Track Name: Tensions Rise
I walk forever
Down this hall
Of grey lights that drone
A buzzing call
I see an exit
Off to the side
But this is where
My soul resides

Living in the gray
Living in the gray

The tensions rise in the minds of the none
Who can see the internal bleeding
Something dies when the light of the sun
Is blocked out, it's warmth so fleeting

I have no desire to feel the heat
To resurrect the light
My body is tired, I drag my feet
But the emptiness somehow feels right.

Slipping towards the edge
Nothing to grab hold
Slipping towards the edge
Slipping towards the edge
And I fall

But somehow I survived
Somehow I survived
Somehow I survived
And bled the color
Back into my soul
Track Name: Ambient Sadness
Why must I deal with such a damper on my soul
Why must I dig myself out of someone else's hole
This ambient sadness is not of my creation
This whole situation defies any explanation

Fighting in this uphill battle is wasting me away
Fighting for whom and against what- I truly cannot say
Unsure of why I'm afflicted with such a sinking curse
Unsure of why this problem seems to be getting worse

I feel an ambient sadness coming over me
It hollows out all my feelings and leaves my heart empty
I feel the ambient sadness, a cold and dreary mist
There is no purpose that I see for it to exist

My remaining hope can no longer tread this flood
My body's grown cold; no warmth flows through my blood
All that I once dreamed of drowning under ice
All that I once lived for, wasted sacrifice

I feel the ambient sadness coming over me
I'm endlessly spiraling downward, never to break free
I feel the ambient sadness, a deluge of cold rain
Though I search, I cannot find shelter, protection from the pain

Eating away like a disease
At the inside of me
The infection permeates farther

Digging down
Digging down
Drilling
Ripping apart
An empty void that only gets darker

Falling down
Endlessly
Gaining Speed
Spiraling
Cannot see
'Cause I'm falling toward nothing.

I'm perpetually plunging in darkness
I need it to end
A crash
To let me die
Will not feel the ambient sadness
Will not feel anything at all.
Track Name: Misinterpretations
How can this be real? All this makes me feel so wrong
This hollow aching pain's been making me insane for so long
The voices are so strong I can't even understand my self
But it's happened for so long, I'm turning into somebody else

Misinterpretations of the voices in your head
I can't even understand myself, my mind being misread
Misinterpretations of the voices in your head
Don't listen
Misinterpretations of the voices in your head
I can't even understand myself, now I'm being mislead
Misinterpretations of the voices in your head
Don't listen

None of this makes sense, mixed messages from within
In a spiraling decent, I see no way that I can win
I hide it all within but I feel the walls beginning to crack
The air is getting thin, I've passed the point of no turning back

Misinterpretations of the voices in your head
I can't even understand myself, my mind being misread
Misinterpretations of the voices in your head
Don't listen
Misinterpretations I can't take it anymore
I just want things to be the way that they were before
Misinterpretations there has to be something more

I can't take it any longer, It cuts me like a knife
But fighting back will make me stronger, and I'll reclaim my life

Misinterpretations of the voices in your head
Time that I start fighting and refuse to be mislead
Misinterpretations of the voices in your head
Don't listen
Misinterpretations of the voices in your head
Never think of giving in, I'd rather die instead
Misinterpretations of the voices in your head
Track Name: Waves
Frequency and magnitude will not stay the same
Even central tendency may change
No matter what, it will always come around so
Don't let the troughs drag you too far down

Frequency and magnitude will not stay the same
But you can always try to make a change
So when the weightlessness comes as you start to fall down
Know that you can stop yourself from hitting the ground

If you can feel the waves moving you
Then you're feeling something
If you can feel the energy passing through
Well at least that's one thing

That one thing is the push that gets you through
It cleanses you of pain and makes you feel brand new
Free from all the hurt and all the hate for yourself
And the emptiness that leaves you just a cracking shell

That one thing is the push that gets you through
Even when there's nothing left to hold onto
'Cause as the tensions rise and your structure falls
A spark ignites beneath the rubble and your heart calls

You're Alive

Something pulses through your veins
And your arteries and impulses inside of your brain
Electrifying feeling that you're alive, you're alive
You're alive

Electrifying feeling that you're alive
(Pulses through your veins)
You're alive
Track Name: A Special Friend
If you're feeling down and you're wearing a frown 'cause your
Skies aren't so blue
I know a girl who can turn your world around
And help you

She'll make you smile make you laugh for a while and fill
Your sky with sun
Her contagious laughter doesn't stop 'till after
It's spread to everyone

Yet she cries 'cause people don't realize that she
Has problems too
Her smile's a disguise and tears fall from her eyes, so now
It's up to you

To return the favor, now you've got to save her from
All of her pain
Make her aware of the fact that you care and
Give her shelter from the rain

Be the difference, go the extra distance and
Be a true friend
Break up the clouds, it'll take some time now
But it's worth it in the end

People never listen 'cause her happy disposition makes
Her seem okay
So give her your ear, you've got to listen and hear
All that she has to say

And she'll come around as her sadness is drowned beneath
The sea of light
The glow of the moon makes it seem like it's noon as it
Illuminates the night

But still she cries 'cause people don't realize that she
Has problems too
Her smile's a disguise and tears fall from her eyes, so now
She needs you

She's a very special friend
Keep her close until the end

So, as you know, she had to go, and all
I have to say
Is she's a friend who's like a sister and I know I'm gonna miss her
Now that she's gone away.
Track Name: Life
Flowing through every one of us
Is a miracle of soul and science
So many people throw it away
You know they're so caught up and mindless

Chasing after endless things they think will bring them joy
Old and tired at the end, alone with all their toys

This finite time it gives to us
Is something quite amazing
So spend it with the ones you love
Don't ever keep them waiting

Love on a shelf turns to regret and you can never get the time back
Will you let it all slip away, or stand up now and act?

It's total chaos, total bliss
It's love, it's hate, it's happiness
It's everything that you can imagine
And it hurts like hell, but all is well, cause it's life.

It happens right now, so wake up and face it
Ticking away, so you better not waste it
Caught up in your emptiness
So look now and see what you've already missed

The future is shrinking before your eyes and the past is already done
Looking back in your memories, are you pleased with what you've become?

Everybody listen, let me explain
That live is more than just a mixture of pleasure and pain
It's a miracle we have and it's yours to face
So enjoy every second, cause it's more than a race

Will you appreciate the chance you've been given
To run from the herd rather than being driven through a rat race?
Now you can change your pace
Slow down to embrace the beauty of this place

It's total chaos, total bliss
It's love, it's hate, it's happiness
It's a means to itself, so choose how to use it
But never forget that we all have to lose it
Track Name: Zero Gravity
I used to worry about the future to come
And fret regretting the things I'd already done
The woes of past, present, and future all taken as one
Began to pull me down beneath the ocean

Apprehension and worry would pile on top of the stress
And it would drag me down and leave my emotions a mess
My negative outlook would feed right off of itself
And my life spiraled down into what seemed like hell

I changed my way of thinking
I saw my feet were sinking
So I grabbed a rope
And held on with all of my strength

So I let the good people around me pull me out
They may not have known, but in their help I've no doubt
And then I reached out, trying to be a good friend
But it helped me more than anyone else in the end

I changed my way of thinking
I stopped my ship from sinking
The weight of gravity gone from my shoulders
Now I'm free to fly

And there's zero gravity weighing me down
Nothing gluing my feet to the ground
And I'm free to keep on moving forward
Never knowing or caring what I'm heading toward

'Cause I've made the decision to take things just as they come
Because using precision in guessing the future is dumb
It yields only disappointment and anxiety
So I try to make it a point to plan reasonably

And there's zero gravity weighing me down
Nothing gluing my feet to the ground
And I'm free to keep on moving forward
Never knowing or caring what I'm heading toward

Zero gravity sucking me in-
to the darkness over and over again
And I throw the past over my shoulder
It can no longer hurt me or make my world colder

The oppressive worry
The repressive truth
The hollowing hell
The venomous tooth

The incessant pain
The ever-present knife
That stuck into my side
I expel from my life

From the unknown future
The newly found light
Has removed the damper
Has given me flight

There's zero gravity weighing me down
Nothing gluing my feet to the ground
It's illuminated a clear path home
And I'm grateful for this gift of shalom

Zero gravity's given me wings
Liberated me from all of the things
That used to haunt me, plague me, drag me down
So I can look past the thorns to see that I have a crown
