Track Name: Suddenly Something
Waiting here for you to call
I've got nothing but time
Lay on the floor, feet to the wall
Keeping calm, I walk a thin line

You won't see me struggle
Just for a chance to get a glimpse of us

What could be?
The question still remains unseen
What could we become if all this became something
I want so bad, yet I can't have
Are we friends, lovers or nothing?

I can't sleep when you're not here
You give me air to breathe
I grab a pillow and pull it near
Just give me something to believe

You won't see me struggle
Just for a chance to get a glimpse of us

What could be?
The question still remains unseen
What could we become if all this became something
I want so bad, yet I can't have
Are we friends, lovers or nothing?
Track Name: Another Strange Trip (On the Road)
These miles, as all the lights go flying by
We're past the places we should have gone
And yet time ticks by

We wonder when we get the chance to
Realize its time to say good bye and reload
Another strange trip on the road

And then another night life flashed before our eyes
Were thinking its all new but somehow it still feel like home
And yet we still go

It's just another hard chance to get things right
And in the end we will know what all this was for
Another strange trip on the road

One by one the towns all fade away
In the end we knew we had our time to play
And still time ticks by

All the lights are flashing green to red
How the hell did I even get outta bed
Another strange trip on the road

And then another night life flashed before our eyes
Were thinking its all new but somehow it still feel like home
And yet we still go

It's just another hard chance to get things right
And in the end we will know what all this was for
Another strange trip on the road
Track Name: Blue Skies
I'm cozy and warm, dreaming of blue skies
You're here in my arms, dreaming of blue skies
We're dancing in the clouds, dreaming of blue skies
We've never been this high before
As we start this again

You're cozy and warm wishing for blue skies
You're here but you're gone wishing for blue skies
You're off into the clouds, wishing for blue skies
You've never been this high before
As you end this again

We can't go back to where we started
This life off track, all brokenhearted
I'll miss those days, I know
But, I won't let it show
So, we're starting again
Track Name: The Wandering Man
Untie the ship, I'm leaving
On my way, unknowingly
A million places to see
None of which expect to see me

My eyes become weak as I sail the night
Nowhere to sleep but on board
A toss between hunger and firelight
I close my eyes as I lay on the floor

The nights are long, I'm lonely
The piece of mind is killing me
No safe place to call my own
The wandering man can have no home

My eyes become weak as I sail the night
Nowhere to sleep but on board
A toss between hunger and firelight
I close my eyes as I lay on the floor

Nobody seeks me
Nobody needs me
Morning will come
Followed by setting sun
Yet, I still remain the forgotten one

And I'm coming home,
I'm coming
Track Name: Breakaway
Listening, wondering
What does this life mean to me?
I have been suffering so long

Waiting here, patiently
There is so much to give in
I will not do this anymore

Cause I cant see light thru the glass anymore
There is no life left in these walls
If I breakaway cause I cannot stay
Something outside is calling
Thats when I refuse to fall away

Withering, fading
The light grown more dim everyday
I have been suffering so long

Growing tired, cannot sleep
But, what is the point in trying?
Im done cause theres no more hiding

Cause I cant see light thru the glass anymore
There is no life left in these walls
If I breakaway cause I cannot stay
Something outside is calling
Thats when I refuse to fall away

I'm on the inside looking out
You're on the outside looking in
Taking this from the inside out

Cause I cant see light thru the glass anymore
There is no life left in these walls
If I breakaway cause I cannot stay
Something outside is calling
Thats when I refuse to fall away
Track Name: D.O.A. (unreleased demo) **bonus track**
You suffer the cost.
When all this is lost
You see you had plan anyway
You knew what it took to bleed the pain away
...and you're still fighting
...and you're still screaming


You wont see me hiding, as you turn to stone
Pleading that all hope is gone
You wont stop crying, cause you're on your own
You set yourself up to die alone

If I give you my help
Will it feel like it felt
You see you had plan anyway
I don't wanna be the knife that gets you right
...and you're still fighting
...and you're still screaming

So what if it's goodbye?
Why did you not try, to make things right.....
