Track Name: Back and Forth
Back and Forth

Why'd you think your nights were sleepless?
tongue tied while she's feeling restless
while you walk, pacing steps familiar
pass the days that won't be with her

Back and Forth

Feels as if it's coming again
I don't need to dodge around it
beat around the bush that's burning
what I thought, her gaze was turning

Back and Forth
Track Name: You Came To Me
HA

I fell in love with my own jealousy
I'm a better man in misery
when love is right, when love is free
in the night, you came to me

It's bizarre between option and destiny
what is real life, love, and liberty?
live by yourself with me
in my dream, you came to me

these people live on venom,
spitting out addendums
piece together papers that you can't see
-- darling, how are you doing?

c'mon get your eyes checked,
your silly bloody eye-sex
don'tcha know your neighbor's a hypocrite just like me
-- no, fancy don't come for free

When I was feeling low, didn't have belief
I found shelter beneath your wing
your toes at my door, a magic scene
in the light, you came to me

You spoke the truth, not common courtesy
A conscience that is squeaky clean
you plot the point, I'll plant the seed
and in the breeze, you came to me
Track Name: Syriacus (Another Day to Go)
Looks like a dream
nothing I've ever seen
something I know it's real
just an unfamiliar feeling

we won't all be remembered
and I'm passing with the weather
I thought I saw your face one day,
well that was strange
four years, will you remember my name?
well that's okay

worried 'bout this Syriacus
like it's something that'll never grow
and I'm withered to the corpus
writing letters to let you know

but it's looking like it may rain
just another day to run
another day to go
another day to go
another day to go
oh yeah, alright

we won't all be remembered,
and I'm passing with the weather
each time I left your grandfather's home
I feel alone
four years, will you remember my name?
well that's okay

worried 'bout this Syriacus,
like it's something that'll never grow
and I'm withered to the corpus
writing letters to let you know

but it's looking like it may rain
just another day to run
another day to go
another day to go
another day to go
oh yeah, alright
Track Name: Love-Locked
She's just like magic in your delirium-dosed dreams
and if you've had it, then you're somewhere close to my thinking

She's so hypnotic, and I'm spinning indecision
benign-psychotic, having trouble with position

love-locked
here she comes again,
ooh yeah (believe it girl)
love locked
there she goes again
ooh yeah

Can't see the future, but I'll try to hop a plane
I can't refuse her...
When will I see you again?

She moves in mystics and I tried to find her way
I almost missed it, distance won't quell to fade
Track Name: Move Me
Lips that ever move me,
the wrongs that they could do me, move me
grip that just won't hold on,
transmits through the neurons, move me
true love can't be waitin',
my heart is tense and pacin', move me
lips that ever move me,
I don't know what she's doing, move me

can you take my pain?
can you take my heart?
If i'd never known you,
we could be back at the start

I've gotta have you in my life
but it's so hard to wait
my weakness is I'll never control fates

(hate the future, love the past
values change, feelings last)

Lips that ever move me,
the wrongs that they could do me, move me
grip that just won't hold on,
transmits through the neurons, move me
true love can't be waitin',
my heart is tense and pacin', move me
lips that ever move me,
I don't know what she's doing, move me

It's only in my dreams
so far that I can't reach
it's grasped my soul,
not just a part of me

I need to let me be
some time to sit and think
I never thought it'd be so hard to watch you leave

Lips that ever move me,
the wrongs that they could do me, move me
grip that just won't hold on,
transmits through the neurons, move me
true love can't be waitin',
my heart is tense and pacin', move me
lips that ever move me,
I don't know what she's doing, move me
Track Name: Inner / Outer Drama
Please don't ever take my baby,
she's the only one that I've got
please don't let him take my baby,
she's the only one that I've got

I've been wondering 'bout your future plans
you say that you don't even need a man
let's stay together, less if we're apart
oh my darlin' fonder grows the heart

Please don't ever take my baby,
she's the only one that I've got
please don't let him take my baby,
she's the only one that I've got

They say that less is more but I have fears
will this time just bring me joy or tears
I won't even know what is my goal
by the time I'm at nine syllables

Please don't ever take my baby,
she's the only one that I've got
please don't let him take my baby,
she's the only one that I've got
Track Name: Karma
Driving, oh how is the distance?
Oh do you miss this? Feel, feel
crying, oh I can feel the streaming
it's something that I'm needing, feel, feel

luck and superstition, oh they'll never harm ya
the self breeds no conviction and no karma

dreamly, I hear you saying my name
it could be that it's my brain, feel, feel
flying, in my astral body,
someday the Lord will call me, feel, feel

luck and superstition, oh they'll never harm ya
the self breeds no conviction and no karma
Track Name: Terror-Monger
All I wanna do is kill myself, yeah
I hear she's been around with someone else, yeah
I feel like something's always out to get me
as if I'm even something that's worth having
gotta fix the pipes, appears to be leaking
freaky-deaky, oh girl I'm sinking

Oh, here he comes
death is an evil one

She tries to make me jealous of her
Woman, I love you on the regular
I'm about to get my freak on, she's gone
I don't wanna be right, don't wanna be wrong
I don't wanna be your undercover
Am I the only man who really loves you?

It comes in waves,
comes through the walls,
He's coming down the hall
Track Name: Love > Thought
Nothing that I'm doing feels right
won't you justify my means
yeah nothing that I'm doing feels quite right
and nothing is as it seems

let me know you made it home safe
let me know you'll never change
baby, let me know you make it home, okay?
let me know your in it for the long haul

I'm passing conscience
own understanding
am I drifting off to sleep?
you see I'm close to something
closer to nothing
why can I not rid this disease?
you see I'm close to something
closer to nothting
why can I not find some relief?

you see the love-thought happen,
finding patterns
was it you or predestiny?

you see the love-thought stoppin',
doubt from the noggin
why won't you just let your heart lead?

you see the motherfuckers
choke out the lovers
where is hope in all this deceit?

Darling feel close, don't feel far away
I swear there's no distance in-between
these people won't understand your love for it all
because I know they aren't free

people all around think I'm crazy
well, that's just lack of belief
and I should be the man that I'm called to be
or maybe I'll just retreat...

I'm passing conscience
own understanding
am I drifting off to sleep?
you see I'm close to something
closer to nothing
why can I not rid this disease?
you see I'm close to something
closer to nothting
why can I not find some relief?

you see the love-thought happen,
finding patterns
was it you or predestiny?

you see the love-thought stoppin',
doubt from the noggin
why won't you just let your heart lead?

you see the motherfuckers
choke out the lovers
where is hope in all this deceit?
Track Name: Face Your Fate
I can hear the words unspoken, sounds something like a priest
and I can't mend this love that's broken, makes your health feel like disease

Face your fate, and don't
leave a trace, I will
fake it 'til it all looks great, when I
still just want to hide my face

lessons that I'm learning tell me: bear better thoughts in mind
and if your orbit isn't Ripley's, I'll feel the vital signs

Face your fate, and don't
leave a trace, I will
fake it 'til it all looks great, when I
still just want to hide my face

living in the past is danger, it's a primal inner-joust
and while he's roving on his ranger, broke a spiral glassy house

the greatest pimp that bought it, written on the goblet,
lies the gentle cygnet, echo does the linnet
and here, the equal heathers that drink to fairer weather,
why is your mind together?

Face your fate, and don't
leave a trace, I will
fake it 'til it all looks great, when I
still just want to hide my face
Track Name: Io
I can't satisfy your gaze,
put you in a darker maze
I've seen the world spinning out
countless pain, endless doubt
And it is welling in your mind
Future is so far behind

Ooh, here comes your ride
Yeah, you've waited all your life
Ooh there goes the time
Yeah passing by your eyes

and I had nothing left to bring
by your side was everything
I view myself more than I should
and closing eyes makes me good
and I can't take it anymore
all the ones I've left before
