Track Name: Ghosts of Providence
Ghosts of Providence

Verse1:
Hey!
You wanna go where nobody is awake,
and when they snore,
you'll feel safe,

A place where we're all,
the same,
beneath our flash of lights,
and nothing to say,


chorus1-2-3:The ghosts of providence all fear to know
they fear to see the place/way,
they've never known,
yet Within their minds is the hope,
will the ghosts of providence ever..know??


Verse2:
Hey!
You found the place,
on Washington,
a veil to the past,

The only ones to blame,
are modern men,
they need their flashing lights and plastic shells,
to remember,
anything,
at all,
Track Name: Kiss the Light
Kiss the Light


v1Shake the shackles,
from my life,
I've smoked from the pipe,
Full of lies,
Scraped and poked,
For something right,
A way for you,
to Kiss the light!!

v2Break it off,
From my sight,
Kissed the burns,
From the bite,
Feigned my love,
one more time,
They say shame is,
just the times,

c1/2 Stay the course,
and fade into form,
follow the rules and I'll fake love,
Stray to the worst
I've found my new form
I'll follow the rules and I'll fake love

Outro-Stray from the course
and fade into form
I'll follow my rules
and I'll make love
Track Name: We Once Knew Ya
We Once Knew Ya

Verse One:
I'll steal the dreams
of the ones that only
ever sleep
they'll never know
which way I'll go
their eyes are closed
they'll never know!!

Chorus One and Two:
Watch me!
as I fall!
into the sea
oh, I'll never see!
oh, You'll never see!!

Interlude-A
regret
gnaws at me
to come back home
and see you there...
I'll never hear you sing!

Interlude-B
(Kids choir)
You once held us
The warmth was there
Now you're gone
...we once knew ya.

Verse Two:
You stole the dreams
of the ones that only
seemed to care
for you
They'll never know
Which way you'll go
Oh.. I wish I could
let them know!!
Track Name: Somewhere New
Somewhere new

verse 1
Oh,
You know you're right,
tonight ,
I feel ill,

I lay,
down,
To sleep now,
So dreams can make,
you someone new,


chorus 1-2
Dance with you in their headlights,
I know how they feel,
glued stuck to their seats,
And they ask why?-why?
would you wanna be free,
when you have all you need,
in her?


verse 2
I need you to say,
this will be okay

so I can,
sleep,
again,
and again,
and wake up,
Somewhere new!
Track Name: The Burning Past
The Burning Past

intro:
oooh,
The fire burns slowly,
watch it falter,

oooh,
The fire brings out,
the burning past,


oooh,
They stand on the throne,
and watch the world turn

---
Verse1-
Ohh!
Let's stay at home
and watch the flames
burn
slowly
and fall in love
with dreams we'll never know

Ohh!
They shout out blame
Did they call your number?
Say no

---
Chorus 1
The fire!
Breaks our wild bones
Their eyes don't mean a thing to you
feel the heat inside
rise!!!
--
Verse2-
Ohh!
You crave the truth
but their throat's are clenched tight
from!
the hands
they've scorned
Deep in their minds

Ohh! oh! when the beep grows quiet
float their bins of ashes
in the sea
---

Chorus 1
The fire!
Breaks our wild bones
Their eyes don't mean a thing to you
feel the heat inside!

----

outro-
Oooh...
Let's stand on the throne
and watch their world fall

or

We can stay at home
and die alone...
Track Name: Violet Waves
v1-
The night
tears a gash
(amen)
through the lights
held by broken men

"if you must be lost
we'll be.. okay"
they pray
---
we've had
better days
my friends
it's 'cause
they cut a hole
in our heads
the hunger
of our mourning hands
dulls the pain
so we
wait in line
wait in line
again to
fall stone dead

c1:there's a call
to justice
for the ones you've lost
from way up high
again!
I'll stay in side
'cause the fire burns
and the fire calls my name

v2-let's run
to the edge
of our brains
and leap!
into the violet waves

if you must be lost
I'll be okay
they claim
then they
wait in line
wait in line
again!
to fall stone dead


c2:there's a call
to justice
for the ones you've lost
from way up high
again!
I'll stay in side
'cause the fire burns
and the fire calls my name


outro:
stay with me
I need you alive!
(noo!)

stay with me
rise from the dirt!
(noo!)

stay with me!
I know you're a lie!!
(Yess!)

Stay with me!
You're in me!
(ohh oh ohh)
Track Name: Tide of Reason
A tide of reason

I walk alone,
to the bottom of the sea,
I feel alive,
I float free,
Amongst the bodies of my fallen friends,
My woes and fears,
as dead as them,

A tide of reason wiped them out,
roared my thoughts,
as they sunk further down,
I'll sing the lies,
The ones they wrote,
And keep the truth,
in my throat.

******

see the life I've led,
Crawl into my head,

Fall inside and see,
The horrors of my past!

Know my game,
know my name,
if you see me,
you should run,

Fall inside and see,
The horrors of my past!

******

The sun is here,
the fire's out,
mourning's done,
like ashes-gone,
my heart retracts,
as my eyes turn to home,


I'm home,
I'm never lost,
The light,
from the god on high!
sent fear,
running down the hills,
I fight
I now have the will!
Track Name: Stuck in a Dream
Stuck In A Dream


stuck in a dream,
their eyes,
they wince,
I see,
but once I've awoke,
from this scene,
They'll wake,
and scream "death!!"

I've lost myself,
I find my gaze,
upon these shelves,
I can see,
The books,
Fall agape,
page for page,
nothing to say,
to say!!

********

stay back,
I'm not,
the one I claimed to be,

god,

You're lost,
and you'll never be,
awake...

in my heart,
i'll stay away,
please go back,
from whence you came,
but somehow
I'll shine again
so I wont,
stay dead,
in your head,
