Track Name: Make Up Your Mind
How many times must we got through this
I always though that we could resist
I could try but I’d rather not
I’m lost, just tell me what you want

I can’t fight the feeling, I’ve got no reason to
Tell me baby why am I losing you
Make up your mind stop dragging me through this
I’m sick of waiting on you to choose

You got stopped and I am falling apart now
You were gone and I am broken hearted

How many times must we recite the motions
We can pretend but it plays on our devotion
There’s no logic it’s all desire
She’s on my mind but I don’t know why

I can’t fight the feeling, I’ve got no reason to
Tell me baby why am I losing you
Make up your mind stop dragging me through this
I’m sick of waiting on you to choose

You got stopped and I am falling apart now
You were gone and I am broken hearted

You got stopped and I am falling apart now
You were gone and I am broken hearted
You got stopped and I am falling apart now
You were gone and I am broken hearted
Track Name: Electric Fire
there’s a burn in the atmosphere
and smoke in the overhead
there’s a spark running through the wires
and a fuse leading to my bed
someone get me out of here, i’m begging please
this world’s not turning out for me

there’s a buzz in the back of my mind
that keeps screeching well into the night
there’s a candle swelling in the dark
but something but it don’t seem right
there’s a contradiction constantly
a message that has got me losing sleep

i used to see
colours in everything
but now i’m wondering
is anybody watching over me

there’s a static all around the room
and a feeling that will never die
there’s a thought every now and then
that’s started this electrical fire
it’s a mystery they say to me
i’m sorry friend but i do not accede

there’s a thunder shaking up the walls
someone’s sent for another crusade
there’s a banner being waved around
and an army chanting you’re not saved
i see the irony in a crooked scheme
i’m finding out anxiety makes beliefs

i used to see
colours in everything
but now i’m wondering
is anybody watching over me
Track Name: Fade Away
It’s the silence that draws me in
whispering sweet nothings
misery, oh misery, it’s only
emptiness that i, i ever feel

i could fake it and move on
stumble through this broken world
but i sit and wonder ‘bout every little thing
so i, i’ll keep on spinning

hey what are we waiting for
the engines are running but our feet are resting on the floor
and it seems time has no melody
there’s no one to save us
we all, we all fade away

war is rising from the fringe
i don’t dare break the sound
i’m left alone, with my, my wandering mind
but i, i’m hanging on

hey what are we waiting for
the engines are running but our feet are resting on the floor
and it seems time has no melody
there’s no one to save us
we all, we all fade away
Track Name: Power Out
Let me out
I’ve been crawling on my knees for you
I’ve been cut and bruised from you
How long must I
search for something to rest my mind

All is lost now, All is lost now
I’m calling out, I’m calling out take me

I don’t feel
The power’s gone out of my life
Are we losing tough or killing time
I’m sleepwalking
I’m always trying but there’s nothing

All is lost now, All is lost now
I’m calling out, I’m calling out take me
Track Name: Drop the Cause
Here I’m trying to fool myself
into something somewhere else
I’m the grey-line, i am the fence
and now it’s started and i disconnect
again and again

i’ve lost control, i miss the taste
i don’t know how much longer i can wait
i’m losing touch and i’m losing time
i drop the cause and i give up the fight
i’m still getting by

i feel like nothing but a cheat and a liar
i know what’s coming and i’m getting tired
i’ve got two shiny pennies for my lifeless soul
i used to have reality but i’ve lost my hold
i’ve lost my hold
i’ve lost my hold
i’ve lost my hold
Track Name: Still
It’s too late I’m done
Couldn’t save my heart
It’s you I love
It’s tearing me apart
Love is lost you’re all I want

The days are still now, winter’s come
It’s been so long I’ve only seen
Sunless skies and lonely ghosts
Come back to me

I cried out oh hope
Where have you gone
I couldn’t see your face
Couldn’t feel your breath
I tried i tried
Track Name: The Star
I’ve heard the angels can fake it
they say they’re watching but sometimes they slip up
whatever happened to our memories
we were wishing, we were dreaming
leaving our lives don’t feel much like sleeping

and i wish we all could fly

did you see the mothers in the world weeping
and the children wondering why lives weren’t for keeping
i said a prayer for someone to guide you
away from your fears
i hope the lights in the lighthouse were leading

whoever chose our time could be taken
or that wishes on stars were all just wasted
