Track Name: Yes Maybe No
So keeping up appearances and clinging to belief
The margins grow so tall between you cannot see
Why would we see
The origin or the element of what can just break free
The piece of mind will wash away
But will we sleep
We might not sleep

Yes Maybe No

The clock is there
The noise it makes
The more it clatters on
To whom we talk
The place we live it all goes on
It must go on
It sometimes makes me smile inside and sometimes gets erased
There is no word
Don't wonder why
We all make haste
We can't be late

Yes Maybe No
Track Name: Take it Away
All the time you wanted
(in the time of your life)
All the sweet goodbyes
(so long my friend)
All the faint reminders
(in the back of your mind)
That somethings worth the time
(so long)

Take it away
but don't forget (you've got to)

On the one, two, three
(four let's go)
As your song should be
(free from it)
In the palm of your hand
(don't let go)
Just like the ones we planned
(it's not you're fault)

Take it away
but don't forget (you've got to)
Track Name: Phantoms
Picture it
Empty square
The silent voice and uncontent
To sit here and take it in
It comes and goes with all you say
Fleeting time and pictures show
The past can die and you must go
Living here it's hard to tell
of all that was and all that's well

We are coming
We are coming
We are coming now

Time well spent
A thought to keep
The morning light is all you need
To rest in it
Leave it now
Bringing home a solemn vow

We are coming
We are coming
We are coming now

Tonight
No end tonight
No end in sight
Until...
Track Name: Rise & Fall
You would be there to listen
To the past and the present aloud
And the moment you feel it leaving
You will stumble upon another path

With your heart open wide
And your dreams grown so tall
And time won't stand still
There's so much to learn
Don't fear the rise and fall

Though the years may seem unrelenting
Though the weather often turns cold
We will all be holding onto
The only thing we know

With your heart open wide
And your dreams grown so tall
And time won't stand still
There's so much to learn
Don't fear the rise and fall
Of it all
Track Name: So What
A picture perfect explanation
And all the patronage not wasted
The color and sound of it all
But what's behind the velvet curtain
The cures and lures of all the earth and
No one man has it all

So What
So What
That restless kind of awkward feeling
The sense that it is so damn fleeting
The weight and the way we come undone

A torrent tide of admiration
Behind the lies of every nation
The senselessness of it all
The beacon light to find the weak in
To follow any single hatred
No one place has it all

So What
So What
That restless kind of awkward feeling
The sense that it is so damn fleeting
The weight and the way we come undone
Track Name: To Sleep, To Dream
All that were willing here
To sleep away their fates
Can't fake it when you're gone
But i'm sure that someone will

And this is my chance
Is my way
Is my time to say
Hold on

Yes it was hard enough
To see this hole leak through
So underwater now
We'll drown or make it through

And this is my chance
Is my way
Is my time
To say I was lost
Now i'm lost
Now i'm lost

Hold on
Track Name: Any Road Will Take You There
(You've got to stop this hiding
You have to wake up now
You know the fear is growing
And it can bring you down)

With all the time in the world to wait
And patience running thin
The light it comes and goes
Flares up
Burns out
A mark upon the skin

(You've got to stop this hiding
You have to wake up now
You know the fear is growing
and it can bring you down)

Speeding off to meet with the hands
The fate
Met with unconvincing stares
And when you don't know where you're going
Any road can take you there

(You've got to stop this hiding
You have to wake up now
You know the fear is growing
and it can bring you down)
Track Name: Matinee
So much time
In a minefield
In a storyline
That ended here

Wake me please
When the credits roll
When the people leave
It's understood

I will not forget the things we did
I will not forget the smile
Your eyes
Lately all these days last so long
Maybe all of these days are gone

Now it's time
And the music fades
And the lights come up
Signaling
But I enjoyed every single day
Every memory made
With no regrets

I will not forget the things we did
I will not forget the smile
Your eyes
Lately all these days last so long
Maybe all of these days...

I will not forget the things we did
I will not forget the smile
Your eyes
Lately all these days last so long
Maybe all of these days are gone
