Track Name: The Afterworldly
Time to change...let the rest hit the highway.
Maybe on Friday or Saturday, if I had it my way
I'd make it everyday, but that's if I had a say
It's okay, when there's only one way
You take that way, and move on to pay
The gold for the toll, it was left by the bay
And it may even pay off when you go away
That faithful day when you find the gray
Parts of your soul, the gold parts with your whole
Life, the white part of your mind controls
The Divine Glow, maybe in time alone
You'll lessons of the warrior's mind unfold
It's a crime told in the third person
But the lines hold, so the worse worsens
The grimes exposed.. the curse is working
Not lifetime to close the curtain

But I don't want to be, the animal, the cannibal
I want to lose it all when I meet the sea

The sky is falling in, yea, the sky is falling in
I hope you know that I lost it all

He says, "I rather like the cold"
Freezing from his head to toes
Snot, frozen on his nose
Forgot, everything he's told
Bought, everything he's sold...
Himself, you see this might be
His wealth. the cards you just might see
Your dealt, the king in the queen are all in me
And they all live free... locked in a prison
A contradiction he says... somethings missing
A key to this puzzle, maybe it's a muzzle?
To believe life is a daze is to say crime pays
When you wake up with your, mind in a daze
You forgot who you are, or what you've done
What if the answer, doesn't even come
Or know where you've come from..
A young child of 40 year's old... He runs
He says, "Don't find my heart, I'll leave it there
I can't restart, time I feel this air
When I feel despair, you should hear beware
That's a sign that my mind... really cares."

But I don't want to be, the animal, the cannibal
I want to lose it all when I meet the sea

The sky is falling in, yea, the sky is falling in
I hope you know that I lost it all

You say you know...
You said you know
You say you know

Everything... but your scared
Your scared
Your scared of what's out there

Don't tell me there's a future in reason
In reason
Because your not there

Track Name: About Face
I'm losing my sleep, trying to hold on
Trying to be so strong
But I'm falling...
But I'm falling...
In and out of my shell
In and out of my own hell
I hope the mirror reflects something clear
I hope it can see you
I'm losing it all
I thought that it all would fall
back into my lap, so I react
The same way I thought I could
The same way I thought I should
but your losing me
yea, I'm losing you
It's the way it always works out
don't tell me, you need me

When your not there
I feel like I lost
when your here it's all forgotten
and I can't live this way
With some pain
Comes so much game
Comes no gain
I feel like it makes no sense
maybe that's how it always was
but I'm gonna stand
I'm a man
I don't need you to understand
Why I do this
Why I feel
Why can't this be real?
I keep falling...
I keep falling..
Into the mirror
Hoping I can see you
But your not there, that's how it works

What did Adam & Eve, have that we didn't?
Why can't we unlock from this prison
I feel like there's always something missing
It's always missing... it's just how we go
It's the story we told
It's our own
It's our own
This song is About Face
About Face
It's About Face

I'm losing sleep all because of you
I'm losing years
Your a cancer
It's time that I move on..
move on...
Time I move on...
