Track Name: Stop
I'm in and out
there's dark and light
sometimes the darkness
wins the fight
there's demons in the past
I face them down
but it never lasts
these memories come fast

I've got to stop
turning me around
don't know what's in my mind
sometimes I'm doing fine
I've got to stop
turning me around
cannot unwind my mind
not sure what I might find
oh

same is true
for all the dark
light can come inside
bring some small spark alive
I'm in and out
nothing is left or right
sometimes it's fight or flight
sometimes the future's bright

I've got to stop
turning me around
don't know what's in my mind
sometimes I'm doing fine
I've got to stop
turning me around
cannot unwind my mind
not sure what I might find
oh

I'm a circle, I'm a second
I'm a holy ghost
feelings hit home so close
nothing that I had hoped
I'm a circle, I'm a second
I'm a holy ghost
the lightness does approach
my mind tries to revolt

I've got to stop
turning me around
don't know what's in my mind
sometimes I'm doing fine
I've got to stop
turning me around
cannot unwind my mind
not sure what I might find
oh
Track Name: Fear
everything disappears
that makes and breaks in fears
they are god
they are tears

take my worries
hide me here
I am god
I am fear

bleed open, bleed in tears
give me dreams
blood in fear, blood in streams
they can fill you with my tears

break me, make me, hold me near
they're not sure they can survive the fear
all of me is yours to break
I would rather sink in faith

everything disappears
that makes and takes in fear
they are worries filled with hate
no one cares I dream in facts

fear is open, sign this pact
place your fears underwraps
everything reappears
and makes and breaks all the fears
Track Name: Everything
everything that I have done and I have seen
it comes to me

And everything that isn't true and isn't real
I set it free

you are a dream
in this world
what do we mean
in this world

and everything that ever breathed and ever bled
are things I see

and everything that grew on earth and walked on earth
can never be

you are a dream
in this world
what do we mean
in this world

and everything I haven't shown and do not know
it leaves me be

and all of this I haven't said, breaking of bread
it leaves from me

you are a dream
in this world
what do we mean
in this world
Track Name: Entrance
I am entering
in your eyes
we are entering
come inside

be my hallway
my opening
be my doorway
come to me

I am willful
in your eyes
we are willful
come inside

be my passage
my opening
be my gateway
come to me

I am ready
I am shot
hold me steady
I haven't got

nothing ready
love is sought
I am ready
I am caught
Track Name: Hurt
I'm inside
I've closed all of mine
lock the doors
and try to hide

I've hit bottom
on this ride
stole these favors
your wicked lies

I can hurt you
try to survive
I will know you
you'll confide

you don't know me
no blood inside
you can't see me
you lost your guide

you can't feel me
trouble collides
I can hurt you
try to survive

I'm inside
I've closed all of mine
lock the doors
and try to hide
Track Name: Light
pleasantries
do well indeed
at balls where guests pray
on their knees

trees of grandeur
sprite at night
making shadows
against the stars so bright

talking truly
out of sight
to understand
what's good and right

trees of grandeur
sprite at night
making shadows
against the stars so bright

what can you or I give life
be what may there's always light in this life

trees of grandeur
sprite at night
making shadows
against the stars so bright

we are
we're all alone
in this light
we are all alone
in this life
we are all alone
in the darkness of this night
and we are all alone
in the light of this life
