Track Name: The Road
(words by jm ethier)

living a life that isn't mine
darkness creeping up from behind
turning down the switch I will feel no pain
just as long I'm left alone

can you hear me
I'm walking down my road
can you see me
flipping out

I don't care about your time
your life is yours to decide
please keep your comments to yourself you jerk
I won't even notice you

can you feel me
I'm taking control
can you see me
just disappear

(june 2014)
Track Name: Filter
(words by jm ethier)

ask yourself the question
do we really belong together
I don't know

speaking through this filter
I will hide all affection
I feel safe from pain

just look into my eye's
push away the lies and I know
your afraid of us
I can feel your tide
washing me away
I need you

fight off every single feeling of despair
let go

I will always hold you
wishing things were different from the start
bend every single phrase
loving you from the bottom of my heart and back

twist and turn everynight keeping my filter up to hide myself

Track Name: Lost Youth
(words by jm ethier)

living in a state of illusion
I guess i'm not the only one
you've always seemed so familiar
have we met once before

In a state of confusion
for the rest of my life
we were never meant to be
anything but friends

but it feels so right
and I can't let you go
and I feel so alone without you now

endless summer nights of sweet talks and confessions to be told
nothing has really changed much
at least our memories are still alive

appreciating all the late calls
my dearest friend to the end
remembering that game of risk
when you took the middle east

everything is fine now
and everything is said
now our path is set
you can always count on me
