Track Name: Restless
Like a walk in the dark, you don't know where you are.
And you can't see through the clouds to the stars.
No one is driving and I am colliding with all that you are.
Arrows broken--you can't find me any more.

And I'm Restless. How bout you? Tired of feeling used.
Nothing and nobody else can change the way I feel.

Like and empty smile, you don't know what to guess.
With my hands tied down and heart consumed, I must confess:
I am naked, and I'm lying on the ice.
I am broken--outspoken for advice.

And I'm Restless. How bout you? Tired of feeling used.
Nothing and nobody else can change the way I feel.

Life me up. I am frail, like shadows in colour that fall upon the trail.

And I'm Restless. How bout you? Tired of feeling used.
Nothing and nobody else can change the way I feel.
Track Name: Dark Day Afternoon
Figured it out, I'm done pretending to be something that I'm not.
Everything got so dumb, I'm sorry that I lied to you, but everything I did was done with honestly the best intentions.
I'm giving up.

On this dark day afternoon, I could write you another lullaby. Because the time for sleep is soon, and when you close your eyes I'll be by your side.

Where do you go when you don't know who you are and what you want at all? What did you expect? Now you're left picking up the pieces of a hand you didn't gamble for. You're bound to lose it all because you know--it's not enough.

On this dark day afternoon, I could write you another lullaby. Because the time for sleep is soon, and when you close your eyes I'll be by your side.

I've got enough love to go around. This is the first time I've let you down.

Track Name: Falling
It's alright. I didn't say you had to change on my time. But it's gonna have to happen either way.
Say that you'll do this thing for me. Say it.

Because I'm falling down into that hole again. I'm running out of time to feel whole again.

It's fine. We didn't think that things would go this way.
And I'm blind--I'm listening to everything you say.

Say that you won't abandon me. Say it.

Because I'm falling down into that hole again. I'm running out of time to feel whole again.

You break my heart.
Track Name: Dream On
Pains and aches, through the different stages.
It was never meant to be like this--
No reflection and no happiness.
I feel like I've betrayed me...

So many times I'm overwhelmed with what I feel--
My vision sinking in this brackish-coloured ale.
And I can see the people's faces going pale at my torn-tattered state. Dream On.

She said "I'll continue dreaming as long as you are living--breathing--being."
Track Name: Over Now
I'm not afraid to let it out.
It's much too late to turn back now.

And you lift me up, and I wonder...
Is it over now? We thought it was until the end...
Is it over now?

I won't debate. I don't know how to fix our mistakes.
I don't have ground.

Have I prooved enough? Am I sober?
Is it over now? We thought it was until the end...
Is it over now?
