Track Name: Can We Talk
Verse 1
It’s been quite a while
Tell me how you’ve been
It’s a little strange to see you here again
Did you find the way?
Do you still believe
It was better for me if you leave?

‘Cause I haven’t changed much
Where you buried in
The wall built between us
Is just paper thin
It trembles with each word
With each little sound
I’ll scream ‘til the barrier breaks down, so…


Chorus 1
Can we talk?
I want to settle the score
Turning back the clock
To who we were before
Start it all over
If we both pretend
Can we talk? Or not?
Can it still happen?


Verse 2
It’s been quite a while
Tell what you’ve learned
Any hope of mending where the hearts concerned?
I got in your way
Though I don’t regret
Everything you’ve chosen to forget

But I haven’t changed much
Where you buried in
The wall built between us
Is just paper thin
It trembles with each word
Every little sound
I screamed yet it’s still not falling down, so….


Chorus 2
Can we talk?
I want to settle the score
Turning back the clock
To who we were before
Start it all over
Could we both pretend?
Can we talk? It’s not
Going to happen


Chorus 3
Can we talk?
I want to settle the score
I’ll return the clock
To where it was before
Starting all over
We cannot pretend
Now we’ve talked, I’m not
Coming back again

Never to happen so let’s pretend
It never happened
Oh no, it won’t happen
Track Name: A Wicked Girl and a Tin Boy
Verse1
No, please let me go
I can’t stay here where I’m not wanted
Love pulled astray and swept away
On western winds now far departed

And though we tried to talk of magic spells to use
I think it’s time walk in someone else’s shoes
On yellow boulevards with a sun that always shines
Forget promises of glory and a rainbow lining

Chorus1
Goodbye to the love I’ve known
Need to find a place that feels like home
Far from where the tale begins
Searching for a happy ending

In one hundred years you’ll see
If you ever stop to think of me
Just a memory to enjoy
For a wicked girl and a tin boy

Verse 2
So, we’ve come to know
The bittersweet way only time flows
In my chest I laid to rest
An empty tick that coldly echoes

And though I tried to see things from your point of view
I hurt you my pretty and your little heart too
In emerald cityscapes we lived not long ago
Turned from roads that carry you that I’m not meant to follow

Chorus 2
Goodbye to the love I’ve known
Wish I could have made this place your home
Far from where the tale begins
Given you a happy ending

In one hundred years I’ll find
If your smiling face comes to my mind
Fleeting memories to enjoy
For a wicked girl and a tin boy

Bridge
My world is spinning ‘round
The colors melting down
Blur to sepia again

I chose the simple route
Hollowed and rusted out
Feelings that I lost within

Chorus 3
Goodbye to the love I’ve known
Can I find a place that feels like home?
Far from where the tale begins
Reaching for my happy ending

In one hundred years you’ll be
Just another piece inside of me
One last memory to enjoy
For a wicked girl and a tin boy
Track Name: Two Weeks
Verse1
I’ve framed it up in a memory that’s captured in full focus
A moment caught in the energy of what I thought your future would be
Collected up in an endlessly paraded string of voices
And at the end of their pageantry the spotlight falls on me

But what else can I say
When I’m still not okay
Every time I remember?
Things I said from afar
Words I’ve kept in my heart
Repeating what they were

Chorus 1
“These autumn days
Where nothing stays
Two weeks will fly on by
In the blink of an eye
That’s when my dear
We’ll come back here
And do it all again
Farewell for now
I’ll see you then”

Verse 2
Did somebody block out the sun?
An eclipse stuck in slow motion
Would you be so kind as to help turn the light back on?

Is the room suddenly colder?
Do my footsteps seem to falter?
Everything that’s happened after washed out in a blur

Chorus 2
Those autumn days
Where nothing stays
Two weeks just flew on by
In the blink of an eye
They’ve gone away
But, I have to stay
The years will fly on by
In the blink of an eye
If you’re somewhere
I’ll meet you there
And do it all again
Farewell for now
I’ll see you then

Track Name: Her Name Was Holly
Verse 1
Her name was Holly
And she was lovely
In Spring, I met her by the river side
Her name was Holly
And she was lovely
With autumn hair and early evening eyes
And as she smiled wild and free
Tilting her head to ask me
Just what it was I’d like to do

Chorus 1
I said “Holly, follow me
We’ll run along the lane
There’s an oak tree waiting for us
Where I carved your name
And we’ll sit as the robin sings a welcoming tune
With the violets in a brilliant bloom.”

Verse 2
Her name was Holly
And she was lovely
We met in Summer by the river side
Her name was Holly
And she was lovely
I pulled her close and gazed into her eyes
And as she laughed wild and free
Tilting her head to ask me
Just what it was I’d like to do

Chorus 2
I said, “Holly, come with me
We’ll run along the lane
There’s a chapel waiting for us
Where you’ll take my name
And we’ll kiss as the silver bells start chiming in tune
With the violets in a brilliant bloom.”

Bridge
But winter came, red turned to grey
And fifty years passed like a day
Until one night I held her tight
As those eyes drifted far away

Chorus 3
I said “Holly, wait for me
I’ll come along the lane
To the oak tree calling for us
Where I carved your name
There we’ll sleep as the robin sings a fare-thee-well tune
With the violets in a brilliant bloom.”
Track Name: G.A.S.P.
Verse 1
Won’t you tell me how you feel
And what your name is?
Show me where it hurts
And how to make these
Demons in your head go back to sleep

Take a breath
As you count to twenty
Take a moment ‘cause
You’ve got plenty
Of time, release the things you kept too deep

If it’s too much
You can shout out loud and
Scream until your voice
Can’t make a sound then
Cry, for the sweet child you were is gone

Tear the curtains down
And break the windows
Burn the photographs
And when the flame goes out
I’ll be right here when you are done

You stood there at the line
That’s drawn through your world and mine
Until I noticed the sign that said you wanted to go

Chorus
At the end of day
I’ll pull you away
From the long way down
Let me help you now
Say you hate me all that you like
But I’m not going anywhere
As you gasp for air tonight

Bridge
I’ve seen it a hundred times before
And see it far too many times more
The memory of voices that spoke is
Just silence

Won’t you tell me how you feel
And what your name is?
Show me where it hurts
And how to make these
Demons in your head go back to sleep

Chorus
At the end of day
I’ll pull you away
From the long way down
Let me help you now
Say you hate me all that you like
But I’m not going anywhere
As you gasp for air tonight
Track Name: A Banshee Named 42
Desde que llegaste al colegio
las cosas en mi entorno ya cambiaron
era sencillo y en paz vivía tranquilo

"Esa extraña chica con lentes
sonrojada muy tímida incoherente
voy a ofrecerle mi amistad total ¿que pasará?"
gran error mío


esa maldición que te cargas
"la de la mala suerte" ya te llaman
corres y tropiezas tú eres la burla de todos

cuando platicamos no falla
alguna tragedia sucederá
me sacas de quicio con tus conversaciones raras

estresan tus carcajadas
revientan mis oídos
mis amigos al verte
corren despavoridos


y aunque me vaya del carajo tu amigo soy
aunque me pegues la mala suerte a tu lado estoy
estoy dispuesto a defenderte de quien quiera
hacerte burla o lastimar el corazón

como amigo quiero decirte nunca te rindas
mantén el alma siempre firme y no dejes de reír saltar y más
ignora lo demás


si tratas de socializar fallas
todos te ignoran te dan la espalda
hablan mal de ti inventan cosas
¡Malditas tías!

detesto la gente mentirosa
hipócritas ignorantes cerradas
a pesar de tu forma de ser
quiero tu amistad

estresan tus carcajadas
revientan mis oídos
mis amigos al verte
corren despavoridos


y aunque me vaya del carajo tu amigo soy
aunque me pegues la mala suerte a tu lado estoy
estoy dispuesto a defenderte de quien quiera
hacerte burla o lastimar el corazón

como amigo quiero decirte nunca te rindas
mantén el alma siempre firme y no dejes de reír saltar y más
olvida lo demás


debes de mostrar fortaleza
no es amistad si te detesta
te cuidaré no hay quien pueda burlarse ya

eres tan mala con la suerte
ante todos eres diferente
te cuesta tanto encajar en la sociedad
¡BASTA!


y aunque me vaya del carajo tu amigo soy
aunque me pegues la mala suerte a tu lado estoy
estoy dispuesto a defenderte de quien quiera
hacerte burla o lastimar el corazón

como amigo quiero decirte nunca te rindas
mantén el alma siempre firme y no dejes de reír saltar y más
ignora lo demás


ríe
salta
sueña
mi amiga
Track Name: Parallel Lines
Verse 1
So here is where I start
Staring down a road that that forks in two
Never knowing if the way I choose
Is the path that leads to you

Make a wish and I’ll depart
Farewell to the “one” I leave behind
And hello to winding avenues
Of a fate I hope to find

Bathed in firelight
Run through summer nights
'Til my bones give up the fight and
Fall into an endless sleep
Where our memories will unite

Chorus 1
With a northern star to guide me
Shining from afar so constantly
In your steps I tried to follow
But somehow I came to know
We are parallel lines through the chaos
Standing here side by side, but never to cross

Verse2
Hold your breath a breath
‘Cause this where the water rises
Washed away with tears of yesterday as
The daydream collapses

Still I hold my head up high
Breaking through the ever changing tides
If I’m reaching for another shore
I can’t stop dry my eyes

But the die is cast
The Present and the Past
Slipping through an hourglass and
Counting down to future days
Where our memories meet at last

Chorus 2
To the northern star that guides me
Singing from afar so quietly
Will your song be there tomorrow?
Lead me where my heart says I must go

With a northern star to guide me
Shining from afar so constantly
In your steps I’ll try to follow
‘Til the day I come to know
We are parallel lines through the chaos
We’re always side by side, but never do cross
Track Name: Bye Bye Cynical Bookworm
OPENING
I think this riddle has been causing some contention
So, listen closely now that I have your attention
And try to see through your outstanding condescension what it’s all about

The answer hidden under pages of pretension
An arrow pointing to an obvious direction
But since you say that I owe you an explanation
Sound the calling to our falling out

VERSE 1
Between the lines and in the sentences I wrote down
The feelings and the dealings swept into the background
Keeping the words up on a shelf never to be found ‘til they fade away

You lost your interest long before you reached the prologue
An ending without spending time on your monologue
And there I was choking on the only dialogue I could not convey

If this is how the story goes without the pantoum or the prose
Then take your chances on the fiction that you chose

REFRAIN
Bye bye my ever after
It wasn’t meant to be
So long my shining knight
It was nice for a while but only fantasy
Farewell my fairytale
Make a wish and count to three
Start your new chapter now with somebody else ‘cuz your heroine’s not me

VERSE 2
Let’s take a moment now to honor every detail
Descriptions and depictions chronicled in full scale
But when it passes off with any little exhale who could ever know?

Was it too much to ask for a little disclosure
Was there too much to say without your full exposure
And am I selfish for wanting a little closure right before you go?

If this is how the story goes without the pantoum or the prose
Then take your chances on the fiction that you chose


REFRAIN
Bye bye my ever after
It wasn’t meant to be
So long my shining knight
It was nice for a while but only fantasy
Farewell my fairytale
Make a wish and count to three
Start your new chapter now with somebody else ‘cuz your heroine’s not me

BRIDGE
The fable’s through, what have I learned?
“Don’t play with matches, you’ll get burned”
What follows after is still a mystery
I can’t rewrite history

So, this is how the story goes, without the pantoum or the prose
Then take your chances on the fiction that you chose
Coming to a close


REFRAIN 2
Bye bye my ever after
It wasn’t meant to be
So long my shining knight
It was nice for a while but only fantasy
Farewell my fairytale
Make a wish that won’t come true
Start your new chapter now with somebody else ‘cuz my hero isn’t you

Say goodbye now
One day the page will turn
Once upon a time for a cynical bookworm
Track Name: Left Behind
Verse 1
She took a deep breath and let her words come tumbling through
He took one more step and let his feelings come out too
It only took an instant for their worlds to be aligned
All I could do was stand and watch as they left me behind

It’s too hard to speak when I am feeling oh so small
Pretending again that I am blinded to it all
But I must be content here in a reason without rhyme
When second chances don’t come in a lifetime

If my eyes betray my smile
It’ll only be for a while
Lie and say I don’t regret it
Maybe then I’ll start to accept it

Chorus
Leave me behind
I’m fine without you
Leave me behind
It’s fine if you do
What’s one more broken heart anyhow?
Leave me behind to find each other now

Bridge
Wish I could have been braver
And let the right one in
I dreamed about a forever
That got under my skin

Verse 2
I took a deep breath and let my words stay locked inside
I took one more step and set my feelings to the side
It happened in an instant, my whole world crumbled away
All I could do was stand and say…

Chorus
Leave me behind
I’m fine without you
Leave me behind
It’s fine if you do
What’s one more broken heart anyhow?
Leave me behind to find each other now
Track Name: Doors feat. CircusP
Verse 1
Are you still there?
Cut off from everywhere
I’ve got a lot of things to say

Moving too fast
Voices and broken glass
You wish it all would go away

We took the turn watching the world outside us burn
Something I’d hoped you’d never see (you’d never see)
Now kept within the edge you cross is far too thin
Unless you’re crossing it with me

Chorus 1
A ship with a fragile hull
Build it in a glass bottle
So beautiful to view
But where can we sail to?

If change is what you’re after
Take time to find your answer
And I’ll be waiting for
You on the other side of the door

Verse 2
Are you still there?
When you could go anywhere
Letting the sunrise pass you by
‘Though I’m relieved
You stopped to stay with me
I’m not alone, frozen in time
But broken down, these gears have stopped spinning around
Something I hoped you’d never see (you’d never see)
They’re locked away, All of those words I used to say
So break the silence with a key

Chorus 2
A ship with a fragile hull
Build it in a glass bottle
So beautiful to view
But where can we sail to?
Without a sea to be found
I’ll set my sights to the clouds
And I’ll be searching for
Those magic words to open the door

Chorus 3
A ship with a fragile hull
Build it in a glass bottle
A momentary view
But where will we drift to?

A light peaking through the crack
Only the dark looking back
But I’ll be waiting for
The moment when you open the door
