“Something Mystical”

Giving into this reality
Wonder struck by complex simplicity
Prioritizing all hopes and dreams
Imagining all possibilities
Staring at the sky with one chance to decide
Visioning the thoughts that others see
Compare it to your selfish fantasy
Every narrowing opportunity
Is closing in killing your destiny
One turn at a time
You’re going to leave it all behind
It’s an overwhelming strain
Of chances closing gates
Left puzzled, and vanquished
Promptly devastated
Of how clearly complicated one day is
It’s all over then it’s gone with a blink of an eye
There’s a sudden dead end
That short run we have
Hides with every turn we decide
An awakened reality
Of death staring back at me
Sheds light on my beliefs
And forgives everyone I’ve denied
Death is staring back at me
Love all around, it all happens now
Track Name: FREAK

Still passing through signs and running over the clues
Carefully following every line you drew
Can’t forget all the times I had with you
Why can’t I tell you my thoughts I wish you knew?
Why cant things be simple not just another regret?
Why cant I move on, why can’t I just forget
How your just another person I met on the weekend?
There must be something special fucked inside my head
It’s so unusual
I’m refusable
You’re so suitable
Suitable for me
And I am such a freak
Wasting every minute
Trying to forget it
Cause I can keep no secrets
Just keep collecting regrets
When I sleep, your spirit
Pays my dreams a visit
And every waking challenge
Aches like you can’t imagine
I can barely sleep
When I start to think about your comfort that I seek
And how it’s making me act like a freak
When I start to think about your comfort that I seek
How it’s making me act like a freak
I’m acting like a freak
“Living in the Dark”

Open up your heart
And let me reach inside
So I can see your thoughts
And I can find out why
If living in the dark
And dreaming through the light
Is how we fell apart
Or am I just a lie?
Unlocking the door
And walking through your mind
So I can see what’s wrong
What’s wrong with my life?
If I could be the one
Holding you up high
Hold the key to your heart
I could feel alive
It hurts when you’re in love
It hurts to realize
Living alone is a hard way to survive
Living in the dark
And dreaming through the light
Reading through your thoughts
I’m wishing they were mine
I’m wishing you were mine
Track Name: APPRIZE

Now you’ve made your living
But forgot about your life
Just a slave to the trade
As days go by
The clock keeps on ticking
Every second passes
Every hour fades away
The earth keeps on spinning
Day becomes night
As we are blinded
Apprize everything
The end’s growing closer
Can you decide how to spend your time?
When it’s all over
Will you look back at it contently?
Apprize everything
