Track Name: Hero
Overgrown, monotone
Why you'd want to leave this place
To turn away history
Memory that won't erase
All you've ever known

You're a picture on the wall
A hero that haunts the hall
The part of town you used to know
Is not letting you go

Slip away in the night
No patience left for this mess
Change your name, change your tune
No forwarding address

A home for eternity
In the shadows in your head
If ghosts cannot follow you
Why do you still make a bed
For all the criminals

Make believe
Where you are is what you want
Make believe
Where you are

You're a picture on the wall
The hero that haunts us all
The part of town you used to know
Is now letting you go
Now letting you go
Track Name: Fall Away
Read the book
The lives it took
The darkness around you
Couldn't bare
Leaving you there
Lies becoming true

For all you know
And you'll never know
Everyone's in love with you
We watch you fade
In and out of view
Everyone knew

Take my place
I'll be in yours
Your time travel debut
We'll overflow
It's inevitable
A life for passing through
Track Name: Couldn't Wait
How much I love
You couldn't wait
How much I love
You couldn't wait

Couldn't look the other way

I was so lost
You wouldn't wait
I was so lost
You wouldn't wait

Everything you sold away
To look inside another day
Track Name: Mystery
You open the day
With sleep in your eyes
To get out again
And watch the sun rise

You hope you're alone
When it hums in your head
They're dragging you down
When your sins have been bled

You stayed out all night
Leaving me high
Couldn't find the way
To tell me goodbye

There's a bridge not too far
That takes you away
Every time you cross
I fear you will stay

Some kind of mystery you are
All out on your own
Following any fallen star
To be left alone
Track Name: Stargazer
I walked down
Into the terminal
There you are
Some kind of criminal
No one cares
About your dark little tale

So you're looking up
Just like a stargazer
Every night
Sharp as a razor
In the light
Look at the hell raiser now

You know me
I know who you are
Everybody knows your name
Now you're free
To light like a star
Not everyone thinks you will change

Now you're on the town
And irrestistible
Upside down
A little quizzical
Every word
Falls without making a sound
No you're not making a sound

You know me
We know who you are
Everybody knows your name
Now you're free
To shine like a star
Not everyone thinks you can change
Track Name: Mid Sea
What scares you the most?
That you're hanging on
Or what you're letting go
Gets harder to try
Than forget the days
Forever rolling by

Seen it all before
Don't want to see it anymore

You stood in the light
It's sharpness
Pushing down on anyone
Thought you were reaching out
But you'll never ask
Can only pull away
Track Name: Mermaid
My toes in the water
Just a shell on the sand
Starting over

My eyes
Catch a glimmer
Playing rays of the sun
A song, a swimmer

You can save me
You can steal
Just tell me what is real

A sound
Softly whispers
Barely a melody
To say I'll miss her

Gone
Like a model
Of a ship on a wave
In a bottle
