Track Name: The Prisoner
You found a pearl on a floor made of plaster and gravel
But, you’re unsure and allow for an early disaster
Can you help me to understand the means to your condition?
I needed a better reaction, as clear as the sun in your eyes
Your moods persist and meander to my demise

You’re living in a grave with both of your hands tied
You’re young and so afraid, this is last time

It won’t be long before you collapse and surrender
To all of these hallow thoughts and your vivid illusions
Because all I see is a beautiful walking contradiction
Can you help me to understand the means to your condition?
I needed a better reaction, as clear as the sun in your eyes
Your moods persist and meander to my demise

You’re living in a grave with both of your hands tied
You’re young and so afraid, this is last time
You’re living in a grave, a prisoner in your mind
You’re young and so afraid, this is last time

Oh miserable will you ever make the change?
Track Name: Hide and Seek
You’ve climbed your tree, withered and void of leaves
This you’ve conquered, here’s where you reside
You know too well this was no place to hide
No one searches so you start to scream
Take, take, take me, take me down from here!

Oh, why can’t you see you’ve done this to yourself?
Oh, quit blaming the whole world

The slightest wind will bring you to your knees
Crawling towards your sinking pit of sand
Upon descent you promptly lend your hand
No one reaches so you start to scream
Take, take, take me, take me out of here!

Oh, why can’t you see you’ve done this to yourself?
Oh, quit blaming the whole world

No one is impressed when you’re in distress

You climbed your tree
Track Name: Catapult
Criminals don’t wander the streets alone
I confess that it’s possible that you may find me here
Paranoid, feeling so paranoid
I’ve decided it’s time to mend these self-inflected wounds
Is it too late to set things right?

I have nothing more to say to you
Nothing more that I can do

Catapult myself into the brutal ground
I discovered this ocean was a siren like mirage
Dismantled on the floor, can anyone help me?
Rebuild this tattered soul
Is it too late to set things right?

I have nothing more to say to you
Nothing more that I can do

I bathed myself with the rising tide
That drew me in and pulled me under

I fought to reach the sky, escape this angry tide
But, it is useless when the clouds and sea collide

I have nothing more to say to you
Track Name: Daylight
Lifeless on a stage like a puppet missing strings
Abandoned by the kings and queens tonight
Feeling overwhelmed by fear and iron will
Astonished by the strengths of either side
A loner on a road, I swear you’re not alone

Daylight, when I want to find the will at night
To take control of all unknown
Daylight, when I want to feel alive tonight
To take control of all unknown

Choking on the air of a brilliant emerald sky
Will only leave me hanging high and dry
So you can keep the throne and whatever else you own
I’m basking in a calm and peaceful mind
A loner on a road, I swear you’re not alone

Daylight, when I want to find the will at night
To take control of all unknown
Daylight, when I want to feel alive tonight
To take control of all unknown

Taking back the darkest nights
There’s comfort in a lullaby
Dreams evolve and come to life
There’s comfort in a lullaby

A loner on a road, I swear you’re not alone

You’re not alone
Track Name: What Have You Done?
Careless arson with a thirst for misery
Nurse your garden with a lit match and a fuel tank
Can you, can you repel the urge to ignite your pragmatic world?
You know what’s on the other side, don’t you?

Clear the wreckage what have you done here?
Felt the need to retaliate
Just to prove that no one should defy you

Blind and tortured as you wander through a maze
Whose walls keep shifting to remind those who’ve gone insane
Do you, do you have the nerve to reason with your grudge filled mind?
I don’t know
You know what’s on the other side, don’t you?

Clear the wreckage what have you done here?
Felt the need to retaliate
Just to prove that no one should defy you

Take aim
