Track Name: June in Winter
It seems so perfect in my mind
Every last moment frozen in time
The simple fact of the matter its all in my mind
Its still a lie

Here we are like the changing tide
The ups and the downs, the lovers quarrels and fights
But the simple fact of the matter its all in your mind
The fears, theyre all lies

My words fill your screen a fleeting sign
Easily ignored but it passes the time
And the simple fact of the matter they were just lies
The truth is still in my mind

(Chorus)

No one would be wiser if we have June in winter
Lets run away with the sun
As long as I remember we can have June in winter
Melt the snow with our love
Track Name: Flow
Look me in the eyes tell me what you see
Can you read me, is it me you see
Sometimes a book is hard to read
When you open the cover, do the words bleed

You're as high as the moon
stuck on the surface as I swoon
Once I build me a rocket Ill meet you there
Float among the stars just to say I was
Close enough to stare

It feel likes it's only us in the universe divide
As long as you stay right here by my side
But if we were to part upon re-entery
meet me on the ocean floor, lay down beside me

(chorus)
If I were to drown would you take me by the hand
Or would you be afraid to swing
If I were to burn would you cover me with sand
Or would you stand at a distance and scream you can't
Track Name: The Way I Feel
Let me look through the eyes of the innocence once more
Let my heart beat wildly until it's sore
Save me from the drop of a ten thousand mile fall
and maybe, just maybe, I'll find the strength to crawl

I don't always say the things I've said times before
Allow me to hold my tongue and call me a coward
but throw me to the sharks and I'll slowly learn to fish
My thoughts as bait I'll throw back each catch

We can play like children on a hot summer day
Forget about our worries and run our cares away
Before we part I've got one thing to say
Cherish this moment because it's surely meant to stray

(chorus)

I aim to reinvent the way I feel
Maybe redirect the wheel
I hope this fantasy is real
I hope this fantasy is real
Track Name: Pearly Gates
Let me tell you about a man who some time lost his way
He would go to the local bars and drink his cares away
He would stumble around the town he meant no ill will
But the towns people would shoot him looks, looks that could kill

He would sit the darkest corner all by himself
He would watch all the townspeople drink from the top shelf

and he'd say

Go on and laugh go on and play
Go on and have your way
While you waiting at those pearly gates
I won't have to wait

Every once in a great while he'd utter some words
but no one paid him much attention to his profound verse

and he'd say

Go on and laugh go on and play
Go on and have your way
While you waiting at those pearly gates
I won't have to wait

Let me tell you about a man who some time lost his way
He would go to the local bars and this is what he'd say
I've seen my share of sinners, I've seen my share of saint
They all ate off the same plate and treated me the same way

So..

Go on and laugh go on and play
Go on and have your way
While you waiting at those pearly gates
I won't have to wait
Track Name: World's Ablaze
I've seen the end of days
and all the different ways
people can be beaten to the ground

I've seen liars and thieves
and everything in between
with sounds from no where around

The world is ablaze and I can't light my smoke
the flames are cold in the fray
so I go for my bottle
but my bottle seems dry
as I hope for better days

I've seen the sky turn red
and a pack of sheep lead
by a man with a golden book

I've seen angels fall
and devils rise to power
without as much as a second look

The world is ablaze and I can't light my smoke
the flames are cold in the fray
so I go for my bottle
but my bottle seems dry
as I hope for better days
