I lost my way when I was young Never learned to compromise Cuz who I am won't let me sacrifice And she told me once I could be Oh anything at all But I never knew I had so much to lose And I loved her more than I can say And it's a shame it's not today To give me all that I deserve We loved for hours and talked for more Wished we couldn't grow old cold But nothing's fair at 17 I'm just stranger to this world I loved the way she stood so still around me Like I was the only one who let her be Making the choices like it didn't matter Never went to far without her no no no But youth is something in the past Now wisdom gathered Oh and the wrinkles no they don't flatter Gotta hold onto to something, gotta hold onto something Cuz she's pulling me down And I loved her more than I can say And it's a shame it's not today To give me all that I deserve We loved for hours and talked for more Wished we couldn't grow old cold But nothing's fair at 17 Well I don't know who I am today And I don't know where I belong But all I am is all that I deserve So we let it go, and we let it show And I loved her more than I can say And it's a shame it's not today To give me all that I deserve We loved for hours and talked for more Wished we couldn't grow old cold But nothing's fair at 17 I'm just a stranger to this world

Attic 03:26
I've been sleeping in the attic the highest room in the house Finally out of the basement away from all the fear and doubt Living high every day or at least I'm trying If there aint no stairs I'll climb the gutter to get to the top People say they want to fly all the way to the moon and I say go for it We only got one life here I was talking to an old friend in the middle of a drought Her tears dried up she broke those bad ties but still has some figuring out She is on her way or at least she's trying Life twists and turns and sometimes burns but that's what her here for People say they want to fly all the way to the moon and I say go for it We only got one life here I've been playing out on High Street people walking all around A man came by he asked if he could stay but he looked a little down and out Living day by day or at least he's trying Can't help but wonder how the world left him out in the cold People say they want to fly all the way to the moon and I say go for it We only got one life here Oh one life People say they've wasted all these minutes in their day And they long so many years for the times like yesterday But knowing this means nothing if you listen to your fears Ignoring aspirations that you've had all of these years you'll go down And you may never come back But you'll come back Oh I know it Don't listen to your fears It just takes time Don't hear the disbelief It's up to you to decide Don't lose hope Don't listen to what they say Don't lose sight No need to be afraid Don't lose your life People say they want to fly all the way to the moon and I say go for it We only got one life here

Stranded Man 03:18
Stranded man has his back to the wall As the shadows wander by Fighting their view with the best of his knowledge Keeping the change at bay And as that dark end approaches and he sees no way out He's gotta run and hide Through those memories of kindness overrunning all of his blindness That has brought him down Oh he's such a lonely man once again Oh and he takes each minute and he wastes it away Take me down I need to find some way to grow Well he says take me down I need to learn how to be a man Well he says just take it away if I can't stand on my own ground Take me down again Oh oh oh oh Standing all alone he feels the world on his back Never the product of blame Cuz his actions push away all those ones who never say What is really going on And his intentions are pure and true And it's always been his need to survive But his flaws only cause more pain and suffering He can't let it go Oh he's such a lonely man once again Oh and he takes each minute and he wastes it away Take me down I need to find some way to grow Well he says take me down I need to learn how to be a man Well he says just take it away if I can't stand on my own ground Take me down again Oh oh oh oh

I'm really happy about all of the fears I've had and All of the times I have been sad It brought me to this I don't know much about this life or the road that's up ahead I just want to be a part of this life here Is there anybody out there? Anybody listening? You say I'm crazy well I must be Is there anybody out there? Anybody listening? You say I'm crazy well I must be Well I must be I think one has to go through the ups and downs life gives you This is the time you can be glad you went through it It might be a self defense it might be a wound to mend it Might be all the times that I was mad I didn't do it Is there anybody out there? Anybody listening? You say I'm crazy well I must be Is there anybody out there? Anybody listening? You say I'm crazy well I must be Well I must be Well I must be Well I must be You'll be alright Standing on two feet now It takes some time Just act like you know how They will come around

Still Frames 05:14
Can I keep my heart at bay, still frames of what has passed, anymore Am I fracturing my time to only gain some peace of mind in the end Rising up above my shadow looking out at all that lies before I've gotta hold onto something more before this time pulls me down again As I push my love away It leaves me wandering alone But this darkness will not cover me Start to make it on my own I come back for more Oh no, don't leave me behind I just want to belong I'm just trying to breathe Free of control I've got to let it all be I've got to let it all go I've left enough of my pain and suffering behind that all my love can grow Stronger than my peers that never take the time for what they all deserve But we're all just standing still in our complicated wills to survive I've gotta open up my heart a little more until the edge disappears As I push my love away It leaves me wandering alone But this darkness will not cover me Start to make it on my own I come back for more Oh no, don't leave me behind I just want to belong I'm just trying to breathe Free of control I've got to let it all be I've got to let it all go Yes I come back for more Don't leave me behind I just want to belong I'm just trying to breathe Oh free of control Oh free of this pain I've gotta let it all be I've gotta let it all go

Basement 02:58
I remember being terrified I was just a little kid In the basement of my life everything was safe I don't want to go outside and I don't want to take a ride If I go I think that I might just die Everything is complicated I'm not even 16 My bed sheets covered in sweat and my mom's trying to run my life I remember thinking what's it like It's kinda like I've been paralyzed with a noose around my neck One step to the edge and I go to a place where i ain't coming back I don't want to live that way don't want to be stuck in that place Just one foot on the ledge and the other's an inch away Chorus I remember thinking what's it like I'm no longer a kid In the basement stuck for life wondering if this is it I just want to step outside but I don't know how to drive I'm way past 16 now just trying to find my life Chorus If you only knew just how unglued I'd become Maybe you'd ask me out If you only knew just how unglued I'd become Maybe you'd have me over for anything

Let Her Go 04:03
Going out of my mind Wasting all of time Away with what I need to do Again with where I can't yet be Thinking all that I've got Wishing all that I've had Could be with her and all her love Just give her my heart and soul again Oh what a dangerous place to be Oh holding onto this vision today Oh can I get on top of my strength to conquer what I deserve If I can let her be Let her go Take back my needs How selfish of me I've gotta find a way To start over again Show her my heart Show her who I can be Taking back what I said I've made all the mistakes That I think have left me here So far away from being with here I've gotta put it all back I've gotta try to resolve All the ways that I treated her She only wanted my love for sure Oh what a dangerous place to be Oh holding onto this vision today Oh can I get on top of my strength to conquer what I deserve If I can let her be Let her go Take back my needs How selfish of me I've gotta find a way To start over again Show her my heart Show her who I can be

Well I look to the wind that reminds me of other times Connected with more than I can speak of And these feelings move through us all calling change that we need And my change is out in the land that I haven't seen So take from the road let it lead you on Cuz you don't know where you are And all that you feel will call you home And it's this intangible place of these memories I feel That seem to make my heart believe it's real Oh no so I give into those thoughts and unlock my inner child As I'm waiting to go back home where I've never been So take from the road let it lead you on Cuz you don't know where you are And all that you feel will call you home As the days go by and I'm stuck here dreaming of you What a man never finds some place to call his home Oh what a display of innocence covered by all this emotion All that I need, all that I see, all that I want, is to find that place, find that place to call my home again

That Morning 05:02
Verse 1 The story has been burned into our brains The one about the two planes It was early in that fateful morning And they came in with out a single warning Chorus The fire the madness and all of the screams People jumping outta windows it must have been a scene I can't tell you how it was or how my heart was racing If I was there I'd like to think I would have helped them all Verse 2 The tasteless representation of it all Like a broken record we all watched those buildings fall Don't ya think they would have thought of the families at hand But pretty soon they spun it into "United We Stand" Chorus The fire the madness and all of the screams People jumping outta windows it must have been a scene I can't tell you how it was or how my heart was breaking If I was there I'd like to think I would have helped them all Verse 3 Nearly ten years have passed yet the scars remain All these new divisions even our vocabulary's changed Not to mention all of our young men overseas How many more coffins will come home before we all agree? Bridge That All of this hate brings more of the same We can't keep living like this All of this hate brings more of the same How do we move through this? How do we get along? We have to move on try to be kind Try to remember but never forget Those we love and those we lost And those on the other side ..on the otherside

Love has called me on Every single day it seems to change Each time again I look her in the eyes and try to smile But it's the cold mystery The stains of my heart can't let her And it's the road that calls me on Makes me try to see a better me If you ever cared about anyone If you ever cared about me If you ever opened your heart To all that you could be If you ever looked at the reasons For turning all your fears into blame Maybe you could let someone in Instead of playing the game The journey it never conquers My belief in truth, it can't let me down like you And even if I falter I'll pick myself back up and follow through Cuz it's the essence of my heart Not to let it fall apart And here I stand surrounded By more than I could ever ask for If you ever cared about anyone If you ever cared about me If you ever opened your heart To all that you could be If you ever looked at the reasons For turning all your fears into blame Maybe you could let someone in Instead of playing the game Love, love, don't turn me down Once again Change, change, change will rearrange all my heart Oh no and fade away
