Track Name: On the Air
I know I was, I was to blame
You'd make me come, I'd run away
Down alleys, through side streets
I'd shove you down, down on your knees

Sweat on your brim, it ran on down
It curled your lip, seen all around
The next day it'll go away
Oh but the night, the bitter taste

Now I'm too tired to explain
Where I was and why I've changed
We're on the air, this mic is on
How does it feel to be gone?
All I have are rooms filled with clocks
While the world stands in shock
If I could roll back time
I'd probably sit, watch it roll on by
Track Name: Come Clean
I know all about sin
I know I'll accomplish
It's all been around
I've seen it come down

We don't talk
About what matters to us
Say what you mean
The very least you'll come clean

I want to see you come round
I watched you go on up then go down
How heavy is your crown?
I wanna watch you go up then go down
What's this taste in my mouth?
I wanna watch you go up then go down
Track Name: Let the Cynic in Me Die
Its times like these
I'm so fed up with myself that I don't even know how to speak
Its like you focus on the pain but you know its not what you need
So take out that pen
Write it all down so you don't have to feel it again
You claim that you love the road but you don't want to see where it bends

Go on go on
Remember the words that used to make you smile
Go on go on
Remember the times you used to be like a child

Christ on a cross
I don't believe in his name but that don't mean I can't learn what he taught
Like a solider come, I don't agree with the war that he fought
So let the cynic in me die
I'm so obsessed with the rest that I can't even see my own life
The greener part of the grass was always the field, not the sideline
Track Name: I Want it All
I want it all

I watch you in doorways

Who am I?
My heart is on fire

How could you
Be so cruel
Please tell me you'll
Let me be
