Track Name: Sneak You In
I'm taken like a photograph some might say
Chopped up and framed, matted for the world on display
Take a look up close, tell me what you see, is it too surreal?
Blended stories of misfortunate mistakes that just get louder, louder, louder

She's an angel I must say as she digs into my mind
Got me changing for the better, yes I've finally found the one
Wake up and feel the weight off your shoulders, while it's pouring rain outside
Learn to let go of the day and let your barrier down

Oh I've been reaching out for you and I --
I've got the feeling that you're reaching all around

So I sneak you in, while the image starts unraveling
Breaking the ground, a reflection of me is pouring out
I sneak you in, between my eyes and underneath my skin

Who could have seen that our love would defy the laws that reign
We'll let time tell the truth, and the bumps along the way
When you find the rhythm you don't let it go, the beat feels stronger every night
It's everything I wanted and I'm ready to build up our dream

Oh I've been reaching out for you and I --
I've got the feeling that you're reaching all around

So I sneak you in, while the image starts unraveling
Breaking the ground, a reflection of me is pouring out
I sneak you in, between my eyes and underneath my skin
Track Name: Lost
She's lost, she's part of the world today
Break off a piece of my soul and bury it underneath the ground
This cycle's ordinary, we're stumbling, staring down our fate with the wrong impression
They stole another story
The cold & rainy morning, I scream & shake but I feel numb

Watch as I float away in my own grave
Searching the haze for shore
Never will I land, cause I'm making the same mistakes

I'm running from myself again
Quite a living apparition, I'm surely disheveled
Ooh while I wait and sing they'll take care of everything
Black clouds are threatening to swallow us whole

...On my own...

Lost - to someone new I presume
Wake up, another day I spend lamenting for her
I'm picking up the pieces left behind with her memory
No more searching for an answer... just take some time to breathe

Caught in the door and I'm shaking from top-down
How could I pull myself in?
Bury the hatchet before I lose my soul

I'm running from myself again
Quite a living apparition, I'm surely disheveled
Ooh while I wait and sing they'll take care of everything
Black clouds are threatening to swallow us whole

...On my own...

I'm running from myself again
Quite a living apparition, I'm surely disheveled
Ooh while I wait and sing they'll take care of everything
Black clouds are threatening to swallow us whole
