Track Name: No Interruption
Sun dried face with wrinkled eyes and matted hair
Cardboard signs hide desperate looks and broken dreams
Heaven knows that harder times are still to come
Say a prayer and sleep with one eye open

I am far too good for you
To bother me
It's not my fault
Why can't you be born privileged?
Just like me?
So obvious....

The voices in your head
Screaming so loud that you can hardly think
My sympathy dwindling
Until I can't feel anything anymore
My heart breaks for you
To see you like this
Bound to the street

Hunger beckons you to beg another day
I walk right by, tell you a lie, & pretend to care
Heaven knows that harder times still to come
I could make a difference if I wanted to

I am far too good for you
To bother me
It's not my fault
Why can't you be born privileged?
Just like me?
So obvious....
I am far too good for you
To bother me
It's not my fault
Why can't you be born privileged?
Just like me?
Track Name: Astronaut
I don't wanna be the lonely one sitting in the dark
Waiting forever
Hoping that you'll magically appear
But I'm doubtful, so doubtful

I'm floating here
I'm waiting for you

You can tell me all the old cliche phrases
Of futile optimism
But I would give anything to feel
That love again
Just one more time

I'm floating here
I'm waiting for you
Track Name: Dichotomy
I want you to know
I need you to know
What you thought you owned
Has left you alone
Now you come to me
Fearful and besieged
I need you to believe you're the same as me

Your ignorance taunts me
Perception it haunts me
Persuasion is futile
We can't live in denial
Can't avoid the obvious
We have to state the obvious
That we're all stuck here together

You think you know me so well
But this is just a shell
For emptiness beneath
possessions never speak
Suffering is blind
Money cannot buy
All that we desire
And we'll leave behind

Your ignorance taunts me
Perception it haunts me
Persuasion is futile
We can't live in denial
Can't avoid the obvious
We have to state the obvious
That we're all stuck here together

The haves and the have-nots approach
At each others throats
Differences aside,
United or we'll die...

Your ignorance taunts me
Perception it haunts me
Persuasion is futile
We can't live in denial
Can't avoid the obvious
We have to state the obvious
That we're all stuck here together
Track Name: Rising Sun
[instrumental]
Track Name: Scars From A Ghost
Wise beyond your years
You always knew just what to say
Eleoquent and kind
Carried my cross without a pause
My debt to you
Is something I can't repay

No matter where you go
Ill be right by your side
If I fail, If I fall you'll always love me despite
No matter where you go
Ill be right by your side
If I fail, If I fall you'll always love me despite

Please don't walk away
From here
'Cause I can't bear to see you go
But if you stay we both know
your life won't be where it should be

You left me here before
Now you're leaving me again
This time isn't that bad
With waves of comforting sadness

When i crawled you were there
To help me everyday
When i walked you were there
For every step of the way

Please don't walk away
From here
'Cause I can't bear to see you go
But if you stay we both know
your life won't be where it should be

I know i should not weep
For the things i cannot change
And the cuts have healed
But the scars won't fade

Though it hurts, I must be strong
A divine plan is at work
Darker days have gone by
You told me time and again
But you won't fade
you won't fade
you won't fade from memory

And I scream at the top of my lungs...for you!
Track Name: Sunshine
Sing the psalms of the brokenhearted
Paradise is a long, long, long, long road to appreciate
And I hope that it's worth it
I hope that it's worth it

You deserve much better than you've been given
I hope they understand what you've been through

Drink one more and try to sleep
Just can't stand to watch him make you fall to pieces
Broke down in a hotel room
Can't put you back together

You deserve much better than you've been given
I hope they understand what you've been through

You deserve....
I hope....
