Track Name: Dissolve
Here I come
For you again
These times are rough
But we will send our message through
And try again
There is no setting me back

Turn it in
Pull it out
Now that things can fit
Things are going to change

Farther from love is where I go
Sinking into my dreams again
I will flow through this river
I am drowning
Drowning again
Still haven’t got what it takes to win it all

Torn, pulled, from your stump
Join me in your quest forever
Track Name: More Than Words
So far you haven’t run back to me
These times are rough and I…
These Words I say to you go so far
Deep into my heart is where I left you
I can save myself
But you will fall into a hole of nothing
Where I part

I can save you
If you grab my hand
There is nothing left
That can hold us back

There’s so many things that I can’t give up
Loving you is only one of them I can’t do
Now I have given my trust to you
Will you return
Or will this be the cause of a feud

So I stumbled on life again
Through the good times
When you are not dead
I must find a way to refind my true feeling
For what has not come
Or been said to been
Track Name: Through Blinding Clouds
Like it goes
Seek to find

You stand up straight
When I talk to you
You think that you have me
But there is no proof
Fall back on what you’ve got
And leave me alone
There is no winning if there is no control

Watch what you say to my face
There might be remorse
But I’ll still give you everything you wanted

Feel what you have done to me
The pain you give to me
Tears on my face and yours
Run into nothing
Fall into hurt that kills
There’s nothing more that I want from you
Track Name: Falling Forward
No more
Of what I got inside
Of what I need from you
You think you can come right on in
But those feelings hold you back once again
From the first day that we met
I knew it was ignorance

Falling forward once again
You can see where I’ve been
I can understand what you did
Things are going to change
Yes I know they will

Time is on your side
Feel what you’ve done
Where I’ve been
Things are going to change
Not you…… not you
Track Name: Covering Ground (1998)
You give me strength to look down on you like this every time
It seems like you have come up with a new lie in your head
You’re just not there for good

I fear you’re going too fast

Why can’t you look and turn the other way
My temperature is rising
I fear you’re going too fast for me

You look every time
Under pressure
Track Name: Give Or Take
I want to see you
See through me
Feel my heart
Feel my pain
Learn my mind
Take your time to understand me

Shoving through to obtain
Your intent is to take
And not ever give back
Lure you in and I will get back what you deserve

What you see is nothing
No meaning
No feeling
Open up
Fall to your knees
You know nothing

Shoving through to obtain
Your intent is to take
And not ever give back
Lure you in and I will get back what you deserve

Can you feel what I am thinking
Can you taste what I am saying
Can you feel… can you feel
Track Name: Somewhere Away
two places
two different people
kind of hard
to destroy them
one wants no help
the other is alone
can you try to help them
to get them back

I hope you see me
staring through that thin wall
in the power we gain
no attention

to influence
chances for them
should I rejoice
to destroy them
one wants no help
the other is alone
can you try to help them
to get them back

you want to have
some attention
pry open your chest
pull out your lungs
this will handle
nothing to be
reasons endless
these times are nothing
Track Name: Untitled In D
take chance as we open up our minds to things that never exist
holy is the word that I used to clench my fists

you will never see what has gone wrong
persecuted for life, it’s a sad song

bow your head to the one that put you through all this anguish
abolish your life and I won’t look back

you try now to make this into something it is not
my intentions were stronger
you’ve revealed to me your stain
I’ll take it as far as I can reach

bow your head down
you know that I am stronger

forced in my brain
the hate you have sent

near time for change
this change will never come
Track Name: Good Intentions
a scheming plan or pattern
this gives you in
being jealous is one thing
I am not trying to win
overcome a few steps
one day at a time
you’ll see
your ways are the ways of the blind

I’ll try to be open
I’ll try to see you in
the impossible creates the situation again

this life changes day to day
the nights you have are in turn
the way to pay
for absences and rejections
former friends
some have good intentions
but this must be the end

feeling so sorry
sleep with someone
gets you back up on your feet again
turn a face into a dream
come and face your life to be

can you
build me up again
want to
set this straight for me

can you… want to
set this straight for me
Track Name: You're Up Next
untrusted and disturbed
bent the rules so far that they broke
I left a promise
to understand my friends

now I’m going to no certain place
I’ll mix this all up
you want to see some pain
well… you’re up next

close is how you wanted it
well… you’re up next

shouting out won’t help
you were schemed into ways
I lost those who were close to me
did not come back
I am left without a trace
of who I was with my life
no one to know the truth

behind dark curtains
I draw you in
you reach back

coming close to where we can alter our lives
this is not hopeless
we can build up strong once again
no one said life was easy
until the last day we are here

you want to see some pain
well… you’re up next
Track Name: Undercover
pass…
passing through like you never seen it
pass on through
its undercover

pass on through
just like you never seen it
it is unpredicted
or did you see it

not a trace of evidence to be found
is this coincidence
straight up
what is this

just pass on through like you do

chances are your just
impossible to take hold of and set straight
gone zero days to see you
forever is at the beginning of life

pass on through like you never seen it
its undercover
Track Name: Shatterproof
to help or not want what you deserve
little thoughts derive from no confidence
we are all sealed up
we’re expected to die

our confidence is taken up
it is taken out
takes the energy right out of me

the hopeless people stick around for last
I take down my guard to see them in
we say we like everyone until its on
you are next to be just as strong

to serve and deliver the final blow
puts them in check so they will know
next time is the final round
and then they go

I fear for the next and the next to come
forever it seems they’ve misplaced their hearts
and defeated dreams when the shield is never down
no one can tell
they’re in the trap… the plan
they’ll be knocked down forever
Track Name: Everything Vs. Nothing
this is how the last came to win

with all the heat that came through this way
I thought you’d have a better excuse
you’re so demanding in a place that did nothing to you

stay
against
stay against everything they ever did
create your own sequence
loop it again

not anymore
they’ve evolved into leaders
prowling through the night
even though you don’t think we are right
for this situation or the next
we’ll conform
Track Name: Covering Ground (1999)
You give me strength to look down on you like this every time
It seems like you have come up with a new lie in your head
You’re just not there for good

I fear you’re going too fast

Why can’t you look and turn the other way
My temperature is rising
I fear you’re going too fast for me

You look every time
Under pressure
