Track Name: mind control
i will never forget the sunlight when it’s shinin down on me
but then it’s gone and nothing’s ever seen
i’m just a few steps from destroying myself, losing all sanity
cause when i break there’s nothing’s there for me

ohhh
the lies are promoted
the truth is demoted
the mind is controlling
the seeds already sown in

all the light that’s in my vision slowly fades away from me
now it’s only through the darkness that i see
all my demons are kept secretly close to me
the things that they say, you wouldn’t believe

ohhh
the lies are promoted
the truth is demoted
the mind is controlling
the seeds already sown in

it’s mind control x4

ohhh
the lies are promoted
the truth is demoted
the mind is controlling
the seeds already sown in—
Track Name: you can have the world
i’ve seen alot of things
so i stop and think
all about this dream
i can make you believe
you can take my hand
i’ve got a heart to lend
rest your weary head
you’ll be safe my friend ooh

as you’re making your way on your own
wondering when you’ll be home
you’re coming home, ooh

if i say i’m wise
then surely i’m blind
do i have the time?
well i guess i’ll try
spirits in the sky
and they’re taking me high
never gotta question why
with me all the time ooh

as you’re making your way on your own
wondering when you’ll be home
you’re coming home, ooh

and they’re saying
you can have the world (repeat)

as you’re making your way on your own
wondering when you’ll be home
you’re coming home, ooh
Track Name: moving on
remember when your friends would come out to play
instead of just sitting and wasting away
all those bankers they better get paid
losing my mind in a nice sort of way

i’m moving on 4x

i’m no longer stuck in the lies
i’m spreading my wings and soaring so high
i used to barely even get by
now i’m even makin my momma cry

i’m moving on 4x

bridge

i’m moving on 4x
Track Name: my wayward friend
will you sell me your dreams?
do you have some to spare?
see through your eyes for a moment
and breathe what you breathe
all the strings of fate that you’ve sewn in, the ones unseen
despite all the hate you’ve been holding, my wayward friend

my wayward friend x4

come with me i’ll show you into the abyss
beyond good and evil cause here they don’t exist
the tormenter becomes the tormented it’s just how it is
and hell is everywhere you look my friend
when you focus on it

my wayward friend x4

the mind just drifting away
like waves on the ocean
no one is here to stay
we used up our time

we used up our time x6
Track Name: fade
can you imagine
losing a child
when the bombs are dropping
and you don’t know why

no i can’t cause
i’m so privileged
what a great thing
just to close your eyes

close your eyes
let your mind fade x3

in a way i know
what it’s like
as i make my way
through the same old lies

but i’m older now
just a little wise
if you learn to care again
you can read the signs

close your eyes
let your mind fade x3

and i guess it’s not my time yet . . .

close your eyes
and let your mind fade x3
Track Name: borderlines
what is real defined on the borderlines
like the morning light, but it’s all in your mind

you go back in time and you realign
when it’s realized there’s no need to fight

roses are red violets are blue
only cause the mind tells us it’s true
come watch the silver spoon bend for you
only on the borderlines, we’re waiting for you

you always had the light but insist to deny
you can read the signs, oh it’s such a crime

we are born so blind in a world so fine
you get lost sometimes, they come home sometimes

roses are red violets are blue
only cause the mind tells us it’s true
come watch the silver spoon bend for you
only on the borderlines, we’re waiting for you

what is real defined on the borderlines
like the morning light but it’s all in your mind
Track Name: the reaper
son, i know you’re on the run i know the evil things you’ve done
son, i know you’ll listen soon cause you know your time is up
when the reaper says you’re done

i mean, what can you do when hell follows you all around
and the reaper is your best friend he knows you can handle fate
he’ll get you with the little things

don’t you fear him make him fear you instead
the reaper’s comin round the bend and you know what he’ll do

the summer rain on your soul making you wish that you had one
ever think you’re just too bored all the while life’s out there changing without you

the reaper never left your side not even with the sun that shines so bright
but you got it figured out, everything’s a nightmare that leads back to you

don’t you fear him make him fear you instead
the reaper’s comin round the bend and you know what he’ll do

and your father said, last i heard he was out living the life he earned
but money can’t buy you happiness and that’s what i call the little things

he’ll get you with the little things just the little things
he’ll get you with the little things just the little things
he’ll get you with the little things just the little things
he’ll get you with the little things just the little things

don’t you fear him make him fear you instead
the reaper’s comin round the bend and you know what he’ll do
Track Name: every saint
there once was a man who walked the same old road
walked it his whole life still don’t know where it goes
and as he got older he then came to know
for all that he gave never shown love his way

he renounced his god and threw his cross away
never again will he be a slave
to the ignorance that makes insane the sane
and now he never runs away, that day he embraced the pain

if every saint’s a sinner then god has the only throne
that’s a lonely road that i won’t walk alone 2x

there’s no such thing as fate, no less no better way
if there is a god, then he’s a lost soul like me
and death is the only fame, no pain no sympathy
and that’s what it means to be close to god, to me

he searched around the world, he gave in to his hate
and all his enemies will soon come to pay
an eye for an eye, that’s what he would say
awaiting the day, for him to kill again

if every saint’s a sinner then god has the only throne
that’s a lonely road that i won’t walk alone 2x
Track Name: mainstream hollow

Track Name: the only thing
they say i have too many feelings
and that i don’t know what to believe in
life is funny, skies are sunny but it don’t shine on me nooo

is it real what you’re hearing?
when i tell you what im feelin
that i love you, yeah i love you, i just wanted to love you ooh

but you’re just playing with my heart x2
and i loved you from the start
i just gotta let you know

people searching for their meaning
but you’re the only thing i’m seeing
people scheming, i’m just dreaming and it’s all about you ooh

should i deny my emotion
feels like i’m lost out on the ocean
and why do i notice, i want you to know this
you’re the greatest friend i know

but you’re just playing with my heart x2
and i loved you from the start
i just gotta let you know

i’m an old soul so pardon me
if my feelings are blinding me
i spent my whole life running away
but now there’s something new that’s inspiring change
