Track Name: In The Night
In The Night

It comes in the night, when they're long gone, and tired of bringing you down. Hold on take flight. You're a strong one. They kept you close to the ground. In the night, In the night, In the night, In the night.

When your ship comes, will you be waiting at the shoreline
Will they come knocking at your window, cause you're hiding from their sight lines. Oh, will you go? Will you go willingly, upon the ship ashore.
Do you know? Do you know? The responsibility, your future will withhold.

It comes in the night, are you long gone, or rising up through the crowd? In the night, In the night, In the night, In the night.
Track Name: No Fun
NO FUN

I could see from afar there's that look in your eyes,
You could light up a room with your charm
We could make you a star let's just go for a ride
They'll be over the moon with these cards

and it's no fun, to become one, and you'll win some, but mostly you lose

Get the place and the time and you'll catch all the breaks
You've got nothing to lose you're only young
Why you looking so blue? Why are you red in the face?
Show your colours too soon and you'l be done.

Tell me something's wrong, Did you know all along, and I'll never return
and I'll never return
Track Name: Wishful Thinking
Sooner or later I will come around, I'm done with wishful thinking
You're a whole new person when the lights go down, a warning light is blinking
I don't care if you've been drinking, you're an anchor and we're sinking

Let's hold off and see what morning brings, cause this night is going to kill me
can we talk about some other things, I've heard all of your stories
all they do is show me

That you're petrified, but so am I, I'm worried though
that if you don't care, about your frame of mind, well then why should I

You told me that I've never loved before, and I don't think I'll love after
You're a drafted soldier going off to war, it was the worst kind of disaster,
I wouldn't put it past her.
Track Name: True Blue
TRUE BLUE

Why are you such a true blue, oh why am I such a bad guy?
I cast my line so deep with you but it always comes up dry
oh it always comes up dry

Forty Days, 1000 Nights, I am lost alone I can't get it right
Whenever I call out to you, you just keep me on the line
You just keep me on the line

and if you see me running, towards the great divide
don't call for someone to save me, just have them answer

If she was true blue, oh if she was true blue

Why are you so hard to love, oh I give and I give I can't get enough
I send a lifeboat out to you but it always comes back fine
oh it always comes back fine
Track Name: North Star
NORTH STAR

Look at the shining true north star, it's never let you down
Oh how I wonder where you are, I've seen you in every town
I'm blinded by your impurities, I think I have dirt in my eyes
All bets on what you could have been, and there's none on what you've done so far
so much for that shining star

you never wanted the attention, though you've come so far since you were young,
I never thought that it would hurt you

Why don't you ever call my name, I never asked you for much
I wonder if I would do the same, but they dressed you up in fance clothes, and now you've got nowhere to go.

You never wanted the attention, though you've come so far since you were young
I never thought it would hurt you, you were worth nothing, just a mention,
til that claw came falling from the sky, we didn't want to dissapoint you.

Look at the star, it's come so far. Look at the star to find where you are.

As sure as the sun speaks to the moon, they will have your glass shattered
just to sort through your cuts
As sure as a gun speaks to a room. they will have that shot fired, you were holding your tounge.

Look at the shining true north star, just for one last time, before you say goodbye,
and you'll be supernova.
Track Name: Bad Guy
BAD GUY

I'm a bad guy, in your eyes,
every full truth is a half lie

It's a lie, that you tell yourself,
you heard it from me believed it from someone else
Don't take me home, save me for show and tell, I'm just show and tell

Sure you trust him, he's a nice guy, you could draw him with a straight line
I could leave you and go stateside, to tell half truths, the whole time

Yeah I'm fine, that's what I tell myself, If you had a choice you'd send me straight to hell
I know you're wrong but I still wish you well, yeah I wish you well.

Why won't you stay with me ,why won't you stay with me x 2 - Whyyyyyyyyy

I'm a bad guy, in your eyes,
every full truth is a half lie,
I'm a bad guy, a bad guy, a bad guy, in your eyes

Yeah I'm fine, that's what I tell myself, If you had a choice you'd send me straight to hell
I know you're wrong but I still wish you well, yeah I wish you well.

I'm a bad guy, in your eyes every full truth is a half lie bad guy, and your a bad guy in your eyes. Your eyes
Track Name: Brother
BROTHER

I've been walking away from you brother cause I know your heart isn't listening
(Yeeeaaaah) are you talking to me? (Yeaaaaah) are you looking out?

When you're losing your mind you discover that you're always shouting or whispering
(Yeaaaaaaah) acting confidently (Yeaaaaaah) are you full of doubts

Cause it's coming down, it's coming down.
(You can try and a you can try and a you can try and a you can try and)
You can try to save, yourself, but you're becoming someone else

I've been cast in the shade from you brother
but your path there is really what's sickening
(yeeaaaah) are you talking through me (Yeaaaaah) are you sitting out

(You can try and a you can try and a you can try and a you can try and)
You can try to save, yourself, but you're becoming someone else
I asked you but you couldn't tell me what it is you do so well.

You can try and save yourselves
Track Name: Underwater
UNDERWATER

Do you think that, you would save me, if you'd seen me underwater
Could you be certain, not a maybe, that you would pull me, out of my slumber

Ever wanting, demonstrating, pure devotion, that never falters
holding steadfast, never slaving, uninteresting, and full of wonder


I would cough and spit and curse you on the shore,
while you resuscitate my body, my mouth breathing in through yours
I'm getting closer I am drifting out of sleep
and you are wondering if I'll know you and remember what runs deep,
But I know you'll see me through, your a true blue,
and I'm certain of it now, I wouldn't give that name to any other.

Songbird, you sing to me like a siren echoes in the deep
angel watch over me, give me guidance for eternity.
