Perspective 03:36
People say the strangest things Most of the time I don't listen I watch them as they fall from grace And you are no different You'd rather shut up than claim your positions Why do you torment all them girls And even though you're acting funny Shut your eyes and ears from the world How can you look at places we've been through And say we needed more Strangely I sympathize with your situation But I've spoken too much And I've seen what became of us after the demolition Of your stupid pride Ego and passion are usually best friends With you they've created an alliance You will always be the martyr Now I'm banned from being partner In the universal game And all because I played like a guy And called it for its name You know I shouldn't take the blame You know it's always your shame Its always you shame So put it in perspective Now I'm fed up with your drama It's all a fake and don't lie You know I've been told about your kind And the next time I see you I'll no longer stop just to feel you The mercy petting's are done And even though you're acting funny Shut your eyes and ears from the world How can you look back at places we've been through And say we needed more So put it in perspective Where would we be without perspective
Wrapped in a bow The winter drops by Silence breaks couples when January comes Leaves you lurking in the night light Fingers that used to lie Leave a mouth to dry Leave the city dying And your women crying If you see the light of day You won't recognize the sun Aha aha and Catching magic in a box Won't make you live like one of us Oh you king of fools Your window's always left unshut As if the wind can bring you everything you've lost It's too late to think about it Does your guitar still play Remember purple haze I'm pretty sure you do In fact you smoked that too If you see… People have lost their minds they Left their lives behind The place on which you're standing, it isn't elevating
Not perfect 04:15
Freedom treats you Freedom treats you well Drinking all night Sleeping all day Even though your fantasies are gone Even though the love was here before Life had taught you to survive too well No one's in then no one's out It's all swell I remember you opened my eyes Now it's my turn to make you realize You're not perfect You're no perfect Things around you don't survive to tell Your cat's ran away you had it just for one day Your flowers die your plants are thirsty So do parts of your soul Can't you remind your self The way you were before? Freedom treats you freedom treats you well And life had taught you to survive it’s all swell Though things around you don't stick around to tell As long as freedom treats you well
Carried on 03:30
Your intentions were always quite crossed I knew exactly what you wanted And now it's clear That the love I got was soon to disappear My love was blemished by your egoistic ways Of keeping me near And it's no shame to admit that you are my fear But I carried on Even when love was crying out not to let you stay Carried on As my love was screaming at you go away I know that the things I gave up will eventually take their toll And I saw you take the reins out of my need for control I came across as supernatural How silly that was And now I'm robbed from my powers Caught in your fire And all because I carried on Even when love was crying out Not to let you stay Carried on as my love was screaming at you go away I loved what we had when we were together Doing whatever Lovers do when they're in love But I know you can't take it So I'll let you have it For a while I carried on…
I'm too skinny I know They think I don't eat Got so much left to show It's not deception or deceit Not filled in right places But got my charm and all And when it gets down to basics Lucky I've got you to fall Fall for me Fall for me We all have our demons Mine's out of your sight Won't let you all see'm With that look in your eyes Doubtfully beautiful in the eyes of the beholder Wish the beholder was me I'd set all my demons free And still you fell for me Fell for me Your looks are misleading Fool me once and again You touch my hand and I'm believing What we are in meant to be You find a friend Or a woman or a man by your side Until it gets to the point when There is nothing left to hide That's when you fell for me Fell for me
Jealous 03:51
She's having a baby on the second floor And you're in the living room waiting Waiting anticipating She's crying now but it won't be long And you wonder when your train will come to take you along Chorus: And you're jealous Jealous than you've ever been before You can't help it You've seen so much it hurts If I could I would Help you save your self But this battle is you own He bought her a ring Just a year since you've been gone And you say he doesn't love her It's just for show And he cares for her like you know he cared for you But your ship it never did take no prisoners And you're jealous… They won't let you be The happy girl you were meant to be Always proving you on everything you've done wrong Where's that friend in need when you need it?
Roots (free) 03:45
Promises were made but all i did wasn't meant to last Its hard to be seen when no one is looking for you I picked up a scent like a dog i followed it to the bittter end So far from home and I'm feelin' good How come I'm feelin' good But where are my roots they're tangled in the ground again The rain won't come down to feed me To ease my pain I heard enough to follow my own path But things don't work out like that do they Once in a while when I think of it my heart is broken to three Each part for every thing I love that's breaking away from me but where are my roots..
