Track Name: Permanent Man
Permanent Man

I'm a permanent man
In a transient world
And I have to learn to let go

There's no guarantee
And time is cheap
We can't put our lives on hold

We could live in a moment
We could touch and be over it
We could forget ourselves in a day

But I want to remember
The time we spend together
How we forgive the things that we say

I'm a permanent man
In a transient world
And I have to learn to let go

There's no guarantee
And time is cheap
We can't put our lives on hold

I could start again
I could smile and pretend
That I'm perfectly fine right here

But no drugs and no wine
Will ever define
They just make a man disappear

I'm a permanent man
In a transient world
And I have to learn to let go

There's no guarantee
And time is cheap
We can't put our lives on hold

A woman or two
Some drugs and some booze
And a lie that we'll all atone

It will all go away
And there's nothing to take
You're left cold, empty, alone

Track Name: Atlas
Atlas

What would you think of me
If I said I was wrong?
I can't be everything
In your world after all

I feel when you're leaning on me now
When you try to hold me down
That I can't pull myself up

Does it matter if I leave?
Would you find someone else
To be your everything?
The only one that matters

I feel when you're leaning on me now
When you try to hold me down
That I can't pull myself up
That I can't hold you up

You need to find your own way
You need to find another way without me

I feel when you're leaning on me now
When you try to hold me down
That I can't hold you up

Please tell me when you want to let me go
That's when I will really know
That you want me here

Track Name: Not In Love
Not In Love

If she just opened up
I would change my mind
But she holds her mask on tight
So why should I even try?

Because I'm far above
And it seems
Like she's far below
And it's all
It's all around
But I'm not
No I'm not in love

And she teases me
And she tells me lies
That sound too good for me so I leave
I say goodbye

Because I'm far above
And it seems
Like she's far below
And it's all
It's all around
But I'm not
No I'm not in love

But it seems to me
She's far away
I can't hold her now
I cannot say
If I want her here
Because she's all around me
And I'm stopping this vicious dance

Because I'm far above
And it seems
Like she's far below
And it's all
All around me
But I'm not
No I'm not in love

-2/2011
Track Name: You're All Alone
You're All Alone

Even if we try to work it out
There's nothing left to talk about
Don't you try to call me on the phone
Say goodbye 'cuz I'm

Leaving home
On my own
Don't follow me 'cuz you're all alone

Even if we try every night
Try our best to be polite
We're sinking like a heavy stone,
Say goodbye, 'cuz I'm

Leaving home
On my own
Don't follow me 'cuz you're all alone

I'm leaving home
Time to go
Don't follow me 'cuz you're all alone

Track Name: Only Me
Only Me

No matter where you go at night I will be
Anywhere you run I will be chasing after you, just us two
Take me along, I hope I'm enough
Please don't leave me here alone I'm nothing without you

I know what's best for you
You can't be safe without me too
We all need company
So why not only me?

No matter where you go at night I will be
Anywhere you run I will be chasing after you, just us two
Take me along, I hope I'm enough
Please don't leave me here alone I'm nothing without you

We don't need anyone else
We can do this by ourselves
Leave our family behind
Trust me, they won't mind

No matter where you go at night I will be
Anywhere you run I will be chasing after you, just us two
Take me along, I hope I'm enough
Please don't leave me here alone I'm nothing without you

I can see us standing there
Arms embraced a frozen pair

-4/2010
Track Name: Sleepwalker
Sleepwalker

Peace is cheap
When you can sleep
You have no bounds
You find what you haven't found

They bought all my days
And got my nights for free
They want to take me over
I only want to dream

When you're awake
You have to fake
All the smiles
All the hands you shake

They bought all my days
And got my nights for free
They want to take me over
I only want to dream

Let me fly, let me think,
And I can do anything

They bought all my days
And got my nights for free
They want to take me over
I only want to dream

-6/2010
Track Name: Trouble
Trouble

Everybody wants to get in trouble
Everybody wants to get into a fight
Just another high to keep you going
Just another way to keep passing time

All that I want
Is in this room

Everybody wants to be above the law
Everybody wants to live like a star
Just another way to hide the problem
Just another way to kick-start your heart

All that I want
Is here with you

-7/2010
Track Name: Burnt
Burnt

In the springtime we show our skin
I see us dancing with no sin
In the summertime we're all burnt
In the sun we are scathed, we all hurt

So take me home where I can be myself
So take me home where I can love nobody else

In autumn time we're falling down
Will I help you up or will you hit the ground?
In wintertime all is cold
We're turning gray all alone

So take me home where I can be myself
So take me home where I can love nobody else

So take me home where I can be myself
So take me home where I can love nobody else
So take me home where I can love myself
So take me home where I can need nobody else

-4/2010
Track Name: Further
Further

When we danced around
Tripped and stumbled down
And complicated everything that need not be
I was nearly spent
Your sea of rules we bent
I kissed the ground when we landed safely

The further that we run
The more that we become
The rhythm that we find
Is turning into signs
Of what's to come

The place I'm taking you
Is down the avenue
And I'm thinking you'll love this kind of crowd
'Cause I know your ways
Since we stopped the games
And we shouted the truth out loud

The further that we run
The more that we become
The rhythm that we find
Is turning into signs
Of what's to come

-1/2011
Track Name: All The Same
All The Same

You act tall yet beg and crawl
You're on your knees and still you fall
When she walks into the room

It's like she's cast in solid gold
Poured into a perfect mold
And you're a pawn for her to move

But we're all the same
Everyone

She leads you on and on you go
You change yourself and who you know
To fit your vision of her dream

But it's all inside your head
The tender words she never said
And you're convinced that you have seen

But we're all the same
Everyone

Wake up for yourself

-3/2011
Track Name: Counterpart
Counterpart

I should not complain
I've been doing well
Things are just fine

But I'm wanting more
Than I can have
Here by myself

I don't want to grow old
With no one to hold
Someone to warm the cold feeling
That I'm only half whole

Lately I've been feeling numb
Disappearing slow
Into shadow

But this half empty bed
Just won't be warm enough
To keep from freezing

I don't want to grow old
With no one to hold
Someone to warm the cold feeling
That I'm only half whole

I'm fine alone
Just keeping step
In my own parade
But these vacant rooms
In this silent house
Just never change
And my counterpart
Can pump the blood
Back through my veins

I don't want to grow old
With no one to hold
Someone to warm the cold feeling
That I'm only half whole
