Track Name: Trip The Wire
Trip the wire
Didn’t see it in the dark
This is so familiar
Kick and screaming down the path

Don’t you walk away
Don’t you walk away
Avoid the issue
It won’t disintegrate when you close your eyes

Don’t you walk away
Don’t you walk away
Avoid the issue
Won’t just evaporate when you close your eyes

Eyes go dark
Gaze falls to the ground
Graceful words
Are nowhere to be found
They are nowhere to be found

Eyes go dark
Gaze falls to the ground
Graceful words
Track Name: Sentiments
Like a tide
It ebbs and flows
It waxes and it wanes
It leaves your mind in tow
Like you’re tied to a submarine
Until it hits the surface you can’t control when you breath

I can’t depend on sentiments
I can’t rely on my mood
It lifts me up and it lets me down
Messes me around
I’ve got to cling to the truth

When you’re on top
Like the world is your own
When you can’t be stopped
When you just can’t be wrong

When the brain is fried
When the basket is full
That’s when you lose your mind
That’s when you lose your cool

I can’t depend on sentiments
I can’t rely on my mood
It lifts me up and it lets me down
Messes me around
I’ve got to cling to the truth

I fall, I fall, I fall
On your safety net
On your safety net

I fall, I fall, I fall
On your safety net
On your safety net

I fall, I fall, I fall
On your safety net
On your safety net

I fall, I fall, I fall
On your safety net
On your safety net

I fall, I fall, I fall
On your safety net
On your safety net
Track Name: Take Me Over
Another day ticks over
Another wake up call resounds
Like going through the motions
Only this plane never leaves the ground

Of patience there is plenty
Resolution does abound
Stagnation won’t describe it
There is up or there is down

And the time draws closer
To the day to hold account
When all is done and dusted
To what will this amount

Do better, try harder
Is that all you’ve got to share
I don’t buy that for one second
It’s gonna lead us to despair

Take me over
Into your hands

Take me over
Into your hands
Track Name: Compass
That’s not right
She said as she surveyed
Her eyes showed her crookedness and greed

That’s not fair
Even the youngest child
Quickly learns to make a scene

Some say it’s every man for his or her own
Some say that all is fair in love and war

Rain will fall
And when you’re caught in the storm
Don’t you feel it keenly then

Victims testify
That justice is required
Though they might wonder where it is

Some say it’s every man for his or her own
Some say that all is fair in love and war

Broken hearts will attest
Something is amiss
Answers polarize
Responses divide

Everyone believes in some kind of wrong and some kind of right
And the difference resides in where you’re gonna draw the line

Conscience belies we’ve got a compass deep inside
Though the points may not align we know someones gotta pay the price

Everyone believes in some kind of wrong and some kind of right
And the difference resides in where you’re gonna draw the line

Conscience belies we’ve got a compass deep inside
Though the points may not a-line we know someones gotta pay the price
