Track Name: Common Threads
It's all the same to me
It's all just fine to me

It never ends
God damn it never ends
Standing in the shadow of a city sky line
The history books will say we were a tragedy
But I think it's beautiful
All beautiful

The history books will say we were a tragedy
Is it so much to ask for some piece of mind?
Standing in the shadow of a city skyline
It's all the same to me

It's all okay to me
It's all the same to me

It never ends
God damn it never ends
Standing in the shadow of a city skyline
The history books will say we were a tragedy
But I think it's beautiful
All...

Today we touch the sky
Today we touch the sky
It's all the same to me
Track Name: A Whole New Lease On Life
Standing on the mountaintop
God, that was a long, long walk
Sun is shining, redefining everything I know
I'm aware of all my errors
But so what? I don't care
I'm free

Things have changed
I will never be the same
A whole new lease on life
Get busy living
Or else you're just dying

Sometimes, the best piece of advice
Is don't think twice
And sometimes, the finer things in life
Are worth the price

Things have changed
I will never be the same
A whole new lease on life
Get busy living
Or else you're just dying
Track Name: A Place To Call Home
Milling about aimlessly
What does this moment mean to me?
Wasting time, undefined
Got no place to go
Shadows grow long around me
But I don't ask for sympathy
I just wish that instantly
All I want could be mine

I just wish that willfully
You could behave sensibly
Indulge me in consistency
For just one single day
Moving unpredictably
Confusing me so skillfully
I must be shaken visibly
I just wanna find...

A place to call home
A place to call my own
A place to call home

No intention, no direction
Standing at this intersection
Engaging in introspection
For the millionth time
Lights are changing
We're all aging
People's lives are rearranging
I don't ask for sympathy
I just wanna find...

A place to call home
A place to call my own
A place to call home
Track Name: S.A.R.H.
The story's told
I'm getting old
And consequence is one thing
That never passes me by

Something ain't right here
I know
My feelings are clear
The words don't flow
It wasn't my idea

As for your concerns
The world turns
We'll all go on living
Our own lives

Something ain't right here
I know
My feelings are clear
The words don't flow
It wasn't my idea
To take it this far

The story's told
I'm not that bold
Don't want to hesitate
I walk a fine line

And so we come to
The crossroads
In the middle of nowhere
There's nowhere to go
And in spite of everything
I feel... just fine
I know I'll get yours
And you'll get mine

Something ain't right here
I know
My feelings are clear
The words don't flow
It wasn't my idea
To take it this far
