Track Name: Doll Heart
She's got a doll heart
So delicate and small
It beats so tenderly
Like it's not there at all

If you push her
She'll turn and run away
And her feet
Won't make a sound

She's got a doll heart
Fits in a tiny hand
And if you break it
She'll slip away like sand

If you scream at her
You sleep
She'll run away
You'll never hear
Her tattered little shoes again

She's got a doll heart
And though her dress looks worn
She's seen better days
Before her seams were torn

Somebody took her
And dragged her to the ground
Keep her safe
Keep your arms around

She's got a doll heart
A little doll heart
Track Name: Stuck
Years have passed
There's no change
And there won't be
Until you see
The bulbs over their heads won't light your way

Fireflies crushed in your hand
Ground them hard into the sand
Broken wings and firm demands

Oh Mother
Why am I stuck?
Why do my feet drag on the ground?
Oh Father
Why can't I move?
Why can't I get out of this?

Oh Mother
Why do I scream?
Why do I blame?
Wallow in shame?
Oh Father
How will I learn not to ride on a wheel of pain?

Food of love is plentiful
But you can't sow
What you don't grow
You've made your home
On a barren lonely plain

There is no give and take
It's bone dry ground you rake
In a dust cloud
How does one navigate

Oh Mother
Why am I stuck?
Why do my feet drag on the ground?
Oh Father
Why can't I move?
Why can't I get out of this?

Oh Mother
Why do I scream?
Why do I blame?
Wallow in shame?
Oh Father
How will I learn not to ride on a wheel of pain?

Oh Mother
Why am I stuck?
Why is my heart full of rage and despair?
Oh Father
Why can't I give in?
Why can't I learn to show that I care?
Oh Mother
Why don't I bend?
Why must I twist?
Strangling bliss

Oh Father
Will I ever mend?
Oh Mother
Will I ever mend?
Track Name: Open Your Eyes
I live in dreams
Beyond the seams
Of time and space
A life you know

I ride all night
Over the light
Around a city made of coal

Enter a house
With velvet walls
Embrace one moment with me now

This world of gray
Out of the way
Open your eyes and see

Meant to be

Open your eyes
And the night will open up to hear your cries
Open your mind
Let the stars illuminate your way tonight

I live in dreams
Beyond the seams
Of time and light
A life you know

I ride all night
Over the light
Around a city made of coal

Enter my home
Velvet abode
The water's running in this room

I welcome thee
So secretly
And in the air, lotus perfume

Meant to be

Open your eyes
And the night will open up to hear your cries
Open your mind
Let the stars illuminate your way tonight

Open your eyes
And a door will open up above the sky
Open your mind
Let the stars illuminate our way tonight
Track Name: Broken Angels Singing (it's only fear)
Broken Angels singing
Through a hail of bullets
Paralyzed legs, and he crawls to safety
Clinging to a lifeboat in a frozen sea
The way you learn to be

Broken Angels singing
Through a hail of bullets
Paralyzed mind, and she walks to safety
Tell yourself that it's only fear
It's what you need to hear

Will of iron
Will of stone
Nothing ventured, nothing known
Moving onward through the mire

Darkness takes you for a spin
Leaves you different within
Burning tracks and spinning tires

Broken Angels singing
Through a hail of bullets
Paralyzed legs, and he crawls to safety
Clinging to a lifeboat in a frozen sea
The way you learn to be

Broken Angels singing
Through a hail of bullets
Paralyzed mind, and she walks to safety
Tell yourself that it's only fear
It's what you need to hear

Will of iron
Will of steel
You learn how to take the wheel
Moving onward through the pain

Badness said, I need a ride
Goodbye Jekyll
Hello Hyde
Leave him in the acid rain

Broken Angels singing
Through a hail of bullets
Paralyzed legs, and he crawls to safety
Clinging to a lifeboat in a frozen sea
The way you learn to be
It's only fear

Broken Angels singing
Through a hail of bullets
Paralyzed mind, and she walks to safety
Tell yourself that it's only fear
It's what you need to hear
It's only fear
Track Name: Wires and a Dream
I want to run a wire
Down to my very soul
See through brand new eyes
See the future
Bright and bold

There are wires and a dream
Want it to be my reality
So many wires floating free
Put them inside of me

I want a chip implanted
And they may laugh at me now
I'll be learning in my sleep
Then I'll be showing them how

There are wires and a dream
Want it to be my reality
So many wires floating free
Put them inside of me

There are wires, and a dream
Fuse it into reality
So many wires floating free
Put them inside of me

(softly spoken) Cyborg, Cyborg, Cyborg
Track Name: Dirt
Lingering in tears wasn't for me
Swimming in a salty gray sea
We couldn't join our hands over rocks, dear

Not to be
Not to be

I see your broken bridges burn
Witness the smoke at every turn

Look into the rear view and I'm gone
Like a shadow hidden by a tree
Down "the lane" and into history
You'll forget the way it used to be

Look into the rear view and I'm gone
Move into your brand new life today
The sun is far too bright for ghosts to stay
Your angels sing
Because I walked away

Lingering in lies wasn't for me
Your water in my eyes
On my face
So raise a glass today
Not in anger
Or disgrace
You put me in my place

Karma hit me where I live
Time to get nothing
Time to give

Look into the rear view and I'm gone
Like a shadow hidden by a tree
Down "the lane" and into history
You'll forget the way it used to be

Look into the rear view and I'm gone
Move into your brand new life today
The sun is far too bright for ghosts to stay
Your angels sing
Because I walked away
Track Name: Sunrise of the Mind
Far from the wall screen
Walked on the outside
Thought about a new day
Sunrise of the mind

Up from the ashes
Butterfly pages
Kerosene secrets
Sunrise of the mind

Minding the fire
No one is brighter
Save them from the cinders
Sunrise of the mind

Sunrise
You won't perpetuate the lie
Sunrise
Bright colored pills and plastic smiles
Sunrise
She said "they're calling out my name"
Sunrise
And you refused to play the game

Far from the wall screen
Walked out the outside
Thought about a new day
Sunrise of the mind

Up from the ashes
Butterfly pages
Kerosene secrets
Sunrise of the mind

Thoughts in the fire
No one is brighter
Save them from the cinders
Sunrise of the mind

Sunrise
You flew far from the sleeping hive
Sunrise
And now you truly feel alive
Sunrise
Your mind belongs to only you
Sunrise
Horizon light, of hope and truth
Track Name: Open Your Eyes (guitar version)
