Track Name: foreign shores
we lost the rudder, babe
right before the squall
we might go under, hey
it's all, all alright

when i said i loved you
you worried for my heart
would there be enough glue
when it falls, falls apart

no need to worry about me
so much
anymore
we're just ships in the night
from foreign shores

guess i found a home
in a new land
still do what i used to
everything
i can't stand

hate to say i'm alone
my friends are alright
just an island in a storm
ev'ry night

no need to worry about me
so much
anymore
we're just ships in the night
from foreign shores
Track Name: bailing water
i wanted to say something real
but i pushed too hard
you were so unmoved
by me
i wanted to know what you feel
and i wanted you bare
but you were so closed
to me

o but o to smell the flower
who could sing such a song?
all color and power

but i was never that strong
i was never that strong
i was never strong

you sent me through my paces
but i found myself breathless
you were much too fast
for me
you were shooting out aces
i never had a full deck
you were much too good
for me

o but o to smell the flower
who could sing such a song?
all color and power

but i was never that strong
i was never that strong
i was never strong
Track Name: only this broken thing
can't give up
can't give in
no one can know
what I'm fighting against
but it still shows
despite your ignorance
shaken and sallow
dragged along the distance

I am the broken
you refuse to see
I am the broken
I did not choose to be

stay shut up
stay shut in
no one wants to hear you
cry again
bleed alone
bleed within
no one wants to see you
dying
you are not allowed
you must keep hiding

I am the broken
you refuse to see
I am the broken
I did not choose to be

I want it to be over
I'm tired of being
only this broken
only this broken thing
Track Name: blinking lights
these are the notes
from books i've read
scrambled bits left
in my head
these are the words
some one else said
put them in
my mouth instead

to find the answers in my head
to find out if i'm truly dead
to ask the questions left unsaid

these are the notes
of songs i've heard
i can say them
word for word
this is the place
in somebody's world
where i've lost myself
in search

to find the answers in my head
to find out if i'm truly dead
to ask the questions left unsaid

who is controlling
where have i been
who else is in my head

to find the answers in my head
to find out if i'm truly dead
who else is in my head
why are the lights
all blinking red?
Track Name: the village
in the ashes of the fire
the pale moon looks tired
there's been a burning
down in Lincolnshire
and past the closed glass curtains cross town
folks inquire
who started that fire
down in Lincolnshire?

and through pressed lips,
"oh we knew it would come to this.
and how could they be so bold,
as if we don't exist?"

in a town so dark
everyone carries a spark
some days
you just get burned
and they could think of no one to blame
cuz on that list
was every one's name
who started that fire
down in Lincolnshire

and through pressed lips,
"oh we knew it would come to this.
and how could they be so bold,
as if we don't exist?"

and in the moonlight
the fire danced so bright
no one came out of the house
that night

and in the ashes of the fire
the pale moon
looks tired
