Think Twice 05:39
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
2.
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

On The Shore 05:45
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
4.
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
5.
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

Charlatan 04:03
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
7.
Lament 03:57
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
8.
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
9.
IT 03:32
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
10.
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
