Evil Things 04:17
I feel like I'm in a dream and I wanna wake up God knows it's not what it seems I can't find my way out I feel like somebody else and no one knows me now I'm on the edge of this world and I wanna get down I wanna get out, I wanna get out of this place Windows been shutting in my mind Stay close They're climbing up the walls like flames to pull down the wool over my eyes As they close to shutter in the dark black smoke They're lining up them evil things to pull down the wool I don't wanna be lost, I don't wanna be lost in the dark I feel like I'm in a dream and I wanna wake up A spark of what I used to be "shown" a light in the dark I feel like somebody else and no one knows me now I'm on the edge all alone and I wanna get down I wanna get out, I wanna get out of this place Windows been shutting in my mind Stay close They're climbing up the walls like flames to pull down the wool over my eyes As they close to shutter in the dark black smoke They're lining up them evil things to burn down the wool over my eyes As they close to shutter in the dark black smoke They're lining up them evil things to burn down the wool over my eyes As they blow into Winter frost Deeper into the dark of the night, no dawn I don't wanna be lost, I don't wanna be lost in the dark

The shapes you cast leave rings in the water Where no eyes would dare to gaze I would lay you down in the garden Cover you with dirt like blankets By the lake where ghosts still gather Autumn winds bring leaves that scatter Oh, it's just like magic Close your eyes and I slip away Where we all disappear Burn holes through time Pass away Somehow you shift shapes in the night With secrets buried deep you hide and hold the weight of all the air in hands Your stories so old that you just tend to keep By the lake where ghosts still gather One day I will mend whats tattered Oh, it's just like magic Close your eyes and I slip away Where we all disappear Burn holes through time Pass away There's no way to save the soul that you gave You can't take it back It faded away All that you have is holding you back It's weighing you down
3.
I hear your voice in the darkness It haunts my mind Echoes of the past I hear dark sounds from my dreams Alone with memories I saw you there Oh, the cold wind blows Sends a shiver down to your bones Oh, the restless wind Ghosts knocking on the glass Tapping on the windows, waking up the past Oh, it never ends Time goes by so fast Now that you're gone I hear your voice in the darkness It haunts my mind Echoes of the past I see a face, reflections Inside the mirrors walls I never meant to leave you long Oh, the cold wind blows Sends a shiver down to your bones Oh, the restless wind Ghosts knocking on the glass Tapping on the windows, waking up the past Oh, it never ends Time goes by to fast Now that you're gone
4.
Lost in the haze You and I wait in the places that we used to go back then Flow through the hours These days pass through the hallway so slowly As time does haunt me like a ghost Always often I waited to long Hold me like a child in your hopeless arms For I'm nothing more than the toy you once had your way with I'm a china doll Oh, you loved me once but now I'm gone It hurts I'm tender to the touch would you hold me like a child just once more it hurts I'm tender to the touch Please hold me like a child just one more time Throw myself to the skies flames Reflections they cast off the mirror lake Lines around my scarecrow eyes change Even though I know they'll always be there To haunt me like a ghost Moves so slow to hide in the place of them walls All them nights I waited for you in the starlight Dreams I've had of you Fade with me in the sand Hold me like a child in your loveless arms For I'm nothing more than the toy you once had your way with I'm a china doll Oh, you loved me once but now I'm gone It hurts I'm tender to the touch Would you hold me like a child just once more It hurts I'm tender to the touch Please hold me like a child just one more time

Sometimes 03:30
This place reminds me of old times I relive those days in my mind A castle built when we were kids Held on to the things we did Hanged underneath the Christmas lights Rolling around winter nights Sometimes I never let you go Covers and blankets of snow Cold, my chest is a cave It's an endless abyss through the walls where I drift For a light in the dark I wonder where I am, I wonder where you are Take this wish that I made God, I love you so I don't wanna let you go Phantom limbs in the night have come to wrap you up Don't often think of what I had Always I just end up sad Sometimes at night I get so cold Sometimes I just can't get close enough You feel so far away Once and awhile, always Sometimes I hold you in my arms Once and awhile I wonder where you are Cold, my chest is a cave It's an endless abyss through the walls where I drift For a light in the dark I wonder where I am, I wonder where you are Take this wish that I made God, I love you so I don't wanna let you go Phantom limbs in the night have come to wrap you up

Broken down like a rusty ride from an old carnival Lights went out, no ones around It's like a cemetery lawn Conjure spirits from somewhere when mines broken I have a collection of memories but no box I have a collection I have a collection of memories I felt your hands up and down my back But there was nobody there I heard footsteps in the house last night But there was nobody there Conjure spirits from somewhere when mines broken I have a collection of memories in a row I have a collection I have a collection of memories I keep And I remember everything I remember everything I once was
7.
Hurry Up 03:39
The song you sing every-night Til morning comes To fly away when I wake So fast Hide, when I don't wanna cry Just run to you in the fading light So close But I don't wanna go You better hurry up Time to waste here these days To run away So you're not far behind So why do I... Hide, when I don't wanna cry Just run to you in the fading light So close But I don't wanna go You better hurry up

Bell chime and carousels Merry-go-'rounds Every now and then I fall down and hide like children do In the dark In the skeleton closet with bones of porcelain I'm fragile I can't balance on these branches They’re bound to break Down the hillside Through the churchyard lies a cemetery to bury my past Through field stalks Your little boy sits calm I spent my whole life building these walls To have a place to hide April showers The caskets fill around me I'll take flowers and decorate what little space I've made In the dark to lay until these hours fade into warm days If I could save your soul I would walk into the darkness with eyes closed I would fall into the fire without water I'd beg to crawl Ashes ashes we all fall down
9.
Time is blowing away Where the leaves cover me Left me out in the cold Twilight, terrified Time is an awful wait Barely can hide my age Left me out in the cold Winter eyes, terrified Cried over you more than a thousand times The tears that you wanna see The words that you long to hear The cold that you would not feel The past lay still but real Can't hide in the dark Strange, funny how time takes us all away Honey, I was just safe and sound Someone had to let me down I'd lay still all night long The past had the saddest songs They now don't sound the same Time just slips away Time is a warning Circles and signs Left me out in the cold Snowy nights, terrified Cried over you more than a thousand times The tears that you wanna see The words that you long to hear The cold that you would not feel The past lay still but real Can't hide in the dark Strange, funny how time takes us all away Honey, I was just safe and sound Someone had to let me down I'd lay still all night long The past had the saddest songs They now don't sound the same Time just slips away

So Close 04:11
It's hard we were so close I'm in in the dark It's hard to see I waited so long for you to say “Stay with me” I wanna lay you down Runaway I wanna be with you always Oh, I miss you so bad Oh, I watched you fade out like a lamp does in morning light Oh, I'm coming home tonight Everything I was led me to this It's hard to believe I've waited so long out in the rain One of these days... I'm wanna lay you down Runaway I wanna be with you always Oh, I miss you so bad Oh, I watched you fade out like a lamp does in morning light Oh, I'm coming home tonight
11.
Long winding road Home, stone walls, stone cold You're skin and bones Window shades down Eyes on me now Images of your empty arms hold me down You were always haunted Made your home in the shadows with the ghosts In the closet Hide your bones from detachment This web you weave stays hung by sheets With spiders that crawl across your swollen cheeks This web you weave stays hung by sheets With spiders that crawl across your woven cheeks In the bedroom climbing the walls Cracks spread like fire As you lie awake Do more than ghosts reside in the dark? I want to see behind the veil of dust and gale when you close your eyes
