled up, like those bottles of wine,
you've allured.

I digress, I'm doing the best that I can.
Things aren't how they used to be.
I wanted to be a better son.
The boy you could be proud of.
Where did we go wrong?
Where did we go?

If I could reset this falling sand
and look back to the days where I walked away,
maybe we'd see each other for who we'd really be.

I digress, I'm doing the best that I can.
Things are how they should be.

Times have changed.
I'm not the same boy you used to know.
And honestly. I don't feel I know you anymore.
Please understand, I'm crying for your love.
Please understand, I didn't want to disappoint.

This wasn't an act of failure,
just a bump in the road.
I'm not giving up,
just please don't give up on me.
Track Name: Dreams
I've been writing for days,
but my words can only travel so far.
Ebb and flow for all of us.
But I'm stuck here in the in between.

If only they meant more when said.
Not fall to the floor, shattered and left there to wither away.

Time just keeps passing us by.
Help me depart this endless cycle.
Of wishing and wanting, but failing.

The hourglass comes to a stop, just like my dreams.
The only escape is an endless sleep.
Slipped through my fingers, like water down the drain.
This road leads to nothing, path unlit, into darkness.
Take your hands into mine, fingers intertwined.
I can make this with you, by my side.
(I can make this with you, by my side.)


Just please, oh please, don't turn your back on me.
Track Name: Ever Changing
In all my life,
I've never felt more broken
Than when you're here.
The waves crashing over, washed away.
All of this exposed fear.

If I had one wish it'd be to start anew.
Fresh from the bone.
Start it all again.
Maybe I can be someone better than myself.

This mirror has seen to many faces.
I just don't know how to expose.
Maybe I can be someone better than myself.

I wrote a novel to myself.
Oh, Dear God,
if you're out there,
who else can I be?
What do I have to lose?

Take it from me, watching through the glass.
These words I write won't solve that if I'm not me;
Who am I on the inside from someone else?

I wrote a novel to myself.
Oh, Dear God,
if you're out there,
who else can I be?
What do I have to lose?
