Track Name: Watch Me Stumble
Watch Me Stumble

I barely ever pray
But the sun shines anyway
As time lingers, life shimmers through
Watch me stumble

There’s nothing left to say
But the band plays anyway
So I dance like I walk like I rhyme
Watch me stumble

But don’t cry
Don’t try to lend a hand, it won’t get easier
Don’t cry
I’ll dive close to the ground and I won’t quit until I drown
These days go by, that’s all I fear
Although I try to keep them near

My friends are getting old
One by one they had to fold
Since I can’t read the cards, I’ll raise you by a broken heart
Watch me stumble

But don’t cry
Don’t try to lend a hand, it won’t get easier
Don’t cry
I’ll dive close to the ground and I won’t quit until I drown

You’ve riddled me with doubt
I’ll have to run to sweat it out
The spirit in my limbs burns like a camel in the wind
Watch me stumble
Track Name: Safe Haven
Safe Haven


You remain my safe haven
My shelter from the rain
At the end of all craving
There’s a life without shame

Under our very own sky
Where the angels still fly
Our love remains sacred
And our hopes never die

I believe in this love
Just as long as my heart bleeds on
I believe in this love
I believe in every lie that keeps us strong

I’d better be proud
I’d better get over you
But I come as you need me to
Bowed and devout

And down on my knees
I will pass time’s infinity
Trying to grasp your divinity
Oh, my world is at peace now

Cause I believe in this love
Just as long as my heart bleeds on
I believe in this love
And I believe that you’ll remain my safe haven
My shelter from the rain
At the end of all craving
There’s a life without shame

Under our very own sky
Where the angels still fly
Our love remains sacred
And our hopes never die

I believe in this love
Just as long as my heart bleeds on
I believe in this love
Just as long as the sun stays on
I believe in this love
I believe in every lie that keeps us strong
Track Name: Whatever
Whatever

I’ll go out of my way
To find a place for us to stay
Just try and meet me halfway there

I’ll walk that extra mile
To find whatever makes you smile
You just keep waiting over there

I’ll be whatever keeps you by my side
Whatever works, I won’t leave it untried
I’ll be running your way until we collide
Once the tears have dried

I’ll clean up my act, this might take me a day
I will study my part and I’ll get into your play
I’ll just need you to script out my way

And when the birds disappear, it’s their song that I sing
Now that winter is near, our chances are thin
We met on a cloudy day, way after spring

I’ll be whatever keeps you by my side
Whatever works, I won’t leave it untried
I’ll be running your way until we collide
Once the tears have dried, whatever makes me care just leaves me

And all the love songs are meant to alert
We know that God intended love to hurt
All the love songs will lead us to despair
The brighter we burn, the sooner we’ll use up the air

I’ll be whatever keeps you by my side
Whatever works, I won’t leave it untried
I’ll be running your way until we collide
Once the tears have dried, whatever makes me care just leaves me cynical
Track Name: Magic
Magic

From dusk til dawn
You drag me on and on and on with me
And my spirit leaks all over
Every corpse you leave behind

You're on my mind
You spoil whatever part you sever from my heart and then
You toss me like a wrapper
With nothing left to keep

You'll reep what you sow
If you don't believe in magic
Don't come to my show
If you don't believe in magic
Don't come to my show
Where every beat bears a storm
If you don't believe in magic
Don't expect me to perform

You let the treasure sink too deep now
I know you're breath won't last to get you past the cold and cheap
I'll help you take the heat
But I'm not here to help you sleep

You'll reep what you sow
If you don't believe in magic
Don't come to my show
If you don't believe in magic
Don't come to my show
Where every beat bears a storm
If you don't believe in magic
Don't expect me to perform
Track Name: Dreams Of Anna
Dreams of Anna


The thrill is gone, the lights are out
Anna tells me to be proud
Many have died trying to climb
The staggering heights I now call mine
Anna will guide me through this time

When clouds are thick and the sun‘s too high
The leaves of autumn softly sigh
All good stories have been told
Mother earth‘s slaughtered and sold
But let‘s not cry, the bitch got old


I should have known there‘s a downside to every dreamworld
Cause life looks so much worse
Dreams of Anna leave me cursed

The nightmare‘s ending once the sun’s descending
And I close my eyes to breathe
Dreams of Anna bring me peace
Anna gets me to my knees
Anna will always wait for me


The sweetest dreams are not enough
They turn me on but won‘t get me off
Without release the tension grows
Until the curtain falls an no one knows
Why Anna leaves and where Anna goes

I put my book back on the shelf
And carve my prayers into stone
God helps those who help themselves
And leaves me back here on my own
Anna will get me through the night

Anna gets the way I write
My lack of symbols to describe
The way my mind creates a world
That sober eyes can not survive
Anna, keep me in the shade

Dreams of a non-narcotic aid
My head on Anna‘s shoulder blade
For once I rest within my wealth
With Anna‘s help I‘ll reach the health
To reunite me with myself
