Damned © 2003

You were perfect
In every way
Undeniably
So many times I heard our friends say
That you and I were the way
That they wanted to be

But now that I have seen you
For what you are truly
With my perceptions redefined
Now what does perfect mean?

You were perfect
But that's all bullshit now
And now every time
That I somehow find
Perfection once again
How can I know that it's true
Cuz I thought the same of you

But now that I have seen you
For what you are truly
With my perceptions redefined
Now what does perfect mean?

I'm damned
You damned me
I'm damned
God damn you

[Instrumental Bridge]

You were perfect... but that's all bullshit now
But now that I have seen you
For what you are truly
With my perceptions redefined
Now what does perfect mean?

I'm damned
You damned me
I'm damned
God damn you...

Seven © 2003

Seven years I held my breath
Seven times I've failed... I failed my best
At seventeen I felt so right
But now I'm second guessing my whole life

A trilogy of a decade
Is all of us that you would save
There's nothing left now and that's ok
But the future's fused with yesterday

Seven secrets that you hold
Are the seven million little lies you told
At twenty-seven you'd think I'd know
It took me over but now I let it go

A trilogy of a decade
Is all of us that you would save
There's nothing left now and that's ok
But the future's fused with yesterday

I'll never know what haunts you
I'll never know what was true
But I finally feel like it's over

I'll never know the pain's gone
Until I move on
I'll never know unless I try cuz it's been so long

This puzzle box's lock is open
As I live it all again

A trilogy of a decade
Is all of us that you would save
There's nothing left now and that's ok
But the future's fused with yesterday

I'll never know what haunts you
I'll never know what was true
But I finally feel like it's over

I'll never know the pain's gone
Until I move on
I'll never know unless I try cuz it's been so long

I'll never know what haunts you
I'll never know what was true
But I finally feel like it's over

I'll never know the pain's gone
Until I move on
I'll never know unless I try cuz it's been so long

Blood © 2003

It can't be described as jealousy
It comes from deeper still
Call it what you will
But as you follow me

You are of my blood
And that's everything
It's everything I give
For the life you live
Cuz everything I had not
Is all that you got

And I'd run through the sun
To become
what you, my brother, you have made
I'd sacrifice
All my life
For you, my brother, everyday

We never had much time
We've always been miles apart
But as I see you come into your prime
Our worlds collide
I'm filled with nothing but pride

And I'd run through the sun
To become
what you, my brother, you have made
I'd sacrifice
All my life
For you, my brother, in every way

[Instrumental Bridge]

You are of my blood

All my life
For you, my brother, everyday

And I'd run through the sun

I'd sacrifice
All my life
For you, my brother, in every way

Prayer © 2002

I scream at God as if he's there
(Not there)
Watching over us in our despair
(Don't care)

As if to scare me, to find me, define me
I know what you want and it's not in me
To feel me, to want me, then shun me
I know, I know, I know but...

Why must, must you
Be the one that I
Confide into
And say a prayer for you

You only want what you can't get
(What's not mine)
It starts to feel just like regret
(As you'll find)

And that's what scares me, what blinds me, defines me
I know what you want and it's not in me
To feel me, to want me, then shun me
I know, I know, I know but...

Why must, must you
Be the one that I
Confide into
And say a prayer for you

Solo

As if to scare me, to find me, define me
I know what you want and it's not in me
To feel me, to want me, then shun me
I know, I know, I know but...

Why must, must you
Be the one that I
Confide into
And say a prayer for you

Say a prayer for you...

Slave © 2003

And my hands are bound
My knees on the ground
Because I am your slave
Tied to you in every way

And even though you
Just seem to deny
Me and you
I just can't say good-bye

You are the one that got away
You are the one that could not stay (and I don't blame you)
You are my inspiration
You are the one...

I've been behind these walls
As long as I can recall
Because I am your slave
Tied to you until I end my days

And even though you
Just seem to deny
Me and you
I just can't say good-bye

You are the one that got away
You are the one that could not stay (and I don't blame you)
You are my inspiration
You are the one...

[Instrumental Bridge]

And even though you
Just seem to deny
Me and you
I just can't say good-bye

You are the one that got away
You are the one that could not stay (and I don't blame you)
You are my inspiration
You are the one...

December © 2003

I'll be your one and only
But just don't try to own me
Cuz that's the best that I can do

Cuz I was born December
So you must remember
That I will always be...

The way I am
You can't pretend
That you can change me how
You want me now
And To rise above
These open wounds
And drift towards you
Until I bore you

And then just walk away
(Walk away)
Yeah, just walk away - you're through

I can be your passion
But can you promise lasting forever
Or is this the best that you can do

Cuz I was born the fire
I'll give all you desire
But I will always be...

The way I am
You can't pretend
That you can change me how
You want me now
And To rise above
These open wounds
And drift towards you
Until I bore you

And then just walk away
(Walk away)
Walk away too
(Walk away)
Yeah, just walk away
(Walk away)
Yeah, just walk away - you're through

Cuz I was born December...

[GUITAR SOLO]

The way I am

Fallen © 2001

Well, I'm thinking back on memories
Of a better time
When you were mine

As you're lying down with the man who flies
Into your heart
As he tears us apart

I never thought I would be with you again
I never thought I could be with you because of him

And now I'm falling
I'm falling
I'm falling for you baby all again

And now here you are back in my arms
After everything
Still I'm craving

For you in my life gives me the strength
To carry on
But once again you're gone

I never thought you could leave me again
I never thought you would leave me because of him

And now I'm fallen
I'm fallen
I've fallen for your lies once again
And now I'm fallen
I'm fallen
I've fallen for your lies once again

Well, I'm thinking back on the memories
Of a better time
When you were mine

I never thought you could leave me again
I never thought you would leave me because of him
I never thought you could leave me again
I never thought you would leave me because of him

And now I'm fallen
I'm fallen
I've fallen for your lies once again
And now I'm fallen
I'm fallen
I've fallen for your lies once again

With you in my life, gives me the strength
To carry on
But once again you're gone

Wilt © 2004

Roses are red
Unless they're dead
And left astray
As I wilt away....

The seasons change
As all things do
Apparently
So did you
So I crawl
Back into the earth
Left astray
As I wilt away...

I dig my way back to
My mother's womb
I bathe myself in truth
Cuz you filled my world with lies
I wash away
These muddied sins of mine
But aren't you a little behind...

It all just seems
So out of place
With all this time
I've had to face
So I crawl
Back into the earth
Left astray
As I wilt away...

And time will only tell
As I die in this living hell
Don't chase me down my hole
Where even angels have lost my soul

[Guitar Solo]

And time will only tell
As I die in this living hell
Don't chase me down my hole
Where even angels have lost my soul

And time will only tell
As I die in this living hell
Don't chase me down my hole
Where even angels have lost my soul

Roses are red
Unless they're dead...

Crave © 2003

It's what I crave
But you'll say
It's all I ever want
And my lustful
Insatiable
Need to have you again and...

Again I run my fingers down your skin so soft
To satisfy my sin
I crave you again

I touch you
And feel you
Caress you
Undress you
So gently
You free me
Completely
As you pull me in

Again I run my fingers down your skin so soft
To satisfy my sin
I crave you again

You don't satisfy
The way I've got it
The way I need it

You can't gratify
The way I've got it
The way I need it

You won't satisfy
The way I've got it
But still I need it

So I touch you
And feel you
Caress you
Undress you
So gently
You free me
Completely
As you pull me in

Again I run my fingers down your skin so soft
To satisfy my sin
I crave you again

Again I run my fingers down your skin so soft
To satisfy my sin
I crave you again

Zen © 2003

The hate builds up inside of me
And now that I can feel it burning through my veins
It's starting to take over me
And I let go of my control and only hate remains

So I close my eyes
(I feel like I'm falling)
And withdraw inside
(I'm reaching for something inside)

Breath in
Breath out
Cleanse yourself of your sin

See in
See out
Center yourself within

The hate builds up inside of me
And now that I can feel it burning through my veins
It's starting to take over me
And I let go of my control and only hate remains

So I close my eyes
(I feel like I'm falling)
And withdraw inside
(I'm reaching for something inside)

Breathe in
Breathe out
Cleanse yourself of your sin

Free in
Free out
Center yourself within

[Instrumental Bridge]

Breath in
Breath out
Cleanse yourself of your sin

See in
See out
Center yourself within

Breathe in
Breate out
Cleanse yourself of your sin

Free in
Free out
Center yourself within

Breath in
Breath out
Cleanse yourself of your sin

See in
See out
Center yourself within

Jade © 2003

I found you
Somewhere beneath the stars
You drifted in with the season's change

I found you
And the essence of what you are
But now I'm standing here beneath the rain

And now that I feel like the jade is broken
The time has passed and you no longer care
Yeah, now that my walls have crumbled
I turn to find that you're no longer there

I found you
And like the winds above the seas
You drifted in with the season's change

I found you
But with all the strength inside of me
Still I'm standing here beneath the rain

And now that I feel like the jade is broken
The time has passed and you no longer care
Yeah, now that my walls have crumbled
I turn to find that you're no longer there

Now that I found you Jade
How can you turn and walk away
Now that I found you Jade
How can you turn and walk away

[Instrumental Bridge]

And now that I feel like the jade is broken
The time has passed and you no longer care
Yeah, now that my walls have crumbled
I turn to find that you're no longer there

Now that I found you Jade
How can you turn and walk away
Now that I found you Jade
How can you turn and walk away

Numb © 2005

Somehow, I know just what would cure me
But as they say, the devil’s in the details
So I seem to gravitate to what numbs me
And despair overwhelmingly prevails

And this needle through my skull
Threaded me to become
What it is I am... so numb

Somehow, I know just what could purge me
Of all these sins that tear me to the core
Yet I seem to levitate to what kills me
And then despair just nails my lifeless body to the floor

And this needle through my skull
Threaded me to become
What it is I am... so numb

[GUITAR SOLO]

I realize that it’s me
That's sewing the seeds of my own destiny

But this needle through my skull
Threaded me to become
What it is I am... What is I am…

And this needle through my skull
Threaded me to become
What it is I am... so numb

So numb…
