I Get Blown Away
Emergency
Emergency
You have a crisis in your head
And everything is upside down
Ripped up memories of the life you have lead
You try to scream but make no sound
If you need me
You know where I can be found
Just close your eyes and dream
When your world falls apart
And you have no one there to save you
When you are in a sea of people
But you're all alone
Just try to hold on to
What's inside of you
When your world falls apart
You can still dream
Circumstances beyond your control
They try to take your soul from you
It is so hard to live in the warmth of the cold
You are often lonely and confused
It's you and I against their control
Don't let them know how you feel
They make you think you can be bought and sold
Just brave it all and you will be healed
Emergency your being torn into two
Everyone seems to have a say
About you the things you feel, about the things you do
You try so hard but you can't push them all away
If you need me you know where I can be found
Just close your eyes and dream...
Been So Long
If you only knew how much you mean to me
Your strong will and your loyalty
I've grown so much with you, I'm glad I've had the chance
To see you grow with me, I know that we can last
Look at the years and we're still here
We've gone through the doubts, we've gone through the fear
And if you haven't guessed it, here's your song...
It's been so long
I'm sorry for the things that were never said
But I wasn't strong enough to try to bend
I took a different road now look at where that lead
You had clarity you wouldn't let it end
The changes fly by us like colored blurs
But we stay constant in a world that tries to hurt
And I know that there is one thing I have tried to learn
You can't be afraid of being burned...




Subtle Shade Of Grey
I fell hard, I fell deep
Careening toward a painful end
in a nightmare riddled sleep
So long, Goodbye
I'm sorry that I'm done, but you know I had to run
Time to lay down and cry
Too much, too fast
My weakness is inside and it's more than I can hide
It's time to take off this mask
And I'm fading away
Into a subtle shade of grey
Like a whisper in the wind
And I don't have a doubt
That you will never figure out
What you had in your hands
Squeeze tight, let go!
I'm going to a place
That I can show my face
And not feel like a joke
Same life, new place!
I've been holding out too long
It will be better when I'm gone
And I'm fading...






Wrongs To Rights
The day you left was the day I was born
Confused and without a clue
Your double talk, your tortured eyes
Could never bring me back to you
Cause YOU!
Never knew what you had lost
But I!
Knew I was better and I could never be bought
The more you talk the more it shows
That you don't really know
All the resentment deep inside
It's too late to change all your wrongs to rights
You know the years have played a trick on you
Your memories of me are dead and gone
You're feeble minded
With eyes that kill
There is a hole inside you that you will never fill
But I!
Promise to never be like you
DEEP INSIDE!
I'll keep you locked in a dark room filled with the truth
You said that things will be o.k.
That you would take care of me
I might have been young
But I wasn't dumb
Did you think I couldn't see?
There had been those times when I let you in
But you couldn't let yourself out
I tried to talk, I tried to listen
But you wouldn't come about
Cause YOU!
Demand total attention for yourself
But I!
Just wanted you to hear you say "I'm Sorry"
Pressure
I'm gonna build four walls
Then I'll hide inside
Those walls will be built with care
And they'll be a hundred miles high
And those walls will NEVER fall
Like my hopes so often do
I'll just crouch in one of the corners
And try to find a way to get through this...
PRESSURE, WEIGHT, ANGER,
I feel all this with you
DEPRESSION, FEAR, LONLINESS
I feel pushed aside I don't know what to do
Well I think I'm pretty fair
About being unfair to me
Give credit to the other guy
And be pushed into obscurity
But I still have my walls
Yeah, I have a perfect view
Of a man who is melting with fear
And slowly becoming unglued
Every brick that I place
Is a guard against attack
I keep waiting for the cold, sharp pain
Of a knife being thrust in my back
Someday I'll give it up
And accept what I've been dealt
I'll just crouch in one of my corners
And try to find a way to get through this
PRESSURE
Shattered Glass
When I cry
I cry alone
The tears are dry
The days are gone
My true love
Shattered Glass
I should have known
It could never last
People and places so far away
So much love, so much hate
There has got to be a way to break right through
Find some feeling, and get the truth
The sky is high
It extends for me
I just sigh
It could never be
Now your gone
Shattered Glass
I think I grew
Up to fast
I wish I knew
How to smile
But I find it hard
When I'm on trial
They will be judgemental
To their very ends
That group excludes
But I got my friends
SHATTERED...
Figures
I see a figure stand
In the setting sun so all alone
And as we slowly pan
We see a world which bustles all around
Is that figure me?
Or is he a projection
Of exactly what I need?
And will I slowly die in a sea of people
That are nothing like me
I've got to stand and fight
For what I think is wrong and what is right
And don't you think I know
How really low
Low can go?
Now the tide has come
The figure embraces it
With open arms
The dirty water runs
The figure is smart
But the figure is not strong
And if he falls down
Would you catch him before
He hits the ground?
Ruthlessness abounds
He squints in his total disgust
And do you think its right
If a fire a burns around a
Human sacrafice?
I've got to stand and fight
For what I think is wrong and what is right
So the curtain falls
There is nothing left
Except for empty, echoing halls
His lonliness consumes
But it is better then his hatred
That he has felt
And he will just walk away
With a memory that is all his own
Is that figure somehow me?
Always searching for something else?
(I Get) Blown Away
Don't hold my past against me
Please let it all slip away
Like a misused chance, a one night romance
I'm much different now than yesterday
And don't you know I'm really sorry?
And don't you know I really care?
I'm just afraid...
I'll get blown away...
I'm feeling so much different now
Although your attitude has left me very cold
Like a mother without a son, a bullett without a gun
I feel the seperation that has taken hold
And don't you know I'm really sorry?
And don't you know I really care?
I'm just afraid...
I'll get blown away...
I can't help to wonder
When everything started to fall apart
Like love without a heart, a finish without a start
We just never had a chance
And don't you know I'm really sorry?
And don't you know I really care?
I'm just afraid...
I'll get blown away...
There is a place, where I can go
Where nothing changes, and nothing grows
Inside my head, my memories, the two of us,
Apart and free
And don't you know I really love you?
And don't you know I really care?
I'm just afraid...
I'll get blow AWAY
