Track Name: Goodnight Moon
Life is complicated at times
Isn’t making reason of rhyme
Leaves you laying out in the dirt,
Why’s it have to be the worst?

It leaves you walkin out of the door
wanting not to feel anymore.
Staring up at inky black skies,
Goodnight to you my sweet demise

Goodnight moon, goodbye fears.
I’ll be home soon, it’s been four years.
Goodnight moon, goodbye tears
I’ll be home soon, it’s been four years.

Goodnight, Goodnight moon. X2

Life: it isn’t always divine,
They said it wouldn’t kill without sign.
I thought it wouldn’t be full of hurt,
why can’t we get what we deserve?

It always leaves you looking for more.
This place has left me tired and sore.
Screaming like there’s no one alive,
Goodnight to you my lonely mind.

Goodnight moon, goodbye fears.
I’ll be home soon, it’s been four years.
Goodnight moon, goodbye tears
I’ll be home soon, it’s been four years.

Goodnight, Goodnight moon. X2

Standing in the dark, the shadows are calling my name.
Gotta leave your mark; scared of what’s here if I stay.
Don’t get me wrong the shadows don’t scare me, it’s people on the other side.
Cuz’ I’m out lookin in, there’s so much I’m missing won’t miss the morning light.

Goodnight moon, goodbye fears.
I’ll be home soon, it’s been four years.
Goodnight moon, goodbye tears
I’ll be home soon, it’s been four years.

Goodnight, Goodnight moon…
Track Name: Mark My Words
You know how this little game always plays out
Collecting black secrets and fold-outs
In your little black journal

And you, you let me down.
In my own hometown, you let me down
In my own hometown.

You ran out when I needed you most.

Blood ink, heavy but ledgible
Heart strings play out in a murmur
Attacking us while in slumber

And you, you let me down.
In my own hometown, you let me down
In my own hometown.

You ran out when I needed you most.

Tear soaked, turn the page.
Heartbroke, turn the page. X2

Ahhh!

You ran out when I need you most.
Track Name: Photographs
These photographs hanging from the panels on the wall
All I know.
I’m moving fast. The kids are chasing me to my own past.
All I know.

When your life is fading like those photographs,
We will cling to our memories and photographs.

I’m breaking out. I’m breaking from this frame that holds me back.
All I know.
I’m looking out. The universe inside my mind controls
All I know.

When your life is fading like those photographs,
We will cling to our memories and photographs.

These photographs get me through the day
These photographs helped me find my way
These photographs, ever changing since you came
Into my life, things have never been the same.

When your life is fading like those photographs,
We will cling to our memories and photographs.
When our lives are fading like those photographs,
We hold onto our memories and photographs.
Track Name: Phase no. 2
Always waiting for the weekend.
Always waiting for the next year.
Always waiting for the next phase of my life.
Always waiting for the answers.

Never needing validation
Never needing any help
Never wanting discipline or perception.
Only I can let it out.

I won’t fall,
That means I crawl.
Do or die,
Let me cry.

Longing for reception,
I want to have a voice.
I want to feel something real, and not indifferent.
What’s the cost of this life?

I won’t fall,
That means I crawl.
Do or die,
Let me cry.
Track Name: Monet Sunrise
Chasing sunsets for awhile
Casting shadows for a mile
Leaving footprints in the dust

Blood red haze in my horizon
Will I ever close my eyes and
See a place where I belong

I've spent a long time wondering
On this long and lonely road

Left my window open for awhile
Darkness looked in, with a smile
Told me I was in for a surprise
A Monet Sunrise

Something that you've never seen before
See it now or close the door
You don't want to miss the sky
A Monet Sunrise

I set out on a beaten path
Maybe it'll help me forget my past
More and more of the same

Gotta make a name for myself
Without charity or more help
It'll be better in the end

I've spent a long time wondering
On this long and lonely road

Left my window open for awhile
Darkness looked in, with a smile
Told me I was in for a surprise
A Monet Sunrise

Something that you've never seen before
See it now or close the door
You don't want to miss the sky
A Monet Sunrise

I've spent a long time wondering
On this long and lonely road

Left my window open for awhile
Darkness looked in, with a smile
Told me I was in for a surprise
A Monet Sunrise

Something that you've never seen before
See it now or close the door
You don't want to miss the sky
A Monet Sunrise
