Track Name: The Garden Part II
You think you’re not the one for me
Well I’m gonna spend my life
Proving that wrong
Proving that wrong

Remember all those late nights
we spent yelling loud
well they’re all gone now
they’re all gone now

selfishness acts of fear
why have I brought you here
coat covered collapsed lung
my god what have I done
broken mirrors in a broken home
my god is all alone
can’t clear my thoughts or flood them out
but you already know that now

I can’t make the past go away
but I can bury it
somewhere it can’t be found
can’t be found
can’t be found

watch as the garden grows
fading back there behind the rose
Track Name: My Land
My land has gone dry
and there's no need to lie
It is me who has taken a leave
I never be all I can be

I've picked all the berries off the tree
but I saved all the good ones for me
what happened to my land
it has slipped right from my hand
where are all the good men now

the more I try the more I'm hurt
but the truth is I've never done my part
I'll leave with a heart
two sizes too large
cause I never shared the love that's inside
is this really the end of the ride
Track Name: With Every Kiss
With every kiss
I love you more
in every shape
in every form
this place is somewhere
I now adore
thanks to you
thanks to you

You're not a bother
or a bore
I hear you laugh
I hear you snore
there is nothing
that I want more
then be with you
to be with you

You rub my body
when it's sore
watching tv
series galore
if this is anything
I'm sure
I'm in love
yes I'm in love
with you
Track Name: The Garden Part I
oh the garden grows
oh my eyes are holes
oh yet no one knows
oh you keep me on my toes


I would murder for love for blood I would
You can not deny what I'm capable of
I would take a life If I could If I could
the question isn't if I could but if I should If I should

broken mirrors broken bones
oh my time spent all alone
the worst side of me is never shown
but with this told my cover's blown

I would murder for love for blood I would
you would not deny what I'm capable of
I would take a life If I could If I could
only if I should I should I should---
Track Name: Gotta Sing
I gotta sing about the world around me
I do it to just get right through the day
I gotta sing about the world around me
I just need to hear the music play

and when it swirls around my head just like a dream
it spills out and it not quite what it seems
but it reflects a bending light inside of me
so we sing along until we feels happy

but now the music's slowly dieing and the words are getting soft
the breath is just a breeze moving through the trees
and now it’s just a whisper that is heard through the fog
just wishing and waiting for the next filling song

so grab a cup a tea and curl up next to me
the show's about to start let me tell you where we are
setting up the time and place move the hair that's in your face
and so we just let go and feel the song
Track Name: Life's A Lie
when i started out this ride a smile is all you'd see
flying high inside my mind on the drugs you like to leave
time went by you left my side but still I couldn't be
so i just went on until i saw the path in front of me


I know that my mind is running dry
and I know something just ain't right
my life seems to be running out of time
my whole life is a lie


went down to a place that I never knew
you told me to talk to Tony he'll know what to do
but when I got downtown I was shaking in my boots
seeing what I saw that day would put any man in a noose

you know if I could try and do it again
I would maybe take my time this time
so when you see me at the staring line
you know this time I'll do it right

now the clouds are rolling in and weather getting cold
it would seem like time to turn back all the goods are sold
I've might've gotten thing far by doing what I'm told
but now I ride on this new path forgetting about the old

I know that my mind is running dry
and I know something just ain't right
my life seems to be running out of time
my whole life is a lie
Track Name: Time
allow me to introduce myself
we met some time ago
before i had to run off
chased miles by a doe

i feel our time slipping by
the clouds leaving the sky
this time i'm afraid
solid plans have been made

so fare thee well
i really must be going
the time has come for me
to say goodbye

i thought i had made it back
to where i once belonged
it seems i was mistaken
the doe is back and strong

(and with every passing hour
my thoughts are growing sour
just let me do this one thing
for our love to really [sing])

so fare thee well
i really must be going
the time has come for me
to say goodbye

the time has come for me
to say hello
Track Name: What It Was All About
I used to think it was all about the tangible things that you could hold in your hand
i used to think without a doubt that all these people in this town were in my plans
I didn't think that things could change that people change and the world would change right with them
I didn't think this song could change it's meaning or it's tone or it's rhythm

but now I see that feelings go and then they come right back with the seasons
now I see that the sky was clear and quickly all those clouds made their way in
and I could cry and i could scream and i could stay inside my dreams but what then
I could say I've seen my ways that I will change and that I've learned my lesson

but who am I convincing?
it sure as hell ain't you
as you walk the way you do
right out the door with all your stuff in that bag
and now I see what it was all about

when you would lay your head upon my chest
we both said that we would do our best
to be better for the other

in your arms is the safest i am
feeling as safe as i simply can
when all that can harm is there in our bed
is really just stirring inside my head


i fight off all those monsters
with a smile and to trust
you to be true i know that you must

your eyes are so kind
they lovingly tell
it's no one else but for me that you fell

and now I see what it is all about
