Track Name: The Moment
This is the moment before
The loneliness sets in
when somewhere deep inside
you feel it’s the last chance you get

she’s standing before you
there’s tears in her eyes
pleading for you
to forget

This is the moment before
nothing’s the same after this

there’s before and they’ll be after
there’s pain and there’s laughter
but nothing restores our innocence

You can run,
You can hide,
You can’t escape from
the pain of
our fate, love

You feel you can fight,
you can rely on the day comes
to change us

Live or die, you can try
but the tide of time comes

This is the moment before
decisions can’t be unmade

Is life really living?
Is death really free?
Is the choice really yours,
or is it the lie you need?
Track Name: Push and Shove
You say you say what you mean
And you mean what you say
But things have changed

You can raise the stakes
But my expectations have to stay the same?

You move
Back and forth so quickly
That I can't keep it straight

Push and shove
Your love
Keeps my heart at bay

Speak to me
Cause I need to know

Don't it just break break your heart
To see your indecision tear me apart?

Speak to me
Cause I need to know, I need to know
Track Name: Say You Know Me
Everyone else
Receives an apology
I leave with dreams
We meet and we marry

I kneel and you cry
My heart is safe for the very first time

What our hearts can never know
Become the dreams that haunt us so
The dulling ache of coming close
The helplessness of letting go

And if I see you after the sun has set
Will you say you know me?
And if you see my face will you turn away
Will you see right through me?
Will you say you know me?
Will you say you're sorry?

We invite deception in
Because she seems so innocent

One little white lie
Can forever change
The landscape of our lives

And all this time
That I've spent in the graveyard weeping
I've been coming to life
Learning its okay to feel okay again
And if all is alright
Well then I still miss my friend
Track Name: Drawn
your hands are on my throat
my fingers on your lips
i see you’re out for blood
i can taste it on your skin

i’ve fought for 40 days
you’ve wrestled for 40 nights
in this desert of my pride
i can’t tell wrong from right

i am drawn
tense and taut
my rage pointed
fletched against my heart

i’m aimed to the sun
bright and hot
he’s bearing down
waiting for my love

our sweat has turned to salt
the salt has turned to tears
it’s bitter in the mouths
of lovers gripped by fears

the tears have turned to moats
encircling our dreams
dividing mine from yours
yet still you make your siege

too late to turn back
too soon to give up
i’ll die before you hear me say
that i’ve had enough
