Track Name: North to the Future
North to the Future
 
You could tell by the way she dressed
She was a woman of few regrets.
She knew that living was as good as it gets,
And she made the most of it.
 
Don’t know how long she’d been gone,
From the Land of the Midnight Sun,
But when she talked about her home,
Well you could see it in her soul.
 
I wish you could see,
All that I’ve seen,
I wish you could Know
Oh!
 
And if this tired old car,
Could make a trip that far,
I’d show you my heart.
I would take you home.”
 

Said she’s honest to a fault.
Hell, if that’s what you want to call it.
I think you say it the way you saw it.
Never needed a second thought.
 
And I won’t disagree,
All I know is Tennessee.
I’d love to see the things you’ve seen.
I’d love to stand where you have been.
 
I wish that you knew
Of all that I’d been through
I wish you could go,
Oh!
 
And if this tired old car,
Could make a trip that far,
I’d show you my heart.
I would take you home.”

This routine, this routine
you know it's slowly killing me.
I'm alive, I'm alive
but I can't say I'm really living.
 
This machine, this machine
you know it's got a hold on me.
Day by day, day by day
it can be so unforgiving.
 
The mirror makes you out to be whatever you don't want to see if you're scared to look.
Allow yourself to know that on your own you would already have what it took.
Let go of the lies you hold inside and you'll find your peace.
you'll see the path was always clear and the things you feared have no meaning.
 
Turn it off, turn it off!
I need a break from my own thoughts.
Switch the tape, switch the tape,
how many times will i relive this?
 
Make it stop, make it stop!
My stomach's tangled up in knots.
Why can't I, why can't I
even accept my own forgiveness?
 
The mirror makes you out to be whatever you don't want to see if you're scared to look.
Allow yourself to know that on your own you would already have what it took.
Let go of the lies you hold inside and you'll find your peace.
you'll see the path was always clear and the things you feared have no meaning.
 
and oh, just so you know: you are already whole.
Track Name: Faded
Faded
 
I could never touch the sun as hard as I try.
I could never be the one to love my own mind.
The way I've become, the way I live life…
The more that I'm numb, the more I survive…
 
The higher you are the harder you fall.
 
If I could see the other side, maybe I’d hope
If I could live another life, maybe I'd cope
It's all I can do to run from the pain,
I'll make it through if I just fade away.
 
The higher you are the harder you fall
 
Kill me right where I stand I'm not worthy of living.
I'm just a shell of a man lying here on the floor.
I find it hard to play all of the cards I've been given,
So I take and I take till I just can't think anymore.

I think I'm in love with myself for the first time,
I didn't know that life could be this good.
I used to hold all these worries in my mind,
I didn't know that I could change for good.

But it looks like I could....
It looks like I could...

It took you to show me the light inside me,
to make it where I could see the light there too.
I think that you've opened my mind to finding,
a new peace of mind and a new point of view.

Thank you for helping me see...me.
Thank you for helping me be...me.

I guess I'm in love with myself for the first time,
I didn't know that life could be this good.
I used to hold all these worries in my mind,
I didn't know that I could change for good.

Thank you for helping me see...me.
Thank you for helping me be...me.

Devil's Eyes
 
I see you standing there,
you saw me long ago.
The way you flip your hair
you let the whole room know:
you got a thirst for blood
and you get what you want.
You motion me to come close
and now you're on the hunt.
 
So we sneak off somewhere.
You lead me by the hand.
You got that killer stare,
that I just can't withstand.
You come in for your kill,
you lean in for your bite
I hold my breath so still
and feel so paralyzed...
 
...and you take my mind,
and you hold my soul,
while I lose all time,
I just lose control,
and you take my mind,
and you hold my soul.
I get taken by...
I get taken by...
The Devil's eyes
 
You got me wrapped around,
your perfect tiny thumb,
and there's no stopping now,
your poison makes me numb.
You've got me figured out,
you planned this all along.
I want the want so bad,
and that's what turns you on...
 
...and you take my mind,
and you hold my soul,
while I lose all time,
I just lose control,
and you take my mind,
and you hold my soul.
I get taken by...
I get taken by...
