Track Name: No Escape
We're all told from a very early age
That we need to make more than a livable wage
If we want to survive
If we want to be worth a damn
So we try, we try, yes we try
But it won't amount to much in the end

And we'll run, we'll run, we'll run
So far away
We'll run, we'll run, we'll run
But we won't get away
We'll get caught and dragged
Broken and bloody
Back to the hell we call
Our home

Yes they beat us they try to make us all fit
Into neat little boxes
And damn they've gotten pretty good
After decades of this shit
So we try, we try
We try so fucking hard to fit
And we'll cut off any part of our body
That don't jive with it

We'll run, we'll run, we'll run
So far away
We'll run, we'll run, we'll run
But we won't get away
We'll get caught and dragged
Broken and bloody
Back to the hell we call
Our home

So we try our best to all conform
And to be little angels
To be different is insane
Or so they say to you and me
So we'll try, we'll try, we'll try to conform
And give up our own sanity
We'll rinse, we'll wash, we'll repeat
We'll do it all in the heat of the street
It's all right it don't really matter cause
We'll see, we'll see it all fade
See we eat, we sleep, we shit, we die
We work, pay bills, kiss our dreams goodbye
It's all we're supposed to do until we kick it

We'll run, we'll run, we'll run
So far away
We'll run, we'll run, we'll run
But we won't get away
We'll get caught and dragged
Broken and bloody
Back to the hell we call
Our home
Track Name: So Remains The Soul
If forever isn't ever enough for you
I'd find more ever, you know it's true
And together we'd be two clever fools
Just pull my lever and I'll be your sharpest tool

And so remains the soul
And so remains the soul
And so remains the soul
On and on, forevermore

I know I'm selfish and a bit immature
But no one promised you a clean bill of health
I'd die with you a hundred times
Before living with anyone else

And so remains the soul
And so remains the soul
And so remains the soul
On and on, forevermore

If time wasn't on my side
I'd be alright if you were
If time wasn't on my side
I'd be alright if you were
If time wasn't on my side
I'd be alright if you were
If time wasn't on my side
I'd be alright if you were

And so remains the soul
And so remains the soul
And so remains the soul
On and on, forevermore
Track Name: Spark
The taste of love
Is hard to define
You want the melon
But all you get is the rind
Sweet is all sour
Wet is all dry
And you don't even want to give
Anyone else a try

Your heart's a rich city
All full of life
But after years of decay
You know something just ain't right
So you get taken to the outskirts,
Dragged by the hand
You see the lights flaring up
As they start to shine again

You got to rise up
And get back on your feet
You got stand strong
Don't give into defeat
Cause you know
Deep down in your heart
Though the lights may be low
They'll never lose their spark

And as life returns
To your cold and dying eyes
You whisper a prayer,
Knowing this time it ain't a lie
Slowly but surely you learn
To give your heart away
Knowing you're not alone
In this life and in this fray

Now don't listen to detractors
They're all sick of their own schemes
They just want to make you miserable
Because you dared to dream
So hold your head up high
And love whoever you want
It's better to die for what you believe in
Than to live as someone you're not

You got to rise up
And get back on your feet
You got stand strong
Don't give into defeat
Cause you know
Deep down in your heart
Though the lights may be low
They'll never lose their spark

Cause you know
Deep down in your heart
Though the lights may be low
They'll never lose their spark
Track Name: No Complaints
I have no complaints.
The sun slid in through the
Living room window,
Caressing the hardwood
Floors. This was my stage but,
All I did was act.
I was paid only in pbr
And three, thick strips of maple bacon.
The audience will never know that as I smiled
On that star-lit stage,
My breath smelled of
Dead pig and cheap beer.
Track Name: Working On Clichés
Well there's nothing you can say
That'll turn me away
I need you in my arms for sure
It's all I can do, you know I need you
Well I don't know much about love
Being so young you see
But I want to learn everything
About loving free
And I know
I'll learn it from you

You know I love you
And there's nothing,
Nothing, nothing
We can't do
You know I love you.

There's things in my mind and heart and my soul
That I don't really know just how to explain
I guess I'm illiterate
When it comes to showing my emotions
But I'm learning real quick,
yes, I'm learning real fast
What it takes to make a good, good feeling last
And I hope you'll stick around
While I figure out the small stuff
Oh I feel kind of sick, yes I feel kind of bad
When I can't give a damn about what I have
and I hope and I pray that these damn feelings go away

You know I love you
And there's nothing,
Nothing, nothing
We can't do
You know I love you.

Well I'm trying real hard,
Yes I'm trying the best I can
To understand what it takes
To be a worthwhile man
Scratch that a person of worth,
Anything I can do
And I'm not to label myself
As an erratic mess
But I can't understand
Why I feel such stress
And I don't know what to say
Or what I should do

You know I love you
And there's nothing,
Nothing, nothing
We can't do
You know I love you.

Well I'm trying real hard,
You know I'll give it my best,
But I don't know if I can
Just cope with the stress
Well I know that's cliché
But it's the best I can do
And if you find someone better
I'll understand if we're through
And if you want to know how I feel
Just listen to more clichés I say

You know I love you
And there's nothing,
Nothing, nothing
We can't do
You know I love you.

Well I know that's cliché
But it's the best I can do
And if you find someone better
I'll understand if we're through

You know I love you
You know I love you
Track Name: What Does It Matter?
Everyday I think of all the dreams I had
And every day I change what they mean to me
Everyday I think of those same old dreams
Knowing most of them will never be

What does it matter when nobody cares?
And you know you're going nowhere
Why should I waste my breath
On a halfhearted lie at best?

Right, why should I waste my breath?

In the end you got to look out for number one
You know that’s what they always say
In the end I know I'll fail again and again
Hoping I’ll succeed some day

What does it matter when nobody cares?
And you know you're going nowhere
Why should I waste my breath
On a halfhearted lie at best?

Right, why should I waste my breath?

What does it matter when nobody cares?
And you know you're going nowhere
Why should I waste my breath
On a halfhearted lie at best?
Track Name: I Fear Your Pain
You can't seem to find your way
When the world is all but against you
The soft warmth of another's hand
Guides you through to another day

There's no strength in violence
There's no shame in the silence, you won't speak
I understand enough
To fear your pain

The morning comes day after day
With nothing changing just growing older
And there's nothing left your voice can say
The scars on your throat continue to ache

There's no strength in violence
There's no shame in the silence, you won't speak
I understand enough
To fear your pain

The nagging thought in the back of your mind
A memory you wish you could forget
A few words and it all comes back
In treatment but there's no cure

There's no strength in violence
There's no shame in the silence, you won't speak
I understand enough
To fear your pain

There's treatment but no cure
There's treatment but no cure
I understand enough to fear your pain
There's treatment but no cure
There's treatment but no cure
I understand enough to fear your pain
Track Name: Daydream
I was dressed in my Sunday's best
Looking out the window in an old cafe
You walked by with an honest smile
And I wish I begged you to stay

I knew somewhere we'd meet again
And like two children we would play pretend
I'd be mesmerized by your eyes
And you'd hold me tight in the coldest of nights

We'd laugh and drink
Our hearts content
And bare out souls
With no regrets
I'll hold your hand
Put my heart on the line
In this daydream
Of mine

And it so happened that we met again
You asked me if I had even just one ear to lend
I said "yes, I do for you," and you smiled back at me
Oh honey that's when I knew we started our own fantasy

We'd laugh and drink
Our hearts content
And bare out souls
With no regrets
I'll hold your hand
Put my heart on the line
In this daydream
Of mine

But your heart bled the letters of another lover's name
I was just another one you could conquer and claim
Just another island on your stream
Then I remember that this is just another dream

Yes we'd laugh and drink
Our heart's content
And bare our souls
With no regrets
I'd hold your hand
Put my heart on the line
If you'd only
Be mine
Track Name: Blood Sweet On The Linoleum
I had a dream last night
That we robbed a department store
We killed the manager
His blood painted the linoleum floor
There was something I wanted to say to you
But you were sure that we wouldn't get caught
I went back and cleaned up the evidence
You didn't wear any gloves

Well then a few days went by
I wondered if we'd get caught
Kept having the same nightmare
Kept having the same nightmare

Blood was on the linoleum
My mind couldn't stand the thought
Blood was on the linoleum
Oh the thought of us getting caught

I had a dream last night
That we robbed a department store
We killed the manager
His blood painted the linoleum floor

I can't believe I had the dream again
I was wearing dark leather gloves
Left no finger prints and broke the cameras
You touched everything, with your bare hands
I went back and cleaned up your crime
I guess I was just along for ride
Though I didn't mind seeing that blood
Hit that sweet sweet linoleum

Blood was on the linoleum
My mind couldn't stand the thought
Blood was on the linoleum
Oh the thought of us getting caught

I had a dream last night
That we robbed a department store
We killed the manager
His blood painted the linoleum floor

Blood was on the linoleum
My mind couldn't stand the thought
Blood was on the linoleum
Oh the thought of us getting caught
Track Name: A Wounded Heart (All Black and Blue)
If I'm ever not by your side
Not there to hold you tight
I'm sorry I apologize
I know that ain't right
If I'm ever not there to stand
Close to you and hold your hand
I'm sorry I apologize
Just know I tried, know I tried

When the clouds, cover the sky
And you look up, through tired eyes
Tryin' to forget, what you can't lose
A wounded heart, all black and blue

If you ever think of me
Over shirts and worn out jeans
I'm sorry I apologize
Sometimes time don't fly
If you ever feel alone
With stale air and mono tone
I'm sorry I apologize
I didn't mean to leave you so

When the clouds, cover the sky
And you look up, through tired eyes
Tryin' to forget, what you can't lose
A wounded heart, all black and blue

If I ever leave your side
I'm sorry I apologize
If you ever feel alone
I'm sorry I can't come back home
If I ever go away
I'm sorry I couldn't stay
Wandering minds are meant to be lost
And those at home pay their cost
Wandering minds are meant to be lost
And those at home pay their cost
