Track Name: Chill Out
Chill out,
You can hardly breathe.
Your lungs are filled with
A cold breeze.

Don't you know,
This situation's a bold one.
Take it slow,
Indecision will claim one.

Get out,
While you still have time.
You're locked inside a mind
That won't let you hide.

Don't you know,
This situation's a bold one.
Take it slow,
You've gotta know when to fold son.

Or I will make you.

Blind side, blind side,
Half a face with nothing to hide
Blind side, blind side,
Half a face with nothing to hide.

Come out, come out, come out,
From your hiding place.

Your head's to blame,
for the mouse and cat game.
A rodent on the run,
From the tail of the son-of-a-gun.

Stop the madness now,
Move out the storm has come.

Or I will make you.

Blind side, blind side,
Half a face with nothing to hide
Blind side, blind side,
Half a face with nothing to hide.

Blind side, blind side,
Half a face with nothing to hide
Blind side, blind side,
Half a face with nothing to hide.

Come out, come out, come out,
From your hiding place.
Track Name: Wait
I'll wait for you.
Spending broken days
In shades of blue.
'Til I find a face
Amongst the greys
that calls out my name.
Lost in phase
From how the beauty radiates
Its waves through me.

Fingertips are running on my knee,
And now I'm ready to go.
Fingertips are crawling over me,
And now I'm ready to go.

But I'll wait for you.
Spending all my time to see it through,
Oh yeah, I'll wait for you.

I'll wait for you.
Searching lonely days
Without a clue.
'Til I find a streak
Across the bleak,
And I froze.
Icy chills along the spine,
Just knowing I will be fine.

Fingertips are running on my knee,
And now I'm ready to go.
Fingertips are crawling over me,
And now I'm ready to go.

But I'll wait for you.
Wasting all my time to see it through,
Oh yeah, I'll wait for you.

I'll wait for you,
Oh, I'll wait for you.
Track Name: Slow Down
Poison my ivy,
Killing all my leaves.
Hold me so tightly,
Take a bite of me.

Bring me to my knees,
Crippling my feet.
Show me you're lovely,
Then take it right from me.

Can we just slow down?
Can I just slow down?

Heavyweight soldier,
Lightly lay your head on my shoulder.
Heart's a rock solid boulder,
That's what I told her.

But my phrase was met with teeth,
Mashed into pieces.
The truth will surface quick,
And slowly sink deep.

Can we just slow down?
Can you just slow down?

Can we just slow down?
Can we just slow down?
So much better when we take our time.
Track Name: End Daze
I don't see how
You will survive this time.
You'll need some bold miracle,
All the planets have to re-align.

How many days will I fight you?
How many days 'til I find you on the other side?

Eye to eye don't
Pretend to have it figured out.
So why not try?
What's the harm of hoping hell won't just come our way?

It's void of explanation.
Separate, separate asphyxiation.

How many days will I fight you?
How many days 'til I find you on the other side?

Softly, slowly release me
I'm done.

It doesn't matter how hard you try,
You're still a product of your own design.
You're still looking for ones to despise,
In restless disguise.
It doesn't matter how hard you cry,
There's no pity for those who lie.
Tangled up in your wicked insides,
In your denial.

How many days will I fight you?
How many days 'til I find you?

How many days 'til I break through?
