Track Name: Think Twice
Nobody’s looking
No one can see
You’re all alone
And everything is free
So take what you can
And run for the door
Stealing is easy
Paying is a chore

You think that you’re alright
You think that you’re just fine
Cause nobody knows
You crossed the line

Don’t trick yourself
Don’t trick yourself
Don’t trick yourself
Think twice

If you don’t get caught
Does it mean that it’s okay
If nobody knows
Will you have to pay
If nobody knows
Will it go away
If nobody knows
Will that make you feel okay

Don’t think that you’re alright
Don’t think that you’re just fine
Cause somebody knows
You crossed the line
Track Name: Little Bit Long Way
A little more give, a little less take
A little more bend, a little less break
A little more fire, a little less spark
A little more light, a little less dark

Haven’t you heard a little bit goes a long way
Why don’t you try and listen to what I say
Haven’t you heard a little bit goes a long way
Yeah, a little bit goes a long long way

A little more walk, a little less talk
A little more awe, a little less shock
A little more truth, a little less lies
A little more yes, a little less why

You’ve gotta start somewhere
You’ve gotta start somehow
You’ve gotta start sometime
Why not now
Won’t you tell me what you’re waiting for
Track Name: On The Shore
Maybe, I lost my mind
Crazy, I feel this way all the time
Full promise in an empty glass
Trouble, heart’s getting cold
Rubble, I’m buried beneath control
False hope fading fast

Trust is lost out at sea
Faith on the shore
Decision in between
I hold my breath
Look for a sign
Something to believe
Cause I just don’t know what to do anymore

Maybe, it’s all in my head
Lately, all of the green turns to red
Bad timing shows up on cue
Worry, holds me too close
Hurry, it won’t let go
Quick thinking without a clue

Trust is lost out at sea
Faith on the shore
Decision in between
I hold my breath
Look for a sign
Something to believe
To believe
To believe
Track Name: Love Like A Stone
Birds take to the sky
As I jump into the fortress
Of your ever-giving arms
Your love is standing by
To lift me from the ashes
And keep me safe from harm
You’ll never leave me all alone

I’m never on my own
Even when I’m far from home
I’m never on my own
No matter where I roam
Cause your love is like a stone
It won’t break when it gets thrown
That’s why I’m never on my own
I’m never on my own

You are like a mountain
Strong enough to bear my weight
And unmoving from my side
I drink from your fountain
Inside the garden gate
Where both of us can hide
You’ll never leave me all alone
Track Name: Charming Alarm
She tempts you and taunts you with charms
As you hold her close in your arms
She’s leading you straight into harm
With a kiss, sound the alarm

It just takes one look from her watering eyes
To think that she’s finer than gold
But even her tears they are telling you lies
Oh brother that woman is cold

She wines you and dines you with lust
You take the bait and you give yourself up
Now she’s taking your love and your trust
To feed her fire, to fill her own cup

She wheels you and deals you for love
When are you gonna stop giving it up
Cause she’ll drain you of all that you have
Leaving you dry, driving you mad
Track Name: Charlatan
Twist and turn
Sting and burn
Chase your tricks
Never learn
Cheat and steal
Scheme and deal
Always feign
Never real

Charlatan masquerade
Hollow tongue serenade
Charlatan big charade
Criminal mind parade
Charlatan, Charlatan
Get away

Stretch and bend
Play pretend
Fool yourself
Fool your friends
Live a lie
Fake a smile
Give an inch
Take a mile

Leave
Track Name: Lament
Slow down you’re moving way too fast
You’ll hurt yourself
You fail to see the things that last
You’re missing out

Don’t have much time
To change your mind
Spent it all on whiskey and cheap wine
You can’t recall anything at all
You’ve left yourself behind

It’s true you’ve taken many risks
But at what expense
What have you got to show for it
An empty hearts lament

Catch your breath
Start breathing
The choice is yours and yours alone
Change your life
Start living
You’ve got to choose this on your own
Track Name: Tumbling Down
I could not pretend
You were on the fence
We were at the end
I was on the mend
How could I not see

We were tumbling down
Falling to the ground
We couldn’t see anything around
While we were tumbling down

You said you wanted out
No need to scream and shout
I know you had your doubts
That this would all work out
How could I not see

We were tumbling down
Falling to the ground
I think we’d both agree
We fell gracefully
While we were tumbling down

We went tumbling down
Track Name: IT
It’s when I need it, it disappears
Even though it hasn’t moved in years
The second I try to take it, it’s gone
When it counts, it all goes wrong

Somebody, someone help me find it
It seems to have slipped my grasp this time
Somebody, someone can you tell me
Where it’s gone and why it hides

It just sits there, I pay no mind
It’s when I’m in need, it’s hard to find
Doesn’t matter how hard I try
Won’t come back ‘til it’s off my mind

I need you to tell me
I need you to show me
I need you to help me
Let me know that it’s alright
Track Name: The Mirror's Always Right
You try to find
Some peace of mind
The stores are out
Can’t find it on the shelf
Oh well
You tried

Look to the left
The other side
Don’t dare look straight
The mirror's always right
It sees every crooked line

Don’t close your eyes
Don’t try to hide
That won’t make it go away
Don’t feed the lies
Forget your pride
This is bigger than today

You’re looking for
An open door
You’re on your knees
Looking for the keys
No luck
This time

Don’t close your eyes
Don’t try to hide
That won’t make it go away
Don’t feed the lies
Don’t say goodbye
This is bigger than today
