Track Name: The End Of The World
once upon a time
i thought that i had my
whole life under control
now i know i can't
begin to comprehend
the things that i don't know

the end of the world
is the name of a girl
who left you for somebody else
'cause you didn't love her like you loved yourself

you'll never win when you're against the wind
in a game where it makes up the rules
sink or just swim until your arms give in
believe me, they eventually do

the end of the world
is the name of a girl
who left you for somebody else
'cause you didn't love her like you loved yourself

i hope there come a time
we can all realize how wonderful she really is
and all of her kids get a fair chance to live
in a world that is each one of ours
Track Name: Side of Me
i'm sorry if i let you down
i'm tired of causing a commotion
this time it's not only fine with me
it's a solution to the problem

i'm sorry if i let you down
i couldn't just tell it like i saw it
it took awhile for things to look clear to me

i'm sorry if i let you down
this was no simple resolution
i hope there comes a day you can see
this was meant to happen

i am just a human being
but i am living in a dream
nothings really what it seems
this is just a side of me

i'm sorry if i let you down
i'm doing whatever makes me happy
why won't you let the past be history?
Track Name: Fairytale
don't believe what you know
there's always room to grow
it wouldn't hurt to listen
i want to figure it out
and try to make it clear
its everything you wished for
there's so much to live for

i don't want to hear the same old song
i'd rather hear my favorite fairytale about the ones
the ones who would do anything they could
life was always good for them

you don't want to stay
you don't want to go
you don't know what you're missing
you know that you could be free
just listen and see
it's everything you wished for
there's so much to live for

i don't want to hear the same old song
i'd rather hear my favorite fairytale about the ones
the ones who would do anything they could
life was always good for them

the sun will rise
because it always seems to know
what it was meant to do
the same should go for me and you

i don't want to hear the same old song
i'd rather hear my favorite fairytale about the ones
the ones who would do anything they could
life was always good for them
Track Name: Illusions
i felt the sun and it was hotter
than anything i've ever felt before
i wanted more but now i'm wiser
you should always learn when you get burned

if you give up on the illusions, love
love will be your body and your soul
sometimes i lose control
we are fish inside a bowl
don't forget that

i saw the sky and it was wider
than anything i ever saw before
went to the shore and saw the ocean
i don't think i'm ever coming home

i met the stars, they told me secrets
secrets i think i everyone should know
Track Name: Breathe
i can't breathe
when everything is a burden
if i sink
i will know it was worth it
grab the hat
put in all of your problems
just like that
someone else has to solve them

you don't know who I am
how could i explain myself?
what we say and what we do
is always in and out of tune

i cant breath
when everything is a question
point of view
has turned into obsession
i've got plenty of devotion
and i cant hide any more emotion

if you don't know who I am
how could i explain myself
what we say and what we do
is always in and out of tune

if you don't know who I am
how could i explain myself?
i can hardly sell myself
to you or anybody else

how could i explain myself?
we're not who we are when we can't breathe
Track Name: You'll Be Fine
when i'm not feeling good
even though i know i should
its so hard to see in the dark
who it is you really you are
so shine some light on me

forget the pain and sorrow
things will be fine tomorrow
forgive the ones who hurt you
and you'll be fine

i could barely speak
the days have turned to weeks
i guess i caught the blues
hold onto the breeze
dont give up on me
please tell me the truth

we've all had a loss
its hard moving on
i'm worried about you
i fell into the ground
it didn't hurt so bad
not knowing what to do
but i got up off the ground
and i am moving on
i know what to do
Track Name: Waiting for a Ghost
walked with the dog
he's the one that i follow
something tells me
i'm supposed to listen
picked up a pen
and it started to happen
redefined my mind
or maybe someone else did

i was waiting for a ghost
maybe someone else's soul
to come and grab a hold of me
i am just a tambourine
moving slowly to a beat
like a wave in the sea
something has a hold of me

played with the cats for a couple of hours
something tells me
i'm not gonna regret it
stuck in my head
is a song that i don't know
i wonder who it is

words are on the wall
i realize they've been there all along
i just wasn't looking
all these melodies
have already been sung long before i
figured out that i could sing them

now that i know
i will get back to dreaming
or whatever else it was i was doing
Track Name: The Truth
i've come to a conclusion
on what we have to do
don't be part of the system
its the only way they'll lose
and when the greedy finally fall
it will be better for us all

when we realize we're all one
connected by the truth
knowing that theres nothing left to prove
everything is as much me as it is you

don't be part of the problem
respect what you consume
please help me spread the message
theres so much you can do
and when the greedy finally fall
it will be better for us all

forget the lies they sold to you
recognize its all inside of you
this is only an experiment

all this energy telling me we are all the truth
everyone needs love as much as you

everybody needs to know that love is truth
Track Name: Hidden Love
a restless heart standing on the borderline
a hidden love you don't even know about
its worth its weight in gold in measurable amounts
but it will take a whole life to find out

a wonderful way to spend a starry night
with miracles hidden by a dying light
wake up with the world, frozen by a sound
you have to look to know what you have found

i don't mind lying on the ground
its where we started off, its where we all belong
if its not enough for you, theres not enough for you

only you know what you have got to do
don't become everything they ask of you
we're always at war, even when we're gone
midnight hour is surely going to come
Track Name: Here for You
i'm all packed up, i got all my stuff
in a black suitcase that i've had for years
i have no tears cause i lost my fears
now i have the time
time to have some fun

i don't want to get a job
so i can buy things i don't need
they sold it to us as a dream
monkey see, monkey do

theres nothing left for me here
if theres nothing left for you
i can't tell you what to do
figure it out for yourself
but i will always be here for you

a better life is a simple one
with a love that flows throughout your veins
its not easy to contain
nor should it ever be
share that love with me

i don't believe in destiny
but i know the people that i meet
will always be special to me
monkey see, monkey do
