Track Name: Fighting For
Yes I am guilty for filling in the blanks
I'll take what you're giving me and assume certain things
It's funny how one sight can occupy my mind
Seeing only what I like for the rest of it I'm blind

I'm gonna charge
No time left for thinking
I'm gonna charge
While there's something in you worth fighting for

Yes I've been ridiculed for living life this way
I've got you on a pedestal but only I'm to blame
I've met you in the now and feeling love somehow
I can't explain just what I've found but I plan to find it out

Chorus

Descretion, a method, I'm not inclined to using
Delaying, a tactic, who likes their time abusing
Adrenaline, let it in, you let it in, Adrenaline
I've let it in and I'm rushing towards my choosing

Chorus
Track Name: When I'm Wrong
I take the red dotted line to your cottage
Leading from the whole in my head
It once was filled now it's unfulfilled
It's missin' the attention it had

Well I assume that you'll seclude when I'm wrong
Will you presume that I'll intrude when your gone

I got my sights dead set on your carriage
A mile for every meter you take
I felt so close now I must disclose
The feeling that she's stealing away

Chorus

I took a little too, a little too, a little too longx4

To apologize and for that I apologize
I realize I let my pride hide my wrongs I do
Do to you

You hear your name poppin' off of my larynx
You wait for explanations to shape
I said my part and I will depart
If my presence only resonates hate

Chorus
Track Name: Your Kiss
Imprints of your kiss make trouble
Your lips should have missed but I’m terrible
With permittin’ when I should be committin’
Imprints of your kiss make trouble

Things like this could clue my lover
But I can’t resist you so I’ll just cover you up

E-mails with pics cue suspicion
Females draw quickly her attention to
My behavior, there’s others I could savor
E-mails with pics cue suspicion

Things like this could clue my lover
But I can’t delete these so I’ll just cover them up

Knocking at my door at midnight
Shocking her way more when she sees the sight
She can’t take it, you’re standing nearly naked
AND KNOCKING AT MY DOOR, AT MIDNIGHT!

Things like that just told my lover
Now I’m in the cold with you….so I’ll cover you up

Imprints of your kiss make trouble
Your lips should have missed but I’m terrible
With permittin’ when I should be committin’
Imprints of your kiss make trouble

Things like this could clue my lover
But I can’t resist you so...I’ll just cover you up
Track Name: Twirlin' You
My hand's meant to graze across your left shoulder blade
Where it waits, for me to twirl you around
My hands do ache to twirl you around

I keep on twirlin' you to trick you into to my arms
I keep on twirlin' you in hopes to lure you home
I keep on twirlin' you my eyes may loose
yours for a second or two
I keep on twirlin' you just like you like me to do

Your dress makes me weep when it hangs past your knees
It'll plea for me to twirl you around
That dress was made to be twirled around

Chorus

Some man thinks he can cut between me and my woman
I'll be damned she's mine for twirlin' around
That man can sit on this and twirl around

Chorus
Track Name: Contemplating on You
I won't let go
I know I should though
I've set myself up to loose
I've seen you glimpsin'
Seen your intentions
Seems you don't want to refuse

My heart's on hold
'Cause you're hot then cold
I can help infatuate
Concentrating on you
My heart's been bruised
Baby, black and blue
It can't quite operate
Contemplating on you

I'll catch ya' smilin'
Just for awhile then
You kick me out on my own
You hear me sayin'
And God hears me prayin'
Where she is, make it my home

Chorus

Holdin', squeezin', down on my knees
'Cause you're leavin', teasin' that you'll eventually
Maybe be needing, pleading for me to let you in and just hold
Let me hold

I won't let you
I shouldn't have to
I can't keep holding it in
I try to contain it
My mind not to retain it
But you keep coming back up again and again

Chorus
Track Name: Annul
So if you're gonna leave me wait 'till I am drunk
My eyes won't ever notice you're gone untill I sober up
But when your absence hits me I'll fall into a funk
And I'll drink untill I just recall only alcohol

A-the answer to your probelm
N-never cried, N-never tried
U-know how this affects me
L-love I untill I die


So if you're gonna leave me drug me 'till I'm high
I'll appreciate the colors while you're saying your goodbye's
And when my heart feels empty, I'll up the quanity
I won't stop untill my thoughts inside, completely fried

Chorus

So if you're gonna leave me shoot me in the head
Then kick my corpse and check my pulse to see if I am dead
To you this might sound drastic, there's other ways instead
But my life has just been geared to do, only things for you
Track Name: The Cellar (The Zombie Song)
Shot and dragged, you made a mess
My blood slips through the
Cracks of floors where many more you’ve made a bed
Wrapped and dropped and covered up
This body’s bound, this heart has found
The ground can’t stop hate simmering
You’re going down
The dead will rise

Rich and poor and dozens more
Our pulse waits for a
Beat like heels that walk across this cellar floor
A nudge, a budge, a hungry grudge
We can’t fulfill, we’re laying still
We won’t reanimate until she steps inside
The dead will rise

Their hands from the ground take you by surprise
There’s blood in their eyes fueled by the lies
Stone cold grip to rip out the ties
Just look what you’ve done, I say look what you’ve done
The dead will, the dead will rise

Keep screaming loud x3
AHHHHH!

Their hands from the ground take you by surprise
There’s blood in their eyes fueled by the lies
Stone cold grip to rip out the ties
Just look what you’ve done…

Their hands from the ground
There’s blood in their eyes
A stone cold grip, to rip out the ties
Just look what you’ve done, I say look what you’ve done
The dead will rise, I say look what you’ve done the dead will, the dead will rise

Keep screaming loud x3
AHHHHH!
Track Name: Racket
You describe, something else
You denounce me as a resource though I said it myself
You quote me all wrong
All the spit, you would spray
Bit by bit, you rearrange me then you put me on display
To imply things I’ve done

You try to drown out my sound
That tactic can’t hack at my racket
Wisecracks comeback back at attack

You divide what you choose
Can’t decide, if, at any, long term damage you could do
I’m grounded and ready
You protest, with bad taste
A contest, to try and make the other make saltwater with their face
So profane and deadly

Chorus

Started with you, ended with you, thinking through my reply
Pacing with my hands out, shaking, eyes down, making
Mothers react, others retract, behind my back all black
Pondering your reasons, leavin’, grievin’, she’s been
Plotting all of, this time when our love, should have been all above, our problems
But something made you doubt me, not see, only , angry
She’s broken a vow, I’m fired up now, I’m telling it how it went down
I’m opening the front door, scream for, encore, once more THREE! FOUR!

You retreat, to your friends
I’ll repeat, to prevent you from ever messing up the end
You can’t keep me down!

Chorus x 2
