Track Name: Paradoxical
Go!

Back in time, a trip takes place
Surreal surroundings
One last change to change what happened before

Caught by memory,
Days have passed
Years have gone by the feelings still the same

Seize the moment
I made it this far
Frozen in time as I see your face

I'll turn back time, to be by your side
I'll cross these lines, to save the day
You shouldn't have to walk, this world alone
I'll fight your battles, and bring you home

Stop!

Back in time, a moment's delay
Slivers of doubt
Who gave us the right to change what's done

Was it man or god,
Who really decides,
Why some live and others are taken away

Face the choices
That took us this far
Make things right this one last time

I'll turn back time, to be by your side
I'll cross these lines, to save the day
You shouldn't have to walk, this world alone
I'll fight your battles, and bring you home

Go!

I'll stop time, won't let you go
Cross these lines and save the day
No you shouldn't have to, walk this world alone
I'll stop time, won't let you go
I'll stop time, won't let you go
Cross these lines and save the day
No you shouldn't have to, walk this world alone
I'll stop time, won't let you go
Track Name: Time Stalker
I tried to be polite as you continued your reasoning
But it was all for naught, words all worlds away
Lost in delusions of grandeur, A single limping sensation
That still grasps to the echo of soemthing abandoned

Understand that it wasn't intentional
The stars just didn't align themselves the way you wanted
Not the way you saw them anyway
It's time to let go, and move forward before you consume yourself with what isn't yours to take

Chorus:
Her eyes, follow me here
(Her eyes, bleed mine)
See through, the night and the day
(She stalks my mind)
Her eyes, constantly stare
(This time I leave behind
Scream out, not fade away
(I'm not insane) (I can't kill time)

(But I like watching you)

Your defense is like kevlar with words as my bullets
But there's a sense of immunity to the truth that I'm firing at you
Now others start to get hit by the shrapnel you're detonating
Innocent friends who have no idea of the depth of your obsession

(But I like)
I didn't want you to be so bitter but that's not something I can solve
You need to assess the situation and the direction your facing
(watching you)
I never asked to be magnetic north on your compass, but you put me there anyway
This bridge isn't burning, but you're putting the matches in my hands to await the inferno

Chorus x 2
Track Name: Mementos
I'm going nowhere
Although it seems the same
These times are changin'
Progress just can't be tamed

We hold on to the moments
Remind you where we've been

We hold on to the moments
To see what we might just be
Track Name: The Stranger
Oblivious to the change you lost
It all escaped your view
You're hideous inside
It's time you forgot yourself

Take aim (We can drive all night)
Shoot it down
And blame (Birth our secret lives)
It's all you do
All cos you f***ed someone new

Take aim (We can drive all night)
Take aim (Birth our secret lives)
Aim, aim

We can drive all night
Birth our secret Lies

When the stranger calls
You know you should lock your doors

Hate is what we’ve become
Track Name: The Painted Sky
Ignore the scattered thoughts that leave
A mark on those who dare to breathe
You shouldn't let the days slip by
It's easier to bleed than try

And if you feel you're all alone
Reality can make it so
You shouldn't let the days slip by
It's easier to sleep than try

So I run and hide
Tell myself it's fake this time
The painted sky
Run and hide, back against the wall
Catch a glimpse this time before you .. fall.

Chorus:
You care too much about things
You dream them all the time
You overthink the little things
Invading your mind
You care too much to be free
The world could be a lie, it seems

The world could be a lie
Overthinking in your mind
All it seems, only to find
It's a prison
Killing time

When we painted the sky
We painted our minds
The architects of design
In dreams our fears remain
The last blood drains
Take out my f***ing eyes
Messages don’t leave
I only see my collapse

Chorus
