Track Name: Blinding Light
drained of all i have
i’m passed out in your arms
it makes me understand what it really means to fall apart
i try to run and hide
but heaven already knows
if the beating in my chest is loud enough to open doors

i’m jumping off come with me
we’re not scared at all
a blinding light you can’t see

i’ll trust you with my life
even when you lie
we can play this masquerade
until the last of our flames die
and i’m stepping to the edge
cursing out your name
the drugs have not kicked in but it’s enough to numb the pain

i’m jumping off come with me
we’re not scared at all
a blinding light you can see

feels like a million tons have lifted from my shoulders all at once
how that can change a man so quickly
of all that its put me through just save me, save me
Track Name: Easy Fit
you can never win them all
you can have a taste to see how hard it falls
try to separate the truth but you’re talking to the wall
the longest one night stand
is still a one night stand
even if you leave a mark it doesn’t mean they will change their plans

its cruel how you can use someone
and never blink an eye
you get them soaking wet and then you leave them out to dry
never was it meant to cause you harm
you just made an easy fit
but ill see you straight through it all until our hearts decide to quit

when the tables take a turn
and you can see the other side
well it might not be a crime
but it doesn’t make it right
well the parade goes up and down this place
and i cant remember anybody’s face
you gave me wine you gave me time
and then you looked the other way

its cruel how you can use someone
and never blink an eye
you get them soaking wet and then you leave them out to dry
never was it meant to cause you harm
you just made an easy fit
but ill see you straight through it all until our hearts decide to quit
Track Name: Father's Gun
you came upon your fathers gun
buried in the drawer of what he’s done
and he just might use it
the tangled web your mothers spun
left you in the middle with a son
and no solution

its hard to see it clearly when the love is running low
sorry never comes before the whole thing blows
but if you think of something pretty eventually it shows
hold on to what you love before its out of your control
its out of your control

where you came from years ago
no accidents, no blame to throw around
you’ve seen this tumble down
when do you disown the name
30 years and nothing seems to have changed
mistakes in the making

its hard to see it clearly when the love is running low
sorry never comes before the whole thing blows
but if you think of something pretty eventually it shows
hold on to what you love before its out of your control
its out of your control
Track Name: Keeps It Burning
and when the darkness comes along
she keeps it burning
until the torch scars her arm
is this worth saving
oh the heart cant lie
with all the dust and ashes fly they nearly sting you blind

i’m wide awake its 4am
the pen is shaking
i’m writing with a loaded hand
no sense i’m making
but oh my words cant lie
with all the dust ashes fly it leaves me asking why

its tangled up and complicated
i don’t want to feel this jaded
but i can’t tell if i’m in love or not
i’ll wait and see if something else blows up

and like the brightest fireball
that won’t stop roaring
eventually the love explodes in all its glory
oh the days go by
and all the dust and ashes fly
they leave me asking why i do it again

she keeps it burning
till something else blows up
Track Name: What It Is
some are gifted some have nothing
some are born filthy rich
some are starving for attention
and there are those that never win
its not your fault what you were born as,
and who is to blame that it started out like this?
the road i am walking is a bit familiar
i guess it is what it is

I will try and tell you what i am thinking
so i made a simple list
your beauty scares me for no good reason
i guess it is what it is
sometimes love makes you senseless
sometimes love slaps you in the face
let us be real now, and call it even 
as we go our separate ways

Oh you can’t force it in to something
Cause the more you push the more they push away
So before you’re left with nothing
let it go

Do not spend your lifetime reading guidelines
living on the sidelines like this
take your clothes off for no good reason
but to feel like you exist
the preacher is screaming some new notion
and they are all set for happiness
but life will fuck you
then it is what it is
