Track Name: The Runner
I am on a run
as far as my legs can carry on
the only path I see is right in front of me and
before you know I'm gone

the road is made of mud and sand
my feet are always sinking in
with every step I learn to stand
with every fall I learn to land

I know I'm on a run
but not to flee, oh no, but to become
the one I always said that I would want to be
less prejudice more dignity
I know I'm on a run

even out at sea
the storms and the waves could not stop me
I know I look depleted
but looks can be decieving
when most see what they want

I give all I have
I promise myself
whatever I want's what I can get
get lucky tonight or work all my life
only the strong ones will survive

I know I'm on a run
but not to flee, oh no, but to become
the one I always said that I would want to be
less prejudice more dignity
I know I'm on a run

the road is made of mud and sand
my feet are always sinking in
with every step I learn to stand
with every fall I learn to land
Track Name: Differences
We could always just go back again
Whatever way we play it it's in our hands
And if you wanna know the difference
Between us, ok now listen then

I'm a lazy guy I keep it slow
I take my time, I walk wherever I go
You wanna run I will not stop you though
We all have our own ways to go

You're more competitive you go for gold
Say "if you're not first you're last" oh baby so bold
Why can't we all win and instead of gold
We get ice cream in a chocolate bowl

Oh do we dare?
Why should I care?
Who knows what's wrong or right
Maybe the right will do us wrong
and the wrong could be just right for us

let the wind guide the direction
let it blow away those little distractions
we can do anything we want to do
who said we can't live a life
where happiness is defined
by sharing all my love with you

I'm not a wonder of words
I just want to let you know
you could have it a lot easier
if you learned to let go

Oh do we dare?
Why do I care?
Who knows what's wrong or right
Maybe the right will do us wrong
and the wrong could be just right for us
Track Name: Like A Dog
trapped and wrapped
in the web that you weaved
every breath takes its toll on me
there's nothing left inside of me

your hands 'round my neck
every inch of me
numbs, drops dead before you finally release
there's nothing left inside of me

I get hungry for devotion
and my rations will deplete
you don't have the slightest notion
of what i'd give for just a piece

I'm getting nervous just from thinking of you
my voice starts trembling when you enter the room
I just don't know how to recover from you
it is bad, not getting better
so I'm begging you baby make me leave

stop me from giving in oh
take my eyes off you
I've got a home of my own
do I look homeless to you
who are you really trying to be

you turn your back on me oh
there's so much back to see
should turn my back on you too
I know I should but

I get hungry for devotion
and my rations will deplete
you don't have the slightest notion
of what i'd give for just a piece

I'm getting nervous just from thinking of you
my voice starts trembling when you enter the room
I just don't know how to recover from you
it is bad, not getting better
but I'm still on a leash
someone pull me, somone choke me,
someone drag me back home
home, home, home

trapped and wrapped
in the web that you weaved
every breath takes its toll on me
Track Name: Falling Asleep
Sun leaves a pattern on your skin
The saltwater has dried, the fan was cooling it
My skin is pale and wearing thin
I throw some wood in the fire to feel my feet again
You just woke up, can barely stand
I stayed up late, hands hold my head
You hang up,and dig your toes into plain white sand
I take a dive into my bed again

Nobody's with me when I'm falling
I'm falling asleep in cold dark
The sun shines when I close my eyes
But I'm waking in freezing white

What's going on, how have you been
The last time you replied seems so long ago
I saw the pictures of you and him
Just a friend I guess, or is there more to know?

Where are you now, where do you sleep?
You said I worry too much there's lots more to life
Than holding on to computer screens
Or to the ones that we used to love

How did we loose
ourselves so easily?
When did we choose
to say "I" instead of "we"?
Whatever it was
it will eventually
make you forget me.

Nobody's with me when I'm falling
I'm falling asleep in cold dark
The sun shines when I close my eyes
But I'm waking in freezing white
