Track Name: Savior Or Sin
Sure is a rare soul gets on the path to my heart. Boy it's a hot road, better move fast if you start.
You know who you are, I ain't gotta call you out. Now you're in this far, are you really pulling out?
Here 'neath the weight of what could be savior or sin, look in your eyes says you don't know where to begin
but you ain't gotta talk, see we are one and the same, so i know every thought that goes coursin' through your brain.
Ain't no telling what will come if we keep on, but no use running 'cause the damage has been done and now this ain't just fun anymore..
I know the dangers of treading water so deep, but I ain't a stranger to being washed out to sea
And I could turn back now and still probably reach that shore, but what if i keep swimming out and don't fight this anymore?
Here 'neath the weight of what could be savior or sin, look in my eyes says just go ahead boy give in
But I ain't gonna speak, see I know you feel the same. I can feel the heat, it's been coursin' through your veins
Ain't no telling what will come if we keep on with this, but no use running 'cause the damage has been done and now this ain't just for fun anymore..
Track Name: Left For Dead
The sun is setting on the life we used to know, not sure where we will go from here but i'm ready to go
now you're acting funny, was it something that i said? A penny for your thoughts my dear, ten dollars for your head
now fill me fully, or baby leave me for dead.
A new sun rising, new horizons to pursue. Will I go it alone my love or will i go with you?
Too many questions, no idea how to reply. I only know I won't be riding fences 'til i die
So fill me fully, or baby leave me for dead. Let me go hungry if you've only stale bread
'cause it's all or nothin' now, heard what i said? leave me for dead. leave me for dead.
it's fill me fully or leave this body for…
Then you look at me and your eyes speak loud and clear, "my darlin' it takes two and you ain't pulling your weight here.
oh how long must you make me pay for what i done? no i ain't been living perfect but i'm not the only one
so fill me fully, or baby leave me for dead. let me go hungry if you've only stale bread
'cause it's all or nothing now, heard what i said? leave me for dead, oh leave me for dead. it's fill me fully or leave this body for…"
Fill me fully or baby leave me for dead. Let me go hungry if you've only stale bread
Yeah don't feed me your fear, did ya hear what i said? Leave me for dead, leave me for dead
it's fill me fully or leave this body for, fill me fully or leave this body for, fill me fully or leave this body for dead.
Track Name: Classic Combination
It was a classic combination of alcohol and frustration. You were low, she was easy, and as a free man you thought you should act freely.
Funny how something that means nothing can change everything.
You don't deserve this kind of treatment, but my heart always seems to drown out reason. And I can't help but to envision you touching her skin like you do mine,
you know it kills me every time. Funny how something that means nothing can change everything.
It was a classic combination of alcohol and cheap persuasion. And I should just let it go, but my heart keeps saying no, yeah my heart keeps saying no.
Funny how something that means nothing can change everything. You say it's nothing, but it feels like something 'cause look at everything…
Track Name: The Scales (part I)
You reached out to me but I was not around. Can't help feeling like I might have let you down.
Well now there's nothing I can do to set you free. If there's some lesson here to learn it's hard to see.
But the dark will enlighten me.
Can you hear me though the distance now is great? Use your heart to listen, feel it radiate.
True, I've taken you for granted my old friend. But now you need me and I'll be here to defend you.
Well the sun is gone, but the storm will breathe new life into the dormant seed.
And the dark will enlighten me.
Always have all the answers, and I tell you so. Nothing in this world can phase me, I am in control.
And yet I lie awake all night, afraid of all that I don't know.
My dear libra now the seas are growing rough. All hands on the deck, still it's not enough.
'Cause as your scales are tipping back and lurching forth, near impossible to steer or stay on course.
And now out here stranded in the middle of the storm, we long for light to keep us warm.
But you know the dark will teach us more.
Thought I had all the answers for you even though my once oh-so-steady hand now wavers. If I'm in control,
why do I lie awake all night afraid of all that I don't know?
And in time, even inside the blackest room, eyes always adjust. Be patient and soon
the dark will enlighten you.
Time I stopped giving answers, started letting go. This self-inflicted pressure could soon crush me so, instead I'll
rest my head upon the shoulder of all that I don't know.
Track Name: The Scales (part II)
The lightning in your eyes, unblinking clear and wide, let me know. No situation's grim enough to ever dim that wild bright soul.
Do you know that I wept when I heard that you were kept in this place? So good to finally be here now and see your face.
And what else can I say with this plate glass in the way, through these short black phones? Other than they may keep you locked away but you are not alone.
And when darkness closes in, if you feel yourself begin to doubt your mind, just don't you ever let yourself for that your heart defines who you are.
Track Name: Ugly In The Light
clarity's eluded me the entirety of this plight. i held myself up like a saint just fighting the good fight
but standing here before this mirror i see another side
in the dark i dwell and always tell of lessons there to learn. i took a seat and patiently awaited there my turn
but with the spotlight over me i'm starting to discern
i'm ugly in the light, ugly in the light. in darkness i'll reside, so ugly in the light
so shoot my love up like a drug and feel its glorious high. your head will spin as you begin to feel the stars align
but soon you'll wake, your heart will break, and the beauty there will die
i've something to confide, i'm ugly in the light. so in darkness i'll reside, too ugly in the light.
Track Name: Scorpion
Reach out your hand now, go on take mine. Enter the water naked and blind. Leaving our armor here on sand. It's not in our nature,
but what the hell, let's take a chance.
Now that we're out here with no land in sight, starting to doubt if I'll last through the night. Thought you were treading deep water with me,
in fact you've been standing on a solid rock beneath you…
Goddamn scorpion man, now you've got me drinking. Goddamn scorpion man, I try but I can't stop thinking of
You let go of my hand so I wouldn't get your heart or your head wet.
I know there's nothing as scary as to trust in another who's so much like you. All of their demons may well be your own, ain't no lies to hide in when they already know
You goddamn scorpion man, now you've got me drinking, goddamn scorpion man, I try but can't stop thinking of
You let go of my hand so you wouldn't get your own heart or your head wet
But when you look back for me here in these waters black, you know exactly what'll be reflecting back
And in time that tide'll rise and lift your feet, and with nowhere left to stand you''' be stranded at sea
Goddamn scorpion man, got me drinking you, scorpion man I try but I just keep sinking into This wasn't my plan, but that's what i get for swimming with
a scorpion man, tell me, have you been drinking? well see, scorpion man i know you can't stop thinking of me
well it's stinging you and that's what you get, for getting this scorpion wet...
Track Name: Arm's Length
Is something wrong? Let's talk about it. Just sit on down, we'll work it out. I'll be the best friend you've ever known.
But this is not a two-way street, and I won't give you anything would allow my weaknesses to show.
'Cause I will lie just to keep you off my case. And I will die with many secrets to my name. Honey I'll do anything to remain always at an arm's length.
I know you wish I would play fair, but I just won't, I wouldn't dare. Some lessons don't need to be learned twice.
Don't try and give me that look, I'm taking only what you took, and I am done with playing nice.
'Cause I will lie if it helps in saving face. And I will die, taking secrets to my grave. Honey I'll do anything to remain always at an arm's length.
Track Name: Live Wire
The edge came suddenly, caught me off guard. But I fell willingly, and I fell so hard. You gave the ocean new meaning to me, and in your arms was all I needed to be.
And when you stood, your eyes to the sea, somehow I could, I could feel you staring at me.
Fast forward seven years, eve of the last, where indecision lie a coal in the ash. My body felt so hot it stung and it burned, so how was it that ice delivered my words?
And where you stood, I couldn't see, and yet I could, I could feel your eyes penetrating. And there I stood, my face to the fire.
I'm sure you could feel me hot as a live wire.
And so eleven came as fast as ten went, our hearts were tired and our patience all spent. And darlin' when we sat in front of that house, could not believe the words came out of my mouth.
Then there we were, so hard to breathe, I wasn't sure what was suddenly happening. But there I was, now facing the fire, I knew because I was hot as a live wire…
Track Name: Other Side
wake my love, the day is new, the sun has come to wash over you
another chance to let this go, and let me in, and let us grow
but i've hurt you and so you've the right to keep your walls so strong, so high
but if you change your mind
i'm waiting for you on the other side
