Track Name: Fool
Take it out on me
With everything you say
All your pleasant words
Remind me I’m a jerk

I’m not fine
I am dead
Half awake in bed
Stuck in “what if” dreams
There’re things I should have said

And with Fall on the way
I can’t take the pain
Nothing is the same
Especially Halloween

‘Cause when we’re right
It’s a scream
Still in disbelief
Why’d I let you drive away that day

I want to walk in the rain
I want to hear when you sing
I want to see your pretty face
Every single day

At a fountain it began
Why did I let it end
You and I weren’t meant
To be so far away

I should have followed you home
(How’d I let you get so far away)
Track Name: Baseborn
think of all the lies you fed me everyday
think of all the times you let me feel afraid
remember all the nights you screamed and swung at me
when you wouldn't clothe me the school sent me away

you think that I forgot the times you called the cops
lied and said I hit you, begging you to stop
remember when you threw me out into the dark
twelve alone and scared...and sleeping in a park

no you can't claim me
i'm broken free
i'll make them see that I'm not like you
and you're not like me.

now that its been years you want me to forget
now i'm doing well, you're bragging to your friends
now its time for me to make sure that you see
all the wicked sins that are your history
Track Name: Goodnight Nigel Spunkmeyer
Bring down all the false pretense about the things you’re seeing
I know that you’re not a racist you just have your reasons

You’re running out but where will you go
You’re leaving town where will you go

You say that you’re all alone, that these are not your people
Brown skin and indigent, you know they’re not your people

You’re running out but where will you go
You’re leaving town where will you go

Run along and find your new friends
Can’t you see that it’s over
Say that its over
Cause I let you go

Godspeed now but where will you run
When you see that its over
Say that its over
Or I’ll let you know

The running off part was easy
Save your tears now for the show
Cause you know
This was the last time I’ll go
Track Name: Mary Of God
Tell me what you know, Tell me what they did
There's something in your eyes, A hint so desolate

I'm asking you again, Tell me little sis
I'm not one of them, There's nothing to defend

They said that you were wrong, Made you feel alone
The speck is in their eyes, This den of hypocrites

And I can't stand to see questioning your "being"
The person that you hide is a treasure not a vice

But it can't come from me, Its time to set it free
Open up and see the beauty in the rage

Will make you want to scream "Damn why can't you see
I'm not gonna change, there's nothing wrong with me"

I don't want to fall asleep, Its not alright with me
If you are somewhere suffering

I'll never know the pain you feel or if your wounds will heal
And it is not for me to say

That you should turn the other cheek but you can turn to me
And I will give you all I can

And we'll face the end

I heard that you had run away, I hope it wasn't shame
That made you feel like you can't bear

All the nasty things they say and the looks they gave
They sadly show their ignorance

I just want to take your hand and finally be your friend
The kind I should have always been

And we'll face the end, We'll face the end.
Track Name: Signals
Just a boy, in a daze
So happy that you came my way
Please don't go, please just stay
You know I like you here with me

Do you even know what I was thinking
When you finally came up to me
You took a seat, you told me your name
And started laughing about some guy who's smiling at me
"Don't make a scene," You said so softly
Before explaining that you'd be the one to save me
Please just save me

Do you even know what I was thinking
When you finally got up to leave
I couldn't speak, so I took out a pen
I started writing all the words I'd wished I could say
There were just three, I started with "no" before your name
Then I took that pen and wrote the word "stay"
Please won't you stay
Track Name: The Ripple Effect
I don’t wanna go
And live my life working all day
All I want’s to stay
Away from what they think is safe

Your words they pound in my head
Their good intentions They're offered from the dead
And I think I know what you meant
They’re making money but they face the day with dread
Their definition of success makes me want to fail

I don’t wanna go
And live my life working all day
All I want’s to stay
Away from what they think is safe

Your words they pound in my head
Their good intentions They're offered from the dead
And I think I know what you meant
They’re making money but they face the day with dread
Hating all of it
Saving me a place
Beckon to the grave
Track Name: E-Major
Your eyes are like a symphony that needs no sound
A rush, a leap, a fall and I forget the ground

I want you to know

Your smile crushes me and I hope that I know how
To make you understand that I'll never let you down

I want you to know

If you want it or need it
You'll never have to say it
A bad day, call me
i swear I'll make it easy

I'm counting, the days left
Until I get to see you
And breathing for nothing
When you're away from me now

You're never alone

I want you to know
You'll never be alone
Track Name: Runaway
I can feel the grudge you hold inside
See resentful stares you fail to hide
We all know we’re not all right
Let’s clear the air tonight

I was just a kid, I made mistakes
When she put me out I stayed away
I heard you say you felt betrayed
Called me a runaway

Surrounded everyday by drugs and thieves
That was my vacation from poverty
Cried alone no one can see
Never be weak

Focused every thought on just one thing
Knew exactly who I’d never be
Made my demons my family
And they kept me clean

Runaway

A twelve year old can’t be a man
So I refuse to make amends
Isolation was my plan
I made it to the end

I don’t want to feel this way
Love you so but its too late
I know you’ve lived a life of pain
And I’m sorry
