Track Name: The New You
Like our eyes adjust to light
will I adjust to you?
The new you.
Can I look past the changes
and still see you?
The real you.

You are becoming exactly what you hate.
You can't change back. I'm afraid it's just too late.

Your escape from life is temporary.
Your pleasure will become pain.
It's all an illusion.
If you shed a tear.
for every lie you've told,
would you survive, or would you drown?

Do you understand the consequences of your actions?
You're caught up in too many distractions.
I think inside you know,
but you pretend not to,
because it's easy for you.
You're not fooling anyone.
No, you're not fooling anyone.
Track Name: Buy The Lie
hide your eyes
seal 'em tight just like a lock
buy the lies
you're a sheep amongst the flock

stripped of everything
every truth. every choice.
everything that matters
all thats left is torment and sorrow

no peace. no joy. no salvation.
is this worth going through?
is this worth going through?
this life is a prison
and theres no way out

is it better to die
than live in misery
...better to die
than live in pain
Track Name: Internal Bleating
She may be smiling on the outside,
but inside, the forecast calls for rain.
And it just started raining. How fitting.
But she prefers to weep silently.

Too much time spent alone in her head
Can't escape the sadness
Wishing she could fall asleep

"Are you happy?" he asks.
She can't tell him "no", it'll break his heart.
And then there would be two, instead of one.
So she smiles to hide the truth.

Lights out, shades down
She lies alone in the dark
No one hears her cries
Can you save her?
Track Name: Love Or Get Off The Pot
The season is changing, will you be next?
It seems your mind is uncertain.
Am I holding on to something worthwhile?
Am I being set up for disappointment?

A wound must be cleaned before it can heal.
Let me cleanse my heart and mind
so I can be repaired and whole again.
Will you let me hurt?

The season is changing, did you decide?
This is my final ultimatum.
Embrace the feelings that frighten you
or cut the ties and let me go.

You hold the answer.
It's all up to you.
Pour the salt, or let me heal.
Track Name: I Won't
Did you think I'd wait forever?
I won't and now I'm gone.

False accusations, jealous glances,
taking chances you shouldn't take.
Have you noticed we're falling apart?
What's being done to fix this?

Confused eyes, bouquet of words.
They are meaningless to me.
I used to see right through you.
Now I don't even know you.
Track Name: The Human Condition
seven years and countless tears
our mistakes have fed our fears

all the fights that stole our nights
we must work to set this right

How am I to clear a path for him
when no tools have been handed down?

Intuition is my guide now.
And instinct my only friend.
My lonely friend.

Will he see the fear in my eyes?
I wonder, will he have my eyes?
