Track Name: Take Me Over
Who cares where, it all started
Promises disregarded
And again you have bought it
Alone we will never stop it (no pickups)

If we stay on the surface
It is not even worth it
Deeper then, find the purpose
If you don’t, you deserve it (you, you deserve it)

They say
Take me, take me over
Take me take, what should I say?
Take me, take me over
Take me take

Take me, take me over
Take me take, I will obey
Take me, take me over
Take me take

Look around while we’re fighting,
Hidden by fancy lighting
What are we inviting?
Who is doing the writing?

Do you know where their going,
what kind of hand they are showing?
Is it worth, not knowing?
Whose seeds are, are you sowing?

They say
Take me, take me over
Take me take, what should I say?
Take me, take me over
Take me take

Take me, take me over
Take me take, I will obey
Take me, take me over
Take me take
Track Name: Illuminate
When darkness falls, what should we all do--
Walk to the beat that we all are told to?
If that is true, how am I not you?
So turn out the light, and run straight through the night.

Long black
Highway.
I want to turn
To go
My way.
Want to go
Against
The grain,
But we don’t need to illuminate.

When darkness falls, what should we all do--
Walk to the beat that we all are told to?
If that is true, how am I not you?
So turn out the light, and run straight through the night.

Small crack,
Open,
But will it close.
Nothing
Spoken,
All alone.
Dreaming
My way.
Don’t need morning to illuminate.

When darkness falls, what should we all do--
Walk to the beat that we all are told to?
If that is true, how am I not you?
So turn out the light, and run straight through the night.
Track Name: Eclipse
Searching in the night,
Only time he’s bright.
Dark and cold inside,
Hiding shy in daylight.

Working through the day,
Blazing clouds away . [keeping clouds at bay]
She’ll sleep till morning breaks,
Waiting all the same.

They align,
For a short time,
Passing by,
A callous design, in our sky.

Do the people know,
All three in a row.
A temporary halo,
But soon it will go.

They align,
For a short time,
Passing by,
A callous design, in our sky.
Track Name: Twenty-Five
Through hazy eyes I see them waiting.
Which way are they all facing?
Aching back says, "I’ve been here too long too."
We’re waiting for a train that isn’t coming.

Maybe slow is better than never.
Maybe it will turn out alright.
If I walk at least I can decide.

Who,
at twenty five,
Has a clue if they’re right?
You assume
that you know
What to do and where to go.

Weaving out of the empty crowd,
Flickering shadow of a doubt.
Dim moonlit faces I see behind me--
Do they recall for what they once were waiting?

Who,
at twenty five,
Has a clue if they’re right?
You assume
that you know
What to do and where to go.
Track Name: Straight Through the Night
Straight through the night.
Straight through the night.
