Track Name: A Question of Your Honesty
I'm not like them, riding on a whim
Costumes melt inside this heat

Some production
Self destruction
Smoke and mirrors isn't tough to beat
Track Name: Davey
Now the anthem you're looking for is still in the works
I haven't had the time to finish it
And although it hurts me to say
That I may not finish, and the war horns are blowing
You can take these sheets of paper
I don't need them where I'm going

I've got nowhere to turn, they've backed me up against a wall.
And I feel the rush, take a breath and open fire on them all.
So let me climb because you know that's why I'm still alive.
Davey don't you fire til you see the whites of their eyes.

Now the house lights are dimming. And the silence quickly falls.
And the lines you've practiced a thousand time can't compare to what the situation calls for. The big show's tonight, and you thought you were prepared. But the preparation was nothing compared to what it takes to be this great. So shut your mouth and load that gun, I tell you baby, we're gonna have some fun.

I've got nowhere to turn. They've backed me up against a wall.
And I feel the rush, take a breath and open fire on them all.
So let me climb because you know that's why I'm still alive.
Davey don't you fire til you see the whites of their eyes.

Track Name: Head on Straight
I've got my head on straight
So don't you hesitate to ask about the things you want to know
Well I know you know my name, my place, my face is turning red
With just the thought of your bed
So let's embrace in case we never meet again
And our time our time our time will soon be done
So don't refrain now, be tame now, restrain in our exchange now
This isn't love but I'll act like you're the one

So let's go out to the show
So please don't mistake all my glances
There's not a chance in the world
That I'll stay, be gone in a day.
So don't get attached to the feelings that you've come to obey

I feel your deep dark stare and now I'm more aware
That your intentions are in line with mine
So have another drink or two or three because I get my drinks for free And now it's clear to see
I feel I'm made of glass you see
You see through my mendacity
But the glass you see's not fragility it's transparency
Baby come with me
And take a chance with me
Maybe just one dance with me
Inhibition never got a girl too far
And I'm a star

So let's go out to the show
So please don't mistake all my glances
There's not a chance in the world
That I'll stay, be gone in a day.
So don't get attached to the feelings that you've come to obey

And now I hope that you were only bluffing too
'Cause I don't want the time we've had to end
But now I'm all alone in this
The notions my emotions guessed
It seems as though I've fallen in love again
Track Name: Hugh Jackman
I’m lost in haze, feels like I've been asleep for days

But somethings snaps inside of me, the veil’s been pierced I start to see, that I am not surrounded by my peers and I so I start to speak

Let me leave because I don’t foresee us starting
to agree on what happens to me
And I’ll go in peace unless you’d like to see
me take more lives than leaves does the autumn breeze

And I start to feel my patience slowly displaced by frustration
Til I snap, and all of that goes out the door

One deep breath, I know too much for them to let me
Get away without the repercussions kicking in and
That’s just fine, because the switch was flipped inside my mind
I want to watch the light fade from their eyes

And I say to myself, this is the most alive that I have felt
So if I die tonight please tell my tale
Of how I took the lives of men, with my bare hands, no sword or pen
Their dying breaths were swept into my sails

Oh and I feel the breeze oh how the taste is sweet
The choir of piercing screams, becomes my symphony.
And they can't retreat, and accidentally
they've cast me as the lead, to star their final scenes

And then there’s one man standing, says to himself
“I”m not ready to die”

But it’s too late, your friends have sealed your fate, and there’s just one loose end thats left for me to tie
He said, “just let me go, no one will ever know” and then he turned his head as if to say goodbye
I told him “not so fast. You can’t just leave like that, I’m here to call the shots” concluding my reply
And with one swift strike, I smiled and said “Goodnight.” Though not much of a fight at least the victory’s mine.
Track Name: Best Friends (Forever)
I’ve got those cherry red teeth
And one eye to see
We’ve got this lasting connection
Despite the lack of depth perception
And we’ll run till we drop
But you won’t let me keep up
Baby you’ll wake the neighbors if you don’t stop with all that screaming

Bury me six miles deep so that the sun I’ll never see
If I make it up I’ll call your bluff and make you just like me

You said forever we'd be
My fire burns for you deep
My new found form of affection
For your blood's in vain reciprocation will one day be mine
When you succumb in due time
This sickness far from divine will show you how you can love me

And it might be too late
To attempt to entertain
A plan of unscathed escape
Because you need to sleep and I don't take breaks
So accept when my breath
Beckons the hair on your neck
It's the final step before my success
And I still love you

Bury me six miles deep so that the sun I’ll never see
If I can make it up I’ll call your bluff and make you just like me

You better kill me good
For if I should your day won’t end so well
I’ll rip your frightened flesh while still conscious
So I’m not lonely in hell
Track Name: Darlin
Taking sides, faking minds will always laugh behind your back, darlin.
Don't turn back, nothing that can make me think that all we had was real
And if I say that nothing turns out right, I guess I'm fine.
Forget the time tonight

Do you know lengths I go so we don't break; carry that weight for you.
Find your feet. I'm not mean, I just have gone.
You'll find your song, listen.

And if I say that nothing turns out right, I guess I'll try to make you see.
You're nothing without me darlin

If nothing lasts forever then consider us something.
For all the fight's we've had have just led up to this one thing.
And when you feel the lights all cease to be, just remember
it was all because of me.

I hope you know that nothing turns out right
And nothing feels much worse than the bite, or the sting.
But I didn't take your voice

So baby just sing, oh sing.
Well baby just sing, oh sing.

So baby just sing, oh sing.
Well baby just sing, oh sing.

Well baby just sing, oh sing yeah.
Baby just sing, oh sing.
Track Name: Calculate This
Oh lord you've got things I wish had forgot,
Like the way you rip the breath from me in a single retinal shot

And you tied me up, we'll at least my tongue
With a touch so hot like the violet sun
An enticing trap your attention casts
On the thoughts of everyone yet it's not the first time I've been in your net

I don’t know what I expected to find
Those Bette Davis eyes and smile that burn me every single time
And I can calculate the situation, I can’t change the sign
I’m always left with the remainders of my self-inflicted lies

I won't fall, your so called confessions sound like serpent's singing sultry songs
If you'd try and let this die I'll slip into the darkness that you helped supply

I don’t know what I expected to find
Those Bette Davis eyes and smile that burn me every single time
And I can calculate the situation, I can’t change the sign
cause I’m always left with the remainders of my self-inflicted lies

Break the synapses that come between me and where I want to be
The only action that I can see is one that sets me free

(Get on your bikes and ride)
Track Name: Some Shine, Some Don't
Sometimes I just cant justify it even to myself
Because it seems my life so far could some day be a dream upon a shelf
Collecting dust, as my body starts to rust
But gold will never oxidize now’s not the time to compromise it all

For something less, confess the “sin” of wanting something more
First to yourself, then make it known by everyone that you
Will not be stricken by the same fears that have put them on their knees
And left them blissful in subdued complacency

Don’t embrace your thoughts of fate
And don't rely on the stars to shine light upon you
So love the chase to fill the space
And pour your heart out more than the rain that tries to douse your flame

The constant self reflection makes me doubt my every step
So humor me for just this once and siphon from the sea of my regrets
For things I’ve done, losing time with ones I love
Cause in my eyes reflections keep, the memories that have cut me deep

They all will ebb and flow from consciousness to somewhere down below
And be kept there to be recalled whenever I’m in need
Of feeling something that I left behind so long ago
Just know the hardest part of this was left behind the scenes

Don’t embrace your thoughts of fate
And don't rely on the stars to shine light upon you
So love the chase to fill the space
And pour your heart out more than the rain that tries to douse your flame

I can’t sing forever but I can try
And the day my voice gives is the day I die
I can’t sing forever but I can try
And the day my voice gives is the day I die

Don’t embrace your thoughts of fate
And don't rely on the stars to shine light upon you
So love the chase to fill the space
And pour your heart out even more than the rain that tries to douse your flame

That tries to douse your flame
That tries to douse your flame
(I can’t sing forever)
That tries to douse your flame
(I can’t sing forever)
Track Name: Have You Ever Had a Dream?
Close your eyes
I’ll be here when you rise and shine
Warm embrace,
such a lovely face I call mine

God I hope, I won’t need to know
How to make these feelings go away
If I do, I’ll always be blue
Even on the sunniest of days

From the start
We could never part our ways
Now I see,
Loosening her grip on me

God I hope, I won’t need to know
How to make these feelings go away
If I do, I’ll always be blue
Even on the sunniest of days

Then every word she speaks of love to me sound incomplete.
And mirrored by the dim and dying smile that she wears

Now she’s gone
And I’m moving on or so I say
Broke my soul
Piece it back to whole one day

God I hope, that someday I’ll know
How to make these feelings go away
If I don’t, I might have to go
Put a bullet straight into my brain
Kill the parts that loved to hear your name
Can’t help feel like, I’m the one to blame
Why oh why’d you have to go away
