Red Frame 03:01
The Red Frame holds a face One that time cannot replace And if I see it fall I'll have nobody to call For I'll be lonely Oh so lonely And in my mind it'll be erased In my mind it'll be erased In my mind it'll be erased See once upon a time For love I played the mime And so silently I tried to act my part But unfortunately for my small heart Hers belonged to someone new And I was left in the dark I was left in the dark I was left in the dark The red frame holds a face One that time cannot replace But I'll do without I'll do without Fa la la la Fa la la la Fa la la la Fa la la la

The Line 02:43
So where do you draw the line? Where do you draw the line Down in the sand Can't be bothered with lies Can't be bothered with truth It makes you ache What's the point in fighting? Swimming up that stream So where do we go from here? Backed up in a corner Of our own design Not that it matters now It didn't have to end up coming Down to this The mob won't stop the melee Now our gloves come off So where do you draw the line? When's it gonna stop you dead Within your tracks? Wise not to give up now All invested in a losing hand What's the sense in trying? It may not end up that way.

The Risk 02:46
You've emptied your pockets Cried yourself dry Opened up your heart To watch it die on the vine Thoughts turn to darkness An unpleasant mind The life you always wanted Was a flash in the pan That's what you get For all your dreamin' That's what you get But I think you'll find That's just the risk we take The risk we take for love C'mon, don't be sad The worst part of it's through Give it time to heal And try again It's not the end It's the beginning of something new You'll make a mess again Forgive me, it's true. That's what you get For all your heartache That's what you get But I think you'll find That's just the risk we take The risk we take for love C'mon now You've been down this road You know in your heart You'll do it again So c'mon, c'mon, c'mon Let's do it again Yeah yeah yeah yeah And that's what you get For all your schemin' That's what you get But I think you'll find That's just the risk we take The risk we take for love That's just the risk we take for love That's just the risk we take for love That's just the risk we take for love

Fever Pitch 03:09
I'm a frustrated guy In a frustrated world And I'm not alone But I'm by myself People are shouting From their windows and doors We miss the point Just to even the score The clashes turn to violence over trivia Our lives are in contention with the things we think we need I'm boiling, I'm broiling Nothing makes much sense You can see what's got me now I'm at a fever pitch! Culture on the skids I can't take anymore Fights over TV and film While health is poor Love has become a four letter word Hate will take it's place Please give me some more The clashes turn to violence over trivia Our lives are in contention with the things we think we need I'm boiling, I'm broiling Nothing makes much sense You can see what's got me now I'm at a fever pitch! Why all the resistance to the common good When resistance is insistence and I wish I could I can't take it or fake it It makes me sore That my mistrust and my distrust Cannot stop the war The clashes turn to violence over trivia Our lives are in contention with the things we think we need I'm boiling, I'm broiling Nothing makes much sense You can see what's got me now I'm at a fever pitch!

Something happened to Emily Walking home last night Put a hand on her mouth A gun to her head With no one in sight Bipolar Emily You sure get knocked down a lot And bipolar Emily She always gets back up She took the same path home everyday He'd been watching her for awhile Chat chat on the celly phone But she had a pretty smile And Emily kicked and she clawed and screamed As he tore at her clothes She kneed that jerk right in the nuts 'Cause that's how the story goes Bipolar Emily Just thought you deserved a song Goodbye, Mrs. Emily You're forgotten but you're not gone And someday Mrs. Emily Will you teach me to be that strong? Looking down the barrel of a 9mm I think I'd have gone along Goodbye Mrs. Emily Just thought you deserved a song Because Bipolar Emily She's forgotten but she's not gone

Been out in the rain For too long Got nothing to show For my pain Been chasing a lie Around Adjacent to my truth inside And I hope that things turn out alright I hope to find some delight I hope to move on soon To move on soon Been lost of the dark Of fear Scared of these listless thoughts of mine Been out in the cold So real Warm days just feel like failing sun But I want to see me shine again I want to feel the warmth, but when? I want to feel the love Feel the love Been out in the rain For too long Think I'm gonna head inside for now Keep holding my head Up high Hope the glow of beauty casts its light Been out in the rain For too long Been out in the rain For too long It's time to come inside It's time to come on in It's time to come inside It's time to come on in It's time to come inside It's time to come on in It's time to come inside It's time to come on in It's time to come inside

Time again Time to watch the failing of faith Ooo ooo Make that sinking feeling Go away End in sight I see the ground below Ahead This wouldn't be the first time Can't tell if it's the last time Couldn't tell you of another time This low Will I be the lone survivor As it all goes down in flame? Will I live to tell the story Of another crash landing? Victim of hope I hang my head and cry Mmm mmm Something force this fluster Away I know I'll try again I'll try to mold the pieces of time I'll build it back to better Resurrect some former glory I'll take the team to victory again I won't walk away alone From wreckage and flame We will live to tell the story Of another crash landing

I just need some validation Need to prove I'm doing right Need to hear from the people I wanna gain some insight But all I hear, so severe Makes me wanna lose my mind For this I pay, to hear you say To try again sometime Is all my work here just for nothing? Why care about faceless words? Put myself through endless torture All I know is it hurts when you pay for it Not like I need the pressure Not like this is life or death But there's still this stinging feeling inside I'm no good unless you come to confide What I do, to change the mood To make our dreams come true For all I know, it's just for show And I"m the only one who cares What am I to do? Is all my work here just for nothing? Why care about faceless words? Put myself through endless torture All I know is it hurts when you pay for it I don't like unsolicited advise But its hard to take what I asked fore The hardest pill to swallow Is the one of your own design Is all my work here just for nothing? Why care about faceless words? Put myself through endless torture All I know is it hurts when you pay for it

I know it's basic And you'll never hear it These words I sing They fall on deaf ears It needs to be said How much I really care When you're down I'm always here And I know this won't be your favorite song But its straight from me to you And I know I've put you on the spot But I don't expect your reply Hopeless and foolish I bear my heart to you But then I hide in melody It's hard to be open In this shut down world Where everything Is not what it seems And I know this won't be your favorite song But it's straight from me to you And I know I've put you on the spot But I don't expect your reply I"ll keep this brief For time is fleeting And I tend to ramble on Just know I love you Even in spite of myself I hope you don't disagree And I know this won't be your favorite song But it's straight from me to you And I know I've put you on the spot But I don't expect your reply
