Track Name: Six Feet Under
Here I go again she said
I thought that I'd escaped
But he's dragging me down
And pulling me in
I swear that I could die
Or maybe make him think I did
She wonders She wonders

All the pills in the world
In such a little girl
She's feeling like she's ten feet tall
And all the colors in the world
in such a little girl
She's looking like she's six feet under

So she emptied out her case
And spilled upon the floor
Every kind of pill
Every color in the world
She took them one by one
But somehow she had fallen asleep
He finds her now
He can't believe

All the pills in the world
In such a little girl
She's feeling like she's ten feet tall
And all the colors in the world
In such a little girl
She's looking like she's six feet under.
Track Name: Hollow
Peering through the condensation
Sifting through the rust
We've arrived where we departed
Circles made in dust
Take me where the signs are clearer
Through these shades of gray
Immolation of my senses
Burn it all away

I see another hollow morning
I see another hollow day

Telling tales with smoke and mirrors
Half truths still add up to lies
Violent beauty draws me nearer
Take away my eyes
Descending with the dawn
Falling on and on
Those who seek a new tomorrow
Find tomorrow's gone
I see another hollow morning
I see another hollow day
I see another hollow morning
I see another hollow day.
Track Name: Perfect (Dream)
When all the angels go away
And chaos rears it's head again
I find it hard not to smile
At the illusion of it all

And I know
It's so hard to see
This perfect light
This perfect dream
I've dreamed a thousand times before
A thousand times Maybe more or less
The price I pay to dream
This perfect dream.

It seems the devil's here to stay
Reflect in me my only friend
The shadows breathe and start to fade
As heaven courses through my veins

And I know
It's so hard to see
This perfect light
This perfect dream
I've dreamed a thousand times before
A thousand times
Maybe more or less
The price I pay to dream
This perfect dream.
Track Name: Common Things
Turn your mind to the brighter things
Turn your eyes to the beautiful
Let the dirt fall from your feet
Let it all seem so wonderful

Close your mind to the world and all it's suffering
Close your eyes to the pain and disease
We're so high above the common things
Heaven is all I can see

Children lie in the bloodied streets
Bodies rot on the killing floor
Turn the station Change your attitude
Give me sunshine Give me more

Turn your mind to the brighter things
Turn your eyes to the beautiful
Let the dirt fall from your feet
Let it seem so wonderful.
