Track Name: Forget How to Dream
I've got ten thousand reasons to live
But only one to take my life from all the suffering I hid
It's just a phase every kid goes through
Some would call it ego but to me it's attitude
You're twenty five and you feel so clear
You seem to be invincible without much fear
You let your guard down, you're the talk of the town
And your friends are nowhere to be found

When I fall asleep I forget how to dream
I'm bursting at the seams and all shall pass
It's seems to be there's nothing I can do
Some people need the strength of God to get them through

I've got no religion to decide for me
All the things in life that question curiosity
Like is it wrong to hurt the ones you love
Even if you don't believe that there's a heaven up above
I tend to find the good in everyone
No longer staring down the barrel of a loaded gun
I'm going to place my bet when the sun will finally set
I'll take anything that I can get

When I fall asleep I forget how to dream
I'm bursting at the seams and all shall pass
It's seems to be there's nothing I can do
Some people need the strength of God to get them through

When I fall asleep I forget how to dream
I'm bursting at the seams and all shall pass
It's seems to be there's nothing I can do
Some people need the strength of God to get them through
Track Name: Country Rain
You left me alone again
You ditched me for a friend
How many times can this go on
Until we reach the end

I've been meaning to say
How beautiful you look today
Why does it always have to rain on me
When I'm trying to set you free

Welcome to my own place
It's where I rest my bones
I'll show you what I'm like inside
As soon as we're alone

I've been meaning to say
How beautiful you look today
Why does it always have to rain on me
When I'm trying to set you free
Track Name: The Stalker
Dance and sing around the fire tonight
Because tonight is almost gone
Come with me into a dark, dark place
Where we can get real high
And talk about all our fears in this life

And I'll be there in your dreams
Cause I've been there from the start
And I'll be watching every move from afar
Another stalker in the night
Will ever love you quite like me
And that's why I suppose that you
You change your identity

Hope you know that I've done this before
Because I'm clinically insane
They should've locked me in a padded room
And lobotomized my brain
I get the feeling you don't understand my pain

Now this song just took a dark, dark turn
I guess you better hide
This is like a movie come to life
Except the bad guy wins
You better pray that God will forgive your sins

And I'll be there in your dreams
Cause I've been there from the start
And I'll be watching every move from afar
Another stalker in the night
Will ever love you quite like me
And that's why I suppose that you
You change your identity
Track Name: Clean Up Your Act
I always knew that things would somehow be this way
And then the truth comes out in the lies that you convey

Clean up your act
Or you wont come back
I try to tell you but I just don't know
I try to tell you but I just don't know

Please help me find the strength to keep my body warm
It's far too dark to seek some shelter from the storm

Clean up your act
Or you wont come back
I try to tell you but I just don't know
I try to tell you but I just don't know

When you're out on the ledge you think about stepping off
But you're afraid of that ledge, it's what caused you to stop
No matter what they say, a breeze could've blown you away
There goes our hero
Track Name: Lonely Northern California Nights
Take me far away from my home
Take me far away from my home
Wont you please come with me
I can't be alone

These lonely Northern California nights
Can be so heavy on your heart, that's what I say
You can take a lot of pills and wash them down
With lots of stuff that will keep you up, all day
This is how I spend my time
Since you're so unkind, to me

And if you don't remember me
And if I'm too blind to see
The meaning of it all, rise before I fall
Fade away

Take me far away from my home
Take me far away from my home
Wont you please come with me
I can't be alone

I always hesitate whenever trouble
Seems to catch me,off guard
Cut me up with accusations
Then you tell happiness can be, so hard
This is why I always lie
When everything is going, so fine

And when life seems so incomplete
And I let your games get to me
I get up off the floor, prepare myself for more
And repeat
