Track Name: You For Me
I don't care
When people stare
They look so mean
They make me smile

Open up your heart and see
You were meant for me

Do they see that we're not the same?
Is that why they stare?
Cause we don't play their game?
Do they see that you belong to me?
I know that you belong to me.
Track Name: Simple Pleasures For The Complex
Simple pleasures for the complex
I love being bored
I don't mind just passing the time away
Simple pleasures for the complex
I love being bored
Never doing anything that pays

There is nothing to drag me down
I love laying 'round the town
I don't got money weighing me down
I'm happy

You and me, we've got a long time
To lay in the sun
Handing out flowers to everyone
Nothing good is ever easy
Except for this love
The love we have for each and everyone

Simple pleasures for the complex
I love being bored
I don't mind just passing the time away
Simple pleasures for the complex
I love being bored
Never making money
Never getting paid
Track Name: This Invert Reality
The moss and the willow tree
The romantic dream of family
It's all illusion don't you see
For none of us are really free
From this invert reality
I hold my head it's not for me
I know who I am, but not how to be
I know I'm nice but they say I'm mean

Oh, there's nothing to do anymore
Oh, there's nothing to say anymore
They don't know

The dream and the fantasy
The things I hold so dear to me
We're all alone and without peace
Oh will this madness ever cease
In tune with love I hope to be
I long to hold a memory
There's no one else but you I see
My undivided reverie

Oh there's nothing to do anymore
It's all been done
Oh there's nothing to say anymore
We don't know
Track Name: Desire Canticle
Those who restrain desire
Do so because
Theirs is weak enough to be restrained

And the years go by without ever finding your love
Track Name: My Reach Exceeds My Grasp
My reach exceeds my grasp
It's because I never ask
I do whatever I want
I wouldn't try to change you

Don't criticize and cry
I couldn't explain it
We'll never know why
I'm the way I am
And you're not
I wouldn't try to change you

Just let me choose
Track Name: The Moon And The Liar
Pluck the stars from the heavens
They're just lights
That one day go out
When your madness ascends
There'll be no need to shout

Lift the pen from the paper
Tell the jester he was right
About the moon and the liar
They're dancing tonight

Lay her down
She's a faker
Her lies are too deep
And in the whites of her eyes
I can feel your cold sleep
Track Name: I Couldn't Tell Her
I feel my heartbeat under the water

I couldn't tell her, I couldn't tell her what to do my love
Is it you she's thinking of

It's you, and it's me
We've broken free
From Tyranny

I'm seeing stars whenever I kiss you

I couldn't tell him, I couldn't tell him what to do my love
Is it me he's thinking of
Track Name: I Died For Beauty
I'm sick of all the ones who say
Your voice is louder everyday
A louder voice does not equate
Confidence, or strength innate
I died for beauty
I died and I won't come back
I died for beauty
I died
I died for beauty
I died and I won't come back
I died for beauty
I died

Fuck your words
I can't relate
To what you don't appreciate
I am me
And you're still you
Tall poppy syndrome
Gleaming through
I died for beauty
I died and I won't come back
I died for beauty
I died
Track Name: Their World Of Fear
In their world of fear
It gets darker every year
And they're trying to keep us
From the light
But the truth will shine
From an open loving mind
An unrestrained
Beautiful delight
Delight

In their world of fear
It gets darker every year
And they're trying to keep us
From the light
One day they will know
That their greed won't let them go
From their never ending night
The night
The night, with no moon
That's their night

And the wind that blows
Through the trees lets me know
We are more than our money
And our time
Though it's hard to let go
And to feel the flow
Of rhythm, songs, and rhyme
Rhyme
It's all the matters me
Is songs and rhyme

"never lose your sense of wonder
Even if you lose all else"
Track Name: Love Far Away
My love is far away
I don't know anymore
What this living is for

Is this demon here to stay
Did it come through me
Is it that plain to see

I wish I didn't feel the cold that day
I can remember how his touch
graced my skin

My love is far away
Will I ever be his
Will I taste one last kiss

My love is far away
I don't know anymore
What this living is for

How could God repay His child with such pain
