Track Name: The Jokes On Me
Too many new leaves turned
They're all dried up now
trampled or burned

Tomorrow's getting old
the wooden hammer strikes
"to the lowest bidder sold"

Erosion has taken its toll
dissolved
I paid with most of my soul
Black hole
Now I see
the joke's on me but I forget to laugh

Opportunities were disguises
to veil consequence

Erosion has taken its toll
dissolved
I paid with most of my soul
Black hole
Now I see
the joke's on me but I forget to laugh
Track Name: OK? (Rerecorded version)
I'm Leaving
OK?
Take me out and see me
OK?
Take me out that box in your mind
for years I squeezed into it
those days are gone
oh take me out I know it's not the same

I'm seething
the time wasted
I know that it was stealing
I know
that I stand for things you will never ever see
beneath all
the bull shit that you'll feed on all day long

yeah yeah oh yeah

I'm seething
the time wasted
I know that it was stealing
I know
that I stand for things you will never ever see
beneath all
the bull shit that you'll feed on all day long

I know that it is not the same
so please
that dead horse will not get up
so leave it be
oh take me out I know I'm not insane
Track Name: Good Days (Rerecorded version)
I put on a song to bring back good days
memories recite poems to my soul again

I dare not crush heavens colours
And create empty melody

Time goes by so fast but that old line
has been said a thousand times
But just for me would you listen
as if it was the first time you heard it

hmmmm hmmmm

Frozen frames unlocked by drums and guitars
the beat reveals lost rhythms in my heart

I dare not crush heavens colours
And create empty melody

Time goes by so fast but that old line
has been said a thousand times
But just for me would you listen
as if it was the first time you heard it

And I will sing as if it was the first time you heard it
I will sing as if it was the first time you heard it (Time will take it all)
Yeah I will sing as if it was the first time you heard it (Time will take it all)
I will sing as if it was the first time you heard it (Time will take it all)
Track Name: I Belong Here (Feat. Melody French) [Remastered Version]
A cool breeze passing me over
and I can hear it blow through everything
I belong here

The sun is hanging on the lowest clouds of the horizon
its reflection is cut into chaos by passing cars
Ash drops from a secondhand cigarette in blistered hands
Lovers walk through my curious gaze with out a blink
I catch an eye of judgement above a paging newspaper
a young smile welcomes me into her imaginary world
foot steps, screeching brakes and a shop door bell echos from behind

A window shines the glare into my eyes
I close them shut to see the glowing red
I belong here
I belong here

The sun is hanging on
The sun is hanging on the lowest clouds of the horizon
its reflection is cut into chaos by passing cars
Ash is falling down
Ash drops from a secondhand cigarette in blistered hands
Lovers walk through my curious gaze with out a blink
I catch an eye of judgement
I catch an eye of judgement above a paging newspaper
a young smile welcomes me into her imaginary world
Foot steps resound all around
Foot steps, screeching brakes and a shop door bell echos from behind
