Without Me 02:32
Saw you crying on the roof Begging for some proof Cause you can’t live on without me. But if you’d try to speak To the ones in need Then you would see what’s behind me. Oh, but I cannot be my brother’s keeper, he’d ruin me. If that’s the truth, then I’ll be damned for then you’d create a hellish land No! Brother in the gutter Paper cup ‘n’ mother Begging on their knees: Father help us, please! Do you deny from them What you demand yourself That they’d go on without me? No, that’s not what I meant; I need these walls, so I can heal them. I need to keep them away from my lonely treasured heart, it’s the only one I’ve got, and it’s not for giving. Go! You say I’m demanding But it’s you there standing Seeking shelter from your own misgivings. Anger and hate A shameful trace You better go on without me

But I Lied 04:23
Do you feel the same Do you share the thoughts I got Do you feel the same but are afraid to speak your mind out Have you hidden your pain that Little torturer inside Have you sensed that stain it can’t be washed away I came to you with a humble thought to correct the wrongs and do what’s right I said I love you, but I lied… just to calm you down I said I love you, but I lied Not sure what you want, not sure what you expect of me If the one you see, is the one that you seek So show me what you’ve got, what’s your truth and what’s your lot Is your temper just a weapon, a shield of yourself A bastion around your heart I said I love you, but I lied... just to calm you down I said I love you, but I lied I said I love you, but I lied I said I want you, so I tried I said I need you, I cried I said I love you, but I lied…

All my best friends, they were there We had a few drinks and thoughts that we would share I show them my great plan, they tell I am mad But to stick to the same old beat that’s just sad So I left my former friends in their chairs to amuse themselves with Big Brother affairs I was certain of my purpose, and soon I’ll pull the curtains The remedy it is here, just wait and you’ll see The remedy it is here, just wait and see But what if I’m mistaken How do you protect your faith from breakin’… So I sought for the company of likewise minded and I asked of them for their guidance, but they told me everything, that I already knew And so I’m back to square one, where I once started But what if I’m mistaken How do you protect your faith from breakin’… A troubled mind and a troubled heart at the epicenter of worlds apart Climbing up the stairs to Sacré-Cœur to notice I’m not alone in the world Down in the valley, a drop in the sea On a mountain high you meet your martyrs’ dream There’s a journey of seeking things that can’t be sought and the devil on the street he can’t be bought But what if I’m mistaken How do you protect your faith from breakin’…

Crushed 02:37
Burn those letters of despair Erase the traces of failed love affairs Hide behind the make-up of truth or dare See if I care Nothing changes as times goes by The anger swells, a rising tide There’s more to love than meets the eye I swear Never will I ever feel that crushed It’s carved to the bone, the stone of my soul Cause once you’re crushed it goes on and on and on Once you’re crushed it goes on and on and on Traumatized or brutalized Diagnosed or mystified Swollen bellies and empty mouths From the fear to remember to the shame of that surrender Who is to defend her, am I that contender? But I’ve changed since that time Now I’m a different guy Never will I ever feel that crushed It’s carved to the bone, the stone of my soul Cause once you’re crushed it goes on and on and on Once you’re crushed it goes on and on and on…
