Track Name: Breathing In
I stopped wondering
Why you're still around
Why my hearts still beating
And my feet still on the ground
When the wall comes down
The life I breathe into
As long as you're around
You know I'll need you need you

You're the best of me
You're the most of me
You're the wall around me
You're my reason to grow
You keep me breathing in
My heart beating, and
You're the body
And you're the soul
You're the body
And you're the soul
You're the body
And you're the soul

A breath of life
A reason to live
Breath from you I take
Becomes a wall that will never give
Breathing in
And knowing there's a reason to
As long as you're around
You know I need you need you

You're the best of me
You're the most of me
You're the wall around me
You're my reason to grow
You keep me breathing in
My heart beating, and
You're the body
And you're the soul
You're the body
And you're the soul
You're the body
And you're the soul

You're breathing out
I'm breathing in
You're breathing out, and
I'm breathing in
I'm breathing out
You're breathing in
I'm breathing out, and
You're breathing in

You're the best of me
You're the most of me
You're the wall around me
You're my reason to grow
You keep me breathing in
My heart beating, and
You're the body
And you're the soul
You're the body
And you're the soul
You're the body
And you're the soul
Track Name: Salty Sunburn
I'm not early
No you're not late
But the world is round
In miles of ground
There's sandy waters
And salty sunburn
But life is grand
Life is grand

I'm sitting shallow on a salty shoreline
With time to spare, but none to share
As long as I'm not close to you
I'm all by myself -don't need your help

Life is perfect in my own river
On my own land, 'cause life is grand
Life is perfect in my own river
On my own land, 'cause life is grand

The muddy banks are always open
to a lending hand, 'cause life is grand
And I hope I'm dead before tomorrow
I'm lifting time without my mind

And I'm not early
No you're not late
But the world is round
In miles of ground
As long as I'm not close to you
I'm all by myself -don't need your help

Life is perfect in my own river
On my own land, 'cause life is grand
Life is perfect in my own river
On my own land, 'cause life is grand

Dead, the rest is dead, the rest is dead, the rest is dead
Track Name: On Top of the World
So, I've figured out the world
And how it all really works
Specs of consciousness collide and crawl
On this earth

It's infinity, it won't end
It never will begin
What is has never been
It'll never be again

Is this how I start my day?
Beneath the words I can't begin to say
Underneath the problems,
the problems that I've made
I'm on top of the world, I'm on top of the world today

With utter patience, I
Am waiting here for time
To tell me why I live this life
And why am I not surprised?!

Because I've never fit your shoes,
Or tied into your noose
I'm not falling in your footsteps
I'm not following your rules!

Is this how I start my day?
Beneath the words I can't begin to say
Underneath the problems,
the problems that I've made
I'm on top of the world, I'm on top of the world today

I guess I am whom I portray
I guess I choose to be this way
And if I'm nothing in the longer run
I'm on top of the world today

On top of the world today
On top of the world
On top of the world
On top of the world
Track Name: Boulders
I've gone somewhere
You can't follow
Come bring me back my key
I know the devil
He's in my head
Won't let him get to me
You're full of lies, and I'm so full of sorrow
It's life that makes me sad
I laugh in wild eyes
You've shown blind eyes back at mine
'Cause life is all you have

Boulders next to me
Heaven's destiny
Won't let him get
to me, to me, to me, to me

Mirrors spring forth to me
It's sad but fascinating
You leave me blank and dazed
Set off for traveling
Leave Satan whispering
Leave boulders blocking his way

Boulders next to me
Heaven's destiny
Won't let him get
to me, to me, to me, to me
Track Name: Things
Things shine brightly, and things are dull.
Things are empty, and things are full.
Things get better, or so they say.
The best things hurt before they fade away.

Anything's better than watching things go.
It might get better, but no one knows.
Things aren't listening to the things I've said.
These words are dead to me. Things are dead.

I seem to get things. I never asked.
All the worst things have come and passed.
This is the best thing that I can find.
It's my everything. It's my life.
All the best things make things alright.

Vivid things flash through my mind.
Things stand still to catch up with time.
Things are horrid, and things aren't right.
But the best things always change my mind.

Nothing's perfect; I've come to know.
Things fall in pieces before they grow.
There's two sides to all things, 'cause all things change.
Despite things, nothing stays the same.

I seem to get things I never asked.
All the worst things have come and passed.
This is the best thing that I can find.
It's my everything. It's my life.
All the best things make things alright.

Things are enemies and fake allies.
Things aren't honest. Things aren't right.
Trust in nothing, 'cause nothing's real
It's honest enough to have disappeared.

Things communicate but misinterpret.
Things cause wars for things not worth it.
Things take lives for thrills on purpose.
Nothing's perfect, but nothing's worthless.

Everything lacks what everything wants.
I want nothing more than you to prove me wrong.
We can rid these things of their emptiness.
With their simple truths, we'll have everything we'll ever need.
It's all we'll ever need.
Anything and everything 'cause everything's something
Track Name: Far Too Close
It’s hard to see the crowded common ground beneath
I’m short of words
It’s time for me to take my turn
It’s hard to live lonely in a world so big
To self-indulge is to have never counted on love

Home sweet home
Laugh out loud and no one knows
Far too close
You know you got to let me go

Don’t lie to me
A friend is really what I need
It’s hard to bend
The truth has never been my friend

It’s time to breathe
Pull the hauteur from my feet
Destiny,
you know you got to let me be

Home sweet home
Laugh out loud and no one knows
Far too close
You know you got to let me go
Track Name: Death Speaks to Me
Don't like what I am
Don't like what I've become
Death speaks to me
I know why I know why
I don't like what I am
Don't like what I've become
I fought the words
The words would never come
Silence is in defeat
And I know who won
Don't like what I am
Don't like what I've become
Death speaks to me
I know why I know why
