Track Name: Open Up
Oh it's hard, it's really hard to be what you want to be
Oh it's hard, it's really hard to show them what they can't see

You've got to open up for all to see
You've got to open up and be who you've got to be

Sometimes it seems so hard to wear my emotions on my sleeve
And I can't be anyone else but me, but me... oh no no no no no

You've got to open up for all to see
You've got to open up and be who you've got to be
You've got to open up for everyone to see
You've got to open up and be who you want to be
Track Name: Hiding in the Dark
I'm hiding in the dark away from everything I know today
And everyone around me goes their separate ways
I'm hiding in the dark away from you so I won't see your face
And everything around me is better than me

Cause today will be the day that we grow older and younger apart of me
This will be the day I hide out from my misery

In the dark away from everything I know today
And everyone around me is stronger than me
I'm hiding in the dark away from you so I won't see your face
And everyone around me is going on without me

No I don't wanna see your face
No I don't wanna see mine too

Cause today will be the day that we grow older and younger a part of me
This will be the day I hide out from my misery
Today will be the day that we grow older and younger a part of me
This will be the day I hide out for eternity

In the dark away from everything I know today
And everyone around me goes their separate ways
Track Name: Postcards ‌& Pictureframes
The night that I disappeared, I knew I would be gone for years
I had my reflection sitting in the palm of my hand
I had an idea, I had a plan

Don't save me, don't take me away
I'll be sure to send you postcards and pictureframes
Don't save me, let me go my own way
I'll be sure to send you postcards and pictureframes

Don't save me, don't take me away
I'll be sure to send you postcards and pictureframes
Don't save me, let me go my own way
I'll be sure to send you postcards and pictureframes
Track Name: Stranger On My Soul
There's a murmur in the darkness there's a stranger on my soul
Electrifying my senses leading me forward in control, oh
There's a pity in the darkness there's a stranger on my soul
Countenance unrecognizable leering at me in control, oh

Who will take control of the enemy this stranger on my soul?
Who will give up the fight who will be wrong and who right?

There's a glimmer in the darkness
There's a flicker of light
My conscience is heated
There's a flame set to ignite, oh

Who will take control of the enemy this stranger on my soul?
Who will give up the fight who will be wrong and who right?
Track Name: Where Does the Time Go?
Where does the time go I ask of you my friend?
Where does the time go and when will this end?
I've been waiting for an answer for one million years
I've been waiting for an answer through one million tears
What is the answer I ask of you my friend?
Do me justice please and make these tears end
When will we slow down this fast paced time?
When will we slow down and when will you be mine?
I've been looking in the mirror for one million years
I've been looking in the mirror assessing all my fears
So give me an answer my friend give me an answer if you can

Because the world keeps on spinning and everyone keeps winning
Progressing even further 'till everything is one big blur

Where does the time go I ask of you my friend?
Where does the time go and when will this end?

Please don't let me down.
Track Name: Waiting For This
Every time I walk by and I see you, I know
I know that I will never be closer to the truth

And I know it's never simple but that's just the way it is
And I won't, no I won't stop waiting for this

Everyone won't go away, away from you
But if you, if you want I'll make them, I'll make them to

And I know it's never simple but that's just the way it is
And I won't, no I won't stop waiting for this
And I know it's never simple but that's just the way it is
And I, I will never stop waiting for this, for you
Track Name: Symphony No. 7
"Think that was, uh, loud enough?
I think that was loud enough, yeah.
Yeah I'm pretty sure you got their attention you're all, you're all good to go!

One, two, three, four

Oh oh no, this is the, uh the is the broken one... ok, ok, yuup
Yep, yep this is good, ok. Yup, I'm ready to roll
Why am I even talking to you, there's uh, there's nobody there"

Oh, the instruments call me
Oh, the music beckons me
Track Name: Curiosity
Curiosity killed the one who traveled far enough to hear
That sound that woke the neighbors woke the town
Why'd she have to go she went (SAY) ignoring what her mother said
Ignoring generations past (LISTEN) ignoring the sounds of broken glass
(DIE) She killed she died she hurt she cried
It happened on that night that she so distant so remiss
From the world that blew her one final kiss
Curiosity took over her mind which ignored the rest of her kind
(SAY) But her and she knew when she heard the cry out of the blue
(DIE) She was finished this was it
But she stole one look and then
All at once she saw black as black as the cat that Curiosity killed
(DIE) And in turn she was killed by the booing of the crowd
The disturbances clear and loud
She took one final breath and prepared herself (prepared herself)
For the inevitable death
So young, so young of mind and heart she was destined from the start
(SAY) She was not made for here she knew she must go away
(LISTEN) Which way she didn't think she didn't act she didn't speak
Then one day (GO) she heard her own voice calling to her above the noise
The noiseless noise fading, and then all was silent.

Then it was up to her to do what she must
and finally she was set to rest as she died because.
Track Name: Snow Puppet
I gaze out of my window and see the freshly fallen snow
A beautiful blanket of white my eyes behold
A white dusting covers every tree
This place is an impeccable white as far as the eye can see
It's a clean slate serving to recreate
To avenge my past and start anew
I run outside I know not where
But I follow the voices I hear (come to me, oh come to me)
And my legs break out before me and I'm running
It feels so good just as I know it should
Suddenly there's a play before me
A puppet show carrying on through the thick white snow
I stop and watch hypnotized knowing this is where I should be
A part of myself beseeches me to run away free
The beautifully dressed puppets smile hauntingly
Each movement that they make is made perfectly
A sense of disquiet captures my body
I try to run but my legs no longer move willingly
I scream but no sound escapes my lips
My heart and soul tumble into a perpetual black abyss

THANK YOU FOR WATCHING, AND HAVE A NICE DAY :)
Track Name: Goodbye, Goodbye
When we were younger we never thought we would lose each other
But times have passed days have gone
And I know life must go on its way
And I know you'll be back again
but I'll be sorry to see you go, oh

Goodbye (goodbye) don't be so uptight and
Goodbye (goodbye) it will be alright and
Everyone will let you down
Goodbye (goodbye) don't be so uptight and
Goodbye (goodbye) it will be alright and
Everything will let you down

And everyone has passed and all the times that we will have
Just to meet you to see you go
I can see you growing old and feeling your pain all alone
Just to see you, to see you go away

Goodbye (goodbye) don't be so uptight and
Goodbye (goodbye) it will be alright and
Everyone will let you down

I'll miss you, ooh I'll miss you
I'll miss you until the day that I die
I'll miss you, ooh I'll miss you
But sometimes It's better not to cry

Goodbye (goodbye) don't be so uptight and
Goodbye (goodbye) it will be alright and
Everything will let you down
Goodbye (goodbye) don't be so uptight and
Goodbye (goodbye) it will be alright and
Everything will let you down
