Track Name: Home
Now shadows can not run,
From the people they become.
Hiding from the sun,
Well they become no one.

Well Peace she had a son.
When he found that he had none,
He went on the run,
But he was caught up by the sun.

They will follow you home,
They will follow you home.

Home.
Track Name: You Can Do Better Than Me, But I Hope You Don't
I'd like to become the man that,
I am supposed to be,
But I'm a rotten tooth in,
A mouth full of crooked teeth.

Now doing the right thing ain't easy,
It doesn't come naturally,
And now you can barely look at me,
And I can barely speak.

And love we used to know,
Where to find it,
These feelings, they don't go,
And I can't hide it.

Do you still want me?
You can't look at me,
I should say I'm sorry,
But my throat won't let me speak.

I've been hiding all my flaws,
But, you saw the truth on my face,
And now that it's all come crashing down,
You've handled it with so much grace.

So now you know all my secrets,
And yet you still talk to me,
Your love was the atomic bomb,
And my heart was Nagasaki.

And love I used to know,
Who the hell I was,
Now I can't shake your shadow,
I can't escape your ghost.

Do you still want me?
You can't look at me,
I should say I'm sorry,
But my throat won't let me speak.

Do you still want me,
I can hardly breath,
I should say I'm sorry,
You can do better than me.
Track Name: This Day
I've been waiting for change,
I want to see the world,
With fresh eyes again.

Broken, never the same,
Oh you have healed,
This broken heart again.

And this day everything will change.

I've been running for days,
When my feet gave in,
You carried my frame.

Weighed down by my guilt and shame,
You showed me mercy,
And took all the blame.

And this day everything will change,
This day everything will change.

And I've been a fool,
And yet you still love,

And I've been a fool,
And yet you still love me.

This day everything will change.
Track Name: Houston In The Blind
Waiting for the waves to rise,
Waiting for some peace,
I've been here a thousand times,
Drowning in my sleep.

So what if I don't ever come back,
It wouldn't be so bad.
And what if I stay here in my sleep,
At least you're in my dreams.

Call on you, you don't call back,
A game of hide and seek.
Falling through the faults the cracks,
Here you hold onto me.

So what if I don't ever come back,
It wouldn't be so bad.
And what if I stay here in my sleep,
At least you're in my dreams.

So what if I don't ever come back,
So what if I don't ever come back.
