Track Name: Gone For A While
I'll be home for dinner
You'll already be here
Cooking meat and potatoes
And drinking, so it goes

Sit here and hold me
Stay and fall asleep
Wake up with all the lights on
And the night already gone

Close our eyes at the same time, I know some day we won't be able
But I saw the signs, I thought we'd be fine
Close our eyes at the same time, I know some day we won't be able

Cross the bridge with me
Leave your body and see
We can stay and exist far away
And together

Cross the bridge with me
Leave your body and see
We can stay and exist far away
And forever

I'll remember the bridge
I'll remember the winter
I'll be gone for a while
But I'll be home for dinner
Track Name: Hey Stranger
Hey, stranger, I love you
Because I don't know you
I can only see you're bright,
cause when become casual
and your face is so usual I'll lose you
Your light flickered out

Some days I don't feel like talking
I wanna talk to you
But not everyone else too
So I'll hide my face, make my own space
and I'll love you
Your light is stronger than mine

So turn me on and dim me down, I can blow your fuse
Ride the wave, nothing to lose
Turn me on, dim me down, I can blow your fuse
Ride the wave, nothing to lose
Mine's not as bright as yours

Go on, tell me you love me
and all the things about me
That make you feel right
Cause when we get physical
And it becomes typical, I'll need you
I'll have burned out

So turn me on, and dim me down I can blow your fuse
Ride the wave, nothing to lose
Turn me on, dim me down, I can blow your fuse
Ride the wave, nothing to lose

Hey stranger, come to me
Try not to see through me
Incandescent, half present
Fluorescent, my lament brings me here
Stay with me, dear

so you can turn me on, and dim me down, I can blow your fuse
Ride the wave, nothing to lose
Turn me on, and dim me down, I can blow your fuse
Ride the wave, nothing to lose

Mine's not as bright as yours
Track Name: Eye Of The Storm
I want to be a gently flowing stream
I'll change the moment and where I need to be
The tide is strong and so I must move on...
I hope you remember me

Every hair, every piece of skin
Of who I was, tomorrow will renew
And the place from whence I came
Remains the same, I look into the great deep blue

At the top of the stream the water runs freezing cold
At the end it turns into the ocean

I am the hail, the rain, and the snow
And I go with the flow
I am the tide and I retreat at noon
And I rise up with the moon

I am a storm of the ages
I am the dark side, I am the changes
I am a storm of the ages
With a faze of the moon, I am a monsoon

You go out to sea (you'll have to deal with me)
I am your friend and (greatest enemy)
At the top of the stream, the water runs freezing cold
At the end it turns into the ocean
Track Name: Gemini
Number 16, you're an ill omen for me
I still refuse to be the best so you'll see
That I'm less if I let myself win
If I let myself win

Bat-winged harp, your alter's no match for me
I can amaze even you, sometimes myself too
'cause I'm lower than the fire 'neath my feet
The fire 'neath my feet

So why do I have to change?
I'm happy to stay the same
That's how the ghosts in my house know my fame
And I know everyone of them by name

Seven swords in the bedroom, I'm blinded anyway
Tell it to me once more, I've opened the door
And I'm flooded with the message to go
At least the cards say so

Number 16
Bat-winged harp
7 swords
Hope for the lovers

No, I'm not going to change
So long I've stayed the same
I know all the ghosts and their names
I guess I never knew any fame
Track Name: Throw Away The Key
Look at your hands, how they're not even yours
Yeah this is bad, but believe me I have seen worse
You're not the first and you won't be the last
To have a drink, everything gets way out of hand

Come on man, it's just you and me
I know you did it, yeah you did it
One of you and I don't care who
is gonna pay for this crime

All sinners, saints, same place
We're gonna throw away the key

All you ever had to do is ask
Think I can help, but you gotta want me to act
I can't prove it but the pieces fit
I talk soft and I carry a big, big stick

I'm gonna know if you're lying to me
I'm gonna walk it back, every last, little mistake
Except the one with the alcohol
You're trying to smile while you're losing it all
You're trying to smile while you're losing it all

Come on man, it's just you and me
I know you did it, yeah you did it
Come on man, who you trying to kid?
I know you did it, and I know why
One of you and I don't care who
is gonna pay for this crime

How the truth will set us free, and you will see
Everyone does break eventually
All the sinners and the saints in the same place
And we throw away the key
Throw away the key
Throw away the key

Living the lie
