Track Name: Observer
(In this room I sit,
Looking out of a glass screen.
Viewing the world outside but never quite seeing anything. These walls of eggshell white are my only company besides some shelves, I know the drunks walking down the street just as well as I know myself.

How did I get here, with no door behind and with a latch I cannot open, no matter how hard I try? Cabin fever imminent, breathing the same stale air for years. Wish I was different somehow, maybe I could have gotten somewhere.

I just can't figure out what to be... I'm already doing what means the most to me... If someone tells me what I'm passionate about isn't my thing, they're definitely wrong...

But I could have been a doctor or a lawyer, someone who makes things right, or brings a person into their heart and saves their life. I was never meant for such a thing at all and I just feel like a bird who was meant to sing beautiful song but can only utter a dissonant caw.)

I'm a proud eagle who clipped his wings
The song I sing will never leave my head
Not even when I'm dead

Why is it so hard for me to say
What I feel and what I think?
Some things are better unsaid.

Hide my head in the sand
Look the other way when you turn in my direction
Why has it always been this way?

I'm confident in myself these days
I'll break this cage and learn to fly
I'm going to leave this valley of death behind.
Track Name: Death Valley
We are terminal from birth
Only fifteen seconds we are here
and then we disappear

I'll always be young in my heart
But I'm worried that my body won't be
Able to keep up

I just want to stand on my own two feet
As long as I can
March onward towards the meaning
Which drives us all

Why am I here?
To be loyal to my dearest friends?
Why do I want to stay?
Am I afraid of what lies at the end?
Track Name: Demons
You never know what you've had
Until it hits you like a bag of bricks
I need a way to escape
But there's no way out of this

When I'm in doubt
I'll shout my demons out
I'll shout my demons out
I'll shout my demons out

When I'm in doubt
I'll shout my demons out
I'll shout my demons out
I'll shout my demons out

We've had a falling out
I'll rectify this endless drought

I'll shout my demons out
Track Name: Heavenward
Well it's your last day on Earth
The one you know and love
You let go and closed your eyes
And I wasn't there to say goodbye

I look to the sky and wonder
If you ever think about me
The pouring rain on the roof
Is enough to make me believe

The clouds are clear and I know
That there's nothing in my way
So take that first step out
And live your life today

I look to the sky and wonder
If you ever think about me
The rays of the sun
Are enough to make me believe

I look to the floor and stumble
Will I ever be okay
Because time heals all wounds
You'll have strength to fight another day
Track Name: Solitude
I hate feeling alone
When I shut everyone out
It feels like I should have a choice
But I don't

Quivering in silence, staying scared
Never unaware
Just a moment of clarity, if you'd please
Set my mind at ease

I've always been this way
Trying to walk through walls everyday
Feeling danger in a world so safe
It's not so safe

Everything I say ricochets
And it repeats in my ears
But it never gets out
It's swallowed by fear

Staring at the wall again
That same old glass screen
And the latch that keeps me in
That locks me in

I've always been this way
Trying to walk through walls everyday
Feeling danger in a world so safe
It's not so safe

Everything I say ricochets
And it repeats in my ears
But it never gets out
It's swallowed by fear

I'm breaking out
