Track Name: Hypnotized
Verse 1:

Hard to give back the words she shoved down your throat.
Harder now to keep them down, but still you can't let them go.
And she won't know, but doesn't it show?

She Gives you the feast you need. A feast of opportunity, but you won't eat 'cause you're too busy, choking on words that she didn't mean.
You won't be well 'till she can tell.

Chorus:

I can't find you anymore. Where'd you go, what's left behind?
You've emptied to your soul. Don't you know that you're so blind
if you can't see the beauty that has defined
your state of mind.
Lost in your own design.
You're hypnotized.

Verse 2:

I try to ask and understand whats going on inside your head.
I think the pain's beneath your chest, but you won't say I can only guess.
I wish you knew, I'm here for you.

Chorus:

I can't find you anymore. Where'd you go, what's left behind?
You've emptied to your soul. Don't you know that you're so blind
if you can't see the beauty that has defined
your state of mind.
Lost in your own design.
You're hypnotized.

Bridge:

You've lost your smile, you've lost your food.
It won't be long 'till we lost you too.
You're in a trance, you're hypnotized.
This thing is eating you alive.

Chorus:

I can't find you anymore. Where'd you go, what's left behind?
You've emptied to your soul. Don't you know that you're so blind
if you can't see the beauty that has defined
your state of mind.
Lost in your own design.
You're hypnotized.
Track Name: Ephemeral
Ephemeral

Don't waste your breath on me.
What you say might mean the world, to a bunch of other girls.
Those sweet nothings you speak,
Though they're meant to fill my heart, make our love a work of art,
They're just nothing to me.
You may wish that I could change, that I could be rearranged.

But why is it wrong, that all my love is saved for the sound of a song?
I hope you knew it had nothing to do with you.
Your heart was so fragile I didn't know, it needed my love and couldn't beat on its own. But I've found that my love is ephemeral.
So I did you a favor and let you go, so I did you a favor and let you go.

He thought that if he tried.
If the words escaped his lips, then he might start meaning it.
It didn't stop his eyes.
While they wandered to other girls, she could still only hear his words.

He didn't know that she cried. Took her love and left her with nothing inside.
He thought she knew he had other loves to tend to.
He longed for the day that he wouldn't need to do anything else but to live his dreams, that didn't include loving her unfortunately.
He thought he would love her if he didn't let her go, but if he finally did it was ephemeral.
Track Name: Apocalypse
Verse 1:
I'm looking out for the sun, looking out as we speak.
The temperature rises to 101, bringing droughts we've never seen.
THere's a zombie by the beach! Go look if you don't believe me.
Don't look to close or you might meet, that up and coming Tsunami.
What is it that the bible said?
As believable as rapture was, the Mayans may have been right instead.

Chorus:
We can't waste anymore
of our time waiting for an open door.
This life might be missed
Standing by for the Apocalypse.
I would love to run into the sun
with you by my side, come on the countdown has begun.

Verse 2:
All the sadness all the war, do we even know what we're fighting for?
All the crime and all the fear can only mean the end is near.
We need action we need a plan, maybe return to the holy land.
Not much time left to do or say in the words of RENT 'No day but today!'
This is no time for ricin' solo
The apocalypse is on it's way so throw your hands up and say YOLO

Chorus:
We can't waste anymore
of our time waiting for an open door.
This life might be missed
Standing by for the Apocalypse.
I would love to run into the sun
with you by my side, come on the countdown has begun.

Bridge:
R.E.M. was right, the earthquake kicked it off last night!
They say the comet's on it'd way just like the dinosaur's last day.
The flood is rising from the floor, we've got 4 minutes to save the world!
Like every song this year said, 'Don't worry enjoy tonight instead!'

Chorus:
We can't waste anymore
of our time waiting for an open door.
This life might be missed
Standing by for the Apocalypse.
I would love to run into the sun
with you by my side, come on the countdown has begun.
Track Name: Petty Things
Verse 1:
Lower me down in the grave that you dug.
Told me it was a bed where you'd give me your love.
I didn't want your heart, just the touch of your skin.
Never would've lie down if I saw the coffin.
Now the geese have flown away, I don't know how but I've been blamed.
Couldn't keep the single promise you made.
Buried me in your dirt and you ran from the grave.

Chorus:
My oh my, I think that it's time that you grow up and start to realize
That these petty things are hurting more than me.
Was immaturity and jealousy worth severing all ties with me?
With all this baggage, how can the goose fly.
I thought it was you dream to see it in the sky.

Verse 2:
I cleaned up my mind, got it back to myself.
I packed you away with other hurt that I've felt.
But you had to break in and take everything out.
Filled up my mind with more confusion and doubt.
I was drowning in your words, you wanted me but needed her.
Hadn't touched my skin in a while.
But mostly missed my my life and smile.

Chorus:
My oh my, I think that it's time that you grow up and start to realize
That these petty things are hurting more than me.
Was immaturity and jealousy worth severing all ties with me?
With all this baggage, how can the goose fly.
I thought it was you dream to see it in the sky.

Bridge:
The only thing I miss from us, is that we both knew where our own future was.
Thought after dragging me through your mess and back, thought you could follow the one thing that I asked.
To respect me and leave my music out of this.
I guess that was just an unreasonable request.

Chorus:
My oh my, I think that it's time that you grow up and start to realize
That these petty things are hurting more than me.
Was immaturity and jealousy worth severing all ties with me?
With all this baggage, how can the goose fly.
I thought it was you dream to see it in the sky.
Track Name: Winter (Remix) Feat. Dave Sycott
Verse 1:
I cannot find a solid reason, why I can't feel the warmth of the season.

Chorus:
Oh I can't let go
Of the cold that ties me to your soul.
I've been sold to this everlasting ice
And I've learned to call it home.
Learned to call it home.

Verse 2:
We start to thaw while we're in the heat, but when by chance our fingers meet
I see you're still cold as snow.
The summer comes with open arms but I"m still stuck in winter's song

Chorus:
Oh I can't let go
Of the cold that ties me to your soul.
I've been sold to this everlasting ice
And I've learned to call it home.
Learned to call it home.
