Track Name: True Blood
I'm the rock and you're the sea
I want your love to swallow me
C'mon yeah. C'mon yeah. C'mon and show your hand
I'm the bite and you're the blood

You're the still before the storm
You're the pulse between the breath
C'mon yeah. C'mon yeah. C'mon and show your hand
You're the wait and I'm the fear

I may live the longest time
I may never again find
A taste of what I'm meant to feel
With you I'm real

I'm the shadow; you're the sun
I steal the light; you set us free
C'mon yeah. C'mon yeah. C'mon and show your hand
I'm the shadow; you're the sun
Track Name: All I Wanted
You went away; you took away
You took away my happy
You went away as if to say
As if to say I am nothing

Just yesterday you had to say
You had to say "I am leaving"
You went away as if to say
As if to say I am nothing

You said that this will be the last time we will kiss
You said you always wanted something more than this
But all I wanted is; All I wanted is you

This empty room; this empty bed
This empty world I inhabit
And all the things I never said
I should have said I am stupid

Just yesterday you had to say
You had to say "I am leaving"
You went away as if to say
As if to say I am nothing

You said that this will be the last time we will kiss
You said you always wanted something more than this
But all I wanted is; All I wanted is you

All I wanted is; All I wanted is;
All I wanted is; All I wanted is you
Track Name: Pretty Girls
Cast adrift in a boiling sea
Open wounds that are left to bleed
A pretty girl did this to me
Pretty girls are pretty ugly inside

They can take the very best of a man
They will use it any way they can
Break his spirit and break the man
Pretty girls are pretty ugly inside

Who's gonna take out the garbage tonight?
Who's gonna pick up after you?
You say that you are sorry but I
Don't believe a word you say

They just use their looks to get by
They don't get it then they start to cry
They don't even have to try
Pretty girls are pretty ugly inside

Who's gonna take out the garbage tonight?
Who's gonna pick up after you?
You say that you are sorry but I
Don't believe a word you say

Pretty girls are pretty ugly inside
Pretty girls are pretty ugly
Pretty girls are pretty fucked up inside
Track Name: My Own Skin
I know, I know it's over now
I know, I know it's broken down
I know I can't say anything
It won't make a difference

I see, I see it's time for change
I feel, I feel I feel the pain
I know I can't do anything
It won't make a difference

I am drowning in my own skin
I am falling into the void

Go on, go on and jump that bridge
Go on, go on and crash your car
Go on, go on lay down and die
It won't make a difference

I am drowning in my own skin
I am falling into the void
I am drowning in my own skin
I am drowning in my own skin
Track Name: Monster's Ball
My heart is a muscle
Pumping blood into my veins
No sign of love lives there
Nothing left for you to claim

I gave it to a heartless girl
I live alone in an undead world
Love built on lies and lust
Came crashing down in misplaced trust

So put on your finery; put on your smile
And fake it 'til you break
Courage of convictions
Was my mistake
Love is the devil
Dressed as an angel
Go fuck a stranger
At the monster's ball

Broken once, shattered twice
I didn't heed my own advice
Hope was stronger than my will
A fool to care; a fool I'm still

My heart is a muscle
Pumping blood into my veins
No sign of love lives there
Nothing left for you to claim

So put on your finery; put on your smile
And fake it 'til you break
Courage of convictions
Was my mistake
Love is the devil
Dressed as an angel
Go fuck a stranger
At the monster's ball
Track Name: The Damage Done
How can I explain to him
He's just a child he can't understand
The only world he's ever known
Has left him now she's not coming home

You've broken a promise
Made him homeless
Made him homeless
Broken a promise

Just like me you family had no choice
When you arrived they lost their voice
Now you watch your mother breaking down
At the fragile minds all around

You've broken a promise
Made them homeless
Made them homeless
Broken a promise

The damage done
The damage done

Now I'm taking out my wary heart
With a coldness I learned from you
I'll hold it out for all to see
And burn the words that I once used

You've broken a promise
Made me homeless
Made me homeless
Broken a promise

The damage done
The damage done
The damage done
The damage done

You've broken a promise
Made us homeless
Made us homeless
Broken a promise
Track Name: Be
Be still...Only in this moment
Be still...Only in this moment
Wounds will heal this flesh will grow
As you fill...
Wounds will heal this flesh will grow
Your heart with love

Be still...Only in this moment
Be still...Only in this moment
Wounds will heal this flesh will grow
As you fill...
Wounds will heal this flesh will grow
Your heart with love

Be still...Only in this moment
Be still...Only in this moment
Wounds will heal this flesh will grow
As you fill...
Wounds will heal this flesh will grow
Your heart with love

Wear this scar you carry with all the others
It's a mark of the man you've become

Wounds will heal this flesh will grow
As you fill...
Wounds will heal this flesh will grow
Your heart with love

Wear this scar you carry with all the others
It's a mark of the man you've become
Track Name: New
A new day. Sun is shining on my bed
Empty space. Where you once lay
A new day. Thoughts are messing with my head
When we first gave. Ten years today

Don't look back again into the dark
Dawn breaks bright and clear. A brand new start
You can make it through this
You can make it new
You can make it through this
You can make it new today

I recall the wet grass under our cold backs
As we mocked a drunken moon
Then the tears as our love slipped far away
Broken years. An empty room

Don't look back again into the dark
Dawn breaks bright and clear. A brand new start
You can make it through this
You can make it new
You can make it through this
You can make it new today

You have all that you need
Inside. Set your heart free
You have all that you need
Inside. Set your heart free

You can make it through this
You can make it new
You can make it through this
You can make it new
You can make it through this
You can make it new
You can make it through this
You can make it new today
Track Name: Poison In My Blood
I howl into the wind
"Make me feel again"
Snow falls on my face; it's so cold
"Make me feel again"

My chest holds a stone
It's colder than the snow
Filled with broken moments spoken
How can I make change?

With poison in my blood
Poison in my blood
With poison in my blood
Poison in my blood

Standing on your shore
Waiting here for hours
Waves break, tide pulls back out to sea
How can I make change?

With poison in my blood
Poison in my blood
With poison in my blood
Poison in my blood

Waiting for change. It will free me
Waiting for change. It will come
Track Name: With Love
One life to live
One gift to give
One path to follow home

So long in the dark
So tired of it all
So pleased we were together once

Thankful for the child we made with love
I'm OK. I'm OK. On my own

I don't want to fight
The time is now
Let the future unfold

Thankful for the lessons learned with love
I'm OK. I'm OK. On my own

Go your way with love
I'll go my way with love

I'm OK. I'm OK. I'm Ok. I'm Ok. On my own

Go your way with love
Go my way with love
Track Name: Welcome To Your Life
I'm waking to a new dawn breaking
I'm looking for a bright white light
I'm stirring like a new born baby
Hello, welcome to your life

I'm moving, wanting, wishing
I'm looking for a spark to ignite
I'm seeking what I've been missing
Hello, welcome to your life

I'm here; alive
Show me the road ahead
No fear; survive
The sum total of life has led me here

I'm dreaming my eyes wide open
I'm dreaming of sunny days
The road sign up ahead reads
Hello, welcome to your life

I'm here; alive
Show me the road ahead
No fear; survive
The sum total of life has led me here

Hello, welcome to your...
Hello, welcome to your...
Hello, welcome to your life.
