Track Name: Two Paths
I don't know where I'm going,
You see the birds, they're flying south, and you don't even know why.
All the words before you, and they seem so far away.

Two paths and secret laughs, torn by autographs and your smile.
See through, believe in you, I wish I could find my way back home.

You're looking up at my face, all the while my smile's there, and you don't even know why. It'd be nice for a change, please forgive this absentee.
Track Name: Is This Love?
Well I'm late to the show. Standing there, you're all alone.
And I don't know why you would come. I don't know why you would come.
We don't talk, just look away. But our eyes can't help but stray.
And I don't know why you would come. I don't know why you would come.

Like the sunset on the moon, I love everything about you.
With eyes that smolder through and through. It can't be true.

Take my hand and hold it close. Cause I'll float right past our ghosts.
And I don't know why you would come. I don't know why you would come.
And our lips look for a sign. But it's hard to restrain a smile.
And I don't know why you would come. I don't know why you would come.
Track Name: Disturbed Intellectual
I never know what to say, it just seems like another day
to put my dreams out of my mind, and show them off without caring too much.

In a way, it's better this way, to be tortured for all eternity. Wear a mask of happy teeth, says the Disturbed Intellectual.

The coffee shops are far to crowded, but how else will I maintain my prowess, without the angsty girls a gawking. I need to act like I don't notice.

My torn and tattered shoes are walking. Unconscious I go about my business, to read and write and be misunderstood.
The inner pain is really a comfort.
Track Name: Weather The Storm
Weather the storm, weather the storm, your heart is open.
Weather the flame, weather the flame, your mind is closed.

To want, to want, I do. To love, to love, it's you.

Weather the storm, weather the storm, your heart is broken.
Weather the flame, weather the flame, it's my undoing.

To want, to want, I do. To love, to love, it's you.
Track Name: Love Yourself
Simply finding another heart isn't work.
It's the soul that makes fonder, the soul that makes us stronger.
And when you need to grasp what you have set yourself to do.
find a soul that makes you stronger, a soul that makes you fonder of you.

So love yourself, yes love yourself, and you will find a soul that loves you too.

With a wonder you never know what to do,
but the soul will lead you over, the soul will bring you closer to truth.
And when there's strife and crude, the bottom's calling out for you.
Find the souls that make you stronger, the souls that make you fonder of you.

So love yourself, yes love yourself, and you will find a soul that loves you too.
