Track Name: Tidal Wave
I got me a mirror
but it told me lies
So I boarded the windows
and closed my eyes
All the while I just saw you
There was nothing I could do

I lost my reflection
in the dead moonlight
Oh, well he was never even on my side
I don't mind to say goodbye
It's alright to say goodbye

I followed your shadow
she told no lies
She told me your secrets
and where you hide
It's alright I'm not out to make you cry
Darling, I just want to waste your time

I bend just like the riverbed
I don't know who I'll be tomorrow
You break like a tidal wave
Hold my breath and aim for the bottom

Me, I've died a hundred times
and I'll die ten thousand more
If you'd like to kiss death tonight
I'll be waiting at your door

I bend just like the riverbed
I don't know who I'll be tomorrow
You break like a tidal wave
Hold my breath and aim for the bottom
Track Name: Backroads
Somebody open my eyes
I must be dreaming
I can't believe that
I'm all alone out here
chasing a hole in the sky
haunted by deamons
begging for freedom
with a head full of doubt and fear

Hit like a cannonball
so I broke with the morning sun
didn't know what to do but run
to break my fall

Oh, oh bottle of sorrow take me home
back where I know the roads
I got all mixed up looking for a ghost
but she was never home

We've got the wisdom of years
can you help me reason
in the Garden of Eden
we all fight for air
pumping the pain
the the gears of greed
crushing our weak bones
to dust and despair

Nothing but open roads
can't seem to make a move
I can't even lift my shoes
forget my soul

Oh, oh bottle of sorrow take me home
back where I know the roads
I got all mixed up looking for a ghost
but she was never home
Now you're all I've got so I hold you close
won't ever let you go
Oh, oh bottle I think I'm losing hope
Won't you just take me home?
Track Name: All the Same (Alt. Version)
I've been down this road before
and I've seen
the way it's gonna go down
I mean
It's all the same to me
If it's all the same to you

Do what you please
just watch your step
and if it shakes your knees
then it's probably deadly
and you should probably just leave

Who are you?

I wasted my belief on faith
and got no remedy for my pain
but it's all a dream to me
Is that how it seems to you?

Who are you?

Do you, do you know?
Does it make me weak?

You've made your mark
and all your scars
Carved them deep
into my heart
for the world to see
while I share it carelessly

Who are you?
