Should I play my hand or should I take it slow? I've probably told you more than you should know I tried my best to show that I was wise I'd always guessed that you would see through my disguise 'Cause in my mind I would try to review All of the times I was talking to you A search for something to show you would give it a try I just had to know what it would lead to I always kept an eye out for a kind You could call them nothing but truly good finds Was it helpful that I had been known? Or was it something I should have left well alone 'Cause at the time I never knew And all the while I thought it was you I was not lying when I said we'd give it a try I just had to know what it would lead to Don't mistake the loud for the wise We had a chance to open our eyes These expectations we uphold It's no wonder we feel so old A vision of stories I had yet to write Stood like a beacon in the dark of night And gone were the things that I had felt before With silent surrender I could finally end the war 'Cause deep inside something grew And I had found what I needed to do I was not joking when I said I'd give it a try Because you know I like to see things through

It seems to me I'd one day find There's nothing out there, but my mind Just places that I could not be With nothing more for me to see All of the faces I hid behind Buried so they could not find I'm making it up as I go along The only thing that stops me from Feeling wrong Where I'm told that I belong Beneath the surface I fell into Landing so hard, I broke right through Imagine the day that we do entwine Feeling the chills up from my spine Working it out as I go along Fear is the thing that stops you from Being strong Until you find a place Where you belong Being strong Until you find a place Where you belong

I never believed there’s a choice in front of me Attaching to every single outcome I could dream Pleading ignorance while avoiding what I feel I fell into the spinning wheel Now I’ve begun A Worldly Someone I broke out of hell, there were ghosts around me Looking beyond the animals and the man I could be There’s a heavenly feel to the Gods above me I’ve been depending on all of them to some degree I look to the moon, I am sensing the appeal So I may leap from the wheel When I’ve become No longer someone

To Be Loved 04:23
I couldn't foresee what they had in mind When I was taught people are kind Yet how could one be so inclined Innocence undermined I am tired of the line Down the road it will be fine When in the matters of the heart I was broken from the start This is the hardest part of all I will not answer when you call 'Cause I've been deceived, I've been let down and left alone With this disease I'm unable to be loved I see it for it's real size and grant myself the hope to rise The safest spaces pulled apart I am returning to the start So I will say yes if I must And treat this as a chance to test my trust 'Cause I've been deceived, I've been let down and left alone With this disease I'm unable to be loved To be Loved

The Gallery 05:29
Taking a view that canvass is where we begin Given a chance to paint the condition we're in With colour being all that we can't control Learning to use the tools could be our role People will say that they aren't the gifted type A good place to start is a single swipe Don't ever feel the need to copy a style You will learn and develop your own in a little while We need you (to try your best to find) We need you (that place in your mind) We need you (before you're left behind) We need you (while you still have the will and the fight) We are painting a picture Of all we tried to be A colourful impression Of all that we see In our mind, in our time Our attempts to be free Just remember we need you To form The Gallery So give it some time and you'll stand back in awe When you have suddenly become all that you saw And with a sense of wonder that's surrounding you now The form it takes is limited by what you allow We thank you (and the rest of your kind) We thank you (for showing us your mind) We thank you (the blind will lead the blind) We thank you (without a gift for seeing the light) You were painting a picture Of all you tried to be With an honest impression It's always been the key To your mind, to your time Your attempts to be free and remember we need you To form The Gallery.

Combine 03:53
Are you alone with me, Or did you wait in line? Have you got news for me Of any kind? I fear what I would see If I looked behind There's something haunting me Controlling my mind Controlling my mind We combine If once I was free Then was pulled into line From the fate in front of me I may well have resigned But it's nothing new to be Lost and undefined Something's been haunting me Since the beginning of time Beginning of time We combine

Fantasy 03:44
Something's being sold as true That you were thrown deep into I did not foresee what they would make me do The questions that they knew the answer to I feel it wake me from my dreams Repeating voices circle me I am living in a fantasy Where no one else seems to be When I lack the strength to disagree To their faces I would stare Though at times I was not there If you repeat, it's not that I don't care There's only so much attention I can share All the pieces, I can see But can't control what's said of me Am I living out their fantasy? In a place I will never be I just lack the will to disagree

Glorify 05:33
You were burdened by circumstance Before you realised Deep inside the emptiness lay A blessing in the disguise Do you feel the energy tonight? Will you find the words to say it right? It's what you believe That will make you try Not what you achieve But how you apply For all you concede Look at what it provides A short reprieve Is something to glorify! There is still the time for us to Dive into your mind Paying close attention there's A meaning we can find Don't let this be the end of you tonight Try to find the word's to make it right It's what you believe That will make you try Not what you achieve But how you apply For all you concede Look at what it provides A short reprieve Is something to glorify!
