The dawn of a day anew Gives hope to me and you There's hope at dawn We must keep going on We are living through dark times But we will be just fine There's hope at dawn We must keep going on Pretty pink and blue, first light Replacing the dark, grey night There's hope at dawn We must keep going on Resist, persist, resist, persist Resist The dawn

I was lacking the nerve to write Now I’m asking if there’s still time Everlasting is this urge we fight It’s demanding that there’s still time The sunrise, so brilliant, but elusive it slips away Its colors, elastic, in a moment dissolve and fade I was lacking the nerve to write Now I’m asking if there’s still time Everlasting is this urge we fight It’s demanding that there’s still time Your heart had been reeling from the cards you’d been dealt You could have tried filling the void with something else While you were feeling so sorry for yourself You could have tried healing by helping someone else I was lacking the nerve to write Now I’m asking if there’s still time

It’s the first thought getting out of bed And the last thing at night in your head Always wanting more I guess I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it And you’ll burn this bridge when you’re done with it Always wanting more Pay no mind, Resigned to find no time Feeling trapped in this life you didn’t choose Try to laugh some more but in the end you lose Always wanting more Then there’s only your own selfishness to blame It’s desire to win but then life’s not a game Always wanting more Pay no mind, Resigned to find no time Is this really what you chose to do? Did you it then it’d be killing you? Always wanting more I guess I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it And you’ll burn this bridge when you’re done with it Always wanting more Pay no mind, Resigned to find no time It’s the first thought getting out of bed And the last thing at night in your head Always wanting more

You hate yourself, why can’t you sing? Create a song, pour another drink Self-medicate, it’s fine with me Don’t end it all, do what you need You can’t escape the memories Of screaming and rage, write more melodies Self-medicate, it’s fine with me Don’t end it all, do what you need Starve yourself, then drink your beer Touch yourself, well there’s no one here Self-medicate, it’s fine with me Don’t end it all, do what you need Take a hit, keep your buzz Won’t hurt a bit ‘til tomorrow comes Self-medicate, it’s fine with me Don’t end it all, do what you need You hate yourself, why can’t you sing? Create a song, pour another drink Self-medicate, it’s fine with me Don’t end it all, do what you need

Uncontained, yet inside the rage, the rant When you want to fix it but you can’t You don’t know where to start All you know is the void inside your heart No solutions numb the pain Loss, the anger you can’t contain No disguise or hideaway No solutions numb the pain You can try to act like it’s not there Have your mind pretend it doesn’t care And smile the hate away Yet inside it remains No solutions numb the pain Loss, the anger you can’t contain No disguise or hideaway No solutions numb the pain Are we not agents of what we feel? Do our minds just make up what is real? I don’t know where to start All I know is the void inside your heart. You try to will the loneliness away Get high to fill the void and numb the pain Distract yourself and lie, say it’s okay But inside you know it’s not, end of the day Well inside you know it’s not, end of the day.

Where have I let my mind go? How do you get your mind to pause? If only I could have known The pain I’m capable to cause I’m sorry Forgive me I’m guilty The thing I think I most regret Is letting go of what I had It was the most amazing gift one could ever receive And it is loss that makes us mad I’m sorry Forgive me I’m guilty We pass on what we learn For better or for worse We do it over and over again and again Yet we still wonder why it hurts I’m sorry Forgive me I’m guilty

As hard as a peach pit, this lump in my throat I’m scarred so be it, do I jump in this boat? And admit out loud something’s gone wrong? And I’ve known without doubt for far too long. The monster is screaming, and rattles his cage But no one can hear him while you battle his rage You think someone will come and take care of you But everyone’s numb and nowhere in view. Well in the short term it’s easy, pretend it doesn’t exist Ignore all the feelings, just don’t slit your wrist But like debt or a lie, it’ll catch up to you Forget and get high, but then what will you do? As hard as a peach pit, this lump in my throat I’m scarred so be it, do I jump in this boat? And admit out loud something’s gone wrong? And I’ve known without doubt for far too long. Nothing’s spoken, but implied Something’s broken inside.

You showed up What’s the explanation? Was it out of love or obligation? Am I out of touch? Is it my imagination? Are we out of love? Has the course been run, and now it’s done? Like a ton of bricks, I’ve hit the basement Are you averse to risk? Are you merely complacent? If you had to pick, Would you leave this place and Give me a kick? Find my replacement? You’re my only one I refuse your resignation Don’t want to fight, debate, no negotiation. Are we out of love? Is this our obligation? Are we out of touch? Is it my imagination? Are you out of love? Out of love? I’m not out of love, my love.

Are there no more words to write? Are there no more chords to play? Are there no more songs to sing? Can we all afford not to dream? File it away for another day. Smile as you lay it aside for now. And what do we all share? We all want someone to care. We’re all searching for meaning. We’re all searching for some meaning. We need beauty in our lives Compassion, art, and love What happens when they’re gone? There’s an empty void in us all. File it away for another day. Smile as you lay it aside for now. And what do we all share? We all want someone to care. We’re all searching for meaning. We’re all searching for some meaning.

Inundated It’s complicated A rush of information Inundated Stop and look inside Nothing is simple Your mind takes over Your will doesn’t matter Your mind takes over Stop and look inside Saturated Yet fascinated Flooded by complication Saturated Stop and look inside Inundated Inundated

Why do we hold on to these toxic things? They only serve to poison us. We hope for hope a new day brings. Yes, they will judge, yet your will won’t budge. There’s no avoiding ugly things. Face up to it, damn your self-esteem. You hope for hope a new day brings. Others will talk. Will you fight or walk? Why do we hold on to these toxic things?

Doing things that don’t need doing Chasing dreams that just aren’t real Dreaming big when all dreams end And reality sets in Just so tired And running out of time Losing my mind, wasting my time I don’t know what I should do Keep on breathing, take my pills But reality sets in Just so tired And running out of time So little hope yet so much effort It’s just so much work just to live You want to help yourself and others But there’s nothing more to give. Just so tired And running out of time Thinking only of the future And past mistakes you can’t erase Anything but now this moment and Yet you wonder why You’re so tired And running out of time.

Cicadas in June Kissing under the moon When it was good, it was nearly worth it But is the good worth the bad? All the memories we’ve had, Now my confidence has eroded? Your punching bag A dumping ground A landing pad Your lost and found All the things I’m not All the things I’m not You’ve done it before and you’ll do it again And the sad thing is I’ll let you But I know better than this And you should know better too Don’t bring me down with you Your punching bag A dumping ground A landing pad Your lost and found All the things I’m not All the things I’m not A rock in my heart Every time that you start To destroy me with your anger I can’t live like this, But blame my cowardice There’s got to be something better than Your punching bag A dumping ground A landing pad Your lost and found All the things I’m not All the things I’m not Cicadas in June Kissing under the moon When it was good, it was nearly worth it

It’s your whole life in front of you. Take care, it’s now in view Cause I cannot see it through. You keep knocking at my door. I don’t answer, you ask for more. What I used to love now is a bore. It’s been a good run, but I know I’m done. I know you’ve just begun, but I know I’m done. I see tears flowing down your face, An image I can’t erase. But I can’t help in any case. You’re being here takes the room And you probably wrongly assume That I care much more than I do. It’s been a good run, but I know I’m done. I know you’ve just begun, but I know I’m done. I bend, bend, bend Pretend I can endure. I break, break, break. I can’t fake it anymore. It’s been a good run, but I know I’m done. I know you’ve just begun, but I know I’m done.
