Track Name: Cleave
It's not invisible; it's plain to see
From your rose bud smile
And true the evidence it shines from me
In romantic style
We're not ashamed to let the whole world know
This is who we are
Profess our love for all eternity
Whether near or far

And I will cleave to you
And you will cleave to me

And though we're drifting in the stream of time
Being pulled along
We've tied a knot that no one can unwind
Cause it's just too strong
We'll let the current take us out to sea
Cause we've made a vow
Forever two as one and friends we'll be
We'll make it work somehow

And I will cleave to you
And you will cleave to me

And we will stick forever
Lose ourselves between each other
Through thin and any weather
We will will always be together

Now we have proven one and one makes three
Added to our fold
It's made us young as anyone can be
As we're growing old
We may not know just what the future brings
Be it good or bad
To keep our promise we'll do everything
We'll give it all we have

And I will cleave to you
And you will cleave to me
Track Name: Obscene
And I find
You're wrong
No matter what you say
You can try
To explain
You're stupid either way

Can you hear
The sound
Of echoes in your head?
It's hard to believe
You get around
With the IQ of bread

It's obscene
So obscene

You make me sick
You make me sad
Open your mouth
It makes me mad

I don't wanna hear
Another thought you've had
So shut your mouth

And I try so hard
To ignore
To look the other way
Cause I've been told
It's not your fault
That you were born that way

But when I think of how
You and your spawn
Could fill the earth
I have to think it's a crime
For your mom
To have given birth

It's obscene
So obscene

Your mind's a brick
Without the mass
And you're as thick
As space is vast

And I'm ashamed
Each time I face
We both are of
The human race

You make me sick
You make me sad
Open your mouth
It drives me mad

I don't wanna hear
A word you want to add
So shut your mouth

It's obscene
So obscene
Track Name: Striving After Wind
And I saw all of the works that were done under the sun, and look - everything was vanity, and a striving after wind.
Track Name: Unwind
There's something in the way you look at me
When anger sets your passion free
That it seems so strange to realize
All the depth within the soul behind those eyes

Time is on your side
So leave those memories behind
And I will always try
To make those memories unwind

And that's not to say you'll ever be
Able to cleanse your memory
But given time you'll realize
All the pleasant thoughts won't let
The old ones rise

Time is on your side
So leave those memories behind
And I will always try
To make those memories unwind

And they keep coming back
Those thoughts of loss and pain
Don't let them turn the tide
You never fight in vain
Cause I'll be by your side
To make it right again
And your time will come

Time is on your side
So leave those memories behind
And I will always try
To make those memories unwind

And I am on your side
So live each memory you find
And I will always try
To make those memories be kind
Track Name: Sometimes
Sometimes we are drowning in the water
And sometimes we are swimming to the shore
If we could only get a little rhythm
Then neither would be drowning anymore

Sometimes we are sailing on the water
And sometimes we are falling overboard
If we see the storms before we falter
Then maybe we can make it to the shore

I want to swim to your island of love
I want to eat the fruit and drink from the sweet sweet springs
And if we send out a dove
I know we will be happy with the branch it brings

Sometimes we are full of love and laughter
And sometimes we are venom to the core
If we can just remember what we're after
Then neither would be hurting anymore

I want to swim to your island of love
I want to eat the fruit and drink from the sweet sweet springs
And if we end up in love
I know we will be happier than anything
Track Name: I Don't Think So
Cause if this is a lie
You know it will break the spell
That love has over me
And I guess it's just as well

Cause what you feel inside
You know it must be real
Don't take me for a ride
Leave me crushed beneath the wheel

Cause if it's a lie
Please let me know
Cause I won't die, at least I
I don't think so

I hope you realize
What all this really means
The pain I have inside
From what you've done behind the scenes

I know it isn't right
To feel the way I feel
But with my back turned to the lies
The dagger's thrust is all to real

Cause if it's a lie
Please let me know
Cause I won't die, at least I
I don't think so
Track Name: Zero
Ate my cake and had it too
Sent for more, what else to do
Sick inside with gluttony
Find myself despising me
Forfeits ending every game I
Treason against my own name
Too much time is on my hands But I still
Wonder where I lost the sands

I'm counting down
Just to make the moment tense
I'm counting down
Til the numbers make no sense
And counting down
I'm no longer needed here
So I'm counting down
Who I am until I'm zero

Until I'm zero

8 more years of wasted life
7 months since loss of wife
6 weeks 'til not mail arrives
5 days stretched out like five lives
4 hours since I've moved at all
3 minutes on a prank phone call
2 seconds of time I won't give
1 moment more is too much to live

I'm counting down
Til the numbers make no sense
I'm counting down
Just to make the moment tense
And counting down
I'm no longer needed here
So I'm counting down
Who I am until I'm zero

Counting down
Just to make the moment tense
I'm counting down
Sitting on life's broken fence
Just counting down
The only thing I have to fear is
Counting down
Who I am until I'm zero

Until I'm zero
Track Name: Be With You
When you feel alone inside
I will be with you
And when your eyes are full of tears
I will sing to you

You have been summertime
Till your autumn spills like rain
In winter snow since long ago
I have been your spring again

When you feel alone inside
I will be with you
And when your eyes are full of fear
I will sing to you

And I dream of a time
When your eyes don't hold such pain
But letting go is hard, I know
So I hold you close again

Till morning comes
I will hold you tight
Come winters dawn
I will melt the ice

Through the snow
Through the rain
And when it pours
You know that I will be there
Track Name: Homecoming
You tell her it's all right
Before you kiss her head goodnight
But the truth is daddy isn't coming home

You tell yourself this you must do
When you kill them and they kill you
Still the truth is daddy isn't coming home

Your enemy so far away
Says my sweet boy I'll be OK
I promise you that I am coming home

But the bullets do not care which way they fly
They're killing either way
In the end a daddy isn't coming home
Track Name: August Moon
An August moon next to the sun would look so pale
But soon the night will overcome and tell it's tale

You had the choice to take a stand, to live, to follow through
You lost your voice when they demanded that you speak what's true

So it's not for you

The tiny eyes of mole-ish men won't help them in the day
When dawn has come, what kind of eyes have you within their sway

There's still the hope, but you refuse to do what you should do
You chose to grope in darkness while a bitter price is due

So it's not for you

So when your sky turns darkest black and drains of ocean blue
You will not sail your vessel back because you have no crew

(Do you regret that you said)
It's not for you
Track Name: Loser
Are you proud
Of your life's achievement?
You've been sitting there
In your underwear

You've allowed
Your standards to falter
Like you'd even care
Will you ever care?

And when you lay your head to sleep
You count a dozen lazy sheep
And make a plan for nothing the next day

So you finally close your eyes
The days events to memorize
But in your mind there's nothing there to stay

Are you proud
That your parents still love you?
Kept that roof above you
'Till your forty five

Hang around
In your room in the cellar
There's a funny smell there
Are you still alive?

When you finally go outside
You look so pale that children hide
You go to town to find a game to play

A girl you once knew passes by
By miracle you catch her eye
But in your mind ther's nothing there to say

Are you proud
Of your future uncertain?
When you part the curtain,
is the view sublime?

You've allowed
Your whole life to falter
Offered at the altar
of wasted time

Are you proud...?

How could you be?
Track Name: The Secret
Time may open up your mind
What will we see indside your mind
Your life you've always tried to hide
It's buried deep inside your mind

And we will find you there
What will we find in there

Time is broken and unkind
Sometimes it's hard to find your mind
And lies will be a thin disguise
For things that you despise in your mind

And we will find you there
If you will lead us there

Time has opened up your mind
