Track Name: Now That I Find You Insane
I walked through the cold and the rain
Just to try to ease your pain
When I showed you what you had done
You turned and ran from everyone

Now that I find you insane
That's what's etched into my brain
I have no more sympathy
Now I just look out for me

Two for the one
Stop and and it's only begun
I'm telling you it's too close to home
All those people are alone

Now that I find you insane
That's what's etched into my brain
I have no more sympathy
Now I just look out for me
Track Name: I Go To Pieces
Don't talk to me about your rights
You're gonna do what you want to do anyway
You came to me in the night
All I was to you was just a warm place to stay

So young and staring at the ceiling
It leaves imagination reeling
If there's an answer it's not here
I go to pieces when you're near

Do you know the meaning of love?
Can you ever give back what is given you?
Do you know the meaning of faith?
One man to turn to when the day is through

Do you want someone to hold on
To one so vicious and confused as you?
Oh Kelly, I was the man
The one who died trying to understand you

So young and staring at the ceiling
It leaves imagination reeling
If there's an answer it's not here
I go to pieces when you're near
Track Name: Hidden Feelings
Hidden feelings are here in my heart
Disagreements, things are falling apart
And I knew it right from the start
Please don't leave me

Complications: everything that I see
Insinuation, my world's falling down around me
Give me shelter, keep me cool as the sea
Please believe me

Stop your talking, there's no one here to hear
I guess we're all alone
Stop your lying, all your sleeping around
It cuts me to the bone

Won't you believe in me?
Will you stop deceiving me?

Hidden feelings are here in my heart
Disagreements, things are falling apart
And I knew it right from the start
Please believe me

Stop your talking, there's no one here to hear
I guess we're all alone
Stop your lying, all your sleeping around
It cuts me to the bone

Won't you believe in me?
Will you stop deceiving me?
Track Name: You Know Who I Am
You say you don't know me but you do
You know who I am
You say you don't want me but you do
You know who I am

You're walking through the park with me
I see you all alone
Time goes by so slowly
Since you've been gone

You say you don't want me but you do
You know who I am

You say you don't want my number
You say you don't know my address
You're looking in the mirror
You're looking at a mess

You say you don't know me but you do
You know who I am

I see you there in front of me
Such a fatality
But in reality
Say goodbye to your virginity

You say you don't know me but you do
You know who I am

You say you don't know my number
You say you don't know my address
You're looking in the mirror
You're looking at a mess

You see, I know what you want
You see, I know what you need
I'M SO BIG I'M GONNA MAKE YOU BLEED
Track Name: Maranatha
If we pretend to care
Whether we live or die
Would you have the heart
To break down and cry?

With things falling down all around
And the world is on the brink
Doesn't even give us
Time to think

Of the consequences so wide
There's nowhere to hide
This world will fuse our souls
But it will not fill our bowls

So look to the sky
With a glimmer for you and me
I've gotta say all I see
Is maranatha for you and me

What is the measure of a civilized people?
Is it the graves we dig?
The cheeks we turn
The songs we sing
The crosses be burn
The masks we wear
The jobs we take
The death we fear
The love we make?

I can see the decadence and deceit
Seeping through our screen doors
The very fabric of our uniqueness is torn
Without some measure of faith

A thousand minds rally for me to survey
In a humble kind of Judgment Day
When will the world learn the way to mend
The bridges that are burning at both ends?
