Track Name: Please Don't Waste My Time
Please don't waste my time
I'll keep my conscious open
And I wonder
Am I even worth your time
Please don't waste my time
I'll keep my conscious open
Do you even know what you do to me
And does it matter what I say to you anymore
Track Name: I've Imagined Words
I've Imagined words
I could be a couple miles from happy
I've Imagined words
you without me
well I can tell you that I'd rather get this out of the way

Do you even know what you do to me
And does it matter what I say to you anymore
Now there's a reason why I'm standing here
Oh you're just too much for me, yeah yeah

How am I supposed to know
if I should come and get it
Am I supposed to know
yeah how you feel about it

If you never tell me
and you never let it show
Track Name: Caught In a Wave Again
Caught in a wave again
it pulls me under
sputter, breath is leaving me

Loud thunder
Is breaking apart the trees
And I wonder now
Will the wind disturb the leaves?

So face the window shutters fall
and the rain
will cover us all

And your shouts reflect against the wall
slowly they carry me
softly swell me out into the hall

Now Baby
If I stop going will this keep rolling
Baby
You say you're hungry but not for me
Baby
Ah ah ah ah

Flame flame burn against my heart
Cauterize my love
It will keep me fighting on
though the troops I carry are hardly a match for your words

So let's call a truce
cause you know my heart
wasn't made to split two

Baby
If I stop going will this keep rolling
Baby
You say you're hungry but not for me
Baby
Ah ah ah ah
Track Name: Queen
Though I'll treat you like my princess
Every Day
Maybe then i'll have a chance of going to heaven
or something
Lately it's been hard for me to stand on my feet
When I still need so many things for relief

And I wonder (And I wonder)
Am I even worth your time your time
Falling asleep beside the window pane at my right
You didn't even wanna talk to me after you lied you lied
You just wanted to stay there looking inside of my eyes

I've been needing you to help me
get through the week
while I'm spending all my time
tending to the queen

You know I'm gonna need a purpose
trying not to seem so obsolete
You make it worth it baby

And now I wonder if you need me or want me to drive away
All the attentions on you there's no affection for me
Track Name: Bigger Picture
Lies they often take disguise
In eyes they creep up from behind

The world is slipping out from under my feet
While I can't see what's in front of me

I don't need a confirmation
I am still entangled in a realization
You are just a part of a bigger picture in my mind
Cause all my thinking leads to you

You went sand made me believe
That all that time it was meant me

But I went covered it over covered all that you used to be
Something keeps on pulling me under something I don't want to see
Track Name: Artificial Controversial
I am waiting by the door
Can I see you anymore
I said is it the time
Is the time right now
Cuz I've got to know
Yeah I've got to know

Now tell me do you run the world
Do they answer to your call
Are you the one in charge
Cuz I've got to know
And can you tell me what to do
Just so I don't have to think
Do you know right from wrong
Are you just like me?
Are you just like me?

They are calling
Can you hear them
Or is that your illusion
I said is that your illusion
Today I promised on my life
that I'd never take my life
It's worth it just to keep on trying and trying
I promise
Track Name: Fabricated
I remember when
Love was so genuine
But now It's fabricated
And I'm feeling down yet again

I just want something real
But I just looked too hard
So now I've found myself
With a pretty face and a big ordeal

no I don't wanna make it worse
But she's so attached and I don't wanna make it hurt
for the both of us

I guess I'm having fun
When it's all said and done
But is that what I want
When I could try to trust her again

I know she trusts me so
And I don't wanna let her down

My pretty face and my big ordeal
no
I don't wanna make it hurt
But she's attached and I don't wanna make it worse

In the edges of my mind I find the signs
You and me we seem to be aligned
Track Name: That Night
You've been running to him because you can't keep following me
and I've been wasting my life in the hopes that maybe you'd see
Oh it's been a long long time since I've looked in your eyes now I'm free

Cuz i'm tired of the way I'm living my life
i've been alone cuz I didn't wanna see this die
Even though that night didn't feel just right to me

And now you're changing like the weather
your smile picks me up from my feet
And I can't wait till you're the summer
so we can share the sand on the beach

Oh it's been a long long time since you've looked in my eyes now I'm free

Cuz I'm tired and I'm ready
And I won't let it get that heavy on me
Oh it's been a long long time since I've looked your eyes now I'm free
Track Name: Oxytocin
Always slowly
the bonds grow strong
and we grow fonder yet
for another
It feels like we are only losing touch
with each other
and in-between the sheets I find I'm lost with a lover

Lust is a blessing
Though it takes you from behind
and without it I won't have it
and with it you will be mine
So i take the little blessings
and I treat them as they come
Pray on the constellations
That I won't have to let you go

Oxytocin
The artificial feeling that constructs
A special meaning
That you're no longer one, but one among all the others
I'm sorry it has come to this
