Track Name: Amazon
Note from my heart, it's bound to be a very long day
It's not cold when she's near, but lately I fear she's going home
And I heard from afar, there's a voice telling me to hold on
And I'm taking the chance, though at every glance I don't know

But lately I've been trying, oh this siren call, it's all that I have left

It's like a boy falling in love for the, the first time
Like a poet learning to carry a rhyme
She's like an amazon
Because I'm scared to death of her
It's like she's juggling with fire when she hangs around me
Life-in-death meets mariner while he's down in the sea
She's like an amazon
And I can't get enough of her

Is it just me or are things better off in my dreams
If I could live them all without second call, that's where I'd be
But this external world, it's all we've got to hold on to
So live every day, and some will say it's been true

But lately I've been trying, to chase my dreams, it's all that I can do

'Cause it's a breath of fresh air, to look in her eyes
It's the one thing I need to do to realize
You're not an amazon
No, I'm just in love with you

Not an amazon x4
Track Name: Testing Fate
You came in like a tune
A pleasant afternoon, 'til you ran away
I tried to carry you
From the dark of an old ruin, now we're testing fate

But the road keeps on turning
And leaves me with nowhere left to roam
And the fire keeps on burning
And this lost love is never coming home

How much longer must I drag my back
in this wasteland
Until the snakes and the shrews start talking again
Well I'm getting tired of the foreign road
in this wasteland
Until you rid me of this, it's over again
it's over, my friend

You came in like a tune
From the dark of an old ruin, now you ran away
How's the life that's constantly haunting you
How's the trials of yesterday's dues
and you beg to stay, yeah

But the walls keep on falling
So my last hope, it leads me straight to you
So these burdens that I'm hauling
Will be released, so my lost love, take me soon

How much longer must I drag my back
in this wasteland
Until the snakes and the shrews start talking again
Well I'm getting tired of the foreign road
in this wasteland
Until you rid me of this, it's over again
it's over, my friend

It's over again, oh x3
It's over, my friend
Track Name: Desert Sky
Sometimes I like to think that I,
Know better than I like to feel inside.
Sheltered, I'm wearing a subtle guise,
Defeated by visible welling-eyes.

Submerged, ships sink sometimes.
Calling out gods name, the captain cries.
Breathe salt, boundless Atlantic skies,
Sought solace, and all it's name implies.

I know, and you know
I'm better off on my own
I know, and you know
As we drift among the unknown.

Small town kid, blinded by mornings light.
We'd cross the stars, no end in sight.
They said your love is a desert sky.
So desolate and so bone dry.
Track Name: Hear Me Out
Hear me out
Before you shut me down

I've been keeping to myself but it's getting to me
I've been waiting for a change maybe this is how it's gonna be

Hear me out
Please just think about

What you're saying what you're thinking what we're all gonna hear
Cause there's a hundred different faces no you're not the only one here


Because a voice is good when it can be kind
Just 'cause you got one doesn't make it right
Bottom of the pit but we'll be alright
Just gotta hear my story
Just gotta hear my story


Hear me out
Before you shut me down

Oh 'cause freedom ain't free when it plays with your head
It don't matter if you're enlightened or how many books you have read

Oh you don't know my story
Oh you got nothing for me now x4
Track Name: Memories
To scale the wall, to reach the crest.
An honored man, among the rest.
His search for gold, oh he'll head west.
An honored man among the rest.

A folk song for the oppressed,
Could ignite the lust that she confessed.
He'd forgotten who those words addressed.
An honored man among the rest.

We'd sing along to old records
Laying words atop those chords
Out of pitch and out of key,
Making memories.

To walk alone, the moonlight's cold.
(To scale the wall to reach the crest)
Everyone's a story to be told.
(An honored man among the rest)
He who thought that his was foretold,
The clock strikes, we're growing old.

Veins are borrowed, a heart is lent.
Every man must end his descent.
And with faith begin the ascent,
To an honored man among the rest.
Track Name: City Lights Glow
I've always thought that the nights were jet black, December's covered in snow.
I've always thought that, you always had a knack for knowing just when to go.

But now I know
You were the city light's glow.

And I'll sit by the shore and I'll wish forever more
And I'll sing for sure until the fog rolls in.

And so the waves ring, and it meant everything when the suns rays have shown.
And though infrequent, I'll offer my laments and try and reap what I've sewn

But now I know
You left me all on my own, yeah
Track Name: Unanswered Plea (Not The Sun)
You are not the sun, you are not the sun
The light I've seen was fluorescent
The tunnel doesn't have to end

Can you sing in the choir of your masses
Among the chaste you'll reside
Your actions profane, you will hide
I've reduced the memories to ashes

And the lake in which I'll drown
Grows dark with storm clouds aloft
Granted no strength to swim across
An angel dances in gown

Static, so she screamed
Upon my ears of infamy
"Why would this happen to me?"
Became another unanswered plea

You are not the sun, you are not the sun
Last year's adolescent
A tunnel for one to descend
Track Name: When You're Gone
Come in little one, take off your dirty boots
Your life has just begun, be careful with your roots
And lay down your heart to the one who holds you close
Don't ever fall apart, go wherever she goes
And wait for the day that your narrow mind will widen
In a way let your heart be kind
And always let your heart be the one to guide you
And guard it with your life, or let it find you again

When you're gone, I'll be singing
Singing the songs, the ones that you used to sing
When you're gone, I'll be dreaming
And breathing the air, the air that you used to breathe
