Track Name: Real Eyes
You offer your solution
It just adds to my confusion
You think you’re so damn clever
But you fall prey to your delusion

Here you go, running your mouth again
I don’t know where to begin

You’re a master of persuasion
But you can’t rise to the occasion
I think it’s safe to say I’d never
I won’t accept your invitation

Here I go, into the fold again
I don’t know where to begin

I sit and tell myself it’s fine
As you bolster up your alibi
Don’t know how long we can keep up this lie
I’ve all but given up this time

Well I don’t know just what you’re after
This is becoming a disaster
Track Name: Down
My life changed on the day we met
You’re the one I’ll never forget
I remember how it used to be
Wish I could erase that memory
Read my thoughts and I know that you’ll find
That you’re on my mind
Yeah you’re on my mind

Now we’re through and I’m all alone
Long time since I’ve been on my own
You say I did nothing wrong
Our love just didn’t last too long
I know there’s a man you want to see
It just isn’t me

I always hoped life was more than it seemed
Just for a while, I was living that dream
You became my life, and you turned it around
Now you are gone, and my dream tumbled down
Down, down, down, down, down!

I had a dream I was far out to sea
I called for a line, while you just stared at me
You sailed away, and you left me to drown
I closed my eyes, and I slowly sank down
Down, down, down, down, down!

This is where my story ends
Turn the page, and the next begins
Dark nights always bring the dawn
Time flies, so I must move on
I was lost, but now my heart is found
I’m free, and you won’t bring me
Down, down, down, down, down!
Track Name: Wolf!
Everyone says the world is not just black and white
So then why are they colorblind?
And if I was the king, I’d make everything right
But I’m not, I won’t waste my time

Hey! I’m callin’, but no one can hear me
Hey! I’m fallin’, but no one comes near me
Everything is going wrong, but nobody believes me
Looking in the mirror, I don’t blame them
I’m the boy who cried “Wolf!”, and everyone came running
I was looking for attention, but they saw through my lies

In the end, they gave up, called me out on my bluff
But this time, it was not a lie
When I speak, no one cares, they say they’ve had enough
And I don’t have an alibi

Hey! I’m cryin’, but no one can hear me
Hey! I’m dyin’, but no one comes near me
Everything is going wrong, but nobody believes me
Looking in the mirror, I don’t blame them
I’m the boy who cried “Wolf!”, and everyone came running
I was looking for attention, but they saw through my lies

“Wolf!” cried the boy, as his world fell apart
“Wolf!” cried the world, as the darkness filled his heart
Better to love oneself than to let the hatred fly
Better to live than to die

Hey! I’m sorry that no one believed me
Hey! I’m sorry temptation deceived me
I know living in the past won’t save my emotions
Living in a world where no one hears me
I’m the boy who cried “Wolf!”, now nobody comes running
And I’m dying for attention but there’s nobody left
Track Name: Ashes and Dust
Eyes behold, a story is told
For silence is nothing, we pretend
Oh, if we go, we’ll never grow from this
We’ll miss the other end

I cannot seem to fathom the state that we are in
Now let us start to gather what might have been

I don’t ever wanna hurt somebody who gave me their trust
I’d like to believe that we are more than ashes and dust

I might have known a story of our own own may cease to be
If I can’t become we
Oh, a story of our own will not end now
We’ll find a way somehow

My intellect is failing to see your side
Please intercept my ever-trailing mind

I don’t ever wanna hurt somebody who gave me their trust
I’d like to believe that we are more than ashes and dust

(Consciousness is flowing onward, We are one and growing onward)
If you feel like you’re the only one
Just remember, you are like the sun
Just because it isn’t in our eyes
Doesn’t mean it isn’t gonna rise

I don’t ever wanna hurt somebody who gave me their trust
I’d like to believe that we are more than ashes and dust

I don’t ever wanna search to find the right thing to say
I’d like to believe that there is always another way
