Track Name: forget
you make me feel wild and alive
a new car anywhere lets drive
I'm sending my hopes to your eyes tonight
mistakes are no longer required
I forget that I'm broken for now
I forget that i'm feeling lost somehow
I wake up in amongst the leaves
you're standing watching over me
todays the day we swim out to sea
the sun is shining high for me
all this hate and regret
all this fear and neglect
its what I choose to forget
so alone and upset
the self abuse, disrespect
its what I choose to forget
Track Name: black ink ocean
its raining hard in the yard I'm soaked to the skin I'm beckoned in the dying fire fills my desire like so many few I give myself to you
withholding tears I plant ideas I drink the clouds stand back so proud I'm climbing the walls I'm breaking nails I'm far out to sea without any sails
Ill take whatever drugs you say ill do anything to stay
in the silence and slow motion I drift to the floor of the black ink ocean
and all these places in my mind i stare at over time
in the silence and slow motion I drift to the floor of the black ink ocean
I'm flying kites I'm selling dreams suspended high on cracking beams miles and miles above the sand i can't hold on with my broken hands
but something will catch me and something will carry me in the distance i see the beach but you've already fallen from my reach.
Track Name: ever belong
you left and you didn't say goodbye I thought you'd left me behind I long time I yearned for you once sighted now I'm blind
you tore a piece of me away you ripped it from my core but you'd held it all this time in a box under your floor
why did you never tell me why did you never try why did you never make me feel like I ever belong
I know you tried so hard you gave us all you could I get those flashes sometimes once tall when you stood
but I forget what it was like to have your truth in my life but your eyes turn around and say to me just stop asking why again
why did you never tell me why did you never try why did you never make me feel like I ever belong
why did you never hold me like you should've done I wish I known the man you'd never had become
Track Name: children
they're speaking again in my mind
exposing weakness' they find
the killing all human kind
taking my eyes I'm now blind.
walking fast in this race
consuming all in its wake
the risks that i now must take
i look at you and i say.
and the hardest thing saying sorry to the children
and the hardest thing look in a mirror be forgiven
and the Dr says
take these pills and put them in your mouth
its ok my child
it will ease the pain and make you forget yourself
Track Name: i can't help
we go round and round on the merry-go-round
we say, faster and faster still
we play, over and over again
the same scenery everyday
its gets harder and harder, just to walk away
and i can't help wanting more from you
feeling this way anymore
missing you when you're not there
needing you more than you need me
we keep making and making fun again
filling the emptiness, escaping again
i hoped you'd be so proud of me one day
before i could say a word you turn away
and i can't help wanting more from you
feeling this way anymore
missing you when you're not there
needing you more than you need me
Track Name: smile
climbing out along barbed wire
with cut hands at least I'm out of the fire
short cut through the park
mist rising up from the grass
clouds turn into rain
the pouring down the satin fade
although now you're feeling weak just listen
you will hear them speak now
shout from mountain tops
and we will stand trial
i wake up
i see your smile
it ends this long reign
the healing of my pain
we are alive
i can and will survive
you're right in front of me
it took a while but at least now i see
you are my angel in disguise
i feel your warmth
from the sunrise
