Track Name: Stuck
Round and around you go
Where you stop nobody really knows
I just sit back and enjoy the show
Wait 'till it's too late to let you know

Spendin' your life livin' for "better-thans"
Well, my friend, there's been a change of plans
Your path is written in the sand
Please don't deny my open hand

So far away from where we started
I've changed, you've changed, nothing stays the same
Please don't break my heart again
I've changed, and you've changed, but the memory remains
Stuck here with the memory of what you said, what you said
What you said is what you meant

I don't have words to say
Got no pill to take your pain away
Just some good news to share, if I may
You think I've slapped you in the face

So climb aboard this is my favorite ride
Feels so good to be justified
Yeah, it feels good just to be alive
Forever here right by your side

Stuck here with the memory of what you said
Melody of your words goin' round in my head
I can’t forgive you if I can’t forget what you said

What you said is what you meant
Track Name: Love But Dread
Well I'm here again, the place I love but dread
But you tell me to come boldly
But I come instead disgusted with myself
Just amazed that you're still with me

(Tell me why...)
Why don't I do exactly what I say
Instead I do whatever I feel
Abuse your love for me to serve myself
Same old story kills me but I know that you're here
I know that you'll hear me when I call

Well I’m here again, the place I love but dread
Didn't think I'd be back so soon
I must have gone to far, to think you'd love me less
For doin' exactly what you told me

Here again, the place I love but dread
I close my eyes and you're there with me
And you hear my words, as the tear roll down my face
I don't deserve this love or to be here in this holy place
Every evil I gave to You, Lord, You’ve taken from me and forgiven
Track Name: Wastin' Time
Let's take a ride through the country side
Cool breeze, electric pale blue skies
Got the windows down, kicked in overdrive
Wave to the world as we pass them by

Here we are just wastin' time
I did my best that’s where you draw the line
I must be out of my head, must be out of my head tonight
Wastin' time

You look surprised, man, you shouldn't be
Cool bands are changin' history
The ones you hate, they've done a lot for me
Don't really care what you think of me

Here we are just wastin' time
Tell myself everything is just fine
I must be out of my head, must be out of my head tonight
Wastin' time

Here and now's where I want to be
I know there's somethin' right with me
An individual with liberty
You can't run but you sure can hide with me
Track Name: Off the Hook
Vaguely, I think I remember your name
Still, I wish I could just walk away
I know you didn't do much for me
Your eyes, they gaze into mine; they're like chains
Your words, your words bring me pain
So I fade away to a place
Somewhere void of your face

At least I'm foolin' myself, so I'm off the hook
You know my conscience feels quite good
I believe I'm doin' what I should, yeah

Angry, you always make the first move
And I'm stuck, stuck in a world filled with you
Yeah, don't you feel sorry for me?
Yeah, I heard, heard what you said
But I saw, saw what you did
I can't love you that way
Can't love that way

At least I'm foolin' myself; I'm off the hook
Yeah, my conscience feels quite good
I believe I'm doin' what I should

Who will be thankful when you're gone?
Track Name: Close Your Eyes
Hold on to my hand, don't be afraid
I want to take you to a special place
Put a big smile on your face
All pain has been erased for good
I lie here helpless but you don't care
Just glad I noticed you always meet me there
And listen to me share
My words which can't compare to words from you

Close your eyes, fall asleep
And I'll carry you through your broken dreams
Close your eyes, fall asleep
And I'll carry you all the way home

So let's move mountains of any size
Look to the heavens with hands raised to the sky
Our voices lifted high
Let's praise the Lord above with love

Don't ever let me go
Keep tellin' me what I know
Forget about myself and watch your love be shown
Some day I'll let them know
Some day I'll let it show, you're my hero
Track Name: Need You Here
I don't need to know where you've been
Where you've gone or
What you’ve done or what you’ve said
All I need from you is my life fulfilled and my dreams fulfilled
Is that not what you meant?

(Need you here, I want you...)
Won't leave you, do you understand?
Close your eyes, hold out your hand
(Carry on)
I'll show you the world

All I seem to know is where I've been
Where I've gone
What I've done or what I said
You say you had a dream
And it seems to be far better to dream than see them come to be

(Carry on)
You're all I need to carry on
Track Name: All About Love
Excuse me mister, gotta a little story that I'd like to share
Hey little sister, you're so lonely, "Oh, if only he loved me"
I found a love that's never gonna let you down

It's been a long, been long, long time since someone showed love to me
Been a long, been a long, long time since someone showed love for me

It's all about love, I want you to know
Sweet are the sounds, can you hear them, baby?
I'll take you there
This love will never let you go
(It's all about love)

So tell me brother, lost your lover to another?
And you can't seem to bear the thought
Oh, how you've fought for a reason to live
Days of joy are few and far between

Sweet words of love...

I'll take you there
This love will never let you go

It's all about love, I thought you should know
Sweet are the sounds, can you hear them, baby?
I'll take you there
This love will never let you go
(It's all about love)
Track Name: August
Beautifully plain, perpetual rains are fallin' down before me
A fatal mistake, forever forgotten wholly
You hear me

Clouds without water with banter they move
Forecast is calm vain words ring smooth
August will come and save the truth

Why do fools toil when gifts must be freely given?
Answer this question, won't you?
And the wise believe lies
But the child gives ears to listen and speaks words of wisdom
He hears them

Hold up your hands, look to the sky
All becomes clear when you close your eyes
August will come, you'll never die
