Track Name: Jury's Out
We hear about the story of a day
Learn about the actions of a man
Pictures of the feelings of the night
Then off they go to find you some release

The jury's out on what you can remember
The jury's out on what you can't forget
The jury's out, I always will remember
The jury's out, I never will forget

I wanted to give everything you yearned for
Certain it was what was in your heart
I told them that I was only learning
Taking things as far as I could go

The jury's out on what you can remember
The jury's out on what you can't forget
The jury's out, I always will remember
The jury's out, I never will forget

The jury's out, deliberating freedom
Looking close, trying to find the blame
Now they're back, I look into the darkness
I hear them calling out my name

The jury's out on what you can remember
The jury's out on what you can't forget
The jury's out, I always will remember
The jury's out, I never will forget
Track Name: Cut It Loose
All you wanted out of this
Was the chance to prove yourself
Taking what you never had
In this place that I can't stand

I don't know where she's gone
I wanna know where she's gone
So hoping like I can call a truce
So hoping like I can cut it loose

Did you find a better man
A way to rebuild broken plans
Do you wonder how I am
Or did we go too far for that

I don't know where she's gone
I wanna know where she's gone
So hoping like I can call a truce
So hoping like I can cut it loose

I had it all
But I had enough
I had it all
But I had enough

But I don't know where she's gone
I wanna know where she's gone
So hoping like I can call a truce
So hoping like I can cut it loose
Track Name: Human Raft
I get the feeling I've been here before
I try to remember why I'm back for more
I'm a human raft and I'll keep you afloat

I'd like to believe that I'm better than you
But I've changed so much I'm not sure if it's true
I'm a human raft and I'm nobody's fool

Used hope as paddles
Took water on like shame
Been lost for hours
Sink without a trace

Each to their own but I don’t want to know
I can't understand why I'm feeling so low
I'm a human raft and I speak from the heart
I'm a human raft and I'll keep you afloat

Used hope as paddles
Took water on like shame
Been lost for hours
Sink without a trace

And I'll walk through your mud
I'll struggle with your demons
I'll bury all your fears
And take hope from your religion
If I could save you
Wish I could save you

Used hope as paddles
Took water on like shame
Been lost for hours
Sink without a trace

Used hope as paddles
Shook water off and swam
Found life and grabbed it
Floating while we can
Track Name: In The Sun
Say the word and I'll try and sing another
Song of loss and emptiness
Reaching out into open arms before me
Take away the loneliness

We run, we run
To be with the one
In love, in love

So gone, so young
Lost in the sun
In love, in love

In a place that I feel like I belong
I start to wonder what it means
With a world rushing so fast around me
Nothing's ever what it seems

We run, we run
To be with the one
In love, in love

So gone, so young
Lost in the sun
In love, in love
Track Name: Break Her Down
It started out OK; a brand new start, a new beginning
The two provided ways back in the fold, a chance for living
She would have never believed the rate of change, or how his tone would darken
Mistook a need to breed to please for love, a mother's deep obsession

All chance of turning this around
Has broken down into the ground

You changed your name, a claim to care, your aim to be accepted
You've thrown it back but yet it seems the split was what you wanted
In a world void of innocence, the babe is lost, the future's wasted
Better get right out of here before the last chance leaves forever

All chance of turning this around
Has broken down and faded out

Now its time to turn her world around
Now it's time to put your hatred down
There's a future that is burning out within your hands

If there's nothing left for you to say
Because she could never make you change
And in every single move you make
You break her down

It's time you put you're hatred down now
The worse you act, the worse that she'll turn out

You can't see her anymore
You can't touch her anymore
You can't hurt her anymore

Now its time to turn her world around
Now it's time to put your hatred down
There's a future that is burning out within your hands

If there's nothing left for you to say
Because she could never make you change
And in every single move you make
You break her down

You cannot stifle her future
You've got a child to consider
Track Name: Took It All
Say you wanna taste it, but you can't face it
Look into the eyes of an open scar
Pictures in the papers of how you raped it
Just to make a profit but it's gone too far

Saw what I wanted
Took it all
Now I'm on it

Pay the price for freedom but you don't believe them
Tryin' to live the dream then it all got lost
Stuck inside a nightmare, nothing but darkness
Tryin' to find the light but the doors got closed

They're still out there waiting, beggared and broken
But you can't see them coz your heart turned cold
You say life is unfair and that you don't care
But one day it's gonna catch you and you'll burn in hell

Saw, what I wanted
Took it all
Now I'm on it

To the end
To find a better life
We play pretend
It goes around again

Never meant to hurt them
Wash the blood from off our hands
We're all to blame

Saw, what I wanted
Took it all
Now I'm on it
Track Name: Be Someone
Gonna stay inside
Because everybody wants a piece of me
I’ve fallen ill from praying
Maybe because I only close one eye

Two fingers in my glass, it slips right down
Two fingers in your face, I can't see how
Two fingers down my throat, it's over now
It's never enough to be enough
You've gotta be someone

Gonna run and hide
The people here are pointing straight at me
I know what they’re saying
Tonight I won’t be leaving here alive

Two fingers in my glass, it slips right down
Two fingers in your face, I can't see how
Two fingers down my throat, it's over now
It's never enough to be enough
You've gotta be someone
Track Name: Upright Dogs
You had a head for heights
But now you've lost your nerve
You've got your feet back on the ground
But you still can't say these things out loud

That you wanted more than this
And the only way's skyward
But you're so scared of breaking out
Coz the drugs don't faze the upright dogs

When you're thoughtful, you make a plan
It's easier in your head to carry out, no feeling, no emotion

But when you're there
It doesn't make much sense
And if you hide, you're never gonna get away

My heart is breaking over
You’re finding ways to take me for all I’ve got
And your plans to escape
To leave this behind forever

My heart is breaking over
You’re finding ways to take me for all I’ve got
For all I’ve got

In your memories, you understand
You want to go underground
To disappear like a reborn, starting over

But when you're there
It doesn't make much sense
And if you hide, you're never going to get away

My heart is breaking over
You’re finding ways to take me for all I’ve got
And your plans to escape
To leave this behind forever

My heart is breaking over
You’re finding ways to take me for all I’ve got
For all I’ve got
Track Name: Line Up The Donors
Hello, can I help you?
But it's me that needs your help
How long will it take you to figure that point out

I've been telling you
To make you understand
But till then, hello, I’m coming

Line up the donors, line em up
And if we can find a match
Take off your white coat and stitch em up
And we'll go another lap

Hello, can I help you?
You've had long enough to say what you want
Stop pretending that you've finished with your game

It's been dragging on
And now it's almost done
But till then, hello, I’m coming

Line up the donors, line em up
And if we can find a match
Take off your white coat and stitch em up
And we'll go another lap
Track Name: Pictures On The Wall
All this time still you admire me
Can't you see through my disguise
A rotten apple bitten into
Swallowed down still you approve

If we talk about it all
If we try to work it out
Is it worth it after all?

If we talk about it all
The way it was before
I'd see the way you look at me
Where is my morality?

We stare down from pictures on the wall
You long to start a family
I just want to play around some more

You turn your back and
Shut your eyes to feelings that I oft display
A love relinquished, run out wasted
I'm tired of this masquerade

If we talk about it all
The way it was before
I'd see the way you look at me
Where is my morality?

We stare down from pictures on the wall
You long to start a family
I just want to play around some more
Track Name: Smash The Lock
Here comes the day
Another literary chore
To entertain?
Or maybe make you wonder?

Why do we need to speak?
Why do we need to hear?
How do we understand?
Why do we care?

Hold on to silence
Coz sometimes, it’s all we have
Feel this disquiet
You get the feeling you’re not the only one now

The words control our minds
Our minds control our thoughts
We can’t go on like this
Gonna smash the lock

So clear your mind
Forget the things they’re saying
It’s all a game
And they know how to play it

You give yourself some space
You can only take so much
They were never on your side
And that’s what hurts

Hold on to silence
Coz sometimes, it’s all we have
Feel this disquiet
You get the feeling you’re not the only one now

The words control our minds
Our minds control our thoughts
We can’t go on like this
Gonna smash the lock
