Track Name: Know Thyself
I've been compromised
Can't keep up with my disguise
I sit around, sit down, settle in
But I'm not settled when I
Don't fit in, I can't fit in, I can't begin
to understand my inner man, your inner man
My inner man

It's a crying shame
That even though she knows her name
It's up for grabs, it's up for change
Like a spare tire just to play it safe
Whoa, whoa, whoa whoa
Whoa, whoa, whoa whoa

Sayin know thyself, do you know thyself
Do you know thyself, Do you know thyself

Do you know where your goin
Do you know what your showin
Do you know what your doin, whoa (x3)

Do you know where your goin
Do you know, Do you know, Do you know, Do you
know

Know thyself, do you know thyself
Do you know thyself, Do you know thyself
Track Name: Horizon
Makin my way through crowded streets
To get to where the questions cease but
I can’t take you there

Can’t stop to catch my breath
And I don’t know what happens next but
Will I find you there

Can’t tell you what’s on my mind today
If I could form the words, they would not come out anyway, No

Horizon falls before my eyes, but I can’t make it out
Is this where we’re supposed to meet
I thought I’d find some slight serenity,
Instead this panic’s taking over me

Another time, another day, another chance to make my way
To find the truth, it does exist; this is my means to happiness
If I should fall before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take
Before the crowd I say, I’m ready

Can’t tell you what’s on my mind today
If I could form the words, they would not come out anyway, no anyway

Can’t tell you, what’s on my mind today
If I could form the words, they would not come out anyway
Track Name: Sit Back,Relax
Every now and then I take a look at you and how you’ve been
People watching is my thing and
And every then and now I take a look at me and how I’ve been
Do I seem to win

And once a time or two, it’s you and me, me and you
We’re doin fine, half the time
Still I seem to worry, what’s the hurry

Can we sit back, relax, oh

Reality opens up my door and walks right in on my
I guess she’s got a private key and
She says, I’m not getting any younger
I’d like to shut the door right on her

But I’d open mine to you, and we could play it cool
We could shoot the breeze, not much left to do
But just sit back, relax,
Yea sit back, relax, oh

Still I seem to worry, what’s the hurry
Can we sit back, oh relax. Sit back, oh relax
Oh sit back, relax. Oh sit back, relax

Oh sit back kick your feet up on the table, lay around
We could sit back, oh relax

Oh sit back kick your feet up on the table, lay around
We could sit back, oh relax, oh
Track Name: Compromise
When I try my best to reach, you take a step behind
It’s impossible to right the wrongs, they say it all the time
They say we live, we learn, we toss and we turn
Attempting to survive
Can we retrace all our steps and revise

Its in the way you touch
Your silence says so much
Complete in solitude
You don’t know just what you do to me

Oh counting sheep to fall asleep
I can only do so much
Searching my mind, why I let you use me as your crutch

Oh, I learned to take the bad with the good
When I think about you, think about us, I know I should

It’s in the way you touch
Your silence says so much
Complete in solitude
You don’t know just what you do to me

As days go by and time does fly
It’s messin with my head
Wonderin if I should count my losses all instead

But people age and beauty fades
And this I know for sure
There’s one thing I can’t do without I’m tellin you

It is in you touch
Your silence says so much
Complete in solitude
You don’t know just what you do to me
Track Name: One on One Time
Took the long road home and drove all night
Suppose I kept on straight and left the world behind
I’m contemplating things can’t understand
And it’s all out of my hands

Rain is pouring on the rooftop of my heart
I’m miles away from home and it’s oh so dark
I’m driving down the highway of my mind
One on one time tonight

And I can’t stop the rain from pouring down
And I cannot take the sound
When it crashes and my world resounds, and you
You know what I need to start anew
Let it pour, whoa

I need a resolution,
Need an answer for the questions in my mind
To turn around is not an option
I’ve come this far, don’t you let me lose my mind


Don’t you let me lose my mind
Don’t you let me lose my mind
You won’t let me lose my mind
You won’t let me lose my mind

Won’t let me lose my mind, oh yeah
You won’t let me lose my mind, oh yeah
Said you won’t let me lose my mind, oh yeah
Track Name: Walk on By
Saw you yesterday you changed before my eyes
Looked into the past that you concealed
When you looked at me and tried to fabricate your lies
I decided that I’d change the way I feel

I don’t know why you think you can faze me
We’ve been here before
It’s not that easy, No, no, no, no, no

I see you coming my way
Walk on by, walk on by

Now it’s much too late to carry on a lover ‘s dream
But it’s never late to prove that I’m for real
Cause regret that’s spent reliving all the moments past
Is a feeling I will now refuse to feel

And I don’t know why
You think you can faze me
Try to search for rebirth but its left in the dirt
And there nothing you can do

I see you coming my way
Walk on by, walk on by

Now it’s a shame the situation had to end this way
Couldn’t see another path along the road
But I’ll take a second glance to tell you why we’re through
I don’t know just what to do but I can surely look to you

I see you coming my way
Walk on by, walk on by
Track Name: For You
Father
Theres a lot of things that I'm not proud
Made a lot of plans I left You out of
Now there's a lot of things that I'm unsure of

And lately,
Contemplating life and how You made me
Everyday I battle what's within me
Things I try to hide and yet You still see

I'm Sorry
Oh so many times, You've heard those words before
And maybe, a broken record is all that I'm good for
But today, I'm gonna break so I'll be broken, broken
Open for You, for You

Surely
Freedom comes to those who choose to be free
Turn around and choose the road less easy
Choose the road less easy

Oh and You said
Life with You should not be one of regret
Only You can now forgive and forget
You forgive and forget

I'm Sorry
Oh so many times, You've heard those words before
And maybe, a broken record is all that I'm good for
But today, I'm gonna break so I'll be broken, broken
Open for You, for You


For You, for You

Yea I've said these words before, Oh
Still You love me even more, Oh

I'm Sorry
Oh so many times, You've heard those words before
And maybe, a broken record is all that I'm good for
But today, I'm gonna break so I'll be broken, broken
Open for You, for You
